Every individual who violates the personal or property rights of another is financially responsible for the damages cause by his or her act. To collect money for this civil wrong there must be damages or injury; without one or both, there can be no recovery of money. If you have a claim that has a complicated set of circumstances or evidence, one which obviously demands legal advice, than you need a lawyer. If you hired Attorney I. M. Sharp and he had to burn the midnight oil for you and/or even win your case, there can be no objection to his collecting his fee. But, far too often, in cases of a completely uncontestable claim, one finds themselves handing over a huge percentage of that recover to a lawyer for doing minus-zip! Im referring to the average motor vehicle accident case, one where its absolutely clear that the other individual, Fumbling Fred Fuddle, is clearly at fault. Attorney Sharp sends out his routine Letter Of Representation to Fuddles carrier THE GRANITE MOUNTAIN INSURANCE CORPORATION, secures the Medical Bills and Reports from your Ole Doc Comfort, and procures a Police Report, if one is available. Then, for less than two dollars worth of stamps and an hour spent on negotiations Sharp (depending upon where you live) extracts a fee of between 331/3/% to 50% in settlement. For example, say Attorney Sharp settles a case for $3,000, and then takes a fee of 1/3 of that $3000. It doesnt take a degree in mathematics to figure out that youre paying him $1,000 for what is usually - - less than a few hours work. After youve paid Attorney Sharps fee, along with your medical bills to Doc Comfort, and after deducting the money recovered from the time lost from work out of that $3000 settlement, the bottom-line monetary compensation to you has been plundered ! IN THEORY, the money you have left, after deducting these expenses, is your Financial Reward for the Pain and Suffering youve been forced to endure. But with the naive signing on with a lawyer (to settle a claim thats clearly not your fault) youre left with a feeling of decimation because youve definitely not been left with what you deserved for the physical and emotional ordeal youve been forced to deal with. When Attorney Sharp settles your claim he doesnt deduct your out-of-pocket expenses before he takes his fee. Instead, he takes his fee Right Off The Top where the cream floats. Then, with whats left, your out-of-pocket expenses are paid. FOR EXAMPLE: The damage to your Motor Vehicle is $1,500, your Medical Bills are $400, and your Lost Wages are $600, for a total of $2,500. Even in a case of Clear Liability, the lawyer not only takes a one-third cut from the Pain and Suffering portion of the settlement, he also takes a third of your out-of-pocket expenses ! Now, think it out: Your Property Damage was $1,500, Your Medical Bills $400 and your Lost Wages $600 came to a total of $2,500. Then youre paid $3000 for your Pain and Suffering so the total settlement is $5,500. In a perfect world, in a case of clear liability, Attorney Sharps fee should have been taken from the $3000 you were paid for your Pain and Suffering. If he did, his fee would have been 1/3 of $3000 or $1,000. But, without fail, Sharp will take his 1/3 of the grand total of $5,500, bringing his fee to $1,833.33. Thats outrageously unfair because, in a case of clear liability, GRANITE MOUNTAIN would have paid you your out-of-pocket expenses of $2,500, - - whether you had a lawyer representing you or not ! ALWAYS REMEMBER: When you handle your own case (should you and GRANITE MOUNTAIN later disagree as to the value of your claim) theres a Time Limit established at which you can break off your negotiations and then proceed to obtain the services of Attorney Sharp. This time limit is called a STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS its never less than a year and in most cases its two or three; some states provide you with this kind of protection for as long as five or six years. To be sure you must check out how much time you have to fuss with Fuddles insurance company before you hand your case to a lawyer to handle for you.

BREAKING Trump Was Up All Night With Attorneys– Emerged With BIG Charges For Someone This Morning President Trump’s unconventional way ofdoing business in Washington has raised a lot of eyebrows. His background in business is one that puthim in a position with a whole lot of latitude. A businessman’s job is to work the systemin the smartest way possible to achieve the goal and to only bring in the lawyers if thingsgo south and can’t be handled with a handshake. President Trump’s new job in the Oval Officeis literally plagued by lawyers. Listening, analyzing, and in some cases, twistingfor their own devices. President Trump’s interactions with formerFBI Director James Comey no doubt intended to be a “lets get on the same page” kindof event but considering that President Trump tends to be an off the cuff kind of guy andJames Comey tends to be a by the book kind of guy, it’s safe to say that they didn’tsee eye to eye on everything. This led to a less than productive workingrelationship and the eventual firing of Comey. Which of course caused all the lawyers wholike to pick apart every single thing that the President does to sing with glee. They felt like this would be a great opportunityto pick him apart. However, when they called James Comey to speakunder oath, all that they found was a whole lot of reading into body language and “hoping”that the left decided to assume was illegal activity. But as was said in the hearing, nobody evergot sent to jail for “hoping” somebody would do something. Because of the way these allegations of misconductwith James Comey have drug on and brought no actual proof of wrongdoing, the Presidenthas decided to do something about it. Via CNN: “Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump’slegal team, in the wake of damning testimony from James Comey, plans to file a complaintagainst the former FBI director with the Justice Department Inspector General and the Senatejudiciary committee early next week, two sources with knowledge of the situation told CNN. The Justice Department, however, has limitedjurisdiction over former employees. They can investigate but the remedy in theevent of finding wrongdoing would be to make a note in Comey’s file should he ever seekto be employed by the Justice Department again. As a businessman, Trump had a long historyof threatening legal action. But the businessman-turned-president rarelyfollowed through on those claims. The new complaint will focus on Comey’stestimony that he gave a friend the content of memos about his conversations with Trumpand asked the friend to then give that information to a reporter. Comey said Friday that he gave the friend— later identified as Daniel Richman, a longtime Comey confidante and Columbia Universityprofessor — the information after Trump tweeted that he may have tapes of his conversationswith the fired FBI director. ‘My judgment was I needed to get that outinto the public square. So I asked a friend of mine to share the contentof the memo with a reporter,’ Comey said Thursday. Trump’s attorney, Marc Kasowitz, could filethe complaints early next week, one source said. Republicans have looked to discredit Comeyby calling him a ‘leaker’ because of the way he disseminated the information aboutTrump. Comey said Thursday that the memos he wrotewere unclassified. Disseminating unclassified information isgenerally not considered leaking and the President did not assert executive privilege over Comey’stestimony. The President himself accused Comey of lyingand leaking Friday on Twitter. ‘Despite so many false statements and lies,total and complete vindication…and WOW, Comey is a leaker!’ Trump tweeted Fridaymorning. The source said the fact that Comey decidedto disseminate the information because of a tweet was ‘gold’ for the lawyers lookingto file a complaint against the former FBI director. ” While it may be somewhat uncharted territoryfor a suit like this to go forward, the President has been plagued by those who will do anythingto make his presidency a failure. He’s kind of like a warrior being held downby a dozen tiny men who want to keep him down, and at some point, he has to stand up andthrow them off. If the media and the lawyers on the Hill whowant to pick him apart decided that they won’t quit, he’s going to have to hit them whereit hurts, otherwise, they’re keeping him from doing his job; and that’s not ok.

Indian Attorneys are people who have gone to law school and who practice the law. They must pass a big exam called the bar exam. This is what makes a student a certified attorney. Sometimes students can have a hard time determining what kind of law they want to practice because there are so many different types.
First, you need to consider all areas of the law. Once you have narrowed your choices down to a three you should start seeking as much information on those choices that you can possibly fund. You will also want to determine what type of firm you want to practice. Maybe you want to do corporate law where you have the opportunity to make partnerships or maybe you want to head out on your own.
BREAKING Trump Was Up All Night With Attorneys – Emerged With BIG Charges For Someone This Morning
There are so many areas of the law that some lawyers specialize in a couple areas, while some focus on just one area of the law. Practicing attorneys that do a generalization of many areas of the law are called general practitioners.
They don’t focus on all the areas, but they choose many areas in which to have great knowledge of. Specialists focus on one area. You may have criminal attorneys, tax attorneys, women’s rights attorneys, and so on. A general practitioner can handle most legal issues that are common.
If you are involved in a complex case or case that is worth a lot of money or a serious matter you will want a specialist. In some cases, people will have multiple attorneys so that they can make sure that their case is being handed to the firm’s full capability and so on.
When it comes to the lawyers, you will mostly see what special training they have gotten. Attorneys are just the name for anyone who can represent you in a court of law. They too have to pas a bar and are state certified. Any lawyer can be an attorney. The only thing is that some lawyers do not litigate.
If you believe that your child is at risk of being taken out of the country by his other parent, or if this has already happened, there are several things you must and should do immediately. If your child is still in the country, you and your attorney should work on precautionary measures, such as finalizing a specific custody order, which is discussed in more detail below. If your child has already been taken, you should contact local law enforcement immediately and possibly file an application under the Hague Convention on Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, which is also explained in further detail below.Before your child is takenOftentimes, there are warning signs of the other parent's intentions. Being aware of these warning signs can help prevent a child abduction to a foreign country. Some of the things to look out for include whether the other parent lacks financial or familial ties to this country but has a strong network of family and friends in his or her home country. If he or she has threatened to take your child out of the country or tried to do so in the past, this is a major red flag. Also ask yourself if the other parent needs to be here for financial reasons or if he or she is financially independent, have they applied for a passport for themselves or the child, have they quit their job, sold their home or changed immigration status. These are all things that may point to an imminent departure and perhaps with your child.You should talk to your attorney immediately if you are concerned. Together, you can work on creating a custody order or modify an existing one with certain preventive measures.To be effective, the order should be specific and properly made. Visitation, for example, should outline certain days and times and not state "reasonable visitation" which is too subjective and difficult to enforce. You should also consider adding provisions about supervised visitation, allowing law enforcement to assist with violations of the order and specifically prohibiting certain pick up places such as day care or school.You should file an application under the Hague Convention immediately because if it has been over a year, the other country may decide that the child is already acclimated to the new country and should not be returned.A Hague Convention application is a civil matter, not criminal. An experienced attorney will help you weigh whether or not you should seek criminal charges against the other parent. Some countries will not return a child if the parent will be arrested or prosecuted. So, this is something you need to carefully weigh with your attorney.If your child has been taken to a country that is not part of the Hague Convention, you can try to go through the judicial system of that country to obtain a custody order in that country or have your existing custody order enforced. Of course, your success will depend on the facts and the country involved. While some countries have consistently worked with the U.S. in child abduction cases, other countries are less cooperative, and even resistant.Since local, federal and international laws are in play when a child is abducted and taken to a foreign country, it is highly recommended that you obtain an attorney experienced in not only international family law but child abduction. Such an attorney can guide you through the process and formulate a plan for returning your child safely.To learn more visit, http://www.findgreatlawyers.com/5ChildCustody.htm
