A lot of people do not think about finding a lawyer until finally they are in desperate need. The legal problem could be personal, like family law, for a separation and divorce or if you are searching for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a criminal situation you will need to be defended on. Firms require legal representatives as well, whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unfounded business tactics. Tax lawyers are also helpful while engaging with government difficulties. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A huge, full service law firm has many lawyers with unique areas of competence, so relying on your personal legal issue, you can immediately retain the best legal professional to fulfill your current need without having to begin your search each time you need legal help.It is ideal to obtain a lawyer or attorney you can believe in. You want one with a very good record, who issincere, productive, and wins cases. You want to have assurance that they will represent you the right way and charge you fairly for their services. Quite often a referral from a good friend or business affiliate can be valuable, however you should hold your options open and examine all the firms accessible, for the reason that when you require legal help, you need it instantly and you would like the very best you can pay for.

Can A Corporate Lawyer Become A Judge? Or Do You Have To Be A Criminal Lawyer...I'M From Canada Btw :P?
I Want To Know Whether A Corporate (Business-Related) Lawyer Could Become A Judge In Canada...
In the US, any lawyer can become a judge (you don't even have to be a lawyer for the Supreme Court), but usually appellate litigators are the top choices. Judges, especially at the higher levels, deal with all sorts of cases and so need good reasoning and writing skills and familiarity with the system that you usually only get as someone with appeals experience. Corporate lawyers rarely have that kind of experience, and most criminal lawyers don't, either. I would assume the Canadian system is similar - you want people with the academic knowledge, regardless of their exact specialization.
Does My Friend Need A Criminal Attorney?
My Friend Is Collecting Ss Disability Benefits. When She First Applied For Them She Had Zero Income And No Prospects For Employment (Not Because She Wouldn'T Look, But Because She Was Too Incapacitated At The Time). To Increase Her Benefit, She Put Both Of Her Daughters Down As Dependents When In Fact, Only One Lived With Her At The Time. Not Only Did She Do This With Ss, But Also For Food Stamp Benefits. The Federal Government Reviewed Her Just A Few Days Ago And Found That One Of The Daughters She Claimed Is Not Living With Her.
She Is Hysterical And Probably Rightly So. She Wants To Call The Investigator And Tell Her The Truth About Everything Come What May. I Have No Idea What The Penalties Might Be, But Recommended That She Seek Help From A Criminal Defense Attorney Before Confessing To Anyone Else. What She Did Was Obviously Wrong And I Don'T Condone It, But I Feel Sorry For Her Also. I Will Greatly Appreciate Helpful Suggestions Without Judgment. Thank You All.
She committed perjury and welfare fraud. In reality, however, most of these cases never go to trial because of the expense and difficulty prosecuting them. They save criminal proceedings for the serious cases involving large dollar amounts. In smaller cases, they simply advise the person that they need to pay back any money they received above what they were entitled to receive. They will also likely stop her benefits even if she would otherwise have been entitled to receive some money. They can garnish her wages and tax returns until they have their money back.
Child Visitation Fathers Rights.?
Im Taking My Ex Wife To Court To Get My Rights As A Father Set As A Court Order. My 8 Yr Olds Mother Will Let Me See My Daughter When It Is Ok With Her. Child Support Has It On Record That She Lives In Nj, But She Lives In Pa. I Recently Moved To Pa To Be Closer To Her Home In Pa And I Am The One Who Does The Driving Both Picking My Daughter Up And Dropping Her Back Off. Its 140 Miles Each Way. So When My Ex Wife Does Allow For Me To See My Daughter, Im Driving A Total Of 560 Miles. Will The Court Grant That She Meet Me Half Way Or Will They Make A Deduction In My Child Support Payments To Cover The Costs?
This all over the place with issues...
Neither of you have informed NJ that you moved to PA?! Big problem there as you BOTH agreed to inform the courts within 30 days of a change of residence... Also, you moved to PA to be closer but are still 140 MILES apart?!
I would have filed with court already... Typically, visitation is the sole responsibility of the NCP unless extraordinary costs/travel time is incurred.
You case would qualify in forcing the mother to either help pay costs or contribute to travel for visitation. I do not believe that child support will be reduced to cover the costs though.
