3 Methods To Know You've Picked The Proper Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to undergo the legal court system, particularly if lack confidence inside your legal team. Allow me to share three important methods to understand that you've hired the correct lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Type Of Case Legal requirements is usually tricky and this requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you need a legal representative, seek out one that handles the challenge you're facing. Even though a relative or friend recommends you make use of a good they understand, should they don't have got a focus that's similar to your case, keep looking. When your attorney is an expert, specifically in the difficulty you're facing, you understand you've hired the right one. 2. The Lawyer Has A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it can be challenging to win a case, especially if the team helping you has hardly any experience. Try to find practices that have won numerous cases that pertain to yours. While this is no guarantee that you simply case will probably be won, it will give you a better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In the event the attorney you've chosen takes enough time to hear your concerns and respond to your inquiries, you've probably hired the right one. Irrespective of how busy they may be or how small your concerns seem off their perspective, it's crucial that they react to you in the caring and timely manner. From the point of view of a common citizen who isn't familiar with the judicial system, court cases can be pretty scary you want updates and to seem like you're part of the solution. Some attorneys are simply just considerably better to you and your case than the others. Make sure you've hired the most suitable team for your circumstances, to actually can place the matter behind you as soon as possible. Faith with your legal representative is the first step to winning any case.

Should My Son Be Looking For A New Lawyer?
My Son And His Wife Divorced In Florida 4 Years Ago. She Moved Back To Rochester Ny. This Spring My Son Took A Demotion And Paycut To Be Transfered Back To Rochester To Be Closer To His Kids. His Lawyer Says He Doesn't Think He Can Get Him A Reduction In Child Support Because It Was His Choice To Take The Paycut. That Seems To Have No Logic To It.
Additionally His Lawyer Has Told His Girlfriend She Should Think Twice About Marrying Him Because His Ex Could Then Go After Her Assets.
None Of This Makes Sense To Me.
Yes your son needs a new lawyer. (Codes are diff for each state in custody and child support matters so research that states codes and talk to a department of human services professional they know a lot)
Unless your son was present with his girlfriend your lawyer can not disclose information involving an open case.
if your son gets married but has JOINT physical custody of the child his new wifes income will matter just as hers would if she were to get married.
If he has visitation rights his new wifes income wont matter.
If affordibility to live has gone up but your son's pay has gone down it's called a drastic economical change in support... I'll break it down. If your son lived elsewhere and his living expenses where 60% of his gross income and he paid 20% to child support but then he moved with the job and his living expenses went to 90% of his gross income (same income in both places) he wouldn't be able to keep paying the 20% child support so you file a change in Living expenses aka. Economical change in support.
With any child support you should be able to calculate your living expenses and you child support and if it's more than you make in gross income than it's too high.
If you have a gross pay change for any reason child support can be changed. Stipulations are different in diff states. In Iowa (where I'm from) Support can only be disputed every 2 years no matter what and they base support from the prior years taxes.
Even if a child support payment is set by a child support recovery unit you can change the amount by going to court. You just have to have a good argument and a lot of the time people don't want to go to court so her lawyer will prob. settle for an amount. Be smart about it though... he has to take care of himself and his son so he needs enuf money for himself to do so and since he doesn't live with him full time it costs her more to take care of their son so be very fair.
PS my Fiance after all the ins coverage (medical, dental, vision, ortho, life, disb. etc) taxes and support brings home 240 a week. she used to get 480 a month and it was killing him... during the custody hearing we opted to change it to 380 and that was fine.... but when his son started school she was going to send him to a school that was not at all good for education but it was near where she lived... we opted to pay for him to go to a better school and so this coming year is our 2 yr dispute and since we are paying for everything with school we are going to get the support lowered again.
If I Am Convicted Of Drunk Driving. And Required To Take A Driving A Class, Do I Have To Take It In That State, Or Can I Take It Whereever I Am Living? And If They Revoke My Licsense, Do I Have To Give It Up Right Then, Or Do I Keep It And Just Dont Drive. I Am Flying On Aug.20Th And Will Need It At The Airport.
DUI laws vary greatly from state to state, as do the length of time of the driving suspension. In some states, you will be required to surrender your license on the spot. In others, the suspension is an administrative suspension, and is issued by your department of motor vehicles.
I hope you did not go and deal with this charge without an attorney. If you did, then you may be depriving yourself of a chance that the DUI didn't need to be admitted, and there are a multitude of things that the police have to do in order to convict you of DUI.
If you don't have an attorney, go and get one, immediately. Describe the situation, and explain what you are wanting to do, (including move) Listen to their advice. You might want to shop around, to make sure the attorney has experience in DUI defense. It will cost some money, but compared to the results a DUI can have on your record, its money well spent. If you don't have an attorney and need one, contact your local or state bar association for a referral for an attorney who practices DUI defense.
Can Someone Please Help Me With My Legal Research?
I'M Doing Research Regarding The Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The Issue Is Whether Or Not A Caregiver Is Allowed To Give His/Her Qualified Patient An Ingestible Form Of Marijuana Due To Complications That Prevent Him From Smoking It.
