    I agree with my colleagues with an addition: If this injury took place less than two years ago, you might consider a consultation with an attorney who handles civil rights claims to determine whether the officer used excess force during the altercation. Good luck.

    No, he has not lost his right to oppose your appeal. You could raise the fact that he did not oppose your motion for reconsideration, but that would be pointless because he was under no obligation to do so. Yes, you need to serve your adversary. There is nothing you can do to shorten the appeal time. The appeals court will get to your case when they want to. The litigants have no say whatsoever. BTW, filing an appeal is a tricky matter even for experienced practitioners. You should seriously...

    There are some lawyers who practice in the field of legal ethics from various perspectives, but it is not a recognized specialty, such as certified civil or criminal. You should consider looking for an attorney who practices in the same field as the attorney you have ethical questions about. You should also consider looking for attorneys who have gained recognition in their field, such as by having an AV-rating from Martindale, the only nationwide attorney rating organization, and who have been...

    "Legally," they can get whatever is on the public record if they want to pay someone to do the digging.

    From the facts you gave, there is no conflict that would disqualify X's attorney. As to the second part of your inquiry, everyone who appears in court has an obligation to be truthful. If you have evidence that your X lied to the court, alert your attorney and let him handle it.

    You are asking a question that can't be answered on the facts that you present. You could write for pages and not provide enough information for an answer. The value of a case depends on too many factors to list here. Some of them: How you got the original injury, your age, your activity level, your weight, what you do for a living, your family situation, whether the injury will cause you financial hardship, how you come across as a witness, how the doctor comes across, the county you file suit...

    I agree with my colleague that this is not a malpractice issue. A key question that needs to be answered is whether the delayed response by the daycare center caused harm to your child or worsened the harm from the seizure. It's not enough to show that the daycare was negligent; you also need to prove that the daycare's negligence caused an identrifiable harm to your child. Before you seek out an attorney, speak to your child's doctors and get a feel for what they think about causation. Good luck.

    If I understand your question, you are asking whether the answering attorneys on Avvo are giving responses designed to entice you into hiring them, rather than straightforward explanations of general principles of law. Speaking only for myself - but probably for most attorneys - I don't have the time to bring on clients who don't have valid and therefore profitable issues. I practice law to provide a service, but it is equally important that I make enough to pay my employees and provide for my...

    Just a general note in response to the first part of your post: A law firm is a business, not a charity and not a public service. It's objective has to be to turn a profit, otherwise it closes its doors. That being said, many attorneys engage in pro bono work, some more than others. We can only do that, however, if we are making enough to survive. As to the second part, I'm not at all clear what your question is. If you think that your attorneys have somehow bungled your case, you could seek a...

    I disagree with my colleagues on some of their recommendations. A substantial number of negative reviews come from clients who are unhappy because they had unrealistic expectations that were not met or who had a complaint about their bills. And, a substantial number of positive reviews are solicited by the attorneys from clients they know are satisfied. So, many sites are thoroughly unreliable. Some of the better methods of checking the credentials are: the state and/or local bar association;...
