Here are three important strategies to realize that you've hired the correct lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Sort Of Case What the law states is often tricky which requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you really need an attorney, search for one who deals with the matter you're facing. Even when a family member or friend recommends you employ a company they know, should they don't use a focus that's similar to your case, keep looking. Once your attorney is surely an expert, especially in the problem you're facing, you understand you've hired the right choice. 2. The Lawyer Includes A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it might be tough to win a case, particularly if the team helping you has minimal to no experience. Seek out practices which may have won numerous cases that apply to yours. Even though this is no guarantee which you case will probably be won, it will give you a significantly better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond When the attorney you've chosen takes time to listen to your concerns and reply to your inquiries, you've probably hired the best one. No matter how busy these are or how small your concerns seem using their perspective, it's critical that they react to you in a caring and timely manner. From the aim of look at a common citizen who isn't informed about the judicial system, court cases could be pretty scary you need updates as well as seem like you're portion of the solution. Some attorneys are just considerably better to your case than others.

Free Legal Aid In Dfw Area For Criminal Case Outside Of Texas? Does Anyone Know Why I Can Look For This Help?
For Probation Violation. Please Help
Where legal aid services are concerned, it can actually cover a wide variety of categories. In short, legal aid services are alike to free counseling and representation in court. To be able to find a firm, which is capable of providing all forms of legal aid services, will be easier said than done due to the enormity of such services. In most situations, firms and lawyers will most likely only specialize either on a single or a certain group of categories of legal service. This is a very important fact to bear in mind. One would not want to waste time and money on a lawyer who is not specializing in the particular field of legal service one would like to engage in.

Can Any1 Briefly Explain This Sentence And Its Purpose?
Does Private Litigation Serve Any Useful Purpose In The Field Of Environmental Law? Or Should A System Of No-Fault Insurance Be Instituted And Environmental Control Be Left Entirely To Government?
I don't believe the first responder really got the gist of this in it's entirety. Private litigation is when private citizens (like you or I) sue each other, as opposed to public (governmental) litigation and commercial (businesses) litigation. So, pretend you and I are neighbors, and I drive a hummer and you drive a prius. Obv my car is contributing to pollution and such....and possibly global warming, etc. Would there be any useful purposes for you to take me, a private citzen, to court, and sue me for damaging the environment?? Or should we leave it to governmental bodies who will say that private citizens are NOT at fault for any environmental damage, but instead laws, rules and regulations must be put into place going forward, to ensure that we stop the bad we are doing now and instill preventitive measures?
My response would be no, there is no use for private litigation. Because after all, we ALL have done things, used products, etc. that have contributed to environmental harm. So first of all, we are all guilty; it would be hypocritical for one private citizen to sue another. Like Jesus said in the bible (just using this as an example!) when the townspeople wanted to stone the adultress, "Let he who is sinless cast the first stone". And no one could stone the woman because THEY were all guilty of "crimes" also. Secondly, the cause of environmental damage was widely unknown until recently, so the individual cannot be blamed for the products, services, and lifestyle habits that he/she has acquired during the time when he/she thought it was safe. But now that we have this information, it is up to the government to instill laws, rules and regulations to prevent further damage, to educate the people, and to change our ways. So the governement, for example, is changing the car emissions laws,etc. Thirdly, if my hummer is damaging the environment, it's not just hurting my neighbor, but the whole world! So why should only my neighbor collect damages?? That money should go to a public organization that benefits the whole town/city/world in helping to "fix" the problem my car is contributing to.
Even 10, 20, 50 years into the future, the government should be the body who indicts private citizens for any violations, and the damages should go to public organizations that benefits the whole, not just one individual. Individuals should not be suing other individuals for any environmental law violations.

Previous poster "kapn" is right on target - again.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing; it is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first.
Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software and law books in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law: *myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), *myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), *myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise), *myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), *myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (>>I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

Are There Any Free Legal Consultations Online Or By Phone?
I Live In The Los Angeles Area. Are There Any Free Legal Consultations Online Or By Phone? My Apartment Recently Caught On Fire And The Insurance Company Is Asking My Family For Money Through A Debt Collector. I Need Some Legal Consultation On This Matter. Please Provide As Much Info As Possible, Thank You.
As an attorney, I am not comfortable giving advice over the telephone or online. It creates real issues about whether you and the attorney have formed an attorney client relationship. Additionally, the attorney would be ill-advised to form such a relatonship with someone that they were not consulting with in person.
You will be able to make a better assessment of whether or not you want to actually hire an attorney when you have a face-to-face as well.
Not saying some attorney won't do it, but I would be skeptical in doing so. Take all your records and the debt collection notice to an attorney for an initial consultation. Some will make the inital consultation free.
Much Much Does An Attorney Charge For A Dwi Case?
The Case Is In Jersey, I Haven'T Had Any Priors, I Passed The Breathaliser Test At The Station (Under0.8%) I Had A 0.6%. Only Other Ticket Is Careless Driving.
You should be able to find an attorney that doesn't charge for the initial consultation. After that, it can vary greatly depending on the circumstances.
Generally, the more work he puts into your case, the more you get charged.
Could One Of You Recommend A Good Brain Injury Lawyer?
I'D Like To Keep The Details Private...
Well, if the question is simply where can you find a good brain injury lawyer, I would say look online or for a medical malpractice attorney. I haven't heard of the Brain Injury Association, but it sounds like a group of loosely affiliated trial attorneys. Start local, but there are some good resources available online as well.
