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.

Volunteer In A Law Office?
Hello, I'M Currently Interested In Law But I'M Not A Law Student. Do You Think A Law Office Would Allow Me To Volunteer As An Office Assistant, Or Is That Just Plain Silly.
I would like to make a suggestion: DON'T invest your time in the vocational field of Law.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest TIME and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. 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. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track every activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is fiction - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
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.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
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, 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 <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
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 have too many law schools. We are 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.
If you don't believe me, then just 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 job availability in the field of Law..................

My 15 Yr Old Daughter Wants To Run Away Because Her Mother Wont Let Me See Her. Can I Legally Go Get Her?
I Am In The Beginning Of A Custody Battle For My 15 Year Old Daughter In The State Of Maryland. My Ex ( We Were Never Married) Has Not Let Me See Or Talk To Her For The Past 4 Months. She Finally Called Me Last Night And Told Me She Is Running Away Because She Can'T Stand To Be At Her Mother'S House Any Longer Due To Neglect. I Can'T Afford A Lawyer And Have No Clue What My Rights Are. I Contacted Cps Today And They Said They Were Not Allowed To Give Me Any Advice But I Could File A Complaint. My Daughter Stated That If I Don'T Come And Get Her She Will Run Away And Nobody Will Know Where She Is. Can I Legally Go And Get Her? Please Help. Thank You!
If there is no custody agreement in place, and especially if you are not recognized as the father, you could be charged with kidnapping or custodial interference. If you are concerned about your child's welfare, you could file a complaint with CPS. If you have to borrow money, or get a second (or third) job, you should retain a reputable attorney specializing in family law. You may also be able to contact your local legal aid office, which may be able to provide low-cost legal representation.
Now That Tsarnaev Has Gotten The Death Penalty, News Is Saying His Attorney Will Be Appealing For Over A Decade. He Will Sit On Death Row?
For A Few Decades.
Who Pays His Attorney Fees? Tsarnaev Isn'T Paying A Cent. So Who Does? Is He A State Attorney? Does That Mean Taxpayers Pay His Fees? If So, That'S Not Fair.
Yes, the taxpayer ends up paying for his attorney. And for the cost of the court and judges hearing the appeals. The news is right - because almost endless appeals are allowed, the average prisoner sentenced to death is on death row for over ten years, and more die there than ever get executed. Fun fact I discovered when I was looking at this earlier - since the death penalty was reinstated for federal crimes in 1988, 74 have been sentenced to death but only 3 have been executed. The rest have either died or are still appealing, at YOUR expense.
This is a reason often given for opposing the death penalty, that because of the legal costs, it's actually cheaper for taxpayers just to sentence him to life without parole.
It makes me wonder if the US actually believes in the death penalty. Why doesn't it USE it more often, or doesn't it trust its own courts?
I'm British and what we did before abolishing the whole thing 50 years ago was allow only three appeals and six weeks at most to make them. If they failed, you hanged (the one and only method we used was long drop hanging) at most six weeks after the judge passed sentence. By the way, I see what your religion is... if a murderer didn't appeal and wasn't reprieved, the execution would be three weeks after sentence, traditionally to allow three clear Sundays for him to make peace with God. We are an officially Christian country (well, the England part is) so that was the way. It is still the law that every English prison must have a Church of England chaplain and if you happen to be Catholic or something else, there will be provision for you too. For Catholics, there will be a priest to say Mass every week.
If you can't get it right after a trial AND three appeals, you never will, and we never noticeably hanged more of the wrong people than the US currently executes. There wasn't even an argument about the method - the measured long drop is VERY quick and kills the prisoner of a broken neck. It was just the fact that just occasionally courts DO get it wrong that caused Parliament to abolish the death sentence for murder - is killing someone by mistake EVER right? What we now have is a mandatory life sentence, with the possibility of a whole life term (i.e. without parole) if the crime deserves it.
I suspect that if Tsarnaev had done what he did in England, a whole life term would have been the sentence. I say that because of the Lee Rigby case - he was a British soldier who was hacked to death in the street by two fanatical Muslims a couple of years ago, just because they wanted to "get their revenge" on the army for what it is doing against al-Qaeda etc. One got a whole life term, the other got life with a minimum of 45 years - which means he's going to be about 70 before he even gets considered for parole.
There are serial killers who committed suicide in prison rather than face the rest of their life there. They thought death was the easy way out. Isn't that another thought about the death penalty?
Do Top Law Firms Hire Paralegals Or Accept Them As Interns?
Just Wondering, Because It Seems That Only Those Who Are Trying To Become A Lawyer (Not A Paralegal) Get The Paralegal Position At A Top Law Firm.
Makes sense. As long as there are enough lawyers to be available to get the job then that will always be the case.
