The majority of people today do not think about choosing a lawyer right up until they are in desperate need. The lawful dilemma may possibly be personal, like family law, for a breakup or if you are searching for a bankrupcy or trust law firm. It may be a felony situation you want to be defended on. Companies require attorneys as well, whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unfounded business strategies. Tax lawyers are also very helpful when coping with government complications. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A big, full service law firm has a number of attorneys with distinct areas of competence, so relying on your company legal issue, you can instantly hold on to the best lawyer or attorney to fulfill your ongoing need without having to start your search each time you need legal help.It is most effective to locate a legal representative you can have confidence in. You really want one with a decent record, who issincere, productive, and wins cases. You would like to have confidence that they will represent you thoroughly and invoice you fairly for their services. From time to time a recommendation from a buddy or business affiliate can be helpful, having said that you should continue to keep your options open and review all the firms available, simply because when you want legal help, you need it instantly and you desire the very best you can manage to pay for.

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..................

Mesothelioma:I Had Rare Mesothelioma Cells Found?
I Had Rare Mesothelial Cells Found In Some Fluid Taken Out Of The Area Around My Lungs. No Malignant Cells Were Seen. I Have Scaring Seen In X Rays Of My Lungs. I Just Found Out That I Was Most Likely Exposed To Asbestos For Several Years Of Ceiling Replacement Work I Did. Does Anyone Know If I Am Heading For Mesothelioma? Is There Anything I Can Do To Prevent It?
Asbestos exposure does increase your risk of mesothelioma (and of lung cancer - MUCH MORE so if you also smoke). If no malignant cells were found there is yet no sign of a clear mesothelioma but your pleural fluid with mesothelial cells must be regarded as a warning sign. There is unfortunately no preventive therapy.

Can Someone In A Legal Services Mos In The Usmc Volunteer To Do That Job In Iraq Or Afghanistan?
It Doesnt Seem Like An Mos That They Need Much Of In That Area....But, If A Marine Wanted To Serve There And Still Get Experience In That Field, Is It A Possiblilty?
Yes, of course. I was legal services in the US Army and there were USMC legal folks with near me in Iraq. You are needed more than you think...divorces, legal assistance, citizenship, marriage, wills, power of attorneys, criminal law, contract law, admin law, claims, operational law, trial defense, taxes, court reporting, etc. We did all that plus, regular convoy ops and guard duty. hell I got wounded with a bunch of guys from 3/8 in Ramadi in 2006 as a paralegal. My females went on missions (Lioness) where they searched houses and buildings with our female interperters and the line units (cav, infantry, Marine, Army) weekly. We didn't sit on a FOB.
So don't think we are pogues out there especially if you are at around an Army brigade or Marine RCT.
Help!! Any Family Law Lawyers Amongst Us? I Need Some Help Interpreting Part Of A Legal Custody Document...?
&Quot;Should Either Parent Require Childcare For Ten Or More Hours While The Child Is In His/Her Physical Care,The Other Parent Shall Have First Option To Provide Such Care&Quot;.
My Daughter Drops Her Toddler At Day Care At 745Am. She Usually Is Able To Pick Her Up Her Baby Before Or At The 10Hr Mark. However Does The Wording Of The Above Custody Order Imply That The Father Has The Legal Right To Pick Up The Baby As Early As He Wants From Day Care Once He Determines That The Baby Will Be In Daycare Over 10Hours
If you have a attorney who handled this or a domestic court to call, you should ask for a clarification. I don't take the order as permission to just take the child. I do see it as the option of the other parent making arrangements to have the child for the period where the other parent would be unable to have the child rather than a placement facility if the child will be away for 10 or more hours as a job or other need, then the father would be able to request to have the child on those time periods. For instance , he may work 11 to 7 and wish to keep his child from 8 to 6 if he wished to rather than have the child in daycare. He may get off weekdays instead of weekends and the care would interfere with days he could have custody to be with his child with quality time. Domestic Relations would be able to help with this and you should have a office in your area. I am not a lawyer, just have had domestic relations classes and lived through it as a child of a divorced family.
