Listed below are three important strategies to understand that you've hired the best lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Type Of Case The law is frequently tricky and therefore requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. If you want an attorney, try to find person who relates to the matter you're facing. Even when a family member or friend recommends you utilize a company they understand, should they don't have got a focus that's similar to your case, keep looking. When your attorney is undoubtedly an expert, especially in the problem you're facing, you understand you've hired the right one. 2. The Lawyer Has A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it may be tough to win a case, particularly if the team helping you has little to no experience.

What Are The Job Positions In A Law Firm?
I Don'T Want A Description Or Anything. I'M Interested In A Job In A Law Firm. I'Ve Seen My Father Keep His Job For 26 Years And He Makes About 55,000 Dollars A Year Or Something. He'S A Word Processor. What Are The Other Lower Positions?
I've worked in both civil litigation and criminal justice law offices.
The size of the firm, how many attorneys are involved, and the type of law they practice all factor into how many and what type of job positions there are. Some of the positions I have seen at firms (under attorney) include legal secretary, paralegal, receptionist, legal transcriptionist, legal assistants, litigation coordinators, human resource managers, accounts receivables/ billing manager, filing clerks, public relations managers, collection managers and collection assistants, office managers, and personal assistants/ receptionists, interns, court runners, process servers (although these usually are from a separate company) but I have seen process servers who belong to the firm. Of course there are varying levels of attorney positions as well.
Income of each job varies depending on experience and training. Some of the best paid positions within a law firm include human resource managers and legal secretaries. As a legal secretary be prepared for long hours, heavy detail-oriented work, and a lot of responsibility. Human resources may be the way to go for you should you enjoy hands-on work and are a team-oriented person. A human resources position will also allow you to take your career outside of law to other fields and companies should you ever grow weary of working in a law office environment.
Good luck in your search.
I Need A Lawyer In Realestate In Regards To Fraud.?
I Have A Friend Who Is In Prison Who Is A Mexican National. His Wife Died A Few Year Back. Nine Days Before She Died Her Daughter Who Is My Friends Stepdaughter. She Had Her Mother Quit-Claim The Property In The Buckeye Area. Now, He Did Not Sign No Quit-Claim Deed Over To Her. Does He Have Any Rights To His Property? Since The Property Was In Both Their Names
He probably owns it all. His status as a "guest of the State" and foreign citizenship has no bearing. If title was held by both of them, vesting can't be changed without both of their signatures. The Quit Claim is invalid, and cannot be enforced. If they resided in a community property state, title passes to him upon her death, after probate. Your friend needs a lawyer.

Family Lawyer Research And Family Law Advice?
Where Can I Get Real Reviews For Family Lawyers And What Not (Particularly Speaking, Albuquerque New Mexico). I'M Trying To Get A Good Lawyer. I Don'T Want Too Expensive, Cuz I Can'T Afford It, And I Dn'T Want To Go Too Cheap And Get The Scraps. What Makes It Worse Is I'M Currently Deployed In Afghanistan, So I Need A Good One To Make Sure I'M Getting What I Want The Best Way Possible. Obviously On Their Own Sites They Will Tell You How Good And Qualified They Are, And The Sites They Ad Themselves On Either Have No Reviews, Or Just One Review, And The One Review Always Seems To Be Conviently Positive About Them. Some Have Like 250 To 500 Dollar Consultation Fees, But Might Be Worth It If They Can Work. But I Don'T See The Difference Between A Lawyer That Does One For Free Or Charges For It. What Factors Do I Look For In A Family Lawyer?
As I Said, I'M In Afghan Going Through A Divorce. I Actually Want Physical Custody (Has Nothing To Do With Child Support, I Just Love My Little Girl To Death). My Wife Has No Job, Not Even A Ged. She'S Not A Bad Mother, Per Say, But I Don'T Know If There'S A Strategy Out There That I Could Use, Or If Its Really A Lost Cause, Especially Being Active Duty Military.
First, check with base legal, i.e., JAG office. This is a good place to start to find out your rights under the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act.
Second, go to the New Mexico State Bar website. See if there are any special certifications for family law attorneys. (For example, if you are a Certified Family Law Specialist in California, you must have so many trials under your belt and have passed a written exam in addition to the state bar exam.) If New Mexico has specializations, you can probably locate the specialists through a link on the website.
Regarding the factors you need to look for in a family law attorney -- tough question. My clients have to like me and trust me with some of their darkest secrets. For example, I don't care if my client has been sleeping around. I just need to know so I am not surprised by the information. If you can't trust your attorney with your secrets, certainly don't trust him/her with your money or kids.
Also, carefully review your attorney's bill every month. Don't be afraid to question the charges. If there is research for some item, find out what it is and why the issue was so different than any of their other cases that the attorney had to do additional research. For example, in your case, I would know enough about the military to not have to do research regarding survivor's benefits.
I do think you are going to have a problem with the physical custody aspect. Be careful not to slam your wife too much. Apparently you two were compatible enough to create a family and you knew she was not educated when you created this family. It is very hard to argue that it is a factor now when it wasn't a factor then.
Best of luck to you.
Considering Pursuing A Career As A Civil Rights Lawyer Specifically For Lgbt Rights?
What College Major Would Be Most Beneficial In Preparing Me For A Career In This Field?
in order to go to law school
You have to go to 4-year college first to get a bachelors(your major does not matter)
Then get preferably all A, s and B, s .. Apply to law school get in choose your concentration as a lawyer as civil rights law. I think in your case you would be doing something like ACLU up hold the freedom of speech kinds of things which plenty of it ties into LGBT rights and what not, but I think your right it is called civil rights law. It could be good for you. However, just remember civil rights law cases(well most) pay peanuts.(not literally it is a figure of speech for dirt cheap meaning you get very little money, but I am positive you knew that figure speech just saying)
Because most people who get there civil rights violated are people who are poor and can't stand up for themselves. And by poor I don't mean down on your luck welcome to the lower end of the middle class. No I mean can only afford a bowl of rice for a family of 4 once a day or so, and that's it.
So you can't possibly force a good amount of money from them. So be careful. Of course if you get into a good lawschool(ucla would be perfect for you ranked number 16 nationally out of all colleges in America, including their law program) they are smack-dab in the middle of holly wood where all the pro-gay actors and actress's and people general are usually from there so you have a huge list of clienteles right there and supporters. Play your cards right and you could even become the next Gloria all red.
I plan on going to law school too. However, for entertainment and corporate law but UCLA is one of my top choices for law school.
Power Of Attorney And Divorce?
I Want A Divorce But My Ex Will Not Give Me His Address, Instead He Said He Is Going To Give Power Of Attorney To His Father So He Can Sign Divorce Papers. Can He Even Do That? The Divorce Is Uncontested And We Have Been Separated For 5 Years.
A person can give power of attorney to whomever they want. But this means that person must be trustworthy not to use that power for harm to the first person. Also that means the person given power of attorney makes all legal decisions until the POA is revoked or withdrawn - so it is weird that a capable functioning adult would give their POA to another person.

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.
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.) 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..................
