3 Methods To Know You've Picked The Right Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to pass through a legal court system, specifically if you lack confidence within your legal team. Allow me to share three important methods to recognize that you've hired the proper lawyer: 1. They Concentrate On Your Type Of Case Legislation is frequently tricky and this requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. If you want an attorney, look for one that deals with the matter you're facing. Even when a member of family or friend recommends you make use of a firm they are fully aware, should they don't have got a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. Whenever your attorney is surely an expert, especially in the difficulty you're facing, you understand you've hired the right one. 2. The Lawyer Has A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it may be challenging to win an instance, specifically if the team working for you has minimal to no experience. Search for practices which have won numerous cases that pertain to yours. Even though this is no guarantee which you case will probably be won, it gives you a far greater shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In case the attorney you've chosen takes time to listen to your concerns and react to your inquiries, you've probably hired the right choice. Irrespective of how busy these are or how small your concerns seem from the perspective, it's important that they respond to you within a caring and timely manner. From the point of take a look at a common citizen who isn't familiar with the judicial system, court cases might be pretty scary you will need updates as well as seem like you're portion of the solution. Some attorneys are just a lot better to both you and your case as opposed to others. Make certain you've hired the best team for your personal circumstances, to ensure that you can put the matter behind you immediately. Faith with your legal representative is the first step to winning any case.

I Left My Now Ex Spouse Due To Domestic Violence And I Need Help In Deciding Whether I Need A Lawyer To File The Paperwork Or If I Should Do It Myself. I Have Evidence Such As Police Reports, Restraining Orders, Police Photos And Court Paperwork. I Did Not File Sooner Due To Finances. I Have Since Remarried And Expecting A Baby In A Few Months But Should I Try And To File Myself Or Use A Lawyer?
I think you mean I-751.
Yes, you definitely need a lawyer. This is not a do-it-yourself matter. Since you have remarried and didn't file sooner you have additional problems. When you divorced your ex and had a conditional green card your green card pretty much expired the day you got divorced making you illegal. You have a lot of problems and you definitely need a lawyer to sort it out.
Immigration Issue: Legal Advice Please?
I Just Recently Married My Best Friend Of Four Years (In April) She Was Brought To The U.S Illegally At The Age Of Two. I Am A Member Of The U.S Marine Corps, Will This Hinder My Military Career? I'M Constantly Worried About Her Being Deported, So I Want To Petition For Her To Become Legal. We Have Spoken To Several Immigration Lawyers. They Tell Us That She Will Have To Leave The U.S, But That They Don'T Recommend That I Petition For Her Right Now Because She Has Such A &Quot;Weak Case.&Quot; If She Has To Leave The Country, I'M Definitely Going With Her. She Is In The Middle Of Obtaining Her Degree So I Need Legal Advice. Should I Petition For Her Now, Will She Be Able To Come Back After She Leaves The U.S, And If So, How Long Will She Have To Stay In Mexico For? Thanks. No Hate Please, I Will Report You. I Need Serious Legal Advice Only.
No, it will not hinder your career unless you have a security clearance.
You should be worried about her being deported. She's one traffic stop away from a trip back to her own country.
The lawyers are all correct. She cannot adjust status in the USA because she has no status and entered the country "uninspected."
It's estimated that she'll spend up to 6 months in Mexico. In addition to the petition she'll need a Wavier of Inadmissibility and she can't apply for it until she's been interviewed in Mexico. Further, you WILL need the assistance of an immigration attorney when it comes to getting the waiver.
This is not legal advice, it's information based on personal experience.
Legal Or Illegal Life Insurance Policy?
My Friend Says It Is Legal And Accepted To Be Able To Take Out A Life Insurance Policy On An Adult Without Their Knowledge Or Signature And I Say That It Is Not Allowed.
Your friend has been watching way too many murder movies. In holywood it maybe legal, but in the real world it wont happen. Take your friend through this logic:
Insurance companies are all in the busienss of making money, like any other business. Would it be smart to issue policies (obligations to pay) without knowing anything about who you are insuraning? Things like health checks, drivers licenses, social security numbers are all needed to verify that the person is a true person. Other wise someone could theoreticaly take out a life insurance on a non existant person, then claim this person died one day after the contestation period (two years), and be paid the face amount of the policy! That is not a good way for the insurance company to make money... maybe for the person buying the policy, but not the insurance company.
Oh and by the way, there are federal laws against buying insurance on someone without their consent. There are Third party owned life insurance policies... these are very dangerous and most often scams. This is were someone has had a life insurance policy, and "sells" the policy to someone they don't know. there is a transfer of ownership, where the premiums are picked up by the third party, and beneficiary becomes the new owner. There is a federal look back period of three years when it comes to estate taxes, so if the person dies within three years of "selling" the policy the Face Amount of the policy is included in their gross estate. This can cause huge tax problems down the road. If anyone out here reading this is approached by someone who wants to buy your life insurance policy, beware!

It's discrimination if they're doing it because you are disabled.
It sounds like you need to talk to legal aid: http://www.legal-aid.org/en/home.aspx They can help you find an attorney to talk to, even if you can't afford an attorney on your own.
You can also try contacting your center for independent living. Here's a resource for finding such a center near you. http://www.bcm.edu/ilru/html/publication... Part of the problem with the landlord may be communication. Many people don't realize the deaf communicate in a different language (different syntax and grammar) than the hearing. It's called ASL. A center for independent living might help you find an interpreter or other resources in the community.
If you feel you are being discriminated against because you are disabled, you can file a complaint with HUD. Here's info on how to do that: http://portal.hud.gov/portal/page/portal...
