Cars that are not used as company cars are claimed as assets. In an emergency, the lawyer must also be financed with the car.
To finance a lawyer’s fee, a person seeking advice has to sell his private car if necessary. This was decided by the Koblenz District Court in a decision that became known on Wednesday. According to the judge's ruling, financial help from the state treasury is out of the question if the car is not used for professional purposes. In this case, the sale of the car is reasonable, according to the resolution (Az.: 40 UR IIa 192/05).
Car an asset
The court refused to grant a citizen so-called advisory assistance to finance the lawyer's fee. The person concerned had taken advice from a lawyer. According to current law, people with no assets can have the state treasury pay the lawyers' fees.
In the present case, the unemployed applicant alleged that he had no income or assets to pay the lawyer. However, the district court saw the matter differently. It valued the car at 3500 euros.
