You really want one with a decent track record, who istruthful, efficient, and wins cases. You need to have assurance that they will defend you correctly and bill you reasonably for their products and services.

Divorce Lawyer Advice?
I Have Decided That When I Go To College I Am Going To Go Into Law School And Become A Divorce Attorney But My Family Is Telling Me I Should Also Do Another Type Of Law...Is This True? Or Should I Just Stay With The One? And I Was Thinking About Minoring In Advertising Is This A Good Idea?
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.
Absolute "best" law schools are Yale and Harvard.
Best undergraduate majors: Business Admininstration and/or Accounting.
Best personality qualities? Ability to BS and look for work.
Tips? Change your idea of a career path ASAP!!! You WON'T be making $110,000 a year. Unless you have a mommy or a daddy who are already a partner at a law firm. As an attorney, according to one of the latest polls, you'll be making more like $40,000/yr - remember: lawyers have to pay for: office overhead, cost of living (the bigger the city, the higher your cost of living), and the crushing law school debt.
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. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! 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....
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!!!<<<< School loans are "non-dischargeable debts" - which means you cannot just write them off in bankruptcies (except in extremely rare cases).
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. Law schools are cash cows.
>>>>>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.
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.
(This is based on my current knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Please be careful and do your research.<<< You DID ask the question here on Y/A. I am just trying to help you.)

How Much Do Attorneys Who Work In Big Law Firms Make In The Uae?
This depends entirely on the law firm. The big US firms (Latham & Watkins, Gibson Dunn, Shearman & Sterling) pay NY rates, tax-free (although if you are a US citizen then US taxes are unavoidable). "Mid-Atlantic" firms (such as King & Spalding) generally pay slightly better than their English competitors, but salary levels are not quite as prescriptive as with the firms mentioned above. In addition, a small number of firms pay an additional housing allowance for Abu Dhabi, as historically housing has been more expensive there. It should be noted that this is changing as more projects are handed over and supply is increasing (particularly in off-island developments).
UK firms tend to be quite conservative and only occasionally look at non-UK-qualified lawyers (and usually Canadians/Australians before Americans, it must be said). Salaries for lawyers generally are generous - if you let me know you qualification level I can give you a more specific answer.
Is An Attorney-Negotiated Settlement Considered &Quot;Litigation&Quot;?
Is A Legal Settlement Negotiated Between Parties By An Attorney Considered An Act Of &Quot;Litigation&Quot;, Or Does &Quot;Litigation&Quot; Only Refer To A Case That Has Been Brought To Court As A Lawsuit?
No. Your example would be considered mediation, arbitration, or some other form of alternative dispute resolution.
Litigation only happens in the courtroom.
Any One Know Price Of A Traffic Lawyer For Speeding Ticket At Marion County, South Carolina?
Unless you have a serious charge and some really extenuating circumstances that would enable you to get out of the ticket, you don't need an attorney for a traffic ticket.
No one knows what SC attorneys charge. (There's no such thing as a "traffic lawyer.") I recommend you contact the SC Bar for information/referrals.
