What Is The Difference Between Attorney-At-Law, And Esquire?
An "Attorney-at-law" is simply one who is authorized to practice law. "Esquire" has no legal significance. It derives from the British peerage system indicating one bearing the rank above a "gentlemen" but below a Knight. In modern usage, is means a lawyer, but there is no law of peerage in the U.S. and all citizens are equal in the eyes of the law and so the claim of a title or rank is meaningless.
Why Would A Lawyer Present Litigation To A Judge During Sentencing?
My Daughter Was Found Guilty For A Class X Felony. Her Sentecing Was Postponed 3 Times. Her Lawyer Is Slow,,,He'S Going To Present Litagation To The Judge At The Sentencing And Also Have Family Speak At The Sentencing . Help! What'S Going On? She Was Interviewed By The Probation Department. I'M Just So Confused.
Your daughter's lawyer is going to present mitigation at her sentencing hearing. Basically, mitigation consists of family history, life history, etc. The lawyer is trying to present evidence to give the judge a full picture of your daughter and her life so that he can make an informed sentencing decision. My guess is he's trying to get the judge to grant probation instead of sentencing your daughter to serve time or, at the very least, is trying to get a reduced sentence.
If I Went To College For Criminal Law And Forensic Science For 4 Years What Else Is Needed For Secret Service?
Assuming the college was Regionally Accredited, that is sufficient to apply. For other requirements check: http://www.secretservice.gov/join/index.... and for special agents: http://www.secretservice.gov/join/career...
Any major is acceptable, but CJ, Computer Science, Sociology, Accounting, or Psych may stand you in better stead for most positions. However, GPA is probably more important than major. Those meeting the minimum requirements may not compare well to the best qualified applicants, and there are always more applicants than positions. The FBI likes lawyers and accountants, but they hire from various backgrounds, with at least 3 years of substantive employment (http://www.fbijobs.gov/). The same could be said for the Secret Service, their primary duties (outside of protection) involve financial crimes and counterfeiting. Any responsible employment may acceptable, but law enforcement may be beneficial (particularly investigative rather than patrol). Other federal agency job announcements should be available at https://my.usajobs.gov/login.aspx.
The FBI in particular needs people capable of investigating major frauds and conspiracies involving numerous business and technical occupations and professions; whereas, local police are more oriented to street crime. Federal agents must be capable of understanding and communicating at a level above that usually expected from patrol officers. Federal agencies are looking for people who fit in at all social strata, and the expectations are greater with regard to preparation of reports and affidavits. In my experience, state and local officers have their affidavits for search and arrest warrants written by prosecutors; whereas, federal agents write their own.
Being a military officer will normally be advantageous, and military service usually provides veteran preference in the hiring process. However, enlisted service will not necessarily enhance one’s prospects, unless in a specialized position or exemplary service is documented. Military police assignments will not necessarily provide an advantage over infantry assignments, and the branch of service is not necessarily important. Being a practicing attorney or accountant would also place one in a good position. Forensic computer expertise and language capabilities are valued in all agencies.
You are more likely to be successful if you do not restrict yourself to one agency. Moreover, agents get hired from other agencies regularly. If you have proven yourself in another agency (particularly federal), you will have an advantage for FBI hiring. Being a police officer may be helpful, depending on personal performance, assignments, and agency reputation.
In my experience, hiring decisions are made based on college GPA (above 3.5 is a plus), written examinations, physical fitness (possibly physical test results), work experience, possibly a polygraph, ability to communicate orally and in writing, foreign language ability, and graduate/law degrees. There are always more applicants than there are positions.
There are numerous special agent positions (see list below, not all have full arrest, search, and seizure authority), in what was and I assume still is the 1811 job series (1810 are unarmed investigators without arrest authority). There are also law enforcement related positions in the Dept of Homeland Security and other agencies, such as inspector positions or Border Patrol agents, that could be open to those with 2 years of college or less. And, there are federal police officers within federal agencies (e.g., Dept of Veterans Affairs, Treasury, Federal Protective Service). Agencies:
ATF, Customs and Border Protection (uniform wearing: Border Patrol Agent, Officers), DEA, Dept of Def, Dept of State, Dept of Homeland Sec (ICE, TSA), Dept of Labor, EPA, FBI, FDA, Fish & Wildlife (few positions, many applicants), Inspector General Offices within departments and/or agencies, IRS, Marshals Service, Secret Svc, Securities Exchange Commission, and each branch of the Armed Forces (some civilian, some active duty).
Apply at as many places as possible, and accept the first offer. Then, if that’s not where you want to be, keep applying to the agency you want.
Public Defender Or State Attorney'S Office Internship?
I Am A Recent Graduate Planning On Attending Law School Next Year And Have A Choice Between A Local Public Defender Or State Attorney'S Office Internship. Since I'M Not Yet A Law Student I Understand That I Will Be Doing A Mix Of Clerical And Legal Work. Which Of These Is Better For Which Students? For Example, If I Don'T Ever Plan On Working As A Prosecutor/Da/ For The Gov'T Then Should I Not Do The State Attorney'S Office? Is One Considered Relatively More Prestigious Than The Other?
I would recommend state's attorney because you'll be exposed to a lot more types of law there. Public defender is just criminal law, and if you don't know what you want to do, working with the state attorney's office will cover more legal ground so you'll get some different experiences.
One isn't really more prestigious than the other. Neither one will help you get into law school more than the other, and neither one will help you get a job once you're in law school more than the other. If you're sure you want to do criminal law (or if you want a more in-depth experience) go with the public defender. Otherwise state's attorney makes more sense for broader exposure.
California Labor Laws?
Where Can I Find The Laws On Full - Part Time Employees And Any Requirements? Also Any Laws Requiring Providing Medical Benifits.
I'm not a labor attorney but have had a couple of businesses.
If you're an early-stage start-up (with one or two employees), you may want to pay employees based on 1099's. That means the employee is responsible for all Taxes, Social Security, and Health care - you (the employer) pay them a straight hourly rate.
Otherwise, Ive recommended and used QuickBooks on-line service so they handle most of the tax stuff.
If this is your first company, I highly recommend SCORE (a Non-Profit Group) They are counselors to small businesses They are a resource (free and confidential) advice for small business / entrepreneurs.
Who Is Controlling The Lawyers?
In Chennai, The High Court Lawyers Are Brutally Doing Firing & Stoning And Distrupt
Jen, love the photo. The American Bar Association has little to no influence over lawyers. The State Bars of the several states control the rules in the state the attorney is a member. The Bar is in turn controlled by the Supreme Court of the State.
The federal bar is run by the Supreme Court of the United States. The ABA is just a club. Most attorney's don't even belong.
