3 Strategies To Know You've Picked The Correct Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to endure a legal court system, specifically if you lack confidence with your legal team. Allow me to share three important strategies to understand that you've hired the best lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Form Of Case What the law states is normally tricky and this requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you want a legal professional, seek out individual who relates to the issue you're facing. Even though a relative or friend recommends you make use of a firm they know, should they don't use a focus that's similar to your case, keep looking. Whenever your attorney is surely an expert, especially in the difficulty you're facing, you know you've hired the right choice. 2. The Lawyer Includes A Winning Record Dependant upon the circumstances, it could be challenging to win an instance, especially if the team helping you has little to no experience. Look for practices that have won numerous cases that apply to yours. Even though this is no guarantee which you case is going to be won, it will give you a far greater shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In the event the attorney you've chosen takes time to hear your concerns and react to your inquiries, you've probably hired the best one. No matter how busy they can be or how small your concerns seem from their perspective, it's critical that they respond to you inside a caring and timely manner. From the purpose of view of a regular citizen who isn't informed about the judicial system, court cases may be pretty scary you want updates as well as think that you're area of the solution. Some attorneys are just considerably better to your case as opposed to others. Ensure you've hired the best team to your circumstances, to ensure that you can placed the matter behind you as quickly as possible. Faith within your legal representative is the first task to winning any case.

California Employment Law Question?
My Employer Converted Half Of Us From Salaried To Hourly. We Are Fairly Well Paid Computer Workers. The Employer Has Begun Docking Us If We Are Even 10 Seconds Late, Docking Us If We Leave A Minute Early, Making Us Use Sick Leave For Dental Appointments We Used To Go To During Lunch, Etc. However, This Same Employer Does Not Pay Us If We Start Work Early, Have To Stay Late, Or If We Attend Meetings During Our (Unpaid) Lunch Hour. There Is A Lot Of Pressure To Not Say Anything And Just &Quot;Be Glad We Have Jobs&Quot;. We Are In California. Is This Legal?
if you are hourly........................
when you are on the clock you are to be paid, however........
California does allow for a tardiness "penalty"..........
if you are more then a half hour late you are not paid for however long you are late but if you are late less then a half hour you can be penalized for a full 30 minutes.
see: California Labor Code 2928
your employer has the power and right to discipline you for poor performance for failing to complete your work within an assigned time frame............
but they still must pay you for that added time.
if you clock in early or stay late and you are an hourly employee then you must be paid for those hours.
as a computer technician you may be exempt from any overtime as hourly or salary if you met all the criteria as set forth by the department of labor.
this link will explain the exemption:
"Computer Employee Exemption
To qualify for the computer employee exemption, the following tests must be met:
• The employee must be compensated either on a salary or fee basis (as defined in the regulations) at a rate not less than $455 per week or, if compensated on an hourly basis, at a rate not less than $27.63 an hour;
• The employee must be employed as a computer systems analyst, computer programmer, software engineer or other similarly skilled worker in the computer field performing the duties described below;
• The employee’s primary duty must consist of:
1) The application of systems analysis techniques and procedures, including consulting with users, to determine hardware, software or system functional specifications;
2) The design, development, documentation, analysis, creation, testing or modification of computer systems or programs, including prototypes, based on and related to user or system design specifications;
3) The design, documentation, testing, creation or modification of computer programs related to machine operating systems; or
4) A combination of the aforementioned duties, the performance of which requires the same level of skills."
the use of sick time is a policy decision and not regulated by law
breaks can only be unpaid if no work takes place and the break must be at least 30 minutes. California strictly regulates breaks and rest periods and provides for punitive penalties if the employer fails to follow the laws.
California law on meal breaks:
California law on rest periods:
if you are in a "salary exempt" position then many of these laws are different.

Simplest And Easiest Way To Find Malpractice Attorney Which Can Work In More Than One State In Usa?
I Have Been Gathering Information About What Appears To Be Negligence And Malpractice Done On Family Member Currently In Hospital. It Is Not The Basic Wrong Medication_Which That Has Happened As Well_But Rather What Seems To Family As Systematic Abandonment Of Normal, Basic Nurse Supervision Of Patient In Charge, And Absolutely Cloudy (At Best) Information From Doctor Concerning Many Aspects Of Patient's Well Being. I Cannot Mention Words Such As "Prognosis" Or Even "Course Of Treatment" Because They Gave Up On Her Without Even Really Trying. And Have Repeatedly Tried To Sell Us Off On Just Letting Her Die.
