You want one with a very good record, who issincere, efficient, and wins cases. You would like to have confidence that they will stand for you thoroughly and charge you reasonably for their services.

What Type Of Professional Should I Seek In Providing Advice?
I Live In California And I Need Advice Regarding The Following. My Partner Passed Away This Year And We Shared A Couple Of Things Together. Bank Account (Checking) And A Timeshare. He Was Still Legally Married. Who Should File His 2007 Taxes? What Would Happen If His Taxes Weren'T Filed? Also, If The Timeshare Is Sold, Would The Wife Be Entitled To Any Of The Proceeds?
Consult a probate attorney. You will need legal advice and maybe legal assistance to sort out what is yours from what belongs to his wife.
You didn't mention whether he had a will, or whether he or his wife were legally separated or had filed for divorce. Any of those could have an effect on things. California is a community property state, in which everything a man and wife own or owe is legally presumed to be equally the property of the other partner, and in which the property of the one who dies passes to the one who survives.
When someone dies, his bank accounts are normally frozen until the bank receives advice from the court or from the executor, or both. If you and he shared the bank account, his wife will have a claim against some or all of the funds in the account, since she was still his wife. If you claim that some of the money in the account was yours, it will be necessary for you to show records that establish what portion of the account should be credited to you.
It will be the responsibility of the executor of his estate to file his income tax returns for 2007, and if there is a refund, that will belong to his estate. If there is no executor, the probate court may appoint one or his wife will, by default, become the executor. If his tax return for 2007 is not filed, and he owed money to the IRS or to the California Franchise Tax Board (for those who do not live in California, the FTB is our state taxing agency), his wife will be responsible, since they were still legally married.
What happens to the timeshare depends upon who owned it prior to his demise. If you and he owned it as partners, then his wife will be entitled to his share. If the ownership is fuzzy, and not clearly defined, she might be able to get it all.
Whats Better Lawyer Or Doctor?

Lawyer. Long hours, but not as bad as Doctor. Lawyers can schedule things. Docs can't schedule when emergencies or epidemics happen.

You need to contact a lawyer to petition the courts about a custody and visitation agreement, as well as child support. Pick a lawyer that specializes in family law. Your parents should be able to help you choose one. Make sure than anything regarding the safety of your son is well documented. The next time his father hits him or neglects him in ANY way, call the police. When you file for custody, you can request that the father undergo a psychological evaluation and drug testing if there is sufficient evidence of a safety issue. Good luck!

record all phone conversations and clearly state at the beginning and the end that this is NOT legal advise...
there is no way to deal with this one question at a time, your volunteers need to focus on providing information and not determining if each answer they provide is worded perfectly....
you need/MUST HAVE a disclaimer at the onset and again at the end....
and be sure to record all conversations for your own protection....
it would be good if with your disclaimer you would provide contact information for the local housing authority and legal advocacy group
How To Be A Lawyer (Lawyers Please)?
I Want To Become A Lawyer And Have Some Questions. I Know There Is 4Years Of College And 3 Years Of Law School.
Is The Lsat And The Bar Exam Reasonable Tests Like The Sat? Or Is It Very Hard. I Mean Is It A Test That Can Be Passed If You Study Or Is It A Test That Even If You Study, A Hard Test To Pass.
I Also Hear The Job Competition Is Pretty High? So If I Was To Become A Lawyer Would Finding A Job Be Hard And Difficult?
I Hear Lawyers Make About 70,000 To 150,000 A Year. Is This True?
The Most Important Question Is Employment. How To Be Employed After Becoming A Lawyer
The LSAT is like the SAT; multiple choice, with a few different types of questions. Standardized exam, fairly easy.
The Bar Exam for each state differs; however, each state does have a 100 question multi-state exam based upon the core subjects of Torts, Contracts, Criminal Law/Criminal Procedure, Civil Procedure (Federal), Evidence, and Property (?). The exam tests you on nuances of the areas of law; the best way of answering is to eliminate the bad choices, leaving the best choice.
There are also essay exams covering those, and other subjects; differing on jurisdiction, such as Corporations, Community Property.
There is also a Performance Examination, essay style, in which you are directed to address an issue in a memo to a partner, letter to the client, et al, with research info, such as case law and statutes which you must use, in providing your answer.
Tougher exam in some states more than others; in California, the exam takes 3 days; in most other states, only 2 or even only 1.
Competition is very high in California, New York, and any other big city; however, there are less desired (bad term!) areas of law which always need attorneys, such as family law, workers compensation law, labor law, et al. Trial attorneys get the big bucks, but you can make a good living finding a niche area of law.
As far as spectrum of pay, most lawyers in California, and probably any other big city make between $50,000 -- $200,000; smaller city firms generally pay less.
If you have a science-based undergraduate degree, such as engineering or chemistry, you should obtain your LLM in intellectual property and get into Copyright/Patten/Trademark Law. This area of law really pays the big bucks.
BTW, if you embark on this journey, say good by to your significant other. Most law students end their relations during law school, due to the long hours and stress. Also, strange things occasionally occur after study group sessions break up.
Unless you graduate from a top-tier law school, expect your first job to be a dud; dud pay, dud bosses, slave labor. But, you need the experience to build up your credibility, as it is known as a "practice."
