Most individuals do not think about acquiring a legal professional till they are in desperate need. The legal situation may possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust attorney. It may be a criminal condition you want to be defended on. Firms need to have lawyers as well, regardless of whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unjustified business strategies. Tax legal professionals are also effective while engaging with government issues. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A large, full service law firm has many legal professionals with numerous areas of skills, so depending on your current legal issue, you can immediately retain the greatest lawyer or attorney to fulfill your existing need without having to commence your search each time you need legal support.It is ideal to obtain a legal professional you can believe. You need one with a good track record, who ishonest, effective, and wins cases. You would like to have assurance that they will represent you correctly and bill you reasonably for their services. From time to time a referral from a buddy or business affiliate can be valuable, however you should continue to keep your options open and review all the firms accessible, because when you require legal support, you need it quickly and you desire the finest you can afford.

I Am A Citizen, My Wife Is Not Legal. What Are My Options? She Is Divorced And Has Kids. Advice Will Be Great!
I Am Now An American Citizen. I'Ve Been Married To My Wife For 2 Years. My Wife Was Divorced And Has Kids. She Is Not A Legal Permanent Resident And Her I-94 Expired In 2002. What Issues/Problems Will I Run Into? I Am Trying To Petition For Her. What Forms Should I Fill Out? Do I Need A Lawyer?
You don't need a lawyer. A lawyer would only be necessary if she had some other matter that complicated her case, such as criminal convictions here in the USA.
Your case is simple. Since she came here with a Visa she'll be allowed to adjust status.
File I-130, I-485, I-765, I-834 and G-325A. File them all at the same time, in the same envelope. As soon as you file the papers she will be 100% legal. She should use the receipt from the Citizenship and Immigration Service as proof of her pending petition. She will continue to be 100% legal until a final decision is made on the petition and adjustment of status request.
Crazy Customer Legal Advice?
Can You Get A Restraining Order On A Crazy Customer? This Customer Received Service Now Wants Her Money Back, She Got Her Service But I Think She Just Wants To Screw Some One To Get Some Money Back, She Says She Will Take Us To Court Which I Welcome It Than Dealing With Her, Keeps On Calling Me On Cell Phone And Says She Is Already Telling Everyone She Knows To Never Come To Us.
Thanks In Advance
You do not have a legal problem. You have a customer problem.
It becomes a legal problem when and if she sues you. If that happens, consult your attorney, of course.
You cannot control her calling you. You cannot control her telling others (or telling you that she is telling others). But you do not have to answer her calls.
If your community has a mediation service, it might serve you well to investigate that option. Much cheaper than lawsuits. It gives you an opportunity to have a neutral party who is trained in mediation assist you in coming to an agreement with this "crazy customer". If the mediation effort fails because of her being "crazy", it could help you if you later have to deal with her in court.
If you cannot or do not want to go to mediation with her, tell her in one last phone conversation, that further conversations are not expected to be useful to anyone. Ask that she not call you again. You cannot lose her again as a customer; she is already gone.
Consult your attorney to find out what options you have at this point.
You may need to contact the police if the harassment continues.
What Is A Law Firm'S Typical Billable Hour Expectations For A Newly Minted Associate Attorney?
A Few Classmates And I Have Debated Over What The Typical Billable Hour Expectations Are From Ca Law Firms Of A New Associate Attorney.
Recently, I Came Across A Job Offer For A 0-1 Yr Experienced Attorney, Which Stated That 200 A Month / 2400 A Year Billable Is Required.
Is This An Unrealistic Expectation For A Firm To Have Of A New Attorney?
Can 200 Billable Hours A Month / 2400 A Year Actually Be Achieved?
Is There Any Type Of Typical Billable Hour Requirement Range That This Falls Outside Or Within?
2,300 to 2,400 billable hours a year is a standard expectation for a first year associate in a big law firm or any regional law firm that pays comparable salary. It is not an unrealistic expectation and if you want to pursue a career as an attorney in a big law firm you have to be willing to put in the hours necessary to achieve that goal. Not every hour at work is billable either. While it varies depending on the ability and efficiency of the associate and the efficiency of those attorneys with whom the associate works, the ratio of billable hours to non-billable hours is usually in the neighborhood of 2:1 to 3:1 which translates into about 3,200-3,600 hours for the year. Associates at big law firms achieve these hours by working late almost every day, coming in on weekends frequently and working while on vacation (hence the term "sweatshop" firm that is attributed to most big law firms). There really are not many jobs in any area where it is reasonable for a person with a professional graduate degree to expect to receive a six figure salary as an entry level employee so the work hour expectation is not that unfair or unrealistic.
