You apparently know wrong. Attorneys only agree to this payment scheme, called working on "contingency", when a person is suing either a large company that has the money/assets/insurance to collect a judgment against or a person with insurance that will have to pay any judgments won(like in an auto accident) in addition to the case being a guaranteed slam dunk win. This goes back to what I said earlier, collectibility of judgments is equally important as the actual case you have. No attorney will work on contingency when the plaintiff is suing a deadbeat with no assets to collect a judgment against.Originally Posted by daiseyo;3772030;
Again, you admit this is a CRIMINAL matter, yet you are calling for a CIVIL solution. The CRIMINAL matter has already been resolved by the State of New Jersey. Unless Snookie has a demonstratable material loss, there is absolutely no reason for her to sue. And even then, it still makes no sense to sue unless there is a means to collect. It is clear many here do not have a clear understanding of what the true purpose of criminal and civil courts are, how they work, or how one actually goes about hiring an attorney and determining if there is cause to sue.
