Contact the GA Bar Assn. for referrals. www.gabar.org/index.htm They can tell you what lawyers specialize in that branch of law and may have a list of those who will work pro bono tho that may be hard to find. You may find one that will take the matter on contingency (That means they get paid only if they win and get $ for you)

What Are Some Reasons To Become An Attorney? Specifically A Real Estate Attorney, But Any?
What Are Some Good Reasons For Becoming An Attorney?
What Are Some Good Reasons For Becoming A Real Estate Attorney?
There is not many good reasons for becoming an attorney. Major lawyer glut, too many law schools. USA needs more lawyers, like it needs swine flu.
I have been a real estate lawyer. As another poster said most attorneys cannot just be a real estate attorney. Real estate is cyclical, less deals, means less work for attorneys in general. The foreclosure law firms are doing well, but that is only if you own a foreclosure law firm. I interviewed at my state's biggest foreclosure law firm and they were offering a $35,000 salary, wOW, let me roll up the armored car. They had probably 70 attorneys. Most of them were doing some small little grunt work pieces of the foreclosure, so they never saw the big picture of how to perform a foreclosure from beginning to end. I could not help it I laughed at the interviewer when he told me salary. I put up with a lot to be a licensed attorney, no way they get me for $35K. I would rather worked at Taco Bell as an assistant manager and probably get paid more.
I have done a bunch of real estate closings where people are buying and refinancing property. That used to be an OK gig, again you have to own the law firm. I worked for a real estate/debt collection law firm making $25,000 a year, it was a joke. I needed the experience so I worked there for a short time, but I felt totally used. Then I went on my own. BIG STRESS. There is huge competition for clients among attorneys. It is hard or impossible for most new attorneys to get clients. Also, for real estate closings most states are allowing non-lawyers to do closings, and this trend is spreading. It costs less for a kid with a high school diploma doing your closing versus an attorney, so in the non-attorney states it is harder to make a $. Then there is all the unethical stuff where people, like real estate agents and mortgage brokers want bribes/kickbacks for giving you business, which is illegal. If anything goes wrong with the closing you take the blame even though it is not your fault. Real Estate Agents, I cannot stand Real Estate Agents, they complain about everyone else, and how much the attorney charges. Yet, they get paid five times more than anyone for a closing. It is a declining, cut-throat business.
Really, go into healthcare if you have any interest in that field. Pharmacist, physical therapist, nurse, MD, dentist, those are the high pay, high in demand jobs that pay well. If you go law you might not be able to get a job. I went to a top twenty law school and there were classmates working as waiters and shoe salesmen months after graduation looking for a law job. Since then there have been several new law schools opening, passing the 200 mark for ABA accredited law schools in the USA(There are 37 dental schools, with a quarter of the class size), not to mention the unaccredited ones, there are ten more new law schools planning to open in the next two years, CRAZY.
I read an article in Lawyers Weekly, This year law is so bad that the 09' graduates of Harvard Law, generally ranked #1 cannot find jobs this year.
Who Is Suppose To Enforce The International Humanitarian Law?
Hopefully It'S Not The Us ._.
But Could It Be The Un, Or Any Country That Wants To Help Out? I'M Not Finding Much On Google, Only About The Trails And Conferences.
International Law is a very fuzzy thing. As you've found out, there are international courts. Specifically, the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Netherlands is the body that exists to hold trials for individuals accused of war crimes.
When people talk about arresting and holding a trial for Kony at the international level, they mean the ICC. The ICC's prosecutors have indicted Kony for war crimes and crimes - they want the guy brought in and put on trial.
But the ICC is purely a judiciary body. It has judges. It has lawyers. It doesn't have international police jungle paratrooper commando squads. The ICC can only hold trials for people turned over to the ICC. Someone else has to catch them and ship them over.
