Finding A Skilled Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will recognize that there are many lawyers in your town that advertise that they can specialize in your sort of case. This could make the process of finding one with a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the tips below it will be possible to restrict your search to the right one out of almost no time. Step one is to make a list of the lawyers that happen to be listed in your area that specialize in your needs. When you are making this list you ought to only include those that you have a good vibe about based upon their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down if you take a while evaluating their webpage. There you should be able to find the number of years they have been practicing plus some general information about their success rates. At this stage your list should have shrunken further to the people which you felt had professional websites and an appropriate amount of experience. You must then spend some time to search for independent reviews of every attorney. Be sure you read the reviews rather than relying upon their overall rating. The info within the reviews will give you a sense of the way they connect with their customers and how much time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, you will need to talk with a minimum of the very last three lawyers which have the credentials you are searching for. This will provide you with enough time to genuinely evaluate how interested they can be in representing your case. It can be imperative that you follow every one of these steps to actually find someone that has the right amount of experience to get you the best possible outcome.

Can The Yankees Really File Criminal Charges For This Http://Sports.Yahoo.Com/Mlb/News?Slug=Ap-Yankees-Cursefo
What Would The Criminal Charges Be?
I can't think of any criminal charges that would apply to this, but then again, I'm not a lawyer who spends their life trying to rob people of every last cent they've got. I personally think that since it was the Yankoff management who decided to pay someone to jackhammer some brand new concrete (and then do a photo shoot where some goon from management waved it around over his head like he'd been slaving away trying to "remove the curse", after the WORKERS worked on it for 5 hours were pushed out of the way), that it's on them, and not the guy who put it there. It wasn't like he put something in there that would cause the structure to collapse or anything like that. Face it, the Yankee organization is a bunch of worthless halfwits and jackazzes. They BUY talent, but there's no HEART in it. For that reason, I will ALWAYS cheer whoever is playing the Yankees. And I'll gladly contribute to a legal defense fund for the worker in question to protect him from the obnoxious dirtbags. Steinbrenner and all his minions SUCK.
According To Virginia Law, How Long Must You Be Married To Recieve Spousal Support?
My Fiance Was Married For One Month To This Chick Before He Went Out To Sea (Navy Man), When He Returned 6 Months Later She Was Pregnant And Admitted To Cheating On Him While He Was At Sea. So He Left Her (June 06) But After The Child Was Born (And He Was There For The Birth) He Signed The Birth Certificate And Has Been Giving Her $500 A Month In Child Support To Help Her Out. She Has Not Had A Job Since They Were Married (Early 2006) And She Has Lived Off This $500 And Stayed With Her Grandparents Since Then. Well She Agreed To Everything In The Divorce, But Before His Papers Got To Her She Filed Her Own (With No Lawyer) And Is Demanding Spousal Support ($500) Plus Child Support ($500)! They Only Lived Together For One Month. Can She Do This? She Is So Smart That She Put Medicaid As One Of The Things She Pays For For The Baby. Clue Me Into That One *Slap Upside The Head*.....Anyway, Do You Think She Can Get The Spousal And Child Support With Such A Short Time Together?
There are many factors regarding spousal support awards. In Virginia, adultery is an automatic bar to support. He will have to prove the adultery; even if she has admitted it to him, she may not admit it to anyone else. If it's proven, she will be unable to get a spousal support award in Virginia UNLESS the court considers the husband's adultery also (which he is committing with you, if he and his wife are still legally married), making that a harder road to climb . The fact that you only lived with her one month is not the length of the marriage; the length of the marriage, to the court, is from the wedding day to the day one or both of you left the marriage and intended it to be permanent.
He needs to: 1) get a paternity test. This is critcal to occur before any court orders him to pay support, because once a Court finds him to be responsible and enters an order of support, even if DNA ruled him out as the father later, the court will not reverse the finding of responsibility and he'll be stuck for 18 years (unless the real father steps up and agrees to take financial responsibility). If the mother has already filed petitions to get support, and you have a hearing scheduled, you must petition the court ASAP to order DNA testing, done through the Health Department; the court could then postpone any finding of support or paternity until the results are back.
2) The issue of her getting spousal support will be decided after the judge considers the length of the marriage, both parties' employment history and wage earning ability (what was her job before she quit? Would she be able to support herself with the addition of child support?; What are her expenses? Does the child have any special needs?). The court may also consider for spousal support issues her physical condition, any agreements between the parties about letting Mom be a stay-at-home mother, both parties' income and expenses, etc.
3) Child Support in virginia is calculated using a formula set by the legislature. You can even find it online and it will calculate what support you should be paying. Look for something like "child support calculations Virginia". That is the amount you should be paying and if you are now paying more than required, you might want to stop before you do it so long the court is convinced it is no hardship for you and then you could be stuck with paying the higher amount.
