Finding An Experienced Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will see that there are loads of lawyers in your area that advertise they are experts in your sort of case. This could make the entire process of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the tips below it will be possible to narrow down your search off to the right one in almost no time. The initial step is to create a listing of the lawyers which can be listed in your town specializing in your situation. While you are making this list you ought to only include those you have a good vibe about depending on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down by using a little while evaluating their website. There you must be able to find how many years they have been practicing plus some general information about their success rates. At this stage your list ought to have shrunken further to the people that you just felt had professional websites plus an appropriate volume of experience. You need to then spend some time to look up independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure you browse the reviews rather than just depending on their overall rating. The data inside the reviews will give you a concept of the direction they connect with the clientele and how much time they invest into each case that they are concentrating on. Finally, you should talk to no less than the last three lawyers which have the credentials you are searching for. This provides you with time to truly evaluate how interested they can be in representing you and the case. It is vital that you follow all of these steps to actually find a person that has the best level of experience to help you the best possible outcome.

Is There A Lawyer That Will Take On A Medical Malpractice Case In Austin Texas?
I Need A Lawyer That Will Take On A Medical Malpractice Case In Austin Texas. I Don'T Want To Air The Details. I Just Need Someone Who Is Good/Great. My Life Has Been Ruined And I Deserve Retribution And A Way To Take Care Of Myself.
I am a medical malpractice lawyer in Austin. I am happy to speak with you (free consultation) and evaluate the case further. Please call me, 512-827-7548 (this rings to my office and my cell phone). I am passionate about medical malpractice cases. Several years ago my fiance died because of medical malpractice. I will tell you that because of tort reform that it is very hard to make a medical malpractice case and it is very expensive to litigate a medical malpractice case. My firm pays all of those expenses up front and runs the risk of the lose. That is why we have to be so careful with which cases we take. I am happy to talk to you, and even if I can't take the case, I hope it will give you another step toward emotional recovery and understanding what is going on.
Information On A Navy Jag Officer/Lawyer?
My Boyfriend Wants To Go Into The Navy To Become A Lawyer, I Can'T Find Any Information On It...
What Would The Daily Schedule Be Like? When We'Re Married, Will I See Him Every Day? Will I Sleep Next To Him Every Night? What Is The Traveling Like? Please Help.
If he's already a lawyer, see the first link below. If he is not a lawyer now, he will have to enter the Navy as an officer (which requires a Bachelor's degree) and then serve a minimum of two years and apply and qualify before the Navy will send him to law school (Legal Education Program - second link below). During that time the Navy WILL send him to sea and he will be gone about 50% of nights during his first two or three years; normally that will be one in four nights when his ship is in homeport and six months at at a time when he is deployed. Then while he's in law school you'll see him every day and night, but once he's done, as a JAG Officer he will deploy again, normally two six month deployments in a two to three year sea tour, followed by a three year shore tour. Shore tours could be in the U.S. but could also be overseas--but as long as you're married, odds are you'll go with him. Day to day routine on shore duty is much like any other lawyer, with a higher likelihood of occasional travel. BTW, don't draw ANY conclusions from the TV series JAG because it has no relationship to real-life JAG officers. He will make less money and work harder than 90% of his law school classmates, but you may find that he loves the job and he may even stick around for a career. A Navy career is neither good nor bad, it's just different; like anything there are both good and bad aspects to it. I believe--as my career JAG friends do--that the good far outweighs the bad.
Need Help With Child Custody Case.?
My Husbands Ex Recently Filed For Primary Custody In March. She Waited A Year After They Broke It Off And He Moved Out. She Stated She Wanted Something In Writing About Visitation And Said She Didn'T Want Money. We Went To Mediation, She Refused To Work With Anything, Then Dismissed The Case. Our Attorney Advised Us He'D Never Seen This Tactic But We Refiled Anyway. Then She Filed A Sexual Abuse Charge Against Him A Month And A Half Ago. It Was Unfounded 3 Weeks Ago But She Still Refuses To Let Him See His Daughters. There Was An Abuse Case Filed Against Her Boyfriend In Which Was Also Unfounded. The Problem With That Is, We Have Proof That He Abuses Her. We Have Pictures, The 4 Yr Old Being Recorded Advising Of The Abuse, And We Have Affidavits From Witnesses Who Have Been In The House And Seen What Goes On. Dhs Refused To See That Proof And Dismissed It Just Because The 4 Yr Old Told Them, While Being Coached, That She Was Happy And Not Getting Hit. It Has Been 5 Weeks Since He Has Seen His Daughters And This Weekend Will Make 6. She Claims She Is Waiting On A Phone Call But Refuses To Tell Us What About Or Why. I Have Assumed It Was A Call From The Dhs Worker So I Called Her And Left Her Messages To Please Call My Husband'S Ex So That He Can See His Girls. Our Attorney Sent Her Attorney A Letter Today Advising Her Of The Issue. What Can He Do? There'S Is Nothing In Writing Yet. She Hates My Guts Only Because I Am With Him. I Treat My Step Daughters Better Then Their Mother Does. My Husband Is A Stay At Home Dad But She Would Never Take Advantage Of That. She Would Rather Have Them Stay With A Sitter While She Goes Out To Party Then Let Their Father Spend Anymore Time With Them Then She Feels He Should Be Allowed. She Even Stated To Him That She Thinks 4 Days A Month Is Fair. I Am So Frustrated With Her.
You don't need help with a custody case, you need a divorce.
This is not your custody case, these are not your children and never will be but you'll pay for it in more ways than one.
You're willfully holding a poisonous snake and you're mad at the snake.
Drop it and run for your life.
Any Us Labor Lawyers Out There?
