Half of America is Poor: This was Predicted…by Thomas Jefferson!

Yes, that’s not a typo. 200 years ago Thomas Jefferson predicted this downfall if we let the private banks run our lives.

Jefferson said:  “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.http://www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/private-banks-quotation

Half of Americans are poor, thanks to politicians giving banks the power to create our money out of thin air. Read more about it at http://rt.com/usa/news/half-poor-america-poverty-909/ . With Christmas season upon us, and half of our country barely making ends meet, let us all give one another a present that will help this country out of this horrid situation bestowed upon us: elect a president that will fix this mess we’re in. www.RonPaul2012.com

 

 

Cut legal costs, do some work yourself!

The Orange County Register NATION/WORLD

Friday, Oct. 24, 1997
Cut legal costs by doing some of the work yourself.

Maybe all you need is a lawyer to serve as a ‘coach’ on an as-needed basis. Kiplinger’s Magazine

If you have a question, write to Money Q&A, The Orange County Register, P.O. Box 11626, Santa Ana, Calif. 92711, or fax to (714) 565-3685. Please include your phone number. We publish answers every Thursday.

From divorce to bankruptcy, the number of pro se cases, in which litigants represent themselves, has surged. But are these do-it-yourselfers doing themselves justice?

Forrest “Woody” Mosten doesn’t think so. Mosten, a $425-an-hour family-law attorney in Beverly Hills, thinks pro se litigants in divorce cases tend to get less child and spousal support, miss out on financial advice about how to divvy up assets and don’t get the benefit of hearings on temporary orders such as custody.

But Mosten’s solution isn’t what you’d expect. Rather than recommend that someone hire him to take over a case, Mosten offers his services as a “legal coach” on an as-needed basis, with emphasis on helping people find ways to settle out of court.

Mosten’s clients can do as much or as little of the work as they want. In her divorce, Janet Winer gathered the financial documents and met her husband to discuss settlement options. But when she wanted guidance, she turned to Mosten. Even at $425 an hour, Winer figures she saved more than $5,000 by doing so much legwork herself.

In Rowayton, Conn., lawyer Barbara Shea operates a similar service.

“Law firms charge a lot of money for photocopying,” says Shea, whose hourly rate is $325. “But you’re perfectly capable of doing it more cheaply yourself.”

She says her coaching clients get “essence de lawyer” instead of high-priced administrative services.

Even courts are getting into the do-it-yourself act. After years of struggling with self-represented (and under-prepared) litigants, the Maricopa County (Arizona) Superior Court started a self-service center. Pro se litigants have access to a 24-hour information hot line, hundreds of instructions on how to fill them out and a list of lawyers willing to coach clients. (www.maricopa.gov/supcrt/ssc/sschome.html). The Supreme Court of Florida in Tallahassee offers similar services (www.firn.edu/supct).

Despite the trend, legal coaches are hard to find. Judge Rebecca Albrecht of the Maricopa County Superior Court suggests that you approach a lawyer and request partial representation.

“Say, ‘I want to do some things on my own, and here are other things I can’t do, and I want you to represent me on those,'” Albrecht says. “If the first lawyer (won’t) do that… go on to the next person on your list.”

Do lawyers know to practice legal procedure?

Here is the opinion of Gerry Spence, a most renowned trial lawyer, who put on trial skills seminars for lawyers based his best selling book “WITH JUSTICE FOR NONE.” Buyer Beware!

Maybe the tumor won’t be malignant. After all there can be all kinds of benign lesions in the brain. As the nurses wheel you to the operating room, your family walks beside you tearfully and you say something silly like, “When I get out of this, you’ll like me a lot more. They’re only gonna cut out the parts that made me cranky.” Then you think, oh God! That may be the last thing I’ll ever say to them. Then you’re in a room that seems very bright, cold, and smells antiseptic. You don’t recognize any of the people since they all wear masks and have become the only things on this earth. Then a man, dressed like the others, comes into the room carrying an armload of books.

“Who is that?” you ask.

“That is your surgeon.” You feel a small wave of fear. Someone is sticking a needle into your arm, and you are being hooked up to a machine.

“What do you have those books for?”

“Just a handy reference,” you hear the friendly voice of your doctor reply.

“Well, you have done one of these operations before haven’t you?” You can’t remember what he answers, but it was something that seemed unspecified. Things are getting hazy now and as you start to drift, you see your doctor looking at a full-page drawing of a human brain in color. Now, you feel true panic. You jerk upright.

“What the hell are you reading, Doctor?” One of the nurses rushes over and tries to force you down, but you fight back. “What the hell are you reading?”

“Oh, I’m just checking out a detail or two. Don’t worry.”

The doctor nods to the anesthesiologist, and suddenly things become very distant. You begin to drown in your own waves, wave after dark wave, until the bright room is dark, and the sound of your doctor’s voice has drifted away.

The doctor had gathered up six books, all the latest anatomy of the brain and on the surgical technique demanded. He began his procedure by reading aloud to the others in the operating room. As he read they handed him the necessary instruments and helped him identify the special places he must cut. He was very conscientious. Nobody accused him of not trying his best. The operation took several hours, including the Code Blue at the end, when other doctors came running into the operating room and administered their desperate lifesaving procedures that of course failed.

They say the doctor performed eight of these operations before one of his patients survived. Some critics who did not understand the problem of medical training claimed the doctor stacked up the dead and maimed like cordwood, but perhaps that is the small price we pay for good medicine. The doctor was quick to learn from his mistakes, and had a certain cavalier courage that served him well. He was able to take his early defeats in stride and to dismiss them as part of his education.

While the foregoing is merely a frightful fantasy, its parallel is a reality so far as the education and training of trial lawyers is concerned. Every year, the law schools disgorge their latest graduates. Thousands of eager, wide-eyed young men and women who finally pass the bar exam for their state are loosed upon the unsuspecting American public possessing no more experience than a surgeon who has been dissecting frogs in biology class.

Although every law school offers a course in trial practice, and while some permit their students to take part in certain clinical programs, the truth is that no law student in America receives competent training in the art of advocacy, and left to their own devices, many never acquire it let alone perfect it, in an entire career at the bar.

Failure of American Law Schools

By Ralph Warner, Publisher of NOLO PRESS (www.nolo.com)

Most Americans have little confidence in lawyers and a great deal of cynicism about our courts. For their part, lawyers and judges aren’t happy, either. When polled, 70% of American lawyers said they would not recommend that their children enter the profession. Judges, even those serving on formerly prestigious state supreme courts, are resigning in record numbers.

Why has the American legal profession so thoroughly lost its way? Although there are a number of unrelated causes, its most fundamental failures can be traced to American Law School.

Here is the opinion of Gerry Spence (www.gerryspence.com), a most renowned trial lawyer, who puts on trial skills seminars for lawyers from his best selling book, “With Justice for None”, Buyer Beware!

Every year the law schools disgorge [release] their latest graduates. Thousands of eager, wide-eyed young men and women who finally pass the Bar Exam of their state are loosed [released] upon the unsuspecting American Public. Most have no more experience than a surgeon who has been dissecting frogs in a biology class.”

“Although every law school offers a course in trial practice and some permit their students to take part in certain clinical programs, in which the student can honestly claim, he actually saw a real client and actually saw an inside of a real courtroom, no law student in America receives competent training in the art of advocacy, and left to their own devices, many never acquire it, let alone perfect it, in an entire career at the bar.”
