Can I sue then nso /c I had their coverage as a nurse during

Can I sue then nso b/c I had their coverage as a nurse during the time I had a formal charge & I could not find an attorney to represent me b/c everyone one of them demanded a $4000-$5000 retainer to handle the case. Then they would turn around & collect whatever the policy pays.I was never told I would have to pay this kind of retainer out of pocket before the policy could actually be used. The whole purpose in buying malpractice insurance is so that it will pay in the event there is a judgement against you.Anyway, no one would take the case. So I plead guilty & signed the court order. Now, I will never be able to do what Texas state board of Nursing has imposed on me. Long story short, I cannot use my nursing license & I live in another state.If I had known this? I would not have even bought the policy. It was worthless. I feel I should be compensated not only for the policy, but what it would have paid the attorney & now what it has done to me financially, not being able to practice as a nurse.I am now in low income housing & just filed bankruptcy. Is this even a case?Dana springer

How much does my lawyer make and how much goes to his firm?

How much does my lawyer make and how much goes to his firm? I have a situation where politics got involved in my case and although my lawyer wanted to continue to represent me, others in his firm suggested that I seek another attorney. This was one month ago. I've since come up with some evidence that ensures a victory in court and now they are wanting to continue to defend me based on a contingency agreement. It is what it is but one month ago my case was strong but the Man U am suing is a pretty big name in the law community and "other people" didn't really want to pursue my case. They would have but they changed their contingent offer to a "hybrid" offer that included a high percentage of the award AND an hourly rate of $100 per lawyer in the meantime. This wasn't what had originally talked about and they knew I didn't have any money. Basically, they were wanting me to go elsewhere. BUT, I want this attorney to continue to represent me, BUT I don't want the "other people" (his firm), to benefit from the award. Is it possible to reach a contingency agreement where just my lawyer benefits from the award and his firm only gets the regular hourly fee? That really is the fair thing to do at this point.

2. I wanted to clarify that the Church Board cancelled the

2. I wanted to clarify that the Church Board cancelled the annual health event toward the last year, but they are interested in taking advantage of having the information, especially demographic information for soliciting for their newly constructed medical program or other purposes including church-related meetings.3. I actually assumed that you have read all the attached file. The main advice I wanted to get was regarding the letter from the conference and my draft letter as a response. I would like to have your opinion whether my draft letter is constructed right way from the legal point of view. I understand you have advised obtaining a local lawyer to get help on this case and I agree, but I would like to give one more effort to write a letter to the President of the Conference and reserve officially involving a lawyer till I receive another response.The President of the Conference wrote on 4-19-16;Dear Dr. Kim,It has been brought to our attention that you are in possession of the names and informationgathered during the health-screeing program(s) of the Napa Valley Korean Church. It is ourPosition that those names are ***** ***** of the Norther California Conference due to the factThat the information was gathered during the operation of a ministry of one of our NCCcongregations. This ministry was a voted ministry of the church and was covered under the liability of the Norther California Conference.Please turn over all the information regarding the health-screening ministry of the Napa ValleyKorean Chruch to Pastor ***** *****m by May 20, 2016. In addition, please cease doing anindependent ministry in the name of the health-screening ministry of the Napa Valley KoreanChurch.We hope that you will respond in a spirit of Christ***** *****ation.Sincerely,My draft letter as an response;Dear Elder __________,I received your letter dated 4-19-16 by mail. I assume your suggestions and demands regarding the Health-screening program are based on the limited and/or misinterpretation of information provided to you.The name of the Health-screening program was originally founded by myself in 1996 prior to becoming a member of Napa Valley Korean Church and the church had a permitted use. The name is ***** ***** an independent entity and neither NCC nor Napa Valley Korean Church possesses the right of its use.The Health-screening program you are referring to is an act of medical service, and I am obligated to be in compliance with the laws of privacy and confidentiality, including the health information privacy, which supersedes the regulations of NCC and your requests as a president of NCC.The medical records including the demographic information are required to be released upon the request by patients and cannot be disclosed without their permission. The majority in the database was contacted, and so far they have elected not to have their private information shared with Napa Valley Korean Church. The records including signed agreement do not contain either the name of Napa Valley Korean Church or the name of NCC even a single time, but all of the laboratory test reports, the main portion of the records, list my personal name as a primary care physician.Therefore, the liability of the medical service was carried under my name though the coverage of my medical malpractice insurance while the NCC liability, unfortunately, does not give any coverage on this important part of activities on this annual Health-screening program.I am afraid that you are in violation of the privacy and confidentiality laws by promoting the breach of these important laws by demanding the transfer of non-permitted patient's data to a non-medical provider, Pastor ***** *****m.It also contradicts your previous statement that the conference has the limited involvement of the local churches. You have shown the high interest on this particular issue and decided to send this type of demanding letter without giving me any opportunities to explain my position when the concern was raised by Pastor Lim and/or the church board. You have repeatedly avoided responding to the relevant inquiries related to the conference employee's dishonesty, and yet enthusiastic in instructing what to do on the independent activities of health ministry and outreach program conducted by a medical provider who is not employed by NCC.It is my sincere request for you to bring the statements of demand to their correction by making them immediately ineffective.It is my prayer that a true Christian leadership is reflected through you as Jesus Christ has demonstrated so.Sincerely,=================================================================Is the Conference President can send me such a letter demanding to transfer all the information?As stated earlier I founded the name of the program, and we never used the name of the church in any independent activity.Thank you again for your advice.
