However, if you follow the following it will be possible to define your research to the correct one in almost no time. The initial step is to produce a listing of the lawyers that are listed in your neighborhood focusing on your circumstances. While you are causeing this to be list you should only include those you have an effective vibe about based upon their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you will be able to find just how many years they are practicing and several general details about their success rates. At this time your list should have shrunken further to the people that you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate level of experience.

The details inside the reviews gives you a concept of how they connect with their clientele and the length of time they invest into each case they are focusing on. Finally, you will need to talk with at the very least the final three lawyers which may have the credentials you would like. This will provide you with some time to really evaluate how interested they are in representing you and your case. It is actually crucial for you to follow every one of these steps to actually find a person which includes the correct degree of experience to get you the very best outcome.

Who Are The Best Wrongful Death Attorneys In Michigan?
My Son Was Killed At Work. We Have Workmans Comp Laws In Michigan. I Need An Attorney That Is Willing To Go The Extra Mile.
I'm not from Michigan, but my advice is that you look up attorneys on the internet in your state. My father is the victim of hospital malpractice that resulted in his death. It took forever to find a lawyer and calling the Florida Bar referral line was no help. I got crazy one night and just got on the computer and went on as many lawyer websites as I could find here in FL, shared my Dad's story with them via their websites, and was finally contacted by an excellent attorney. Just understand that you may have lawyers that review your son's case and turn you down. Don't worry about it, just keep looking. We were turned down by an attorney that we called first because he's always on tv commercials. It's a good thing because now we have a great lawyer and the hospital knows that they've got a problem and have said that they want to settle the case outside of the courtroom. I wish you luck and am sorry for your loss.
Questions About Possible Criminal Charges?
Ok So I Was At This Party About An Hour And A Half Ago, Maybe Drank A Lil Too Much (15 Beers) I'M 18 Btw. And I Get In An Argument With This Other Dude Who'S Like 17(Didn'T Know He Was That Young) So I Haul Off And Hit Him, He Falls Gets Back Up Staggers To Me And Swings At Me, Before The Punch Lands I Throw Him Against Some Truck, Hop On Top Of Him And Beat The Living **** Out Of Him. Then He Says He'S Calling The Cops For It. Now If I Get Arrested I'Ll Get Charged With Dui(I Drove Home) Under Age Consumption, Assult, Child Abuse (He'S 17) But He'S Drunk Too So If He Calls The Cops He Should Get In Trouble Too So Idk If He Did Or Not. Do U Guys Think I'M Safe?
You deserve to be charged with assault and battery. I doubt you can get charged with DUI -- you would have had to have been stopped by the police while you were actually behind the wheel. Same with the alcohol consumption -- the cops would have had to witness you drinking and then have checked your I.D. Even if he's technically not an adult, the guy you beat up isn't a child, so it probably won't be "child abuse", but assault. Not only that, but if he required medical attention, he (or his parents) can hold you responsible for the bills. Was it worth it?
Lawyers -- Would You Recommend The Profession To Others?
Absolutely not. Most lawyers if they had a choice to do it over again, wouldn't go back to law school. Law school is the wrong choice for about 90 percent of the people who enroll there.
It's one of the most cutthroat, unhappy, unhealthy and unethical professions. It's a professional model -both in practice and in training - that has failed to adapt to changing times.
The real problem is the oversupply of lawyers. When you have 40,000 graduates each year from law school, you can't expect them all to find work in their field. It doesn't help that law schools tout inflated salary and employment statistics. That's why tens of thousands of students enroll each year expecting at least a comfortable middle income bracket salary, and face a rude awakening when they graduate and compete with 100 others for jobs that start at $35k. And let's not forget the $100,000 debt that besets so many of them.
The profession needs reform, but the law schools, the ABA, and the large law firms are unwilling as a whole to own up to it.

Would You Get A Lawyer If You Get Hurt Seriously On The Job?
My Husband Completely Shattered His Ankle. Now He Needs Pins And Plates In His Leg. I Know Each State Varies On Laws And Regulations. What Would You Do? And Besides That The Company Has Laid Off Most Of Their Nurse Case Managers And Now He Just Had A Case Manager. Is This Normal For A Serious Type Of Injury? He Has To Have An Ankle Replacement. We Live In The State Of Arizona.
I would go to a legal directory and contact maybe a dozen lawyers. Find some that offer free consultations and use the free consultation from each lawyer to get more information. This way you can get the opinion of multiple attorneys for free, and by the time you finish with the 3rd or 4th lawyer you will have a great idea of your options and what you should do. I know employers treat this kind of situation carefully but almost always try to screw you (in my opinion).

