The majority of people today do not think about obtaining a law firm until they are in desperate need. The lawful matter could be personal, like family law, for a breakup or if you are searching for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer or attorney. It may be a felony case you want to be defended on. Firms want legal representatives as well, regardless of whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unjustified business strategies. Tax lawyers are also beneficial whenever engaging with government difficulties. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A big, full service law firm has numerous attorneys with distinct areas of skills, so based on your own legal issue, you can instantly hold on to the very best lawyer or attorney to satisfy your existing need without having to start your search each time you need legal assistance.It is best to obtain a lawyer you can have faith in. You want one with a good track record, who ishonest, efficient, and wins cases. You need to have confidence that they will stand for you effectively and invoice you reasonably for their products and services. Sometimes a recommendation from a friend or business associate can be useful, even so you should continue to keep your options open and review all the firms available, for the reason that when you require legal support, you need it rapidly and you really want the best you can pay for.

Michigan Courts (Family Law) Rights Violated?
Dealing With Child Support Issues In Mi.
My Husband Has A Son.
The Little Guys Mother Submitted A Request For Additional Child Support Last Year. My Husbands Income Was Not Reported Correctly So He Filed An Appeal With The Help Of A Lawyer. The Lawyer Filed The Appeal In May. We Recently Received The Courts Decision. We Don't Agree With The Amount Of Child Care He Is Ordered To Pay (The Little Guys Mom Is A Liar And Much More). The Court Papers Stated That We Had 7 Days To Appeal The Decision. Called The Lawyer Every Day And Received No Response From Him. Other Members Of His Office Stated That He Was Not In The Office And To Leave A Message. We Left Message After Message And Received No Response. Wednesday Was The Deadline To File An Appeal. With No Response From The Lawyer, My Husband Went To The Court House And Filed The Appeal Papers On His Own (You Don't Need A Lawyer For That).
A Clerk Stamped The Paper Work And Accepted It. Another Clerk That Was Nearby Took The Paper Work And Looked It Over. She Then Stated That They Would Not Accept My Husbands Appeal. Why? The Clerk Simply Stated That They Would Not Accept It (It Was Already Stamped By A Different Clerk).
We Received Absolutely No Help From The Lawyer (He Was Paid For His Services). I Had No Idea That A Clerk Had The Right To Deny Paper Work. We Have Tried To Do Right But The System Seems To Simply Make Up Rules As They Go.
My Husband Has Always Paid Support And More. We Like To Spend Time With The Little Guy But His Mother Is A Crazy Liar And Wont Allow My Husband To See His Son.
In Allegan County Michigan, Fathers Are Treated Like Dirt.
I Feel Like My Husbands Rights Were Violated.
Are The Actions Of The Lawyer And Clerk Legal?
Serious Answers Only, Please.
If You Don't Have Anything Decent To Say Don't Say Anything At All. Thanks!
The actions of the clerk are likely legal. There are requirements as to the contents of any appeal and really you need to be a lawyer or have lots of experience dealing with them to meet all the requirements. Without knowing more about why the clerk rejected it, it's really impossible to say.
The lawyer did not violate any laws per se, but you could likely sue him for malpractice. Failing to file a timely appeal is a serious breach of his contract with you and a serious breach of legal ethics. I would speak to his office about the situation - the office manager or head partner if there is one - and let them know that you're completely unhappy with your representation. If they do nothing to compensate you, contact another firm to look over possible malpractice claims.
Protecting A Future Business Name And Logo?
I Want To Open A Bakery A Few Years From Now, I Still Have A Lot Of Planning And Saving To Do. But I Already Have A Name Chosen For My Business. I Have A Blog That Uses The Name Of My Business As The Title And The Logo I Will Be Using And I Was Wondering What I Have To Do To Protect Those?
Can I Trademark Them Even Thought I Won'T Be Opening A Business For A Few Years?
Business trademarks are a costly process. I don't think that is what you need. To protect a business name, you register that name with the Secretary of State. That protects the name within that state only. It also lets you know if the name is available. If not, you need to find another name. Also, you should consider setting up a corporation with the business name. That is another way of securing it. Again, that is filed with the Secretary of State. You can have an inactive corporate shell until you need it. Also, the corporate name is only protected within the state of incorporation. If you plan to do business in other states, you will need to register your business name with those states in order to protect it there.
As for the blog, you can buy that domain name. There are a lot of internet companies that assist you in securing a domain name. The cost can be as little as $20.
