  • Example of Cross-Examination Gone Wrong in Custody Court

    Watch this humorous example of an actual cross-examination I did recently in a custody hearing. It's a great example of how NOT to answer cross-exam questions. Cross examination is that part of the custody trial after direct examination, where either you or your witness have told your ‘side of the story’. Your spouse’s attorney will now have the opportunity to ask you or your witness questions. This is called cross-examination. If the other attorney or other party (if they are representing themselves) are skilled in cross-examination, he or she will use questions to try to box you into yes or no answers. That is just the nature of cross-examination and it is nothing to be afraid of. When you feel the pressure of the attorney boxing you in for a yes or no answer, and even if you fee...

Those banks in turn criticized Coakley for abandoning settlement negotiations. Among the homes Coakley cites in her lawsuit is a single-family house on DeLuca Road in Milford. The lawsuit filed in Suffolk Superior Court against Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and GMAC argues the major banks used fraudulent documentation during foreclosure proceedings, including so-called "robo-signing," and illegally foreclosed on properties without holding the actual mortgages.

Watch this humorous example of an actual cross-examination I did recently in a custody hearing. It's a great example of how NOT to answer cross-exam questions. Cross examination is that part of the custody trial after direct examination, where either you or your witness have told your ‘side of the story’. Your spouse’s attorney will now have the opportunity to ask you or your witness questions. This is called cross-examination. If the other attorney or other party (if they are representing themselves) are skilled in cross-examination, he or she will use questions to try to box you into yes or no answers. That is just the nature of cross-examination and it is nothing to be afraid of. When you feel the pressure of the attorney boxing you in for a yes or no answer, and even if you feel like a yes or no answer does not give the court the whole picture or you want to explain further, you still need to go ahead and follow the judge’s order and answer yes or no. If not, the judge will order you to do so. I am going to give you a great example of a cross-examination and some sample questions. So just go with the flow because after cross you will have an opportunity to help yourself and I will explain that after the example of the cross-examination of the cross examination I recently experience in the family law courtroom. Before we go into the re-enactment I want to give you the background of the custody case. In this custody case the judge had recently ordered that my client who was the mother could relocate her 3 children to Utah. She had met someone and became engaged and they were planning to get married. After a trial the judge determined that she could move with her children to Utah. So in this hearing the only issue in debate was how much parenting time the father was going to get now that the mother was going to relocate out of state. The goal for everyone because it was in the best of the children was that the father would receive regular parenting time in spite of the fact that the mother would have primary care of the children in Utah while the father remained in Arizona. So here is the re-enactment of the custody trial where the issue was parenting time for the father: Attorney for the Mother : “So, Mr. Miller, do you agree with me that you want to see your children on a regular basis?” Mr. Miller (the father) : uhhhhhhhh…yea….uh-huh yea. Child Custody Attorney: And do you agree with me that if you are seeing them once a month that you will be seeing them on a regular basis? Mr. Miller: mmmmmmmmmmmmm……no? Attorney: So you don’t agree with me that if you see your children once per month that you WON’T be seeing them on a regular basis? Mr. Miller: (father shifting nervously in his seat) Well……uhhhhhhh…….it kinda depends. Attorney: So, Mr. Miller, let me get this straight, do you mean to tell me that if you see your children one time per month, you will not be seeing them on a regular basis? Mr. Miller: Ummmmmmmmmm….could you repeat the question? Attorney: Ok, I want you to pretend with me for a minute. Imagine that you are seeing your children one time per month. Can you do that? Mr. Miller: Yea..yea…yea…I can imagine seeing them once a month…yea…yea… Attorney: So now that you are imagining that you are seeing them once a month, do you agree with me that you are going to be seeing them regularly? Yes or No? Mr. Miller: Well only if I get credit for 108 days a year in the child support calculator. So, the cross examination went on and on like this and it became unbearable for me and the judge and even his attorney because at the end of the conversation, the father’s attorney was instructing him. “Just answer the question” So my whole point is that during cross-examination, you are going to get boxed in, you are not going to get to explain your answers. That is just the way it is. But the good news is, AFTER cross-examination there is something called rehabilitation or re-direct. And on re-direct, if you have an attorney, that attorney is going to get to ask you questions to give you the opportunity to explain the answers that you did not get to answer in cross. And if you don’t have an attorney then you are still going to get the chance to explain the things that you wanted to explain. So, the lesson is Don’t be evasive, don’t fail to make eye contact, don’t roll your eyes, don’t mumble, Just ANSWER THE QUESTION.

