Listed below are three important ways to recognize that you've hired the correct lawyer: 1. They Concentrate On Your Sort Of Case Legislation is normally tricky and therefore requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you want a legal representative, seek out person who deals with the issue you're facing. Even though a family member or friend recommends you use a firm they are fully aware, if they don't use a focus that's similar to your case, keep looking. Whenever your attorney is an expert, specifically in the problem you're facing, you understand you've hired the correct one. 2.

Search for practices which have won numerous cases that apply to yours. Although this is no guarantee that you just case will likely be won, it will give you a far greater shot. 3. They Listen And Respond When the attorney you've chosen takes some time to hear your concerns and reply to your inquiries, you've probably hired the right choice. Regardless of how busy they are or how small your concerns seem off their perspective, it's important that they respond to you in a caring and timely manner. From the purpose of view of a regular citizen who isn't informed about the judicial system, court cases might be pretty scary you need updates and also to feel like you're portion of the solution. Some attorneys are merely more suitable to you and the case as opposed to others. Make certain you've hired the best team to your circumstances, to actually can put the matter behind you as soon as possible. Faith within your legal representative is step one to winning any case.

Do you have allodial title for the land? If you don't know then you don't.
1. you don't own the land, the county does. You only own the structure on the land.
2. Odds are liquor laws don't allow anyone to sell liquor for commercial profit without a license. If you have a license probably gives the county or State authority to enforce that law, implied consent to enter the building.
3. They made need a warrant.
4. Are you open to the public? The police are part of the public.
If this is a private non-profit bar in your home, then you are safe.

Get a lawyer, and work out a legally-binding visitation/custody arrangement. Your ex cannot legally keep you from seeing your children and should be required to make accommodations due to your schedule. However, being one of the custodial parents, he also has the right to not release his children into the care of what is, to him, a complete stranger. He doesn't know your boyfriend, and I completely understand how he would feel uneasy about giving his kids into the care of someone he doesn't know.
With that being said, there is nothing you can do about it without taking it to court, which is why you should be getting yourself a lawyer. Until there is a court-ordered binding visitation/custody agreement, there is nothing you can really go after your ex for. You say that you aren't even divorced yet, so there is nothing, legally, you can do about it, except get a lawyer and go to court over it.
And on another note - you just got out of what you felt was a bad relationship, and not even divorced yet. Rushing into another relationship already is the wrong thing to do. You need time to heal, whether you realize it or not. Your primary focus right now should be you and your kids, not some rebound boyfriend.
How Do You Go About Finding And Choosing A Good Criminal Defense Attorney?
I tell all my clients the same thing....... call at least 6 firms in the area that DO NOT do criminal defense work, and ask them who they would use. You'll find the same name pops up over and over again, if the attorneys like him, he's the one to try.
If you call that one and his rates are too high, ask him if he has a junior associate in the firm that you could use. Many times the younger attorney will be your main contact, and you'll get the high powered experienced lawyer for just a couple of hours to make sure things go right.
Remember, 95% of cases in this country are plea bargained... if that's what you're looking at doing, just about any criminal defense attorney will get you the same deal. Sad, but true.
How Much Does A Partner At A Top Law Firm Make?
I Understand That Experience And Level Of Partnership Matters So Please Include That Too
That's a bit subjective depending on what you call a "top law firm" but any descent firm should yield $300k to over $1 million per year or more. Depends on the size of the firm, geographic location of your office (accounting for cost of living in NY vs. Memphis) etc. Then there are lots of perks of course. At this level, your clients (and the firm) will have tons of extras like courtside and box seats, private planes, luxury suites, etc. Also remember that you will work unbelievable hours and not have a lot of time to enjoy these things but it beats a lot of other career choices. This is also the path into politics.

Just Curious. I Have A Good Case And Am Looking For An Attorney And Was Wondering If It Was A Contingency Attorny I Am Looking For. Usually There Payment Is A Percentage Of What Comes Out Of It? Is This Called An Contingency Attorney?
Yes. Be very careful and be sure to have it clearly in writing what they're going to take. Some of them take a percentage of the award PLUS expenses.

Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
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)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
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.
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.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<
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)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
