Delivering a Lawyer Within 15 Minutes (Soda Extra)

Delivering a Lawyer Within 15 Minutes (Soda Extra)
The New York Times by John Schwartz  -  June 16, 2011

The wheels of justice tend to be slow, but arrests can happen with lightning speed — and what happens next can be crucial. In searches, seizure and interrogation, things can go badly wrong. At that moment, a lawyer might help keep things from getting out of hand, asserting Miranda rights against interrogation or starting the bail process. But getting that lawyer is no easy thing, said Chris Miles, who co-founded a company, LawyerUp, to get lawyers on the case within 15 minutes. “If I want a pizza, I can get a pizza in 15 minutes,” he says. “I can get a plumber in the middle of the night. Why can’t I get a lawyer?” He co-founded the company in February, and started full operations this month in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, having built a roster of criminal lawyers who do not mind getting late-night calls. The service’s personal plan, aimed at young people, costs $4.95 a month. Those who do not have a subscription can pay a flat fee of $100 for the first call, which the company calls its “pay-in-a-pinch plan.” For all clients, an operator checks contact information and processes the lawyer’s initial fee of $250 on a credit card for the first hour of service. Perhaps inevitably, there is an app for that, already available on Android phones and under development for the iPhone. It is basically a panic button, speed-dialing the service. Lawyers do not pay to sign on to the roster, or for the client calls. Legal ethics rules frown on arrangements in which lawyers split fees with nonlawyers, and especially when lawyers pay people to round up clients — a practice known as using runners. A Connecticut lawyer who signed on, Patrick Tomasiewicz, said that when he got the call from the company, his main question was whether he would need to pay LawyerUp. The company satisfied him that its structure avoided runner issues. The legal profession tends to be wary of innovation, he noted, adding that he had found the LawyerUp process to be far less questionable than many forms of legal advertising he sees on billboards and late-night television. “I don’t have my name on a cab,” he said. No one has called him yet, Mr. Tomasiewicz said. “It may pan out for us. It may not.” Ralph J. Monaco, the president of the Connecticut Bar Association, seemed a bit ruffled in an interview when asked about the company, calling the name “so tasteless.” He said he fretted that it might create a relationship that an unscrupulous lawyer could use to gouge the new client. Does that mean lawyers like Mr. Tomasiewicz should worry about getting involved? “I don’t think so,” Mr. Monaco said. “I would want to see how it’s put into action.” Mr. Miles, who is not a lawyer, argued that it was the current system, not his company, that was open to abuse. “There has got to be something more fair than a pay phone and a phone book in a police station somewhere,” he said. The lawyers, he noted, had been vetted before being added to the list, and “I’d hire any one of these attorneys to represent me or my family.” So far, Mr. Miles said, 700 people have signed up and only a handful have made the call. And no, they do not want to talk about it.

What a great idea!
Quick justice is GOOD JUSTICE!
Justice delayed is justice denied!

You cannot realistically retain an atty when you are suing OCA or any judicial operation..which is a major travesty of American justice, and the reason there are not hundreds of pending lawsuits that allege truthful crimes being committed by the court systems.So there will never be appropriate atty representation for everyone, because that question would have to be addressed also.

The only way to sue OCA is to go Pro Se..or have Federal Ct assign you an atty at their reluctance...which may not be one that has your exclusive interests at heart.

Until every American can address all legal issues that violate our constitution or accepted legal acts, no matter who it is and esp if it is the judicial system itself, this country will bleed the same blood that litters the streets of the 3rd world and middle eastern countries!

We are unfortunately no different than the mindset that constitutes these above Governments, when it comes to who should be before a court of law.

"LawyerUp" shows this country is in trouble! Lawyers can't get jobs so they will really do anything! After all they have the law school loans to payoff! You really have to enjoy this, this is really Justice at it's best!

JUST KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT. YOU ARE NOT GOING TO TALK YOURSELF OUT OF IT IF THEY ARE HELL BENT ON ARRESTING YOU.

NAME, RANK, AND SERIAL NUMBER, THAT'S IT. DON'T EVEN TALK ABOUT THE WEATHER BECAUSE IT GETS YOU TALKING. NOTHING!!!!

EVERYTIME THEY ASK YOU A QUESTION, REPLY WITH: I WANT A LAWYER.

IF THEY SAY TO YOU THAT IF YOU ARE INNOCENT WHY WOULD YOU NEED A LAWYER........THE ANSWER IS: .....................................I WANT A LAWYER !!!

good advice, anything you say will be used against you and anything you don't say unless you say nothing......they falsify those police records to suit their needs

and call Uncle Tony, he takes out the trash before the court system has a clue they are being lied to by trash!

more good advice, if it is the cops and or the DA harassing you, say you want a FEDERAL LAWYER,
call the DOJ not from your home...
they are made you have something on one of their lying whores and they will keep lying to defame your character so they will not be investigated.......
ask for a FEDERAL LAWYER AND A FEDERAL JUDGE, let them lie to a FEDERAL JUDGE!

they are mad you have someting on one or more of their lying whores!
and as for the war on drugs, if you would lie on your FEDERAL DISABILITY claim and you have to go all the way to a Judge because all the doctors said NO! Do you thing someone like that might sell their drugs? The Gov't is their own culprits! Fire the Judge in Niagara Falls! claim he was having a mid life crisis, his vision and hearing was going and throw that SOB off the bench!
