Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will find that there are countless lawyers in the area that advertise they specialize in your sort of case. This could make the entire process of finding one with quite a lot of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the following you will be able to narrow down your quest off to the right one in almost no time. The initial step is to make a selection of the lawyers which can be listed in your town that specialize in your circumstances. When you are making this list you need to only include those you have an effective vibe about according to their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down by using a bit of time evaluating their website. There you will be able to find just how many years they have been practicing and some general information about their success rates. At this time your list ought to have shrunken further to the people which you felt had professional websites along with an appropriate volume of experience. You must then take the time to search for independent reviews of every attorney. Be sure to browse the reviews instead of just depending on their overall rating. The info inside the reviews will give you a solid idea of how they connect to the clientele and how much time they invest into each case they are focusing on. Finally, you should talk with at least the final three lawyers which have the credentials you would like. This gives you time to really evaluate how interested these are in representing your case. It is actually vital that you follow most of these steps to ensure that you find a person that has the best degree of experience to help you get the ideal outcome.

My advice is to get a Life Events Legal Plan from Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. With this you will be able to:
-Ask a Lawyer any question you need a legal answer to, you can ask as many questions as you want. No Limit.
-While talking with you if the Lawyer feels a letter or phone call made by them on your behalf will help, they will do that.
-They will review and advise you on any contract or document. (buying a home, car, even cell phone. Any document you don't fully understand)
-A Will, get a Standard Will (more complex than a simple will) and have it updated every year as long as you are a member.
-Traffic Ticket help, Get a ticket, get advice on how to handle it or have them go to court for you.
No matter what state you have a question in, we have a law firm that can handle your issue. No matter what area of law, we have it covered. There is so much more included go to the site below to find out more, contact me through that site if you have questions.
With The Legal Shield (part of the above plan) you get 24/365 emergency access to a lawyer if you are in an accident, arrested, detained or questioned. OR if CPS shows up at your doorstep wanting to take your kids away. At a time like that having access to legal advice can be very comforting.
Please look into it.

You have the right for legal representation paid by the court. You can also be represented by legal counsel for the rights of your sister although I do not understand since at the age of 17 in many states you do not have to go to high school anymore or need a guardian (some states not all. Legal age is 18) Unless you are running about too and have other actions against you (example: drugs, prostitution, drunk driving, etc...) I am not a lawyer. Far from it, but you can ask for legal representation (an attorney) to fight for you and your sister. Don't depend on this web site. We are all a bunch of yo-yo's and most do not even do the research.
Are All Law Students/Attorneys A Little Naive When They'Re Getting Into The Field?
Last Week In Class, I Was So Shocked To Hear That A Bad Witness Can Loose A Case. I Guess I Was Shocked Because If There'S A Bad Witness They Can Effect The Whole Outcome Of The Case Even Though The Attorneys And Paralegals Did All Their Prep Work Right.
Law students are a LOT niave when they get into the vocational field of Law. This is mostly the fault of television - the public tends to forget that the majority of what appears on television is FICTION.
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:
**myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of 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 - handling details is a large part of working as a lawyer),
**myth: 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),
**myth: 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/compromise. Many people mistakenly think that being an attorney is about the ability to argue. Actually, a successful attorney is defined by his/her commitment to the PEACEFUL resolution of disputes. Lawyers are actually: mediators, advocates, negotiators, advisors, evaluators, and peaceful intermediaries between clients.),
**myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong),
**myth: 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. There are a FEW attorneys that earn a lot of money - but MOST attorneys just about make a living. Most attorneys do not make as much money as most people think. Also, remember: there are more attorneys than there are available jobs.).
And then, to top it off, attorneys have to keep their client's information confidential. (You cannot use "juicy" tidbits that you have become aware of as fodder for the gossip circles.)
Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
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:
(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 attorneys 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 attorneys 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 a practicing lawyer, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many attorneys. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities. <<<<<
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)
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.

Massachusetts Child Labor Laws?
I Work As A Cna, And Im 17 Years Old, Which Makes Me Under The Child Labor Laws. My Boss Wants Everyone To Work 2 Out Of The 3 Major Holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Or New Years Day. If I Work Two Out Of The Three, Is That Going Against Any Child Labor Law? Am I Supposed To Work Holidays? Please Help! Thank You
Child labor laws anywhere involve age, actual hours worked per week, and rate of pay. They do not have special provision for "holidays"
Child labor laws are designed to allow teens to work for fair wages, but still stay in school to get high shcool diploma.
Most states do have holiday labor laws that require holiday pay for full time workers. If a full time worker works on a holiday they get paid once for the holiday itself and once for the actual hours worked on the holiday. These laws usually only pertain to full time permenant workers 40 hours per week.
I Was Told That A Person Can Not Have Legal Representation In Court For A Stop Sign Violation..True Or False?
My Brother Went To Court And Tried To Defend Himself With Evidence That Would Have Cleared Him But When Asked If You Could Obtain An Attorney The Judge Said No--But Is It Ok Fro A Prosecutor Being There Against Him --I Always Thought That'S Why Lawyers Make Money Defens=Ding Someone...
My understanding is that anyone can have legal representation if they so choose.
The only way I could see the judge saying no is that he thought your brother meant that he wanted a public defender. But I could be wrong. It has happened once or twice.
