Where Can I Find Free Legal Consultation From A Real Lawyer?
I Need To Talk To A Lawyer About A Legal Situation, On A Phone Or Through Email. It Is An Issue Of Confusion In The Courts And I Need To Discuss The Matter With A Real Lawyer.
Many attorneys offer free consultations, but usually the attorneys prefer that the meeting take place in person. Since you do not give your location, you should contact your state or local bar association (or entity that licenses attorneys). Many have free lawyer referral services, which will provide you with a free referral to an attorney. Whether that attorney will charge for the consultation is usually up to the attorney.
Attention Attorneys: Law Firms And Medical Marijuana?
I Am Curious About Hiring Policy In Law Firms Regarding The Medical Use Of Marijuana.
1. Is There Drug Testing Prior To Hiring And/Or During Employment?
2. Does The Policy Differ Between Different Firms?
3. If I Was (Hypothetically Speaking, Of Course) Using Marijuana For Medicinal Purposes, Can A Law Firm Find Evidence Of This On Some Registry Or Database?
Per The Subject Line, This Question Is Aimed At Attorneys. If You Are Not An Attorney, Can You Give Me A Credential For Your Knowledge?
Thanks In Advance.
1) Drug testing prior to and during employment is up to the individual employer.
2) Again, see above answer. Some employers may test at the time of the job offer while, some may randomly test during employment while others may not test at all. Again, it depends on the employer as each employer will differ.
3) No, unless you provide them with a release to gain access to medical history etc. If you are a medical user, you should have your card (depending on the state) to provide evidence that you have been authorized to obtain cannabis for medical purposes.
Last year a bill was pushed through to allow users of medical cannabis to be protected from employment termination in California. The governor vetoed the bill, but recommended that more research should be done to provide further information regarding medical cannabis. Shortly after, the governor began to speak about ending prohibition.
In other words, regardless of being a legal medicinal holder you are not protected. The individual employer reserves the right to be the deciding factor. One could assume that most employers would steer clear of this issue do to potential liabilities.
If you want to work for a law firm, I would suggest working for a firm that practices in marijuana laws. You can find lists of law firms who specialize in cannabis laws and defense in hightimes.
You might want to also check out norml.org for further info as I doubt that you will find an answer from an attorney regarding this issue on a public message board.
What's The Difference Between An Attorney And A Lawyer?
No difference. In Britain and Canada, we tend to use the term "lawyer" more often; whereas in the USA, "attorney" is more common. There is a difference in Britain, however, between a solicitor and a barrister. There, a solicitor is a lawyer who does legal work which doesn't involve the courts; while a barrister is a lawyer who argues cases in court. On the western side of the Atlantic, the latter is called a trial lawyer/attorney.
It's all about semantics.
Where Does City Hall Get Their Laws From?
How Can City Hall Tell Me How To Live?
I Live In Usa.
How Can I Beat The City Hall Laws?
City Hall gets its power from the people. They elected a City Council and a Mayor. The Mayor and Council pass ordinances to make the town a good place to live for everyone. If you want input on an ordinance that is being proposed, most ordinances must be read at three different meetings so citizens may comment on them. If enough people speak against a certain ordinance, the Mayor/Council will reconsider their decision and not pass it.
If the ordinance was passed before you moved to town, it is assumed you were aware of the existing ordinances and agreed to them or you never would have moved into the community.
Can you "beat" the law? If you mean come up with some witty loophole, you can, but that's not the best way to handle it. The best way to change a law is to get a petition. Check the ordinances and you will learn how many signatures you need to get an ordinance repealed/rescinded. If you get the necessary number of signatures, the Council will reconsider their position on an ordinance. In some localities, you may be able to get the ordinance on a ballot so the people can vote whether to keep it or get rid of it.

Actually Some Of His Schoolmate Saw It Also...So Now The Police Told Me To Wait For The Police Report Cuz It Will Take Sometime...Now I Want To Put Some Restraining Order Against This Teacher Plus Hire A Lawyer...To Make Him Pay...
Now My Question Is Should I Do It????
wow that messed up, yea I can see where you would be concerned about the staff retaleateing and your child has a while left to go in school. I would take it to the school board. I would agree not to press criminal charges if the teacher resigned, and stay far away from my child. If the school gives him any crap I would take it further. But awhile ago a first grade teacher in my sons school whom actually taught my daughter when she was in first grade( which she is now in 6th ) was having problems with a child, he was very unruley, now this teacher had been in the school for 32 years, she had seen and delt with a heck of alot, but she put gray duct tape on the childs mouth, it left a huge red mark and some of the gray sticky stuff, imagine the embaressment of this child and his family. I loved her as my childs teacher but I could only imagine what that child felt and his parents. well she ended up resigning and actually was aressted but was freeded on bail at the same time. she never seen the inside of a jail cell. now if we snatch our child up in public and almost choke them or tape their mouth and leave a mark what do you think would happen to us? so why is okay for them to get just a slap on the hand? Sue his rear end and put him in jail.and if the school has anything to say, sue them for harassement and home school him. good luck e-mail me and let me know the outcome if you would? my address is in my profile.
Divorce, Custody Question?
My Best Friend Is Just Starting The Process Of Getting A Divorce ( In Pa).
Her Husband Makes Good Money, They Have 3 Children Under The Age Of 5, She Has No Degree And Has Always Been A Stay At Home Mom. They Just Build A New House That Is In Both Of Their Names, And A Car That Is Just In His Name.
Since His Income Is Her Income She's Just Wondering What She's In For? He Will Give Her The Car, Kids, And House. But Will She Have To Pay The Loan Payments? How Do You Pay For An Attorney?
She Has No Family, And No Friends Because He's Controlled Her And Been Abusive.
Please Any Experience With This
PA, generally, favors the women, so she's in luck! I know 2 of my uncles got screwed in their divorces up there, so she should make out like a bandit!
She'll probably get the kids, or at least joint (if he fights her for it). He'll have to pay child support and alimony regardless.
PA is a communal property state, so any assets will be divided 50/50. They'll either have to sell the house and split the profit or he'll have to buy her out of her half (which should make for a nice down payment on a new car and a new house for her).
She should call a lot of attorneys (consultations are usually free) and explain her situation and she'll probably find one that will not charge her until the divorce is final (which she can pay with the alimony, child support or divorce settlement) or they can find a way to charge the fees back to her soon-to-be ex (which is what my mom is doing).
A likely scenario is that she will receive child support for all 3 kids, she'll get alimony (for a few years) & full custody leaving him with visitation every other weekend, alternating holidays, and some time in the summers.
