Survey shows how people really use lawyers Survey shows how people really use lawyers Consumers most often use lawyers for reasons other than to file a lawsuit, according to a new Florida Bar survey.Of the more than 800 responses to the online survey conducted by the Bar as part of the Dignity in Law initiative between June and September, more than 80 percent of respondents said they have used an attorney over the past year for reasons other than filing a lawsuit or defending one.The Bar survey found that 16 percent of the participants cited real estate transactions as the reason they used a lawyer in the past year, followed by child support/custody matters, which garnered 13 percent of total responses. Those who filed a lawsuit or sought to litigate a matter in court consisted of only 11 percent of the total participants. Bankruptcy filings and divorce/separation issues rounded out the top five, with each garnering nine percent of responses.Bar President Tod Aronovitz said the purpose of the online survey was to identify which common legal matters Floridians most often use an attorney. The findings are important, he said, to help combat the negative perception created by television and movie portrayals that glamorize criminal law, when, in fact, criminal law is only one of many legal specialties.The survey results — along with downloadable graphics — are being offered to media outlets across the state.“Contrary to the sensationalized criminal cases that the public most often associates with the legal profession, most legal work is essential and goes largely unnoticed,” Aronovitz said. “From buying or selling a home to preparing a will, Floridians rely on attorneys to ensure that their rights and best interests are protected.”Drawing up a will was the reason another 8 percent of survey participants hired a lawyer, while 7 percent needed counsel on probate and estate settlement matters. A lawyer was used to draw up an agreement or contract by only 5 percent of respondents, while traffic cases and insurance claims were cited least often. In addition, 13 percent of those surveyed responded that legal services were obtained for other situations not indicated in the survey. October 15, 2002 Regular News
Press Association Chelsea owner Abramovich was pictured meeting players at training, and it has been reported he moved to allay any fears they may have had following Jose Mourinho’s exit on Thursday. Former Holland boss Hiddink told Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf he was in London on Friday to discuss a short-term role with Chelsea, following Mourinho’s departure. Just seven months after leading Chelsea to the title Mourinho has left by “mutual consent” according to the club’s official statement. Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo cited “palpable discord” between the manager and players for Mourinho’s departure however. Russian billionaire Abramovich will now hope to complete swift negotiations over a second caretaker stint for Hiddink. The 69-year-old guided Chelsea to the 2009 FA Cup in a short-term deal, and is now primed to reprise that role. Roman Abramovich swept into Chelsea’s Cobham training ground on Friday amid reports Guus Hiddink is in London to hold discussions with the club about becoming their interim manager.
