Is It Worth Paying A Dui Lawyer?
Is It Worth Paying A Dui Lawyer For Defense? Can They Reduce Charges?
It's the only chance you have of getting the charges reduced. You won't get them reduced on your own.
In my state, the lawyer goes over all the paperwork and evidence for the arrest and looks for errors. And there is a lot of paperwork with a dui arrest. If he can find a big enough mistake then he can try and get the charges reduced.
If you have friends in law enforcement or the court system, ask around and find out who the best dui lawyer in your area is.
But, expect to pay a $5000 retainer to get started. It's not going to be cheap.
Only you can decide if it's worth it.
What Does The Credentials "Esq" And "P.A." Mean In Attorneys? Why The Difference?
Also, Why Are There Two Names: Lawyer And Attorney?, Thanks
Esquire is a title sometimes appended to the end of a lawyers name. Used as an honorific usually in its abbreviated form, especially after the name of an attorney or a consular officer such as John Smith, Esq.
The "PA" stands for "Practicing Attorney" or an individual recognized by law to be actively working at a profession, especially in law.
Lawyer or attorney...no difference...just different words. Somewhat like "fireman" and "firefighter" or "cop" and "policeman."
What Legal Recource Do I Have Against My Brother And His Family? They Stole My Money, Property, And Told Me..
I Am Denied Access The Buildings That I Built And Paid For (To Shelter Me And My Possesions).
I Was Promised A Safe Home ( I Am Disabled-Heart Damage). Their (Addict)Adult Children Moved Back Home And Stole From Me To Support Their Drug Habits, Etc.. My Brother And His Wife Denied It Until It Was Proven To Them. My Brother, And His Wife, Are Also Guilty Of Stealing From Me, And Allowing Themselves And Their Offspring To Abuse Me. Their Sons Confessed To, Or Were Caught In The Act Of Crimes By, Both Parents. I Was Threatened That I Would Loose My Home If I Didn'T Let Them Handle The Situation. The Abuse Continued And I Fled For Safety.
They Have Treated Me As Though I Betrayed &Quot;Family&Quot; By My Naive Ideology Of Right And Wrong.
I Was So Traumatized That I Spent Two Month In A Mental Has Hospital That Specializes In Emotional Trauma. I Receive Treatment From A Psychiatrist And A Psychologist. The Cost In Property And Related Medical Expense
The first thing you want to do is call the legal aid agency nearest to where you live. They might not take any new cases until after the new year but it would be in your best interest to call them. You can find the closest one to you by using www.yellowpages.com or by simply searching it on Yahoo or Google. From there, speak to a lawyer and get their legal opinion. If you can prove that they promised to shelter you and then kicked you out because of drug addicts then it sounds to me like you've got a case against them, for costs of your property, medical bills and emotional distress they caused you. Good luck!
Getting Into Law School?
I Have A 2.9 Gpa In Biochemistry, Due Mainly To Math, But I Am Very Good At Reading And Writing And The Like. I Am An Emt On A Volunteer Ambulance. If I Do Well On The Lsat (Which I Believe I Could) Do I Have A Shot At Law School?
No offense but you're asking the wrong question. Getting into a law school is not hard in the United States. There are plenty of law schools that are more than happy to enroll anyone with mediocre grades and LSAT scores and charge them upwards of $100k in tuition without any regard as to whether the person really has a chance at becoming a successful lawyer. After you graduate from one of these law schools like Cooley or John Marshall you will probably have no job or a job that pays no more than what you could have gotten paid without a law degree, over $100k in non-dischargable student loans, and no future prospects at becoming successful as a lawyer. There are currently lots of graduates from these law schools that are waiting tables, working as paralegals, or chasing ambulances for a small private practice for less than $30k in annual salary.
Regardless of your LSAT score, with a mediocre GPA you are not going to get into any top law school and odds are more likely that you will end up at one of the aforementioned mediocre law schools if you decide to pursue this. I have seen lots of people in your situation engage in an act of self-deception, trying to convince themselves that they could do well as a lawyer only to end up extremely unhappy with the results after graduation.
