Most people do not think about finding a lawyer until finally they are in desperate need. The lawful problem might be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust legal professional. It may be a felony condition you need to be defended on. Organizations want law firms as well, no matter whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unjust business methods. Tax attorneys are also beneficial anytime engaging with government issues. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A large, full service law firm has a lot of legal professionals with diverse areas of skills, so depending on your individual legal issue, you can promptly hold on to the perfect lawyer to meet your existing need without having to start your search each time you need legal assistance.It is most effective to find a lawyer or attorney you can have confidence in. You want one with a good record, who isfrank, effective, and wins cases. You want to have confidence that they will stand for you effectively and invoice you reasonably for their services. Oftentimes a reference from a good friend or business affiliate can be practical, however you should hold your options open and review all the firms available, because when you need to have legal help, you need it instantly and you really want the very best you can pay for.

How Easy Is It To Find A Job As A Lawyer After Your Licensed?
I Want To Know If This A Career Where I Wont Struggle To Find A Job When Im Done Going To School.
I will give you credit for asking about this BEFORE you enrolled in law school. I have bad news:
It is almost impossible in this job market.
Please 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)

Please Help With Probate Attorney!?
Questions 1: Is It Standard Practice To Copy The Client On Actual Documents Filed On Their Behalf In A Probate Case? If Not, Is The Attorney Obligated To Provide Said Copies After The Client Emails A Formal Request? Questions 2: If I Send My Attorney Emails Referencing Important Situations With Tight Deadlines And My Attorney Fails To Reply In Time With The Proposed Deadlines And I Suffer Consequences Due Him Not Responding Accordingly, What Is My Recourse? Questions 3: Is There Anyone, Such As A Court-Appointed Attorney, That Oversees The Actions Of The Probate Attorney? If Yes, Would It Be Beneficial For Me To Contact This Individual Or Would It Just Raise Red-Flags And Complicate Matters Further? Questions 4: Is My Attorney Permitted To Answer Some Questions, But Completely Ignore Others?
Thank You Everyone! I Anxiously Await Your Responses.
if you suffer damage because your lawyer didn't do what they were supposed to, you sue them for mal practice. the judge oversees what happens in probate court. there is no attourney that oversees
what your probate attourney is doing. you need to ask them in person for documents. there is no way for you to prove they ever got your e-mails or read them.

Does Jag Give Legal Advice To Spouses Of Service Members?
Does Jag Give Legal Advice To Dependents Concerning Possible Divorce Or Separation?
They can give some advice and point you to a list of civilian lawyers that specialize in military matters, but in something like divorce, that is a civil matter and not a military one. So all they can do is answer some questions for you, but they cannot represent you or anything.

How Does Where I Go To College Effect My Admission / Acceptance Into Graduate School (Law)?
I Want To Work For A Top Manhattan Law Firm.....Form What I Heard, Law Firms Only Pay Attention To Where I Went To Law School. So I Ask, Why Does Going To An Ivy League College Help Me. Do You Know Of Any Reasons. And, How Does Going To An Ivy League School Help Me Get Into My Dream Law School (Harvard Law) As Oppsoed To If I Went To A Community College??? Thx
The TOP Manhattan law firms only recruit from the top law schools, so you want to get into a top 15 law school if possible. They're looking for candidates who are not only super-smart, but are also extremely hard-working, have good social skills, and have a certain polish to them. To get into a top law school, you need to have good grades as an undergraduate, great LSAT scores, good extracurriculars, great recommendations, and hopefully something else that will make you stand out from the crowd. Law firms admit their students from a variety of colleges and universities, public and private, from around the country. If you do well at a top college or university, it only strengthens your law school application.
