Most men and women do not think about obtaining a legal professional until finally they are in desperate need. The legal matter could possibly be personal, like family law, for a divorce or separation or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a criminal situation you will need to be defended on. Firms need attorneys as well, no matter if they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or potentially unjustified business procedures. Tax law firms are also useful when interacting with government troubles. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A big, full service law firm has many legal professionals with diverse areas of skills, so based upon on your personal legal issue, you can promptly retain the best attorney to match your current need without having to start your search each time you need legal assistance.It is best to obtain a lawyer you can have confidence in. You want one with a good record, who ishonest, effective, and wins cases. You would like to have trust that they will stand for you accurately and charge you fairly for their services. From time to time a referral from a colleague or business associate can be practical, however you should hold your options open and evaluate all the firms available, because when you want legal support, you need it immediately and you really want the finest you can pay for.

Recent Grad W/ Ba In English: Advice About Law School?
I Am A Very Conflicted Recent Graduate With An Enlish Major. I Realized That There Is Not Much To Do With A Ba In Eng. And From Research Online And Heresay I Am Leaning Towards Entering Law School. However, I Have Always Been Interested In Fashion And Magazines But I Want A Well Paying Job In The End (Student Loans!). I Also Don'T Live An Area (I Live In Connecticut) That Has A Lot Of Opportunities For Someone Interested In Fashion. What Should I Do? I Need Serious Advice, Feedback, Personal Experience. Just Serious Responses Please. Thanks.
Law school is very expensive and it would take you awhile to get through school and you have to pass the bar. There is this really good fashion school in NYC. You should probably think about relocating to somewhere where fashion is big like California or NYC or Florida. Its a very good price. Other fashion schools are way expensive. You should check it out.
You should go to the careerbuilder website and see about jobs in the fashion. Usually to work in fashion you have to have some type of work/ or school experience in fashion.Unless that is your very very knowledgeable about fashion.
Good luck! I hope you find something!
Is This A Normal Contract For Attorney'S Fees In A Settlement?
We Are Filing A Lawsuit Against A Big Pharm Company Related To Our Son'S Birth Defect. The Attorney Sent Over A Contract And It States That The Attorney Will Receive 35% Of Any Settlement (I'Ve Read That This Is Pretty Close To Standard) And &Quot;Client Understands That The Client Is Giving Up At This Time To The Attorneys The Amount Stated Above, And That Such Percentage Is Of The The Total Recovery Or Settlement Before Any Costs, Expenses, Or Disbursements Are Deducted And Client Understands That All Costs, Expenses, And Disbursements Are Paid Out Of The Client'S Portion Of The Recovery, And Not Out Of The Attorneys' Portion.&Quot;
Does This Mean That After They Take 35% I'Ll Still Have A Large Bill For Their Services? Is This A Standard For Personal Injury Claims? Any Advice Would Be Appreciated.
The attorney will EITHER work for a percentage of any settlement OR for a fixed or hourly fee. That said, court fees and expenses related to the case are in addition to the attorney's 35%. You MAY have a bill above the 35%, but it will not be for their services. I suggest discussing likely fees with the attorney BEFORE signing the contract. If they can't/won't explain this to your satisfaction, you shouldn't hire them.

If you can get an advanced degree, do it. The more education you have, the better. Make sure the school you attend is properly accredited. Get the highest grade point average that you can. There are many majors that are good for police officers and people that want to become police officers. Accounting, communications, computer science, a foreign language, forensic science, law, and psychology are some examples. There are many police officers that also take college classes. Consider trying to get an internship with a law enforcement agency while you're in college. Also consider participating in a couple extra-curricular activities. Don't do anything illegal, and maintain a good reputation. Getting police officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. Do whatever else you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can. Best of luck!

