Questions For All Lawyers!!!!?
I Keep Hearing That Unless You Are A Yale Or Harvard Graduate, That Lawyers Don'T Make A Lot Of Money. That They Make Decent Figures But That It Is Not Like What Many Would Imagine.
Is This True? Also How Is The Job Security Of Lawyers?
I am an employment lawyer. I have my own firm. I am not rich. To the poster who said all lawyers are rich, please tell me how I can be rich when I only made $8,500 last year. The line that all lawyers are rich is wrong and totally out of date.
Since the 1970's law schools become more interested in selling classing than training a few talented lawyers to take up the few jobs available. If you go to one of those meet & greets put on by law schools the school's salesman (yes that is what that person is no matter what their title is) will promise you that you will get a job and make lots of money. Once you sign up for the school you will never see the salesman again -- you have been conned.
So now we have more lawyers being turned out from law school, twice a year, than there are jobs. And when the law schools report how many of their graduates get jobs they count anyone who works in a law firm or legal dept including secretaries, clerks, paralegals, receptionists. Two years ago the American Bar Assoc did a survey about salaries and found the average starting salary is around $40,000, and the the new attorney carries around $100,000 educational debt.
There is no guarantee that graduating from Yale or Harvard will help, but the facts are that more of those graduates get jobs. The only for sure way to know you will get a job is to have mommy or daddy in the legal profession and pull some strings for you.
Job security is the same as everyone else. Places like findlaw.com, the national law journal, and the American Bar Assoc newsletters are filled with massive layoffs from the big firms. Many of these huge firms have already announced they will not be hiring anyone right out law school until 2011. The only job security in this profession is owning your own law firm --- and then you will have the problem of putting all your time 24/7 into the firm and getting low pay.

Where Can I Look To Find A Lawyer For Divorce Advise....?
For Free...At Least Advise..I Know It Cost Alot Of Money To Get A Divorce But Im A Full Time Student And Mom Of 5 Year Old And 7 Month Old..I Just Recently Split Up With My Husband And He Said He Would Make Sure Things Were Alright, But I Just Dont Trust Him And Need To Protect Myself...But How....
In your state and city call the attorney's bar association and they have a list of attorneys that volunteer or do prono bono (free legal respresentation). Most attorneys do give free consolations over the phone and in person. You will need your attorney to advise on divorce as well as family law for joint or one parent as the custodian parent. God Bless You.
Why Do Lawyers &Quot;Practice&Quot; Law?
Why Do Lawyers Use The Term &Quot;Practice&Quot; Instead Of Saying I Work In Legal Field Or Something Like That. Why Is The Term &Quot;Practice&Quot; Used.
I deal with lawyers on a near daily basis (Im a police officer). I too asked several lawyers this question a few months back. The answer I received was pretty suprising. Laws, while black and white in some areas, are gray when it comes to others. Its in these gray areas where lawyers "practice", by this they mean try to get judges or juries to see their interpertation of the written law.
Laws are not inflexible. Even the cut and dry, black and white laws are not truly set in stone. For example: Yes you killed somebody. It is your defense lawyer's job to produce why, your emotional state, other mitigating circumstances that could possibly sway a jury to think that your were justified in doing what you did. Thats the practice part, using their skills at oration, persuasion and interpretation to outwit the other lawyer.
We Have To Somehow Establish Custody Right?
My Child Is 3 Months Old And Her Father And I Have Separated Ways, Never Married. Now I Have Learned That Neither One Of Us Has &Quot;True&Quot; Custody Of Her. My State Does Not Prese Custody If Paternity Has Been Established. We Live In Two Different States But Apparently If He Came To Take Her One Day Noone Would/Could Help Me. We Breastfeed So That Helps Me A Little But I Am Afraid. So We Made A Custody Agreement That He Would Only Pay 300 In Child Support And I Would Have Primary Custody, Otherwise He Could Not Afford To Come Visit Her. I Said Ok We Can Make That Work And I Was Really Relieved. But To Make That Legal We Have To Get It Mandated By A Judge, We Can'T Sign And Then Notarized Because That Apparently Has No Standing In A Case Like This. Every Lawyer We Have Seen Cost Way Above What We Can Afford Even With Offered Payment Plans. They Are Saying Around 1000 Down And I Make 200 Too Much For Low Income Assistance. He Says Fine Let'S Not Go To Court We Have Our Agreement. That Sounds Great But Should I Risk Him Finding Out He Can Take Her. What If He Finds Out While She Is Visiting With Him, How Do I Get Her Back? Advice?
Okay first off, i don't care if he is on the birth certificate or not, or what forms he has signed, if you haven't been to court to establish his paternity he doesn't have any. if he tries to take the child from you at any point in time your ace in the hole is "I'm not even sure he is the father", and poof he is just joe schmo off the street that took your kid. Now that is the dirty way to play it, but if push came to shove that is how you are going to have to do it.
It sounds like you guys are really trying to be civil and I HIGHLY encourage you to continue to BE civil, that is what is best for your child. I also encourage you to make this legal, because it will stop the headaches down the road. The reason why you can't just write it up yourself and ge it notarized is because there are certain things that every county requires in a custody agreement and if you don't have that exact language it isn't a binding agreement. that is where the Judge comes in, they aren't there to decide things like custody, that really wasn't suppose to be their role, they are interpreters of the law. For example I thought my husband should make his former girlfriend pay $200 a month in child support until the child was out of college, as long as they were a full time student. Sounds reasonable right? Well in GA no child support can go above the age of 19 and that is only if the kid is still in high school, so what i thought was reasonable was actually not allowed in GA and would have invalidated the agreement.
Your best avenue here is to become a mini-lawyer. It can be done and it's not too hard, you have to find the forms on line for YOUR STATE, because that is where the child lives so that is who has jurisdiction. You fill them out, you are the petitioner, he is the respondent, and then fill out the form. Go to the court house, file the form with the clerk and you will get a court date. Go to the court date with what you think are reasonable requests that you have both agreed to like the primary custody, and a detailed holiday schedule and child support....etc. and then let the Judge tell you what is okay and what isn't and what you are missing.
In GA the Judge usually has what is called a court lawyer. This person does the bidding of the Judge, so if you were to file your petition, and both show up for court, and agree to everything in detail the Judge will look it over and if everything looks good he/she could then give it to the court lawyer to draft up for you to sign. if you were in GA the whole thing would cost you about $250 to file and get him served with the papers....and in most states it is a lot less.
if you have questions on what to file the court of clerks office MIGHT help you over the phone. They strictly speaking aren't allowed to give you legal advice or tell you what to file, but they could tell you for example "You can't file a custody motion without also filing a child support motion at the same time"...see, some counties they are together and some are different. This will probably take a few trips to the court house to make sure you have everything but you can do that yourself and then just get it all sorted out and get him served with a time to be there.
