What Does A Normal Work Day Look Like For A Lawyer?
As an associate, you are looking at 10 - 12 hours day. Most of that will be spent researching case law, writing draft briefs, arguments, etc. for partners, meeting with clients, meeting with other lawyers to plot strategy, and generally supporting the partners. As a partner (after 8 years as an associate), more of your time will be spent meeting with clients, meeting with opposition lawyers (trying to reach a settlement), meeting with potential new clients, reviewing documents written by the associates, and maybe going to court (good lawyers do not go to court, they reach an amicable, fair settlement). Your days do get cut down to 8 - 10 hour days.

Thanks For Your Help! X
Most legal aid offices use a matrix that tests assets and income to see if you qualify for legal aid. Even if you qualify you may not receive legal aid if the office thinks your legal issue is insubstantial, unimportant, or frivolous.
Why Is My Personal Injury Attorney/Barrister (Whatever) Such An Incompetent Putz?
Why Does He Continue To Send Letters To My Insurance Company, The Defendant'S Carrier And To My Physicians Indicating That He Represents Me, &Quot;Heather White,&Quot; In This Case, When I'M A Guy... Is It Too Much To Ask That He At Least Know The Name Of His Client?
Usually I tried to give a more complete answer.... But yeah, you need a new attorney. How is he supposed to represent your interest when he does not even know your name. In fact, he is sending a very bad message to the defendant insurance company.
They know he does not know what the hell he is talking about. They will not take him or you seriously.
Consult with a new lawyer how you can get your case transfer before this one attorney tell you that he has done a lot work on your case and that he charges 180 per hour, per letter....
I Need A Lawyer Today, Do I Need A Contract Lawyer Or A Real Estate My Landlord Breached Lease Before Move In?
I Was Set To Move In On My Move In Day My Landlord Breached The Lease Saying He Never Got Permission From His Mortgage (He Had A Modification) Company To Make His Primary Residence A Rental.
This Has Left Me On The Streets I'Ve Accepted Nothing From Him As Of Yet Because I Wish To Seek Legal Council. Contractual Lawyer Or Real Estate I'M Seeking Damages What Are My Options I'M In Nj Mercer County.
Your only damages would be whatever you lose by losing out on the rental. I suggest you see what your damages ARE before you consult a lawyer. If you can find another place to live quickly, the damages are likely to be minimal and a lawyer would cost more than the damages.
Make sure there isn't a clause in the lease that gives him the right to void it if it turns out to be illegal. Many standard leases have such a clause.
I recommend you spend your time right now, though, finding another place to live. The lawsuit can wait until then.
* Edit-- You would consult a landlord-tenant lawyer.*
Why The Hate For Lawyers?
I Am A First Year Law Student. Lawyers Seem To Be The Folks Everyone Loves To Hate. Joke Books Abound About Them. So That I Can Empathize With My Future Clients...Why All The Hate For Lawyers?
Thanks In Advance :)
Several reasons. One, they often represent criminals accused of horrible crimes, and do their best to get them acquitted. While doing so is essential to a just legal system, people often blame the lawyers for doing "too good a job."
Second, many of them really do make a ton of money off of the misfortunes of other people. Chemical plant leaks and gives hundreds of people cancer? Yippee, a tort lawyer's gold mine. You get the picture :)
My father's a lawyer, and a couple of my best friends are. I know a lot of them. By and large, they're highly ethical, honest, hard-working, and very intelligent people. But there are still an awful lot of lawyers out there that aren't ethical at all, and will do anything for money...that's true in any profession, but lawyers who do that are often quite visible in society :)
Good luck with your studies.
If A Home Is Left In Awill, And The Deed Is In Trust To Someone Can It Be Taken Away?
As an attorney practicing in Michigan, I can only tell you what I'd otherwise tell a Michigan resident. Which is: once the deed to the house is drafted and filed with the Register of Deeds, then the house is owned by the trust. Now, usually a trust is set-up as what is called a "Revocable Living Trust". The purpose of this trust is so that you can avoid probate and (typically) tax burdens on the receipient of the home.
You, as the Trustee of the Trust, have the ability to deed things in and out of the trust. Once you die, however, your successor trustee steps in and takes your place...with all the same rights as you had when you were alive (save any specific requirements as per the trust).
Therefore, once the Trust becomes the "owner" of the home, any subsequent will (with regard to the house) is unenforceable since you didn't own the house at the time you're attempting to give it away--the trust did. The problem, however, is that the person named in the will to get the house will probably contest that Trust provision of the house because the will was made AFTER the trust. Therefore, the devisee of the house will argue that the fact the will was made after the trust was drafted, it clearly shows an intent by the owner that he was revoking the provision in the trust as to who the beneficiary to the house is, and instead, is leaving the house to the person named in the will.
On the other hand, the successor trustee is going to argue that the person who created the trust and had the house put in the trusts name couldn't give the house away via a will because the house was now owned by the trust itself. Therefore, any will (even if subsequent to the trust) attempting to give away the house will fail because the testator didn't have possesion of the house to the extent that he had a divisible interest.
Whew, not an easy question you asked! =D
