You want one with a very good record, who isstraightforward, effective, and wins cases. You need to have confidence that they will represent you thoroughly and bill you reasonably for their products and services. Occasionally a recommendation from a good friend or business affiliate can be valuable, having said that you should continue to keep your options open and examine all the firms accessible, simply because when you need to have legal support, you need it rapidly and you really want the finest you can afford.

Probate Lawyers Please Help?
Without Going Into Too Much Detail Just Under 5 Years Back My Grandfather Passed Who Had Listed Me To Recieve 25% Of His Estate I Am Trying To Be Cautious Posting This Question As I Do Not Want Any Problems With The Exceuter Of His Estate Now His Executer Called Me And Said That Would Be Approx X Amount Of $$ I Have Questioned This From Day One First Of All The Executer Stated To Me We Were Just Going To Do This Without Going Through Probate Because It Would Take An Extremley Long Time Etc. I Had No Idea It Was Law That It Was Supposed To Go Through Probate The Reason I Questioned The Amount From Day 1 Is Because I Frequently Visited My Grandparents They Were Everything To Me And My Grandmother Mentioned To Me Numerous Times That She Could Not Spend In A Lifetime What They Had In One Savings Account Alone She Unexpectedly Passed One Year Before My Grandfather. I Need An Atorney With A Heart To At Least Check His Accts Prior To His Passing And Then Tell Me Yes You Need To Reopen This.
An executor does NOT have the right to say weather he will or will NOT got through probate. That is the law.....
I would find out who is the executor of your grandmothers estate as it may have something to do with the amount you will get from your grandfather..
I am not sure finding a lawyer has anything to do with finding one with a heart.
Since you are person of interest in his estate you have to legal right to seeing ALL his accounts before and after his death.
An estate or probate lawyer is really all you need.

And it's even harder to find a job in this vocational field.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! 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.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
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 real ultimate goal.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with BACHLORS degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
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 have too many law schools. We are 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.
>>>>>THE 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!!!*****
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

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.

Joint Custody - Pros And Cons?
Please! Need Some Info From Those In This Situation. My Son'S Father Wants Joint Custody (He Has Never Seen Him On A Regular Basis - His Choice, And Now, 6 1/2 Years Later?) I Realize I'M Selfish To Want To Keep My Son With Me, But I Think He'S Selfish As Well. My Son Likes Security - He Likes His Routine - Getting Up An Hour Earlier For School, Getting Home An Hour Later, Sleeping In Different Beds, All That Good Stuff - How Is That Good For A Child? We Had A Parenting Schedule (Which He Followed For About Two Months) 2 Years Ago (We Never Married), And He Is Consistently Late Paying Child Support And Still Owes Arrears. If It'S About The Money, He Can Keep It, But He Says My Son Doesn'T Know Much About His &Quot;Other&Quot; Family. I'M Pretty Sure He'Ll Throw In The Cultural Thing, Too. I Do What I Can And My Son And I Talk About Differences A Lot.
Seriously, If You Have Good Things To Say About It, Let Me Know, But I Definitely Want To Hear About Any Issues. Thank You!
I have joint custody with my ex for are daughter, but he has always been a responsible parent for the most part. He has always seen her very regularly, and even when he lived 2 hours away he would come and get her every friday and keep her till sunday. She was in school and he could not get her through the week then. He moved back to town after about six months away, because he wanted to be able to have her for his whole week. I have had problems with him bring her home if she get sick, because a mother knows how to handle these things mind you his wife has 3 children of her own. She should know how to handle them as well. They brought her home at 2 am one time so I could take her to the hospital( she was extremely ill), because they did not know where the children's hospital was in our area. It is 5 minutes from where we both live, and he grew up here. How do you have 4 kids between you the oldest 8 at the time, and not know where the only children's hospital in the area is. The other hospitals in the area will not even see kids. I also have had trouble getting him to pay for his half of her needs, but that has changed. I don't want you to think my daughters father is a bad guy. He is a good father, but he has his issues, and who doesn't. I am sure he could tell a couple not so shining stories on me too. If they are a good parent who loves their kids and tries to take care of them to the best of their abilities, I think joint custody is awesome. Though you do need to communicate with your ex for this situation to work out. So that the child has a similiar routine at both homes, and the same things are expected of them and the punishment is the same for bad behavior at both homes. If the father is not good with visitation and child support they have now. There is no way I would agree to joint custody. I would tell the father after they show that they can be responsible enough to carry out the previous orders of the court then I would consider it. I would not put my child through that. A father who is in and out of a child's life can be very damaging to their self esteem any ways, by promising things and not carrying through with them. The child wonders what they did to make dad not want to get them or whatever the broken promise was. The child somehow thinks they did something and that is why dad didn't keep their word. When they are older they start to question why other things seem to be more important to their dad than them. It can be very harmful to the child, and by allowing this type of father joint custody you would just open your child up to have their father dissapoint them more often, and make his life very unsettled. I do not think I would be worried about the money, but if he will not pay a court ordered support. Then I doudt he will help you to buy half of all the things a child needs. You can keep track of what they help you purchase or buy themselves, but it is not as easy to track as child support. So yes I think joint custody can be a beautiful thing between 2 responsible parents who are able to communicate with each other for the sake of their child. In your case I would not consider it till the father becomes much more responsible, or I think your child will become very hurt and have a very unstable life. You must have a strick schedule that is followed so as not to interrupte the childs life with joint custody. I have my daughter from one friday after school to the net friday when I send her to school. She then goes to her dad's after school on friday. When the school is closed on a friday she stays with the parent she is with till when school would let out then the other parent picks her up. We have the same bedtimes at both houses and the same meal times and bath times. We have exactly the same schedules at both house. Which we had to discuss at length so that everyone would be happy and able to manage our schedules. It is not easy, but we felt it best for our daughter. Unless you think your ex is responsible enough to handle this, and he clearly does not sound this responsible. Then I would say no for the reasons I already explained. Good Luck and you sound like a wonderful mother who is willing to put your child first.
I Have A Problem , I Cant Trust The People Around Me.In All Diffrent Cases.Eg Work,Relationships,Emotionally,,,What Do You Guys Suggest?? Plz Help
well, Trust is something people gain through their experiences. Your trust towards other people reflects your perception of them. Isn't there anybody really trustworthy? Did all of them hurt you the same to not trust at all? if the answer is yes, then you're case is an extreme case of paranoia. a psychological defence mechanism to prevent future hurts....
but Human beings are not Hurt-proof... you really can get hurt but it depends on you on how deeply you want to be. you can get out of an experience losing trust to only 1 person, but use your wisdom, knowing that 1 person should not change your whole preception in life most especially your Trust issue.
dont worry, though trust is not fixable. you can surely start building a new one with a new person.
