Finding An Experienced Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will notice that there are countless lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise they specialize in your kind of case. This will make the whole process of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, if you follow the following it is possible to define your quest to the right one in almost no time. The first step is to make a list of the lawyers that happen to be listed in the area that specialize in your situation. When you are causeing this to be list you should only include those you have a great vibe about based on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down if you take a while evaluating their site. There you should be able to find just how many years they are practicing and some general information about their success rates. At this time your list should have shrunken further to the people that you felt had professional websites and an appropriate level of experience. You should then make time to search for independent reviews of each and every attorney. Be sure you look at the reviews rather than just counting on their overall rating. The data from the reviews provides you with an idea of the way they connect with their clients and the length of time they invest into each case that they are taking care of. Finally, you will want to meet with no less than the very last three lawyers which may have the credentials you are looking for. This will give you the time to actually evaluate how interested they may be in representing your case. It really is vital that you follow all of these steps to actually find a person which has the correct amount of experience to help you get the ideal outcome.

Trouble With A Lawyer?
I Consulted With A Lawyer About Litigation. His Initial Estimation Was $20,000 And 60 Months. So I Paid That Amount To Contract With Him. Seven Months Later He Requested Additional Retainer Of $10,000 Partly Because The Volume Of My E-Mail Evidence Was More Than He Had Expected, And I Paid Him. Four Months Later He Requested Me To Cover Another Cost Of $7,500 For Him To Consult With An Expert, And I Paid Him. After He Received A Report From The Expert, He Advised Me Either To Withdraw Voluntarily Or To Pay $200,000 Or More. Since Then He Has Not Given Any Answers To My Questions. Are There Any Other Options?
Litigation is expensive. When you retain a lawyer, they will make an "estimate" of the time required to work on your case. The initial $20,000 was based on his hourly rate times the number of hours to review, file, pleadings, depositions and in court. The addle $10,000 for the numerous e-mails could be expected and also for the $7,500 for the expert, since they never do this for free.
But,,,after he got the experts report back, now he wants you to withdraw voluntarily, which sounds like your case is not winnable, so wants out.
To go from $30,000 to now $200,000 more does bear some questions that he needs to answer. Does he need to hire more lawyers to handle this, since this is so complicated, he needs help and cant do alone? Is it for more experts?
"Technically" he must continue to represent you, till you either fire the lawyer or w/draw from this case.
If you feel he did not represent you correctly or question some of the things he has done, then you can file a complaint with the supreme court in the state where you live. The site will have a place where they will have a form to fill out on your complaint.
NO lawyer can tell you if you will win a case, since many times many factors can come into play, that could affect the outcome of your case. But,,,,many lawyers can tell you if they "believe" it is winnable or not, and if after this point, he realizes, your case is most likely a loser, suggest you stop the flow of money.

A Question About Lawyers?
I Am About To Graduate High School...I Am Interested In Becoming A Lawyer, What Do You Need To Become One? How Easy Or Hard Is It To Land A Job After College? I Have A Previous Criminal History (Misdemeanor For A Stupid Fight, Misdemeanor For Possession Of Weed, And A Misdemeanor For Trespassing And Criminal Threats) But It All Got Erased When I Turned 18. Will That Effect Me In Any Way? Is It Really Worth It To Study For A Lawyer Or Should I Choose Something Else? Because It Seems Like Every Single Job Is Over Populated
Dude - You don't become a lawyer by graduating from college. You have to go to law school for three additional years after college and pass the bar examination. If you don't know what it takes to become a lawyer by the time you graduate high school, you are somewhat behind schedule. Just keep in mind that you have to major in a useful major in college (political science, English, Philosophy, etc.), you have to do really well (at least 3.4 or 3.5 gpa), and you have to take the Law School Admission Test (LSAT) and do well on that. The legal field is really crowded right now and it is difficult to get a starting job. People who do well tend to get jobs though.
I Have A Family Law Case That Was Heard Out Of A County Neither Of Us Live In?
None Of Us Reside In Montgomery County.
I Have Lived In California For A Year.
He Moved To Harris County 6 Months Ago.
This Started As A Protective Order From A Family Violence Case.
The After I Moved ..It Went Into The Custody Hearing.
The Issue Is ...The Texas Order Is Impossible And Inreasonable.
