The majority of individuals do not think about choosing a legal professional until they are in desperate need. The lawful difficulty may possibly be personal, like family law, for a separation and divorce or if you are searching for a bankrupcy or trust legal professional. It may be a criminal case you need to be defended on. Organizations require law firms as well, regardless if they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unjust business practices. Tax lawyers are also very helpful any time coping with government challenges. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A sizeable, full service law firm has many legal representatives with various areas of experience, so hinging on your individual legal issue, you can promptly hold on to the perfect lawyer to match your current need without having to commence your search each time you need legal support.It is most effective to obtain a legal professional you can rely on. You want one with a very good record, who ishonest, reliable, and wins cases. You need to have confidence that they will represent you accurately and invoice you reasonably for their services. Occasionally a recommendation from a buddy or business affiliate can be valuable, however you should keep your options open and review all the firms accessible, for the reason that when you want legal support, you need it quickly and you would like the very best you can manage to pay for.

Question About Work Laws And Ethics?
I Have A Supervisor At Work Who Has Seen That I Own A 2 Way Radio That Can Be Purchased From Any Walmart Or Supply Store. It Is One With The 25 Mile Range Cobra Band.
Once She Seen This She Began To Tell Me It Is Against Company Policy For Me To Own That Kind Of Radio Or Any Radio That Has The Ability To Operate On The Same Company Frequency. The Frequency Is So Common It'S Funny.Mcdonald'S Uses It. Channel 2 With No Subcode Or Digital Protection On It.
She Proceeded To Tell Me Possession Of This Radio Even Off Company Property In My Home Is Grounds For Termination.
I Know This Isn'T True But Wat Are The Options That She And I Both Have?
Can She Fire Me For Having A Radio That Can Be Purchased By A 5Yo At Walmart. If She Does Terminate Me Or Punish Me What Options Do I Have?
In America we are so free that we get to be unemployed if we dont' want to comply with the most inappropriate crap. The law in 49 states is that we don't have any right to expect to be kept on our jobs or to be discharged for only good reasons.
First thing I'd ask her to show you the policy. Of course there isn't one. And that is likely the point, she's got something against you and you will probably end up getting fired if you work for her. So I'd get the resume up to date and start looking; you are more likely to be hired if you still have a job than if you don't.
Second point, you can be fired for any reason or no reason, as long as it is not a legally discriminatory reason. Refusing to divest yourself of a radio at work would qualify. As to firing you for having at home...sad to say, probably. You can be fired for smoking. Anywhere, anytime. You can be fired because the boss doesn't like your politics or your car. You can be fired because you eat green salads if the boss doesn't like that.
The question would really be, what would your corporate HR dept say? They probably would not agree with this kind of thing. Do you have recourse to them? Start there if you do.
Now IF you got fired you 'd have a pretty good case that it was not termination for good cause, esp if it was because the radio was left at home not on the premises. So you would be entitled to unemployment in most cases. But refusing to comply with a work related order or company policy would be termination for cause.
Legal Question About Custody?
My Friend Has 100% Full Custody And Pshyical Custody Over Her Two Children. But The Father Only Has Visting Rights. She Wants To Move Out Of State For A Freash Start. Is She Allowed To Move Out Or Is She Not Allowed Due To The Father. Father Has A History Or Mental Illness In Out Out Of Hospital. Domestic Violence.
Ok FULL custody is a misnomer, it is called sole custody and usually in joint custody the noncustodial parent (the not living with the kids) has visitation rights.
The difference between sole custody and joint custody is usually found in what rights each parent has. for example if he has no right to say anything about education, religion, doctors and such, then she most likely would have sole custody. if she has to allow him a say in those things it is generally joint custody.
Either way, there iwll be rules for moving in the decree. it will probably be in a clause or section soemthing about geographic restrictions.
antoher way to tell if it is a standard custody agreement then there will be two set of visitation guidelines. those for parents residing within 100 miles of each other and another for parents residing more than 100 miles from each other.
She should read her custody order and seek the advice of an attorney if after reading it she still doesant know the answer.
