Charged W Felony Dui ,Il,Chicago Paid To Date Lawyer $3600 For 4 Court Appearnces. Have Video Evidence Hat I Was Parked In A Parking Spot Not Moving Sleeping In My Car They Said I Crasshed Into A Car In Front.

I Feel This Can Be Dismissed But My Lawyer Says His Puttin Together A Mittigation Letter On My Behalve To Plead Down To Misdemeanor Judge Asked Arresting Officer To Provide Evidence Against Me Officer Has Not Been Back To Court Since W His Evidence Feel Im Being Taken For A Ride.
The price seems awful cheap. The price around here is around $15,000 for an attorney that specializes only in DUI to take you all the way through jury trial.
You probably don't even need an attorney as you can tell the judge what you have said here by yourself at the hearing.
Keep in mind that even if you were sleeping (passed out) in the back seat you can still be charged with a full blown DUI. The prosecution only has to prove that you were in control of the car (in close proximity to the car with keys on you).
The officer's evidence is only his sworn testimony in the police report. He typically just has that delivered to the court. We have a courier go to and from court every business day.
Civil Litigation Lawyer Career Description? Would I Be A Good Fit?
I Was Previously Thinking About Becoming An English Professor, But I'M Not Sure If That Is For Me Anymore. As Much As I Love Reading And Writing, I Just Feel Like Being A Professor Will Make Me Feel &Quot;Trapped&Quot;. I Need To Do Things And Go Places, See Things And Make A Difference.
I Have Now Turned To Law Because, Well... I Like To Argue. I Need To Be Right, And I'M Good At Convincing People That I Am. I Like That Thought Of Thrill That Comes With Arguing My Case To Get Someone To See My Way, And I Think It Sounds Like A Pretty Interesting Job. Intellectually Stimulating. I Know That A Lot Of Court Rooms And Trials Are Glamourized On Tv And I'M Trying Not To Let That Cloud My Judgement.
I Also Know That Getting A Job Once I'M Out Of School Would Be Incredibly Difficult, Especially In The Us But I'M Planning On Coming Back To Canada Anyways. I Plan On Getting Into An Ivy League School - Ambitious, I Know, But I Know That I Can Do It (I'M Pulling +95% In 6 Of My 8 Grade 12 International Baccalaureate Courses. I'M A Smart Kid.) I'M Driven And I Know That If I Set My Mind To It I Can Get In.
In Any Case, From My Brief Description Of Myself, Do You Think I Would Be A Good Fit In Law? I Know That You Obviously Aren'T Going To Make The Decision That Defines The Rest Of My Life, But I'M Just Looking For Some Input. Thank You, All!
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law:
**myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task - handling details is a large part of working as a lawyer),
**myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom),
**myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (Actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise. Many people mistakenly think that being an attorney is about the ability to argue. Actually, a successful attorney is defined by his/her commitment to the PEACEFUL resolution of disputes. Lawyers are actually: mediators, advocates, negotiators, advisors, evaluators, and peaceful intermediaries between clients.),
**myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong),
**myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week. There are a FEW attorneys that earn a lot of money - but MOST attorneys just about make a living. Most attorneys do not make as much money as most people think. Also, remember: there are more attorneys than there are available jobs.).
And then, to top it off, attorneys have to keep their client's information confidential. (You cannot use "juicy" tidbits that you have become aware of as fodder for the gossip circles.)
Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<< School loans are "non-dischargeable debts" - which means you cannot just write them off in bankruptcies (except in EXTREMELY rare cases).
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)
What'S A District Attorney?
What Exactly Is The Job Of A District Attorney? Is That A Judge? Are They The One'S That Tell What The Criminals Get (Sentencing)?
They are public prosecutors.
Generally, there are district attorney's offices and criminal divisions of the state attorney's general offices at the state level. These offices are organized by county. The District Attorney for the county is usually an elected official. Depending upon the size of the District Attorney's office, it may have multiple units that focus upon different types of crimes, such as domestic violence or homicides. If you work with a smaller District Attorney's office, you may have the option of handling diverse caseloads.
One of the largest advantages of working for a District Attorney's office is that you can get immediate and meaningful trial experience. This is something that many attorneys who work in law firms must wait for years to get. As an Assistant District Attorney, you will generally start out doing smaller misdemeanor cases and then work your way up to more significant work. On the higher end, District Attorneys have a great deal of discretion in how cases are investigated and prosecuted. The entire process of working as a District Attorney can result in a tremendously fulfilling career for people who want meaningful trial and court experience.

Contracts lawyer (an entertainment lawyer is mostly a contracts lawyer unless your client is Lindsey)
Estate lawyer would only handle paperwork (not so much contracts).
Real Estate lawyer
Any lawyer who is not doing litigation is probably doing paperwork type stuff

Do Lawyers Work On Weekends?
I've been a lawyer for almost 29 years. I've probably worked at least a few hours on 90% of the weekends in that time. That doesn't mean I meet with clients on the weekends. That's rare, but I'll do it if the client doesn't have any other openings or we're pressed by a deadline or an upcoming trial. It also doesn't mean I come into the office. Thanks to laptops and the internet, I can get a great deal done at home on the weekend. I would estimate that I work in the office on the weekend about 30 weekends a year and that I meet with a client in the office on the weekend no more than 4-5 times a year.
