Questions About Different Types Of Lawyers.?
You Can'T Be A Prosecuting Attorney And Have A Law Firm, Correct? What Are Some Lawyers Like Prosecutors That Are Part Of A Law Firm? Thanks!
Types of Law
You only need to look at the yellow page ads to realize that there are numerous types of lawyers and areas of law. In non-routine legal matters, you will want to use a specialized lawyer to ensure that you obtain the highest quality of legal advice. Below are some common types of specialized lawyers:
1) mesothelioma lawyers;
2) divorce lawyers;
3) motor vehicle accident lawyers;
4) immigration lawyers;
5) family lawyers;
6) accident and personal injury lawyers;
7) asbestos lawyers;
8) business and corporate lawyers;
9) bankruptcy lawyers; and
10) employment lawyers.
Upon reviewing the list, it’s obvious that these areas of law are all very different. Divorce law and immigration law are two completely different fields and knowledge of one area will be useless to the other. If you were getting a divorce you would not want an immigration lawyer to represent you. Before hiring any attorney, make sure you know their areas of speciality and their background. Unfortunately, some general lawyers may not admit that they are not the best person to represent your interests in a particular matter.
Types-of-Lawyers.com is dedicated to providing you with the relevant information you need to ensure that you obtain proper legal representation. Before using an attorney you need to learn what questions to ask and which credentials to look for. Lawsuits and legal matters can be overwhelming, finding the right lawyer should not be.
Personal Injury Claim Calculated?
How Is The Worth Of A Personal Injury Claim Calculated?
This is a great question without an easy answer. No two situations or the parties involved, are the same. The best service you can do for yourself is directly contact attorneys specializing in personal injury law. In all likelihood, they'll need you to go into detail before they can give you an estimate. No good attorney is going to give you a specific amount. It is more likely to be a range. If someone is hard and fast on an amount they think they can get for your injury, be suspicious and keep on looking for the right lawyer.
Good luck with your situation,
New Jersey Bar Association?
Hey I'M In 10Th Grade But Know What I Want To Be When I Go Into College. A Lawyer. Believe Me I Have Though It Over And I Have Decided So Now I Want To Ask This. I Plan On Trying To Get Into William And Mary In Williamsburg And I Think I Can I Am Doing Very Well In High School Thus Far. But Heres The Thing. I Would Want To Work In Nj At A Firm Or Maybe New York But Yeah This Would Be Where I Would Wanna Work, The Tri-State Area. I Live In Central Jersey And Plan On Living Here A Long Time. So Heres The Question:
If I Go To College And Law School Down In Virginia And Want To Work In Nj/Ny, Don'T I Have To Take The Bar Exam In Either New York Or New Jersey? How Does This Work Exactly?
Going to law school gets you a law degree, a J.D., and you are free to take the bar for any state. The NJ and NY bars are different, with the NY bar having eight more sections. An attorney friend gave me a piece of advice: take the multistate PA bar, because NY honors it and you can circumvent having to take the NY bar itself, which is arguably much harder. Good luck, and my advice, I'd start prepping for the LSATS now haha, I just finished with them and they suck.
My Legal Insurance Appointed A Solicitor To Defend A Case Filed Against Me For Not Completing A Purchase.?
The Solicitor Represented Me And The Case Lasted For Nearly 2 Years. Finally The Case Was Settled Outside The Court And The Solicitor Recommended To Accept The Offer. The Solicitor Is Asking Me To Pay All The Legal Costs As The Terms Of The Policy Mention That The Reasonable Offer Has To Be Accepted Which I Did And Next Term Is All Effor Need To Be Made To Recover Legal Costs. I Asked Solicitor To Make Effort To Recover Legal Costs But Builder Refused The Pay The Legal Costs. The Total Cost Of The Solicitor Is Within The Cover Limit But Still Solicitor Is Asking Me To Pay Hefty Thousands Of Pounds Although I Had Mentioned In Several Emails To Her That I Do Not Have Any Money To Fund This Legal Case And Make Sure What Ever She Is Doing Falls Within The Limit Of My Insurance. I Would Not Have Employed Any Solicitor If I Knew I Will Require The Money And Represented Myself But As Insurance Approved The Cover And The Solicitor Gave The Impression That I Am Covered Upto 50000 Under My Home Insurance I Went Along With The Solicitor Appointed By The Insurance. The Settlement Of The Case Is In The Form Of Shares In A Property Owned By 20 Purchasers So I Do Not Even Have Access To The Money Till That Property Is Sold Which May Be After Several Years. I Did Not Sign Any Contract With The Solicitor As I Had Been Constantly Reminding Her That Legal Costs Should Be Covered My Insurance And I Can Not Afford Any Costs. Any Suggestion? I Am Thinking Of Writing To Law Society And Bar Association For This Misguidance And Probably To Financial Ombudsman To Complaint About This Insurance Policy.

If you remain unsatisfied, you may contact the Legal Ombudsman. The Legal Ombudsman deals with all complaints about service provided by the legal profession.

What we do
The primary responsibility for ensuring compliance with regulatory obligations rests with the firm itself. We may decide to investigate you as an individual where, for example, there is evidence of personal culpability.
If we decide a rule or regulation has been breached, the outcome will depend on the gravity of the breach. Where we find a breach of a rule against an individual the outcome depends on the type of regulated person. We do not have the power to award compensation.
There are cases where we decide not to investigate, and some issues are generally excluded from investigation.
We acknowledge all initial reports of information by
thanking you for providing the information
confirming how we handle your information, and
explaining that we do not usually stay in contact with people providing information and the reasons why.
Sometimes we may decide to contact you again if
we believe that you have, or have access to, further information which we need to take the right action, and/or
we think you may be required to act as a witness or to provide a witness statement.
Read more about our approach to handling information that you have sent to us.

Allegations of misconduct made more than six months after the alleged misconduct or where there is a clear alternative legal remedy available not yet pursued
Non-payment of Counsel's fees, unless reported by the Bar Council on the basis that an individual has failed to comply with a decision from the Joint Tribunal or that an individual or firm has become subject to the Bar's Withdrawal of Credit Scheme
