Find an Attorney

Americas top Attorneys is a new website that has just been launched.

The aim is to provide names and contact details of the best attorneys within each city by practice area. Only one attorney will be listed per practice area per area code.



The screening process to admit attorneys to the website is rigorous. Each attorney must have been in practice for over five years and be in good standing with their State Supreme Court. The background check they have to go through checks their honest6y and the type of representation you, as their client, may expect from them.

The areas of Law they are currently covering are Criminal, Bankruptcy, DUI and Personal Injury. If anyone needs to search attorneys anywhere in the US the service can assist.

So very simply the website will list an attorney, of outstanding repute, per area code throughout the United States. If anyone has need of a bankruptcy attorney in Boulder, Colorado, the top attorney, devoting more than 80% of his practice time to Bankruptcy in Boulder will be listed by name, telephone number, address, website and email address.

Imagine that you have sent you daughter to college and she has gone on Spring Break to Miami. She call you to say someone has rear ended her in her auto and she has a headache. What should you do? Well the first thing to do obviously is get her to go to a Hospital and get referred to a specialist. But, in case there may be personal injury involved you need to contact an attorney. You may be living in Richmond, Virginia and know no one who can refer you to an attorney in Miami.



This is where America's Top Attorneys can assist. With a few clicks of a mouse you are able to isolate Florida, then Miami, then the practice area, in this case personal injury. The website will then list all the top practicing Personal Injury Attorneys in each of the area codes in Miami. All you have to do is call one of them and get them to work contacting your daughter to ensure that she is well advised and represented throughout the process. (Now you can set about getting there yourself) It is important to get her represented straightaway lest the driver, who rear ended her, gets himself represented and starts making accusations or allegations about her. Now we come to more of a nightmare scenario. Suppose your son gets arrested DUI in Houston, or in possession of half an ounce of Marijuana in Brigham City, Utah what is the best you can do. Well obviously they need representation while you arrange bail and in order to get them representation, wherever you are you need and attorney who is proficient in DUI cases or has a Criminal Law practice and they are remote from yourselves.

Thanks to the new service being offered by America's Top Attorneys you are able to get them the best representation available quickly by locating them on the America's Top Attorneys Website and then by using the phone get their rights attended to. Whether he is guilty of anything the State will have to prove. A good attorney can ensure that every step is carried out correctly and if guilty try to ensure that such a conviction remains a misdemeanor with an accompanying "slap on the wrist"

Lead In Washington, D.C. Drinking Water May Have Caused More Stillbirths And Miscarriages



Did you need another reason to be concerned about exposure to lead?

This seems "to confirm the expectation, based on prior research, that about 20 to 30 extra fetal deaths occurred each year that the lead in water was high," Edwards told the Washington Post.

Long-established science suggests that the elevated lead levels should have also increased stillbirths, which are fetal deaths in the second half of the normal 40-week gestation period. The new study, published December 9 in Environmental Science &

Personal injury lawyers target Snapchat as reason for potential car crash suits

Attorneys have set up websites to explain local laws on distracted driving, sent out press releases about Snapchat's potential involvement in certain accidents, and written blog posts about the dangers of the app.

At issue are the app's "speed filter" feature that tracks how fast someone is traveling while they take a selfie. Because Snapchat photos and videos disappear after viewing, they demand more concentration, one lawyer argues.

"If they are behind the wheel of a car and they want to view a Snapchat picture, 100% of their attention has been removed from the road," California litigation attorney David Azizi writes on his blog.

Some lawyers make a more direct plea for potential clients.

"If you have been injured by a distracted driver, someone who was texting or playing with Snapchat or other social media apps call us today for a free consultation," writes Steers and Associates, a California firm.

"Is Snapchat causing car accident deaths?" Wolff and Wolff Trial Lawyers in St. Louis ask on a dedicated page.

Earlier this week, Georgia resident Wentworth Maynard sued Snapchat and a young driver for a car crash that left him with serious brain injuries.

The suit alleges that the driver, a young woman, was using Snapchat while she was speeding at over 100 mph because she was using the speed filter feature.

While she was distracted, her car crashed into a Mitsubishi that Maynard was driving, according to the complaint. He suffered serious brain trauma as a result.

Jay Peavy, a general litigator from Atlanta, is co-consul with one of the Wentworth's attorneys on another case.

He told CNNMoney on Friday that Clayton County, where the accident took place last year, is a blue collar area where most drivers only have the minimum insurance coverage of $25,000.

Peavy suspects that the woman being sued had the minimum liability insurance, which is probably not enough to cover the medical expenses that Wentworth is seeking.

"Any good plantiff's lawyers [are] looking to see if they can get good deep pockets," he said.

Snapchat is not commenting on the suit, but has issued this statement: "No Snap is more important than someone's safety. We actively discourage our community from using the speed filter while driving, including by displaying a 'Do NOT Snap and Drive' warning message in the app itself."

Snapchat isn't the only app that's been targeted by personal injury lawyers for new cases lately.

Steers & Associates, for example, also describe ways to deal with accidents involving Uber and Lyft.
