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.

Affordable Custody Lawyers?
As My Other Question Stated, My Fiances Ex Told Him Out Of No Where That She Is Moving His Daughter Out Of State, Well We Found Out On Monday That She Moved Without Allowing Us To Say Goodbye Or Anything, We Went To The Police Station And He Told Us We Need A Lawyer, He Said What She Did Was Violating His Rights As A Father, But Without Any Formal Custody Agreement Rather Then A Verbal Agreement (Which Is What They Had, We Have Her 50% Of The Time And The Mom Has Her The Rest Of The Time) Not Much Can Be Done, Now, Custody Lawyers Are Very Expensive, Are There Any Fathers Rights Advocate Groups That Can Help Us Out?
Depends on your income. You may qualify for your states legal aide. Lawyers do pro bono, but they are hard to find. Some colleges have programs where their legal students offer assistance. My advice is that if you cannot find an attorney really quickly file yourselves anyway. This was he will atleast get visitation rights. With no paperwork in place she can move. The paperwork is very self explanitory, and most court houses offer an assistance program in filling them out. Some lawyers will also let you make payments, call around. When my husband got custody of his son we tried calling every father rights group we could find. They gave advice and offered you the option to buy their book, and gave referrals to lawyers. That was all. By the way legally if you can find them he can go take the child back. No one has custody right now. So maybe file for custody, file for a temporary order asking that things not change until custoday is determined, and take the child back.
How Successful Is A No Win No Fee Personal Injury Claim?
I Have Had A Traffic Accident, As A Passenger. My Friend Was Driving A Hired Car. He Lost Control And Hit It Into A Tree. I Got Some Whiplash From The Hit, And My Neck Is Sore. It Was Previously Sore Due To A Sports Injury But Now Is More Sore And Gives Headaches.
So What Size Of Compensation Payout Am I Looking At? I Mean, I'M Not Taking Time Off Work, But Need Physio And Need Painkillers.
Also What Are The Flaws Of No Win No Fee? If I Don'T Win, Don'It I Have To Pay The Opponents Costs?
Also When They Do The Medical Checks To See The Extent Of Pains, Would They Be Able To Attribute The Pains Only To The Accident, Because I Don'T Want Them Minimising The Importance Of The Accident With The Excuse That It Was From An Old Injury?
Does Anyone Have A Similar Experience?
To start with a personal injury lawyer won't take your case, unless he knows you're going to win. He will set up a meeting with you and look at the case.
And yes, the other side will pull up all of your Dr's and hospital records to look for previous injuries. They will definately blame your new injury on the old injury. Trying to prove a new injury is going to be tough for you. If you had broken bones etc, it would make your case alot easier.
My son settled his personal injury claim in the summer. He was hit head-on, on the highway. He had a severley broken femur, and some head, and knee injuries. The lawyers on the other side, pulled up his hospital records from over 10 years ago, and wanted to know why he broke his hand when he was 16. It had absolutely nothing to do with the accident, but these are the kinds of things you can look forward too if you go ahead with a suit.
Also a personal injury lawyer will get 25% of your claim, if you settle quickly. 30% if it goes to discovery, and 33% if it goes to court.
I Really Want To Be A Corporate Lawyer...What Would Be A Good Major In College?
Also Anything Information On Corporate Lawyers Like What Do They Make A Year, Is Alot Of Math Required To Be A Corporate Lawyer And So On. As Much Information Someone Can Give Me Would Be Great!
I am a lawyer (not corporate) and am currently inactive as I no longer need to practice. I went to law school with several students who became corporate lawyers.
To become a corporate lawyer, you must do very well in law school as it is one of the most competitive specialties in hiring. You must compete for and win a place on the best law review (student edited legal journal) at a top-thirty law school after you have been admitted. The earnings start at over $100,000 and become unlimited. Not much math is required. You need to work about 80 hours a week in your first seven years at a law firm in order to become a partner.
The best undergraduate majors for law school are history and English literature as they include the critical reading, thinking and writing skills needed for law school.
Gaza, Israel & International Law?
Will Israel Be Held Responsible By International Law For Killing Civilians, Not Allowing Foreign Aid, Killing Humanitarian Aid Workers, Destroying The Schools The Children Seek Shelter In, And Such. I'M Asking Because The Whole World Is Watching, And Nobody Does A Thing, So What About International Law?
What international laws, Israel violated every sensual law on earth. even the international police (that i think was made to support Israel - See when US VITOs are used) had many decisions that was never taken into consideration by Israel.
>>1- killing civilians, 2-not allowing foreign aid, killing 3-humanitarian aid workers, 4-destroying the schools the children seek shelter in, 5-and such
>>they have not, Hamas on the other hand has
Iviolare, get a life.
