The majority of people today do not think about finding a lawyer until they are in desperate need. The lawful situation might be personal, like family law, for a divorce proceedings or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer or attorney. It may be a criminal situation you will need to be defended on. Businesses need to have lawyers as well, no matter whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or potentially unfair business strategies. Tax attorneys are also useful any time coping with government difficulties. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A sizeable, full service law firm has many lawyers with numerous areas of skills, so based on your personal legal issue, you can instantly hold on to the finest law firm to fulfill your ongoing need without having to commence your search each time you need legal support.It is best to obtain a law firm you can trust. You want one with a very good track record, who ishonest, productive, and wins cases. You want to have confidence that they will defend you the right way and charge you fairly for their services.

Should I Feel Bad About Getting Alimony?
Lawyer Said I Can Get Alimony, Husband Said No Or I Will Not Get The House My Two Adult Autistic Kids Found Stability In This Home For 14 Years And He Said He Needs To Find Himself And Find His Identity,What Does That Mean? I Feel Bad But I Need To Take Care Of My Kids And Hes 53 And Decided On His Own To Leave And Not Call Or Come Home.Well What Do U Think? Thanks
I am sorry about the marriage going south.I wonder how old the children are ? If your
children are under 21 your husband has to pay support.I feel they are older so Your
lawyer asks for alimony! It appears you need financial assistance. You should not
feel bad; that won't put food on the table.It seems your husband is having a "mid life crisis".
I think he is wondering what happened to his dream? I feel bad for him...dreams and
reality seldom mesh.I hope you can remain civil and tell him if he needs someone to talk
to...you will be there.I wish you the best,
Anyone Know What Top Lawyers Work At Dickum,Dunkum,& Taxem?
In Washington, D.C.
The same ones that used to work for Dewey, Cheatum and Howe.
I Work In A Law Firm Performing Different Tasks But I Have Noticed That The Attorneys?
Hardly Ever Laugh Or Smile. It Seems It Is Such A Serious Environment. They Hardly Even Speak. Not That It Bothers Me But Pondering Why Is It Like This In Most Law Firms?
Yes, welcome to the World of Law. And WHY do you suppose your attorneys hardly ever smile?
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. ANd the legal profession is dramatically changing and is in absolute CRISIS!!! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, 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 still 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.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!!*****
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.

How Effective/Reliable Are Traffic Attorneys?
They Make A Lot Of Incredible Claims About Getting Charges Dropped, Etc. Some Of Them Offer To Go To Court On Your Behalf If You (The Defendant) Are From Far Away. I Am Not Usually A Skeptic, But I Am Taking A Leap Of Faith As I Am Merely Talking To Them Over The Telephone. How Reliable Are The Lawyers, And How Are They So Effective?
Attorneys can sometimes get things dropped, but it is a case by case analysis so they can't promise anything.

Interview lawyers go to the legal aid department and ask for a list of Family lawyers in your area and the you need some information on the ones who specialize in custody battles. Do some research on these lawyers on the net and see if you can tell who has had the most success and who has worked for the children's best interest. Then make appointments with some of these lawyers. Some offer a free 1/2 hour or hour sessions to hear what you want and see if they want your case then you can ask the questions you think you are relevant. Good luck
