Finding A Skilled Lawyer Irrespective of what your legal needs are you will see that there are many lawyers in your town that advertise that they specialize in your type of case. This will make the process of finding one with a great deal of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the following you will be able to restrict your pursuit to the correct one in very little time. The first step is to make a set of the lawyers which can be listed in your area that specialize in your circumstances. When you are which makes this list you must only include those which you have a great vibe about depending on their advertisement. Then you can narrow this list down through taking some time evaluating their webpage. There you must be able to find how many years they have been practicing plus some general specifics of their success rates. At this stage your list needs to have shrunken further to the people which you felt had professional websites plus an appropriate level of experience. You need to then spend some time to search for independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure you look at the reviews rather than just relying on their overall rating. The information in the reviews gives you an idea of the way that they communicate with their clientele and the length of time they invest into each case that they are working on. Finally, it is advisable to talk to at least the very last three lawyers who have the credentials you are interested in. This will give you time to really evaluate how interested these are in representing you and the case. It really is imperative that you follow most of these steps to ensure that you find someone which has the correct measure of experience to help you the ideal outcome.

Joint Custody Visitation Rights?
If Both Parents Agree, Can The Kid Go Over To See The Other Parent @ Whatever Time Convienent For Parents And Kid?
Does There Always Have To Be A Strict Visitation Scheduel??
When parents can agree upon visitation that is usually the best policy, for both ex spouses and children. The divorce decree usually directs visitation as to when a child/ren MUST see one or the other parent. Many divorced couples cannot agree on the weather, let alone when and who should have visitation.
As long as both parents of the child/ren agree then that is the guideline you both should follow. Courts are to help regulate fair visitation or in some cases none at all.
Work As A Contract Attorney?
I Have An Opportunity To Work As A Contract Attorney. I'M A New California Attorney With Very Little Legal Experience. I Worked Full-Time While Going To School, So I Didn'T Have The Luxury Of Working As A Summer Associate Or Intern For A Law Firm, Unlike Many Other Job Candidates Out There. Although I Have Been Agressively Searching For A Permanent Position, I Feel That I Am Lacking The Experience That Most Law Firms Are Looking For.
How Is It To Work As A Contract Attorney On A Temp Basis? What Are The Pros And Cons Of This Type Of Work? Do You Really Gain Valuable Experience That Firms Are Looking For? Is There Much Networking Possibilities In The Firms That You Temp At? What Is The Average Length Of Time That You Go Without Working?
Any Advice, Comments, Personal Experience (Especially In S. Calif) Is Much Appreciated.
Like you I worked full time during law school and did not have a summer associate job. Once I passed the bar exam I found that jobs were really tough to get. I became a contract attorney, working as in independant contractor. I carried my own benefits (malpractice insurance, medical insurance). I found it to be the best way to learn about the legal industry and a variety of areas of law.
Pros: You do not have that tie to the firm you are working for, so office politics just pass you by. You can concentrate on the work, instead of the social interactions that go on in any company during working hours. You get tons of experience. You get to do anything that the other attorneys do not want to do, or are bored doing --- so you really learn by doing. Many firms will offer their contract attorneys full time jobs, if the firm is happy with your work.
Cons: If you enjoy socializing at work, you will feel left out. You will sometimes feel like you work out of your car or out of your briefcase, because you really have no home base.
As a contract attorney you will be exposed to all kinds of work. The key to being good is to do anything no matter what it is (I actually aswered phones when the firm secretary left), ask for more work (do everhthing as quickly and accurately as possible), and keep a pleasant attitude (be nice to everyone).
I made up my own brochure in Microsoft Office. If I was out of work for more than a week I would send out a mailing. After about a year my reputation was so good that I could have worked 24/7. The real fun of being a contract attorney is that your career is really in your hands. You don't feel like working, you don't; you want to go into a different type of law then you contact those law firms.
I am in Chicago and worked in a 40 mile radius of my home. I did contract work for 7 years until I decided to open my own firm. Good luck.
Are European Immigrants Coming To America Anymore?
