Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will find that there are many lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise which they specialize in your kind of case. This will make the procedure of finding one with a great deal of experience a bit of a challenge. However, if you follow the following it will be possible to limit your pursuit on the right one in almost no time. The first step is to create a set of the lawyers that happen to be listed in your town that specialize in your needs. While you are making this list you should only include those which you have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by taking a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you will be able to find just how many years they have been practicing plus some general specifics of their success rates. At this time your list ought to have shrunken further to individuals that you felt had professional websites and an appropriate level of experience. You should then spend some time to check out independent reviews of each and every attorney. Be sure you look at the reviews rather than counting on their overall rating. The information inside the reviews gives you a solid idea of how they communicate with their clients and the time they invest into each case that they are working on. Finally, you will need to talk to no less than the past three lawyers which have the credentials you would like. This will provide you with time to truly evaluate how interested these are in representing both you and your case. It can be imperative that you follow many of these steps to ensure that you find someone containing the proper level of experience to obtain the best possible outcome.

Can You Be Honest With Your Lawyer?
Say You Killed A Guy, And You Hire A Lawyer To Defend Yourself. If You Tell Your Lawyer The Truth, That You Are Guilty, Will They Still Protect You And Help You Come Up With A Story, Or Are They Obligated To Tell On You?
Thanks In Advance,
Your lawyer would do everything to protect your constitutional rights and make certain you received a fair trial.
If you confessed to your lawyer about a crime you had committed and the lawyer repeated that confession, that lawyer would be disbarred. (Meaning he would lose his license to practice law and would never be allowed to represent clients again.) Attorney/client privilege also means that an attorney can never be required to testify against his client.
An attorney who would help you "come up with a story" could also be disbarred. Attorneys are required to act with something called "candor to the tribunal." This means an attorney is not allowed to knowingly present testimony or evidence he knows is untrue.
This doesn't mean an attorney can't do some pretty interesting things with the case. But the focus would be on attacking the evidence and the police officers. (This worked rather well in the O.J. Simpson murder trial. The defense attorneys couldn't put O.J. on the witness stand, but they focused the defense on attacking the evidence and the credibility of the detectives.)
I Was Involved In An Accident Sometime Ago, The Insurance Settled But My Attorney Has Not Paid The Medical Bil?
Are you saying the insurance company paid the money to your attorney? That doesn't make any sense to me. Who's medical bill? Yours or someone who sued you? If it was your medical bill and the insurance company paid your attorney who should have in turn paid your medical bill and hasn't done it, I would be calling that attorney and telling him or her that you're going to report them to your state bar association. I'm sure the health care provider would like to be paid and is probably coming after you, right?
My Civil Appeal Is A Complicated Case What Do I Do If I Can'T Afford An Attorney?
My Financial Means Are Limited, And There Were Two Cases Ruled In The Same Manner. (Same District Two Different Court Houses) My Parents Manipulated The Legal System For Their Own Personal Gain. By Then Filing In Two Different Court Houses To Serve Their One Purpose, I Wouldn'T Know Where To Begin.
"My Civil Appeal is a complicated case what do I do if I can't afford an attorney? My financial means are limited, and there were two cases ruled in the same manner. (same district two different court houses) My parents manipulated the legal system for their own personal gain. By then filing in two different court houses to serve their one purpose, I wouldn't know where to begin."
There is no quick answer to your question. And it would help to know what kind of cases were heard, what the issues were, etc.
You generally have a certain period of time to appeal a final ruling-- 30 days comes to mind, but it varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. And, usually, your trial record will have to show that you made timely objections to the issues of law that you disagreed about and that you exhausted your remedies at the trial level (filing for a reconsideration, for example) in order for you to appeal on those issues. The only other reason to appeal is that the judge's ruling was against the manifest weight of the evidence, but Courts of Appeals do not often overturn a trial court judge for that since the presumption is that he did his job correctly.
You'll have to file your leave to appeal within the allotted time. And then you'll have to present the Court of Appeals for that jurisdiction with your appeal-- including a complete record of your case(s). That means the legal arguments with legal citations to back them up and a complete case file and transcripts from the Court Recorder. If you are poor, you may be able to file "in forma pauperis" ("in the form of a pauper") where the courts will assume the costs of your court record and waive certain formal requirements in filing your papers (doesn't need to be typed, doesn't need to be on particular paper with particular fonts, etc.). Persons filing in forma pauperis are also usually given a great deal of latitude in framing their arguments in their filings.
Appeals practice is a specialty in itself, and many trial lawyers send their appeal's cases to those specialists. So, you are in for a steep learning curve with little chance of success against a trained attorney.

Do I Need A Lawyer For A Petty Theft Charge?
I Was Arrested For Attempting To Steal A $ 1.75 Can Of Beer From Cvs (Really Stupid I Know , Was Really Wasted At The Time And Not Thinking). I Was Arrested And Taken To The Local Precinct And Given A Paper With A Court Date. They Released Within The Hour. I`Ve Never Been Arrested Or Fined For Anything In My Life, Never In Trouble With The Law . Should I Get A Lawyer For The Court Date Or Can I Just Represent My Self ? Is This A Charge That I Can Be Sent To Jail For ?
You don't really a lawyer, but if you think you need one, get one. I doubt that you will be sent to jail, just a fine, and possibly probation.
Do Divorce Lawyers Really Help?
I Know That A Divorce Lawyer Helps With All The Legal Paperwork, But At The End Of The Day Do They Really Have Much Influence On How The Judge Will Rule The Divorse Case?
Problem is judges used to be lawyers so they feel like you don't respect the law if you are not represented by someone trained in the law. Judges have little patience for someone that does not know all of the procedures that take place in a courtroom so 'no' I do not think in general a lawyer is any better but in the eyes of the judge I think 'yes' having a lawyer is better.
How Do I Know If A Us Immigration Attorney Is Any Good?
Be very careful to check each attorney’s credentials before you hire them. Ask to see each attorney’s Bar license if you don’t see it hanging on the wall. Look them up on their state’s Bar website and look at their record. If they don’t have a Bar license and they don’t show up on that Bar’s website, then don’t hire them! There are lots of “notarios,” petition preparers, and visa consultants out there who are not real attorneys. They will offer to help you, but they will only cause you more trouble. When you try to choose the best immigration attorney, you want to be certain the person you hire is in fact a real attorney!
Another way to find out each attorney’s reputation is to Google each name and see what results come up. Look for reviews of that law office or lawyer. Ask to speak with former clients or ask other immigration attorneys about the attorney’s reputation. Check to see if the attorney is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), which is a well-known international organization that provides resources and assistance to its members.
