Many people do not think about acquiring a law firm until they are in desperate need. The lawful difficulty may possibly be personal, like family law, for a separation and divorce or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a felony situation you need to be defended on. Firms need lawyers as well, no matter if they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unfounded business practices. Tax law firms are also useful anytime engaging with government troubles. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A big, full service law firm has a lot of legal professionals with diverse areas of abilities, so relying on your legal issue, you can promptly retain the very best lawyer to fulfill your up-to-date need without having to start your search each time you need legal support.It is best to obtain a legal professional you can believe. You really want one with a good record, who isstraightforward, reliable, and wins cases. You want to have assurance that they will stand for you thoroughly and invoice you reasonably for their services. Sometimes a recommendation from a pal or business associate can be useful, having said that you should keep your options open and examine all the firms available, for the reason that when you require legal support, you need it immediately and you would like the finest you can manage to pay for.

Volunteer In A Law Office?
Hello, I'M Currently Interested In Law But I'M Not A Law Student. Do You Think A Law Office Would Allow Me To Volunteer As An Office Assistant, Or Is That Just Plain Silly.
I would like to make a suggestion: DON'T invest your time in the vocational field of Law.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important decisions. 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)
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.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
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.
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..................

Is This Going To Effect My Child Custody Case?
Me And My Husband Are In Divorce Process Started This Year, But He Wants To File 2008 Taxes Separately And Claim Our Child , We'Re Been Separated Since November And I'Ve Had The Child Since But Is Visiting With Him Right Now, Can He Do That? And Is This Gonna Effect My Custody Issue?
Since you two were together for the majority of the year, if he was the primary income earner, than yes he may be able to take the deduction, but it will have no affect on your custody case. The best results would be for the two of you to file jointly with any return going into a trust fund to be divided according to the division of assets in the divorce.
As for the child, why not do what's best rather than what's best for you two?
Bird Nest Custody
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
What Do You Think Of Defense Attorneys?
How About Jose Bias? I Asked My Cousin Who Is A Da This Question And I Was Surprised By Her Answer. She Told Me That &Quot;She Doesn'T Respect The Ones Who Only Take The Defendants Money And Do Not Practice Good Law.&Quot; What Do You Think Of Criminal Defense Attourneys?
Every Defendant has the right to a lawyer. They are just doing their job of providing this Constitutionally guaranteed service.
I know a lot of DA's and Defense Attorneys, and most have nothing but the utmost respect for one another, because they understand the system requires them both to be there, and the cases aren't personal for any of the lawyers. DAs know the defendant is going to have an attorney, why would they hate the attorney simply because he is doing his job?
Most people who think defense lawyers are the scum of the earth tend to not understand the criminal court system, and also seem to think that these lawyers honestly believe all their clients are innocent (here's a hint, they know that 99% are guilty, but still entitled to a legal defense).
Can I Be Forced To Pay For My Husbands Criminal Defense Attorney?
My Husband Has Got Himself In Trouble With The Law And Is Being Indicted In Federal Court. I Have Always Told Him That I Would Not Help Him With Bail Or Lawyer Fees If He Got Into Trouble. I Was Hoping That He Was Smart Enough To Stay Out Of Trouble, But Apparently He Wasn'T. Everything We Have Is In My Name Because Of His Poor Credit. Might I Be Ordered To Help Him Pay For An Attorney?
No. Unless you signed something acknowleding and accepting his court fees, lawyers fees etc... otherwise, nope. it's his problem.
Do Anyone Know The Name Of An Great Affordable Family Law Lawyer For Child Custody In Albany Georgia?
I Have Been Researching Laws On Joint Custody But Im Having A Hard Time Finding An Lawyer In Albany Georgia. Is There Any Advice Anyone Can Give?
My advice... unless your ex is an imbecile or a direct danger to your child, I'd approach them saying, "I've been searching out Georgia's child custody laws. Do you know that we can either spend thousands of dollars on attorneys to have a judge decide to give neither of us everything we want OR we can spend a few hundred dollars to write up our own parenting plan and pay an attorney to look it over (as in the best interest of our child(ren) & then help us to submit our agreement for a judge's approval?"
A child custody FIGHT goes on until everybody runs out of money. If one parent gets what they want, it will only last until the other parent pays an attorney more money to change it until the next parent pays money... and the cycle is repeated until everyone is too poor to take best care of the children.
EVERY attorney payment you both make is one less vacation outing, health care visit, educational supplies, better child care sitter, etc. that you could have spent on your child.
A child custody AGREEMENT means that both of you walk away happier than letting strangers decide your fate.
You need to make a list of the parenting plan that a judge is going to require of you (or make for you) & then work out item-by-item compromises you can both agree on. Here's the list: http://www.childcustodycoach.com/georgia... & note that you can also get phone help @ $175/hr. to assist you. (That's cheaper than a lawyer consult.)
You need to know that part of a judge's consideration for custody is "The willingness and ability of each of the parents to facilitate and encourage a close and continuing parent-child relationship between the child and the OTHER parent." So approaching the judge with an agreement you both worked out will reflect very well on you two as putting the BEST INTEREST of your child ahead of your own selfish interests & disagreements. The judge is more likely to accept the custody agreement you both have drafted. http://www.helpyourselfdivorce.com/georg...
Once you've completed the draft agreement, both of you should seek one Family Law attorney. Make a consult appointment. Hire the attorney to represent your child's best interest. (He or she will not be representing either parent. Make that clear when calling for the appt.) Show up with your agreement & ask the attorney to help you make that into a court document to be filed for a judge's approval. You both could walk out of this for less than $1000 combined AND your child(ren) will be better off AND both you & your ex can walk away from this more emotionally whole as opposed to emotionally shredded. If you both LOVE your child, you would never think of doing that do a parent that will be having that child in their custody in that vile frame of mind that they were left in all b/c one parent just had to win. Win what? There's no prize when a child is dealing with one or both emotionally maimed parent(s).
