Should I Take Commercial Law Or Securities Regulation?
1. It will all depends on your requirements.
2. Commercial Law* is a very wide subject, while Securities Regulation** covers only one area.
-Commercial law, also known as business law, is the body of law that applies to the rights, relations, and conduct of persons and businesses engaged in commerce, merchandising, trade, and sales.
-Commercial law includes within its compass such titles as principal and agent; carriage by land and sea; merchant shipping; guarantee; marine, fire, life, and accident insurance; bills of exchange and partnership. It can also be understood to regulate corporate contracts, hiring practices, and the manufacture and sales of consumer goods. Many countries have adopted civil codes that contain comprehensive statements of their commercial law.
-For details, please read:
-Securities regulation in the United States is the field of U.S. law that covers various aspects of transactions and other dealings with securities. The term is usually understood to include both federal- and state-level regulation by purely governmental regulatory agencies, but sometimes may also encompass listing requirements of exchanges like the New York Stock Exchange and rules of self-regulatory organizations like the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). On the Federal level, the primary securities regulator is the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). However, Futures and some aspects of derivatives are regulated by the Federal Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC).

What Does A Paralegal Do Every Day....What Are His/Her Main Responsibilities?
I'M A Bit Curious.
My answer comes from my experience as a commercial construction litigation paralegal. I point this out because every paralegal has vastly different responsibilities. Some of us do litigation, some don't. Some have massive client responsibilities, some don't. No two paralegals are alike. It is dependent on how many attorneys you work for, whether you work for the government, whether you for a small firm or large firm. Many, many variables.
With that said, this is what I do in the construction litigation realm: I handle basic office functions. We do have a secretary, so I do not answer phones. I maintain the legal filings, archiving of files, print, fax, email, copy, bind. That pretty much sums up my "secretarial" duties. My substantive legal duties include: drafting Motions, drafting Discovery responses and requests, drafting Requests for Equitable Adjustment, keeping contact with all district clerks, county clerks, clerk personnel, appellate clerks and appellate personnel, ensuring the client is kept current with their case, keeping current with local rules of all counties we have current litigation in, reading and responding to all emails, maintaining a three attorney calendar, ensuring attorneys do not miss deadlines, proofreading, drafting, arranging for service of documents via sheriff/constable/private server, keep track of certified mail, arranging mediations, arranging depositions, maintain relationships with local court reporters, attend continuing legal education, make sure the attorneys are attending their continuing legal education, make travel plans for travelling attorney, ensure files are ready for the attorney if there is a hearing, deposition or trial, scheduling trials, drafting scheduling orders, scheduling hearings...I am sure I am forgetting a thousand things, but I think that covers about 75% of what I do in a day.
Questions About Assistant District Attorney, To Law Firm.....?
I Am Thinking About Becoming A Lawyer. I Have A Question, However.
Would An Assistant District Attorney Who Switched To A Private Practice (A Prestigious Firm) Have A Better Chance Of Making Partner Compared To The Lawyers Who Went To The Firm Straight Out Of Law School?
Of course it's hard to say without knowing the "prestigious firm", but generally yes. At a large firm, new attorneys seldom go to court for 3-5 years. If you've been an ADA, you will have been to Court more frequently than any of the other associates. If there's an emergency and someone needs to fill in--they'll look to you first. You'll also know the judges better and, if the firm does criminal defense, no one is as skilled as an ex-prosecutor.
Is This Legal Or Can I Do Something About This?
