Sex Crimes Defense Attorney?
What Is The Average Salary For A Sex Crimes Defense Attorney? One Day I Hope To Be A Partner For A Large Firm.. I'M Currently Attending University For A Ba In Psychology W/ A Minor In Political Science. I Actually Want To Be A Neuropsychologist.. Specializing In Sex, Sexual Deviance And Sex Therapy.. But I Would Also Like To Be Able To Defend Those Accused Of Criminal Sexual Acts. I Guess I Want Two Professions! Any Advice For Me?
A criminal defense attorney who is good and brings in clients, if working for a large well known firm makes over $300,000 a year. Getting to that point can mean many years of work.
Charged sex offenders do not tend to hire private attorneys. Without bringing in paying clients your firm is not going to allow pro bono work, especially for sex cases which makes for poor PR.
To really work sex offender defense you have to become a public defender. They make about the same as prosecutors. In my county about the same a police detective.
Your Legal Aid Lawyer Wants You To Plead Guilty To Aggravated Assault When It Was Truly Self Defense?
You Can Get Up To Ten Years In Prison If Found Guilty If This Goes To Trial -Otherwise You Get A Chance For 6 Months House Arrest, ('Can Leave The House For Work And With Your Kids Except For Night Time) Probation, Community Service, Anger Management Classes, Sensitivity Classes And The Risk Of Deportation Back To A Violent Poor Third World Country. You Have Never Done Anything Wrong Before This In Your Life-'Never Even Got A Traffic Ticket And Even Used To Work In Law Enforcement.
Would You Take The Risk And Go To Trial And Risk Getting Ten Years In Prison And Being Separated From Your Young Kids And Mentally Handicapped Child? Or Accept A Criminal Record And Risk Of Deportation With Your Kids And A Bleak Future? You Really Do Not Think You Are Guilty Of A Crime But The Other Person Was Badly Injured And Your Injuries Were Minor In Comparison. Please Do Not Judge Or Be Nasty-Just Advise Me What You Would Do If This Happened To You -Ty.
Sorry, but there is not really enough information here to make that call.
Lawyers advise their clients to take one action or another based on what the evidence may prove or not prove. If the lawyer believes that the state's case is strong, based on the number of witnesses, the credibility of the witnesses, the forensic evidence and other evidence, the lawyer may advise the client to plead guilty in order to receive a lighter sentence.
That sounds like what has happened here.
But the decision belongs to the client and if the client disagrees with the lawyer and believes that he/she can convince the jury of his/her innocence or self-defense claim, then the client may decide to go to trial. If the client does this, he/she should hire the best lawyer available that agrees with the decision to defend the case.
The only "evidence" you talk about in your question, is the fact that the other guy was hurt worse than the defendant. This will not look good to the judge or jury, as you are only allowed to use the force necessary to defend yourself, not more.
If the other evidence is also stacked up against the defendant, he/she should probably take the lawyer's advice.
Fear Of Lawsuits?
So... Basically For The Past 5 Years Or So I Have Had A Huge Fear Of Lawsuits. It Has Gotten Drastically Better In The Past Year... But It'S Still There Sometimes.
I Think It Stems From A Bad Experience Where Someone Threatened To Sue Me.
I'M Just Curious, Has Anyone Ever Suffered From This? How Did You Deal/Cope? Any Stories?
You are afraid of lawsuits well welcome to the club!
I fear these and I fear even sending my kids to school, sad but true. Our school calls cops over everything, even kicking kids out of school, or in school suspension for everything (are schools here are the lowest rated in are state, sad but also true).
It started when my youngest child was born (maybe I had it before hand?).
This child was born as I was with a seizure disorder, doctors said he was holding his breath for attention, he was a new born!!
He had a seizure while at the babysitters, rushed to the hospital. There CPS got involved. They found I did not make my child have a seizure but was still in the "system" for 2 years! I took all my children in to the doctors for everything! Afraid the government was going to take my children.
Mean while my oldest who has health problems was still having them. The courts put him in jail/mental hospitals for three long years, not listening to me when telling them this child has problems. This child has a huge grudge against me because he feels I did not do enough for him. Right before going in A teacher at the school assumed this kid was being abused at home (reasonings for his "problems") so back into the system I went.....not listening to me or doctors reports!
Law suites yes afraid of them, afraid of the power the government holds over little peeons like us. A person is guilty no matter what before found innocent. If a person would sue over anything, everything one works for is gone from court fee's, time loss (try working when dealing with courts,attorneys, medical bills, life on and on), some people have lost cars,homes, kids over silly lawsuits.
Anyone with common sense should be worried about law suits or how long the governments hands/powers are. Who cares if they are false accusations or who started the ball rolling .
Lawsuits are worth being afraid over.....

What Legal Documents Will I Need To Start An Online Clothing Store?
I Set Up My Own Online Clothing/Jewerly Store. But I Dont Want To Publish It Until It Is Legalized And I Had A Few Questions:
-What Legal Documents/Permits/Licenses Do I Need?
-How Old Are You Required To Be To Run An Online Business?
-How Do You Find The Right Ssr?
AS PER THE SITE http://www.youngentrepreneur.com/forum/f...
"While it's hard to give a complete answer without knowing more details about your overall business plan for the clothing store, here are a few thoughts:
The general package of documents you would need for that might include the following:
Incorporation documents - Articles and Bylaws, as well as Shareholder Agreements and instruments setting up voting trusts/irrevocable proxies/etc in the event of multiple owners taking shares.
Generally, city and state business licenses, as well as a Federal EIN.
If you will have employees, you will need employment contract(s), which may need various provisions including nondisclosure.
Depending on the types of clothing sold, certain intellectual property due diligence may need to be performed and documented for (including acquisition of associated IP licenses).
Lastly but not least, you will need uniform commercial code article 2 (sales) contractual instruments to be designed specifically for your business's needs; you would then be able to copy and fill in the blanks of such a contract to suit each order and have a solid sales agreement in place in case anything goes wrong in a given sale.
I would strongly advise against using legalzoom for the formation and/or conducting of any real business, as they only provide the most basic forms and they are very generic in nature and not specific to any one business... This creates ambiguities now, which can cost much more later."
Divorce Amd Custody Hearing.?
I Have An Attorney, So I Filed For Divorce And Full Custody, I Was Also Granted Temporary Custody. Wife Has Been Served And We Are Currently Waiting On A Light Hearing For Custody.The Reason I Asked For Temp.. Custody Was, We Had Arrangements In Sharing Our Son But I Didnt Know Her Living Conditions, Or Where She Was Leaving Our Son While At Work. I Found Her Drug Peraphanelia In Our House Shortly After She Left. And She Threatened To Keep Our Son From Me Once. And Knowing What May Have Been Her Reaction To Getting Served I Was Afraid She May Have Kept Our Son From Me. Can That Full Custody Request Back Fire On Me? What Can I Expect From This Light Hearing On Custody?
In order to get the temporary custody order your lawyer had to file what they call an ex parte application. Once you served your wife with the papers, she has a right to a hearing on the matter.
The real issue is going to be whether you lied to get temporary full custody. If you didn't then I think the temporary orders stay in place with some restrictions on your wife's parenting time and visitation schedules.
This is all something you need to talk to your lawyer about. We all don't know the procedures your court uses, and we certainly do not know all the details; and its a good chance not one of us in Yahoo Land reading this is licensed to give you advice where your hearing is taking place; and even if we were, it would be unethical because you already have a lawyer.
