Finding A Skilled Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will see that there are many lawyers in your town that advertise which they specialize in your sort of case. This will make the process of finding one with a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the tips below you will be able to limit your quest on the right one in very little time. The initial step is to create a listing of the lawyers that are listed in the area focusing on your situation. While you are causeing this to be list you need to only include those that you may have a good vibe about depending on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their internet 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 point your list should have shrunken further to individuals which you felt had professional websites plus an appropriate amount of experience. You should then spend some time to lookup independent reviews of each attorney. Make sure you see the reviews rather than just depending on their overall rating. The data inside the reviews gives you a solid idea of the way that they interact with the clientele and how much time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, you should meet up with a minimum of the last three lawyers that have the credentials you would like. This provides you with the time to genuinely evaluate how interested they can be in representing you and the case. It really is crucial for you to follow many of these steps to actually hire a company containing the best amount of experience to get you the perfect outcome.

What Is Intellectual Property Law?
I'M Interested In This Field Of The Law, And I Would Like To Get As Much Information On This As Possible. If Anyone Would Be Able To Tell Me Some Of The Tasks Involved In A Job Within This Field I Would Really Appreciate It. Also Just Any Type Of Information On This. I Am Currently An Undergraduate Student And Right Now I Am Researching On The Different Fields Of The Law.
Intellectual property law is basically law that helps protect musicians, artist, writers, etc. IP can help you if you want to become an entertainment lawyer or if you just want to be an agent or manager. This law protects copyrights, patents, trademarks and any other related rights. Intellectual property rights give the creator exclusive rights to their creations. So, the creator can share their creation and the idea won't be stolen.
I'm not a lawyer but I am trying to go to law school. Then get a LLM in IP law so I can become an agent.
Can I Sue My Real Estate Attorney For Malpractice?
My House Sold. During The 5 Day Attorney Period My Attorney Signed Off On The Liquidated Damages Clause Without Conferring W Me. My Real Estate Agent Never Even Went Over The Contract With Me To Begin With. I Quit My Job, Put Contracts On Other Properties, Took A Job In Another City And The Buyer Backed Out On Me 2 Days Before Closing. Now I Have No Job And Gave Half My Furniture Away. Now The Real Estate Company Just Called Me And Told Me They Were Keeping The 5000 Earnest Money On Top Of It All!!! Many Attorneys Also Modify The Contract To Say No Sale No Commission. But Mine Only Agreed To Something Against Me. And He Was Recommended By The Real Estate Agent. So I Trusted All These People. If I Dont Sign The Termination Letter From The Buyer Releasing Them And They Wrote Clearly In That Letter The Earnest Money Was To Go To The Seller, Can The Real Estate Company Take The Money If I Dont Release It?????
Sounds like you made all of your decisions and took all of your actions based on the belief that the sale would go thru.
Real Estate sales are often 'iffy' and, unless you had a cast iron sales agreement with your buyer, your actions seem to have been premature.
If you HAD such an agreement, you may have a cause of action against the BUYER..
If you did not, did your attorney have your authorization to sign documents for you or to enter into agreements in your name (that is not a usual practice). If not, then you had an opportunity to read, review, and comment on all of the documents that you DID sign and that is the reason they have the right ot keep the ernest money.
Escrow will give the earnest money to whomever the existing sale of contract directs it. If you wish to contest that you are going to need yet another attorney... sorry.

Need Legal Advice For Something Stupid I Did?
Okay So Me And A Few Friends (Stupidly I Know) Threw Eggs At A Car And They Stopped Caught Us, Called The Police, Ect. So The Cops Took Our Information And The Guy That We Threw Eggs At Made Us Clean It Off With Our Sweatshirts And There Was No Damage Whatsoever To The Car. About A Month Later A Police Officer Comes To My House Saying The Guy Wants $400 To Fix A Dent In His Car And If We Dont He Will Press Charges. What Can I Do? He Lied To The Police And Because Im Underage Their Going To Take His Word Over Mine. Please Help Me.
Well since you're otherwise looking at a juvenile record for vandalism, I would pay the $400 and get him out of your hair.
What puzzles me, however, is how he 'caught' you. You say he caught you himself and then called the police. How did he 'catch' you? Unless he, himself, were also a police officer then he is not legally allowed to detain you. Any physical restraint of you or your friends on his part could be considered unlawful detainment, imprisonment, or even kidnapping depending on how he conducted himself. The fact that you were vandalizing his car doesn't make it legal for him to capture you.
