Can Someone Help Me Find An Affordable Criminal Attorney In Atlanta?
I Need A Criminal Attorney For My Son That's Facing A Murder Charge. I Have Contacted Several People However They Are Asking Between 10K And 25K, I Know There Is Someone Out There Cheaper Than That!
I doubt that you are going to find an attorney for less than that. You can look in the local phone book for the local american bar association and they can give you a list of criminal defense attorneys and perhaps some attorneys that do court appointed cases. You can ask if they know of any that do pro bono cases, it never hurts to ask.
If all else fails and you can't find one, have your son request a court appointed attorney, they will give him a form to fill out and if the court finds that he is indigent, they will appoint him one. If they turn him down the first time go back to the court with the names and firms of at least 3 or 4 attorneys that you have tried to hire and were turned down, that may change his mind and he'll appoint him an attorney.

Arizona Has Banned Public Aid To Services That Also Provide Abortions. Religion Interfering With Politics?
Many Citizens Also Oppose Their Taxes Going Toward Military Excursions And Space Exploration, But No Legislature Even Considers Restrictions On Tax Money For Those Purposes. What Is The Justification For Excluding Aid To Health Providers Like Planned Parenthood Because They Also Provide Abortions? Or On Foreign Aid That Includes Information On Birth Control And Abortions? Too Much Kowtowing To Religious Extremists? The Governor Insists Her Signature Reflects The Views Of The Majority Of Citizens. Is That True? Or Just The Views Of A Vocal Minority? And Does It Matter What The Majority Opinion Du Jour Is In A Constitutional Republic?
That abortions are legal and also that tax money does not fund them is the COMPROMISE between The Christian right and the liberal left. You do understand there needs to be compromise? You secularists seem to think only you should have your way.
Question About Japanese Divorce Law?
Something Doesn'T Sound Right About This. Can Someone Please Give Me A Little Insight?
I Have A Close Friend That Was Married In Japan. She Is From The Us And She Married A Japanese Man Almost 20 Years Ago. They Had 2 Kids Together - 10 And 8 Years Old.
She Now Wants A Divorce. They Went Through Separation Proceedings Already, But They Couldn'T Agree On Who Would Keep The Children.
She Is Telling Me That She Is Stuck In Limbo For The Time Being Because If She Does File For Divorce, She Will Lose All Access To Her Children Because She Is Not Japanese. Her Husband Also Has His Parents Living With Him, So Because Of That, He Would Gain Custody Of The Children Because His Parents Are There To Take Care Of Them. She Basically Has 2 Strikes Against Her Right Off The Bat.
She Says Her Only Recourse Is To Wait Until Her Children Of An Age In Which They Can Possibly Influence With Which Parent They Would Stay. I Don'T Know What That Age Is In Japan, So If Someone Knows That, It Would Be Very Helpful As Well. Apparently, There Is Also No Joint Custody In Japan.
Is There No Court Mediation Available Like In The States To Determine These Things Or Is It That Cut And Dry Over There? Something Just Doesn’T Sound Right About This. She Puts 20 Years Into A Marriage And She Is Just Going To Lose All Access To Her Children Because Her Husband Is A Lying, Controlling And Manipulative Jerk? I Realize Life Isn’T Fair, But Seriously?
I'm sorry that your friend is going through this and I can't give you legal answers but being half and formerly living there, I can tell you that culturally this is normal. My guess is that the Japanese side of the family does not want to lose the children as they fear they will move back to America with the mother. I assume that due to Japanese laws, once divorced, your friend will lose her claim to residency unless she became a citizen so that could cause her to move back home and put the fear in the in-laws. For more legal advice, please see the US Embassy of Japan's page on divorce and children custody. It is greatly advised she has someone who can translate legalese for her.
I cannot verify the accuracy but wikipedia states, "Joint custody of children ends upon divorce. In a divorce by agreement, the husband and wife must determine which parent will have custody of each child. In other types of divorce, custody is determined by the mediator or judge, with a strong preference toward custody by the mother (especially with regard to children born after the divorce)."
I don't know enough divorced w/ children families in Japan but I think it's sole custody only but can have mutual agreement for visits.
Corporate Law Career?
Im A Junior In High School And Im Interested In Getting Some Info On Corporate Law. What Do Corporate Lawyers Do Exactly? What Are The Benefits? What Are The Most Profitable Corporations To Work For? If I Decide To Pursue A Career In Corporate Law, What Classes Should I Take In High School And In College?
"Corporate" law is a very vague term. Depending on the firm you work for, you could do a variety of things. 90% of my clients are homeowners associations and condominiums, but I am a corporate lawyer. (Homeowners associations and condominiums are actually corporations.) Small businesses and international companies are corporations ( or LLC's, LP's, LLP's, LLLP's ... it goes on). "Corporate" law is a very broad term. I've been involved in contract dispute, legal reaserch, forming new companies, criminal investigations, civil lawsuits, settling the estate of someone who died, and divorce cases.
We read a lot of laws and cases: write several pages a day of various letters, memos, contracts, etc.; meet with boards of directors, shareholders, and opposing counsel, go to court, and counsel our clients.
We are very well paid, but we work very long hours.
Take a wide variety of courses. They will all serve you well. Do not major in pre-law. It is a wasted degree. If you can't pick a major you like, then pick liberal arts. It will teach you how to think. That's a very valuable skill in life, not just the law.
What Are The Differences Between A Prosecutor And A Defense Attorney?
I Want To Know The Key Differences Between These Two. I Plan On Studying Law And Criminal Justice In The Future And I Want To Know About These Two Professions First, They'Re The Ones That Interest Me The Most. What Are Their Roles In Court? And What Makes Them So Different From Each Other?
The prosecutor does the ame job in civil and criminal matters. In criminal, they generally work for a government body (city, state, county, federal) and in civil cases they work for an individual or corporation. The prosecutors work for the side that accuses the defendant of the wrong action. Their job is to seek the most penalty that the law will allow.
The defense attorney works for the accused in both civil and criminal cases. Their job is to keep their client from being convicted of the charges and/or getting the least punishment possible.
