    Can anyone provide a recommendation for an attorney to represent a private individual in a matter regarding maintenance and logbook records relating to a personal aircraft? Thank you in advance.

    I know two separate cases where the litigants hired attorneys & are well upside down with $$ spent. That is, started out gonna ‘hand it to da man’. By the looks of it, very unlikely to ever turn around. One is $20+k in, the other $100’s of thousands.

    Not saying you don have a case, just saying, evaluate 1st.

    Depending on whether the sue-er or the sue-ee, the question might be, what state is the other side in?

    "I went home with the waitress, the way I always do
    How was I to know, she was with the Russians, too?

    I was gambling in Havana, I took a little risk
    Send lawyers, guns and money, dad, get me out of this, ha"

    Song just popped into my head. If you can't find a lawyer, maybe a headless Thompson gunner will do?

    Lawyers don’t like penny pinchers. It’s like in their DNA

    Here's a fun thread showing that shops shouldn't like them either. Perhaps shops should double their base annual rate in response to weed out the clowns and their lawyers.

    My mind is having fun with a penny pincher, an airplane, and the need for an attorney.

    Let’s hope it’s a non-fatal situation.

    It does sound like the premise for an episode of one or more 70's-80's cop shows.

    Not bad. I was thinking more of the Rockford Files. The phone rings, the answering machine clicks, and Penny Pincher starts leaving a message about a falsified airframe log.

    Pilot discussion boards have their own version of Godwin's Law, in which, as a discussion progresses, the probability of someone invoking a quote from 'Airplane!' approaches 1.

    I'm not complaining, just observing.

    Since I believe I'm the first to make that observation, feel free to call it Gary's Law.

    What’s the law that says we have to mention Godwin’s law? (Or do we need a lawyer for that?)

    Well ... this is sometimes reportedly a site for the discussion of ... wait for it ... airplanes. So using a quote from the movie is not only acceptable but very self rewarding. :D

    I used to pay AOPA for the legal services, the only time I tried to use it was about a private airstrip. They put me in touch with a local attorney, who would not even return my phone calls. So I stopped paying for it.

    Well, ya gotta expect some if that online. OTOH, the very first response asked a question extremely important to the answer and it was never given.

    Your unusual experience is too bad (I'm surprised AOPA only gave you one name unless he or she was the only one in your area).

    AOPA Panel attorneys who do not return contact should be reported to the organization.
