Do You Know About Cheap Nyc Divorce Lawyer?
Risk of Hiring a Cheap Divorce Lawyer
Resist the temptation to hire a cheap divorce lawyer based simply on the fact that he charges less than his competitors. Many charge extremely low fees because they take on very large caseloads. This might mean that their clients do not get the time or attention they deserve because the firm is overwhelmed and understaffed. Always check with the agency that regulates attorney discipline in your state to ensure that your lawyer is a member in good standing. There, you can also find out if he has previously been publicly reprimanded for ethical and/or professional violations.

Any Suggestions For Finding An Entry-Level Attorney Position?
I Graduated Last Spring, Took And Passed The Maryland Bar, And Am Currently Clerking For A Judge. I Have Excellent Academics, But No Law Firm Or Journal Experience. I Do Have Several Years Of Non-Legal Work Experience.
I'Ve Been Sending Out A Few Cold Call Cover Letter/Resume Packets A Day, Plus Responding To Ads Calling For Less Than 2 Years Experience In The Local Papers, Bar Assoc Website, And Even Craigslist.
I Still Can'T Seem To Get Anywhere Though. Any Suggestions? Thanks For You Time And Thoughts!
It is important to network.
What you should do:
1) Join your local County Bar Association (many times, the first year is free or at an extremely reduced rate). Attend all the meetings and, if possible, join the Barristers (a group for attorneys younger than 35 or with less than 10 years of experience). Barristers may be included in your membership fee. Also, if possible, join your local chapter of Inns of the Court (there, you will meet more experienced attorneys who may know of openings);
2) Sign up with a Temp Agency who specializes in legal staffing positions (it's contract work, but it is a "foot in the door");
3) Sign up with a headhunter (you don't pay; the potential employer would pay if you were hired by the employer). The headhunter will help spruce up your resume to make it look good to potential employers;
4) Did you clerk at any law firms while you were in law school? Are you remembered fondly? If so, contact them to see if they have any openings. If they don't, they may be willing to create a position for you. Hopefully you got along well with everyone. If not, can the judge you currently work for hire you on as a staff attorney/research attorney? Also, you may want to try applying for other clerkships (paid, of course) now that you have experience clerking for a judge.
5) Don't have high expectations about the salary. It's a MYTH that you can earn the six-figures just coming out of law school, especially if you didn't go to a Tier 1 law school and graduate in the top 1-2% of your class.
6) Can you get waived into practice in the District of Columbia? That way, you expand your areas of where you can practice law and perhaps there may be positions available in the DC area.
7) Try a small firm - yes, you won't earn as much as a large firm, but you won't be stuck in the basement doing "law and motion." You can actually get more experience working at a smaller firm;
8) Try both plaintiff's and defense firms. You may want to do one side of the law, but if there is an opening at the other side (and they want you), take it. You'll gain valuable experience and, after a few years, can make a lateral transfer to another position in a different firm;
9) See if you can sign up with a firm that handles only special appearances. There are lots of them (at least in CA) and you can start out that way, by making appearances at court;
10) Last, but definitely not least, see if anyone will hire you as a paralegal. I know it's a step down, but at least you'll have a foot in the door when they want to expand. And, that way, you won't have the billable hour requirement that most attorneys have and make sure you don't get sent to court (unless they want to pay you more $$).
Legal Advice/Consultation Needed!?
I Need Help Asap. Here'S The Deal.
My Boyfriend Has A Dominican Republic Birth Certificate. His Parents Were Married And Are Both U.S. Citizens So That Makes Him A U.S. Citizen
He Has Been Here His Whole Life And Even Went To School Here. He Even Has A Social Security Card! But No Form Of Id With Picture On It. He Has All The Paper Work In The World Yet They Are Giving Him The Hardest Time In The World Obtaining An Id! I Need Help :(
Who Do I Talk To? Where Do I Go? We Have Been At This For Too Long (Years)! I'M Willing To Pay Money But I Only Have So Much. But Any Advice Is Helpful Thank You!
Were his parents citizens when he was born? If so, they should have filed a consular report of birth abroad. This should be sufficient (along with birth certificate and other basic documents) to get a passport.
If his parents naturalized while he was a child he should have a certificate of citizenship or a naturalization certificate. Either of these will work in combination with other basic documents. There are other things he could use if he doesn't have those, but it may be easier/cheaper just to get one of those and apply for a passport.
Once he has a passport everything else should be pretty straightforward. However, I wonder if he's been completely honest with you about his immigration status because it seems odd that this has never come up before. A social security card and/or attending school in the US is not proof of legal status. You say he has all the paperwork in the world - well, what paperwork is it?
You can speak with an immigration attorney if you need help requesting all the documents, etc. but this is really something you can do yourself if he's been honest with you.
Civil Rights Vs. Constitutional Law?
