You need one with a very good track record, who istruthful, productive, and wins cases.

Are Legal Aid Lawyers Any Good?
I Have To Get A Legal Aid Lawyer For A Custody Battle. Are They Still As Good As A Normal Lawyer Where You Pay Them Or Do They Not Care As Much?
All the most talented lawyers start somewhere and legal aid work is their bread and butter when starting out. Saying this some lawyers lack talent on legal aid but if it's a custody battle - it is not criminal. Civil legal aid lawyers are usually 'better" than criminal ones. It's about luck I'm afraid. Some private lawyers have to do a bit of legal aid work on the side as a rule, so you may get an outstanding one.
Unfortunately they have a bad reputation which they usually don't deserve. I sincerely hope you get one of the better ones - but don't worry. A lawyer is a lawyer.
What Is A Fair Amount For A Lawyer To Charge For A 45 Minute Consultation?
I Went To A Lawyer Today For A Consultation And Had To Give A $1000.00 Retainer Up Front. The Receptionist Told Me That It Is Put In A Trust And If I Decide Not To Have The Lawyer Represent Me Then I Would Get Money Back. Okay I Understood That. So At The End Of The Consultation I Am Told That The 45 Minutes He Talked To Me Cost The $1000.00. Wtf! The Best Part Is That The Guy Told Me Stories About Cases He Represented In The Past So It Wasn'T As Though The Whole 45 Minutes Was About Me. Shouldn'T I Pissed? If I Had Known That A Consultation Would Cost $1000 Then I Would Have Known That His Fees In General Would Be Way Too Expensive And I Wouldn'T Have Pursued It In The First Place. Anyone Out There Have An Opinion? Should I Go Back Tomorrow And Have It Out With His Assistant Who Gave Me Wrong Information On The Phone? Thanks For Your Input.
Lawyers charge what the market will bear. When they asked for the retainer, you should have asked 'what is your hourly rate?' That's extremely high, but legal.
If A Person Was Killed By Medication Over Dosage From A Caretaker What Is It Called?
Seeking Information About Wrongful Death
It's called wrongful death. The coroner or county prosecutor will make a determination whether to try the caregiver in criminal court for manslaughter, 2nd or first degree murder or some other felony or misdemeanor. Even if there is no charge, the caregiver can still be tried in civil court for monetary damages.
Do I Really Need A Lawyer? Family Court?
I'M Going To Court For Child Support And Paternity With My Ex. She Wants Sole Custody And I Have No Problem Giving It To Her. She Wants Child Support And I Have No Problem Paying Support. She And I Are On Good Terms, She Just Wants To Be Our Childs Main Caregiver And Will Let Me See Him Whenever I'D Like, Which I'M Ok With Also Because I Have A Fiance Of My Own And Busy Schedule And Would Rather Her Make The Big Decisions Of His Life. She And I Are On The Same Page But Everyone Keeps Telling Me To Get A Lawyer.
So I Got One And When I Explained The Above To Him Hes Trying His Best To Make Me Fight Her For Dual Custody After I Told Me I Rather Do Sole. He Also Is Telling Me That Shes Says Shes Ok With Me Seeing Him Now But All Of That Will Change Later On And That She'Ll Put Him In An Expensive School And I'Ll Have To Pay For It But If She Also Has To Pay And My Payments Are Fair Then I'D Be Fine With It 50/50 Is How I Feel It Should Go. It Feels Like Hes Trying To Turn This Into A Fight So That He Can Make More $$ Out Of It When All I Really Need Is Someone I Can Ask Questions To. And This Is Costing Me So Much Money I Almost Feel I'D Be Better Off Without One. What Do You Think I Should Do?
YOU ARE SMEARING YOU @SS WITH COW MANURE AND PLANTING GRASS SEED FOR HER TO MOW WHENEVER SHE SHE HAS THE DESIRE TO!!!
It that clear enough. You are leaving yourself wide open to all kinds of problems. At the minimum, you should get Joint "LEGAL" Custody, with her being primary residential, but with a very detailed access schedule. In 40% of the cases, fathers are denied access to their children, which will happen to moment she bring a "New Daddy" home for the child.
Right now she has sole custody and control. You voluntarily gave that the very moment you put your pecker in her without first getting married.
Study these and do the right thing for you and your child.

What Are Traits Of A Good Lawyer?
I'Ve Been Told That I Would Make A Good Lawyer Since I'M Brutally Honest, Loud, Love To Argue, And Stubborn. So, I'Ve Started To Look Into Going Into Law, But I'M Not Entirely Sold On The Idea. Mostly Because My Top Choice College Does Not Have A Pre-Law Program(Focus Is Mainly On Pre-Med And Medical).
My grandfather was an attorney and I am applying to law school myself (as an adult who has had a prior career). I know a bit about the subject.
