Finding An Experienced Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will notice that there are numerous lawyers in your town that advertise that they concentrate on your type of case. This can make the whole process of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, should you follow the tips below you will be able to restrict your quest on the right one out of very little time. Step one is to generate a listing of the lawyers which are listed in your neighborhood that specialize in your situation. When you are causeing this to be list you ought to only include those you have an effective vibe about based on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down by taking a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you will be able to find how many years they are practicing and some general information about their success rates. At this point your list must have shrunken further to individuals that you just felt had professional websites along with an appropriate volume of experience. You should then make time to lookup independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure you see the reviews rather than just depending on their overall rating. The details within the reviews will give you a concept of the way that they communicate with their clients and the time they invest into each case that they are focusing on. Finally, you will want to meet up with at least the last three lawyers who have the credentials you are searching for. This provides you with some time to genuinely evaluate how interested they can be in representing you and your case. It really is important to follow many of these steps to actually find someone containing the best degree of experience to obtain the best possible outcome.

How To Find Out Whether An Employment Lawyer Is Really A Good One Or Not?
I Am Thinking To Have Consultation(S) With Some Employment Lawyer(S). I Deeply Wonder How To Find Out How Capable A Lawyer Is. I Assume Everyone Would Say Himself Or Herself Is Of Great Ability, Especially When They Want To Take The Case. So I Would Want Some Different Sources To See A Lawyer'S Capability, Preferably Even Before I Have The Consultation For Which Most If Not All Charge Fees. The Consultation Fee Is Not The Problem, But Finding Out He Or She Is Much Incapable After Spending The Money Is Not That Good Of An Option.
If Any Person Who Is Either Experienced Or Of Legal Training Background, Please Provide Your Expertise Suggestion.
Thank You Very Much For The Advices.
You can look them up in the Martindale-Hubbell law directory (which is usually available at the library) which will give you an idea of their career path -- including how many published cases they were involved in.
You can call the state bar and/or Board of Professional Responsibility to see if any charges for ethics violations have been brought against them.
The best way to find a lawyer for a given practice area IMHO is to call other lawyers in the region who don't list that practice area, and see who they refer you to when they say "we don't handle that kind of matter." Usually they will give you the name of someone who does, and it's usually someone they've worked with in the past and respect as a fellow professional.
Malaysian(Lawyers) Do You Offer Free Legal Advice To The Needy?
I Was Thinking Of Creating A Firm Which Offers Free Legal Advice To Those Who Can'T Afford It. Used To Do So Back In Arizona. I Have The Capital ,But I Am Short On Man Power.Besides I Need To Study The Malaysian Law Too. Do You Know How And Where I Could Find Help?
i would think the government or law council would have such non profit or legal aid organisation. im not sure i heard new lawyers are required to do some probono work. otherwise nuh highly unlikely a private law firm would be giving free advice... thats like... see a pig climb the tree.
anyway. well if you are trained overseas, and intend to return to malaysia, betcha have to do clp. which well i heard is extremely hard to pass if you dont have connections or ahem ahem the protected species. but it's not impossible :)
good luck mate
Do I Have Cooperate With A Defense Attorney ?
My Boyfriend And I Got Into Some Mess. The State Wants Me To Be Their Witness And Testify Against My Boyfriend But I Refuse To. They Are Saying If I Do Not Testify I Can Be Held With Contempt Of Court And Incriminate Myself. They Also Said I Cannot Plead The 5Th And Have I Have To Talk. I Am The Attorneys Witness For The State, The Attorney Is Trying To Force Me To Tell Him What Happened. I Have Rights ! Do I Have To Talk To Him ? Only Person I Need To Talk To Is The Judge Right ?
Don't you mean prosecutor? The Defense attorney is the one who represents your boyfriend.
Yes, you must cooperate with the prosecutor if you are subpoenaed top testify. Your refusal to testify can result in you being charged with Contempt of Court. And you must testify truthfully, or risk being charged with perjury. There is qualified immunity for spouses that prevent one spouse from being compelled to testify against the other under certain conditions. But that does not apply to boyfriends and girlfriends. The 5th amendment only protect you from SELF incrimination. If you are asked about something that YOU did, you can plead the 5th. But of you are asked about what someone else do, you cannot.
Yes, you cam cooperate with your boyfriend's defense attorney of you like. But if it appears that you are altering your testimony both you and he could be in trouble.
Do I Have A Medical Malpractice Case?
I Got My Merina Iud Birth Control About Three Months Ago And Now I Am Getting Surgery To Remove It. I Came To The Hospital Yesterday (08/03/2012) Bc I Was Having Pains In My Stomach On The Left Side By My Hip And I Had A Fever Since The Night Before. So I Came In And My Heart Rate Was 141 (Which Is High) And They Gave Me Fluids And My Heart Rate Kept Getting Higher. Then My Fever Went Up To 102.3
And They Did All Kinds Of Tests And Still Cant Figure Why Im Spiking Fevers Seeing That My Highest Fever Was 103.9 Last Night (08/03/2012) Bc All My Tests Are Normal But My Iud (The Merina) Got Out Of My Uterus Somehow And Is Floating Around In My Belly (In The Peritoneal Cavity) They Think That The Nurse Inserted The Iud Poked It Through My Uterus Or It Floated Up Through My Fallopian Tubed And The Doctors Also Say That They Have Never Seen Or Heard Of Anything Like This Before.
I Am Very Upset About This Seeing That I Have A 4 Month Son And I Had A C-Section With Him And A Few Weeks After Having My Son, I Had To Get My Gall Bladder Removed And Now I Am Having Another Surgery To Get My Birth Control Removed.