That's probably not going to be the US, because the US does not support the ICC. The US isn't part of the treaties and agreements that back up the court, because the US doesn't want to have American soldiers dragged before the ICC on war crimes charges.
So the chances of US soldiers going out and grabbing Kony on behalf of the International Criminal Court...no, not gonna happen. Not like that, anyway.
Which Government Entities Hire Employment Attorneys?
Can Anyone Give A Good Reference To A Lawyer Who Will Sue For Legal Malpractice?
I Have Received A Letter From The Attorney Grievance Stating That The Lawyer I Had Doing My Case Violated Mcr 9.104(A)(2)-(4) And Mrpc 1.1(B); And, 1.3. I Need A Lawyer Who Will Take On This Case And Sue For Pain An Suffering For Loss Of Money That I Could Have Received If The Lawyer Would Have Done Her Job Right. I Need A Lawyer Who Will Do Pro Bono. I Live In Michigan Anyone Who Can Give Reference To A Good Lawyer I Would Appreciate It.
There are certain issues with lawyers recommending lawyer services, so I will not give you any direct recommendations, but I will explain to you how to best find what you are looking for.
First of all, you start off on the webpage http://www.martindale.com
This is essentially the national "yellow pages" of all licensed lawyers. Click the "Find Lawyers and Law Firms" link to the left, then select "Law Firms" in the main window.
Select Michigan as a state, and in the field below, indicating legal practice, select "Legal Malpractice'. Do not enter anything in any other fields to get as broad search as possible. (You should end up with 83 hits).
Then just start contacting every one of them, explaining your case and that you want to sue the lawyer for malpractice. Or, if you are willing to do some research instead of carpet bombing them with e-mails, google the firms and see which one appears to be the best. Often, a larger firm is a better firm.
It is unlikely that you will get a lawyer to do this Pro Bono, the normal way of a law suit like this is based on a contingency fee. That essentially means that you do not pay anything for their services up front, but that they receive a part of the money you win, if you end up winning the case (usually 30%, but this would all be calculated into the award a judge would give you).
The good thing with this system is that if you don't win, you don't pay. The bad thing is of course that if you do win, 30% is a fairly large chunk of money.
Best of luck to you.
To address the issue by the previous poster, as you have a letter from the Attorney Grievance Commission, it would be entirely impossible for the lawyer in question to counter sue you for malicious prosecution. You do not at all need to worry about this.
Will Getting A High Class Attorney That Is Same Law Firm As A Local Judge Help My Case?
He Cost 3500 To Get Started And 7500 Just To Go To Court And 300 An Hour But He Showed Me The Worst But Most Likely I Would Get 5 Years And That When He Works That He Can Get That Down Over What A Public Defender Will Do. The Local Judge Worked At This Law Firm For 42 Years Before Becoming A Judge And This Guy Is His Best Man And Has A Johnny Cockron Type Background And Has Even Got People Off A Murder Charges Which I Saw On The News After Hiring Him.
Does This Really Make A Difference Or What?
He Says It Is A Numbers Game To Them And That I Would Most Likely Just Have To Worry About The Fine By Hiring Him And That He Has His Own Team Who Can Make Sure The Evidence Is Inadmissible So I Won'T Be Charged With Everything. He Wants To Get Them On Every Little Mess Up, How They Did It And My Medical Problems That Might Kill Me If I Go To Prison That Long.
He sounds like a very capable attorney, and that has to help your situation. Can you afford that? (Sounds expensive too.)
If you have money, you won’t qualify for a public defender. That’s my guess. The problem with public defenders is that they are so overworked. They may be competent attorneys, but there is only so much time they can spend on your case.
The vast majority of cases end up going through a plea process, and get plead down to a lesser charge. That’s not all bad either, if you can get something you can live with. I think this depends on the strength of their case, and how crowded the court calendar might be.
If you end up going to court, it will cost more in attorney fees, and there is still plenty of uncertainty as to the outcome. I guess you just have to wait and see what they offer.
