I Need Help. Thanks.
I can't tell you what your rights are - you need a lawyer for that. But you should qualify for legal aid if you have little or no income, and you should talk to your local legal aid agency ASAP!
I can't give you a specific contact for legal aid because I don't know what part of Florida you live in. There are legal aid offices in most areas, and most of them handle divorce cases. The first source below is the Florida State Courts' list of legal aid agencies, with links to their websites. Each agency's website will have contact info, explanation of the application process, and the types of cases it handles. Click the links to find which agency has an office near you; there may be more than one.
The second source below is the directory for the Florida State Courts Family Law Self-Help Centers, where you can get information about your rights and additional resources that can help you.
I found all of this information at the third source, CourtReference Florida Courts Guide. It has contact information for all courts by county, with links to court websites. Many counties have dedicated Family Courts, with websites that offer self-help information about your rights, court procedure, etc.
The fourth source is CourtReference's Florida Self-Help page; click the links to "Florida Simplified Divorce" and "Florida Family Law Handbook" near the top of the list, or scroll down to your county and click one of the links that includes "family law" or "divorce" in its description.
The last source is CourtReference's Florida Legal Aid page, where you can find more links to legal aid agencies.
My Friend Is A Doctor And Needs A Defense Lawyer In A Medical Malpractice Case Please?
Any Good Suggestions In California Please?
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle Medical Malpractice Defense.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge (per hour)?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)

Power Of Attorney?
My Friend Has An Aunt Who Lives With Her Father. The Aunt'S Daughter, Who Lives In Another State Has Power Of Attorney Over Her Mother. Her Mother Is Still Able To Make Decisions On Her Own.
My Friend Wants To Know If She Can Get Power Of Attorney To Take The Aunt To Doctors' Appts, Etc., As The Aunt Has A Brain Tumor Now.
She Is Wondering Which Is Best:
(1) To Get Power Of Attorney And Look After The Aunt
(2) To Get The Daughter To Take Her Mother Home ( Don'T Know If The Daughter Will Do This As The Daughter Has Little Communication With The Mother)
She Would Like What Is In Best Interest Of Aunt, But Still She Wants To Legally Protect Herself If Something Should Happen, As I Have Stated That The Daughter May Have Legal Claim To Sue Her If Something Should Happen To Her Mother, Since My Friend Has No Legal Documentation To Care For This Individual.
Thanks In Advance!!!!
easy, see an attorney. The POA isn't worth the paper its written on IF that person is not takeing care of the party in question.
However, it will take a court hearing to undo the situation and set it right and i would seek advice from an attorney practiceing family law.
Maybe this will help:
A power of attorney (POA) or letter of attorney in common law systems or mandate in civil law systems is an authorization to act on someone else's behalf in a legal or business matter. The person authorizing the other to act is the principal or granter (of the power), and the one authorized to act is the agent or attorney-in-fact.

