3 Approaches To Know You've Picked The Best Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to go through the court system, specifically if you lack confidence within your legal team. Allow me to share three important strategies to understand that you've hired the best lawyer: 1. They Focus On Your Type Of Case What the law states is often tricky and that requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you really need a legal professional, try to find individual who works with the matter you're facing. Even when a member of family or friend recommends you employ a good they know, should they don't have got a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. When your attorney is an expert, specifically in the trouble you're facing, you already know you've hired the right choice. 2. The Lawyer Includes A Winning Record Based on the circumstances, it might be hard to win an instance, particularly if the team helping you has little to no experience. Search for practices who have won numerous cases that affect yours. Although this is no guarantee that you case will likely be won, it offers you a far greater shot. 3. They Listen And Respond When the attorney you've chosen takes the time to listen for your concerns and react to your inquiries, you've probably hired the correct one. Regardless how busy they are or how small your concerns seem from the perspective, it's important that they answer you inside a caring and timely manner. From the aim of take a look at an ordinary citizen who isn't familiar with the judicial system, court cases can be pretty scary you require updates as well as to think that you're section of the solution. Some attorneys are simply just more suitable to you and your case as opposed to others. Make sure you've hired the best team to your circumstances, to actually can put the matter behind you immediately. Faith with your legal representative is the first task to winning any case.

Real Estate Legal Question?
I Have A Brief Question For You
We Had A Lien Placed Against A Home For Non Payment Of Hoa Dues And It Went To Auction In August. They Owed About 2K. The 6 Months Of Redemption Expired In February. We Received An Assessment Lien Deed. The County Appraisal Site Stills List The Former Owner As The Current Owner.
If We Owned The Home Wouldn'T We Be Listed As The Owners And Would N'T We Have Been Billed For The Taxes Due At The End Of The Year? We Emailed The Hoa Rep And She Says We Own It. I Am Not Convinced That We Own A Home Just Because We Have A Lien. It Seems The Bank Still Owns It Because They Own The Mortgage.
It Seems To Me That If We Owned The Home, Then We Would Have Been Awarded A Deed Of Ownership Not An Assessment Lien Deed.
We Need To Make Arrangements To Get The Grass Cut On A Regular Schedule And Secure The Home.Yes, The Home Is Unlocked. I Do Not Want To Do Anything (Like Entering The Home Or Locking It ) If We Do Not Have The Legal Right To Be There. Can You Tell Me If This Lien Awards Us Ownership? If It Does, Then We Will Have A Saturday Morning Project Securing The Property And Prepping It For Sale.
Btw, I Am In Texas.
Could you re-post your question and clarify the following:
Who are you in relation to this home, and why do you think you might own it?
Were you (or your company) granted a lien on the property or was there a lien placed on the property by an HOA... or are you asking on behalf of the HOA?
Unless you clarify so someone really on top of this sort of thing can answer, I think the answer to your question is, No, you do not own the property. Sounds like you are one (of probably many) lien holders, with at least one mortgage holder ahead of you in the que to get paid.
I Am Being Taken To Small Claims Court, Where Can I Do Legal Research Online?
I Own A Mail Store And Am Being Taken To Small Claims Court For $300. The Claim Is So Small I Am Not Looking To Hire A Lawyer But In The Justice And Grand Scheme Of Things I Wish To Prove Myself. The Claim Is Over A Damaged Shipment Insured By Fed Ex. Fed Ex Will Not Honor The Insurance Claim So The Customer Has Now Taken My Business To Court. I Don'T Wish To Give To Many Details On The Situation But Am Hoping To Find Some Way To Track Down Similar Cases Such As Mine In Order To Show A Precedent. I Am Also Having A Hard Time Finding Laws That Protect Me As Shipper. If Anyone Can Point Me In The Right Direction It Would Be Well Appreciated.
to protect yourself in the future tell them that they must buy insurance on the item when shipped or you are not responsible for damage in the mails. Doesn't Fed Ex have insurance connected with it? UPS covers $100 per package I believe so you can ship UPS. If she was offered insurance on the package and didn't select it, then you may hve that argument in court.
If you stated taht you are not responsible for damages in the mail, then you have that arguemnt.
Is taking back the damaged item and replacing with a new item an option for you? The person should be required to bring the item to court with her/him.
As to reaearch you might go to consumer rights on the internet. I assume she paid $300 for the item and that is not some kind of penalty because she lost something else because she didn't get that in a timely fashion. I think you can beat that if it is the case as you sent the package in a timely way and it was the Fed Ex who messed up. You could possible bring in the Fed Ex as your own counter suit as part of the small claims claiming that if there is anything you owe, it is owed by Fed Ex and not you (if there was insurance on it).
With the US mail I odn't think they cover any isnurance unless it is purchased. You could use that as your own argument that it was the mails that messed up not you and she could have purchased insurance. But ff you didn't offer that option or you have a refund policy, you may be stuck to replacing it.
You could go to a court law library and see about researching a case there There are books that have cases in them but they arne't always easy to research. You an try your state and the law -- like Michigan consumer law or Michigan postal liability or whatever you can think of to try. You might be able to go to a law school and see about whether you can research fromt heir law library. I can't think of the name of the books but you lok up an index with whatever words you can thnk of to search and then you go to the cases to read the decisons and why and then you can look up to see if there were any that were overturned, etc.
