How Often Are A Criminal Defense Attorney'S Clients Guilty?
While This Question Might Be Difficult (Maybe Impossible) To Answer, I Was Curious As To A Vague Percentage? I'M Trying To Get A Feel For The Ethical Issues Of The Occupation.
In Other Words, Would You Think That A Crim. Defense Attorney'S Clients Are Predominately Guilty Of The Crimes They Are Accused Of? Is It Even Possible For A Lawyer To Only Defend Whom They Believe To Be Innocent?
The answer is, that it doesn't matter. If you're in it to defend only innocent clients you won't get very far. The job of a criminal defense attorney is to hold the State to it's burden of proof by providing the best defense possible for their client, regardless of guilt or innocence.
Imagine a system in which lawyers were ethically bound to defend only those they thought truly innocent. Anyone charged with a crime under such a system would face an enormous initial hurdle of convincing some attorney that they are worthy of representation, and many would face the justice system without representation and surely be convicted. The practical result of such a system would be that lawyers, collectively, would have a much greater impact on the determination of guilt or innocence, than judges or juries. Is that what we want?
I understand all the ethical arguments, and the mindless, bumper-sticker lawyer bashing that goes on. And in many cases there is some justification for it. The challenge is to propose a better alternative.
In Law Firm Speak What'S The Difference B/T A Associate ,Attorney, Partner?
I Was Looking On A Law Firms Website And They Have Some People Listed As Associate And Others As Attorney Or Partner
Associates and partners are attorneys.
An associate is the level one without any experience starts out with. After multiple years of practicing law and being able to "drum up" business, one progresses to the next level which is partner.
As one gets to the level of "partner," it depends on the firm as to what type of "partner" levels there are. At one firm I used to work at, there were 3 levels of partner - two were non-equity, which meant that these two levels of partnership didn't actually own a part of the firm and could potentially be classified as employees by the California Department of Industrial Relations / Labor / Workers' Compensation Board - and only one level of partner was an actual owner of the firm.

Any Medical Malpractice Attorneys Out There? What Do You Think About This?
A 19 Year Old Boy Goes To The Doctor With A Cough And Chest Congestion He'S Diagnosed With Bronchitis, Given Steroid Ihnaler And Antibiotic Prescriptions. 2 Days Later He Is Have Some Abdominal Pain, Vomiting And Diarreaha. He Is Then Given A Cat Scan And Diagnosed With A Swollen Bladder, It Was Putting Pressure On His Bowels And Intestines. He Is Given A Cathiter And Kept Overnight. He Is Admitted At Around 8:30 P.M At Around 10 P.M He Is Given A Morhine Drip For Pain He Has An Allergic Reaction So He Is Given 2 Doses Of Narcan His Heart Rate Goes To 200 Bpm He Is Given Another Grug To Slow His Heart It Slows To 45 Bpm At 4:07 A.M He Dies Of An Enlarged Heart. No Chest X-Rays Were Done Until After His Heart Rate Jumped So High, Only Then Did They See The Enlarged Heart. This Young Man Graduated From High School 2 Years Ago. And Played Football And Wrestling All 4 Years. He Did Start Smoking Cigarettes And Marijuana After High School. That Is It In A Nutshell, What Do You Think?
Medical Malpratice cases are dificult and expensive to prosecute; therefore one issue is potential damages. In some states, the potentional damages for a young peron, unemployed, who isnt the support for anyone, is quite low.
As to the liabilty issue one would have to look at the autopsy and evaluate the cause of death. Was the contition caused by the treatment ofr pre-existing? Did he have a secondary desease of problem that led to the admission? Did the doctors depart from good and accepted treatment? Yes one can find and expert willing to testify as to virtually anything but, givem the case, one would want a case of more clear liability, which cannot be evaluated with a complete review of the records.
In Nj, Isnt It My Right To Have Legal Representation In Municipal Court?
In Court For Disorderly Conduct, Asked For Pd But Was Denied By Judge Saying Because The Charge Was Minor. I Repeatededly Asked But Was Made To Pro Se The Trial That I Had No N Otification Or Knoweledge Was Happening. Doesnt Sound Or Seem Remotely Right Or By The Law.
You've confused your right to have legal representation, with a right to be provided free legal representation.
No court case has ever claimed they need to hire a lawyer for indigents who commit misdemeanors.
What Should I Major In If I Want To Become A Criminal And Assault Lawyer?
I Am Going To Start College Next Year And I Really Want To Go To Texas Tech But I Dont Know What I Should Major In
After you finish college, you will need to complete three years of law school. Law schools will accept students with majors in any subject. They do like applicants who have majored in philosophy or mathematics. Both subjects teach you to think logically and to read dense material.
