Finding An Experienced Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will notice that there are numerous lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise they specialize in your form of case. This may make the procedure of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below it will be easy to define your search to the correct one out of almost no time. The first step is to generate a set of the lawyers that happen to be listed in the area specializing in your situation. While you are making this list you should only include those that you may have a great vibe about according to their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down by using a while evaluating their site. There you must be able to find the amount of years they have been practicing and some general specifics of their success rates. At this time your list must have shrunken further to individuals which you felt had professional websites plus an appropriate quantity of experience. You need to then take time to search for independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure to read the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The information within the reviews gives you a concept of the way that they interact with their clients and how much time they invest into each case they are focusing on. Finally, you will need to meet with no less than the last three lawyers which may have the credentials you are searching for. This will give you the time to truly evaluate how interested these are in representing you and the case. It can be vital that you follow every one of these steps to ensure that you hire a company which has the right level of experience to get you the best possible outcome.

Which Career Is Better: Lawyer / Medical Specialist / Journalist?
Which Career Is Better: Lawyer / Medical Specialist / Journalist?
Please Consider The Salary, Outlook On Future, Years Of Schooling, The Level Of Stress, Un/Employment Rates. I Need Good Answers.
I Am Interested In All These Areas.
By The Way, The Medical Areas I'M Thinking Of Are Opthalmology Or Neurology.
Well as cliched as it may seem, you should focus on doing what you love or enjoy first when considering these three jobs, rather then the criteria you mentioned.
That being said here are my opinions:
lawyer - high pay tends to equal high stress. The long term employment outlook is good, but it seems to be taking longer and longer to pay off those loans for law school. Of course if you are the number one student in a top tier school, then you should be fine.
medical specialist - not sure here, so I'll skip it.
journalist - this one is tough. Thanks to the internet, this field is going through some massive changes. The formerly typical type of journalism jobs, print, is disappearing. Yet the appetite for news, clips, etc. delivered through electronic news sources is growing. I'd look for a program that taught you journalism skills but specialized in new media means for getting your message to the people.
Can Law Enforcement Officers Give Legal Advice To Suspects?
If Not Can They Get In Legal Trouble? I Heard They Can'T Give Legal Advice.
Only licensed attorneys can give legal advice. Police are not usually lawyers, therefore they can't give legal advice. Also, it is the role of the police officer to investigate the crime and gather evidence that is turned over to the state's attorney to determine if charges will be brought. It would be a conflict of interest for the police officer to give any kind of legal advice in those circumstances.
Information On A Navy Jag Officer/Lawyer?
My Boyfriend Wants To Go Into The Navy To Become A Lawyer, I Can'T Find Any Information On It...
What Would The Daily Schedule Be Like? When We'Re Married, Will I See Him Every Day? Will I Sleep Next To Him Every Night? What Is The Traveling Like? Please Help.
If he's already a lawyer, see the first link below. If he is not a lawyer now, he will have to enter the Navy as an officer (which requires a Bachelor's degree) and then serve a minimum of two years and apply and qualify before the Navy will send him to law school (Legal Education Program - second link below). During that time the Navy WILL send him to sea and he will be gone about 50% of nights during his first two or three years; normally that will be one in four nights when his ship is in homeport and six months at at a time when he is deployed. Then while he's in law school you'll see him every day and night, but once he's done, as a JAG Officer he will deploy again, normally two six month deployments in a two to three year sea tour, followed by a three year shore tour. Shore tours could be in the U.S. but could also be overseas--but as long as you're married, odds are you'll go with him. Day to day routine on shore duty is much like any other lawyer, with a higher likelihood of occasional travel. BTW, don't draw ANY conclusions from the TV series JAG because it has no relationship to real-life JAG officers. He will make less money and work harder than 90% of his law school classmates, but you may find that he loves the job and he may even stick around for a career. A Navy career is neither good nor bad, it's just different; like anything there are both good and bad aspects to it. I believe--as my career JAG friends do--that the good far outweighs the bad.
Need Help With Child Custody Case.?
