Many men and women do not think about finding a legal professional right up until they are in desperate need. The legal dilemma could be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust attorney. It may be a felony case you will need to be defended on. Businesses need to have attorneys as well, no matter whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or potentially not fair business practices. Tax attorneys are also useful any time interacting with government troubles. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A huge, full service law firm has a lot of attorneys with distinct areas of experience, so relying on your legal issue, you can immediately hold on to the very best legal representative to satisfy your up-to-date need without having to commence your search each time you need legal help.It is most effective to find a lawyer or attorney you can have faith in. You need one with a decent track record, who istrustworthy, productive, and wins cases. You want to have trust that they will defend you accurately and charge you fairly for their products and services. Occasionally a word of mouth from a colleague or business affiliate can be useful, having said that you should hold your options open and evaluate all the firms available, because when you want legal help, you need it immediately and you desire the best you can afford.

How Do I Find A Good Medical Malpractice Attorney? Search Engines, Referrals, What Can I Use?
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Medical Malpractice/Personal Injury matters. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account? (Usually personal injury matters are paid at the end, on a "contingency" (percentage) basis.)
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
And be patient - medical malpractice cases can take 1 - 2 years (or longer) sometimes.
DON'T SIGN ANYTHING without consulting with an attorney first!
Your #1 concern is to make sure your medical bills get paid.
My guess is about 10% of personal injury matters end up in Court. BUT, when you go to a law office for a personal injury case, the attorney will immediately start preparing the matter as if it IS going to go to Court. Because they don't know for sure. So they start preparing the documents, etc. as though the case will go to Court. Most cases "settle".
This is very similar to a chess game. I have seen MANY personal injury/medical malpractice cases get settled the day before the matter was scheduled for Court It is usually resolved by the attorneys playing out their chess moves.
One thing I want to make you aware of: When someone has been involved in a medical malpractice matter, a "clock" starts ticking. If you wait too long, nothing will be able to be done for you. My suggestion is to call a lawyer asap.
Good luck to you.

Legal Advice Or Any Advice Regarding Car Phone Warehouse? Help!!!! Miss Sold A Contract What Are My Rights?
Help!.... Basically Earlier This Year I Purchased A Mobile Phone Contract From Car Phone Warehouse For A Friend Under The Circumstances That The Contract Could Later Be Changed Into My Friends Name When Hes Bank Account Had Finished Being Set Up And It Would Have Nothing To Do With Myself. The Staff Member Serving Me Confirmed That This Could Be Done And She Even Double Checked With The Manager Of The Store Who Confirmed It Would Not Be A Problem. So I Took Out The Contract Under Those Circumstances And Those Circumstances Only. Once My Friends Bank Account Got Set Up We Phoned To Try And Change The Contract Into His Name And 02 Said It Was Impossible And They Have Not Been Changing Contract Holders Names For Over 3 Years I Was Furious So I Changed All Other Details Ie Address And Bank Account And Then 02 Told Me That Car Phone Warehouse Miss Sold Me The Contract And They Were Liable To Cancel It Basically Its A Really Long Story But Below Is The Letter With All Details Of The Incident That I Sent To Car Phone Warehouse............ Please Read And Any Help Would Be Amazing.
To Whom It May Concern
On Friday The 2Nd Of January 2009, I Entered Carphone Warehouse With Mr Wilson. I Spoke To Kelly Crossley A Sales Assistant (If I Remember Correctly She Was Also New To Your Staff), About Setting Up A Contract For Mr Wilson In My Name As His Bank Account Was Not Yet Set Up. I Asked Miss Crossley If I Set Up The Contract In My Name For The Time Being All Details Of The Account Could Be Changed Into Mr Wilson’S Name, Including The Contract Itself. She Then Confirmed This With The Branch Manager. Both Staff Members Said Yes, So I Agreed To Set Up The Contract On That Condition Only.
