What Is A Typical Day Like For A Non-Litigation Lawyer?
It Seems Like They Must Be Doing A Lot Of Paperwork. Filing Motions And Stuff.. But I Hear They Have Paralegals Ect To Do That For Them. So What Does A Real Estate Atorney Or Enviromental Lawyer Do All Day?
Im Considering A Career Change, But I Want To Feel Like My Time Is Spent Doing Things That Are Productive And Important. Right Now Im A Software Developer, But 90% Of My Time Is Spent On Nonsense: Going To Unnecessary Meetings, Filling Out Request Forms, Writing Documentation That Will Never Be Read.. I Need Something More Worthwhile To Do With My Life.
So basically what you're saying is, what do lawyers do if they aren't in court I assume. There can be a lot of litigation in real estate and environmental law. Real estate lawyers can spend a lot of their time reviewing and/or drawing up complicated land sale contracts and transactions (e.g. dotting i's and adding magical legalese like "time is of the essence"). But they can also spend a great deal of time litigating if there is a land or contract dispute. (The majority of cases I have to read in my contracts class involve some type of land dispute.) Many times, real estate agents draw up land sales contracts so the only time they will need a lawyer is if things get sticky and something might need to be litigated or there is a complicated land contract that needs to be made specifically for the clients needs like the sales of skyscrapers, hotels, large tracts of land, etc.
Environmental lawyers might spend a lot of time writing up drafts of bills that they would like their state representative to submit to the legislature. They also might spend a lot of time researching and dealing with tort claims arising out of environmental problems (like in the movies, "Erin Brokovich," and "A Civil Action").
Other things that lawyers do other than litigation is meeting with clients, drawing up complaints and petitions, discussing settlement deals with the other parties, writing demand letters, research, preparing memos and briefs, doing depositions, etc.
Which Career Have Better Working Conditions:Law Or Civil Engineering???
Yes,I Mean Work In Office With Air Conditioning,Well Dressed Etc...I Have To Decide Which One I Go To Study...
Ok. It's a novel way to choose your career. I would have normally suggested doing some voluntary work at a law firm then an engineering firm just to get some idea of what it will be like. Usually a month is enough. Be clear to your employer about your aim. If you are a diligent enough worker, then you'd usually be remembered when you graduate. Talk to your university entry co-ordinator/admin about delaying your entry until you make up your mind. It's your life and your money, so don't be pushed into doing something you won't like. They'll understand, they were young once too.
Working conditions vary according to the employer. Some law firms prefer that their partners go out and do their own pre-trial work and pro-bono work (eg. giving free advice to elderly folk about their wills). This gives them more exposure and a better handle on people. Some law firms will concentrate on corporate tax or real estate instead, which means more desk work. It really depends on what the law firm's overall aim for clientele are.
As for Civil Engineering, there is no such thing as a permanent desk job. Eventually you just have to visit the site because the guys working the site will have hundreds of questions for you. You usually want to inspect the quality of work for yourself anyway. Also, the guys working the site will usually have lots of clever ideas on how to make the work go smoother.
Good luck. Go out. Be observant, both outwards and inwards.
I Need Help To Get A Work Visa. I Am A Lawyer By Profession.?
Hi I Am Lawyer By Profession And I Currently Live In Pakistan. I Want To Get A Work Visa So I Can Get A Job In Usa, Especially In Ny. Does Anyone Know A Company That Is Willing To Sponsor Me. I Need Help
Pick a visa
There are basically NINE ways that you can get a visa to live and work in the US:
(1) Marriage (or engagement in anticipation of marriage) to a US citizen.
(2) You have skills that are in short supply in the US e.g. scientific or medical training. A degree is normally a must. Or you have superior specialist skills with at least 12 years experience. (H visas)applications next received on 1st April 2014
(3) You have an Employer who is willing to transfer you - but even the employer has to make a good case for you - so you have to be a manager unless you fall under category (2) above.(L visas)
(4) You may get a Green card in the diversity lottery (UK citizens, except N.Ireland, are not generally eligible unless you, your spouse or parents were born abroad or held a different citizenship.
(5)You own or buy business (does not get you permanent resident status i.e. no green card)You must be a national of a qualifying Treaty countries. The business must have a minimum value of around $150k (more the better) bearing in mind you will need somewhere to live and with any startup business you will need at least 2 years living money as back up. So a figure of $350k would be a nearer minimum (E-2 visas)
(6)You are an "investor" i.e. you have at least US $1m in assets to bring with you. half of that in a few areas. And your background will be investigated to the hilt. (EB-5 visas)
(7)You have a close relative (mother, father, brother, sister and no further) who is an US citizen who would sponsor you, approx time this take 2-12 years?
