Step one is to create a list of the lawyers that are listed in your neighborhood focusing on your position. While you are making this list you must only include those you have an effective vibe about based on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down by using some time evaluating their site. There you should certainly find the amount of years they have been practicing and several general information regarding their success rates.

How Do You Find The Best Lawyer For Your Case?
Where Do You Look, Ask, Etc.?
That's the best question I've seen in a long time, but the answer isn't pleasant. There is no easy way, and the game is rigged to keep it that way.
There are no "consumer reports" on lawyers or doctors, and their professional associations fight to keep it that way. You must rely on word-of-mouth, ridiculous advertisements, and time spent doing things the hard way. You didn't mention civil or criminal, and there are some differences.
Lawyers are kind of like employees, and if you have the time and means, you should "interview" several of them to see if they pass your requirements. Many states have guidelines concerning this: a lawyer may be required to provide a free consultation (usually 1/2 hour) to meet with you and you tell him what you want and he tells you about himself.
If it's a criminal case, then you want to know specific things: is he qualified to appear in the court hearing your case, has he handled similar cases to yours, and did he win or lose. These are all public records, but they are somewhat hard to find and hard to understand by yourself. Your best bet may be to (get this) hire a lawyer or at least a paralegal to do this research for you. They have access to the databases containing the records, and they understand what they are looking for.
Finally, bear in mind that most lawyers are not completely corrupt. They usually will tell you if they feel it might not be a good fit, or they think someone else might have a better chance of helping you.
What Do I Say?I Have To Meet An Influential Lady Tomorrow To Help Find A Job,Or Internship At A Law Firm?
I Am Broke, And I Don'T Know If I Should Be Looking For A Job, A Part Time Job Or Just For An Internship Since Am A Law Student.What Do I Do?She'S A Former First Lady Of Ghana.
As a law student, your primary duty is to your education. So, you do not want to do any work which will infringe on the major time needed to study. The very, very best job for a law student is with a law firm. That way you can actually see what you are studying in real life.
As for the decision of the type of work. You may not be able to do justice in your education if you work full time. Unless the full time is only during the summer break. If you work for a law firm, you may want to work on a part-time or per hour basis. Offering to work part-time/per hour whenever the firm needed you, on their call, may be helpful to the law firm who needs someone but not on a regular basis.
While internships for law students are great, remember they pay nothing. So you need to decide if you can afford to work for free.
What you should say to the First Lady of Ghana is "I am honored to meet you". Do not expect her to be able to find you a job, she may only be able to get you an initial interview. Be grateful for whatever she offers. If she does get you in, remember the thank you note and that your work will reflect of your mentor. Good luck.

Ugh, I'm going through a custody battle with my son's father. He skips visits, makes other plans during scheduled visits, then claims he's being kept from his child. He also talks to me in a very inappropriate way.
My advice to you is first of all, if you don't have an attorney, get one, find a way to get one! Document everything, every little thing, and record his voice mails and phone calls. Save emails and text messages, type up your texts as a back up. Detach yourself emotionally, you two are business partners and that's it. Try to shift your communication to email, it's easier to keep your emotion out of it, easier than recording, and it serves as written documentation for court.
I would suggest you draft a letter to him and mail it certified mail. Let him know in the letter that you want your child to have him in their life. That you have tried to work with him on visits but that there have been so many issues, proceed to list those (non-emotional, just matter of fact). Tell him you understand his work schedule fluctuates, and that you have a busy schedule as well along with trying to work around the child's naps etc, and that it is important that there be a schedule for the visits. Tell him you are open to suggestions, but that for the time being you are offering Sundays at 2pm for 2 hours (for example), until another agreement can be reached, or until the case goes to court. You need to set some clear boundaries with him. Let him know that his angry outbursts continue to be an issue and that this needs to stop because you two are going to be dealing with each other for many years to come and that you feel it would be best for your child if you two can be civil and respectful to each other.
You also need to do a little letting go here. Let him seek you out if he wants to know how the child is doing, unless there is an emergency of course. He needs to be acting like a parent if he claims he wants to parent this child. Don't forget to document if he isn't asking about the child or to see them. Keep convos with him only about the child and visits. Don't let him bully you. Let him know in the letter that if he continues to talk to you that way that you will have to insist all communication will be via email. Also, keep in mind if he is showing that he is unwilling to cooperate and you are trying to work with him, the mediator will see this and this will help you in court.
ETA: the reason I suggested the certified letter is because this is something my attorney had me do when my son's father claimed he wanted more time for visits. He told my to let my son's father know that of course I wanted him in my child's life and that I'm concerned because of all of the problems with the visits he has already had available to him. He had me list out all of the visits he's missed, cut short, etc. He also had me recite other problems like dad doesn't take care of our son when he visits (his visits are in my home), doesn't know how to deal with his serious allergies, etc. My attorney said this is great evidence for court. In your case you could add that the child doesn't know him very well and how important you feel it is for the child to get to know him better in an environment that he/she feels comfortable and safe before the away visits begin, that you really want this to be a painless transition for the child and you hope he can understand and work with you on this for the child's sake. You need to remember that until this goes to court you do have a right to lay some ground rules here, and this is why documenting is so important because these losers will go into court and cry that they have been denied access to the child even when they had a visit scheduled and decided something else was more important. Good luck!
