This can make the entire process of finding one with a great deal of experience a bit of a challenge. 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. You should then take time to check out independent reviews of each attorney. Make sure you browse the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. 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.

Going To Give My Deposition For A Slip And Fall Case....Any Help, Or Hints??
Speak with your lawyer, not a bunch of strangers! Your lawyer is being paid to represent you (that includes being paid on contingency), so he should earn his money. Your lawyer should have already made arrangements for a deposition preparation session to prepare you for the deposition. In a simple slip and fall case, deposition preparation can take as little as a couple of hours.
More importantly, because we are not your lawyers, anything we tell you here would be discoverable at your deposition! One of the first questions you will be asked after you are sworn in is "what did you do to prepare for your deposition?" and your posting at Yahoo answers should be part of any truthful response.

There Officer Gave Me Pink Receipt For Dui Suspended Licence Which Says I Can Apply For My Dmv Hearing In 10 Days. Can Somebody Tell Me Are There Any Criminal Charges Against Me. I Have Hired A Lawyer Who Says That He Has Filed For My Dmv Hearing But He Did Not Give Me Any Date(Saying It Will Probably Happen In One Month).Also How Can I Know About My Court Hearing Date & My Police Report. My Lawyer Seems To Be Very Secretive Saying I Dont Have To Worry About It & It Will Take About 6 Months.
You can call the county clerk(criminal office) about any court dates.
Yes criminal charges were filed against you. That DMV hearing is probably about you obtaining some kind of restricted license until your case is finalized.
They probably ran a blood test and determined your alcohol level while you were in the hospital. Find out what it was and whether you were over the limit. If you were over the limit the only argument you can make is that the machine/labs were faulty.
Self Defence (Lawyers/Law Students Only)?
If Someone Is Attacking A Friend Of Yours, You Jump In And Hit The Person To Stop Them From Inflicting Further Damage, Would This Be A Valid Defence Of Self Defence Should You Be Sued By The Party You Hit - Ie. Seeking Damages.
Even in circumstances where the accused has a defence of self defence to a criminal charge, he may still be held liable in the tort of negligence in respect of the same act (Revill v Newbery -  2 WLR 239).
Thus, where an occupier of premises comes across a burglar on his land he cannot act with total disregard to the burglar's safety, any more than one could attack an attacker, and the maxim ex turpi causa non oritur actio (no action will arise from a bad cause) cannot be invoked to provide the occupier or good samaritan with what would amount to a complete defence to the burglars/attackers claim for damages. However, even though such a complete defence may not be available, the courts are likely to reduce the amount of the claimant's award on the ground of contributory negligence. Trespass against the person is another possibility.
The law in the UK and the US are quite similar.
U.S. laws governing self-protection derive from the ancient English common law that held that a medieval Briton was obliged to retreat until his back was literally to a wall or a ditch before he was justified in fighting off an assailant. This so-called "retreat law" has been substantially modified in American courts, which have generally ruled that though a person must attempt to avoid trouble, he is not legally bound to flee if such action would increase his peril. Only Texas law ignores retreat altogether and permits an attacked person to stand and fight it out under any circumstances.
In the US and UK, once the fighting has begun, the law becomes a matter of interpretation. An attacked person is legally permitted to exert only as much force as is necessary to repel the aggressor. The word 'self' in self-defence is rather misleading because any person has a common law right (some might say an obligation) to prevent crime, whether that be to stop an assault, or otherwise.

Getting A Divorce & Planning To Move With My 5 Year Old Son To Europe, My Ex Will Not Agree, Any Legal Advice?
you are in a joint custody situation.
if you move with out hubby's legal consent, and take your child, you will be charged and convicted of kidnapping, and you will lose all parental custody and right to visitation. the usa and canada work very closely with interpol on abduction cases, and more are caught than vanish. if you do this and are caught, you will probably never see your child again as you will be charged and a no contact order put in place. you choose.
if you leave without your son, you will possibly still be able to have joint custody, but your child will remain with your ex and he will become at least the residential primary care giver and custodian. you would have to have a new visitation or access chedule set up in the courts based on your new circumstances, which would allow your child to visit you at specified times, travel costs being your responsibility.
the bottom line is the child has the right to stay in the area he was born in and grew up in, and holds citizenship in, as long as one of the primary care givers with joint custody lives there.
there are no other choices in your situation, unless your ex is proven guilty of abuse and neglect, and you are granted sole custody.
if you leave, you will have to reliquish custodial care of your child to your ex, and you will just have to accept the role of being the long distant parent, which is your choice you made be leaving the jurisdiction.
What Are Her Chances In Family Court?
Right Now We Have An Agreement That Has Been In Place For 3 Years. I Get Thursday Afternoon Through Sunday Morning, She Gets Sunday Morning Through Thursday Afternoon. It Was 12 Noon On Sunday But Agreed It Should Be 9 Am On Sunday Once He Started School, Which Just Began This Year.
She Wants To Change Agreement To Her Having Him Every Week And Every Other Weekend. Cutting Me Down From Every Week Nearly 50 Percent Of The Time To Only Every Other Weekend.
This Is Her Reasoning:
1) She Has No Job And Is A Stay At Home Mom So Now She Feels As If She Should Be First Choice When It Comes To Where Our Child Should Be
2) He Should Be In One House For School (Although When We First Made The Agreement, The Change On Sunday Was Suppose To Compensate For That. Plus Why Cant That House Be My House Then?)
3) She Wants Weekends With Our Son As Well, Although Sunday Is A Weekend Day If Im Not Mistaken Right? I Have Him Saturday And Return Him Sunday. We Each Get A Day!
There Was No Significant Changes Besides The Fact That She Quit Her Job. Noone Of Us Are Going To Jail, I Still Have A Job. The Times I Have Him I Am Still There For Him And Not Off Working Or In The Bars Or Anything.
I Love My Son So Very Much And I Cant Stand The Thought Of Only Seeing Him 4 Days A Month. Please Tell Me That She Wont Get Everything She Wants?
How is she paying for stuff if she quit her job? And are your houses in different school districts? This agreement that you have right now, is it court ordered or something you two agreed on by yourselves? If it's not court ordered, then you will have to go to court and try to get shared custody of your son. My brothers fiance has a son from a previous marriage and they went to court and the judge set it up to they each get the child one week at a time and then when he starts school, they will have to come back to discuss what school the child will go to because they live in two different school districts. Good luck and I hope you get to see your child more than 4 days a month.