If this is the case, I would have your parents threaten to report him to the police for unlawfully detaining you (a minor child) if he doesn't call the whole thing off. While you may risk a juvenile record by doing this, he risks years of hard jail time (trust me, as long as he knows this he'll cave).
Now if you waited around for the cops voluntarily (a horrible idea - if they aren't cops you can always run and its not breaking the law), then theres no recourse at this point: just pay him the restitution. But make sure you get a written agreement that confirms payment of restitution as releasing you from all other responsibility, otherwise he can continue to ask for money again and again under threat of pressing charges (more or less blackmailing you), and then still press charges anyway.
Seeking A New Attorney, But Highly Recommended Attorney Is In The Same Firm/Office.?
I Have An Attorney Who I Think Is Pretty Complacent And Not Representing Us As Strong Or As Aggressive As I Believe She Should. I Have Heard From A Judge Who Is A Friend Of The Family That Another Attorney Does Real Well In The Court Room. The Down Side Is The New Attorney Is In The Same Office/Firm As The First One... Is It Ethical And Acceptable For Me To Switch Attorneys To One In The Same Firm/Office.
Have you discussed this with your attorney? Your current attorney cannot meet your needs if you fail to communicate with him/her. Before heading down that path, you should at the very least schedule a meeting with the attorney and express your concerns. I can tell you from experience that it is not advisable to change counsel in the middle of litigation. Things get sloppy, even within the same firm. If after you express your concerns and see no improvement, you will still need to speak with your attorney about transferring the case. Some firms have a no-transfer policy and fire you as a client on the spot. Our firm allows this, but I know of firms that do not. They take it as an insult. Yes, there are pompous firms out there LOL.
As a paralegal, I advocate attorney communication. Tell him/her your needs, your concerns and give the attorney a chance to work for you. They can't do that if you just decide one day to fire them. If it doesn't work out, I would recommend speaking to both attorneys regarding the transfer of the file. It happens in our firm because each attorney does specialize in something different. I'm just saying don't get your heart set on it. Not all firms allow it and this new attorney may have too large a case load.
**CAVEAT** I have 1-2 users that intentionally troll my answers to do nothing but automatically rate my answers with a thumbs down regardless of how accurate my answer is. My answer is NOT LEGAL advice and contains information easily found through Internet research. The unauthorized practice of law is defined as giving legal advice and/or representation TO CLIENTS. My answer in no way forms a client relationship. I am not an attorney.
Paralegals are not licensed to practice in any state, nor are paralegals regulated by any legal body. Registration is voluntary in a few states. Please do your research and know more about the paralegal profession before accusing anyone of committing UPL or ignorantly stating that a paralegal license (which no US paralegal has because it does not exist) or education can be revoked.
Living In Southern California And Need A Divorce Lawyer But Cant Afford One?
Ok This Is For A Friend But Not Me.
She Is Attempting To File For Divorce But The Paperwork Is To Confusing And She Also Cannot Find Her Now Ex. She Cant Afford To Pay For Her Legal Services Her Self, And She Has Also Attempted To Go To The Local Self Help Center At Our Court House But They Dont Do Much Else Then Give Her The Paperwork And Tell Her To Refill It Out. What Other Resources Does She Have? She Is Located In La County.
Have your friend call up local lawyers and explain her problem and ask them what it would cost to just have them do the bare minimum and just tell her what she needs to know.In fact show up and ask in person ..they could be sitting there bored..and knowing they are not going to make a fortune doing nothing might just take the five or ten Min's to help her. Normally an attorney would charge by the hour, for advice or instructions , but that is also in an ongoing relationship. I think she could find one that was willing to just charge her a small fee to file papers for her. The reason I say that is that is exactly what I did...and I found a lawyer who did it for me or i should say told me what to do ... by the way...he only charged me 76 dollars..I too was in L.A. co...my ex was also missing ..so a fee for an ad in the newspaper will be needed ..not much!!..and I guess that is very nice of a person.
Hope you can be as lucky!!!
ps. if your friend cannot even afford less than a hundred dollars for a serious thing like divorce ..she has much bigger things to worry about than a divorce.This is not a put down in any way just comon sense. I wish her the best!!
