Today in Tallahassee: Outlawing sex with animals?
By Marc Caputo, Times/Herald Tallahassee Bureau Wednesday, March 23, 2011 TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Senate is ready to take a stand: Having sex with animals is wrong. Since 2008, the Senate has tried to make bestiality illegal. But for some reason the Florida House has decided to allow the practice to continue without the threat of punishment. The legislation was proposed after a suspect …

Divorce: What does a “Petition Status for Attorney” involve?

Question by gpurv: Divorce: What does a “Petition Status for Attorney” involve?
My daughter was asked to immediately put $ 2,500 in her lawyer’s trust so they could respond to a request from the opposing council.

Since we didn’t immediately have the $ 2,500, we had to ask the lawyer’s office to remove themselves from the case (temporally). So, they were taken off the court record.

Now opposing council has a court date set for “Petition Status for Attorney”.

Questions:

1. Can my daughter go to the ‘petition’ court date, without a lawyer, and explain to the judge that she will be reinstating her lawyer prior to the divorce case?

2. Should we pay the lawyer “now”, prior to this petition court date? (we don’t want to do this because opposing council will continue to artificially run up our bill until we’re totally broke and can’t pay for the actual divorce trial)

I should add, this divorce has been going on for 19 months and so far her lawyer has been paid and spent $ 23,000. For the actual trial, he wants another $ 10,000

She’s a school teacher.

Best answer:

Call the court…they are there to answer questions on these matters.

Michigan Auto Accident Attorney, Steven M. Gursten, was featured Speaker and Panel Expert for Michigan Trial Lawyers Association Kreiner Seminar

Michigan Auto Accident Attorney, Steven M. Gursten, was featured Speaker and Panel Expert for Michigan Trial Lawyers Association Kreiner Seminar










Detroit, MI (PRWEB) June 14, 2006

Steven M. Gursten of Michigan Auto Law was a featured speaker and panel expert for the seminar entitled “Kreiner Year Two: Fighting Back” for the Michigan Trial Lawyers Association (MTLA).

The seminar focused on the drastic changes in how all Michigan automobile accident cases must now be handled, pursuant to Kreiner v. Fischer, decided by the Michigan Supreme Court in July, 2004.

The forum was primarily offered to help Michigan attorneys assist victims of Michigan car or truck accidents, and to help other Michigan personal injury lawyers better understand the current law and its requirements. Gursten’s comprehensive presentation analyzed what constitutes a good Michigan car accident case and panel experts discussed the lessons to be learned from post-Kreiner litigation and related Michigan auto law cases.

Steven M. Gursten was also featured for his role as a panel forum member in the Detroit Legal News, the official newspaper for the City of Detroit, Wayne County Circuit Court, and the U.S. District Court.

Blogging Event Shares Legal Wisdom and Laughs

Blogging Event Shares Legal Wisdom and Laughs











Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 6, 2008

A new blog showcases the weirdest, funniest, and most poignant words of wisdom from some of Chicago’s greatest trial lawyers. Every day for thirty days, the Your Witness for 30 Days blog (http://yourwitness.wordpress.com) will feature a quote from the new book Your Witness: Lessons on Cross-Examination and Life from Great Chicago Trial Lawyers (edited by Steven F. Molo and James R. Figliulo). The snippets include bizarre courtroom testimony, advice on how to conduct a successful cross, and descriptions of some of the most brazen attorneys in the arena. At times, these real-life tales of courtroom drama sound more like episodes of Law & Order.

The first such quote was contributed by R. Eugene Pincham, one of Chicago’s great courtroom advocates. “Cross-examining a witness who has made a contradictory statement on the witness stand from what he said in a written statement that you have is far better than sex. It lasts longer. There’s nothing like it,” he declares.

The blog will update daily from now until August 30. Lawyers, aspiring law students, and lovers of all things legal drama are invited to comment on the material with their own views. For those who find themselves drawn to the thought-provoking quotes, the Your Witness book is in stores now. United States Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens has said of its contributors, “Having been in a courtroom with many of the contributors to Your Witness, I can assure readers that it would be wise to pay careful attention to what they have to say.”
