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.

How Do I Find Out A Lawyers Success Rate In The Courtroom?
I Want To Shop For A Good Lawyer. How Do I Find Out How Many Trials A Lawyer Has Won Versus Their Losses?
A lawyer's courtroom record is not so easy to analyze as wins and losses. For instance, there are a number of times in a civil litigator's career where the job isn't to win some money or keep the other side from winning any money. A lot of times, civil litigators will only consider it a win if they get a verdict above a certain amount of money, or if they get a verdict below a certain amount of money, depending on which side they represent.
Likewise, with criminal lawyers, sometimes the goal is to convince the jury not that the client is innocent, but that they aren't guilty of a serious crime like rape or murder. So if the client is charged with capital murder (the prosecution wants the death penalty), and the jury returns a verdict of manslaughter, the defense attorney arguably "won." But that wouldn't be clear from court records.
The best thing you can do is call a few lawyers and ask for a referral, or ask about a specific lawyer. Lawyers know each other, and they know who is good and who isn't.

Well, if your Grandfather was the only one on the deed the loan officer who did what they did, did not have to tell the family. Your grandfather signed the loan documents agreeing to the loan. The good news, most likely the loan officer LIED on the loan documents about your grandfathers income, but again, most DA's will not go after the loan officer unless they can prove at least 3 cases or complaints against the loan officer. Most likely the scum of the earth who did this to your grandfather is/was probably not licensed with the department of real estate. You can check that by googling California Department of Real estate, once on the website, there is a small yellow box, click on it, then last name first and search, then, if they are licensed place a complaint with them. Most likely the person is not in the business anymore! What you can do, if there is any equity left is a reverse mortgage, get some money for your grandfather and on a reverse mortgage there is no payment. Many people are against reverse mortgages because they do not know how they work, this could save your grandfather's home if there is equity, and the property will make payment to him! When he passes the heirs still get the remainder of the equity, it does not go to the BANK! You can e-mail me with further questions if you would like.
Arrested For Driving Under The Influence?
I Recently Got Arrested For Driving Under The Influence. I Blew A .146. What Are The Chances My Charge Can Get Reduced To Reckless Driving Or Something Else If I Get A Lawyer? Is It Worth It? Thank You
There is no way this will be plead down to a lesser charge. They have you cold on DUI, at a level quite above the legal limit.
DUI's are almost never plead down, they are pretty much impossible to lose for the DA. With a BAC of almost double the legal limit, no Judge would even allow this to be plead down. You will have to face the consequences of your actions.
Moving (Distance) And Sharing Joint Custody?
In The United States, How Far Can I Legally Move From My Childs Father Without His Concent, If We Share Joint Custody?
As far as the court will allow or the laws of your (unstated) state.
EDITED BASED ON STATE:
There are several issues regarding relocation, not the least of them whether or not the move is in or out-of state.
Some case law on the subject for Indiana is included here:
"The straightforward answer to [the wife's constitutional] argument is that the court's order does not impose any necessary burden whatever upon her right to travel. She remains free to go wherever she may choose. It is the children who must be returned to Indiana." Clark v. Atkins, 489 N.E.2d 90, 100 (Ind. Ct. App. 1986).
The Indiana Court of Appeals reversed a transfer of primary physical custody to the father based on the mother's in-state move in In re Marriage of Van Schoyck, 661 N.E.2d 1 (Ind. Ct. App. 1996). Four years after the divorce, the mother had moved to another city to live with her boyfriend and his parents. The court of appeals held that the father had failed to demonstrate a change in circumstances warranting a custody modification. The father's desire for the child to remain in the same school district was an insufficient basis for a custody transfer.
In some cases, a custodian desires to relocate to another state simply to make a fresh start in life after the unpleasant experience of a failed marriage. Often, the custodian desires to relocate with a companion or new spouse. The results in such cases have been mixed.
Relocation for this reason was permitted in Swonder v. Swonder, 642 N.E.2d 1376 (Ind. Ct. App. 1994). Two years after the divorce, a mother with sole custody filed a notice of intent to move to Colorado, where the family had frequently spent vacations. The father sought a custody modification. As her reason for the move, the mother stated that she wanted to start a new life for herself and that she believed the climate in Colorado was healthier for the child. The trial court held that custody would be transferred to the father if the mother moved out of the state. The Indiana Court of Appeals reversed, however, noting that neither statutory nor case law placed any burden of proof on a relocating parent. Indeed, precedent established that a denial or transfer of custody based on the custodial parent's decision to move is improper when the move is made in good faith and out of a desire to improve the material or psychological life of the custodian, so long as the child's interests are not prejudiced thereby. In this case, the move was to improve the mother's psychological life, and the father failed to show resulting prejudice to the children. Thus, a modification of custody based on the move was improper. See also Wages v. Wages, 660 So. 2d 797 (Fla. Dist. Ct. App. 1995) (reversing custody transfer to father when mother with primary physical custody moved to Kentucky with new husband to start new life).
The issue is the best interest of the child and unless you can prove to the court that the move is not for any other reason you stand a good chance of the court allowing such. HOWEVER, because you created the distance your ex would also have a very good case for the court to tax all costs of his visitation time with the child to you.
Which means if he sees the child every other weekend, and you move 3,000 away, you could be paying for a roundtrip ticket every two weeks.
If you move in-state but 400 miles away, you could be driving 1,600 miles every weekend. Get the point?
How Do You Become A Trusted Reporter?
How Do You Become A Highly Trusted Reporter?
Being a Trusted Reporter takes working at it and reporting actual violations as you see them (not ignoring or answering them) to have a high Trust Rating for reporting.
It does not happen quickly.
Some think being a TC or being at a higher level and Points factor into automatically giving you reporting power but that is false, they are completely different things.
Being a Trusted Reporter just means that person has reported many many questions or answers successfully that did not win if appealed so when they report will then usually be removed with just their one report.
No one knows for sure if they have a high rating or not but if things you report that are very recently posted drop right away that would be an indication you are trusted.
To get to that point is not easy, you have to report often and most importantly be accurate.
