A lot of men and women do not think about choosing a lawyer till they are in desperate need. The legal dilemma may possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce proceedings or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust legal professional. It may be a criminal situation you want to be defended on. Firms require lawyers as well, no matter whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unjustified business tactics. Tax law firms are also helpful any time dealing with government issues. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A sizeable, full service law firm has a number of legal representatives with unique areas of abilities, so based upon on your own personal legal issue, you can immediately retain the perfect attorney to match your existing need without having to start your search each time you need legal assistance.It is best to locate a legal representative you can have confidence in. You really want one with a very good track record, who issincere, reliable, and wins cases. You need to have confidence that they will defend you effectively and bill you reasonably for their products and services. Sometimes a word of mouth from a good friend or business associate can be practical, having said that you should hold your options open and evaluate all the firms available, due to the fact when you require legal support, you need it instantly and you really want the very best you can pay for.

How Do You Find The Best Lawyer For Your Case?
Where Do You Look, Ask, Etc.?
That's the best question I've seen in a long time, but the answer isn't pleasant. There is no easy way, and the game is rigged to keep it that way.
There are no "consumer reports" on lawyers or doctors, and their professional associations fight to keep it that way. You must rely on word-of-mouth, ridiculous advertisements, and time spent doing things the hard way. You didn't mention civil or criminal, and there are some differences.
Lawyers are kind of like employees, and if you have the time and means, you should "interview" several of them to see if they pass your requirements. Many states have guidelines concerning this: a lawyer may be required to provide a free consultation (usually 1/2 hour) to meet with you and you tell him what you want and he tells you about himself.
If it's a criminal case, then you want to know specific things: is he qualified to appear in the court hearing your case, has he handled similar cases to yours, and did he win or lose. These are all public records, but they are somewhat hard to find and hard to understand by yourself. Your best bet may be to (get this) hire a lawyer or at least a paralegal to do this research for you. They have access to the databases containing the records, and they understand what they are looking for.
Finally, bear in mind that most lawyers are not completely corrupt. They usually will tell you if they feel it might not be a good fit, or they think someone else might have a better chance of helping you.
What Do I Say?I Have To Meet An Influential Lady Tomorrow To Help Find A Job,Or Internship At A Law Firm?
I Am Broke, And I Don'T Know If I Should Be Looking For A Job, A Part Time Job Or Just For An Internship Since Am A Law Student.What Do I Do?She'S A Former First Lady Of Ghana.
As a law student, your primary duty is to your education. So, you do not want to do any work which will infringe on the major time needed to study. The very, very best job for a law student is with a law firm. That way you can actually see what you are studying in real life.
As for the decision of the type of work. You may not be able to do justice in your education if you work full time. Unless the full time is only during the summer break. If you work for a law firm, you may want to work on a part-time or per hour basis. Offering to work part-time/per hour whenever the firm needed you, on their call, may be helpful to the law firm who needs someone but not on a regular basis.
While internships for law students are great, remember they pay nothing. So you need to decide if you can afford to work for free.
What you should say to the First Lady of Ghana is "I am honored to meet you". Do not expect her to be able to find you a job, she may only be able to get you an initial interview. Be grateful for whatever she offers. If she does get you in, remember the thank you note and that your work will reflect of your mentor. Good luck.
Family Court Lawyer Out There? Need Advice Desperately!!?
In Desperate Need Of Help!!! My Husband And I Just Got A Call From My Stepson (My Husbands Son)’ S School. Apparently Our Son’S “Birth” Mother Went To The School And Allowed Him To Get Signed Out Of High School So That He Can Go To Night School. We Went To See The Principal This Morning And He Let Him Back Into The School. He Is Failing And Played Hooky For 24 Days. We Now Have To Go To Hearing Through The Board Of Ed To Find Out If He Will Be Left Back. We Will Do What We Have To Do But Long Story Short. Our Child’S Birth Mother Had No Right To Sign Him Out Of School. Our Son’S Primary Residence Is With Us Not Her!! Legally What Can We Do? My Husband Is So Upset. We Want To Call Her And Tell Her We Will No Longer Be Sending The Kids To See Her On Wednesdays Any Longer. If We Do This, Is That Considered Kidnapping? Legally We Don’T Want To Get In Any Trouble But We Have Had Enough! What Would Happen If We Refuse Her The Visitations?
Thank You So Much For Any Help And Advice!!!
Ok, First I completely agree with you that she had no right to sign him out school like that, but, and I know you don't want to hear this, as his birth mother, the law says she has every right to do that if she so chooses provided you and she have joint or shared custody of him.
As for not wanting to send your kids to see her on Wednesday's anymore, you have every right to do that, however, if you choose to do so, she will have the right to take you to court and sue you for custody and or visitation rights with any children that are biologically hers.
(NOTE: If they are not biologically her children and/or she has never been granted any form of legal custody of them, then she has no legal claim to them and there is nothing she can do )
If they are biologically hers, then she does have legal claim to them and you will have to officially inform her that your children will no longer be visiting her and if she wants to see them you will have to meet in court.
Your husband will also need to sue her for full custody if he wishes to keep her children away from her, if they are her biological children and she wants to be in their lives, she has every right to be and I'm sure she'll fight you in court for either full or joint custody.
I suggest, if you can afford it you hire a lawyer to help you get through all of this. Make sure you have a judge certified copy of the custody agreement of all involved children as well.
I also strongly suggest you think long and hard before you do anything, as your stepson may react very badly if you tell him you don't want him to see his mother.
Maybe you and she and your husband could all sit down to dinner and try and sort through everything, and establish some boundaries and some ground rules in order to avoid the messiness of a custody battle.
Once the children are over 18 it will be their decision as to whether or not they want her in their life.
I wish you the best of luck
Compare And Contrast Criminal Law And Civil Law?
What'S The Difference...
Criminal law centers around a crime being committed. A criminal is charged with committing a crime against the state. District Attorney usually prosecutes the case and the defense can be handled by either a private attorney or a public defender.
Civil law deals with personal injury, divorce, name changes, incorporation, bankruptcy, and other issues where a crime may not have been at issue. Both sides of the case should be represented by private attorneys.
I Hired A Traffic Attorney, But To My Surprise It Is Costing Me Way More Than It Would To Just Pay The Fine?
I Thought A Traffic Attorney Would Plead My Case For Me. All-In-All It Is Costing Me A Close To 500 Dollars, On A 129. Ticket.
I'M Supposed To Pay For Defensive Driving For A Failure To Yield Ticket.
So Because I Wanted To See This In Attorney In Action For Myself-- Just To See If He Was Actually Working In My Favor. Mind You, I Never Met Nor Spoke With Him. I Only Spoke With His Secretaries.
So I Show Up To My Scheduled Court Date, And A Woman Asks Is Anyone Here For Attorney So And So.
I Said Yes. She Said What Is Your Name And I Told Her. The She Says You Are Free To Go Because Your Attorney Will Try To Get Your Court Date Postponed.
So I Called To The Court To See What Exactly Transpired And They Told Me They Were Not Allowed To Discuss Anything With Me. I Have To Ask My Attorney.
This Seems Like A Gimmick
All Money Goes Through My Attorney'S Office
You need to speak to your attorney.
But yes, the cost of an attorney is almost always more expensive than the INITIAL cost of a ticket.
When calculating the value of the attorney, you should also consider court cost (depends on your county, ask the clerk at traffic court and they can tell you the actual court cost for your case), the cost of any classes required by the court, the cost of future insurance if you do not beat the ticket, etc, etc.
In the long run, the lawyer usually costs less than the TOTAL cost of the ticket.
