Finding An Experienced Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will find that there are numerous lawyers in your town that advertise that they specialize in your type of case. This can make the entire process of finding one with a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, in the event you follow the tips below you will be able to define your pursuit to the correct one out of very little time. The first task is to create a listing of the lawyers that are listed in the area focusing on your needs. When you are making this list you must only include those that you have a great vibe about based on their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down by using some time evaluating their website. There you will be able to find the number of years they are practicing and several general information regarding their success rates. At this point your list should have shrunken further to the people which you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate quantity of experience. You should then take time to look up independent reviews of every attorney. Be sure to read the reviews instead of just counting on their overall rating. The data from the reviews provides you with a solid idea of how they communicate with their clientele and how much time they invest into each case they are focusing on. Finally, you should meet up with a minimum of the past three lawyers which have the credentials you are searching for. This will give you time to genuinely evaluate how interested they may be in representing your case. It can be crucial for you to follow all of these steps to ensure that you hire a company that has the best amount of experience to help you the ideal outcome.

Unfortunately the cops don't seem willing to do anything about this bullying, and I can almost guarantee it's because of where you live. (I hope that doesn't offend you. I'm not trying to be offensive because I've been there).
I know this is going to sound like a standard reply, but you seriously need to talk to an attorney. Go to your local bar association's website and find one through their lawyer finder. There are many who will consult with you free of charge and could set up a payment plan with you (called contingency). You're hitting a brick wall because of your situation, unfortunately, but there are people out there who WILL help you.
And call Child Protective Services and have them investigate that mother. If the child is reacting that way, being abusive, more often than not they are mimicking what they see at home, or what is being done to them.

You call around and ask. Maybe you'll get lucky and find somebody with nothing better to do. I wouldn't count on it though.
A Question For Aggressive !! Civil Attorneys?
I Know A Friend Who Is Out Of State, And Is Trying To Establish A New Life In This City. He Needs Shelter, And This Homeless Shelter Is Refusing To Provide Shelter On Grounds That It Is Against Their &Quot;Policy&Quot; To Provide Shelter To Out Of State Residents. Now I Know Who Ever Is Reading This May Just Conclude That This Is Within Their Right.
However I Believe Their Are Many Possible Legal Issues With This Situation.
The Legal Issues That Could Be Surrounding This Issue Could Be But Not Limited To:
C) Civil Rights (I Know This May Be A Stretch, But It Is Illegal To Discriminate Against Someone On Grounds Of Race, Religion, National Origin, Sexual Orientation, Etc. It Seems To Me That Regional Status Could Be An Unexplored Venue In Discrimination. (Lets Face It Their Is A Long History Of Discrimination Based On People From Other Regions)
Another Thought That Comes To Mind That Is, If The Shelter Is Receiving Any Funding On The Federal Or Even State Level Could Determine If Their Policy Is Even Legal.
Any Thoughts On This? Everyone Is Invited To Answer This Question, However I Want Lawyers, Paralegals, Student Lawyers, Or Even People Who Really Study It.
Well, I'm wondering what the concept of "residency" even means for a homeless person. But anyway ...
"I know this may be a stretch, but it is illegal to discriminate against someone on grounds of race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, etc. It seems to me that regional status could be an unexplored venue in discrimination"
Yeah, it's a stretch. Race, religion, national origin, and sexual orientation are things recognized as being impossible or very inconvenient to change. OTOH, if a person from Georgia doesn't like being from Georgia, he or she is quite free to move to Alabama.
Besides, just about every law on the books makes some sort of distinction between classes of citizens, and so the canard that "it discriminates" is pretty hollow -- but that doesn't stop attorneys from trying to use it, and some judges from falling for it.
But even if that issue did get to court in a lawsuit, I imagine the opposing argument would be some variant of the "rational basis" or "compelling state interest" variety. In this case, it's a pretty safe bet that the homeless center was set up to serve the needs of the *local* community. Bear in mind that the homeless shelters of, say, New York City, have a hard enough time serving NYC's homeless population; that they cannot possibly serve the homeless populations of Chicago, Atlanta, etc. as well; and that homeless people in those cities presumably have similar resources in their own areas.
Second Degree Assault Charges?
I Got Into A Fist Fight And Was The Only One Who Threw A Punch, But Was In Self Defense Because The Guy Was Up In My Face. We Had Been Going Back And Forth All Day On Facebook And He Finally Said To Come Meet Him. He Then Tore My Shirt And Kicked Me In The Balls, He Didn'T Get Injured But I Dislocated My Shoulder. He Is Now Pressing Charges Against Me.... Second Degree Assault. I Found Out From Someone That He Is Supposed To Drop The Charges And He Wont Be In The Country The Day Of The Court Date. But Found Out That The State Still Pursues The Charges. I'M In Maryland By The Way.
This Is My First Offense And I'M A Responsible Kid, Going To School And Everything, It Was All Over A Girl. What Do You Think The Judge Will Decide Based On It Being My First Offense And The Other Guy Not Showing Up On The Court Date.
Right Now I Am Just Going With A Public Defender Because Neither Me Or My Family Has The Money To Afford A Lawyer. Should The Public Defender Be Fine?
I'M Kind Of Freaking Out.
If YOU were the only one to throw a punch, it was NOT a fist fight OR self defense. Being 'up in your face' is NOT assault.
If he kicked you, you were NOT the only one to commit assault.
You are not capable of dislocating your shoulder by punching someone without injuring them.
There are so many inconsistencies you your story, it is hardly worth stating that he CAN'T press charges. He can only file a complaint. The DA decides whether or not to press charges.
If you got in a fight on Facebook over a girl, and then met the guy and fought, you are NOT a responsible kid.
Good Questions For Student To Ask Lawyer In Interview?
I Am A First Semester Freshman In College, For One Of My Classes I Am Required To Interview A Person In The Career I Am Interested In. I Will Be Interviewing A Lawyer This Week And Would Like Suggestions Regarding What Kind Of Questions I Should Ask. I Was Thinking About The General Questions Like &Quot;What Made You Want To Become A Lawyer?&Quot;, &Quot;What Part Of Law School Did You Find Most Challenging & Most Rewarding?&Quot; Etc. But I Would Appreciate Questions From Attorneys And Perhaps Others Who Have Been In This Position. Thank You!
The questions you have are basic "nice to know stuff" however things can go deeper. If this is a criminal lawyer, a question can be: "how do you find yourself the ability to cope with someone who you knew did the crime, but you are fighting for him/her to the letter of the law to try and find a legal technicality so that person does not have to suffer the consequences of their actions, then to see how traumatized the victim is?
The law is always changing with different rulings. How do you and how much time do you spend on research of the latest "case law" or whatever else changes in the legal system? How do you stay on top of these forever changes?
Do you find the job pressures are too great to have the ability to balance a healthy lifestyle between pleasure and work?
I'm in school right now and will have a large student loan to pay off. What kind of money would a junior lawyer expect to make once out of college? Can there be expectations of paying my loan and enjoying life?
