A lot of people do not think about choosing a legal professional right up until they are in desperate need. The legal dilemma could be personal, like family law, for a separation or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust law firm. It may be a criminal case you need to be defended on. Firms need lawyers as well, whether or not they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unfair business tactics. Tax lawyers are also useful when interacting with government issues. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A sizeable, full service law firm has a number of attorneys with unique areas of expertise, so relying on your personal legal issue, you can promptly hold on to the top lawyer or attorney to fulfill your existing need without having to start your search each time you need legal help.It is most effective to find a legal representative you can believe. You need one with a good record, who ishonest, reliable, and wins cases. You want to have trust that they will represent you thoroughly and bill you fairly for their products and services. Sometimes a word of mouth from a friend or business affiliate can be very helpful, having said that you should continue to keep your options open and review all the firms available, simply because when you want legal help, you need it instantly and you would like the very best you can manage to pay for.

How Do I Find A Good Family Law Attorney?
My Ex And I Are Having Issues Over Visitation. He Is Currently In Iraq, But When He Gets Home He Wants To Visit With Our Son, Which Is Fine. Here'S The Catch: He Wants Him For One Week When He Gets Home, One Month In The Summer, And Every Christmas. I Sent Him An Email Telling Him That Since It Has Been Right At 5 Years Since He Has Seen Our Son, He Needs To Make A Few Small Weekend Trips Here So Our Son Can Get To Know Him Personally Not As A Voice On The Phone Once A Month (Our Son Is 6). I Told Him That These Things Needed To Be Eased Into, Since For All Intensive Purposes He Is A Stranger To Our Son.
Also, When I Ask My Son If He Wants To See His Daddy, He Says Yes, But Only If I Can Go With Him Or If His Daddy Comes Here; So I Know My Son Is Feeling Uneasy About This.
I Received An Email Back, Saying I Was Just Trying To Babysit Him And He (My Ex) Didn'T Need A Babysitter. So, I Emailed Him Again Telling Him That Until He Establishes A Trusting Relationship Where Our Son Feels Comfortable With Him I Would Not Let Him Go For Any Amount Of Time.
Let Me Add He Will Reside In Mississippi, And I Live In Indiana, So Its Not Like If My Son Is Having A Hard Time I Can Just Go Pick Him Up; It Is About A 10 Hour Drive.
I Do Not Object To My Son Seeing His Daddy. I Just Think He Needs To Get To Know His Daddy In An Atmosphere He Feels Comfortable In Before Going For A Week Or More Away From Home (And A 10 Hour Drive).
Anywho... So How Do I Find A Good Attorney? How Do I Know If They Are A Good Attorney Or So-So?
Been there, done that sister. this is my advice;
Interview with at least 3 attorneys that practice family law in your area. Write down questions that pertain to your situation and ask them. ask each attorney that, if they were unable to represent you for whatever reason, whom would they recommend? Also, ask them about the law guardians in your area, as your son will need one [you should 'require' one for him]. A law guardian is an attorney appointed by family court to represent your son and his best interest. Remember that he or she is not your attorney, nor your husbands. they will not inform you of a lot of the information that they collect on your sons behalf, so dont let that upset you. You can request a specific law guardian for your son in family court, some judges will grant a request for a specific attorney...mine did. X husband needs to understand that he will have to share ALL holidays. My x and I alternate holidays. I can go on, but I think Ive given the nuts and bolts here. I wish you and your boy all the best!!
I Need Help .Looking For Civil Lawyer.?
Please, I Have A Civil Matter That Involves A Lot Of People And I'M Willing To Expose It All! I Need A Lawyer That Is Willing To Help On A Contingency. There'S A Lot That I Know And A Lot Of Questions Needs To Be Examined.
Nobody can possibly answer your question unless or until you provide more details. Lawyers specialize in one or two areas.
Saying you need a "civil lawyer" is like saying you need a doctor for a specific medical condition. I could give you the name of my family's pediatrician or podiatrist - but this wouldn't do you any good if you are an adult with a heart condition.

Pleaseee, I Need Some Help, I Need To Know What To Expect From My Upcoming Child Custody Case For My Daughter.
A Little History, My Ex-Boyfriend, Who I Never Married Is Taking Me To Court To Have Timesharing And Shared Parental Rights For My Daughter. My Daughter Is 4 Years Old, Barely Knows Her Father As He Is In And Out Of Her Life. At This Time, She Does Not Want To Go With Her Father When I Tell Her She Has To Go Visit Him.

