Finding An Experienced Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will notice that there are loads of lawyers in your area that advertise that they can specialize in your type of case. This will make the procedure of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below it will be possible to narrow down your pursuit off to the right one in almost no time. The initial step is to generate a list of the lawyers that happen to be listed in the area specializing in your situation. While you are causeing this to be list you should only include those that you have an excellent vibe about according to their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down if you take some time evaluating their internet site. There you should certainly find just how many years they have been practicing and a few general specifics of their success rates. At this point your list must have shrunken further to those that you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate amount of experience. You should then take time to look up independent reviews of each and every attorney. Be sure to look at the reviews rather than just depending on their overall rating. The information in the reviews will provide you with a concept of the direction they connect with their clients and how much time they invest into each case they are working on. Finally, you will need to meet with at least the very last three lawyers which may have the credentials you are looking for. This provides you with time to genuinely evaluate how interested they are in representing you and your case. It really is crucial for you to follow many of these steps to actually find a person which has the right measure of experience to get you the perfect outcome.

Who Do Legal Aid Organizations Help?
And How Do You Find One? I Have A Friend Who Doesn'T Have Much Money But Is In Desperate Need Of Legal Help. I Always Assumed There Was A Legal Aid Office Somewhere For Poor People.
It depends on the type of legal problem your friend has.
Law schools usually have legal clinics that are run by legal interns and supervised by law professors.
Many counties have legal aid offices. There are also Housing Justice Programs, CLEAR programs, and a number of others.
When the economy is in the toilet, it becomes much harder to find pro bono legal assistance. Fewer attorneys are able to volunteer because they are having a harder time finding paying clients. Donations going into those legal aid clinics decrease. And, in this kind of economy, more people are poor and low income.
I Live In Nw Iowa Are There Any Lawyers That Handle Child Custody Cases Besides Iowa Legal Aid That Take Pymts?
I Received Divorce Papers Saturday From Him And Found Out That I'M Supposed To Have Court On Friday To Determine Temp Issues (Him Trying To Get My Kids Temp N Pay Child Support @ The Same Time). So I'Ve Been Calling Around And With Out A Huge Retainer I Cant Seem To Find A Lawyer. I'Ve Tried Ia Legal Aid But Since There Was No Abuse I Dont Qualify For Emergency Assistance. So I'M Filing A Motion To Continue But I Still Dont Have The Money For A Lawyer Period! So Now What? I Dont Understand This Stuff To Be Able To Represent Myself; What Affidavits I'M Supposed To Have And File. I Have No Idea Why He'S Trying To Take Them So I Cant File Any Rebuttles. Any Help Regarding Divorce Would Be Great. The Process...The Papers That I Need To Get...How It All Works. Thanks To All Who Have Info.
Since you've been served with notice of the divorce and you're having a hearing so quickly, I'm assuming it is either a hearing for temporary orders or a hearing for a temporary restraining order. If you intend to get an attorney, the motion for continuance is a good idea. If they grant a continuance they will just extend any temporary restraining order against you if there even is one. During that time go talk to some lawyers. Most of them, just about all of them, offer free initial consultations. That's how they reel you in. Just call them up ask them if the initial visit is free and make an appointment. DO NOT mention the fact that you have no money! They'll at least give you a little free advice and they may be willing to work out some kind of payment plan with them. Lots of lawyers would want to assess a client first, see if they're the gainfully employed with a steady income, responsible, pays bills on time sort of person and then they might be willing to work with them. Some attorneys even accept collateral like property deeds or car titles as security for payment. It's worth a try.
If worse comes to worse and you are unable to retain the services of an attorney here is the most important thing you can do....Whatever papers you were served with, read them. Read every single word of them. If you have to read them a thousand times to understand what they say, DO IT! If you have to get a friend or relative to read them with you and help you understand, DO IT! The papers you were served with in all likelihood contain instructions for you to do certain things by a date proper like file an answer to the petition or show up for a hearing. Do not sign anything unless you are sure of what you are signing!
