  • The American Bar Association journal identified the most recent of a series of legal services provided “quick and easy.” As the story goes, the client signs up online, provides a summary of the issue, pays $39 and gets a call back in 15 minutes from an attorney who is willing to give him/her advice for 15 minutes. It all sounds good, until you act on what you think that advise was. This is not to say that the advise was bad, or that the attorney is not competent in the field of inquiry; it reflects on the time restrictions inherent in this business model.

  • Punitive damages as opposed to compensatory damages are imposed as punishment for bad faith, wanton, outrageous, or reckless actions towards the plaintiff in a civil suit. However, punitive damages are used to not just to chastise a defendant for outrageous misconduct, but to deter the offending party and others from behaving in a similar manner in the future.
