Q: 

If a Co-Trustee in a Trust Provides power of attorney, Can I Represent the Trust?

A:  If by ‘represent’ you mean in court or in a lawsuit, the answer is no. A non-lawyer cannot represent a separate legal entity (in this case, a Trust) in any legal proceeding. And an executed power of attorney document would have no bearing on this restriction. To find a local attorney for FREE to represent the Trust in a court proceeding, visit Standard Legal’s attorney Find page. If you are named in a lawsuit or court matter in an individual capacity, then you can represent yourself; that is the very definition of pro se law. To learn more about creating valid Trust and

Q: 

in what way is the h.a more powerful than the Asian organizations?

A:  You only asked my opinion in the other thread, and so this is it. Globally, the Hell''s Angels have a piece of the pie criminally, whereas the Triads may have an influence in a number of Countries. When was the last time that you heard of a Triad being arrested in Iceland, Denmark, Brazil, Australia? H.A. doesn''t have any preference over ethnicity whereas, in my experience, the Triads are only effective in their own Asian community. You mentioned that you thought that the H.A. had been impacted by the last big roundup....it was, but you''re kidding yourself if you think that that vacuum hasn''t been filled gradually by more soldiers....

Q: 

How much does a compensation attorney make?

A:  You can become rich as an attorney or just get by. It depends on what you do. I work as a district attorney (prosecutor) and I do not get paid all that well. It is OK, since I like the job, but with my large student loans, not financially rewarding. I would never become a lawyer (or anything for that matter) just for the financial rewards. You should also know there is a glut in the lawyer market right now, especially with the economy being so poor. Lots of recent graduates are stuck with large loans and no jobs. Hopefully things will improve. Some lawyers work for wages and some are self-employed and some work for a

Q: 

Mulling Over How Finding a Great attorney Might Be Very Important

A:  There are a number of concepts related to finding a great attorney that should be at least understood by those who may find themselves needing a skilled legal advocate because of something that may end up in court. Additionally, anybody who''s ever found themselves having to face a criminal justice matter should know how to locate and then take on the services of a great attorney, for their own good. In the law, there''s a quite-popular saying that goes ''Those who choose to represent themselves in a court of law will soon enough find themselves representing a fool.'' There''s a great deal of truth to that saying, because anybody who thinks they''re smart enough to represent themselves in a...

Q: 

Brawny & Bounty in a legal battle over paper towel patterns. does anyone know - or care - what the patterns are? Perspective anyone?

A:  At issue is what is known as trade dress, which refers not only to ''a product''s physical appearance, including its size, shape, color, design, and texture,'' but also to ''the manner in which a product is packaged, wrapped, labeled, presented, promoted, or advertised, including the use of distinctive graphics, configurations, and marketing strategies.'' Bounty v. Brawny is not only about a company defending its intellectual property in the form of trade dress, it''s also about consumer expectations when selecting certain products. As a consumer, you often pay hugely for that trade-dress distinction. Suppose you want to buy a Rolex. You''ve been salivating over the prospect for a long time. You do your research and finally plunk your money down on- line. You even get it for a great...

Q: 

giving a patent attorney a % of ownership

A:  A patent attorney who stole your idea would be in danger of being disbarred, losing the right to practice before the US Patent & Trademark Office, and subject to civil sanctions.  Also, no matter how great your idea is, I?m sure that a significant amount of work and investment will be required to  generate income from the idea.  The patent attorney would have to be convinced that stealing your idea is worth taking all those risks and probably quitting his or her ?day job? to pursue your idea.   In my opinion, there is negligible risk in discussing your idea with a patent attorney.  A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) would provide no additional protection for you.  If the

Q: 

does the Biological Father have any Rights if he’s never met his Child or Paid Child Support?

A:  “If his name is on the birth certificate, does the biological father of my son have legal paternity if we were never married? I was a single mother when I gave birth to my son in 1996. Even though the biological father was not present at birth, I was able to file the birth certificate (in California) with the name of the biological father listed as the father on the certificate. I am now married to another man who would like to adopt my son. I would also like to secure a passport for my son and passport applications list that both parents need to file for the passport. My son is now 10 years old and his biological father has never met my son nor paid child support. Is it safe to say that I have sole and legal custody of my son? Will I have to contact the...

Q: 

I want to work in a law firm but I don''t have a degree.?

A:  If you want to be competive in today''s tough job market, you need a degree. If you want job security in the field of law, you need a degree. If you want to stay competitive in this vocational field, you will need to continue to take legal educational classes - it won''t ever stop. Choosing a career is one of life''s most important decisions. The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don''t expect the situation to improve in the coming years..... Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please...