Wisconsin Family Court Question Primary Placement?
I Could Give A Lot Of Detail Here But In An Effort To Keep It Simple I Will Just Talk About The Basics. My Ex And I Divorced In 2005, At That Time I Had Agreed For My Son To Live With Her Because I Believed It Would Be Better For Him To Remain With His Half Brother. (She Had A Child From Previous Relations) She Married The Guy She Was Cheating With Barely 6 Mos After Our Divorce. In Short The Guy Is A Terrible Provider. My Son Moved About 5 Times And Probably Went To 5 Different Schools During The Time He Was With Her. This Was Due To Her Dumb *** Husband Not Being Able To Hold A Job And Pay The Bills. In October Of 2009 He Left The State To &Quot;Look Into A Job&Quot; He Took Off To Arizona With Her Having Little Knowledge Of It. She Was Then Evicted From There Rented Property For Rent Not Paid. She Was Basically Homeless With 4 Kids. (She Had 2 More With Him). She Basically Ended Up Staying With Friends For Nearly 6 Mos. To Her Credit She Agreed To A Stipulated Change Of Placement, Changing Primary Placement To Me. (For My Son) In About February Of 2010 She Went To Live In Arizona. For Some Time They Literally Were Living In A Camper. Her Husband Went Through Many Jobs Until In The Summer Of 2011 They Put What They Could In There Car Leaving Everything Else Behind Including A Couple Dogs, And Left In The Middle Of The Night For Wisconsin. Supposedly He Could Not Find Work In Az. Once Back In Wisconsin He Never Found Work Either. In Short They Spent 3 Mos Shacking Up With Friends Before Once Again They Took Off Back To Arizona Because He Supposedly Had A Job Offer. (Just Some Info On The Jack***, He Wont Do Anything That Doesn'T Involve Driving.) Turns Out He Ended Up Driving A Taxi When They Got Back. In Any Case To My Knowledge They Are Now Living In A 2 Bedroom Trailer Home (2 Adults And 3 Kids). Now She Seems To Be Telling My Son She Wants To Get Him Down There Over The Summer. Right Before They Decided To Come Back In 2011 I Was Almost Going To Make Arrangements But It Is Very Obvious To Me There Is No Stability There. Somehow Or Another They Are Now Running Some Sort Of Taxi Service. Knowing Her Husband He Is Probably Doing It Illegally. Like I Said Before He Wont Do Anything That Doesn'T Involve Driving. Id Would Almost Bet That They Will Crash And Burn Before Too Long.
Getting To The Point Here, When We Divorced We Never Had An Actual Visitation Agreement Or Order. It Was Simply Reasonable Time And Notice. That Always Worked Fine When She Was In Wisconsin But 2000 Miles Away Doesn'T Make That So Workable. When We Signed The Stipulated Change Of Placement No Visitation Agreement Was Put Into Place. I Would Also Ad That She Has Paid Me No Child Support Since He Came To Live With Me. The Reason Why Is I Did Not Ask For It, She Was Basically Homeless At The Time And Had 3 Other Kids To Care For. I Am A Person Who Believed Just Cause Something Is Legal To Do Doesnt Make It Morally Corect. To This Day However She Has Not Even Made An Offer To Pay Support. In Fact She Sent My Son A Birthday Card This Year With $20.00 And It Was The Only Thing He Has Ever Really Gotten From Her.
Bottome Line Here Is I Dont Feel It Is A Safe Enviroment For My Son To Be In Down There. I Have Also Had Him In Counseling Where He Had Told The Counselor About Her Husband Being Physically Abusive To Him. Another Reason I Dont Want Him There. I Am Also Quite Sure That If She Got Him There That In August When He Would Have To Come Back That She Would Claim To Not Have The Money To Send Him Back And Try To Put Him In School Down There.
I Know Ive Gave A Lot Of Info Here But Ultimately My Question Is Do Have A Legal Standing O Prevent Him From Going There? Again We Do No Have A Visitation Order So I Would Assume There Is Nothing She Could Try And Inforce. I Would Also Assume She Would Have To File In Wisconsin Court To Get A Visitation Order And Then Get It Inforced. This Is A Rough Situation For Me, I Wan My Son To Be In Contact With His Mother But I Feel She Should Come Up To See Him Given The Situation. Even With That I Am A Little Worried That If She Came Up That She Wouldnt Try To Take Off With Him. I Would Assume Though That Would Be Kidnapping Under Law Because I Have Primary Placement. At The Least It Would Be Interfering With A Placement Order.
I Know This Is Long But If Anyone Could Give Me Some Factual Information I Would Greatly Apreciate It. If Anyone Has Further Questions, Ill Do My Best To Answer Them.
Thanks In Advance.
he court that has jurisdiction is Wisconsin because that is where the child resides. She should have contacted you about visitation first (your agreement is reasonable time and reasonable notice) instead of going to your son and making an assumption that it was okay for him to spend the summer in Arizona. That put your son in a situation that he should have never been put in and the courts won't like that. I assume that you've never disagreed on visitation before which is really amazing so this is new ground for you.
You have every right to talk to her and negotiate. She has no order in place stating that she can just pick up the kid and take him to another state. She made the choice to move away from him.
I would recommend that you talk to her and negotiate with her first if at all possible, explain to her your concerns and tell her you would be willing to allow her to see your son but she needs to come to Wisconsin. (She has friends she can stay with). I would also involve the boy's counselor if he is still seeing a therapist to get her professional opinion on what is in the best interest of the child.
If she just decides to take the child and keep him in Arizona I don't believe it would be considered kidnapping since it is not clear who has legal custody of the child. If you had sole custody, yes, but it sounds like you two just agreed the boy would live with you. I assume that you then have joint custody so she has a legal right to make decisions on his behalf too.
If I were in your position, after I spoke to my ex and tried to resolve it between us, I would initiate a modification of your custody agreement to include a visitation plan based on a substantial change in circumstances such as being in your primary custody and her move so far away. Get something in writing. You can bring up the issue of child support if you want. You can even threaten her that this will be the next step if she doesn't agree to your terms (but I wouldn't recommend it).
You have a strong case for keeping the boy in Wisconsin. Courts don't like to move kids around. You can clearly give him more stability. She should have visitation but it should be in writing so you can take her to court if the boy is abused or if she refuses to return him.
