Companies need lawyers as well, no matter whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps not fair business methods.

A large, full service law firm has a lot of legal representatives with unique areas of experience, so depending on your personal legal issue, you can instantly retain the greatest lawyer to satisfy your ongoing need without having to begin your search each time you need legal assistance.It is ideal to locate a legal representative you can have confidence in. You need one with a decent track record, who issincere, effective, and wins cases. You really want to have confidence that they will defend you accurately and bill you fairly for their services.

What Is The Best Type Of Lawyer To Be?
I'Am Intrested Into Going Into Law And I Would Like To Know Which Is The Best Type Of Lawyer To Be. I Would Not Like To Be A Criminal Defense Lawyer As I Would Just Be So Ashamed With Myself For Lieing To Help A Bad Person.
None. There are very few job opportunities in the vocational field of Law.
The reality is the economy, which has dramatically changed. Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. 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 - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! And, 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.....Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers.

**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
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.
There are MANY issues of working in the vocational field of Law. My answer is an attempt to give you a realistic way of looking at this career, and I have told you things that most will not tell you about the profession - at first. Be careful, do your research, and have your eyes open wide.

How Does Spousal Support And Divorce Work?
My Wife And I Agreeded On Getting A Non Contested Divorce. Recently I Found Out That I Have A Court Date For Spousal Support. Does That Effect The Uncontested Divorce? And How Can That Be Rewarded If We Getting Divorced?
Unless your super wealthy, typically spousal support is not awarded. And the very few women or men who are awarded spousal support receive a very limited amount, it is very short lived, meaning it is temporary, also most people who get spousal support are people who are not educated and are unemployed. So if your future ex wife is employed, and wins, it will be a very small amount. For instance a friend of mine who lives in San Francisco actually was awarded spousal support, her hubby made a decent living, she however ran a child care center and due to the poor economy in California most of her customers had dropped from 20 children down to 2, at any rate, the judge ruled in her favor and granted her a whole $37.00 per week, which will be stopped if she should remarry, or the limited time has passed, which is two years. This was a slap in the face for her, but it is how our courts work, many people are under the assumption that spousal support is a right, and that it is similar to child support, it is not, they are wrong. Any divorce that is uncontested cannot be rewarded any financial assistance or be granted any assets, it must be finalized first. Good Luck, and don't worry to much about spousal support.
Why Are There So Many Personal Injury Lawyer Advertisements In The State Of Flroida?
Seriously, There Is Probably 100X More In Florida Than Any Other State I'Ve Ever Visited. I Am Guessing That The State Is Either Plaintiff Friendly Or The Laws Are More Lax Concerning Attorney Advertisements. Thanks.
Only some states allow personal injury lawyers to advertise, Florida is one of those. 100x is a gross exaggeration. It's all about competition. The more lawyers who advertise, the more NEED to advertise to get the business.
People don't realize that the number of times you see a lawyer's name on TV has nothing to do with his/her competence, and in fact it can be argued that GOOD lawyers don't need to use TV advertising.
How To Find Attorney For Free Advice On Car Repair.?
I Asked For Copies Of Repairs From My Auto Dealer. Found 2 Identical Copies With Different Labor Cost And Different Pick Up Times. Both In My Name, Only I Paid The Higher Price. I Asked Manager About It And Cannot Get An Answer. What Is Wrong With Vehicle Now, Relates To The Same Repair. They Offered To Repair For Free But I Want Answers To 2 Identical Copies. Where Do I Go?
I doubt they'l give you or your atty an answer because they'r prob scamming.
I'd call the state atty general's office dept of consumer complaints.
Hopefully, that will get the dealer investigated & maybe busted.
There's also probably consumer protection depts on the county & state level, & the state agency that regulates car dealers.
The atty's you call will prob ask you want you hope to accomplish. The dealer offered you free repair, IF you trust them. Maybe now they'r scared straight w/ you and wont mess.
Maybe you want the lawyers to explain the likely consequences to the dealer if you expose this.
I'd try telling this dealer no, you want them to reimburse you for repairs done at the name-brand dealer, ie, Ford car: Ford dealer. Then they can have one copy of their invoice back.
You can call lawyers in your area who practice consumer law and ask for advice on the phone. I've won some small claims cases as a non lawyer, and I always call them as part of my research. Most are very helpful. They'r also looking at you as a potential client.

Would Someone Help Me With Some Legal Advice?
Ok, So My Ex And I Had A Big Fight Over Text, Long Story Short, I Screwed Up And Now She'S Threatening To Charge Me With Telecommunications Harassment. She Hasn'T Done It, But She'S Said That If I Say Anything About Her To People She Will.Charge Me, She'S Blackmailing Me With A Lawsuit To Keep Me From Saying Anything About Her. I Understand The Laws On Slander And That I Have To Proove That What I Said Is True If She Goes For A Slander Case, We'Re Both Under-Age And Unfortunately We Sent Pics To Eachother... But The Pictures Prove My Case True...If Her Texting Records Got Subpoena'D Would She And I Get Charged With The Whole Child Pornography Crap? And Also, Could I Charge Her With Blackmail For What She'S Doing Using The Suit As Leverage For Me To Keep My Mouth Shut, And If So Would It Render Her Harassment Charge Null? Also What Is The Limit Of Time She Can Charge Me With The Harassment? I Mean How Long Does She Have After The Harassment Occured To Charge Me?
"...if her texting records got subpoena'd would she and i get charged with the whole child pornography crap?" - YES since she is a minor.
She's not blackmailing you, she's being a teenage girl. Good rule of thumb is to not talk about other people in general.
She has whatever time the statute of limitations is, probably a couple of years. No, one charge doesn't make the other null. That said, a text argument does not constitute harassment.
Just shut up and leave her alone. What good could possibly come of you talking about her even if she DIDN'T have this text stuff? None. Find a girl who is not psycho.
Am I Entitled To Legal Aid?
I Have Been Subject To A Child Maintenance Consent Order For The Last Twelve Months And I Am Now Able To Apply To Have It Reduced As It Is Way Too Much Especially Since I Am Currently Unemployed. I Have Been Told I May Be Entitled To Legal Aid With My Case. Does Anyone Know If This Is True?
Your counties court house should have a legal aid office, which usually has people there to help you with the forms. If you are very low income you can have the filing fees waived, the clerk will have those forms.