I Am Looking Into Going Into Law. I Am Really Interested In Civil Rights But My Husband Says I Might Want To Consider Constitutional Law What Are The Differences, Advantages, And Disadvantages?
disreguard the previous answer. Constitutional law is much more important than civil rights law. Constitutional law covers everyone, not just a select few minorities. There is nothing in the Constitution that covers Civil Rights. Civil Rights Laws are just that laws that Congress passed.
Does Walmart Have Legal Rights To Search Shoplifters?
I, Am In The Wrong In The First Place For Shoplifting. Me And My Friend Were Caught Before We Exited The First Door With Eleven Dvds In Our Pockets(Just The Discs). My Friends Gave Me The Dvds, I Put Them In My Coat, Went To A Family Bathroom And Took Thme Out Of Their Cases. Then I Left The Cases Behind Random Items, And Put The Disc In Our Pockets. My Other Friend Who Was Purchasing An Item And Would Walk Out Separately Was Also Accused Of Being An Accomplice Even Though He Didn'T Take Any Of The Dvds Out Of Their Cases Nor Did He Have Any On Him. Me And My Friend Who Were Caught Are 16, And My Friend Who Was An Accomplice Was 15. I'M Not Hear To Try And Strike At Wal Mart, I Just Want To Know The Policy For Asset Protection. What Are They Allowed To Do In Terms Of Detaining Me. When The Asset Protection Officer First Got Me, He Pushed Me Up Against A Wall. Then When We Got In The Office, He Ripped My Coat Off And Searched Me. I Don'T Know Much About That Stuff, And I Asked Him If He Had Legal Rights To Search Me And He Just Gave Me A Cocky &Quot;Wal-Mart Cop&Quot; Attitude. He Told Me Can Do Whatever He Wants To Me. He Took My Cell Phone And I Asked If I Can Call My Parents. They Denied Me And Said They Were Going To Call Them For Me. I Told Them I Would Like To Speak With My Parents First And They Just Laughed At Me. They Began Asking Me Questions And I Didn'T Want To Answer Them And They Yelled At Me For Not Answering Them. I Was Going To Wait Until The Police Got There. The Officer Read Me My Miranda Rights Obviously. But What I Don'T Get Is How I Hvae Control Over My Right To Attorney, Right To Remain Silent Etc. But I Don'T Have These Rights Talking To The Asset Protection From Wal Mart. Of Course They Told The Cop I Was Being Uncooperative Because I Didn'T Want To Answer Their Questions, And I Asked Them If They Were Allowed To Search Me. I Don'T Know Their Policy, Like I Said, And I Would Just Like To Be Informed. I Don'T Think The Asset Protection Guy Handled It Correctly, Pushing Me Up Against A Wall, Ripping My Coat Off And Searching Me, Taking My Cell Phone, Denying Me The Right To Talk To My Parents, And Forcing Me To Talk To Them. It May Be Their Store I Was Stealing From, But They Are Not Police Officers Or Any Government Officials. So Why Would They Have The Rights To Search Me Or Touch Me?
You are right, and you were in the wrong. The asset protections officer was in the wrong as well; but two wrongs don’t make a right.
As long as you are on Wal Mart property they have a right to search you; you consent to that when you enter the store Theft is theft, and you removal of the DVDs from their container and hiding them shows intent to steal so they were correct in detaining you.
However, after that point things fell apart. The officer is required by law to read you your rights prior to doing anything else after detaining you. The officer can yell at you, he can conduct a search, but he cannot question you until after reading you your rights. The point of arrest is not when the police officers showed up, but when the asset protections officer first detained you.
He is also guilty of abuse of authority if he hurt you, but proving that is going to be hard. Since you have a witness that can say when your rights were read to you (your accomplice) you can fight the case based on that alone. His questioning of you was illegal, his search was illegal and his conduct was illegal.
I actually advised a person who shoplifted an item and was caught on camera of this kind of thing before and he got off because he was able to show that the arrest was illegal; just as it was in your case. Each situation is unique so I don’t know if you CAN get off, and you were wrong, but you can fight the case and prevent yourself from getting a criminal record. Wal Mart has the right to ban you from the store though and they got back the DVDs that they own so they got what they wanted. If you fight the case then Wal Mart is likely to drop it, it is too expensive for them to hire a lawyer and pursue it. Even if they have lawyers on staff Wal Mart has made it known that they don’t want to pursue shoplifting cases except against repeat offenders. You might get off if you make enough noise. The case rotates on what you said to the police officer AFTER he read you your rights.
The asset protection officer was for all intents and purposes the officer who arrested you and his conduct after that arrest is what matters. He legally searched you since he had reason to suspect that you had shoplifted, and he was proven correct. The WAY he did it though was illegal and without reading you your rights prior to that search he illegally arrested you.
