Most people do not think about choosing a law firm until they are in desperate need. The legal difficulty might be personal, like family law, for a breakup or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust attorney. It may be a felony case you want to be defended on. Businesses need to have lawyers as well, whether or not they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or possibly unfounded business methods. Tax lawyers are also effective while dealing with government difficulties. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A huge, full service law firm has a number of lawyers with diverse areas of experience, so depending on your individual legal issue, you can promptly hold on to the finest legal professional to satisfy your up-to-date need without having to begin your search each time you need legal support.It is most effective to find a legal professional you can believe in. You need one with a good track record, who ishonest, effective, and wins cases. You would like to have trust that they will represent you properly and bill you reasonably for their products and services. Quite often a reference from a friend or business affiliate can be beneficial, having said that you should hold your options open and examine all the firms accessible, for the reason that when you need legal help, you need it immediately and you would like the very best you can afford to pay for.

Attention Any And All Employment Lawyers...Please Read
Ok...So Yesterday I Went To My Classroom (I Am A Teacher) To Clean Out My Books, Personal Items, Educational Materials Etc. I Was Leaving On Good Terms. I Was Just Going To Take Another Position In Another School Doing Something Else. When I Got To School My Principal Went Through All Of My Desk Drawers Taking Personal Records That Were Just Anecdotal In Nature. There Wasnt Anything Damaging To My Knowledge But I Dont Remember Every Scrap That Was In There. I Had A Few Important Records Of Parent Phone Calls, My Principal And I's Conversations And Things. She Admitted To Shredding What She Wanted. Can She Do That? Isnt There Any Privacy Laws That Would Protect My Personal Things. I Feel Very Very Betrayed. Like I Said, She And I Had A Good Relationship And I Am Shocked She Would Do This. She Said She Was Getting It Ready For The New Teacher But She Never Went In Anything Else Like My Bookshelves Or File Cabinets. It Would Appear She Was Looking For Information. Oh And She Denied A Request I Had Because I Got Pregnant And I Had Records On That. So It Was Like She Took Things That Could Be Damaging To Her. Any Answers Would Be Awesome!
Now you've learned three of the big rules in business -
1) take ALL your personal stuff home before you give your notice
2) never ever leave notes about your employment, problems with the boss or coworkers, disciplinary actions, etc., at work - take them home and keep them in a safe place
3) Never ever use an employer's computers to make notes, store notes, or email notes to yourself. Everything you do can be retrieved, and anything you do on an employer's computer technically belongs to the employer.
By the way, you don't mention where you are. If you're in the UK or Canada or Australia, the answers you need may be very different than if you're in the US. So if you would edit your question to add that detail, it would help.
As for whether or not the principal can go through your personal notes that were in your desk, that's definitely something to be answered by an attorney who practices in your state. It isn't uncommon to have an employee pack their things under the supervision of a security guard or someone in management with the employer, but extensive searches of personal notes aren't common unless the employee worked with highly sensitive or proprietary data/systems/information.
So My Boyfriends 17, Im 15. Weve Been Together 4 Months Now But His Parents Say We Need To Break Up Because He'Ll Be 18 Soon And If We Have Sex I Could Potentially Put Him In Jail. Is There Any Type Of Legal Document I Could Get To Either Say We Wont Have Sex Or If We Do I Wont Sue?
Any Ideas Of How We Could Convince His Parents Would Be Awesome Too :)
The decision whether or not sex would be legal is not yours or anyone else's to make. It is the state's. If you have sex in violation of law where you live, the state would prosecute either your boyfriend or both of you if the activity were reported. For instance, the age of consent in Arizona is 18. If you two have sex, you could both be prosecuted. You won't be "legal" in most states until you reach the age of 16 at minimum, although again, the age may be higher in your state. Your parents and his parents cannot absolve that with any type of document unless they sign something giving you permission to marry and you actually do get married.
How Do I Hire A Criminal Lawyer?
First, find one. An excellent resource to use for this is www.avvo.com or www.lawyers.com.
After you've found one, do your research. Most of the information you need will be on that site. Look at rates of success and costs, as well as their professional reputations and practice distribution.
Finally, contact the lawyer for a consultation. Speak with more than one if possible, and get a feel for how they operate. Most important is whether or not your lawyer presents himself or herself well, and whether or not you feel comfortable placing your interests in their hands.
Don't worry about speaking to too many lawyers. All lawyer discussions are considered privileged, which means it cannot be disclosed in a court of law. Be sure to confirm this before your conversation if you feel nervous about it, but it is protected by US law.

You bring your complaint to the law society, the local outfit that represents the public interest in a dispute with an atty. Each state has one. Some refer to it as a bar association, others the law society. Usually there is a link for 'Public' and/or 'Complaints Against Attorney.' Keep it much shorter than you have here - something like:
I'm confused by the conduct of my atty (name/contact info) with whom I signed a retainer agmt sealed with a payment of $xxx.00 as consideration to represent me in a criminal matter. Frankly, he seems unfamiliar with court procedures - paperwork at court is often incomplete - and, perhaps more disturbing, he is unwilling to meet with me to discuss my case despite repeated efforts on my part both by phone and in person. On several occasions, police have arrived at my home with warrants over what they claim to be missed court dates but the dates were never even entered on the court calendar. On one occasion, atty even failed to appear in court on my behalf. I'm now concerned that I may face a stiffer penalty over atty's inattention, and I no longer have the funds available to find alternate counsel. My next court date is (date) ... I think.
Thank you for your kind and prompt attention to this matter.
E-mail it ASAP and be prepared to support your claims with any documentation you have, i.e. retainer agmt, anything cops left, etc.
Need Help To Find A Free Criminal Probono Lawyer In Cali?
I Need To Find A Criminal Probono Lawyer And Fast I Dont Have Mney To Pay For One But If Everthing Goes Good I Will So Does Any One Knows A Free Lawyer
First, pro bono lawyers are free. asking for a "free pro bono" lawyer is like saying "ATM machine" or "PIN number". It's redundant ("ATM" already has "Machine" in it and "PIN" already has "Number" in it, so it doesn't make sense to say these words again).
And if you can't afford a lawyer, a public defender will be appointed to you by the courts. It will not cost you anything. They are not pro bono, but they are free.
