Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will find that there are countless lawyers in the area that advertise which they are experts in your sort of case. This could make the process of finding one with a great deal of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, in the event you follow the following it is possible to limit your pursuit on the right one in almost no time. The initial step is to make a selection of the lawyers which are listed in your neighborhood specializing in your circumstances. When you are making this list you must only include those which you have a great vibe about based upon their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down by using a little while evaluating their website. There you must be able to find how many years they are practicing and some general specifics of their success rates. At this time your list ought to have shrunken further to people that you just felt had professional websites and an appropriate volume of experience. You should then take time to look up independent reviews for each attorney. Make sure you see the reviews instead of just counting on their overall rating. The details within the reviews will give you a concept of how they connect with their clientele and the length of time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, it is advisable to talk to a minimum of the last three lawyers which may have the credentials you are searching for. This will provide you with some time to truly evaluate how interested they may be in representing both you and your case. It is actually imperative that you follow most of these steps to actually find a person containing the correct level of experience to get you the very best outcome.

Are Legal Aid Lawyers Any Good?
Are They Usually Young And Inexperienced?
It depends on the lawyer. Some lawyers are inherently good and some are not.
Young/new lawyers often tend to make up for their lack of experience with their dedication and hard work. On my very first case (before I was actually licensed as an attorney - I was still an intern practicing under my supervising attorney's law license), I read every single case that was related to the case I was working on. I literally spend hundreds of hours on research. I won the case in Superior Court against an attorney with 15 years experience. The defendant appealed and hired a second law firm that specialized in appeals court work. This was my first time in the Appellate Court. And I won again. (And the first law firm I defeated actually offered me a job . . . which I didn't accept.) The defendant appealed to the state's Supreme Court and hired a law firm that specialized in cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. I won again.
I am considered a pretty good attorney. Today I have about eight years of experience, and I only work in legal aid because I like the freedom of being able to represent clients who genuinely need help and DESERVE help without having to worry about how that client is going to pay me.
Oklahoma Property Law Question?
I Have Approx. 7 Acres That Has Been Fenced For 20+ Yrs . My Neighbor Has Passed Away And The New Owners Are Trying To Move The Fence. Could You Help Direct Me To The Proper Laws That Address This Issue?
If you can possibly work this out with your new neighbor, then I would work something out with them. If you strongly oppose your new neighbors moving the fence, then you should consult a local real estate attorney. If the fence has been situated in its current position for twenty years, then the land that you have fenced is considered to be owned by you. It is called Boundary Line by Agreement, and if it were to go to court, you most likely would win the case, but again, it is always better to work things out if you can.
A property line may be determined to be different than as was stated on the previous Warranty Deed, and it is known as "Boundary Line By Agreement". If this is your case, the owners have agreed that a certain line will be the property line even though they know it is not the actual deeded property line. When there has been such an agreement and the condition has existed for as you have stated, over twenty years, then the actual legal property line becomes that which they have agreed on previously. This type of problem often happens when one of the agreeing owners sells his property and the new owner wants to move a fence that has existed for years under the previous owner's agreement with the neighbor. Again, if you cannot work things out with your new neighbor, please consult a local attorney. I hope this has helped you. Good luck!
Please Sort This Confusion About State Attorney Office?
Came Across Description Of "District Attorney" In Wikipedia, But I've Come Out More Confused! Please Give Me An Example Or Help Me Answer These Questions?
Can An Ordinary Citizen Present A Case To The Highest District Attorney Office?
Is This Office That Of The Attorney General At The U.S. Department Of Justice?
I'm Trying To Solve A Problem Which Involves Two Local Non-Profit Organizations, One Which Is A Branch Of A National One. It Also Involves One State Agency And Social Security Which Of Course It's An Agency Of The Federal Government.
I Believe This Case I'm Trying To Build Should Be Brought To The Highest Attorney Office, For I Know It Would Be A Complete Waste Of Time Trying To Bring It To Congress Attention.
Any Suggestions And Answers Are Welcome!
A District attorney is usually an elected position held by a lawyer. This person is responsible for Criminal cases prosecuted in their district. In large districts there are Assistant District Attorneys who actually go to the court and prosecute the cases and their boss, the DA oversees and is responsible for their actions. For a case to be presented to them, a law must have been broken (and investigate by the police usually as well).
