Do you mean an estate planning attorney? Or one who handles estates after someone is dead - also known as an attorney who specializes in probate work (although usually an estate planning attorney can also handle the probate process too)?

Which Profession Has The Better Future A Lawyer Or An Engineer?
I Really Want To Be A Lawyer But All I Hear Is That Its Almost Impossible To Find A Job After Graduating. Money Is Really Not An Issue For Me I Could Really Care A Less. I Just Want To Know If It Will Be Ok To Go To College To Be A Lawyer Or Will It Give Me Problems In The Future As Far As Finding A Job. Or Is Engineering A Safer Thing To Do As Far As Finding A Job?
Lawyer or an engineer; Let me see, the last time I needed an engineer was… Well the last time I needed a lawyer was…
If I am an engineer, can I set my own hours of work or answer to a boss also if I don’t do a good job what can happen to me…
If I am a lawyer, I can work for a firm or by myself… One half of the people getting married today will need a lawyer tomorrow, The jailbirds need a lawyer, the people that own all those little stores and shops need them… Heck everyone needs a lawyer at one time or another; All I have to do is pass the “Bar” and I am a lawyer, I don’t even have to finish school and the engineer will need a lawyer. I get my money up-front and if I loose the case I still get to keep the money. Millions of people paid their lawyers good money and they still went to jail.
Where Do Comparative/International Lawyers Work At And What Are The Common Job Responsabilities?
I Am Interested In Knowing About The Common Job Responsibilities Of A Comparative/International Law Grad.
Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Be prepared for a lot of debt. Law school is very expensive.
Lawyer approx $150,000+.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)
If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the field of healthcare! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that this is where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

What Is Legal Separation?
In Regards To Marriage.
To be legally separated means to have a legal separation of your stuff and your credit and all the legal stuff that you would separate if you were to split up with the exception that you are still married. So, you would split up your stuff and any decision you made with finances or major purchases or legal moves one made would not be representing the other person starting from the legal separation date as far as credit and earnings for that time. Once you go into a divorce some things can change, but you both would not be responsible for the others actions during the separation. Most people are "legally sparated" when a divorce is filed until the divorce is final. It depends on your state and how it is defined in court.

My Husband Got Suspended With Pay For Alledgely Touching A Female Inmate In A Small Town..To Keep Things From Going Public And Getting In The Papers, He Was Asked If He Quit His Job, They Would Drop The Charges..He Told Them Get Papers And He Would Sign Them..No Papers Were Ever Brought Around, And He Is No Longer Getting Paid..Dont Know If Hes Still Under Investigation Or Not..My Question Is Do I Need To Hire A Lawyer That We Already Talked To, And Cant Afford, Or Do We Let This Go And Forget About It..Oh My Husband Is Innocent In All Of This, And They Have No Proof...We Are Good People And Getting Wrongfully Done..The Reason That We Are Waiting As Long As We Are Is Because The Judge Exec In Our Town Says He Is Going To Take Care Of It..Dont Know Who To Trust..Its So Stressful Living Like This And Not Knowing What To Do And Who To Turn To...
First of all, it will depend on where you live and just how crooked your cmall town is. (That is in no way meant to be harsh, trust me I live in a small town and work for the Sheriff's Department, so I know how politics rule the judicial system in small towns!)
Secondly, it depends on you and your husband's connections and any proof or written documents proving any wrong doing on the part of his employers or anyone with any political standing. If you do have connections, or a way to make someone listen to your side then this is the time to use it!
Apparently, they must have had some sort of proof in order to put him on leave, no matter if it were with or without pay. Secondly, if his pay has stopped, then it's because of one of two things. One: he is being suspended without pay because they are claiming to have found evidence of wrong doing on his part and this is his punishment. Or two: they have terminated his employment because they claim to have found evidence of wrong doing.
If your husband has any proof that he did nothing wrong, now is when he needs to use it. If he is being punish or has been fired for something he didn't do, he has grounds to sue. If he has no proof, I'm afraid you two are in for a rough battle, if you choose to fight it. I would contact a lawyer who specializes in this type of thing and discuss your situation. Many lawyers will work for free until there is a settlement or your case is found valid and you receive compensation. At that point their fee would probably be a % of the total amount you receive.
Another place you may want to contact would be your State's Labor Board. In my personal area, the labor board loves to bust small town offices for wrong doing. Most small towns get away with things that larger places would never even dare try. Everyone is too scared to go against people in small towns! Anyway, your labor board may be able to help you find discrepencies in the case that they have made against your husband. The Labor Board will work for your husband's best interest at no charge to you. That is why you pay your taxes, to fund these programs, why not use them to help you!
If your small town is anything like mine and you go up against someone with power, be prepared to have to relocate in order to find jobs or even have a normal life again!
So, my advice: think long and hard if you are willing to go up against these people. Secondly, think back on any evidence or even dirt you have on these people-dirt can silence any problem quickly- and then make contact with the people involved if you do have something! Thirdly, contact your local labor board and plea for their help! I'm sure they will be willing to, at the very least, tell you what to do next or give a name of a good lawyer! Fourth and final, contact a lawyer and file paperwork! But don't let this wait, most states have statutes of limitation, meaning time can run out for you to do anything! And tell him don't sign anything without a lawyer looking at it first! Good luck!
