The first step is to generate a set of the lawyers which can be listed in your neighborhood focusing on your needs. While you are which makes this list you ought to only include those that you have a great vibe about according to their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by using a while evaluating their site. There you should certainly find the number of years they have been practicing and some general information regarding their success rates. At this time your list should have shrunken further to the people which you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate volume of experience. You need to then take time to check out independent reviews of each and every attorney. Be sure to read the reviews rather than just counting on their overall rating.

Should This Judge Recuse Himself?
Should This Judge Recused Himself From This Case, We Haven'T Been Able To Hire A Local Attorney For This Same Reason. They Belong To The Same Local Bar Association They And Their Wives Socialize With The Plaintiff This Attorney Is The Treasurer Of This Bar Association. Do I Have The Right To Ask This Judge To Recuse Under These Circumstaces.
All judges are themselves attorneys and belong to the states bar association. If the judge has a close direct personal relationship with the plaintiff then you do have the right to have your attorney to ask him to recuse himself based on that. A better approach would most likely be to ask for a roaming judge who does not directly know the plaintiff. Most judges however can keep their personal lives apart from the courtroom and not be influenced and rule fairly. If you do not have a attorney when court happens ask for a continuance to obatin a attorney and explain the problem you are having to him most judges will give you alot of ground when you do not have a attorney present when talking to them as far as court proceedures and rules. Consider also obatining a attorney from another county to assist you or a attorney referal service which most phone books have listed in them under the attorney listings.

How To Become A Family Lawyer?
I Want To Become A Lawyer But Under Family Law. So How Would I Go To School And What Would I Study So I Could Become That
In the USA, to become a Lawyer, IF you go to school full-time:
1) Bachelor's degree - four years from a traditional college/university.
2) Study for LSAT. Take LSAT.
3) Law school - three MORE years.
4) Study for Bar Exam. Take Bar Exam in the state where you want to practice.
5) Pass the Character and Fitness Evaluation. Then you can practice Law.
6) You still have to take additional classes/seminars/legal training etc. each year to obtain CEUs to keep your license to practice Law. (You aren't done with school!!)
7) In many states there are even laws requiring a certain percentage of your legal work to be "pro bono" (free of charge) for some charitable purpose.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions. But knowing what your expectations are, and then comparing them to the realities will help you make educated decisions.
There are more attorneys than there are legal employment positions. We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing: it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Obviously, economic conditions affect the number of jobs available. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in this vocational field.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons: We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead - they aren't hiring legal staff. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software/law books in order to get legal work done without the expense of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc) For example: Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is a vastly overrated career - especially by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law. Law is a more demanding profession than most people realize. It is not like what you see on TV.
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!!<<<
Even if you do finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), 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 in TODAY's job market!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE #1 MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the BOGUS, INFLATED law school salary/job stats given out by >law schools< (AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor)!!***<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then:
**Check out these websites:
(A link to a website does not constitute endorsement.)
**do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law.
**Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
**Do "informational interviews" with several attorneys from at least two or three different firms. (You can find how to do "informational interviews" from your local Public Library - ask the Librarian.) Interviewing attorneys is a time-efficient and extremely beneficial way of discovering if law is the right vocational field for you. Talk to a few Human Resource Managers who work at employers in the field of Law. Ask them what their opinion is on future job availability for the field of Law. Ask them if they have any current open positions. Ask them how many resumes they receive when they advertise ONE open position. (It is ususally approximately 300 resumes are received for each open position advertised.) If you personally know a practicing lawyer, set up a time with them to do an "informational interview" to ask them about their career. Talk to many attorneys. Better yet, spend an entire day with one of them.
**Talk to recent law graduates. Ask them what success they are having finding employment opportunities. <<<<<
Read 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 the 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 fields of: >>>Healthcare<<<, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.

DWI is a hot button issue ... and an easy case for the prosecutor's office to win. They have almost no reason to play games or make a deal.
Chance of a deal ... very slim. Add your friend's case ... showing that you allowed a minor to possess alcohol and drug paraphernalia, and it does nothing to improve your chances of a deal.
While it's probably not an automatic dis-qualifier ... you will be going up against candidates that do not have a criminal record.
Same advice I give anyone.hire a lawyer that specializes in DWI defense and see what they can do to minimize the consequences. Who knows .. you might get lucky.
Pregnant At Work, I Need Legal Advice?
I'M Pregnant And I'Ve Had To Take Some Sick Days; Today I Have A Fever, I'M Throwing Up (I Haven'T Had Morning Sickness For A While), And I'M So Tired That I Can Barely Stand Up. My Work Wouldn'T Let Me Go Home; They Gave Me Such Hell That I'M Afraid For My Job. Someone Please Tell Me What My Rights Are?
Most businesses have information on the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) on their bulletin board. I believe it is required by law to post this information. You can find out your rights by simply reading the poster. Also, there may be some help from the Americans with Disablities Act (ADA). If you have a union, you may have additional safeguards.
Some lawyers will give you a free initial consultation, or if you can afford it an initial consultation for a flat $50 - $100. If at all possible, ask around for a good lawyer. People tend to have a good feel for whether they have received good representation, A cheap lawyer can easily cost you more than an expensive one. As much as I dislike lawyers, sometimes you just plain need professional advice. This lets you know if you have a legal remedy should they do something unethical, the best way to document it, and how long you have to make a claim or file paperwork. This is apparently one of those times you need a real lawyer.
For now, document everything you think may be of interest. How people say things to you, names, dates, witnesses, situations, and so on. Take notes at least.
Also, make sure you keep up with your medical care. What may be nothing for you, may be more serious for your 'little one'. Pregnancy means you're taking care of two people's health. By the way, congratulations.
