A lot of people do not think about finding a law firm right up until they are in desperate need. The legal issue could possibly be personal, like family law, for a breakup or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a felony situation you need to be defended on. Firms require legal representatives as well, regardless of whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unfair business strategies. Tax lawyers are also beneficial when interacting with government problems. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A big, full service law firm has numerous legal professionals with numerous areas of experience, so depending on your own personal legal issue, you can promptly retain the greatest legal professional to meet your current need without having to start your search each time you need legal support.It is most effective to find a lawyer or attorney you can have faith in. You need one with a good record, who isreliable, reliable, and wins cases. You really want to have assurance that they will defend you properly and charge you fairly for their services. Sometimes a reference from a good friend or business associate can be practical, having said that you should keep your options open and evaluate all the firms accessible, because when you need to have legal help, you need it instantly and you desire the very best you can afford.

Any Opinions On Personal Injury Lawyer In Pasadena, Ca?
I Am Looking At How Much It Cost And If The Lawyer Followed Up And If Their Is Any Lawyers That Could Be Recommended
If it is a personal injury case most attorneys will take your case on a contingency fee basis which means they don't get paid unless you win the case. I have attached a link. I would do some investigation on different personal injury lawyers in California prior to contacting a lawyer. Look for those attorneys that have experience in representing cases that are similar to your accident. Link below:
I Have A Question For Lawyers Or Paralegals. (No Legal Advice)?
Ok I Am A Paralegal Student. I Am Having The Hardest Time Finding Out The Process In Which Evidence Is Admitted Into Court? I Have Been All Over The Federal Rules Of Evidence. I Know That A Judge Has To Approve The Evidence Right? Before It Can Be Admitted. I Also Know That The Opposing Party Can Object To The Evidence Being Admitted Into Court, And Of Course All Evidence Must Follow The Federal Rules To Be Admitted. But What Is The Actual Process. A Paralegal Cannot Admit Evidence Right? A Paralegal Can Only Get The Evidence In Order And Then Protect It For The Supervising Attorney Right? Also I Need To Know Where To Find This Information. I Am Trying To Learn Here Lol..So I Am Not Just Looking For A Quick Answer To My Question. I Would Like To Know Where I Can Find The Information. This Is For An Interview And Investigation Class, And The Text Box Gives No Information... Sorry So Long Winded Thanks.....
It depends on the type of legal work that is being done.
The evidence (documentary) can be attached to a pleading and needs to be authenticated with a declaration.
During trial, the attorney asks the witness about the particular piece of evidence (documentary) and then moves it to be admitted into evidence. An objection can be made by the opposing side (lack of foundation, hearsay, etc.) and then the judge rules.
When I Go To Court Tomorrow Can I Ask To Speak To The Prosecutor Or Ask For A Lawyer.
I Have A Court Date Tomorrow For D.W.I & Speeding 15Mph Over.I Have Asked For A Public Defender Was Told The Don't Supply Them(If You Can't Afford 1 They Will Apoint 1).I Already Postponed The First Date.I Don't Want To Just Take Whats Giving If It's To Harsh.I Admit I'm Wrong For This But I Was Only Slightly Above The Limit(No Excuse).I Am On A Set Income Of Disabilty & I Just Slide By.I Know This Is Wrong But I Don't Want To Be Rail Roaded Because I Have No Defense.Thank You.If It Matters I Live In Missouri(St.Louis).
Do not speak to the prosecutor about your case, you do not want to jeopardize incriminating yourself, they should have all they need to know for the case. Let the court know that you can not afford a lawyer and they will provide one, most public defenders have such a huge case load that it is hard for them to keep up with each case, so be sure to let the public defender know all the information that you can supply him/her that's not in the record.
Seeking Legal Advice - California Labor Laws - Need Lawyer - How Do I Begin A Lawsuit Against Corporation?
I Live In Northern California, A Back In December A Huge Corporate Restaurant Opened Up In My Hometown And I Was Part Of The Initial Staff Of Waiters Hired For Opening. I Know California Labor Laws Are Sensitive So I'M 99.99% Positive I Have A Case. Also, One Of My Former Coworkers Was Suing The Restaurant, No Class-Action Lawsuit, And I Heard Through The Grapevine That She Received $20,000 Out Of Court...
Long Story Short The Grand Opening Wasn'T So Grand; It Was Hectic, Unorganized, Some Of Us Would Work 8-12 Hour Shifts Without Lunch Breaks (Even If We Did Get A Lunch Break It Was Usually Within The First Hour Of Our Shift, Or Last Hour Before We Closed, So We Would Would Work Several Hours Straight With No Breaks), We Were Never Payed Overtime For Working More Than 8 Hour Shifts (My Stubs Read Reg Hrs: 8.00, Ot Hrs: 8:00).