The First Bill Was Due Around The 19Th Of January, But Mr Wilson Did Not Receive His Bank Account Details Through The Post Until Around The 14Th Of January. Both Mr Wilson And Myself Then Called O2 From The Mobile Phone On The 17Th Of January And Asked The Staff Member To Change The Details Into His Name. We Were Then Told That It Was Impossible And O2 Did Not Transfer Contracts. After Asking A Lot Of Questions And Making It Very Clear I Was Missold The Contract, O2 Then Told Me That The Only Thing They Could Do Now The Contract Was Set Up, Was To Change All Other Details I.E. The Address Of The Account And The Bank Details Into Mr Wilson’S Name. So We Did This For The Time Being. After Seeking Some Advice I Then Called Again On Saturday The 24Th Of January And Found Out That Mr Wilson Had Cancelled His Direct Debit. I Tried Once Again To Move The Account Into His Name But With No Joy… So My Next Step Was To Try And Cancel The Contract Itself. O2 Informed Me That The Only Way I Could Do So Was To Pay A Lump Sum Of All Payments For The £45 A Month 18Month Contract, As This Of Course Was Impossible For Myself To Afford, I Once Again Left With No Problems Solved. I Then Tried Again On The 4Th Of February With No Joy. And Since The 6Th Of February Mr Wilson Has Been No Longer Available To Reach. After Many Attempts To Reach Mr Wilson, I Called O2 Again On The 17Th Of February. And Was Finally Helped By A Staff Member Called Jay (Extension Number Available Upon Request). She Told Me That I Had Been Dealing With The Wrong Company And As Carphone Warehouse Missold Me The Contract, It Is Therefore Void And They Themselves Are Liable To Cancel The Contract. I Then Went Into Carphone Warehouse On The 21St Of February And Have Been Dealing With Yourself Ever Since. On That Day I Explained The Problem To Your Staff And Once Again Was Misinformed That I Could Change The Account Holders Name From Mine To Mr Wilson’S - I Told Them I Had Spoken To O2 And They Had Told Me I Couldn’T Change The Account Holders Name. So You Then Called O2 Directly To Confirm This Information And Were Told That O2 Do Not Change The Account Holder And These Terms Have Been In Action For The Past 3 Years. Please Know That The Contract Was Not Taken Out With The Intention Of Myself Being Liable For Mr Wilson For The Next 18Months, Your Staff Made The Sale On The Bases Alone That It Could Be Transferred Into His Name, Otherwise I Would Not Have Signed Anything. Therefore The Contract Was Sold Under False Pretences And Is, As Was Indicated By Kelly Crossley, Null And Void. This Is Now The Responsibility Of Carphone Warehouse To Terminate The Contract. Failure To Do So Will Leave Me With No Choice But The Refer The Matter To The Regulator. I Do Not Wish To Have Bad Credit Rating Due To Your Staff Not Knowing The Terms And Conditions Of The Contracts Being Sold In Your Store. I Keenly Await Conformation Of The Termination Of The Contract.
I would speak to citizens advice about this for better info as to cancel the contract you have to deal with the service provider as carphone warehouse are kinda like the middleman could you not try speaking to o2 again and plead your case with them they may well do it as a good will gesture unless you have any proof of carphone warehouse incorrect info you may well be stuck
take a look at the link its a forum discussing o2 and 1 of the answers on there is to sell the contract to someone else it may be worth a try it shouldn't matter to them who's name is on the contract as long as they get paid i'd certainly give them a ring and suggest it
When Choosing A Lawyer For Child Custody?
Is It Better To Hire A Male Or Female To Represent A Father?
A women lawyer is a nice tool to soften your opposition. However, in the courts eyes it doesn't matter.
Go to the court house at 8:00am and observe other lawyers , and how they carry themselves. Organized , stressed, relaxed etc... and you will find your holly grail.
Just a sidenote: get the book Custody for Fathers
Important Need Good Legal Advice Please Help?
Ok Im 16 And Want To Move Out What Do I Do I Live In Tx And I Just Cant Stand My Aunt She Is My Garduin I Want Out
If you want good legal advice, then seek an attorney, not those of us here on YA. Most of us are not lawyers even though we may be very familiar with certain types of law.
Your opinion of your aunt will not be the deciding factor in where you live or with whom you live. That must be determined by a court of law and is subject to all findings of the court when it comes to what is in your best interests, not what you might want or not want.
If you believe that your aunt is abusing you in any way, you can contact social services in your area and tell them your story. But...do not exaggerate. That will eventually be held against you having any say whatsoever.
Must Lawyers Be Fingerprinted To Practice Law?
Are Lawyers Required To Be Fingerprinted Before Practicing Law In All 50 States? Research Paper For School. I Google It But Fingerprints And Lawyers Only Brings Up Case Law. Hoping To Hear From Someone Who Knows First Hand And Could Point Me To A Source. Thanks
Yes, before the attorney has taken the bar exam, they must submit to a fingerprint and background check before they can take their first case. After the background check is completed and the attorney is cleared, they will get their license to practice law.
What'S The Difference Between A Statutory Law And A Constitutional Law?
I Was On Wikipedia And They Show A Map Of The United States. They Use Different Colors To Represent The States Laws About Same-Sex Marriage, I'M Not Going To List Them All But Mississippi, Tennessee, & Missouri Are Red And That Means &Quot;Constitution Bans Same-Sex Marriage&Quot;. But Pennsylvania, West Virginia, & Virginia Are Light Red And That Means &Quot;Statute Bans Same-Sex Marriage&Quot;..
I Just Dont Understand The Difference Between The Constitution Ban & Statue Ban..
And Furthermore Are They Talking About Their Own Personal Constitution Or The Countries Constitution, Any Help Would Be Great... And I'M Not Here Debating Same Sex Marriage I Just Wanna Know What The Difference Between A Statutory Law And A Constitutional Law Is, Lol.
Constitutional law has higher authority than statutory law. Statutes can be and most often are adopted by the state legislature and if a statute is deemed by the courts of the state to be a violation of the state constitution, then the statute is unconstitutional. But the state constitutions are adopted by the voters of the state themselves. The process of amending state constitutions is often much harder than the process of passing a bill out of the state legislature.
A reason why a state might adopt a provision into the state constitution to ban gay marriage is to prevent the courts from legalizing gay marriage via an "interpretation" of the state constitution. Once the state constitution explicitly says gay marriage is banned, then the courts will obviously not render that interpretation.
