Not r/legaladvice, but r/exmormon for legal advice. I remember the time someone mentioned that they were preparing to get divorced, but they didn`t have enough money to keep a lawyer for the proceedings. Someone on the subway advised them to consult with all the best divorce lawyers in the area. The reasoning was that if the lawyer consulted one party in a case, he was obliged not to be able to represent the other party. They also did not want the spouse to have access to a lawyer. In a thread on the legality of physical attacks on people who don`t wear masks in public (big surprise, it`s always an attack), the general consensus was: “Feeling strong enough for something means laws don`t matter.” I saw this advice in two and a half men, not the best place to get advice I always thought it was crazy for people to take advice from strangers on the internet. You could literally talk to a 15-year-old lmao. In this blog, I`ve compiled the 10 worst pieces of advice I`ve heard over the years. Unfortunately, this article “Top 50 worst legal advice… ” call yourself.
However, I am already accused by my employees of making my blogs way too long. So there you have it: 1) “START A WOUND DIARY” – WRONG! It sounds innocent enough, but in practice it`s a terrible idea. No one, and I mean no one who gives this advice, has any idea of human nature or the practice of the assault trial. The only half-decent advice I`ve ever seen from this submarine was the type of lawyer to look for. It`s safer to assume that everyone is a policeman or a chestnut. Objection! Similar to WebMD, not everyone should use Internet forums for legal equivalent. If you need legal representation, raise a few pennies and get a few, or do the only research you should find free legal help. Too many people trust people they will never see for life matters that are too important.
From time to time, some lawyers look to see what is launched, and most are problematic. Wow, it still happens. I hired a lawyer to draft an objection document to his fee request. We had a hearing. The judge dismissed his murder. He said she was not prejudiced because she was able to find a good lawyer. He reprimanded me for attempting this stunt, but he also reprimanded his lawyer for filing a motion that the judge called “unfounded” and nothing more than a transparent attempt to make me look bad. We reached a divorce agreement on custody and a little after what we both agreed.
I now have a great relationship with my children and I even have a good co-parenting relationship with my ex-wife. I`m in a very different and much better place now than I was when I did this stupid and horrible thing. I would no longer accept legal advice from the Internet and I would not take advice from r/exmormon. I am sorry for what I did and even for having the opportunity to want another person. You may be curious to know how I know what bad advice is given by my colleagues. The answer is simple. When injured clients fire these people and hire us, these clients tell me the advice their last lawyer gave them. After hearing the same bad advice for years, I started keeping a list of the most terrible advice I`ve heard. However, people had a lot of practical advice. Things like: “Under no circumstances should you get on the plane”, “talk to a teacher as soon as possible”, “If you can`t avoid going to the airport, plug in something that will earn you a private interview with security personnel and tell them that you are a victim of human trafficking”, etc.
Again, I don`t remember all the details, and maybe not all the advice was helpful. But some of them were things the girl probably needed to read. 3) “SECRETLY RECORD THE INSURANCE DOCTOR`S EXAMINATION” – FALSE. FALSE! It is even worse than the testimonies. Secret microphone in the hope that the insurance doctor will say something openly quoting and possibly offensive is a long way. The three most obvious problems with this advice are: I can assure you that this stupid advice, since it became fashionable, has never achieved its goal. On the contrary, it eliminates even the slightest possibility that the insurance doctor can side with you. That`s terrible advice. “And if you`re feeling a little more assertive — or when advice is offered, even if there`s no problem from your perspective: `I understand you`re trying to help, but I`m comfortable with what I`m doing right now, and it would mean a lot to me if you could respect that.` After 2 minutes of searching, I found a case of appeal directly from the competent court that says: “Employers cannot enforce this contractual clause because it is contrary to public policy.” This means that all other tips in the thread were generally correct, but 100% wrong for the PO.
Since moving to Los Angeles, I`ve continually reviewed the work of other “cannabis lawyers” from all over California who have worked for their clients under Proposition 215, and I have to say that far too much of what I`ve seen has bothered me when it comes to business creation, financing, and business structures. What lies beneath the prop. 215 (which is a terrible law if you want to be a real cannabis company) is that many self-proclaimed industry attorneys inside and outside of California have given up any appearance of helping their clients comply with corporate law, federal and state tax laws, and various basic transaction laws and standards. All this is now being brought to light because a lot of accessories. 215 for-profit “collective” enterprises to obtain a licence under the Medical and Adult Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (“MAUCRSA”) and/or to amalgamate their partnership into a for-profit entity for the same reason. Unfortunately, this type of transition will be legally impossible because these collective societies were originally structured (combined with their non-compliance with corporate laws), or it will be full of responsibilities due to simple poor legal advice. Some lawyers give advice that they have developed and refined over the years. Others give advice for personal injury simply because another lawyer told them to give such advice at some point in the past.
This kind of baseless and often harmful advice, conveyed by some lawyers as “legal advice”, will be the focus of this article. No one had any particularly helpful legal advice as it turned out that leaving the country with your minor/dependent child with a good coverage history isn`t really illegal, and their few preventative legal options would have required more money and freedom than them. Yawn. Watch it again and look at the comments. Liberals are so complacent that something they don`t like creeps in (the First Amendment to protect hate speech, for example), and then they stumble upon themselves and assert rights and legal principles that don`t exist. Below is my list of the five worst pieces of legal advice our California attorneys have given to Prop. 215 collectives here in the Golden State. On the other hand, if these people regularly give you unwanted advice, “it`s really important to set boundaries to stay calm, because it can be frustrating,” Vicki said. “When people with low self-esteem and the need to be in a higher role are often confronted with an attitude of anger, they feel threatened and can verbally and emotionally lash out, making the situation worse.” 6) “DEAL WITH SPECIAL DOCTORS WHO ARE PARTICULARLY FRIENDLY TO YOUR LAWYER” – WRONG! Impressive. Worst advice of all. These types of doctors (friends of plaintiffs` lawyers and their clients) are exactly the kind of doctors you should avoid in order to prove and maintain the legitimacy of your infringement claim.
When you start seeing the usual suspect doctor, the insurance company will immediately know that your lawyer has sent you to a “doc in the box” and the value of your case drops. That`s bad advice. 9) “ENCOURAGE YOUR SPOUSE TO ASSERT HIS OR HER OWN CLAIM FOR LOSS OF SPOUSAL SUPPORT” – FALSE! Shockingly bad advice. If the insurance clerk is already “doubtful” in your case, add a claim: “Wilma wants compensation because Fred has lost stamina in the bag due to his sprained back caused by his rear-end collision.” 7) “STAY AWAY FROM WORK AS LONG AS POSSIBLE” – FALSE! Insurance lawyers like nothing more than to argue that an injury victim is a forger and even worse a simulator. Parking it on your couch waiting for the big paycheck to arrive when you could be working, even on limited or part-time duty, could guarantee that a check never comes. This is really terrible advice. I`m inclined to note that it`s common on reddit to have this weird and psychotic power fantasy where you can respond to minor rudeness with immoderate and overwhelming violence and be applauded for it.
