Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer Irrespective of what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are countless lawyers in your town that advertise which they focus on your form of case. This will make the whole process of finding one with significant amounts of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the following it is possible to define your research on the right one in almost no time. The first task is to produce a list of the lawyers that are listed in your town specializing in your needs. While you are causeing this to be list you should only include those that you may have an effective vibe about based on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you must be able to find how many years they are practicing and some general specifics of their success rates. At this time your list needs to have shrunken further to people that you felt had professional websites along with an appropriate amount of experience. You should then make time to look up independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure you see the reviews instead of just counting on their overall rating. The information from the reviews will provide you with an idea of the direction they connect to their clientele and the time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, you should talk to no less than the final three lawyers who have the credentials you are looking for. This gives you time to truly evaluate how interested they may be in representing you and your case. It is important to follow every one of these steps to ensure that you hire a company that has the right amount of experience to obtain the best possible outcome.

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.

What Do Law Offices Look For In Paralegals?
I Am Thinking Of Pursuing A Career In Paralegal Studies, And I Would Like To Eventually Work For A Government Agency. Does It Matter If You Get An Associates Or A Bachelors Degree. Will It Be Harder For Me To Get A Job With An Associates Than A Bachelors?
Law offices look for paralegals who have direct knowledge of their profession and a command of the intricacies related to providing legal advice to clients. The attorney needs to know that he/she can rely on the advice you provide without having to worry that it will inaccurate.
Many jobs in government agencies don't require a degree so it won't matter if you have an Associates or Bachelor degree.
If you really want to make yourself more marketable and distinguish yourself from other applicants, pursue the Paralegal studies then get the Bachelors degree.
Why The Hate For Lawyers?
I Am A First Year Law Student. Lawyers Seem To Be The Folks Everyone Loves To Hate. Joke Books Abound About Them. So That I Can Empathize With My Future Clients...Why All The Hate For Lawyers?
Thanks In Advance :)
Several reasons. One, they often represent criminals accused of horrible crimes, and do their best to get them acquitted. While doing so is essential to a just legal system, people often blame the lawyers for doing "too good a job."
Second, many of them really do make a ton of money off of the misfortunes of other people. Chemical plant leaks and gives hundreds of people cancer? Yippee, a tort lawyer's gold mine. You get the picture :)
My father's a lawyer, and a couple of my best friends are. I know a lot of them. By and large, they're highly ethical, honest, hard-working, and very intelligent people. But there are still an awful lot of lawyers out there that aren't ethical at all, and will do anything for money...that's true in any profession, but lawyers who do that are often quite visible in society :)
Good luck with your studies.
If A Home Is Left In Awill, And The Deed Is In Trust To Someone Can It Be Taken Away?
As an attorney practicing in Michigan, I can only tell you what I'd otherwise tell a Michigan resident. Which is: once the deed to the house is drafted and filed with the Register of Deeds, then the house is owned by the trust. Now, usually a trust is set-up as what is called a "Revocable Living Trust". The purpose of this trust is so that you can avoid probate and (typically) tax burdens on the receipient of the home.
You, as the Trustee of the Trust, have the ability to deed things in and out of the trust. Once you die, however, your successor trustee steps in and takes your place...with all the same rights as you had when you were alive (save any specific requirements as per the trust).
Therefore, once the Trust becomes the "owner" of the home, any subsequent will (with regard to the house) is unenforceable since you didn't own the house at the time you're attempting to give it away--the trust did. The problem, however, is that the person named in the will to get the house will probably contest that Trust provision of the house because the will was made AFTER the trust. Therefore, the devisee of the house will argue that the fact the will was made after the trust was drafted, it clearly shows an intent by the owner that he was revoking the provision in the trust as to who the beneficiary to the house is, and instead, is leaving the house to the person named in the will.
On the other hand, the successor trustee is going to argue that the person who created the trust and had the house put in the trusts name couldn't give the house away via a will because the house was now owned by the trust itself. Therefore, any will (even if subsequent to the trust) attempting to give away the house will fail because the testator didn't have possesion of the house to the extent that he had a divisible interest.
Whew, not an easy question you asked! =D
