You really want one with a decent track record, who isfrank, reliable, and wins cases. You would like to have confidence that they will defend you effectively and invoice you fairly for their services. From time to time a word of mouth from a colleague or business affiliate can be practical, even so you should hold your options open and review all the firms accessible, because when you need to have legal support, you need it quickly and you really want the finest you can afford.

Surprise Certified Letter From A Law Firm?
I Received A Notice From The Post Office That A Local Law Firm Has Sent Me A Certified Letter. I Have No Idea Why They Would Send Me A Letter. I Have Not Been In Any Car Accidents, I Do Not Owe Anyone Money, I Have Had No Police Issues Recently. I Called The Law Firm, And The Office Admin I Talked To Said They Don'T Track And Don'T Comment On Certified Letters Sent.
Should I Go Get The Certified Letter? Would Me Signing For It Create Some Kind Of Problem?
It'S Very Mysterious.
They could be asking you for information in another case they're involved in. You might not be the target of litigation. Do you know what sort of law they practice? Check it out online, if possible. That might give you an idea of what is involved.
What Other Things Can You Do With A Law Degree Other Than Practicing Law?
And If You Can, Can You Please Name All The Different Types Of Law. Patent Law, Real Estate Law, Tax Law, Family Law, Civil Law, Criminal Law....The List Goes On...
I Want To Go To Law School But I Don'T Want To Become A Litigation Lawyer. What Other Types Of High Paying Jobs Can I Do With A Law Degree That Doesn'T Require You To Go To Court?
Even for litigation lawyers, 99% of cases settle after discovery. Since you have not gone to law school, my advice to you is that you still should try taking a trial practice class in law school because a lot of people find their hidden interest and end up liking trial practice. Even if you don't, you will learn a lot about trial practice. There probably is no guarantee that you will do 100% transactional work when you get out so try not to limit your areas of learning in law school.
Also, the title and the body of your question suggest that you understand practicing law as "going to courts". The answer is no. Yes, there are a lot of transactional work you can do. This also depends on the size of the firm you work at. Smaller the firm gets, the trend is that you will become a more of a generalist than a specialist at big firms. Being a specialist in a certain area at a big firm other than litigation, you can probably avoid going to courts for most cases.
Legal Issues With Self Defense?
Okay, So Yesterday, I Was At My Town'S 4Th Of July Carnival With My Friends. I Was Hanging Out With One Of My Friends That Happens To Be A Girl. Now This Kid That Is Obsessed With Her Comes Out Of Nowhere, And Pull A Knife On Me, And Tries To Stab Me. My Natural Instinct Kicks In, And I Disarm The Knife And Dislocate His Shoulder With A Kimura Shoulder Lock. He Said He Is Going To Sue Me Big Time When He Is Better. Do You Think I Could Claim The &Quot;Self Defense&Quot; Card Here Or What?
Self Defense is doing whatever level of violence needs to be done to stop the attack.
According to your story, you were attacked without just cause by someone with a weapon (immediate deadly danger). If you had been legally carrying a gun you could have shot him dead and the law should have no problem with it. You countered empty-handed and in the struggle his shoulder was dislocated. As long as you still needed to fight to stop the assault when his shoulder came out of socket, you are still acting in self defense. If the fight was actually over and you continued it,(some self defense actions get called out in court because the defender didn't let the bad guy get away when he had a chance to), then you MIGHT get in trouble though the authorities may also choose to ignore it if the bad guy is very obviously a bad guy.
He can try to sue, people do for stupid things all the time. He SHOULDN'T win as he is clearly at fault per your story.

Anyhow, He Never Filed For Lost Wages Like He Was Supposed To, I Found That Out Too Late. Now After A Week Of Calling And Requesting Info, He Will Not Call Me Back!!!!! If I Fire Him Now, What Will I Owe Him? How Can I Fire Him? I'M Going To Try To Get A Consult With Another Attorney, But At This Point I'M Totally Disgusted And Refuse To Pay This Moron For What He Didn'T Do For Me. He Left Us Responsible For Gathering All Paperwork, Etc, For Him And Faxing It Through Too...Still Wants His 33%.
You are going to be on the hook for his attorneys' fees and costs advanced on your behalf whether you get a new attorney or attempt to settle this on your own without an attorney. Check the language of your contingency fee agreement. If you get a new attorney, the new attorney will be dutibound to withhold the fees and costs from your former attorney at the time of settlement. You will also be on the hook for fees and costs from the new attorney. If you settle the case on your own, your soon-to-be-former lawyer is going to sue you for his fees and costs - then you will be required to pay for court costs, and interest on the amount of any judgment the attorney may be awarded. Firing any attorney is simple: (1) it is best to get a new attorney before you fire the old one. (2) the new attorney will write a letter to your old attorney asking for a copy of the file and all records pertaining to your file. (3) you should also write a letter to your old attorney telling him that you have decided to switch attorneys and to send your file to the new attorney. Good luck -
How To File Legal Separation?
Secure the services of an attorney. You can also file the separation papers on your own. It may be wise to solicit the help of an attorney to ensure all your bases are covered, however. After all, a legal separation is a legally binding agreement. Another option would be to draw up the paperwork yourself or invest in an inexpensive do-it-yourself legal kit.
Meet the residency requirements for your state. Each state is different. To find out what the requirements are where you reside, visit your state's court website.
Include provisions for custody and visitation of any minor children, child support and possible alimony, equitable division of any joint property and who will be liable for any current debts. Work out all the details because, not only is the legal separation legally binding, in some instances it can also dictate the divorce decree should the separation progress into a divorce.
Have the petition for separation served on your spouse. This applies unless you are filing for the legal separation jointly. Once served, the spouse will only have a certain amount of time to respond to the petition.
Notarize the agreement. If both parties agree to the terms of the legal separation, the only thing left to do is have the agreement notarized with both spouse's signatures. If one spouse contests the separation, a judge will have to make the final decisions about the separation in court.
Tips & Warnings
It is best if the terms can be amicably agreed upon by both spouses. Try to be reasonable and fair in negotiating the terms of the separation to avoid further headaches for both parties involved.
Help! I Need Legal Advice!?
Recently I Was Laid Off From Michaels Arts And Crafts Because I Had Been Filing Fraudulent Refunds. And Then A Loss Prevention Investigator Found Out And Had Me Agree To A Promissory Where I Will Pay Back 856.99. Which I Took From Them.
However I Still Fear They Have Other Legal Options.
I Want To Know What Other Consequences Could I Be Facing?
You could face criminal charges for theft, and fraud. However, if you pay them back the money they may not do anything else, it will cost more money for a lawyer than what you owe. However, if you don't pay then expect them to take legal action, they might decide to press charges as well as take you to court for not paying, and your promissory note is a legal and binding contract. My advice is to pay them back as quickly as possible, make sure you get a receipt or pay by check so you have proof you paid them back. There is a time frame in which they can file criminal charges, I'm not sure of that time frame, but if you pay them back you probably have nothing else to worry about.
