I Am Looking For Perferably An Attorney That Can Give Me Some Legal Advice In Regards To Illegal Search Laws?
On 4-5-08 Probation And Parole Came To My Place Of Employment Took Me To My House, Did Not Identify Themselves To Anyone But Myself,Did Not Show A Warrant, And Began Searching. They Specificly Said That They Were There Because They Had Gotten Phone Calls That We Had Illegal Drugs. They Questioned Me Before I Had Been Read My Miranda Rights. They Went Right To Our Bedroom And Began Their Search. They Tried To Question Our 14 Yr. Old Son Without Our Permission.They Asked About My Husbands Safe And I Told Them It Was Not Mine And I Didn'T Even Know The Code To Open It. They Searched Areas That They Knew Were Not Mine. Nobody Supervised The Search They Made Me And My Husband Stay At The Other End Of The Trailer. They Brought 2 Different Agencies With Them, The Sherriffs Office And The Missouri River Drug Task Force And None Of Them Presented Any Type Of Warrant.
Any And All Replys Acknowledgeable And Taken Seriously. Any Answers Are To Have The Same Respect.(Can Give Lots More Info ).
The answers so far are assuming you are on probation/parole. If this is true, and they did, in fact, receive phone calls saying you were involved in narcotics, you are pretty much SOL.
If you're not on probation/parole, then they conducted an illegal search. Anything they found is inadmissible against you, and you may even have cause for a civil suit against the City/County.
When you are on probation/parole, you agree to be subject to search and seizure by law enforcement at any time without a warrant or probable cause. This, in effect, amounts to a waiver of your 4th Amendment rights (although I personally disagree, the word "waiver" has been used in case law).
Therefore, they need no warrant. However, this does not remove all protection. I'm sure there is some case law in your state that says that searches of probationers/parolees cannot be "arbitrary or harrassing" (or similar language). If there were no phone calls, the search may be invalid.
Your story, unfortunately, does not necessarily require that they Mirandize you either. A Miranda reading is not necessary until you are in custody.
"they made me and my husband stay at the other end of the trailer" - HAHA! But seriously, you're not really in custody at this point.
You don't say if they found anything. If they didn't find anything, this isn't really an issue anyway.
How Does A Lawyer Determine If Someone Can Get Alimony Or Maintenance?
Was Married For 7 Years And I Found Out That My Spouse Was Cheating On Me.
The lawyer doesn't determine it. They are merely your representative as to the laws in your jurisdiction.
A judge will decide unless you opt for a mediator and can come to an agreement (also depending on where you live).
Is There A Legal Defense By Demonic Possession For A Crime?
And Since Science Can'T Explain It Doesn'T Mean It Doesn'T Exist, Science Can'T Explain A Lot Of Things, Is It Possible?
But if you were in the UK you could claim the legal defence of "duress" if you can prove that you were being forced to acting criminally.
Note that if you claim this defence the burden of proof is on you to show it - not the prosecution; also in the UK "duress" is not available as a defence against murder. This would mean that you would have to prove "on the balance of probabilities" that you were under demonic posession.
If the court found that on the "balance of probabilities" you were not posessed then you would be convicted as being insane, or just lying.
Legal Advice----Please Help!!?
Ok, I Have Taken Class Action Against “Not Snizzy” A Yahoo Contact, For A Hostile Takeover Of My Bogus Law Firm, Lsk, Which In My Opinion She Has Let Go To The Dogs. I Have My New Bogus Law Firm, Ktrs Involved In This Class Action Suit. I Was Thinking Of Suing Her For Damages In The Amount Of $25,000, The Settling For $3,765.00 Which In Amount I Need For A Settlement Of My Own. The Only Problem Is I Have No Idea Where “Not Snizzy’S” Law Firm Is Situated, Nor Registered. Any Legal Advice Would Be Appreciated.
We at the law firm of Notta, Lotta, & Help, formerly known as LSK aquired during a hostile take over, laugh at your preposterous suggestion.
I have never, nor will ever partake in a hostile take over of any kind.
How dare you suggest such an outlandish thing.
To go forward with the above lawsuit I will need fingerprints, DNA sample, and a Sperm sample.
Here's a supeona to comply with the request forthwith!