http://www.thepeddyberglawfirm.com The rights, relationships and conduct of the people and business entities engaged in commerce are the focus of a branch of civil law commonly referred to as commercial litigation. A commercial litigation attorney must be well-versed in many areas of the law, including: - Contracts - Collections - Bankruptcy - Fraudulent transactions - Corporate formations and operations - Real estate - Torts - Mergers and acquisitions - Finance and banking - Employment and labor law - Evaluating the Problem and Formulating a Strategy Whether it is a new business just starting operations, or an older, established business, disputes involving other companies, consumers, government agencies or suppliers can be a drain on the resources of a company. A commercial litigation attorney is usually in the best position to evaluate the matter that is in dispute and formulate a plan to resolve it as quickly and efficiently as is feasible under the circumstances. Through training, education and experience, a commercial litigation attorney knows that litigation might not be the most efficient method for resolving a commercial dispute. Negotiation, mediation and arbitration are alternative methods of dispute resolution that can cut the time and expense usually associated with the litigation process. Depending upon the circumstances surrounding the matter in dispute, a skilled (and experienced) litigation attorney is prepared to take the case to trial in front of a judge or jury if other methods of resolving the dispute fail. Avoiding Disputes A commercial litigation attorney can help a business to avoid conflicts through a review of a company’s policies, procedures, documents and practices. Frequently, a business that is plagued by conflicts involving employees might benefit from having an attorney prepare employment agreements and manuals containing rules, practices, and procedures for employees. Written agreements and rules help to avoid areas of conflict while, at the same time, providing business owners with documentary evidence to use in court if a dispute arises that cannot be resolved without litigation. Diverse Areas of Commercial Litigation Commercial litigation can encompass a wide-ranging and diverse variety of issues and business practices that are common in today’s world of international commerce. Some areas in which attorneys can help a business include: - Structuring financing and agreements for the acquisition of buildings and equipment - Overseeing mergers and acquisitions from their early stages through conclusion - Developing policies and procedures involving employees - Helping the company to remain in compliance with government regulatory agencies The Peddy Berg Law Firm, PLLC 8655 E.

There is an African saying that "If the lion does not tell his story, the hunter will." It doesn't take long as an estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigator for Los Angeles clients to see that estate wrongdoers peddle similar stories to justify their actions. And, if these fanciful stories are not challenged the stories won't be refuted. So how do estate or trust asset hunters engaged in wrongdoing tell their stories? They usually sound something like this: "My sister couldn't give a hoot about our dad. Our mom died over ten years ago and I've been the one to take care of dad for the last five years. It's lucky that I don't have a job, because if I did I wouldn't have been able to help him. He wanted me to live with him and his mind was clear as a bell. He might forget something once in a while, but I can tell you that he knew what he wanted. He didn't want to talk to my sister, so I cut her off from the phone, and whenever she did see him, I stayed with him so she wouldn't upset him or take his money. Dad wanted me to stay in the house and to have money to live on. So we put his money in joint accounts for us because he trusted me that I would take care of the bills. He gave me the house, and he didn't want my sister or her delinquent kids to have anything. My sister wouldn't even visit him or drive the 300 miles from San Jose to LA to be with him." OK - does this story sound at all familiar? I hear lots of stories, so I must say I've heard different versions of this one dozens of times. Now if the lion doesn't tell her story, the hunter's story of care and heroics will prevail. And the results of the hunter's story - the sister is cut out of the will or trust and the brother takes everything. We represent the lion far more than the hunter. And what is the lion's common story? "My brother hasn't worked in 20 years. I live in San Jose with my three children. We moved to San Jose over 20 years ago because of my husband's job. My parents continued to live in LA. We regularly visited my parents, and I spoke with my mom and my dad at least three or so days a week by telephone. When my mom died, I asked my dad to come live with us. He was so lonely, and I knew that we could care for him. He thought about it, but he didn't want to leave his home and friends in LA. He also felt responsible for my brother. My brother is an alcoholic, and my dad and my mom when she was alive had to bail him out of many problems... Read more:

