"In short folks get a good lawyer before you spend one nickel on any such "services" and listen to him or her"|
Easy to say, hard to actualize. Just like with auto mechanics, air conditioner repairmen, and contractors, there is utterly no way to know who is or who is not a "good lawyer". No way.
I have mounted two lawsuits in my life. In both, I thought I had a dead to rights case. I got absolutely smoked on the first one. My "expert witness" possibly showed up DRUNK (I don't know that for sure, of course, I didn't perform a breathalyzer test on him; but he was red-red-red faced and rolled his head around as he spoke like he was chanting some kind of religious mantra and he was disqualified within about 3 sentences after giving his curriculum vitae. He submitted a $3750. bill and I told him literally to go **** himself. Never heard from him again. It was simply jaw-dropping. He was literally thrown out of the courtroom before his ass warmed up the chair. My attorney in that case was great with the great wall of books (this was back when they used books) He had elegant, upscale offices. He was very erudite and had a dignified appearance. But as an articulator of sharpness, as an aggressive litigator, he utterly sucked. Mr. Polite blew the case big time, and I almost was held in contempt for outbrusting against the diatribe of the opposing atty and calling him out on a 3rd grade math mistake. How are you supposed to figure out whether an atty is a good litigator, a scrapper? Should you call him/her an incompetent mother****er in his offices and see how he defends himself? My answer is yes.
This second case, I am well on my way to losing. My attorney is, again, just not aggressive, not ahead of the paperwork, not anticipatory.
The problem with ALL these things is that you have to know AT LEAST 75% of what the so-called professional knows in order to beneficially evaluate them. You cannot rely upon recommendations, we are now in an era where it is perfectly OK to bull**** anybody with anything in order to take their money.
Lawsuits are for losers.