It Was Simply Chaotic, And It Was Difficult To Keep Track Of My Hours Because To Top It Off The Managers Would Clock Me Out In Order For Them To &Quot;Finish [Their] Work&Quot; At The End Of The Night, So Sometimes I Would Be Busting My A$$ Off At 3:00Am Cleaning The Restaurant, Once I Finished And Did My Turn-In I Would Try To Clock-Out...Surprise!!!...I Was Already Clocked Out!!! Since I Was Already Clocked-Out I Couldn'T Print My Time-Slip.
I Would Complain To The Manager That I Didn'T Like The Fact That They Modified My Time, My Excuse Was That I Liked To &Quot;Keep Track Of My Hours&Quot;, But They Would Tell Me That I Could Get A Print-Out Later, That I Will Get Paid For The Hours I Worked Because They Would &Quot;Adjust The Time Later&Quot;, That If They Didn'T Clock Me Out They Would Have To Stay Until I Cleaned Up The Restaurant Until They Could Do Their Own Paperwork, Etc., Etc.
The Point Is I Couldn'T Get Any Time Slips From The Computer To Prove The Time I Clocked Out Because They Would Clock Me Out* I Know This Is Illegal*
I Would Put Up With This Because Times Are Tough And At Least I Had A Job (Keyword Being 'Had') So I Wanted To Keep My Job And Not Get On Management'S Bad Side. Well Sure Enough Business Died Down, Several People Were Laid Off, And I Was One Of The Many Who Was Reduced From Working 5 Shifts A Week, Down To 1 Shift Every Every 2 Weeks. Once They Told Me I Was Only Going To Be Scheduled 1 Shift Every Other Week I Gave Up And Put In My 2 Week Notice After Putting Up With These Working Conditions For 4 Months. It Was Almost An Inconvenience To Work 1 Night Every 2 Weeks, I Couldn'T Keep Up With The New Menus, Rules, And Policies As It Was.
I Want To Pursue A Lawsuit Against This Corporation, But I Need All The Help I Can Get As To How To Approach It. I Would Need To Talk To A Lawyer, And I Don'T Have Money Up Front To Pay For A Lawyer (No Job), So I Am Hoping Someone Can Guide Me Through This Pro Bono In The Beginning Until The End, And Of Course Fees Can Be Paid After This Ordeal Is Over. Thank You For Reading, I Appreciate Any Advice.
Ask the co-worker that the grapevine says won the 20K and use their lawyer
Question Regarding A Legal Will.?
When My Father Passed Away In July My Sister Was In Charge Of Distributing The Money Leftover After The Funeral Services Were Paid For. The Amount For Each Of Us (6 Kids) Is Around 1, 200. One Of My Brothers And My Other Sister Both Got Half Of That Or Less And As For Me And My Brother Here We Have Yet To Get Anything 3 Months Later.
I Called Her About It And We Came To This Issue In Our Conversation Her Tone Changed And Seemed Disinterested In Setting Up The Transfer With Her Bank Td, Wich Is The Same I Deal With. Since That Conversation She Will Not Answer Her Home Or Cell Phone When I Call And I Have Tried Numerous Times So Clearly She Is Trying To Avoid Paying The Rest Of The Kids.
I Don'T Know Too Much About The Process But I Am Almost Positive She Is Breaking The Law By Not Doing What Was Said In The Will.
Should I Contact The Insurance Company That My Dad Dealt With?
Take Her To Court?
I Don'T Know What To Do At This Point...
Kinda Sad That She Is Doing This To Us I Always Knew She Was A Dishonest Gold Digger.
Probate matters tend to reveal a person's true colors................
Get an attorney. For your own protection, get an attorney. >>>>>But I would make it clear, from the very beginning, that this estate probably qualifies for "small estate administration".<<<<<
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
>>>Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Estate Law. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
Since your father had a Will, your sister SHOULD have filed this with the Probate Court. THIS IS PUBLIC RECORD. Go to the Probate Court of the county seat of the county that your father lived in. Ask for a copy of your father's Will. (Take a little bit of money to pay for copies.) I would also ask if a probate case had been opened for your father - GET COPIES!
BUT, if the only money to be distributed is from an insurance policy, if the insurance policy specifically named your sister as the beneficiary, there probably is nothing you can do. If an insurance policy specifically names a beneficiary, this is considered "contractual" and is NOT under the jurisdiction of a probate court.
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
