Do You Have To Be Present In Court For A Lawsuit Against A Company?
I Am Suing For A Personal Injury Incurred By A Medical Device And The Lawyer Contacted Is Out Of State. How Does Something Like This Normally Work? Would I Have To Show Up In Court If They Are Out Of State? I'M Not Good At Speaking In Public
I agree with some of the answers you received. But next time be more specific and articulate. What does "lawyer contacted" mean. Why not say the lawyer who will represent me or us is out of town--if that indeed is the case. If on the other hand you are talking about an out-of-state attorney who is representing a few people at the same time, still I feel you need to be accompanied by legal counsel.
And whether you will be accompanied by a lawyer, or not, you should be present at that court.
Don't ever shy from your rights. And as to you not being good at talking in public, don't even bother thinking that. Just tell yourself "I will be myself, no matter what. Even if my words don't come out fluent. Even if I do forget to mention something. This is my case and my situation and I will stand up for it!"
Legal Advice For Information?
Recently My Realtor Showed Us Three Houses... We Filled Out Background Check Paper Work And General Information Such As Ss#, Home Adresses All That Plus Possible Incomes I Or My Four Roomates Could Have Had. In The Middle Of Transaction We Never Got Called Back. I Called The Agency And They Told Me He Has Not Worked There In A Week He Was Let Go. None Of Us Signed Confidentiality Forms Or Anything For All We Know He Has All Of Our Information And He Does Have All Of Our Cell Phone Numbers... Anyone Have Any Recommendations Or Any Terms For Which I Could Sew Upon And I Need This To Be Legitimate Not Such An Assumption Thank You
It all depends.....have you advised the Realtor Office of the situation? Maybe all the information was left in their hands as potention clients of the firm. Hopefully he just left and tossed your information out without thinking of using that information to screw you guys over. Good luck with this one!
Where Can I Get Legal Help Other Then Legal Aid?
I Went To Legal Aid In 2002 For Help. I Made To Much Money. I Hired A Lawyer And Got Full Custody. One Your Later The Mother Came Back And Went Through Legal Aid. We Got Equal Joint Custody With Neither Paying Child Support And Taking Turns Alternating Visiting And Return Tax Claiming. She Filed Her Tax This Year And It Was My Year To Claim Him. The Irs Did In The End, Find It Was Only Right By The Court Order And Did Give Me The Return. Just Recentely She Told Me She Was Moving To Platte And I Needed To Sign Some Paperwork For Our Son To Go To School ( Keep In Mind That She Only Said Platte, And I Was Thinking Platte, S.D ). At Last Moment When She Came To Pick Up The Child, She Presented Me The Paper. It Was One That Her Freind Wrote Up And Not A Legal Document. In It Stated She Wanted Me To Give Up My Rights, But Not My Visitions And Let Her Move The Child To North Platte Neb. As We All Have Been Living In South Dakota, And Niether Of Us Can Move The Child Out Of State With Out The Other Agreeing. Today I Went To Legal Aid For Help Again And Now That I Gualify Under The Low Income Part. They Still Can'T Help Me As It Is A Conflict Of Interest For Them Helping Her 6 Years Ago. I Am A Enrolled Member Of Rst And Am Residing In Mission At This Point Of Time. Were Do I Turn To Now For Help? Thank You For Your Time. David
David, contact the state bar association of your state (google it). Many (if not most) states have pro bono programs, where a number of lawyers volunteer to take so many cases a year for no fee. You should be able to get some help that way.
Becoming A Criminal Law Lawyer In Missouri?
I Have Some Legal Stuff That Wasn'T Taken Care Of In California, Non Of It Is Felony However. I Was Reading On The Missouri Bar Web Page That You Go Through A Character Examination. Will This Effect Me Becoming A Attorney? If So, What Do I Do About It.
Why do you want to become an attorney?
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 vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. 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)
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with 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.)
Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
To be an Attorney, approx cost $150,000+.
Do your research, before you enroll.
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.............
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 field of healthcare! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that this is where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

How Does The Military Support Legislation That Conflicts With Constitutional Law?
I would really like to know what your point is. Do you have something specific in mind? Were the Congress to pass legislation that conflicted with the constitution the military would not rise up to destroy congress. That is not our role. We in the military, just like you at home would demand that this law be reviewed and struck down by the SCOTUS. That is part of our checks and balances.
Now a different situation might be if a law were passed that involved the military. A wild example might be what if President XXX declared martial law under authorization of congress and ordered the US Armed Forces to begin rounding up all the brown eyed people and killing them. Regardless of any law giving the president this authority, we are bound to protect and defend the Constitution and would recognize this as an illegal order and we would not obey.
Members of our forces are never bound by law to conduct what they believe to be an illegal act. This is not to say we can question every order or we should protest every order until we get a court ruling. If I tell a private to do something he feels is incorrect yet it causes no damage or danger to himself or others, he should conduct that act and then take it up with the chain of command. If I told a private to do something that would injure himself or others or be so egregious as to cause damage to the United States, then he should refuse the order.
