Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer Irrespective of what your legal needs are you will see that there are many lawyers in your town that advertise which they specialize in your kind of case. This could make the procedure of finding one with significant amounts of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the following it will be easy to narrow down your quest off to the right one out of almost no time. Step one is to create a list of the lawyers which can be listed in your area focusing on your needs. When you are causeing this to be list you should only include those that you may have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down by using a little while evaluating their site. There you should be able to find the number of years they are practicing plus some general information regarding their success rates. At this moment your list should have shrunken further to people which you felt had professional websites plus an appropriate amount of experience. You need to then make time to look up independent reviews of every attorney. Be sure to browse the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The information in the reviews gives you a solid idea of the way that they connect with their customers and the time they invest into each case that they are working on. Finally, you will need to talk to at the very least the final three lawyers which have the credentials you would like. This will provide you with time to truly evaluate how interested they may be in representing your case. It can be important to follow all of these steps to actually find someone containing the right level of experience to help you the very best outcome.

With The Premise Of Limited Liability, Are People More Or Less Inclined To Buy Corporate Bonds? Why?
There is a balance of risk and reward that each investor has.
Higher risk means a chance for higher reward, and if the scales balance for the investor, a trade purchase is made to attempt to make a profit.
If you are suggesting lower risk because of limited liability, then the reward possibilities will probably be less as well.
Now you should be able to answer this question based on what human nature suggests?
(Hint: Seniors invest. Traders invest. New-comers invest. Who would be happy with this premise?)
To John S. Criminal Law Attorney?
The Person In Question Was Aloud By The Parents To Be With Their Son. He Was 4 Days From Being 18 And Both Of Them Were In Love. It Is My Best Friend And He Was Charged And Convicted For A Sexual Crime. He Now Has To Register As A Sex Offender. He Has Been My Best Friend For 12 Years. He Is Gay. The Charge Was 'Penetration With An Appendage&Quot;. He Is The Nicest Guy In The World And Is No Longer Aloud To Be Around My 2 Girls That Consider Him An Uncle. He Is Very Trusting And Very Intelligent. He Can'T Even Own A Pet. I Am So Distraught To Try To Get Some Of These Parole Rules Dropped Somehow. He Is Very Depressed About This Whole Thing. It Would Be Great If I Could Get A Reply About This From You.
Probably nothing you can do.
Like it or not and for whatever reason, your friend confessed to a crime and served his time.
He now has to live with the consequences of his actions.
You're not an involved party in the Court process and what you want to do would directly violate the Court Orders made during his sentencing - the Court won't even listen to your reasons for wanting to do this because it cannot sanction a violation of its Orders.
Keep pushing it and you'll be looking at contempt of Court charges yourself.
If your friend can hold on for the balance of his probation and 5-10 years after that, he can seek a pardon, which may remove the restrictions from his life.
But he has to show complete compliance first - that's the rules.
I know you mean well, but there are reasons why it's done this way - you don't KNOW that he's not guilty - you only know his side of the story. There are lots of cases where the person was really guilty and just wouldn't admit it. Some of these people go on to commit crimes again, often against the kids of the people that tried to help them.
I'm not saying he would, and I won't say that he won't.
I AM stating that the Court, acting as society's agent, has decided that the risk isn't worth taking.

Warning! Jobs in the field of Law are drying up FAST!! This is not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING vocational field. Many reasons. THE main reason?......We simply have WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals - we have a GLUT!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Even IF you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, 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. And the competition is FIERCE!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is SATURATED with WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. AND the schools continue to recruit and churn out even MORE Legal Professionals.............
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
In 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 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 field of HEALTHCARE! <THIS is where the jobs are! and scholarships!

Do I Need To Cfontact The Ca State Bar For A Refund From My Family Law Attorney'S Office?
1. They Switched Attorney'S Handling My Case And The Only Way I Found Out Was Because I Overheard The Children'S Attorney Talking About It With My Ex Husband'S Attorney In The Lobby Outside The Courtroom.
2. I Went To A Scheduled Appointment Last Thursday At 4Pm And Left At 5Pm....Never Seen By The Attorney As She Was With Another Client And Apparently Did Not Know/Care That Another Scheduled Appointment Was There. Maybe She Could Have Came Out Andd Asked To Reschedule? She Did Not.
3. I Asked To Be Rescheduled When I Could Be The First Person She Sees Of The Day As I Cannot Afford To Take Time Off Work Again And Wait For Nothing,....I Have Not Heard From Them.
4. My Ex Was Ordered To Pay The Children'S Attorney By The End Of May Of This Year. He Has Not As Of Today And When We Went To Court On The 10Th Of June, His Attorney Assured Everyone That He Would Pay And She Agreed To Give Him More Time. No One Gave Me Any Fuking Thing Ever And It Sucks That I Have To Be The Responsible Broke One All The Dam Time. And When I Was 2 Weeks Late Paying My Attorney Because Of A Family Emergency They Threatened To Drop My Case.
If Hindsight Were 20/20...I Would Have Let Them. But I Paid As Agreed. They Are Not Holding Up To Their Responsibility.
No. You can file an ethics complaint for the firm's treatment of you but the only way to get your money back is to sue the firm.
I Seeing A Divorce Attorney This Morning For A Consultation?
Do I Fill Her In On All The &Quot;Bad Stuff&Quot; That My Ex Could Use Against Me So He Can'T Have It As Ammo?
Also, What Should I Expect From This Consultation? What All Does She Need To Know.
As a divorce lawyer, I always want to know everything good or bad and even if it is not totally true, I really need to know what the other side will say about you. To be honest, the bad stuff is rarely as bad as people think and it is always better to be informed than to be surprised. If you think your spouse has seen an attorney, let your layer know that as well.
Bring every bit of financial information you can find. Pay stubs and tax returns are vital. The attorney needs to know what you will be interested in fighting for and what you care about Try not to get bogged down in who gets the toaster, but think about the house, the retirement funds, the cars and the big stuff. Bring information about your debts as well. Organized is better if possible
If you have kids, that should be the focus. Begin to think about parenting time and decision making. Also think about who may be able to testify about your parenting and that of your spouse.
You also need to be ready to ask about the lawyer's qualifications and whether this is the right one for you. Does he specialize in family law? How often does she practice in the Court you will file in? Does he settle more cases or try more? What experts does he expect to use? Does she return phone calls? Also ask about billing and costs, as these cases can get expensive.
Your divorce lawyer will end up knowing more about you than your mother, so you need to be very comfortable with him or her. If not, look for another one. Good luck, this is always hard.
Child Custody W/O Attorney?
I Have Court Hearing Tomorrow Morning For Custody Of My 11Month Old Daughter. I Couldnt Afford An Attorney So Iam Going To Represent Myself. Iam Very Nervous..Any Advise Please???? This Is The Thing Or Court Date Was Set For July 2011 But He, My Babys Father Went To The Court House And Asked For An Emergency Hearing So Now We Have The Hearing On Friday And We Have Not Even Gone To A Mediator..What Do You Think Will Happen??? I Really Wanted To See A Mediator Before We Speak To A Judge! Any Advise???..We Wouldnt Of Been Going Through This If He Were Mature Enough And And Respected Our Verbal Agreement.
If you BOTH agree to a mediator, then that is a possibility. A lawyer won't be granted to you in a civil matter. The child will be granted a lawyer. (a guardian-lit em) to look out for the child's best interests. If the judge granted the emergency hearing, there must be something a little out of whack. Your best best is going through the mediator and working something out with the child's father. Judges can be harsh.
