Finding A Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will see that there are numerous lawyers in your town that advertise they are experts in your form of case. This can make the whole process of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below it will be easy to limit your quest on the right one in very little time. Step one is to create a list of the lawyers that are listed in your town specializing in your situation. While you are making this list you must only include those that you have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down through taking a little while evaluating their site. There you should be able to find how many years they have been practicing and several general specifics of their success rates. At this stage your list needs to have shrunken further to those that you simply felt had professional websites and an appropriate quantity of experience. You need to then take time to search for independent reviews of every attorney. Be sure you read the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The info from the reviews will provide you with a concept of how they connect with their clients and the length of time they invest into each case that they are focusing on. Finally, you will want to talk with at the very least the final three lawyers who have the credentials you are looking for. This will give you time to actually evaluate how interested they may be in representing both you and your case. It is crucial for you to follow most of these steps to ensure that you hire a company which includes the right level of experience to help you get the very best outcome.

Slip And Fall?
I Was Walking To My Car In A Apartment Complex Parking Lot And Slipped And Fell On Black Ice Onto My Side And Badly Hurt My Elbow/Lower Back Area. I Had On Tennis Shoes (Shouldnt Matter) Jeans-Tee Shirt- Cant Blame On Dress...The Ice Was Inbetween My Car And The Car Next To Mine. Should I Bring It To The Attention Of The Manager? (Not Like They Do S*** Anyways). 2 Days Later Were I Landed Still Is In Pain.
You can bring it to their attention, but if you're looking for a law suit, it's not going to happen. If they are deliberately ignoring a problem brought on by Mother Nature, they may possibly be liable; but black ice in a winter location is normal and expected.
You should never, ever go out in wintery conditions dressed innappropriately. There have been cases of people falling and being unable to get up or get help; they froze to death because no one found them until it was too late. At least put your winter coat on next time you go outside in freezing weather, and take your cell phone.
Lawyers Win Or Lose—Behind Closed Doors?
How Exactly Do Lawyers Talk To Each Other… How Does One Side Decide There Are Going To Win And Other Side Lose? For Example: Do They Talk To Each Other Saying… One Client Has More Money So They Split It Between Them To Win, Do They Know Each Other Well Enough Or Trade Cases To Win/Lose?
I only practice business/commercial litigation and I can tell you behind closed doors, most lawyers are very polite and also very ethical. Most of the time when we decide to settle a case, we do it on the basis of who has the stronger case, what the client is willing to pay to settle (and if the client is willing to settle at all - some have an axe to grind), and how much it will cost to try the case and the risks in that. It is a complicated dance at times and there is a fair amount of negotiating, but most of it is above board and ethical rules mandate that all offers of settlement must be taken to the client.
Are Suicidal Cases Dealt By Criminal Or Family Lawyers?
And Do You Think A Mother Who Survives An Attempted Suicide Deserves To Be With Her Kids Again? What Should Be Her Punishment?
Whether criminal or family lawyers deal with suicidal cases depends on the particular situation. The law would ensure that the person seeks treatment to prevent another attempt, and issue orders to minimize impact on the people around the suicidal person, such as children.
Attempted suicide is not a criminal offence in the sense of deserving jail time as punishment. Normally, the law grants ordinary citizens certain liberty to act and make decisions, but such freedom assumes rationality. By the suicide attempt, the person demonstrated to the court that he is not rational as expected. The court would then look to determine action. If the court understands that the person was merely overwhelmed by circumstances, they may order treatment. If the incapacity is deemed more permanent, other measures may be taken. These measures would be in the protection of the person, protection of people around the suicidal person, and finally in the protection of the state. The first two protections are obvious, but the state needs to be protected in the sense that suicidal people may spend resources (police attention, medical services, others) which are spent rarely by ordinary people but suicidal people may spend repetitively, even abusively.
You ask if a mother who survives an attempted suicide deserves to be with her kids again. Such words would be used by a lawyer trying to induce guilt on the unsuspecting. A mother's right to see her children is not eliminated by a suicide attempt as such. What the court would look for is whether the underlying mental condition that produced the suicide attempt may have an impact on the children development. On such basis, contact may be denied, never on the suicide attempt as such.
