I have a contingency fee agreement I have trouble to

I have a contingency fee agreement I have trouble to understand. Attorney set a very high hourly rate and 33% total recovery amount and stated whichever is greater. I added "only if the case went to trial and Court awarded such hourly rate" after this high hourly rate. Attorney changed to:"only if the Court were to award such hourly attorney's fees.For example, if I recovers $50,000 through the settlement and attorney has fees of $75,000, do I get nothing? Plus owe the costs?

I am a 100% disabled vet. Last October I was in a legal

My name is***** and I am a 100% disabled vet. Last October I was in a legal dispute with a special agent in the New York FBI Office. I had been helping her with a case in Nigeria. She had sent me two emails that sounded like an offer of sex for some info. I did not respond to her emails. I did send one to her I was going to mail everything to the Tampa ay Times and end my life. That night I got a visit from two St. Pete policemen. I told them everything, to include the two emails. One of the officers went up the hall and called her. When he came back, he said I had to accompany them. I was Baker Acted to St. Anthony's Hospital from where I was sent to Bay Pines VAMC. When I got out three days later, I emailed the agent and told her I didn't appreciate all she had done. I didn't get a response but about three days after that I did. She said she was retiring immediately. Apparently the St. Pete Police contacted the New York FBI and told them everything that was going on. A few days later I received a call from Agent Kenneth May of the Newburgh, NY Office. He said the charges that agent had been building were dropped, thank God.Shortly thereafter, the VA's Mental Health Clinic brought me in and said I had to see another VA doctor. They assigned me to Dr. ***** *****, a rookie. One day she asked me how I spent my money and I responded that I send some to Africa. She started with follow-up probing questions. I didn't say a word. I got on my walker and left. The next day I contacted the head nurse in the Mental Health Clinic, Vicky Tomlinson. Unknown to Dr. Hernandez, I've known Vicky for 15 years or more. She sent me a form to complete and return to her, which I did immediately. The next thing I know is Dr. Hernandez reported me to the FBI in Clearwater. I wrote back to Vicky. One of her staff called me up and said they were all furious with Dr. Hernandez. Then he asked what I wanted done with my letter. I told him to send it to the director's office. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Hernandez was transferred to the Haley VA in Tampa.Now I have the FBI tapping my phone and reading my emails. I want to find an attorney to sue the Bay Pines VA. Not easy. I've been looking.

Do I have any case obstruction ticket I received after nine

Do I have any case for a obstruction ticket I received after nine Troy police officers charged into my condo due to my soon to be ex wife called 911? The police officer that barged in as I was sitting on my couch was the same officer who came down in my basement two days prior when my wife called 911 and told them I was treating to do body harm to myself. As officer #104 entered my condo I stood up from the couch and turned towards all nine officers and #104 said get on your face....he already had his taser out. I had know idea why they were even there...so I thought we could talk. #104 spun me around and shoved his tazer into my back...I fell onto my couch and he kept tazing me. I guessing 10 seconds. I had to push the tazer off of my back because it didn't hurt me so he was just going to keep it on me until I started feeling it...#104 then hand cuffed me and stood me up and said we were just here to talk...but now your going to jail...

In 2015, a judge in Santa Cruz CA issued restraining orders

In 2015, a judge in Santa Cruz CA issued restraining orders against me to two "pastors" that lied under oath. The basis of the orders were that I had applied for a job at a Starbucks which I believe is federally protected activity. I can prove that the "pastors" lied under oath but I'm concerned that I'm up against a corrupt system and that my civil rights have been violated. I have no interest in wasting time and money to argue with judges that did not care about my rights. But I can't find help on the issue. Any suggestions?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I can't find oneJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: NoJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
