Can You Be A Prosecuting And Defense Attorney?
Not In The Same Case, Of Course! Lol (Although That Would Be Interesting)
I'Ve Been Watching A Lot Of Pheonix Wright (Not Playing, Because I'M Poor) Games Lately, And I'Ve Just Been Wondering If You Could Have Both Jobs. Ie. Sometimes You Defend And Other Times You Prosecute.
Sorry If This Is A Weird Question, This Is What I Think About.
It would be impossible to be both a prosecutor and defense attorney in the same jurisdiction at the same time. Ethical obligations would not allow it. As a prosecutor you would be privy to information that a defense attorney would not normally be privy to, and vice versa.
Generally, being a prosecutor is a full time job that would not allow you to be a defense attorney as well. However, there are part-time prosecutor positions that afford attorney's the opportunity to do private work on the side. Most often, those part time prosecutors practice civil law as well (ex. wills, estates, elder law, etc.).
It is conceivable that one could be a part time prosecutor in one jurisdiction and do some criminal defense work in another jurisdiction. I guess one could work part time as a US attorney, prosecuting federal crimes and still do some private criminal defense at the local level, for example.
Ok, I Was Arrested On October 3Rd For Domectic Violence And Possesion Of Analogues, The Analogue Was Xanax, Which Was Given To Me By My Mother For A Panic Attack, But The Police Took Me In For That, Which Is Understandable Due To It Not Being My Prescription, Because Mine Ran Out And Wasn't Filled Yet, But The Domesti Violence Was For Me Pushing My Father A Month Before, The Officers Asked If I Ever Done Anything And My Father Just Said He Pushed Me, And Said It Was A Month Prior, But They Still Arrested Me For It, Is It Legal To Do So? Or What? I'm Now On Probation For A Year, Pleaded No Contest For The Possession, Which Was Dropped To Attempted Possesion And Plead Guilty To The Domestic, Hich Will Now Remain On My Record, Any Help To Resolve This And Possibly Have It Removed Would Be Greatful.
Well, it is a little too late to figure out what you can do now as you've already plead and you're on probation. They can arrest for a push or a shove a month prior, but it's not typical unless your dad wanted to press charges. (At least that's what I've experienced here in CA-- there needs to be visible proof something happened like bruises or scratches.) You should talk to a lawyer about the possibility of getting your record sealed or expunged; if you don't currently have one, you can try the Legal Aid Society. Word to the wise-- law enforcement prosecutes elder abuse just as fiercely as child abuse in some areas, and it doesn't have to be physical violence (financial abuse counts as well) so you may want to either improve your relationship with your dad or stay away for a bit.
Is There A Difference Between A An Attorney And A Lawyer?
My English Teacher Told Me That An Attorney And A Lawyer Are 2 Different Things....Is This True?
Are lawyer and attorney synonyms? Essentially yes. Around our office we have many other synonyms for lawyer as well, most of them muttered between clenched teeth. But I digress. According to several dictionaries, a lawyer is somebody who can give legal advice and has been trained in the law. An attorney is somebody legally empowered to represent another person, or act on their behalf.
So if you give somebody "power of attorney," that doesn't mean they suddenly become the comic book hero, "Super Litigator," it means they can legally sign papers and make decisions for you in the area in which you've given them that power. In many, perhaps most, cases, lawyers are given power of attorney--but it doesn't have to be that way.
In everyday usage, the terms are virtually synonymous. Indeed, a quick poll of lawyers at my office found none who really thought there was any difference. But if we stick to our dictionary guns, there is a definite distinction.
As a side note, the British have several additional terms for people who practice law. "Lawyer" is a general term describing all of them. "Solicitors" do most of the office work, draft documents, talk to clients, etc., and may only appear as advocates in the lower courts. "Barristers" do most of the trial work, especially in the higher courts, where they are the only ones who may act as advocates. "Attorney" has pretty much the same meaning in Britain as in America--one who acts on behalf of another.
