What Are The Job Positions In A Law Firm?
I Don'T Want A Description Or Anything. I'M Interested In A Job In A Law Firm. I'Ve Seen My Father Keep His Job For 26 Years And He Makes About 55,000 Dollars A Year Or Something. He'S A Word Processor. What Are The Other Lower Positions?
I've worked in both civil litigation and criminal justice law offices.
The size of the firm, how many attorneys are involved, and the type of law they practice all factor into how many and what type of job positions there are. Some of the positions I have seen at firms (under attorney) include legal secretary, paralegal, receptionist, legal transcriptionist, legal assistants, litigation coordinators, human resource managers, accounts receivables/ billing manager, filing clerks, public relations managers, collection managers and collection assistants, office managers, and personal assistants/ receptionists, interns, court runners, process servers (although these usually are from a separate company) but I have seen process servers who belong to the firm. Of course there are varying levels of attorney positions as well.
Income of each job varies depending on experience and training. Some of the best paid positions within a law firm include human resource managers and legal secretaries. As a legal secretary be prepared for long hours, heavy detail-oriented work, and a lot of responsibility. Human resources may be the way to go for you should you enjoy hands-on work and are a team-oriented person. A human resources position will also allow you to take your career outside of law to other fields and companies should you ever grow weary of working in a law office environment.
Good luck in your search.
I Need A Lawyer In Realestate In Regards To Fraud.?
I Have A Friend Who Is In Prison Who Is A Mexican National. His Wife Died A Few Year Back. Nine Days Before She Died Her Daughter Who Is My Friends Stepdaughter. She Had Her Mother Quit-Claim The Property In The Buckeye Area. Now, He Did Not Sign No Quit-Claim Deed Over To Her. Does He Have Any Rights To His Property? Since The Property Was In Both Their Names
He probably owns it all. His status as a "guest of the State" and foreign citizenship has no bearing. If title was held by both of them, vesting can't be changed without both of their signatures. The Quit Claim is invalid, and cannot be enforced. If they resided in a community property state, title passes to him upon her death, after probate. Your friend needs a lawyer.

Whats A Good Percent For The Attorney?
Almost every attorney will take 33% (1/3) of the total recovery or settlement. However, it is unclear whether other costs (such as hiring an expert witness, doing investigations, etc.) are INCLUDED in this fee or are ON TOP of the 1/3 fee. Look into that when you meet with the attorney. Also, look for a "Martindale-Hubbell Rating" of AV, which is the highest rating.