You ask if suicide attempt is a punishable by law. The real answer is mostly not. The court would ensure the suicidal person gets treatment. That said, there maybe circumstances where the court may punish a suicide attempt. I should point out that most suicidal people seek treatment on their own. Most people under those circumstances would handle the issue discreetly, and the courts may never hear about it. A minority of real suicide people would be seen by the courts. Then, there is another set of people, who are not really suicidal. They pretend to be suicidal as a way to manipulate the people around them. A person may be what I call not a real mental adult, and cannot deal diplomatically with others. These people may try to play the pity card, pity that is deserved by real suicides, but not by them. This is more common than expected. If the courts decides such is the situation, there may be punishment.
Legal Aid For Child Custody?
I Am Trying To Pursue Full Child Custody Of My Daughter. She Was Conceived And Born In A Different State Than I Live, As Well As Where The Father Now Resides. So This Creates A Problem. I Live With My Current Bf (Not The Biological Father) And Was Told By A Legal Aid Service That I Won'T Qualify For He Makes Too Much Money, Even Though He Isn'T The Father, Nor My Husband. I'M Scared To Represent Myself For I Wouldn'T Know Where To Start. Can Someone Please Tell Me Who I Can Turn To For Legal Representation For A Free Or Atleast Low-Cost Service??? I Live In The Bay Area In Ca.
Eleven years ago I could have put your question on here almost verbatim. I know your heart is hurt, broken, angry, confused and you probably feel like you want to die inside. But if you find anyone to help you during your search, I and many many other childless mothers, would love your input. I'm guessing that you've already searched mothers for justice, the NOW organization for womens rights or at least googled "mothers without children" there's also care2.com. Unless you have money to pay an attorney in family court or unless your circumstances are "monstrous" you may want to focus on your self. Custody battles and family court can take your soul and by the time you get it back your child or children will be grown. I went to extremes to get help with my battle and in the end I found an attorney who out of the goodness of his heart only charged me 2000.00 and I lost complete custody of my son. It was a trade off between my son and my daughter seven years after they were taken from me through deception by my abusive alcoholic ex-husband. I had to wait until the oldest of the two was 14 before she could choose on her own to live with me. But by this time the only life she knew was the life her dad had created. Life doesn't make sense and to me it never will. I've been an activist for mothers who get their children taken away through deceptive means or misunderstandings. What do I do exactly? Wipe a lot of tears and pray a lot of prayers. Occassionally I run into a mother who has yet to make her first court appearance in a child custody battle. This seems to be the only way to prevent disaster from happening. It's difficult and I don't want to shoot all of your hopes down because there is always hope. Peace
Dui Laws: How Are The States Ranked?
I'M Looking For A List Of U.S. States Listed In Order Of Toughest Dui Laws, From Toughest State Down To Most Lenient State.
Thanks In Advance.
Arizona. DUI is considered any amount of alcohol in your system over .00. First time offense is mandatory week in jail (tent city) license suspended, and ignition interlock (breathalyzer) installed in your car for one year. In Arizona, you do not even have to be driving your vehicle to receive a DUI. If you are washing your car in your driveway and have your keys in your pocket and beer in your hand, you can be arrested for DUI. I knew someone who got a DUI for grabbing a sweatshirt out of the back seat of his car when he was drunk. This is all for a first offense. People can spend over a year in jail for repeat offenses.
My Little Sister Is Going Through A Divorce (Still Married At The Moment) She Lives In Tx And He Lives In Ms, Currently Her Son Is Visiting Him And He Is Refusing To Allow Him To Return Home. Is This Considered Kidnapping? What Avenues Can She Take To Get Her Son Back.
Btw He Is Not The Custodial Parent And Has Not Been Paying Any Support Of Any Kind.
It all depends on what the temporary custody/visitation agreement says. If there isn't one, it was dumb on her part to send him to his dad's.
If he was already in MS at the time the divorce proceeding started, it isn't kidnapping. If he took the child across state lines before it - then it is parental kidnapping. (provided the child normally resides in TX)
If there is a temporary custody order in place, that says specifically when the child should be returned, that he violates, she needs to file an emergency order with the court for contempt and immediate return of the child.
If there is no temporary order, then that means custody has not been established yet - and he has the right to keep the child if he wants, and she will have to file in court for temporary custody until the divorce is final, although he may beat her to that filing if she doesn't act fast.
Most of the time, child support is not required until the divorce is final.