There are on line places to do that Lexus.com and another one but I can't remember what they are now. It has been a long time and I didn't practice law so much as quasi law with a union. I hated the research part when it came to the fine tuning up as to overturned cases, etc.
It could be consumer law in your state. Postal damage might be a place to try. Good luck to you.

Legal Advice For A Bench Trial?
So, I Have A Debt Collection Company That Has Taken Me To Court For Outstanfing Credit Card Debt. At The Initial Hearing, I Disputed The Amount Owed As It Was Significantly Higher Than Even The Limit Of The Credit Card. I Now Have A Bench Trial Scheduled. Do I Have A Legitimate Claim To Defend Or Should I Not Have Opted For A Trial? And Is There Any Advice I Should Follow In Seeking Leniency?
If you have not consulted an attorney, nothing else matters much.
I work in courts which hear cases on credit card debt. Frequently, the amount owed is significantly higher than the limit on the card. And the judgment will include attorney's fees and court costs and post-judgment interest. So you could have had a card with a $5,000 limit. Adding late fees and penalties, the debt at time of trial may be $7,500 or more. Add another $250 or so for court costs and another $2,500 or more for attorney's fees. You are now looking at over $10,000 plus post-judgment interest, plus added attorney's fees and court costs for post-judgment collection efforts.
Consult your attorney.
Leniency may be related to punishment in criminal cases. The court may have no option when the plaintiff proves what you owe.
If you have a substantial amount to offer the plaintiff, you could negotiate a settlement. For instance, if you owe $7,500, you could, perhaps, negotiate a dismissal of the case based on immediate cash payment of only $3,000 or so.
Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer For Immigrant Purposes(Canada)?
I Want To Immigrate To Canada, I Completely Know The Rules But Decided To Hire A Lawyer Because My First Language Is Not English Or French And I Don'T Want To Have Grammer Errors In My Application!!! Do U Recommend Hiring An Attorney? Do U Know A Good Attorney?
Any Comments Is Appreciated.
This is a link for some immigration lawyers in the Vancouver, BC, area. I couldn't tell you a good one from a bad one but the link gives some guidelines on how to pick a lawyer and also gives the names of some.
That said, I don't know if you would be wiser to pick a lawyer located in Canada or one who specializes in immigration to Canada but is situated in the country you are coming from.
First Time Offender Of Dui In Pa...Help!?
So This Past Weekend I Was Visiting Some Friends Out Of Town. We All Are 21 And Were Doing Some Drinking Throughout The Weekend. On Saturday I Stopped Drinking At 10Pm. Around 2 O'Clock My Ex Calls Me Saying She Was In Trouble And She Needed My Help. I Thought 4 Hrs Since My Last Beer I'M Fine.
So On The Way To Pick Her Up I Missed A Turn And Turned Into A Parking Lot There Were 4 Cops Standing There Nd Jumped In Front Of My Car And Told Me To Stop. Me And My Buddy Were In The Car. I Cooperated To The Fullest, While Being Tested For Dui, Breathalyzer (Which The Officer Didn'T Tell Me What I Blew) Follow Test, Line Test, And Stand On One Foot Test. Apparently I Failed When I Know I Did Everything Correctly. I Was Taken To Station And Got A Blood Test. I Got No Paperwork No Business Card, Nothing. All They Said Was They Would Call Me In 4 Weeks When Results Were In...What Should I Do? I Haven'T Had Anything Serious On My Record Besides A Speeding Ticket In 2 Years (Underage 4 Years Ago, And Disorderly Conduct 2 Years Ago) Freaking Out Please Someone Give Me Advise And Info On How To Go About This!!!
First time DUI is serious,.. but going to jail/being incarcerated is a VERY unlikely outcome. Typically the worst case scenario involves losing your license for a period of time - fines, sometimes mandatory alcohol education courses and this being on your record. (As DUI's are cumulative and each subsequent one results in stiffer punitive and monetary penalties) -- This is important as in many states the 3rd (and sometimes extended to 4th) DUI results in a Felony -- which is quite serious.
Though this is your FIRST, so try not to worry too much. The best thing you can do here is learn never to drive after drinking unless you are ABSOLUTELY positive enough time has passed to be under the legal limit. (Which is impossible to know unless you let 10-12 hours pass in most cases -- or you have a very accurate personal BAC monitor ).
Other than this -- start researching attorney's (lawyers) that handle DUI cases in your area. While you won't need one to stay out of jail on your first offense.. if you/ or your family can afford one it will give you your best chances at mitigating the charge against you. Sometimes you can get it plead down, or dismissed (best case). In other examples there are deferred entry of judgement (pre-trial diversionary programs) for cases like yours where you go through court ordered measures (classes, drug testing, and such) for a period of 6months or so (they all vary) and if you successfully complete the program you DUI charge is dismissed (despite otherwise having been guilty of the charge if you went before the judge/jury).
So try not to worry -- learn a lesson about driving,.. and start looking into attorney's (if you can afford it). Most will offer free consultation based on your case -- the first attorney you contact isn't always the one you should go with, plus the fee's they charge will vary as well. If you do end up going with an attorney don't just pick them based on the 'cheapest' --
You'll be fine,..