State Divorce Laws: Pennsylvania
Residency and Filing Requirements: In order to file for a divorce in Pennsylvania, residency requirements must be met for the court to accept the case. If the court discovers it does not have jurisdictional rights to hear the case it will not be accepted or it will eventually be dismissed. The requirements are as follows:
Either spouse must be a resident of the state of Pennsylvania for at least six months prior to filing. A proceeding for divorce or annulment may be brought in the county: 1.where the defendant resides; 2.if the defendant resides outside of this Commonwealth, where the plaintiff resides; 3.of matrimonial domicile, if the plaintiff has continuously resided in the county; 4.prior to six months after the date of final separation and with agreement of the defendant, where the plaintiff resides or, if neither party continues to reside in the county of matrimonial domicile, where either party resides; or 5.after six months after the date of final separation, where either party resides. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3104)
Grounds for Filing: The Complaint for Divorce must declare the appropriate Pennsylvania grounds upon which the divorce is being sought. The appropriate lawful ground will be that which the parties agree upon and can substantiate, or that which the filing spouse desires to prove to the court. The divorce grounds are as follows:
Mutual consent.--The court may grant a divorce where it is alleged that the marriage is irretrievably broken and 90 days have elapsed from the date of commencement of an action under this part and an affidavit has been filed by each of the parties evidencing that each of the parties consents to the divorce.
Irretrievable breakdown.-- The court may grant a divorce where a complaint has been filed alleging that the marriage is irretrievably broken and an affidavit has been filed alleging that the parties have lived separate and apart for a period of at least two years and that the marriage is irretrievably broken.
1.Committed willful and malicious desertion, and absence from the habitation of the injured and innocent spouse, without a reasonable cause, for the period of one or more years. 2.Committed adultery. 3.By cruel and barbarous treatment, endangered the life or health of the injured and innocent spouse. 4.Knowingly entered into a bigamous marriage while a former marriage is still subsisting. 5.Been sentenced to imprisonment for a term of two or more years upon conviction of having committed a crime. 6.Offered such indignities to the innocent and injured spouse as to render that spouse's condition intolerable and life burdensome. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3301)
Counseling or Mediation Requirements: The court may order the parties to attend an orientation session to explain the mediation process. Thereafter, should the parties consent to mediation, the court may order them to mediate such issues as it may specify.
The court shall adopt local rules for the administration of the mediation program to include rules regarding qualifications of mediators, confidentiality and any other matter deemed appropriate by the court.
The court shall not order an orientation session or mediation in a case where either party or child of either party is or has been a subject of domestic violence or child abuse at any time during the pendency of an action under this part or within 24 months preceding the filing of any action under this part.
The Supreme Court shall develop model guidelines for implementation of this section and shall consult with experts on mediation and domestic violence in this Commonwealth in the development thereof. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3302 and 5303)
Filing Spouse Title: Plaintiff. The Plaintiff is the spouse who initiates the filing procedure with the family law or domestic relations court.
Non-Filing Spouse Title: Defendant. The Defendant is the spouse who does not file the initial divorce papers, but rather receives them by service.
Court Name: Court of Common Pleas, __________ County, Pennsylvania. This is the Pennsylvania court where the divorce will be filed. The court will assign a case number and have jurisdictional rights to facilitate and grant the orders concerning, but not limited to: property and debt division, support, custody, and visitation. The name of the court is clearly represented at the top of all documents that are filed.
Primary Documents: Complaint for Divorce and Decree of Divorce. These are the essential documents needed to start and finalize a divorce according to Pennsylvania law. There are anywhere from ten to twenty other documents that may be required throughout the filing process. A few other documents that are typically filed during the process are: Affidavit of Verification, Domestic Relations Income and Expense Statement, Notice to File Social Security Numbers, Marital Settlement Agreement , Acknowledgement, and Praecipe to Transmit Record.
Court Clerk's Title: County Clerk's Office of the Court of Common Pleas. The clerk or the clerk's assistants will be the people managing your paperwork with the court. The clerk's office will keep the parties and the lawyers informed throughout the process in regards to additional paperwork that is needed, further requirements, and hearing dates and times.
Property Distribution: Since Pennsylvania is an "equitable distribution" state, the marital property shall be divided in an equitable fashion. Equitable does not mean equal, but rather what is fair. The court will encourage the parties to reach a settlement on property and debt issues otherwise the court will declare the property award.
In an action for divorce or annulment, the court shall, upon request of either party, equitably divide, distribute or assign, in kind or otherwise, the marital property between the parties without regard to marital misconduct in such proportions and in such manner as the court deems just after considering all relevant factors, including: 1.The length of the marriage. 2.Any prior marriage of either party 3.The age, health, station, amount and sources of income, vocational skills, employability, estate, liabilities and needs of each of the parties. 4.The contribution by one party to the education, training or increased earning power of the other party. 5.The opportunity of each party for future acquisitions of capital assets and income. 6.The sources of income of both parties, including, but not limited to, medical, retirement, insurance or other benefits. 7.The contribution or dissipation of each party in the acquisition, preservation, depreciation or appreciation of the marital property, including the contribution of a party as homemaker. 8.The value of the property set apart to each party. 9.The standard of living of the parties established during the marriage. 10.The economic circumstances of each party, including Federal, State and local tax ramifications, at the time the division of property is to become effective. 11.Whether the party will be serving as the custodian of any dependent minor children.

Family home.-The court may award, during the pendency of the action or otherwise, to one or both of the parties the right to reside in the marital residence.
Life insurance.-The court may direct the continued maintenance and beneficiary designations of existing policies insuring the life or health of either party which were originally purchased during the marriage and owned by or within the effective control of either party. Where it is necessary to protect the interests of a party, the court may also direct the purchase of, and beneficiary designations on, a policy insuring the life or health of either party. (Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes - Title 23 - Sections: 3501, 3502, 3505)
Spousal Support: Not all cases involve support from one spouse to the other. The obligation of one spouse to support the other financially for a temporary or permanent basis is decided on a case-by-case basis as agreed to by the parties or at the court's discretion.

Can Criminal Attorneys Become District Attorneys?
Or Is There A Clause That Says They Can't? Or, Is It Just A Pretty Stupid Thing To Do?
I'm assuming that you mean criminal defense attorneys becoming the politically elected district attorney.
Many assistant district attorneys (not politically elected, but hired by the DA's office) were once criminal defense attorneys, and many politically elected district attorneys were likewise defense attorneys, but the politically elected ones would do well to have prosecution experience, because otherwise it would be a good attack ad by the other side saying that you're only experience in criminal law was defending criminals and not trying to put them in jail.
