Should I Search For A Lawyer?
About Two Weeks Ago My Fiancé Was Verbally Reprimanded Because She &Quot;Uses The Restroom Frequently&Quot; Yet Her Boss Knows That She Has Medical Reasons As To Why She Uses It Often. Well, Today She Was Fired From Her Job And All They Told Her Was That She Was Not Meeting The Job Expectation. That Is It. There Is More Information That She Knows That I Don'T, Or Can'T Remember At This Time. But With That Alone Does Anyone Think We Should Be Looking Into A Lawyer? We Live In Los Angeles If That Makes A Difference. Advice Is Much Appreciated.
David, while it's unfair and not nice at all, I suspect they literally can fire her for going to the bathroom too often because her medical condition requires it.
Unless her medical condition is considered a disability, she's not in a protected class and might lose a law suit.
While I can't say I approve of the business's actions (and lack of tolerance and understanding), from their viewpoint they could be getting rid of someone who is not giving them 8 hours a day but 7.5 because of her needs.
That said, I'm not a lawyer. You can usually talk to one on the phone, explaining the situation and asking if you have a case, for no charge. I'd seek on who advertises that s/he specializes in employment or labor law.
Top 14 Law Schools?? ?
I Want To Attend A T14 Law School. For Financial Reasons I Am Attending Community College. I Plan On Transferring To Uc Berkeley In The Fall. Then Applying To My Choice Schools. Will The Admissions Look Down And Not Really Give Me A Shot Because I Started At A Community College?
Admissions will not look down on you because you started at a community college, particularly if you end up transferring to a high-caliber school such as UC Berkeley. Law schools will care much more about your GPA than where you got it, and they will care about your LSAT score more than your GPA (although having a low GPA will not really be ameliorated by having a high LSAT). For school in the T14, aim for a GPA of 3.6+ (the closer to a 4.0, the better), and an LSAT score of 170+ (172+ is even better).
Rather than worrying about the general "prestige" of your undergrad, if your aim is a T14 school, focus on creating a stellar applicant profile: high GPA, excellent LSAT, well-crafted essay and résumé, and stellar letters of recommendation.
Here are some additional thoughts about how you can create a solid applicant profile:
► Your personal statement. This is the creative essay you will write and include with your application. Many students write about why they want to attend law school; while this is definitely a worthwhile topic, it is not necessarily what you must write about. The personal statement is the one part of the application that you have complete control over, which is why it is also one the most important after your numerical indicators. It shows law schools your writing abilities, judgment in selecting a topic, and ability to engage an audience. The University of Chicago Law School has some great tips on what they look for and what to watch out for an avoid in a personal statement: http://www.law.uchicago.edu/node/1451
► Your letters of recommendation: I would say that these are second in importance to the personal statement, although they are certainly not unimportant by any means. The LORs allow law schools to hear others talk about your academic, personal, and extracurricular achievements and abilities. AdComs can tell a lot from your letters, what is written in them, and who wrote them for you. If it is obvious that you chose someone that doesn't know you at all, simply for the sake of having someone with an impressive title write your letter, then that speaks very poorly of you. If you chose someone who knows you extensively and wrote a glowingly positive letter filled with personal anecdotes, then that speaks highly of your choice. If you (God forbid) chose someone who writes a negative letter, then it calls into question your judgment. As you can see, it is not just about what's in the letter, but also what can be surmised from it that matters. A good letter should be lengthy, overwhelmingly positive, and filled with stories that only someone you have worked with closely would be able to write.
► Your résumé: This will tell law schools a number of things - What you were/are involved in, what you chose to showcase, how far you've risen within the leadership of any groups you are in, what you've done for employment, etc. It essentially tells the story of your life outside of the classroom. This is why it is important--it lets them have a glimpse into an area of your life that may not be addressed elsewhere (unless you choose to discuss a previous job or activity in your personal statement).
► Your transcript: Although your GPA will be the primary element that will be gleaned from your transcript, a number of other things can be surmised as well: Your major (and the relative difficulty of it), your grade trends (did they go up consistently? Did they start high and continue to stay elevated? Did they go down as you went through school?), and your course selection (is your transcript filled with elementary and introductory classes? Did you choose high-level courses?).
