What Kind Of Education Do You Have To Have In Order To Become A Lawyer? Describe The Work Ecthic? Also A Daily Day At Work For A Lawyer. Is It A Fun Or Interresting Type Of Job? Would You Consider Practicing Law Or Taking Up Journalism Is You Had The Choice?
I am a trial lawyer. Most days I get to work at about 9 am and leave between 6 pm and 8 pm. I start the day by checking phone messages, emails and mail and see if I need to respond to any of those immediately. Then I cover my hearings and depositions, etc. for the day, look at reports or projects I have to do for upcoming meetings, mediations, etc. I like my job but it is stressful and I get paid to worry about my client's problems so they don't have to. Solving their problems is rewarding but the "business end" of the practice - managing staff, juggling lots of projects at once with staff who tend to chat and be lazy when I am not around, and billing, and having to supervise other attorneys and make sure that assignments I gave to others actually got done isn't something I really like. If I had it to do again, I would rather be a trauma surgeon or an anesthesiologist b/c they really make such a difference in people's lives (more than moving paper). While I love my trials, that is a small part of my actual trial practice and like one of the other attys said, most of my time is spent analzying and summarizing information and giving adjusters advice on what I think we should do with a case and how much it's worth.
Finders Keepers Law?????????????
I Left My Ipad In A Classroom And The Kid Who Took It Claims He Is Keeping It And Refuses To Give It Back. The Ipad At The Time Was Over 1,000 And Is Considered Grand Larceny. It Has Been 3 Days Since He Took It. I Contacted Police, Etc. But Is This A Felony? Like Theft?
It depends on how the law is written. He certainly does NOT have the right to keep it. Finders keepers is not a law.
He knew it wasn't his property, so he had no legal right to take it. I certainly sounds like it would be a theft. But that's up to the police and district attorney.
I certainly would sue him in small claims for the return or the value of the thing. Just realize that you will only get used value, not the cost of buying a new one.
Also, if you had person information - bank accounts, social security, etc. on it, then you need to set up a fraud watch. Your bank can help you with that.
My 15 Yr Old Daughter Wants To Run Away Because Her Mother Wont Let Me See Her. Can I Legally Go Get Her?
I Am In The Beginning Of A Custody Battle For My 15 Year Old Daughter In The State Of Maryland. My Ex ( We Were Never Married) Has Not Let Me See Or Talk To Her For The Past 4 Months. She Finally Called Me Last Night And Told Me She Is Running Away Because She Can'T Stand To Be At Her Mother'S House Any Longer Due To Neglect. I Can'T Afford A Lawyer And Have No Clue What My Rights Are. I Contacted Cps Today And They Said They Were Not Allowed To Give Me Any Advice But I Could File A Complaint. My Daughter Stated That If I Don'T Come And Get Her She Will Run Away And Nobody Will Know Where She Is. Can I Legally Go And Get Her? Please Help. Thank You!
If there is no custody agreement in place, and especially if you are not recognized as the father, you could be charged with kidnapping or custodial interference. If you are concerned about your child's welfare, you could file a complaint with CPS. If you have to borrow money, or get a second (or third) job, you should retain a reputable attorney specializing in family law. You may also be able to contact your local legal aid office, which may be able to provide low-cost legal representation.
Now That Tsarnaev Has Gotten The Death Penalty, News Is Saying His Attorney Will Be Appealing For Over A Decade. He Will Sit On Death Row?
For A Few Decades.
Who Pays His Attorney Fees? Tsarnaev Isn'T Paying A Cent. So Who Does? Is He A State Attorney? Does That Mean Taxpayers Pay His Fees? If So, That'S Not Fair.
Yes, the taxpayer ends up paying for his attorney. And for the cost of the court and judges hearing the appeals. The news is right - because almost endless appeals are allowed, the average prisoner sentenced to death is on death row for over ten years, and more die there than ever get executed. Fun fact I discovered when I was looking at this earlier - since the death penalty was reinstated for federal crimes in 1988, 74 have been sentenced to death but only 3 have been executed. The rest have either died or are still appealing, at YOUR expense.
