Finding An Experienced Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will see that there are countless lawyers in your town that advertise they concentrate on your form of case. This will make the procedure of finding one with a great deal of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the tips below it is possible to define your search to the right one out of very little time. The first step is to generate a list of the lawyers which are listed in the area focusing on your circumstances. When you are making this list you must only include those you have a great vibe about according to their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down if you take some time evaluating their website. There you should be able to find the number of years they are practicing plus some general information regarding their success rates. At this stage your list must have shrunken further to the people that you felt had professional websites and an appropriate level of experience. You should then spend some time to lookup independent reviews for each attorney. Make sure to look at the reviews rather than just depending on their overall rating. The details from the reviews will give you an idea of the way they connect to their clientele and how much time they invest into each case they are focusing on. Finally, you will need to meet with at the very least the past three lawyers who have the credentials you are searching for. This gives you enough time to really evaluate how interested they are in representing you and your case. It can be imperative that you follow most of these steps to actually find someone which has the proper level of experience to help you get the best possible outcome.

Dwi Vs Dui............?
Are They The Same Thing
Okay, I am hear to say the first 6 answer are wrong (just trying to be informative).
DWI- Driving While Intoxicated
DUI- Driving Under the Influence
There is NO difference between the two. Roughly 40 states in the U.S. enforce a DUI (driving under the influence) as the offense. The other ten states enforce DWI (such as Missouri, Texas, New York, Minnesota, Connecticut, New Jersey, and New Hampshire, all DWI States, NOT DUI).
There are also other states that classify the offense as DWAI, OUI, DUII, OWI
DWAI (Colorado, which also enforces the DUI)
OWI (Indiana, Michigan)
You can't be charged with a DUI or DWI in these states, other then Colorado which enforces two of them.
So, it completely depends on which state you get pulled over in. Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) can be giving to a driver, whether he has been drinking, or on any type of mind altering drug (including certain prescriptions). Although each state has different penalties for the offense, they are considered the same in the national database.
Hope you didn't get one, they aren't that much fun!
What Makes It A Felony????
If Someone Is Wanted For Back Check Felony, What Exactly Does This Means???? Does It Mean That The Check Tried To Be Cashed Or Simply That It Was Written Out???
Other Words, Its Only A Felony Once Someone Tries To Cash The Check, Right???? Well, How Long Does One Spend In Jail For This?
Felony check fraud depends on the state's laws, the amount for the check, and the number of times that you have broken this law. In my state, if you have repeatedly written bad checks (not sure of the exact number, but I believe it is 3 or more outstanding bad checks) it will be considered a felony. Also, if you have an extensive history of check fraud, the law demands that any additional offenses be charged as a felony. Also, if the amount of the check(s) comes to more than $1000, it will be considered a felony.
Most of the time, you can plead out for a fine, restitution to the individual or institution that the check was written to, and probation. If you are a repeat offender, you might serve 30-90 days in jail plus a fine and probation.
Attorney & Lawyers Help? Recommendations?
What Type Of Attorney Would I Need? This Is The Situation. We Are A General Contractor And Have A Contract With A Client For A Commercial Shopping Plaza. We Have Performed The Work. Well, The Client Has Filed Bankruptcy And Owe's Us Around 80K And Left For India For 2 Weeks. The Client Keeps Blowing Us Off. This Has Been Going On For Almost A Year. What Type Of Attorney Would I Go To?
If he filed BK, there probably isnt much you can do. What you SHOULD have done was file a mechanic's lien on the property so you would have some priority to be paid out of the bankrupt estate. It might not be too late to file that lien now. You need to speak with an attorney who handles bankruptcy for creditors.

February 24, 2009 - "Vaccine Court: Autism Debate Continues"
The family of 10-year-old Bailey Banks won their case quietly and without fanfare in June of 2007, but the ruling has only now come to public attention. In the remarkably clear and eloquent decision, Special Master Richard Abell ruled that the Banks had successfully demonstrated that "the MMR vaccine at issue actually caused the conditions from which Bailey suffered and continues to suffer."
Bailey's diagnosis is Pervasive Developmental Disorder -- Not Otherwise Specified (PDD-NOS) which has been recognized as an autism spectrum disorder by CDC, HRSA and the other federal health agencies since at least the 1990s.
