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.

How Can Someone Get A Job With A Felony?
What Jobs Hire People With One Felony Record. Live In Illinois And My Daughters Boyfriend Has One Felony. He Had Probation, He Had Stolen An Electronic Item From His Familys House. They Had Him Arrested And He Received A Burgulary Charge. This Was 5 Years Ago And He Has Had Drug Problems And Arrests But No Convictions He Is Now Clean For Two Years And Can'T Find A Job That Will Give Him A Chance. He Is Truthful On His Application And Even Got An Interview But They Would Like A Felony More Than 7 Years Ago. Does Anyone Hire People Like This?
Yes, people with felonies can get hired -- it's definitely much harder than for the rest of us, and there are fewer job opportunities open to them (he can completely forget about human services jobs like schools, hospitals and nursing homes, for instance) -- but as a vocational rehabilitation counselor I've helped numerous ex-felons land jobs.
Here are the things he can do to up his chances:
1. Focus on jobs that don't directly conflict with the nature of the felony. If he stole electronics, don't try to get a job at Best Buy. A job as a cook, a mechanic, etc. will have employers who will be less concerned about the felony than a job as a security guard, retail salesperson, etc.
2. Get out in front of the felony. ALL employers will do a background check and uncover it. MOST employers will view it as a deal-breaker, and that's just reality. When discussing it with an interviewer, (a) acknowledge the felony and accept responsibility for it (don't make excuses); (b) focus on how you've changed and what you've accomplished since the conviction and (c) explain all of the reasons that you are not at risk of committing another felony in the future. SOME employers will be prepared to look past the felony for an otherwise well-qualified candidate. It's human nature to want to give someone a second chance when possible.
3. He needs to start rebuilding his resume and personal story now: lots of volunteer work, skill development and any employment he can obtain, even if it's really menial stuff. An ex-felon with a 2 year history of part time work at Wal Mart and a 3 year history of volunteering for Habitat for Humanity is a much stronger candidate than a just-plain-ex-felon.
4. Never forget first impressions: as an ex-felon, long hair, lots of tattoos and piercings and rocked-out clothing are not luxuries he can afford. Time to lose the piercings, cover the tats, and dig out the nice, button-down shirt and clean, pressed pants. Expressing his individuality will need to take a back seat for the foreseable future.
4. Network! A "cold" resume or application sent to a company, when it has a felony on it, will get ignored 99% of the time. Want to work at XYZ Company on the other side of town? Find someone you know who already works there, or a mutual acquaintance of you (him) and someone who works there, and arrange an introduction. If someone the hiring people at XYZ trusts vouches for him, he's more likely to get a face-to-face meeting and more likely to manage the felony issue more effectively than otherwise.
5. Be realistic. That first job as an ex-felon probably won't have the pay, hours, benefits, security, working conditions, chances for advancement, etc. that he's really hoping for, but it's a job. And in 12 months he'll be an ex-felon with a spotless work history for the past year, making him a much more viable candidate.
6. Be positive, patient and persistent. In this god-awful economy, it's taking top-notch candidates 6-12 months or longer to land jobs; again, it's simple reality that any candidate with a major strike against them (such as a felony) will probably take much longer. BUT IT CAN BE DONE.
Can My Father Who Is A Civil Litigation Lawyer In Ri Help My Husband Who Got A Dui In Ma?
My Husband Got A Dui A While Back, And His Court Date Is Coming Up Soon (Don'T Get Me Started About That, I Flipped Out). My Father Is A Personal Injury Lawyer In Ri (But The Dui Happened In Ma) And My Father Convinced Me Not To Get A Defense Atty, Telling Me That He Would Go To The Preliminary Hearing With Us And Work It Out With The Prosecutor. My Dad Has Ties With A Defense Lawyer In Ma, And Has Been Talking To Him About This, But I'M Starting To Get A Little Worried Since He Can'T Practice Law In Ma And Obviously Can'T Represent My Husband. My Main Problem Is That I Don'T Want Him To End Up In Prison, We'Re Not Really Worried About Fines And Stuff. Is There A Way This Could Work Out? Maybe If We Say My Husband Just Wants To Represent Himself? (The Court Did Suggest That He Get A Lawyer). I Guess I Also Don'T Understand How A Person Can Represent Themself But Another Person Can'T Represent Them, I Dunno. I Just Don'T Want Him To Go To Jail. Any Advice Is Appreciated! Thank You!
Yes but he can not represent him as his lawyer without being a member of the MA bar.
Texas Statute Of Limitations?
If Someone Was Sexually Molested When They Were 8 And The Molester Was 13, Is There Any Way I Could Still Press Charges?(This Happened About 8 Years Ago.)
According to the Texas State Statutes a misdemeanor case must be started within 2 years from the date of occurrence (link below). But, really you should talk over your particular situation with a qualified legal aid provider (link also below).
Art. 12.02.    MISDEMEANORS. An indictment or information for any misdemeanor may be presented within two years from the date of the commission of the offense, and not afterward.
Amended by Acts 1973, 63rd Leg., p. 975, ch. 399, Sec. 2(B), eff.
Jan. 1, 1974.

