3 Methods To Know You've Picked The Correct Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to go through the legal court system, particularly if you lack confidence in your legal team. Listed below are three important approaches to know that you've hired the correct lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Sort Of Case What the law states is frequently tricky which requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you really need a lawyer, search for individual who relates to the matter you're facing. Regardless of whether a member of family or friend recommends you utilize a company they are fully aware, if they don't have got a focus that's much like your case, keep looking. Once your attorney is definitely an expert, specifically in the trouble you're facing, you realize you've hired the correct one. 2. The Lawyer Has A Winning Record Depending on the circumstances, it can be difficult to win an instance, particularly if the team working for you has minimal to no experience. Search for practices who have won numerous cases that pertain to yours. While this is no guarantee that you case will be won, it offers you a much better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond When the attorney you've chosen takes time to listen to your concerns and answer your inquiries, you've probably hired the right choice.

Some attorneys are simply just more desirable to you and your case as opposed to others. Be sure you've hired the most suitable team for your personal circumstances, to actually can place the matter behind you as fast as possible.

Question For Employment Lawyers About Wrongful Sexual Harassment?
As Of Tuesday 8/18/09 I Was Suspended From Work For Serious Charges As My Boss Put It. Yesterday I Reported To The Office For A Conference Call With The Head Of Human Resources And Found Out The Charges Were About Sexual Harassment On An Associate I Work With. So Here Is My Story. There Is An Associate I Work With As I'Ve Mentioned Above. She Has Accused Me Of Making Sexual Advances Toward Her,If Not More In The Work Place. She Says She Has 4 Witness' That Witnessed These Events At Work. Although From Personally Being There,None Of These Witness' Were Ever Around When She Spoke To Me When Passed Through That Area On A Patrol Or To Respond To A Call In That Area. As Of Lately,Rumors Have Spread Very Quickly Through The Store About The Two Of Us Having Sex,Me Being Obsessed With Her,Constantly Asking Her Out On Dates,And The List Goes On. So I Began Ignoring Her And Any Calls She Made Completely. Soon After,It Got To The Point Where Whenever She Ran Into On Patrol,She Would Ask Questions Like,Have I Done Something Wrong To You?, Why Don'T You Talk To Me?, What Happened To You And Why Have You Changed? I Have Reported Every One Of These Incidents To My Fellow Lp Officers In The Camera Room Every Time It Happened. From That Point On, She Started Staring At Me Every Time I Passed By Or Was In The Area. So I Asked My Fellow Lpo To Watch Her On The Camera,He Said &Quot;Dude,This Is Starting To Look Like Border Line Obsession.&Quot; The More I Ignored Her The Harder She Tried To Get My Attention. So When Things Didn'T Go Her Way,She Played The Sexual Harassment Card. So,I Denied All Accusations At My Meeting And They Thought It Was A Load Of B.S. After Doing A Little Investigating Of My Own,I Found Out Not Only Was She Married,But As Done This To Few Lp Officers Before I Got There. So She'S Been Known For Doing This. As For Her Witness' I Is Her Sister-In-Law And The Other 3 Are Very Good Friends Of Hers And Knew About This As Well And Are Lying For Her Now. This Has Happened To A Friend Of Mine A Few Months Ago. They Took The Same Steps With Him Even Though The Women Both Consented To The Sexual Joking. They Fired Him For Sexual Harassment ,But When He Got The Letter Of Termination,It Never Once Mentioned That Was There Reason For Termination But It'S On His Record Now. And Now The Same Thing Is Being Done To Me. The Company Never Did An Investigation On Him And Probably Won'T With Me Even Though I Have Quite A Bit Of Proof. And My Last But Not Least My Company Plays Favorites And I Don'T Think It'S Fair When I Am Literally The Only African-American Male Working In The Entire Store. So My Question Is,Since I Will Be Terminated Very Soon From Sexual Harassment,Do I Have Enough To Put Up A Fight In The Matter And Is This Something That May Be Worth Pursuing In Court? This Has Gone For Too Long And Something Needs To Be Done About It Since Our Company Won'T Defend Us. I Have Also Found Out From Another Reliable Source That I Was Also Accused Of Threatening To Beat My Co-Worker With A Baton If I Ever Caught Him Talking To Her Again
Thanks In Advance For Your Answers
You know, when you think about it, SHE was sexually harassing YOU! Man it galls me that only men are punished for this. Women are more than capable of it too, and she clearly was doing it to you, including creating a hostile work environment through slander.
