Finding An Experienced Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will find that there are many lawyers in your town that advertise that they are experts in your kind of case. This can make the entire process of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the following it is possible to define your pursuit to the correct one out of almost no time. Step one is to generate a list of the lawyers which can be listed in your area focusing on your position. While you are causeing this to be list you ought to only include those that you may have a great vibe about depending on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by taking a little while evaluating their website. There you must be able to find how many years they are practicing and some general specifics of their success rates. At this moment your list ought to have shrunken further to people that you just felt had professional websites and an appropriate amount of experience. You must then take time to check out independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure to browse the reviews rather than relying upon their overall rating. The information inside the reviews provides you with a sense of how they communicate with their customers and how much time they invest into each case they are concentrating on. Finally, you will want to meet up with a minimum of the final three lawyers which have the credentials you are looking for. This will provide you with some time to really evaluate how interested they are in representing your case. It is important to follow most of these steps to actually find someone that has the right measure of experience to help you get the best possible outcome.

I Bought A House About A Month Ago And The Previous Owners Left Some Lawn And Garden Machinery There. The Neighbor Says That The Previous Owner Is Planning To Come Back To Get These Things.
My Question Is &Quot; Since These Things Were Not Mentioned Anywhere In The Contract And Were Left There After The Final Signing And Turning Over Of The House To Me, Does He Have Any Right To Come Get These Things Or Are They Now Legally Mine?&Quot; What Are My Rights Concerning These Things
They're yours now. Any property the owner expected to take should have been taken before you bought the house or the purchase agreement should have listed the property as property he was going to take. It should have been gone when you moved into your home. It's abandoned property now. He has no rights to it. If the property is not of great value and he sues you, I'd give it back. In other words--think with your pocketbook on minor matters. If it's not worth the atty fees to keep it, be practical.
I Want To Be A Civil Ligation Lawyer. What Major(S) And Minor(S) Should I Consider?
I Was Thinking Maybe Political Science, Communication, Business, Or Economics. Any Other Ideas? There'S Also A Minor Called Peace And Conflict Studies, Does That Sound Good?
Civil litigation is a very broad generic area of law. There are many areas of focus within civil litigation, the most common ones being family law (divorce and child custody), personal injury and insurance defense. None of them pay particularly well but what you study in college is largely irrelevant and how well you perform academically in college is infinitely more important as your career opportunities as a lawyer are going to be dictated largely if not exclusively by the reputation of the law school from which you graduate, and the top ranked law schools are only concerned about the reputation of your college, your UGPA and your LSAT score.
Focus on what you what you believe you can excel at in college. If it is an area in which you can pursue an alternate career path other than law school, all the better so you can broaden your career options in general after graduating from college.
You should be aware that the employment market for new lawyers is extremely competitive and the salary distribution curve for those actually able to secure employment is bimodal with only about 10% or less of all law school graduates breaking the six figure barrier and the largest group of law school graduates securing full time jobs that pay $40-$60k. That's not the greatest return on an investment of $140k in tuition, plus another $60k in living expenses so you should make sure you are passionate about the practice of law before enrolling in law school.
Attorney With Felonies?
I Got Accepted For Ut Law School For Next Year. Problem S That Now I Am Facing A 2Nd Degree Felony Charges For Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon. More Than Likely The Case Will Be Thrown Out Of Court But In Case It Does Not. Is There A Restriction Against Taking The Bar Exam If A Convicted Felon?
It depends on the state you want to practice in, but I would be very surprised if a state allowed a convicted felon to sit for the bar - and to be a newly convicted felon (rather than someone who was convicted many years ago) it would be unheard of. Additionally, being ARRESTED for the felony could be enough to prevent you from being permitted to sit for the bar exam. You can check with the bar association to get more specific information.
I Need Advice For Child Custody Mediation!?
My Soon To Be Exwife And Myself Are Going To Child Custody Mediation Tomorrow And I'M Not Sure What To Expect. And, It Turns Out, Our Daughter'S Guardian Ad Litem Is The Mediator. Which I Believe He Is Already Siding With My Ex. She Is A Very Good Actress And Very Munipulative, So I Understand Why.
Anyway, She'S Been Sending Me Lies On Text Messages Saying I Turned Down Visits With My Daughter Among Other Things. All Of Which I Know Shes Only Doing To Show Him And Try To Make Me Look Bad. We Are Both Fighting For Full Custody, But I Would Consider Settling For Joint.
Any Help Or Advice Would Be Great! I Have No Idea What To Expect!
First of rather that mediator is her friend or not doesnt matter. The mediator only job is to help you agree on an arrangement, if you dont you go in front of the judge and they decide whats best for your child.
If she is a good mother (and i know that can be hard to admit when you no longer like your ex) then opt for 50/50 down the middle.
Ask for joint legal custody,(unless u feel she is honestly incapable of making such choices) that means you both must agree on things like dentist, doctors, schools and other major decisions with the exception of an emergency.
As far as physical custody i suggest you offer something down the middle, it makes it look like your thinking of your daughters best interest, which is what you should be doing either way.
such ideas like one week with you, one with mother..
or Mon-wed with one parent, wed-fri with the other and split the weekends
Or Mon-Thur with one Thur- sun with other
another option is weekdays with one and weekend with the the other.. and switching during the summer. Thats not as equal but still resonable.
I hope this helps you, and no matter what remember its not about your ex and her ways but only that your daughter needs to have time with you and her as well.
Michigan Divorce/Child Custody Q?
My Parents Recently Divorced And Am Currently Switching Back And Forth Between Houses. My Question Is, Can I Choose Which Parent To Live With Even If Their Lawyers Set Up This Living Arrangement? If So Do I Have To Wait Untill I Am 18 To Decided Who To Live With Or Can I Decide Now?
If you are over the age of 13 then YOU have a major input into where you want to live. Which ever parent you choose you need to go to them and tell them to file for primary custody of you, because you want to live there. As long as both parents are stable then your input should be counted greatly! It is the Judge who decides the custody of the kids, not the lawyers.
Once you are 18 you can live anywhere you want. Just keep in mind that if you switch custody to one parent the other one might have to pay child support. If it is at all possible maybe you can talk to the parent you are choosing not to live with and tell them listen, I have thought about this really hard and I want to live with Parent X, it isn't anything that you have done, I would just feel better living there, do you think you can talk with them and come to an agreement about it without having to go back to court, or is that our only option?
In Need Of Legal Advice. Payroll Deposit After Termination?
After Being Wrongly Terminated My Former Employer Made A Payroll Direct Deposit Into My Account. They Are Requesting That I Repay The $200. If I Do Not Repay It, What Action Can They Take. Can They Report This To The Credit Bureau If I Do Not Repay It?
hr4me has the wrong answer!
If they overpaid you then they can reverse the process -- its the same as making a "stop payment" for a regular banking customer -- but the fee for a company is about $100.00 -- then simply, your bank will deduct your account and credit back the overpayment to your company, no charge to you.
Legally, if you can claim the deposit into your account was for 'earned wages' then your company can't reverse the process -- all you have to do is make the claim, it doesn't matter if your right or wrong, the mistake was made by the company.
They can't report it to the credit bureau because you were an employee NOT a borrower -- if they do, the new banking and consumer protection laws provide legal remedies to you at no charge.
If you keep the money, it will cost them 3 times that amount to recover it from you, again at no charge to you.
