In practice, between 33-40% in my experience, but here is the official information from the Florida Bar. http://www.floridabar.org/tfb/TFBConsum.nsf/48e76203493b82ad852567090070c9b9/e4c9f30ff65a77c985256b2f006c6224?OpenDocument

I think you should give an estimate based on the condition of each trailer or just charge a flat rate per hour.

If your lease is not up and you are not in arrears you should be safe. If things get worse see a lawyer.

Yes, but the gratuity can be disputed by the customer. Ultimately, if a customer does not agree to the restaurant's terms, they simply should not eat there.

I would consider the lawyers qualifications, price they charge for their service, what area they specialize in, and where he/she is located compared to you.

Lawyers generall charge by the hour and the cost varies with each lawyer. Most of the larger, well-known firms could charge upwards of $200 an hour for services from a partner and slightly less for associates. You should look around before committing to any one firm.

Your first question should not be who is cheaper but who would represent your legal interests best.

Do you know what your lawyer should be doing on your behalf? ... If you have hired a lawyer before and he did a good job for you, ... If your former lawyer does not handle car accident cases, ask her which lawyer she would recommend. .... If you are definitely going to hire a lawyer to represent you, hire him early ...

When hiring a lawyer, sometimes people are so stressed out they will hire the first lawyer they see. They may hear about a lawyer in a radio ad or see an online website and think they need a lawyer as soon as possible. The truth is it can be a very wise choice to spend a couple days researching lawyers, before committing to a single one. By researching lawyers, a person can figure out what the lawyer fees are that a law firm or lawyer may have. This is one of the most important things to know before hiring an attorney to work on one's case. Attorney fees can often be astronomical without a person even realizing it. Sometimes, lawyers bill by the hour and charge hundreds of dollars. Some lawyers charge up to five hundred dollars for an hour's worth of work. It can be incredibly expensive to hire a lawyer, and a person should know it is the right investment before jumping in and signing any sort of contract. Sometimes, a lawyer may only charge a flat rate for a service. Finding an attorney that charges only a flat rate can be a wise choice for any person. A person may only need a simple transaction completed by a lawyer, such as the closing on a home. A lawyer may simply charge a low fee for doing such a transaction, rather than charge a client astronomical hourly fees. It can be wise to research which lawyers in a community charge only flat rates, as opposed to lawyers that may charge hourly fees. Even better, sometimes lawyers only charge a fee if one's case is won in court. If a person fails to win his or her case in court, then a lawyer may not charge anything to the person. However, if a person does win his or her case in court, a person should still know what percentage of the winnings a lawyer will take. A lawyer may end up taking a huge portion of the winnings in a case, so it might not be worth it to have a particular lawyer work on a case. A person may be able to find an attorney that charges fees by an hourly basis and does not take a huge chunk of money from a case that is won. Overall, researching lawyer fees is critical for any person looking to hire a lawyer.

We think you are referring to Jeb Bush. He was not the mayor though. He was the governor of Florida from 1999-2007. He is the brother of former president George W. Bush. Also, it should be noted that a mayor is usually in charge of a city or a town. A governor is in charge of a state.

If you are planning to file a bankruptcy, you should find an experienced, competent bankruptcy lawyer if you want to succeed. Filing a bankruptcy is a huge decision, but it can help you lift the burden of financial debt from your shoulders. When you meet with a bankruptcy lawyer, you should ask the following questions. Ask your bankruptcy lawyer if you should file a bankruptcy and find out what options you have. A good bankruptcy lawyer can help you decide if you should file a Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 bankruptcy. You should also find out what the negative effects and benefits are for filing a bankruptcy. You should find out who will be handling your case. Sometimes the person you meet or speak with is the not the person that handles bankruptcy cases. It would be a good idea for you to talk with the person who is handling your case to discuss your concerns. If you do not feel comfortable with the person who is handling your case, you should find a new bankruptcy lawyer. You should also find out if the bankruptcy lawyer is experienced. Find out how many years he has been handling bankruptcy cases. You should only hire an experienced bankruptcy lawyer to represent your case. When you are shopping around for bankruptcy lawyers, find out how much they charge for their services. Some bankruptcy lawyers charge a flat fee and others charge an hourly rate. Also, you should find out if there are any additional costs for using their services. Compare rates with several lawyers before you choose one to represent you. When you are comparing bankruptcy lawyers, you should also find out what the process involves, what they will need from you, and how long the whole process will take before you find out if your case is approved. Before you meet with a bankruptcy lawyer, jot down any other questions or concerns that you have. That way, you will be able to make an informed decision.

The process one should use when selecting a military divorce lawyer is contacting any popular lawyer firm and asking them to refer you to a military divorce lawyer.
