What Do Lawyers Do??
I Really Want To Know What I Want To Be When I Grow Up. I Really Want To Be A Lawyer Cuz It Sounds Cool Defending People And They Make Alot Of Money.
But What Exactly Do Lawyers Do?
What Do They Have To Know?
"What Do Lawyers Do And Where Do They Do It?
All lawyers are not alike. And contrary to the images we see in the movies and on TV, they certainly are not all running to trial every week to win a new case. Lawyers work in various capacities (legal and non-legal) and often specialize in particular areas. The following addresses the more traditional career paths taken by lawyers.
Many lawyers eventually specialize in a particular area. Lawyers may specialize in trial law (civil or criminal), appellate law (helping clients who seek to reverse or to uphold lower court decisions), bankruptcy law, trusts and estates, tax law, corporate law, environmental law, intellectual property, communication law, elder law, employment and labor law, entertainment law, health care law, education law, international law, etc. The list of specializations is almost endless and is always changing in response to new laws and novel legal issues. Moreover, it is not uncommon for a lawyer to launch a career as one type of lawyer and wind up practicing in a different area.
Lawyers not only have a wide variety of specializations from which to choose, they also work in a variety of settings. Some of the most common legal work settings are described below.
The majority of lawyers work in private practice. Some work as solo practitioners, others in small or "boutique" law firms. Many work in firms that have several hundred lawyers in cities across the world. Lawyers usually join firms as "associates" and work toward becoming "partners." The road to partnership is long and full of hurdles. In recent years it has become increasingly common for associates to join a law firm with the expectation that they will gain experience for a number of years but not stick around for a partnership decision. To retain more lawyers, some law firms now allow for "non-equity partnerships" or promote a few attorneys to non-partnership "of counsel" or "special counsel" positions. Life at a law firm, especially a large law firm, is influenced by "billable hours." Each lawyer has a "billable rate" that is used to charge clients for time spent on client matters. In order to bill clients and to get credit for work performed, firm lawyers keep track of the activities they perform each day. Sometimes lawyers record their activities in increments of time as short as six minutes.
Other attorneys are employed by a single client and work "in-house" for that client, usually a large corporation. An in-house attorney advises the company on legal activities related to the company's business. Large companies often have correspondingly large legal departments and a number of in-house attorneys who specialize in specific issues. For example, one might supervise litigation being handled by an outside firm, another might address the company's employment issues, and a third might work as a lobbyist who monitors and tries to influence legislation related to the company's business. Traditionally, many in-house attorneys obtain their positions when they are working in a law firm and are asked by a client to join the company. In-house lawyers often report that they enjoy greater control over their time than their law firm counterparts. Also, because in-house lawyers represent one client, they are not beholden to the "billable hour."
Most government lawyers work at the local level, but state governments and the federal government also hire lawyers to perform a multitude of tasks. Government lawyers include prosecutors (district attorneys, State Attorney Generals, and federal prosecutors who work at the Department of Justice here in D.C. and at U.S. Attorney's Offices throughout the country) and public defenders (who represent those who cannot afford an attorney). Lawyers also work for the Environmental Protection Agency, the Office of Homeland Security, the Security Exchange Commission, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the Patent and Trademark Office, and just about every other government agency that you can name. In addition, state legislative bodies and the United States Congress offer many exciting opportunities for lawyers to develop and help pass legislation.
Judicial clerks are a subset of government lawyers, but warrant separate mention. Judicial clerks research and draft memoranda and opinions for judges. Often, these intellectually stimulating and prestigious positions are short term. Frequently, recent law graduates will spend a year or two clerking before embarking on their legal careers. There are, however, some "permanent clerk" positions that allow for long-term employment.
Many public interest lawyers work for legal-aid societies, which are private, non-profit agencies designed to serve disadvantaged people. These lawyers might seek medical benefits for AIDS patients, represent the poor in landlord-tenant disagreements, or negotiate child visitation rights for individuals who cannot afford private attorneys. Other public interest lawyers work for non-profit organizations that seek to change the law. Lawyers might strive to strengthen environmental laws, to protect the rights of children in foster care, to promote civil rights of gays and lesbians, or to advocate for racial and religious tolerance. Public interest lawyers work on both the "left" and the "right". Some work to abolish abortion, while others work to strengthen abortion rights; some promote "victim's rights" and advocate in favor of the death penalty, while others strive to abolish the death penalty. Non-profit organizations often struggle for funding. As a result, many are willing to provide (non-paying) internships to interested college students. Even after law school, public interest lawyer positions are not high paying. But because they offer other rewards, these positions are often highly competitive.
Lawyers teach in law schools, colleges, and at other educational levels. Many lawyers who hope to become professors first gain teaching experience by working as an adjunct professor and teaching one course while working elsewhere full time. Practicing lawyers who want to teach also often look for publishing opportunities."

Whats The Best Course Of Action If I Got Pull Over And Got Charged With A Dui Even Thou I Blew A .077 On The Breathalizer.
What does the blood test say?
That's what they go by. Breathalizer just gets you in their car. They can still haul you in if it's under the limit.
If the blood test jives with the breathalizer, talk to the DA yourself and work it out. Sometimes they won't talk to you, but they won't try a case they can't win unless you are a menace.
Try to save yourself some money first. A lawyer will cost $500 min for this.

Do Lawyers Lie Cheat And Steal?
In every occupation, including yours, there are people who lie, cheat and steal. It is not limited to one occupation. Lawyers and doctors are in the minority of occupations which have rules of ethics which must adhered to or the lawyer can lose their license to practice law. How many occupations threaten to take your livelihood away from the worker if the worker does not adhere to rules of ethics? How would you like to have every action you do judged by those rules?
As a lawyer we also come across people who lie, cheat and steal (many times from the lawyer) --- they are called clients. The majority of lawyers are fair, honest and trustworthy people who just want to get paid for their work.
Small Claims Legal Advice Needed For A Matter With A Subleaser?
Forgot To Mention -- I Was Not Allowed To Have The Electricity Shut Off Because I Was Not The Owner Of The Property.
For a small claims suit, you will have to file in the county where the property is located, so you will have to travel back to the area once the court date is set, then even if you get a judgment that is not the end of it, you will have to then take that judgment and find her assets if she has any to attach, this can be a tedious process at best, and she maybe what the law calls judgment proof i.e. no assets then no monies to collect
Remember judgment is the easy part collection is the hard part, so you will have to weigh the time and effort to sue this woman versus the potential of not being able to collect on the judgment esp. if she is not paying the rent
You can ask for court fees but it’s up to the judge to award it, and no you do not get monies for missing work to sue the person, not sure about other expenses related to the suit it may part of doing business so to speak
But once again the main thing you must consider is, can I even collect on the judgment? Or are you throwing good money after bad

Get an attorney.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
