Finding A Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will notice that there are loads of lawyers in your town that advertise that they can are experts in your form of case. This will make the procedure of finding one with quite a lot of experience a bit of a challenge. However, if you follow the tips below you will be able to limit your quest off to the right one in almost no time. The first step is to produce a list of the lawyers that happen to be listed in your town specializing in your needs. While you are making this list you should only include those that you have an effective vibe about based upon their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down through taking some time evaluating their site. There you must be able to find the number of years they have been practicing and a few general information about their success rates. At this time your list ought to have shrunken further to people that you just felt had professional websites and an appropriate amount of experience. You must then take the time to look up independent reviews of each attorney. Make sure to read the reviews rather than just relying upon their overall rating. The data in the reviews will provide you with a concept of the direction they connect with their customers and how much time they invest into each case that they are working on. Finally, you will want to meet up with at least the past three lawyers which have the credentials you are searching for. This provides you with enough time to truly evaluate how interested they are in representing you and your case. It is crucial for you to follow every one of these steps to ensure that you hire a company which has the proper measure of experience to help you the ideal outcome.

Can Someone Tell Me What Is Legal Aid?
I Plan To Divorce And What Is Legal Aid And What Does It Cover For The Divorce Is It Hard To Get??
Legal Aid is a free legal service. You normally have to qualify financially (be poor). They will not charge you for their legal fees but you still have to pay all the filing fees to the court.
Here in AZ, in my county, I qualified financially but they had way too many cases that were more desperate than mine, so they couldn't help me but they sent me a whole bunch of documentation on how to file the proper paperwork on my own.
Can Someone Please Name A Type Of Lawyer For This One?
I Want To Be A Lawyer That Fights For Property, Lands Etc.
Title Lawyer or specialist in Title Law
The Deed or Title of a land is what confers ownership.
Land Patent, Deed, First Title Deed, Final Certificate and Land Grants all fall under the same system.
According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_regist...
"In law, land registration is a system by which the ownership of estates in land, is recorded and registered, usually by government, in order to provide evidence of title and to facilitate dealing.
In common law countries, particularly in Commonwealth jurisdiction, when replacing the deeds registration system, title registrations are broadly classified into two basic types: the Torrens title system and the English system, a modified version of the Torrens system."
According to Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_patent
"A land patent is evidence of right, title, and/or interest to a tract of land, usually granted by a government (or in the US the federal, state) to an individual or private company. In the original 13 American Colonies a proprietor would grant land patents. Besides patent, other terms for the certificate that grants such rights include first-title deed and final certificate. In the United States, all property can be traced back to the first title deed and to claims document titles for land originally owned by France , Spain, United Kingdom, Mexico, or Russia.
A land patent is known at law as "letters patent" and usually issues to original grantee, and their heirs and assigns forever. The patent does not constitute title but is mere evidence of right to title existing in law."
Do Top Law Firms And Top Companies Pay Attention To Where I Get My Bachelors Degree Or Only Law School?
Do Top Law Firms And Top Companies Pay Attention To Where I Get My Bachelors Degree Or Only Law School. I Don'T Want To Go To An Ivy League College If It Isn'T Worth All The Work....
Each law firm is different. I suggest you do some "informational" interviews of people already working at the law firms you are interested in and ask them these questions. An informational interview ISN'T to get employment, but rather is just for information. This would direct you where you want to go and would be worth the time you put into it.
Please be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first.
>>>>>Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession.
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 vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. 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)
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors 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.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
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.............
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 field of >>>Healthcare! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that this is where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

Seeking Free Legal Advice. The Nky Bar Offers No Pro Bono Lawyers. Where Can I Get The Advice I Need?
I Live In Kentucky And A Decision Was Made Last Friday Reguarding Custody That I Need To Appeal But I Cannot Afford A Lawyer. I Am Happy To Do Footwork And Paperwork Myself But I Don'T Know What And By When?
As was indicated above, contact legal aid services for Kentucky. You also might investigate to determine if any law schools there have a legal clinic. Legal clinics are staffed by law students under the supervision of an attorney and offer legal services to the indigent.
PLEASE do not contact the listing above for prepaid legal, etc. Among other reasons, generally you can't get help for an existing legal condition, and the payments they make on your behalf to an attorney will not always cover the cost.
