How To Start Your Own Law Firm?
How Do You Get Your Own Law Firm? When You First Get Out Of Law School Is It Easier To Just Work As An Individual Lawyer And Hire People Front There Or Should You Work For A Law Firm First? Can You Start One Right Away? How Much Money Does It Take?
A law firm is nothing more than a corporation like any other. File the appropriate papers with the state and federal governments and you're set to go.
You can start one right away, but you'll be looking at a LOT of overhead. You'll have to file the papers, get an office, buy furniture, buy computers, hire at least a secretary (unless you'll be doing that part of the job yourself), hire an accountant (unless, again, you're doing that part of the job). and office supplies, plus many other things.
It costs a lot of money to start a law firm.
Does Anyone Know A Good Place To Search For Jobs For Patent Attorneys?
I Will Be Taking The Patent Bar In May (And Hopefully Passing It) And I Would Like To Get An Early Start On My Job Search. I Currently Handle Litigation Work For A Boutique Maritime Firm In Lower Manhattan. I Have A Degree In Microbiology And Worked For Merck For Two Years After I Graduated From Undergrad. I'M Looking In The New York Area (Nyc Or Long Island). Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
Have you worked your established connections fully? For example, have you tried reconnecting with your Merck coworkers, regardless whether they are in the legal department? How about your schoolmates or professors who may be inventors? If nothing else, these acquaintances should be aware of any patent openings and/or resources at their own workplace.
After checking through the obvious resources such as hotjobs.com, monster.com, craigslist.org , it probably makes sense to target law firms over in-house positions. Since most in-house positions tend to be prosecution-focused and require a high degree of self-sufficiency, the odds of getting an in-house position are probably unfavorable for novice litigators. In addition, since law firms tend to work you harder, you tend to get efficient faster. This in turn will make you more marketable in the future.
In particular, you might want to focus your search on those partners whose practice may be in need of persons with your skills, regardless of the size of the firm for which the partners work. "Cold call" mailings sometimes generate additional leads. From your experience at Merck, my guess is that you may want to target partners with a book of business in biotech or pharma. On the off-chance that you have done some ITC work in maritime law, play that up with patent litigators.
Sending unsolicited resumes to HR departments is typically useless.
Good luck with your search. Job searches get easier after the first job,
Legal Expenses Insurance That Covers Family Law?
Is It Possible To Buy Legal Expenses Cover That Includes Legal Expenses For Family Law In The Uk? Most Home Insurance Policies Cover Legal Expenses, But They Don'T Cover Family Law E.G. Dispute Over Child Residence Or Contact. Who Can Provide This?
Nobody will - because people don't usually want to buy it, unless they're going to use it. Family law is generally considered the 'dregs' of the legal profession. No one is ever happy with the results, and no one ever wants to settle - so that incurrs MAJOR legal expenses.
You can't sell a policy for $250 and pay out $25,000 to more than 50% of the people. There isn't any "risk sharing".
Is It Possible To Sue An Attorney For Malpractice?
I Had Been Working With This Attorney For Quite Some Time And My Case Was Moving Along Just Fine Until 2 Months Ago. He Basically Told Me My Case Was Closed And That He Could Recommend Another Attorney But He Could No Longer Help Me. It Sounded To Me Like He Did Something Wrong And So I Decided To Investigate. Sure Enough It Ends Up Being That He Had Slipped On Some Deadline To Submit My Paperwork And Wanted Nothing To Do With Me Now. I Have All The Proof That Can Incriminate Him Of Malpractice But I Don'T Know How To Go About It. Any Serious Comments Would Be Greatly Appreciated. Thanks!
You should, of course, file a complaint with the state bar association. They will investigate and impose discipline where necessary. However, that doesn't really address your problem.
You probably lost rights to some monetary damages in the case he was handling. Some attorneys advertise that they sue other attorneys. Start with them. Most attorneys won't take a case against another attorney.
You need to act quickly. The attorney most likely has malpractice coverage, and any attorney you hire will make a demand against the insurance immediately. But they have to know about the claim. If your claim is good enough, chances are that the insurance company will want to settle quickly.
Attorneys don't do well as defendants in front of juries. Imagine that.

Gain Back Child Custody?
So My Sister Lost Custody Of Her 5Year Old Boy July 2012 I Dont How She Was Able To Loose :( I Guess Her Ex Show Alot Of Evidence, But I Want Her To Get Him Back If Its Pissible!! I Miss My Newphew So Much I. She Says Its Hard To Fight Back For Custody Is This True ?? What Can She Do Helllpppp
Sometimes it can be done and it is hard to do but so very worth it.
What she should do is go for joint custody first unless she can prove that the father is mistreating him in some way. Than after joint custody she can work towards full phisical custody.
What she needs to do to prepare is get a daily planner and document everything. Conversations, visitations, taken and missed and why, Requests for visitations and results of those requests. Pictures of any physical signs of abuse. Pertinent things said and actions of the child.
Also get statements from those who know the mother and can show the quality of person she is and the quality of care she will give her child. Also any support she will have from others to help her in the total care of her child. Make 3 copies, so that there are 4 in total - the original and 3 copies. Have them get these papers notarized with a seal, NOT a stamp. The seal is very important.
Write a list of the reasons she is seeking joint/whole custody of the child. Start the list stating what exactly she is seeking (custody, to what degree, visitations laid out, child support - state your full request of the court) Also add anything that she feels will back up each reason. Keep all emotions out of everything, just stick to the facts Keep everything short and to the point, She will want 5 copies of this document and all notarized with a seal.
When she is ready to set a court date, call the court and get a hearing time and date. This should be free, it is a part of the original custody hearing. When she gets the hearing date and time than she needs to take all her statements, 4 of each statement and prepare to mail them out with a paper stating the date and time of the hearing. She also wants to have an extra one of the hearing date so she can send it to the father.
To the father, mail a copy of the hearing notification and her list. She must have this in his hands no less than 10 days before the hearing date. Now for the rest of the papers... One of each one should be mailed to the following people/places...
1. The court for the fules
2. The judge residing over the hearing
3. The originals only, are to be sent to herself
4. The last set of papers don't need to be sent, they are to be kept by the sender.
Sent ALL these (including the fathers) with a return receipt so that she has proof of sending and also who signed to receive them. When she gets hers un the mail, she should not open it. Write on it the date received and put it in a safe place, it will be her master copy and proof of what and how she did it.
She can get a lawyer, or she can do this herself, representing herself in court. The thing to know here is that she just did everything and more than a lawyer would do and when representing herself in court, they will be more lienient with her because they know she is not a trained attorney and can;t speak as one would. So,they will listen to her more and allow a few things they would not from an attorney, because they know she is not an attorney.
When appearing in court she should look and dress in a manner that is respectful to the judge and court. Not sloppy. When addressing the court, keep all emotions in check, a little tear is ok, but no he did this and tit for tat stuff. Keep every statement factual, to the point and SHORT. When the judge asks what she is there for and what is her request, just refer him/her back to the list she gave him/her and state that she just want to have her child and (If she is requesting this) child support and medical to help her care for him.