Paul Brampton, partner and construction and engineering solicitor at IBB Solicitors, discusses construction and engineering dispute resolution. For more information on construction law matters visit: http://www.ibblaw.co.uk/service/construction-and-engineering Transcript: Q. Should a client engage a specialist construction and engineering lawyer to resolve construction and engineering disputes? A. Our advice is that clients should not only use a specialist construction and engineering lawyer to help them resolve disputes, but a specialist should be engaged at an early stage to help them to avoid disputes. i. A specialist will be familiar with the numerous forms of construction contract deployed in the construction and engineering industries, and the interplay between the various contracts on any given project; ii. They will be familiar with the complexities of the construction and engineering processes and the types of document generated by building projects; iii. They will also be familiar with the special rules that apply to construction and engineering disputes, and the different types of dispute resolution methods available; iv. They will be able to identify the types of expert to engage and when to bring them on board; and v. More likely than not, they will have seen similar disputes in the past; or they will have the specialist toolbox to come up with legal solutions to novel problems. On occasion we find ourselves acting opposite general litigators. They may be fantastic lawyers but due to a lack of practical experience they will often struggle to get to grips with construction contracts and the methods commonly deployed to resolve construction and engineering disputes. Q. What is the client's role in resolving construction and engineering disputes? A. The client's role is really of paramount importance. For the best possible outcome there needs to be: i. Trust between the client and the lawyer; and ii. Both the client and the lawyer need to foster a collaborative relationship Before the matter even comes to litigation factors such as: i. The care taken by the client in operating its contracts; and ii. The quality of record keeping by the client This can be the difference between a good outcome and an unsatisfactory outcome. Q. Is construction and engineering litigation expensive? A. Construction and engineering litigation tends to be one of the more expensive types of litigation. i. Construction and engineering projects are complex undertakings involving a lot of different people over a lengthy period of time ii. The amount of documentation generated by a construction project can be vast iii. There are often multiple parties involved, with competing agendas iv. The issues in dispute can be highly technical, requiring input from a number of different experts in order to resolve them In addition, clients should never underestimate the administrative burden that a major piece of litigation can place on their business. A number of people within the client organisation will need to play an active role throughout the litigation process. Q. Are there ways to avoid construction and engineering disputes? A. One of the best methods for avoiding disputes is by investing in good project management. Good project management can take many forms but it will invariably mean: i. Properly managing the project risk through prudent contract procurement at the outset; ii. Employing the right people to manage the project. These people will be organised, good at record keeping, and will be good communicators; iii. Acting swiftly if problems occur. In our experience those clients who come to us early with their potential disputes, can expect a much higher probability of identifying a satisfactory and cost effective solution; iv. And if they follow our advice they will usually be better prepared if a full-blown dispute becomes unavoidable.

