What Type Of Lawyer Do I Need To Write Legalities On My Website?
I Have A New Website That I Am Launching Selling Items That Are Made To Order. I Need A Lawyer That Deals With Writing Legalities For The Site As Well As Dealing With Copyright Issues. What Type Of Lawyer Should I Seek And Could I Find One Online?
A general practitioner will fit the bill the best. Pull up your state bar directory by googling xxxx(your state) bar membership directory or use the lawyers.com directory. Then choose business lawyers. Then make some calls. (incidentally for more on the copyright question you need to be specific. Copyright law is practiced by IP (intellectual property) lawyers.
If you are making physical things for people, there are two things you are dealing with 1) the tech issues for how to take custom orders (not a legal issue) and 2) the contract language when the persons makes the order.
If you you want to DIY, then google around finding other similar sites that look professionally done and copy what they appear to be doing. Most states are covered under the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) which provides that made to order items must be paid for when ordered unless the product does not match the order.
Any Lawyers Out There? Need Help On An Alimony Problem.?
My Husbands Ex-Wife Has A Boyfriend Living With Her, For Over A Year Now. They Say All We Have To Do Is Prove It, And My Husband Can Stop Paying Alimony. What Can Of Evidence, Or How Can You Prove It? What Do They Really Need? There Are No Children, She Has A Good Job And Also Got Everything Including The House.
I think the other folks are correct. In my state, your husband's ex would have to be married to eliminate alimony. I'm a lawyer and you might make a case for eliminating alimony in the future, but a one year relationship is too short to do so.
Agree Or Disagree: A Lawyer Who Manages His Own Legal Problems Has A Fool For A Client?
A Lawyer Will Usually Get Better Legal Service If He Uses Another Lawyer Besides Himself
I would agree. The reason I agree is because you truly cannot be 100% objective and impartial if you do not hire outside counsel. Your case will essentially be based on what you think is best rather than the facts and the law.
Anyone Know Any Good Dental Malpractice Lawyers In Orange County? Know Their Rates Etc? Any Personal Reviews?
I Am 23, In College I Caught An Elbow To The Face In A Basketball Game, I Went To The Dentist Where They Said The Root Had Died On The Tooth That Was Hit. The Doctor Extracted The Tooth And Then Said The Next Step Would Be An Implant. The Implant Was Later Installed And 1 Week Before Putting On The Permanent Crown On He Said The Implant Was 6Mm Off And Would Need To Take Out The Implant And Redo The Process. I Was Very Pissed Because The Operation Was Pretty Painful. Since He Was The Dentist I Trusted Him And His Suggestions So ..We Extracted The Implant And Let It Heal, Once Healed 6-7 Months Later He Installed Another Implant In My Gums..I Thought This Time Would Work For Sure But No, 4 Months Later The Screw Was Protruding Out Of My Gums And Was Now Exposed. I Went In To See Him And He Said The Implant Had Failed Once Again. I Couldnt Believe This!! How Could He Mess Up Two Times In A Row!? He Offered To Refer Me To A Specialist And Pay For Their Treatment, Which Is Not Even Worth It, I Went To See A New Doctor And ..We Had To Extract The Implant Once Again, This Operation Was Much More Serious And Severe (Got Thisoperation Done On 4/3) Missed 2 Weeks Of Work Due To The Operation. We Had To Extract The Implant, Get A Bone Graft And A Soft Tissue Graft, This Is All Very Painful And The Post Recovery Is Taking So Long.
My New Doctor Is Good, He Does The Teeth And Implants Of The Anaheim Mighty Ducks.. Anyways He Told Me The Implant That Was Placed In By My Old Doctor Placed It In A Bad Spot And That There Was No Bone Left In That Spot Due To All The Operations That Were Done And A Bone Graft Should Have Been Done The First Time They Extracted My Implant.. Said My Old Doctor Doesnt Seem To Have Much Experience In Implants And Did Many Things Wrong.
Do You Guys Think I Have A Valid Lawsuit If I File One? I Am 23 And I Have Been Missing A Tooth For Almost 3 Years Now.. You Know How Embarrasing That Is? I Have Been Waring A Flipper (Fake Tooth) Until Now.. I Dont Think Its Fair For My Old Doctor To Just Refer Me To Soemone Else After He Screwed Me Up So Bad. Just Because He Pays For It To Be Fixed I Still Am Hurting Everyday. My Family And I Seriously Want To Sue This Guy Due To Malpractice And The Pain And Suffering I Have Gone Through. I Have Now Gone Through 5 Operations Now..And Will Be Going In For My 6Th Once My Mouth Heals And To Put In The Implant One More Time...