Although it is doubtful that any of these elements will hold as much weight as your GPA/LSAT combo, in the event that there are other qualified candidates with your same credentials (or in the event that you are a "splitter"--i.e., someone with a high LSAT but low GPA, or vice-versa), then these "softs" will play a much bigger role, and may even end up playing the determining role in your admissions decision, particularly if you're aiming for elite law schools.
I hope that helped! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
When Will Attorney General Gonzales Be Renditioned To One Of His Wonderful Torture-Free Countries?
Can Attorney-General Gonzales Be Prosecuted For The Damage
He Has Done To The American Constitution And The Bill Of Rights,
Not To Mention International Law? Where Is An Independent
Prosecutor When We Really Need One? A Major House-Cleaning
Is In Order/ As The Great American Writer Ambrose Bierce
Noted, &Quot; Patriotism Is The First Refuge Of The Soundrel.&Quot;
Gonzales is just another puppet for Cheney and Rove and has made his way to the position of Attorney General by keeping their Marionette out of trouble.
I believe he is no better than Bush as a puppet for BushCo
In the end I hope someday We The People run the entirety of BushCo out of town, even though they have cleaned out the treasury with their antics

Why We Need Asbestos Cancer Lawyer?
To be honest, the only ones I ever heard of was on TV. They advertise about mesothelioma and such. You won't have to say when you came in contact like the first post said because no one knows that for sure. These lawyers are for suing and I guess that's what you want. I don't know what state you live in, but check out the commercial on TV or have you tried a web site? Either way, I wish you the best.
ADD OK I looked it up. Boy, there's a lot. I got 2 numbers for you,
1-800-934-2921- This is the one advertised on TV.
1-888-787-6376-Mark & Associates, P.C.
If you want more, just put in Mesothelioma lawyers and a huge list comes up. Most of these lawyers have branches all over the country. Luck to you.
Sexual Harassment On Job After 2 Days Of Working There!!! I Need A Way To Find A Good Lawyer!!?
(This Job Is A Clothing Store, That Is Owned By The Main Manager'S Family)
I Was Hired March 9Th (2009) And I Started Work March 10Th (Tuesday).
The First Day, My Boss Had Been Asking Me What Size Pants I Wore, And Repeatedly Making Comments.
Here'S An Example
(I'M Wearing Some Jeans, And A Kinda Long Black T-Shirt)
&Quot;What Size Do You Wear?
&Quot;Size... 5... &Quot;
&Quot;You Don'T Look Like A Size 5.&Quot;
&Quot;I Know, It'S Because Of My Hips.&Quot;
He Then Pulled Up My Shirt In The Back And Made The Comment.
&Quot;Yeah, You Have A Big Butt&Quot;
He Then Told Me To Go Into The Stock Room In The Back To Separate Some School Clothes By Size.
So I Followed Him Back There To Do The Job.
I Was Standing Up Taking Bundles Of School Pants And Putting Them Into Another Box By The Sizes.
He Came Back, And Said, I'M Straining My Back. He Told Me To Get On The Floor On My Knees. And He Took The Pants, And Just Piled Them On The Floor. He Told Me, It Would Be Easier To Separate...
He Then Asked Me If He Can See My But. And I Told Him &Quot;No&Quot; And He Said,
&Quot;Aww, Cmon.&Quot; And He Pulled The Back Of My Pants And Looked At My Butt. And When He Did It, His Hand Actually Touched My Skin.
I Turned From Him, And He Leaned Toward Me And Grabbed My Butt And Said &Quot;Well Can I Grab It?&Quot;
I Told Him No Again,
What Should I Really Do?
If You Want To Talk To Me One On One, You Can Message My Yahoo Messenger, I Know That There Can Only Be One Response To A Question. =/
Ok, first off this isn't your fault. It's your boss, so of course you're going to answer his questions. If were going to be rude to him, you risked getting fired. Anyway, is there an HR that you can go to? A boss above him? You SHOULD NOT/CANNOT talk to him about this. You've already made it clear to him that you do not like or appreciate his comments to you. So, go home and write it down/type it out. The day, time of day the incident happened (if you remember) and what exactly happened and what was said. What he's doing is illegal and if he's doing it to you, he's probably doing it to other employees. I would look into reporting him to HR. Do whatever you need to to go above him and report it. They'll ask you a series of questions - take your notes you made and then ask him about it. They'll tell him there has been a sexual harassment suit filed against him, but they won't say wo filed it. Good luck and hopefully you can get this a.s.s. hole fired.