This is a reason often given for opposing the death penalty, that because of the legal costs, it's actually cheaper for taxpayers just to sentence him to life without parole.
It makes me wonder if the US actually believes in the death penalty. Why doesn't it USE it more often, or doesn't it trust its own courts?
I'm British and what we did before abolishing the whole thing 50 years ago was allow only three appeals and six weeks at most to make them. If they failed, you hanged (the one and only method we used was long drop hanging) at most six weeks after the judge passed sentence. By the way, I see what your religion is... if a murderer didn't appeal and wasn't reprieved, the execution would be three weeks after sentence, traditionally to allow three clear Sundays for him to make peace with God. We are an officially Christian country (well, the England part is) so that was the way. It is still the law that every English prison must have a Church of England chaplain and if you happen to be Catholic or something else, there will be provision for you too. For Catholics, there will be a priest to say Mass every week.
If you can't get it right after a trial AND three appeals, you never will, and we never noticeably hanged more of the wrong people than the US currently executes. There wasn't even an argument about the method - the measured long drop is VERY quick and kills the prisoner of a broken neck. It was just the fact that just occasionally courts DO get it wrong that caused Parliament to abolish the death sentence for murder - is killing someone by mistake EVER right? What we now have is a mandatory life sentence, with the possibility of a whole life term (i.e. without parole) if the crime deserves it.
I suspect that if Tsarnaev had done what he did in England, a whole life term would have been the sentence. I say that because of the Lee Rigby case - he was a British soldier who was hacked to death in the street by two fanatical Muslims a couple of years ago, just because they wanted to "get their revenge" on the army for what it is doing against al-Qaeda etc. One got a whole life term, the other got life with a minimum of 45 years - which means he's going to be about 70 before he even gets considered for parole.
There are serial killers who committed suicide in prison rather than face the rest of their life there. They thought death was the easy way out. Isn't that another thought about the death penalty?
Will Johnny Edwards Go To Jail?I Didn'T Think Ignorance Of The Law Was Excusable Even For Lawyers?
&Quot;I Did Not Know It Was Wrong Or Against The Law To Use Campaign Funds For Personal Use.Heck I Was Not Trying To Hide My Pregnant Girl Friend My Friend Was&Quot;Shucks Who Do You Think I Am A Sleaze Bag?Heck I Almost Got To Be The Vice President Of This Country, 2Nd Most Powerful Person In The World Now Does That Sound Like I'D Do Something So Low Down As That?&Quot;
Ignorance of the law is no excuse, but this particular criminal statute specifically requires knowledge that what you were doing was an illegal use of funds.
I think he is being targeted because he did something horrible and everyone hates him (3% approval rating, literally 97% of the country hates him) so a Republican prosecutor looking to make a name found a bogus way to turn it into a crime before leaving the US Attorney's office to run for his own political office. Now his replacement is left holding the bag on a weak case that is almost impossible to prove. Maybe Edwards did break the law, but I don't think the evidence proves it. It is VERY difficult to prove the charges they are bringing here which is why cases like this are almost never tried.
Im 18 And Was Pulled Over And Blew A .13 And Was Charged With A Dwi In New York... What Am I Looking At?
Depends alot on what county your in many counties will offer you a reduced sentence of DWAI which is a traffic violation rather than a criminal offense. Even with that you are facing a fine, a suspended license, having to go to a 12 week class, victims impact panel. If you work they will allow to get a conditional license to go to work and a couple hours of week to take care of personal stuff. Your first task is to find a lawyer that specializes in DWI defense, trust me it is worth it. Also, you need to not ever let this happen again if you have a drinking problem or if it was just bad luck you need to assure never letting it happen again. Because even if you get the DWAI and then get another alcohol or drug related offense within 5 years you will get a felony DWI which is a whole new world of punishment. Good luck.
This is the law of New York State.
