Military Compensation: Hire A Legal Eagle

Of all the government services, military service is one of the toughest and also exciting for the adventure seekers. However, because of the sensitivity of job that mainly centers on protecting the country from its external and sometimes internal enemies, military service is governed by laws that are designed exclusively for them. Unlike other civilian services, Military services is disciplined and like to deal with any issue related to it by its own established laws. Therefore getting a Military Compensation by military service men from the government is very tough if it is not listed in their law book.

Although the military service men are often covered by Military Compensation if they meet an accident or are injured while on-duty,, but you must remember that once the man in service is injured he becomes redundant for the force and is made to quit the service. If one is injured during action, the government makes payment that is due to him but will it be enough to cover up his lifetime medical expense and also his livelihood.

If the Military Compensation is not adequate, a military man can seek the help of the military compensation lawyer to help him get what is due to him. A military compensation lawyer is familiar with the laws that govern compensation both in the civil as well as military circles. As getting through the tight and often strict hierarchy is often very frustrating and tough for an ordinary military man, a lawyer can make such situation easier by drafting a legally bound letter representing a compensation plea that cannot be ignored.

Military Compensation lawyer invokes the law of the land to get what is due to a military man as compensation if he is rendered physically incapable of remaining in his service. If a military man suffers from some illness that affects his physical/mental health and makes him incapable of performing the often tough duties, the authority might simply dismissed him from the service without making any additional payment in way of compensation. The lawyer will fight for the soldier’s right and often cites the law book to get the compensation for his client.

However also remember that a Military Compensation lawyer or a compensation lawyer will always negotiate with the concerned authority for getting compensation for his client. Citing various clauses of the laws, the compensation lawyer makes successful legal submission from the authority and often is successful. But if the authority refuses to listen to the plea of the lawyer, you will have to take it to the next step-that is the court of law.

If your Military Compensation case enter the court’s premises, you compensation lawyer might not be the answer for fighting the case. You might have to hire a prosecuting lawyer who will present your case effectively in the court of law for you. Sometimes even the compensation lawyer might take up the case, but if he doesn’t you better hire a prosecuting lawyer to do your job.

Legal Eagles: Television’s Top Lawyers

The courtroom drama is a time-honored TV genre with origins reaching back to the 1940s. The legal world is a natural fit for the TV screen. The stakes are high-even life or death; persuasion is as much about charisma as evidence, and the monologue is king. Here’s a list of the top three legal eagles in the history of television.

Ally McBeal

Ally McBeal had a short but sweet five year run from 1997 to 2002. Calist Flockhart played the eponymous main character, a quirky and quixotic young attorney at the Boston firm of Cage & Fish. The show really employs the legal profession as a backdrop more than a plot device, as most of the drama centers around the turbulent and tempestuous, interpersonal relationships at the firm. The lawyers of Cage & Fish are eccentric, flirtatious, and even a little libertine (looking at you, Fish). Their professional exploits are often used to juxtapose their personal misadventures. Some critics derided the show for being unrealistic and over-relying on slapstick gags. The character of Ally McBeal specifically drew criticism from a feminist perspective for the way it portrayed professional women. But while Ally could be flighty and emotionally volatile, she was also a caring friend and an imaginative soul. For a profession that is too often cast as calculating and heartless, Ally McBeal offered a human side.

Jack McCoy

It’s hard to pick just one standout from all the great lawyers that have been on Law & Order over the years. The show was pretty much the standard bearer for both cop shows and courtroom dramas for two decades. It also spawned a half dozen spin-offs, and even a few video games. It ended its run in 2010 but is still syndicated on multiple channels, every day of the week, all over the world. For 16 of the show’s 20 seasons, Sam Waterston played Jack McCoy of the Manhattan District Attorney’s office. Jack McCoy had a brilliant legal mind, but it was his dogged pursuit of justice (though not always according to the letter of the law) that drove his success. Waterston has appeared in the second most episodes of any Law & Order cast member (behind only S. Epatha Merkerson). His performance on the show even earned him the status of “Living Landmark” from the New York Landmarks Conservancy.

Perry Mason

The grand-daddy of them all, Perry Mason, is an iconic American television show. It might not have invented the courtroom drama, but it perfected it. Raymond Burr played the title character, a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney who sparred with the District Attorney’s office on behalf of accused men and women. It helped that almost all of his clients were innocent, as Mason often dramatically proved by revealing the true guilty party. Burr played the role of the infamous litigator for nine seasons and then 26 additional made-for-TV movies. Along the way, he inspired a generation of lawyers to test their mental and moral mettle in the courtroom.

