Finding An Experienced Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will find that there are countless lawyers in your area that advertise they specialize in your type of case. This can make the procedure of finding one with quite a lot of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below you will be able to narrow down your search to the right one out of almost no time. The initial step is to generate a set of the lawyers which can be listed in your neighborhood that specialize in your circumstances. When you are making this list you must only include those that you have an excellent vibe about according to their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down if you take a little while evaluating their website. There you will be able to find just how many years they have been practicing and several general specifics of their success rates. At this moment your list should have shrunken further to people that you just felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate level of experience. You must then take the time to lookup independent reviews of each and every attorney. Make sure you look at the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The details inside the reviews will give you a concept of the way they communicate with the clientele and the length of time they invest into each case that they are focusing on. Finally, it is advisable to talk with a minimum of the past three lawyers that have the credentials you are searching for. This will give you time to really evaluate how interested these are in representing both you and your case. It is vital that you follow most of these steps to ensure that you find a person which includes the best degree of experience to help you the best possible outcome.

Has Anyone Ever Used Legalmatch.Com Before Or Used The Internet To Look For A Lawyer?
I'M Looking For An Agressive Family Lawyer... Wanted To Know If Anyone Has Ever Used That Website, And What Kind Of Results They'Ve Gotten.
I tried using a few of those different services when I was going through a particularly messy divorce. I'd started out like you, just searching for someone I thought could handle my case (involving the custody of my 2 children and a sizable net worth). I needed someone particularly, as you say, "aggressive" since custody battles tend to be dirty.I didn't want to blindly make calls to lawyers since there was no way to know if they were legitimate so I decided to try a referral service.
The local lawyer referral service I tried was terrible. I think they just went off of a list because after the first "match" didn't pan out I was given another...and another. I'd seen all of the ads for lawyers.com on TV but they weren't much better--more of a phone book of lawyers. Some referrals charged fees and some were ridiculously confusing when it came to costs and reviews.
I ultimately tried LegalMatch and got a really helpful lawyer who knew what he was doing. I supplied my case information in aquestionnairee on their site and got 3 responses from their lawyers. You could see what they charged and prior clients' reviews but they also guaranteed their lawyers were bar certified and seemed to do some kind of screening. Based on my experience, I'd recommend them.
How Do You Become A Personal Injury Lawyer Or Solicitor?
Firstly What Is The Difference.
Secondly. How Do You Become One In The Uk. (Eg After Law Degree)
Thridly. What Is The Average Salary At First And Once Experienced.
In the USA, to become a lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three more years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take classes/seminars etc. to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!)
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available jobs.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of >>>Healthcare or Information Technology! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

What's The Difference Between An Attorney And A Lawyer?
No difference. In Britain and Canada, we tend to use the term "lawyer" more often; whereas in the USA, "attorney" is more common. There is a difference in Britain, however, between a solicitor and a barrister. There, a solicitor is a lawyer who does legal work which doesn't involve the courts; while a barrister is a lawyer who argues cases in court. On the western side of the Atlantic, the latter is called a trial lawyer/attorney.
It's all about semantics.
Where Does City Hall Get Their Laws From?
How Can City Hall Tell Me How To Live?
I Live In Usa.
How Can I Beat The City Hall Laws?
City Hall gets its power from the people. They elected a City Council and a Mayor. The Mayor and Council pass ordinances to make the town a good place to live for everyone. If you want input on an ordinance that is being proposed, most ordinances must be read at three different meetings so citizens may comment on them. If enough people speak against a certain ordinance, the Mayor/Council will reconsider their decision and not pass it.
If the ordinance was passed before you moved to town, it is assumed you were aware of the existing ordinances and agreed to them or you never would have moved into the community.
Can you "beat" the law? If you mean come up with some witty loophole, you can, but that's not the best way to handle it. The best way to change a law is to get a petition. Check the ordinances and you will learn how many signatures you need to get an ordinance repealed/rescinded. If you get the necessary number of signatures, the Council will reconsider their position on an ordinance. In some localities, you may be able to get the ordinance on a ballot so the people can vote whether to keep it or get rid of it.
Seeking Legal Advice - California Labor Laws - Need Lawyer - How Do I Begin A Lawsuit Against Corporation?
I Live In Northern California, A Back In December A Huge Corporate Restaurant Opened Up In My Hometown And I Was Part Of The Initial Staff Of Waiters Hired For Opening. I Know California Labor Laws Are Sensitive So I'M 99.99% Positive I Have A Case. Also, One Of My Former Coworkers Was Suing The Restaurant, No Class-Action Lawsuit, And I Heard Through The Grapevine That She Received $20,000 Out Of Court...
