You need one with a very good track record, who istruthful, productive, and wins cases. You need to have assurance that they will stand for you accurately and charge you reasonably for their services.

Do Politicians Have A Clue About How To Form Laws Regarding Family Issues Such As Teen Pregnancy And Abortion?
Maybe 'no'?! Or it could be that people just don't get how to restrain themselves, because the public education of our children is corporate profits driven, rather than education for our own sake. Dignity and self respect?
Then there is the need for military volunteers, and people to fill the beds at the new prisons. So, push hard against an immovable object with an irresistible force, what do you get?
The failure to teach, reach, our young people is the issue; the laws are just a late response to perceived issues, the MD that treats symptoms instead of causes.
Privacy is gone missing with our rights in our new age of surveillance society, wiretaps, suspicions....
Child Custody Lawyers In San Fernando Valley.?
Does Anybody Have Any Lawyers That They Can Recommend In The San Fernando Valley Or The Los Angeles Area. That Specialize In Child Custody?? I Looking To Get Some Advise
Before interviewing your first prospective attorney, come prepared. Get your LITIGANTS NOTEBOOK organized into the nine (See article "Steps To Take...") recommended sections and if time permits, type in double spacing, your notebook information.
1. How long have you been in practice?
NOTE: We recommend that no one be cons idered who has n ot been practice at least 3 years, 5 years or more is better.
2. From which Law School did you graduate?
NOTE: Some Law Schools are better then others?
3. Are you Board Certified in Family Law?
NOTE: Board Certified Family Law attorneys have been in practice a minimum of 3 years, but most do not become certified until after 6-12 years. To become certified, one must have had cases, in various categories, plus appellate cases, take a written and oral exam, and be re-certified EVERY YEAR. The US Supreme Court Chief Justice recently said of US attorneys that "...three-fourths are incompetent, dishonest, or both ." The odd s of getting a qualified attorney go up when selection is made from the Board Certified Family Law list. But there are no guarantees.
4. How many cases of my type have you had?
NOTE: If the answer is NONE, don't be the first.
5. In how any of these have you represented fathers? References?
6. How many father's cases of this type have you WON? Ask for case numbers!
NOTE: This may just be the MOST important question. References of this type are very important to you and your case . The attorney's track record is vital!
7. What percentage of your case load is Family Law?
NOTE: Qualified attorneys in the Family Law field have 2 or more of their case lo ad in this area. If less than this, they are probably not sharp enough to represent Fathers.
8. Which Bar Associations are you a member of?
9. What is your hourly rate? Do you have a Paralegal at a lower rate?
10. How many hours do you estimate this case to take?
NOTE: Most custody cases require from 80 to 120 billable attorney hours, NOT counting paralegals or expert witnesses, or Ad Litems.
11. Do you require a retainer? How much? Is it refundable?
NOTE: Avoid high retainers. Retainers in excess of 1/3 of the estimated total fee, denies you the opportunity to change lawyers later. If an attorney charges you a non-refundable retainer fee you will not get any of your money back if you fire him. If the attorney charges you a refundable retainer you will only get the unused portion of the retainer fee back should you fire the attorney.
12. Do you have a written contract, and can it be modified?
NOTE: Most attorneys have written contracts that are designed to protect their FEES and provide a means for them to collect unpaid fees from you. Modification of the con tract is one way for you to set forth, on paper, what is expected of the attorney, and provides a remedy for you to assure compliance on his/her part.
13. Do you carry Malpractice insurance?
NOTE: Good attorneys almost always carry insurance, that is, if they value their practice. If they don't value their practice, then neither should you.
14. Are there any Bar grievances against you within the last 3 years?
NOTE: The Houston Bar's attorney referral list will not accept applications from attorneys with active grievances, i.e. those within the last 3 years. Also, this service cost attorneys $500 or more to be listed. However, you should not always disqualify an attorney because he has a bar grievance filed against him. It is a very common ploy in litigation today to file a grievance against the opposing attorney hoping that he or she will withdraw from the case.
15. Do you provide MONTHLY, ITEMIZED STATEMENTS?
NOTE: A common complaint we hear is that retainers are spent, and large sums are required JUST BEFORE the final hearing. The attorney, when asked about the retainer, says, "it got spent", or send a statement "$5000 for services rendered." Don’t hire an attorney who does not s end out billing statements at least once a month.
16. Do you have a list of recommended:
A. Private Detectives
C. Mental Health Professionals
NOTE: If the attorney hires the specialist, then any information obtained using them becomes PRIVILEGED and cannot be obtained through discovery. If you, the litigant, hire this professional, then the other side can obtain any information you developed, through the use of Discovery or Deposition. The attorney should have a good working knowledge of how the above professionals work and should have regular contacts within the above fields. If the attorney is not knowledgeable about experts in the above areas, he does not have the necessary contacts to help you win your case.
17. Have you ever been divorced? And if so, did you get custody?
NOTE: If this attorney is SO GREAT, would you trust him/her if they didn't get custody? And if they didn't, why not?
