In Search Of A Lawyer That Will Do Pro-Bono Work For A High Profile Criminal Case. Case Is In Rock Island, Il
The Case Involves Child Endangerment Involving Two Women, One In Which Was The Mother Of The Child Who Was Badly Hurt. The Other Women Has Been Charged And Is Seeking Legal Assistance From A Lawyer Who Specializes In This Type Of Criminal Case. It Has Made The Media. And The Woman Is Currently Unemployed.
Good news, the woman may be eligible for a free public defender. The judge will probably ask her if she has a lawyer at her next court date. She should then say she cannot afford one and ask for the public defender to be appointed. The judge might just ask her a few questions about her financial situation or may ask her to fill out a form with this information (the form will be in the courtroom).
IMHO, public defenders are very good lawyers who do the best they can with few resources. You can contact the PD in Rock Island at (309) 558-3530.
If the woman does not qualify for a public defender, she will most likely have to come up with the money to pay an attorney. It's rare for attorneys to do criminal cases pro bono. She can try calling Prairie State to see if they can refer her to anyone (Prairie State does not do criminal, just civil). Their number is (309) 794-1328. She can also try the Rock Island County Bar Association to see if they can refer her. I couldn't find a number for that, but the president is Stephen Andich and his office is (309) 788-9337.
A private lawyer will probably ask for the entire fee up front. Most people borrow from family or take out a second mortage to come up with it if they don't have savings to fall back on.

Less Than 24 Hours After Our Mother'S Death My Brother Was At Her Home With His Meddling Wife And They Brought Wife'S Mother Who Is An Appraiser To Appraise Home. I Was Cleaning Up After Mom And Said &Quot;No!&Quot; It Hasn'T Even Been 24 Hours Yet And You Guys Are Selling Off All Mother'S Belongings!&Quot; They Called Police On Myself And Our Two Sisters And Other Brother To Try And Get Their Way.

Another Home Next Door Is Paid For And The Meddling Wife Wants To Sell Quickly For 25K. Please Help.
YOu need to get a probate atty, get your butt to the courthouse and get an intestate estate opened if you hope to have any impact on what will happen here.
The reverse mortgage property is technically owned by the bank pending the determination of the open reverse mortgage. You generally have the option to pay it off or the bank takes posession.
I Need Legal Advice Help!!!!?
Right Basically My Employer Wants Money Or They Are Gonna Shop Me To The Police.
On A Tuesday I Was At Work On An 8 Hours Shift Really Busy Too. When My Till Got Cashed Up I Was Told That It Was 75 Pound Up. It Turns Out There Where Issues With Other Tills Too And Another Person Was 80 Pound Up However Because I Had To Leave This Was The End Of It And I Remained 75 Pound Up. On The Wednesday I Came In And Was Given Another Till However During The Day I Was Pulled Into The Managers Office And Told That There Was A Mistake On The Cash Drops The Previous Day And My Till Was In Fact 75 Pounds Down. As A Result Because The Missing Cash Was Missing And Still Was He Had To Suspend Me Pending Investigation. In Between Al This Though I Resigned Cos I Got A New Job Too And Was Offered To Reduce My Notice Period From 2 Weeks Down To 1 Week. Meaning I Would Not Be Present During The Disciplinary If It Ever Went To One. I Got Escorted From The Buidling And Was Not Present When My Till Got Cashed Up. I Have Now Been Rang Today (Sunday) And Told That My Till On The Wednesday Was Also Down By 60 Pounds. Iv Been Told That As A Result And Because I Am Leaving. I Would Have To Pay Back The 130 Pounds Thats Gone Missing Or Be Reported To The Police.
What Should I Do Because I Havent Taken This Money?
Your question does not make a lot of sense. Anytime you or someone else has either 75/80 pounds up/down is a problem. Most companies will have a rule that you are allowed a maximum amount off, then get disciplined. There are usually certain rules that most companies follow on how they count the drawers before/after each shift and most of the time, the employee should be present when this is done to verify counted correctly. The fact that you were down again a 2nd time for 60 pounds is very questionable. Either way, up/down there is a problem be it the employee or other staff that work there.
The fact that they escorted you out, implies they believe you to have stolen that money and if not paid back, then they will file a police report of this theft.
If you have not taken the money, then they still have the burden of proof to show that you stole it. But in most states, if you live in the US, they cannot collect and is a matter of a loss of doing business, but if in the US and most states are at will, meaning they can fire you. But based on you using pounds, means that you are not in the US, so would need to contact the equivalent of the department of labor where you live to see what the rules are where you live.
