This may make the procedure of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, if you follow the following it will be possible to narrow down your quest to the right one out of almost no time. The first step is to produce a listing of the lawyers which are listed in the area specializing in your needs. When you are causeing this to be list you need to only include those that you may have a great vibe about depending on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down if you take some time evaluating their internet site. There you will be able to find the amount of years they have been practicing plus some general information about their success rates. At this stage your list ought to have shrunken further to those which you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate amount of experience. You must then spend some time to look up independent reviews of every attorney. Be sure to see the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The information in the reviews provides you with an idea of the way that they interact with their customers and how much time they invest into each case they are taking care of. Finally, you will want to meet up with at least the very last three lawyers which may have the credentials you are looking for. This will provide you with time to truly evaluate how interested they are in representing you and the case. It really is important to follow most of these steps to ensure that you find a person which has the right amount of experience to help you get the ideal outcome.

Texas Deferred Adjudicatoin On Dui Felony?
Now...With Texas, I Was Able To Get Under A Little Legal Loop Hole That Allowed Me A Deferred Adjudication For A Dui Felony. I Have Finished My Probation, And The Case Is Dismissed And I Am Not Found Guilty. However, I Did Plead Guilty To The Cause To Get The Deferred Rather Than Jail Time. I Am Reading Alot Of Misleading Information That Says Yes It Can Be Expunged...And No It Can'T Be, Only An Order Of Disclosure. So I Am Unsure Exactly What I Can Do. I Of Course Want It Expunged. It Was First Ever Offense And Will Be My Last. Never In Trouble With The Law, In College, And Want To Wipe The Slate Clean. Of Course Lawyers Say Once Its Dismissed It Won'T Be On Your Record. Wrong..It Will Be, My Question Is This, Is It Possible To Expunge A Dui Felony In The State Of Texas And I Know There Is A 5 Year Waiting Period To Do So. But Is It Possible And What Steps To Take. Like I Said...So Much Misleading Information I Can'T Find A Straight Forward Answer. Hoping That Maybe Someone Out There Is Either A Lawyer, Paralegal, Or Someone Who Has Done The Same Thing. Any Help Would Be Appreciative.
Texas law states that a felony DUI conviction cannot be expunged. However, the Texas code of criminal procedure Art 55.01 states that an offense that results in a acquittal or a conviction and pardon is eligible to be expunged. Your case was dismissed after deferred adjudication and there was no conviction, so I understand your confusion. Even though for the sake of argument you have an attorney who attempts to find a loophole to get you eligible to apply, here's your problem.
Texas identifies your offense as a felony due to aggravating factors:
(a) 3rd offense
(b) driving while intoxicated with a child under 15 in the vehicle
(c) an accident with serious injuries
So, IMHO, even if you are eligible to apply, I believe you would be denied due to an aggravated felony with injuries or endangering the life of a child. I know this is not the answer you are looking for but it is an honest assessment based on the facts you provided.
Question : Does Anyone Know Of A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Or Law M.D. In Boston...Preferably A Female???
Question : Does Anyone Know Of A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Or Law M.D. In Boston...Preferably A Female???
Question Details: I Had A Baby 9Months Ago And Seriously Can'T Get Over The Horrible Experience. I Have Never Sued Or Brought Legal Action Against Anyone. It Would Take Me Alot More Than This Paragraph To Explain The Whole Situation-But Its Very Complicated With Several Different Issues. Basicly As A Result I Feel Like My Life Is Ruined. I Have A Beautiful Healthy Baby But Can'T Move Past Everything....I Know I'M Being Vague But Any Referrals Or Assistance You Can Give Would Be Great. Also If Anyone Knows If There Are Any Online Groups Or Boards W/Other People Seeking Action Against Their Ob Or Md I Would Love To Speak To Others. Part Of The Problem Is The Serious Emotional Distress That Accompanied This Whole Mess-I'M Actually Ashamed To Say I Thought Most People Claiming This Weren'T Being Honest-But Now See Malpractice In A Whole New Light. I Guess Because Our Society Is So &Quot;Lawsuit&Quot; Happy I Had Trouble Allowing Myself To Truly Believe That I Was Not Treated Correctly. Thanks So Much.
