Understanding the Terms Lawyer, Attorney & Esquire

Injury lawyer Michael Ehline of Ehline Law Firm. Ok. This distinction is a question few people don’t ask since they seem to mean the same thing. But are they? Most people think it’s the same. But some differences could affect your interactions with the courts. Many people, including the editors over at Wikipedia, use the terms attorney and lawyer as if they were the same. But like most legal terms, they are not interchangeable. Because of this, I wanted to explain the slight differences for the technically minded. What is An Attorney? A person learned in the law; as an attorney,...

What Is The California Statute Of Limitations For Filing My Case?

The word “limitations.” U.S. Federal And California State Laws Civil statutes of limitations were enacted into law to limit a civil plaintiff’s time to commence their lawsuit. Similar statutes of limitations apply to limit criminal prosecutions of defendants (no statute of limitations for murder). Lawmakers conceived and passed these “statutes of limitations” deadlines so the parties can avoid injustice. The reasoning is that witnesses can disappear, die, or their memories can fade, evidence can be lost, and the plaintiff’s delaying a case can hang over a...

When Can A Lawyer Refuse to Take a Case?

Financial and Ethical Complaints after Medical Harm Los Angeles catastrophe meter. What happens when a loved one needs urgent surgery or medical care after an accident?

How To Make Moral Decisions as a Personal Injury Attorney

Rodeo Drive. Most of us have seen the movie Rainmaker with Danny DeVito. If not, I included a scene that comes to mind when many people attempt to describe their vision of the venerable negligence attorney. (See below) Of course, most of us have undoubtedly heard the ad hominem jokes and slurs about personal injury lawyers. Ambulance Chaser? Many pundits call us ambulance chasers, thieves with suits on, and so forth. You name it; if it’s derogatory, it has probably been attributed to the infamous “PI” lawyer at some point in time. As you can see above, the new attorney,...

Who is Amy Coney Barrett? Will She Be Confirmed?

An Established Jurist Who Upholds The Constitution May Be In Store For Us? With all of the discussion over the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one element has been lacking from media coverage on the Supreme Court. There is a distinctly human element in between all of the debates. The battle isn’t really over the qualifications. The left wants a Marxist leaning justice who will outlaw private ownership of firearms. The right wants to enjoy the stability of a purist justice who will uphold the original intent of the Unanimous Declaration and Constitution. So it’s a fight over the composition...

Clarence Darrow as an American Icon

Clarence Darrow is perhaps the most famous lawyer in American history. Featured in film, books, television, and popular culture, his visage still affects us today. Furthermore, Darrow is a figure known for accomplishments large and small. Some are well known– as we’ll discuss– while others perhaps should be. In many ways, Americans’ perceptions of Darrow come to us through the so-called “Scopes Monkey Trial.” The famous 1925 Tennessee case about the teaching of evolution in public schools remains seared into public memory. Darrow not only argued the case...

Difference Between Injury and General Practice Lawyers?

What are the Different Types of Attorneys? Understanding Why Choice Of Lawyer Matters For Your Type Of Case. In law school, or while reading the law as an extern the same classes/subjects are studied by all prospective lawyers.

So, in general, most licensed practitioners are masters of the basics. (“Jack...

What is Difference Between Handling and Referral Attorneys?

Knowing the difference between a referral attorney and a handling attorney is essential. And four main ways exist to tell the difference. The referral lawyer is a lawyer that remains outside your lead counsel. Generally, the litigator or trial attorney advances litigation. A referral lawyer can play various roles, from rainmaking, getting the client’s contact information. Of interest here is that the duties of litigation get passed to another lawyer. So if the referral attorney plays a secondary role, they might gather records. Or they help deal with client meetings to free the leading...
