Finding A Seasoned Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are countless lawyers in your town that advertise that they are experts in your form of case. This could make the process of finding one with a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below you will be able to restrict your quest off to the right one out of very little time. The initial step is to produce a list of the lawyers which are listed in your town focusing on your circumstances. When you are making this list you need to only include those that you may have an effective vibe about depending on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down if you take a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you will be able to find the number of years they are practicing and a few general information regarding their success rates. At this time your list must have shrunken further to individuals that you felt had professional websites along with an appropriate volume of experience. You must then take the time to search for independent reviews for each attorney. Make sure you browse the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The data inside the reviews will give you a concept of the direction they interact with their clients and the length of time they invest into each case they are working on. Finally, you should talk with a minimum of the last three lawyers that have the credentials you are interested in. This will give you some time to truly evaluate how interested these are in representing both you and your case. It can be important to follow most of these steps to actually hire a company that has the correct amount of experience to help you get the perfect outcome.

Question For The Good Lawyers And Legal Advisers..?
I Enrolled In A College Using My Education Insurance,The Problem Is All Students Enrolled Using Their Insurance Didn'T Show Up In The List Of Students Enrolled Due To Inconsistencies By The College'S Staff. We'Ve Been Clarifying The Problem With The Registrar And They Keep Saying That The Problem'S Alright But It Has Been Three Weeks Now But Our Names Still Didn'T Appear. The Question Is, Is It Right For Me To Sue The College? What Charges Or Complaint Should I File Against Them?
what would you sue them for? A clerical error?
They say it is ok, so clearly your spot is secure. You have no damages.
Corporate Lawyer Information Uk?
Would You Advise On Becoming A Corporate Lawyer Via The Law Graduate Or Non-Law Graduate Path? If I Pursued The Non-Law Graduate Path Would That Give Me Other Career Options To Fall Back On If I Failed The Highly Competitive Selection Process Or Is This Just For People Who Didn'T Realise They Wanted To Be A Corporate Lawyer When They Pursued Their Degree?

Americans may be surprised at the differences between legal education in the United States and England. The British system, which produces two kinds of lawyers (solicitors and barristers), has several different programs that qualify students to practice law in England and Wales.
The LLB, or Bachelor of Laws, is the English undergraduate law degree, for which candidates must study seven modules in different subject areas, including public law, European Union law, criminal law, procedural law, property law, law of obligations, and trusts and equity. The LLB is a three-year program. As in the United States (where students can opt to study in a pre-law program as undergraduates), British students are not qualified to practice law after this undergraduate degree, but by following a year-long program (LPC or BVC), they can become licensed solicitors or barristers.
LPC and BVC
Students who wish to become solicitors, after finishing their LLB, must enroll with the Law Society of England and Wales. While they will not be considered full members, they are "student members," and enroll in a Legal Practice Course, or LPC, which lasts for one year. Afterward, they work as apprentices under a training contract for two years. Barristers, on the other hand, take a one-year course called the Bar Vocational Course, or BVC, also under the auspices of the Law Society, and then serve a year of "pupilage" in the chambers of an established barrister.
While an LLB is the most common educational option, British lawyers may wish to change specialties after practicing or training for a time; for example, from corporate law to human rights law. A Master of Laws, or LLM, allows them to do this. This one- to two-year program provides specialty training and cross-training in different fields of law, helping lawyers gain a more in-depth understanding of their field or explore an entirely new field.
A postgraduate diploma in law, also known as a PDL or conversion course, qualifies students to become lawyers, no matter what they studied as undergraduates. This graduate program allows students to study for one or two years (full-time and part-time, respectively), qualifying them for an LPC or a BVC afterward.

I Am Looking For Information On The Law Concerning Wrongful Death?
Is There A Statute Of Limitation For A Wrongful Death In Canada?
I'm not sure what exactly you're referring to. Are you talking about suing someone for having negligently caused a wrongful death? If that is the case, the law is governed by provincial law and may vary depending on the province or territory where the wrongful death occurred.
There is no criminal code offence called "wrongful death" per se in Canada although there are other crimes dealing with culpable homicide.