3 Equal dignity rule

5 Power of attorney in finance
6 UK Law
7 Irish Law
8 Russian Law

As an agent, an attorney-in-fact is a fiduciary for the principal, so the law requires an attorney-in-fact to be completely honest with and loyal to the principal in their dealings with each other. If the attorney-in-fact is being paid to act for the principal, the contract is usually separate from the power of attorney itself, so if that contract is in writing, it is a separate document, kept private between them, whereas the power of attorney is intended to be shown to various other people.
In the context of the unincorporated reciprocal inter-insurance exchange (URIE) the attorney-in-fact is a stakeholder/trustee who takes custody of the subscriber funds placed on deposit with him, and then uses those funds to pay insurance claims. When all the claims are paid, the attorney-in-fact then returns the leftover funds to the subscribers.
The term attorney-in-fact should not be confused with the term attorney at law. An attorney-at-law in the United States is a lawyer—someone licensed to practice law in a particular jurisdiction. In most other common-law jurisdictions lawyers are not called attorneys, and in those jurisdictions the term "attorney" generally refers to either attorneys-in-fact or lawyers from the United States.
 Oral and written powers of attorney
A power of attorney may be oral and whether witnessed or not, will hold up in court, same as if it were in writing. For some purposes, the law requires a power of attorney to be in writing. Many institutions, such as hospitals, banks and, in the United States, the Internal Revenue Service, require a power of attorney to be in writing before they will honor it, and they will usually keep an original copy for their records. In some countries, like Portugal, it can be also served an Electronic Power of Attorney since December 2007.
 Equal dignity rule
The equal dignity rule is a principle of law that requires an authorization for someone performing certain acts for another person to have been appointed with the same formality as required for the act the representative is going to perform. This means, for example, that if a principal authorizes someone to sell the principal's house or other real property, and the law requires a contract for the sale of real property to be in writing (which is required under the "Statute of Frauds" in most U.S. jurisdictions), then the authorization for the other person to sign the sales contract and deed must be in writing too.
 Types of powers of attorney
A power of attorney may be special or limited to one specified act or type of act, or it may be general, and whatever it defines as its scope is what a court will enforce as being its scope. (It may also be limited as to time.) Under the common law, a power of attorney becomes ineffective if its grantor dies or becomes "incapacitated," meaning unable to grant such a power, because of physical injury or mental illness, for example, unless the grantor (or principal) specifies that the power of attorney will continue to be effective even if the grantor becomes incapacitated (but any such power ends when the grantor dies). This type of power of attorney is called a durable power of attorney.
In some jurisdictions, a durable power of attorney can also be a "Health Care Power of Attorney", an advance directive which empowers the attorney-in-fact (proxy) to make health-care decisions for the grantor, up to and including terminating care and "pulling the plug" on machines keeping a critically and terminally ill patient alive. Health care decisions include the power to consent, refuse consent or withdraw consent to any type of medical care, treatment, service or procedure. A living will is a written statement of a person's health care and medical wishes but does not appoint another person to make health care decisions.  New York State has enacted a Health Care Proxy law that requires a separate document be prepared appointing one as your health care agent.
People with mental illness may prepare Psychiatric Advance Directives (PADs in some U.S. states) or Ulysses contracts as they are called in Canada. Ulysses contracts are powers of attorney that enable a patient to dictate preferences for care before becoming incapacitated by recurring mental illness. Although they are not used very often, there is speculation in some of the academic literature as to whether or not these advance directives are empowering for people with mental illness (Journal of Ethics in Mental Health 2006-1).
In some U.S. states and other jurisdictions it is possible to grant a springing power of attorney;i.e., a power that only takes effect after the incapacity of the grantor or some other definite future act or circumstance. After such incapacitation the power is identical to a durable power, but cannot be invoked before the incapacity. This may be used to allow a spouse or family member to manage the grantor's affairs in case illness or injury makes the grantor unable to act, while retaining the power for without an attorney-in-fact before the incapacity occurs. If a springing power is used, care should be given to specifying exactly how and when the power springs into effect. As the result of privacy legislation in the U.S., medical doctors will often not reveal information relating to capacity of the principal unless the power of attorney specifically authorizes them to do so.
Unless the power of attorney has been made irrevocable (by its own terms or by some legal principle), the grantor may revoke the power of attorney by telling the attorney-in-fact it is revoked; however, if the principal does not inform third parties and it is reasonable for the third parties to rely upon the power of attorney being in force, the principal may still be bound by the acts of the agent, though the agent may also be liable for such unauthorized acts.
Many standardized forms are available for various kinds of powers of attorney, and many organizations provide them for their clients, customers, patients, employees, or members. In some states statutory power of attorney forms are available. Some individuals have used powers of attorney to unscrupulously waste or steal the assets of vulnerable individuals such as the elderly (see elder abuse).
Robert's Rules of Order notes that proxy voting involves granting a power of attorney. The term "proxy" refers to both the power of attorney itself and the person to whom it is granted.
 Power of attorney in finance
In financial situations wherein a principal requests a securities broker to perform extensive investment functions on the principal's behalf, independent of the principal's advice, power of attorney must be formally granted to the broker to trade in the principal's account. This rule also applies to principals who instruct their brokers to perform certain specific trades and principals who trust their brokers to perform certain trades in the principal's best interest.
 UK Law
In English law, anyone with capacity can grant a Power of Attorney. These can be general (i.e. to do anything which can legally be done by an attorney), or relate to a specific act (eg. to sell freehold property).
A normal Power of Attorney however ceases to have effect if the donor loses capacity. If it is the donor's intention for the Power to continue after they have lost capacity, then a "Lasting Power of Attorney" (LPA) should be granted. These came into being in 1st October 2007, and replaced the simpler "Enduring Powers of Attorney" (EPA's) which had previously been used. LPA's were introduced by the government in order to reduce the potential for abuse that was a problem with the EPA system, and also to allow donor's to grant attorneys the power to look after their welfare and not just their finances, which had not been possible under the EPA regime.
The new LPA regime is therefore a lot more complicated and expensive than the old EPA regime, with the average LPA costing in the region of £800 compared to the £100 charge for EPA's.
UK Government Public Guardianship Office - Clear explanation of the process by the office that manages Enduring Powers of Attorney and Lasting Powers of Attorney.
Note: Enduring Power of Attorney was replaced with Lasting Power of Attorney in October 2007
 Irish Law
Irish law allows two types of powers of attorney:
a General Power of Attorney; which ceases as soon as the Donor becomes incapacitated and,
an Enduring Power of Attorney; which takes effect on the incapacity of the donor.

I'M Thinking Of Being A Lawyer For Juveniles What Do You Think I Need To Know First?
Anything You Have To Say Would Really Help Me Out
That it can be rewarding, frustrating, funny and heartbreaking.
Most juvenile cases are of the "knucklehead" variety. They shoplift, they get in fights, they smoke pot at school, etc. These are the cases where you get the chance to work with the kid and the system to get them into diversion programs, community service, etc. and hopefully get them back on track.
But juvenile cases also involve serious crimes committed by seriously screwed up kids or gangbangers. Many times, the best you can do is try to keep them in the juvenile system instead of the adult courts and hope that a few months or years in jail will not turn them into something worse.
If you really care about juveniles, it can really wear on you. So I've seen juvi lawyers who become kind of robotic about it, not really connecting with their client and just working out one plea agreement after the other without a lot of thought about what's best for the kid and family.
A tough job, but one that really needs good caring people.
