Im Really Interested In Becoming A Criminal Defense Attorney.. Im In High School. Where Do I Start?
Any Advice? Where Can I Intern / Get Practice? What Do I Study (My School Dose Not Offer Any Classes For This Career)? Help?
I am a retired attorney and spent five years doing criminal defense work.
You do not take courses in criminal law until law school.
In high school get the best grades and board scores possible. Go to a good university. Most state universities are fine. I went to one and majored in history. Amy major which requires a lot of critical reading and writing is fine preparation for law school. There is no major called pre-law, which is simply a description of your reason for being in undergraduate school.
At the start of your senior year in college, apply to several law schools. You will need to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The best time to take it is in June of your junior year in college or in September of your senior year, so you will need to take the test before you apply to law schools. The test is similar to the SAT, but much more difficult. It lasts half a day. Look at the LSAT website for info.
Apply to at least eight law schools. Just as for undergraduate school, include "fit", "reach" and "safety" schools. Be sure that the law school is approved by the American Bar Association. See their website.
Go to the best law school you can, but any ABA approved law school is fine. Unless you are going to one of the ten top national law schools, it is easiest to go in the state where you plan to practice. The law schools at state universities are fine.
In law school, compete for a position on the best law review. Law reviews are student-edited legal journals and membership on one is highly valued by employers. If you make law review, it will take a lot of your time.
In your summers in law school, try to do internships in law offices which handle criminal law. They may or may not be paid. It does not matter if they do prosecution or defense law.
In your third (last) year of law school, apply for a job in a public defender's office. This is the best on-the-job training you can get. You can also get good training in a prosecutor's office.
Take a bar exam review course before you take the bar exam.
Pass the bar exam, be admitted to the bar and you are now a lawyer!
I hope you enjoy criminal defense law. (Please read this whole paragraph before coming to any conclusions.) You will spend all day working with criminals, as most of your clients will not be first offenders, but will already have been convicted of other crimes and have spent time in jail or prison. Most of them are not very nice people. They will lie to you. You will lose most of your cases as district attorneys prosecute many more guilty people than innocent ones.
Perhaps after about five years, you will decide that you would rather be a criminal cases prosecutor and you will join a prosecutor's office.
I did and was much happier in this position. I then, due to circumstance outside my profession, was able to retire at age 51.
Good luck and please feel free to email me if you have other questions,

The Civil Lawyer Wants To Build A Big Building Near Us By Our Home And He Needs The Piece That My Father Has A Partial Claim There.

When you have a legal dispute with a lawyer, you need another lawyer. I know it's hard to believe, but in commercial & property litigation, a lawyer's reputation for representing criminal clients isn't going to help him.
Is A Court-Appointed Lawyer Good Or Bad?
Ok, So My Sister Is Being Charged With A Felony(Wounding Charge) From A Domestic Dispute Against Her Bf...And Currently She Is Sitting In Jail..We'Re Trying To Work Out Getting Her A Bond Until Her Actual Prelim. Hearing In A Month....But The Courts Have Given Her A Lawyer. Right Now, We(Our Family) Don'T Have The Money To Hire A Private Lawyer...Mostly B/C My Parents Had To Hire A Family Lawyer A Week Ago, To Try To Get Custody Of My Sister'S Child...This Pending Charge Against My Sister Was Definitely In Self-Defense, And We Have Numerous Witnesses That Can Testify On Her Behalf Of What Her Bf Has Done To Her For The Past Year...
Now We'Re Worried About How Well This Court-Appointed Lawyer Is Going To Iron Out All The Intricate Details That Are Needed To Defend My Sister, And If He'Ll Spend The X-Tra Time To Make A Really Good Case With The Info We'Re Giving Him...Ive Heard That If A Person Uses These Types Of Lawyers, They Almost Always Get A Higher Sentence B/C They Don'T Do A Good Job...Does Anyone Have Any Input? Have You Had Success With Them Or Complete Disasters?
And If Anyone Knows This...What'S The Difference B/T Court-Appointed Lawyers And Public Defenders? I Was Trying To Do Some Google Searching And Some Sites Say They Are The Same, And Others Say, They Are Different??
It depends on the jurisdiction as to whether or not a court appointed lawyer is the same as a public defender. If the county has enough public defenders, then the court appointed lawyer will almost always be a public defender. If the county does not have enough public defenders, the judge can select a criminal attorney off of a list and assign that attorney to a case.
There are good and bad public defenders. And there are good and bad criminal defense attorneys. I will tell you that when I did my internship (at a county prosecutor's office), I learned that a significant number of the area defense attorneys went into private practice after they were not able to get hired as public defenders. I also saw that some of the prosecutors absolutely detested some of the private criminal defense attorneys and would not offer their clients anything resembling a good plea agreement. The criminal defense attorney got paid regardless of the outcome, so the only person who really suffered was the client.
Your sister's best bet is almost certainly going to be to stick with the court appointed lawyer. Your family will not be able to afford the caliber of criminal defense attorney you would want, and you would probably throw your money away on a minimally competent attorney who is working on a ton of other cases with little or no help. At least a public defender will have an entire office to support him/her.
(And the public defenders who are assigned to the felony cases are the ones with more experience. You won't be getting someone right out of law school.)

How Do I Find A Report Of Traffic Accidents Involving Personal Injury, Property Damage, Speeding?
I Need A Report Or List Of Sorts. I Need This To Show How Many Traffic Accidents Have Occurred In My Neighbor Hood Over The Last 10-20 Years. Accidents Including Speeding Vehicles, Personal Injury Accidents, Property Damage And So On. I Need This Report To Accompany A Petition To Have Speed Bumps Installed In My Neighborhood.

Whatever law enforcement agency handles traffic accidents for your neighborhood could possibly give the information in a few days, but probably not for free. State Traffic agencies usually have that kind of information, not free and it could take 6 -8 weeks.
