Im Really Interested In Becoming A Criminal Defense Attorney.. Im In High School. Where Do I Start?
Any Advice? Where Can I Intern / Get Practice? What Do I Study (My School Dose Not Offer Any Classes For This Career)? Help?
I am a retired attorney and spent five years doing criminal defense work.
You do not take courses in criminal law until law school.
In high school get the best grades and board scores possible. Go to a good university. Most state universities are fine. I went to one and majored in history. Amy major which requires a lot of critical reading and writing is fine preparation for law school. There is no major called pre-law, which is simply a description of your reason for being in undergraduate school.
At the start of your senior year in college, apply to several law schools. You will need to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT). The best time to take it is in June of your junior year in college or in September of your senior year, so you will need to take the test before you apply to law schools. The test is similar to the SAT, but much more difficult. It lasts half a day. Look at the LSAT website for info.
Apply to at least eight law schools. Just as for undergraduate school, include "fit", "reach" and "safety" schools. Be sure that the law school is approved by the American Bar Association. See their website.
Go to the best law school you can, but any ABA approved law school is fine. Unless you are going to one of the ten top national law schools, it is easiest to go in the state where you plan to practice. The law schools at state universities are fine.
In law school, compete for a position on the best law review. Law reviews are student-edited legal journals and membership on one is highly valued by employers. If you make law review, it will take a lot of your time.
In your summers in law school, try to do internships in law offices which handle criminal law. They may or may not be paid. It does not matter if they do prosecution or defense law.
In your third (last) year of law school, apply for a job in a public defender's office. This is the best on-the-job training you can get. You can also get good training in a prosecutor's office.
Take a bar exam review course before you take the bar exam.
Pass the bar exam, be admitted to the bar and you are now a lawyer!
I hope you enjoy criminal defense law. (Please read this whole paragraph before coming to any conclusions.) You will spend all day working with criminals, as most of your clients will not be first offenders, but will already have been convicted of other crimes and have spent time in jail or prison. Most of them are not very nice people. They will lie to you. You will lose most of your cases as district attorneys prosecute many more guilty people than innocent ones.
Perhaps after about five years, you will decide that you would rather be a criminal cases prosecutor and you will join a prosecutor's office.
I did and was much happier in this position. I then, due to circumstance outside my profession, was able to retire at age 51.
Good luck and please feel free to email me if you have other questions,
How To Find The Best Lawyer?
Give Me Some Links If Posible.
When you are seeking legal advice it is very important to find the right lawyer. There are good and bad ones out there and you need to choose one that will fight for you and try to get results that are acceptable. Price is often a problem as there are a lot of attorneys who will over charge you.
So, there are two ways of finding a lawyer. One is –
You search the lawyer who is from the same state in your yellow pages and is familiar with all the state laws. Then you will search for the firm that deals with your particular type of case, as many attorneys will specialize in different fields. Then you will look for an experienced attorney which is board certified in the state where they are practicing. Then you will check their reputation with general public or peers. Then you will try to get a free initial consultation which mostly attorneys do not give for free. After all these stuffs, you are not sure that the contract you are sighing does not have any hidden fees.
Now let’s have a look at the second one –
You fill a simple form in a reliable company. An expert and experience attorney contacts you within 24hrs at the time you want. He gives you a genuine advice and updates you with the proper laws, proper procedures and genuine charges. There is no hidden cost and you don’t have to pay anything till now.
Now if you think that this attorney will be able to solve your issue you pay only $1/day, otherwise if you think that you want another attorney and you are not satisfied with the current attorney you can easily do this.

I'M In Need Of Legal Help And Need A Lawyer.?
Does Anyone Know Any Lawyers In Washington State?
Make sure that you get a lawyer who specializes in your type of case. I got burned once with a lawyer who didn't know his butt from a hole in the ground regarding hit and run cases.
Also, lawyers who specialize are usually cheaper in the long run.
Resources For Alcoholic With Possible Brain Injury In Portland, Oregon?
A Family Member Of Mine Is An Alcoholic And Addict. Every Time He Stops Drinking For About A Day, He Has Seizures And Is Taken To The Hospital. After A Couple Of Days Kaiser Releases Him. He Immediately Goes Back To Drinking Because He'S In So Much Pain From Withdrawals. He Recently Had Brain Surgery (Twice) From When He Fell And Hit His Head (Maybe During A Seizure, Or Maybe From Another Cause). He'S Very Rarely Coherent And Often Does Not Know Who His Family Members Are When He Sees Them. Nobody Seems To Be Able To Tell If His Problems Are Entirely Based On His Alcoholism Or If They Are Caused By A Brain Injury. Does Anyone Know Any Resources In The Portland Area To Get Him The Help He Needs? He'S Too Out Of It To Check Himself Into A Rehab Program, But His Lawyer Claims That He'S Too With It For The Family To Have Him Committed To Anything. Does Anyone Have Any Idea What Can Be Done With This Situation? Doctors And Lawyers Don'T Seem To Be Providing Any Answers At All And His Family Is Having A Very Hard Time Watching All Of This Happen And Feeling Completely Helpless. Any Help Or Leads To People Who Might Be Helpful Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
Ultimately, this person needs to want to quit drinking. You cannot force them to quit. It may be that you actually get him help and have him recover, at least somewhat, just to have him come out of rehab/detox and go back to binge drinking.
Given that, as you say, he is rarely even coherent I have a hard time believing a lawyer has legal precedence to supersede the wishes of your family who can clearly tell this relative needs medical help now.
It really sounds like your relative is dying. And that may be a reality you should prepare yourself for because without immediate help, that is what is going to happen.
As far as answering medical questions about why he is the way he is, I cannot say. For one, he's still drinking. Which isn't helping anything. He's also already had seizures and brain damage. Any of these can affect judgment, especially if he's still drinking. That is why I wounder why this lawyer is trying to prevent this relative from getting medical help if he is clear that far gone.
What you can do is look up local rehab and intervention centers. Get in touch with an interventionist, find out about local treatment centers, make contacts with the people who run these things, tell them your story and find out what they can do for you. Again, a person has to want to quit in order to actually do so. But you still have options so don't give up hope. Maybe if this person can sober up for more than a week and stay stabilized, they will want to give treatment an honest try. Just keep in mind, if he doesn't get help, he is going to die. Probably pretty soon too.
Help Me Child Custody Rights?
My 10 Months Old Daughter Havent Seen Her Dad For Exactly A Month ...Since She Was 9 Month S Dad Is Suppose To Take Her Tuesday Wednesday And Thursday... But Its Been A Month Now He Just Textes Me Today Now To See If He Can Pic Her Up What Shpuld I Do ...He Is Not Responsible Can He Loose Custody
Okay, so as long as there is a court-ordered custody agreement in place that says he gets to take her on Tue, Wed, & Thu, then you must comply with that agreement even if he has blown it off a few times. He may be screwing up, but he's still her father and he has rights too.
On the other hand, if he is paying you child support (which he should be), AND he's skipping out on his visitation, you can go back to court and ask for more child support to cover the costs of you filling in for him as care-giver on those days. Those days when he is supposed to have custody are also days that he doesn't normally have to pay you for child support (because HE is providing for your daughter's care during that time). So if he's not taking her on his assigned days, that causes an increased financial burden on you, and he is to blame for that. The courts will often re-arrange the custody and child support schedule if one parent isn't honoring the original agreement.
