A large number of people do not think about selecting a lawyer until they are in desperate need. The lawful problem may possibly be personal, like family law, for a breakup or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer or attorney. It may be a felony condition you need to be defended on. Businesses need to have attorneys as well, regardless if they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe not fair business procedures. Tax attorneys are also helpful whenever interacting with government problems. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A huge, full service law firm has many legal professionals with distinct areas of experience, so based upon on your current legal issue, you can instantly hold on to the greatest legal professional to satisfy your existing need without having to commence your search each time you need legal assistance.It is ideal to find a legal representative you can have confidence in. You really want one with a good track record, who istruthful, efficient, and wins cases. You need to have assurance that they will represent you accurately and invoice you fairly for their products and services. Quite often a referral from a friend or business affiliate can be beneficial, however you should keep your options open and review all the firms available, simply because when you require legal help, you need it immediately and you need the best you can pay for.

What Is Divorce Court Like?
What Should I Expect? I Have One Baby And I'M Pregnant And He'S Swore Up And Down He Would Do What Ever It Takes(Legally) To Get The Kids And I Know Once He Gets Them He Would Do Whatever It Takes (Legally Or Not) To Make Sure I Never See Them Again. I Want The Kids To See Him As Much As Possible Without Losing Them Myself. I Jus Wanna Know If It'S Possible If I Jus Ask For The Kids And Nothing Else, I Don'T Even Want Child Support. There Is Nothing Anyone Can Say To Make Me Look Like A Bad Mother Except Sometimes When My Baby Throws Temper Tantrums And Put Her In Her Crib And Close The Door Til She Starts Playing Or Falls Asleep. I'M 19 And Very Independant And Very Lost And Confused, And Know Absolutely Nothing About The Processes I Have To Go Through. Any One With The Facts Of The Things That Will Happen?
Divorce court sucks! It is embarrassing and humiliating. There are a lot of people there who are listening to your private business, and it is so degrading. GET A LAWYER. Do whatever it takes to pay for a good one. Men who are in this position make threats and tell you that things are going to get really nasty and dirty. They can be very intimidating. This is a bluff to make you give in. The louder they bark and the more they threaten you the more scared they are. This is a power issue. Stay strong and definitely get child support. I know how you feel right now. You just want your kids, but don't let him off so easy. Get that support and stand up for yourself. Repeat: Get a good lawyer.
Information To Becoming A Lawyer. Please Help Me!?
I'M A 15 Year Old Wanting To Become A Lawyer, And I Was Wondering What Classes Were Needed To Become Lawyer And Classes That Would Help Me Become A Successful Lawyer. I Also Wanted To Know Where Is The Best Place For A Lawyer To Live In? (Wanting To Become A Immigration Lawyer Or Criminal Defense)
To become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three more years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take classes/seminars etc. to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!)
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available jobs.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of >>>Healthcare or Information Technology! 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 availability! and scholarships!

Top Law Firms For Family Lawyers.?
All I See Is Top Law Firms For Corporate, Tax, Health Lawyers, But What About Family Lawyers?
They tend to work in smaller practices or solo. It's not really a kind of law that lends itself to bringing in clients and keeping them long term, like corporate or tax law.
