Become A Florida Family Law Attorney?
What Are The Best Steps To Become A Florida Family Law Attorney And About How Long Does It Take? Also, Any Idea On The Cost?
You need college and law school. If you do it at the normal pace, that is 4 years for your Bachelors and another 3 years for law school.
Good college courses that will help you be a great family law advocate include tax and accounting, because so much of what you will do involves splitting the estates in divorce.
Develop good writing and speech skills.
In law school, I would take every trial procedure course available - once you stomp a few opponents in litigation, your reputation will often allow you to negotiate your cases into an acceptable settlement. Also take any arbitration and mediation courses you can get - an ongoing trend in family law cases.
Take another tax course and a Florida real estate law course.
And, of course, Family Law and the core law courses.
Good luck to you - which law schools are you looking at? Stetson? FS? UFL?
How Hard Is It To Revoke Guardianship?
I Gave Gaurdianship Up About 8 Years Ago Because I Was On Drugs Very Young And Not Financially Stable Now I Am Financially Stable An Been Off Drugs For Over 3 Years And I Want My Daughter Back Now
Guardianship or custody? 8 years with someone else sounds too long for guardianship. Did you have to sign any legal paperwork? I have legal custody of a grandchild for the same reasons you had. We had to secure a lawyer and he said guardianship was for temporary care. For example if a couple or single parent had to move far away for work (a year or so at the most) and couldn't take their child. They would give guardianship to a family member or close friend. Legal custody, however gives us the right to raise the child the way we want. We have as much right as if we had adopted that child. But the parents had to sign those rights over to us. In a 4 page document our rights are stated as "having sole custody." We allowed visitation when it was safe, etc. If either one of the parents wants to regain sole custody, they would have to hire an attorney and challenge the court's original decision.
Have you been in contact with your daughter and the family she's been with? I feel like there's some information missing from your question. That's okay, but as asked, it's hard to give a really good answer.
Question For Anyone Familiar With Attorney Or Lawyer Employment?
I Have A Question That Is Sort Of Complicated. I Have Asked It Several Times But Have Not Gotten Very Good Answers. I Have Always Loved The Law And Have Always Wanted To Be A Lawyer. I Live In Mississippi And Am Going To The University Of Ms (Ole Miss) Law School Next Year.
I Went To Millsaps And Made A'S So I Am Fairly Confident In My Ability To Do Well In Law School (Not That Undergrad Is Comparable, But I Am Willing To Work). I Always Hear People Say That If You Don'T Go To A &Quot;Top Tier&Quot; School And Graduate In The &Quot;25Th Percentile&Quot; Then You Are Screwed. But When I Get Out I Actually Would Like To Work In A &Quot;Small&Quot; Firm In Ms With Just A Few Lawyers. I Also Do Not Expect That Great Of A Paycheck (55K Or Somewhere In That Area).
I Am Asking This Question Because Ole Miss Is Obviously Not A Top Tier Law School, Although It Is Well Respected Within The State. If I Make &Quot;Good&Quot; Grades, Will I Be Able To Get A Decent Job With A Small Firm?
Absolutely. If you wanted to go to NYC and work with a Wall Street firm, you should go to any Ivy League school. If you want to stay in Mississippi, go to Ole Miss. I never had any desire to leave my adopted state and I went to the only law school in my state. It never has hampered my careet and after your first job, no one cares anyway. I think you'll make a lot more than 55K too, unless you begin at a government job. Beginning at the District Attorney's/Public Defender's office actually is a good way to get quick trial experience which makes you much more employable. Almost all the successful attorneys I know went to a state school. They got great jobs without massive student loans. I've been an attorney for more than 25 years and going to a state school was not the slightest hinderance. Even your grades don't matter much after you pass the bar exam. I was asked for my law school transcipts when I got my first job, then never again. One hint--study hard for the LSAT. Take a few weeks to devote yourself to doing nothing but taking practice LSAT sample exam. Fell free to email me for more personal information. EDIT: I can back after reading the first two answers, which were excellent. I really agree with the networking comment. It has helped me tremendously. I've gotten to the point in my career where I know all the local attorneys and we never fight--we represent our clients in a cordial and professional manner.