Why use yellow pads? Because they are allegedly (like the use of that lawyerly term?) easier on the eyes than white paper. And for people who have to write and read a lot, it makes sense to use something that's easier on the eyes. Nowadays, though, yellow paper is becoming more difficult to find as many offices switch to white paper, which can be recycled more easily.
What about the long paper? Well, I was going to make the standard cracks about lawyers needing 30% more space than normal folks to say the same thing. But a quick check of Cecil's archives found that not only did he already answer this question (see http://www.straightdope.com/classics/ a3_016.html), but he dissed that joke as well. So never mind. Hmph.
Divorced Law In Belgium?
I Was In Vacation Last Year To Home Land (Morocco) Iam A Gc Holder In The Us...I Meet This Close Family Member That I Used To Like Now Currently Lives In Belgium. We Get Attracted To Each Other We Spend Tow Months Just Traveling Around The Country. Now That We Decide To Get Married In Morocco. We Got One Problem My Fiance Was Married Before With In Belgium Women Who Just Leaved Without Notice Now His Seeking Divorced. What Is The Law In Belgium ???Dose It Effect Me If We Get Married Back Home While He Works In His Divorced ??Just To Know I Am Planing To Get Him In Us After I Get My Us Citizen??
Divorced law in Belgium is less or more identical to other European an US laws. You can divorce in common agreement or via a court (which takes more time).
Check out why his women left him before taking im to the US ? This should avoid nasty surprises once maried !
A lot of mariages between Morocco man and Belgian wives break because of the cultural difference. This could overcome you also (he could be conservative, you are living in the free country of USA with a lot of rights for women, this is not always the good mixture for a relation.
Beware as long he isn't divorced, going to the US as your partner will be difficult.
What Kind Of Lawyers Deal With Sexual Assault, Sexual Abuse, And Battered Victims? I Want To Defense People?
Who Has Been In These Situations.
Sexual assault, sexual abuse, and battery are criminal offenses. People who commit these crimes are prosecuted by the state in which the crimes were committed. Prosecutors are the attorneys that represent the government, and whose job it is to prove they are guilty in court. They can be called country prosecutors, district attorneys, city prosecutors, etc.
Victims can also hire their own attorney to protect their rights, and also sue the offender in civil court. These are civil attorneys who handle cases such as this. Many practice different areas of law, but those who specialize would be the personal injury lawyers and litigators.
Would You Consider This Child Abuse?
My Boyfriends Son's Mother...Will Take Her Two Older Children To The Doctor, But Not His Son. We Took Him And He Has Severe Allergies And We Were Told That She Needed To Get Rid Of Her Cats. Her Reaction To This: What Will I Tell My Daughter? She Doesn't Want To Get Rid Of Her Cats....Also She Calls During The Week Saying She Can't Take It Anymore And We Need To Come Get His Son. We Have Watched Her Other Two Kids On The Weekends, Because She Wanted To Go Out Drinking. We Watch Her Other Two Kids A Lot. She Treats His Son Like He Isn't As Good As Her Other Two Kids...Example: She Was Going To Take Everyone Camping, But Insisted That We Pick Up His Son. Why Wasn't He Allowed To Go To? She Is Constantly Calling And Telling Him That He Is A Bad Father And All Kinds Of Crap. If He Doesn't Cohere To Her Every Whim...Then He Isn't Allowed To See His Son. Is This Considered Child Abuse Or Am I Just Irritated?
it's child abuse. She does not care about your boyfriend's son. She uses him for her convenience. When she wants to hurt your boyfriend, she tells him that he is not a good father and keeps his son from him. When she has no immediate lash out at the boyfriend, she takes it out on his son by treating him horribly.
You didn't say how hold the child is, but I would try to get him out of there. Fighting for custody is not any easy thing to do as a father, but for the welfare of his son, he needs to really talk to a lawyer and find out his options. When the child turns 16 he can make his own decision about where he wants to live (in most states), but I don't know if his psyche can wait that long.
