How Does One Go About Finding A Good Employment Issue Attorney?
Also Does It Matter If The Plaintiff Works In One State And Lives In A Different State?
The Issue Is Employment Discrimination And/Or Wrongful Termination.
A good source for finding a labor law or employment lawyer would be to contact the Bar association of the state in which the alleged violation occured. The Bar association can also provide free or low cost consultations to even let you know if you have a case.
To the best of my knowledge, it should not matter in what state the plaintiff lives. However, I would think that any litigation would have to occur in the state in which the company is located; thus, you would want an attorney who is licensed (passed the bar) in that state.
I Have A Legal Question...?
If A Report Is Substantiated For Child Abuse And Neglect How Long Does That Stay On The Persons Record? I Am A Mother Trying To Find Childcare And This Lady Has A Substantiated Charge Or Whatever On Her Background Check. Does Something Like That Go Away After A Period Of Time? I Am Of Course Not Taking My Child There But I Am Worried If Other People Were Convicted And It Just Went Away? I Live In Missouri. Does The Record Follow You Everywhere You Go?
These laws differ in all states. Below I have put the laws of your state. There is never ever any assurance a record will not fall through the cracks of the system. Unless you are referred to the person OR you know and trust the person I wouldn't ever place my child in anyone's care. My wife died several years ago and I ate dirt with my son until he was old enough where he could say "Daddy. So and so did (whatever) to me." You have no idea how badly these systems work. I trust city workers as far as I can throw them to do any kind of work.

Right of the Reported Person to Review and Challenge Records

What Exactly Is A Criminal Lawyer?
Like, What Situations Do They Handle? And Could You Give Me An Example Of A Situation That I Would Go Through If I Was A Criminal Lawyer?
Two uses of the phrase. The obvious "lawyer who IS a criminal" is the least common, but the most well known. You don't want to be that.
The more common is actually "criminal defense lawyer", meaning someone who does criminal defense work. In any prosecution in the US, and most other countries with a criminal justice system, there are two lawyers -- the prosecutor, who tries to prove the defendant is guilty, and the defense attorney who represents the defendant.
The goal of a criminal defense attorney, like all attorneys, is to get the best possible outcome for their client. This could include plea bargaining for better sentences or better facilities, getting medical or psychiatric treatment instead of or in addition to prison, or getting the client acquitted on the charges if possible.

What Is The Normal Consequences For The First Dui???
Well, it's not going to be pretty! It depends on which state you live in, but generally speaking, get out your purse, and open it wide, because a DUI, even if it is a first offense, is going to cost you plenty. There will likely be all kinds of fines, fees, and surcharges. Additionally, your car insurance premiums will likely be inflated drastically. In New Jersey, for example, they are inflated for 3 years. When all fines, fees, surcharges, inflated car insurance premiums, and additional transportation costs and other expenses are calculated, as a result of not being permitted to legally drive a car are considered, you might be looking at $10,000 in costs, or more, maybe spread out over several years. Additional penalties could and probably will include loss of your driver's license for several months (maybe 6) and you may be required to attend some sort of communist style "reeducation camp" for a few hours, the purpose of which is to indoctrinate you about the evils of "drinking and driving", and why you ought not to do it ever again. DUI laws are designed to accomplish a couple of things:
1. To bring revenue to your State and local governments - after all, court personnel and police need to eat too, don't you know!
2. The penalties are designed to make your life expensive, inconvenient, and otherwise miserable, in an effort to discourage you from repeating your offense.
If you have not already been convicted of DUI, then I would advise you to consult with a lawyer immediately. It may be possible to successfully plead guilty to a lesser offense such as "reckless driving", which, while this might also be expensive, yet it can still mitigate the damage to you which would result if you are convicted of DUI.
If you have already been convicted of DUI, then you must learn to cope with loss of driver's license. You should then be creative and resourceful as possible. One thing that you should NOT do, if you lose your license, it to just go ahead and drive anyway, with the hope that you won't get caught. If you are caught driving with a revoked license, then you will be in even deeper doo doo. Instead, get yourself a bicycle, because it is faster and easier than walking everywhere, and cheaper than taking a taxi. Pay your fines, surcharges and fees, meet all court ordered requirements, take your lumps, and get on with your life.
