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.

Can I Have 2 Legal Aid Lawyers At Once?
I Have A Legal Aid Lawyer For Criminal Charges, Now Im Just Wondering If I Can Get Another One For Family? Im Not Done With The Criminal Charges Yet, Just Wondering If I Can Have 2 At Once? Is It Possible? Thanks
You can have one for a criminal matter and another for a civil matter (like a divorce), if you like. The criminal matters are generally through the public defender's office or the judge will appoint a private attorney on the matter. In many cases, you can arrange for civil law representation either through the local legal services office or through the county bar association.

Your wages has NOTHING to do with child support.
The federal guidelines is at least 17% of the gross wages that the father (or mother) needs to pay.
The only thing that can legally allow non-payment is if you allow some one to adopt the child, This also means when you get married, your then husband would need to adopt the child for the father to legally stop paying child support.
If when the father is collecting unemployment or welfare, 17% of it must still be paid as child support.
Where Do I Find A Lawyer For Identity Theft?
I Need A Lawyer To Fight, What Appears To Be, A Very Obvious Fight...
I Mailed Loan Documents Through Fed Ex And Had My Loan Documents Stolen...I Was Contacted By My Bank And Was Told That The Envelope Arrived Empty...
I Contacted Fed Ex - The Loan Documents Were Found 3 Days Later...Sent To The Bank...Shortly After, There Were Over $6,000 Of False Charges Made To My Credit Card...
This Was Obviously An Inside Job...Somebody In Fed Ex Has Made A Lot Of Money Harvesting Informtion...
As A Side Note, Fed Ex Gave Me A Special Envelope For Loan Documents...Suspicious??? If You Think This Is A Case...Where Do I Go??
If you still are considering a lawyer with great identity theft protection then check out the link below. Trying to tackle this on your own may be very time consuming.
My Sister In Law Has Gotten Herself Into Some Troulbe. It Seems That Her Boyfriend Whom Is In Jail, Asked Her To Drive Down To Where He Was Doing Some Landscaping Work Outside Of The Jail To See Him. When She Came By, He Sat In Her Car Which Is Obviously A Big No No... She Got Two Misdemeanor Charges. One For A Lude Act Or Something And The Other I Don'T Know. These Are Misdemeanors And She Said The Fine Is $1200. Does She Just Need To Pay This Fine Or Can Jail Time Be Included? Does She Need To Get A Lawyer?
She NEEDS a lawyer. It is POSSIBLE that if she pleads guilty to this she may be considered a sex offender in some states. That would be my primary concern. Without knowing more of the facts of the case, no one could tell you but anytime a possible sex crime is in play today you need competent legal advice.
Why Do Some Folks Hold Such Bad Stereotypes About Criminal Defense Attorneys, Until They Need One ...?
... If Charged With A Crime They Did Not Commit?
Because they don't know what it is all about until they need one...
I have been a defense attorney for some time, and the conversation is always the same when meeting someone new "How can you defend those people?"...The general public just does not understand that the system only works if there are two sides pushing against one another...they think that it is the defense attorney's job to decide whether or not the client is deserving of being defended...
THAT would be unethical and immoral...
An attorney has a duty to zealously advocate for the client. Sometimes that means taking him through trial in hopes of an acquittal..sometimes that means negotiating the best possible deal for the client. What DOESN'T come into play is whether I believe my client to be guilty or innocent. The day I start judging my clients is the day I don't belong in this business.
We get a lot of disdain from folks, but we are the last line of defense for the american public. Without us, the system would be a conveyor belt to prison...a cop decides you're guilty, and puts you on the path to jail...It is my job to hold the police and prosecutors to a high standard so that it isn't too easy for a person to have his freedom taken away.
And to the guy below who thinks that the public defender owes a duty to the public: You are completely wrong. The public defender is paid by the government because the defendant has a constitutional right to effective representation. A public defender has all of the same duties to his client that a private one does. The only difference is that he gets paid a lot less...
What Does The Title 'Senior Counsel' Mean At A Corporate Law Firm?
How High Is That In Terms Of The Rank Of The Individual In The Firm?
Senior Counsel is somewhat of an amorphous title at a law firm. Generally speaking it is a position that is higher than that of an Associate but lower than that of an Equity Partner.
To understand this better it helps to understand the other possible positions one may hold as a practicing lawyer in a law firm and they are as follows:
1. Associate - Sometimes the terms Junior and Senior precede this but basically this is an attorney that works for the firm on a salary.
2. Equity Partner - This is a lawyer who is a part owner in the law firm. As such he or she gets paid a percentage of the firm's net profit. In a successful law firm this is generally considered to be the ultimate career goal within the firm.
3. Contract Partner - This is a lawyer who does not have any ownership interest in the firm but is paid based on hours billed and the amount of client work he or she brings to the firm.
4. Senior Counsel - This is a lawyer that has a status that is higher than that of an associate but lower than that of an Equity Partner and in some firms, a Contract Partner. It is a title granted under numerous circumstances.
One of my friends was made Senior Counsel at a large prestigious law firm based on the fact that she was an extremely efficient, effective and well-liked senior associate within the firm but was not really partnership material because of her lack of client production and need to cutback hours to spend more time caring for her 3 children. Rather than lose her the firm offered to make her Senior Counsel, cut back her hours and have her paid on an hourly basis with full benefits.
Another friend was promoted to Senior Counsel because the firm was not prepared to offer him equity partnership but he needed to have a better title for marketing purposes as the only attorney who had the legal skills and ability to produce clients in a particular area of law, and because he needed more administrative control over his client relationships (which he was granted as part of the promotion). As part of that promotion he also received a percentage of all money collected for clients he produced for the firm.
In many firms when an Equity Partner's productivity goes down, he or she may often be downgraded to a Senior Counsel position. He or she may continue to draw income based on productivity, but is no longer an owner of the firm and generally speaking makes less money than when he or she was an Equity Partner. This is often an interim position prior to retirement for former older Equity Partners.
