Can A Corporate Lawyer Work As A Trial Lawyer?
I Am Still Going Through My Undergraduate Studies, But I Am Investigating The Career Of Law. So I Was Interested In Knowing If A Business Lawyer Or Corporate Lawyer Work As A Trial Lawyer As Well?
Yes, they can. But probably wouldn't due to time restraints.
The reality is the economy, which has dramatically changed. Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers.

Will A Lawyer Take A Wrongful Death Case Out Of State.?
My Brother Was Hit By An Automobile And Killed On The Scene In Another State. The Police Report Has Very Little Information. I Will Try To Get The Driver S Statement From The Sgt. That Handled The Report. One Law Firm Told Me That They Could Not Help Me Because There Are No Other Reports Available Even Thought The Police Report Says There Are Photos And Measurements Taken At The Scene Of The Incident. Do You Think The Police Will Give Me The Statement From The Driver When I Go To The Station Out Of State? Is It Possible To Sue From Where I Live?
You can make a public records request to the police department to obtain all of the reports and statements.
I wonder how you would have standing to sue for wrongful death. Generally, the children or spouse would have a basis to sue. Sometimes the parents would have a basis to sue. But a sibling? That's unusual - unless his siblings are his only next-of-kin.
No. You can't sue from where you live. A lawsuit (assuming there is a basis for a lawsuit) would need to be filed in either the county where the accident happened or the county where the defendant lives.
If A Detective Wants You To Take A Lie Detector Test And You Refuse What Will Happen.?
Do You Need A Lawyer To Refuse? And Can They Get A Search Warrant Just By You Refusing?
Tell them you would be happy to take the test... AFTER talking to a lawyer.
When they pull the, "What are you afraid of" thing, just say that if they don't trust you, why would you trust them.
And don't be afraid of saying no to anything a cop tells you to do. Ask point blank, "Am I required to do this under the law?" If they say yes, and it isn't, the entire case is gone.
I believe in respecting law enforcement. However, do not be fooled. They WILL lie to get what they want. But they have rules they have to live by. Use them.
Why Are Divorce Court Laws So Gender Biased?
I Am A Woman And It Really Annoys Me. I Feel Sorry For You Men Out There.
Because feminism has made such an excellent job of portraying women as victims of mistreatment and injustice, and men as perpetrators that everyone takes it for granted even when faced with proof that that's not the way things really work. My cousin has a wife who basically abandoned one son in her home country to come here.
She married him, probably for the possibility of becoming a resident in this country, and had a daughter with him. She has, however, been a lousy wife and even a lousier mother to their daughter. She does nothing around the house and leaves it all to him and the maid, she demands unnecessary luxuries that my cousin - even with his great salary - has difficulty affording, and she spends all her time out with friends. Spite that, for years he has done his best to provide everything she requests not only for them both, but ALSO FOR HER SON BACK HOME... and he has done so with no regret but a great cost to his financial stability and mental health.
Granted, my cousin is a F-U.C * K.I-N.G MORON but now that he is finally thinking of divorcing her, he knows that - unless he can prove in court that she has been unfaithful to him or something of the sort - he and his daughter are on check because the ever wise and brilliant family courts will never grant him custody of his daughter and will force him to pay ridiculous alimony in any divorce settlement. This is all great for the taker in the relationship, which has unquestionably been her, but lousy for him and his daughter (who's only seeming purpose in her life is to serve as insurance).
It sounds like a horror story and, believe me, for him it is. Unluckily it is also very real. His only option: to be shrewd. To restrict all cash flow and make her desperate so she will have to leave and hope that their daughter becomes such a heavy burden for her that he can eventually bargain for her. It is hard for him, since he has a kind heart and he loves them both, but that's the way it is. She is spoiled goods, like too many women nowadays.
Anyone Out There Know Anything About Probate Court?
My Fiance'S Mother Passed Away Last Week From Colin Cancer, She Didn'T Have A Will & His Step Dad Is Telling Him That He Isn'T Intitled To Any Of His Mother'S Esstate. My ? To All Is... Whats The Low Down On Probate? We Have A Lawyer. But We Want To Know What Are Some Things We Need To Know Before All Of This Gets Blown Up In Court. All We Know About His Mom Is That She Had...A Car In Her Name, She Owned Half Of The Home, And Half Of Her Huspands Truck. We Know That She Had Life Insuance, & A Retirement Plan. My Fiance'S Step Dad Is Also Telling Us That He Is Going To Get Rid Of His Mom'S Car. Is This Legal? Can He Do Any Of This Without Even Putting Anything Into Probate? Is There Anyone Out There That Has Been In This Same Situation That Might Have Some Advice? The Reason I Am Asking About All Of This Is Because My Fiance' Has Already Lost One Parent (His Father) 2 Years Ago... He Was Left Out Of Everything Because Of His Stupid Step Mom. Please Help!
Hi. I've been a legal assistant for 25 years. Please know the step-dad is most likely BS-ing you guys. No will from the deceased means your fiance may very well be entitled to a portion of his mother's estate, regardless if she was married or not. With no will, the law normally steps in and makes proper division of the assets of the estate. This can be a long, drawn out process. Each state may vary in what percentage a spouse gets if the other spouse has surviving children from a previous marriage(your fiance), i.e. perhaps the surviving spouse will get 50% and your fiance 50%, or it could be divided 70/30. If you have an attorney worth his salt, he should have explained this to you. The attorney needs to file for an injunction or bring a motion before your local court to prevent the step-father from disposing of ANY asset of the estate, until an inventory can be completed. If the step dad contests the motion on his own or with his own attorney, the court will appoint a guardian ad litem (as such a disinterested 3rd party that is an attorney, that will basically represent the deceased's interest/estate to review, assess and inventory the estate. Thereafter, again, according to your state's law, the estate will then be divided proportionately. Be advised that once the court orders the injunction or the motion is approved and a Court order is issued, there are sanctions (penalties) that can be instilled upon the step father for contempt should he dispose of any assets in the interim. As to things like cars, the court will probably order the vehicle be sold and again, profits would be proportionately divided. For insurance policies, who gets it depends upon who is listed as beneficiary of the policy at the time of his mother's death. It could be the step dad, your fiance or whomever his mother chose. Please don't feel alone, this happens all over the country and especially when "blended families" are involved. I hope this helps!
If Some Feels Their Civil Rights Have Been Violated Because Of Their Race Who Do You Call Other Than A Lawyer I Mean Like So Serious It Could Lead To A Big Law Suit Againt The Police Department I Have Contacted The State Govenor My Email But I Need Someone To Get Down To The Bottom Of The Problem Who Else Should I Contact? Who Is Over A Police Dept Does The Police Have Police For Them Who Make Sure That They Are Doing Their Job
If you feel you have what is called a 1983 Action (violation of civil rights) you should call an attorney first.
They take that type of case on what is called a contingency basis, which means that you do not pay them unless they win your case. Just make sure that theattorney has experience in practicing before a Federal Court.
As for who is over the Police Department, it would start with the Police Commission, then the City Council, then the State Attorney General.
