Most people do not think about acquiring a lawyer right up until they are in desperate need. The lawful dilemma might be personal, like family law, for a breakup or if you are looking for a bankrupcy or trust attorney. It may be a criminal condition you need to be defended on. Businesses require law firms as well, whether or not they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or perhaps unfair business strategies. Tax lawyers are also helpful while coping with government challenges. Just like doctors, lawyers have areas. A sizeable, full service law firm has numerous attorneys with different areas of experience, so depending on your legal issue, you can instantly retain the most effective legal representative to match your up-to-date need without having to begin your search each time you need legal help.It is ideal to locate a legal representative you can believe. You need one with a decent track record, who isstraightforward, efficient, and wins cases. You need to have assurance that they will represent you effectively and bill you fairly for their products and services. Oftentimes a recommendation from a good friend or business associate can be practical, however you should continue to keep your options open and evaluate all the firms accessible, because when you need to have legal help, you need it instantly and you desire the very best you can pay for.

Should I Search For A Lawyer?
About Two Weeks Ago My Fiancé Was Verbally Reprimanded Because She &Quot;Uses The Restroom Frequently&Quot; Yet Her Boss Knows That She Has Medical Reasons As To Why She Uses It Often. Well, Today She Was Fired From Her Job And All They Told Her Was That She Was Not Meeting The Job Expectation. That Is It. There Is More Information That She Knows That I Don'T, Or Can'T Remember At This Time. But With That Alone Does Anyone Think We Should Be Looking Into A Lawyer? We Live In Los Angeles If That Makes A Difference. Advice Is Much Appreciated.
David, while it's unfair and not nice at all, I suspect they literally can fire her for going to the bathroom too often because her medical condition requires it.
Unless her medical condition is considered a disability, she's not in a protected class and might lose a law suit.
While I can't say I approve of the business's actions (and lack of tolerance and understanding), from their viewpoint they could be getting rid of someone who is not giving them 8 hours a day but 7.5 because of her needs.
That said, I'm not a lawyer. You can usually talk to one on the phone, explaining the situation and asking if you have a case, for no charge. I'd seek on who advertises that s/he specializes in employment or labor law.
Top 14 Law Schools?? ?
I Want To Attend A T14 Law School. For Financial Reasons I Am Attending Community College. I Plan On Transferring To Uc Berkeley In The Fall. Then Applying To My Choice Schools. Will The Admissions Look Down And Not Really Give Me A Shot Because I Started At A Community College?
Admissions will not look down on you because you started at a community college, particularly if you end up transferring to a high-caliber school such as UC Berkeley. Law schools will care much more about your GPA than where you got it, and they will care about your LSAT score more than your GPA (although having a low GPA will not really be ameliorated by having a high LSAT). For school in the T14, aim for a GPA of 3.6+ (the closer to a 4.0, the better), and an LSAT score of 170+ (172+ is even better).
Rather than worrying about the general "prestige" of your undergrad, if your aim is a T14 school, focus on creating a stellar applicant profile: high GPA, excellent LSAT, well-crafted essay and résumé, and stellar letters of recommendation.
Here are some additional thoughts about how you can create a solid applicant profile:
► Your personal statement. This is the creative essay you will write and include with your application. Many students write about why they want to attend law school; while this is definitely a worthwhile topic, it is not necessarily what you must write about. The personal statement is the one part of the application that you have complete control over, which is why it is also one the most important after your numerical indicators. It shows law schools your writing abilities, judgment in selecting a topic, and ability to engage an audience. The University of Chicago Law School has some great tips on what they look for and what to watch out for an avoid in a personal statement: http://www.law.uchicago.edu/node/1451
► Your letters of recommendation: I would say that these are second in importance to the personal statement, although they are certainly not unimportant by any means. The LORs allow law schools to hear others talk about your academic, personal, and extracurricular achievements and abilities. AdComs can tell a lot from your letters, what is written in them, and who wrote them for you. If it is obvious that you chose someone that doesn't know you at all, simply for the sake of having someone with an impressive title write your letter, then that speaks very poorly of you. If you chose someone who knows you extensively and wrote a glowingly positive letter filled with personal anecdotes, then that speaks highly of your choice. If you (God forbid) chose someone who writes a negative letter, then it calls into question your judgment. As you can see, it is not just about what's in the letter, but also what can be surmised from it that matters. A good letter should be lengthy, overwhelmingly positive, and filled with stories that only someone you have worked with closely would be able to write.