Long Story Short The Grand Opening Wasn'T So Grand; It Was Hectic, Unorganized, Some Of Us Would Work 8-12 Hour Shifts Without Lunch Breaks (Even If We Did Get A Lunch Break It Was Usually Within The First Hour Of Our Shift, Or Last Hour Before We Closed, So We Would Would Work Several Hours Straight With No Breaks), We Were Never Payed Overtime For Working More Than 8 Hour Shifts (My Stubs Read Reg Hrs: 8.00, Ot Hrs: 8:00).
It Was Simply Chaotic, And It Was Difficult To Keep Track Of My Hours Because To Top It Off The Managers Would Clock Me Out In Order For Them To &Quot;Finish [Their] Work&Quot; At The End Of The Night, So Sometimes I Would Be Busting My A$$ Off At 3:00Am Cleaning The Restaurant, Once I Finished And Did My Turn-In I Would Try To Clock-Out...Surprise!!!...I Was Already Clocked Out!!! Since I Was Already Clocked-Out I Couldn'T Print My Time-Slip.
I Would Complain To The Manager That I Didn'T Like The Fact That They Modified My Time, My Excuse Was That I Liked To &Quot;Keep Track Of My Hours&Quot;, But They Would Tell Me That I Could Get A Print-Out Later, That I Will Get Paid For The Hours I Worked Because They Would &Quot;Adjust The Time Later&Quot;, That If They Didn'T Clock Me Out They Would Have To Stay Until I Cleaned Up The Restaurant Until They Could Do Their Own Paperwork, Etc., Etc.
The Point Is I Couldn'T Get Any Time Slips From The Computer To Prove The Time I Clocked Out Because They Would Clock Me Out* I Know This Is Illegal*
I Would Put Up With This Because Times Are Tough And At Least I Had A Job (Keyword Being 'Had') So I Wanted To Keep My Job And Not Get On Management'S Bad Side. Well Sure Enough Business Died Down, Several People Were Laid Off, And I Was One Of The Many Who Was Reduced From Working 5 Shifts A Week, Down To 1 Shift Every Every 2 Weeks. Once They Told Me I Was Only Going To Be Scheduled 1 Shift Every Other Week I Gave Up And Put In My 2 Week Notice After Putting Up With These Working Conditions For 4 Months. It Was Almost An Inconvenience To Work 1 Night Every 2 Weeks, I Couldn'T Keep Up With The New Menus, Rules, And Policies As It Was.
I Want To Pursue A Lawsuit Against This Corporation, But I Need All The Help I Can Get As To How To Approach It. I Would Need To Talk To A Lawyer, And I Don'T Have Money Up Front To Pay For A Lawyer (No Job), So I Am Hoping Someone Can Guide Me Through This Pro Bono In The Beginning Until The End, And Of Course Fees Can Be Paid After This Ordeal Is Over. Thank You For Reading, I Appreciate Any Advice.
Ask the co-worker that the grapevine says won the 20K and use their lawyer
Question Regarding A Legal Will.?
When My Father Passed Away In July My Sister Was In Charge Of Distributing The Money Leftover After The Funeral Services Were Paid For. The Amount For Each Of Us (6 Kids) Is Around 1, 200. One Of My Brothers And My Other Sister Both Got Half Of That Or Less And As For Me And My Brother Here We Have Yet To Get Anything 3 Months Later.
I Called Her About It And We Came To This Issue In Our Conversation Her Tone Changed And Seemed Disinterested In Setting Up The Transfer With Her Bank Td, Wich Is The Same I Deal With. Since That Conversation She Will Not Answer Her Home Or Cell Phone When I Call And I Have Tried Numerous Times So Clearly She Is Trying To Avoid Paying The Rest Of The Kids.
I Don'T Know Too Much About The Process But I Am Almost Positive She Is Breaking The Law By Not Doing What Was Said In The Will.
Should I Contact The Insurance Company That My Dad Dealt With?
Take Her To Court?
I Don'T Know What To Do At This Point...
Kinda Sad That She Is Doing This To Us I Always Knew She Was A Dishonest Gold Digger.
Probate matters tend to reveal a person's true colors................
Get an attorney. For your own protection, get an attorney. >>>>>But I would make it clear, from the very beginning, that this estate probably qualifies for "small estate administration".<<<<<
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
>>>Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Estate Law. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
Since your father had a Will, your sister SHOULD have filed this with the Probate Court. THIS IS PUBLIC RECORD. Go to the Probate Court of the county seat of the county that your father lived in. Ask for a copy of your father's Will. (Take a little bit of money to pay for copies.) I would also ask if a probate case had been opened for your father - GET COPIES!
BUT, if the only money to be distributed is from an insurance policy, if the insurance policy specifically named your sister as the beneficiary, there probably is nothing you can do. If an insurance policy specifically names a beneficiary, this is considered "contractual" and is NOT under the jurisdiction of a probate court.
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. 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.)
