What Does A Family Attorney Actually Do?
I Want To Be A Lawyer When I Grow Up. I Don'T Know If I Can Handle The Pressure Of A Murder Case. Yeah I Know Lawyers Are Pressured In All Types Of Cases. I Want To Work With Families. I Want To Help Parents Get Their Kids And Make Sure They Have A Fair Share On Weeks And Weekends. I Want To Settle Out Divorces. I Think Divorce Is A Horrible Thing To Happen To A Family. I Have A Lot Of Friends Whose Parents Are Divorced And It Makes Me Sad To Hear Them Wish Either Parent Was Around. Most Of Them Aren'T Because Of Domestic/Child Abuse, The Marriage Just Didn'T Work Out Anymore. But If It Was Because Of Domestic/Child Abuse I Would Want To Handle That Too.
Is There A Specific Attorney Name Or Is It Just A Family Attorney. Also Is Their Pay Just As Good? Will A Afford A Benz? Lol
First of all, very few lawyers represent people charged with murder. So unless you plan to become a high powered defense attorney and take on big bear cases like that you will never even touch a murder case in your entire career, even as a criminal defense attorney.
And to be honest, I actually believed that criminal defense clients were easier to deal with than family law clients. Criminal law clients were always much more appreciative, whereas a lot of nasty divorce case clients are so jaded by their love gone sour dispute, that they are unreasonable and difficult to reason with. Many will just want to litigate forever and nit pick every little thing just to try and punish their ex. This also harms their children, if they have any, and they get caught in the middle. But because they are so jaded, they don't even think about that, and don't want to listen to anybody's advice to knock it off. And it is not like the only lawyers are criminal defense or family law attorneys. There are a ton of different practice areas you could go into other than those.
And family attorneys do not represent people for domestic child abuse. If you wanted to do that, you would be a criminal prosecutor, because child abuse is a crime. If you choose to become a criminal prosecutor, you are a state employee, you do not get to pick your cases. They are assigned to you, although you can get into a niche, and they may assign you primarily certain types of cases. You also cannot do any legal work on the side if you are a prosecutor. If a prosecutor did that, they could be disbarred. So you would have to pick and choose which one you would rather, and if you choose to be a prosecutor, you got to be hired by a DA's office. DA positions have actually become very competitive to get these days, so that isn't a for sure bet, but you can increase the likelihood by doing internships, and working in the courthouse and try to network, etc.
As far as I know, family law salaries can vary significantly depending on how hard you work, how many clients you have, possibly how wealthy they are, and thus how much they are willing to pay for your services, but it all depends, like most areas of law.

I Need Help With Legal Advice.?
My Fiances Ex Wrote Bad Checks And Signed His Name And Now He Is Being Prosecuted For It. We Went To The Place Where The Checs Were Written,With The Advice Of His Attorney, And The Guy Said If We Paid Him Back He Would Wite A Writ And Contact The Prosecuting Attorney,I Believe To Drop The Charges. If He Does This Is It Over Or Can The Attorney Go On Prosecuting Him Without A Plaintiff? Please Someone Help Me.
Was the account joint or individual? If joint he would also be liable. If it was a single name account, then he could prosecute with forgery charges. If these were to a store, whose I.D. is on the checks for having negotiated them? If, for example, it was a retail store and it is Linda's I.D., and a single name account in the name of Tom.... it 1) shows that the store accepted the check from a third party and 2) bolsters the cause of action against the ex..
Forgery is a felony. You have tremendous leverage over the ex!
Questions About Lawyers..?
I'M A 9Th Grader, I Work Very Hard In School. Next Year I Will Be Taking Business Law And Criminal Justice Class. I Really Like To Prove A Point And Think Logically In Order To Make My Point Clear. I Was Wondering How Much It Would Cost Me To Become A Lawyer? Like Bar Exams And Stuff Like That. I Live In Ny But I Was Planning On Going To Mcgill In Montreal. What Are Some Good Law Schools In Canada And The U.S? And How Much Do Lawyers Make ? Thank You For Your Answers And Your Time.
To become a lawyer in the United States (I have no idea about Canada), you will need to do the following:
(1) Graduate from High School with a good GPA.
(2) Take the SAT or ACT and do well in order to get into a good college.
(3) Go to college, graduate with a Bachelor's degree and maintain a decent GPA. The cost of this will vary from school to school. State schools are typically much cheaper, but they are harder to get into. Tuition at state schools will likely be around $8,000 per year (4 years, so probably $36,000). If you work during school you can probably graduate debt free, but you will have a harder time maintaining a good GPA.
(4) Take the LSAT, and do well. The LSAT is the law school entrance exam. You will need to score in the top third of all LSAT takers, at least, to have any decent options. If you are in the top half, you could probably get into a Tier 4 law school (expensive, but an ABA approved education, at least).
(5) Go to an ABA approved Law School -- again, state schools will be much cheaper, but are typically very hard to get into. A state school will probably have tuition around $18,000 per year. Law school is usually 3 years. At a state school, this means $54,000 in tuition. If you don't work during school, you will need to borrow living expenses for the 3 years, which will probably be around $40,000, depending on the location.
So, excluding the cost of getting your bachelor's degree (assuming you got it for free), you are looking at paying $94,000 to get a law degree. If you buy a bar preparation course, that is an additional $4,000, about, and then the bar itself costs about $1,000 (but varies depending on the state you are taking it in). So, your total price to get licensed would be $95,000.
Most people (who don't have wealthy families) pay for this via student loans.
If you go to a school that is not a state school, your tuition will likely be at least $30,000 per year, or $90,000 to graduate, then add the $40,000 for living expenses, and the $5,000 for the bar prep and bar exam. So, if you go to a private law school, you are looking at $135,000 to graduate from law school (again, this does not include getting a Bachelor's degree).
These prices are in today's dollars. By the time you are ready for law school, the prices will likely have gone up.
It is a long road, but it is worth it. Being a lawyer can be a very rewarding career. You can do a lot of good for many people, and make decent money.
Jobs for lawyers right now are not very available. The economy was hit, and lawyers were hit very hard.
New lawyers will probably be making $60,000 per year at the moment.
However, pay does rise over time beyond what most other jobs do, well into the six figures if you are good.

I Live In Miami Dade And I Recieved Over A Span Of 2 Months 3 Driving With Suspended Licese Citations...Am I Better Off Just Paying A Lawyer To Handle The Court Cases For Me , Or Should I Just Go Into Court Representing Myself?
if you are fool enough to miss the point after the first ticket you are probably fool enough to fight it still. why waste your money on a lawyer or waste your time fighting it?
