3 Ways To Know You've Picked The Proper Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to undergo the legal court system, particularly if you lack confidence within your legal team. Allow me to share three important strategies to recognize that you've hired the proper lawyer: 1. They Concentrate On Your Sort Of Case What the law states is often tricky and that requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you want a legal representative, try to find one that handles the challenge you're facing. Even if a relative or friend recommends you make use of a firm they know, if they don't have a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. As soon as your attorney is surely an expert, especially in the trouble you're facing, you know you've hired the best one. 2. The Lawyer Carries A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it might be hard to win an instance, particularly if the team working for you has little to no experience. Search for practices which may have won numerous cases that relate to yours. Although this is no guarantee that you case is going to be won, it gives you a much better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In the event the attorney you've chosen takes time to listen for your concerns and answer your inquiries, you've probably hired the correct one. Regardless of how busy they are or how small your concerns seem from the perspective, it's important that they answer you in a caring and timely manner. From the point of view of a common citizen who isn't familiar with the judicial system, court cases may be pretty scary you require updates and also to seem like you're area of the solution. Some attorneys are merely a lot better to you and your case than others. Make sure you've hired the best team to your circumstances, to actually can placed the matter behind you as fast as possible. Faith with your legal representative is step one to winning any case.

My Husband And I Need Legal Advice From A Lawyer We Own 2 Acres Of Land,Since1978.?
We Only Rely On Our Social Security, Check And If It Is Possible For Someone To Give Us Some Referral Of Someone Out There That Can Advice Us With This Problem, Since We Are Unable To Pay For A Private Lawyer. This Concerns Of Someone That Tore Down Our Fence From Our Land Claiming That He Has Papers That Says So, But We Have Had That Land Since 1978 When Our Deeds Were Given To Us.
It's always possible that property lines were lost or abandoned before you purchased the property - the first thing you need to do is check with your county assessor for a legal description of your parcel (most times the description is on your deed). You might also need to have a "civil engineer" to come to your land and make sure that the lines are marked correctly. Parcels are set in measurements from the main roads - by quarter miles and feet from the center of two other measurements. If after your property lines are confirmed and staked out - then if the pretender who tore down your fences is wrong - you can sue him, for the cost of replacing your property line fences. There is another way that your property lines might change and that is if a utility company has placed an "offset" or "easement" for future need - Electrical, natural gas, and broadcast lines have precedence and may arbitrarily take some of your property for their use. That is called "eminent domain" - and all counties, city's and municipalities reserve the right to do that for the public good (uses include roads and railways - channels for water, etc)
All this you can investigate on your own - you have time if not money.
Is My Knife Legal To Carry In My Pocket In California? (Law Enforcement And Lawyer Answers Preferred)?
Hi, So I'M 16 And I Recently Got This Knife That I Really Like. Im Really Curious To Know If The California Law Allows Me To Carry This Knife Around With Me. Here Are Some Pics:
Blade Is Slightly Smaller Than My Palm, Don'T Know If That Rule Still Applies.
The Whole Thing Opened Measures About 7.5 Inches.
The Blade Measures About 3.25 Inches.
The Actual Sharp Part Of The Blade Measures About 2.75 Inches.
This Knife Also Has A Clip, So I Don'T Know If I Need To Have The Clip Out In Order To Carry The Knife With Me. Judging From The Measurements And Pics, Is It Legal For A 16 Year Old To Carry This Knife In California? Thank You In Advance.
Under California law, length is not an issue for carrying knives in public. The length of the knife is irrelevant unless its a switchblade. In that case, it is illegal to carry if it is longer than 2.5 inches (PC 653k)
The only thing that matters under California law (PC 12020(c)(24)) is whether or not it has "ready use as a stabbing weapon. What this means is, if you have a folding blade of any length, you can carry it concealed. If it is an open blade, no matter how large, you can carry it, but it must be exposed. You could literally walk down the street in California with a machete or broadsword as long as it carried exposed (not brandished)*. Likewise, you can carry a foot long blade in your pants* as long as it folded. So the knife you have with the clip can be carried either completely concealed in your pocket or exposed.
When it comes to carrying on k-12 school property, the blade cannot be longer than 2.5 inches (PC 626.10) but schools generally prohibit them by rules anyway.
It is true that Los Angeles has stricter laws on the books regarding knives but they are probably not enforceable because of the preemption of state law.
There is nothing in the law that prohibits a juvenile from carrying a knife. The knife in the pictures are completely for you legal to carry in public.
*EDITED IN RESPONSE TO JOHN S.: Wow, he sure is a defense attorney! OK, its true it doesn't legally have to be "in a scabbard." But I don't see any other reasonable way to carry a knife (or sword). In one's hand? Then they face the possibility of 417 PC, Brandishing. So, yes, I do concede that the law does not require a scabbard and I actually (still) appreciate the hairsplitting.
It was only dictum in my answer but I need to do some more research on case law on the concealed carry issue in a backpack. I suppose if gun laws are any guide, it would depend on if the back pack had a lock on it or not.
Child Custody Case And Determining Factors?
Currently Involved In A Custody Case. Some Things Have Come To Light And I Have A Few Questions For People Who Have Gone Through A Battle Before. Does The Parents Moral Values Play A Role In Determining Custody? If Contact Is Being Restricted And / Or Monitored Is That Taken Into Account?
The moral values: It depends.
Restricted contact: It depends.
One thing I hated about my family law class during law school was that family law is not black and white. There is never a bright legal line (unless the situation is really extreme). Just about everything related to family law is all about the shades of gray.
Moral values are irrelevant unless they represent an obvious and extreme risk to the child's physical or mental health. So, if the other parent is slutting around - the court is not going to care unless the parent is exposing the child to sex acts. If the slutting around is happening behind closed doors, it is likely going to be considered irrelevant. Likewise, if the parent is partying: If the child isn't being exposed to the parties it will be irrelevant.
And candidly, even if there is blow back on the child, the court will often just order the parent to curtail the behavior rather than change custody.
A parent unilaterally stopping visitation without a really good reason is more likely to raise the eyebrows of any judge.
Best Law Firm For Mega Millions Winner?
Do Certain Firms Excel At Assisting Mega Millions Winners?
What do you need a lawyer for? Tax-wise, coming into a large sum of money isn't rocket science. Any tax preparer will be able to help you file correctly. Unless what you're asking is for a law firm to help you weasel out of the tax payment.
Also, expect to change your phone number... a *lot*. Because the identities of the winners are public, you'll be hounded, for the rest of your life, by people trying to get you to invest in their crazy ideas or to help save the whales or whatever. Because of *that*, actually, what you might want to consider doing is see a lawyer about maybe finding some homeless dude, send *him* forward with the winning ticket (after setting up all the contracts with him, of course), and then have him transfer all of the winnings to you (except for a few thousand for him for his troubles). That way, you'd stay off of the radar of the investment-seekers...
Legal Advice Please...[Details About Legal Separation]?
I Am Now Separated With My Husband,And Since Annulment Is Expensive I Am Considering Of Atleast Legal Separation..How Will I Do That And How Much It Cost?Is There Any Ground Needed As To If It Will Be Granted?Thank You
How much it will cost would depend on the lawyer, but generally it would be cheaper than annulment based on psychological incapacity because you wouldn't need a doctor to examine you and your husband. Annulment based on grounds other than psychological incapacity will also be relatively cheaper.
The provisions of law providing the grounds for legal separation are as follows:
Art. 55. A petition for legal separation may be filed on any of the following grounds:
(1) Repeated physical violence or grossly abusive conduct directed against the petitioner, a common child, or a child of the petitioner;
(2) Physical violence or moral pressure to compel the petitioner to change religious or political affiliation;
(3) Attempt of respondent to corrupt or induce the petitioner, a common child, or a child of the petitioner, to engage in prostitution, or connivance in such corruption or inducement;
(4) Final judgment sentencing the respondent to imprisonment of more than six years, even if pardoned;
(5) Drug addiction or habitual alcoholism of the respondent;
(6) Lesbianism or homosexuality of the respondent;
(7) Contracting by the respondent of a subsequent bigamous marriage, whether in the Philippines or abroad;
(8) Sexual infidelity or perversion;

