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.

What'S The Difference Between Driving Under The Influence (Dui) And Driving While Intoxicated (Dwi)?
The right answer
DWI- Driving While Intoxicated
DUI- Driving Under the Influence
There is NO difference between the two. Roughly 40 states in the U.S. enforce a DUI (driving under the influence) as the offense. The other ten states enforce DWI (such as Missouri, Texas, New York, Minnesota, Connecticut, New Jersey, and New Hampshire, all DWI States, NOT DUI).
There are also other states that classify the offense as DWAI, OUI, DUII, OWI
DWAI (Colorado, which also enforces the DUI)
OWI (Indiana, Michigan)
You can't be charged with a DUI or DWI in these states, other then Colorado which enforces two of them.
So, it completely depends on which state you get pulled over in. Driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) can be giving to a driver, whether he has been drinking, or on any type of mind altering drug (including certain prescriptions). Although each state has different penalties for the offense, they are considered the same in the national database.
I Need An Employment Lawyers Advice Here In Houston Texas Asap Need Help... Any Suggestions?
Money Was Stolen From My Office Which I Did Not Take!! Now They Want Me To Take A Polygraph Test Monday I Have No Problem Taking One Since I Did Nothing Wrong. But I Think They Are Going To Fire Me Anyway So Why Should I Take A Polygraph. If I Dont They Say I Have To Pay For It. This Could Ruin My Career! All My Employees And The Whole Company Knows About This And Think Im Thief. When They Fire Me They Will Really Think That I Stole The Money. I Need A Lawyers Advice. Please
You do not need a lawyers advice . . . at least, not yet.
You didn't say what your position is,
whether your company is or works for a government facility,
or how much money is missing,
or whether anyone else at your place of business is taking the test,
or even if it's the first time you've been accused of any crime at work,
and many other questions,
any one of which would make a huge difference
in the responses you get.
However, generally speaking,
polygraph testing is expensive, and not for casual use,
say, for determining whether a burger flipper took $10 out of the register.
If you have a low-level position and the amount was under $1,000,
it is highly unlikely that any employer would bother with a polygraph.
But, if you're in charge of your company's retirement funds,
then, obviously, that's a very different matter.
Either way, most employers would simply call the police.
But, if the employer truly wants you to take a polygraph,
then, by US Federal law (assuming, of course, that you are working in the US),
they must present you with documentation explaining the procedure
and your legal rights BEFORE the polygraph is given.
Regardless, you're already convinced that your reputation is ruined,
which will make it difficult for you to interact with your colleagues,
so, do yourself a favor, and leave before it is made into a federal case,
that, no matter the outcome, you will not end up "winning"
(note that if you leave, voluntarily, even if no polygraph is given,
you probably will not be able to collect unemployment,
unless you can convince your local agency that you were under duress,
which will require a lot of proof).
Where Can I Get Low Cost Legal Aid For Child Custody Cases?
I'M In California And I Want To Change The Custody Order. We Currently Have A 50/50 With My Ex, And He Won'T Allow Me To Move 45 Minutes Away To Another County With My Child.
It States In The Custody Order That I Can Move, As Long As He Is Notified, But He Is Giving Me A Hard Time About It.
The Child Is Also Fearful To Be Near Him, And Has Expressed That His Father Has Locked Him In The Dark. This Is Unacceptable Punishment To Me, And I'D Like An Agreement That Is 75/25, With The Father Taking Parenting Classes.
Google free legal advice to find someone in your area. At least they can help you find a starting place to getting low cost help.
I went through something similar in Australia, and received free legal aid provided by the government to low income earners.
Good luck with your case. Family Law = ongoing trauma!
New York State Divorce Laws?
My Wife Has Filed Papers For Divorce I Really Can'T Afford An Attorney. I Lost My Job. What Are My Options
If she is filing a no fault divorce (a divorce that usually means irreconcilable differences) NY state requires you to be legally separated for 1 year BEFORE you can even file for divorce. Once the year is up you can file.
If its an uncontested divorce, meaning you two agree on the terms of the divorce, a lawyer is not required. If you two cannot agree on the terms, then its considered contested and will require a lawyer.
Am I Being Insensitive? Child Custody Rights?
My Ex-Wife And I Have 2 Kids. She Has Physical Custody But We Have Joint Custody. Her Husband Of A Couple Months Just Got In An Accident And Lost Both His Legs. In Such A Tragic Event, She Will Be In The Hospitals All The Time, I Want The Kids To Come Live With Me For A Short While During This Event.
Although It Is A Tragic Event, To Me It Seems To Be The Textbook Time For Me To Step In And Perform My Rights As A Father To Take Them In. She Is Going To A Different State Where The Treatment Will Be Done. She Refuses To Let Me Take Them To My Home Which Is Also In Another State, She Would Rather Put Them Into Daycare In The Area Around The Hospital.
She Is Accusing Me Of Not Being Sensitive To The Situation, And That The Guy Who Has Known My Kids For A Couple Months Needs Them To Heal (Although His Own Kid From A Different Relationship Will Be There Also). Give It To Me Real People, My Divorce Decree Is So Generic, What Rights Do I Have?
you have every right to go to the courts just based on the fact that this is a legal issue > a moral one, & you both disagree..the problem is, is that by the time the courts even give you the time of day for a hearing on the issue, he will probably be out of the hospital & @ home...you need to sincerely talk to your ex about this..she is not willing to give them up because she knows she will not get them back..IF you are sincere, then put this more on the fact that this will allow her to let up on her obligations for a little bit, & make sure that the kids keep in pretty good contact with both her & her husband...honestly, if you can just act like a human being, ya may just get what you want..ya go in threatening, then you're gonna get hesitation...even though it sounds like a great plan, you need to be trusted (sorta hard for her to trust you right now, I'm sure),,play the part, stick to the part & your future with your kids wil be great..& so, your kids will turn out great..but play dissension, the kids will be the one's paying..again, legally, you can go to court with this, but overall, you both should behave like adults & keep the kids out of this court mess....you should also look @ what you are doing, how it plays in the future, & don't go back on your word about sending them back to mom's when it's time...no matter what you may believe @ that time...again, she's not being easy about this cuz she knows if she hands the kids over, she will have to fight to get them back..& after all the commotion that she's going through right now, you shouldn't bring her through that later..again, it comes back to trust, cuz by letting daycare take care of them, she knows @ the end of the day, she's not gonna lose her kids...
Suits Vs. Real Life Corporate Lawyers?
I Was Wondering How The Show Suits Differs From Real Life Law Firms And Corporate Lawyers. What Are Some Similarities And Differences? Thanks!
99.99% of what you see in the show is wrong. I think they do have the architecture of the law firm building pretty true-to-life, but even the interior decor is not even close to what you'd find in a real law firm.
Seriously. Do not take ANY representation of lawyers or law firms or crime labs or the police or detectives or judges or anything on TV or in the movies as even slightly true to life. If they made a TV series about real corporate law work no one would watch it because watching someone sit at a desk for 12-15 hours a day is not something most people find interesting.
