Keith Petrochko's answer A fee devision is when more than one attorney (often from different offices) work on your case and split the fee accordingly. It can be favorable as it should not cost you anything additional and you get two or more individuals helping you with different knowledge bases.
Keith Petrochko's answer Barring an employment contract to the contrary, your employer is free to change your schedule. However, this adverse action cannot be done due to a discriminatory reason. Obviously, on the face failing to cover a shift is not discriminatory in nature, but if you feel that the stated reason was pretextual you should consult with an employment attorney as soon as possible.
Keith Petrochko's answer Garnishments don't happen overnight, but you certainly shouldn't wait to act on past due bills. There are many attorneys and legal clinics that would be happy to help. Contact the Florida Bar's lawyer referral service for help finding pro bono help; they can be reached at (800) 342-8011.
Keith Petrochko's answer .... was there a trial? If there was no trial you don't owe anything yet. If your insurance paid out I would be shocked if a signed release of all claims wasn't part of the payout arraignment. Call an attorney to discuss you situation in a bit more detail.