If I moved from NJ to PA to be closer to work, my ex would have a field day and massive temper tantrum!!! I live 40 miles from him, both in NJ, in one direction and work, in PA, 40 miles from home in another direction... The distance between work and his home is about 45 miles... So obviously there wouldn't be a huge difference like yours...
Wow... And even though I am not responsible for travel time or costs for his visitation with our daughter I still travel one direction every week...
Sounds like court should have been contacted and a hearing should have taken place a while ago...
Anyone Know A Good Residential Anti-Insurance Lawyer?
Having Problems Agreeing With My Insurance Company On If My Home Is Covered For Damages To My Roof. I Say My Roof Was Damaged By A Storm After It Was Weakened By Critters That Were Playing On My Roof. The Insurance Company States That I Have An Old Roof That Needs To Be Replaced. Can Anyone Assist?
If the roof really is old enough that it would need replacement even if there had not been a storm or critters, then a lawyer cannot help.
If the "critter" damage was something ongoing over a long period of time, and was bad enough that the roof would have needed replacement even if there had not been a storm, then a lawyer cannot help. Insurance only covers sudden events, not gradual deterioration.
Basically, the only ways that a lawyer will be able to help would be if either (a) the storm is the only reason the roof needs replacement, or (b) the critter damage happened very rarely, and you pay a separate deductible for each time that critter damage happened.
Best Law School Options?
I Am Currently On Track To Graduate With A Ba In Accounting(Honors). From There I Plan To Attend Law School.
I Was Thinking Of Trying To Get Into Schools Like Harvard, But Worry About Cost. Does The Law School I Choose Make A Huge Difference In Terms Of Career?
With Cost In Mind Would There Be A Huge Difference Between A State University School Of Law As Opposed To An Ivy League School Like Harvard.
I graduated from Harvard Law School. When I was coming through, everyone who wanted to work in a large law firm paying top wages (which now would be $160,000/year) had multiple job offers from them. I was in the lower 40% of the class but I had job offers from those types of firms all around the country. It's still the same today, despite a much worse job market. So an HLS degree is a ticket to high-paying jobs, and even if you are terrible as a lawyer, you can bounce around from one high-paying job to others for at least around 10 years, and easily repay any law school debt. (Some people didn't want this, and they just found jobs in public interest organizations or the like, and others ended up clerking for the Supreme Court or other prestigious courts.)
Columbia U. has the best job record of any law school in the country since it's in a legal gold mine, NYC, and it's just easier for more firms to come to campus to offer jobs.
No state school even comes close to that employment track record. UVA, Berkeley and Michigan are the only state schools that have top law schools, and even significant portions of their classes don't get jobs.
Look at http://www.lstscorereports.com/national/ for the full numbers on jobs, costs, etc.
Finally, while where you go to law school matters less as the time out of law school grows (and your client base and skills matter more), going to Harvard or the like gives you a significant starting advantage in your career (and thus a significant starting advantage in growing your bank account).
But, please--comparing a typical state school to Harvard?
I Need Legal Representation, Free Or Arrangements Made?
Recently My Ex And I Agreed To Go Through The Tx Attorney General For Child Support That I Send For Our Two Older Children. I Figured In The 25% That It Would Amount To And Budgeted, Etc. The Oag Lady That Took The Case Decided To Take 65% Of My Income-Which Is Against The Law-Under A Clause. The Clause States That &Quot;If Obligor Intentionally Underworks Or Doesn'T Work At All, The Amount Can Be Based Upon A 40 Hr Wk. They Didn'T Interview Me Or Anything So They'Ve No Idea What My Intentions Are! I Need To Fight This For Two Reasons: 1) I Can'T Lose More Than Half Of My Income, And 2) For Anyone Else Who Has Had Trouble With Them. &Quot;They&Quot; Serve A Great Purpose But They Are Not Above The Law Nor Have The Right To Assume Anything And Wrongfully Take From Good Parents Who Are Truly Trying. Someone Pls Help Me
Well you have the right to disagree with the AG 's office. It is the judge who ultimately decides the proper and legal amount of support owed. I have never heard of an AG doing something this overboard. Do not sign the agreement! Insist upon taking the issue before a judge. If you have already signed it then that is a different story because then you need to get an attorney and try to modify the terms of the court order. You might also try to talk to the caseworker's supervisor.
