Need Help Finding Attorney
I Am Needing Help I Recently Posted A Question About Custody And Fathers Rights I Got A Few Good Responses That Helped Lift My Spirits A Little, If You Responded Thanks...Now I Am Wondering If Anyone Knows How I Can Go About Finding A Attny That Will Work With Someone With Low Income Issues
You could find a court appointed attorney; pro-bono attorney [free; not court appointed]; or hire an attorney with first discussing terms of repayment; possibly financing fees; maybe they would reduce their fee according to your income.
Ask questions first.

I Have Spoken To 2 Different Attorneys Concerning The Death Of My Son At The Local Hospital. And Both Say There Is A Good Chance Of A Case, But Both Decline To Pursue. Should I Get A 3Rd And Final Opinion? Also The Attorneys I Spoke To Are Not In The Same Town As I Am.
If you ask enough atty's sooner or later you'll find one greedy enough to take your money, case or not.
Sorry for your situation, but I'd walk away from suing.
Are The No. Of Jobs In This Field On The Way Up??
The legal profession is taking a hit, a well-deserved hit! That says alot comming from an Attorney! But the legal community asked for it by charging insane prices.
First, the most obvious sectors of the legal profession which will are already starting to decline are:
- Divorce Lawyers: Many couples are simply going through therapy, drafting pre-nupts which leave no room for debate, or mitigating a divorce to cut costs. Divorce Lawyers are quickly starting to be a thing of the past. The only Divorce Lawyers which will be left are most likely going to reside in California or New York; to take care of celebrity or Fortune 500 weddings.. lol
- Corporate Lawyers and Litigation: Yes, this field is growing, but at a decreasing rate. Soon, there will be zero growth, and then, we will start seeing negative growth. The reason is because more corporations are starting to see that it is better to reach a settlement in areas like torts, that to proceed with costly litigation. However, lawyers remaining in this field will most likely still handle multi-million/billion dollar transactions, M&As, Bankruptcy.. ect..
- Real Estate Law: No, this has nothing to do with the cooling down of the housing market. Real Estate Brokers will be required to have a 4-year college degree; starting 2012 in most states. On the flip side, most states adopting this policy will give a Real Estate Broker the right to act as one party's attorney; (except in California). This will reduce costs for buyers and sellers, either from commission fees or attorney costs. As a result, this will hopefully stimulate the housing market once more.
- Estate Planning, Financial Planning, & Tax Law: This used to be one of the fields where you needed both an Accountant and an Attorney, or an Attorney who knew alot about accounting. Not anymore! Most states will require 150 college credits in order to be a CPA. As a result, more and more accountants will have the time to take more advanced classes in Taxation, Business Law, and Financial & Estate Planning. Degrees like M.S. in Taxation, M.S. in Accounting, and M.S. in Finance are becoming more popular graduate degrees for people already holding a B.S. in Accounting. As a result, Accounting firms, Law firms, and even Corporations will pick the cheaper, and equally good alternative to Tax Attorneys; higher quality Accountants.
Now, since the number of jobs in the legal profession are estimated to stay the same, we have to wonder; "if these fields will leave more lawyers without a job, which fields are expected to grow and fill the gap?"
Negotiations: No, not for houses, not for used cars, but for bet-the-company moves and hostile takeovers. Lawyers will be needed to negotiate complex deals between corporations and take into account all contingientcies that may arrise in the future, into the contract. Bargaining will play an essential role, so the actual skill of negotiating will be in high demand.
Alternative Dispute Resolution: Well, if Litigation is dropping, then it follows that ADR will increase in demand. Think of it as settlement bargaining, to avoid costly trials.
Constitutional Law & Litigation: Although the U.S. Supreme Court has listened to less and less cases through the years, many econometricians believe that we are reaching an era where the U.S. Supreme Court will have to face many Constitutional battles between Congress and the Executive Branch. In addition, many states have already introduced extreame legislation which many Constitutional Lawyers argue "are flat-out unconstitutional time-bombs waiting to go off the second someone has standing to file suit."; (Example: restrictions on gay married couples to adopt & foster children, full-bans on abortions, ect.)
