Are you planning to file a petition for a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy? Were you aware that when you employ the services of an attorney for this process, the success rate for Chapter 7 bankruptcy claims exceeds 95%? When an attorney’s services are employed for Chapter 13 claims, the success rate is 55%.
Business bankruptcies in 1980 comprised approximately 13% of all bankruptcy cases. In 2014, the most bankruptcy filings came from California, Florida, Illinois, Georgie, and Ohio. Of the total number of bankruptcies filed in the United States at that time, 97% were personal and three per cent were business.
Currently, business bankruptcies represent approximately three percent of all bankruptcies. There are over 1.5 million people, on average, that petition for bankruptcy
While minor fender benders can usually be settled out of court — with or without the help of insurance — a more serious car accident requires the help of a car accident lawyer. Car accidents kill thousands of people every year, and motorcyclists are 26 times more likely to be killed in a crash. Thousands more are seriously injured. These instances should always be taken seriously.
A car accident lawyer can help settle a number of things in the case of an auto accident. Here’s how:
Knowledge of Law and Procedure
There are a number of things to consider following car or motorcycle accidents. What are the damages? Were there any injuries? Who, if anyone, is at fault? There are laws that determine the proceedings of these instances that only a personal injury lawyer or accident attorney would know.
Hiring an attorney who has demonstrated expertise and success in the area will ensure that you have a shot at winning your case. In addition to knowing the ins and outs of the subject in question, he or she will also know of any statutes of limitation that could bar you from filing a lawsuit or inform you of any special exceptions in your state.
No Legwork for You
While you should absolutely be in touch with your lawyer to know the details of your case, your lawyer is the one who directly deals with the court as well as other individuals and groups involved in the case. In the case of a car accident, your first priority is dealing with your personal health and possible injuries. The last thing you want to do is negotiate an insurance settlement or file a lawsuit. That’s what your car accident lawyer is for.
Your attorney is able to organize the evidence that you provide in a comprehensive manner to submit to the courts or an insurance company. Having someone take care of these logistics allows you to go about your life and take care of yourself first.
An Attorney Will Fight for You
Being your advocate is arguably the most important role of an attorney. If you represent yourself, there’s no one on your side. Having at least one person can really leverage the case to swing in your favor. They are able to act on your behalf and have only your benefits in mind.

Are you in need of a criminal defense attorney? Perhaps you have been involved in a car accident, or have been pulled over for a DUI? Maybe you are a physician being sued for medical malpractice?

1. DUI – Driving Under the Influence, otherwise known as DUI is one of the most common charges that lead people to hiring a criminal defense attorney.

There are certain divorce situations in which a couple will not need the services of a divorce attorney. Divorce forms can be obtained at the local city or town hall that a couple can fill out and submit on their own, if they are entering an uncontested divorce. However, questions could still arise during the process that would best be answered by an uncontested divorce attorney. Of course, this type of divorce is certainly the easiest way for a couple to go when dissolving their m
Every few election cycles the idea of term limits rears its ugly head. The idea is to limit corruption on the side of politicians but in the vein of many actions undertaken with that goal, there are a host of unintended consequences that come along for the ride. Recently, presidential candidate, Donald Trump announced that he would propose a constitutional amendment mandating term limits for members of Congress. One only has to look to what happened when the California legislature passed the same thing for its members in 1996.
An amendment to the California state constitution was passed by the legislature in 1990. With this, the California legislature joined that of 14 other states in passing term limits for its legislators. The then Congressman Newt Gingrich (R-Georgia) even made term li
