nature of the case, can't ask anyone in my school  :-\ :-X  But you've given me an idea,  thanks

If you go to school in the area where you were injured, ask a torts professor. Normally the profs have a good idea of good attorneys that are practicing in their area of expertise. Or someone else in the legal profession that you know that might be trustworthy and might know of someone.

Random question but how do u find a good (free, one of those lawyers that only gets paid if you win) civil attorney-  personal injury?  I may be involved in a lawsuit shortly (as a P).

For civ pro?  It was a good book--just finished it.  I'm mad that they settled for that amount though.  Should've stuck to his guns especially considering how much the firm took.

Good book indeed, read it twice. Well..in hindsight we always wish we did something different, I believe the partners were ready to settle for way less than the final figure. It was still considered a huge settlement in those days. Don't even know if they actually got the money or if teh company filed bankruptcy.

yeah they were, but still.  I would have respected them more if they had negotiated their attorneys fees outside of the settlement--there seems something misleading about saying they were working probono then taking almost 1/4th of the settlement.

I felt exactly the same way, so did a lot of people I have discussed it with. We felt this way probably because we are both human, and mad at the way the whole thing went down. Asking for more could have lead to two uncertain scenarios:1) the company might have had to file bankruptcy and leave them with nothing, or 2) they will go to trial, and you can never predict the jury, worst case scenario, the jury will be mad as hell and award an unrealistic amount, thus bringing them back to scenario one above.

it could have--but I don't think 3k more would have lead to their bankruptcy.  they seem to be doing ok.  http://www.pittston.com/corporateinformation/history.html
