US and UK Law Systems, Both Fighting for the People
Laws are as old as civilisation itself. As the English empire was steadily growing, it is natural that English Common Law is still prevalent in countries that were formerly colonies. English Common Law is used today in fourteen percent of the world with thirty per cent of the population, whilst American Common Law is used in twenty-six percent of the world with just five percent of the population. The UK law firms using the English Common Law are huge, and most documents, bond issues and international contracts use English law when they are drafted.
The people who study law and fight for the rights of the downtrodden or the rights of those who are innocent are those people who have an understanding of the law as it is right now in this day. They also fight for those individuals who are innocent until proven guilty. The same issues hold true in either country. When a person is in dire need of a professional lawyer to get justice for them, they want the very best. They want someone who has the energy, the desire and true spirit to fight for them and win the case. Can you have the very best representation by the fairest lawyer? There are lawyers such as Damian McCarthy Barrister (now an Advocate at Nationwide Employment Lawyers), passionate employment lawyer who has phenomenal energy and puts it to exceptional use in his practice of law. He feels it is a privilege to work hard at an affordable price for those who need his knowledge and expertise.
In the UK as in the US, there are fair lawyers who understand what the individuals are trying to do. They are not only passionate, but they are compassionate and will give you legal advice, at times, with no charge at all. He is this type of lawyer. He will show you places that will help you if you have no money at all. His job is not just about money. It is about his love of the law and the pride he takes in doing what a lawyer does best. Serving his clients, one by one.
It seems impossible that you could have a legal firm represent you, offer you an hour of free time for a consultation and if he can not take your case, he will find you another professional to fight for you? You can be sure Damian McCarthy Barrister (now an Advocate at Nationwide Employment Lawyers) is an expert who deals specifically with employment law claims. In other words, he is an exclusive lawyer with an expertise in these types of cases. He recommends that if you are going to hire a lawyer to represent you, you must ask that lawyer if he is exclusive to this type of law and if he is not, move on to find another one. He is a believer in doing a truly professional job of employment law at a fair price. He does not believe in the greed found in many law firms. His suggestion is that when you are searching for a barrister to represent you, find one with at least ten years experience which has been focused on employment law.
He does not believe in these special “tricks of the trade.”
** Having a junior lawyer do all their work and then the senior lawyers charge you as if they did the work.
** Charging you exorbitant fees when the work was very easy.
** You need to know that it is wrong for a lawyer to entice you to hold out for a higher sum of money when you have been offered a fair settlement, just so they receive more money from you.
** Your lawyer should not entice you to take a lesser settlement because he doesn’t want to do more work.
** Sometimes you are charged for work that has not been completed.