I Am Scared For My Child'S Safety In This Man'S House, And For My Daughter'S Emotional And Psychological Well-Being. He Lives With His Wife And Her Daughter, Not His Daughter.
What Are My Chances In Court??? I Want Him To Have Supervised Visits At First, And Then A Gradual Increase To Ease The Transition When She Spends Full Weekends With Him.
Please Please Give Me Your Best Advice,
its different for everyone. soundos like your going to do ok because of the injunction and the domestic viloence with the new partner if it is on record.
anything not on record will be considered a he she said kind of deal that is how my modification went. its really hard to say. in oregon they are very wierd about very wierd things.
I will tell you this, be honest in everything you say if you are ever caught in alie your done.
I refused to accuse my ex of child molestation so i got fried in court..
as far as visitation goes no way to say either way. if you have the domestic thing on record your good. I have found in my case the courts are very supportive of fathers who expunge their criminal records.
I actually just hired a lawyer today to do a change of circumstance and im a wreck.
I also have no idea what will happen. what scares me is that if a judge is in a bad mood i could lose custody of my son.
my ex got married and took me too court and part of the custody thing is this thing where you go play with your child in front of someone who observes you for like a half hour and decides what kind of parent you are. here you also have to do a class for divorcing parents dont know if you have that where you are.
the whole thing makes no sense and seems to be designed to pretty much oppress women.
the only good advice i could give really is prepare for the worst and hope for the best. wish you the best of luck. hang in there
Getting A Divorce Decree?
I Am 16 Years Old And I Do Not Have A Good Relationship With Either Of My Parents, I Am Trying To Get Ahold Of The Divorce Decree So I Know Who Has Custody Rights And So On. Is There Any Possible Way For Me To Get This And If So Please Explain Asap! Thankyou So Much!
I have to say that despite the fact that you need to be 18 years old to be classed as an adult at 16 the DJ may not have put anything in he divorce papers about you as possibly your parents had privately agreed before going to court..........DJs will only make a judgement if the parents don't and only enter it into the paperwork if the children are young children..................as in the magority of places at 16 ys old you can leave home without permission and as long as you are safe, looking after yourself, eating, school/work then no one can force you back home, including the police, they can ask you but can't force you..........so you may not need to find a copy.........divorce paperwork is a public record, however again depending on the laws in the country you are in with regards to data protection you may not be able to see a copy for a number of years .................unless you ask one of your parents who will both have a copy themselves.
Civil/ Human Rights Attorney?
I'M Currently A Sophmore In High School, But For The Past 3 Or 4 Years, I Have Really Had My Set On Becoming A Civil Rights Attorney. I Am Doing Things To Make That Happen, Such As I Joined The Debate Team, I Am Taking Ap English Courses, And Ap History Courses And When Government Classes Become Available (Junior/Senior Year), I Plan On Taking Those.
I Know That In Order To Become A Lawyer Of Any Sort You Need To Have 4 Years Of Undergraduate Schooling And An Additional 3 Years Of Law School And Then Need To Pass A Written Bar Exam Specific To The State You Want To Work In. My Question Is, In Order To Become A Civil Rights Attorney, What Classes Would I Need To Take In Undergraduate School In Order To Be Successful? Political Science I Assume Is One Of Them...?
As stated before, your undergraduate major is not very important. You want to get into law school. Many apply and a few are accepted.
You will set yourself up for success by having two majors, so that you get a very broad education. Pick one tech major such as chemistry, physics, math, economics (the mathematical kind), nuclear engineering. Then, pick a humanities or social science such as English, Latin, philosophy, history, psychology, or political science.
Those who major in a tech field get higher test scores than those who major in one of the humanities or social sciences. The LSAT, which everyone needs to take, is based on logic, and tech majors find logic to be much simpler than other majors. Grades are important, but the LSAT is more important. If you look at the link I provided below, you will see that the few tech majors who go to law school do better than the thousands of political science majors that apply each year.
If you just major in political science, you aren't much different from everyone else. If you have an unusual major and engage in remarkable and unusual activities, you will stand out and go further. One year at our law school, there was a woman who majored in nuclear engineering. She was offered a full scholarship. She had around a 3.0 gpa and better than average test scores, but it was the rarity of her major that got her the attention. She was interested in civil rights law, but chose to go to a top 50 law school.
If you take 2 years off after undergrad to work in the peace corps, you will dramatically improve your application as well.
If you don't want to do all that, you need to get at least a 150 on your LSAT (average) and a 3.0 undergrad gpa to go to a 4th tier law school. The school might not be the greatest, but you will still be a lawyer.
