Many men and women do not think about finding a legal professional until finally they are in desperate need. The legal issue may possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust attorney. It may be a criminal circumstance you will need to be defended on. Businesses need to have lawyers as well, regardless of whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or possibly not fair business procedures. Tax attorneys are also beneficial when interacting with government difficulties. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A sizeable, full service law firm has many legal professionals with diverse areas of competence, so relying on your own personal legal issue, you can promptly hold on to the best attorney to match your up-to-date need without having to begin your search each time you need legal support.It is ideal to obtain a lawyer or attorney you can trust. You really want one with a very good track record, who isreliable, efficient, and wins cases. You want to have confidence that they will stand for you properly and charge you fairly for their products and services.

Anyone Have Some Serious Advice About Law School? I'M Starting Classes In A Couple Of Weeks...?
Please, Only Those Who Have Actually Gone Through Law School, Are Currently Enrolled, Were Massive Failures, Or Have Loved Ones In Law School....
Well, you decided to subject yourself to hell on earth - bullshit bootcamp - OK, first thing to keep in mind is that preparing for class and preparing for exams are two different things - and it is only the latter that gets you a grade - so make sure you prioritize as such. Even if it means not being prepared somethimes in class - it will be embarrasing - but who cares... Also, dont let classes like legal writing screw you grade wise - keep repeating the mantra - its only 2 credits - its only 2 credits ..it is a class thrown in to hose you up time wise - dont let it monopolize all your time - because it will ! dont sacrafice 10 credits for a measly 2 credits of legal writing. Dont beleive ANYTHING you professors say about how to do well in law school- they are a bunch of sociopathic misfits thatget their jollys out of watching darwinism play itself out - law school is truly a place where only the strong, smart and a$$holes survive - use the canned briefs - but use the good ones ( west high court case series if you can get it - when you take constitutional law - try to find the TIger Publishing - audio text tour - its a killer audio brief on the older Constitutional Law cases ). To kick a$$ on preparing for class - try to find the treatise/hornbook for your class topic that is written by your casebook author - they will always be a ying-yang kinda thing IE all the hypos posed in your casebook will be answered in the authors treatise exactly - dont waste time cognetly sucking your pipe while pondering the finer points to the law - you have no time for that -- cut to the chase with canned briefs and hornbooks. FOr example - Joshua Dressler has a hornbook, casebook and sum & substance law lecture CD's on Criminal law and Criminal Procedure - they are a very tidy integrated package. For contracts get the concise hornbook for contracts by Hillman / published by west - it is very excellent - I still use it .TO get you going on examsmanship - get the Flemings exam solution CDs for the various class topics - his criminal law and criminal procedure, contracts and torts CDS are excellent ( www.lawprepare.com ). You might also spring for his baby bar review course - for nothing else but his compendum of baby bar first year solved essay exams - IE it is a mountain of torts, contracts criminal law exams all solved and critiqued - they are on ebay frequently ..dont wince at my suggestions - law school is a complete shakedown financially- dont spare the bucks to get you your edge - hope this helps - good luck - OH - about legal writing - it IS important because this is really what being a lawyer is all about - also you need to have writing samples for future employers - so whenever you have take home assignments concerning memoranda, or injunction briefs, motions - do themfor yourself because you are going to need them when you start interviewing - they wont study them too close - but they want to see a couple .. FINALLY - if you think you are slipping behind after your first semester or year - take a reduced load by one class - just tell the law school you have personal business etc. Also- if you are concerned about the course load - get into the schools part time evening program - alot of full timers do this to benefit from the relaxed load - you can still graduate ontime - just will need to go summers ..
Where Can I Find A Texas Probate Attorney To Work Pro Bono Or On A Contingency?
My Grandfather Passed Away In February This Year. My 5 Yr Old Daughter And I Found Out A Few Weeks Later When We Went To Visit Him.
His Sons Hid His Death From Me And In The Process Cheated Grandpa's Friend And I Out Of Over $60,000! ... I Have Papers That Should Let Me Collect $40,000 Of That But I Can't Find An Affordable Attorney.
I Am To The Point Where I Would Hand Somebody $50 If They Could Just Refer Me To The Right Person! (I Would Give Them More If I Had It - But I Don't)
Call one or more of the law schools in Texas and find out who the Professors are that teach the Probate Law classes. One of them should be able to point you to one of their former students who might be inclined to help you, either pro bono or on contingency. A Professor might also give you some information to help you or might even decide to make your case a "class project".
Should All States Have A Law For People Who Want To Get Divorce Need To Get Counseling To Be Granted A Divorce. Yes Or No? Give Me A Good Reason Why On Both.
