What Is A Litigation Lawyer?
Please Be Descriptive And Detailed To Be Chosen As Best Answer
The term used is usually "Plaintiff's lawyer." It is one who initiates a lawsuit, hoping to win money from a defendant for a variety of possible reasons. These defendants are often corporations or other big-money interests. If the case is won, or settled, the attorney gets a sizable percentage of the award. The percentage tends to increase the closer the case gets to trial. If it settles out of court, usually around 33%, plus costs and expenses. If it settles just prior to trial, or after trial starts but before it goes to the jury, then maybe 40%, if they win at trial, maybe even more. This is to compensate the lawyer for all the work that goes into trial preparation.
Some things people initiate litigation over: injuries caused by products, be it faulty can openers or cars, injuries caused by negligence, such as an employee spilling a pot of coffee on your lap, employment cases, discrimination cases, professional malpractice --medical, legal, cpa, etc. breach of contract, traffic accidents.
some litigation is filed in an attempt to change laws: such as affirmative action, voting rights act, school integration, etc.
Litigation lawyers are good at discovery: digging up the details to prove their case, and disprove the defendant's defenses, and they work very hard the entire time, preparing for trial, even though many cases settle before trial. They are knowledgeable at evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the case, and what it is worth. They must be able to be both assertive and likable, so as to not prejudice the jury against their client.
Criminal Defense Lawyers?
Top Firms Pay Lawyers $160,000 A Year. Okay. Lawyers Represent Clients, And These Clients Have To Pay Their Lawyer. If I Am A Lawyer For Firm X, And I Win A $75-Million-Dollar Lawsuit, Don'T I Get A Piece Of That? But What If I Dont Get Called For Any Cases? Do I Still Make My $160,000 Salary?
Top law firms do not hire criminal defense attorneys - that is just not their practice area. Most large law firms will practice in corporate, financial services, white collar and intellectual property. Additionally, only the top 5 or so paying law firms are paying $160k and they only hire about 20 graduates per year firm wide from the top 1-2% of the top 15-20 law schools.
A criminal defense attorney would not try a $75M lawsuit. That is the job of a civil trial attorney, Even then, the attorney that tries the case will not get a cut of the proceeds - the firm would be paid the contingency fee. That fee will have to cover all of the attorneys, support staff and miscellaneous expenses (such as copying, long distance, travel, witness fees, etc.). The trial attorney may receive a bonus (depending upon his employment arrangement), but it would be a very, very small portion of the contingency fee.
Most criminal defense attorneys are either sole practitioners or work for very small firms. In these instances, you do not get a salary, but instead you get a cut of the firm's profits. If you do not get cases, then there won't be any profits for you to get a cut. In the rare instance where you are hired on salary for the rare mid-sized criminal defense firm or the public defender's office, you will receive your salary for showing up for work, though in your first couple of years, you will most likely be the junior attorney and performing support work, not actually leading a person's defense. These types of jobs are VERY low paying - think around $40k-$50k (this is actually less than the typical salary of paralegals at a large law firm). If the firm's client base does not provide enough hours for you to work, then they will lay people off - starting with the attorneys that do not make their billable hour requirements.
Need A Lawyer?
What Is The Best Lawyer That Does Investigation Work. Need To Locate Owners Of Two Horses. I Hit At Night Which Totaled Out My Car. Since I Only Had Laiblityand The Crash Report Does Not Name The Owners What Would Be My Best Choice For A Lawyer. I Am Not Rich Nor Have Money To Spare.
Did you call the police to come out to see your car or the maimed horse and make a police report? You will need a police report to successfully sue the owner of the horse that probably broke down an old poorly maintained fence to escape.
To find a good lawyer: Usually when I have legal troubles I hire a lawyer that a respected friend of mine recommends. One time a guy was threatening to sue me over some stock that I verbally agreed to sell him but I changed my mind. This was in 1997 and before I even knew about the internet. I found free lawyer services in the phone book and went to see one of the lawyers it recommended after I phoned them. The guy did not charge me anything and told me that it is against the law for what I initially wanted to do which I told the guy who was threatening me and he gave up suing me. Since you obviously have internet access try a free lawyer search in your immediate area.
New Dwi Law In Mo??
Hello All. Mo Just Recently Passed A Bill Below Yesterday And It It Set To Go Into Effect August 28Th. The Reason For It Is That Some Courts Were Not Enforcing Interlocks (She Was Not Ordered To) Enough So This Way They Figure Everyone Will Have To Get One. I Have Pasted The Link To The The Bill Below. ( Please Click On Bill Summaries For 1423 On The Link Below) My Question Is, My Gf Was Charged With A Chemical Refusal On May 29Th, 2007 And It Was Delayed In Court Until December 16Th, At Which Time She Officially Began To Serve Her 1 Year Loss Of License, After 90 Days She Can Get A Ldp (Limited Driving Privilidge) My Question Is, From The Wording Of This Bill, It Seems To Only Affect People Wanting A Restricted License (Different Than Ldp) And Doesn'T Go Into Effect Until August 28Th, So Do You This Will Affect Her When She Is Due For Reinstatement In Dec. 2008? This Would Seem To Only Effect People Who Are Charged After August 28? (See Link To Bill Below)
. I never heard of a law that was Retro-active. I wouldn't think this NEW law could effect her.
But these 'interlock' laws have been used in 40 states so I imagine the lawyers have covered their buttz. And you seem to be against drunk-driving laws. That's too bad.
Firefighting/Emt With Dui?
Ok So I Just Finnished My Fire Science Degree As I'M Striving To Be An Emt But I Have Two Dui'S, One Right Out Of Highschool Which Was Dropped To A Neg1 But Since I Was On Two Years Probations And Broke It By Getting Pulled Over While Drunk It Turns My Neg1 Into A Dui And Making It Two On Paper.. I Know I Have To Work Extremely Hard And Get Great Test Scores To Give Me The Best Possible Chance. I'Ve Also Done A Fire Academy When I Was 17 Giving Me College Credit So Its Been My Goal For A Long Time.
I'M 21 And I Do Not Drink At All Any More Since My Last Dui Was Definetly A Life Changing Experience, I Also Play A Huge Roll In My Community Coaching 7Th&8Th Basketball And 7&8Th Grade Lacrosse And Have Been For Years. I'M Not A Bad Person, Not Violent I'Ve Just Made Some Youthful Mistakes And I Regret Them Deeply.
I Would Like To Hear From Firefighters, Emts Or Paramedics. If Ur Just Some Random Person Not In The Line Of Work I'M Talking About Don'T Bother Answering, I Need Experinced Answers Please.
Getting a DUI at 17 could be overlooked with time (minimum 5 years) if you can show a clear change in behaviour and a solid employment record and community involvement.
2 DUIs starts to show a troubling pattern. In this neck of the woods, recruiting would not go anywhere near you until you were at least 7-8 years clear of any driving infraction (not so much as a parking ticket). Even then, these are highly competitive jobs. Out here, the smaller full-time departments will easily have over 100 qualified applicants for each position available. In the larger urban centres (bigger hiring numbers), that may drop to 25 qualified applicants for every position available. So even with significant time, good work record, etc, you'll be competing for a job against 24 others guys/gals for one position and most (if not all) of them won't have a DUI on heir record. Who would you pick?
This isn't to say you'll never become a firefighter, but it is going to be a harder road. Keep at it. Do everything you can to make yourself the best applicant possible but make sure you have a solid plan B.
