How Much Does A Lawyer/Attorney Make Fresh Out Of Law School As A Starting Salary?
I Heard From Various Individuals That Law School Is Not Even Worth It. Once You Get Into Law School, An Incredible Amount Of Debt Gets Racked Up, Thus Decreasing Your Actual Salary Once Starting The Profession. Also I Have Heard That Once You Actually Graduate From Law School And Become A Certified Lawyer/Attorney, It Is Incredibly Hard To Find A Job At A Law Firm As Law Firms Are Really Doing You A Favor By Hiring You. Is This True? I Have Also Heard That Once You Start Working For A Law Firm, You Only Make About $30-40K A Year, With Huge Amounts Of Debt Piled On.
I Really Enjoy Law And Find It Incredibly Interesting But These Shortcomings Of Being A(N) Lawyer/Attorney Makes Me Want To Look Elsewhere For A Career.
I Need To Know Are These Sayings True Or Not? (Please Answer In Complex Detail):
1) Are Law Firms Really Doing You A Favor By Hiring You And Is Finding A Job Difficult?
2) Is The Starting Salary For A(N) Lawyer/Attorney $30-$40K And If So, How Long Does It Take To Finally Start Earning Six Figures After Continuing The Profession?
Thank You In Advance!
Here are my stats:
I am a licensed attorney who went to a top-100 law school. I graduated in the top half of my class. I have a unique specialization - tax - that most attorneys don't want to touch, and will soon have advanced licenses in addition my law license for tax practice.
I owe $120,000 in law school debt alone. I had a full scholarship for undergrad, so I had no student debt going in to law school. Most kids aren't that lucky.
I currently make $48,000 at an accounting firm. I'm not even technically working as an attorney. I do legal research, write memos, call and write letters to the IRS and state taxing bodies, but I don't have JD on my business card or any indication on my work correspondence that I'm a lawyer. It's frustrating and mildly humiliating.
My friends and classmates make between $40,000 and $110,000. The one making $40k works as a county prosecutor, and she only works 40-45 hours a week. Two making around $60,000 work as civil litigators, one in PI, one in general litigation, both work 60-70 hours a week. The one making $110,000 works at a large firm in their tax department, not by her own choice. She works 80 hours a week. She has literally not had a day off since she started work last August. Not Thanksgiving, not Christmas, not even her birthday. She has not had a single day where she did not work and bill time.
You make good money as a lawyer one of two ways - (1) go to a good school, land in the top of your class, and work for a large law firm, working like a slave; (2) get experience in a small or mid-sized firm and then get to the point where you open your own office and build a client base that generates good revenue. As a point of personal advice, you actually have more net worth doing the latter than the former. Most big-shot lawyers I know are in debt up to their eyeballs. They're awful at managing money, so even though they can have huge salaries they're still just as broke as they were starting out as a first-year associate. Debt is your worst enemy.

Lawyers For Insurance Company Not Acting In Good Faith?
How Is It Possible To Know When The Lawyers For The Insurance Company Are Acting In Bad Faith When Refusing To Settle Or If It Really Is Coming From The Opposing Party Directly? I Am A Plaintiff In A Case, Who Is Pro Se And The Defendant Is Using The Insurance Company Lawyers To Defend The Case, Instead Of The Original Lawyer Who First Entered The Picture But Who Never Made An Entrance Of Appearance. I Have Done Some Research And It Seems Like The Insurance Company Is Not Acting In Good Faith But How Can I Know For Sure Where That &Quot;Bad Faith&Quot; Is Coming From? Why Would The Defendant Want To Drag Things Out In Court For An Eternity?
The lawyers appointed by the insurer represent the defendant and, indirectly, the insurer.
"Bad Faith", on their part, would be actions contrary to their clients interests, NOT contrary to your interests. If, for example, they were holding out for a trial instead of a settlement because they would get paid a higher fee, that would be bad faith. Declining to settle in hopes of pressuring you into accepting a lower offer is what they are paid to do.
In most cases, insurers authorize their lawyers to negotiate on their behalf. It would be up to the lawyer to decide when, and whether, to settle or go to trial.
I Need Legal Advice About Child Protective Services In Binghamton New York?
Does Anyone Know What Legal Advice Is Available For The Mishandling Of A Case By A County Run Agency Such As Cps? What Law Does It Fall Under So I Can Obtain A Lawyer?

You can try googling CPS plus the name of your state to get your CPS website. It should tell you the definitions for abuse and neglect in your state. There also may be a place to complain about treatment.

Are There Any Ways That Jim Crow Laws Were Actually Legal?
And Why? Please Also List Any Good Sources That You Used. :)
The Jim Crow Laws were the law, so they determined what was legal. (Laws are not illegal or legal, but they may or may not be constitutional or get overruled by newer/higher laws.) The Jim Crow laws were ruled to be constitutional in Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) , which said that separate but equal facilities still abided by the fourteenth amendment of equal protection and treatment for all citizens under the law. People assumed that there was no harm in segregation if the facilities were equal (which they weren't, but play along for a minute). However, Brown v. Board of Education (1954) overturned this justification of constitutionality. Now the court ruled that segregation inherently causes inequality because in the very act of separating, it is implied that there is something different between the groups, ergo one is inferior. But the Supreme Court does not have the power to change how laws are enforced, and it was not until Congress' Civil Rights legislation in the sixties that the federal government forced the Southern governments to end segregation and the Jim Crow laws.
So to answer your question, the Jim Crow laws were considered constitutional ("legal" as you put it) because the justice system, the yardstick for determining what is right and wrong, is comprised of humans, which are imperfect beings. The fickle humans in 1896 thought Jim Crow laws were okay, so Jim Crow laws were constitutional. As far as a general moral ruling of the Jim Crow laws as we understand morality today, the Jim Crows laws flout the rights of humanity and were never "legal" by these "laws."
