Child Custody Attorney In Akron Ohio?
Hello There. I Didn't Know If Anyone Was Near The Akron Ohio Area, And Could Help With A Child Custody Attorney In Which They Have Dealt With. I Know This Is A Rough Process, So I'm Hoping To Find A Great Attorney.
Many Thanks In Advance!
Please, please PLEASE listen to me and get a Fathers Rights Attorney. You will regret it if you don't.
My husband is from Dayton, OH (I don't know how close that is to Akron) and he used Trisha Duff. DON'T USE HER!! She was terrible and didn't even try to get him custody. She told him that just concentrating on calculating child support would be best for him. Not surprisingly, he lost custody and wound up paying 800.00 a month to his ex in support.
We recently got a FATHER'S RIGHTS ATTORNEY, (Anne Catherine Harvey) and she's the bomb! We've had child support lowered, and she is working on getting us full custody.
I would suggest googling "rate a lawyer", and you will see a couple of sites come up where people have actually had attorneys and then wrote reviews about their experiences with the lawyers. You can search by city and type of lawyer that you want.
Like I said, you want a Fathers Rights Attorney. They are totally for the father and will get you custody if they can. Other family lawyers, like our first one, treat you like you are crazy for wanting custody and then act as if your the worst father ever when you ask about getting support lowered.
Get a fathers rights attorney and you won't regret it. Also if you google fathers rights, you will get a TON of tips for fathers that are in custody battles.
Attorney Overbilling - Probate Attorney - Estate Planning Attorney ?
Hi - Well It Seems We Got Burned By A Nice Attorney - He Said He Would Help Us Settle Our Mothers Estate And Now He Has Billed Us &Quot;Over&Quot; $12.000 Dollars Charging Us 295.00 Per Hour On A 25.000 Estate And His Job Is Not Yet Done - We Will Have Fire Him Today.
Question: What Could You Recommend .. Us To Do In Hiring Another Probate Attorney - Estate Planning
Attorney - And How We Can Protect Ourselves Against Law Firms Overbilling And Attorney Over Billing ? Thanks In Advance Just Want To Protect Others Before They Get What We Got A Bad Attorney.
What I would recommend in your case is to have a simple memorandum of agreement w/ the lawyer you intend to hire indicating a percentage (w/c you and your family will have to decide upon) of the estate's value as his professional fee. I would think 20% of this percentage could be his initial payment and balance payable upon completion of the entire work. It's a simple legal form w/c the lawyer of your choice could prepare or even you could do it. You could get a book on legal forms and presto! Just make sure you read closely the contents of the memorandum of agreement if cited lawyer were to prepare it.
You could probably ask around (say in reputable universities w/ fresh graduates who have just been sworn in as full-pledged lawyers) who are the bright and honest ones. Law professors could be a good source because they know their students and would only be too happy to help them start out in their profession. Since these new lawyers are young and idealistic and all enthusiastic, you may have a good chance of getting a much better deal than having to contend w/ the elderly "pirates" who don't usually do their homework and charge exhorbitant fees.
You even have the luxury of interviewing these young people and choosing the one you think is best!
You can catch the professors in the faculty rooms or get a listing from the university's information center and casually ask who among them are good and reliable.
Good luck and God bless!
How Much Do Court Provided Lawyers Cost?
For Driver'S License Issues In Ny
It depends on what the actual issue stopping it being issued is.
Court appointed lawyers are only available for criminal offenses, most traffic issues are not technically criminal unless you're looking at DUI's or you've killed someone in a way that the state is calling negligent. So if you're at the issue stage, you aren't in court, there's no more jury trial and therefore have no legal right to an attorney.
Your best bet is to head to legal aid and see if you can get one for a reduced cost. They usually use a sliding scale for cost based on your income and if they see this as a need rather than want. If you're 16 and don't have a job, good luck. But if you are 23 and a single mom, they'll probably help.
Hiring an attorney by your lonesome, which you may have better results with anyway, will cost from about $500 to $5000 depending on how complex your issues are. This is probably the best way to go. Start calling around and do the consultations. They're free and you'll know if you even have a case for appeal before hiring anyone. You also have more choice here about who you get. Some attorneys work better with certain types of people than others.
Do We Need To Hire A Real Estate Lawyer?
We Got The Approval Of Both The 1St And 2Nd Lender For The Purchase Of A Short Sale House As Is. The Closing Will Be February 5Th, 2013. Do We Need To Hire A Real Estate Lawyer? Please Help.
It might be money well spent. The lawyer will remind you that "as is" means that the seller might leave you with major repairs. If the sale takes 2 months, you have to protect yourself; check daily that there are no water leaks that flood the house.
Lenders will "lock" an interest rate for you. But usually for 30 days. If the short sale takes longer, will you still buy it if the rate goes up 2%. A lawyer might write something to protect you.
Otherwise, the short sale is not different from a normal sale. You pay your money and you get the keys.
Question For A &Quot;Corporate Paralegal&Quot;?
How Did You Break Into &Quot;Corporate Paralegal&Quot; And What Does Your Job Entail?
I Am A Paralegal For A Law Firm Specializing In Debt Collection (Yuck) When Looking For Jobs, The Perks To The Title Of &Quot;Corporate Paralegal&Quot; Seem Awesome, Salaries Up To 75K And Crazy Benefits...How Did You Do It, How Can I Break Into That Field I Only Have Experience In Debt Collection-3 Years
Corporate paralegals can work for law firms, but generally work for in-house legal departments of private companies. First things first, do you live in an area where a lot of private businesses - and preferably corporate offices/headquarters of private businesses - are located? This is where jobs of this type will most likely be.
Education and experience are your best path to obtaining a job as a corporate paralegal. Most companies that will pay salaries in the 75K range, especially those in big cities, will most likely be looking for a candidate with a bachelor's degree, an ABA approved paralegal certificate and several years of relevant experience.
Does the firm you work for practice any other types of law? Can you gain experience in document management, business law or commercial transactions? Can you offer to cross-train in another area at your firm to gain more experience? Can you volunteer for a legal aid agency to gain more experience? If you can learn employment, litigation, or intellectual property law, for example, you could use those skills to move on to an in-house job.
You say you currently work in debt collection so you will need to expand your knowledge base, but you may already have more skills than you realize. Think about what kind of tasks you currently perform. Do you prepare pleadings, perform research, or do any tasks that could be considered litigation? If so, then you may be able to segue (when the job market is better!) into an entry-level job with a private company and work your way up.
Another idea - try getting a job in a private company as an executive assistant or legal secretary. Believe it or not, sometimes these jobs actually pay more than paralegal salaries.
How Does Someone Locate A Lawyer Who Works On Retainer At A Reasonable Fee?
I Belong To A Legal Service Where I Get Legal Advice As Needed But This Is Not Adequate For My Needs. It Would Work Out Better If I Had An Atty I Can Call And Whom Could Have My Best Interest And Direct Me On Legal Issues As Needed. Is This Asking Too Much. Is This A High Price Service?
I don't honestly know the pricing on something like that, but there is a website you should check out, it's
what you do is you enter your information, name, phone number, email, etc, what state you're in and then you pick what category of law you are interested in. there is a space to type exactly what help you need, and then all attorney's who work in that area are sent your info, and then they contact you with pricing, and you can choose from there if you want to use one of those attorneys. it's important to put in the correct info as far as where you're located, and what exactly you want the attorney for so that they can find you the best matches...they even have a part where you pick the price range you'd like to go with. it's definitely worth checking out...after all, even if it doesn't help, you're no worse off than you are now.