>>a country is not going to sit there and not protect itself
that's exactly what Palestinians were trying to do. they've been under siege for two years, no food, no gas, no fuel, no electricity and medical supplies.
>>and then hiding behind civilians purposely.
Come on, Israel is hitting hospitals, schools, universities, mosques, UNRWA offices, Media offices, etc. what do you expect to find there? don't blame Palestinians.
>> Sderot Israel is an occupied Palestinian land :|
>>right of a country to defend its own sovereignty against extremists
Again, and occupying country claims that it is defending itself. none-sense.
>>If Hamas didn't fire 300 missiles into Israel last month this wouldn't have happened would it?
if Israel didn't continue in it's siege, nor killed 6 people to break the ceasefire, maybe it would not.
Question For Lawyers?
Hey! I Was Curious About How Being A Lawyer Worked Because It Interests Me. :)
Here Are A Few Questions Of Mine!
1.) How Much Money Do Lawyers Make On Average? (In Canada Or In The U.S (: )
2.) Somebody Once Told Me You Don'T Get To Pick Who Your Fighting For, Like You Could Get Stuck Defending The Criminal? Is That True? Or Do You Get To Pick Your Cases?
3.) Whats The Best University To Go To, To Become The Best Lawyer You Could Be?
4.) Is Your Life Ever In Danger? Like.. If You Fight Againest The Criminal, And Then He Goes To Jail For Five Years And Gets Out Would He Seek Revenge On You? Has That Ever Happened?
5.) Is Your Job Enjoyable? Or Do You Only Do It For The Money?
6.) How Long Does It Take To Become A Lawyer? How Many Years Of University Do You Need To Do? And How Good Do Your Grades In School Have To Be To Become A Lawyer?
Thank You! Sorry If My Questions Are Stupid :/ I Know Nothing About Lawyers! I'M Just Curious!
1. Earnings depend on a few factors. If you're working in a big Bay Street firm, you're raking it in - close to 6 digits right after getting called to the bar, and really no upper limit, depending on area of practice. Geography and practice areas count for a lot, but I would guess that the majority of lawyers in Canada - once they're well-established - make between $150k and $200k.
2. As for picking who you fight for...that depends, too. If you're generally a prosecutor, nobody's going to force you to defend a criminal. Lawyers usually practice within a given area of law, and in general there's no strict obligation to take any particular file. (Technically, you ought to have a reason to decline a file, but it isn't hard to find a reason.) But economics mean a lot. Declining paying clients isn't a good business practice, in general.
3. In Canada, most law schools are roughly equal.
4. Certain practice areas entail dealing with occasional crazy people. If you're in one of those practice areas, you need to take precautions to protect yourself and your staff. It's not a huge deal, though.
5. Enjoyable? Personally, I love law, and it's hard to imagine doing anything else. Still not sure I'd say I *enjoy* it.
6. In general, in Canada and the U.S., you're looking at 4 years of undergrad and 3 years of law school. In Canada, you don't strictly need the full 4 years of undergrad, but it's becoming increasingly necessary. After graduating law school, you need to pass the bar admissions exam, and in Canada you also have to spend a year or so as an 'articling student'. Grades...depend. You need pretty decent grades, but the number depends on program and what school you want to go to. You also need a good LSAT score.
Craigslist Listings, Legal Advice Sought?
Many Companies Use Craigslist To Advertise On. Example: Let'S Say You Are A Property Management Company And You Rent Apartments. Your Company Manages Many Properties Under Different Names. Many Of Which Advertise On Craigslist. Lets Say One Of Your Properties Is Call Santa Apartments. Now, As A Resident Or Ex Employee Of Santa Apartments, I Am Aware That Santa Has A Serious Bed Bug, And Roach Problem In The Apartments. As An Individual I To Can List Advertisments On Craigslist. Am I Allowed To Create A Posting Warning People That Santa Has Bed Bugs And Pest Control Issues? Does Freedom Of Speech Protect Me? Let'S Assume For The Sake Of Argument, That Santa Apartments Is Well Documented As Being Pest Infested. Am I Infringing On Any Rights Of Santa Apartments? Am I Putting Myself Open To Any Legal Action From Santa Apartments?
Thanks In Advance For Any Help.
Freedom of Speech will not protect you, as it does not make slander legal nor does it give you any rights to violate anyone elses rights. Unless you own craigslist you can not use it for your Free Speech.
That aside, yes, you are opening yourself up to civil and possible criminal liability. We all know that craigslists will identify you to the police if you break any laws.
You had better have some serious proof not only of an infestation but that the apartment did not comply to Health department orders.
If they suffer any loss (say a vacancy) they can come after you for that money.
If you are an expemployee they can come at you with a criminal charge is any of this is things that you knew about while under their employ.