You don't have to move out right away. In order to evict you, he will have to serve you with written notice and then file in court and you both appear before the judge to give your sides of the case. If the landlord has no legal cause to evict you, then the judge will rule against him. It's very important to get good legal advice on how to proceed. That's why you need to contact legal aid.
--- edited to add ---
Beware advice on the Internet. People will offer it whether they know what they are talking about or not. For example, several people mentioned the ADA, but the ADA only applies to housing if the housing is owned by a government, ie public housing, in which case you'd be dealing with the housing authority, not a landlord.
The correct law in housing cases is usually the Fair Housing Amendments Act.
Contact a real lawyer. You need real help to protect yourself. Call legal aid.
Intoxilyzer 5000 Hose Broke During Dui/Dwi Testing In Minnesota. Do I Have A Defense?
I Was Charged With A Dui. I Was Taken Into The Station And Did All The Neccesarily Procedures. My First Test Showed A .286 (No Way I Was That High), The Second Sample On The Test Not Meeting The .02 Agreement, Showed A .263. After The Test, The Officer Noticed The Hose Was Broken, Or Something To That Extent. The Last Test Ending At 2:26 A.M. He Then Was Working On The Machine, Changing The Hose I Believe ( I'M Not An Expert On These Machines). At 3:12 My Final Reported Value Was .23 G/210 L. In The Police Report I Would Have Assumed That The Officer Would Have Noted That The Machine &Quot;Broke&Quot; Ie: Hose Breaking, But There Was No Note Of It In The Police Report. I Know There Is A Lot Of Speculation On The Accuracy Of The Intolyzer... Could There Be Human Error? I Have A Lawyer But Am Looking For Some Information On My Own. It Seems Like The Two Tests, First Being .289 And The Second Going Down To A .23 In A 40 Minute Period Seems Very Strange And Almost Like The Test Was Innacurate. Any Advice/Suggestions Would Be Helpful...
You might have a defense, until the prosecutor plays the footage of your field sobriety test and your breathalyzer test. If, however, in those tests you appear sober then the footage of the officer playing with the machine would likely sway the jury. Juries are confused by breathalyzer machines. The prosecutor may put on an expert witness to testify as to the accuracy of the machine who, ironically, will only confuse the jury more. In the end, the jury will make their determination by what they see in the videotape.
Is Homeland Security And Law Enforcement The Same Thing?
Homeland security is facet of criminal justice policing that primarily focuses on investigation, interception, and detection of external threats (customs, immigration, smuggling, foreign terrorist threat), as opposed to state and local policing that focus on domestic crimes against persons and property. A Bachelor's degree is required for federal special agent positions (very few exceptions) and the maximum age is 37. Any major is acceptable, but CJ, Computer Science, Sociology, Accounting, or Psych may stand you in better stead for most positions. Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants, and there are always more applicants than positions. The FBI likes lawyers and accountants, but they hire from various backgrounds, with at least 3 years of substantive employment (http://www.fbijobs.gov/). The same could be said for the Secret Service, their primary duties (outside of protection) involve financial crimes and counterfeiting. Any responsible employment may acceptable, but law enforcement may be beneficial (particularly investigative rather than patrol). Other federal agency job announcements should be available at https://my.usajobs.gov/login.aspx.
The FBI in particular needs people capable of investigating major frauds and conspiracies involving numerous business and technical occupations and professions; whereas, local police are more oriented to street crime. Federal agents must be capable of understanding and communicating at a level above that usually expected from patrol officers. Federal agencies are looking for people who fit in at all social strata, and the expectations are greater with regard to preparation of reports and affidavits. In my experience, state and local officers have their affidavits written by prosecutors; whereas, federal agents write their own.
Being a military officer will normally be advantageous, and military service usually provides veteran preference in the hiring process. However, enlisted service will not necessarily enhance one’s prospects, unless in a specialized position or exemplary service is documented. Military police assignments will not necessarily provide an advantage over infantry assignments, and the branch of service is not necessarily important. Being a practicing attorney or accountant would also place one in a good position. Forensic computer expertise and language capabilities are valued in all agencies.
You are more likely to be successful if you do not restrict yourself to one agency. Moreover, agents get hired from other agencies regularly. If you have proven yourself in another agency (particularly federal), you will have an advantage for FBI hiring. Being a police officer may be helpful, depending on personal performance, assignments, and agency reputation.
I recommend that people major in psych and minor in CJ (even though I majored in CJ for a BS and PhD, with a Masters in management [sponsored by and on government time]). The academic specialization for a graduate degree is not necessarily important.
GPA (above 3.5 is a plus), testing, physical fitness, work experience, possibly a polygraph, ability to communicate orally and in writing, possibly physical test results, and graduate degrees are what determine who gets hired. And, I repeat, there are always more applicants than there are positions.
There are numerous special agent positions (see list below, not all have full arrest, search, and seizure authority), in what was and I assume still is the 1811 job series (1810 are unarmed investigators without arrest authority). There are also law enforcement related positions in the Dept of Homeland Security and other agencies, such as inspector positions or Border Patrol agents, that could be open to those with 2 years of college or less. And, there are federal police officers within federal agencies (e.g., Dept of Veterans Affairs, Treasury, Federal Protective Service). Agencies:
ATF, Customs and Border Protection (uniform wearing: Border Patrol Agent, Officers), DEA, Dept of Def, Dept of State, Dept of Homeland Sec (ICE, TSA)
Dept of Labor, EPA, FBI, FDA, Fish & Wildlife (few positions, many applicants), Inspector General Offices within departments and/or agencies, IRS, Marshals Service, Secret Svc, Securities Exchange Commission, and each branch of the Armed Forces (some civilian, some active duty).
Apply at as many places as possible, and accept the first offer. Then, if that’s not where you want to be, keep applying to the agency you want.