A Good Injury Lawyer In North Jersey?
I Got Into A Car Accident Two Days Ago And Just Wanted To Consult With Someone On What To Do. Anybody Have Any Suggestions On Who To Contact Someone Good With Reasonable Prices. Thanks
viktorphs, I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I was hurt once when a car backed over my left foot at work. My company tried to settle with me quickly because they knew it wasn't my fault. I called a nearby injury lawyer in my city who provided me excellent advice and I was able to get a small settlement to cover my medical bills that weren't covered by my primary insurance. I'd suggest you find a accident lawyer in your city. http://www.accidentlawyerlocator.com My personal injury lawyer was willing to answer any and all questions I had because they hope to make some money at the same time. Try visiting a injury lawyer to see if they can help.
Heop everything works out.
Legal Advice For A Dog Attack?
Last Week I Visited A Friend And Her Boyfriends Dog Was In Front Of Her Door, As I Tried To Walk To The Front Door The Dog Went Behind Me And Bit My Leg. The Owner Of The Dog Is The Boyfriend (Who Witness The Attack & Said &Quot;Oh Well, Not My Problem&Quot;) But My Ex Friend Said She Would Take Full Responsibility For The Attack (At The Time-- And I Also Have This Conversation Via Text Messages). Needless To Say Now She Is Going Back On Her Word. Do I Have The Right To Take Her To Small Claims Court? Not Only Do I Not Have Medical Insurance And Was Admitted To Emergency, Paid Over $100 In Medication, The Dog Ruined A Brand New Pair Of Expensive Pants, Nightmares Of Random Animals Biting Me In The Same Location And The Fear Of Pit Bulls And Other Dogs That Customers Bring To My Current Place Of Employment.
Thanks For The Help.
Well, in this awesome litigious country, you can take people to small claims court for ANYTHING.
But you are asking if you have a case or not. You do.
My suggestion is this: write a demand letter to your friend AND HER BOYFRIEND, asking them for reimbursement for your medical costs and medications. Inform them kindly in this letter that if they refuse, you will be forced to proceed with legal actions - in which you will sue for not only your medical bills, but for pain and suffering as well.
If that doesnt light a fire under their posteriors, then file a small claims action against them.
If You Go To A Great Law School(Top 10 In The Country),What Are The Chances You Will Get Into A Big Law Firm?
If You Attend One Of The Best Law Schools In The Country(Harvard,Stanford Columbia,Etc.)Is It A Good Chance You Would Get A Job At A Top Law Firm?
Take a look at lawschooltransparency.com. That'll give you a good idea about the school's job placement.
The odds aren't bad right now. Anywhere from 30-60% get into biglaw at most top schools. The better ones place more, of course. If you go to Stanford or Yale, the numbers will skew lower because many of them go into prestigious clerkships or academia. They're still great for biglaw, though, and they tend to get a very large number of interviews at OCI (on-campus interviews - a law school's internal recruiting process).
As I said in an answer to your previous question, you probably aren't going HYSC (Harvard, Yale, Stanford or Columbia) with your numbers unless you're URM (African American, Mexican American, Native American, Puerto Rican ancestry), attended one of a few select prestigious undergraduate universities or just have something crazy extraordinary, but you could get into NYU or UPenn. Those feed really well into the NYC legal market, which is doing fairly well. The job offers are nowhere near what they were before the crash, but better than Chicago, LA, and the secondary markets. If you can do median or better at NYU and you don't disqualify yourself at OCI by being a terrible interview, you will probably get some biglaw offer assuming you target New York. The going entry-level pay is around $160,000/year, although some pay more and some pay less. In NYC, that's not much. Your money goes a lot further in Chicago, parts of California, and secondary markets, of course.