Adopting My Grandson, Who Lives In Another State. I Need Legal Advise Can Anyone Help Me?
My Daughter Wants Me To Adopt Her Son, A Dna Test Showed That Her Boyfriend Is Not The Father. His Mother Has Been Awarded Temporay Custody Until Later This Month. My Exhusband Remarried And Petitioned The Court To Be A Foster Parent So He Would Have State Funding. My Daughter Wants Me To Adopt My Grandson Who Is Now 1 Year Old, And I Need Legal Counsel To Assist Me, I Dont Have Much Money. But Work Very Hard And I Want To Do This. They Reside In Another State, Do I Get Legal Help Here Or There? Would Legal Aid In That State Help Me? I Have Two Weeks Before Court Date, Any Advise?
I am not a lawyer, but I've seen similiar cases...
First off, you need to have a Home Study done, by someone
from the local DHS Office nearest you. (This is a require-
ment anyway, for when anyone is bringing a child into their
home, by court action.) This will be one step, ahead, for you.
Another thing. Who is the father of the baby? I would think
that the birth father, could have something to say about the
situation, too, and if he doesn't, then the birth father's parents
are next in line, to petition the court for any "physical"
connections to the child, too. They have the ''same Rights"
to the child, as you do.
Since you do work, and the child is still at the age to require,
a personal babysitter, then YOU WILL NEED DOCUMENTS
OF PROOF THAT YOU HAVE A COMPETENT SITTER,
or daycare for the child.
FOSTER CARE IS SUPPOSED TO BE A TEMPORARY
PLACEMENT, but your ex-husband, does have the right
to file for custody, since he is grandfather to the child, too.
You might check out the Resources, with a local Legal Aid
Office, near you..and another thing, you can go to the court
house, court clerk's office, and ask if you can file a request
for a Court Appointed Attorney. (I don't know a lot about that
type of service, but I know it's been done at times, by the
When any case on a child, goes into the court system, the
decision of the welfare of that child, then becomes the re-
sponsibility of the Court System, and the Final Decision
is made, by the Judge, of that particular court.
Some Court Systems, have Friends of the Court...which is
an advocacy service...and some places have CASA, which
is a child advocacy service, for the child.
Legal Aid Offices can be found in many locations. You would
probably have to go thru an office nearest you.
Generally, if no one had brought the case before the judge
your daughter could have allowed you to have the child, with
you, with only a written agreement, signed by both of you
before a Notary Public.
You may address the court, by written statement, and taking
the letter to the court clerk's office, or judge's office, and ask
for a postponement, of the case, until all parties, have had a
chance, to have Legal Representation. This is done, in many
court cases, over and over...
You will need documents to proof your residence, your own
income, and it wouldn't hurt anything, if you presented, a
statement from your medical doctor, and also get an eval-
uation, from a Mental Health Agency, as to your Ability to
Care for the child.
Everything that is done, on behalf of any child, brought before
the court system, IS SUPPOSED TO BE DONE ''IN THE
BEST INTEREST OF THE CHILD", and not for the conven-
ience of any of the Adults, involved in a case.
If the names of the Paternal Grandparents, are known, then
they have a right to also, petition the court for Custody or
If they are Known, and are still living, then the court needs to
know this fact, so that there is no further court actions, on
their part, at a later date.
Hope this helps. TF
What Other Jobs Are There For Lawyers Besides Law?
