Who Is The Best/Good Criminal Defense/Dwi/Dui Lawer In Fairfax County?
I Am In The Military And Recieved A Dwi. I Am Not Sure What To Look For When Lookin For A Lawyer
I don;t know military implications for a dui. I'd suggest just talking with the public defender to make sure that procedures are followed properly.
If they have a good case (breathalizers don;t lie), then you really don;t need a lawyer to defend your actions. Just make sure than any factors that look favorably on you are presented and take responsibility in court.

I Need Help With Legal Advice.?
My Fiances Ex Wrote Bad Checks And Signed His Name And Now He Is Being Prosecuted For It. We Went To The Place Where The Checs Were Written,With The Advice Of His Attorney, And The Guy Said If We Paid Him Back He Would Wite A Writ And Contact The Prosecuting Attorney,I Believe To Drop The Charges. If He Does This Is It Over Or Can The Attorney Go On Prosecuting Him Without A Plaintiff? Please Someone Help Me.
Was the account joint or individual? If joint he would also be liable. If it was a single name account, then he could prosecute with forgery charges. If these were to a store, whose I.D. is on the checks for having negotiated them? If, for example, it was a retail store and it is Linda's I.D., and a single name account in the name of Tom.... it 1) shows that the store accepted the check from a third party and 2) bolsters the cause of action against the ex..
Forgery is a felony. You have tremendous leverage over the ex!
Questions About Lawyers..?
I'M A 9Th Grader, I Work Very Hard In School. Next Year I Will Be Taking Business Law And Criminal Justice Class. I Really Like To Prove A Point And Think Logically In Order To Make My Point Clear. I Was Wondering How Much It Would Cost Me To Become A Lawyer? Like Bar Exams And Stuff Like That. I Live In Ny But I Was Planning On Going To Mcgill In Montreal. What Are Some Good Law Schools In Canada And The U.S? And How Much Do Lawyers Make ? Thank You For Your Answers And Your Time.
To become a lawyer in the United States (I have no idea about Canada), you will need to do the following:
(1) Graduate from High School with a good GPA.
(2) Take the SAT or ACT and do well in order to get into a good college.
(3) Go to college, graduate with a Bachelor's degree and maintain a decent GPA. The cost of this will vary from school to school. State schools are typically much cheaper, but they are harder to get into. Tuition at state schools will likely be around $8,000 per year (4 years, so probably $36,000). If you work during school you can probably graduate debt free, but you will have a harder time maintaining a good GPA.
(4) Take the LSAT, and do well. The LSAT is the law school entrance exam. You will need to score in the top third of all LSAT takers, at least, to have any decent options. If you are in the top half, you could probably get into a Tier 4 law school (expensive, but an ABA approved education, at least).
(5) Go to an ABA approved Law School -- again, state schools will be much cheaper, but are typically very hard to get into. A state school will probably have tuition around $18,000 per year. Law school is usually 3 years. At a state school, this means $54,000 in tuition. If you don't work during school, you will need to borrow living expenses for the 3 years, which will probably be around $40,000, depending on the location.
So, excluding the cost of getting your bachelor's degree (assuming you got it for free), you are looking at paying $94,000 to get a law degree. If you buy a bar preparation course, that is an additional $4,000, about, and then the bar itself costs about $1,000 (but varies depending on the state you are taking it in). So, your total price to get licensed would be $95,000.
Most people (who don't have wealthy families) pay for this via student loans.
If you go to a school that is not a state school, your tuition will likely be at least $30,000 per year, or $90,000 to graduate, then add the $40,000 for living expenses, and the $5,000 for the bar prep and bar exam. So, if you go to a private law school, you are looking at $135,000 to graduate from law school (again, this does not include getting a Bachelor's degree).
These prices are in today's dollars. By the time you are ready for law school, the prices will likely have gone up.
It is a long road, but it is worth it. Being a lawyer can be a very rewarding career. You can do a lot of good for many people, and make decent money.
Jobs for lawyers right now are not very available. The economy was hit, and lawyers were hit very hard.
New lawyers will probably be making $60,000 per year at the moment.
However, pay does rise over time beyond what most other jobs do, well into the six figures if you are good.

Ps. A Lot Of Lawyers Are Tellling Us To Do As Much As We Can By Ourselves, But I Am Tired From Having Weltsl/Hives On Face & Neck & Infected Fingers From Mold? Stress?
You may contact local law firms, many of them provide free legal aid or charge a very nominal fees, if they think that the client is in real need and can't afford to pay a hectic fees. In such situations usually the firm charges a contingency fees ( i.e. if you win you have to pay ). Also you may be required to pay the court fees and other charges except the lawyers consultation fees.
There are cases where one may not qualify for the "Legal Aid" but the are actually not in a position to afford the legal expenses.
Should There Be A 2 Strikes And Your Out Drunk Driving Law?
I don't know where you live, but here 1 strike loses you license, mandatory jail (12-24 hrs) and then the court's judgment (usually diversion to rehab or drunk school and huge fine).
Most of the habitual DUI's are driving without a license.
If someone is killed by a drunk driver it is negligent homicide, or if aggravated can be become manslaughter.
