Is A 50% Contingency Fee For An Attorney Against Professional Standards?
For A Wrongful Death Case? I Thought 33% Was Normal, Or Even 25%, How Many Attorneys Charge 50% + Expenses? In Sounds Like A Rip. Opinions?
Some states have certain statutory amounts for contingencies on particular matters. For example, many states have a statutory amount that an attorney can charge for a probate case, and can only charge a certain percentage of the estate amount.
But for civil causes of action like wrongful death cases, then it's usually just defined by agreement, as long as the fees are reasonable, and in states like California, as long as the fees aren't "unconscionable." However, both reasonableness and unconscionable-ness are subjective and depends on the locale, the attorney's expertise, etc., etc., and whether you agreed to it beforehand or if it was billed to you later. Since this is what the lawyer is throwing on the table beforehand and you agree, then since you agreed, you would basically be saying you thought it was reasonable and not excessive. But if you don't agree, then you can't even have him be your lawyer because contingency agreements usually must be in writing.
The fact remains, that you simply don't have to use that lawyer if you don't want to. It's up to you. If you agree to it, then you agree. But if you don't like the bargain they are offering, you have every right to say no deal. But you can't sign a contingency agreement, and then if the lawyer relies on your agreement, and takes on a huge complicated case for you and wins, you can't then turn around and say, no, this is unreasonable. That's just wanting your cake and eating it too.
So it may not be normal, but how good is this attorney? Because there are some attorneys that are able to reasonably charge $1,000.00/hr and that's fine (as case law has shown) IF the lawyer is considered so good and in such high demand, that it wouldn't be unreasonable under the circumstances to charge those prices. Otherwise they would have spent their time representing a different client willing to pay their going rate.
Basically, "professional standards" are subjective and a case by case thing where factors considered are the particular jurisdiction and going rates of other attorneys, but also considered is the particular lawyer's experience, intelligence, and reputation. But unless it is a situation that has a statutory defined fee such as sometimes probate estate cases have, there isn't a particular percentage that is against "professional standards." Like if you hired Johnnie Cochran versus a lawyer right out of law school with no experience, you should expect that Johnnie is going to want a lot more money for his time, than the newbie. Maybe newbie will offer you a deal where he will only ask for 10% but Johnnie will ask for 50%. So you can take the risk of losing with the newbie and getting nothing, or you can take a lesser payout and go with Johnnie who probably has a lot more tools at his disposal, not to mention has a good reputation winning his cases. Just call around and see what other lawyers are charging and try to figure out why this particular lawyer thinks he can get such a high percentage payout? Can he tell you how many cases like yours he won? You have to be diligent about finding the right lawyer.

What'S The Best Way To Find A Good Divorce Lawyer?
A Friend Of Mine Contacted Me And Asked If I Knew A Good Divorce Lawyer Because She Discovered That Her Husband Had Been Cheating On Her. She Doesn'T Have A Lot Of Family Here In Atlanta, And Frankly Being That I'M Young And Poor, I Don'T Have A Lot Of Numbers For Good Divorce Attorneys Lying Around.
I Would Just Look Online Or Through The Phonebook, But I Don'T Want To End Up With Some Loser Ambulance Chaser That Doesn'T Know What He'S Doing. Are There Any Good Ways To Assure That I Help My Friend Find The Right Attorney?
Do a little bit of research online. Sometimes you will find sites that list lawyers and some of their clients will have come back and made comments about the type of service they provided and if they would reccommend them. Also, you could ask any of your divorced friends, family, or co-workers if they know of any good lawyers in your area.

That is the child's attorney, appointed by the court to look out for the child's best interests.
In nasty custody cases the court will often appoint one and that person then meets with everyone involved, and makes his or her recommendation to the court as to who should be awarded custody.
What A Levals Do I Need To Become A Lawyer ?
What A Levals Do I Need To Become A Lawyer ?
To enter into the legal profession (i.e. become a lawyer - solicitor or barrister), you will more often than not need to take a Law degree at university (degree) level. The most common degree is the Law LLB 3-year course, which requires no certain A-levels. Helpful A-levels to do would include Law (of course), Sociology, Politics and English, among others. Top law firms will look back at your A-levels to help them decide whether or not to employ you, so they do matter to a certain extent.
The long and short of it is that you can do any A-levels to get onto most university courses, but obviously if you've done, for instance, Photography, Media and Music, you are less likely to. Law gives you some excellent background knowledge and a great taste of what's coming, but everything you learn is re-covered in university.
Personally, I studied Law, Psychology, Sociology and English Language/Literature at A-level, and I felt that Sociology in particular was very helpful; English also greatly helps with your writing ability, crucial for completion of a Law degree.
Conclusion - you can study any A-levels, as it's the degree that counts! You can even do a non-Law degree, but it means you'll have to study further courses... feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
In Need Of Advice .Is This Even Legal?
In Any Way Shape Or Form..So My Little Brother In Law Receives Checks From His Fathers Death .But His Mom Keeps Them He Is 17 And He Needs Things Like Clothes Shoes , Money For Food And Things.He Asks His Mom But She Says Shes Broke,..But She Buys Her New Boyfriend Things There Constantly Buying Liquor And Partying Is There Any Law Against This?
The money that his Mom is receiving is social security money that is supposed to be used to support her late husbands child until he turns 18 or 21 depending on if he goes to college or not. It is not issued to spend on drugs or alcohol or to buy gifts for her boyfriend. If you feel she is abusing it you should call the social security administration or contact them online and file a complaint. The more information you have the more likely it will be for them to investigate her. You'll need his fathers name because they issue it off his social in her name for the benefit of their child together. I know this cause my first husband passed and I receive benefits for my 7 year old. I use it to pay for his school costs, uniforms, school lunches, etc. Whatever I have left over goes into a savings accounnt for him.
