(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

Lo he estudiado en diferentes etapas de mi vida desde chico. Ademas cuento con parientes en Canadá y E. U. A. Quiero mejorar en el inglés por lo menos un 30% más.
