Questions For All Lawyers!!!!?
I Keep Hearing That Unless You Are A Yale Or Harvard Graduate, That Lawyers Don'T Make A Lot Of Money. That They Make Decent Figures But That It Is Not Like What Many Would Imagine.
Is This True? Also How Is The Job Security Of Lawyers?
I am an employment lawyer. I have my own firm. I am not rich. To the poster who said all lawyers are rich, please tell me how I can be rich when I only made $8,500 last year. The line that all lawyers are rich is wrong and totally out of date.
Since the 1970's law schools become more interested in selling classing than training a few talented lawyers to take up the few jobs available. If you go to one of those meet & greets put on by law schools the school's salesman (yes that is what that person is no matter what their title is) will promise you that you will get a job and make lots of money. Once you sign up for the school you will never see the salesman again -- you have been conned.
So now we have more lawyers being turned out from law school, twice a year, than there are jobs. And when the law schools report how many of their graduates get jobs they count anyone who works in a law firm or legal dept including secretaries, clerks, paralegals, receptionists. Two years ago the American Bar Assoc did a survey about salaries and found the average starting salary is around $40,000, and the the new attorney carries around $100,000 educational debt.
There is no guarantee that graduating from Yale or Harvard will help, but the facts are that more of those graduates get jobs. The only for sure way to know you will get a job is to have mommy or daddy in the legal profession and pull some strings for you.
Job security is the same as everyone else. Places like findlaw.com, the national law journal, and the American Bar Assoc newsletters are filled with massive layoffs from the big firms. Many of these huge firms have already announced they will not be hiring anyone right out law school until 2011. The only job security in this profession is owning your own law firm --- and then you will have the problem of putting all your time 24/7 into the firm and getting low pay.

Why Are There So Many Commercials On Local Tv By/For Disability Lawyers..?
It Used To Be Only Occasionally, But Now It'S Like You See One, Right After Another Offering Tv Viewers 'Top Benefits For Your Disability Claim..' Are They Just Giving It To Anyone Now..?
It's just the latest way for them to drum up business. What the people don't realize is how much it will COST them to use one of them to get disability. There are a lot of people out there trying to get on disability who aren't really disabled. Just because your back hurts and you can no longer lift 100lbs doesn't make you disabled. Let's face it, if you're over 35, everyone has things they can't do anymore.
The problem is, there are so many lazy folks out there trying to get on it that don't need it, that it's harder for people with legitimate disabilities to get it.
If I Cause An Accident While Driving Under The Influence Of Alcohol, Will Me Insurance Pay? Should They Pay?
In the US, the standard auto policy does NOT include an exclusion for accidents that occur while the driver is operating under the influence of anything. But the endorsement DOES exist. I have only ever seen it used on commercial auto policies, and only once, actually, in 21 years.
You can, however, be an excluded driver on the policy, in which case, the insurance doesn't apply - regardless of influence.
Should they pay? Absolutely. The POINT of that coverage, is to pay for the damages of the innocent party. The operator will be "punished" by the rating system. Contracts must be adhered to, and the occasional DUI driver is factored into the rates.
Are YOU covered? Who knows? I don't know what country you are in, or what policy form you have, or if you're an excluded operator. Ask your agent, or read your policy.
How Is Criminal Law,Civil Law,Administrative Law,Case Law,Procedural Law Similar And Different?
Most of the terms are pretty self-explanatory.
Criminal law refers to laws that make certain actions crimes.
Civil law refers to laws that provide a civil remedy for certain actions.
Admin law defines administrative and regulatory procedures.
Procedural law refers to any procedures, but most often is used to describe the rules of court (civil or criminal procedure).
Case law refers to the holdings of prior cases, which serves as binding or persuasive authority under the common law system.
Common law is another name for case law in a common law model.
Another use of the term civil law is to distinguish from common law.
In a common law system, like England or the US, judges interpret the law and those interpretations remain as precedent for later courts. Under a civil law system, like France, judges only apply the law to the specific facts at hand, but later judges may apply the law completely differently because they are not bound by prior decisions/precedent.
Can You Sue Workmans Comp And Still Sue For Personal Inury?
I Have Heard You Cant Have A Workmans Comp Case And A Personal Injury Case And If You Do, You Have To Pay Workmans Comp Back. Is That True?
Yes and no.
First of all, you dont "sue" workers comp. That is a system set up to provide medical coverage and disability coverage for employees without exposure to liability claims to the employer. It's a no fault system to eliminate major litigation and keep families afloat during medical crisis. A compromise.
Most WC claims pre-empt lawsuits. Especially against the employer. However, third party personal injury suits are not excluded. For example, if a piece of equipment has a design defect that causes the injury, you may sue the manufacturer. Your recovery would be diminished by payments under W/C though. Another claim might be medical malpractice after the injury. Or if someone hits you with a car while you are at work. I cant give you a real answer without some facts though.
