    Would you have used an attorney in the past few years
    for ANYTHING if someone ELSE would have paid
    ALL or PART of the attorney bill FOR you?

      No, attorney fees are not affordable.
      Yes to your second question, depending on the attorney and the reasoning behind someone else paying the fee.

        In the past few years I have seriously needed one, and could not afford one, and thus was helpless to fight against the wrong doing.

        The fees may have been high but in-line for the services needed, but the real problem was no Attorney I contacted would make a decient arrangement with me, so I could pay them, and thus have the services.

        And No, I will pay my own way, dont whant somewone else to pay the attorney for me. That never works out well.

          Yes I would have, I don’t feel they earn the kind of money they make...I have used them for divorce contracts to sue a bad contractor and to get custody of my kids and to tell you the truth most of the time it was a waste of my money

            No! I am not a child in need of representation.  If anyone makes claims or charges against me then I represent myself.

            I just got an $1800.00 settlement from the last person who filed a claim against me.  That is right they filed the claim and the court ordered them to pay me.

            That was last Thursday!

          The reason I am asking the second question dotchman and Brenda is Would you be interested in hearing about a "legal" IDEA

          that could help you AVOID LOSING:

          your JOB or BUSINESS and/or your HOME,

          your continued access to healthcare, your reputation, your freedom,

          and your LIFE SAVINGS?

            Hallelujah!  Someone who's gonna throw out half of Congress and the President and all his Cabinet!   Woohoo!  tongue

            haha
            Tell ya what....I'll check out the info when I get time. But I doubt that citizens who have already lost all those things you mentioned can afford to respond to the offer...

          When I need an attorney, I use an attorney.  When I was a student I used a free law clinic very effectively to contest the actions of a huge insurance company (and won); now I am a professional I hire the best one I can afford. Attorneys are professionals, so someone has to pay them. If you don't have the money you can use subsidized or fee services to get the basic support you might need to learn how to represent yourself.