Settle For A Bodily Injury Claim?
I Am Going To Be Calling The Insurance Company Of The Policy Holders Who Hit Me To Settle With A Bodily Injury Claim. My Medical Bills Picked Up A Good Portion Of The Incident. I Didn'T Sustain A Long-Term Injury, Just Had To Miss Work One Day And Pay A Small Bill Related To The Incident..
Am I Only Entitled To Ask For The Exact Dollar Amount For The Bodily Injury Claim When I Call The Agent? Or Can I Ask For Punitive Damages As Well? How Does This Work? Negotiation?
Unless you have a personal pain and suffering claim, you can only get what you are out of pocket. If your time off work was unpaid, you can typically get paid for that as well as whatever you paid out of pocket for medical. For personal pain and suffering claims however you need to document how this accident has made you suffer VIA a doctor's affidavit testifying to your recurring pain or emotional destress, neither of which you have it appears. The insurance company's only responsibility is to make you whole, as you were prior to the accident... not to compensate you or put you in a better place.
How To Find A Good Attorney? How Do You Know They Are Good?
I Have Having Trouble Deciding On A Lawyer For My Upcoming Custody/Divorce Case. I Have Met With 4 And Here'S My Results So Far:
-The First Was Amazed At My Situation And Seemed Confident In My Ability. I Liked The Fact That He Listened And Made Me Feel Good. He Told Me To Call Him Back After A Certain Situation. I Did, That'S Where He Pissed Me Off. He Didn'T Call Back. I Left A Message And Called Again. When I Finally Spoke With Him, He Was Pretty Uptight, Like I Was Hounding Him. I Shared With Him Information That I Thought May Help My Case, But He Claimed It Wasn'T A Big Deal. Then At The End, He Was To The Point That My Situation Is Unique And Not Common. At No Point However, Did He Tell Me What My Chances Were Or What May Happen. I Wrote Him Off Because Of The Second Phone Call. I Checked His Reviews, And He Is Good According To Them. I'M Not Sure Of His Cost Though.
-The Second Was To The Point. He Listened To What I Had To Say. When It Was Done, He Told Me He Wasn'T Suppose To Say This, But He Felt I Would Get Whatever I Asked For. I Wanted To Go With Him. His Cost Was 2500. However, He Has Bad Reviews Online, But Not Alot. They All Say Like &Quot;Horrible Lawyers, Don'T Go There&Quot;, But He Is Never Names And I Wasn'T Sure How The Reviews Are Related Anyways.
-The Third I Talked With Briefly. He At First Told Me I Would Be Paying Child Support, That Was Until I Told Him I Was Going For Custody And Could Work From Home. As I Explained The Situation Further, He Told Me There Was A 90% Chance I Would Get What I Wanted. Why Would He Say That? He Also Told Me It May Take A Few Months As Well. His Cost Was 2000-3000 And He Has 38 Years Experience. I'M Not Sure His Reviews.
The Fourth Was A Woman And I Paid Her For Her Time, Which Sucked. She Was Very Devils Advocate Like. She Pretty Much Was Saying All The Bad Things That Could Happen And I Should Try For 50-50, At First. Then Once It Gets Going, I May Get Full Custody Once A Social Worker Talks With My Wife And Sees She Is Unfit. However, The Second Lawyer Told Me That If I Agreed To 50-50, Based On The Situation, The Courts Would Look At Me Like I'M Stupid. I Didn'T Feel Comfortable With This Woman. Her Costs Were 4000-5000. I Felt I'D Be Wasting My Money Because My Wife Wants 50-50 And No Child Support, And It Seemed Like She Wouldn'T Fight Hard Enough For Me. Thats What I Need, Because What I'M Attempting Is An Uphill Battle. Her Reviews Are Pretty Good Online Though. However, One Is From Someone Stating She Was Biased Towards The Female And Didn'T Back Him. Honestly, That Was The Impression I Got As Well, Even Though She Admitted To Playing Devils Advocate, Didn'T Know What Would Happen, But Didn'T Have It In Her To Tell What She Thought I Would Get.
So Really, I Have No Idea What To Do. Yes, I Am Trying To Get Sole Custody Of A Newborn. I Would Rather Not Explain Why, But I Have Good Reason. That Is Not My Question Anyways Though. My Question Is How Do You Find A Good Lawyer? Do The Online Reviews Help? Is There A Website That Helps? Any Take On The Four I Spoke With? As Of Right Now, I'M Leaning Towards The Second. Any Help Would Be Great, This May Only Be A Few Weeks Away From Happening. I Should Also Mention That My Wife May Not Show To The Hearing And If She Does, Will Not Have A Lawyer And May Not Be Able To Talk To The Judge On Her Own...
Here we go....First ask if he has a License to practice Law (no such thing..Bar card or Diploma, is not a license)....Second ask if he can guarantee to put your affairs first and foremost on his agenda..Corpus Juris Secundum (Legal Encyclopedia)..His first duty is to the courts and the public not to the Client...That puts you 3rd in line....If you decide to go by yourself DO NOT let the Judge say or ask if you are there Pro Se, that means you are representing yourself and you will be expected to know how to practice Law..Go in Pro Per or proper person...as yourself and will be proceeding Sui Juris or in my own right...My advice is agree to 50/50 long enough to document her lack of concern. It's the best offer this side of full custody....If she is willing to go for 50/50 with no child support for a new born it is only a matter of time...Keep an audio/video recorder handy and ready..you never know what might come out
