Finding An Experienced Lawyer Irrespective of what your legal needs are you will see that there are many lawyers in your area that advertise that they are experts in your kind of case. This may make the process of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, in the event you follow the tips below you will be able to restrict your quest to the right one in very little time. The first step is to produce a selection of the lawyers which are listed in your area specializing in your needs. While you are making this list you should only include those you have an effective vibe about depending on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down through taking a bit of time evaluating their site. There you should be able to find the number of years they are practicing and several general information about their success rates. At this point your list should have shrunken further to people that you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate level of experience. You need to then spend some time to look up independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure to see the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The data in the reviews will give you a concept of the way that they interact with their clientele and the time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, you should talk to a minimum of the final three lawyers that have the credentials you would like. This will provide you with some time to actually evaluate how interested they can be in representing you and the case. It really is imperative that you follow many of these steps to ensure that you find someone containing the proper degree of experience to get you the very best outcome.

Lawyers: Do You Think A Layperson'S Giving Legal Advice On Ya Constitutes The Unauthorized Practice Of Law
And Bonus Round: When A Lawyer Weighs In With Legal Advice On Ya, Is An Attorney-Client Relationship Created? And Is The Attorney-Client Privilege Waived?
Anyone Else Find This A Little Worrisome? In California, The Unauthorized Practice Of Law Is Illegal (Cal. Business & Professions Code, Sec. 6125 & 6126). I'M Guessing It'S The Same In The Other 49 States.
My understanding of a legal contract, which is required to give legal advice, is that even as little as a dollar exchanged is hiring, and any advice after that is legal advice. Since no one on here asks for money/goods/services in exchange for their advice, then they aren't practicing law, they are participating in an open forum.
As far as attorney-client privilege goes, if there is more than just you and the attorney who can hear it (or see it), then there is no privilege. In some cases, it even applies to their legal staff, which is why support staff usually are only given the information that they need to research or prepare, they are not given the client's statements.
Help Please? Legal Advice?
I Am Nineteen Years Old. My Boyfriend Is Seventeen. He Will Be Eighteen In Six Months And I Will Be Twenty In A Month And A Half. I Live With Him, However, I Sleep In A Different Room. Is This Illegal?
First of all, it's legal to live together. However, if you're having sex, then no. You both have to be 18+.
An exception would be if you were 18 then you could have sex with a 17yo, or if you're still in high school.
You probably won't get into trouble, but you need to know the possibility is there. In 6 months when he's 18, you'll be perfectly legal.
Is Driving While Under The Influence Of Ecstasy A Felony In Michigan?
Under Michigan law, it is illegal to drive:
•While intoxicated, or impaired, by alcohol, illegal drugs, and some prescribed medications.
•With a bodily alcohol content of 0.08 or more. (This crime is one of the driving while intoxicated offenses.)
•With a bodily alcohol content of 0.17 or more. (This "High BAC" crime is one of the driving while intoxicated offenses.)
•With any amount of cocaine or a Schedule 1 controlled substance in your body. (For more information about Schedule 1 drugs, see section 7212 of the Michigan Public Health Code; MCL 333.7212.)
Schedule I drugs, substances, or chemicals are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Schedule I drugs are the most dangerous drugs of all the drug schedules with potentially severe psychological or physical dependence. Some examples of Schedule I drugs are:
heroin, lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), marijuana (cannabis), 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy), methaqualone, and peyote
Is It Legal For Insurance Companies To Require That You Have A Certain Amount For Personal Bodily Injury?
Coverage Before They Can Give You An Insurance Quote.
Insurance companies don't set minimums, but the state does. The insurance company can't sell you a policy that has lower minimums than required by the state.
Carrying minimum limits on insurance is false economy. If you get in an accident, and you cause $50,000 in damage, and your insurance is only good for $25,000, then you will owe the balance out of your pocket (or future earnings.)
Where Can I Find California Inheritance Laws?
My Wife And I Are In The 80Th. We Want To Deed Our All-Paid Residence To One Of Our Sons? Can We Just Deed To Him And His Wife? Any Implications Involved? The Property Is Valued Between 3 To 4 Hundred Thousand Dollars, About Fifty Years Old..
Yes, you can but I urge you to see a Tax Attorney and an Elder Law Attorney before you do so.
If you give your house to your son, you also give him your basis cost for the property. Since you have had the property for 50 years, I imagine that you paid under $25,000 for the home. If, in the future your son sold the home for $375,000, your son would owe Capital Gains Tax on the difference between your basis cost and the selling price. In other words he would owe 15% of the gain of $350,000 or $52,500. With inheritance comes a "stepped up basis" which means that the heirs' basis cost becomes the value of the asset on the date of death of the benefactor. If you son inherits the $375,000 house and sells it for $375,000 then he owes no Capital Gain Tax because there is no gain.
If your purpose is to save on Probate costs (which in California are set by law) you should consider a Revocable Trust or Living Trust. Given the value of your house at $400K and with other assets of $100K for a total Estate Value of $500,000, your Probate would cost would be $13,000. A Trust would cost no more than $5,000 and that would be for a very complicated estate. Having a Trust avoids Probate entirely and ensures a quick and orderly transfer of the estate to the heir.
If your purpose is to avoid paying for medical care for yourself and have Medicare and MediCal pay for your care by transferring your assets so that you are indigent and cannot pay yourself, then be aware that there is a 60 month (5 year) look back period by Medicare and MediCal. What that means is that if you do transfer assets then you are not eligible to receive MediCal or Medicare assistance for 5 years after the transfer date.
Basically it is almost always better to inherit than to receive an asset as a gift. It is also almost always better to use a Trust to transfer your assets to your heirs than to go through the delays and costs of Probate. If you get a Trust made for you by an Attorney, it will save your spouse, your estate, and your heirs possibly tens of thousands in unnecessary taxes and fees. It will cost you a few thousand, but in the long run, it is much less expensive.
Entertainment Attorney? ?
I Wanna Shoot A Demo/Pilot Thing For A Sitcom I Wrote. I Was Told I Should Get An Entertainment Attorney. What's That And Why Do I Need It?
An entertainment attorney is an attorney who specializes in entertainment law. Usually they work in either contracts or litigation.
I'm guessing the person told you that you need an entertainment attorney to write up contracts for the people you will employ to work on your demo/pilot thing. If you're in a big city, like LA, a good entertainment attorney will cost you a minimum of $200 an hour, the best go for much more.
