    The correct answer is the Missouri Medical Lien Law, §430.225 RSMo. The Law sets out a formula which entitles all medical providers who have perfected their lien rights to share in a pro rata share of fifty percent of the net proceeds of the claim, which is that which remains after payment of attorneys' fees, costs and expenses. This statute protects both the injured party and the medical provider who has not been paid by the injured party throughout the pendency of the personal injury claim....

  2. Lawyers are charging differently for the same case. Why?

    And some lawyers are better than others, may have vastly more, different or varied experience than others, which is why they can charge more because their services are in higher demand, but, of course, they only have so much time and so many cases on which to spend their expertise. Supply and demand is definitely in play. Capitalism, my friend, is the short answer.

    Correct, the Motion to Quash must be heard before you can continue to go after the judgment debtor's asset you have garnished. Now, that does not mean you have to wait to go after other assets the judgment debtor may have, or his paycheck by garnishing the employer. Hope you weren't injured.

    Mind you, also, that since immigration law is based on federal law, your attorney does not need to be local. Understood that being able to have a local lawyer is preferable, it is just not required for immigration cases.

    Yes, ICE can show up. Safe to work? - depends on what you mean by safe. Can they be deported? Any one illegally present can be placed in removal proceedings. Can ICE show up at home? Yes. Have them consult with immigration attorney in their area as soon as possible.

    On burn and disfigurement cases, we always add the plastic surgeon's consultation and report fee to the list of damages. Get yourself a lawyer who has handled these types of cases before. Otherwise, you will be shooting in the dark as to the true merits and value of your case.

    He can file a claim, but it is a dubious one since both you and your friend's credibility are shot unless each of you persist in this lie. Even here in this post you say you were "a little dazed" but at the same time, that you were "uninjured". Are we to believe that you somehow you got dazed from a non-injury? I always tell people to tell the truth, and if the truth is that your friend was driving, he should not prevail on an injury claim since he was the one driving and at fault. Now,...

  9. I want to marry a man from el salvador his visa expired more than 3 yrs when we apply does he go back to el salvador.

    The basic answer is that this case would be considered a one-step adjustment with an overstay. If he were down in El Salvador, you would have to first get him here, then, second, he would have to apply to adjust status. Since he is already in the US, and entered legally, the fact his visa expired is cured by marriage to a US citizen, and thus the 2 steps are combined into 1 step. Because there are issues here, you should consult with competent counsel before filing on your own. We have had 2...

    There is a very complicated analysis which needs to be conducted on the very particular facts of your case in order to determine whether the felony qualifies for purposes of immigration law to render you excludable. You absolutely need a solid opinion from a solid immigration attorney before you even think about leaving the US.