How well thought out is your plan to become a lawyer? Your background seems to indicate that you are aborting pursuit of a medical career. When people run away from one career path they often make very poor decisions in choosing an alternate career path. I suggest you research heavily into the status of the legal field before you run blindly from one career path into one that could be infinitely worse. You can start by reading some of the websites and blogs for lawyers that I have placed below. If you still think it is a good idea after reading them then by all means go ahead. At least at that point you will be making an informed decision.
Is This A Standard Custody Agreement?
My Wife And Her Ex Husband Are Currently Going Through A Relatively Un-Nasty Dispute, But I Fear That Soon Things Will Take A Turn For The Worse.
The Ex Is Requesting A Modification To The Current Custody Agreement, Which We Agree Is Needed. However In The Proposed Agreement, Which He States Is A &Quot;Standard&Quot; Agreement For The County In Which The Case Is Being Tried, It States That The Child Will Spend Every Other Week, During The Summer, With The Father.
The Child Despises Going To His Father'S On Weekends As It Is, We Can'T Fathom The Idea Of Forcing Him To Go For A Week At A Time, Is This Truly Standard? The Only Place I Can Find A Copy Of This &Quot;Standard&Quot; Agreement Is On A Local Attorney'S Website, Which Leads Me To Believe It Something This Attorney Has Cooked Up For His Clients.
At What Age Does The Childs Opinion Begin To Matter?
What Chance Do We Have Of Avoiding This If We Go Back To Court?
What Do I Do? We Hate Lawyers, They Are A Waste Of Money And Tim
There usually is a standard agreement. I had one funny thing is she lived in KY and I lived in TX and It read like I lived next door. Since my divorce I have been in the legal field and I wish I knew what I know now. Most of the answers I say may vary from state to state. What age does the child's opinion matter usually 12 yrs, but that depends on the Judge and or state. You can can Pro Se on this issue (on your own), File your own motions to avoid paying for a lawyers. As far as avoiding going to court. If you to have agreement then your chances are good, file a stipulated agreement. If no agreement then it might need a hearing. Check with the court house and see about the forms, fees, any pro se classes before you do anything. The more you know now the better thing will be down the road.
What Is The Bottoms-Up Theory By Means Of Constitutional Law And Posner?
Posner takes a perspective of Constitutional law from the judges who make the decisions. In that sense, it is a bottom-up approach with the "up" being the document itself. If you have access to westlaw or lexisnexus, the citation for his article is 56 Geo. Wash. L. Rev. 4. The name of the article is "The Constitution as an Economic Document."
Posner, as a member of the Chicago school of economics, is concerned with the theory that judges make policy decisions based on the economic consequences of a ruling.
In general, a bottom up approach concerns legal criticism with particular aspects in action rather than broad concepts. A bottom up approach to contract law involves the study of offer and acceptance rather than the statutory framework of the uniform commercial code such as the distinction between and classification of merchant and non-merchant. Most study of law is a bottom up approach whereby the overarching concepts are revealed through the rulings of individual cases. A constitutional law course does not involve a reading of the document itself followed by a bunch of law review articles, but reading the cases which interpreted it and the problems of society the cases were addressing. A student takes the bottom, the cases, and reaches an understanding of the top, the Constitution.
The bottoms-up theory could be classified as a use of the philosophy of legal realism in legal criticism.
You should note that Posner is concerned with economically efficient outcomes and not morality. A breach of contract may be morally reprehensible, but it is Posner's belief that merely economic damages should govern the law of contracts and the law should not punish for the breach i.e. if a party breaches a $10k contract in order to sell the same goods to another for $25k, the party SHOULD breach the contract and pay the non-breaching party $10k under Posner's view. Posner believes that judges can stimulate economic growth through upholding constitutional protections in commerce, but he also believes that the Constitution is a limitation on judges from choosing what might be the most economically efficient decision.