You may challenge my supeona in the court of my choosing.
It will be heard before a judge which is biased and and subjective!
Judge Le Chat shall preside at his earliest convenience.
Corporate Lawyers In Massachusettes!!!!?
I Am Considering A Degree In Law After I Graduate High School. There Are Plenty Of Different Fields I Can Go Into, But I Want To Know A Little About Every One Before I Decide.
Please If There Are Any Corporate Lawyers In Ma, Describe Your Job For Me And Your Avergage Salary. Since I Live Close To Boston, It Would Be Better To Know What The Salary Is There Than Some Other City.
Law school is a 3 year degree program after college -- so you should really be looking at getting into the best college possible. By getting into the best college possible, you'll be able to go to the best graduate school or get the best post-college job -- it will keep your opportunities open.
If by corporate lawyers you mean lawyers that do corporate work as opposed to lawyers that go to trial -- then what corporate lawyers do is assist businesses on a variety of transactions. Corporate lawyers tend to specialize unless they work at small firms -- some lawyers help businesses that want to buy or sell other businesses (mergers and acquisitions), some lawyers help companies that want to sell stock or debt in the public markets (capital markets), some lawyers help companies manage their patents (IP), some lawyers give tax advice to companies (tax), some lawyers help form private investment fund (private equity). Day to day though it almost always involves lots of emails, conference calls, drafting lots of forms and having lots of meetings where negotiations and advising takes place. Some corporate lawyers work for companies -- most of the best work for large law firms that companies hire on a per transaction basis. If you like the work it can be rewarding but often, even for the most enthusiastic lawyer, the work is grinding, the pressure is high and the hours can be devastatingly long.
The hierarchy of law firms and lawyer pay is brutal. If you go to a good law school and get into a top tier firm you will make, today, $160,000 before your year end bonus which is usually small (not like investment banking) but will still put you in the $175,000 range likely. But if you don't get into a top tier, I have no idea what you make but its a lot less. So if you don't get into a good college and therefore can't get into a good law school, well, there's no guarantee on what you'll make.
Even if you could be an elite firm lawyer, if you went to a good enough college to get into that law school, you maybe could have gone into investment banking. Banking can be worse in terms of life style but you can make an awful lot more money. The base salary of an analyst might only be $60k but they can get year end bonuses of $160k in the bulge brackets -- and that's for someone who is 23, not someone who has finished another 3 years of law school.
Assuming you can get the best jobs, being a lawyer can promise you with very little risk a very comfortable upper middle class lifestyle but unless you get very lucky you will never have more than a couple million dollars in saving and it will take you awhile to get there and you'll have to work like a dog to do it. Being in investment banking might burn you harder but if you have the strength to make it you'll end up with a lot more cash a lot faster.

Question For Any Criminal Attorneys...?
I Just Finished Jury Duty On A Burglary And Theft Case. Basically, The Defendant Borrowed Her Cousin'S Car To Gain Access To A Gated Community. We Found The Defendant Guilty And It Seamed To Be An Easy Decision For Most Of Us. Our Main Point Of Contention Was Whether She Was The Perp Or Aided And Abetted The Crime(S).
The Thing That Kind Of Bothers Me Was The Defense'S Case Was Mainly &Quot;I Don'T Have The Burden To Prove Anything&Quot;. Their Only Witness Was The Defendant And They Presented Nothing To Back Up Her Story Or Reestablish Her Credibility After She Lied And Gave Inconsistent Accounts. The Defense Attorney Just Mentioned On Several Occasions That The Burden Was On The Prosecution.
Is That A Common Defense & Is Common For A Case That Weak To Be Brought To Trial. Could The Defense Simply Been Relying On The Unpredictability Of Juries?
I Realize The Burden Of Proof Is On The Prosecution, I Just Would Have Expected Something From The Defense.
As a former defense attorney, I can tell you that sometimes you have a client who simply will not take advice. A defendant has an absolute right to a trial. If their defense is unbelievable & they keep telling lies & inconsistent stories & have no corroborating witnesses & refuse to consider some type of plea bargain, there is just nothing you can do to protect them. Private attorneys can withdraw; but public defenders are legally obligated to follow their client's desires & go to trial with whatever good or bad evidence there is.
