Is Nigella Lawson A Chef?
I'M Researching About Nigella.
Just google her. I put her in my favorites having never heard of her before but here's what I found:
Nigella Lucy Lawson (born 6 January 1960) is a British food writer, journalist and broadcaster. Lawson is the daughter of Nigel Lawson, the former Chancellor of the Exchequer, and Vanessa Salmon, whose family owned the J. Lyons and Co. empire. After graduating from Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford University, Lawson started work as a book reviewer and restaurant critic, later becoming the deputy literary editor of The Sunday Times in 1986. She then embarked upon a career as a freelance journalist, writing for a number of newspapers and magazines. In 1998, Lawson brought out her first cookery book, How to Eat, which sold 300,000 copies and became a bestseller. She went on to write her second book in 2000, How to be a Domestic Goddess, winning her the British Book Award for Author of the Year.
In 2000, she began to host her own cookery series on Channel 4, Nigella Bites, which was accompanied with another bestselling cookery book. The Nigella Bites series won Lawson a Guild of Food Writers Award; however her 2005 ITV daytime chat show was met with a negative critical reaction and was cancelled after attracting low ratings. Lawson hosted the Food Network's Nigella Feasts in the United States in 2006 followed by a three-part BBC Two series, Nigella's Christmas Kitchen, in the United Kingdom. This led to the commissioning of Nigella Express on BBC Two in 2007. Her own cookware range, Living Kitchen, has a value of £7 million, and she has sold more than 3 million cookery books worldwide.
Renowned for her flirtatious manner of presenting, Lawson has been called the "queen of food porn". She is neither a trained chef nor cook, and has assumed a distinctly relaxed approach to her cooking.
In Regards 2 Divorce/Parenting Plan?
I Currently Have A Temp Parenting Plan And My Husband Didnt Show Up 2 The Proposed Hearing Which He Was Served On Or Respond Do I Need 2 Serve Him Again With Finals He Is In Prison Now, Also I Would Like 2 Know If When He Get Out If He Modifies The Parenting Plan Will He Get Weekend Visits??He Has A Bad Criminal Background Such As Drugs High Risk Violent Offender And Has Been In Prison 4 Times My Son Is 6Mths Old And My Husband Has Never Even Held Him
Unfortunately he can fight and probably get some visitation of his children. Having been a volunteer for years in this area, most do get the visitation if they fight for it. What you can do is when and if he does fight for visitation get an attorney involved right away. Bring up his criminal history and drug use. The attorney will ask him to supply a drug test and if he is dirty, than you can demand supervised visitations only. This will at least give you peace of mind that a qualified supervisor is present and making certain your kids are ok.
What supervisors do is they test the parent for drugs before the child even comes to the visit. If they test positive for anything that isn't prescribed to them, the visit isn't allowed. If they are clean that week, then the visit goes through. If he acts badly or does things outside of the rules, he'll be warned once and if it continues or is bad enough, the visit will be ended immediately. This makes it easy on the other parent since they aren't even there or involved in the visit and the other parent cannot blame them for a thing.
Many will tell you he can't get visitation but they haven't dealt with the legal system and only think it should be that a violent person shouldn't get visitation. Studies prove that some contact with both parents are better for the child, even if those parents are not good ones. I don't always agree, but that's the legal and mental health profession and there's nothing we can do about it.
If he proves to be a problem through supervised visitation, then his visitation will get revoked for periods of time as punishment. If he continues bad behavior then a judge will get to hear about it. By the way volunteers document the entire visitation and that goes straight to the judge! If a judge hears about too many problems, then the judge might consider revoking parental privileges. Be aware that most parents who go through the supervised visitation remain on their best behavior.
What Remedies Should Emerge To Stop Vexatious Litigation?
Wikipedia Provides A Definition Of Vexatious Litigation Here.
A Vexatioius Litigant Is A Person Who Files Actions In Court, Without Jus Cause For Doing So. Imagine Being Sued For A Million Dollars, For Something That Never Occurred. When You Are Finally Ready For Trial, Imagine That All Of Your Defense Witnesses Get Sued Too. Each Time A Such A Lawsuit Gets Started, Somebody Has To Pay Several Thousand Dollars To An Attorney. The Courts Get Clogged With Cases That Have No Merit. This Takes Judges' Time Away From Cases That Really Do Deserve Attention.
One Vexatious Litigant Can Cost Millions Of Dollars To The Whole Community. Such A Person Files Complaint After Complaint, Frivolous Or Not, Against One Or Many Different People. Their Cases Need Not Be Just In Court. Such A Person Might Start Making False Police Reports, Or Administrative Complaints Against Every Lawyer, Every Investigator, Every Expert Witness Who Has Contact With Their Case.
