Finding An Experienced Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will find that there are many lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise they focus on your sort of case. This will make the process of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the following you will be able to restrict your search off to the right one out of almost no time. The first step is to generate a listing of the lawyers which can be listed in the area that specialize in your needs. When you are causeing this to be list you need to only include those that you may have an effective vibe about based upon their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down by taking some time evaluating their webpage. There you should certainly find the amount of years they have been practicing plus some general information regarding their success rates. At this stage your list needs to have shrunken further to the people that you simply felt had professional websites along with an appropriate quantity of experience. You need to then take time to check out independent reviews of each and every attorney. Make sure you read the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The details inside the reviews provides you with an idea of the way they connect to the clientele and the time they invest into each case that they are concentrating on. Finally, you will want to meet with no less than the final three lawyers which have the credentials you are searching for. This will give you some time to really evaluate how interested these are in representing you and the case. It is actually imperative that you follow every one of these steps to ensure that you hire a company containing the right amount of experience to help you get the very best outcome.

What Is A Litigation Lawyer?
What Is A Litigation Lawyer? What Do They Do? Explain To Me Please!?
Lawyers, like doctors, specialize. A litigator is one who presents the case before a judge. Most litigators use law clerks, paralegals, or associates to help prepare their cases.
Associate Attorney Law Firm?
What Is A Day Of Work Like For An Associate Attorney At A Law Firm Who Specializes In Criminal Litigation?
Constantly looking for work..............
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; it 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.<<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. 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 and law books in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just 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/used to 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: *myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of 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), *myth: 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), *myth: 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/compromise), *myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), *myth: 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.
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.) 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 (at an alarming rate), 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 in TODAY's job market!!
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 already have too many law schools. We are STILL 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 future 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.

Would You Help Your New Spouse Pay Alimony To Their Ex Wife/Husband Or The Money Owed To The Divorce Attorney?
My Husband And I Have Been Married For 6 Months, Living Together For 4. While Dating, We Always Keep Or Finances Separate. He Was Already Divorced Before We Meet And Paying Alimony. I Didn'T Ask About The Details Because It Didn'T Concern Me And His Last Payment Was Supposed To Be 3 Months Ago. I Didn'T Know It At The Time But A Month After We Were Married They Entered Into The Final Property Settlement Agreement. Which Let Her In Great Shape Financially, She Never Worked During The 8 Years They Were Married Because She'S Permanently Disabled (A Fake Back Injury Which Never Stopped Her From Spending Hours At The Mall, Salon, Etc). She Kept All Of The Physical Property, Was Held Free From All Debt That She Created $$$$ And Last Year Was Paid $60,000 In Alimony. Now He Owes Her An Additional 8K Plus Attorney'S Fees So About 16K Total. Here'S The Problem. He Had To Take A Massive Pay Cut When We Relocated 4 Months Ago (His Decision Not Mine) And Now He Doesn'T Have The Money To Pay Her. Which He Knew He Would Not Have At The Time He Agreed To The Final Settlement. He Assumed That I Would Pay It. I Didn'T Find This Out Until 2 Months Ago. I Have The Money But I Really Don'T Have It, If You Know What I Mean. It Would Mean Sacrificing Some Times That We Need. I Don'T Feel As If I Should Have To. I Have An 8 Yr Old. I Brought The House We Live In By Myself And I'Ve Already Spent 6K Towards His Personal Finances. His Ex Is Holding Him In Contempt Of Court. The Hearing Is Next Month And His Poor Excuse For An Attorney Is Threating To Drop His Case Because He Hasn'T Been Paid. He Thinks I'M Being Unsupportive For Not Just Giving Him My Money Thus I'M Hanging Him Out To Dry. We Argue About This All Of Time.
thats what happens when you don't discuss your finances before marriage. he seems to be hiding all kinds of financial problems from you, i wonder what will come up next. i say that if it was your agreemnet to keep you finances seperate, then they should continue to be seperate. but in the long run, its gonna affect you because he will have less money to contribute to your joint expenses. you bought him a house as well? he seems to be living good off you. maybe he is trying to milk you for everything you got.
How Will My Attorney Bill Me For His Services?
He'S Preparing A Trust For Deed (Title Search Etc), And I'Ve Been Told By His Friend It Will Cost Appx $500. Should I Take In Payment When I Sign Papers, Or Will He Bill Me?
*I'M Hoping He'Ll Bill Me Because I Don'T Have Another Paycheck For A Few Weeks.
Usually the first thing an attorney usually does is tell you how much he estimates the work to cost and then how he expects to get paid.
What might happen is that you do not get the product of his work until you have the money. However, a call to his office will clarify this.
Should The Drunk Driving Laws Be Repealed?