So.. I Guess I Am Asking If Anyone Has Heard Of This Happening, Had This Happen, And If I Have A Medical Malpractice Case That I Can File Against Planned Parenthood.......???
Probably not. I know it sounds like a $hit answer but how attorneys figure out a medical malpractice case is more business than medicine, meaning if there is enough money to recover in damages for THEM to make it worth their while not you. Planned Parenthood is classified as a not-for-profit, which we all know they have millions of revenue but classed as a non-profit you would be hard pressed to find an attorney who would be willing to do this considering the bad press it will no doubt bring. Now, if you were able to learn that they routinely inserted IUD's improperly and caused several women distress and undo corrective surgery then you would be talking about a class action suit and the lawyers would probably clamor over each other to take it on regardless of who it's against.
Also, the determining factors to even get an attorney to consider malpractice is that YOU must first prove that there was in fact human error (not just suspect it but be able to prove it) and at who's hands it came...the layers, believe it or not, won't do that for you because again, there's no money in that! Without medical professionals that are willing to stand up against other medical professionals and no support from law firm P.I.'s, how are you supposed to do that?
Lastly, you have to determine what your damages were. If you have insurance that's picking up the tab for the surgery, you're not out that money. Pain and suffering in a case like this isn't worth enough to them to warrant a suit. The fact that you've had several surgeries in the past few months questions your personal health rather than the care you've received, and that goes against you.
(FYI, it's not that uncommon for IUD's to shift actually, which is why they aren't terribly popular choices for birth control, and it will make it that much more difficult to pin the fact that it did shift on human error.)
But hey, it costs nothing to call a firm who specializes in medical malpractice and ask just to be sure. I only answered because just last month I had an ER surgical procedure in which the ER surgeon actually admitted "torturing" me and personal fault for his inability to properly anesthetize me before taking the scalpel to me, and he did this in front of my husband so I have an eye and ear witness! In the process I believe he caused me nerve damage that I didn't go in there with and have an appointment with a specialist to determine if that's the case. The information I just shared with you is what I was told by a medical malpractice firm when I inquired, and was told that he was guilty of misconduct and should be reported to the State (why? So THEY can fine him and profit?!) but that it wouldn't render enough revenue for the law firm to go after him on my behalf. Of course if I learn through the specialist that there is nerve damage, especially if it is permanent, I will find another firm who will assist and never return to the one that told me what I've shared because I think they're turds for it.
Good luck though. I hope you make a full recovery.
What Is Usually Done With The First Visit With A Divorce Attorney?
Do mean what happens at the first visit?
You and the Attorney have a general discussion about divorce in your State, including your grounds for the divorce. The Attorney advises you about State laws concerning custody/visitation/spousal support/child support, division of assets and debts.
He/she will give you an estimate of how many hours he/she "predicts" he/she will need to work on your divorce, including preparation time, time in Court, time on the telephone, any and all time spent. He/she will quote you an hourly rate (in my area about $275 an hour), explain the billing procedure - usually monthly. If the Attorney has paraprofessionals (who cannot, by law, give legal advice) their hourly for all they do is much lower than the Attorney's rate.
The Attorney will ask you for a retainer and will bill hours against the retainer until the retainer is gone. In some cases the Attorney then begins to bill you monthly. Sometimes the Attorney requests another retainer. The minimum retainer in my area is $3,000.
Then you either sign a retainer agreement and pay the retainer (money) or you decide to seek another Attorney or - in some cases - not file for divorce.
In general, the "moneyed party" (the party with the better income) is asked to pay for the legal fees of the other party. Unless there is a huge difference in income/assets this is usually denied by the Judge.
Pregnet With My Boyfriends Baby, And Not Legaly Separated Or Divorced Form My Husband.?
About 10 Months Ago I Finally Got The Courage To Leave My Husband Of 5 Years. The Marrage Has Been Over For The Last 2 Years. We Have 2 Beautiful Girls Together. Well For The Last 10 Months I Have Been With My Boyfriend, He Has Been My Rock And My Night And Shinning Armor Thew This Whole Emoshional Roller Coaster With My Husband. Well Just 2 Weeks Ago I Found Out That My Boyfriend And I Are Going To Have A Baby. My Boyfriend Is So Excieted And I'M Really Nerves. Well My Boyfriend Wants Me To Move In With Him Not Work Just Stay Home With The Kids. This Is What I Have Always Wanted To Be A Stay At Home Mom To Raise My Kids. Well My Husband Has Told Me That He Wants To Take The Kids And Run. Well My Questions Is Do You Think My Husband Can Take My Kids From Me Due To We Are Not Leagly Seperated Or Divorced And Pregnet With My Boyfriend Baby?
“do you think my husband can take my kids from me due to we are not leagly seperated or divorced and pregnet with my boyfriend baby?”
Can he get custody merely because you’re pregnant with another man’s child? No.
Is it going to end up being a battle because you’ve moved his children in with this man? It very well could. It depends on how much he wants to push it, if he can dig up any dirt on the man, etc.
I do think you need to reconsider quitting your job, because when you go to court your income will be ZERO. You can’t support your children with zero income. Yes, boyfriend will be providing for you, but still YOUR income will be zero. Boyfriend is not obligated to support your kids and at any time he could ‘remove’ his support (I know, you’re sure he won’t do that, but he can).
I’d highly suggest that you talk to a local attorney before you do anything.
By the way, if your husband is threatening to take the kids and run, then you need to get a temporary custody order, because if you don’t have that he can waltz right into the school/babysitter/etc and pick them up (without a temporary custody order, he has just as much right as you do to pick up those children).
