Finding A Skilled Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will recognize that there are many lawyers in your area that advertise they focus on your form of case. This could make the whole process of finding one with a great deal of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below it will be easy to narrow down your search to the right one in very little time. Step one is to make a selection of the lawyers that are listed in your neighborhood specializing in your position. While you are making this list you need to only include those that you may have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down through taking a little while evaluating their webpage. There you should certainly find the amount of years they are practicing and a few general details about their success rates. At this time your list should have shrunken further to those that you just felt had professional websites and an appropriate level of experience. You must then spend some time to check out independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure you see the reviews instead of just depending on their overall rating. The information from the reviews provides you with an idea of the direction they communicate with their clientele and the time they invest into each case they are taking care of. Finally, you will want to meet up with at least the past three lawyers that have the credentials you would like. This will provide you with enough time to genuinely evaluate how interested they can be in representing your case. It really is important to follow every one of these steps to ensure that you find a person which includes the right level of experience to get you the ideal outcome.

Florida Real-Estate/Rental Laws?
I Was In An Abusive Relationship, But Do Not Have Documentation To Prove It. I Have Moved Out Of The Apartment I Shared With My Husband. Both Our Names Were On The Lease. I Have Been Told There Is A Law To Protect Abused Men/Women That Allows One Party To Sign Off The Lease Without The Other Persons Consent. Is This True?
If you need your husband removed because he is abusive, try to get an Order of Protection from the courts. If you need to leave your place, ask your landlord to end your lease, pay your landlord what you owe, and notify your husband that you are leaving. There are laws that support this, but I can't find them specifically for Florida.
Think about calling the Florida Violence hotline at 1-800-500-1119. They'll be able to help you get out and be safe. Good luck.
"...several states, including Oregon, Washington, Colorado, North Carolina and Texas, have recognized an exception to this rule and have given domestic violence victims an early termination right. Tenants who participate in federal Section 8 and public housing programs also have this right, under the Violence Against Women Act of 1994. These laws typically include some safeguards for landlords, such as requiring tenants to verify their status as domestic violence victims (by providing a copy of a police report or restraining order, for example), insisting that tenants submit their requests in writing (sometimes within a specified time after the reported violence), and specifying that remaining tenants on the lease are still bound by its terms.
Landlords whose states have not passed early termination laws for domestic violence victims shouldn't automatically conclude that they have no reason to accommodate a request from a tenant in this situation. If the landlord knows (or should realize, given the circumstances) that the tenant is in danger, in most states the landlord must take reasonable steps to protect this tenant from harm. A reasonable step would include letting the tenant move away and excusing her from any future responsibility for rent (as you note, without this forgiveness, in practical terms the tenant simply can't move). If the landlord refuses to take reasonable steps, and the tenant is injured in another incident of violence, the landlord could end up at least partially legally responsible."
Elite Personal Injury Law Firms, Criminal Defense Firms, Litigation Firms-Law Firms In General!?
Are There Any Elite/Prestigious Personal Injury, Or Criminal Defense Law Firms? How About Civil Litigation [Like, Suing People For, I Don'T Know...Malpractice? Someone Dies In A Factory Explosion?] I'M More Concerned About The First Two Though, Especially Criminal Litigation...Any Firms In New York? California? Canada? Please Make Sure That They Aren'T Mediocre Firms And Are Prestigious [And High Paying]. I'M Just Curious, So Please Don'T Make Spiteful Remarks Like 'Oh, You Only Care About Prestige?' Thanks In Advance.
That depends upon your definition of "elite" and "prestigious", doesn't it?
Alston & Bird, Clifford Chance, McGuireWoods, Frankfurt Kurnit, and Skadden Arps come quickly to mind...but for different reasons.
Do I Have A Case For The Labor Board/Attorney?
Here Is What Happened To Me During My Employment:
I Was Told By The Owner That They Where Trying To Get Rid Of An Employee. The Owner Asked That I Go With The Employee To All Of There Meetings, Walk Throughs And Forward All Emails To The Owner Via Blind Them. During This Time The Owner Told Me To Be Careful Because The Employee They Had Asked Me To Watch Was Lying To The Owner By Saying I Wanted To Quite And That I Wasn'T Going To Be A Long Term Employee. The Employee In Question Continued To Spread Rumors And Was Jeopardizing My Job.
