Listed here are three important methods to understand that you've hired the right lawyer: 1. They Concentrate On Your Kind Of Case What the law states is usually tricky and that requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you need an attorney, search for individual who handles the challenge you're facing. Even though a family member or friend recommends you make use of a good they know, once they don't use a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. As soon as your attorney is undoubtedly an expert, specifically in the trouble you're facing, you understand you've hired the right choice. 2. The Lawyer Features A Winning Record Based on the circumstances, it could be difficult to win a case, especially if the team working for you has hardly any experience.

Can You Be A Prosecuting And Defense Attorney?
Not In The Same Case, Of Course! Lol (Although That Would Be Interesting)
I'Ve Been Watching A Lot Of Pheonix Wright (Not Playing, Because I'M Poor) Games Lately, And I'Ve Just Been Wondering If You Could Have Both Jobs. Ie. Sometimes You Defend And Other Times You Prosecute.
Sorry If This Is A Weird Question, This Is What I Think About.
It would be impossible to be both a prosecutor and defense attorney in the same jurisdiction at the same time. Ethical obligations would not allow it. As a prosecutor you would be privy to information that a defense attorney would not normally be privy to, and vice versa.
Generally, being a prosecutor is a full time job that would not allow you to be a defense attorney as well. However, there are part-time prosecutor positions that afford attorney's the opportunity to do private work on the side. Most often, those part time prosecutors practice civil law as well (ex. wills, estates, elder law, etc.).
It is conceivable that one could be a part time prosecutor in one jurisdiction and do some criminal defense work in another jurisdiction. I guess one could work part time as a US attorney, prosecuting federal crimes and still do some private criminal defense at the local level, for example.
Ok, I Was Arrested On October 3Rd For Domectic Violence And Possesion Of Analogues, The Analogue Was Xanax, Which Was Given To Me By My Mother For A Panic Attack, But The Police Took Me In For That, Which Is Understandable Due To It Not Being My Prescription, Because Mine Ran Out And Wasn't Filled Yet, But The Domesti Violence Was For Me Pushing My Father A Month Before, The Officers Asked If I Ever Done Anything And My Father Just Said He Pushed Me, And Said It Was A Month Prior, But They Still Arrested Me For It, Is It Legal To Do So? Or What? I'm Now On Probation For A Year, Pleaded No Contest For The Possession, Which Was Dropped To Attempted Possesion And Plead Guilty To The Domestic, Hich Will Now Remain On My Record, Any Help To Resolve This And Possibly Have It Removed Would Be Greatful.
Well, it is a little too late to figure out what you can do now as you've already plead and you're on probation. They can arrest for a push or a shove a month prior, but it's not typical unless your dad wanted to press charges. (At least that's what I've experienced here in CA-- there needs to be visible proof something happened like bruises or scratches.) You should talk to a lawyer about the possibility of getting your record sealed or expunged; if you don't currently have one, you can try the Legal Aid Society. Word to the wise-- law enforcement prosecutes elder abuse just as fiercely as child abuse in some areas, and it doesn't have to be physical violence (financial abuse counts as well) so you may want to either improve your relationship with your dad or stay away for a bit.
Can Anyone With Law Office Experience Answer This???
I Worked In A Small One-Lawyer Law Office Over The Summer, Before I Quit In Frustration. It Was My First Legal Experience. I Really Liked Learning The Law Stuff...But I Didn't Care Much For The Place I Worked. The Lawyer Was Only A Couple Of Years Out Of Law School, The Office Was Chaotic And Disorganized, He Was In Deep Financial Trouble, Had More Cases Than He Could Handle-Yet Was Taking On More.
The Office Was Being "Managed" By His Ditsy, Catty, 20 Year Old Receptionist That Came To Work Every Day In Jeans With Her Fat Boobs Almost Busting Out Of Her Shirt....Ugh So Tacky. He Showed Me How To Do Default Judgement Packets One Day, And Then The Next Day I Was Hearing That I Wasn't Doing Them Fast Enough, And I Should Be Churning Them Out At The Rate Of His Experienced Paralegal. He Would Go Into The Network And Do Stuff That Would Make Us Loose Important Data Like Calendar Dates....Then Get Mad That The "Work Wasn't Done".
Is This A Typical Law Office Experience? I Really Am Interested In Legal Assisting, But Not If Most Offices Are Like That One.
I've never worked in a law office but have heard that most lawyers are rigid and tend to have an obsessive-compulsive personality as in wanting everything to be just so (as opposed to obsessive-compulsive anxiety disorder). Law offices are said to be fast-paced too. As for legal assisting or paralegal work, I'd asked my friend's mother who'd worked at a law firm in human resources, and she'd said that most law offices prefer a paralegal that has a bachelor's in 'something' (and most likely graduated from aba approved program). Several years ago, I spoke with a lawyer about paralegal and he said that he could instead merely hire a law student as an intern and not have to pay job benefits.
How Many Presidents Have Been Defense Lawyers?
I know Lincoln and Adams both did some criminal defense work, beyond that, I'm not sure who else, if anyone, worked as a defense lawyer and later served as President.
It's likely that most 19th century presidents that were lawyers probably did criminal defense work, as back then most lawyers were general practice attorneys, meaning they would take any legal work that needed to be done, as opposed to having a specialty within a large firm.
Do I Have A Legal Case For Medical Malpractice?
My Father Recently Had A Stent Put Into His Artery Leading To The Heart. The Doctor Performing This Procedure Confessed To My Mother During A Post Procedure Meeting That He May Have Done More Harm Than Good. He Put The Stent In And Then Used A Filter But, The Filter Caused The Stent To Collapse. Basically, Rendering The Stent Useless And There Is No Other Way To Remove The Stent Of Have It Replaced Because Of A Prior Operation To His Heart.
Do I Have A Legal Case For Medical Malpractice?
No. Under absolutely no circumstances would YOU ever have a legal case for malpractice over a medical procedure performed on your father.
But if you are asking if your FATHER has a potential claim for medical malpractice the answer is probably not - but nobody can say for certain based on the teeny tiny amount of information you have provided.
Not getting the best outcome and/or not getting a good outcome does not mean a doctor has committed medical malpractice. Medical procedures are NEVER guaranteed. And I can guarantee that your father signed a whole bunch of forms before he went in for the surgery that acknowledged the surgery was not guaranteed to be successful and even acknowledged the possibility of death during the procedure or after the procedure.
To rise to the level of malpractice a doctor has to do something that no other doctor would have done. So if ANY OTHER doctor would have inserted the stent and then used a filter (which seems quite likely), then this doctor did not engage in an act of malpractice. And the fact this doctor freely informed your mother that the procedure failed and did more harm than good leads me to believe that this doctor is not at all concerned about being accused of malpractice. (Doctors who genuinely screw up generally go into CYA mode and don't admit or confess to any wrongdoing.)
I'M Wondering, Are There Any Lawyers Or Law Experts Out There That Can Assist Me With Some Legal Questions?
Last Night I Was Rear Ended In An Intersection, And The Driver Proceeded To Flee The Scene Of The Accident.
