Most men and women do not think about acquiring a law firm until they are in desperate need. The lawful difficulty could possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce proceedings or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust legal professional. It may be a criminal condition you will need to be defended on. Companies need legal representatives as well, whether or not they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unjust business methods. Tax legal professionals are also useful when interacting with government challenges. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A sizeable, full service law firm has a number of legal representatives with distinct areas of skills, so based on your personal legal issue, you can instantly retain the perfect attorney to fulfill your existing need without having to begin your search each time you need legal help.It is best to obtain a legal representative you can believe in. You need one with a decent track record, who issincere, efficient, and wins cases. You really want to have assurance that they will represent you effectively and bill you reasonably for their services. From time to time a word of mouth from a buddy or business affiliate can be practical, even so you should keep your options open and examine all the firms accessible, because when you need to have legal help, you need it quickly and you desire the very best you can manage to pay for.

Education For Probate Attorneys?
What Kind Of Education Does One Need To Become A Probate Attorney?
Obviously Some Law School, But Any Other Specifics?
Anything You'D Recommend They Study Into?
In the USA, to become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three MORE years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take additional classes/seminars/legal training etc. each year to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!!)
7) In many states there are even laws requiring a certain percentage of your legal work to be "pro bono" (free of charge) for some charitable purpose.
Absolute "best" law schools are Yale and Harvard.
Best undergraduate majors: Business Admininstration and/or Accounting.
Best personality qualities? Ability to BS and look for work.
Tips? Change your idea of a career path ASAP!!! You WON'T be making $110,000 a year. Unless you have a mommy or a daddy who are already a partner at a law firm. As an attorney, according to one of the latest polls, you'll be making more like $40,000/yr - remember: lawyers have to pay for: office overhead, cost of living (the bigger the city, the higher your cost of living), and the crushing law school debt.
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. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! 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....
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
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!!!<<<< School loans are "non-dischargeable debts" - which means you cannot just write them off in bankruptcies (except in extremely rare cases).
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. Law schools are cash cows.
>>>>>THE #1 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:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
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.

Child Custody Please Advice?
Okay, I Am Pregnant Right Now And The Dad'S Saying Its Not His. Well, I Told Him That Rather He Beleives It Or Not Its His And I Am Putting His Name On The Birth Certificate. Well, His Response Was If I Did He Would Have A Dna Test Done(I Already Planned That) And Get Custody Of The Baby. How Likely Is It That He Can Do This If I Am Not Unfit I Have A Clean House, I Am Currently Not Working But Checking Into A Work At Home Thing. The Reason I Am Not Working Is Cuz I Can'T Lift. What Are The Chances He Will Be Able To Get Full Custody Of The Baby. I'M Not Real Worried About It But He Does Have More Money Than I Do.
Highly unlikely- parents don't get sole custody without a reason, the majority of judges won't go for that. In all honesty, he's just saying that to scare you out of doing the test- if DNA tests prove it's his, he'll have to pay child support, and it sounds like he will do anything possible to keep from having responsibility in this- he's not going to go for full custody, he doesn't even want to be named the daddy..
What Do Most Criminal Defense Lawyers Major In?
Although provision vary by state, in order to become a criminal defense lawyer you first need to obtain a bachelor's degree. You can choose any major however most people intending to enter law school choose political science, history, criminal justice, or pre-law majors. You must also pass the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) if applying to an ABA (American Bar Association) approved school. Once accepted you will then need to complete 3 years of legal studies in law school if attending full time and longer if attending only part time. Unlike medical school attending a certain institution does not guarantee you a seat in law school. Students fiercely compete for a seat in a law school. You should keep your undergraduate grade point average as high as possible and strive obtain the highest LSAT score to your ability. I am a pre-law major, so good luck to you future counselor
How Long Do I Have To Sue My Lawyer For Legal Malpractice After The Lawsuit Has Been Settled?
It depends on the state. And it may also be from when the malpractice occurred rather than when the suit is settled.
Legal malpractice is very hard to prove unless they miss a deadline or something obvious like that. The rest is a lot of different opinion on what most lawyers would do.
The time limit can be as short as a year or up to three years, depending on the state. It can also vary from when you discover the malpractice.
You also have to prove their actions caused damages to you.
You should contact a legal malpractice attorney as soon as possible so you don't blow the deadline. The initial consultation should be free, although they may be able to tell you that you don't have a case on the phone. Don't call medical malpractice attorneys, they don't do that kind of case.
You may have to do an online search for legal malpractice for your state. Don't limit yourself to the phone book.
Is There A Lawyer In The Dallas, Fort Worth Area That Has Experience In Litigation Against Texas Attorney Gen.
Tried For Years To Collect Back Child Support. We Were Only Strung Along By The State Attorney Generals Office, Now The Child Is Over 18. Looking For A Lawyer To Retrieve My Records, Review And Decide If We Might Have A Case Against Them. There Is A Paper Trail. We Lost Out On Over 50,000.00 Because Of Their Negligence.
In Texas it is very difficult to prevail in a malpractice suit against a private attorney, it is virtually impossible to sue the attorney of the opposing party, and there a very few situtations where the Attorney General's Office (or any of its Assistant Attorneys General) can be sued, because the attorneys general are agents of the state and are generally immune to civil suits. Individually they enjoy official immunity for acts done or omission in connection with their work.