- Criminal Lawyers: As the wage gap grows larger every year between the rich and poor, both traditional crime aswell as white-collar business crime is expected to rise! Well, this is only good news for both types of criminal lawyers.
Well, I hope this was helpful; Best of Luck!

I Need To Find A Lawyer To Sue A State, The Dhs And Ex-Husband For My Children Being Sexually Abused!?
My 3 Small Children Were Sexually Abused By Their Eldest Half-Brother Who Does Not And Did Not Live With Us. I Found Out After A Wellness Check Up That This Had Been Happening Each Weekend Visit Of Each Month. Back In 2001 I Reported To The Dhs Concerns I Had About My Eldest Son Touching My Youngest... They Did Nothing. In 2004 My Young Daughter Told Me Her Half Brother Was Asking Her To Let Him Come To Her Room. I Told His Dad And Supposedly He Came Down Hard On Him. I Didn'T Know This Was Happening And Feel As Though The Dhs Failed Me The First Time, The Dad (Ex) Failed Me The Second Time. My Son Was Charged With 3 Counts Of Lewd Molestation And One Count Of 1St Degree Rape. I Want Justice! My Kids And I Are In Counselling...Still, Almost 1 Year Later. My Son, Still In A Treatment Center.
Unfortunately since there have been REPUBLICANS in power they have cut the budgets so severely that this is happening all the time. There aren't enough social workers and case managers to do anything to protect children.
The half brother that was doing the molesting was likely molested himself. Was the father to blame?
I'm not sure you can sue DHS but I hope that you are able to get some justice for these kids. There needs to be sweeping reform and I hope that you take action on this and write every single representative you can. Write lots of letters, make phone calls and protest.
The laws regarding child abuse are way too easy on predators. For those of you who told this mother to calm down you have no idea what it is like. She didn't ask for judgement she asked for help.
These kids will struggle for the rest of their lives to maintain self esteem and healthy relationships. The effects of this will stay with them and they may not even realize that it is happening. Thank goodness for therapy but gently remind them they may need treatment as they get older.
I Have A Question About Legal Representation. My Husband And I Are Being Evicted For Being Late Partial Rent?
For The Month Of October. My Husband Lost His Job, And While We Were Awaiting His Unemployment, I Had To Sell Something To Make Our Rent Payment For That Month. I Was Able To Pay Her The Money, But I Was $100.00 Short. I Told Her I Would Get Her The Money As Soon As Possible. After Living There For 2 Years And Paying Our Rent Every Single Month, I Thought She Would Be Understanding A Little Of Our Situation And Give Me The Time To Come Up With The Rest Of The Money, But She Was Not.
At First She Gave Me A Letter Saying She Would Be Okay With Waiting, And Then Less Than A Week Later, She Decided To Verbally Evict Us, Even Before Rent Had Been Due For The Next Month. We Were Only 100.00 Short. On The Day Rent Was Due For The Next Month, I Was Given The Written Notice For 10 Day Eviction, So That They Would Look Better In Court To Not Have Filed Something For Only $100.00.
We Couldn'T Find A Place Within 10 Days. That'S Insane To Expect People To Move With A 17 Month Old Baby In The Winter, After Husband Just Lost His Job, In 10 Days...Impossible. So They Filed Through Court. They Had Said In Eviction Notice That They Were Willing To Forget The November Rent Since They Had Asked Us To Leave The Day It Was Due, As Long As We Paid The Remainder Of Octobers Rent. Then In The Court Papers They Filed, They Claim We Owe Them $425.00 Not Including The Almost $200.00 Court Costs.