(10) Abandonment of petitioner by respondent without justifiable cause for more than one year.

(1) Where the aggrieved party has condoned the offense or act complained of;
(2) Where the aggrieved party has consented to the commission of the offense or act complained of;
(3) Where there is connivance between the parties in the commission of the offense or act constituting the ground for legal separation;

Quick Question About Benefits After The Injuries After A Car Accident.?
I Took 3 Years Of College In Ontario Just Over A Year Ago (My Last Day Of College Was April 2015). 3 Months Ago I Was In A Car Accident And Obtained Lots If Brain And Memorily Damage. People Are One Of The Things I Dont Remember That Well But The List Goes On (Words, Animals, Etc). Now Im Just Curious, I Am Being Declared At Fault (I Think Its Wrong But I Cant Even Recall The Accident Or The Day Of The Accident) And I Also Cant Remember Anything That I Did In School, Not The Formulas Needed Or Any Of The Education I Know I Took. Because I Cant Remember It, What Do I Do? Can I Get Any Of My Tuition Or Books Fees Back? I Did Lose All My Books To My Accident And Have Nothing But One Book Left From My College Courses. I Do Have A Lawyer That Deals With People In My Situation (Health Related Cases) So Do I Ask Her What To Do? Im Just Depressed I Cant Recall A Single Thing :(
Have you tried working with a memory specialist? In your case, a speech therapist (I know sounds odd, but they can help you with recall, especially the aphasia - word and name issues.)
You can't get refunds for books or tuition since you go the education. It isn't their fault that you can't remember any of it. Make sure you see a neurologist to see if you can't recover your memory.
You might also want to see if you can join a brain injury support group.
Your lawyer won't work with the social effects of the accident. Since it's your fault, you really have no one to sue.
It will be a long road, but you can make a life for yourself, just a different life than what you planned.
