What Kind Of Lawyer Do Or Attorney Do I Need To Obtain In Which I Am The Victim Of Income Tax Fraud?Help!?
Normally, the victim of tax fraud is the government. It is they who are owed the taxes, and it is they who have been defrauded. Now.. if what you mean is that someone sold you a some sort of a tax scam, then you need to consult with 1) the state (or US) attorney, to prosecute them for the crime of promoting a tax scam. BEFORE you do that though, you need to consult with a tax attorney to make sure that you aren't criminally liable.
After that, you *may* have a cause of action for a civil case against the perpetrator of the scheme. Any competent general practice attorney should be able to handle that for you, either with the assistance of the tax attorney or seperately.

Should I Find A New Attorney?
I Had An Car Accident Last Year That Was Not My Fault And I Got Me An Attorney To Work On The Case. Its A Year Already And It Doesn'T Seem Like He Want To Work On My Case. I Always Have To Call Him And Most Time He'S Not Available To Take Call. I Would Leave A Message About My Case Update And Sometime It Takes Him A Couples Day To Call Me Back And Sometime I Have To Call Back If I Want Answer. When I Ask To To File An Aberration For Me And He Say Okay. Then A Couple Of Months Goes By And I Call Back And He Still Haven'T File It. It'S Hard To Reach Him Because He Is Either Not Available For Phone Call Or It Take Him Days To Call Me Back. So Far, There Has Been No Change To The Case And It'S Always The Same Thing He Told Me Every Time That He Didn'T Get A Response Back. I Am So Tired Of Always Being The One To Call Him About Any Updates On My Case And I Feel Like He Didn'T Really Want To Help Me With My Case Seriously. What Should I Do? Would It Be Bad If I Get Another Attorney? My Case Should Be Ready To Settle Already But He Keep Saying He Didn'T Get A Response Back For About 3 Or 4 Months Now.
Is this attorney on a contingency? Probably the agreement says that if you switch attorneys, he can charge hourly rates for the work he has done. You can talk to another attorney. Get a feel for what your case is worth and if it would be worth it to switch.
You can also talk to the state bar association and see if they can nudge your attorney. Although then the attorney might not do the best job for your case.
At this point, I would send a letter to the attorney asking for a case status, in writing, within 10 days. Let the attorney know you expect a monthly update letter. Also ask what the statute of Tell the attorney you feel he is not handling the case properly. If you don't get a response, then either report the attorney to the bar or switch attorneys.
Just be aware if you are overdoing the calls and contacts for status. If you are pestering the attorney, that may be why you are getting slow responses.
I'm assuming this is in the US, but I never heard of aberration as a legal term.

I don't know why the lawyer did so poorly for you, but I agree that you didn't seem to get good representation.
Saying that and proving that are two different things. Before you can win a case you need to prove something happened. So start with that question how can you prove that he was bribed or under-performed.
You could sue him for malpractice based on the low payment you got. To do that you would have to find out what the average payment is for that kind of case and if your lawyer under-performed dramatically then you could sue him based on that. Lawyers are subject to malpractice just as doctors are.
However, the original company, Tire City, and their insurance company are immune to any lawsuit because you agreed to the case, you signed the legal agreement and the contract probably has a clause that says you cannot hold them responsible for any further complaints or law suits. You need a lawyer to look at the agreement to see if this clause is included, but I am fairly certain it is since insurance companies want to pay as little money as possible.
You need to talk with a new lawyer about this. Since you didn’t specify the amount was in pounds, dollars, euros, or rubles etc. I can’t tell what nation you are in, but I can tell you that if you are talking dollars then you got gypped big time. I could have negotiated a better settlement and I have no experience as a lawyer. Gather the records for the original treatment and the bills you got for it. Then ask why the issue of possible and future brain damage didn’t come up? Why didn’t the lawyer want to take this case to court? If you husband was doing something illegal or if there were any question about how he got injured, or what his injuries are then your case might be in doubt. An explosion, skull fractures and blown eardrums are very easy to detect and prove. From the information you have given me your case should have been a breeze with the possibility of at least 10 times the settlement you got. Also what caused the explosion and why were they not named in the lawsuit. Tires don’t just blow up for no reason. Was you husband over inflating a retread tire, or was he inflating a brand new tire? Did Tire City have any safety rules about tire inflation? Was their any safety policy in effect and did your husband violate it? If he did then that might explain the poor settlement and the lawyer’s desire to not go to court, but if your husband was doing a standard job, with standard safety precautions then the tire explosion wasn’t his fault. Even if a tire has a blow out, even if it is a large truck tire I don’t see it generating enough force to break your husbands skull or rupture his eardrums. If you are talking about a tire for the Astro Dump Truck that stands between 10’ and 6’ tall then I might see the pressure causing a problem, but it if was a standard truck sized tire then you husband would have to have been laying his head on top of that tire or in between the tire and the tire well.