► Your résumé: This will tell law schools a number of things - What you were/are involved in, what you chose to showcase, how far you've risen within the leadership of any groups you are in, what you've done for employment, etc. It essentially tells the story of your life outside of the classroom. This is why it is important--it lets them have a glimpse into an area of your life that may not be addressed elsewhere (unless you choose to discuss a previous job or activity in your personal statement).
► Your transcript: Although your GPA will be the primary element that will be gleaned from your transcript, a number of other things can be surmised as well: Your major (and the relative difficulty of it), your grade trends (did they go up consistently? Did they start high and continue to stay elevated? Did they go down as you went through school?), and your course selection (is your transcript filled with elementary and introductory classes? Did you choose high-level courses?).
Although it is doubtful that any of these elements will hold as much weight as your GPA/LSAT combo, in the event that there are other qualified candidates with your same credentials (or in the event that you are a "splitter"--i.e., someone with a high LSAT but low GPA, or vice-versa), then these "softs" will play a much bigger role, and may even end up playing the determining role in your admissions decision, particularly if you're aiming for elite law schools.
I hope that helped! Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
Legal Aid Services?
I Am 50Yrs Old, My Husband Died In 1992. I Was Getting His Social
Security But Was Stopped When My Younger Son Reached Age 16.
I Can Hardly Make It With The Income I Am Making. I Would Like To
Know If I'M Entitle To Social Security Benefit?.
First of all I do not understand why your younger son is not receiving social security survivor benefits since his father is dead. He is entitled to them and medicaid until he is 18 years of age. He also is eligible for grants for college. You on the other hand should not touch your social security until you are of retirement age. If you do, this will greatly decrease the needed benefits when it is time for you to retire. You should go to the social security office with your 16 year old son, and take your husbands death certificate, and your son's social security number and birth certificate. Get another part time job if you have to. I am nearly 60 years old, and I work a lot of hours in order to make ends meet and take care of my elderly mom. I am not touching my social security benefits until it is time so I will not be penalized. Doing so would decrease your social security payments to the minimum that they will pay you. You want to keep paying into your quarters as long as you can. Good luck, and I hope this helps you. I am sorry about your husband.
How Do I Find An Attorneys Win/Loss Rate?
That's not a good indicator of an attorney's capability.
The reason is, some attorneys take cases that are extremely challenging, while others, the more lightweight ones, only accept cases that they anticipate will be easy to win.
Now, which attorney do you want to take your case, the lightweight with the good record, or the kick-a$$ bruiser who's not afraid to take on a challenge?
Legal Advice For Getting Help For A Child.?
My Friend Has Power Of Attorney Of 14 Year Old That Refuses To Go To School Because Of A Facial Deformity, That Could Be Fixed. She Is Afraid Of The Court System Here, And The Child Would Go To A Foster Home, And Get Lost In The System Again, If She Loses Her. How Do I Go About Getting Her Disability, So She Can Have Money To Get Car And Gas To Go Find A Surgeon To Help Her.
Homeschooling does not require credentials, just registration. You should call the school district and ask for information about home schooling requirements. The school district should provide a home teacher if school harassment is keeping her away. They are required to do something by law. Ask the school district about that as well.
For SSI, you have to prove that the parents have to spend so much time taking her to doctors and taking care of her medical condition that they can't hold a job. Teaching doesn't count.
However, they may qualify for medical care on the state if her condition is affecting her health. You can try Operation Smile for funding to get it fixed.
Good luck and thank you for caring.
If the power of attorney is 29 years old, she would be better off getting a formal guardianship of the child, especially since the child was not around when the POA was created. Since the mom apparently agrees, then it can be done in a lawyers office and probably rubber stamped by a judge. Even corrupt judges won't do anything with something that innocuous. You can try Legal Aid or call your local library for a list of low cost legal clinics. Who has brain cancer, the biological mother or the aunt?
You can also call 211 for help with all of this. That is a state provided number that refers you to various agencies, private and public, to help with things like this.