As for the logo, that is tougher. If you really want to protect it, you need to go through the business trademark registration process. You most likely will need the assistance of a business lawyer to get the logo trademarked. I suppose you are aware that business lawyers seldom work cheap.
Also, I see someone suggested legalzoom. I have mixed thoughta about that. Sure it is a cheap way to do legal documents. The problem is you do not know exactly what you need to have done. You do not know exactly what you need to put into those documents. So, what you generate there may not be all that beneficial. I have had to straighten out more than one mess where people tried to do there own legal documents on-line. I probably could have done them correctly in the beginning for less than I had to charge them to clean up the mess they made trying to do it themselves. Much of what a start up business owner pays her/his business lawyer for is not the documents, it is for the advice.
Is There Potential For International Lawyers?
I Am Planning On Minoring In Pre-Law And Majoring In Norwegian When I Went To School (Probably St. Olaf U Of Minnesota, Others?). The Problem Is That I Hear Of Almost No One Talking About International Law So I Wonder How Good Of A Career It Really Is. There Is A Teacher At My School Whose Son Is A Lawyer That Travels All Around Asia. I Kind Of Want To Do That But With Scandinavia. (Ps I Live In The Usa And Speak Swedish Decently). I Mean There Are Jobs In Norway, My Dad'S Friend Worked There For 15 Years On The Oil Platforms. I Just Dont Know If Being A Lawyer Would Actually Pay Off (As In I Am Employed). Do You Think It Would Be More Beneficial To Go Into The Science Sector?
Ok, I know a lawyer who was in international law. (He's now a youth pastor at my church). He got his degree in Australia, came to the United States. He said that the demand was really high and he basically had firms fighting for him to go to their firm. He said, that basically he'd get offers of $200,000-$400,000 a year easily.
So yes, International Law is a great career.

Do I Need To Seek Legal Counsel?
I Was Stopped In Pa And Cited With &Quot;Criminal Mischief - Intentionally Damaging Real Or Personal Property Of Another&Quot;, &Quot;Consume An Alcoholic Beverage Underage&Quot; And &Quot;Public Drunkenness&Quot;. The Two Alochol Related Citations Are Due To Denial Of A Breathalyzer (Which I Was Never Described The Consequences Of Denying It By The Officer) And The Mischief Citation Was Because I Slapped A Parked Car With My Hand (This Is What Brought The Attention Of The Officer). I Was Not Viably Under The Influence Of Alcohol By Any Means, I Just Denied Taking The Breathalyzer. I Am 20 Years Old And Will Be Turning 21 In Less Than 1 Month. What Is My Best Course Of Action? How Long Can Each Of These Mentioned Charges Stay On My Record? Do I Have A Right To Be Explained The Consequences Of Denying The Breathalyzer? I Am Not A Pa Citizen.
It may be best for you to seek legal counsel, but you are more than likely going to receive some fines and probation. The officer does not have to explain to you the consequences of denying the Breathalyzer. Denying the breathalyzer when the police have some sort of reasonable suspicion you were drinking. You must've been showing other signs you were drinking, even if they were not obvious to you. Also with denying the breathalyzer you are showing you are hiding something, and that can be enough evidence you are guilty. If you are driving and refuse a breathalyzer when they have probable cause your license is automatically suspended for a year.
If you are found guilty those things will remain on your record for life unless you get them expunged.
About How Many Hours Does A Lawyer Work In One Week?
I Am Curious To Know How Stressful A Career In Law Generally Is.
It depends on the job. Private practice tends to be the most stressful and can be among the most stressful careers out there.
For junior lawyers, it often entails long hours (in some big law firms 60 hours a week and 3000 hours a year is not unusual) and even for firms that don't require lawyers to clock that many hours, lawyers live in what is known as a billable hour culture. Law firms make their money by billing the services of their attorneys by the hour and lawyers are valued by the number of hours they bill so it creates a working environment where most lawyers are literally required to account for every 6 to 15 minutes of their workday for at least 8 hours a day on a timekeeping system.
On top of that, more senior lawyers who are partners in a law firm have the pressures of running the firm as a business, spending additional ours maintaining and developing client relations, and handling all the executive administrative responsibilities and overhead issues.
The hours can vary though as some smaller law firms have a business model that does not require continuous long hours at work because it is not extremely ambitious in terms of maximizing profits. The flip side is of course that those law firms don't offer as much income as the other firms.
Government and public interest law tends to be the least stressful. Because lawyers don't have to bill by the hour it relieves a lot of the pressure to work long hours and they don't have to account for their time the way private practice lawyers do. The trade off is that the income for these positions tends to be on the low end.
