This can make the procedure of finding one with significant amounts of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, when you follow the following it is possible to limit your search to the right one out of almost no time. The first task is to produce a selection of the lawyers which are listed in your neighborhood specializing in your needs. When you are which makes this list you must only include those that you may have an effective vibe about based on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down through taking some time evaluating their website. There you will be able to find the amount of years they are practicing and some general information about their success rates. At this stage your list should have shrunken further to those that you just felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate amount of experience.

Finally, you should talk to at the very least the past three lawyers that have the credentials you are searching for.

Can You Be Honest With Your Lawyer?
Say You Killed A Guy, And You Hire A Lawyer To Defend Yourself. If You Tell Your Lawyer The Truth, That You Are Guilty, Will They Still Protect You And Help You Come Up With A Story, Or Are They Obligated To Tell On You?
Thanks In Advance,
Your lawyer would do everything to protect your constitutional rights and make certain you received a fair trial.
If you confessed to your lawyer about a crime you had committed and the lawyer repeated that confession, that lawyer would be disbarred. (Meaning he would lose his license to practice law and would never be allowed to represent clients again.) Attorney/client privilege also means that an attorney can never be required to testify against his client.
An attorney who would help you "come up with a story" could also be disbarred. Attorneys are required to act with something called "candor to the tribunal." This means an attorney is not allowed to knowingly present testimony or evidence he knows is untrue.
This doesn't mean an attorney can't do some pretty interesting things with the case. But the focus would be on attacking the evidence and the police officers. (This worked rather well in the O.J. Simpson murder trial. The defense attorneys couldn't put O.J. on the witness stand, but they focused the defense on attacking the evidence and the credibility of the detectives.)
Child Support- Lawyers Fl And Il?
My Wife Has Not Received Child Support For Her Sons Bio-Father It Is Going On For 3 Or 4 Years. Is There A Group That Helps Go After The Father For Childsupport - Medical Expenses. My Wife Needs The Support To Send Her Son To An Adhd Camp This Summer. The Fathers Brother Is A Mayor Of A City In Illonios So We Think He Is Getting Around It By That Method.
There are some private groups out there that will assist your wife in obtaining child support however they are very expensive...taking up to 25% of the collection....I know the argument is "well I'm getting nothing now so 75% of something is better than nothing. These groups work aggressively for you however their informational sources and their ability to collect are far inferior to your state child support system.
The problem is that your wife needs to significantly 'jack up' her local child support agency. She does that by making contact with the director of the child support agency asking why she is not getting support from her ex, with the agency knowing where the ex is at. If she doesn't get satisfaction from the local director she needs to move on to the state director of child support services....write that person...detailing the issue and ask that person to respond within 30 days (they are required to respond under their federal mandate). If the response is not satisfactory at the state level then she needs to write her federal senator/congressperson.....they will send the letter down to the federal child support agency who will require the state to DO something.
The point here is that Child Support Services in this country is an entitltement....use it...do not accept NO for an answer...make Child Support Services explain everything they are doing. Your ex has rights that she is probably not aware of...it just takes a little nerve to DEMAND that Child Support Services perform.

Need Advice On Dismissing A Workers Comp Lawyer From Case?
After 2 Years Of Fighting Workers Comp In Wv, My Attorney Says Its Not Feasible For Her To Fight For My Medical. She Just Wants Money. I Have Two Treating Dr'S That Say I Have Crps And In Need Of Nerve Blocks Or Is Facing Surgery Again, I'Ve Had 3 Surgeries On One Arm. She Tells Me She Will Withdraw As Counsel If I Want Her To. Wc Is Stating I Have Reached My Mmi, Dr'S Disagree. How Do I Dismiss Her And Obtain New Attorney? Any Suggestions?
Your attorney is basically telling you she doesn't think you will win. You may or may not agree with her, but do respect her opinion. Simply accept her offer to withdraw from the case and request a copy of your records be transferred to the new lawyer you choose.
A new lawyer cannot discuss the facts of the case before they have those records (they ethically can't go on just your statements). However, you can interview them to find one who suits your personality without dealing in case specifics.
Finally, accept that the new lawyer may look at your records and provide the same recommendation as the old one.

Now I Would Like To Say That I Have Never Done This And I'M Never Planning On It, Just Wondering About Something. When A Driver Under The Influence Of Another Substance, Besides Alcohol (Lets Say Marijuana), Gets Pulled Over And Fails The Sobriety Test But Passes The Breath Test And The Officer Has Suspicion That The Operator Of The Motor Vehicle Is Under The Influence Of Ex. Pot, Can That Officer Give You A Blood Or Urine Test, And If You Fail How Can It Be Proven The Time Frame Under Which You Were Intoxicated?

DUI - Driving Under the Influence
Can be alcohol or any other intoxicant that influences your physical or mental abilities, ie, pot, pills, mushrooms, chemicals that are sniffed, snorted, chewed, injected or ingested. If you are under the influence, you are not "completely sober" you are DUI. If a lab test concludes you have something in your system, you will be charged.
I Need Help In Wording A Letter To Law Firms Offering My Services As A Non-Legal Office Volunteer.?
I Am Not An Attorney Or A Law Student. I Am Interested In Volunteering In A Firm'S Law Library Or Doing General Clerical Work Like Filing, Copying, Etc. To Whom Should I Address The Letter And How Should I Word It? Thank You For Any Tips!
Employers in the field of Law won't be interested if you don't have any legal background AT ALL. Employers in the field of Law don't have time to train you from square one.
Warning! Jobs in the field of Law are drying up FAST!! This is not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING vocational field. Many reasons. THE main reason?......We simply have WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals - we have a GLUT!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Regarding being a "non-legal office volunteer": Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law want employees with BACHELORS degrees. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams.
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, 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!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is SATURATED with WAY TOO MANY Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. AND the schools continue to recruit and churn out even MORE Legal Professionals.............
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.
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 200 law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients."
If you want a JOB when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the field of HEALTHCARE! <THIS is where the jobs are! and scholarships!
