3 Ways To Know You've Picked The Best Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to pass through a legal court system, particularly if you lack confidence inside your legal team. Allow me to share three important methods to recognize that you've hired the proper lawyer: 1. They Focus On Your Type Of Case Legal requirements is normally tricky and therefore requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. If you want an attorney, look for one who works with the matter you're facing. Even though a family member or friend recommends you employ a firm they know, should they don't have got a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. When your attorney is an expert, especially in the trouble you're facing, you know you've hired the best one. 2. The Lawyer Carries A Winning Record According to the circumstances, it may be hard to win an instance, specifically if the team working for you has little to no experience. Look for practices who have won numerous cases that apply to yours. Although this is no guarantee that you just case is going to be won, it provides you with a far greater shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In case the attorney you've chosen takes enough time to listen to your concerns and respond to your inquiries, you've probably hired the right choice. No matter how busy these are or how small your concerns seem off their perspective, it's critical that they respond to you inside a caring and timely manner. From the aim of view of a regular citizen who isn't informed about the judicial system, court cases could be pretty scary you require updates and to feel as if you're part of the solution. Some attorneys are simply more suitable to both you and your case than the others. Ensure you've hired the best team for your personal circumstances, to actually can placed the matter behind you as soon as possible. Faith with your legal representative is the initial step to winning any case.

Recent Grad W/ Ba In English: Advice About Law School?
I Am A Very Conflicted Recent Graduate With An Enlish Major. I Realized That There Is Not Much To Do With A Ba In Eng. And From Research Online And Heresay I Am Leaning Towards Entering Law School. However, I Have Always Been Interested In Fashion And Magazines But I Want A Well Paying Job In The End (Student Loans!). I Also Don'T Live An Area (I Live In Connecticut) That Has A Lot Of Opportunities For Someone Interested In Fashion. What Should I Do? I Need Serious Advice, Feedback, Personal Experience. Just Serious Responses Please. Thanks.
Law school is very expensive and it would take you awhile to get through school and you have to pass the bar. There is this really good fashion school in NYC. You should probably think about relocating to somewhere where fashion is big like California or NYC or Florida. Its a very good price. Other fashion schools are way expensive. You should check it out.
You should go to the careerbuilder website and see about jobs in the fashion. Usually to work in fashion you have to have some type of work/ or school experience in fashion.Unless that is your very very knowledgeable about fashion.
Good luck! I hope you find something!
Is This A Normal Contract For Attorney'S Fees In A Settlement?
We Are Filing A Lawsuit Against A Big Pharm Company Related To Our Son'S Birth Defect. The Attorney Sent Over A Contract And It States That The Attorney Will Receive 35% Of Any Settlement (I'Ve Read That This Is Pretty Close To Standard) And &Quot;Client Understands That The Client Is Giving Up At This Time To The Attorneys The Amount Stated Above, And That Such Percentage Is Of The The Total Recovery Or Settlement Before Any Costs, Expenses, Or Disbursements Are Deducted And Client Understands That All Costs, Expenses, And Disbursements Are Paid Out Of The Client'S Portion Of The Recovery, And Not Out Of The Attorneys' Portion.&Quot;
Does This Mean That After They Take 35% I'Ll Still Have A Large Bill For Their Services? Is This A Standard For Personal Injury Claims? Any Advice Would Be Appreciated.
The attorney will EITHER work for a percentage of any settlement OR for a fixed or hourly fee. That said, court fees and expenses related to the case are in addition to the attorney's 35%. You MAY have a bill above the 35%, but it will not be for their services. I suggest discussing likely fees with the attorney BEFORE signing the contract. If they can't/won't explain this to your satisfaction, you shouldn't hire them.
How To Become A Family Lawyer?
I Want To Become A Lawyer But Under Family Law. So How Would I Go To School And What Would I Study So I Could Become That
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.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. 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.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
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: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
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!!!<<<
Even if you do finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), 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 in TODAY's job market!!
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.
>>>>>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.
**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 future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several attorneys from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing attorneys is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know a practicing lawyer, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many attorneys. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities. <<<<<
Read 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."
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.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)

Mediation For Personal Injury?
I Was In A Car Wreck In Feb. I Had About 14,000 In Medical Bills. In March I Hired A Personal Injury Lawyer I Found Online. Last Friday The Judge Ordered Us To Mediation. My Lawyer Said That This Is Typical, And It'S No Big Deal. How Does This Type Of Mediation Work? I Thought Mediation Was Only For Divorce?
It is a very common misconception that mediation is "only for divorce." In truth, mediation is for virtually all types of conflicts that arise between two (2) or more parties.
Personal Injury mediation is a bit different from other types of mediation. One of the core elements of mediation is self-determination. By that I mean, the parties to a dispute come together to discuss solutions, among themselves. The mediator helps guide overall process.
PI cases are a bit odd, whereas in many situations one of the original parties is not present in the mediation. Thus, one of the primary aspects of mediation is undermined from the start.
Insurance companies typically only send their attorney(s) and/or claims adjusters to PI mediations. And for them, protecting the best interests of their side of a pending action and/or lawsuit is often "boiled down" to a simple mathematical equation. (Speaking generally.)
The reason is that Mediation and ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) has become so popular with regard to personal injury disputes, is that mediation offers a confidential, efficient and cost-effective solution to disputes, for all the parties involved.
Most of the time, PI mediation is a "direct course" to the finish line. For example... let's say you and your lawyer determine the "most" you could recover through course of trial for your injuries is $100,000, under the law. For this example, let's say you're realistically looking at $50,000, if all goes well in trial. Mediation will likely be working with the same figures, math and calculations of recovery.
However, mediation has some distinct advantages...
A. You'll be heard. More specifically, your emotional elements, opinions and thoughts will be heard by the other party(s) directly. Whereas in a trial, "opinions" and other emotional considerations are heavily restricted pursuant the rules of evidence.
B. You control the process. The parties to a mediation determine the mediation's direction and outcome, with guidance from the mediator. In a trial, your entire fate is handled entirely by the court, the judge and jury (if applicable).
C. You know "when." With a trial, the outcome is always in question, and the conclusion is a moving target. Court dates are often set months in advance, and get postponed on a regular basis. Many PI trials take years to conclude. With mediation, you know exactly what date and time you'll be able to be heard, control the process and likely bring the conflict to a close.
Best of luck to you.