First Of All He Is Allowed To Remove Her From Her Resident State Of California
(As Stated In The Order California Is The Resident State) For 2 Weeks At His Expense.
Even Though He Has A 2009 Assult And
Was Recently On Probation And Had It Revoked For Breaking The Protective Order.
Instead Of Jail They Gave Him The Charge Of Crimincal Mischief.
He Has A Steady 23 Years Of Charges Ranging From Assults To Drugs.
Then He Is To Return Her For Two Weeks.....
After That I Am Ordered To Fly Her To Texas For Two Weeks, At My Ecpense And Fullfill
Another Two Week Visitation To Him. I Am In School....I Am Working ..I Have A Sun In Year Round School
It Is Impossible For Me To Do. I Cannot Miss More Than Two Classes Or I Will Not Get My Certifications.
I Am Not Neccisarily Wanting To Exclude Him Entirely Out Of His Life, But I Don.T Think
He Will Return Her. My Stipulation Is, I Donmt Want Him To Leave Her Resident State And
County With Obvious Good Reason. There Is Domestic Violence Involved And He Refused Help.
The Order Has Said To Give 30 Day Notice Before His First Visit And He Has Also Been Given The
The Authority To Designate When I Have To Go To Texas. Regardless Of My Hardship Which I Did Tell The Judge
The Judge Said &Quot; I Trust You Will Be Able To Find A Way&Quot;
He Provided Notice Before The Order Was Signed...So There Was No Order When Notice Was
Provided. Child Support Informed Me They Will Go From The Date The Order Was Signed,
There Can Not Be A Notice, If There Was No Signed Order To Provide Notice For.
Texas Says He Gave Notice In Court Prior To An Order...And Excepted It Before The Order Was Signed.
California Is Enforcing The Order..
The Judge Kept Saying..&Quot; They Live In California , This Order May Not Even Stick. &Quot;
As They Also Kept Reiterating The Fact We Are California Residents; As They Have Instructed
Me To File For Venue.
As I Do Not Have 8 Grand Retainer For A Cali Attorney, I Have Hired A Paralegal Of 25 Years To
Help Me With This Case. We Are Looking For Technicalities To Help Block This Order And
Keep The Child In The State Of California For Visits. She Is Not Safe Going Back In Texas
With A New Conviction And A Steady Criminal Record Including Assult On Me.....
I Cant Imagine Why Texas Wants To Place Such A Liability On Themselves...
We Were Thinking This Case Wasnt Even Heard Out Of The Correct Court.
We Are Looking For Anything To Keep The Baby Here, In The Home State...
We Qualify Under The &Quot;Uccjea&Quot;
But Is That Enough To Keep Her Here In Her Home State? She Is Not Even Three Years Old..
Relying on the paralegal is a very, very bad idea. Particularly in a situation like this.
Paralegals are not lawyers and they are not allowed to give legal advice. It sounds as though this paralegal is providing you with a pseudo legal representation - something that violates California laws and regulations concerning the practice of law. And, in my experience, the paralegals who engage in this type of work are not particularly good at their jobs.
If you lived in Texas before moving to California and you moved the child without the permission of the father, then Texas probably does have jurisdiction over the child. As far as the "correct county?" Did the three of you formerly live in this county before you moved to California? And you say that a paternity action was started. Was that also in this county? If so, then he has a basis to file in that county.
If your paralegal thinks that this is a basis to get the judgment tossed, your paralegal is an idiot.
Additionally, if you appeared in that county (which you apparently did) then you CONSENTED to the jurisdiction of that court. You can't unring the bell now.
My guess is that the Texas judge was irritated with you for leaving the state without the authorization of the court or the father when an action concerning the child (i.e. paternity) was ongoing. So this caused the judge to decide to put the hardship on you to facilitate visitation.
I'm sorry but you are probably not going to get the outcome you are hoping for - particularly with this paralegal.
Ok Well I Jusst Wanted To Know How Much Does A Criminal Lawyer Make A Year? What Is The Highest Paying Lawyer?
A criminal lawyer can make from 50,000 to 200,000+ a year. It all depends on how much work you put into it and how many people know about you. Become famous through a case like O.J [whom is guilty] and you can be the richest lawyer in the world. If you believe in protecting the enviorment and you are for the green party, you won't make as much. Find a job that you are comfortable with and that you can have a family and enjoy it. Being a lawyer will give you all the money in the world, but not all the time to spend it. Remember that.