Even The Police Are Not Immune From Civilian Complaints. Most Police Agencies Take Such Complaints Very Seriously. It Should Not Be Surprising When A Few Such Complaints Even Stick.
A Few Jurisdictions Have Laws That Make Lists Of Known Vexatious Litigants. Some Vexatious Litigants Claim To Be Judgment-Proof, Showing No Assets Or Income. But If They Had No Money Or Assets, Then How Could They Possibly Afford To Fill Out All The Court Papers?"
This Question Crosses Many Different Jurisdictions. What Remedies Do Progressive Legal Systems Now Require? How Ought Courts Respond When Their Witnesses Start To Disappear, Having Been Sued By A Party To The Case Where They Ought To Appear? On One Hand, We Would Never Want To Stop A Person Who Senses Danger From Contacting Authorities.
On The Other, We Do Not Want To Destroy All Of The Assets For The Persons Who Might Be Assigned To Provide Assistance. This Really Is A Serious Problem At Times, And Society Has A Responsibility To Provide Answers.
This is a real problem, and a tactic that has been used to try and put the gun industry out of business. This can be controlled by making the lawyers subject to malpractice claims from the parties that they file against. If the law were written that the individual lawyer, not his company or insurance company were fully liable for costs and penalties in a failed suit, this practice would quickly end. A further stipulation would be to add a clause that if a lawyer files more that two such cases in a three year period, they will be disbarred.
Problem is, all the people in the government are lawyers and would never agree to this sort of restriction.
Can A Refuse To Pay A Lawyer?
I Hired A Lawyer To Represent Me. I Basically Filed A Motion And Then Hired Her After My Failed Attempts, Thinking Having A “Professional” Would Help My Case. I Agreed And Paid $1000 Retainer Fee For Her Services. I Gave Her Basically Everything She Needed For The Case. The Motion I Filed, Etc. Upon Going To Court She Obviously Didn’T Care Because She Was Asking Me Questions In Court That I Told Her Several Times Before. Anyways She Has Charged Me Additional $150.00 For A Service That I Don’T See Justified She Didn’T Do Anything Or Get Anywhere Like She Promised. I Did Pay Her For Her Services Already But Don'T See How She Can Even Charge Me Extra For Nothing. If I Refuse To Pay This Extra Charge To Her Am I Getting Myself Into More Trouble Than I Want? I Understand These People Are Independent Contractors And I Only Had A Verbal Agreement With Her No Contract. So Basically It’S Her Word Vs. Mine If She Wants To Take Me To Court, Etc. I Feel These &Quot;People&Quot; Bully Alot Of Us Since They Know The Law And Get Away With Things By Using Big Words Or Legal Action Words. Please Help...
Notwithstanding what Lucy said, not all jurisdictions require that fee arrangements for lawyer services be in writing. However, any competent attorney will require one for their own protection. Ask the lawyer for a copy of your signed retainer letter (or if you are recalling now that you did sign one take a look at it). Not all matters are billed out by the hour. Solo practitioners and small practices will often offer a variety of flat fee services depending on the nature of the matter although it is rare for them to do so for a trial which is usually billed either on an hourly basis or a contingent fee basis.
If your retainer letter states that the $1,000 was a retainer for legal services to be billed on an hourly basis then you are liable for whatever time she spent on your matter. If it states that it is a flat fee arrangement for representation not including filing fees or disbursements you may owe her the $150. If it states that is a flat fee for representation including filing fees and disbursements then you owe her nothing.
If you are being billed by the hour your are entitled to a detailed accounting of the time she spent on your matter and should ask for it and if you see something that seems excessive in terms of time then you can bring it to her attention and possibly dispute it with her but $1,000 will not cover a lot of time especially after subtracting filing fees and out of pocket expenses (3 hours or less for most lawyers).
If it turns out this lawyer failed to secure a signed retainer agreement with you then your agreement is an oral agreement and it would become a case of he said she said. I can't guarantee that your lawyer will act the same way but personally if I was careless enough not to secure a retainer agreement with a client and got paid $1,000 and had what I believed to be $150 in open charges for legal services that a client was disputing, push comes to shove I would let it go. I might even let it go with the retainer letter. Litigating over $150 is generally not worth my time.

Changing My Divorce Attorney?
I Am Really Thinking About Changing My Divorce Attorney It Seems Like Am Paying Her All This Money For Nothing She Wants To Do Everything Her And Nothing Is Getting Done Will It Effect Me In Anyways
i sure hope she squeezes every last penny you have. when are people going to understand that the best route is to divorce civlily with no attorneys involved? a divorce made by the persons involved is much cheaper. it will leave more to be divided among the parties rathern than allowing the lawyers to have a cut of the couples assets. the only ones that win in that equation are the lawyers.