Case 12-7 Claims, Litigation, Settlements, and More Claims! Rossi Inc. (Rossi or the “Company”) is a diversified manufacturer of industrial products. In 2008, Rossi updated its asbestos litigation liability, including the costs of settlement payments and defense costs relating to currently pending claims and future claims projected to be filed against the Company through 2017 for losses incurred to date. Before 2008, the Company’s previous estimate was for claims projected to be filed through 2011. As part of the 2008 update to the asbestos litigation liability, Rossi engaged Thompson and Associates (Thompson), a consulting firm, to serve as an external specialist to estimate the claims liability for December 31, 2008. As a result of the 2008 update and the external specialist claims estimate, the Company significantly increased its recorded asbestos litigation liability by million, arriving at a total liability estimate of ,055 million as of December 31, 2008 (which equals the external specialist’s estimate). During 2009, additional payments against the reserve reduced the recorded liability to million. As of December 31, 2009, the Company performed an analysis of the asbestos litigation reserve and determined that the asbestos litigation liability should remain at million. You are a member of the audit engagement team working on the Rossi audit of the December 31, 2009 financial statements. The engagement team has performed preliminary audit engagement planning activities including a review of Rossi’s management memo regarding the asbestos reserves. An excerpt from that memo is provided below. Excerpt From Rossi Management Memo During 2009, Rossi experienced higher mesothelioma (an asbestos-related form of cancer) settlement amounts when compared to the assumptions underlying its models. In 2008, Rossi’s estimated settlement amounts approximated ,000 per mesothelioma claim, compared to an actual avera

In a previous episode of Konica Minolta Legal TV, Marco Maggio, Director of the U.S. Legal Team for All Covered IT Services from Konica MInolta, discussed the four main areas to consider when deciding on a help desk structure. They are availability, economics, risk and expertise. In this episode he is delving into the issue of availability and how important it is for a law firm. Availability is a need based on several variables: 1) How has your firm operated in the past, and what are the service levels your end users have grown accustomed to? 2) What is the culture of your firm? Is outsourcing embraced? 3) What are your law firm's practice areas and how often is your team engaged in litigation? 4) How dependent is your law firm on technology? 5) How scalable is your current support team? 6) How does your IT support team handle increased volume? 7) How does your team handle other variables such as attrition, vacations, illness, new hire ramp-up or time away for training? One of the key benefits of outsourcing your law firm's IT help desk is that you can be less concerned about staffing to peaks and valleys of support needs and can rest assured end users will have help when they need it.

What is LEGAL AID? What does LEGAL AID mean? LEGAL AID meaning, definition & explanation - LEGAL AID definition - LEGAL AID explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Legal aid is the provision of assistance to people otherwise unable to afford legal representation and access to the court system. Legal aid is regarded as central in providing access to justice by ensuring equality before the law, the right to counsel and the right to a fair trial. This article describes the development of legal aid and its principles, primarily as known in Europe, the Commonwealth of Nations and the United States. A number of delivery models for legal aid have emerged, including duty lawyers, community legal clinics and the payment of lawyers to deal with cases for individuals who are entitled to legal aid. Legal aid is essential to guaranteeing equal access to justice for all, as provided for by Article 6.3 of the European Convention on Human Rights regarding criminal law cases. Especially for citizens who do not have sufficient financial means, the provision of legal aid to clients by governments will increase the likelihood, within court proceedings, of being assisted by legal professionals for free (or at a lower cost) or of receiving financial aid. Legal aid has a close relationship with the welfare state, and the provision of legal aid by a state is influenced by attitudes towards welfare. Legal aid is a welfare provision by the state to people who could otherwise not afford counsel from the legal system. Legal aid also helps to ensure that welfare provisions are enforced by providing people entitled to welfare provisions, such as social housing, with access to legal advice and the courts. Historically legal aid has played a strong role in ensuring respect for economic, social and cultural rights which are engaged in relation to social security, housing, social care, health and education service provision, which may be provided publicly or privately, as well as employment law and anti-discrimination legislation. Jurists such as Mauro Cappelletti argue that legal aid is essential in providing individuals with access to justice, by allowing the individual legal enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights. His views developed in the second half of the 20th century, when democracies with capitalist economies established liberal welfare states that focused on the individual. States acted as contractors and service providers within a market-based philosophy that emphasised the citizen as consumer. This led to an emphasis on individual enforcement to achieve the realisation of rights for all. Prior to the mid-20th century, literature on legal aid emphasised collective enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights. As classic welfare states were built in the 1940s and following World War II, an underlying principle was that citizens had collective responsibility for economic, social and cultural rights; and the state assumed responsibility for those unable to provide for themselves through illness and unemployment. The enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights was to be collective, through policies rather than individual legal action. Laws were enacted to support welfare provisions, though these were regarded as laws for planners, not lawyers. Legal aid schemes were established, as it was assumed that the state had a responsibility to assist those engaged in legal disputes, but they initially focused primarily on family law and divorce.

