(Non-alphabetical character)

general appearance


n. an attorney's representation of a client in court for all purposes connected with a pending lawsuit or prosecution. After "appearing" in court, the attorney is then responsible for all future appearances in court unless officially relieved by court order or substitution of another attorney. A lawyer may be leery of making a general appearance unless all details of representation (such as the amount and payment of his/her fees) have been worked out with the client. This is distinguished from a special appearance, which is only for a particular purpose or court session and does not make the attorney responsible for future conduct of the case. See also: special appearance

    Люблю читать, слушать музыку. Люблю хорошие фильмы для подумать. Вообще я интроверт, поэтому с людьми схожусь трудновато, но если таки это случилось, то общаюсь, чему- то учусь и, возможно, что- то даю взамен.

    Soy mas de la mitad mejor de lo que tu crees, con una pizca de maldad menor o igual a la tuya... No he llegado a donde quiero, pero no estoy donde estaba, entonces... todo va como debe!!! I am more than half better than you think, with a hint of evil or less yours ... I have not gotten to where I want, but I&# 39; m not where I was, then ... everything is as it should!
