What Do Trial Lawyers Do?
They represent consumers who are injured at work, in car accidents, defective prescription drugs, cars that catch on fire because of bad parts, etc. They sue people and companies that break the law (civil law). Defense lawyers represent people who are being sued, typically corporations. Republicans don't like trial lawyers because they give to the Democrat party and represent the poor and middle class. The rich can pay $500 per hour to the same fat cats that work for corporate America.
How To Find A Job As A Lawyer?
I Have Been Recently (September) Admitted To The Practice Of Law In The Commonwealth Of Puerto Rico And I Am Struggling To Find A Job As A Lawyer, Can Someone Tell Me How To Find A Job As An Attorney??? Thank You.
Unfortunately, you and thousands others in EVERY state are hard pressed to find jobs since the law field is saturated.
Law schools love to churn out new lawyers each year, with no expectation of finding work. I bet you, they told you of their success rate of all their graduates finding jobs w/in a year, or of big expected salaries?
To add insult to injury, many of you could have huge student loans that you are stuck paying off.
good luck, you will need it.
I found this article of the statistics and validates the problems of an over-satuated field out there.
Do I Have To Have A Divorce Lawyer?
My Divorce Has Been Finalized For Almost Three Years. I Have Custody Of My Two Children, Due To His Abusiveness Which Was Proved To The Court. My Older Daughter Will Be 18 In A Few Months And My Ex-Husband Wants To Modify Support Which Is Understandable. I Have Given $8500 To My Lawyer During The Past Three Months And I Have No Idea What She Has Done For Me. My Lawyer And His Lawyer Are Sending Letters To Each Other Which Is Costing Me A Lot Of Money.
I Want To Go To Court By Myself Without A Lawyer And Defend My Case Myself. It Is Extremely Costly To Have A Lawyer And I Can Not Afford It. The Lawyers On Both Sides Are Filling Up Their Pockets And I Am Seeing No Results. She Has Told Me To Send Her Another $5000 Right Away And She Has Done Nothing.
Is Is Reasonable To Spend This Much Money To Modify Child Support? Do You Think I Can Defend Myself And Is It A Good Idea? I Appreciate Any Help You Can Provide.
Attorneys love to take this type of opportunity to screw you. You can do this without an attorney. Even with one, those charges are robbery. I would report the attorney to the state Bar and do it myself or find another attorney who would charge me reasonable rates. Child support is determined by his income so it is really just a formality. You also have the right to request that he keep paying you until your kids have college degrees.
If you hire another attorney, hire a family lawyer rather than a divorce lawyer. Divorce lawyers keep stirring up trouble to increase their fees. They seldom look for an amicable resolution.
What Should I Be Getting Out Of My Summer Job At A Law Office?
I Am A Law Student And I Feel That My Current Job Is Not Giving Me The Experience I Need To Go Out Into The Legal Profession.
What you get as a Law Clerk, in order of the likelihood you can actually get it:
1. A line on your resume (this is a minimum. if it isn't going to do that much, McDonald's pays better and is more fun).
2. Contacts (not just at that firm, with other firms and judges)
(This is the most important, but often difficult even for those good at this kind of thing, and impossible for those who are not).
3. Insight into how a law firm operates as a business (This can be done in almost any position, but you have to open your eyes and understand what you're seeing, not just focus on what the Boss wants today).
4. Actual experience (Not likely. You're being hired to do "work" that anyone with a high-school education can do, you don't need a law background to run a copier. Few clerks actually do serious legal work).
5. Money (worst reason of all. Almost anything pays better).
I Am Currently In The Middle Of A Nasty Divorce And Am Fighting For Custody Of My Almost Three Year Old Daughter.My Future Ex Husband Has Decided To Move To Alabama.Can He Move And Still Fight Me For Custody?What Steps Should I Take Now?He Filed For A Change Of Venue (We Are In Alaska) And I Asked The Judge For More Time Because His Mom Was Going To Write A Letter Stating That Change Of Venue Should Be Denied.She Is Not Going To Write The Letter Now,She Says Its Pointless Now That He Is Moving Out Of State.What Should I Do Now?Im Am Lost!! I Just Want Whats Best For My Baby Girl.I Am A Student At The University Of Alaska And Cannot Afford An Attorney.I Need Some Sort Of Help.
No court in Alabama has jurisdiction over custody of your child--only Alaska is your child's "home state" and and such the only state that can decide custody issues. He could get the divorce from you in Alabama once he established residency there, but they have no jurisdiction over custody whatsoever.
Look at the pleadings---copy the whoever vs. whoever part and file a "Response" saying that the Motion should be denied based on the fact that Alaska is the child's home state because the child lives there and has lived there for at least the past 6 months and therefore Alaska is the only state that has jurisdiction.
And since he's moved to Alabama be sure to ask for SOLE custody now.
EDIT--since your edit--you need to go get your child and do whatever you have to do to raise her. Don't let his parents get custody (they have certain rights). Get a full time job, go to school part time--or go back in a few years--that's what I did. I didn't finish school until I was 29 b/c I had a baby to take care of--but the point is---I did it. So can you--but right now, put your child first--she has to come before your education at this point. You can get an education anytime, but you only get to lose your daughter once and she's lost forever.
EDIT--YES! Go get her unless there is some file marked order from the Court placing the child with his parents. I don't suggest you disobey a court order--but if there is no OFFICAL court Order--you still have all custody rights and you need to use them. Who gives a **** what the next judge thinks? Do you have the same judge for your divorce that you do for your Order of Protection? (I hope not). Does your school have a law school? If so, they might have a legal clinic that can help you. If not, call legal services. You are not entitled to an attorney since this is not a criminal case, but legal services might can help or call someone recently out of law school--they are probably hungry (meaning they won't put your case on the back burner) and might work out a payment plan with you.
Can A Client Sign A Waiver Excluding An Attorney From Being Sued For Negligence?
If A Lawyer Takes A Retainer And Doesn'T Do Any Work, Can A Waiver Signed By The Client Absolve Them From Being Sued??
If an attorney accepts a retainer and does no work you might have several actions. First, you have an obvious breach of contract, second there exists a tort in negligence and potentially an intentional or gross recklessness tort.
An attorney contract absolving the counsel from any or all of these potential actions is contrary to public policy, likely a product of unfair unequal bargaining (adhesion contract) and likely contrary to State Bar rules. So your answer is NO!
About the greatest limitation on right to bring suit would be to require Arbitration to resolve any breach of the attorney-client relationship.
This will be upheld nearly universally.
