The first step is to generate a list of the lawyers that are listed in your area specializing in your needs. While you are causeing this to be list you ought to only include those which you have a great vibe about according to their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their website.

Looking For Advice. Law School With Wife And Baby?
This Is Probably Going To Be A Little Lengthy So I Really Appreciate Anyone Who Reads The Whole Thing.
He'S My Situation: Going To A Decent School As A Transfer Student For My Ba. Us News Ranks It In The Top 40 Universities In The Us. I Got An Aa Degree In Administration Of Justice, Left Community College With A 3.25 Gpa. My Transferred Gpa Is About 3.4, Took My First Quarter At The New College And Did Roughly The Same In Terms Of Gpa. I Have A 1 Year Old Baby Girl And A Beautiful Wife.
Problem Is That None Of Us Work, Getting By On The Goodness Of Family Members And Financial Aid. I Feel Like A Total Mooch On Both Society And Family But I Want To Get A Good Education So Bad. My Wife Doesn'T Say No But I Don'T Think She Wants Me To Go To School Past My Ba, I'Ve Always Wanted To Be A Lawyer But I Never Thought I Was Good Enough Until I Got Accepted Into The University I'M In Now, And Now I Feel Like I Can Do Anything. (I Did Poorly When I Started Community College Only Passed A Few Classes And Dropped Out, I Came Back A Year Later Because I Was Thinking I Would Get No Where With My Life And Then Started Doing Really Well, This Is When I Meet My Wife).
From Community College I Figured I'D Get Into Law Enforcement (And That'S What I'Ve Been Telling Everyone) I'D Get To Be Close To The World Of Law Without Having To Be That Smart But Now I Feel Like I Want More (Maybe Selfishly). I Don'T Want To Drag My Family Through More Years Of Not Earning Any Money But I Also Wants What'S Best For My Family (My Baby Girl And Wife) And I'M Thinking Being A Lawyer Might Be A Better Way Of Doing That. Maybe I'M Trying To Convince Myself, But If I'M A Lawyer Then They Won'T Have To Worry About Things Like Me Getting Shot And Less About Money After I Get Out Of Law School. On The Flip Side, We'D Be In Debt Like 100K From Law School Loans (Probably) By The Time I Finally Got Out (3 Extra Years).
***Tldr: Got Aa Degree In Law Enforcement, In Decent School Now For My Ba, But I Have A Baby And Wife. Should I Try For Law School Despite The Finical Hardships?
Is It Worth It To Put My Family Through This?
For Any Lawyers Or Law Students Out There: I Haven'T Taken An Lsat, But If I Started Studied For It Now (Junior In College), Based On What I Told You About Myself, What Type Of Law School Do You Think I Could Get Into? Think I Could Get Into A Tier 1 School?
Any Advice In General?
I Really Appreciate Any Advice I Can Get.
Sounds like you're going through a lot! You're doing the right thing by asking a lot of questions and wanting to consider how your actions will affect your wife and child. The first thing I would do is talk to talk to an adviser at your school, either your academic adviser or a career adviser or counselor. If you're paying tuition at the school, this should be free of charge. Take advantage of this!
If you want to start doing research on your own as well, I would look at the US News and World Report rankings for Graduate Schools. It's a magazine that comes out every year and may also be available on their website (see link below). That will give you an idea of where you could get into based on your profile (GPA, LSAT score, extracurriculars, etc.). There are also several books that talk about making a decision about going to law school. Browse in a Barnes & Noble, or look on Amazon.
Since money is an issue for you, I would also think about how you and your wife can sustain things economically in the near future, let alone down the road if you have graduate loans. Are you working? Is she working? Are your parents or her parents able to support you at all? Though you may want to jump into law school, you may have to put things on hold for now in order to stabilize yourself financially and make sure that being a lawyer is what you want to do. You can always work after college, and apply for law school when you're ready. Law school is a big commitment and costs lots of money, so it might be better to play it safe than to try to go right after you graduate.
But first things first--talk to an adviser or advisers, do some more research about law school, and don't make any drastic plans before understanding how your wife feels.
Also, take a practice LSAT and see what you get. There are prep books out there. Your school's libraries probably have them (again, free of charge!) and if your school has a career center, they should have them too.
Best of luck!
Disability Lawyer Help ?
I Called A Disability Lawyer Today On Behalf Of My 3Yr Old Son And She Told Me That She Doesn'T Do Disabilties Cases For Toddlers. She Told Me To File An Appeal For Myself Because They Usually Deny The First Two Times You File. I Had Ben Looking For Sometime For A Lawyer. So When She Told Me To File Online Today For Myself I Did But When I Got Home For Work Another Lawyer I Had Contacted 3Wks Earlier Suddenly Decided To Call To Say That She Was Out Of Town For A Couple Of Weeks An Now That She Is Back Can Handle My Case.
I Was Wondering Can She Still Do My Case Even Tho I Filed An Appeal For Myself?
If you have already filed the appeal,do not hire the lawyer until you learn the outcome of the appeal. If you are denied again,then hire her. Once you hire a lawyer,they are entitled to payment. If your appeal gets approved on your own work,why pay the lawyer for doing nothing for you.

Where Can I Find A Lawyer That Looks Into My Case For Free?
I Am Pretty Serious About My Case, And Wanted To Know If I Have A Case Or Not.. Maybe Lawyer Search Engine?
If you are serious about your case, contact the local lawyer referral service. The lawyer to whom you are referred will consult with you for about half an hour for $25 or so. You will find out if you have a case or not.
One good way to know that you have a winnable case is that the lawyer offers to take the case on contingency contract. That means you pay the lawyer nothing further except court costs. Your lawyer gets paid when she wins and collects on the judgment.
Pa Drunk Driving Laws?
Ok, I'm Currently Married But May Be Seperating From My Wife. She Doen't Want Me To Go Out And Drink And Drive Home Because She Says That She Would Have To Pay The Fine,Not Me, And Her Insurance Would Go Up, Not Mine.The Car In Question Has Both Our Names On The Loan And Both On The Title ( Not Sure How It's Written On The Title) So,,,,I Think This Is A Bunch Of Crap. If I Get Caught With A Dui, I Go To Jail,Loose My Privilage To Drive, And Have To Pay The Fines. Just Because Her Name Is On The Loan And Title Of The Car In Question, Whould She Be Affected By This At All? Thanks For Your Help!!
It's not about fines; it's about killing people (8x more people killed by drunk drivers each yer than ALL gun deaths). If you even think that it's worth the risk to drink and drive you have no business being on the road.
Grow up or turn in your license before you kill someone. And don't give me that "I'm a good driver crap."
