What Do Lawyers Do??
I Really Want To Know What I Want To Be When I Grow Up. I Really Want To Be A Lawyer Cuz It Sounds Cool Defending People And They Make Alot Of Money.
But What Exactly Do Lawyers Do?
What Do They Have To Know?
"What Do Lawyers Do And Where Do They Do It?
All lawyers are not alike. And contrary to the images we see in the movies and on TV, they certainly are not all running to trial every week to win a new case. Lawyers work in various capacities (legal and non-legal) and often specialize in particular areas. The following addresses the more traditional career paths taken by lawyers.
Many lawyers eventually specialize in a particular area. Lawyers may specialize in trial law (civil or criminal), appellate law (helping clients who seek to reverse or to uphold lower court decisions), bankruptcy law, trusts and estates, tax law, corporate law, environmental law, intellectual property, communication law, elder law, employment and labor law, entertainment law, health care law, education law, international law, etc. The list of specializations is almost endless and is always changing in response to new laws and novel legal issues. Moreover, it is not uncommon for a lawyer to launch a career as one type of lawyer and wind up practicing in a different area.
Lawyers not only have a wide variety of specializations from which to choose, they also work in a variety of settings. Some of the most common legal work settings are described below.
The majority of lawyers work in private practice. Some work as solo practitioners, others in small or "boutique" law firms. Many work in firms that have several hundred lawyers in cities across the world. Lawyers usually join firms as "associates" and work toward becoming "partners." The road to partnership is long and full of hurdles. In recent years it has become increasingly common for associates to join a law firm with the expectation that they will gain experience for a number of years but not stick around for a partnership decision. To retain more lawyers, some law firms now allow for "non-equity partnerships" or promote a few attorneys to non-partnership "of counsel" or "special counsel" positions. Life at a law firm, especially a large law firm, is influenced by "billable hours." Each lawyer has a "billable rate" that is used to charge clients for time spent on client matters. In order to bill clients and to get credit for work performed, firm lawyers keep track of the activities they perform each day. Sometimes lawyers record their activities in increments of time as short as six minutes.
Other attorneys are employed by a single client and work "in-house" for that client, usually a large corporation. An in-house attorney advises the company on legal activities related to the company's business. Large companies often have correspondingly large legal departments and a number of in-house attorneys who specialize in specific issues. For example, one might supervise litigation being handled by an outside firm, another might address the company's employment issues, and a third might work as a lobbyist who monitors and tries to influence legislation related to the company's business. Traditionally, many in-house attorneys obtain their positions when they are working in a law firm and are asked by a client to join the company. In-house lawyers often report that they enjoy greater control over their time than their law firm counterparts. Also, because in-house lawyers represent one client, they are not beholden to the "billable hour."
Most government lawyers work at the local level, but state governments and the federal government also hire lawyers to perform a multitude of tasks. Government lawyers include prosecutors (district attorneys, State Attorney Generals, and federal prosecutors who work at the Department of Justice here in D.C. and at U.S. Attorney's Offices throughout the country) and public defenders (who represent those who cannot afford an attorney). Lawyers also work for the Environmental Protection Agency, the Office of Homeland Security, the Security Exchange Commission, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Patent and Trademark Office, and just about every other government agency that you can name. In addition, state legislative bodies and the United States Congress offer many exciting opportunities for lawyers to develop and help pass legislation.
Judicial clerks are a subset of government lawyers, but warrant separate mention. Judicial clerks research and draft memoranda and opinions for judges. Often, these intellectually stimulating and prestigious positions are short term. Frequently, recent law graduates will spend a year or two clerking before embarking on their legal careers. There are, however, some "permanent clerk" positions that allow for long-term employment.
Many public interest lawyers work for legal-aid societies, which are private, non-profit agencies designed to serve disadvantaged people. These lawyers might seek medical benefits for AIDS patients, represent the poor in landlord-tenant disagreements, or negotiate child visitation rights for individuals who cannot afford private attorneys. Other public interest lawyers work for non-profit organizations that seek to change the law. Lawyers might strive to strengthen environmental laws, to protect the rights of children in foster care, to promote civil rights of gays and lesbians, or to advocate for racial and religious tolerance. Public interest lawyers work on both the "left" and the "right". Some work to abolish abortion, while others work to strengthen abortion rights; some promote "victim's rights" and advocate in favor of the death penalty, while others strive to abolish the death penalty. Non-profit organizations often struggle for funding. As a result, many are willing to provide (non-paying) internships to interested college students. Even after law school, public interest lawyer positions are not high paying. But because they offer other rewards, these positions are often highly competitive.
Lawyers teach in law schools, colleges, and at other educational levels. Many lawyers who hope to become professors first gain teaching experience by working as an adjunct professor and teaching one course while working elsewhere full time. Practicing lawyers who want to teach also often look for publishing opportunities."

Whats The Best Course Of Action If I Got Pull Over And Got Charged With A Dui Even Thou I Blew A .077 On The Breathalizer.
What does the blood test say?
That's what they go by. Breathalizer just gets you in their car. They can still haul you in if it's under the limit.
