Finding An Experienced Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will see that there are numerous lawyers in the area that advertise that they can focus on your sort of case. This can make the entire process of finding one with a lot of experience a bit of a challenge. However, in the event you follow the following it will be easy to restrict your research to the correct one in almost no time. The first step is to generate a list of the lawyers which can be listed in the area specializing in your needs. When you are causeing this to be list you must only include those that you may have an excellent vibe about based upon their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down if you take a while evaluating their website. There you should certainly find the amount of years they are practicing plus some general information about their success rates. At this stage your list must have shrunken further to people that you just felt had professional websites plus an appropriate amount of experience. You must then make time to lookup independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure you read the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The data in the reviews will give you an idea of the way they connect to their clientele and the length of time they invest into each case that they are concentrating on. Finally, you will need to meet with at the very least the very last three lawyers that have the credentials you would like. This gives you the time to really evaluate how interested they can be in representing you and your case. It really is crucial for you to follow every one of these steps to actually find a person which includes the best measure of experience to help you the best possible outcome.

I Have Spend A Lot Of Money On This Trip And Am Very Worried That They Are Not Going To Let Me In.

And Any Extra Help Would Be Great Thanks So Much!!
You can be refused for any reason. A DWI is a felony offense (serious) in the US. You can absolutely be refused entry for a felony. I hope you bought insurance on your trip.
If it makes it any clearer, here is a copy of Condoleeza Rice's memo to all consulates regarding DUI/DWI convictions.

UNCLAS STATE 079496
E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: CVIS, CMGT
SUBJECT: GUIDANCE ON PROCESSING VISA APPLICANTS WITH DRUNK DRIVING HITS
1. Summary: This cable clarifies how consular officers should handle cases where an applicants' criminal record shows an arrest or conviction for drunk driving or other alcohol related offence. End summary.
2. Posts generally become aware of drunk driving arrests and convictions after receiving the results of fingerprints taken when an applicant has a CLASS hit. While a drunk driving conviction is not a statutory visa ineligibility, a conviction may indicate that further investigation is needed to determine whether the applicant may in fact be ineligible under Section 212(a)(1)(A)(iii). This applies to applicants who have a physical or mental disorder and demonstrate behavior associated with the disorder that may pose, or has posed, a threat to the property, safety, or welfare of the alien or others.
3. In the case of IV applicants, consular officers must refer the applicant back to the panel physician for additional evaluation. Physicians are evaluating for the presence of a mental disorder previously unnoticed before the physician became aware of the alcohol-related arrest. NIV applicants that have hits with evidence of an alcohol-related arrest or conviction must be referred to panel physicians for evaluation. This must be done even if the panel physician is physically located in another city.
4. After consulting with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, we have determined that consular officers must refer applicants to panel physicians in two circumstances: (1) an applicant has a single drunk driving arrest or conviction within the last three calendar years or two or more drunk driving arrests or (2) convictions in any time period. Consular officers must also refer applicants to panel physicians if there is any other evidence to suggest an alcohol problem. Consular officers must adhere strictly to these guidelines in determining when a panel physician referral is appropriate.
5. For a finding of eligibility under Section 212(a)(1)(A)(iii), there must be two criteria established by the panel physician: (1) diagnosis of mental disorder (alcohol abuse) and (2) current harmful behavior associated with the mental disorder or a history of harmful behavior associated with the mental disorder that is judged likely to recur in the future. Consular officers should be aware that neither alcohol abuse or (DWI) drunk driving are sufficient grounds for an ineligibility finding under Section 212(a)(1)(A)(iii), a panel physician evaluation is required.
6. Section 9 FAM 40.11 N8.3 will be updated as follows:
While alcoholism constitutes a medical condition, INA 212(a)(1)(A)(iii) does not refer explicitly to alcoholics or alcoholism. Evaluation for alcohol abuse or dependence is included in the evaluation for mental and physical disorders with associated harmful behavior. An alcoholic is not ineligible to receive a visa unless there is harmful behavior associated with the disorder that has posed, or is likely to pose, a threat to the property, safety, or welfare of the alien or others. To ensure proper evaluation, you must refer applicants to panel physicians when they have a single drunk driving arrest or conviction within the last three calendar years or two or more drunk driving arrests or convictions in any time period. You also must refer cases to a panel physician if there is any other evidence to suggest an alcohol problem.

Can A Federally Recognized Tribal Government Hire A High Priced Attorney For A Tribal Member, Who A Is A Defendant, In A Non-Tribal Attempted Murder Case? This Defendant Tried To Kill A Non-Tribal Member While They Were Both Outside Of Tribal Land / Jurisdiction.
There is no law about who can or can't pay for a defendant's attorney in a criminal case.
This should be legal.