So Far, I Know That It Is Legal But I Only Found Out Because Of The Q&Amp;A At The Michigan.Gov Website But I Still Can'T Find Any Cases To Back It Up. Can Someone Please Help Me By Giving Me Key Terms To Type In The Westlaw Database? I'Ve Been Searching For Hours :(.
I authored the brief that resulted in what was for a time the leading Michigan Court of Appeals case on medical marihuana in Michigan (People v Redden). The Westlaw search query that you want to use is "medical +2 (marijuana marihuana) +2 act & ingest!" (without the quotes).
This search query brings back 8 cases, including the case People v Carruthers, 301 Mich App 590; 837 NW2d 16 (2013). In Carruthers, the Michigan Court of Appeals held that using marijuana brownies violated the law because they did not contain "usable marijuana" under the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. The Court reasoned as follows:
“By excluding resin from the definition of ‘usable marihuana,’ as contrasted with the definition of ‘marihuana,’ and defining ‘usable marihuana’ to mean only ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant, and any mixture or preparation thereof,’ MCL 333.26423(k) (emphasis added), the drafters clearly expressed their intent not to include resin, or a mixture or preparation of resin, within the definition of ‘usable marihuana.’ They therefore expressed their intent not to include a mixture or preparation of an extract of resin. Consequently, an edible product made with THC extracted from resin is excluded from the definition of ‘usable marihuana.’ Rather, under the plain language of the MMMA, the only ‘mixture or preparation’ that falls within the definition of ‘usable marihuana’ is a mixture or preparation of ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant . . . .’” Id.
So to answer your question, the manner in which the marijuana is ingested into the body is not the determinative inquiry. Rather, the dispositive question is whether an ingestible contains "usable marijuana" as defined by the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. My understanding is that ingestibles are generally created using resin, which Carruthers says violates the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act. According to the holding in Carruthers, an ingestible would not violate the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act if but only if it constituted "a mixture or preparation of ‘the dried leaves and flowers of the marihuana plant . . . .’” Id.
I would also offer the following two caveats. First, be careful relying on legal opinions such as the Q&A at the michigan.gov website because it is impossible to determine who wrote the content or when it was last updated, and it will not constitute a defense if the information is incorrect, which appears to be the case in this instance. Second, the Michigan appellate courts have essentially eviscerated the Michigan Medical Marihuana Act and continue to do so with extremely narrow interpretations of that law. So always be sure to err on the side of caution by drawing the most conservative conclusions that you can when interpreting this law or the cases that construe it. While this is not what most medical marihuana clients / users want to hear, it is the reality under the current Michigan judiciary. I hope this of help. Good Luck with your research.
When A School Searches You Can You Refuse To Comply Until You Speak With A Parent Or Lawyer?
I Know That A School Can Search You Or Your Belongings Without Probable Cause. All They Need Is Reasonable Cause. But I Was Wondering If You Told Them That You Refuse To Comply With Them Until You Speak With A Lawyer Or Parent If They Could Do Anything. Isn'T It A Persons Right To A Fair Trial With Legal Representation? Thank You For Answering.
They are under no duty to wait for a lawyer - not even the police have that duty. As for your parents - better check with them before you pull this kind of stunt. If one of your parents gets pulled out of work because you've decided to "stand on your rights" to hide your cell phone, my guess is that you're a dead duck.
Schools have the right to search you and your belongings for contraband. If you will not cooperate, they can call the police and have you subdued.
A school search does not fall under the right to a fair trial - best start reading Supreme Court decisions, little lawyer.
When You'Re A Lawyer Is It Better To Have Your Own Law Firm Than To Have To Work With Others?
Would It Be Better Pay?
Would You Get More Business?
Would New York City Be An Ideal Place For This Since There Is A Rise Of Crime Up There More Which=More Need Of Lawyers?
It depends on the type of law practiced. For corporate or tort, it would be better to be with a big firm but it is also more pressure. For family it would be better to be alone or with another lawyer.
For criminal law, it can be either or. But if business really takes off, you could be stuck turning clients away or referring them. Most lawyers give referrals to their friends anyhow but you might get a reputation for turning away clients and then your own business falls off. That is why it might be best to have one other with you. You can also split the overhead.
I Have A Business Idea And Need A Lawyer To Review It, How Can I Get A Decent Referral?
I Have A Business Idea That Could Be Quite Profitable. I Need A Lawyer To Review It, And I Want To Make Sure That They Person Knows What They Are Talking About. I Also Don'T Have A Lot Of Money And Would Like To Offer A Percentage Of Profit Rather Than Paying Up Front.
Anyone Know Where I Can Get A Decent Referall To A Good Lawyer That May Be Interested?
I doubt a lawyer would take a percentage of profit deal.
Many would offer 1hour free consultation.
I suggest you find someone who is established and works locally. In the early stages you may have to visit them many times. It is easier to visit someone locally, then visit some guy who is miles away, has loads of clients and charges big bucks.
Have any school / college friends become lawyers?
