The majority of people do not think about finding a lawyer right up until they are in desperate need. The legal situation might possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a felony circumstance you need to be defended on. Firms require attorneys as well, regardless of whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or possibly unfounded business strategies. Tax legal professionals are also very helpful any time engaging with government difficulties. Just like doctors, lawyers have specialties. A huge, full service law firm has many attorneys with various areas of expertise, so hinging on your own legal issue, you can promptly hold on to the top attorney at law to meet your existing need without having to commence your search each time you need legal assistance.It is best to find a lawyer you can have confidence in. You want one with a good record, who isstraightforward, productive, and wins cases. You want to have confidence that they will defend you effectively and invoice you reasonably for their services. Occasionally a word of mouth from a buddy or business affiliate can be beneficial, having said that you should continue to keep your options open and examine all the firms accessible, simply because when you require legal help, you need it immediately and you desire the very best you can pay for.

Is There A Requirement Or Law That States Mandatory Breaks?
From the Dept. of Labor website: Federal law does not require lunch or coffee breaks. However, when employers do offer short breaks (usually lasting about 5 to 20 minutes), federal law considers the breaks work-time that must be paid. Unauthorized extensions of authorized work breaks need not be counted as hours worked when the employer has expressly and unambiguously communicated to the employee that the authorized break may only last for a specific length of time, that any extension of the break is contrary to the employer's rules, and any extension of the break will be punished.
Bona fide meal periods (typically lasting at least 30 minutes), serve a different purpose than coffee or snack breaks and, thus, are not work time and are not compensable
Only 19 states have mandated break/lunch periods for adults (and Illinois' only applies to hotel room attendants; Nebraska's only to assembly plants, workshops and mechanical establishment not covered by collective bargaining). Most all states have mandated breaks/lunches for minors.
Since you don't say if you're an adult or a minor, or what state you're in, I can't tell you definitively.
I Am Unable To Have Children, But A Friend Of Mine Is Pregnant And Is Giving Her Baby Up For Adoption To My Husband And I. And She And I Neither Know Where To Start In The Process Of Legalizing The Adoption When The Baby Comes. She Isnt Charging Me Any Expenses. Can Someone Tell Us What To Do? Any Advice Will Be Greatly Appricated
Congratulations to you! We adopted the same way!
However, each state has different regulations and you will want to contact an adoption attorney. This is a legal proceeding so it will cost "some" money. In our case, while we were in the process of talking with an attorney, children services' took the child and placed him with the biological grandparents in kinship care (portion of foster care). Because of this, our attorney suggested that we contact an adoption agency to do an "identified" adoption to insure that we had no problems with the state. It did cost us a little more money doing it that way, but it was definitely worth it. Even if we had used the attorney, we would have had to still pay to have a home study done by an agency and the criminal background checks, etc. Our state also required in home visits after placement to insure the child was okay. An agency had to do those too.
I would just recommend that you speak with an attorney or adoption agency to insure that nothing slips through the cracks. You don't want to have the state involved if you don't have to (trust me on that one).
Good luck to you and Congrats again!
If You As An Attorney Had To Chose To Practice Criminal And Family Law In Either California Or Texas...?
Which One Would You Chose And Why. I'Ve Heard That Attorneys In California Working Solo Make More Money And Are Happier Than Those In Texas. I Don'T Know.
I'm not an attorney but I do live in California. I am here due to circumstances beyond my control. I would get up from this computer, walk to my car and drive at the maximum legal speed to "Bum Fvck Egypt' if I could swing it. If you value anything like personal liberties forget California!!! I have been in 48 of the 50 states and a number of foreign countries. Aside from Massachusetts and New York I have never seen worse. I have reported power theft with no results. I have reported an habitual drunk driver with no results. A cop let a 16 year old thug steal his patrol car and kill two senior citizens. About half of our prison population is comprised of illegal aliens. Our legislators routinely spend twice what the state collects in taxes. One city has "Green Police". I have to go to City Hall this week and beg for a permit to trim my trees. A school crossing guard was killed by a motorist doing over twice the speed limit; the cure "Speed Bumps", enforcing the law was never even considered. We have a supreme court that routinely overrules the voters. And, the list goes on and on. There was even talk about some sort of toilet paper limit. If you come, do so on a round-trip ticket because if you are any sort of individual you will want to leave in very short order.
Now, on the other hand, if you are a very left wing type of individual who wants and expects your government to make every decision in your life you will love it here.
Which Is More Stressful: Handling Workers' Comp Claims Or Handling Bodily Injury Claims?
Please Explain Why You Made Whichever Selection You Made.
Any claims job is going to be stressful. That's the nature of the beast. The stresses felt by a WC adjuster and a P&C adjuster may be slightly different but I can tell you now...one's not worse than the other. They are two completely different animals. You're trying to compare horses to zebras.
I am a P&C adjuster. I choose that because the first claims job I was hired to do and subsequently trained to do was handle P&C claims. Had my first job been as a WC adjuster, then that would have been my specialty.
If you are looking for a low stress job...stay away from any type of insurance claims handling.
A Relative Of Mine Is Getting A Divorce And Needs Legal Advice......?
Ok, So, Yesterday I Get A Call Around Midnight And Its My Relative. Long Story Short, She Says That She Wants A Divorce But She Is Scared To Lose Everything. She Said That Not Long Ago Her Husband Started To Get More Verbally Abusive Around Her. She Said That She Has A Really Low Self Esteem Because He Calls Her Names In Front Of People And In Public Places. Stuff That Should Not Be Said, Like You B***** Or Stupid C***. So She Said The Police Came One Night As She Called And That They Ended Up Taking His Side, And Told Her She Needed To Leave The Apartment Because He Has No Place To Go And That She Has Relatives. Does That Make Sense? She Has A Child That Still Goes To School. So, She Said That She Thinks The Cops Took Her Husband'S Side, Because He Was Telling Them Lies That She Threatened Him And That She Was Hitting Him. Well, I Wasn'T There So I Could Not Prove The Veracity Of This Relative'S Story, Right? I Don'T Even Know How The Cops Could Do That, But Oh Well. The Thing Is That He Is Threatening Her Now And Saying That She Needs To Get Out Of His Apartment (Both Are On The Contract And I Know For A Fact She Pays For 90% Of Everything There) Her Husband Has Been Unemployed Since Lord Knows How Long! What Can I Advise Her To Do? I Already Tried To Get Her Shelter And Counseling Hotline Numbers, But I Really Think That This Guy Is The One That Has To Leave No? How Can She Get That To Happen When He Is Not Physically Hurting Her?
Yeah, Any Advice Would Be Appreciate. Thanks
Best advice you can give her is to see a lawyer. As for the police, they are very good at seeing through the BS. There are other reasons that she was told to leave and not him. You left, or were not given, complete information. BTW, when the police are called, a report is filed. Rarely is a female with a child ever told that they must leave.