How Do You Trademark A Brand Name And Logo. Is This Possible To Do Yourself Or Do You Need An Attorney?
First, as an experienced Trademark Lawyer, I would recommend doing a thorough search of all available records to determine if your proposed name and/or logo are confusingly similar to names or logos that are already being used in commerce by others.
The USPTO's website does allow you to search public records online. However, reputable businesses usually hire a third party research firm to conduct this exhaustive research for them. If you attempt to do such a search yourself, you will probably miss something, and that could create significant problems for you down the line.
Once you are comfortable with the knowledge that your proposed brand name and logo are clear of any third party uses, there are a number of questions to ask: Is the mark "generic", that is, the name of the class of goods for which you intend to use it?
For example, one cannot trademark the brand name "computer" for use in connection with computers. However, "computer" could become the brand name of a pair of jeans, because in that context, it is actually "arbitrary" or "fanciful."
Other categories of marks are "merely descriptive," that is, does it merely describe an attribute of the product you are branding? Is the term "suggestive," that is, does it not describe but suggest a feature of the goods?
If you are still comfortable with the mark as proposed, you would then file a formal application in the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO"). This application costs a fee of several hundred dollars all the way up to thousands of dollars, based on the number of "classes" of goods or services that you intend to use the trademark in connection with.
Eventually, you would receive a response from an Examiner working at the Trademark Office. That Examiner would probably ask a number of questions about your proposed mark, and often will seek further clarifications about your application.
BE CAREFUL. Whatever you say in response to these questions will become public knowledge as part of the government file. Further, whatever you do in response to these Office Actions can limit or affect your rights later.
For example, disclaiming a portion of the mark, or narrowing the classes of goods for which you are seeking a trademark, can come back to haunt you later. It is easy to give away your rights, but much harder (and sometimes impossible) to ever get them back.
So, to answer your question, no, one does not technically need an attorney to apply for a US Federal Trademark on a new brand name that you intend to use in commerce. However, it is a long and complicated process, especially if you are unfamiliar with it.

What Other Options Are There To Enforce Child Support? The Attorney General Of Texas Isn'T Doing A Thing?
My Ex Is Court Ordered To Pay The Minimum Support And I Assume The Oag Her In Texas Thinks Ruining Already Ruined Credit Is Going To Hurt Him..He Hasnt Worked Any In 2009 So They Can'T Intercept His Income Tax.He Is On Probation And It States In His Probation That He Is To Support His Minor Child. I Called His Probation Officer And He Told Me He Will Do Something As Soon As He Is Contacted By The Attorney Generals Office. I Have Called The Attorney Generals Office At Least Twice A Month For The Past Yr And Get The Same Thing.. They Are Enforcing It...Any Suggestions
I no longer work in the Texas AG's Child Support Division. It was a very frustrating situation. Most child support officers had 1500 or more cases each at any given time. The most we could do was to prioritize the cases and work the most likely to have a positive return.
You state that the loser deadbeat did not work during 2009. I do not know of a court in Texas that will jail him for contempt if he lacks the ability to pay support.
The tools available for enforcement will not help in your situation:
1. Jail. No judge will jail the non-custodial parent if no one can prove he has the ability to pay support. He cannot and should not be punished for failure to pay if he lacks the ability to pay.
2. Tax refund diversion. He paid none. He gets no refund. You get none.
3. Removal of license. It appears that he would not have a professional license (e.g., physician, plumber) to remove for nonpayment.
4. Execution of judgment. It appears that he does not own sufficient non-exempt property to take to satisfy a judgment on the child support debt.
5. Shame and humiliation. This loser does not even support his own child. He is lower than a TV preacher or cancer insurance salesman. He cannot be humiliated.
6. Revocation of probation. If he is otherwise in compliance with the terms of probation, his PO is working to keep him out of prison. As with a motion for contempt, the motion to revoke probation would have to include proof that he is willfully withholding payment (as opposed to being unable to pay).
7. Reporting to credit agencies. As you said, ruined credit is not on this loser's list of worries.
You could use one of the private child support collection agencies. In their contract, they would get to take a third or more of any money collected. They may be able to get creative.
If I had to bet, I would say that the deadbeat is a lost cause.
I regret that you cannot rely on this jerk.
Question About Making A Legal Will?
Is There Any Real Legal Difference Between Having An Attorney Draft A Will (Which Is More Expensive) And Just Having Your Last Will And Testament Signed And Witnessed By A Notary?
Many people today (mistakenly) think they can just pull something off the Internet OR go to one of those office supply stores and grab a generic document packet.
Every state is different.
Every county is different.
All you need to do is have one wrong word in the wrong place, or omit a very important word and your Estate will not be distributed the way you planned. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not skimp here on this - if you try to save a few bucks now by going without a lawyer, it could cost your beneficiaries big bucks later. Please go to an attorney. (If money is a BIG problem, call your local [usually county] bar association; ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys.)
Also consider writing a Power of Attorney for Health Care. This document is just as important as a Will, and it is a good time to do it when you do your Will. A Lawyer can thoroughly explain this document to you so you actually understand what you are signing.
(This is based on my knowledge, information, and belief. 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.)
