Recent Grad W/ Ba In English: Advice About Law School?
I Am A Very Conflicted Recent Graduate With An Enlish Major. I Realized That There Is Not Much To Do With A Ba In Eng. And From Research Online And Heresay I Am Leaning Towards Entering Law School. However, I Have Always Been Interested In Fashion And Magazines But I Want A Well Paying Job In The End (Student Loans!). I Also Don'T Live An Area (I Live In Connecticut) That Has A Lot Of Opportunities For Someone Interested In Fashion. What Should I Do? I Need Serious Advice, Feedback, Personal Experience. Just Serious Responses Please. Thanks.
Law school is very expensive and it would take you awhile to get through school and you have to pass the bar. There is this really good fashion school in NYC. You should probably think about relocating to somewhere where fashion is big like California or NYC or Florida. Its a very good price. Other fashion schools are way expensive. You should check it out.
You should go to the careerbuilder website and see about jobs in the fashion. Usually to work in fashion you have to have some type of work/ or school experience in fashion.Unless that is your very very knowledgeable about fashion.
Good luck! I hope you find something!
Is This A Normal Contract For Attorney'S Fees In A Settlement?
We Are Filing A Lawsuit Against A Big Pharm Company Related To Our Son'S Birth Defect. The Attorney Sent Over A Contract And It States That The Attorney Will Receive 35% Of Any Settlement (I'Ve Read That This Is Pretty Close To Standard) And &Quot;Client Understands That The Client Is Giving Up At This Time To The Attorneys The Amount Stated Above, And That Such Percentage Is Of The The Total Recovery Or Settlement Before Any Costs, Expenses, Or Disbursements Are Deducted And Client Understands That All Costs, Expenses, And Disbursements Are Paid Out Of The Client'S Portion Of The Recovery, And Not Out Of The Attorneys' Portion.&Quot;
Does This Mean That After They Take 35% I'Ll Still Have A Large Bill For Their Services? Is This A Standard For Personal Injury Claims? Any Advice Would Be Appreciated.
The attorney will EITHER work for a percentage of any settlement OR for a fixed or hourly fee. That said, court fees and expenses related to the case are in addition to the attorney's 35%. You MAY have a bill above the 35%, but it will not be for their services. I suggest discussing likely fees with the attorney BEFORE signing the contract. If they can't/won't explain this to your satisfaction, you shouldn't hire them.
Where Can I Find A Good And Reasonably Priced Divorce Lawyer In Houston, Tx?
Houston Divorce Lawyer - Marilyn Gale Vilyus
Family law attorney practicing in divorce, family law mediation, child support, child custody, and Texas family law issues.
Marilyn Gale Vilyus is a Houston Divorce Lawyer and Mediator who handles ALL kinds of divorces -- from the friendliest, uncontested divorce where she represents one of the parties whose spouse participates without an attorney, to the most serious of divorce circumstances, such as those requiring the termination of parental rights.
Marilyn is a Houston family law lawyer that defines the phrase "conflict resolution" and is dedicated to helping couples keep the costs of a divorce as low as possible -- and that includes both the financial costs and the emotional costs! We offer a variety of services, including providing the information our clients need to determine whether or not to get divorced at all!
The more a couple can make their own decisions about their divorce, the more they will stay out of court and the more money they will save! Ms. Vilyus uses her experience as a Houston Divorce Lawyer to make sure her clients' rights are protected and ALL the necessary issues are discussed and resolved, while still allowing both parties to maintain control over their agreement to the highest degree possible. This is NOT the kind of law suit where a "windfall" check is going to arrive at the end! The less parties spend on "fighting", the less they will spend on attorney fees and the more money they will have to divide between themselves!
Whether or not a couple has children, FRIENDLIER IS CHEAPER! A divorce is a life-impacting experience, and we help our clients see the "light at the end of the tunnel!"
Marilyn will explain how Houston Texas judges deal with issues regarding basic needs so that the couple can maintain the "status quo" while the divorce is pending.
If the couple has children, the prime questions are these:
1. Where will the children live? CHILD CUSTODY
2. How much will CHILD SUPPORT be?
3. What kind of visitation of children will there be?
Studies show that it is essential for children to know that they are not responsible for their parents' divorce. Kids learn much about life while watching their parents divorce: how to treat the opposite sex, how to handle anger, how to compromise, how to handle disappointment, how to overcome diversity, how to forgive, how to make the best out of a bad situation!! Kids will use their parents as role models and, later in life, whenever they face any problems with their own relationships, they will act just like they saw their mom or dad do!
The couple will each be required to take a parenting class and to file the original of the certificate of completion with the court. This is not really about parenting as much as it is about the effects of divorce on kids. We will provide a variety of acceptable classes so that a client can choose one with the most convenient date, time and location.
WHAT IF ITS DOWNRIGHT UGLY?
Unfortunately, sometimes the circumstances are such that the divorce requires a tough, aggressive legal approach. Even in these cases, a client can be confident that Ms. Vilyus will use her negotiating and mediation skills to obtain the best result. Sometimes, a court hearing and / or trial is necessary. Whatever it takes, any client of Ms. Vilyus can rely on her commitment and dedication to work hard to get the best possible outcome! The parties may go to DIVORCE MEDIATION prior to trial. In this situation, Ms. Vilyus represents her client at the mediation, which would also be attended by the spouse and his or her attorney.
This should be differentiated from the situations in which Ms. Vilyus acts as a Houston Divorce Mediator herself in order to facilitate an agreement between two spouses and their respective Houston divorce lawyers.
Of course, our office also deals with many Texas family law issues in addition to divorce.
Our Law Office is dedicated to the practice of Family Law. We are located in West Houston and also handle Texas family law cases in Harris County, Fort Bend County, Montgomery County, Waller County, among ALL AREAS ACROSS TEXAS
Does Anyone Know Any Family Law Lawyers That Do Pro Bono Work In The Phoenix Metropolitian Area(Arizona)?
No, I used to work in a family law firm and knew none that did pro bono work. They do tend to donate time at the courts though to earn credit for their CLE. I think it's called "The Family Lawyer Assistance Program" but honestly I'm not sure. Call the courts and ask for information. Tell them you need information about the Family Law or DR area of the court. Maricopa County Superior Court has a web site. You may want to do a search for the web site and see if it offers you any information on free legal services. I don't know the web site address off hand but have been able to do a search through Yahoo in the past.
Family Court Question?
How Long Did It Take Before You Seen A Judge?
I Turned In Papers 3 Months Ago. He Hasn'T Paid For Anything Or Seen Kids.
Will I Get Retro-Active Pay?
Do Judges Order Kids Under 2 To Stay Weekends With Their Father Who They Don'T Know?
Yes it can take a few months, did they issue you a court date. That would seem strange if they hadn't, contact the court to make sure they didn't lose your paper work you don't want your case to slip through the crakcs. Depends on where you live if you will get retroactive pay. Some might go back as far as the childs birth some might go back as far as the date of your court filing, some might no go back at all. Its the judges discretion of if he thinks the child can have alone visits. Hopefully the judge will have sense to know that this child might need to adjust to this practically stranger.
