When comparing one criminal defense lawyer to another, one of the most important characteristics to judge is their ability to craft and deliver a powerful final summation. If you’ve never seen a trial, both the prosecution and the defendant’s lawyers have a chance to deliver both opening and closing arguments. In many ways (through tradition more than actual law), the rules for these arguments are few. A trial may be riddled with objections from both sides during direct and cross examination, but you’ll usually hear very few during these arguments. Both sides are allowed to speak, and attempt to persuade the jury that the evidence is clear one way or the other.
The Final Address
Generally speaking, a criminal defense lawyer gets only two opportunities to directly address the jury. These opportunities come at the beginning of the trial, when he will lay out a roadmap for where he intends to go, and at the end, where he hopes to summarize what has been presented. In almost all cases, this final argument will be filled with his reasons why he believes the state has failed to meet their burden of proof. To win a criminal conviction, the prosecution must prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt. To win an acquittal, the defendant needs prove nothing. He must only convince the jury that the state did not meet their obligation.
Executive Summary We advise our clients who have asset protection issues to use a Belize Trust. The assets of a Belize Trust are immune from the decisions of a foreign court. This includes, bankruptcy courts, family courts, civil judgements and fraudulent conveyance allegations. Anything the foreign (Non Belize) court does is irrelevant when it comes to Belize Trust Assets contained in Belize. The catch all that lawyers like to use is the fraudulent conveyance allegation. They sometimes get the home country court to make a ruling that there was a fraudulent conveyance. Any order, decision, ruling, etc. from a foreign court is a big zero when it comes to the Belize Trust in that it has no legal value concerning Belize Trust assets. When one opens a bank account in Belize using a Belize Trust the banks tend to force issues regarding trust paper work to weaken the trust. So we do not have the Belize Trust open the bank account to preserve the privacy and asset protection value of the trust. What we do is use a Belize Corporation or other corporation from another country to open the bank account. The shares of the corporation are then titled to the Belize Trust and this is documented. This makes the corporation and corporate bank account property of the Belize Trust and thus immune from the decisions of a foreign court. Any such judgments from a foreign court cannot be domesticated or enforced in Belize against Belize Trust Assets. This is the only Trust that has this provision. No other trusts have a statutory exemption against fraudulent conveyance allegations. We will review some conditions for collecting a foreign judgement if the assets are not owned by a Belize Trust, just a regular corporation. If the assets are owned by a Belize Trust they are safe so there is nothing further to talk about.
Belize Corporation Bank Accounts One needs to remember that a personal judgment is not a judgment against a corporation. These offshore corporations legally in the eyes of the law have their own separate liabilities and assets. They are separate and distinct judicial persons. Just because you own the stock, it does not mean your debts transfer to the corporation. The ownership of these anonymous bearer share corporations is not recorded in any public registry or database. It is not easy for a creditor or financial enemy to submit evidence to the court to establish ownership. Even if ownership was established there are a number of other obstacles facing your financial enemies.
Foreign Judgment Reciprocity Belize will only recognize the judgments of a country that recognizes their judgments in their own courts on an equal basis with the way Belize treats their judgments. They tend to favor British Colonies in this regard. Other conditions that must be met to enforce a judgment in Belize follow:
Judgment has to be no older than six years.
Judgment must be final. Time for appeals has expired.
Judgment needs to be from a Superior Court of the country. Municipal court judgments may be difficult or impossible to enforce.
The court had correct jurisdiction over the matter.
The matter was not previously and correctly decided in another court.
The debtor was duly served according to the laws of that country and had ample time to respond.
If the plaintiff and defendant had an agreement to settle disputes in a matter differently than using the court that issued judgment, then the judgment may be not admissible in Belize. Thus the two parties may have agreed that proper venue would be country B, yet the plaintiff sued in country A. The agreement may have called for arbitration yet the plaintiff just sued. This sort of thing could cause the denial of the judgment.
If the judgment is for a fine, penalties or taxes it might be disallowed.
Summary It is most difficult to litigate against an offshore corporation where the underlying debt is against a person or another corporation. If you use a Belize Trust you become safe from the decisions of any foreign court including fraudulent conveyance as long as the assets are contained in Belize and thus under Belize law. In any event the conditions required for a judgment to be enforceable in Belize can be onerous and expensive from the perspective of a judgment creditor. Lawyers in Belize and the country of the judgment would be needed and double legal billing gets costly right away. If the debtor realizes there is a pending action he will remove the assets from Belize right away which thwarts the efforts of the creditor and the money he has spent is wasted. This is something not seen very often.
Sadly, swimming pool injuries and drowning deaths occur at a very high rate. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that everyday there are at least 10 pool related injuries or deaths that occur. What is even more alarming is the fact that 20 percent of these incidents occur to children under the age of 14, and of that 20 percent, a majority of the events happen to children between the ages of one and four.
In most cases, a personal injury attorney would handle a case surrounding a pool injury or drowning death. However, some of these cases can become complicated and may be in the best interest of the injury victim or their family to consider using a personal injury attorney that is very familiar with, or only handles, pool injuries or drowning claims.

Every golfer should know the different types of golf carts. However, these days, they are seen in other places besides the golf course. Today, they are seen in airports, gated communities, colleges and universities, large hotel complexes, campgrounds, RV parks, warehouses and even on farms. They are not only being used for personal use, but commercial use as well. While some are used for personal use, others are used for their functionality and utility. Whether for business or pleasure, if you are thinking about purchasing one, you should know the different types.
In general, there are two types of golf carts: electric and gas-powered. Electric are powered by an electric motor. Lead-acid batteries are used and can be recharged by simply plugging them into a standard electrical outlet. Because of their lack of noise and low cost, electric are a popular choice, especially for lighter use. On the other hand, gas-powered golf carts are the cart of choice for heavier use, such as on a farm. Gas-powered resemble small cars and run on gasoline. Gas-powered are usually not as quiet as their electric counterpart and contribute to pollution.
Before you decide on the different types of golf carts, you should know that you can also purchase both used and refurbished. For those on a budget, this may be a good option. You should also be clear on the golf cart’s intended use and driving terrain. For example, will you be driving on flat surfaces or hilly terrain? Will it be used in a warehouse to haul heavy equipment and inventory or is going to used simply to drive around the neighborhood.