The Relationship Between The Owner And The Coworker In The Past Was What Other Coworkers Saw As A Romantic Relationship. The Owner And The Employee Would Hang Out, Go To Clubs, Bars And Meetings Together. I Was Even Told By The Owner That He Was Bought Tires For His Car, All Medical Bills Paid For, Presents For His Kid And Was Even Bought Cloths Among Other Things.
The Whole Office Was Now Caught Up In This Mess. The Owner Would Rant And Rave Using Foul Language To Describe Her Mood And Her Frustration With Everyone. On More Than One Occasion I Was Told To &Quot;Shut The F Up&Quot;. I Was Even Told If I Would Quite, She Would Destroy My Reputation And Make It Impossible For Me To Work In The Industry Again.
On Another Occasion, I Was Asked To Go In The Owners Office And Was Told The Following:
My Energy Level Was To High And To Bring It Down.
I Dont Listen.
When I Has Asked About Getting Further Feed Back And Examples Of What I Was Doing Wrong, I Was Told &Quot;I Cant Think Of Anything But That'S What I Remember&Quot;.
When The Employee Was Finally Terminated, The Attitude With Me Changed. The Owner No Longer Associated Themselves With Me And Tried The Best They Could To Distance Themselves From Me.
I Asked On Several Occasions If I Was Improving And What I Could Do To Move Forward. I Was Told I Was Doing Fine.
During My Employment I Was Never Properly Trained, No Goals Where Made Clear And Had No Direction.
As A Result, 3 Business Days From My Third Month There I Was Let Go. I Was Told &Quot;I Wasn'T A Good Match For The Company&Quot;. I Asked For Specifics And Was Told I Didn'T Listen. I Was Told &Quot; That'S Just Something I Can Remember&Quot;.
So Over All With All This.....I Felt I Was Hired Just To Help Get Someone Fired. I Had No Clear Goals, No Goal Milestones And No Direction. From Verbal Abuse To Told That If I Quite The Owner Would Make It So I Couldn'T Work In The Industry Again.
I Dont Know If I Have A Case...Being That I'M In California...Employers Can Fire With Out Warning.
A case for what? The labor board will enforce labor laws but there is no law that was violated as long as you got paid for the work you did. No law requires training, goals, or progressive discipline. If you want to work for an employer that has none of those, you are free to do so.
Service Dog Laws In Oregon?
I Am Wondering How To Get A Dog Certified As A Service Dog In Oregon. Can They Be Certified To Help With Social Anxiety? I Can'T Bring Myself To To Out Of The House Alone To Even Go To The Store And The Only Way To Go Would Be To Bring My Dog With Me. The Problem Is That I Would Need To Use Public Transport In The Place I Might Be Moving And Only Service Dogs Are Allowed To Ride With Their Owners.
Trained service dogs are the only ones that are allowed to go anywhere with the handler. They are trained to help with a disability.
Therapy dogs are dogs that go into hospitals, nursing homes and other places to provide some comfort to people who need it. These dogs get special permission to go to these places, but are not allowed in other public places such as malls or restaurants. They are pets who get to visit people, usually for not more than a couple hours a month.
If you have severe anxiety, then you need to talk with your doctor about the possibility of getting a service dog. There are organizations that do train dogs to help in social situations, but there are long waits and there can be costs to it.
Even if a pet is comforting to you, they might not be good as a service dog. Service dogs need to be calm in public, ignore people, distractions and other dogs. It takes a lot of training and socialization for a dog to be a service dog.
Family Court Info Needed?
I Recently Separated With The Father Of My Son. We Lived Together And Tried To Make It Work But I Cheated On Him With Someone I Dated Years Ago. Things Were Not Going Well With The Father Of My Son Anyways. I Have Been Dating This New Man For About 1 Week Now. He Kicked Me And My Son Out The Day He Learned About It.
