The first step is to create a listing of the lawyers that are listed in your neighborhood that specialize in your circumstances.

What Is The Best Job For A Young Woman That Is An Attorney?
I Am Half Way Finished With Law School. I Am An Older Student (I'M 30) And Recently Married. I Am Very Excited To Start A Family Sooner Than Later. I Was Wondering If Anyone Knew Of Someone Or Is Someone With The Same Type Of Situation As Mine And Had Any Suggestions As To The Best Line Of Work In Law For A Woman In My Position. I Am Currently Working For A Private Personal Injury Firm. Would It Be Best To Work In Government? In Environmental Law?
If possible, change your major - ASAP. (Private personal injury firms just want the best of the best- your competition will be FIERCE. Competition for government jobs is even worse than that.)
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law:
**myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task - handling details is a large part of working as a lawyer),
**myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom),
**myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (Actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise. Many people mistakenly think that being an attorney is about the ability to argue. Actually, a successful attorney is defined by his/her commitment to the PEACEFUL resolution of disputes. Lawyers are actually: mediators, advocates, negotiators, advisors, evaluators, and peaceful intermediaries between clients.),
**myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong),
**myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week. There are a FEW attorneys that earn a lot of money - but MOST attorneys just about make a living. Most attorneys do not make as much money as most people think. Also, remember: there are more attorneys than there are available jobs.).
And then, to top it off, attorneys have to keep their client's information confidential. (You cannot use "juicy" tidbits that you have become aware of as fodder for the gossip circles.)
Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<< Even after paying the expensive tuition, you still need to pay for books, room and board, and miscellaneous fees.
The legal profession leaves little room for outside interests. Commitment to the law profession tends to produce an unbalanced lifestyle.
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce in TODAY's job market!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites: http://informeddecisionmaking.blogspot.c...
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several attorneys from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing attorneys is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know a practicing lawyer, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many attorneys. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities. <<<
If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)
California: Bodily Injury Insurance Claim, How Does This Whole Thing Work???
I Was In An Auto Accident About 4 Months Ago, The Other Vehicle(Commercial Truck) Rear Ended A Car In Back Of Me, Going At About 40-50Mph, That Vehicle Then Rammed Into The Car In Front Of Them & That Vehicle Rammed Into My Car, Thus Creating A Sort Of Domino Effect (Me & The Other 2 Cars That Were Hit Were Completely Stopped At The Time Of Impact). Luckily I Did Not Hit Any One (The Commercial Truck Was Found To Be 100% At Fault), However I Was About 7 Months Pregnant At The Time Of The Accident, I Was Rushed Immediately To The Hospital By The Ambulance & Ended Up Having To Stay There For Almost 2 Days The Impact Sent Me Into Pre-Term Labor! I Was Released From The Hospital Still Pregnant, However I Had A Lot Of Pain In My Back, A Bruised Rib & My Legs Hurt A Lot After The Accident (Lifting Them, Exercising). Luckily I Was Able To Go Full Term With My Pregnancy. I've Had My Child Since Then & I Now Have Upper Back Pain A Lot & Neck Pain & My Labor Was A Lot Worse Then My First Born. What Are My Options I Have An Attorney But He Doesn't Seem To Eager If You Know What I Mean, He Is Not Telling Me Very Much. I Am Also Kind Of Traumatized Because I Have Panic Attacks When Ever A Vehicle Gets Too Close Behind Me. I May Be Damaged For Life Physically & Mentally Because Of This Accident I Want To Be Fairly Compensated What Options Do I Have? I Have Never Been In An Accident Where I Had A Bodily Injury Claim, The Last Thing I Want Is To Settle For Too Little.
I work in a Chiropractic clinic, and it's my job to handle Personal Injury Claims [Auto Accidents]. I work in Kansas City, so everything I am saying is according to Missouri law. I'm sure it's a little different in CA, but most insurance companies are the same throughout the states.