In his conclusion, Special Master Abell ruled that Petitioners had proven that the MMR had directly caused a brain inflammation illness called acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) which, in turn, had caused the autism spectrum disorder PDD-NOS in the child:
The Court found that Bailey's ADEM was both caused-in-fact and proximately caused by his vaccination. It is well-understood that the vaccination at issue can cause ADEM, and the Court found, based upon a full reading and hearing of the pertinent facts in this case, that it did actually cause the ADEM. Furthermore, Bailey's ADEM was severe enough to cause lasting, residual damage, and retarded his developmental progress, which fits under the generalized heading of Pervasive Developmental Delay, or PDD [an autism spectrum disorder]. The Court found that Bailey would not have suffered this delay but for the administration of the MMR vaccine, and that this chain of causation was... a proximate sequence of cause and effect leading inexorably from vaccination to Pervasive Developmental Delay.
The Bailey decision is not an isolated ruling. We now know of at least two other successful ADEM cases argued in Vaccine Court. More significantly, an explosive investigation by CBS News has found that since 1988, the vaccine court has awarded money judgments, often in the millions of dollars, to thirteen hundred and twenty two families whose children suffered brain damage from vaccines. In many of these cases, the government paid out awards following a judicial finding that vaccine injury lead to the child's autism spectrum disorder. In each of these cases, the plaintiffs' attorneys made the same tactical decision made by Bailey Bank's lawyer, electing to opt out of the highly charged Omnibus Autism Proceedings and argue their autism cases in the regular vaccine court. In many other successful cases, attorneys elected to steer clear of the hot button autism issue altogether and seek recovery instead for the underlying brain damage that caused their client's autism.
Medical records associated with these proceedings clearly tell the tale. In perhaps hundreds of these cases, the children have all the classic symptoms of regressive autism; following vaccination a perfectly healthy child experiences high fever, seizures, and other illnesses, then gradually, over about three months, loses language, the ability to make eye contact, becomes "over-focused" and engages in stereotypical head banging and screaming and then suffers developmental delays characteristic of autism. Many of these children had received the autism diagnosis. Yet the radioactive word "autism" appears nowhere in the decision.
Corporate Law Career?
Im A Junior In High School And Im Interested In Getting Some Info On Corporate Law. What Do Corporate Lawyers Do Exactly? What Are The Benefits? What Are The Most Profitable Corporations To Work For? If I Decide To Pursue A Career In Corporate Law, What Classes Should I Take In High School And In College?
"Corporate" law is a very vague term. Depending on the firm you work for, you could do a variety of things. 90% of my clients are homeowners associations and condominiums, but I am a corporate lawyer. (Homeowners associations and condominiums are actually corporations.) Small businesses and international companies are corporations ( or LLC's, LP's, LLP's, LLLP's ... it goes on). "Corporate" law is a very broad term. I've been involved in contract dispute, legal reaserch, forming new companies, criminal investigations, civil lawsuits, settling the estate of someone who died, and divorce cases.
We read a lot of laws and cases: write several pages a day of various letters, memos, contracts, etc.; meet with boards of directors, shareholders, and opposing counsel, go to court, and counsel our clients.
We are very well paid, but we work very long hours.
Take a wide variety of courses. They will all serve you well. Do not major in pre-law. It is a wasted degree. If you can't pick a major you like, then pick liberal arts. It will teach you how to think. That's a very valuable skill in life, not just the law.
What Are The Differences Between A Prosecutor And A Defense Attorney?
I Want To Know The Key Differences Between These Two. I Plan On Studying Law And Criminal Justice In The Future And I Want To Know About These Two Professions First, They'Re The Ones That Interest Me The Most. What Are Their Roles In Court? And What Makes Them So Different From Each Other?
The prosecutor does the ame job in civil and criminal matters. In criminal, they generally work for a government body (city, state, county, federal) and in civil cases they work for an individual or corporation. The prosecutors work for the side that accuses the defendant of the wrong action. Their job is to seek the most penalty that the law will allow.
The defense attorney works for the accused in both civil and criminal cases. Their job is to keep their client from being convicted of the charges and/or getting the least punishment possible.
