You need one with a decent track record, who isfrank, reliable, and wins cases. You really want to have assurance that they will defend you thoroughly and bill you fairly for their services.

Work-Comp Law Question: Do I Even Still Need My Lawyer?
I Have Been Recieving Work Comp Checks, Of Which My Lawyer Has Taken 1/3 Of, For Two Years. Nothing Whatsoever Has Been Done About My Case. I Have A 25% Total Disability Rating. (We Would Argue My Rating Is Much Higher, I Am An Rn Who Now Has Numerous Physical Restrictions And Cannot Be On Her Feet More Than 20Min At A Time. No Hospital Will Hire Me) My Lawyer Says The Company May Just Be Paying Me My Weekly Check And Waiting Me Out Until The Rating Runs Out.
Here Are My Questions:
1. Will The Company Keep Paying Me Weekly If I Fire My Lawyer
2. Will I Get A Settlement Still For My 25% Permanent Impairment Rating?
3. How Would Firing My Lawyer Hurt Me, He Has Taken Thousands Of Dollars For My Case And I Have Not Heard One Word, Ever, And Now I Find Out They Are Probably Just Going To Wait It Out? Why Am I Paying Him One Third Of My Income???
I Have A Problem With People Stealing My Money.
dont fire your lawyer until you get your settlement!!! its real hard to get it without one,and yes i have heard of them paying the weekly thing until the rating runs out.time to tell your lawyer you want to settle..

Help! Going Through Nasty Custody Battle And I Need A Lawyer.?
I Need A Lawyer In The Springfield, Oregon Area To Help With A Custody Battle That Will More Than Likely Be Dragged Out. Both Sides Are Seeking Custody On The Grounds That The Other Side Does Not Take Care Of The Children. However, The Other Sides Entire Story Is Mostly Lies Where We Have Documented Proof.
Call the State Bar of Oregon and see if they will give you a referral to a Family Law attorney or if they do not give referrals they may be able to refer you to an agency that does give referrals. You may want to contact legal aid in your area also if they can't help you they can probably tell you who can.
Questions About Lawyers?
How Many Types Of Lawyers Are There? What Do They Specialize In?Can U Give Me Examples Of What Types Of Cases They'D Be In? And What Wood Be Their Yearly Income???
Thanks In Advance
The previous posters are correct.
I hope you aren't considering law school. Please be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. >>>>>>>>Please do more research first.
>>>>>>>>>>>Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession.
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 and crumbling vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. 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)
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with 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.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
>>>>>>>>>>>Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
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.............
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..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

Good spelling/grammar are VERY important in the field of Law.
If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the field of >>>Healthcare! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that this is where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, and belief. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. >>>>>Please be careful and do your research.)
Legal Advice About Cops Not Believeing Me When Reporting A Crime?
My Guidance Counsellor Convinced Me To Go Forward About A Rape Thta Happened To Me. I Told Them As Much As I Could But It Only Happened A Few Days Ago And I'm Sstill A Little Shaken Up. Around The End The Woman Told Me Basically She Didnt Believe Me Because Of All The Holes In My Story, When The Only Reason I Came Forward Was To Pput Out A Warning That Someone Like That Was In The Area. She Even Said If I Was Lying I Could Be Arrested For Mischief, And I Was Stunned She Would Even Dare Say That To Me. Also That If She Found A Witness That Counteracts My Statement(Not Proves) I Could Be Arrested. I Think That They Were Ridiculous And Am So Mad I Just Want It To Go Away Because I Don't Need This. What Do I Do?
Seek the assistance of a rape counseling service or hotline, they will help you with your case, as well as, communicating with the police.
Legal Advice For Commercial Renter?
My Family Owns A Small Business In Gilroy, Ca. Over The Past Year We Have Really Been Struggling To Stay Afloat. We Have Fallen Several Months Behind On Our Rent, And Our Landlord Is Unwilling To Work With Us Any Longer (We Do Understand, And He Is Entitled To His Money, But We Just Dont Have It). He Has Served Us With A 3 Day Pay Or Quit Notice, And Come Monday Locks Will Be On The Doors. We Have Told Him We Would Be Able To Get Him More Than 1/2 Of The Money Owed By The End Of The Month, But I Guess He Is Just Tired Of Waiting, And Wants An Empty Building. Nonetheless, We Also Have Asked Him To Fax A Copy Of Our Lease Agreement, But He Is Refusing To Give Us A Copy Till Monday (Probably In The Fear We Will Seek Legal Advice Over The Weekend). My Question Is, Can He Legally Do This? Put Locks On The Doors Monday Without Leaving Us A Chance To Clear The Bulding? (It Would Have Been Impossible To Move Everything Out Even With The 3 Days). Also, Can He Refuse To Give Me A Copy Of My Lease Even Though I Demand It?.... Any Help Or Advice Is Greatly Appreciated, Thank You
In most states he can lock you out for non-payment. You understand that. Having a copy of the lease would be nice but it won't really help you now. You have to get your personal items out of the building now.
It is the law that a tenant must be given a copy of the lease at the time of signing. If he did this, he does not have to furnish you with a 2nd copy. If he did not, he broke the law. The problem for you is proving how you were "damaged" by his actions.
When his property sits vacant for 3 months after you are gone, he will be more interested in having you back.
