How To Find Best Medical Malpractice Lawyer?
I'Ve A Quite Strong Medical Malpractice Case. It Will Be Large. Two Firms Have Expressed Interest From A Legal Match Posting, But The Firms Are A Distance Away. I Want A Local Firm. One Lawyer Is Also A Physician.
Is There Any More Efficient Way Than Sending A Case Summary To A List Of Local Law Firms?

Try calling your local Bar Association. They often have a referral servce to link you with the appropriate lawyer for your case. These lawyers often talk to you on the telephone for free, the first time.

How Can A Paralegal Specialize In Real Estate Or Probate Law?
I Have A 2 Year Degree In Paralegal Studies. What Are Some Good Steps To Take In Order To Specialize In Real Estate Or Probate Law?
The simple answer is to search for "paralegal" and "probate law" or "real estate" on the Internet, and dig up books at Amazon or some similar online resource. That's not going to get you the position you'd like to have, though.
Contact your school's councilor and some of your previous teachers - look up their office hours and drop in. Talk with them about law firms where you could spend some time as an intern. Find out names of alumni they think may be helpful, and contact them to get their input. Use the networks of your councilor(s), teachers, and any recommended alumni to begin building your own network.
Do some research online and at the local bar association about law firms or agencies in your area that specialize in those areas. Find out a little about the cases they've handled and the principal players involved. Contact them and ask if you can help with any pro-bono work they're doing. Do what you can to get face time with attorneys and make yourself known at appropriate law firms and the legal departments of title companies, banks, etc.
Stir the pot. In today's economy, simply sending resumes to anonymous post office boxes and responding to online web forms isn't going to get the job done.
Good luck with it.
What Is Family Law Like?
Are There Any Feel-Good Stories From Anyone Who Likes Their Practice? Thanks! : )
Family law is tough. These cases don't really "close" when children are involved, and they usually are. You have to be tough. Sometimes, when children are involved, you have to pick between two dysfunctional parents, which is the lesser of the two evils......... Most of the time, clients have a very difficult time paying their attorneys. Family law is tough.
The legal profession is dramatically changing and is in CRISIS!!! 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.....
Does My Son Need A Lawyer?
My Son'S Girlfriend Broke Up With Him After She Got Pregnant And He Is Heartbroken. He Wants To Experience Everything That She Is...Doctor Visits, Ultrasounds, Etc. And She Will Not Talk To Him Or Tell Him Why She No Longer Wants To See Him. This Is His First Child And My First Grandchild So I Am Not Happy About It Either But He Is 24 And Does Not Want Me To Get Involved. He Has As Much Right To Be A Part Of This Pregnancy As She Does. She Is 22 And Is Acting Very Immature. I Just Hate That He Has To Go Through This Heartache.
He has NO right to attend any doctor visits, ultrasounds, or even the birth. That would violate her privacy, and doctors are very strict about that. He can only attend upon her acceptance, period. No lawyer could ever convince a judge to violate her HIPAA protections.
Yes, you son needs a lawyer once the baby is born, to establish paternity and visitation rights .But until the baby is born, it's just her body, her privacy and her issue. You have no proof he's even the father yet.
I'm surprised some the female responders here are not aware of this fundamental right of her privacy.
Can Parents Be Turned In By Financial Aid Office Representatives For Going Against A Legal Document?
If Your Parent Doesn'T Pay In Child Support What They'Re Supposed To By The Separation Document Could A Financial Aid Representative Turn Them In Even If They Parents Are Okay With The Situation Despite The Legal Document?
this is going to depend on your state law
if the Fin Aid office is a mandatory reporter for child support obligations that are unpaid, then yes parent who is not paying (and against the court order) could get turned in
I would suggest it isn't highly likely, but slightly possible
otherwise they are not likely to get involved
Psych Case Study Retarded Family? Sterilization Laws?
Hey So I Need Some Help. I Learned About This Case Study In My Psych Class At The University, But I Cannot Recall Or Find Anything Bout It Online. Unfortunately I Looked Through My Notes And I Didn'T Write It Down. From What I Remember The Case Study Went Something Like This. A Family Somewhere In The Us (Don'T Remember Were) Were On Their 3Rd Or 4Th Generation Of Retarded Kids. So Everyone In The Family Was Retarded. And One Of The Women From The Most Recent Generation Was Also Pregnant. So It Became A Case Where The Government Said That It Was Ridiculous That They Had To Pay In Order To Take Care Of This Family That Continued To Have Mentally Retarded Kids. So In Order To Prevent More Mentally Retarded Children From Being Born A Law Was Passed That Made It Legal For The Government To Castrate Or Sterilize You If You Are Mentally Retarded. Now I'M Not 100% Sure On All The Details And That Is Why I'M Asking. Please Provide Me With A Link Or The Family Name Or The Law So I Can Look It Up. Sorry, It'S A Lil Bit Much To Read, But I'M Really Frustrated I Can'T Figure It Out. Thanks In Advance For All The Help.
Buck v. Bell (1927) was a Supreme Court ruling (a precedent, not a law) that led to the sterilization of some 65,000 people by 1979. The ruling (which pertains especially to people with an intellectual disability) has never been officially overruled, and was cited in a case as recently as 2001, Vaughn v. Ruoff, in which a social worker made sterilization a requirement for the return of children in state custody. (That case made it to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.)
