This will make the procedure of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below it will be possible to limit your research to the correct one in very little time. The first task is to make a selection of the lawyers that happen to be listed in your area that specialize in your needs. While you are causeing this to be list you must only include those which you have an effective vibe about according to their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their site. There you should be able to find how many years they are practicing and several general details about their success rates. At this stage your list should have shrunken further to individuals that you just felt had professional websites along with an appropriate volume of experience.

Finally, you will need to talk to a minimum of the final three lawyers who have the credentials you are searching for. This provides you with enough time to genuinely evaluate how interested they may be in representing your case.

I Need A Serious Answer... Preferably Legal Advice...?
I Am 23 Years Old And I Never Lived With My Father. He Would Send My Mom Some Money Under The Books Each Month And We Never Filed For Child Support. Would We Be Able To Take Him To Court For All The Years Of Unpayed Child Support Or Is It Too Late? Not To Mention, He Has Been A Doctor My Whole Life And Owes Us Way More Than He Used To Send Us Each Month. Please Advise?
First, one is only legally permitted to provide legal advice if he/she is licensed in that state. Any opinions set forth below are merely ideas/guidelines based upon basic principals followed in the majority of states, and should not be construed as legal advice. For legal advice, you should consult with an attorney licensed in your state.
Having said that, you need to check the statute of limitations for child support actions in your state. You have been an adult for five years, and my guess is that the statute of limitations has expired.
If the statute of limitations has not expired, you need to talk to your attorney about the proper method of obtaining child support for all 18 years of your minority.
As with most rights, they can be waived either intentionally (or unintentionally). The statute of limitations is intended to prevent claims from being asserted long after the damage has been done, and to allow all sides a fair opportunity to present their case without the evidence becoming too stale. There are a very very limited number of exceptions to the statutes of limitations, none of which would appear to apply in your case. You should, however, consult with an attorney, for if your claim is not barred, the amount at stake could be substantial.
Slip And Fall After Knee Surgery?
I Had Knee Surgery With A Femoral Block And Never Got Crutches After Later That Night I Fell Going To The Bathroom And Caused More Damage To My Knee And Other Injuries. I Was Told To Talk To A Slip And Fall Attorney Would That Be Correct?
Depends on where you fell and why. In many knee surgeries crutches are no longer prescribed as they delay healing. If you fell due the negligence of the owner of the bathroom, i.e. spilled liquid on the floor and did not clean it or post a warning, you could sue them for the cost of any further injury as well as pain and suffering. If you just fell because you fell, there is no one to blame but yourself.
If it was because of negligence, you will have to prove the negligence, as well as quantify the cost of any further surgeries,additional lost work, and how you suffered as a result. Unless you had to go to the hospital and have an emergency surgery as a result of the fall, and can prove negligence, the case is probably not worth most attorneys time. These cases are very hard to prove, and unless you have several thousand in immediate hospital bills and extended time away from work as a result, they are not worth taking. Most Slip and Fall attorneys will work on contingency and not take a case unless its a slam dunk and will make them a lot of money. If you hire a non-contingency attorney, they are more likely to take your case, but if you loose, you will be out a lot of money in legal fees.
Do Law Firms Hire Corporate Lawyers?
I Want To Be A Corporate Lawyer And I Was Wondering Who Hire Corporate Lawyers? Law Firms Or Businesses?
There are positions for corporate attorneys in many large corporations, but most hire law firms to accomplish most of the sales, acquisitions. mergers, IPOs etc. If you look in a legal directory you will find the names of law firms that offer corporate services. Most big cities have corporate law firms, New York and Washington D,C, probably have the most. If you are looking to work in those circles you will need to attend a highly ranked law school, and have a business or economics undergrad degree. ALso it helps to be at the top of your class.