The Father Of My Son Wants To Take Me To Court To Prove That The Separation Was My Fault And That It'S An Healthy Environment For Our Son. I Only Invite My Old-New Boyfriend In My Apartment When My Son Is Not Home. We Live The Equivalent Of A Long Distance Relationship. Otherwise, I'M A Single Mom And I'M Only In A Relationship When My Son Is At My Parents, My Ex In-Laws And His Dad.
My Ex And Father Of My Son Told Me He Talked To A Lawyer And That They Might Ask My Current Boyfriend To Provide Information About Our Relationship. When It Started, Show Phone Records And Facebook Logs.
Is He Right About That? Is He Even Allowed To? He Wants Full Custody And He Told Me I'M Unfit To Be A Mom, That I Provide An Unfamiliar Environment To My Son.
The above answers are kind of sort of wrong. The correct answer is....
Get a lawyer. If your talking child support and visitation, then you don't need a lawyer. But for a custody battle, your going to need a lawyer.
The first thing you want to talk to your lawyer about is payment. In some states you can get the father to pay your legal bills. You might also be able to make a payment plan. I'm sure money is tight, but this is important.
Without a lawyer, almost anything can happen. With a lawyer, it's almost guaranteed that you'll get custody. Your the mother, and your the current care taker, which gives you a big plus in court. The only way the father could get custody is if he had real proof of very serious abuse. A relationship with someone else doesn't count as child abuse.
Don't give him any information. In any court case you never give out any information until you've cleared it with your lawyer. Nothing. Not even the time of day.
The judge will give you custody and child support, and he'll get visitation. It's all very standard, so don't worry about it.
I'm sure the judge will ask for dna test, but if he doesn't, then I suggest that you ask for one. It's not about how certain YOU are, it's about how certain the father is. You don't want that 10 years from now he's wondering about it.
Wendy's right. He hasn't seen a lawyer. No decent lawyer would start asking for proof of any relationship. The father is just playing you. Getting you all upset.
Should I Go Ahead And Just Give Up And Start Seeking Legal Advice?
I'Ve Posted About My Marrital Problems Before, But Things Are Only Getting Worse. Let Me Give You Some Background And Then Finish My Question At The End. I Really Need Some Advice. And I Don'T Need Children Responding Or Nonserious Sarcastic Responses Please. This Is A Very Serious Situation For Me.
I'Ve Been Wondering For Awhile If I'M Just Being Too Nice To My Husband. I'M Being Perfectly Honest And Giving The Full Scenario. My Husband And I Have Been Married For Six Years And Together Over 7. We Have One Precious Child. I Was A Stay At Home Mom For 2.5 Years And He Works Really Hard Outside The Home. I Already Have One Degree, But Am Going Back To School To Take It A Little Further Now. I Will Have My Bsn Soon, Which Is Very Demanding. I Go To School 4 Days A Week And Work A Part-Time Job On The Weekends. We Live Fairly Nicely And I Don'T Want Or Need For Much. I Am Highly Educated, But Have Decided To Stay Home With Our Son As Much As Possible, And I Did For My Pregnancy And The First 2.5 Years Of Our Son'S Life. I Clean The House Top To Bottom Once A Week, Do All The Laundry, Iron My Husband'S Clothes, Lay His Clothes Out At Night Before Bed So He Has Them Ready In The Morning, Have A Home Cooked Dinner On The Table Every Night At 6:30 (Except For Fridays), Take Care Of All The Finances, Take Care Of The Vehicles, Arrange For The Yard To Be Taken Care Of, Take Care Of Our Two Dogs, Keep Myself Fit And Nice Looking, Give Him Sex Just About Everytime He Wants It, Pack His Lunch Every Night, And I Get Up At 4 Every Morning With Him And Make His Breakfast. Plus, I Study Every Evening And Work 13 Hours At The Local Hospital For Rotations On Wednesday.
I Would Not Have A Problem With This At All If I Felt Appreciated, But He Doesn'T. He Does Not Say Thank You And Does Nothing Special For Me Ever. In The Six Years We'Ve Been Married I'Ve Never Even Had An Orgasm From Him...I Have To Please Myself. I Would Never Ever Cheat On Him, So I Just Find Ways To Pleasure Myself. He'S Not Abusive Or Anything, But I Just Feel Neglected.
