What Is The Title Name Of An Attorney That Handles Foreclosures?
Real estate attorney.
In some states a foreclosure is really a trustee sale and a trustee will handle the process. Many trustees are attorneys.
The easiest way to know who handles the bulk of the deals in your area is to look at the Notices Of Default (NOD) in your county. Each notice will have a contact person for that NOD. Those are the people who are handling the transactions in that area. If a name comes up a lot then you know they handle most of the business.
In California Does A Person Have To Pay Taxes On A (Physical) Personal Injury Settlement?
I'M Not Sure What A 1099 Form Is Or If And When I Will Have To File It For My (Physical Personal Injury) Settlement. Any Info Or Input Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
No, CA conforms to Federal law in this area... compensatory damage money for personal injury is not taxable income. However, punitive damages and lost wages ARE income for both Fed & CA
You should not send a 1099, as that is required of payers, not payees. If you do receive a 1099misc, the amount should be in box 3 NOT box 7. You then show it on 1040 line 21 and then deduct the same amount from AGI on line 36.
Any lost wages should be reported by the payer on form W2 with deductions for Social Sec. & Medicare.

I Have Finally Decided To File For Bankruptcy. Does Anyone Know Of A Good Attorney In The Orlando Area That Will Help Me And Not Contribute To My Problems
Check the website of the National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA). They have a directory of NACBA members in all states.
Your attorney should ALWAYS help you and not contribute to your problems. Your attorney is YOUR advocate. It is your attorney's job to be on your side in legal matters. If your attorney is not doing this, get a different attorney.

How To Be A Lawyer (Lawyers Please)?
I Want To Become A Lawyer And Have Some Questions. I Know There Is 4Years Of College And 3 Years Of Law School.
Is The Lsat And The Bar Exam Reasonable Tests Like The Sat? Or Is It Very Hard. I Mean Is It A Test That Can Be Passed If You Study Or Is It A Test That Even If You Study, A Hard Test To Pass.
I Also Hear The Job Competition Is Pretty High? So If I Was To Become A Lawyer Would Finding A Job Be Hard And Difficult?
I Hear Lawyers Make About 70,000 To 150,000 A Year. Is This True?
The Most Important Question Is Employment. How To Be Employed After Becoming A Lawyer
The LSAT is like the SAT; multiple choice, with a few different types of questions. Standardized exam, fairly easy.
The Bar Exam for each state differs; however, each state does have a 100 question multi-state exam based upon the core subjects of Torts, Contracts, Criminal Law/Criminal Procedure, Civil Procedure (Federal), Evidence, and Property (?). The exam tests you on nuances of the areas of law; the best way of answering is to eliminate the bad choices, leaving the best choice.
There are also essay exams covering those, and other subjects; differing on jurisdiction, such as Corporations, Community Property.
There is also a Performance Examination, essay style, in which you are directed to address an issue in a memo to a partner, letter to the client, et al, with research info, such as case law and statutes which you must use, in providing your answer.
Tougher exam in some states more than others; in California, the exam takes 3 days; in most other states, only 2 or even only 1.
Competition is very high in California, New York, and any other big city; however, there are less desired (bad term!) areas of law which always need attorneys, such as family law, workers compensation law, labor law, et al. Trial attorneys get the big bucks, but you can make a good living finding a niche area of law.
As far as spectrum of pay, most lawyers in California, and probably any other big city make between $50,000 -- $200,000; smaller city firms generally pay less.
If you have a science-based undergraduate degree, such as engineering or chemistry, you should obtain your LLM in intellectual property and get into Copyright/Patten/Trademark Law. This area of law really pays the big bucks.
BTW, if you embark on this journey, say good by to your significant other. Most law students end their relations during law school, due to the long hours and stress. Also, strange things occasionally occur after study group sessions break up.
Unless you graduate from a top-tier law school, expect your first job to be a dud; dud pay, dud bosses, slave labor. But, you need the experience to build up your credibility, as it is known as a "practice."
