The Make or Break Exam

Posted in Uncategorized on May 30th, 2016

One of the biggest tests is coming up and I plan on passing it. This test is the final test for the year, and if I pass it, I will be one step closer to getting my civil engineering degree.

This has been a stressful period for me, because there is a lot of information covered on the exam, meaning that I have a lot to go over.

Would you throw yourself on the mercy of the court hoping they would get it right? I hope not, because there actually are innocent people in prison. How many news stories have you seen were someone is being released after years of incarceration because new evidence exonerates them? We see accident attorneys on TV all the time, but you do not see a lot of Sydney criminal lawyers making television commercials. I think there is a psychological reason for that.

If you hire an accident attorney, you are likely to be seen as the victim. People can think what they want about you going after a settlement, but their mindset is actually in your favor seeing you as a victim and not a perpetrator. However, if you are accused of a crime, your own friends and neighbors will have you in doubt. Read the rest of this entry »