I think that people should get counseling before they get married. I'm sure that many would have never gotten married if they had counseling before marriage. It's the same thing about having kids. Couples that plan on getting married should be force to take a parenting course before they get married, and not just after they are married.
I don't think that once a spouse has applied for a divorce that counseling should be forced on them for a divorce to be granted. If a spouse is asking for a divorce then it’s not hard to see that the marriage is really over.
Does Anybody Know The Top/Powerrful Lawyers In Atlanta Ga?
I Want To Sue An Individual... I Need The Best Lawyer In Atlanta Regardless Of How Much They Gonna Charge Me...
Again, without knowing the area of law, nobody here can make an accurate recommendation.
If I had an important case, I wouldn't use any of the attorneys who advertise on tv. If you have no personal recommendations, get hold of a copy of Atlanta Magazine -- I think it was last month's issue -- listing the top attorneys (by discipline) in Atlanta. If they don't have it at your library, call the magazine directly to find out which issue you need, and order a back copy.
Attorney fees can be verrrry steep, so before you say, "price is no object,' you might want to find out what they charge. You may have to pay, regardless of the outcome of your case.
How Many Hours A Week Do Corporate Lawyers Work?
How Many Hours A Week Do Corporate Lawyer Work?
How Many Times A Week Average Do They Get Days Off?
Depends on whether it's in house or in a firm. If you work in a law firm, expect to average 60 hours a week over the course of a year. You'd be pretty lucky to consistently have one day off. If you work in a large firm, expect to work 70 to 80 hours a week. I have a colleague who literally has not had one day off since she started working last August. That's 10 months without a single day off, including Christmas, birthday, New Year's, etc.
If you work in-house, you work maybe 50 hours a week on average, and typically will have two days off.
Recommend Criminal Law Field?
A Friend Of Mine Asked About The State Of Criminal Law Field. He Is Considering Law School And Wants To Immediately Start His Own Solo Practice Upon Passing The Bar. Can Any Lawyers Or Paralegals Say Anything About This.
Can He Do This?
Is It A Good Field To Enter?
Will He Be Able To Find Clients?
Without Any Experience, Will He Be Able To Take On Cases?
How Much Will He Possibly Make Out Of School As A Solo Practitioner?
I Would Answer His Question, But I Have No Clue About The Legal Field.
Your friend needs to rethink this and consider another line of employment.
The law field is totally saturated and most lawyers after getting their law degree and then pass the bar may find no jobs anywhere;;;;;;;. So your friend thinks, well in lieu of finding a job in a law firm, I will just go solo and bypass finding a job in a law firm.
My husband is semi retired after practicing law for 40 years. He got a job in a firm when he graduated and after 1 year was made a partner and then 10 years later went out and practiced in a sole practice for over 30 years. But he did contracts, criminal, bankruptcy, divorce, custody, social security, personal injury, malpractice, anything that walked into the office that needed to be represented. That is how he learned and also got the experience and knowledge of other lawyers in the law firm that made him better.
In criminal, it takes special skills that require you to know the "system", which means the court, judges, prosecutors and such on what you can and what you cannot do. Many criminals expect you get them off completely, even though the best criminal lawyers in the US cant do it, depending on the crime. In a murder trial or with child molestations, you will get clients you do not want to take or aghast for what they did, but as their lawyer, you have to represent them to the best of your knowledge, once you agree to represent them. We had to take out our address and personal phone number out of the phone book for threats of past clients who claim they will be looking us up when they get out of prison. With no experience, does he plan to go to the police station or to court and look for clients? To get clients, you have to advertise, (costly) or get referrals from other past clients who recommend you.
My husband had only 1 secretary working for him and the cost to run a office cost him $6,000 per month. That was for the secretaries paycheck, rent, utilities, insurance etc. There were some months his secretary made more than him, since many clients did not pay their bills or was waiting for another case to settle. You cant drop a client when they don't pay you, since judges "frown" on this, since you agreed to represent you and if they "stiff" you, that's your problem.
So your friend needs to sit down and calculate the cost of opening an office, plus insurance, continuing education, and then think, how do you get enough from clients to pay those bills. Also have your friend look into advertising, since if no experience or starting out, needs some way to get clients into his office. But advertising is EXPENSIVE. There is one law firm that told my husband that they paid 6 million a year to advertise. Granted that was for a law firm, so would not be surprised that it could cost him thousands a month to advertise.
Oh and if he thinks about working out of his home, he is totally nuts, since if he does pursue only criminal law, does he want them all to know where he lives? He has to have someplace where he can meet clients that is not his home.
If he wants to go into sole practice, he needs to work somewhere 1st, then go out on his own. My husband has NEVER advertised, since all of his practice has been from referrals or prior clients who come back.
