Most people today do not think about choosing a law firm till they are in desperate need. The lawful difficulty could possibly be personal, like family law, for a separation and divorce or if you are hunting for a bankrupcy or trust lawyer. It may be a criminal condition you will need to be defended on. Companies want lawyers as well, whether or not they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unjust business procedures. Tax law firms are also helpful whenever engaging with government troubles. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A large, full service law firm has a lot of attorneys with different areas of expertise, so relying on your current legal issue, you can promptly retain the finest legal representative to meet your ongoing need without having to commence your search each time you need legal help.It is best to find a law firm you can believe. You really want one with a very good track record, who istrustworthy, effective, and wins cases. You need to have confidence that they will represent you the right way and bill you reasonably for their services. Occasionally a referral from a colleague or business associate can be useful, even so you should continue to keep your options open and review all the firms available, for the reason that when you require legal help, you need it immediately and you desire the very best you can afford.

Who Would Fight For A Better Settlement Deal, A No Win No Fee Solicitor Or Solicitor Using Legal Aid?
A solicitor has an obligation to act in the best interests of his or her client, irrespective of the nature of the retainer (i.e. whether it's no win, no fee, legal aid or an hourly rate)
Based upon the fact that you have used the term solicitor I am going to assume you are in the UK. I was a solicitor in the UK for a number of years before I emigrated to the USA.
Whether or not legal aid or no win, no fee is available to you depends not only on your level of income (in the case of Legal Aid, which is means tested) but the type of case. Legal Aid was phased out in 1999 for personal injury cases, paving the way for 'conditional fee agreements', also known as 'no win, no fee'. Companies like The Accident Group and Claims Direct thrived at this time, but as we know, they fell by the wayside as all they were really doing was selling high-interest credit to fund bogus after-the-event legal expenses insurance.
Talk to a local solicitor about the options in your case. With the limited information you have given in your question it is impossible to give a complete answer.
Age Discrimination Lawyers?
Where Can I Find A List Of Legit Lawyers/Attorneys For An Age Discrimination Case? I Cannot Find Any. Everyone That I Call Says They Do Not Accept Age Discrimination Cases (Their Website However, Claims They Do.) I Live In Stockton, Ca And This Is Also Where The Discrimination Occurred. Any Advice Would Be Much Appreciated. Thank You.
Maybe it's that you have no case...which is usually the case.
Can I Get Charged For Missing A Legal Consultation Appointment?
I Set Up A Consultation With An Attorney A Couple Days Ago Via Phone And Gave The Law Office My Name And Number, But Decided To Meet With A Different Attorney Instead. Is There Someway That They Can Charge Me (They Charge $165.00 An Hour For A Consultation) For Missing The Appointment Without Calling In Advance? All They Have Is My Name And Number (Which Means They Could Probably Get Other Information Pretty Easily). Or Am I Just Being Completely Paranoid?
Yes, you can get charged for missing a legal consultation. I am a paralegal and I've hunted down people with only their name. We have our ways, databases and legal subscriptions. If a good paralegal knows enough about your situation, and any other information such as who and what the consultation was about, they can get your address.
However, with that said, if they didn't ask for your full information, they probably don't charge for missed appointments. Not all law firms charge for the missed time. It takes too much effort to chase down non-clients.
I Have Been Going To My Dr. For 3 Years Now And Trust Her Completely. She Has Had Me On Seroquel And Wellbutrin For 2 Years And Just Decided To Up My Dosage Of Wellbutrin (Against My Wishes). I Didn'T Have A Reason To Raise The Dose, She Just Said She Wanted To. Well After 1 Week Of Taking The Higher Dose I Had A Seizure (Thank Goodness I Wasn&Quot;T Driving My Son Anywhere!!!) I Fell Off A Really High Chair And Broke My Nose, Lacerated It Resulting In Many Stitches And A Nasty (Soon To Be) Scar And Had A Concussion. When I Went In To See Her After This Event She Said She Knew She Shouldn'T Have Increased The Dose With My Past Medical History Of Bulima (I Guess The Pdr Says Not To Give To Bulima Patients) And She Said That She Also Has Had Another Pt. Have A Seizure At The Higher Dose Too. And The Pdr Says That The Higher Dose Has A High Risk Of Seziures. Should I Sue? I'Ve Racked Up A Lot Of Bills, Had To Drop Out Of School B/C Of The Concussion And Missed 1 Month Of Work.
I'm sorry you had to go through this. Medical malpractice is a negligence issue. However, instead of holding the doctor to an "ordinary reasonable person" standard, we hold them to the standard of the average member of the local medical community, or in the case of a specialist, to the National Standard.
Where it gets tricky is that you MUST present expert testimony to prove a medical malpractice case. Your expert must be knowledgeable about psych meds, must say that your doctor made a choice that was unreasonable, and that didn't meet the medical standard for whatever level your doctor is to be held to.
It's sometimes very difficult to find a doctor who is willing to testify against another doctor, and it can get very expensive. Look in the yellow pages for an attorney who handles med mal, and see if they will give you a no-charge consultation. If you have a good case, they may take it on contingency. Otherwise, this is going to get expensive for you.
Good luck. Namaste.
EDIT: thumbs down? This is straight out of my Torts text - what more do you people want?!?
How Much Assistance Does Legal Aid Provide For A Tenant In A Landlord/Tenant Hearing?
It really depends upon the legal aid office. But usually they will provide representation by an attorney. But again this would depend on the resources of the office. Depending on the resources they may only be able to offer limited services. You should check with the specific office.