I am an attorney. However, I went to a top 15 school and had mediocre grades. I found the job market to be depressing. So much time, planning, and money went into undergraduate school, I had a 4.0 GPA, and scored above the 95th percentile on the LSAT. I naively thought going to a top school their would be plenty of lucrative and exciting jobs waiting for me and I would be set to have a good quality of life. I remember sending out 300 letters one time and getting no positive response, either they said some nonsense about you are great, you have good accomplishments, but at this time we cannot offer you a position, we will keep your resume on file. I took the Bar Exam in two states wasting time studying and not earning any money. I had to move back in with my parents, fun. Meanwhile many of my friends and people that I knew from High School and College were establishing themselves in their careers and making money, gettng promotions, etc. I worked post-law school as a car salesman and a mortgage broker. Finally a family friend had a friend who was a solo attorney, I worked for him basically for free, actually it was negative because I spent money on travel, long distance phone calls, etc., still living at home with mom and dad, saddled with law school debts, the student loan people started calling wanting $$$. Eventually I left that attorney. I struggled to find another attorney job. Eventually, I got a job in 2003 at firm paying the princely sum of $25,000 per year. I moved out of my parent's house but was still subsidized by them. Dad kept threatening to cut me off, but I lived in an expensive state the cheapest place to stay I found was $1,500 a month all inclusive. My paycheck was like $430.00 a week take home. Eventually, I did go solo, it was hard, but I did make some money in real estate closings for 3 1/2 years. Now the real estate market stinks and I have no income, and I am trying to plan my next move, which may be back to my parents temporarily. I have interviewed for some associate positions and the salary range was 38k-55k, this is pretty low for somone with 5 yrs experience and a doctorate degree. My wife works at a nail salon, as a manicurist, she took a three month course and makes 50K a year. It has been an exquisitely painful road for me. In my family I am the most educated and the least financially secure. My dad makes like $350,000K engineering+MBA degree, my younger sister makes $165,000K a year psyche degree and an MBA. My conclusion, LAW SUCKS!!!!!!!!!! Too many law schools fighting for tuition $$$, night programs, weekend programs, low academic standards, too many attorneys, lowering wages and limiting opportunities, compare to the AMA and ADA that insure a shortage of dentists and doctors. When I was solo it seemed like everyone was an attorney, or their cousin was an attorney, or their sister's friend was an attorney, or their brother was an attorney and so and so on, I lost a lot of business because of this. I do not think doctors and dentists face such client poaching. If you are in the top 5%, law review, and went to a good school, yes, you will probably get a good job right from the start. I would have been better off not going to College and instead picking up a trade like being an electrician. Heck, if I had all the money I wasted on education, worked at a gas station during all my non-earning years and put the money into a CD I could probably be able to retire. Looking back, if I had to do it again, if you want to through the hard work and invest the $$$ for education so it pays off you should go into healthcare. Heck their is a shortage of pharmacists and their median wage is $98,000K well above lawyers. Dentists 180,000K median and their is a shortage. Oh well this sucks but this is my life and I will deal with it, I spent my educational time and $$$, and the dye is cast.
From US News, Poor careers for 2006
By Marty Nemko
Attorney. If starting over, 75 percent of lawyers would choose to do something else. A similar percentage would advise their children not to become lawyers. The work is often contentious, and there's pressure to be unethical. And despite the drama portrayed on TV, real lawyers spend much of their time on painstakingly detailed research. In addition, those fat-salaried law jobs go to only the top few percent of an already high-powered lot.
Many people go to law school hoping to do so-called public-interest law. (In fact, much work not officially labeled as such does serve the public interest.) What they don't teach in law school is that the competition for those jobs is intense. I know one graduate of a Top Three law school, for instance, who also edited a law journal. She applied for a low-paying job at the National Abortion Rights Action League and, despite interviewing very well, didn't get the job.
From the Associated Press, MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A lawmaker who persuaded the Assembly to eliminate all state funding for the University of Wisconsin law school says his reasoning is simple: There's too many lawyers in Wisconsin.
From an ABA study about malpractice claims, More Sole Practicioners: There appears to be an increasing trend toward sole practicioners, due partly to a lack of jobs for new lawyers, but also due to increasing dissatisfaction among experienced lawyers with traditional firms; leading to some claims which could have been avoided with better mentoring.
New Lawyers: Most insurers have noticed that many young lawyers cannot find jobs with established firms, and so are starting their own practices without supervision or mentoring. This is likely to cause an increase in malpractice claims, although the claims may be relatively small in size due to the limited nature of a new lawyers
“In a survey conducted back in 1972 by the American Bar Association, seventy percent of Americans not only didn’t have a lawyer, they didn’t know how to find one. That’s right, thirty years ago the vast majority of people didn’t have a clue on how to find a lawyer. Now it’s almost impossible not to see lawyers everywhere you turn.