Secondly, you'll have to represent yourself at the upcoming hearing if you have no attorney. Once again, you should enlist the aid of a friend or relative and have them come with you. You can bring as many people as you wish. This is important, you and your friends TAKE NOTES of what transpires at the hearing and everything the judge says. If things are said that you do not understand or or not clear- SPEAK UP!!!! If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask them! I know it's hard for some people but don't be shy! You will be in court pro se (representing yourself) so they should understand that and work with you.
Additionally, if you can't afford an attorney because perhaps as a condition of the marriage you had no income because you stayed home to raise the kids and your husband is the one with all the marital financial assets, you can ask the court to have him pay your legal fees. You might request that at the upcoming hearing. Depending on your circumstances they may grant your request. It is standard operating procedures in just about all divorce cases for each side to request that the other side pay their attorney's fees.
I Don’T Have Enough Money To Hire An Attorney. Can I Settle A Car Accident Case Without Legal Assistance?
If I Figure In A Car Accident Here In Denver, And I Don’T Have Enough Money To Hire An Attorney, Is It Possible For Me To Settle This Case Alone Without Legal Assistance?
It is possible, but not advisable. First of all, when settling a legal issue, you have to document the incident (including the date, time, place, and the people in the area). If possible, take photos of the incident to serve as evidence. A medical examination can also help, especially if you got a serious injury. One of the more difficult tasks is dealing with your insurance company. At this point, I’ll be frank with you: better look for an attorney. There are attorneys who don’t ask for high payment terms. Some insurance companies make it difficult for their beneficiaries to receive compensation for the damages they incurred. You would be better off having a lawyer dealing with them.
I Need Legal Advice :My Co-Worker Is Discriminated Against By Our Manager And Is On Grounds For Termination?
The Reason Why She Might Be Terminated Is Because A Supervisor Told Her That Someone Was Stealing So My Co-Worker Went Outside To Check And Went To The Lady'S Car And Noticed It Was The Wrong Lady And Told Her She Was Very Sorry That She Made A Mistake. Mind You She Says She Never Accused Her Of Stealing, Or Checked Her Bags Or Even Made Her Get Out Of Her Car. She Simply Went Up To Her Car And Saw That This Lady Had Bags Of Stuff So She Let It Go. Now This Lady Freaked Out Called Corporate On My Co-Worker Wants Wants Her Fired And She'S Being Very Persistent. The District Manager Came In And Told My Co-Worker That It'S Out Of His Hands At This Point And The Lawyers Of Our Corporation Have To Handle It. She Made Everything Into A Big Deal And Told Them My Co-Worker Almost Got Her Fired And Accused Her Of Stealing. Which My Co-Worker Says Is False. The Problem Is She'S Most Likely To Get Fired And This Whole Situation Is My Co-Workers Word Against A Customers. I Was Just Wondering What Are My Co-Workers Rights As Far As Getting Fired? The Only Thing I'M Worried About Is That She'S 63 And Has Health Problems And Literally Cannot Survive Without A Job. My Manager Has Also Been Treating Her Very Badly By Cutting Her Hours And By Basically Bullying Her And Threatening To Fire Her Constantly. Right Now My Co-Worker Is Living With Out Heat And Basically Going Without Many Necessities Because Her Hours Have Been Cut Drastically.
From My Experience She Is One Of The Most Hardworking, Loyal Employees Of This Company And Does Not Deserve To Be Fried Or Tormented By My Manager. She Is An Honest Person And I Know That The Incident With The Customer Was An Honest Mistake And This Whole Thing Is Completely Unfair. I'M Doing Some Legal Research For Her Mainly Because She Doesn'T Have Money For A Lawyer And Because She Doesn'T Have A Computer. I Just Want To Make Sure She Has Enough Money For Her Basic Necessities Including Her Living Saving Medications. I Really Want To Help Her, She Is Such An Amazing Person And Does Not Deserve To Go Through This Heartache. Someone Please Help
My suggestion is that you contact 9 to 5, a national organization for working women. If she has some evidence of age (or other) discrimination, that would be helpful to her case.