BOSTON — Calling it the first of its kind in the nation, Attorney General Martha Coakley yesterday alleged in a lawsuit that five nationwide banks engaged in deceptive loan practices and pursued illegal foreclosures on Massachusetts properties. Those banks in turn criticized Coakley for abandoning settlement negotiations. Among the homes Coakley cites in her lawsuit is a single-family house on DeLuca Road in Milford. The lawsuit filed in Suffolk Superior Court against Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and GMAC argues the major banks used fraudulent documentation during foreclosure proceedings, including so-called "robo-signing," and illegally foreclosed on properties without holding the actual mortgages. Coakley also claimed the banks failed to uphold loan modification promises to Massachusetts homeowners. Several of the banks named in the suit responded by criticizing Coakley for distracting from negotiations they are having with individual states and initiating what could be a lengthy legal proceeding that will delay relief for homeowners. A spokesman for Citigroup also denied the bank had done anything illegal. "We continue to believe that a collaborative resolution rather than continued litigation will most quickly heal the housing market and help drive economic recovery," said Lawrence Grayson, a spokesman for Bank of America. "We're working closely with the Department of Justice, state attorneys general and other agencies to reach a fair and comprehensive solution to these critical issues." Coakley described the lawsuit as the nation's first comprehensive legal action against the five major national banks regarding the foreclosure crisis that hobbled the country's housing market and contributed to a deep recession, affecting more than 45,000 Massachusetts homeowners. Coakley said she had lost faith in negotiations with the banks but would not rule out signing on to an agreement if one could be reached before the lawsuit is resolved in court. "It was the banks who were ultimately bailed out by taxpayers while individual investors and homeowners were left on their own. And whether those institutions believe they are too big to fail, they certainly have demonstrated that they believe they're too big to care about the impact of their actions," Coakley said. Coakley is seeking civil penalties, restitution for borrowers and compensation for registration fees that were avoided, as well permanent injunctive relief to find a solution to prior unlawful foreclosures. She said she hoped to move the case "as quickly as possible," but that it would be up to the courts to set a timetable. Coakley points to a Milford home, among others, in her lawsuit. It contends that a Milford resident borrowed $253,600 from Sallie Mae Home Loans for a home at 22 DeLuca Road, and that before Jan. 24, 2008, Citibank filed a foreclosure complaint, claiming it was "the owner (or assignee) and holder of a mortgage with statutory power of sale given by (the Milford borrower)." The suit says Citibank forced the property to be sold at auction on March 25, 2008, even though Citibank did not become the holder of the mortgage until May 21, 2008. JP Morgan Chase spokesman Thomas Kelly said the bank was focused on reaching a more far-reaching settlement that would benefit homeowners around the country. "We are disappointed that Massachusetts would take this action now when negotiations are ongoing with the attorneys general and the federal government on a broader settlement that could bring immediate relief to Massachusetts borrowers rather than years of contested legal proceedings," Kelly said in a statement. Lew Finfer, executive director of the Massachusetts Communities Action Network, said a victory in court would help tens of thousands of homeowners facing foreclosure or who had been illegally foreclosed upon, as well as communities who have seen property values deteriorate because of foreclosures. "This lawsuit by AG Coakley, the first against all five major banks on foreclosure violations, gives her a hammer to either compel more serious negotiations toward a good settlement, or she can proceed with the lawsuit and hopefully win a strong decision anyway," Finfer said.

