Finding A Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will notice that there are countless lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise that they can concentrate on your kind of case. This could make the process of finding one with a great deal of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, in the event you follow the following you will be able to restrict your quest to the right one out of very little time. Step one is to make a selection of the lawyers that happen to be listed in your neighborhood specializing in your needs. While you are making this list you should only include those that you may have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by taking a bit of time evaluating their internet site. There you will be able to find the number of years they have been practicing plus some general details about their success rates. At this point your list must have shrunken further to the people that you simply felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate quantity of experience. You need to then take time to search for independent reviews for each attorney. Make sure to read the reviews rather than just depending on their overall rating. The info inside the reviews will give you a solid idea of the way that they interact with their customers and how much time they invest into each case they are focusing on. Finally, you will want to talk with a minimum of the past three lawyers that have the credentials you are searching for. This will provide you with enough time to truly evaluate how interested these are in representing you and the case. It is crucial for you to follow every one of these steps to actually find a person that has the right amount of experience to help you get the perfect outcome.

I Am A Citizen, My Wife Is Not Legal. What Are My Options? She Is Divorced And Has Kids. Advice Will Be Great!
I Am Now An American Citizen. I'Ve Been Married To My Wife For 2 Years. My Wife Was Divorced And Has Kids. She Is Not A Legal Permanent Resident And Her I-94 Expired In 2002. What Issues/Problems Will I Run Into? I Am Trying To Petition For Her. What Forms Should I Fill Out? Do I Need A Lawyer?
You don't need a lawyer. A lawyer would only be necessary if she had some other matter that complicated her case, such as criminal convictions here in the USA.
Your case is simple. Since she came here with a Visa she'll be allowed to adjust status.
File I-130, I-485, I-765, I-834 and G-325A. File them all at the same time, in the same envelope. As soon as you file the papers she will be 100% legal. She should use the receipt from the Citizenship and Immigration Service as proof of her pending petition. She will continue to be 100% legal until a final decision is made on the petition and adjustment of status request.
Crazy Customer Legal Advice?
Can You Get A Restraining Order On A Crazy Customer? This Customer Received Service Now Wants Her Money Back, She Got Her Service But I Think She Just Wants To Screw Some One To Get Some Money Back, She Says She Will Take Us To Court Which I Welcome It Than Dealing With Her, Keeps On Calling Me On Cell Phone And Says She Is Already Telling Everyone She Knows To Never Come To Us.
Thanks In Advance
You do not have a legal problem. You have a customer problem.
It becomes a legal problem when and if she sues you. If that happens, consult your attorney, of course.
You cannot control her calling you. You cannot control her telling others (or telling you that she is telling others). But you do not have to answer her calls.
If your community has a mediation service, it might serve you well to investigate that option. Much cheaper than lawsuits. It gives you an opportunity to have a neutral party who is trained in mediation assist you in coming to an agreement with this "crazy customer". If the mediation effort fails because of her being "crazy", it could help you if you later have to deal with her in court.
If you cannot or do not want to go to mediation with her, tell her in one last phone conversation, that further conversations are not expected to be useful to anyone. Ask that she not call you again. You cannot lose her again as a customer; she is already gone.
Consult your attorney to find out what options you have at this point.
You may need to contact the police if the harassment continues.
Why Is My Lawyer'S Law Firm Procrastinating?
I Have A Case Pending And Everytime I Talk To Them They Say That They Are Going To File But Never Do. They Have Been Saying This For Months. What Could Be The Problem Why Havent They Filed? I Dont Think My Case Is Getting Enough Attention. I Call And Write Letters And I Hear No Response At All. I Still Dont Get Why They Just Dont File, They Have Everything They Need To. Its Not Like The Defendant Is Working With Them To Settle His Issue. He Ignores Their Letters That They Send Him. What Do You Think It Is? Please Help?
You need to fire him, get your file back from him (which will be no problem, it's routine) and get another lawyer. The problem is, most cases have a set length of time in which to file suit, like 2 years. Don't waste anymore time on him. This is done all the time (firing lawyers) so don't feel weird about it. End it today, take you file to a new lawyer next week.

