Listed here are three important strategies to know that you've hired the right lawyer: 1. They Focus On Your Type Of Case What the law states is frequently tricky and that requires specialists to tackle the tough cases.

Anyone That Knows About Either Or Both Of The Laws And Lawyers Of New Zealand And South Africa, Please Help?!?
Does Anyone Know If A Lawyer That Immigrated From South Africa To New Zealand Can 'Rule' As A Lawyer In New Zealand?
I Hope The Question Is In Good Shape So Everyone Can Understand, Its Not My First Language...
Thanks A Lot!!!
A lawyer in New Zealand has to be admitted to the bar. So your question is, can a South African lawyer be admitted to the New Zealand bar without having to go to law school all over again. The short answer is, I don't know. The long answer is, such a lawyer would almost certainly NOT have to go to law school all over again, but they would also very likely have to do some study. Possibly not. The best person to ask would be someone from the New Zealand Law Society. They have a website, and the answer might be there. Alternatively, check the website of the NZ ministry of Justice.

I'm An Attorney Looking To Increase My Client Base. How Do I Get On Provider Lists?
I Know That Various Employers Provide Their Employees With Low Cost Legal Services Via Work Plans. I'd Like To Know How To Get On Those Lists. Any Other Hints For Getting "Out There" Would Be Appreciated.
Call the employers benefit department and see what they offer if they will tell you and get a person's name and go from there.
Also list your self with internet and phone sites that have "ask a lawyer", or lawyer referral site.
Put your business info on the local part of yahoo.
Set up a referral system with other lawyers that practice other types of law. Then if one of you have a possible client that you do not handle that type of law you can refer it another one in the group.
According To Black'S Law Dictionary What Is The Meaning To The Word Real Person?
This should be asked in the law section.
But I would take a wild guess that a "real person" is just that: real.
This would be as opposed to an ethereal entity (AKA: "legal entity") such as a corporation.
Less likely, but still possible, is that it differentiates a real person from a figmentary one like santa claus, god or a fabricated description of an alleged perpetrator.

At That Time, I Had Arranged To Pay A Deposit And First Months Rent Of An Apartment My Friends And I Were Getting. I Had 3 Days Left To Pay, But I Still Couldn'T Get Ahold Of Him.

One Night, We Drove To His House. When We Got There, We Decided Not To Do It, So My Friend Just Threw 2 Rocks At The Windows. On The Way Out Of The Neighborhood, We Got Stopped.
Boy, I seem to be on a trail with your questions and you keep giving out more details so I have to clarify my answer again and again (this is my third response).
First if you didn’t make your friend sign any legal documents saying that he owed you money then the debt won’t be provable or considered by the court. Between friends a person’s word should be good enough, but I have found that when money is involved all bets are off.
What ever you wrote in your statement and confessed to will probably stick, you should have waited for a lawyer. Did anyone ask for a lawyer or did you just get frightened and wrote those statements. If you did then and didn’t ask for a lawyer first then those statements will hold in court and they will be very hard to break. A good lawyer can do it, but probably not a lawyer from the Public Defender’s Office. You would need to prove that the police were notified you wanted a lawyer and didn’t get you one, or that the confessions were coerced, forced out of you somehow; the mere threat of jail isn’t enough, you were in jail already. The threat of serving time in a prison isn’t strong enough either since you are considered innocent until proven guilty.
The charge of Organized Crime may not stick, unless any of you are members of a gang. You are friends and your relationship as friends is not a criminal one. A good lawyer can make that charge “go away.”
In your two earlier questions you implied that guns were involved, if there were no guns present then that is good, but if you had a screwdriver the prosecutor can call that a weapon similar to a knife. If the knife has tool marks on it that could seem to make it look like it was sharpened then this question of a weapon or not becomes more important.
Your statements are the key to the case and they will be your doom. What ever you wrote and signed in police custody will be what the final decision will hinge on. If no one in your group was a gang member then you can argue your way past the organized crime charge, but you confessed to the others so a trial is a mere formality. If you can’t break those confessions then you will go to jail on attempted burglary (breaking and entering) and burglary to attempt theft (attempted theft). If you confessed that the group of you planned on breaking in and robbing your former friend then that is a conspiracy, although not necessarily a criminal one. Still it will only increase the threat you posed and that will make the charges seem worse and the probably punishment even worse.
The fact that you were leaving doesn’t matter; the fact that you might have intended something else is also immaterial. You confessed, and what ever you wrote on that confession will stay, it will cause you to lose the case, and it will put you in jail.
You have two options. First find a very good lawyer (read that as expensive) who can break those confessions or plead guilty and try to come off as good boys who planned a crime, but realized that it was wrong and you couldn’t do it. You were wanted to repent for that act so you willingly confessed to the police. I doubt if anyone will believe that you were on your way to turn yourself in, but you could try and suggest that to you lawyer and see what he thinks. You may end up confessing your guilt and “throwing yourself on the mercy of the court.” But, don’t do that until after you talk with a lawyer, in fact don’t say anything until you contact a lawyer. Future communication with your friends can be traced and that can be used to say enforce the idea of a conspiracy, so don’t talk with them. Seek legal advice this minute, I mean right after you read this note.

You don't want to get legal advice over the Internet - THAT is NOT a good idea!!!!
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for Lawyers that handle Family Law matters. ALSO, ask for the phone number for your local Legal Aid office.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Attorney. Do NOT tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Lawyer. When you get the Attorney on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they have FREE, initial consultations?
- How much do they charge?
- Do they accept payments on their accounts?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
