Q. If I hire a lawyer to defend me in a case, what do I do if the attorney has done little to nothing for me. Pdf 2000$
A: The work performed by an attorney is often not apparent to the client. You also need to recognize that you may not be entitled to any refund from the first attorney. The much better course of action is to meet with the attorney and give them an opportunity to let you know exactly what they have done and what they plan to do.
Q. If my accident Medical paid $25.000 towards my Hospital Bills & put a lien for $8,514.84 on My Judgement, of $25.000 l
A: You need to restate your question in terms that we can understand. A "judgment" can ONLY be rendered by a Court. If you really mean a "Judgment" of $25,000.00, you have an attorney and should discuss this with him/her. Insurance companies CANNOT Lien anything. They can and nearly always do claim subrogation interests when they pay your bills. If your insurance company paid $25,000.00, they would have a subrogation interest in the amount of $25,000.00. It is possible that the hospital sent you a bill for $25,000 and your group health insurance had an agreement to pay the hospital $8,514.84 to get the bill paid in full. Now your group health insurance carrier wants repayment of $8,514.84 and they are entitled to it but it is NOT a lien. If you hire an attorney, they cannot make you pay more than $5,676.56.Unrepresented, you owe $8,514.84. If you have further questions, you are welcome to call our office at 312-465-2914 without cost or obligation.
Q. I believe someone called the police on me but none have shown up yet.
A: The important thing here is that you recognize that your behavior was ill-considered and could well have ended in your arrest/and or loss of your driving privileges. Let it be a lesson learned. Wherever you are, stay there for the evening. No officer is going to issue a ticket for behavior that he or she does not witness, personally. Remember the way you felt prior to receiving this response when a similar situation may next present itself. Good luck and stay safe.
