A cornerstone in the legitimacy in the preparation of wills and estates is the mental capacity of the person in question. While the majority of persons will prepare their will in line with their personal wishes, some people lack the capacity to make appropriate decisions when it comes to the disbursement of their estate. This diminished capacity is through no fault of their own, and could commonly be attributed to mental illness, dementia or Alzheimer's disease.
- If you've been charged with committing a crime, you may be worried about the options now available to you. You may be somewhat pessimistic about your chances and think that this is now a black or white case. In other words, you either plead guilty and accept any sentence or go the other way and see what the magistrates decide. Are you sure that the case presented against you is completely correct?
- If you've been injured in a car accident, on someone else's property or while on the job, it's always good to consult with a personal injury attorney. He or she can ensure you file a claim within the legally required time limits, if you should need to go to trial and ensure you're being fairly compensated for injuries and related expenses. While no two cases are alike, there are some questions you might have about working with a personal injury attorney; note a few of those here and then discuss them in greater detail with your attorney if you still need more information.
