Finding A Seasoned Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are numerous lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise which they concentrate on your type of case. This may make the entire process of finding one with a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, should you follow the tips below it will be easy to restrict your search to the right one in very little time. The first task is to create a list of the lawyers that happen to be listed in the area specializing in your needs. While you are which makes this list you must only include those which you have a great vibe about based upon their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down through taking a bit of time evaluating their site. There you should certainly find how many years they have been practicing and several general information about their success rates. At this point your list should have shrunken further to the people that you simply felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate level of experience. You need to then take time to check out independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure you read the reviews rather than relying upon their overall rating. The data inside the reviews gives you an idea of the way they connect to the clientele and the length of time they invest into each case they are working on. Finally, you will need to meet up with no less than the past three lawyers which may have the credentials you would like. This will provide you with some time to truly evaluate how interested they are in representing your case. It can be crucial for you to follow many of these steps to actually hire a company that has the best degree of experience to help you the best possible outcome.

What Should I Major In If I Want To Go On To Law School And Eventually Practice Real-Estate Law?
I Want To Be A Real-Estate Attorney. Tell Me How To Get There. I'M In Highschool.
This is from a really helpful article I read (written by an attorney):
How do law school admission committees evaluate people with different undergraduate majors? Are there good majors and bad majors for law school applications? I wouldn’t quite say there are bad majors – I think there are good things about most areas of study, and if you have good grades then you’re absolutely set.
Law schools do not want to fill their classes with political science majors. Where is the diversity in that? Law schools want people from different backgrounds, and from different schools for that matter.
1. Majors with scientific fields: You often risk having a lower GPA, but it can be excused because of the difficult curriculum and lab hours. Of course, it also helps to make the case that you want to be a patent/IP lawyer if your have a science/math background. However, it can also risk looking like you really would have preferred to go to med school but you just didn’t have the GPA. If you did well in a science major, you will find that law schools like that and it will help you in the admissions process generally.
2. Pre-Law Majors: Law and Society, Pre-Law, Political Science, and Criminal Justice studies show you have a sincere interest in the subject matter. It’s especially helpful if you do a thesis and/or significant academic or internship work to supplement the curriculum. However, lackluster grades in these subjects will not impress an admission office. A 3.3 GPA in poli sci is not the same as a 3.3 in biomedical engineering or physics.
3. Art/Music Majors: A BFA makes things tricky, but if you do well academically and do a thesis or have something to show for yourself other than being an unemployed actor, then this absolutely works. Actually, I think Art History is one of the best majors for preparing you for law school because it teaches you to look at something you’ve never seen before and apply the facts you’ve learned to determine what you’re looking at. That’s pretty much a law school exam in a nutshell. Anything that shows you’ve done some serious writing will help. Music composition shows you’re a thinking person.
4. Business Majors: Marketing, not so impressive but if you have strong grades and showed a sincere interest in serious things then it’s fine. Economics is better – shows more analysis and academic inclination.
5. Philosophy: Again, writing and analysis. Great stuff.
The question is this – knowing how law schools view your major, what can you do to make up for that weakness? If you haven’t had much writing in your curriculum, how about writing for your school paper or trying to get research published? This is just one example of a way you can use your weaknesses to build your law school applications.
1. Pick a major that sincerely interests you.
2. Get the best possible grades in that major.
This is because law schools care a lot about GPA, and while they take into account the reputation and rigor of the undergraduate school you go to (on the theory that, at a better/tougher undergrad school, a high GPA means more than the same GPA from a less competitive undergrad school), a higher-ranked school will *not* make up for a much lower GPA. So, if the factors 1-3 above are all about the same for these two schools, go to the one you like better and will work harder, so you can get as high a GPA as you can.
GPA and LSAT score are the 2 most important things in law school admission. Going to a competitive undergrad school will give you a "boost" in how your GPA is viewed, but your GPA itself is still most important.

Is A Tax Service Representative A Lawyer?
If I Work With A Tax Service Representative To Help Me W/ My Irs Issues Will They Be Of Any Help? Are They The Same Thing As A Lawyer?
Define "Tax Service Representative"
Most people who represent taxpayers before the IRS are not lawyers and most people don't need a lawyer. Generally taxpayers are represented by a CPA or an Enrolled Agent (a tax specialist licensed by the Treasury Department.) They and lawyers have the same authority to represent taxpayers. Other tax practitioners--think your basic tax return preparer who works for a return preparation chain or independently--can't represent you at all.
The first poster who stated contact the Taxpayer Advocate Service is off the mark. The Taxpayer Advocate is not the first place you go. It only handles cases where the internal system has broken down. It does not provide taxpayer representation at all.
Jobs In The Legal Field.?