Ok So I Need Some Advice. Its A Complicated Situation So I Am Sorry If It Takes A While To Explain, There Are A Lot Of Details.
Recently My Apartments Mailboxes Have Been Getting Broken Into. Apparently They Gave Out The Master Key To A Resident Who Had Lost Their Own Key And That Resident Kept The Master Key And Has Been Stealing Peoples Mail.
The Apartment Managers And Owner Were Ordered By The Post Office To Have All The Mail Held And The Post Office Center. No One Told Any Of The Residents. There Were No Signs, No Email, No Phone Call, Nothing. I Finally Desided To Go And Ask The Manager If They Were Holding My Mail For Some Reason And They Said &Quot;Oh Ya A Bunch Of Mail Was Stolen So Its Been Held For About A Month And The Post Office.&Quot;
I Have An Insurance Card That Comes Once A Month And Was Not Able To Obtain It Since I Did Not Know My Mail Was Being Held. I Thought It Just Hadnt Come Yet. Anyways I Had To Go To The Doctor Because I Seriously Injured My Ankle. Since I Didnt Have My Insurance Card I Had To Go To A Crappy Hospital And Pay Out Of Pocket For The Time Being. I Was Also Told That I Need To Go To Physical Therapy Three Times A Week For Four Months Starting Immediately.
After Hearing That I Desided I Need To Go And Check At The Post Office To Get My Insurance Card. The Post Office Said I Had No Mail. My Mail Had Been Held For Almost A Month And A Half And I Had No Mail? I Was Sent Birthday Money And My Insurance Card And School And Legal Documents. The Post Office Said Someone Must Have Stolen Them When The Mail Was Still At The Apartments.
I Now Have To Wait A Week To Get My Insurance Card So I Can Start Physical Therapy.
Ok So Here Is My Question: If My Ankle Gets Worse And Or Had Permanent Damage, Can The Apartment Complex Be Held Responsible Since It Is There Fault I Could Not Get My Insurance Card In Time And It Was There Fault The Mail Was Stolen?
. Oh And They Knew Mail Was Stolen And Did Not Report It To The Residents.
How about calling a few lawyers who offer a free consultation and ask them what they think of the situation. You definitely have a right to get your mail and anyone who tampers with it (such as the theif(ves) who broke into the mailbox) has committed a federal offense. Hoping that you get some resolve.
How To File Divorce And Child Custody Very Economically?
I Wanna File Divorce And Child Custody With Tight Budget
there is no such thing as a very economically divorce! :) You'll have to pay no matter what.
You can save some $$ if you do most of the work:
1. Know what you want out of it. This means, go to your library and get educated about divorce, caring for children of divorce, financial advice and try to understand what the calculation for child support entails. Read a lot, talk to people, get more info from the internet, go to support groups... etc. If you don't know what you want, you'll know after the above.
2. Get all your financial information together and that means not just making 4 copies of everything, but preparing a truthful statement of expenses and a truthful list of assets and liabilities. Be honest.
3. Keep a journal, jot down the reasons why you want child custody when the child has another parent.... what's the real reason, want to get even? want to make your spouse angry? want to punish your spouse? or is it because you think your spouse is not a good parent?? If it's for all personal and selfish reasons, get over it. A child is or will be suffering already. The last thing he/she will want is to be the punching bag in this mess. Your child, like any other, wants their family together, wants a happy life with both mom and dad... be compassionate towards someone who did not ask for the mess you two are in. And know that he/she will be suffering from this for a long, long time. So, if at all possible, be kind, compassionate, considerate and rise above any desire to punish, get even or.. even to think that you're the best parent. (unless of course there is a really good reason why this is necessary). So write your thoughts about why custody is an issue... but know that whenever custody is involved, you'll be throwing money to the lawyers and you'll be adding more stress to your child.
4. Ask around about lawyers in your area... interview a few. Make sure you know the facts .. yours and your spouse's. How much do you owe on your house, what $benefits you get from your employer.. etc., etc... and know what you want.
5. Good luck... Divorce my friend, is never going to be cheap. it's emotionally expensive and financially ... it's just draining. IF you could save your marriage, do it.
hey.. and don't bad mouth your spouse. That is the one thing that will prevent you from having child custody. KEEP YOUR PROBLEMS, FIGHTS,ETC... OUT OF YOUR CHILD'S HEARING RANGE.........
Legal Laws Concerning Adults And Minors?
My Friend Is Dating A Guy She Is Only 14 (Turning 15 In August) And He Is Turning 18 In June. I'M Trying To Get Her To Wait To Date Him Until She Is Older But She Won'T Listen To Me! They Haven'T Done Anything Sexual Yet But Still... I Was Wondering If There Are Any Laws Or Something That Could Stop Her From Dating Them. How Much Can They Do? (Missouri Laws)
There are no laws concerning dating in any state. The laws only apply to sex. In Missouri, you can only be charged with statutory rape if you are over 21 and the minor is under 17, or if you are over 18 and the minor is under 14. So, they can legally do whatever they want. However, if her parents forbid it they can possibly take out a restraining order depending on circumstances.