You do not need an attorney in juvenile court; just go file petitions of your own, including the request for a DNA test, custody determination, and support. Go to the courthouse and they'll be able to get you started. The forms are pre-printed; you just have to fill them out and probably meet with an intake officer for an interview.
What Are The Pros And Cons Of Being A Corporate Or International Lawyer?
I'Ve Been Thinking About What I Want To Do Later In Life And Law Seems Like A Good Profession To Get Into. I Am Only 14 And I Know I Have Time To Make A Decision But I Want To Decide Now So That I Can Plan Ahead For The Life I'Ll Lead. I'D Like To Know The Pros And Cons Of Being Either A Corporate Or International Lawyer. Also, Is There Anything That I Can Do Now To Prepare Me For Law School? Thanks In Advance =]
I commend you for thinking ahead.
Warning! Jobs in the field of Law are drying up FAST!! This is not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING vocational field. Many reasons. THE main reason?......We simply have WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals - we have a GLUT!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
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, 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. 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 SATURATED with WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. AND the schools continue to recruit and churn out even MORE Legal Professionals.............
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.
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 200 law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients."
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the field of HEALTHCARE! <THIS is where the jobs are! and scholarships!

Do I Need To Cfontact The Ca State Bar For A Refund From My Family Law Attorney'S Office?
1. They Switched Attorney'S Handling My Case And The Only Way I Found Out Was Because I Overheard The Children'S Attorney Talking About It With My Ex Husband'S Attorney In The Lobby Outside The Courtroom.
2. I Went To A Scheduled Appointment Last Thursday At 4Pm And Left At 5Pm....Never Seen By The Attorney As She Was With Another Client And Apparently Did Not Know/Care That Another Scheduled Appointment Was There. Maybe She Could Have Came Out Andd Asked To Reschedule? She Did Not.
3. I Asked To Be Rescheduled When I Could Be The First Person She Sees Of The Day As I Cannot Afford To Take Time Off Work Again And Wait For Nothing,....I Have Not Heard From Them.
4. My Ex Was Ordered To Pay The Children'S Attorney By The End Of May Of This Year. He Has Not As Of Today And When We Went To Court On The 10Th Of June, His Attorney Assured Everyone That He Would Pay And She Agreed To Give Him More Time. No One Gave Me Any Fuking Thing Ever And It Sucks That I Have To Be The Responsible Broke One All The Dam Time. And When I Was 2 Weeks Late Paying My Attorney Because Of A Family Emergency They Threatened To Drop My Case.
If Hindsight Were 20/20...I Would Have Let Them. But I Paid As Agreed. They Are Not Holding Up To Their Responsibility.
No. You can file an ethics complaint for the firm's treatment of you but the only way to get your money back is to sue the firm.
Practicing Law But Not Being A Trial Lawyer?
I'M Interested In Attending Law School And Practicing Law But I Do Not Think I Would Be Comfortable Being A Trial Lawyer. Can Anyone Tell Me Another Kind Of Lawyer That I Can Be Besides A Trial Lawyer? I Know That There Are Lawyers That Just Give Legal Advice And Stuff Like That Without Every Being Involved In Trials But I Don'T Know What They'Re Called So It'S Hard To Research.
If Anyone Can Help I'D Appreciate It! Thanks!
If you do not want to litigate, you can practice transactional law. Transactional law is a general term for many things including estate planning, business planning, and drafting and analyzing contracts. There are many more examples, but these are the first three that come to mind. Even if you do not want to litigate, I suggest you try to get some experience while you are in law school (trial advocacy, internship, clinic, etc.). Litigation skills are important for all attorneys, and with practice you will become more confident. Best of luck to you!
Do I Need Legal Help?
My Father Recently Passed Away And He Didn'T Have Much To His Name But A Car And 2 Storage Units. I'M Trying To Get Access To The Storage Units But The Owner Is Saying I Need Some Form Of Documentation That Says I Will Receive All Assets That Were In His Name. Where Do I Go To Get A Form Like That? Or Does Such A Form Even Exist?
It would be good if your father left a will. But in the absence of a will, whether you need legal help depends on what's in those storage units and how much legal fees will amount to. Also, is your mother still around? If so, it would help if she went to see the owner. Tell him that the longer the stuff remains there, the more rent he's losing cos if he isn't going to give you the stuff, then he shouldn't be accepting money from you being rent owed by your dad. It works both ways. The sooner he releases the stuff to you, the sooner he can rent the space to another party. Perhaps all he needs is your indemnity to say that you will be responsible for all consequences thereafter. What if someone else sues the guy, saying he released the stuff wrongly to you and your dad wanted him/her to have them? I can see why the owner needs to protect himself too.
I'm sorry for your loss. I wish you strength and peace above all.
