3 Approaches To Know You've Picked The Proper Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to undergo a legal court system, specifically if you lack confidence inside your legal team. Here are three important approaches to realize that you've hired the right lawyer: 1. They Specialize In Your Type Of Case Legislation is often tricky and this requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you really need a legal representative, search for one who handles the issue you're facing. Even when a family member or friend recommends you employ a good they are aware, once they don't use a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. As soon as your attorney is undoubtedly an expert, specifically in the trouble you're facing, you understand you've hired the best one. 2. The Lawyer Has A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it can be hard to win a case, specifically if the team working for you has hardly any experience. Look for practices who have won numerous cases that apply to yours. Although this is no guarantee that you case will be won, it gives you a significantly better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond If the attorney you've chosen takes the time to hear your concerns and respond to your inquiries, you've probably hired the right choice. No matter how busy these are or how small your concerns seem off their perspective, it's critical that they react to you within a caring and timely manner. From the aim of view of a regular citizen who isn't informed about the judicial system, court cases might be pretty scary you need updates as well as to seem like you're section of the solution. Some attorneys are merely considerably better to both you and your case than the others. Ensure you've hired the most suitable team for your circumstances, to ensure that you can placed the matter behind you as soon as possible. Faith within your legal representative is step one to winning any case.

Can A High School Student Get A Part-Time Job At A Law Office ?
This Summer I Want To Get A Part Time Job In A Law Office; I Know You Need Schooling To Become A Lawyer, But Are There Any Other Jobs In A Law Office That A High School Student Is Eligible For?
I'M Also Looking For An Internship At A Law Office, Are There Any Opportunities For Me To Serve As An Intern In A Law Office?
If you have a "mommy" or a "daddy" or other relative that is already employed at a law office, then you may have a chance at getting in.
You need basic schooling to work at a law office even if it is simply working as a Receptionist - there are basic things that legal professionals need to know so their employer doesn't get into trouble. For example, you cannot give advice without a license as an attorney or you can get prosecuted for "Unauthorized Practice of Law". There are other basic rules that all legal professionals need to know before they work in a legal environment.
Without an important contact, and/or without some basic training as to working in a legal environment, then -no- you probably won't be offered any opportunities.
My suggestion is to try to get into any type of an office environment for now as a high-school student.
I hope you are not entertaining the thought of law school in your future.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed DRAMATICALLY! Every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television. There are many myths regarding the field of Law: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves 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), 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), 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), as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), 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.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true" ultimate goal.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Regarding being a Paralegal: Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with Bachelors degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
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, 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!!
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 have too many law schools. We are 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.
>>>>>I cannot warn you about this enough!!>>>You especially have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools!!!*****<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just 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 job availability in the field of Law..................
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!

Will The Family Law Courts Look At This?
The Mother Of My Child Lives With Her Parents And Is Not Allowed To Make Any Decisions About Our Child. Her Mother Is In Charge Of Everything Because Her Mother Says She Can'T Make The Right Decisions. Her Mother Has Already Said That Even After Court I Am Not Going To See Our Child. I Told My Ex Then She With Be The One Being Charged With Contempt Of Court And Not Her Mother. She Says She Knows But There Is Nothing She Can Do About It. Will The Courts Take Into Consideration That My Ex'S Own Mother Says She Can'T Make Good Decisions?
I'm somewhat confused about whose mother we're talking about sometimes. The child's mother or the child's mother mother?
Is it the child's mother mother that says you won't see the child and also say's that the child's mother is not capable of making decisions?
Anyways, she will have to be willing to testify. Are you sure you want to call a witness who is not on your side? They could easily turn this around and just say that your ex has the responsible support of her family to provide a stable home environment.
And this sounds very expensive when you start calling witnesses and dragging things out. I'm not sure just this bit of testimony alone would be worth bringing your ex's mother into this. It is far more important to focus on your ex and yourself.
Courts of course favor the parent that is more open to visitation with the other parent. Its not a good thing if the child is in the custody of a household that restricts this. Just write it down in a diary you should be keeping regarding everything about the child and your ex.