Please, Since I Have So Much Information To Share With Someone Who Would Definetely Be Much More Knowledgeable On These Issues, And Knowing That Most Attorneys Would Not Even Start To Look At A Case Unless Person Goes Into An Agreement With Them. And Since I Cannot Affford To Keep Wasting Time, Mostly Because I Have To Be Much More Vigilant Of Her Condition Now That I Notice Less Care From Medical Professionals, Can Someone Please Tell Me Most Direct Way Possible To Find Law Firm Which Can Work Out Of My State If Necessary???
Sweets...don't shoot the messenger...but Malpractice is near impossible to prove. Don't believe me? Open your yellow pages, and look up lawyers. Now check out how many will even touch medical malpractice, much less specialize in it.
The list is SHORT.
Lawyers follow the money.
And if they aren't there, neither is a case.
Divorce Attorney Says Divorce Taking Long Because Of &Quot;Misnumbered Documents&Quot; Is This For Real?
We Signed All Documents October 15, 2007. It'S Now February 22, 2008!! Attorney Said That Its Taken So Long Because Previously Filed Docs Were Misnumbered/Out Of Order. What The Heck ?! Could This Be True? It'S An Uncontested No Fault Divorce!
My uncontested divorce took precisely 21 days from the time the docs were signed but I am sure this varies by state and even local court and we had no children. If you want the truth, it is probably your attorney's ineptitude causing it. I had a lousy attorney but fortunately hers was on top of things and got everything filed very timely. Assuming everything is negotiated, you might want to ditch the attorney, look into this yourself and save some money. You probably don't need an attorney to finish it for you at this point.
P.S. Be VERY careful of people who try to quote statistics in their advice, especially when they start citing church studies!!!!!
Can I Get A Lawyers Help From Il For A Pa Divorce?
I Was With My Wife For 16 Years And As Of 2007 Sept. We Have Not Lived Together We Lived In Pa At The Time. But At The Time Things Went To Hell She Just Asked Me To Leave And The Business We Had Closed Due To Finance. I Moved To Another State Il. Now This Month She Has Sent Me Papers From Pa To Go To Court For Spousal Support. When I Left There Was No Income Coming In She Let All Payment Go Let Both Houses Go And Ran Up All The Credit Cards To The End And Now She Wants Spousal Support. I Have Found A Job Here In Il And She Has One There. Since We Are Both Working Will She Get Spousal Support. Also Can I Get A Il Lawyer To Work On A Case From Pa.Help Im So Lost Also Last Thing We Found Out 3 Years After We Got Married My First Divorce Never Went Through Does This Make A Difference Even Though For 16 Years We Did Everything As Husband And Wife.Bought Houses Cars And Got Loans Together.We Have A Marriage License But Does It Make A Diff Since Im Not Legally Divorced From My First Wife
You need a lawyer. First it's a big deal that your first divorce never happened and therefore your 2nd marriage is illegal. Is PA a common law state? Only a few states do. Did you live in PA the whole time?
As for spousal support, if you make substantially more than she does, she may have a claim for it. Spousal support is granted when a family had a certain income and then with the separation, her income is substantially decreased. It is also awarded when the wife did not work to take care of the house/children as agreed to by the spouses. Now she will have a much harder time reentering the work force.
As for the payments, you would both have been responsible for the joint house to begin with. By leaving, you did not abandon all mortgage payments. Usually the asset is sold and the money split evenly. You need to prove that she maxed out the credit cards after you split and if it was not for money for the joint assets (upkeep on the house, children's tuition) you may not have to pay for that.
You need to get a lawyer in PA. As lawyers must pass an individual state bar, a lawyer in IL cannot represent you in PA.
I can't believe you knew for 13 years that your marriage was not valid and you did nothing to make it so. All the loans will be split (house, car, etc). You don't have a legal marriage license though--I'm not sure how you got it to begin with since they are suppose to check your divorce papers first. In order to a common law marriage not to be recognized, you must be clear that your intention was to not be married. It might be argued by a lawyer that since she KNEW that your marriage was illegal and invalid at 3 years into it and did nothing to ensure you fixed that problem, she was not intending to be married.
Is your divorce final now? If you are still not divorced from wife one, wife 2 cannot win b/c you could never have been married legally.
Usually if you filed jointly for so many years and lived as man and wife in a common law state, it would mean you were married. However if she makes more than you do or roughly the same, her claim for spousal support will be bogus. You didn't mention divorce papers but if you aren't divorced from her (assuming the marriage is ruled as valid) she can't get spousal support either since a spouse can't sue his/her spouse.
