3 Strategies To Know You've Picked The Best Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to pass through the court system, specifically if you lack confidence within your legal team. Listed below are three important strategies to recognize that you've hired the correct lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Sort Of Case What the law states is frequently tricky and therefore requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you want an attorney, seek out person who relates to the challenge you're facing. Even though a relative or friend recommends you use a firm they are fully aware, should they don't have got a focus that's just like your case, keep looking. As soon as your attorney is undoubtedly an expert, specifically in the problem you're facing, you understand you've hired the right one. 2. The Lawyer Features A Winning Record According to the circumstances, it might be tough to win an instance, particularly if the team working for you has little to no experience. Seek out practices which may have won numerous cases that affect yours. Although this is no guarantee which you case will be won, it gives you a significantly better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond If the attorney you've chosen takes the time to listen for your concerns and react to your inquiries, you've probably hired the right choice. Irrespective of how busy they can be or how small your concerns seem from the perspective, it's important that they reply to you within a caring and timely manner. From the aim of view of an ordinary citizen who isn't knowledgeable about the judicial system, court cases may be pretty scary you require updates and to think that you're area of the solution. Some attorneys are merely more desirable to your case than the others. Make sure you've hired the most suitable team for your circumstances, to actually can position the matter behind you immediately. Faith with your legal representative is the first task to winning any case.

I Want To Be A Civil Litigation Lawyer, But I Don'T Know What I Should Major First. Any Help?
A major in one of the humanities: English, philosophy, etc. will help you both in your career and in law school. The skills you gain with those majors, like research, writing, textual interpretation, in class discussion and debate, are important in law school and as a lawyer. I would also suggest involving yourself in activities like debate. That will help with the litigation skills you will need after law school.
Is It Possible To Get A Federal Appointed Public Attorney Who Is In Federal Of Bureau Prison Convicted.?
Someone Is Convicted Of A Crime And Serving The Sentence But Gets Accused Doing Another Criminal Activities While In Prison And Presume To Be Guilty Of That Crime Without Proper Investigation. Would This Person Need A Federal Appointed Public Attorney To Represent Him, If Not, What Can Be Done....
Sonny, maybe I am missing your point but if I understand your question...
All people in the US charged with a crime are, by law, entitled to legal representation; even if they are currently imprisoned. Presumption of guilt does not relieve the government from the constitutional based understanding that a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. I am not a legal expert but it would seem practical that the person would be provided a federally appointed lawyer if they don't hire their own private attorney. I have to tell you, I have never heard of a federal public defender but people charged with federal crimes need representation too.
Sorry, but that's the best I've got for you.

If My Medical Malpractice Attorney Wants A Meeting, Do We Have A Case?
Our Daughter Fell Ill Shortly After Birth. During Birth She Contracted A Bacteria, Gbs. She Experience Late Onset Of The Disease. It Turned To Meningitis, And Caused A Stroke. She Is Now Blind, Her Brain Is Severely Damaged, And Her Muscle Tone Is Low. The Whole Thing Could Have Been Prevented Had My Doctor Given The Antibiotics That Were Administered The Whole 4 Hours To Work Instead Of Speeding Along My Labor.
Our Attorney Has Had Our Records For 6 Months. The Hospital Withheld Part Of Our Records 3 Different Times. We Have A Meeting Next Week. Does This Mean We Have A Case? Would Our Attorney Waste The Time Of A Meeting To Just Let Us Down Gently?
There is no way to know, but my sense is that your attorney is going to be giving you the pros and the cons of moving forward - otherwise, he wouldn't be meeting with you in person. Either that, or the hospital has made an offer to settle that he wants to discuss with you. My guess is that it's not going to be great news - but it doesn't sound as though it will be awful news either. (In either of those scenarios, the attorney would likely just tell you on the phone.)
Why didn't you simply ask the attorney for the reason for the meeting? You can also call the office and ask for this information.
How Do Lawyers (Specifically Criminal Defense Attorneys) Use Computers In Their Career Field?
I Am A Freshman In College, And I'M Going To College To Eventually Become A Criminal Defense Attorney. In My Computers Class, We Have To Give A Presentation On How Computers Are Used In Our Career Field. I'M Hoping Some People, Or Even True Lawyers, Could Give Me Some Advice. Thanks!

#2 use: research
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. If you possibly can, change your major asap.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! 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.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. 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. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

How Is A Judge (Family Law) Able To Remove Herself Off A Case? Why Would This Happen?
We Have Been With This Judge For Over The Course Of 2 Yrs Now And We Recently Had A Hearing. At The Point Of Checking In With The Clerk, She Let Us Know Then That The Judge Has Removed Herslef From Our Case And We Are Now With A Different Judge!!! Wow. Why And How Is This Possible?????
+ Please Only Answer If You Know The Reason. No Smart Allic Comments Please. This Is My Sons Life I Am Talking About. Thanx In Advance! +
There are several reasons why a judge removes herself from a case. The judge could have discovered a conflict of interest. The judge may have a schedule conflict. The court system in your jurisdiction may have rotating duties for judges.
If there is a family law case complicated enough that there are repeated appearances over two years, litigants in that case should have been represented by attorneys. If your son is a party in that case, have your son ask his attorney why the judge removed herself from the case. If your son is a minor in this case, and you are a party, ask your attorney. You may also ask the minor's attorney ad litem why the judge removed herself.
