Finding An Experienced Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will find that there are countless lawyers in your town that advertise they focus on your type of case. This can make the entire process of finding one with significant amounts of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, should you follow the following it is possible to define your search to the right one out of almost no time. The first step is to generate a list of the lawyers that are listed in your area specializing in your situation. When you are making this list you ought to only include those you have an excellent vibe about based on their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down by taking some time evaluating their website. There you must be able to find just how many years they are practicing and several general details about their success rates. At this stage your list ought to have shrunken further to the people that you felt had professional websites and an appropriate level of experience. You should then spend some time to search for independent reviews for each attorney. Be sure you look at the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The information inside the reviews gives you a sense of the way they connect to their clientele and how much time they invest into each case that they are focusing on. Finally, you will want to meet with at least the very last three lawyers who have the credentials you are looking for. This provides you with the time to really evaluate how interested these are in representing both you and your case. It can be important to follow every one of these steps to ensure that you hire a company containing the correct level of experience to obtain the perfect outcome.

Buying A Business... Need A Good Lawyer..?
We Are In The Process Of Buying A Business And Need A Good Lawyer In The Melbourne Area That Can Have A Look Through The Contract Etc... Can Anyone Recommend One That They Have Delt With? If So A Contact Name & Number Of That Person Would Be Fantastic!!
The best way I've found to get referrals to quality professionals is to ask another person in the same profession. For instance, if you want a good business attorney, try asking a divorce lawyer or real estate lawyer. Or call a business lawyer in Perth to ask about someone in Melbourne. They know each other better than any consumer ever will, so I find their recommendations to be more reliable. Good luck.

I Also Just Need An Idea Of How Long This Person May Possibly Be In Jail For.
considering our prisons/jails are overflowing with criminals who get out on parole earlier than their assigned sentencing, there is no guarantee when this guy gets out on the streets to harm more people.
the only way you will know for sure when he is released is to sign up for vine-link as a victim of this prisoner.
they will contact you by email as soon as this prisoner is released so you will be instantly informed.
true you wont have time to pack everything up and move out of your state but you could do that as of now if that is your concern or you could get a restraining order for ten years against this guy since he has been a threat to your safety.
Yes, it's true restraining orders are no guarantee that he wont hurt or harasses you again but if you choose to document each time he comes near you or that he breaks his parole , document the proof, phone the police and they will come and take a report from you and put it on the prosecutors desk. if there are enough complaints of documented proof, then this guy will be thrown back into prison.
true it usually takes 3 or 5 documented sources and sometimes even much more before this goes into effect but then it's a start.
the choice is yours and i wish you good luck
Qualifications For Law School?
I'M A Freshman Attending A Big 10 School, And I Have Decided That I Want To Go To Law School After I Graduate From College. I Tended To Underachieve In High School (I Had The Highest Act In My Class But My Class Rank Was 103 Out Of 500), But I Plan On Taking College More Seriously. I Know That I'M Smart Enough To Succeed In A Top Law Program, But I'M Not Sure What Things I Need To Be Doing In Order To Be Accepted Into One. What Things Should I Be Doing In College In Order To Make Myself An Attractive Candidate For A Top Law Program?
1) High school GPA/resume
Will this matter when you apply to law school? Well, let me ask you something: did you save some baby mink whales while training for the 2012 Olympics? No? Then don’t worry about high school. The only part of your law school application that will be reflective of your high school experience is the undergrad that you decide to attend and to which you gain admission.
2) What should I major in?
If your goal is to set yourself up to get into the best law school you can, then you want to pick a major in which you’ll receive the highest GPA. Much more than the classes you take, the degree you receive, and the major you pick, your GPA will determine law school admissions decisions. Avoid basketweaving or Simpsons-ology and any other major will be, more or less, equal in the eyes of law schools.
I would recommend finding something in which you have a great interest, as then going to classes will be interesting and you’ll have an easier time focusing. Picking a major you love will afford you the chance to get a great GPA without having to ‘try’, as it will feel more like you’re doing something you want than trying to learn difficult and obscure material.