Legal Advice Regarding My Complicated Divorce?
I Filed For A Divorce In August 2006 Along With A Restraining Order. I Filled Out A Dissolution Of Marriage, Paid The Fee And Waited For A Court Date. (Never Got One) Meanwhile I Was Dealing With The Restraining Order Which Was More Difficult, Because After I Kicked My Ex Out And He Stole My Things... I Had No Address For Him Or His Family. I Tried Having The Sheriff'S Department Serve Him, But They Couldn'T Without An Address. So After A Few Months Of Reissuing Temporary Restraining Orders, I Found A Business Card Of A Job That He Had Just Started At The Time And My Mom Served Him. He Trashed The Papers In Front Of Her And Didn'T Show Up To Court. Then Honestly Left Everything As It Was Till July 2008 And Looked Up The Status. They Said My Divorce Was At A Standstill... I Was Surprised Since My Friends Said That I'D Be Divorced 6 Months After I Filed. So I Got Back On It Again And Figured Out What I Had To Do. I Never Used An Attorney And Have Been Doing It On My Own Since 2006. But In 2008 My Ex Finally Got An Attorney And Finally Wanted The Divorce Too. He Was Trying To Claim More Things, Saying I Had A Car, Computer, Dvds, Even Kitchen Appliances, The List Went On. Which Is All A Lie, He Took All His Things And Even Stole My Things And I Let Him Just So He Would Leave. The Car He Is Trying To Claim Was A Gift, By My Mom And Brothers. I Have Proof Of All That And It Isn'T A Worry. But He'S Very Spiteful And Is Going Out Of His Way To Delay The Divorce And Hurt Me. So I Went To The Workshops And Re-Served Him The Divorce Papers With An Address I Got From His Attorney. The Court Got A Notice Saying It Didn'T Go Through Somehow. I Don'T Know How He'S Avoiding Getting That... I Went To Court Had Someone That Knows About This Do It With Me And We Pulled Up His Address And I'M Still Not Getting A Court Date! But Anyway, His Attorney Wrote Something Up For Me Last December (2008) Saying If I Signed It, That I Wouldn'T Have To Show Up To Court And That We'D Be Divorced. I Read It Through And Said I'D Sign It If He Changed The Part Where My Ex Claims To Have Never Been Served The Restraining Order Papers. Cuz That Was The One Thing I Did Serve Him In 2006. I Told His Attorney That I Was More Than Willing To Remove The Restraining Order If He Changed That And Put The Truth. I Never Got A Reply From His Attorney. A Few Days Ago I Get An Email From His Attorney Saying I'Ll Be Charged My Ex'S Attorney Fees About $2000 Worth Along With A Bifurcated Judgment, Saying I Never Returned His Calls. I Explained To Him That I Was Unwilling To Give My Number Out, Due To The Fact My Ex Will Get It And Maybe Harass Or Intimidate Me Again. He Had My Email And Did Not Email Me Until June 18 When He Informs Me That I Have To Show Up To Court In July And Forced To Pay Fees.
What Can I Do? I Never Avoided Any Communication, And I'Ve Been Desperately Trying To Get The Divorce Finalized! I'M The Petitioner For Crying Out Loud. I Feel Like My Ex And His Attorney Are Trying To Screw Me Over. He Didn'T Make Any Attempts To Contact Me Or Email Me And He Admitted That Through Email, But He Said That He Called My Mother'S Number Several Times. As Far As I Know That'S Not True.
Also, I Really Don'T Want To Be Near My Ex Husband. My Restraining Order Still Stands And I Don'T Want To Miss My Court Date. What Can I Do? Do I Qualify For A Court Call?
I Really Really Need Help, If You Know Anyone That Would Know What To Do In This Situation, Please Send Them My Way.
You really need the advice of an attorney (a lot of them will speak to you for only $50.00). If you are employed, check to see if your employer offers pre-paid legal services (they are absolutely awesome to use)....cost very little in your paycheck. The pre-paid legal is anywhere from $15.00 to $25.00 a month (a well worth it).
I found these links on the internet if your employer doesn't offer this....I can't recommend any of these services as I haven't used any of these companies...but it's worth checking into.
This website can direct you to a Local Attorney for Free:
You also might talk to a local "paralegal" you can use their services to reply to attorney letters etc. (they are less money than an attorney) and they are required to operate under an attorney.
I wish you the best in all that you do...it's a tough time for you and especially because of this tough economy.
Cant Afford Dwi Attorney. Not Poor Enough For Assigned Council?
Ive Got 500 Bucks In My Bank Account, And Its Spoken For Because Ive Gotta Pay Rent Tomorrow.
Ive Got 65 Bucks In My Savings Account.
I Dont Have Any Money And Cant Afford A Private Dwi Lawyer, But According To The Application I Sent In For Requested Appointed Council, Im Not Poor Enough To Recieve Assigned Council....
So Wtf Am I Supposed To Do If I Dont Have Downpayment Money To Give A Dwi Lawyer, And The $300/Month That I Could Possibly Be Saving I Wont See Until The End Of The Month.......My Court Date Is The 18Th (Before The End Of The Month)
Im Messed Up In The Worst Way And I Dont Know What To Do...
Here's the issue: a DWI attorney may or may not be able to get the charge reduced. Depending on what state you're in, there may be no point in having an attorney, anyway.
However, I think we can all agree on one thing: you are clearly demonstrating that you cannot afford to drive drunk.
