Which Is Better, Doctor Or Lawyer?
I Know It Depends On What A Dr Or Lawyer Specializes In But Which Do You Think Makes The Most Money And Respect?
As a profession, doctors are the best paid, while lawyers are 3rd. (Dentists are 2nd.) When it comes to respect, there are a lot more sleazy lawyer jokes than sleazy doctor jokes. On the other hand, there's a lot of pressure in being a doctor. Medical malpractice insurance is crippling to a lot of doctors, which is part of the reason why lawyers are so well-paid as a profession.
But ask yourself this: Would you rather be a doctor who's under pressure to save someone's life, or a lawyer who's paid to make someone's life as miserable as possible?
What Was It Like Having A Social Security Disability Lawyer Working On Your Claim?
I Don'T Feel Like My Disability Attorney Has Been Trying To Win My Case, But I Don'T Know What'S Normal Or What I Should Expect. I Want To Know What Other People Experienced With Their Social Security Disability Lawyer, So I Can See How It Compares To Mine. Here Are Some Questions:
How Many Times Did You Speak With Your Attorney? (I'M Only Interested In How Many Times You Spoke Directly With Your Attorney, Not Their Assistant.)
What Kind Of Information Did Your Lawyer Get From You?
Did He/She Talk To You About Your Past Job Duties Or Have You Fill Out Any Questionnaires?
Did Your Lawyer Or Someone From His/Her Office Help You Fill Out Any Of The Paperwork From The Ssa?
What Did Your Lawyer Do To Prepare You For Your Hearing? Did He Meet With You Beforehand? If So, How Long Before? In General, What Did You Discuss? Did You Go Over Your File Together Or Talk About How You Should Answer The Judges Questions Etc.?
How Involved Was Your Lawyer During Your Actual Hearing? Did He/She Present Any Evidence Or Ask You Any Questions? Did Your Lawyer Ask The Vocational Expert Any Questions?
Anything Else You Can Think Of?
I Really, Really Appreciate Anyone Who Can Take A Few Minutes To Answer My Questions. This Is Very Important To Me.
First there is no reason to retain the services of an attorney until AFTER you've filed the request for a hearing. Once the hearing has been filed there isn't much an attorney can do until close to the time the hearing is held. My sister filed for disability based upon a mental disorder and shortly after she got her attorney he arranged a consultative exam. It was two years before the hearing was held and that was her only contact with him until they were both notified of the hearing.
Many, but not all, of the attorneys send their secretaries or clerks to the social security office to photocopy all of the medical related records in the social security file - don't know what they do now since SS has gone paperless and everything is scanned into the computers. Perhaps they have access via computer.
I can only tell you that people who have an attorney who is familiar with social security disability law and regulations have an edge over those who don't especially if the attorney is aware of the vocational aspects of the law and how they apply to the disabled. Those attorneys can generally provide a strong case taking into account the medical evidence and vocational aspects of the case.
I was allowed into the hearing room for my sister's hearing and her attorney brought up points he wanted the ALJ to consider which wouldn't otherwise have been raised by my sister. The ALJ paid absolutely no attention to the lengthy report the psychiatrist wrote up who set up by my sister's attorney - the ALJ actually said that he thought it was worthless because, obviously, the psychiatrist would say whatever the attorney wanted him to say. But that was that ALJ (I was shocked to tell you the truth) - doesn't mean all ALJs would disspell a report simply because the psychiatrist represented my sister and her attorney.
All in all, if I had a claim pending with social security and filed for a hearing, I would sure get myself an attorney and I would recommend others do so as well.
There were two attorneys who often represented SS and SSI claimants in the six counties my office serviced and I wish I could have told their clients to get someone else - but we couldn't do that - I suspect many a claimant lost benefits because of them. One of them never filed anything on time and claimants actually lost out on appeals because that attorney was supposed to have filed the appeals for them and he never did. Claimants should always file their own appeals.
Questions On Criminal Lawyer
What Type Of Job Is This?
Is This Similar To Defence Lawyer?
What Type Of Crime Do Crimnal Lawyers Deal With?
Criminal lawyers are one of two types. Prosecutors work for a government agency (Federal, state or local) and they prosecute people who are charged with crimes. Defense lawyers defend those folks. Defense lawyers are usually in private practice, either in a firm or on their own but some work for the public defender's office. The type of crimes that a specific lawyer in private practice will defend is up to that lawyer.
Legal Advice For A Dog Attack?
Last Week I Visited A Friend And Her Boyfriends Dog Was In Front Of Her Door, As I Tried To Walk To The Front Door The Dog Went Behind Me And Bit My Leg. The Owner Of The Dog Is The Boyfriend (Who Witness The Attack & Said &Quot;Oh Well, Not My Problem&Quot;) But My Ex Friend Said She Would Take Full Responsibility For The Attack (At The Time-- And I Also Have This Conversation Via Text Messages). Needless To Say Now She Is Going Back On Her Word. Do I Have The Right To Take Her To Small Claims Court? Not Only Do I Not Have Medical Insurance And Was Admitted To Emergency, Paid Over $100 In Medication, The Dog Ruined A Brand New Pair Of Expensive Pants, Nightmares Of Random Animals Biting Me In The Same Location And The Fear Of Pit Bulls And Other Dogs That Customers Bring To My Current Place Of Employment.
Thanks For The Help.
Well, in this awesome litigious country, you can take people to small claims court for ANYTHING.
But you are asking if you have a case or not. You do.
My suggestion is this: write a demand letter to your friend AND HER BOYFRIEND, asking them for reimbursement for your medical costs and medications. Inform them kindly in this letter that if they refuse, you will be forced to proceed with legal actions - in which you will sue for not only your medical bills, but for pain and suffering as well.
If that doesnt light a fire under their posteriors, then file a small claims action against them.
If You Go To A Great Law School(Top 10 In The Country),What Are The Chances You Will Get Into A Big Law Firm?
If You Attend One Of The Best Law Schools In The Country(Harvard,Stanford Columbia,Etc.)Is It A Good Chance You Would Get A Job At A Top Law Firm?
Take a look at lawschooltransparency.com. That'll give you a good idea about the school's job placement.
The odds aren't bad right now. Anywhere from 30-60% get into biglaw at most top schools. The better ones place more, of course. If you go to Stanford or Yale, the numbers will skew lower because many of them go into prestigious clerkships or academia. They're still great for biglaw, though, and they tend to get a very large number of interviews at OCI (on-campus interviews - a law school's internal recruiting process).
As I said in an answer to your previous question, you probably aren't going HYSC (Harvard, Yale, Stanford or Columbia) with your numbers unless you're URM (African American, Mexican American, Native American, Puerto Rican ancestry), attended one of a few select prestigious undergraduate universities or just have something crazy extraordinary, but you could get into NYU or UPenn. Those feed really well into the NYC legal market, which is doing fairly well. The job offers are nowhere near what they were before the crash, but better than Chicago, LA, and the secondary markets. If you can do median or better at NYU and you don't disqualify yourself at OCI by being a terrible interview, you will probably get some biglaw offer assuming you target New York. The going entry-level pay is around $160,000/year, although some pay more and some pay less. In NYC, that's not much. Your money goes a lot further in Chicago, parts of California, and secondary markets, of course.
