Legal Answers
Q. If a Lawyer does a terrible job, and I appeal and win, do I have to pay that lawyer full fees or can I arrange something
A: It sounds like you had a personal injury case and hired a personal injury law firm that was probably charging you on a contingent fee basis. You won the case but were disappointed with the award. The award can be based on a number of issues, so its impossible to judge, from the award, whether the firm performed poorly or not. (You mention the firm, they are a reputable Virginia personal injury firm.).. The answer to your question really lies in the contract you signed but, under usual circumstances yes, you will owe them their fee at least for the amount they got the court to award you at trial.If you can secure a higher settlement you probably don't owe them 1/3 for the extra you receive. Hope this makes sense. good luck to you. ... Read More
Q. Can I ask the insurance co to settle myself without a lawyer? Also do I have to fill out interrogatories with no lawyer?
A: You have the right to represent yourself. The fact that you have not been able to find an attorney has nothing to do with their "bravery" but may be an indication that your case is weak. You can try to negotiate the case yourself, sure.
Q. Can I have an out of state attorney for a car accident?
A: yes, sure, you should get right attorney for your case, no matter where you live. If you find an attorney not licensed in VA that attorney may need to associate with VA counsel, but you have the right to look anywhere.