If the blood test jives with the breathalizer, talk to the DA yourself and work it out. Sometimes they won't talk to you, but they won't try a case they can't win unless you are a menace.
Try to save yourself some money first. A lawyer will cost $500 min for this.
Legal Question For An Real Estate Lawyer In Oregon.?
Two People In A 4 Year Relationship Buy A House 2 Years Ago. Now The Relationship Is Ending And The Guy Won'T Leave The House Or Agree To Get Bought Out. Girl Is Out Of The House And He Rented Out Her Room Without Permission. Money Is Tight And Legal Aid Isn'T An Option. She Has A Full Time Job. He Doesn'T. He Has Free Legal Representation. She Is Devastated By This Event! She Is Afraid She Won'T Get Him Out Of The House And Then Lose Everything In Court Later. They Both Have Their Names On The Deed Etc. As A Parent, What Can We Do To Help Her Get This Mess Settled? I Appreciate Any Advise..Thanks
I can give you general advice. I would first like to know a couple questions. One, what financial contributions did each purchaser make towards the purchase of the house. Second, who is on the mortgage/loan and who actually makes mortgage payments, and are they current. How much is the house worth and how much is the current mortgage?
Ignoring that. I can make a few comments. Since she is on the deed she has the right to live in the house, she sounds like she does not want to. She has to determine what she wants. Does she want to keep the house? Does she want to try and get money for her value in the property? If she bought two years ago, that was near the top of the real estate market and she may have no equity. Again, you need to answer the questions in paragraph 1. Also, she may want to just be off the loan so it will not hurt her credit.
I would also like to know source of his free legal help. Most peole get legal aid for divorce, evictions, bankruptcy, etc. Not for diputes between homeowners.
Without more a few things. Since he is on the deed you cannot evict him from the house. If he will not budge or be cooperative that is a tough one. One possible solution is for you daughter to be refinanced off of the loan but you will needs bf co-operation. The real solution if all else fails is filing for a partition.
A partition action is when two owners cannot agree on whether to sell a place, and you need to seperate ownership you file a lawsuit with the approprate court for a suit to partition. It is a long, costly, lawyer fest but this is the only solution in cetain cases when parties cannot work it out between themselves.
So basically a partition action needs to be filed against bf. No Legal Zoom kits for that.

This stuff takes time..and you are likely not his only case. Be patient. DO NOT CONTACT the insurance co yourself, as you may mistakenly undo what the lawyer has progressed on.
If the lawyer is handling this directly with the insurance agency, I can think of no place that you can get this information, unless you can the lawyer and obtain your file.
If the lawyer has filed a claim in the court system on your behalf you can go down to the court house and view the file to see what has transpired.
Until you sign a release in favour of the insurance company stating you are taking X amount of dollars in full and final settlement, the insurance agency won't cough up anything, so hopefully you have not signed one.
There are laws strictly limiting what lawyers can and cannot do with client's monies so he would be a very brazen and stupid lawyer to take your money.
If you are REALLY concerned that he has done so, contact your local bar association or law society and file a complaint.
Type Of Lawyer? Well Paid? Corporate Or Patenet? Please Answer! 10 Points!?
I Want To Be A Lawyer. I Am Absolutely Positive About It And I Will Succeed, I’M Sure Of It. Not Because I’M Cocky But Mainly Because I Have A Very Strong Motivator And A Strong Drive And I Know I Can Do This. I Have Grown Up In A Environment Where Work Isn’T Fun. None Of That “Follow Your Dreams” Crap. You Do The Work To Get A Paycheck. It’S All About Your Family And Providing Them The Best You Possibly Can. So I Decided I Wanted To Either Do Corporate Law Or Patent Law. Both Make A Really Nice Amount Of Money. My Goal Is To Graduate From University Of Georgia With A B. Undergrad Degree And Then Get Into An Ivy League School (Columbia Or Harvard Or Yale- Those Are My 3 Choices But Cornell Is Good Too I Guess.). Which Lawyer Gets Paid More? Anyone Know? And If I Were To Become A Corporate Lawyer, Would It Be Better To Work For A Private Firm Or An Actual Corporation? Please Respond Back And I Would Honestly Love, Love, Love It If You Don’T Leave Answers Saying How Cruel And Horrible Lawyers Are. I Want To Be One, End Of Story. Get Over It. I Don’T Care How Slimy, Insensitive I Am. As A Girl, If It Helps Me Provide For My Family Properly, I Will Do It.
If you work for a large corporate law firm (for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_100_largest_law_firms), you will likely make $160,000 as a first year associate in a NY or LA office, regardless of whether you are a corporate or patent lawyer.
If you are a patent lawyer, you would need to pass two bars to practice patent law, the state bar and the patent bar. Most patent lawyers I know have a background in science or engineering.
Because at the start of your career as a lawyer, the differences in salary between the two types of law practices are negligible, I would choose whichever law you are more interested in. Are you at good at science and engineering? Then major in a hard science (chemistry, physics, bio) and go into patent law. If you are interested in businesses, then go into corporate law.
If you were to be a corporate lawyer, you should work for a private law firm. You can't get a job in-house at a corporation without actual job experience at a big law firm.