As a first year associate, you really have no practical skills as a lawyer to use as a basis for evaluation for most of your first year, so your end of the year performance review relies heavily upon your billable hours. While it is not fatal to your career to fall a hundred hours or so short of 2,400, there is not a lot of flexibility to allow for a favorable performance review if you fall much shorter than that in terms of billable hours.
If those hours seem unpalatable for you then you should seek employment elsewhere such as with a government agency or a smaller firm although there is no guarantee that a smaller firm with lower pay will not have heavy billable hour or work hour requirements, especially given the employment market conditions for lawyers in the current economy which is even worse than the traditionally already bad employment market for entry level attorneys. If you do work at one of these positions your salary will most likely be a fraction of that of a big law firm associate with the median being around 40k (possible lower in this economy).
Property Lawyer Or Major !! I Have A Homework Help!!!?
Susan Has Contracted To Sell Her Home To Bob. Sale Is For $100,000 Cash With No Conditions Except That Title Be Marketable And The Sale To Close On July 20 At Susan’S Attorney’S Office.July 18, Bob Calls Susan And Informs Her That He Had Planned To Buy The Property By A “Loan Assumption” (I.E. Rich Uncle). Rich Uncle, However, Has Refused And Bob Does Not Have The Cash To Go Ahead With The Deal.Bob Further Mentions That He Has Some Other Real Estate Worth About $500,000 And He Could Sell Or Get A Loan Against This Real Estate And Have Enough Cash To Go Ahead With The Deal In The Future.Bob Asks Susan If She Will Extend The Closing For A Month, Until Aug 20.Susan Says No And Informs Bob That She Is Ready, Willing And Able To Perform On July 20.On July 20, No Closing Takes Place.On July 21, Susan Sues Bob For Breach Of Contract.Please Answer :(1) Has Bob Breached The Contract? (B) Does Susan Have The Right To Sue Bob On July 21? (C) If Susan Can Sue Bob On July 21, Any Remedies Availab?
1. Yes, Bob has breached the contract.
2. Yes, Susan DOES have the right to sue BUT must first look to the Restatement 2d (or the laws of her jurisdiction) with respect to contracts for real property & giving the opportunity to cure. Usually, she must give Bob an opportunity to cure of 10 days (sometimes more), but NOT ALWAYS.
3. She can sue for Breach of Contract. But, she will NOT get a remedy that commands Bob to perform - specific performance almost NEVER gets awarded, especially in such a situation. She may be able to settle the debt by either renegotiating the payment terms OR by attaching a security interest in Bob's other property. For this, she must get a written agreement under the new terms AND file a Financing Statement with the local court clerk or county office - the court clerk will know exactly where to file for your jurisdiction. If she does not do BOTH (get a written agreement & file a financing statement) she will not be able to take priority over other creditors who may have an interest in Bob's other property which is not yet perfected.
Should I Get A Probate Attorney Or Family Law?
I Am In The Process Of Forming A Domestic Partnership With Someone Who Has A Large Estate. My Partner Has His Own Attorney Drafting Up The Domestic Partnership, And I Have Been Told To Retain My Own Counsel To Represent My Interests In The Partnership.
I Was Told By A Probate Attorney That It Should Be Written In The Prenup Domestic Partnership Whatever He Is Giving To Me, Such As His House For Example, And That He Is Amending His Trust To Reflect That Change.
His Attorney Did Not Like That Idea. Should I Get A Probate Attorney To Represent Me On The Prenup, Or A Family Law Attorney?
Since these probate-related issues seem to have become important, I'd suggest having a probate attorney represent you. S/he probably knows enough about family law to also handle any such issues that might arise and could consult a family law attorney if necessary.
What Is The Book That Lawyers Look At For Personal Injury, Malpractice And Workers Comp Injury For Settlements?
I'm not sure because I haven't been involved in personal injury since before law school, but I think the book you're looking for is:
What's It Worth? A Guide to Personal Injury Awards and Settlements
See the best description here:
The 2003 version is available cheaper here:
But with something like this, you'll probably want the new version from Lexis for 209 dollars. The improved accuracy is worth a LOT more than the $150 price difference between amazon and lexis.