Can I Move To Live And Work In The Uk If I Am Offered A Job In A Family Law Firm Or Small Business?
My Brother Is A British Citizen And Knows A Friend Who Runs A Small Law Firm. I Have Actually Lived In The Uk For Over 16 Years But I Never Acquired Residency Because I Kept Moving Around Due To The Nature Of My Father’S Job. I Studied Law In The Uk And My Brother Wants Me To Take On A Job In The Family Business. I Understand That Law Is Not On The Shortage Occupation List But Surely I Should Be Able To Take On This Role As It Is A Family Business. Could He Sponsor My Work Permit?
It depends. The fact that it is a family firm and you know the owner is in itself no bar to your employment but the firm cannot avoid the immigration rules based on the fact that it is a family business and it wishes to employ a family member. All non EU nationals wishing to work in the UK are subject to immigration controls, family business or otherwise.
The fact that law is not on the shortage occupation list is not a bar to employment. Unfortunately, many people on here believe that a job has to be on the SOL because they don't understand the distinction between the SOL and the occupations covered by the Codes of Practice, of which certain professions including law, do qualify for a work visa.
As a non EEA national, the only way you can work in the UK is on a Tier 2 visa. This requires you to have a UK employer who is registered and licensed by the Home Office to employ non EEA nationals. Is this firm licensed and on the register of sponsors? If not, they cannot employ you and without a certificate of sponsorship (only issued by registered sponsors) you cannot acquire a work visa.
Only certain occupations qualify for a work visa and all require at least a degree level qualification. See tables 1 and 2 for the only jobs that qualify. As you can see solicitors are on the list and must be earning at least £20,500 as a new entrant or £28,000 as an experienced worker to be eligible for a visa.
Your prospective employer must carry out a resident market test to prove that not one single, suitably qualified resident worker is available to fill the post unless the job pays over £153,500 or it's on the shortage occupation list.
The resident market test involves four weeks of extensive advertising across the jobcentre network and in trade and national press so it's a lengthy and expensive process. Most employers will not go to the time and expense unless they particularly want a specific candidate or they are having trouble recruiting from the resident market. Is your law degree and subsequent experience superior to any other likely applicants? If a resident worker who is more highly qualified for the position applies, the firm cannot offer the post to you.
The shortage occupation list is a list of occupations which suffer from an agreed shortage of skilled personnel in the UK to satisfy demand. Most of these occupations are very highly specialised jobs in the arts, technology, engineering science and medicine.
Only if the employer can satisfy UKVI that there are no resident workers available can he provide you with a certificate of sponsorship which is a unique reference number that you use to apply for your visa.
What Is Probate Court,And How Long Does It Take If Someone Protests?
probate happens when someone dies with or without a will. the court basically intervenes upon one's passing and distributes the deceased person's estate accordingly. if there's a will, then it will go to the heirs (after creditors, "death taxes" and court fees are paid). if there is no will, then the court will determine who the rightful heirs are. if no heirs exist, then the state gets the $. if someone protests (like in the case of anna nicole smith) then the process could be delayed. usually, the simplest probate can be 6 mos long. complicated ones could last 30 mos or more.
Why An Evidentiary Hearing For Family Court?
My Son Has Been Trying To Get 50/50 Custody Of His Daughter. The Case Has Been Going On For 2 Years (He Initiated It Because Of The Mother'S &Quot;Behavior&Quot;). There Have Been More That 5 Mediation Meetings (The Mom Only Showed Up To 5) And More Than 10 Court Hearings (She Didn'T Show Up To The First Few).
Today The Judge Decided To Make A Call For An &Quot;Evidentiary Hearing&Quot;. What Is Supposed To Happen During This Hearing And What'S The Purpose? Will This Be The Final Decision?
This is the time that actual evidence has to be presented to the court. This would include statements from people who know the mother, the father etc...plus possibly including financial situations, housing situations etc. This simply means that she can not give her opinion, nor can you. If has to be a provable situation or circumstance that shows that there is a reason for the modification of the current custody.
If he knows that the mother has behaved badly, evidence will have to be presented to show that this is a true claim and that the mothers behavior is in some way injurious to the child. Remember...proof, not opinions.
If a guardian ad litem has been appointed by the court, then the report from him or her would be presented at this same time....as would any other report from doctors, psychiatrists or child protective services if any.