Please Advise If You Think I Should Be Able To Get Compensated With Some Money For This Stuff I Have Gone Thru, Also If You Know Of Any Good Dental Malpractice Lawyers In The Orange County Area Id' Greatly Appreciate It.
How Much Money You Think I Would Be Awarded For The Settlement?
You should get in touch with a malpractice lawyer.
You should be able to get the info from local paper or Yellow Pages.
Yes, I know that people do win cases like that if you have genuine reason for suit and can prove your case.
Usually the amount does not get disclosed because most of the time these cases settle out of court.
Your lawyer will quote you an amount that you can claim based on the strength of the case.
You WILL win a much bigger amount though if you go to court and win.
You have to be positive about the prospect of winning though !!
Otherwise, you may not get anything.
What Kinds Of Law...?
What Kinds Of Law Are There? Also, If A Lawyer Defends Elderly Citizens (Especially In Cases Like Elder Abuse), What Kind Of Law Is That?
Other fields of law (as noted in the Department of Labor Occupational Outlook Handbook http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos053.htm include:
Lawyers may specialize in a number of areas, such as bankruptcy, probate, international, elder, or environmental law. Those specializing in environmental law, for example, may represent interest groups, waste disposal companies, or construction firms in their dealings with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other Federal and State agencies. These lawyers help clients prepare and file for licenses and applications for approval before certain activities may occur. Some lawyers specialize in the growing field of intellectual property, helping to protect clients’ claims to copyrights, artwork under contract, product designs, and computer programs. Other lawyers advise insurance companies about the legality of insurance transactions, guiding the company in writing insurance policies to conform to the law and to protect the companies from unwarranted claims. When claims are filed against insurance companies, these attorneys review the claims and represent the companies in court.
Most lawyers are in private practice, concentrating on criminal or civil law. In criminal law, lawyers represent individuals who have been charged with crimes and argue their cases in courts of law. Attorneys dealing with civil law assist clients with litigation, wills, trusts, contracts, mortgages, titles, and leases. Other lawyers handle only public-interest cases—civil or criminal—concentrating on particular causes and choosing cases that might have an impact on the way law is applied. Lawyers are sometimes employed full time by a single client. If the client is a corporation, the lawyer is known as “house counsel” and usually advises the company concerning legal issues related to its business activities. These issues might involve patents, government regulations, contracts with other companies, property interests, or collective bargaining agreements with unions.
A significant number of attorneys are employed at the various levels of government. Some work for State attorneys general, prosecutors, and public defenders in criminal courts. At the Federal level, attorneys investigate cases for the U.S. Department of Justice and other agencies. Government lawyers also help develop programs, draft and interpret laws and legislation, establish enforcement procedures, and argue civil and criminal cases on behalf of the government.
Other lawyers work for legal aid societies—private, nonprofit organizations established to serve disadvantaged people. These lawyers generally handle civil, rather than criminal, cases.
Is Law School Just For Becoming A Lawyer? Other Options?
This May Be A Really Dumb Question, But...
I Just Started College And I Am Considering Maybe Law School After, If I Do Well On The Lsat. I Am Interested In Law, Human Rights, Criminal Justice, Ect. But, I Was Just Wondering If There'S Any Other Careers Besides A Lawyer Or A Judge, In The Criminal Justice Field That Might Benefit Me From Going Into Law School?
That's not a stupid question.
Law school is a type of professional school, sort of like business school or medical school, that's designed to set you on a certain career path. If you attend medical school, you're working toward being a doctor. If you attend business school, you probably want to end up working in some business capacity - as an executive or even an entrepreneur. If you attend law school, you're working toward being a lawyer.
That being said, people use their JDs for many other types of jobs. The question, though, isn't whether you can do something else with your JD, but whether your JD would actually help you do something else besides being a lawyer/judge. The answer is not really. In some situations, a JD will price you out of the market. Employers will wonder why you're not a lawyer and will worry that you're a flight risk. They'll think you're overqualified, as well. In other cases, I've heard of executives having JDs or JD/MBAs, but I get the impression that they're not all that beneficial. You could, of course, teach with a JD, but it's not as competitive as other types of advanced degrees unless you want to teach law.
In general, I would advise people not to go to law school if they know from the outset that they have no interest in being a lawyer. The reason is that law school is a very expensive way to get an education. It's not as flexible as a master's or a PhD and there's not as much applicability to other careers as there would be with an MA/PhD. There's no rule that you can't transition to other careers with a JD, but most other types of careers aren't looking for JDs, either.
If you want to keep your options open, try to get into a PhD program. If you want to work in human rights law or some kind of public interest law, then consider law school.