First, you have to know what sort of law you want to practice. Too many idiots say, "I wanna be a lawyer" thinking that they will make money, but that is NOT the case. I know a LOT of ex-lawyers who went on to work admin or clerical jobs because the legal field is swamped with ambulance chasers and wannabe-dogooder prosecutors. You need to have an idea or a passion for what you want to pursue as a lawyer. Ambulance/settlement chasing civil lawyers often have the best chance to make fast money (through settlements) but the market is flooded with them and most of them really are scum. There are divorce/unemployment/small business and other civil lawyers who do well helping others, but they probably will never be incredibly wealthy. Then you have criminal court, and some people just can't handle it. Being involved in criminal law means spending your days with scum -- it has a higher purpose, but you need waders for the day-to-day dealing with clients.
For example, my grandfather was strongly libertarian and worked primarily with criminal defense. My grandfather truly believed in the design of the system - that everyone deserved a defense. You see, if you pick-and-choose who has rights, no one has rights. We sometimes see some scumbag child killer get a court-provided attorney and people think, "Hang the bastard! He doesn't deserve a defense!" but if we pick and choose who gets defended, then there is nothing to protect innocent men from corruption or media bias. EVERYONE gets a defense, no matter how sick or twisted, because that is the only way to ensure that innocent people remain protected. So my grandfather happily defended drug dealers, wife beaters, and murderers. A portion of the family even disowned him after he got (an alleged) hit-and-run driver who had killed a kid acquitted. I was pretty young at the time, but I heard about the occasional death threat too. Not many people can handle that.
1) You need to know what TYPE of law you are interested in and have some level of passion for it.
2) You have to be good with logic. Law often does not care about intent or meaning, but brutal, logical analysis. The LSAT test is all logic puzzles and reading comprehension. A law might say, in a very verbose way, that "A, B, C, AND D or E or F must have happened to count as a violation."
You have to be able to read a 20-page law, and understand every "If" "and" "or" and "nor" logical statement. It is a bit like computer programming that way.
3) You have to be a performer. My grandfather used to say, "Dazzle them with Bull$hit." If you go to court, you will have to convince a jury. Juries are made out of old women, patriots, and housewives who didn't have a good excuse to dodge jury duty. They aren't all college-educated rational people, so juries don't care about well-constructed logical arguments as much as they should (I know, I've been on jury duty. Using "logic" on some of those guys was worthless). Debate class, argumentative writing classes, and logical analysis won't always help with a jury, so you have to have to be charming and persuasive in more ways than one in order to win.
4) DO NOT go with pre-law. As I am in the process of applying, I can tell you first-hand that most law schools do not care what degree you have, so long as you have one. Different schools look at majors differently, but I know of NO law school that REQUIRES pre-law. I know a lot of English majors who have gotten in, a few criminal justice majors, and a couple of others. My degree is in management. Law schools care most about your undergad GPA, your LSAT scores, and your recommendation letters. A pre-law degree is absolutely useless in the real world, so get a different degree in a field that is somewhat interesting to you. That way you have a backup if you don't end up going to law school.
5) Your first choice of school is rather irrelevant. Having been there and done that all, I can tell you from experience that WHERE I went to school is of little consequence. Unless you are into Alumni connections or have proof of an Ivy League background, no one cares. If location, friends, party reputation, or sports teams play any part in your selection of schools, you're doing it wrong. Pick the most reasonable school (for your situation) that has the best program in what you want to study. If you want to go into law, a school heavy with philosophy, psychology, history, and language classes will help you more than a school which focuses on engineering or biology.
Well, I hope that helps. Have a good one.
Legal Assistance In Quebec?
Hi There I Live In Quebec Just Move Here From Ontario. I Was Wondering I Heard Of A Man That Represents People Who Are Incarserated. Not A Lawer But Someone Who Defends An Inmates Rights. If You Have Any Information That Would Help Even A Good Lawers As My Husband And I Are Needing A New Lawer For This Region Any Help Will Be Greatly Appreciated. We Are Facing 2 Attempt Cases If Your A Good Lawer We Would Love To Hear From You. Any Responce
Not to burst your bubble, but you wont get a good lawyer from Y/A. You should call the bar association in your area and ask for referrals of criminal lawyers period. You will then need to make an appointment and talk to this lawyer and be prepared to pay a retainer for his/her legal advice. In any criminal case, a good lawyer could prevent your husband from going back to jail or getting his sentence reduced. If there is a legal aide in your area, you might want to check that out, but most will not handle unless you are in the poverty level.
But even if you are looking for someone who is not a lawyer and as you state defends inmates rights, is not good. Many inmates while in prison will take up law and think they are experts. My husband who retired from law had a client in prison and this client would send him letters with numerous cases that he believed that my husband should use to defend him. He had no clue and 98% of the cases that he referenced, had absolutely no bearing on his criminal case.
Either way, you need a good criminal lawyer. good luck