A Lawyer To Help Get Disability?
Are There Lawyers That Help, Step By Step In Applying For Disability?
Yes, but you're paying them to do stuff they never had to do, if you happened to be one of those people who would be approved the first time with or without a lawyer. (That would be like getting a lawyer to read a standard contract to buy a car. You can buy a car without a lawyer's help, but they'll be happy to take the money, if you want them to read it anyway.)
It's best to do the work on your own. The long-winded forms don't become less long-winded by having a lawyer write down the answers for you, and you'll have to be equally involved either way.
Most people don't get lawyers until after they've been denied to the point of going to court, but I didn't have the energy to wait that long, and, frankly, I already knew my disability didn't fit into all the pre-required conditions, so I would be denied. (Botched surgery caused chronic pain around waist. Who gets that to put it down as a regularly occurring disability?) I had done enough research to know that 60+% of people who claim disability denied the first time, so that's when I hired a lawyer, thus getting help on the particulars.
As for who to get? The truth is lawyers don't guarantee success and they only get paid, if they win, so Binder and Binder doesn't look any worse or better than any other lawyers. My lawyer told me even lawyers average a 25% rate, because SSDI is that hard to get on, and so many people try who can still work, but don't want to because it's harder with the disability. The only advantages they have is they know the laws, they get to know the judges enough to know what they want, and they can present that better.
My lawyer didn't want me in the courtroom, so I didn't go. I needed Disability, because the chronic pain stopped me from doing enough things I cannot work. Little did I know, he got me in because the pain was so bad I was suicidal, until doctors helped with the pain. Who'd have thought a year of fighting to not kill myself works, but I can't lift more than 12 pounds, can't sit or stand for more than 90 minutes at a time (without having to lie down for a while), have trouble leaning over for more than 5 seconds, or a bunch of other things just crazy enough to stop me from having an employer keep me for more than half a day, wasn't enough?
He had four cases that day. I was the only one he won. I wouldn't have won, unless I had a lawyer. (It seems my main problem in life is I gave up looking like I'm in pain, because looking like I'm in pain never lessened pain levels, so was a waste of time and energy. That I refuse to act like a victim was the same reason he didn't want me in the courtroom. lol)
Get a lawyer if you're denied, but don't waste your back pay on a lawyer to fill out forms. As for Bender and Bender? I went local lawyer, because that firm would know local judges. Bender and Bender is national, so I don't know if they're lawyers move or are part of the community. To know that Judge Smith is a hard-nose leglist, while Judge Jones wants an emotional tale along with the evidence is the very reason I got a local lawyer.
When I was disabled, my lawyer was a one-man company trying to look big. Three years later, when hubby needed a disability lawyer, we went to the same firm, only to find out there were three lawyers now. I only saw my old lawyer once in passing. (He remembered me. Apparently, I was one of his first cases. lol)

How Is Canada Enforcing Dui Laws?
Does Anyone Know What Canada Is Doing To Enforce The Dui Law? And If You Could Give Me A Source (Canadian Source) Id Appreciate It Since Its For My Essay, Thanks In Advance! Will Give A Best Answer +5 For The Best Point And Source, Mark
Canada is enforcing DUI law by having the RIDE program out on all holidays, they are also trying to pass a bill in legislation that will allow police officers to do RIDE checks every weekday morning throughout the year. Also Canada is enforcing DUI Law's by making it mandatory for all first time offenders to register in the Back On Track Program- it's a program that teaches people about the consequences of driving drunk and also how much it takes to get over the legal limit. As for a source just type in DUI laws in Ontario Canada, there should be plenty of articles there.
How And When Are Divorce Attorneys Typically Paid?
My Sister'S Attorney Is Going On And On About How He Has &Quot;Carried&Quot; My Sister'S Case Without Payment (Now Pushing $70K) Through Her Rather Lengthy Divorce (Now Going On 6 Yrs.). My Questions Are: Is He Being A Saint Or Is This Common Practice Among Attorneys, To Wait Until The End To Be Paid? Is He Obligated To Continue With The Case Even Though My Sister Can'T Pay Him Until After The Case Has Been Resolved? (They Have Considerable Assets, But Most Of It Is In Property Which Can'T Be Sold Until The End.) Both Parties Live In California.
The attorney can withdraw from the case for lack of payment unless there is a contract between the attorney and your sister stating otherwise. Generally speaking, attorneys get paid during and after the work is done, but in the family law attorneys tend to ask for the money upfront. This is because family law is highly emotional and when a client does not get what he/she was ultimately hoping for (regardless if it was not the attorney's fault), the attorney won't get paid. What her attorney is doing is somewhat extraordinary in the world of family lawyers.
That having been said, how is it that this case has been going on for 6 years now and pushing $70K. Unless it is an extremely complex (many matters to attend to and/or at least one party is fighting tooth and nail for items), 6 years is a long time. You may want to evaluate exactly what is being done and why it has taken so long. I am not stating that there is anything wrong here, just that it is something you should look at if this case is not complex.