To give you any good advice I need a better understanding of the circumstances. This should have been in the original testimony and sworn to a record, which your lawyer should still have a copy of. You should start with getting all the records that he has on your case. If he has a poor record trail then that is a case for malpractice right there! If he “lost” your husband records after only 4 years then that sounds like he is operating a pretty poor law firm and could be grounds for a lawsuit against him. Talk with another law firm and explore your options. Most firms will at least hear your case before charging you, and you can probably get them to accept your case on a contingency basis where they get a portion of your winnings only if they are able to win the case. The fee will end up being 1/3 or 1/4 of your winnings, but 2/3 or 3/4 of something is far better than nothing. Have you contacted the state bar or whatever legal organization exists that overseas lawyers. Have you tired to file a complaint with them? Has anyone else? How long has this lawyer been practicing, and what is his record?
Any Lawyers That Can Offer Advice On How I Can Get The State To Prosecute A Robbery/Sexual Assault Case?
Even Though I Have Saliva Dna Evidence To Prove A Particular Male Sexually Assaulted Me, The State Of Florida Is Refusing To Prosecute This Guy Because After I Was Robbed And Assaulted While Charging My Phone In My Vehicle, I Tossed Out A Marijuana Pipe I Had In My Console, Because I Was Afraid I Would Get In Trouble With The Law. The Police Found It Anyway And I Admitted It Was Mine Before They Even Asked Who'S It Was, But The State Is Saying That My Actions Were Dishonest And Therefore It Sheds Doubt On My Story. Now They Will Not Prosecute This Scum-Bag Because They Don'T Know Whether I'M A Victim Or I'M Lying About It And Had A Consenting Sexual Encounter With Someone I Knew. What Options To I Have Now? I'M Willing To Take A Polygraph Or Whatever Is Necessary To Prove I'M Being Truthful, Even Though I Know It Cant Be Used In Court. Should I Put Pressure On The State And Go To The Media? I Don'T Have Money For A Lawyer And Don'T Know What Else To Do.
How exactly were you sexually assaulted? He went to kiss you? Saliva DNA found where?
I'm just curious how this "sexual assault" went down. My guess is the cops think it's so trivial it's not worth pursuing regardless of the truth.
Did you get high with the same guy that sexually assaulted you prior to the incident?
I Married A Canadian! Need Legal Help!?
My Wife And I Met Online And Got Married This Last Year. We Decided We Were Getting Married The Day Before She Left Canada To Come To The States. We Didn'T Have Anything Planned Out Though. Our Marriage License And Invitations Were All Gotten And Sent Out Nearly A Week After She Arrived. It Was Spur Of The Moment For Us. Now We Have To Go Back To Canada Together, And Are Worried About Crossing The Border. We Haven'T Changed Her Name Or Filled Out Any Paper Work For The Us Or Canadian Governments. Thing Is, Neither Of Us Want To Get Citizenship Or Even Work In Each Others Countries. We Want To Hop Back And Forth Every Few Months Between Countries. We Do Lots Of Ministry/Church Work And Are Completely Volunteer With No Financial Income. Would This Be Legal? What Do We Need To Do? Any Advice, Specifically From Someone With An Immigration Background Would Be Awesome. Thanks Much!
You'll have issues with that.
US citizens are free to visit Canada for up to 180 days each year. Same with Canadians visiting the United States. Visitors are not permitted to attend school, work, or look for work. Nor can they obtain driver's licenses and (in Canada) you can't obtain health insurance, open bank accounts, etc. However, your entry into Canada is at the discretion of Canadian Border Services and hers US Border Services.
There is no issue with her name change. When she returns to Canada, if she'll need to register her name change and obtain a new passport. Until then, its still her picture on it and legally she still has her maiden name.
You will run into border issues repeatedly crossing or repeatedly spending large amounts of time in the other's country. CBSA or USBS isn't going to buy that you are literally counting 180 days each year, that you have no sources of income, that you haven't applied for green cards/permanent residency, etc. It's going to look extremely bad after a few crossings and as the 180 days starts adding up, some agent will start asking for proof that you have jobs, a permanent address, travel medical insurance, bank statements, etc., etc. or just deny you entry.
Your ministry/church should be able to provide you with immigration help... typically an immigration lawyer or consultant, or at least a contact person in various embassies. While religious/charity groups do not require work permits, typically groups will ensure that you have long term tourist visas in order to avoid the 180 day limit, plus long term travel health insurance, and proof of your ministry/church work in the other country. In the case of Canada and the US, you should also consider applying for a NEXUS pass if you are going to be crossing frequently.
Finally... you do need plans for getting her a green card and/or you gaining permanent residency in Canada.