I Talked With An Attorney Who Thought They Were Crazy For Trying To Evict Us Over A $100.00 Payment That Was Late When Court Costs Are Actually More To Pay Than What We Owed Them. He Told Me To Try To Give Them The Money Owed To Them Right Away, And Go To Court And Explain To The Judge That We'D Fallen Upon Hard Times But That We Were Trying To Do The Right Thing And Made Payment On What Was Owed. I Couldn'T Really Afford To Pay The Attorney To Represent Me At This Time, Even Though I Feel I Need One.
I Went To Give Them The Money Yesterday, And They Refused Payment. ???? If They Want To Evict Us For Payment, Why Would They Refuse What Is Owed To Them? Even In Court Papers, And Eviction Notice They State We Were Good Tenants, And We Are Good Tenants. We'Ve Dealt With Much Since We'Ve Been Evicted From Them, Including Serious Harrassment, It'S Been Crazy Actually. I Just Wanted To Do The Right Thing And Pay Them. I Have A Written Note Stating They Refused Payment.
I Talked To The Attorney Today And He Thinks The Whole Thing Is Insane. Especially Considering That We'Ve Lived Here For Over 2 Years, Making Rent Payments Every Single Month, And Even Doing Alot Of Repairs To This Place That Were Owed To Us In The Deduction Of Rent Which Was Never Given To Us. My Husband Remodled Things In The Kitchen, Bathroom, Replaced Fixtures, All Which Are Stated In Our Lease That Would Be Deducted From Our Rent, We Gave The Receipts And It Was Never Deducted.
I Cannot Afford To Pay An Attorney But I Talked To Someone Over The Weekend Who Told Me To Look For A Pro Bono Attorney In My Area. They Said It Seems Like I Need Someone To Stick Up For Our Situation Since It Seems Like They'Re Trying To Do Something Tricky For God Only Knows What Reason. My Guess Is That It'S Because Of The Fact That We Found Out Our Furnace Was Not Up To Code And Very Dangerous A Couple Weeks Before We Were Evicted And I Had Asked For It To Be Fixed, And Magically I Was Evicted. Either Way, My Hearing Is On Tuesday, And All These Things Are Happening And Everyone Is Telling Me I Now Need To Get An Attorney Because Everyone Thinks They'Re Up To Do Some No Good Things In Court, So Can I Get A Continuance On Monday So We Can Find An Attorney Or Is It Too Late? Isn'T It My Legal Right To Find Legal Representation, And Also How Long Do You Get For A Continuance?
Where are you? State and local laws can make a big difference in these cases. You could try googling legal aid with the name of your state, city, or region (I'm assuming you are in the United States), but they might be closed for the weekend. In civil cases like eviction, people have a right to an attorney if they can afford one, or if they can find one to take the case for free, but they don't have a right to postpone court dates because they haven't found an affordable (effectively free in the case of many) attorney in time.
There are a wide variety of reasons not to give legal advice over the internet, so I'm deliberately phrasing the following information as information, not advice.
People that can't afford an attorney or aren't able to find a free attorney are permitted to act as their own attorney. rwa000 is dead wrong about there being no defenses to nonpayment of rent, and he's also dead wrong about there being no pro bono lawyers for tenants in eviction cases, although it's easier to find one in some regions than in others. I have personally represented tenants for free, and I've worked with many people that take eviction cases for free.
In the United States:
Breach of the warranty of habitability is a defense to nonpayment of rent. When there are conditions in the apartment that are in violation of building codes, and the tenant has requested repairs, and the landlord has not made repairs within a reasonable amount of time, the warranty of habitability has ben breeched.
Retaliation against a tenant for requesting repairs is another defense to nonpayment of rent.
Defendants need to prove their defenses by a preponderance of the evidence in order to win their eviction cases. Evidence in such cases includes things that indicate that a condition in the apartment is not up to code, such as photographs and notices of violations from the department of building inspectors. Other forms of evidence include evidence that the tenant requested repairs, such as copies of written requests and witness testimony.
Stay strong. Good luck.
