Some of you have asked what do I actually do for a living. so I thought i might try and explain a little. today i had a really good day at work, a case that I was asked to help out in was resolved favorably. A few years ago my client was hit, head on, in a motor vehicle accident and suffered multiple traumas including a broken collarbone, broken jaw and various other contusions of her body. Today, I and another attorney sat in a room with the insurance company’s attorneys along with a mediator and settled this case. We do this instead of going to court, as it will produce a settlement sooner rather than later and if we don’t like the results we can always go to court. Anyone want to guess at the settlement amount? There might be a prize in it for the person who comes closest to the settlement amount.
Originally I went to school to be a patent attorney because I have the engineering background, but let tell you its boring work. Patent are given for new inventions or parts there of. I quit that first job I had at a firm after two months and have developed a practice of my own. I keep everything I make except what I have to give my only partner, the government in taxes.
I rarely get involved with this type of work or criminal work, as I prefer to estate planning and tax avoidance work. I basically teach people how to minimize any estate tax or other tax they may owe upon their deaths. I know how do you get taxed at death, well in America the government wants a piece of you if you die with too much money. If you have an Estate, all your property comprises your estate, then the government places a 50% tax on all monies over 2 million dollars. So to be clear if your mom is worth 3 million dollars when she dies her children get 2.5 Million and the government gets .5 million. My job is to determine a way to let you keep the whole 3 million. I also help people plan to avoid paying for things like nursing home care. Basically if there is a way to minimize any payments owed to the federal government I will show a client how to do it.
I also do some civil Litigation, mostly involving probate which is the transfer of property from a decedent to his beneficiaries. As a side note, now every time I raise in court to make an objection, I have to laugh to myself thinking of something Mboy said one night. Court cases in America take about a year to two years before they are heard in trial at court and quite frankly the cases usually settle, before trial.
Lately due to the economy I have been doing a lot of bankruptcies. I have been talking to banks about trying to stop foreclosure actions and keep people in their homes. But a lot of what I do is simply talking to clients about their options and getting paid for it, it’s almost an enjoyable job sometimes. I highly recommend it to anyone out there. And I want to let you all know if you need some help or have a question please ask, even if you are not from the US I can usually access any countries laws.