The attorney general is the top legal adviser of a state and is usually appointed. They will rarely oversee individual cases but their office often has authority over lawyers in the state. They would be concerned about legal problems or legal interest of the state itself.
Now in regards to your problem. I would have to know what crime was committed. Different agencies oversee different things. Non-profits are more often then not concerned with the IRS. If they do not act as non-profits then they might lose their tax free status. If a law was broken the DA will become involved if charges are filed. The DA is publicly elected so yes you can speak to them though their schedule may not be easy to accommodate but they really have no involvement unless a crime is committed. The State Attorney general will have little involvement unless legal professionals violated ethics or law or the state is affected in some way.
Also the Social Security administration oversees social security.
Can Someone With An Expunged Felony Become A Lawyer In Ca?
California does not have any true "expungement" of records. There is a post-conviction dismissal under Pen C 1203.4 for those who successfully complete probation, and there is a Certificate of Rehabilitation for those who are law abiding following release from prison.
However, that said, a felony conviction does not necessarily disqualify a person from admission to the California State Bar. Many people with such convictions--and exemplary lives thereafter--have been admitted. Of course, offenses involving theft or fraud will be looked at more harshly than, say, drug or alcohol offenses.
I Want To Become A Civil Rights Attorney, Where Do I Start ?
I'm Not Sure Where To Begin...
Presently I Work Full Time, Un-Related Work, And My Wife Is In School. Soon She Will Be Out Of School, And I Want To Take The Opportunity To Go Back Myself While She Brings Home The Bacon For A Change. I Live In Ft. Myers, Fl.
I Would Like To Know First,...How Many Years Of School Am I Looking At Here, And What Do I Need To Major/Minor In...What Should I Get My Associates Degree In First ?...Are There Any Shortcuts/Fasttrack, To Qualify To Take The Fl Bar (Probably Not) ? Can I Go Directly To Law School ?...What Are The Minimum Requirements ?
I'm 29 Now....Is It Too Late For Me ?
I Had Kids Really Young, And I Would Like To Still Make Something Out Of My Life Before It's Too Late. I've Always Been Passionate About Law, And Civil Rights So I'm Doing This For The Right Reasons (Not Money).
Any Advice (Prefferrably From Other Attorney's) Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
It's definitely not too late. I started law school at 36, and many of my classmates were older than me.
You'll first need a bachelor's degree. It doesn't matter what you major in. What does matter is that you get the best grades possible, as that will be one major factor that law schools consider in deciding whether to admit you. In about your last year of undergrad, you'll need to take the LSAT. This is the other most important factor. You'll want to study very seriously for the LSAT, as it's probably not the kind of test you're used to taking, and your score will make or break you in terms of what school you get into.
During undergrad, you should volunteer somewhere where can get some experience working with civil rights issues. My first recommendation would be to work with the ACLU somehow. You'll need to demonstrate a commitment to civil rights when it comes time to find a job. And most law schools want to see a history of volunteerism.
In your last year of undergrad, once you've taken the LSAT and gotten your score, you'll start applying to law schools. Law school typically lasts three years, but many schools have a part-time program, which typically lasts four years. You'll want to work your butt off in law school, as future employers will consider your class rank when deciding whether to hire you. Your law school will probably have a chapter of the National Lawyer's Guild, or some other similar civil liberties organization - you should get heavily involved with them, as that experience will be useful when you start job hunting.
The field of law is heavily over-saturated, and, believe it or not, jobs in civil rights law are very hard to come by. Those jobs tend to go to people from the top schools with the best grades, and who have a long history of civil rights work. It's not impossible to get one of those jobs without those credentials, but it's difficult.
Good Questions For Prospective Law Student To Ask Lawyer?
I'M A Student Thinking About Going Into Law. In A Couple Days I'M Having Lunch With A Lawyer To Discuss A Small Internship And Also To Ask Any Questions I Have About The Legal Field As A Profession. I Already Have Some Questions In Mind But Would Like Some Suggestions On Any Good Questions To Ask. Thanks
Ask what a regular day is like for him/ her, ask if he or she enjoys whatever area they're in or wishes they went into another area of law etc. Ask what areas of law are going to be hot topics in the next 10 years- intellectual property, information protection for example. Ask if it's stressful. Ask them to pay for lunch too.