I Have An Interesting Question Concerning Overtime Pay In The State Of Virginia. My Wife Is A Nurse (Hourly Pay) Who Is Given An &Quot;On-Call&Quot; Cell Phone For 1-2 Weeks At A Time. She Is Constantly On The Thing When She Has It Dealing With Issues At Work And Talking To Doctors. She Is Also Required To Stay In Town On These Days In Case She Has To Go In For Some Reason.
I Am A Manager Myself And I Believe That She Is Due Compensation For The Time She Spends On The Phone With Work. I Cannot Find Supporting Regulations For This Though (Probably Do Not Know Where To Look) And Wonder If Any Of You Know Where To Find The Info.
Labor laws can be quite complex, however most of your questions can be answered here:

Should I Contact A Lawyer Or The Hospital First If I Suspect A Family Member Experienced Medical Malpractice?
My Mother Was Seen In The Er After Slicing Off The Tip Of Her Index Finger. The Physician Was Very Rude And Short With Her When The Lidocaine Block That He Administered Didn'T Completely Work And She Still Complained Of Pain While He Was Working With Her Finger. He Called A Hand Surgeon For A Consult And After The Consult Decided To Try To Stitch Across It To Stop The Bleeding. It Was Very Painful For My Mother And Needless To Say It Did Not Work, Also During The Procedure He Was Mumbling Commands To Her And Then Getting Frustrated As If She Wasn'T Cooperating. Then He Decides To Try To Cauterize The Bleeds And While Doing So Makes It A Point To Show The Nurses That She Is Not Always Responding To The Cautery Tool And States That She Isn'T In Pain, It Is Anxiety But Never Gives Her Anything For Anxiety Either, Also While I Am Watching This All Take Place And Whispering As If I Was Not Standing There. Ends Up Putting A Tourniquet On Her Finger After Cauterizing It And Leaves It There For 45 Minutes. Comes Back And States That The Wound Is Superficial In Areas And That He Does Not Think It Requires Any Skin Graft But We Can Follow Up With The Hand Surgeon If We Want Then Dresses It With A Gel Bandaid And Gauze. The Nursing Staff Was Horrified, You Could See It On Their Face And One Nurse Even Apologized. Needless To Say We Went To The Hand Surgeon For A Second Opinion. When He Looked At The Wound He Was Shocked Because It Was Much Worse Than The Er Physician Described The Night Before. He Said He Told The Er Physician That If The Wound Bed Was Less Than One Centimeter It Would Not Required A Graft And He Could Try Stitching To Stop The Bleeding. The Er Physician Had Told Him It Was Less Than A Centimeter. When He Measured It Was 1.6 By 1.3. And Decided On A Skin Graft Scheduled That Same Day. I'M Not Sure Where To Go With This. I Am Disgusted. I Am An Rn And Am So Angry That I Let My Mom Suffer Through Something That I Thought Was Necessary But Really Wasn'T.
I am not a lawyer, but this is something I know an awful lot about.
You don't ever contact the hospital first, you always contact a lawyer first. Don't call a lawyer off the TV. Don't call a lawyer in a small town. Only talk to someone who is a bona fide med/mal atty, not someone who *also* does med mal. It matters to whom you speak.
I tell you to call a lawyer because you have a Constitutional right to seek redress under the law. However, there are some things you should know before you do because it may well change your mind. You will not feel better, and you will certainly become more angry. This is the nature of medical malpractie and tort reform.
In order to sue a doc for malpractice, you must first prove that the doc's care fell below the standard of care, and that that falling below the standard of care caused a permanent injury. Now you've got number one handled, but do you have number two? Permanent doesn't mean missing your fingertip. Permanent means unable to walk, talk, work, drive, live life as you always have before. Permanent means injured so completely as to affect other people's lives because you need help just to live every day. The average person on the street doesn't know this. They just call you greedy for suing those poor docs. They don't know that there's no such thing as an "I'm p*ssed" lawsuit; that judges can't award principle of the thing, they can only award what you have actually financially lost. As an example, when someone dies due to a medical mistake, most of those folks are classified as "non-economic damages." Because they don't need a lifetime care -- cuz they're dead -- their families don't get to sue.
I'm not being snarky. I know what it is to know the doctor failed, other doctor failed, nurses failed, the lot of them together blame you, they also call you greedy, and there's nothing you can do.
If your mom does not have *that* kind of an injury, you may well be entitled to the cap for non-economic damages, typically capped at $250k to $300k. The problem is it costs that much just to get to court in the first place, and you best believe the doc's insurance company will make your lawyer spend every bit of $250k to keep from having to pay you $250k. And it's the lawyer's $250k you're spending to get to court, not your own.
When a lawyer takes your case, you are essentially taking out an interest free loan. And the risk is all his because if you don't win, he doesn't recoup that money that he paid out. And that $250k does not include his fees. He doesn't get paid his fees, his hours worked, unless he wins. That $250k is just the court costs. That is medical experts, because you know as well as I do, docs will not speak against another doc. That is also economists who must be hired to count the cost of your injury. They will literally count how many pairs of ortho socks you will need over your lifetime, and you will not receive a penny more. That is court reporters, depositions, production, arbitrators, the whole nine yards.
I'm sorry your mom was hurt, and I'm sorry the doctor was such a pinhead. Why these guys don't get someone who knows what they're doing is beyond me. Are they that arrogant? Or do they really not know that they just don't know what they're doing? I find that to be a very valid question
Do contact a lawyer. It has happened before that a skilled lawyer rights a very artful letter and causes said doc to just pay the cost to fix the problem. No lawsuit, no millions of dollars, no years of drama and court costs, just, here's what it will cost to fix it, and I'll pay for that. It's worth a shot. Don't think evil of an attorney who wants to get paid for his work. We all want to get paid, and it's only lawyers who get demonzied for getting paid. Go figure.
