3 Approaches To Know You've Picked The Right Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to endure the legal court system, specifically if you lack confidence inside your legal team. Listed here are three important strategies to understand that you've hired the proper lawyer: 1. They Focus On Your Form Of Case What the law states is usually tricky and this requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you really need a legal representative, try to find person who deals with the issue you're facing. Even though a member of family or friend recommends you employ a company they know, once they don't use a focus that's just like your case, keep looking. When your attorney is an expert, especially in the hassle you're facing, you understand you've hired the right choice. 2. The Lawyer Includes A Winning Record Based on the circumstances, it can be difficult to win an instance, specifically if the team working for you has minimal to no experience. Try to find practices that have won numerous cases that relate to yours. Even though this is no guarantee that you case will probably be won, it gives you a much better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond If the attorney you've chosen takes time to listen to your concerns and reply to your inquiries, you've probably hired the right one. No matter how busy they may be or how small your concerns seem using their perspective, it's crucial that they react to you inside a caring and timely manner. From the aim of take a look at a regular citizen who isn't informed about the judicial system, court cases could be pretty scary you want updates and to feel as if you're part of the solution. Some attorneys are merely considerably better to you and the case than the others. Be sure you've hired the most suitable team for the circumstances, to actually can place the matter behind you immediately. Faith within your legal representative is the first step to winning any case.

Best Law Firm In The Us?
What Is The Biggest And Best Law Firm In The Us? Please Be Descriptive And Detailed To Be Chosen As Best Answer
The best law firm in terms of actual skill and results depends on the state and the area of practice, but almost of all of the "Big Law" firms are in NYC and Washington DC. Personally, I'd choose a local firm for most things involving a state court, like personal injury, divorce, probate, contracts, etc., but these big-time firms are the go-to firms for huge Federal litigation, planning, and lobbying, and for international transactions. Vault does some surveying every year for this kind of thing, and the top five are:
Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz
Cravath, Swaine, & Moore
Sullivan & Cromwell
David, Polk, & Wardwell
If you're thinking about trying to work for one of these firms, don't even bother finding a house to rent or buy. You'd be better-suited just getting a cot and a wardrobe for your office and sleeping there. Your work hours will basically reduce your time at home to an average of 6 hours a night. I had a professor who worked at Skadden. He told us he quit because after doing a major securities deal, he had been away from his apartment for so long he literally forgot where it was. The only reason he found it was because the dry cleaners he used were on the first floor of his building and he got the receipts from his secretary. After he found out he could earn over $100k a year teaching at a law school working 40-50 hours a week, he bailed. His words were something to the effect of, "I like pizza, beer, ESPN, and hiking. I don't need to work that much to pay for those things."
Is Being A Fraud Investigater A Good Career?
Whats A Day In The Joob?
Do You Regret Being A Fraud Investigater?
Is It A Stressfull Job?
Do You Like It?
You apparently don't know what you are talking about. Every government agency or organization and every type of business in every type of industry investigates fraud. They are NOT "fraud investigators." They do it as part of their regular jobs.
The credit card companies investigate fraud. The banks examiners investigate fraud. Lawyers investigate fraud. CPAs investigate fraud. The FBI investigates fraud. The CIA investigates fraud. The OIG investigates fraud. All mortgage companies investigate fraud. The SSA investigates fraud. The IRS investigates fraud. Every state in the U.S. has a State Attorney's office that investigates fraud. Every state has a state labor board that investigates fraud. The SEC investigates fraud. All state tax auditors investigate fraud. All welfare and government assistance program have people who investigate fraud.
There are thousands and thousands of people with jobs as inspectors, examiners, auditors, administrators, etc., in every phase of government and business who do their regular jobs and sometimes discover fraud. Fraud is generally not something that is known in advance, but is discovered during the normal routine performance of a person's job.
Fraud is a crime and discovering it by an inspection or audit can become a dangerous job as sometimes it leads to criminal charges. And those people don't want to get caught. And, yes, it can be a very stressful job. It's not necessarily a job you would want to have as you could get shot and killed by someone avoiding detection and arrest.
