Can A Criminal Attorney Handle A Divorce?
I Know That There Is Criminal Law, Civil Law, Family Law, Environmental Law, Etc.
My Question Is About Criminal Attorneys (Say A Defense Lawyer). If A Defense Attorney Wanted To Take On Your Case, Couldn'T They Handle A Divorce?
It Wouldn'T Be Like A Real Estate Lawyer Trying To Be A Defense Attorney, And It'S A Whole Different Level Of Expertise. I Think It Is Quite Possibly, But One Person That I Know, Who Don'T Know Anything About Law Is Being Obnoxious About It...Saying That It Is As Likely As A Psychiatrist Doing A Gyno Exam (I Didn'T Mean To Be Rude By Repeating What She Said)
I Was Hoping Someone Here Could Have The Answer So That I Could Let Her Know Whether She Was Right Or Wrong.
Actually, there's only one license for an attorney -- and an attorney, regardless of his specialty, can practice in ANY area of the law (a real estate attorney CAN handle a criminal defense case).
If the criminal defense attorney felt comfortable handling a divorce, and wanted to take the case, sure -- he could -- so could a probate attorney, or a real estate attorney, or even a tax or corporate attorney.
If they're licensed to practice law (which all attorneys have to be), they can take a case -- regardless of type . . . if they want to.
Ex Wants Sole Legal Custody?
I Currently Have Joint Legal And Physical Custody Of My Daughter But My Ex Is Asking For Sole Legal Custody.. Could Anyone Tell Me The Advantages For Her And Disadvatages For Me??
DO NOT give her sole legal. The parent having sole legal custody will make the decisions regarding the upbringing of the child and will have the right and the responsibility to make the decisions relating to the health, education, and welfare of a child. If you give up your joint legal right then say good bye to making any major decisions in your daughters life. Joint legal custody is what you have and this means you and your ex can both make decisions regarding your child.
I'm not sure what advantages you'd think you'd get by giving up legal custody. If you're paying child support, you'd still have to pay, that wouldn't change.
Also, never give up your joint physical. I'm not sure if you or your ex is the primary parent, but either way, Joint physical custody allows you to have frequent contact with your daughter. You and your ex both get a significant ammount of time to spend with her. If you give joint physical up, it'll probably be the worst decision you'll ever make. Keep your custody plain and simple! Good luck!
Is Helping Out A Lawyer For Free Considered Community Service?
Is Helping Out A Lawyer For Free Considered Community Service?
not really. that is more of an internship. Community doesn't benefit if you help out that specific lawyer. Volunteering at the food bank, or some kind of public shelter etc... is community service.

Are Dui Laws Out Of Control?
Is It Just Me, Or Do You Think Duis Are Blown Out Of Proportion And Nothing More Than A Revenue Generating Machine For The City And State Governments?
I Drive All The Time At Levels I Know To Be Above .08. I Drive Better Then Because I’M Much More Cognizant Of My Fellow Drivers, Road Conditions And Speed Limits As I Know The Added Consequences Of Not Adhering To Each. As Such, I’Ve Never Been Pulled Over Or Received A Dui For Driving In An Intoxicated State.
Surely There Should Be Some Reasonable Limit At Which There Should Be A Penalty For Driving Above. But, .08 Is Only Equivalent To Having 3 - 4 Beers For A 150 Lb Man. That’S Nothing. Nothing. The Yappy Woman On Her Cell Phone Or Guy With Blaring His Radio Puts His Fellow Drivers In More Danger. Wouldn’T A More Reasonable Limit Be .12 - .15?
Note: I Don’T Give A Good Goddamn About Your “Friend” Killed By A Drunk Driver Any More Than I Care About Some Stupid Kid Who Played With A Gun And Accidentally Killed His Friend When Formulating An Opinion On Gun Laws. Each Represent A Minority. Considering Either Isn’T Away To Arrive A Reasoned, Thoughtful Conclusion.
Yes and no. I don't think that their is anything wrong with the law as it is. However, I have pulled over a number of people above the legal limit, and most of them are those people who had two glasses of wine or two bottles of beer in an hour. Are they drunk? No, not really, but according to the law they are.
The problem with the law that I do not like, is that our judical system, at least here in Indiana, sends most of these men/women to prison with no treatment. I believe that all drug and alcohol abusers should get at least one chance at rehab. These people have problems that prison isn't going to solve, it only delays it. If they violate the conditions of rehab or are re-arrested for drugs or alcohol, then yes, send them to prison. But I believe they should be sent some place first to help them defeat their problem versus just trying to sweep it under the rug.
This is one of the main reasons that our jails/prisons are overcrowded. And who is paying for it, the taxpayer.
What Is A Reasonable Retainer For A Divorce Attorney?
Going Through Divorce Now. I Have A Top Attorney And He Only Wanted $500 Down (At $175/Hr) But My Wife'S Attorney Wants $2500 In Advance (Then $150/Hr). Does This Seem Fishy To Anyone Else?
Possibly your wife's attorney didn't really want the case, so he made the retainer fee high, so she couldn't afford the initial down payment, or he felt she was not a good "credit risk" depending on her employment, so he is trying to get some of his money up front. In your case, your attorney may feel you are more credible and good for the payments. or....your wife's attorney doesn't have that many clients, and needs the instant cash!