While many states are considered "at-will" (meaning you can be fired for no reason at all at a whim) one of the exceptions is sexual harassment and defamation of character. It may be possible to sue for wrongful termination. It may also be possible to sue her individually for defamation and collect damages as a result of the loss of employment. I don't know what state you are, but your local department of labor might have some more specific advice and/or options. Get in touch with them and retain an attorney for yourself.
EDIT: If race seems to be an issue here (that is, they are being biased against your word because they are racist) heck, go for it. Race is also a exception to at-will too. This is CA's labor department link, and may be useful to you: http://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/HowToFileDisc...
Are You Impressed By Attorneys?
That They Got Into Law School, Endured It, And Are Now Attorneys?
Why Or Why Not?
I'm guessing you are planning to be or are one. Well I'm currently doing a Law degree and I am fascinated by attorneys and lawyers to be honest.
It requires dedication and an awful lot of hard work. And no not all lawyers are liars like the other answerer said. My lecturer is a human rights lawyer and she sure isn't a liar, there are good lawyers as well.
Have a nice day :)
What Is Family Law Like?
Are There Any Feel-Good Stories From Anyone Who Likes Their Practice? Thanks! : )
Family law is tough. These cases don't really "close" when children are involved, and they usually are. You have to be tough. Sometimes, when children are involved, you have to pick between two dysfunctional parents, which is the lesser of the two evils......... Most of the time, clients have a very difficult time paying their attorneys. Family law is tough.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Does My Son Need A Lawyer?
My Son'S Girlfriend Broke Up With Him After She Got Pregnant And He Is Heartbroken. He Wants To Experience Everything That She Is...Doctor Visits, Ultrasounds, Etc. And She Will Not Talk To Him Or Tell Him Why She No Longer Wants To See Him. This Is His First Child And My First Grandchild So I Am Not Happy About It Either But He Is 24 And Does Not Want Me To Get Involved. He Has As Much Right To Be A Part Of This Pregnancy As She Does. She Is 22 And Is Acting Very Immature. I Just Hate That He Has To Go Through This Heartache.
He has NO right to attend any doctor visits, ultrasounds, or even the birth. That would violate her privacy, and doctors are very strict about that. He can only attend upon her acceptance, period. No lawyer could ever convince a judge to violate her HIPAA protections.
Yes, you son needs a lawyer once the baby is born, to establish paternity and visitation rights .But until the baby is born, it's just her body, her privacy and her issue. You have no proof he's even the father yet.
I'm surprised some the female responders here are not aware of this fundamental right of her privacy.
Colorado Dui And Dwai?
So My Brother Had W Blood Test Resulting In 0.071. He Is 19 And This Is His First Offense Of Any Type. Other Than That He'S A Good Kid In School Who Maybe Parties A Bit Too Much. I Can'T Figure Out What He Will Be Charged With And Am Looking For Some Help. He Requested A Hearing From The Dmv And Already Contacted A Lawyer. Since This Us W Legal Issue If You Don'T Know What Your Talking About Please Don'T Post. Thanks In Advance.
DUI in Colorado is .08%... However, because he is under 21, he is probably being charged because when under the legal drinking age, they are allowed a max of .02% BAC.
So he will be charged with DUI and/or drinking underage.
I am not a lawyer, but I did a lot of research for my own DUI in Colorado.
And good idea on the hearing at DMV; at least he can put off "automatic" suspension of his driving privileges.
If you are looking for more help with his DUI, I'd recommend...
Some good information that helped me.
I Have So Many Trust Issues . I Cant Ever Trust Anyone. And I Have Someone That I Love Alot But We Have Alot Of Problems Because I Cant Trust Him. What Can I Do About This?
With trust issues, there is always a perpetrator behind it that made you have trust issues in the first place. There are a few ways to handle it, but you need to ask yourself:
Has he really done anything to make him lose my trust? Because if he's never actually done anything then maybe you need to realize that not everybody will lie, or cheat, or push you around or manipulate you, or whatever it is that caused the issues in the first place, whether it be parents, an old love, an old friend, a religious figure, an idol, etc, etc.
If he has, maybe you have a reason not to trust him. I also have trust issues, and one thing I found is that I don't instill trust in anyone until they earn it, and they show me they deserve it, by being honest with me, by not manipulating me, or making me feel stupid or embarrassed about certain ways I may act out.