The Lawyer Business Coach: Humor Means Health! Are Lawyers ‘Legal Eagles’ Or ‘Legal Beagles’?

Yes, I’m a lawyer. Please don’t hold it against me. Many people don’t like lawyers. They say they seldom return phone calls. Others complain that they charge too much money. Many say they don’t speak plain English, and instead speak what is sometimes called ‘legal gobbledegook.’ Some even think lawyers are all crooks.

Many people think lawyers should be eliminated altogether. But America loves lawyers. We have more lawyers, per capita here, than any other nation in the world. When I passed the bar and started law practice, the registration number I was assigned was 2,386. That’s how many lawyers there were in Colorado, USA. If I were to tell you how many Colorado lawyers there are today you wouldn’t believe me and you would think I was lying. By the way, you do know how to tell if a lawyer is lying don’t you? If his mouth is moving.

Again, many people think lawyers should be eliminated altogether. Shakespeare, in Hamlet, has the line, “The first order of business should be to kill all the lawyers.” Heaven forbid! Pogo, our cartoon philosopher friend, gave us an alternative: “Let’s just shorten their legal pads.” This sounds like a much more realistic idea to me. Doesn’t it to you too?

I write different types of articles: business, spiritual, and human development. I call myself ‘The Lawyer Business Coach,’ and ‘The Gospel Coach.’ Most people can understand me writing law-business articles. But many can’t understand me writing spiritual articles. I’ve had people say, “How can you be a lawyer, and a Christian too? Isn’t that a contradiction in terms?”

At a funeral service the minister said, “Here lies a lawyer, and a good Christian man.” One fellow asked the minister: “Did they bury two men in the same grave?” But, yes, I do write spiritual articles. My focus is living daily life in the power of the finished work of the gospel of Jesus.

My purpose in these humor articles is simply to give you a greater fondness for us lawyers. Maybe just a greater tolerance for us? Take your pick. Don’t forget to hug your lawyer today. On second thought, maybe that’s not such a good idea. Ignore that counsel.

Remember, lawyers are people too. Well, at least most of us. And at least most of the time. Whichever is greater. Or least. Or perhaps both.

Those Legal EAGLES (or is that ‘BEAGLES’?)

Lawyers are the legal eagles of society! We are the custodians of liberty!! We are the protectors of the people!!! We are the stalwarts of justice!!!! We are the upholders of the Constitution!!!!! And if you believe this, then I also have some ocean-front property in Denver, Colorado I want to sell you too.

We all know what an eagle is. It’s a large, gorgeous, strong bird that is the symbol of America herself. We lawyers like to consider ourselves legal eagles. We also all know what beagles are. It is defined as a dog who is a small hound, with a smooth, lavish coat, short legs and drooping ears. They also have a wide throat, and produce a deep growl or fierce bark. This describes a lot of lawyers I know.

It’s Hard For Lawyers To Stay Motivated

It’s especially hard for us lawyers to stay motivated because of all the negative lawyer jokes we hear all the time. I wish people would go back to Pollock jokes. But then I’m not so sure about this either, because Sir Frederick Pollock was a famous English lawyer barrister, and jurist.

I feed myself this stuff because it’s so hard for us lawyers to stay motivated. That is, unless we are suing someone. Why? Because we lawyers are the most enthusiastically negative people in the world. But it’s not without cause.

In defense of lawyers (most of whom need a lot of defense), do you have any idea how difficult it is to stay motivated, enthusiastic, or ‘up’ when you face one negative person or situation after another, hour after hour, all day long?

Law offices are negative, because they consist of lawyers. Also, a lawyers’ secretary is often down in the bumps because of her boss. After all, how would you feel if you were a legal secretary and you were ready to leave work for the day. You pop your head into your bosses’ office and say, “Hey boss, have a good day!” He snarls back at you: “Don’t tell ME what to do!”

That’s how it is in most lawyers’ offices. Wouldn’t this negative atmosphere rub off on you too if you had to work in it constantly?

Of course, clients are usually negative because of the things they are facing – criminal matters, traffic violations, divorces, bankruptcies, corporate problems, contract breeches, and many, many other types of things. When you’re a lawyer, you must handle those negative clients – and then fight with other lawyers and judges on top of that.

At the end of the case you often have to fight your client to collect your fee. Especially if you lose! What a business. It is no wonder lawyers are negative people.

Practicing law is a lot like practicing prostitution. In both cases, the value of services rendered drastically declines – once those services have been performed. It’s because clients don’t like to pay once services have been performed that makes many lawyers collect their fees in advance.
