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

    I am widowed and retired from full time employment but like to keep working. This year I will be testing for national certification as a Medical Interpreter Spanish- English. I am studying to learn the Russian language and in a year or so plan to spend some time in Russia to complete the study and gain proficiency. I am a volunteer Interpreter with a free clinic and do a few other things that keep me busy.