The most important question to ask I guess is what auto insurance did the commercial truck have? And do you have all of that information still? His insurance is called 3rd Party Liability, because you said that it was all his fault. Not only is his insurance responsible for your bodily injury, but also to the other drivers if they were injured as well. There is a possibility that his insurance isn't high enough to cover three different cars [assuming everyone was injured]...the state requirement in MO is $15,000. I'm not sure about CA. Let's assume that it is high enough, though.
In my experience, insurance companies won't pay for "bodily injury" unless you've have sought treatment almost immediately after the accident. Some companies are 30 days, some are 90 days. If you don't seek medical treatment before however many days, they won't cover it...claiming that the injury wasn't a result of the accident. HOWEVER, if you were pregnant and required hospitalization, I think that merits a little glance. It sounds like you were in tons of pain. If you can prove that you've been doing things to help alleviate the pain, and you have a paper trail to prove it...then the insurance companies will take you seriously. For instance: you got in the accident on April 1st. You spent a few days in the hospital. When you got out, you had to go back to work, take care of the family, etc. You still had some back pain, you went to the medical doctor on the 20th and he prescribed you some pain pills. In the meantime, you are using hot packs, ice packs, tylenol. In the insurance business they call that "self treating", and telling them that you did that will make them listen. The end of May you go to a massage therapist. The pain still is there so in June you get an MRI, and July you go back to your Medical Doctor. You get my drift...
What you're basically trying to do is set up a timeline for the insurance company to prove to them, yeah the accident happened 4 months ago...but this pain is not going away. You have documented papers (Any doctor visits not including GYN for baby, massages, receipts from tylenol) that prove that you were seeking relief.
Once that has been established, the insurance company now knows that they're gonna have to pay for your physical therapy. And how 3rd Party works is, you go to the Physical Therepist (or Chiropractor or whatever) and they get you better. Meanwhile the bill that you've racked up from getting back to normal is huge now. 3rd Party has to pay that. And guess what else they need to do? Now, they try to settle with you for a low amount. If your bill with the PT comes to $4000, they'll try to settle with you for $4500. Well, that only barely pays the bill, plus you only get a lousy $500. How it's supposed to happen is, they compensate you for:
- Time lost from work [you had to stop working because of your injury, no matter if it was 2 days or 2 weeks...they need to pay you for that lost time you'll never get back]
- Time lost with your family [not to mention your pregnancy, but time that you couldn't spend with your husband or boyfriend because you were in so much pain, any birthdays or holidays you missed.]
- "Duties Under Duress" That is exactly what the insurance company calls this. It means, things that you have to do on a regular basis, that you no longer can do without pain. For instance: you can't lift the laundry to do it, you can't scrub the dishes because it hurts your shoulder, you can't pick up your child. Basically they're paying for your pain and suffering. And they need to! All this mess wouldn't have hurt if that accident had never happened!
So keep that in mind when they throw numbers at you to try and settle. They need to compensate you for everything you've had to go through because of the wreck. Also, you need to know that your lawyer will get a third of the settlement right off the top. So plan accordingly, and don't settle for 12 grand unless you're willing to only get 8.
I know this is long, but Insurance Companies make me so mad...and I hope that my information helps you. Feel free to message me if you have any more questions. :) Good luck!
If Someone Needs A Lawyer?
Can You Hire One Only In A Certain Area Or Can U Hire One From Any State. For Example You Get In Trouble In Ohio And Live There Can You Get A Representive From Va. I Know It Will Probably Be More Expensive But You Know How Usually The Lawyer And Court Are All In Together And It Seems You Just Don'T Get A Decent Ruling.
Some lawyers are licensed in more than one state. Not all, by any means, but some. It doesn't matter where they live. It matters where they are licensed. It is also very foolish to hire a lawyer who is not familiar with local customs, the attitude of the judges, the practices of the DA and such, but that wast not your question.
It is also possible to hire a lawyer who is not licensed in your state who can then petition the court to appear for one specific case. In some states, they must associate with a local licensed lawyer and so the cost is double and the effectiveness is reduced, but that is your choice.
