Governor Lynch and Attorney General Delaney hide behind the Transparency Curtain

If you google "Governor Lynch and Transparency" you will find a surprising amount of article's about his alleged transparency in New Hampshire Government. As a woman my intuition tells me that George Jean Nathan had the right idea he said "What passes for woman's intuition is often nothing more than man's transparency." In this case it's obvious there is none!

  1. It is easy to see why you should consider getting an attorney. First, the lawyers are professionals who earn their living by knowing the details of personal injury cases. Since representing the wounded who are investing their hard earned money on their experience, they have every incentive to finish the best possible settlement in cases of injury.

    1. Dear Mac and/or Buyer Beware
      In cases of Injury caused by DCYF in NH and/or any Government Agency, it is difficult for families to get an attorney to represent them for some obvious reasons:

      1. Attorney's are two expensive families can not afford $20,000 plus to litigate;

      2. Attorney's don't believe in themselves enough to take the case on a contingency basis;

      3. Attorney's not doing cases on a cotingency basis do NOT have every incentive to finish it in the best possible settlement for their clients because this attorney has been paid long before the settlement.

      But thank you for the post.