We Need A Good Lawyer?
Does Anyone Know A Good Lawyer Here In Ark? On Child Custody? We Need Help
There is a website called, Martindale Hubbell, where lawyers are listed for each state. On that website, there are ratings for the attorneys, which are from other attorneys that are practicing law in the same area and know that lawyer. The ratings are either an A, B, or C. You want an A rated attorney. If one client has an A rated attorney, and the opposing side has anything less, they likely will not have a good outcome. Attorneys on that site, can request that their ratings not be listed. In my opinion, when an attorney doesn't want their rating listed, that probably means they have a low rating. This website will also give you some background information on each attorney. I am sure if an attorney is forced to hire another lawyer for their own personal legal problem, they only hire an A rated attorney. This site gives you that inside information, so you know which lawyers are considered the best by your local legal community. Remember that the lowest rating they give is a C, which is really probably equivalent to an F. Also, look up the opposing side's attorney and check out their rating. Then you will know what you are up against. Martindale Hubbell is a very informative legal directory. Also, check out the website for the Arkansas Bar Association. Each state has their own bar association, and so information that is available will vary in each state.
Question About Garage Legal Liability Insurance...?
I Am Going To Give A Scenario, I Need To Know If This Should Be Covered By The Insurance.
A Service Tech Is Working At A Reputable Dealership. He Is Changing Tires On A Customer'S Vehicle, But For Some Reason Gets Hurried And He Forgets To Tighten The Lugnuts On One Of The Wheels.
The Customer Leaves The Dealership, And A Mile Down The Road The Wheel Falls Off The Vehicle Damaging The Wheel.
Now The Service Tech'S Boss Is Making Him Pay For The Replacement Wheel And Tire, Plus Body Work Needed To The Vehicle, Though There Was No Visible Body Damage.
Is This Right? Or Should The Damages Be Covered By The Garage Liability Insurance?
I Asked A Similar Question In The &Quot;Insurance&Quot; Category And Did Not Get A Good Response.
Have had it happen before. Employee was given the choice or paying for the repairs, or looking for a new job.
Yes, their insurance would cover it, but there is a deductable to be paid. It was carelessness on his part that he forgot to tighten the lugnuts. If it was the first time let him pay for the repairs to teach him a lesson, if it happens again fire him.
Do You Have To Pay Taxes On Personal Injury Mental Anguish Settlement Money?
I Am Going To Be Receiving Settlement Money From A Personal Injury Mental Anguish Claim. I Live In Texas. Is This Taxable?
Settlements for physical injury or illness are not taxable. A claim purely for mental anguish does NOT meet the physical injury or illness test and would therefore be taxable. However if the mental anguish portion is stated separately but was based upon a physical injury or illness, the courts have held that it is not taxable and is merely part of the physical injury payout.
Edit: Rape entails a physical injury component even if minimal compared to the mental anguish. I would argue that it would be a settlement for physical injury, not purely mental anguish. If you are in a position to negotiate a settlement on such a matter, I'd strongly suggest that your attorney insist on it being worded for the physical injury resulting from the attack. At that point the mental anguish component is ancillary to the physical injury component and is therefore not taxable. Also, avoid any punitive damage component if at all possible since punitive damages are fully taxable. A smart attorney would fold any "punitive" component into the basic physical injury award to avoid taxation on it.
Spiritually Speaking, Do You Agree With Kentucky's Homeland Security Law... ?
That Contains The Phase "The Safety And Security Of The State Cannot Be Achieved Apart From Reliance Upon Almighty God"?
I'm Catholic and I think this statement should not have been part of the law. I think if you're a true believer then you don't need legislation to know/remind you of God.
I agree with the lawsuit that these statements need to be removed from the law. However, the portion of the lawsuit seeking monetary damages for mental anguish is an illustration of how frivolous lawsuits have become. Additionally, calling those with beliefs fanatics, traitors or fools, may put off Christians who agree with Atheists about keeping Church and State separate.
