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. You should then take the time to check out independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure to look at the reviews instead of just relying upon their overall rating.

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. It is vital that you follow all of these steps to actually find someone containing the right measure of experience to help you get the perfect outcome.

Why Go To Law School And Not Be A Lawyer?
Why Would Someone Go To Law School, Get The Law Degree, And Then Not Take The Bar Exam? Or Take The Bar Exam, Pass, And Then Don'T Practice?
There are a lot of other jobs than being a lawyer that one can do with a law degree.
A lot of people earn law degrees and then join law schools (or other university colleges, such as business schools) as faculty members (instructors, lecturers, professors, etc.).
A law degree is great preparation for a business/corporate career.
A law degree is great if you want to be an author or a writer and write about law-related issues.
A law degree is great to be a legal journalist (i.e., a law reporter on TV/radio, or a writer for a newspaper/magazine column).
Just some thoughts.
Becoming A Lawyer Advice?
I Am A Community College Student Looking To Transfer And Going To Major In Political Science. I Am Thinking About Becoming A Lawyer And Was Wondering What Law School Is Like? What Tests, Homework, Reading, Etc.. Is Like? Please Let Me Know
Forget law school. Law school is an absolute scam. 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.
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....
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 if you do 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 <<this would be your competition. 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. Law schools are cash cows.
>>>>>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)!!***<<<<<

**Check out these websites:
(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.
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.

>>>>>>>>Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession.
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. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. 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)
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with 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.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.

In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)