Child Custody Case?
Mother Has Been The Primary Care Giver,
Father Has Been In Prison For 5 Years On A Felony But Now Wants 50/50 Custody.
Wants To Use Mother'S Legal Status Against Her.
Will Judge Even Want To Hear About That During Trial?
You need to give some essential details here. In referring to the mother's legal status, do you mean she is an illegal alien? He can get her deported and the family court judge has no say in that matter. But it is more likely that the child would be sent to a foster home than custody awarded to a convicted felon father.
Are they married? Were they ever? Is there court-ordered custody agreement? If the mother is not a US citizen, her child has the right to citizenship in the mother's country. She can go to the consulate of her country and get her child a passport, and return to her own country with the child. Otherwise, she gets deported and the child is taken by child welfare authorities.
Type Of Lawyer? Well Paid? Corporate Or Patenet? Please Answer! 10 Points!?
I Want To Be A Lawyer. I Am Absolutely Positive About It And I Will Succeed, I’M Sure Of It. Not Because I’M Cocky But Mainly Because I Have A Very Strong Motivator And A Strong Drive And I Know I Can Do This. I Have Grown Up In A Environment Where Work Isn’T Fun. None Of That “Follow Your Dreams” Crap. You Do The Work To Get A Paycheck. It’S All About Your Family And Providing Them The Best You Possibly Can. So I Decided I Wanted To Either Do Corporate Law Or Patent Law. Both Make A Really Nice Amount Of Money. My Goal Is To Graduate From University Of Georgia With A B. Undergrad Degree And Then Get Into An Ivy League School (Columbia Or Harvard Or Yale- Those Are My 3 Choices But Cornell Is Good Too I Guess.). Which Lawyer Gets Paid More? Anyone Know? And If I Were To Become A Corporate Lawyer, Would It Be Better To Work For A Private Firm Or An Actual Corporation? Please Respond Back And I Would Honestly Love, Love, Love It If You Don’T Leave Answers Saying How Cruel And Horrible Lawyers Are. I Want To Be One, End Of Story. Get Over It. I Don’T Care How Slimy, Insensitive I Am. As A Girl, If It Helps Me Provide For My Family Properly, I Will Do It.
If you work for a large corporate law firm (for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_100_largest_law_firms), you will likely make $160,000 as a first year associate in a NY or LA office, regardless of whether you are a corporate or patent lawyer.
If you are a patent lawyer, you would need to pass two bars to practice patent law, the state bar and the patent bar. Most patent lawyers I know have a background in science or engineering.
Because at the start of your career as a lawyer, the differences in salary between the two types of law practices are negligible, I would choose whichever law you are more interested in. Are you at good at science and engineering? Then major in a hard science (chemistry, physics, bio) and go into patent law. If you are interested in businesses, then go into corporate law.
If you were to be a corporate lawyer, you should work for a private law firm. You can't get a job in-house at a corporation without actual job experience at a big law firm.

Are There Any Juvenile Lawyers In Mississippi?
Are There Any Juvenile Lawyers In Mississippi?
No, I am pretty sure all attorneys in Mississippi are over the age of 18.