If indeed you did not take the money and you get charged with theft, you only option is to hire a lawyer for your legal rights period. Granted a lawyer may cost you more than the 130 pounds but if they charge you with theft, could prevent you from getting future employment and on your record forever.
Law Firm Changes My Lawyer, Can I Refuse To Accept?
I Have Hired A Lawyer To Represent Me. An Agreement Is Signed With The Lawyer Who Works For A Law Firm. The Lawyer Now Quits From This Law Firm. The Law Firm Assigns Another Lawyer, But I Do Not Like This New Lawyer. Can I Refuse This Change Of My Lawyer? I Know I Can Fire My Lawyer Without Any Reason. For This Case, I Think My Refusal Is Because The Law Firm Is At Fault, And I Do Not Want To Pay For Them For Termination Of The Agreement.
The answer is in your contract that they made you sign. But it may be hard to read it all. Call your old lawyer and ask him the low down. Talk to the head of the law firm and say you don't like new lawyer, and can they assign another one in the firm. But, if you really like the one you had, why didn't he take you with him? He must know that he can't. But if you know your rights, maybe you can go to him. It may be legal for you to follow him, but illegal for him to ask you. Call the state bar and file a complaint if you are still not happy. After all, you are the one who has to be happy.
I Am Currently In The Middle Of A Nasty Divorce And Am Fighting For Custody Of My Almost Three Year Old Daughter.My Future Ex Husband Has Decided To Move To Alabama.Can He Move And Still Fight Me For Custody?What Steps Should I Take Now?He Filed For A Change Of Venue (We Are In Alaska) And I Asked The Judge For More Time Because His Mom Was Going To Write A Letter Stating That Change Of Venue Should Be Denied.She Is Not Going To Write The Letter Now,She Says Its Pointless Now That He Is Moving Out Of State.What Should I Do Now?Im Am Lost!! I Just Want Whats Best For My Baby Girl.I Am A Student At The University Of Alaska And Cannot Afford An Attorney.I Need Some Sort Of Help.
No court in Alabama has jurisdiction over custody of your child--only Alaska is your child's "home state" and and such the only state that can decide custody issues. He could get the divorce from you in Alabama once he established residency there, but they have no jurisdiction over custody whatsoever.
Look at the pleadings---copy the whoever vs. whoever part and file a "Response" saying that the Motion should be denied based on the fact that Alaska is the child's home state because the child lives there and has lived there for at least the past 6 months and therefore Alaska is the only state that has jurisdiction.
And since he's moved to Alabama be sure to ask for SOLE custody now.
EDIT--since your edit--you need to go get your child and do whatever you have to do to raise her. Don't let his parents get custody (they have certain rights). Get a full time job, go to school part time--or go back in a few years--that's what I did. I didn't finish school until I was 29 b/c I had a baby to take care of--but the point is---I did it. So can you--but right now, put your child first--she has to come before your education at this point. You can get an education anytime, but you only get to lose your daughter once and she's lost forever.
EDIT--YES! Go get her unless there is some file marked order from the Court placing the child with his parents. I don't suggest you disobey a court order--but if there is no OFFICAL court Order--you still have all custody rights and you need to use them. Who gives a **** what the next judge thinks? Do you have the same judge for your divorce that you do for your Order of Protection? (I hope not). Does your school have a law school? If so, they might have a legal clinic that can help you. If not, call legal services. You are not entitled to an attorney since this is not a criminal case, but legal services might can help or call someone recently out of law school--they are probably hungry (meaning they won't put your case on the back burner) and might work out a payment plan with you.
Can A Client Sign A Waiver Excluding An Attorney From Being Sued For Negligence?
If A Lawyer Takes A Retainer And Doesn'T Do Any Work, Can A Waiver Signed By The Client Absolve Them From Being Sued??
If an attorney accepts a retainer and does no work you might have several actions. First, you have an obvious breach of contract, second there exists a tort in negligence and potentially an intentional or gross recklessness tort.
An attorney contract absolving the counsel from any or all of these potential actions is contrary to public policy, likely a product of unfair unequal bargaining (adhesion contract) and likely contrary to State Bar rules. So your answer is NO!
About the greatest limitation on right to bring suit would be to require Arbitration to resolve any breach of the attorney-client relationship.
This will be upheld nearly universally.
