Many men and women do not think about finding a lawyer until finally they are in desperate need. The legal issue could possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust legal professional. It may be a felony situation you will need to be defended on. Firms need to have law firms as well, no matter whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unfounded business tactics. Tax law firms are also effective when coping with government troubles. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A large, full service law firm has a lot of lawyers with unique areas of experience, so hinging on your own personal legal issue, you can immediately retain the top lawyer or attorney to satisfy your current need without having to start your search each time you need legal assistance.It is best to locate a legal representative you can believe. You really want one with a good track record, who isreliable, effective, and wins cases. You really want to have confidence that they will defend you thoroughly and charge you reasonably for their products and services. Oftentimes a reference from a good friend or business associate can be handy, however you should hold your options open and examine all the firms available, simply because when you require legal support, you need it quickly and you would like the very best you can pay for.

Education For Probate Attorneys?
What Kind Of Education Does One Need To Become A Probate Attorney?
Obviously Some Law School, But Any Other Specifics?
Anything You'D Recommend They Study Into?
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 additional classes/seminars/legal training etc. each year to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!!)
7) In many states there are even laws requiring a certain percentage of your legal work to be "pro bono" (free of charge) for some charitable purpose.
Absolute "best" law schools are Yale and Harvard.
Best undergraduate majors: Business Admininstration and/or Accounting.
Best personality qualities? Ability to BS and look for work.
Tips? Change your idea of a career path ASAP!!! You WON'T be making $110,000 a year. Unless you have a mommy or a daddy who are already a partner at a law firm. As an attorney, according to one of the latest polls, you'll be making more like $40,000/yr - remember: lawyers have to pay for: office overhead, cost of living (the bigger the city, the higher your cost of living), and the crushing law school debt.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years....
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<< School loans are "non-dischargeable debts" - which means you cannot just write them off in bankruptcies (except in extremely rare cases).
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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. Law schools are cash cows.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. 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 opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

Has Anybody Dealt With The Lawyer Referral Network?
Any "referral network" is going to be based on fees the lawyer pays to have their name listed. Call your county bar association, tell them what area of law you're needing help in (personal injury, real estate, probate, etc.) and ask for a referral. It's free and more likely to yield a decent result.
Are Lawyer To Lawyer Convos Privileged?
Am Trying To Settle A Civil Dispute Over Some Monies With My Ex, In A Latest Phone Call His Lawyer Told My Lawyer That If I Did Not Agree To A Certain Sum Of Money That His Client (My Ex) Intended To Try To Prosecute Me...There'S A Lot More To This Story..But My Basic Question Is Are Lawyer To Lawyer Conversations Privileged? This Seems Like Blackmail To Me - Threatening To Try To Get Me Into Legal Trouble If I Don'T Agree To A Certain Amount Of Money. Anyone Know This? I Won'T Get A Chance To Speak To My Lawyer Again Until Tomorrow And I Really Want To Know. Thank You In Advance For Any Replies.
His lawyers conversation with him is privilaged. Yours with your lawyer is privilaged. His lawyer to your lawyer is not. The tough thing is going to be to get a lawyer to turn and honest up if it affects another lawyer (it's a fraternity of sorts). It depends on how things were phrased. If it was "I'd be willing to let it go (the charge) if we come to a reasonable understanding" then you'd be hard pressed to pursue it. If it were "she's gonna give me some money or I'm gonna have her put in jail" then the malice and desire for money above all other concerns is easier to show. If he has legitimate charges but seekd a settlement rather than pursue it then you'll have to rise to a higher standard. If it's bogus and a shakedown then fight it.
Why The Hate For Lawyers?
I Am A First Year Law Student. Lawyers Seem To Be The Folks Everyone Loves To Hate. Joke Books Abound About Them. So That I Can Empathize With My Future Clients...Why All The Hate For Lawyers?
Thanks In Advance :)
Several reasons. One, they often represent criminals accused of horrible crimes, and do their best to get them acquitted. While doing so is essential to a just legal system, people often blame the lawyers for doing "too good a job."
Second, many of them really do make a ton of money off of the misfortunes of other people. Chemical plant leaks and gives hundreds of people cancer? Yippee, a tort lawyer's gold mine. You get the picture :)
My father's a lawyer, and a couple of my best friends are. I know a lot of them. By and large, they're highly ethical, honest, hard-working, and very intelligent people. But there are still an awful lot of lawyers out there that aren't ethical at all, and will do anything for money...that's true in any profession, but lawyers who do that are often quite visible in society :)
Good luck with your studies.
If A Home Is Left In Awill, And The Deed Is In Trust To Someone Can It Be Taken Away?
As an attorney practicing in Michigan, I can only tell you what I'd otherwise tell a Michigan resident. Which is: once the deed to the house is drafted and filed with the Register of Deeds, then the house is owned by the trust. Now, usually a trust is set-up as what is called a "Revocable Living Trust". The purpose of this trust is so that you can avoid probate and (typically) tax burdens on the receipient of the home.
You, as the Trustee of the Trust, have the ability to deed things in and out of the trust. Once you die, however, your successor trustee steps in and takes your place...with all the same rights as you had when you were alive (save any specific requirements as per the trust).
Therefore, once the Trust becomes the "owner" of the home, any subsequent will (with regard to the house) is unenforceable since you didn't own the house at the time you're attempting to give it away--the trust did. The problem, however, is that the person named in the will to get the house will probably contest that Trust provision of the house because the will was made AFTER the trust. Therefore, the devisee of the house will argue that the fact the will was made after the trust was drafted, it clearly shows an intent by the owner that he was revoking the provision in the trust as to who the beneficiary to the house is, and instead, is leaving the house to the person named in the will.
On the other hand, the successor trustee is going to argue that the person who created the trust and had the house put in the trusts name couldn't give the house away via a will because the house was now owned by the trust itself. Therefore, any will (even if subsequent to the trust) attempting to give away the house will fail because the testator didn't have possesion of the house to the extent that he had a divisible interest.
Whew, not an easy question you asked! =D
