His/Her General ExperienceÖ You need to know a few basic things about your potential lawyer. These include: (1) How long has lawyer been in practice; (2) What percentage of practice involve personal injury claims; (3) Does lawyer practice as a plaintiffs' or defendants' representative; and (4) Would he or she personally handle your case. If not, then find out who would be dealing with you directly, and ask to meet that lawyer. It's not uncommon for more than one lawyer in a firm to handle same case. Often, less experienced attorneys handle routine tasks.

DOJ Ruling on Disabled Rights in Cruise ShipsWritten by Lala C. Ballatan
Continued from page 1
Now, this is really quite an ruling since it essentially goes beyond international law, which maintain that ships are generally only subject to jurisdiction of state under whose flag they sail. Infact, cruiselines choose to register under foreign flags precisely to avoid certain regulatory restrictions and costs (i.e., taxation, labor and employment laws).
The DOJ ruling favoring disabled has become a broad application of ADA to foreign-flagged vessels. This might even be conceivably applied not only to cruise ships, but also to every merchant marine vessel that ever enters US waters. But cruiselines are not interested in complying with nationís stringent ADA since compliance in those circumstances would be extraordinarily expensive and a burden on trade.
I think thereís nothing wrong with ruling, though. Itís just that, public services, transportation and all other busness establishments must not just think about expenses that go with compliance on several laws. They must simply learn to respect rights of disabled citizens.
