The Louisiana Bar Association has a program that you can choose to use if there is a fee dispute. There may he a provision in your contract that provides y'all will use that program if there is a fee dispute.
The federal judge set a court date in Jan. 22, and wants to move the case along. I just want to be done with it and settle for as much as you think we can get. I can either pay you byy the hour or one forth of what we get, your choice.
You will need to provide more details if you hope to find a lawyer to take your case. However, I think your proposal of an attorney taking your case on an hourly basis or 1/4 is unrealistic. Federal cases require a much higher standard of practice usually than state court due to strict deadlines...Read more »

Loyola University sent out an email insinuating that the bartenders at TJ Quill’s are serving college kids roofied drinks. This statement was made before the official police raid and investigation began at TJ Quills. I, along with three other fellow students, are 4 of the 12 bartenders that work... Read more »