i'm not from the boston area, but i would recommend you contact the massachussetts bar association. they have a referral service. most often, you will only do a consultation over the phone free of charge. they'll tell you if they want you to come in if they feel you have a good case. that being said, almost all medical malpractice suits involve serious misconduct or neglect by the hospital and/or provider. psychological issues may not fly unless you've undergone extensive counseling (or can otherwise demonstrate this distress -- loss of job, etc) due to some serious (and unusual) circumstances caused by the hospital (or doctor). they're an extremely expensive form of litigation and most attorneys aren't going to help you unless you've got a strong case, money to finance it yourself or they're in a large firm that can afford to pay upfront costs. but again, unless you're case is a strong one, you're unlikely to get a big cash payoff, which throws into question the point of pursuing litigation. the attorney you speak to may only recommend that you file a complaint with the medical board in your state. it may not sound like much, but at least you can know your concerns will be documented with the right people. good luck
Corporate Lawyer, Or Partner Attorney?
What Is The Difference Between A Corporate Lawyer & A Partner Attorney? What Is A Better Career, And What Makes More Money?
Well, the terminology is a bit off.
By "corporate lawyer," I think you mean what's ordinarily called an "in-house lawyer."
An in-house lawyer is an employee of a corporation that's engaged in some business, and generally renders services only to that corporation. Big companies may have dozens, or even hundreds, of in-house lawyers. In-house lawyers are typically paid a salary, sometimes get a bonus, and (at least in some public companies) participate in stock option and other equity compensation plans.
A lawyer who is a "partner" is someone who's a partner in (i.e. a part owner of) a law firm. Law firms are typically made up of anywhere from a few to a hundreds of lawyers, who basically free-lance for whatever clients hire them. The law firm charges its clients fees, typically but not always on a per-hour basis, and (after paying expenses), the partners split the fees among them on some basis, which varies from firm to firm.
What is a better career depends entirely on the lawyer and what's important to him, and also on the company or firm he works for.
Traditionally, the most "high-powered" and financially successful lawyers are partners in firms. However, the relative prestige (and income) of in-house lawyers has been on the rise for several decades. The general counsel (the top in-house lawyer) for a large, public corporation is highly respected and often quite well-paid.
Lawyers in firms typically work more hours, and spend more time hustling around for business and worrying about non-legal things like office rent and employees. In-house lawyers tend to have more of a nine-to-five lifestyle. These are just general tendencies, though, and there are lots and lots of of exceptions.
Other types of lawyers:
- Associates in firms, i.e. lawyers who work for law firms but aren't partners. In the "biglaw" firms, most (often around 75%) of the lawyers are associates. They're paid a salary by the firm, and work under the supervision of partners for the firm's clients. The typical pattern is that young lawyers work as associates for some number of years, and then are offered a partnership (or, more often, not).
- Solo practitioners, who are independent lawyers who aren't part of a firm, and do work for clients for fees. I suppose you could consider these to be partners in extremely small firms.
- Government lawyers.
Just as an aside, "corporate lawyer" is usually used to refer, in a general sense, to the type of work the lawyer does, not who he works for. It's used fairly loosely, but generally refers to someone who works on business transactions, as opposed to litigation or other specialities.
Divorce, Children And Lawyer Strategies?
I Filed For Divorce This Last Monday, My Wife Will Be Served This Coming Friday. My Lawyer Instructed Me To Keep All Commnication With My Wife With Text Messages Or E-Mails. He Instructed Me To Send An E-Mail Yesterday To My Wife Telling Her That I Would Stop By My House Today To Pick Up My Little Girl, Take Her With Me, And Have Her Spend The Night With Me And That I Would Take Her To School Tomorrow. The Instructions Were That If She Did Not Answer To Re-Send The Same E-Mail Today Which I Did. I Still Have Gotten Any Answer And I Must Contact My Lawyer Before I Go Over There. Does Anyone Has Any Idea What Is My Attorney Strategy Here, And What Is He Trying To Accomplish? I Left My Home Voluntarily To Avoid My Wife
Violence Towards Me. Please Help.
