Most people today do not think about finding a law firm right up until they are in desperate need. The legal dilemma may possibly be personal, like family law, for a separation or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust law firm. It may be a criminal condition you will need to be defended on. Firms need law firms as well, whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unjustified business procedures. Tax law firms are also effective whenever dealing with government problems. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A sizeable, full service law firm has numerous attorneys with unique areas of abilities, so based on your legal issue, you can immediately hold on to the very best lawyer or attorney to satisfy your existing need without having to commence your search each time you need legal help.It is most effective to obtain a lawyer or attorney you can trust. You need one with a very good track record, who isstraightforward, effective, and wins cases. You want to have assurance that they will represent you the right way and invoice you fairly for their products and services. Sometimes a word of mouth from a pal or business affiliate can be very helpful, having said that you should continue to keep your options open and examine all the firms available, simply because when you need legal support, you need it rapidly and you desire the finest you can pay for.

What Is The Best Field Of Law?
I Am Thinking Of Law School And Was Wondering If Anyone Had Opinions On Which Was The Best Field Of Law...
For Fun Daily Work?
For Time With Family?
For Most Overall Fullfillment?
My husband is an attorney and he has friends in all areas of law. Most are unhappy with their career choice. The ones who are happy are almost all in criminal law (ie. District Attorney or Public Defender.) Public employees tend to have a decent salary, great benefits, and unless you are in trial, reasonable hours. The L.A. Public Defender starts at about $60k and after 15 years, you'll make about $110k. Not the "gobs of money" you think about, but a decent living.
The public sector criminal attorneys are the people who went to law school knowing what they wanted to do and did it. This is the best reason to go to law school.
Too many people go to law school not out of a burning passion for law but because it was a professional program and they thought they'd make good money.
Unless you are in the public sector and fighting for a cause, law is a business like any other. At the "big firms" Senior Partners can make seven figures -- but that's after 20 years of 80 hour work weeks.
The most lucrative field is Patent Law but you've got to have quite a bit of undergraduate science and pass a special Patent Law exam on top of the bar exam to practice in Patent Courts.
Intellectual Property pays more on average than other forms of civil law.
Having your own practice can help you balance work/life issues and can also be quite lucrative. But some people who do this barely squeak out a living. Again, it boils down to your business skills.
If you really want to be a lawyer -- go! Don't let anyone hold you back. But, if you're just searching for a profession, think twice about law. Almost every private sector lawyer I know (including my husband) wishes they had picked another path.

Get In Accident; Same Lawyer, Same Insurance?
I Always Wondered: If Two People Get Into An Car Accident, And They Have The Same Insurance Company And The Same Lawyer, How Does That Work? What If Both Are At Fault? What If Neither Were At Fault?
The same lawyer can not represent both parties.
He would turn down the representation of the other party.
As far as insurance goes...the insurance company will open up a claim under each person's policy. Usually a different adjuster gets assigned to each claim. They handle the claim just the same as any other. This happens all the time....and it's not a big deal.

Hi, I bet if you re read your question, you'd have this huge light go off in you head and you'd know the answer!!! You HAVE to protect your daughter. I cannot imagine what effect this is having on her. It would be bad enough for a child without a disability and because your daughter has Autism, her perception of events is so much more pronounced. Her ability to deal with stress is mostly nill, in most cases. PLEASE!! Call DHS in the city where she lives. They will do an investigation...it will only take 24 hours. That's it! You can let them know that you are willing to take her to your home if that is necessary. Tell them everything you can think of....write it all down before you call them so you don't forget anything. They don't like to be called back with, "I forgot to tell you something". It looks like your nit picking. You can also get an attorney in the city and state where your daughter resides and start custody proceedings. If you two have joint custody and she has physical custody, depending on the laws in her state, you have as much right to the child as she does. That is, if she came to visit and you chose not to return her, her Mom would have the burden of getting her back. You can google the state and then enter statutes on child custody'. I worked for many years with families through DHS and I can almost guarantee you that they not allow her to stay with her Mom at this time. Now, I have a question for you. How much of your child support money do you think goes for the actual care of your daughter? You're absolutely right!!! Very little if any!! Calling DHS is a very easy thing to do. Just pick up that phone and take care of your daughter. She REALLY needs you for goodness sake!! Good luck!! JOSA
Legal Tender....Lawyers Only Please?
If I Offer Us Legal Tender Currency To A Merchant And He Says &Quot;Sorry, We Don'T Accept Cash.&Quot; Is The Transaction Complete. In Other Words, Do I Get My Purchase Without Paying, Even Though I Offered????
The laws of legal tender have been overtaken by events . . . and by the laws on money laundering.
"Legal tender" has come to mean that banknotes may be used to pay obligations to the government that issued them.
Ironically, the laws on legal tender in the UK are such that much or most of the currency circulating, including Scottish and Northern Irish notes, are not legal tender. But any business would be stupid not to accept them.
No, you can't play that game. And small units of currency -- coins -- are not legal tender in large amounts.
How Can I Report Legal Malpractice In California?
How Can I Report My Attorney Without Hiring A Legal Malpractice Lawyer? And How Can This Affect My Current Case?
First, if you are unhappy with your legal representation, you should find new legal representation. I don't understand why would complain about your attorney, yet you still haven't fired him or her.
Second, you can file a complaint with the State Bar of California if you are believe your attorney has violated an ethical standard imposed upon attorneys licensed in California. Keep in mind that the State Bar of California cannot do anything if you are simply unhappy with your attorney or if you had a disagreement with your attorney. A violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct and/or the State Bar Act is required.
The State Bar of California provides a complaint form you can use. They also provide a toll-free number you can use to ask more questions. A link to the complaint form, the toll-free phone number, and other information regarding the complaint process can be found at the link below.