Generally speaking, you should try to avoid jobs that are stressful as they cause high blood pressure, diabetes, and other health problems, and can kill you. Good luck.
Attorney / Lawyer / Child Custody / Divorce?
A Family Member Is Going Through A Divorce, Papers Has Not Been File Yet? He Would Like To Know A Good Attorney Lawyer To Help Him. He Said That He Only Makes $11,000.00 Or Less A Year And Has Children. He Said That His Wife Kick Him Out & Put His Stuff On The Street. He Lives In Indianapolis, Indiana; Does Anyone Know Of Any Good Lawyer. He Said He Tried Aid But His Wife Made To Much Money, So They Are Not Willing To Help Him. I Feel He Need To Act Now Before Time Gets Away? Thanks To All That Can Help?
He is going to have to contact the Indianapolis Legal Aid Society.
If his wife kicked him out of the house and he has no place to live, then he has a right to spousal support if his wife makes more money than he does.
I don't think they can hold his wife making more money than he does against him, if that money is not at his disposal.
What I do think happened, is he tried to call them and failed to make an appointment. They will not consult over the phone. You have to go in after making an appointment.
The only other thing he can do is find a family law clinic in the area under the ProBono resources listed here:
After that he's just going to have to go through the yellow pages until he finds the right lawyer. A lot of times courts will award the dependent spouse attorney's fees up front.
Finally, he could possibly have his wife arrested for unlawfully evicting him from the home and putting his stuff out on the streets. Most landlords would go to jail for that. That presumes of course there was no court order giving the wife possession of the marital home.
What Is The Legal Department/Law Firm Employee Structure For Non Attorneys?
I'M A Career Changer And I Want To Know If There Is Possibility For Progression/Career Advancement If You Are Not An Attorney And Work In Legal Departments/Law Firms.
There isn't any. 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.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. 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.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
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: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. 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 - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
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!!<<<
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 (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.
>>>>>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)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites: http://informeddecisionmaking.blogspot.c...
(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. 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 future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several legal professionals from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing employed legal professionals is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know an employed legal professional, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many legal professionals. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities.
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.
There are MANY issues of working in the vocational field of Law. My answer is an attempt to give you a realistic way of looking at this career, and I have told you things that most will not tell you about the profession - at first. Be careful, do your research, and have your eyes open wide.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)
If I Want To Be A Criminal Lawyer What Is The Best Major I Should Take In College?
What Are Some Good Colleges For Criminal Lawyers
Major in whatever you'd like. I majored in English with a minor in iPsychology before law school. Law schools accept all majors. They like analytical majors too. Engineering and Math majors do well on law school exams racking up points from being able to follow rules and formulas closely. English and Writing or Literature and Creative Writing would all be great practice. It all depends on how you look at things. You should do what you enjoy though. Having any particular major will not hinder your success as a Criminal attorney. Everyone starts on equal footing the first day of law school, and previous knowledge from undergrad is usually irrelevant to the study of law. In fact, those who have paralegal backgrounds typically do not do well at all in law school. I know a few that dropped out after showing up believing they had superior knowledge to the other law students. Political Science really doesn't help from what I've seen. ANd Criminal Justice majors aren't at an advantage, as law school is where you learn the law. I always thought that it was silly to ajoe in Criminal Justice for that purpose (unless a person really wants to learn about it).
Sociology would be good too, as it deals with social issues. Lawyers like that. Also, if you intern with a criminal attorney (a local law office/law firm, solo practitioner, or prosecuting agency) that would give you great experience on the front end. Try to do alot of extra-curricular activites and interesting community service activities too. The law school admissions reps will love that. Having the "right" major is only one pieve of the pie."
How Do I Get Legal Representation For Issues At Work?
If you belong to a union, they will represent you.
If you do not belong to a lawyer, you need to get your own legal representation. Either hire a lawyer or contact the legal aid society local to you to see if you can get pro bono assistance.
