The majority of people today do not think about acquiring a legal professional until they are in desperate need. The legal issue might be personal, like family law, for a breakup or if you are searching for a bankrupcy or trust legal professional. It may be a criminal condition you want to be defended on. Firms want lawyers as well, whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unfounded business strategies. Tax law firms are also very helpful any time dealing with government troubles. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A huge, full service law firm has numerous lawyers with unique areas of experience, so relying on your own legal issue, you can immediately retain the most effective lawyer or attorney to meet your existing need without having to begin your search each time you need legal support.It is most effective to find a legal professional you can rely on. You want one with a very good track record, who istruthful, productive, and wins cases. You want to have assurance that they will stand for you accurately and charge you fairly for their products and services. Oftentimes a word of mouth from a good friend or business affiliate can be handy, however you should continue to keep your options open and review all the firms accessible, because when you need to have legal help, you need it immediately and you want the finest you can afford.

How Do You Find Out How Good Your Lawyer Is? As In, Cases Won And Lost And The Such.
Unless they are a high profile person like Racehorse Hanes, probably can't. When I select new legal representation (and I've had to go through enough to get an honorary law degree) I interview them. Last company I started we interviewed 20 different firms before making a selection. The one we chose pulled out all the stops, held a 2 hour conference call with their key people and took time to explain how each person's background was important to what we wanted to accomplish. Contracts, Federal Trade Commission experience, franchising, on and on and on. I spent 6-figures with them every year but it was necessary for such a complicated business venture. Ultimately that is what helped make us successful. Rule one in business that they don't teach you in school? Don't do anything without an exceptional lawyer and CPA in your court.
What Percentage Of Any Judgment Does An Attorney Get In A Wrongful Death Or Malpractice Lawsuit?
In Las Vegas What Are The Legal Options If The Will Of A Loved One Is Blocked From Entering Probate?
My Uncle Passed Away In Las Vegas, Clark County, Nevada During February Of This Year And We Have Not Been Notified By The Trustees Of The Estate Regarding Probate. I Cannot Prove That I Was In The Will Other Than My Uncle Mentioning It When I Lived With Him.
I Can Prove That My Uncle'S Estate Exceeds $10-15 Million (This Is Public Information) And That My Brothers And I Are The Only Living Relatives Other Than A Wife He Married Very Late In Life. The Wife (Of 5 Years) Refuses To Answer Our Letters And We Do Not Have A Telephone Number For Her.
My Brothers And I Are Worried That The Will Never Entered Probate And That My Uncle'S Wife Is Living Off Of The Trust And Assets.
Unfortunately, I Live In Florida And Cannot Afford To Move Back To Las Vegas.
When the wife is still living you more than likely will have to deal with her for this purpose after thing do settle down and you get a better idea of where things stand and where they are going at this time in your life.
The wife will be using the below enclosed information if they were still legally married after December 31 2010 for the 2011 tax year MFJ income tax return.
For the tax year of death the surviving spouse will file as married filing jointly the same as in past years using all of the itemized deductions and medical expenses that they are eligible to claim. The surviving spouse will be signing the tax return as a surviving spouse. Funeral expenses are not deductible on the individual tax return.
The surviving spouse alone can file the joint return if no personal representative has been appointed before the due date for filing the final joint return for the year of death. This also applies to the return for the preceding year if the decedent died after the close of the preceding tax year and before the due date for filing that return.
The word DECEASED, the decedent's name, and the date of death should be written across the top of the tax return. In the name and address space the surviving spouse should write the name and address of the decedent and, if a joint return, of the surviving spouse.
The surviving spouse (on a joint return) should sign the return and write in the signature area Filing as surviving spouse.
For more information go to www.irs.gov and use the search boxes for Publication 559 Survivors, Executors, and Administrators
This publication is designed to help those in charge of the property (estate) of an individual who has died (decedent). It shows them how to complete and file federal income tax returns and points out their responsibility to pay any taxes due.
A comprehensive example, using tax forms, is included near the end of this publication.
For more information the enclosed web site has some very useful information that you can use.
You also do not want to forget about the state tax returns.
Hope that you find the above enclosed information useful and good luck to you. 10/30/2011

What Type Of Law Does A Medical Marijuana Lawyer Study?
I'M Curious To Know What Type Of Law Degree Lawyers Who Practice In Medical Marijuana Cases Usually Study For.
A law degree.
Graduates of Law School receive a Doctor of Jurisprudence (abbreviated J.D.). To practice law the graduate passes the Bar for the State and begins a study or specialized area of practice.
Every JD studies the same thing; choices for assignments allow the student get a feel for different area of the law. Then go on to do bankruptcy, divorce, criminal, etc. They also chose to prosecute or defend.
What Does A Cpa Lawyer Do?
I'M Thinking Of Becoming A Lawyer In The Future, And A Lot Of People Advised Me To Become A Cpa Lawyer. I Have No Idea What They Do, Though! Also, What Are The Other Types Of Lawyers? I'Ve Only Heard Of Criminal Lawyers & Corporate Lawyers.
Certified Public Accountant - you work with tax laws - which are constantly changing. LOTS and LOTS of paperwork. You'll need to love working with details and lots of paperwork. You'll be helping the rich find ways to bend the tax laws and NOT pay taxes.
But, overall, becoming a CPA is a good idea - there are LOTS of future job opportunities there. But forget about the part about becoming a Lawyer. Just stick with the CPA part.
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.
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! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. 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.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
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.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
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!!<<< Even after paying the expensive tuition, you still need to pay for books, room and board, and miscellaneous fees.
The legal profession leaves little room for outside interests. Commitment to the law profession tends to produce an unbalanced lifestyle.
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.
The competition to get into law school is intense. Applicants to most law schools greatly exceed the number that can be admitted.
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 (at an alarming rate), 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. And the competition is fierce in TODAY's job market!!
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites: http://informeddecisionmaking.blogspot.c...
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**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 future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several attorneys from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing attorneys is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know a practicing lawyer, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many attorneys. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities. <<<
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.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)
