Can A Debt Consolidation Attorney Represent Me If They Are Not Licensed To Practice Law In My State?
I Am Trying To Get Myself Out Of Debt With Pay Day Loans. I Found A Law Office In Pa That Helps With This Specifically. The Problem Is That I Am In Tx And I Am Not Sure If They Legally Can Help Me. I Don'T Want To Push The Laws. Thanks In Advance For Any Answers!
The direct answer to you question is that an attorney can not practice law in a state that he or she is not licensed. The way they get around that is to refer you to another attorney that is practicing in your state.
Normally, however, you do not have to consult an attorney to apply for a debt consolidation loan. Usually the attorney will counsel you about filing for bankruptcy. If you need help with pay day loans you can ask for help from the attorney general of your state. Look in government listings of your phone book.
If you are looking for a debt consolidation loan or advice on debt consolidation, I have included some resources.
I Need The Facts On Texas Legal Aid?
I Would Like To Know How Does Legal Aid Work In Family Law Cases In Texas? Do They Have Certain Limitations To The Type Of Case They Accept, Or Do They Accept All Family Law Cases? If The Case Is Too Much Of A Fight, ( That Is Not A Simple, Open And Shut Case Matter) Do They Take The Case?
It depends on the organization. Each legal aid organization will have its own criteria for taking a case. There is no universal answer to your question.
That said, I should note that the complexity of a case is usually not a determining factor regarding whether legal aid will help you. More important is your income (i.e., whether you are considered in the poverty level under U.S. government standards).

How Does Being A Civil Rights Attorney Pay, Compared To Other Lawyer Professions?
Thanks For Your Help, I Hope I Don't Sound Too Naive.
There are many kinds of civil rights law and civil rights lawyers. Attorneys in this area may focus on First Amendment issues; discrimination based on race, gender, disability, etc. The ACLU is one example of a civil rights organization. There are many more, a large percentage of which are non-profits. Some civil rights lawyers work for government--e.g., the U.S. Department of Justice. Generally, civil rights lawyers salaries are going to be less than those of attorneys who work for corporate interests and other monied interests who are more often than not the ones being sued for civil rights violations.

So Im Just Worried That Legal Action Can Be Taken Here...What Could Happen? (If You Are A Lawyer Or No About The Law Or Have Been Threw This Any Info Is Appriciated) Thank You!!!
Under Texas law it is illegal to have sex with someone under 17 (like you stated there is an affirmative defense that there is no more than a 3 year age difference, he can not be a registered sex offender, of opposite sex, and the victim has to be 14 or older).
You know already that this affirmative defense will not work for him because he is is older than 3 years.
What this means is you can not have sex or sexual contact. Everything is spelled out in the penal code. Kissing and dating is not listed so they are legal.
This is what is illegal for y'all to do:
(this is the penal code wording, so it is pretty graphic)
(A) causes the penetration of the anus or sexual organ of a child by any means;
(B) causes the penetration of the mouth of a child by the sexual organ of the actor;
(C) causes the sexual organ of a child to contact or penetrate the mouth, anus, or sexual organ of another person, including the actor;
(D) causes the anus of a child to contact the mouth, anus, or sexual organ of another person, including the actor; or
(E) causes the mouth of a child to contact the anus or sexual organ of another person, including the actor.
This is the sex part, now what is sexual contact (for indecency with a child):
1 exposes the person's anus or any part of the person's genitals, knowing the child is present; or
2 causes the child to expose the child's anus or any part of the child's genitals.
3 any touching by a person, including touching through clothing, of the anus, breast, or any part of the genitals of a child
4 any touching of any part if the body of a child, including touching through clothing, with the anus, breast, or any part of the genitals of a person.
As long as he did none of these then he did not violate the law.
Legally when you turn 17 you can have sex with a 99 year old if that is what you want, he can not be prosecuted. But until you are 18 or over your mother is still your parent and must abide by her rules.
If Im A File Clerk Can I Eventually Move My Way Up To Legal Assistant At A Law Firm?
If legal assistant is the same as a secretary, then yes. You do not need a college degree to be a legal secretary.
If the firm considers a legal assistant to be the same as a paralegal, then no, at least not in California - UNLESS you have met certain requirements prior to 12/31/03.
Business & Professions Code
§6450. Paralegals-Definition; Scope and Limitations of Lawful Activities; Qualifications; Certification
c. A paralegal shall possess at least one of the following:

BAC should be recorded in medical records as hospita practice. Orig. case was Schmerber v. California 1966)
13. Bodily Intrusions need search warrant (Rodrigues v. Furtado 1991)
14. Modeling of Blouse (Holt v. US 1910)
This is all MA law, FL is probably different b/c MA has very strict laws that limit police action to a much higher degree then the 49 other states and even the federal government. Even federal cases don't always apply in my state so.
