Best Country For Lawyer?
Im From Pakistan And Student Of Llm. Here Is No Future For Lawyers . I Wanna Go Any Other Good Country Where Is Easy Process To Go And Get Good Job And Low Expenses Plz Guide Me.
It's definitely NOT the United States. There is a huge glut in the legal field here with thousands of lawyers unemployed and unable to get a job. Lawyers are a dime a dozen. Going to law school in the U.S. is very expensive and graduates are not likely to find a job with a law firm for many years. There is absolutely NO future for lawyers in the U.S. About the only jobs that lawyers can get are as "contract" lawyers doing research for minimum wage.
My Boyfriend Killed His Friend During A Drunk Driving Accident. Will He Go To Prison? If So, How Long?
Drunk Driving Accident
Depends upon way too many factors to even guess: what state, prior record, circumstances of the crash, circumstances of the testing and arrest, whether there are other aggravating or mitigating factors, prior record, but mostly: how good is his lawyer?
In MA, for instance, only one in five drunk drivers arrested gets convicted, let alone jail time, provided they hire the "proper" lawyers. Until recently vehicular homicide in MA was a misdemeanor, as in "Oops, I guess I killed somebody with my car; where do I pay the fine?"

See the link below regarding Legal Aid of North Carolina's eligibility requirements. A potential client's immigration status does not appear to be one of the requirements. Since Legal Aid of North Carolina is a non-profit corporation rather than a government agency, its own staff would be responsible for determining whether a particular client meets its eligibility requirements. In other words, I suspect that LANC, like any other law firm, is entitled to choose its own clients. It may or may not receive government grants that impose requirements regarding who it can or cannot serve. In any event, I seriously doubt that you would have standing to complain if LANC accepted a client who did not meet its requirements. Generally, enforcing the conditions of a grant is the responsibility of whatever government agency gave the grant.
You can (and should) discuss this with your attorney, but I would imagine that he will probably tell you that it would not be to your benefit to pursue the issue of whether your daughter's mother is entitled to be represented by the LANC. Your attorney's time (and your money) would probably be better spent elsewhere.
The reason the LANC attorney reacted to your presence in the office the way you described is probably because there is a rule of professional conduct that prohibits attorneys from communicating directly with adverse parties who are represented by counsel. That rule is designed to protect YOU from the LASC attorney. If you are in the LASC's office talking to LASC staff, then you are putting the LASC's attorney in the position of potentially being in violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct. The LASC attorney did the right thing: She kicked you out of her office, and immediately contacted your attorney. That is exactly what I would do (and have done) if an opposing party suddenly showed up in my office.
Is It Legal To Kill Somebody Out Of Self Defense?
Like If Somebody Comes At You About To Kill You And There Is Nobody Around To Help What Are You Suppose To Do Sit There And Let Them? I Dont Think So.
Yes. Even in the UK, where legal defence of self-defence is notoriously distrusted by the public, it is a complete legal defence, the success of the defence results in acquittal, that it is acceptable that if you, or anyone else, is being attacked or the threat of attack is real and imminent, and you do something to defend yourself, or anyone else, which may have the unfortunate consequence that a would-be attacker is fatally injured, then you have committed no crime.
People though will try to test the law to the extreme. They will also try to find difficulty where there is none. People come unstuck when they attempt to use the legal defence of self-defence where they have exceeded its boundaries. It is acceptable to do what is necessary to end an immediate and real threat. It is not acceptable to do more than that. People have chased burglars up the street to exact revenge, and relied on self-defence, but it does not work in that scenario. A man shot a burglar in the back and relied on this defence, but again, it cannot work in that scenario either - a man who has his back to you is clearly not an immediate danger to your safety.
But a judge told a burglar, who was stabbed once in the leg by a householder, that he got exactly what he deserved. The limits of the defence, therefore, are clear.
Texas Legal Wills?
Does Anyone Know Of A Good Website To Order Texas Legal Wills From?
I can't give you any websites, but I do need to tell you that many of the websites which porport to provide you with do-it-yourself wills are practicing law without a license.
Those who provide you with a pre-printed form with blanks are doing you a disservice.
While it is LEGAL to write your own will, its extremely foolish to do so. The laws of inheritance vary greatly from state to state, and its very difficult for software manufacturers to keep up with the changes in the law... for often the change isn't enacted by the legislature but is a ruling by a court.
When buying a fill-in-the-blank form, you are not availing yourself of the knowledge and experience of an attorney. A simple will shouldn't cost more than $200 to $300, and you will save yourself and your heirs a lot of time and money and headaches.
For a referral to an attorney, contact your local or state bar association.
Foster Care Adoption Lawyer Questions?
I Deleted My Last Question, As It Was Poorly Worded.
We Are Foster-To-Adopt Parents. We Have Had The Child In Our Care For A Year. Both Parents' Rights Have Been Terminated 'Unofficially' By The State At Birth (Abuse/Neglect). To Make It Official In Our State, There Must Be A Tpr Hearing.That Hearing Is Scheduled For This Month. Once That Hearing Is Completed, We (Foster-To-Adopt Parents) Are Required To Find And Hire A Lawyer To Proceed With The Adoption Petition.
So, My Question:
I Know That The Court Determines When The Case Is Scheduled For The Most Part, But Will Our Choice In Lawyers Speed Up Or Significantly Slow Down The Process? Like, If We Pay More Money Or Seek Out A Certain Lawyer Who Claims More Experience/Expediancy, Will That Actually Speed Up The Process, Or Is It All Ultimately The Timing Of The Courts And Not The Lawyer?
Thank You For Any Insight You Can Provide!
If you live in a jurisdiction that falls within a Metro area where it is "just busier" and the court docket is full....then obviously the court can play a huge roll in getting the final hearing scheduled....
In my experience, the lawyer plays a VERY BIG roll in how long it takes. I have seen adoptions finalize within a week of my initial meeting to disclose information on the child/ren....and I have seen others take months; all due to the choice in attorney.
I would ask the worker which attorneys in your area they know of that has completed adoptions.....the worker is aware of some I am sure, whether they will tell you is something entirely different.
Also, you can pay a huge amount of money for a cRaP attorney or a very small sum for an awesome attorney. Their priorities sometimes are not yours so don't think more money=better quality/timeliness.
