3 Methods To Know You've Picked The Best Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to undergo a legal court system, particularly if you lack confidence in your legal team. Listed here are three important ways to realize that you've hired the right lawyer: 1. They Specialize In Your Sort Of Case Legislation is often tricky and therefore requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you need a legal professional, try to find one that relates to the challenge you're facing. Even when a relative or friend recommends you make use of a firm they are aware, should they don't possess a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. Once your attorney is an expert, especially in the difficulty you're facing, you know you've hired the correct one. 2. The Lawyer Features A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it might be challenging to win an instance, especially if the team working for you has virtually no experience. Look for practices who have won numerous cases that apply to yours. Although this is no guarantee that you case will probably be won, it gives you a better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond When the attorney you've chosen takes time to listen to your concerns and answer your inquiries, you've probably hired the best one. Regardless how busy they are or how small your concerns seem using their perspective, it's critical that they answer you in the caring and timely manner. From the aim of view of a typical citizen who isn't familiar with the judicial system, court cases could be pretty scary you want updates as well as to think that you're portion of the solution. Some attorneys are simply more desirable to your case than others. Make certain you've hired the most suitable team for your circumstances, to ensure that you can put the matter behind you as fast as possible. Faith in your legal representative is the first step to winning any case.

Is It Foolish To Pursue Law, And Eventually Become A Lawyer?
Given The Current Economic Conditions, And Other Factors Which Affect The Direction Of The Market, Do You Think It Is Wise For One To Aspire To Be A Lawyer? Please Base Your Opinions Upon A Logical, Informed Perception Of The World, Not An Emotionally Triggered One.
I'm not basing this on logic, emotion or "informed" perception; I am basing my opinion on reality. And that reality is that the legal job market is BAD, even worse than most professions. I graduated from law school over a year ago and have friends that are sworking at restaurants (not kidding, 3 of my close law school friends, work at a restaurant). The people who have no employment or employment that requires only a high school diploma graduated from a good law school, with honors, and have passed the bar. They are licensed attorneys and cannot find legal work. All the while they are paying back 100K+ in student loans. It is NOT a good time to go to law school. If you go to law school in this economy you do so at your own very HIGH risk of coming out with a lot of debt and extremely bleak job prospects.
What Are The Responsibilities Of A Legal Advisor From A Construction Company?
Unless the legal advisor is an attorney licensed to practice in the state where the company is doing business, the legal advisor may be engaging in the unauthorized practice of law.
However, your question wasn't very clear. Who is the legal advisor advising? Are they advising the company, its employees? (and if so, are they advising about company business or personal business?). Or, are they representing the company itsself. If they are representing the company in legal matters with outside parties, and are not licensed to practice law, then again, they may be engaging in the unauthorized practice of law.
If you can clarify your question, I can try and be more specific in my answer.
How Can I Find A Lawyer For A Civil Problem?
The Person Who Put A New Motor In My Car Did Not Finish It And Dumped It 25 Miles Away From My House, And It Is Not Completed
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)

Q: Child visitation rights in texas?
my grandchild does not want to see his mother he is 6 years old and he just can not go with her on her weekends without throwing a fit. I understand that we must let her have him or we are in contempt of court. if we take her back to court is there anything that might be done. she lost custody because she did live a very poor life and she was not keeping him clean and she has no stable life and many other things, but we want him to live a good life with a good standard and he see she has none and we would like for something else to happen so he does not have to throw a fit every time he has to go with her thanks for all the help
A: There is no quick answer to your question.
You may not like the answer you're about to get. Because if your grandchild is six years old, then your fact pattern is surely inaccurate where you say "we want him to live a good life with a good standard and he see she has none ." Six year olds don't make judgments like that-- not even in Texas.
A six year old child will usually want to be with his mother no matter the physical circumstances of the mother's dwelling or her moral choices. Maybe some other things have happened with the mother that are important enough to consider in the context of a visitation issue, but you haven't mentioned them.
There's a good chance that the six year old "throws a fit" because your son-- the custodial parent-- has failed to raise a child that doesn't "throw fits" and because you and your son have so little respect for the child's mother and the visitation arrangements that the court has ordered that the child senses it and acts out.
While I suspect you and your son are not doing everything you can do to make for a better situation, if you think you are, then you need to seek counseling for the child (and maybe you and your son too)-- not more family court involvement.
Your son had sex with that woman. They had a child. And both parents failed to make a better situation by staying together as a family. Instead of trying to get the court to remove that child's mother from the child's life (as it seems you'd like to do) you should be MORE supportive of the mother by trying to help her overcome the difficulties she appears to face (according to you). If the mother has serious issues, then have your son call child protective services for HELP-- not punishment. Otherwise, you should really and sincerely encourage your grandchild to have a good relationship with his mom. Your grandchild will not be best served by alienating him from his mother-- no matter what issues you may have with her "cleanliness" and "standards."

