Listed here are three important strategies to know that you've hired the best lawyer: 1. They Specialize In Your Kind Of Case What the law states is normally tricky and that requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you want an attorney, search for one who handles the issue you're facing. Even if a relative or friend recommends you use a good they understand, should they don't possess a focus that's much like your case, keep looking. As soon as your attorney is an expert, especially in the problem you're facing, you know you've hired the right choice. 2. The Lawyer Has A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it can be challenging to win an instance, especially if the team working for you has hardly any experience.

Volunteer In A Law Office?
Hello, I'M Currently Interested In Law But I'M Not A Law Student. Do You Think A Law Office Would Allow Me To Volunteer As An Office Assistant, Or Is That Just Plain Silly.
I would like to make a suggestion: DON'T invest your time in the vocational field of Law.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest TIME and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember: law schools are BUSINESSES - their top concern is making money for themselves.
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................

I Need Legal Help Please. Any Lawyers Out There?
I Was In A Car Accident Where I Swerved Off The Road And Into Another Persons Yard Where I Hit Part Of There Fence And My Tires Messed Up Some Of Her Lawn. I Just Received Papers From Her Insurance Company ( 2 Months After The Accident) And It Says I Owe Almost $3,000. Honestly I Do Not See How This Is So, When I Really Think About It I Can See Doing About 200.00 Worth Or Damage, But Just To Be On The Extremely Fair I Could See It Maybe Going To Around $500.00 But Not Exceeding At All. I Believe She May Have Done Some Sort Of Insurance Fraud. I Was Wondering Legally What I Can Do If Anything To Challenge This. I Am Only 18 And Have No Idea What To Do. Am I Allowed To Challenge Her And Take Her To Court? And Am I Allowed To See Receipts? Did She Have To Have Receipts When She Turned All This In To Her Insurance? Any Help Given Will Be Very Appreciated Thank You So Much.
You need to contact your insurance agency as soon as possible.
Yes, you can challenge her in court and demand proof and receipts of all damage you have done and exactly what she is charging you for.
She may be asking you to pay for an entire new fence and repatching her entire lawn. That's the only reasons I can come up with for why it's come to that amount of money.
It really is insane.
You may also want to hire a lawyer.
What Does A Criminal Defense Lawyer Do?
Can A Criminal Defense Lawyer Only Defend The Criminal Or Can It Defend The Opposing Side? Like If There Is A Criminal And If There Is A Witness. Can I Take Any Side That I Want. Also My Friend Told Me That A Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Only Take The Criminal'S Side And Not The Other. She Said That The Government Can Only Take The Opposing Side? Can I Take Any Side? And Please Make It Simple! Thanks!
In a criminal case there are 2 attorneys involved: 1 representing the Defendant (the person charged with the crime) and 2. the prosecutor/or district attorney (same thing just called different things in different states). The prosecutor works for the government, usually a county, and pursues the case on the states behalf. Witnesses and victims may have attorneys, but they take no part in the proceedings.
NO lawyers can go from side to side, not even in civil litigation, that would be called a conflict of interest (which I will not go into defining because you asked that we keep it simple ;)
How To Become A Corporate Lawyer?
I Am Not A An American National
But I Want To Become A Corporate Lawyer In Us
It cost about $80,000 to go to law school which takes 3 years. That's after you get a college degree. But you should know that there are over 30,000 unemployed lawyers in the U.S. and that number is growing by about 5,000 every year. There are no jobs for lawyers. You would be a fool to go to law school and then not be able to get a job. Choose another career field and forget about becoming a lawyer. You'll never get a job as a lawyer. They are a dime a dozen.
Criminal Injuries Compensation Claim And Common Law?
If Someone Wins A Criminal Injuries Compensation Claim For Mild Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Approx $15,000 Can They Then Go For More Money Against The Convicted Person Under Common Law?How Much Could They Get If They Could?
Common law was in England 100's of years ago. This fight is in civil court and you need to talk to a good civil lawyer about your claim. If the criminal proses is over, this is your course of action.