I Am A Recent College Grad That Has Been On Only 3-4 Interviews With Law Firms, One With The Courts, Several Interviews In General, And I Don'T Know Why It Is So Hard To Break Into This Industry. I Am Not Just Some Dumb Girl Trying To Get A Job Just To Make Money, But This Is My Life This Is My Career This Is What I Went To School For (I Have A Criminology/Pre-Law Degree). I'Ve Wanted To Become A Lawyer Since I Was 7, But I Had No Clue That The World Of Law Could Be So Difficult To Break Into. An Example You Ask? I Look On All The Job Search Engine Sites For Legal Assistant Positions, A Lot Of Them Seem To Be Looking For People With 2-3 Years Experience, Or 5-10 Years Experience. I Am Bright, Eager, & Professional With Several Years Of Office Experience, And Not Many Bother To Even Bring Me In For An Interview. My Question Is, How Do I Break In This Industry Of My Dreams?, And If So, What In The World Am I Doing Not To Get Into This Industry? Can Some One Help Me Please.
It is actually hard getting a job in the legal field, I remember when i was looking for a job almost every job required years of legal experience. Try and look for junior legal positions of either legal assistance or legal secretaries, they don't require any experience, I entered the field with a junior position, i got the job after i got my diploma in legal services from college i worked full time for a period of 6 months then went to uni, and now i'm still working for the same firm but part time and they promised me a position of a lawyer when i graduate from my law school, moreover there is more chance for me to switch firms because i have experience.
Also try voluntary work, most legal aid firms provide voluntary work, most of my friends entered the field doing voluntary work. Good luck with your job search.
Getting A Divorce Decree?
I Am 16 Years Old And I Do Not Have A Good Relationship With Either Of My Parents, I Am Trying To Get Ahold Of The Divorce Decree So I Know Who Has Custody Rights And So On. Is There Any Possible Way For Me To Get This And If So Please Explain Asap! Thankyou So Much!
I have to say that despite the fact that you need to be 18 years old to be classed as an adult at 16 the DJ may not have put anything in he divorce papers about you as possibly your parents had privately agreed before going to court..........DJs will only make a judgement if the parents don't and only enter it into the paperwork if the children are young children..................as in the magority of places at 16 ys old you can leave home without permission and as long as you are safe, looking after yourself, eating, school/work then no one can force you back home, including the police, they can ask you but can't force you..........so you may not need to find a copy.........divorce paperwork is a public record, however again depending on the laws in the country you are in with regards to data protection you may not be able to see a copy for a number of years .................unless you ask one of your parents who will both have a copy themselves.
Civil/ Human Rights Attorney?
I'M Currently A Sophmore In High School, But For The Past 3 Or 4 Years, I Have Really Had My Set On Becoming A Civil Rights Attorney. I Am Doing Things To Make That Happen, Such As I Joined The Debate Team, I Am Taking Ap English Courses, And Ap History Courses And When Government Classes Become Available (Junior/Senior Year), I Plan On Taking Those.
I Know That In Order To Become A Lawyer Of Any Sort You Need To Have 4 Years Of Undergraduate Schooling And An Additional 3 Years Of Law School And Then Need To Pass A Written Bar Exam Specific To The State You Want To Work In. My Question Is, In Order To Become A Civil Rights Attorney, What Classes Would I Need To Take In Undergraduate School In Order To Be Successful? Political Science I Assume Is One Of Them...?
As stated before, your undergraduate major is not very important. You want to get into law school. Many apply and a few are accepted.
You will set yourself up for success by having two majors, so that you get a very broad education. Pick one tech major such as chemistry, physics, math, economics (the mathematical kind), nuclear engineering. Then, pick a humanities or social science such as English, Latin, philosophy, history, psychology, or political science.
Those who major in a tech field get higher test scores than those who major in one of the humanities or social sciences. The LSAT, which everyone needs to take, is based on logic, and tech majors find logic to be much simpler than other majors. Grades are important, but the LSAT is more important. If you look at the link I provided below, you will see that the few tech majors who go to law school do better than the thousands of political science majors that apply each year.
If you just major in political science, you aren't much different from everyone else. If you have an unusual major and engage in remarkable and unusual activities, you will stand out and go further. One year at our law school, there was a woman who majored in nuclear engineering. She was offered a full scholarship. She had around a 3.0 gpa and better than average test scores, but it was the rarity of her major that got her the attention. She was interested in civil rights law, but chose to go to a top 50 law school.
If you take 2 years off after undergrad to work in the peace corps, you will dramatically improve your application as well.
If you don't want to do all that, you need to get at least a 150 on your LSAT (average) and a 3.0 undergrad gpa to go to a 4th tier law school. The school might not be the greatest, but you will still be a lawyer.
