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.

Does Anyone Know What Site I Can Find Probono Attorneys?
My Daughter Lives In Texas With Her Dad. I Live In Indiana With My Boys. I Went To Texas A Few Weeks Ago And Couldn'T Pick Her Up As Scheduled For The Summer Vacation. I Had Already Purchased Plane Tickets, Asked For Certain Days On, And So On. Before I Left, I Was Served With Court Papers About Me Being Sued For Full Custody And A Restraning Order. I Went Balistic. I Called To Texas And Spoke To Everyone I Could At The Court House And Went Through A Lengthy Phone Interview For Tx Rural Legal Aid. I Went With Some Hope, But Much To My Dismay, I Return Without My Daughter. I Am A Single Working Mother, Trying My Best. Why He Would Do Something Like That Just Because He Doesn'T Like Me, Is Uncomprehensional. My Boys Were Severely Dissappointed As Was I. I Can'Y Afford A High Priced Attorney. I Wrote Up A Per Say Motion For Continuance And Was Grated One Month. My Court Date Is July 6Th. There Is No Possible Way I Can Make It, And Even If I Could I Have No Representation.

Is It True That A Good Lawyer Can Get You Millions From A Very, Very Simple Slip And Fall....?
Typically not. Many times, if the defendant has acted somewhat reasonable, punitive damages (money damages meant to punish the defendant) are not available and you may only get actual damages, ie the medical costs you incurred from the fall for say an aircast. It really comes down to the state you live in and what threshold is required for a plaintiff to get punitive damages.
Child Custody Please Advice?
Okay, I Am Pregnant Right Now And The Dad'S Saying Its Not His. Well, I Told Him That Rather He Beleives It Or Not Its His And I Am Putting His Name On The Birth Certificate. Well, His Response Was If I Did He Would Have A Dna Test Done(I Already Planned That) And Get Custody Of The Baby. How Likely Is It That He Can Do This If I Am Not Unfit I Have A Clean House, I Am Currently Not Working But Checking Into A Work At Home Thing. The Reason I Am Not Working Is Cuz I Can'T Lift. What Are The Chances He Will Be Able To Get Full Custody Of The Baby. I'M Not Real Worried About It But He Does Have More Money Than I Do.
Highly unlikely- parents don't get sole custody without a reason, the majority of judges won't go for that. In all honesty, he's just saying that to scare you out of doing the test- if DNA tests prove it's his, he'll have to pay child support, and it sounds like he will do anything possible to keep from having responsibility in this- he's not going to go for full custody, he doesn't even want to be named the daddy..
What Do Most Criminal Defense Lawyers Major In?
Although provision vary by state, in order to become a criminal defense lawyer you first need to obtain a bachelor's degree. You can choose any major however most people intending to enter law school choose political science, history, criminal justice, or pre-law majors. You must also pass the LSAT (Law School Admissions Test) if applying to an ABA (American Bar Association) approved school. Once accepted you will then need to complete 3 years of legal studies in law school if attending full time and longer if attending only part time. Unlike medical school attending a certain institution does not guarantee you a seat in law school. Students fiercely compete for a seat in a law school. You should keep your undergraduate grade point average as high as possible and strive obtain the highest LSAT score to your ability. I am a pre-law major, so good luck to you future counselor
Why Is It Legal For Lawyers To Lie?
I'M Not Saying That They Are Allowed To Make Things Up, But They Can Do Something Just As Disgusting. For Example, If Someone Murders Someone, They Get A Lawyer, And Then Admit That They Murdered A Person. The Lawyer Is Not Required To Admit This Information To Anyone, But Actually To Deny It In Court. If The Same Criminal Indulged The Same Information To A Friend Who Was Then Questioned, They Would Be Held In Contempt Of Court If They Didn'T Tell The Truth. I Understand That Everyone Has The Right To An Attorney, But How Is That Okay?
It isn't legal for a lawyer to lie.
In fact, unlike most people, a lawyer can be disbarred and lose his entire livelihood if caught lying. A lawyer cannot legally say anything at trial that he knows to be untrue, nor present any evidence that he knows to be perjured.
Remember, pleading 'not guilty' is NOT the same thing as saying "I didn't do it." It is the lawyers job to make the government PROVE that you did what they claim you did.
Second Offense Dui In Michigan?
My Father Was Found Slumped Over In His Truck On Tuesday Night In A Parking Lot And Refused To Take A Breathalyzer Test. Instead, The Police Took Him To The County Jail And Did A Blood Test Instead. He Has A Court Date On The 27Th Of This Month. Considering This Still Counts As A Dui (I Believe), What Would The Sentence Be? My Mom Told Me He Had A Dui Once Before A Long Time Ago. Any Help Would Be Great, Thanks.
Michigan DUI Law
Of the 1,155 traffic fatalities on Michigan highways in 2004, 329 involved a driver with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater, which is over the legal limit. 201 of those deaths involved a driver who had a concentration of more than twice the legal limit.
Michigan makes it illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of greater than .08. Additionally, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while you are “visibly impaired” by alcohol or other drugs.
First Conviction: The first conviction is a misdemeanor. The court has discretion to apply any or all of the following penalties: up to 360 hours of community service, up to 93 days in jail, and a fine of $100 - $500.
Second Conviction in 7 Years: The second conviction is also a misdemeanor. This time the court will apply a fine of $200 - $1,000 and either (1) a jail term of 5 days – 1 year (48 hours of which must be served consecutively) or (2) 30 – 90 days of community service or (3) some combination of the two.
Third Conviction in 10 Years: This conviction is a felony. The court will fine you $500 - $5,000. Additionally the court will either sentence you to (1) 1 – 5 years in prison or (2) 30 days – 1 year in jail, plus 60 – 180 days of community service. Finally, on the third conviction, Michigan may take possession of your car and sell it at auction.
** in some states, if you are above the legal limit, with the key in the ignition, it is still considered a DUI regardless if the vehicle is actually turned on**
Seriously try to talk your dad into counseling. Not only is he putting his life in danger, but all those around him. Good luck!