I Live In Oklahoma And I'M Recently Separated From My Abusive Husband. I Have Custody Of Our 4 Minor Children. I'Ve Struggled With Addiction For A Few Years Due To Self Medicating But Have Been Clean A Little Over A Year. My Mom Has Called Cps Accusing Me Of Still Using, Neglect, And Within 20 Minutes With My Kids And Myself He Determined The Allegations False. The Problem Is Yesterday 3 Cops Showed Up Saying I Told My Therapist I Had My Kids With Me And Was Going To Kill Myself. This Therapist Is My Mother'S Not Mine, I Don'T Have One, And I Only Met Her Once With My Mom 3 Or 4 Months Ago. I Am Out Of The Abuse And Am In No Way Suicidal And My Mother Knows That For A Fact. My Cps Caseworker Is Required To Come See Me Again And While He Knows That The Allegations Are False And I Have Nothing To Hide It Terrified My Kids And They Are Hurt Almost As Much As Me. How Can She Just Blatantly Lie About That Having 3 Cops Come, I Live In A Very Small Town. Can We Take Some Kind Of Legal Action Against Her For Knowingly Giving False Information That Wasted 3 Officer'S Time And Scaring My Already Traumatized Children? It'S Morally Wrong Without A Doubt, But Is It Illegal To Do That To Me Just To Try And Take My Kids? I Think The Therapist Needs Consequences As Well Since I Am Not Her Patient. I Know They Are Legally Required To Report If Their Patient Is A Danger To Others Or Themselves. So Shouldn'T She Have Examined Me Before Deciding On What I May Or May Not Do? I'M Disgusted With Her Actions And Can'T Understand Why She Did This Especially Since She'S Always Been A Sorry Excuse For A Mother. It'S Sad But The Kids And I Are Done With Them For Good And I Want Them To Have A Consequence For Their Horrible Behavior. What, If Anything Can We Do
Your best bet is going to be to contact a lawyer, or at least your local legal aid services. You can start here: http://www.legalaidok.org/ You have a lot going on here and you're going to need the help of legal professionals to get it resolved.
Most likely it's going to become an established fact that your mother is a liar and is out to get you, and the authorities will note this and stop going on her testimony to investigate you. Of course, she's already caused you a lot of trouble that is still ongoing, and I know that's frustrating. You can seek a restraining order against her. Having that document can make the authorities think twice about coming after you. The fact that she's not allowed anywhere near you or your children can make it awfully hard to believe her lies about you.
You also definitely need to pursue this therapist. Find out what certifications she has and go to the board that awards the certification. Tell them what she has done and file a complaint. She should lose her professional credentials for acting unethically, which she has clearly done in this case.
You've already lived through hard times, but you have come through. Obviously your mom is somewhat responsible for how tough your life has been. You're not out of the woods yet, but you are a very strong person. Just know that you're moving in the right direction with your life and your kids, and you can do this. I know you're worried about your kids and the effect this has had on them, but a few visits from CPS are nothing compared to growing up with an abusive father. Kids are incredibly resilient, and the memories that are going to mean the most are having a loving mom who would do anything for them, and the good times you've all had together.
Edit: Nikki, I believe that you are a good mom, and it's good that CPS isn't harassing you because it wouldn't be unusual. But they don't have as much interest in protecting you and giving you top quality advice as your own attorney would. They seem nice and helpful when they're on your side, but there is no guarantee they'll stay that way, so just don't let your guard down or trust them too much.
I'm sure money is probably getting tight, but please don't delay getting a lawyer. He/she can get you an order of protection from your husband, an order of occupancy (if you owned a home together and wish to live there with your children during the divorce proceedings), temporary orders of custody and child support, and can file the legal separation paperwork so that you can establish a point of separation of your living arrangements and financial accounts. The divorce and permanent custody/support orders will take quite some time, but all that other stuff can be done in a matter of days or a couple of weeks.
Personal Injury Award -Spouses Share?
I Had A Personal Injury Case Where My Wife And I Were The Named Plaintiffs. I Suffered The Injury. I Had Little Loss Of Wages Or Medical Expenses. The Award Is $50,000. What Amount By Law Is My Wife Entitled To.
Until you divorce, that is a matter for negotiation. Courts do not generally get involved in how married people spend their money.
New York State Security Deposite Laws?
Can A Landlord Ask For A Secuirty Deposit If The Apartment Is In Bad Condition When You Move In, The Lady Whom Previously Lived Here Had Left This Place Looking Horrible, Tampons On The Wall, Bras In The Closets And Leaks In The Ceiling. Me And My Fiance Had To Clean It All Up. She Never Cleaned Anything (The Landlord)
So Is There A Law Stating Anything About This....If So Please Give Me The Link
I hope you took pictures!!! You will need them. You shouldn't have had to clean up the mess of a previous tenant; that is what their security deposit is supposed to cover.
Requirement of a security deposit goes by your lease; If you signed a lease without any deposit requirements in it then No, you don't have to pay it. They can't change an executed contract (lease agreement) without writting an addendum to that contract
However, if you didn't sign a lease and are living with a friend/family etc. you may want to get one written up and include in it what the requirements are for it being refunded to you upon vacating the premises.
Also, if there are leaks in the closet (maybe from upstairs) the landlord is responsible for fixing any leaks etc. Remember TAKE PICTURES BEFORE AND AFTER if you have to go to court over it, that is your proof and the burden is generally on the Landlord to prove that the residence was in better condition when you moved in than when you moved out.