(8.The R1 visa is available to foreign members of religious denominations, having bona fide non-profit religious organizations in the U.S., for entering the U.S. to carry on the activities of a minister or religious worker as a profession, occupation or vocation
(9)THE UNUSUAL You are in a position to claim refugee status/political asylum. or You get a member of Congress to sponsor a private bill with legislation that applies just to you.
The S visa issued to persons who assist US law enforcement to investigate and prosecute crimes and terrorist activities such as money laundering and organized crime
Recruitment agent will not take you seriously if you are not already in the US. Writing for jobs is really a waste of time; likewise US employers have no idea what foreign qualification are or mean (except Degrees) it may pay you to get your qualification translated into a US equivalent, there are Companies that do this (www.wes.org) ..
But if you are getting a visa under (2) above then you need a job offer before you can get the visa. Your Employer will be your sponsor this will cost them upward of $5k. So you can see you have to be offering something really special to get considered They may also have to prove to the Dept of labor that there is no American who can do the job if the position is to be permanent ©
DO NOT USE VISA CONSULTANTS
THER IS NO SHORTAGE OF LAWYER IN THE US
Take Away Fathers Parental Rights ?
I Want To Know What I Can Do. The Father Of My Daughter And I Were Divorced In April '12 But Have Been Separated Since Dec '10. He Used To Help Me With Support When He Could And That Was Fine With Me While Things Got Settled In Court And In Writing. He Stopped Visiting Her Around The Same Time We Got Divorced. He Hasn'T Helped Me Either Since Aug Of Last Year (2011) He Gave Me Some Money For Xmas And The. $200 In May And That'S The Last Of Anything He'S Done. I'Ve Made Sure To Communicate With Him About Her Starting School And Uniforms. He Always Says He'Ll Give Me The Money But Never Does. I Want To Know If I Even Have A Ground To Stand On If I File To Take His Rights Away. Also My Daughter Has Recently Started Counseling Bc She Suffered From Desperation Anxiety She Feels Like I'M Going To Abandon Her..
Your child's father is clearly a deadbeat, but are you sure you want to punish him by taking away his parental rights? Your daughter is already in therapy suffering with "separation anxiety", and she's afraid you'll abandon her as her father seems to have done. If you take legal steps to bar him from seeing her, you'll be, at the same time, taking legal steps to bar her from seeing him. The hammer gets hit just hard as does the nail. She's afraid you'll abandon her because her father already abandoned her -- don't make it worse by seeking legal restrictions. When she discovers that you took legal stps to keep her and dad apart, her fear that you will abandon her will worsen -- after all, if you don't care about her seeing her father, maybe you don't care about seeing her yourself, in her eyes.
Children think parents are immune to mistakes, they think parents have magic powers to make money happen, make food happen, protect them from danger. Kids can't imagine that their parents might be responsible for divorce -- after all, parents are magic. So when parents separate, kids think it's because the kids arent good enough, don't behave well enough -- the kids take upon themselves the entire burden of blame, so while they miss their parent, they also blame themselves for that parent's absence.
What you should do, IMHO, is to reassure her that you'll never abandon her, that her father loves and misses her, tell her he thinks about her all the time, and he'll visit her every chance he gets. Tell her it's nobody's fault that you and he separated, but you just couldn't get along, and you both decided her life would be better if you two were apart. Sing his praises. If she asks why he isn't contributing financially, tell her he wants to, but just can't right now. Kids are incredibly intuitive, and they notice everything. As she grows up, you'll be her hero for being so kind to her feelings. She well may resent her father for not stepping up to the plate -- don't make her also resent you because you spent her childhood trying to hurt and belittle her father, trying to keep her from him.
Be mad at him if you want to, but don't drag her into it -- she's suffering plenty enough right now.
If You Give An Attorney A Retainer (I.E. $500.00) Shouldn'T Their Services Be Deducted From That Amount?
Once The $500 Is Used Up Then You Would Be Responsible For Sending In Additional Funds. Am I Wrong On This?
While I can't say for sure how all states interpret the Model Rules of Professional Conduct (the basis for most state's ethical rules), the general requirement is that attorney's fees must be reasonable for the service provided. As such, a retainer is typically viewed as an advance deposit for fees and expenses which should be billed against the retainer (as an attorney has not earned the retainer until he/she has performed legal services). Obviously, if the bills exceed the retainer (and it is difficult to see how a $500.00 retainer would be adequate to cover any matter involving litigation), the client can be required to pay those additional fees.

There are so many variables. I have worked with immigration issues for employment purposes. I don't know what your situation is, but you should probably contact an immigration attorney. Good luck!
