Greed, Lawyers, And Legal Fees

| June 27, 2014 | 0 Comments

There are a number of instances when a person will get in trouble with the law, and rightfully seek out a criminal defense attorney to help them deal with the criminal charges against them.

This can play out in the following ways;

  • A Plea of Guilty
  • A Plea of Not Guilty
  • A Plea of No Contact
  • An Acquittal
  • Case Dismissal
  • Accept Probation

Depending on who you hire for your criminal defense, it will have a big impact on the type of defense services you get in exchange for your legal fees. Some attorneys attempt to plea every case out, other lawyers try to fight every single case, even ones they know they can’t win.

Take the case in Houston involving the Mexican lady who killed the college professor with her shoe. With the dead man’s hair and blood dried up on the shoe heel, the defense attorney in her corner had a snowball’s chance in hell of winning that case.

I mean, she stabbed him over 50 times with a 6 inch stiletto shoe heel. Who has sympathy for a person with the energy to stab a person over 20 times? It takes a lot of energy to do a stabbing like that. Heck, she could have just walked away after hurting the man enough to get him away from her long enough for her to bail out.

Finding a Good Lawyer

There are a number of times in our lives when we are thrust into a situation in which it will require the hiring of a licensed attorney. The main reason that attorneys are in demand is because the average person may not have the necessary skills or knowledge needed to successfully litigate a case pro se in the court of law.

Litigating a case on your own will leave you subject to not only embarrassment, but an unfavorable result from the court of law at the outcome of any trial you attempt to argue.

There are a number of resources available online to help people find a good lawyer with expertise in the area of law in question. Whether you are looking for a criminal law attorney, a personal injury lawyer, or a bankruptcy attorney, there should be a number of reviews, references, and recommendations of local lawyers who can help you with your case.

Creditor Harassment

Creditor Harassment

| June 9, 2014

Even the most responsible people sometimes find themselves in circumstances that make it difficult to pay their debts. Unemployment, an unexpected emergency, or a prolonged illness can eat into your savings or income and leave you in a position where you’re barely able to afford to keep a roof over your head. If this has happened to you, you are certainly not alone. At some point in their lives, most people find themselves in a position where they have credit cards or other bills that are overdue.

If you don’t know what to expect, things can get scary when the creditors start calling. This is why you need to know your rights and how to deal with collection agencies. The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA) defines what creditors may and may not do when attempting to collect debts. Make no mistake about it, many collection agents will willfully violate this act in an attempt to get you to agree to pay them.Creditor Harassment

Below is a list of some of the deceptive and abusive practices that are prohibited under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act:

  • Calling before 8 am or after 9 pm
  • Continuing to call or send you letters after you’ve notified them in writing to cease contact. They may contact you one additional time to inform you that they are either pursuing legal action or ceasing collection efforts.
  • Contacting you at your place of employment after you’ve told them not to
  • Threatening arrest
  • Threatening legal action if they do not intend to sue you or are legally unable to do so (i.e., Statute of Limitations has expired)
  • Use of abusive or profane language
  • Discussing your debt with third parties other than your attorney or spouse
  • Deceitful practices such as a debt collector claiming to be law enforcement or an attorney
  • Misrepresenting the debt
  • Intentionally reporting false information to the credit bureaus

If a debt collector violates the FDCPA, you can file a civil suit against them for actual damages.

Below is a short video that explains how you should handle creditor harassment.

The Houston Police Department wastes no time at all when it comes to arresting and charging people if they have probable cause indicating their involvement in a criminal offense.

The best thing to do if you are arrested by the police is to keep your mouth shut, not volunteer information, and don’t run or fight the police.Houston-Police-Department-300x188

Once you have made it to jail, its important that you bond out as soon as possible and talk with an attorney to find out what your best options may be when it comes to fighting the charge.

Sometimes, pleading not guilty and fighting the criminal charge accusations in the court of law is the best route to go, when in other cases it makes sense to plea out, accept probation, a fine, or a short time in county jail.

Regardless of what criminal offense you’ve been accused of, its best to always talk with a lawyer who has experience defending people who were in similar predicaments.
