Law And Becoming A Lawyer?
I'M Curious About Becoming A Lawyer But I Have No Idea What They Have To Do Really. What Do They Major In?
I Also Would Like To Know A Little About Different Types Of Lawyers. I Don'T Know If I'D Be Good At Being A Trial Lawyer, But Was Wondering About Other Types Of Lawyers And What They Have To Do?
There are as many different types of lawyers as there are different types of people. When I was in law school, the other students came from very diverse backgrounds and had majored in everything from business to nursing. The major is not so important, but you should have good academic credentials in your undergraduate work. To get through law school, you have to do a lot of reading. That pretty much continues after law school. You can go into either criminal or civil law. You can work for the government or for a private company or a law firm. Many types of civil law don't require any trial work. For example, you can specialize in probate law (writing up wills and trusts for clients) or handle real estate closings, and in both cases you may never have to go to court. Most people who go to law school don't know in advance what kind of lawyer they will end up as. You may find that you would make an awesome trial lawyer, even if you don't think so now.
Where Can I Get Free Legal Advice From A Lawyer Regarding Ca Labor Law Violations?
Where Can I Find A Good Source In Order To Find A Credible Lawyer Which Can Offer Free Legal Advice? A Group Of Us At A Certain Company Might Have A Valid Legal Case Against Our Employer, And We'Re Looking To Pursue This If Its Justifiable.
After Discussing The Specific Details With Several Individuals (Including Personnel At Edd) I'Ve Been Advised To Speak To A Lawyer And Possibly Proceed With Legal Action Against My Former Employer.
Workplace Issues Past* & Present:
1. Sexual Harassment*
2. Racial Harassment*
3. &Quot;Equal Pay For Equal Work&Quot; Violations.
4. After Speaking To Hr, Nothing Was Done About Points #1 & #2 For Several Months...
5. ...Except For The Bullying & Vindictive Retaliation From A Supervisor After I Spoke Up Against Points #1 & #2.
6. Controlling, Manipulative Work Environment (Specifically Management) That Is Threatening/Threatens Our Career Growth. Basically We Fear Industry Retaliation Since Its A &Quot;Small&Quot; Industry.
I'D Love To Discuss The Details With A Lawyer, But Where Should I Begin?
Unfortunately, we can't believe that you have been advised to seek legal advice at this point.
A lawyer can't help you with most of these issues:
1. Sexual Harassment = you need to get a right to sue letter from the EEOC or DLSE before a legitimate lawyer will discuss a case.
2. Racial harassment = you need a right to sue letter from the EEOC or DLSE before a legitimate lawyer will discuss a case
YOU CANNOT SUE WITHOUT A RIGHT TO SUE LETTER
3. Equal pay for equal work = means that the ONLY reason you were paid less is because of your gender. Can you prove that = that the others = didn't have more education, more experience, were better interviewers, better negotiators, were getting paid more at a previous employer so the company matched salary? If just one of these items occurred or a gazillion of other things that made you not equal, you aren't equal.
4. Perfect go to the EEOC or DLSE and get your case validated. Once you have right to sue documentation, you won't have problems finding an attorney.
5. don't know what this is suppose to mean.
6. Bosses are allowed to be jerks, that's not illegal. Almost all instances that were employees think they have workplace harassment, it's not in the eyes of the law.
How Much Public Speaking In Practicing Law?
I Am Interested In Pursuing A Career In Law But Am Not A Good Public Speaker. Does Every Form Of Law Practice Involve A Lot Of Public Speaking? What Would Be Good Areas To Pursue If I Want A Law Career But Not With A Lot Of Public Speaking?
Rather then advise you to consider studying this or that type of Law, I suggest you take a step back from that decision and consider the Probability, not Possibility, that you can become a good Public Speaker. I know from 1st hand empirical experience that it can be accomplished. I accomplished it in the early stage of my career in Media, and most recently with students at some Los Angeles area colleges. It's not as difficult as some would have you believe and consider this: Why would you avoid a particular type of Law, where you might really excel and make a genuine contribution, simply because you haven't yet learned to improve your public speaking skills? Speaking is learnable. It's not difficult for most people. It doesn't take forever to improve. And it doesn't cost a fortune.
The internet is overflowing with Public Speaking guru's and some of them are capable I'm sure, but there is also a plethora of bad advice. My best recommendation is to physically get involved in Speaking. Yes it seems scary at first, but that dissipates quickly. Books, DVD's, and Cd's are NOT the best way to learn. They may give you ideas for later improvement, but Nothing beats getting in front of a supportive group or class and Speaking. It really does work.
I have seen several positive comments regarding Toastmasters groups. You might locate one locally. While I visited several, I never joined, but they do enjoy a good reputation. I have a video blog at: www.tomjdolan.com which might help you. I have nothing to sell you but the information is valid. It's also available on iTunes in several countries. I haven't added a show since March, but,
I've recently relocated to Tokyo from Los Angeles, and I'll be introducing a new way to approach Public Speaking to an international audience which you might find interesting. I'll have my 1st new show up in about 2 weeks. In the meantime, I advise you to take a deep breath, consider this Law decision with a broad view, and don't predicate your choice based on your Public Speaking ability at this moment.
The better decision you make, the more the rest of us benefit. Good Luck.
What Happens When Ex Appeals Judges Decision In Family Law Case?
Me And My Ex Got Divorced In February. He Already Tried To Modify The Final Decree...Child Support, Visitation, And Transportation. The Judge Heard His Plead And Denied Anything Be Changed Because He Had Not Had A Substantial Change Since The Decree Was Signed. He Is Now Appealing That Judges Deicison, And I Was Going To See If Anyone Knew How The Appeal Process Worked..Or Whats Going To Happen Now. Thanks!
It depends on your state, but generally, he will file an appeal with the Court of Appeals. Depending on what and how he is appealing, the Court of Appeals will probably review what the judge did for "abuse of discretion." Essentially, they are trying to determine if there was no reasonable basis for the judge to make the decision he made . . . this is generally pretty tough to do. There is another standard of review: de novo - which means the Court of Appeals looks at absolutely everything that was before the original judge.
You should not expect a quick decision. This is a VERY slow process. He will file his motion through his attorney. You will file your reply through your lawyer. Then he can file another written response. The Court can decide the case based on the paper work OR can schedule your case for oral arguments. The Court will issue a written decision - and THIS also takes a bit of time.
The last case I had that went through the appeals process involved a case that was decided by the lower court's judge in January 2008. The other side appealed. I filed my reply brief in August 2008. They filed their final response in September. The decision was made in November 2008. (Then it got appealed to the state Supreme Court - so that literally took us through to June 2009 until the state S.C. denied the appeal.)

Then I Got Abusive Messages From What Turned Out To Be His Girlfriend And It Ended In Her Saying That She Has Sent The Photo To All Her Phone Contacts, All His Contacts And Will Post Copies Of The Photo'S All Around My Home Town.
I Am So Upset And Humiliated And Don'T Know What To Do, The Whole Thing Was Completely Out Of Character For Me, I Have Young Children And I Feel Completely Distraught. Is There Anything I Can Do Legally To Stop Her?
1. Keep all the proof you can get.
2. Spend about $20 and go see Legal Aid.
3. Never do a dumb thing like that again. In this day & age of modern technology.... things go viral very quickly. Just ask Paris Hilton.