We Have Gone To Marriage Counseling, Sex Therapy, Discussed This Many Many Times, And Nothing Gets Better. In Fact, It'S Getting Worse.
I Feel Like He Brings Out The Worst In Me And I'M Always Irritated Now. I Have Zero Depression Or Anxiety By The Way. I'M Just At My Witts End. I Can'T Give Or Do Anymore. The Stress Is Starting To Eat Away At My Body Too. The Doctors Have Told Me This For The Past Two Years Too. Because Of All Of The Demands, I Don'T Get Much Sleep And I'M Under Constant Stress. I'M Starting To Lose Patches Of My Hair, Have Stomach Ulcers, Cystic Acne, And Heart Problems. I'Ve Discussed This With My Husband And He Shows No Concern. As A Matter Of Fact, I Was Hospitalized Back In April For A Week And He Never Once Came To See Me At The Hospital. I Had To Drive Myself Home Actually. I Have Pretty Major Surgery Too, But He Never Came Up There.
He Has Also Started Fighting, Professionally, Just Within The Last Two Years. So, He Drives To Work First Thing In The Mornings, An Hour Away, Then When He Gets Off Work, He Goes And Trains. He Doesn'T Get Home Until 9 At Night Almost Every Evening. I Feel Like A Single Parent. He Has Only Given Our 3 Year Old Son 3 Or 4 Baths In His Whole Life. He Is Almost Never Home.
Oh! And To Top It Off, We Have Slept In Seperate Beds For Over A Year. I Have Tried And Tried And Tried To Get Him To Change And Be More Of A Family Man And A Partner, But Nothing Changes. He Just Doesn'T Seem To Understand He Has A Wife And Child At Home.
At Any Rate, Without Going On And On (Because I Could), I'M Wondering If I Should Go Ahead And Seek Legal Advice And Start My Case Against Him? I Have Put This Off For So Long Because Of Our Son, But I'M Beginning To Realize My Husband Is Never Home Anyway And I Don'T Want Our Son Thinking That This Is What Marriage Is All About. Plus, I Hate How He Sees Us Arguing And How My Husband Talks Down To Me. I Don'T Want Him Thinking That'S How To Treat Someone You Love.
The Thing Is, I Can'T Go To School Full Time And Afford This House And All Of Our Bills. So, I'M Going To Have To Wait To Do The Divorce Completely Until After I Graduate In A Year. But, I Know It Is Going To Be A Fight. So, Should I Go Ahead And Start Speaking With An Attorney Now?
And, For Those Of You Who Think I'M Exagerating About What I Do For Him, Or About The Situation In General, I'M Not. I'M Being 100% Honest. I Have No Reason To Lie To Anyone On Here. I Don'T Even Know Any Of You.
I Was Raised That You Take Care Of Your Husband No Matter What, Good Ol' Southern Girl. My Parents Have Been Married 30 Years And My Grandparents Over 50. I Took My Vows To Heart And Never Thought I'D Ever Be Divorced. I Just Can'T Continue At This Rate.
And For Those Of You Wondering If I Have Told Him What I Want And Need Pertaining To Sexual Needs, I Have...Many Times. He Truly Does Not Care That I Don'T Get Of
I am so sorry. I've been there,too.Start documenting everything.Talk to a lawyer. Try to find a legal aid clinic (usually associated w/ a Law school or University) in your area. Your divorce will cost you. Also, start socking away as much money as possible.Find out what all your joint assets are.During this time, any money that you might possibly inherit, put in an account marked 'separate property', so he can't touch it.You also might consider hiring a P.I. to tail him for a week or so, just to make sure there isn't someone else in the picture. Also,get a background check on him.I was w/ my ex for 9 years; we even owned a business together, and I was clueless that he was cheating on me w/ hookers until I discovered that he was arrested one night when I was working late.I wonder what his family is like. Can you talk to anyone in his family? What about your family & friends? Get as much moral support as you can.Take some time for yourself. Get in a baby sitting co-op or a Mother's Day out program, and spend some time alone or w/ your friends. You may change your mind about him; he may shape up, but it's better to be prepared in case he doesn't. Good luck!
