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.

Need Legal Help, Looking For Good Employment Law Attorney!?
Hey Does Anyone Know Of A Really Good Employment Law Attorney In The Milwaukee Or West Bend Area? Looking For One To Hear Story At No Charge And Then Decide If It Is A Good Case To Take On.
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 Employment Law for employEES. (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? (per hour)
- 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.)
Website Purchase Legal Question?
So I Am Purchasing A Website ( Domain Name+Website+All The Database Assosiated With It), The Guy Selling It Wants Me To Write Up A Contract Specifically Putting A (Indemnification Clause Statement On It), Since I An Not Very Good With Legal Stuff I Was Wondering If I Put That There, If In The Past The Guy Had Any Legal Issue With The Site ( Ex. Law Suits, Owes Money To Someones Or Any Legal Stuff) Would That Means I Would Be Responsible For It After I Buy The Site ? Or Does It Mean After Sale He Is Not Responsible For Anything , I Basically Want To Make Sure That Won'T Hurt Me In Any Way. Please Help. Thanks
When making any business transaction, hire an attorney to draw up the contract. Yes, it may cost you a few hundred bucks, but in the long run, it will save you thousands in litigation costs should any issues arise.
Indemnification clauses are standard in any business purchase agreement, but so are representations and warranties. Yes, you should indemnify the previous owner of any legal issues that arise out of the normal course of business, and you should be responsible for those events. However, the current owner should warranty that he ran the site legally under his ownership and that there is not outstanding litigation (or disclose the outstanding litigation). Your indemnification should be very specific as to what you are holding the previous owner harmless for. It should exclude any issues that arise from his past illegal activities or from his fraud. A properly worded and well thought out indemnification clause should accomplish this - but, again, you need an attorney to verify that it does so under the laws of your state.
As you can see, this is a very complicated legal issue and should be handled by an attorney. Go see an attorney. If you want to save a few bucks, draft the agreement, but have an attorney review it. An improperly drafted agreement could end up being voided in whole or part - which means that any protections that it offered you could be gone just because it wasn't worded properly!

Everyone Is Telling Me It Isn'T Illegal For A Cop To Stick His Foot In The Door To Keep You From Closing It, But My Lawyer Got A Search?
Suppressed For That Very Reason. My Question Is, Even Though All The Charges Against Me Went Away, Why Can'T I Sue The Officer For Clearly Violating My 4Th Amendment Rights And Trashing My House.
He Basically Showed Up For &Quot;Loud Noise&Quot; And When Opened The Door He Stuck His Foot In So I Couldn'T Close It, Then When I Stepped Away To Get My Id He Opened The Door And Claimed Drugs Were In Plain Sight. Turns Out, That Isn'T Legal... Shouldn'T He Know That And Isn'T That Negligent On His Part?
You have to give us more information before making such a judgement.
The officer could have been acting under the best information at the time.
While that action may be questioned in court later, it may not be actionable now.
For example, if a police officer is searching a burning home for victims and comes across a stash of drugs, that evidence may be suppressed as it was obtained out of the scope of the officers actions without a warrant.
Now, you are contemplating civil actions and the rules are different there. The actions the office used could be legal in civil case and HIS subsequent actions could be seen as a reasonable response per department policy.
However, if you have 7-10 grand to retain a lawyer you can start a civil proceeding IF you have actual damages you can show. It will be 5 or so years before the case can go to trial, but if you have the money and time, good luck.
What Should I Know About Intellectual Property Law Career?
I'M Graduating This Spring And After Working For Couple Of Years I May Apply For Llm. I'M Not Very Interested In Commercial Law And Civil Law.Although I Enjoy Criminal Law I Cant See Myself Doing It My Whole Life. So Would I Enjoy Intellectual Property Law? Its Too Late To Get That Course In School Since It Only Opens In Fall Semester.
Intellectual property law would definitely have you working with a different type of client than some of the other areas of law -- creative artists, musicians, designers, inventors... the nuances between fair use and infringement alone are fascinating! I would highly recommend taking some type of class on it, or even buying a book and educating yourself, to get a feel for the scope of intellectual property law. You might like it!
Good luck :)
Researching An Attorney?
Is There A Way That I Can Research The Record Of An Attorney? I Need To Find A Good One In A Different County Than I Live And Was Wondering If There Is A Website That Has Reviews Or Qualifications Of Lawyers?
Unless someone in your area has created such a website, it's not likely. You can probably check your State Bar website to get some basic information and see if the lawyer has been subject to disciplinary measures by the Bar. Attorney directories will tell you how long the attorney has been practicing, what law school they went to, what type of law they practice, etc. Other than that, it usually takes asking people who know or have used the attorney. You can also "interview" an attorney in your initial consultation before deciding whether to retain him/her.
Are There No Drinking And Driving Laws In Mexico?
I Was Watching A Documentary And One Of The Guys Interviewed Was Sipping A Beer While Driving. That'S Okay There?
The law and how the law is enforced can be different.
In the Yucatan I have seen divers drinking beer but the law does not permit this. In fact drinking and diving laws are more strict here than most places. There is no allowance for any amount of blood alcohol content. Not 0.05 or 0.08 it's 0.00. Anything more than 0.00 and you are subject to fines (for drinking and driving) or if the police determine that you are drunk driving then it's jail time.
That being said, the law hasn't been very well enforced in the past. The state of Yucatan has really only made a serious effort to stop drinking and driving in the last couple of years.
