Finding A Skilled Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will notice that there are countless lawyers in the area that advertise they specialize in your type of case. This could make the process of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, in the event you follow the following it will be possible to limit your pursuit off to the right one out of very little time. The first task is to create a selection of the lawyers that are listed in your area specializing in your position. While you are making this list you need to only include those that you may have an effective vibe about based upon their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by using some time evaluating their site. There you will be able to find just how many years they are practicing and some general information about their success rates. At this stage your list must have shrunken further to people that you just felt had professional websites along with an appropriate amount of experience. You must then take the time to search for independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure you browse the reviews instead of just counting on their overall rating. The info inside the reviews provides you with a solid idea of the way that they interact with their clients and how much time they invest into each case that they are focusing on. Finally, you should talk with no less than the very last three lawyers which may have the credentials you are looking for. This gives you enough time to truly evaluate how interested they are in representing both you and your case. It is crucial for you to follow every one of these steps to actually find someone that has the best level of experience to get you the very best outcome.

Social Security Disability First Step; Find A Lawyer?
I Need To Apply For Ssdi For An Elder Family Member. I'M Confused If I Should Just Get A Lawyer Right From The Start, Or Fill Out The Application Online And Supply All The Information Myself..
What Is The Benefit Of Getting A Lawyer To Begin The Process?
There is no benefit to having an attorney unless a person is at the hearing level. People who have filed a request for a hearing have a greater chance of being approved if they have an attorney who is knowledgeable about social security law as it applies to disabilities. They can have valuable insight as to the vocational aspects of the process.
A person should file their own claim, the reconsideration and the request for a hearing and only THEN get themselves an attorney. Before the hearing it is simply a matter of filling out forms which only the disabled person knows the answers to. NOTE: About 35% of initial claims are approved so obviously not everyone gets denied. About 40% to 60% are approved who go to a hearing - on the higher end with an attorney.
So go to ssa.gov and file the disability claim online. However, if denied I strongly suggest that you and your disabled family member go to the office to file the appeals and do it as soon as you get the denial letters - if that is the case. The process is long enough without a person dragging it out even further by waiting until the last minute to file appeals (you have 60 days in which to file an appeal) and taking care of the appeals via the mail drags the process out even further. At least if you go to the office to file the appeals you know when the processing of the appeal begins - the day it is filed. Otherwise who knows how long it will sit on the claims reps desk before they have time to work it and get it moving to the offices it needs to go to for processing.
And for your information here is social security's definition of a disability - A person who has a medical condition so severely disabling that they are incapable of working and earning $1040 a month in ANY type of work activity (not just what they've been doing) and is expected to last for at least 12 months.
If it is necessary to file appeals social security is open 9am-3pm, Mon-Fri except Wednesday afternoons (9am-12pm) and national holidays.

I Understand That Attorneys Perform Title Searches And Make A Title Judgment/Title Assessment.

Be An Insurance Broker/Rep), Or Have An Actual Insurance Company,But All Of These Are Possible To Do. What Is The Normal Situation With Real Estate Attorneys And Title Insurance?
the attorney has to be approved to do title opinions for title insurance companies. there are required classes and seminars and insurance the attorney must have before they are cleared to do the title check and opinion for the title insurance company. Then the title company issues the policy.
Help With Questions To Ask To A Lawyer?
When I Grow Up I Want To Become A Lawyer And My Grandma Set Up And Appointment With One Of Her Friends Son Who Is A Lawyer, And He Wants Me To Go Talk To Him, He Said To Ask Him Questions But Im So Excited That I Dont Even Know What To Ask, Lol Plase Help Me, I Would Really Appreciate It.Thank You So Much,
Ask him what he would do differently if he could do it over again. For instance, is there a course of study he didn't pursue that would've been helpful?
Ask him when he decided to become an attorney. As a child? In college? Then ask why. Because he wanted to earn a lot of money? Because he wanted to help people in trouble? The answer will depend on what kind of law he practices, but it will give you the general idea of the kinds of things you'll want to consider, depending on your own priorities.
Ask him what he would've wanted to know at your age.
Ask him how he paid for his schooling.
And, for sure, ask him what he likes the most and the least about being an attorney. :)
Write down any important Qs you want to make sure you get answered, but be sure and ask as you go along - whatever comes up.
When you leave, shake his hand and thank him for his time. Be sure and thank your grandmother. :) How wonderful for you to have someone so supportive!
Is Lawyer An Honorable Profession?
Advice from another out of work Attorney who can’t pay his student loans…..
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. Many people today think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. We simply have WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals - we have an absolute GLUT!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Regarding being a Paralegal: Paralegals can be found in many types of businesses. Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law want employees with BACHELORS degrees from traditional universities/colleges. Those "certificates" you sometimes see advertised, aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally SCAMS.
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 <THIS would be your competition. 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. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are 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 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
Need Good Cheap Lawyer For Son Case?
Someone Say He Shot A Man
You maybe asking for the impossible when it comes to "a cheap and good. lawyer". However, maybe I can explain the process a little which may help you choose the right lawyer who is reasonably priced.
Only deal with an AV rated lawyer this is the highest rating a lawyer can receive. An AV rating is a significant accomplishment and a testament to the fact that a lawyer's peers rank him or her at the highest level of professional excellence. A lawyer must be admitted to the bar for 10 years or more to receive an AV rating.
Call several law firms in your area and ask for a consultation. All good lawyers offer a free initial consultation. Ask them questions on how they would defend your son's case. Ask how many similar cases have they defended successfully. When negotiating a fee, ask if they will accept a reasonable down payment and to spread the balance over time. Typically the rule of dumb is 40% percent down initially, 15% at arraignment, 15% pre-trial motions and 30% prior to commencement of trial. (3 weeks before trial starts) Remember even if at the last moment a deal is struck the lawyer has already spent several weeks preparing for trial.
After you have interviewed a few lawyers select the best candidate you would like to represent your son and discuss it with him but remember it’s his life and he should have the last say.
Do not under-estimate the importance of having the lawyer you want at the arraignment if possible. An enormous amount can be learned about a case by and during the arraignment. The importance of the issue of bail can not be overlooked either. The arraignment may seem like only a few minutes, but they can be among the most important few minutes of the entire case. A lot can be uncovered !
At the arraignment / bond hearing the judge will make a decision that may well have lasting implications in the case. It makes sense, then, to have a lawyer early who will be with the case later on and who will make the defense arguments at trial. Sometimes, a great deal can be learned about the case informally from a simple arraignment.
Below I have included links to AV rated criminal defense lawyer listings and the step by step arrest thru arraignment process.

Divorce Decree Florida?
How Long Does It Take To Get A Divorce Decree After The Final Trial In Florida?
A final decree of divorce ends the marriage relationship as of the date of the decree. The remarriage of either party to the divorce to a third person is prohibited for 60 days following the decree. A divorce decree may also indicate whether the guilty party may ever remarry. However, if there is no such prohibition in the decree against the defendant's remarriage, any marriage of the defendant after 60 days following the decree is valid.
In Florida, there are no restrictions against remarriage following a divorce decree.