How To Become A Corporate Lawyer In The Uk?
I Hav A Great Interest In Becoming A Corporate Lawyer After I Have Finished My Studies. But Im Not Quite Sure How I Should Go About Doing This?
And Also What Is The Minimum And Maximum Wage Of A Corporate Lawyer?
Are you studying law or a non-law degree? By corporate lawyer I'm going to assume you mean a solicitor in one of the major London law firms
If you are studying law you should apply for vacations schemes in your penultimate year and then apply for a training contract at the end of that year, i.e. before your final year. If you are not studying law then you effectively do all this in your final year. Many of the firms run special vacation schemes in the Christmas holidays for non law finalists although they will probably take you on in Easter and the Summer as well, check on their websites. If you are a non-law student you'll have to apply for and complete a GDL (graduate diploma in law, alternatively titled a CPE course) which lasts a year and is an intensive law course to bring you up to speed with the law grads.
After you complete the academic phase of qualification either by a law degree or non-law + GDL you'll have to take the year long Legal Practice Course, LPC. It teaches you some of the more practical stuff. After that year you'll start your two year training contract with a law firm. During this period you'll be rotated round departments so that you get some experience and get a feel for the different practices within the firm. After your two year trainee phase you'll qualify as a solicitor into a department.
From there on your career path is less certain. If your very good, and I mean very good, you might make partner after 6-10 years. This means that you'll be one of the senior lawyers that manage and own the law firm. If you don't make partner you could carry on as an associate solicitor, move to a different firm where you might progress further or take on a role such as senior counsel or senior associate which are roles that are becoming increasingly common as a filler between the assistant/associate solicitors and the partners.
The corporate law firms are likely to be involved in these areas of law:
Corporate Law, including Mergers & Acquisitions, Private Equity, general advisory.
Litigation: dispute resolution, employment, arbitration, contracts.
Finance: banking law, capital markets, securitisations, debt and equity issues, fund regulations including hedge fund law.
If you get a training contract before you leave university the firm will usually pay your GDL and LPC fees and give you a maintenance grant for those years, typically £5000 - 7000 per year. If you don't get a training contract then you'll probably have to finance yourself and apply again during your LPC or GDL year. They may still give you some support if you are successful then.
As for salary, the average for the first year of a training contract is probably around £35 000. Once you're qualified this increases to £60 000-£70 000 if you're kept on. This increases each year as you gain experience. If you make partner, and as I said before this is very hard and only a handful at each firm a year get partnership, you may be a salaried partner or become an equity partner. this means you own a part of the firm and so claim a share of the profits. At the magic circle firms like Linklaters and Slaughter and May as well as a few of the other firms this can mean over a million a year. Check out www.thelawyer for profit per equity partner figures, for example Slaughter and May http://www.thelawyer.com/uk100/2006/law/... has a PEP of £1.12million. This is an average some of the more senior partners will make more than this some will make less. A more middle ranking firm like Eversheds will have a lower PEP, £420 000 for 2006, which though less than half of the magic circle isn't to be sniffed at.
Big American firms like Skadden Arps, Jones Day, Sidley Austin, Shearman & Sterling and Weil, Gotshal & Manges often pay more at the junior levels, particularly for newly qualified solicitors (i.e those who have just completed a two year training contract). However, you likely to have to very long hours. working weekends and leaving work near midnight may not be that rare when there is a big deal going on. It's up to you whether you think you'll cope with that and are happy with your work life balance and pay per hour.

Also read http://www.chambersandpartners.com/Chamb... for more information on individual firms and also for more about the whole process.

This is not an easy career to get into. It's stressful, extremely demanding and it is very very competitive and you'll be up against very capable graduates so prepare yourself well. if you're not at university yet work hard at school to get the best grades you can. Apply to the best university you can get into as well. That means preferably Oxford, Cambridge, LSE, UCL, Bristol, Durham, KCL and similar universities.
Possible Fraud With Power Of Attorney, Please Help?
My Dad Married This Woman Four Years Ago Or So. He Got A Power Of Attorney. He Said They Got One Because She Could Use His Money In Emergency Situations. Instead, This Woman Went Behind His Back Got Herself Her Own Apartment And Opened Credit Cards Up In His Name And Had Those Bills Sent To Her Apartment, So My Dad Wouldn't Find Out. Once My Dad Found Out About It, I Don't Know How, They Divorced. She Stole All This Money From Him Behind His Back And Now My Dad Has Been In Financial Trouble But Is Still Making It. My Dad Is A Banker And Says That He Decided Not To Go To Court With Her Because Of The Court Fees And The Months It Would Take To Solve The Case. Is There Anyway Around This, So My Dad Doesn't Have To Pay For A Lawyer Or Court Fees Since She Stole Most Of The Money, Even Though It Is A Power Of Attorney. He Says The Power Of Attorney Was Supposed To Be Used For Emergency Situations And He Trusted Her With It, But She Went Behind His Back. Please Explain What The Power Of Attorney Is Used For In Marriage A Little Bit Better And What Can My Dad Do About This? They Have Been Divorced For Three Years Now, But Is It Even Worth It To Try To Go To Court After All These Years?
First, as a practical matter your dad isn't going to be able to recover the money. It's been spent, and his ex-wife probably either doesn't have the money any more, or it's hidden away somewhere.
Second, you ask "I don't know why he doesn't want me to tell anyone about this situation." The reason: Because your dad knows he was suckered. He's embarrased, especially because, as a banker, he should have known better. And he probably realizes there's no way to get the money back, so he just wants to put this behind him. He was also hurt emotionally. He trusted this woman; he though he loved her. And now he realizes she was just using him. So, it's a painful lesson, but he's trying to move beyond that.
Third, you ask about a power of attorney. A power of attorney is a document that gives one person (in this case his wife) the power to act on the behalf of another person (in this case your dad). There are different versions of power of attorney. Some are "limited powers of attorney." Those are often granted for one specific function. Let's say you want to buy a house, but you're going to be out of town on the day of closing. You can grant someone you trust a "limited power of attorney" to act for you. That means they can sign the papers for you legally. It's limited because it applies only to the house purchase. It doesn't apply to, say, buying a car.
There are also general powers of attorney. And there are different ones for different needs. Someone with a parent in a nursing home might have a limited (or general) power of attorney to sign documents on behalf of the parent. The point, though, is that the power of attorney gives the holder the legal right and ability to act in place of the first person. And that's why--depending on the nature of the power of attorney--you dad may not even have a legal case against the woman.
As difficult as it may be, you really should move on. Your dad's trying to. And--as a banker--he really has a good handle on the situation. But even if he were in some other line of work--teacher, plumber, cab driver, writer, whatever--he's made a decision that he wants to move on with his life and to put this behind him. Try to be supportive. He'll really appreciate it.
Hope that helps.
