I Have A Felony That Is 7 Yrs.Old And I Want To Apply For Postal And Civil Service Jobs Can I ?
There Is A Civil Service Job Opening In My Area And I Am Signed Up To Take The Test But I Have This Old Felony Theft Conviction And I Am Not Sure If I Even Qualify To Get The Job Or If I Should Waste The Time Of The Employer Or Me?
A felony conviction will automatically get you fired if you are working for the state or the federal government and are arrested and convicted. I would say, No they are not going to hire you with the conviction.
Contact the Criminal Justice Department, they will ask for $35 $40 dollars and do a "Live Scan" on you. This will give you a record of the Felony and any other charges, misdemeanors you might have on your record. They all can be expunged.
Then you will have to go to the Court where Convicted and get the paper work you need to file with the court and the numbers you need for those papers. Conviction number etc. Some code number. Date of conviction etc. Everything on those papers has to be filled out right. IT IS NOT HARD and they will help you. When you file the papers it is another $60. It could be different where you are. You don't need an Attorney to do this. I think there is a number off the Live Scan paper you might need, I'm not sure. Just keep the papers all together.
This will not remove it from your record but it will allow you to plead not guilty on the felony you were convicted of. You don't have to go back into court for it. They usually do it without you present. When you are asked by an employer about it you have to admit to the felony but then you can say it was dismissed. It looks better and allows Federal, State and County Employment to consider you for hire.
I'm not liking that site very much but it says they can handle any State. The site I used let me down load the paper work I needed to file with the court but I deleted it from my favorites. Sorry. Good luck. Oh, I don't think you should fill out the job application and not tell the truth on it. If they find out they can fire you. Besides you don't want to be refused the job because of your felony conviction. Better to get your record cleaned up.
Does Anyone Know Of A Good Website That Can Direct Me In Family Law Court Rules?
Try Googling your county’s court. In CA. most courts have a website with lots of links and other useful information; they even have an online section where you can look up public records on people.
If you are in CA. try http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp/family/
If not try http://www.expertlaw.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=9
Remember the most important thing; everything we learn about courts and trial usually refers to a criminal case not a civil case. The rules are different. You do not have the same rights, and things are not judged by a jury beyond a reasonable doubt. Just a judge at his/her discretion.
Identify The Steps In The Legal Research Process?
I Need Some Help Here, This Is An Elective, I Just Need Someone To Simply This For Me. Thank You
I never knew there were specific steps, but here goes:
When I was in law school, we had to file legal analyses. We started with the issue and divided it up into relevant questions that needed to be discussed. Then we went to Westlaw and checked out the keynotes for cases that addressed those very points. After that we went to Shepherd's to look up those cases, and see how the courts had treated them (upheld, cited, overturned, etc.) If anything was noted as a specific treatment, I'd look up that case and see if it pertained to my issue. If it did, I'd start the process all over until I had the most on-point cases that were the most up-to-date.
After I had my cases, I'd write a discussion of the cases, and write a conclusion as to what the court would do based on these cases.
How Many Victories In A Year Is Considered Very Good For A Criminal Defense Attorney?
In A Medium Sized City Of About 500,000 People. I Know A Lot Of It Has To Do With How Many Cases Are Tried To Begin With, But I'M Just Looking For A Good Ball-Park Figure. Preferably, Anyone With Experience With Attorneys Or Court Should Answer
This is not the right way to measure the situation.
The biggest factors in whether a case will be won or lost are all outside the attorney's control. It is only in a very small portion of cases where the quality of the attorney will have any impact on the likelihood of a conviction. Some attorneys will specialize in cases that are easier to defend (e.g., white collar crime, drug possession cases where suppression of evidence may be a common issue, etc.) whereas other attorneys may specialize in cases that are much harder to defend (e.g., major felony trials where the prosecution and police have gone to great lengths to conduct a proper investigation and gather evidence).
As you mention, it also will depend on the number of cases tried by the attorney. If the attorney tries serious felony or murder cases, odds are they may have only had ~5-10 clients in the past year, and odds are that all of them were convicted. On the other hand, an attorney specializing in misdemeanor DUI law may handle well in excess of 50 cases a year, in which case they probably have acquired a one or tmaybe two not guilty verdicts from those cases. Criminal defendants are almost always found guilty, because there are significant protections in place to ensure that a person is guilty (and that it can be proven) before they are even charged.
Most attorneys who try only major crimes will likely see only a handful of not guilty verdicts in their entire careers. More often, cases will be dismissed before trial or terminated at the preliminary hearing stage, prior to the trial being conducted.
What a good attorney CAN do is work with a client to get a good plea bargain, minimize the sentence, etc. etc. etc.
It is difficult for the general public to distinguish among attorneys. Personally, when selecting an attorney, I would start by looking for attorneys who practice ONLY criminal defense law, who have a minimum of 5-10 years of experience, who previously worked for the agency prosecuting you (e.g., the same DA's office, the US Attorney office, etc.), and who did well at a top nationally ranked law school (e.g., Harvard, Yale, Duke, Stanford, Georgetown) or a the best local law school. Of course, this attorney will be much more expensive.
I would also want an attorney who specializes in or has significant experience in cases of my type. i.e., if it is DUI, I would want someone who mainly or exclusively practices DUI law. If it is murder, I would want someone who has tried several murder cases. If it is white collar crime, someone specializing in that. As a practical matter, this is a bit of a "wish list" and you will not find attorneys meeting these criteria in a town of 500K people, and if you are able to find them, their rates will be astronimical.
After getting a short list, I would interview each attorney and make a final decision based on my gut feeling and the rate the attorney charges.
I would also be cautious of any attorney whose rate is significantly below the local average.
Was Barack Obama Really A Constitutional Law Professor?
He Said: &Quot;I Was A Constitutional Law Professor, Which Means Unlike The Current President I Actually Respect The Constitution.&Quot;
Wasn'T He Actually A Senior Lecturer And Not A Law Professor?
You bet you!
His formal title was "senior lecturer," but the University of Chicago Law School says he "served as a professor" and was "regarded as" a professor.
UC Law School statement: The Law School has received many media requests about Barack Obama, especially about his status as "Senior Lecturer." From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. The title of Senior Lecturer is distinct from the title of Lecturer, which signifies adjunct status. Like Obama, each of the Law School's Senior Lecturers have high-demand careers in politics or public service, which prevent full-time teaching. Several times during his 12 years as a professor in the Law School, Obama was invited to join the faculty in a full-time tenure-track position, but he declined.
Missouri State Child Custody Rights?
My Sister Is Dating And Living With A Guy In Missouri Who Has A Daughter With An Ex G/F. My Sister Just Called Me And Said That She Has To Come Home Because He Was Told By The Judge And His Attorney That He Will Lose All Rights To His Daughter Because She Is Living With Him And They Are Not Married. I Asked Him If He Got This In Writing And He Said No. Is There Any Truth To This?? If You Can Please Include A Website So I May Email It To Him. Thanks
You can call that BS with out a web site unless you have a deranged, drug addicted sister, no judge in Missouri or anyplace else would get that involved in a relationship between people involved in a divorce or custody battle. All cases or adjudicated on a case by case basis so the type of Information you are looking for would only be in the judges mind and not controlled by law. Your sister would have to be one of the most incorrigible people in Missouri for a judge to order a separation before a custody order, either the Girl Friend is lying or the boyfriend wants to get rid of your sister.~
