You can then narrow this list down through taking some time evaluating their internet site. There you will be able to find the amount of years they are practicing and several general specifics of their success rates. At this moment your list needs to have shrunken further to the people that you felt had professional websites plus an appropriate quantity of experience.

Types Of Lawyers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?
What Kind Of Lawyer'S Make The Most Money? ( Criminal Lawyer,Immigration Lawyer,Bankruptcy Lawyer Etc.)? And What Is Their Average Salary For The First Year Or Just The Average Salary?
There is no general answer for that question. The amount of money paid to attorneys fluctuates widely across the country - it depends upon the geographic area in which a person works, the type of area (urban v. rural), &, yes, the type of work. Also whether the person works in a firm, the public sector, a company, or is a solo practitioner. Finally, where a person went to law school & where they graduated in their class is also part of the answer.
To give you an example, some first year associates in Manhattan make more money than solo practitioners in the rural Midwest who've worked for years make in multiple years.
Bar Association Question?
I Work At A Gas Station In New York State, I Have To Id Anyone Who Purchases Beer Or Tobacco Products If They Look Like They'Re Under 30 Years Old. If They Can'T Present A Valid Id I Can'T Sell Them The Product.
Well Tonight A Woman Comes In Wanting To Buy Beer, I Didn'T Id Her Because She Was Clearly Over 30.
I Bag The Beer, Tell Her The Total And She Gives Me This Gleeful Smile Before Informing Me That She'S With The Bar Association And I'M Getting A Red Card Because I Didn'T Id Her. She Asked For My Name And Told Me They'D Be Out All Week Doing This.
Logic Is Telling Me She Is Full Of It Because I'Ve Been Working At This Place For Over A Year And Never Once Have I Heard Of This Happening. She Didn'T Say A Word About Getting Arrested Or Fined Or Anything Except For That Red Card.
I Need This Job So I'M Obviously A Little
Worried. I Just Wonder If This Is True At All?
The bar association deals with enforcing the community guidelines of lawyers, and as such, can only effect lawyers. Enforcing law is up to the police or other federal agency (FBI, CIA, etc), who can lead to criminal prosecutions.
The bar can only strip you of your legal legitimacy as a lawyer. They can still report you to the cops, but only in the same capacity as any other citizen.
If You Could Ask A Lawyer A Question..?
What Would You Ask? We Have A Lawyer Coming To Class.
Yes, I Know.. Why Are Lawyers Souless And Moneygrubbers Yada Yada..
I Was Looking For Something More Respectful And Insightful Into The Law.
Here are some questions that you could ask that are similar to what you are asking, yet phrased with more respect:
Why do you think some people have a negative image of lawyers, and what do you think should be done to correct the problem?
In order to correct the image problem that lawyers have, do you think the regulation of lawyers should be done by the legislature, or that lawyers should regulate themselves through a bar organization?
What do you think about billing clients on an hourly basis ($300 per hour, for example) versus billing them a contingent fee that takes up to 33% or 40% of whatever is recovered? Do you think lawyers should charge a flat fee for services instead ($5000 per personal injury case, for example) instead of on an hourly or contingency basis?
Do you think the negative image that lawyers sometimes have is a result of those bad commercials we see on t.v.? If so, do you think there should be stricter standards on these commercials?
Legal Advice On Shop Lifting?
I Used A Store Credit At My Job That I Forgot To Give Back To A Customer. Hours Past & Relized I Still Had It So I Used It. The Store Credit Was For $6 & Some Change. Well I Got Fired For It, And Agreed To Pay The Money Back Without Any Problem (Even Though They Tecniclly Already Had It Back Cause It Was A Credit). Now I'M Getting Phone Calls & Letters Saying I Need To Pay $925. That Sounds Rediculous! I Don'T Know How They Expect Me To Pay That After Getting Fired! I Can'T Pay It And I Don'T Know What To Do. Any Advice? Thank You.
Who is writing the letters? Do they come from your former employer? If so, you could call them and ask why they think you owe them that amount? If you don't think the answer is satisfactory, you should contact 9 to 5, a national organization for working women. They operate a job survival helpline. The information below is from their website and tells how to contact the helpline:

How Does A Lawyer Get The Referrals That Lead To Actual Clients?
I'Ve Been To Networking Events And Have Not Been Able To Get Clients Yet, Just People Who Take My Card And Say They'Re Interested Or Might Need Help One Day.
Well, the way it worked for me was that I happened to get into a certain incident, shall we say.
A friend of mine pulled out a card or gave me the number of a lawyer who had helped him out. So, that's networking. Do a client good, and he/she will refer you clients.
(By the way, the lawyer didn't help me out at all for my 'incident' really. I was still found guilty (and I was guilty), but I guess he at least smoothed the path and lined his pockets with $1,000 of my money. I would never go to court without a lawyer by my side.
I know, it makes me sound like a criminal - but no, it was just a foolish young adult thing. I have no need for lawyers anymore now that I'm 45 years old.
