Finding An Experienced Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will notice that there are numerous lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise that they can concentrate on your type of case. This may make the entire process of finding one with significant amounts of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the following it is possible to narrow down your research off to the right one in very little time. Step one is to generate a set of the lawyers which are listed in your neighborhood focusing on your circumstances. When you are making this list you must only include those that you have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their site. There you should be able to find the number of years they have been practicing and some general details about their success rates. At this stage your list needs to have shrunken further to people which you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate level of experience. You ought to then make time to look up independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure to browse the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The details inside the reviews will provide you with a sense of the way that they communicate with their clients and the time they invest into each case that they are working on. Finally, you will need to talk to at least the very last three lawyers that have the credentials you are searching for. This gives you time to actually evaluate how interested they may be in representing you and the case. It really is important to follow many of these steps to ensure that you find a person which includes the correct degree of experience to get you the best possible outcome.

Is There Free International Lawyer?
My Husband Is Now At Custody Of Fbi. I Need A Defendant International Lawyer But I Cannot Afford To
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
Go to your local Public Library. Ask the Reference Librarian for their "MARTINDALE-HUBBELL" - and/or on the computer www.martindale.com - to find an attorney based on practice, geography, etc.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR >>>>Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
How Can States Pass Laws That Go Against Federal Law?
I Was Looking At The News, And How 13 States Now Allow Medical Marijuana To Be Sold. These Places Are Becoming A &Quot;Safe Haven&Quot; For Drug Dealers. How Is It Possible That The State Can Go Against Federal Law That Marijuana Is A Illegal Drug And Make It Legal? And If States Have The Power To Do This, Why Not Make The Legal Drinking Age 18, Instead Of 21?
if you violate a federal criminal law, only the federal government (FBI or DEA with the US Attorney's offices under the DOJ) can prosecute you for it. If you violate a state criminal law, only the state government (District Attorney or State Attorney General with State and Local police) can prosecute. The same action can be both a Federal and State crime, in which case both or either can prosecute you. In this case, some States have decided that marijuana no longer violates State Criminal law. The States have no authority to supersede Federal law. The Supremacy Clause of the Constitution ensures that Federal law is above State law, hence just because a State says it is not a State level crime doesn't mean they can stop the Federal authorities from prosecuting you for a Federal offense.
So in these States, it is a Federal crime and the Federal authorities can prosecute. The State authorities cannot. In other States, it is both a State and a Federal crime and either one can prosecute. The State has no power to stop the Federal authorities from outlawing something, though the Federal government can prevent a State from outlawing something if it is within the authority granted them under the Constitution.
Where Do I Find A Good Free Lawyer?
My Husband Recently Got A New Job. His Previous Employer Is Refusing To Pay Him His Last Check And Money For Business Expenses. We Have Filed At The Dept Of Labor But This Will Probably Be A Timely Process...We Are Going To File For Small Claims Case But His Previous Employer Has Many Attorneys And A Devious Way Of Flipping Situations Around. We Are Sure That We Have The Proof To Win A Case But We Cannot Afford A Lawyer (No Pay Check-Remember?) What Should Our Course Of Action Be? Aren'T There Lawyers That Work For Free Until The Case Is Won? Thanks!
You like everyone else think that all lawyers are rich, so they should be able to take on all of these pro bono cases from people who cant afford a lawyer or believe they are rich, so they should not pay them.
I am married to a lawyer who had a sole practice for over 40 years and just retired. We were never rich, but many weeks his secretary made more then he did, since he has a mortgage, office to pay to live. Many of his clients never paid him, but he had been their lawyer for years so continued to handle their cases.
As for lawyers that work on a "contingency" basis, meaning we get paid if you win, are many. Look for personal injury lawyers that advertise, but you have to remember in those cases, the fee you pay when you win is FROM YOUR POCKET. Most of these contingency agreements will state we will get 1/3 or more from your winnings that they take out. So in your case, if you win, then the last check and business expenses are paid, but the lawyer will take his "cut" which means most likely you will end up with even less.
A lawyer cannot speed up a case and either side can continue the case or file pleadings to delay it.
Your best bet is to allow the DOL to handle and wait it out. At least he has a new job so not unemployed w/out any money coming in. As for filing a small claims suit, the outcome maybe the same and that takes time also.
Personally I suggest you call a lawyer for your legal rights. Many lawyers, including my husband would give you 1 free consult to see if this claim filed in small claims would be right or not.
