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.

Can A High School Student Get A Part-Time Job At A Law Office ?
This Summer I Want To Get A Part Time Job In A Law Office; I Know You Need Schooling To Become A Lawyer, But Are There Any Other Jobs In A Law Office That A High School Student Is Eligible For? I'M Also Looking For An Internship At A Law Office, Are There Any Opportunities For Me To Serve As An Intern In A Law Office?

If you have a "mommy" or a "daddy" or other relative that is already employed at a law office, then you may have a chance at getting in.

You need basic schooling to work at a law office even if it is simply working as a Receptionist - there are basic things that legal professionals need to know so their employer doesn't get into trouble. For example, you cannot give advice without a license as an attorney or you can get prosecuted for "Unauthorized Practice of Law". There are other basic rules that all legal professionals need to know before they work in a legal environment.

Without an important contact, and/or without some basic training as to working in a legal environment, then -no- you probably won't be offered any opportunities.

My suggestion is to try to get into any type of an office environment for now as a high-school student.

I hope you are not entertaining the thought of law school in your future.

Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.

The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed DRAMATICALLY! 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 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, if becoming an attorney is your "true" ultimate goal.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

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.

Regarding being a Paralegal: 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.

>>>>>I cannot warn you about 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!

Good luck.

Will The Family Law Courts Look At This?
The Mother Of My Child Lives With Her Parents And Is Not Allowed To Make Any Decisions About Our Child. Her Mother Is In Charge Of Everything Because Her Mother Says She Can'T Make The Right Decisions. Her Mother Has Already Said That Even After Court I Am Not Going To See Our Child. I Told My Ex Then She With Be The One Being Charged With Contempt Of Court And Not Her Mother. She Says She Knows But There Is Nothing She Can Do About It. Will The Courts Take Into Consideration That My Ex'S Own Mother Says She Can'T Make Good Decisions?

I'm somewhat confused about whose mother we're talking about sometimes. The child's mother or the child's mother mother?

Is it the child's mother mother that says you won't see the child and also say's that the child's mother is not capable of making decisions?

Anyways, she will have to be willing to testify. Are you sure you want to call a witness who is not on your side? They could easily turn this around and just say that your ex has the responsible support of her family to provide a stable home environment.

And this sounds very expensive when you start calling witnesses and dragging things out. I'm not sure just this bit of testimony alone would be worth bringing your ex's mother into this. It is far more important to focus on your ex and yourself.

Courts of course favor the parent that is more open to visitation with the other parent. Its not a good thing if the child is in the custody of a household that restricts this. Just write it down in a diary you should be keeping regarding everything about the child and your ex.

What'S A Civil Rights Lawyer?

A lawyer who represents plaintiffs on matters involving Constitutional rights and various forms of discrimination.

Examples of cases: a public high school in Alabama disallowing an LGBT student organization to be formed; a public high school in New York disallowing a Christian student organization to hold a prayer meeting on school grounds before the school day begins; an employer firing an employee because they are gay; an employer refusing to hire an applicant because she worked on a Republican candidate's campaign; a publicly-traded company has only men in managerial positions and a qualified female employee has been "overlooked" for promotion to manager.

What Does An Injury Lawyer Do?
Thanks In Advance

Injury lawyers provide legal representation to people who may have been injured due to the mistake of another. Injury lawyers are very knowledgeable in tort law.

Question For Lawyer/ Law Enforcement?
Is It Difficult To Transition From Law Enforcement To Law If One Already Has An Economics Degree? I'M Aware That One Would Need To Get Into A Graduate Program At A College To Begin Working In Law, But Would The Time Spent Working In Law Enforcement Help Getting Into A Graduate Program And Finding A Law-Related Job Afterward?

Depends what you want to do. To be a lawyer, you need to go to law school. I'm a retired cop, degree in sociology, transitioned into a paralegal position with no trouble. Of course, it does not pay much....

Our inquisitive nature and gut instincts really help.

good luck!
