Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are many lawyers in the area that advertise which they are experts in your kind of case. This can make the process of finding one with a lot of experience a bit of a challenge. However, if you follow the following you will be able to define your quest on the right one in very little time. The initial step is to create a list of the lawyers which are listed in the area focusing on your position. While you are causeing this to be list you must only include those that you may have an excellent vibe about based on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down through taking a bit of time evaluating their website. There you must be able to find the number of years they are practicing and a few general information about their success rates. At this point your list must have shrunken further to individuals that you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate level of experience. You need to then spend some time to check out independent reviews of each and every attorney. Be sure to browse the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The information from the reviews will provide you with an idea of the way they communicate with their clients and the time they invest into each case they are working on. Finally, you should meet with no less than the past three lawyers that have the credentials you are interested in. This provides you with some time to genuinely evaluate how interested they may be in representing you and your case. It is actually imperative that you follow most of these steps to actually find a person which includes the best level of experience to get you the very best outcome.

Is There A Way To Check Criminal History Or Court Records Of In Individual For Free?
Yes, depending on your state or city. Pacer is federal I believe, it's designed for lawyers but you can make an account as they don't check if you are really a lawyer or not. My county has an online database, I can check criminal, civil, family, probate, and unlawful detainer cases. They list the code violations so I have to go to another site to lookup the codes. My surrounding counties... Some allow it some don't. My local sheriff lists recent arrests and offenses. Do a google search of your county courts and check out their website, if they do it might say case search or case index.
Wedding Officiant Legal Questions?
Is It Illegal For A Licensed Wedding Officiant To Perform A Commitment Ceremony For Two People Who Cannot Legally Marry? (Ie Two Men In A Red State)...And Is There A Regulation On What Must Be Included In A Legal Ceremony For It To Be Binding (Other Than The License And The Intent To Be Married)...Thanks...
It is not illegal; some officiants will not do it. Your situation is somewhat different, but I won't perform a commitment ceremony for two people if one of them is still legally married or for some other reason it LOOKS like a wedding and everyone THINKS it's a wedding but there is no license. I will only perform a commitment ceremony if the language is clear that the ceremony is not legally binding. I have a lovely passage that one of my couples wrote, stating that although everyone there wishes the ceremony could be a true legal marriage, it is still a uniting of minds, hearts and spirits.
In NJ, at least, (where civil unions are legal) I've done many weddings for same gender couples, and there is no language regulation for the ceremony. I can pronounce them married (if they have a license) but the license itself refers to the union as a 'civil union'.
How Can I Find A Good Lawyer?
There are a number is places that may help. Contact the American Bar Association online and figure out any information on any lawyers in your area. They should give specifics like the lawyers field of law specialty, any troubles against the attorney, etc. There is a website named Vivo, I believe that gives lawyer ratings and yrs of practicing by name. The library usually has a section that contains records of lawyers in your state and info on them. Check it out. Hope this helps.
Should I Become A Lawyer?
Im Going To Be Entering College Very Soon And Was Deciding What I Wanted To Do I Want To Become A Lawyer But I Heard That The Outlook For This Job And Need Will Not Be There In 8 Years When I Finish All My Schooling. Im Just Afraid Im Going To Spend All This Money Then Either Not Pass The Bar Exam Or End Up Being A Paralegal. What Should I Do? Become A Doctor Instead?
Britt...as a lawyer, I can tell you it's not a fun job and you will be expected to give up your life for your career. Parent's 25th wedding anniversary party you planned and Judge tells you at 5pm he expects written submissions in his chamber first thing in the morning...you have to skip the party....that sort of thing always happens. As for whether you'd wind up a paralegal, it would depend on your motivation and the work you're willing to put in...when I finished, jobs were hard to come by, but the most determined got the jobs....and in law, there are lots of determined, aggressive people!
My dad was a Doctor...that didn't look a whole lot better to me, particularly if you are "on call".
Maybe you should see if you can get some work experience in a law firm or prosecutor's office, talk to some lawyers and see what you think. I find about 90% of us wish we had done something else (at least hte criminal lawyers). And the money just isn't there in either of the professions anymore, and besides, what price can you put on a life?
I also recommend you rent the movie "Click" with Adam Sandler...it's about regretting how much time & energy you put into your career, at the expense of the more important things in life.
Have you considered film school, acting or something like that...all those people seem to love their jobs & can make so much more money than lawyers & doctors.
And re what Hott says about med school, law school's pretty much the same, and when you graduate you have to take all sorts of rubbish from some judges, who will also do everything they can to break you. 2 of my colleagues wound up in mental hospitals mid-way through trials, one after a judge told him he was the worst advocate he'd ever seen (and this guy was a nice hard working guy with a wife and kids who didn't deserve it). Good luck with making your decision and ignore people who say you shouldn't have asked here...it's a great place to ask.
My Friend Is Currently Working For A Company In Columbus Ohio. Her Boss Is Pretty Much A Bastard And Frequently Changes Their Sarlary And Makes Them All Feel Like Idiots. Today He Made An Annoucement That Effective Imm, If You Weren'T Up To Par On Phone Calls (It'S A Telemarketing Company), Your Pay Would Be Cut. When She Picked Up Her Paycheck From Two Weeks Ago, Her Pay Had Been Cut. Is This Legal? Who Can She Talk To About Her Bosses Actions (He Also Happens To Be The Owner Of The Company)???
sounds like she needs to get a new job period if she is working somewhere that the boss is playing games with pay then she needs to get the hell out i am not sure about the practice of changing pay with out notice but as long as he is paying her minimum wage then he is keeping with the law there but is still sounds like she should leave and contact a labor attorney
Service Dog Laws, What Sites Can I Find These On?
I'M Trying To Find Some Good Sites That Provide Information About Service Dog Laws. The Best One I Have Found So Far Is
Of Course I Know I Can Visit The Ada And Doj Websites To Find What I Need To Know. But I'M Interesting In Finding Other Sites Similar To What I Have Found At Www.Servicedoginfo.Net
Its For A Project I'M Working On. I'M Analysing Different Sites That Contain This Type Of Information. Most Of What I Have Found Is Not As User Friendly As That Site, And A Lot Seem Very Home Made Hodge Podge. Any Suggestions?
I went back and looked at the site you mentioned. I'm sorry, but it didn't look very professional to me. There were several broken links and formatting errors.
The site itself is in violation of the ADA and Section 508 because it is not accessible to the blind. You can check it on the Cynthia Says portal at: http://www.contentquality.com/ for 508, and for WCAG priorities 1, 2, and 3.
It pretty much just contains materials copied from other sites, like the DOJ's business brief and frequently asked questions, and Delta's tips on service dog etiquette.
It doesn't cover the FHAA, the ACAA, Section 508, IDEA, the ADARA, state or case laws. Just a very brief overview of the ADA and not even a link to the actual text of the law, just guidances.
You should be careful of copying content from other sites without permission from the copyright holder. It is a violation of federal law. The DOJ gives permission to copy its guidances, but Delta does not.