VLF business attorneys explain how the litigation process works in the state of Texas and provide helpful tips to minimize your costs. Joseph: Today we’re going to be discussing the litigation process. And our focus is two-fold, first to educate you on the process itself and second, give you helpful tips that will minimize your cost during the litigation process. What’s the first step in litigation? David: Joseph, prior to filing the lawsuit, we’ll conduct a pre-investigation. That’s where we’ll go out and we’ll interview potential parties and witnesses. We’ll gather relevant documents and we’ll explore potential claims and defenses for our clients. Joseph: Once you’ve completed that pre-suit investigation, what’s the next step? David: The next step, Joseph, is actually the lawsuit. In Texas, we call that a petition. On the other side, if a lawsuit has already been filed against our clients, we’ll file what’s known as an “answer”. Joseph: Once you got either the answer or the petition on file, what’s going to be the next step? David: The next step is the fact find view stage. We call that the discovery stage here in Texas and that’s where we’ll produce documents that are relevant to our claims and defences to the other side. And the other side will do the exact same thing. Again, the purpose of discovery is to get all the evidence that we intend to rely on in support of our claims or defences, get that open so that the case can be decided on the merits. Joseph: After we’ve conducted what’s called “written discovery”, exchange documents and writings, the parties will have the opportunity to take what we call depositions. Now, a deposition is a chance to interview a witness under oath in front of court reporter. Testimonies solicited at a deposition is just as good as testimony presented in a trial, in front of a judge or a jury. David: So, Joseph, the discovery stage has been completed. What can our clients expect prior to trial? Joseph: Once you’ve completed written discovery and deposition, each party has the chance to file what’s called a dispositive motion or a motion for summary judgement. That’s a chance for the parties to apply the facts they’ve gathered to the law and ask the judge to make a ruling in their favour. This can be partial or a full summary judgement motion. If granted, that will dispose of the entire case. David: And then, I would imagine that the next step will be trials. Is that correct? Joseph: Exactly. This is what people confuse with the litigation process as a whole. Trials are a chance, as you see on TV, you go before a judge if it’s a bench trial or a judge and a jury if it’s a jury trial. Each side presents its evidence, makes it arguments to the judge and ultimately, the judge or the jury will make fact findings that will end the matter. We talked about the process, we understand the process, what are some helpful tips or hints that people that are worried about having been sued or looking to file a suit can use to minimize cost? David: Joseph, there’s a couple of suggestions, first and foremost, we always advice our clients to be actively engaged in the process. The client that is actively engaged can absolutely minimize their cost. Another couple practical steps that they can take is prior to the lawsuit actually being filed, we always recommend that our clients gather important documents. Any documents or evidence that we believe are going to be relevant to the case, gather those documents up. Number two, put together a list of potential witnesses and parties for the suite. And then, after the lawsuit has been filed and during discovery, we always advice our clients to speak with individuals and employees at their companies and make sure that they preserve documents and evidence that are going to be used in the case. Remember, a party that does not preserve documents and rather destroys evidence can be sanctioned by a court. That can involve anything from having to pay the other side’s attorney’s fees all the way to having your pleadings struck by the court. So, it’s a very serious matter. Joseph: David, if your pleadings are struck, that would mean you essentially lose your lawsuit. Is that correct? David: Absolutely. So, we’ve talked a little bit about the litigation process. We’ve also touched on some tips. What really can our clients expect throughout the litigation process? Joseph: There are several things, David. Litigation is expensive. It’s time consuming. It’s constantly changing on a case-by-case basis. And so, as you mentioned, clients need to be actively involved in their case because strategies at the beginning of the trial change at the end over the course of a few days. Strategies at the beginning of a lawsuit change as discovery is revealed.

Having graduated from the very first batch of the National Law School, Mr. Dayan Krishnan happens to be from the rare class of “self-made” lawyers, in a profession where supposedly lineage plays an instrumental role to make one’s way up. After graduating from NLSIU in 1993 he managed to work, in his very first job, under, Santosh Hedge, a former judge of the Supreme Court and former Solicitor General of India.