On The News All I Hear Usually Is About Illegal Immigration, Hispanics, Latinos, Some Pacific Islanders, East Asians And Africans, But The Media Portrays Immigration As Mostly Hispanics And Latinos. I Remember Hearing About Stuff Like Ellis Island Where Many European Immigrants Would Come And Get Checked Out Before They Were Allowed To Enter The Usa. I Was Wondering If This Immigration Still Happens From Europe. I Ask Because I Really Appreciate And Respect Irish-American Culture, Thought Not Irish Myself, I Admire The Stories Of Irishmen And Women Who Lived Through The Civil War And Onward. It'S Not To Say I Have Anything Against Hispanic Or Latino Culture, But It Seems Like All The Cultural Groups (Irish Halls, Portuguese Halls, Etc.) Are All Run By People Who Are Well Into Their 60S And 70S. I Personally Believe That For Our Nation To Survive, We Need An Influx Of Immigrants From All Parts Of The World, But It Seems Like European Immigration Has Dropped Off In The Past Few Decades. Are European Immigrants Coming To America? And If So, How Many? And How Does This Compare To 1930S, 40S, And 50S Levels?
of course. but definitely the top countries sending immigrants are not in Europe. check out the official DHS statistics at http://www.dhs.gov/sites/default/files/p... European immigration has leveled off but it hasn't disappeared. from 1990 to 1999 1,350,000 Europeans became legal residents. the same for 2000-2009. but, worldwide it was 9,775,000 and 10,300,000 for the same periods. if you take a look at the figures for the 50s, you'll see 1,400,000 Europeans but that's the majority of people coming in as the worldwide figure is 2,500,000. The number of Europeans coming in now is actually higher than it was in the 60s-80s. if you check this site out, you can find figures going back to the early 1800s. It's pretty comprehensive.
I Want To File A Lawsuit Against Saks Off 5Th. Im Wondering Where To Find A Lawyer.Can You Help Please?
The Store Manager Won'T Accept The Sunglasses Back For A Return Or Exchange, The Reasoning: They 'Ve Been Worn (Yeah In My Car Enough To Realize They Are Defective And Can'T Wear Them. ) Their Customer Service Has A Different Reasoning: The Tag Is Missing (Of Course It Does Because I Bought Them To Wear Them And I Throw Away The Tag Before I Realized They Are Defective). They Offered Me Nothing Then Sorry And Poor Customer Service. I Need To Find A Lawyer. Do You Have Any Ideas? Thanks
A really good place to find a lawyer is in the Yellow Pages of your local phone book. If you don't have one, check with your neighbors or the local public library.
You may find that you will have a hard time finding one to take the case, though. Based on the brief description you provided, it doesn't sound like you have much of a case. And a lawyer will probably cost you a lot more than what you could win in damages if you win.
You would have a much easier and probably more successful time getting reimbursed if you go through the proper channels. If customer service and the store manager are of no help, go higher. Talk to the regional and district manager. If not resolved there, keep going up.
I Want To Be A Lawyer What Work Experience Should I Do?
I Want To Be A Lawyer What Work Experience Should I Do?
Im A Little Unsure On What I Could Do
Nothing until you are in law school. Any legal work experience you gain before law school will be of little help during or after law school. All you need to focus on is the two most important law school admissions factors: College GPA and LSAT; these two and not work experience is the key to getting into a good law school.
Best of luck.
If I Move Out Before The End Of The Month Can My Landlord Keep My Full Month'S Rent And Charge The New Tenant?
I Am Moving Out On The 7Th. I Asked My Landlord If He Would Be Prorating The Rent To Which He Replied, &Quot;Check Your Lease. I Do Not Prorate Rent Upon Exit.&Quot; This Is Stated In The Lease, Though I'M Not Certain It'S Legal If I Have Provided Proper Notice Of My Intent To Vacate (I Have). So My First Question...Is This Legal In The State Of Washington? Second Question...My Landlord Has Already Re-Rented The Apartment. The New Tenant Is Moving In The Afternoon Of The Day I Move Out And She Is Paying A Prorated Amount For The Month. Can He Legally Keep My Full Months Rent And Charge The New Tenant A Prorated Amount?
I would consult your local legal aid office or google the landlord tenant laws in your state. I manage an apartment community here in MI and I know that it's illegal to charge double rent for an apartment. If someone moves out in the middle of the month but is rent responsible until the end of the month, I can't move someone into that unit without refunding the previous tenant the difference.
To tell the truth...that's kind of gross (no offense to you of course) and maybe I am just being a little picky but shouldn't the unit be at least professionally cleaned and the carpets cleaned before someone else moves in? Kind of makes you wonder what you moved into doesn't it?