My Husbands Ex Recently Filed For Primary Custody In March. She Waited A Year After They Broke It Off And He Moved Out. She Stated She Wanted Something In Writing About Visitation And Said She Didn'T Want Money. We Went To Mediation, She Refused To Work With Anything, Then Dismissed The Case. Our Attorney Advised Us He'D Never Seen This Tactic But We Refiled Anyway. Then She Filed A Sexual Abuse Charge Against Him A Month And A Half Ago. It Was Unfounded 3 Weeks Ago But She Still Refuses To Let Him See His Daughters. There Was An Abuse Case Filed Against Her Boyfriend In Which Was Also Unfounded. The Problem With That Is, We Have Proof That He Abuses Her. We Have Pictures, The 4 Yr Old Being Recorded Advising Of The Abuse, And We Have Affidavits From Witnesses Who Have Been In The House And Seen What Goes On. Dhs Refused To See That Proof And Dismissed It Just Because The 4 Yr Old Told Them, While Being Coached, That She Was Happy And Not Getting Hit. It Has Been 5 Weeks Since He Has Seen His Daughters And This Weekend Will Make 6. She Claims She Is Waiting On A Phone Call But Refuses To Tell Us What About Or Why. I Have Assumed It Was A Call From The Dhs Worker So I Called Her And Left Her Messages To Please Call My Husband'S Ex So That He Can See His Girls. Our Attorney Sent Her Attorney A Letter Today Advising Her Of The Issue. What Can He Do? There'S Is Nothing In Writing Yet. She Hates My Guts Only Because I Am With Him. I Treat My Step Daughters Better Then Their Mother Does. My Husband Is A Stay At Home Dad But She Would Never Take Advantage Of That. She Would Rather Have Them Stay With A Sitter While She Goes Out To Party Then Let Their Father Spend Anymore Time With Them Then She Feels He Should Be Allowed. She Even Stated To Him That She Thinks 4 Days A Month Is Fair. I Am So Frustrated With Her.
You don't need help with a custody case, you need a divorce.
This is not your custody case, these are not your children and never will be but you'll pay for it in more ways than one.
You're willfully holding a poisonous snake and you're mad at the snake.
Drop it and run for your life.
Anybody Know A Good Adoption Lawyer?
I Need An Adoption Lawyer In The Champaign Il Area, But I'D Go As Far As Chicago. My 8 Year Old Sons Father Wants To Give Up His Rights And My Husband Who Raised Him Since He Was 4 Wants To Adopt Him, But I Can'T Find Anyone To Take The Case For Under $1,800. We Can'T Afford That, Does Anyone Know Of A Lawyer Who Might Do It For Less?
Since the adoption is uncontested by your son's father, you may only need a paralegal to prepare the documents. You may not need an attorney.
Hey All. I Snuck Outside Last Night And Got Busted By My Dog. As Expected I Was To Be Punished But My Dad Took His Belt Off And Said For Me To Lean Over His Lap And I Refused. Is Getting Whipped With A Belt Considered Child Abuse? I Have Never Been Whipped With A Belt And It Hurt Like Really Really Bad. As Bad As To The Point I Shed A Few Tears.
Oh, sweetie, I am so sorry! That's awful. To answer your question, it depends what state you're in. Some states allow parents to use objects to discipline a child, and others don't. The severity of the punishment and any physical marks like bruising, laceration, etc. is likely also to be taken into account.
If this happens all the time and you're afraid to be at home, you should contact your state department of social services (usually called Department of Children and Families, DCF or Department of Children and Family Services, DCFS. )
If it's a one-time fluke and you're just curious about what it's classified as, I'd be careful about who you tell. Most states say that teachers, social workers, and even school counselors are mandated reporters, meaning that they have to report what you've told them, document it, contact DCF, and implement an investigation. That could cause internal family friction and some unintended consequences.
Most states have rules protecting confidential statements between a child and his/her attorney, so if you contacted a lawyer about your inquiry it is more likely that he/she not only wouldn't have to report it, but would be under an ethical obligation to not report it (but each state is different, so check first).
And, last but most important, if you feel you're being abused and/or want DCF to get involved, clearly, you should seek help from an adult--a teacher, social worker, or someone else that you can trust.