As a quick aside, most pre-law or legal studies programs are viewed as something as a joke by those associated with law schools. They’re generally law school lite, only without the great taste of Diet Dr. Pepper (because you kids don’t know what Miller Lite tastes like, right?). Most law professors view the knowledge gained in them (and the writing skills developed) as a detriment to a proper legal education, as you have to unlearn some of the stuff you think you know.
3) Are there any specific classes I should take in college to prepare me for law school?
You should be taking classes that focus on writing, analysis, and logic. While you’ll have to relearn how to write and analyze when you get to law school (legal research and writing is different than anything you’ll do up until then), having a baseline off of which to work (a knowledge of grammar, for instance) will give you a leg up. And logic will be the same, whether it’s in an undergrad course, the LSAT, or a class on Contract Law (which can be very logic-intensive).
4) What about this whole LSAT thing?
Your GPA is important, but your LSAT score (aka the Law SAT) is the largest factor in your application package. When the time rolls around, make sure you prepare for it. The test doesn’t ask you questions based on knowledge – it asks you questions to test your ability to think and reason. Those are skills that you can develop by properly prepping for the exam. While you’re years away from that (I repeat, you’re years away from it!), practice books, old tests, and LSAT classes are the best way to get ready for the exam that will, more or less, decide your law school fate.
Seriously, though, go do something foolish whenever you start to think about the LSAT. You shouldn’t worry about it until your Junior year.
5) And extracurriculars?
Find some extracurriculars in which you have an intense interest. Sports, drama, art, Future Farmers of America – wherever your passion lies, go for it. Pick the ones in which you have a serious interest and stick with them, building up a great resume that highlights something interesting about yourself. Fill leadership positions. That will show your potential as a leader, which is something that law schools love in their applicants.
6) Anything else?
Enjoy college. A lot. Seriously, have a good time.
But not too good of a time.
Skip those parties that you know will get busted by the cops, don’t give an officer lip if he asks you for some ID when you’re drunk, and make sure that you keep your grades up. If your average beer consumption per day is higher than your GPA, it’s time to refocus (but, on the other hand, impressive!).
And good luck!
The American Bar Association?
When Taking The Bar Exam, Is It The Same For All Type Of Lawyers? (Family, Corporate, Personal Injury Etc.) Or Does Each Type Of Lawyer Get Their Own Bar Exam?
All type of lawyers get the same, although the bar exam changes from state to state.
Construction Law Question?
Would A Bachelor'S In Construction Management And Technology Give Someone A &Quot;Step Up&Quot; In The Construction Law Practice, Opposed To Someone With A Ba? Or Does It Really Not Matter? Please Give Details. I Am Completing My Senior Year In The Bs Construction Management And Technology Program At My University And Am Really Contemplating Law School To Specialize In Construction And Land-Use Law.
Of course your degree in Construction Management and Technology would be very helpful for a practice focused in that area. You may even qualify as an expert in the area and pull in some big bucks as a witness. But I have seen it happen that people entering law school with the idea they will focus on a particular career get sidetracked or discover other areas of the law they like more. Just do it and see where it takes you.
Do I Need A Lawyer? I Wanted To Know Whether I Need A Lawyer To Convert A B1/B2 Visa Into A F1 Student Visa?
I Wanted To Know Whether I Need A Lawyer To Convert A B1/B2 Visa Into A F1 Student Visa? I Have Contacted A University Of My Choice And Was Told That I Can Do It On My Own, But Advised To Get A Lawyer For Precaution. What Is The Cost For This Type Of Service If I Hired A Lawyer And Does Anyone Knows Of An Experienced Lawyer In This Field? I Lived In Metro Detroit, Mi. Thank You For Reading And Advice!
no, you don't need a lawyer. once your school has accepted you, issued you an I-20 and registered you in the SEVIS database, assuming you remain in status on your B1/B2, you can file an I-539 with USCIS to change status from B1/B2 to F1. chances are it will be approved, but it's not guaranteed. if not, you'll have to leave to get a student visa to return. you won't be able to start class until it is approved though, and that might be your bigger problem. it will probably be faster once you have the form and are registered to apply for a student visa outside of the US. check out www.uscis.gov for more information and forms.