Your lawyer said to email her? Okay but hun what happens when she doesn't answer or doesn't check the email?
The lawyer sits at his laptop to much and must get responses immediately and thinks the world is typical of email every second. That is not reality!!!
Text messages she doesn't have to answer either, so therefore you won't see your daughter. WOW! i would call the lawyer back and say NO! I want responses within a reasonable time and with emails and texts it is not being done. Tell him or her that you have to call her. RECORD the conversation, don't let her know though!
If need be, have BOTH lawyers talk if she won't respond to you. I had to do that as well. It worked! I did what my lawyer said as far as that and so did he. Less headaches, less heart ache for our child as well. I hope it all works out and that this precious child of yours is safe and happy.
How Much Do You Think A Legal Assistant/Paralegal/Office Manager Should Be Making On A One Attorney Law Firm? Experience Of 7 Years.?
Working in a oneman firm is the long slow death by ducks. You work all the over time, all the jobs, you never can count on a day off or a vacation. I would want to know what he billed last 3 years and then I would ask for about 20%.
Traveling To Bermuda With A Felony Charge?
This Is Actually For A Relative Of Mine. He Was Curious If You Are Able To Travel To Bermuda With A Felony Charge, He Is On Probation But He Is Only Planning A Trip. Please Only Respond If You'Ve Had Experience With This Situation. We Are Working On Calling Multiple Places Right Now, But Would Like To Know Others Experiences With This Situation. I Know You Can Be Denied Into Canada For Felonies, But I Was Not Sure If Bermuda Had The Same Policies Over Immigration And Border Control. Please Let Me Know, That Would Be Really Great. I Look Forward To Hearing All Your Great Answers.
Also Kind Of Question Just For Me And Anybody Else Searching These Questions!
Are You Allowed To Enter Bermuda With A Old Warrant For Your Arrest, Around 5 Years Old?
We do not use the term "felony change" here in Canada, we refer to those types of offenses as "indictable offenses", therefore I assume you are writing from the US. I was employed in the legal field here in Canada for forty years. You did not specify whether your friend intended to travel by air or by cruise ship. The question about the old warrant is a slightly different legal conundrum. I will attempt to answer both matters together. If a person is taking an aircraft from mainland USA to Bermuda, the pre-screening process at the airport verifies each passenger's status with regard to legal matters/criminal records etc. All names are processed through police computers to determine whether or not if the airline will allow "Mr. X", or, any undesirable passengers will be boarding.
I can assure you that both the felony conviction and the very recent (not "old") warrant from a mere five years ago will both surface...meaning...the airport security will know in advance about both criminal convictions (you did not specify whether or not the "old warrant" was as a result of a minor criminal charge or a small claims court warrant for deliberately failing to attend court on a court date that the person was personally served and yet chose to ignore etc.) no matter what generated the warrant, the airport security staff will view it as "a criminal matter" even though it may have only been a minor criminal offense such as shop lifting at 17 years of age or causing a disturbance 5 years ago etc. Each of the two matters will perk their interest. The question really boils down to; will they allow your friend to board for a short trip to Bermuda (in spite of the criminal record) or not? I cannot answer that. If airport security could verify that the person is definitely only going on a four-day trip and is likely to return to the US then may allow the person to fly (but they will "flag his name") and will most likely monitor him more closely by, as an example, conducting a more detailed baggage search/interview upon his return. They do have some discretion however. Cruise line security is similar. All cruise ship passengers must register in advance and the list of passengers is referred to legally as "the manifest". Again, every name is run through police computers before embarkation and in the case of a "loop cruises" where you depart from New York, head straight to Bermuda and sail right back to New York 7 days later, they may use their discretion to allow a person with a felony conviction to board and may also allow the person with the "alive-and-well" recent outstanding warrant to board a looped cruise or, in the alternative, the person with the outstanding may be arrested at the port of New York and they will then be sent back, in custody, to the jurisdiction which issued the warrant or, the authorities may use some discretion and allow/permit the person to board
the cruise ship and make the arrest after the person disembarks back in New York 7 days later by flagging his/her name.
