The Hospital Settled A Lawsuit With Me On Monday( Wrongful Death) They Said My Lawyer Should Get A Check In 7 ?
Days. How Long Will It Be Before I Got Paid? I Know The Lawyer Has To Pay Some Medical Bills And Take His Cut. But Does Anyone Know How Long That Will Take?
I worked for a personal injury lawyer once, and they had cases they settled months and even some up to a year prior, and I always felt bad because I had to field calls from clients asking when they could expect the check, and the lawyers wouldn't take their calls and would tell me to tell the clients that either the check hadn't come in yet or that one had been written and should be in the mail soon, when it was an outright lie. They had had the money in their account and the checks were never written to the clients.
My advice is keep after your lawyer on this. If he says they should have the check in 7 days, give his office an additional 7 days to process the check and your fees and then start calling them and asking where your money is. If they keep putting you off, go down to the offices and make them face you.
Is There A Lawyer In The Atlanta, Georgia Area That Would Like To Do Some Pro Bono Civil Litigation Work?
I am not an attorney in GA but you should be able to find an attorney for your case through contacting the County's bar association and maybe even just calling around...however, it would help first to know the type of case you have.
So, depending on the facts of your case, an attorney might take your case on a contingency basis taking a percentage of the recovery (there might be costs involved too but check with the attorney's policy on this as it can vary). If not, then contacting the County Bar as to someone who can help (they usually have a list of attorneys that have taken such pro bono cases based upon subject matter) is the route to take.
Legal Question For An Real Estate Lawyer In Oregon.?
Two People In A 4 Year Relationship Buy A House 2 Years Ago. Now The Relationship Is Ending And The Guy Won'T Leave The House Or Agree To Get Bought Out. Girl Is Out Of The House And He Rented Out Her Room Without Permission. Money Is Tight And Legal Aid Isn'T An Option. She Has A Full Time Job. He Doesn'T. He Has Free Legal Representation. She Is Devastated By This Event! She Is Afraid She Won'T Get Him Out Of The House And Then Lose Everything In Court Later. They Both Have Their Names On The Deed Etc. As A Parent, What Can We Do To Help Her Get This Mess Settled? I Appreciate Any Advise..Thanks
I can give you general advice. I would first like to know a couple questions. One, what financial contributions did each purchaser make towards the purchase of the house. Second, who is on the mortgage/loan and who actually makes mortgage payments, and are they current. How much is the house worth and how much is the current mortgage?
Ignoring that. I can make a few comments. Since she is on the deed she has the right to live in the house, she sounds like she does not want to. She has to determine what she wants. Does she want to keep the house? Does she want to try and get money for her value in the property? If she bought two years ago, that was near the top of the real estate market and she may have no equity. Again, you need to answer the questions in paragraph 1. Also, she may want to just be off the loan so it will not hurt her credit.
I would also like to know source of his free legal help. Most peole get legal aid for divorce, evictions, bankruptcy, etc. Not for diputes between homeowners.
Without more a few things. Since he is on the deed you cannot evict him from the house. If he will not budge or be cooperative that is a tough one. One possible solution is for you daughter to be refinanced off of the loan but you will needs bf co-operation. The real solution if all else fails is filing for a partition.
A partition action is when two owners cannot agree on whether to sell a place, and you need to seperate ownership you file a lawsuit with the approprate court for a suit to partition. It is a long, costly, lawyer fest but this is the only solution in cetain cases when parties cannot work it out between themselves.
So basically a partition action needs to be filed against bf. No Legal Zoom kits for that.

This stuff takes time..and you are likely not his only case. Be patient. DO NOT CONTACT the insurance co yourself, as you may mistakenly undo what the lawyer has progressed on.
If the lawyer is handling this directly with the insurance agency, I can think of no place that you can get this information, unless you can the lawyer and obtain your file.
If the lawyer has filed a claim in the court system on your behalf you can go down to the court house and view the file to see what has transpired.
Until you sign a release in favour of the insurance company stating you are taking X amount of dollars in full and final settlement, the insurance agency won't cough up anything, so hopefully you have not signed one.
There are laws strictly limiting what lawyers can and cannot do with client's monies so he would be a very brazen and stupid lawyer to take your money.
If you are REALLY concerned that he has done so, contact your local bar association or law society and file a complaint.
What Kind Of A Lawyer Am I Looking For?
I Am Trying To Help Out One Of My Best Friends Neice'S. She Had Her Kids Taken Away From Her Even Though There Was No Abuse Or Neglect. Basically It'S Because She Is Young And Poor. The Social Worker Keeps Coming Up With Things For The Girl To Do, And When She Does Them They Come Up With Something New. The Justification The Social Worker Gives Is &Quot;Because I Said So&Quot;. The State Has Assigned An Attorney To The Girl But The Attorney Is Close Friends With The Social Worker And Has Been Blatantly Unprofessional Throughout The Whole Ordeal. I Am Trying To Find An Attorney Who Will Do The Case Pro Bono But I Realized That I Don'T Have Any Idea What Kind Of Lawyer Takes This Kind Of Case?
A lawyer who works in the family law field is the type of lawyer she needs. If it is true that the lawyer she has is not representing her interests she should ask the court to appoint another attorney. It is more likely that she is lying to you about why the child is in state custody, and about what her attorney said to her.
You will not likely be able to find an attorney who would take the case with no money. She should get a job and try to hire an attorney.
The child is also assigned an attorney, your friend should try to talk to that attorney if she can, to try to get that attorney on her side. If the attorney for the child feels that the mother is trying to do what is required to get her child back it is very persuasive with the court.
Please ignore diditall, and never get a lawyer out of county, only an attorney who is regularly in the county will be most familiar with the court rules and able to represent her better. Also, attorneys have the ethical duty to represent their client, regardless of who pays the bill. A judge would not appoint an attorney who is known to work against their client. Another mistake by diditall, showing that she is not knowledgable about how attorneys work.

You are in need of elder law attorney in Georgia or one in az that also is licensed in GA.
You need to find out all you can about the law, and only a psychiatrist can commit someone, but it doesn't sound like that is what she needs or you want.
She wants to live at home, so it would be better to find out how to get her in home care in GA.
That keeps everyone happy, and is recommended by most states and doctors as well.
You can also talk to social security and ask them , or the states medicaid offices.
You have to find out a lot of things.
best wishes to you
