Why You Should Never Use a Court-Appointed Lawyer

Lawyers

You want an attorney who will always put you first, not someone who will put his or her interests and reputation first. Most lawyers will not even tell you if they are Court Appointed or not – and that's just one of the reasons why you should never use a Court Appointed Attorney. Attention When you go into court for a hearing, you are allowed to be represented by a lawyer. But you don't have to hire one. You can represent yourself. And you should.

What is Comparative Fault?

What is Comparative Fault?

General Legal
Comparative fault is a legal doctrine that allows a plaintiff to recover full damages for a tort committed by a defendant who was not acting in concert with the plaintiff. In other words, a defendant may be found to be liable for a wrong committed by another under a theory of "guilt by association."

This principle can be applied to the parties involved in a multi-party lawsuit and trials involving multiple defendants. It also applies to claims of negligence, such as in automobile accidents and medical malpractice cases. Comparative Fault is a part of the "fault" part of the…

Why Are Record Expungements Important?

Why Are Record Expungements Important?

General Legal, Legal Matters
In the wake of the #MeToo movement, many advocates have mounted a renewed push for the expungement of felony convictions from the records of thousands of people after they're released from prison. The idea is that millions of people convicted of felonies have their records on file, making it difficult for those people to find and retain jobs, housing, and other necessities. Records are often sealed due to concerns about the victim's privacy, but records are also often sealed due to public safety concerns. In either case, a sealed record should not be an excuse for the general public to carry on as if the person who committed the offense never existed. It is incumbent upon the public to understand how important it is to seal criminal records. What are…
