Which Us Law Firms Have The Top Ranked Copyright/ Software Litigation Departments?
The law firms aren't ranked in that way by anyone objective.
However, many firms have excellent litigation departments. Morrison & Foerster has a big presence in Silicon Valley. Coudert Brothers also has a strong reputation in the field.
A caution, though. Big firms charge big fees, and are less likely to take cases on a contingent fee basis.
Attorney Help...In Need A Family Law Attorney.?
Does Anyone Happen To Know Of A Good Family Law Attorney That Offers Flat/Fixed Fee Serving The Area Of Los Angeles, Ca.
I'm sorry but I don't know of any family law attorneys anywhere in the US who routinely offer flat fee services. The only exception might be if you only want to hire the attorney for a single motion. But if you are talking about a divorce and/or custody dispute, this just would not be cost effective for any attorney.

I Want To Become A Corporate Lawyer. What Courses Should I Take In My Undergrad?
My Plan Is To Attend The University Of Alberta. As You May Already Know, It Is Not Written In Stone Which Courses You Take In Your Undergrad. However, I Am Planning In Enrolling In The Bachelor Of Commerce Program With A Major In Business Economics & Law. After This 5 Year Program, I Will Be Taking A 3 Year Program With Studies In Law Which Will Pretain To Being A Corporate Lawyer.
Am I Making A Good Choice? Please Give Me Your Opinion.
Honestly, it doesn't really matter what courses you take to get yourself to law school. Sure, if you want to be a corporate lawyer, having a basic working knowledge of that world will help, but it's not necessary.
For example, I've worked in commercial litigation for three years, and I have a BA in Philosophy, and no formal training in the business world. On the other hand, I'm (a) a pretty good attorney, and (b) very good with contracts. I can assure you, I didn't know the first thing about contracts or property (real & intangible) before I got to law school.
On the other hand, my undergraduate degree did prepare me for law school, because I learned how to think in an organized manner, and to look at problems from more than one or two vantages.
As a side note, many law schools look for nontraditional majors (music, math, arts, the sciences) in their applicants; if you have a love/aptitude for any of these fields, you might want to consider some coursework in that direction. If nothing else, you'll enjoy your time in college more if you're studying something you truly love.
How To File For Divorce Without Attorney.?
Been Separated Over A Year. Wife Moved And Left No Forwarding Address Nor Phone No. I Have Forms And Need To Know What Procedures To Follow To Obtain Divorce.
Depending on how simple your divorce is (kids, no kids, etc), you can go to an attorney for a 1 hour appointment and they can help you complete the paperwork and give you instructions on how to file it. It can cost around $200 bucks for the hour. Just make sure to write down all your questions to make sure you get all the info you need during your hour. I found it to be well worth the cost. My appointment went just over an hour but the attorney was nice and didn't charge me extra. He also just did the forms for me while I was in the office and emailed them to me.
What Types Of Lawyers Are There? (Full Details Please)?
I Know I Want To Do Criminal Justice Later On In Life. Now What Type Of Lawyers Are In That Field? Like Prosecutors??? And So Forth What Others Are There? Also Jurisdiction And Just What Are More Type Of Lawyers Are There? What Would You Call Them? And What Do They Do? I Want To Be A Full Time Lawyer That Does Real Cases And Performs In A Courtroom, A Private Lawyer Though. One That Works With One Party At A Time. Prosecution Is Something That I'm Looking Into, So What Would You Call That? What Type Of Lawyer Is That?
Prosecutors work for the government, they are never private.
There are Federal prosecutors, State prosecutors, County prosecutors, and so on.
There are also specialized prosecutors for specific areas. For example, the prosecutors for the Federal Trade Commission go after white collar crime.
Being a prosecutor IS NOT like it is on TV. You spend far more time outside of a courtroom than inside one. It's a lot of very depressing work and the pay is absolutely terrible.
Almost no lawyers work with one party at a time. Most prosecutors can barely keep track of all of their cases.
Regarding your correction:
In the US, the words "lawyer" and "attorney" are pretty much interchangable.
For defense attorneys you have a few options:
1. work for the government (public defender) - you represent poor clients that cannot afford an attorney. I did this work for 5 years and it is very very difficult and depressing, but when you have a success it makes it all worthwhile.
2. Work for a firm (associate or partner). There are several firms that specialize in criminal law. However, I can't think of any that specifically go after "violent" crime cases. There would be very little money in it, unless you somehow fiind a niche law firm that defends rich violent offenders. Not common at all. The firm I work for has a division for white collar crime, but no one here would touch violent crimes with a ten foot pole.
3. Work on your own (solo practitioner). Hang up a shingle and have your own office. You'd have to get the clients yourself, meaning you would have to go down to the jails and hand out your card. It takes a particular type of "tough cookie" to go this route. It can also be very dangerous. Again, I doubt there is much money in it.