When Will First-Year Salaries Go Up Again For First-Year Associates At Major Law Firms?
They Went Up From $120,000 Base + Bonus (Usually $5-$10K Or So) In The Late 1990'S To $140K Base + Bonus In The Early 2000'S, And Then To $160K Base + Bonus Around 2004.
But They Have Been Stuck At That Level Since 2004. A First-Year Associate At A Firm Like Kirkland Or Debevoise Still Starts At $160K + Bonus. Where Is The Raise? Why Aren'T First-Years Starting At $180K + Bonus Or $200K + Bonus?
Remember, We'Re Talking About Some Of The Top Lawschool Grads In The Nation. These Kids Deserve Better Than A 2004-Era Salary. Why Should A New 2010 Grad From Hls Or Stanford Have To Put Up With This?
You are quoting NYC salaries. The typical first year salary for my market (Delaware) for a top tier law firm (such as Skadden or Morgan Lewis) is $140K. It costs more to live in NYC and the salaries are commensurate.
Though I am a lawyer and not at all unbiased, I think first year salaries are absurdly high already given current market conditions and will not raise again until at least 2012. While investment banking hiring has already come back from its trough, transactional law has not. There are no good M&A deals occuring right now to pad the big firm coffers, for example. All the deals are occuring under government scrutiny and thus cannot be fee'd to death. And there is an open revolt among Fortune 100 clients against paying a first year the $400/hour rate to support his $140K salary. Most of my Fortune 100 clients are demanding fixed fee agreements and similar alternative compensation models that cut hard on the junior attorney and staff rates. If you can't get the money from a client, then you can't pay it to an associate.
There is no business reason to start a first year at $200K. Any new grad in this market would be stupid to turn down $140K, the first year cannot recoup the $200K through billables, and there are a plethora of decent lateral candidates about who will accept a position in the $150K range without having to be taught stupid things like how to use PACER. Many firms are taking an honest look and wondering whether they really need a UPENN first year at $160K to run a document review when a Villanova grad in the same city that has two years experience will take $140K and be glad to have gotten it. And a lot of the baby lawyer work is being farmed out to India, meaning you don't need a high body count to get the work done.
Like the European pension system, the golden age of endlessly increasing associate salaries has passed.
If You Fire Your Current Lawyer Before You Get A New One, It Will Be Nearly Impossible To Get Another Lawyer?
This Is What Someone Said In Their Answer To Someone Else, And I Trust The Source So Would Like Clarification. Why (When Applying For Ss Disability) Would It Be Hard To Get Another Lawyer If You Fire Your Current One?
Lawyers expect to be paid for the work they do. They take cases on contingency at the risk they won't be paid if they lose, not because a client decides to switch lawyers. If you switch lawyer once what is to stop you from switching lawyers again. Lawyer 1 works for 2 years and is not paid for his work - why would lawyer 2 also risk not being paid because you decide to hire lawyer 3?
Lawyer 2 if hired before you fire lawyer 1 knows you have a legitimate reason to fire lawyer 1.
I do have a lawyer that helps me with disability related legal issues. I once asked him about the pros and cons of hiring on contingency. He told me that working on contingency takes away the incentive to get a case settled quickly. If the lawyer gets a percentage of your back pay, it suits them better to delay winning your case so the amount of the back pay (and their pay) increases. It is better to negotiate a set amount that they receive win or lose and no matter how long or little it takes.
