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.

Contact the GA Bar Assn. for referrals. www.gabar.org/index.htm They can tell you what lawyers specialize in that branch of law and may have a list of those who will work pro bono tho that may be hard to find. You may find one that will take the matter on contingency (That means they get paid only if they win and get $ for you)

What Are Some Reasons To Become An Attorney? Specifically A Real Estate Attorney, But Any?
What Are Some Good Reasons For Becoming An Attorney?
What Are Some Good Reasons For Becoming A Real Estate Attorney?
There is not many good reasons for becoming an attorney. Major lawyer glut, too many law schools. USA needs more lawyers, like it needs swine flu.
I have been a real estate lawyer. As another poster said most attorneys cannot just be a real estate attorney. Real estate is cyclical, less deals, means less work for attorneys in general. The foreclosure law firms are doing well, but that is only if you own a foreclosure law firm. I interviewed at my state's biggest foreclosure law firm and they were offering a $35,000 salary, wOW, let me roll up the armored car. They had probably 70 attorneys. Most of them were doing some small little grunt work pieces of the foreclosure, so they never saw the big picture of how to perform a foreclosure from beginning to end. I could not help it I laughed at the interviewer when he told me salary. I put up with a lot to be a licensed attorney, no way they get me for $35K. I would rather worked at Taco Bell as an assistant manager and probably get paid more.
I have done a bunch of real estate closings where people are buying and refinancing property. That used to be an OK gig, again you have to own the law firm. I worked for a real estate/debt collection law firm making $25,000 a year, it was a joke. I needed the experience so I worked there for a short time, but I felt totally used. Then I went on my own. BIG STRESS. There is huge competition for clients among attorneys. It is hard or impossible for most new attorneys to get clients. Also, for real estate closings most states are allowing non-lawyers to do closings, and this trend is spreading. It costs less for a kid with a high school diploma doing your closing versus an attorney, so in the non-attorney states it is harder to make a $. Then there is all the unethical stuff where people, like real estate agents and mortgage brokers want bribes/kickbacks for giving you business, which is illegal. If anything goes wrong with the closing you take the blame even though it is not your fault. Real Estate Agents, I cannot stand Real Estate Agents, they complain about everyone else, and how much the attorney charges. Yet, they get paid five times more than anyone for a closing. It is a declining, cut-throat business.
Really, go into healthcare if you have any interest in that field. Pharmacist, physical therapist, nurse, MD, dentist, those are the high pay, high in demand jobs that pay well. If you go law you might not be able to get a job. I went to a top twenty law school and there were classmates working as waiters and shoe salesmen months after graduation looking for a law job. Since then there have been several new law schools opening, passing the 200 mark for ABA accredited law schools in the USA(There are 37 dental schools, with a quarter of the class size), not to mention the unaccredited ones, there are ten more new law schools planning to open in the next two years, CRAZY.
I read an article in Lawyers Weekly, This year law is so bad that the 09' graduates of Harvard Law, generally ranked #1 cannot find jobs this year.
Would Anybody Pay A Set Fee (Say $20-$50) For Online Legal Advice If It Were From A Reputable Firm?
For Example, You Set Up An Account With The Firm And Through Online Bill Pay You Ask An Attorney That Is Connected With A Traditional Brick And Mortar Law Firm Any Legal Questions You Have. That Way You Don'T Have To Come Into The Office And It Is More Confidential If You Want It Too Be. What Do You Think? This Would Be Stictly Advice And Would Not Include Filing Papers, Etc. This Would Also Probably Be Only A Couple Pages Of Advice.
Yes, I certainly would pay a reasonable fee for legal advice of this kind as this would save time searching for the answer myself and would be more convenient than trying to contact a lawyer. If the response suggested I needed to take further action I could then use a lawyer to follow up.
However I would be less likely to use the service if I had to set up an account before I needed legal advice.
If You Are In Criminal Law, Are You A &Quot;Lawyer&Quot;?
If You Get Into The Criminal Law Field Are You A &Quot;Lawyer&Quot; Or Like What Do You Do Really?
Depends on what you are doing. You could say police are in the criminal law field. Some would say PIs are also in the field, depending on what they do. (Private investigators) There's forensic scientists. And a whole host of other jobs that are in criminal law or criminal justice.
To practice criminal law, you have to be a lawyer.
Why We Need Asbestos Cancer Lawyer?
To be honest, the only ones I ever heard of was on TV. They advertise about mesothelioma and such. You won't have to say when you came in contact like the first post said because no one knows that for sure. These lawyers are for suing and I guess that's what you want. I don't know what state you live in, but check out the commercial on TV or have you tried a web site? Either way, I wish you the best.
ADD OK I looked it up. Boy, there's a lot. I got 2 numbers for you,
1-800-934-2921- This is the one advertised on TV.
1-888-787-6376-Mark & Associates, P.C.
If you want more, just put in Mesothelioma lawyers and a huge list comes up. Most of these lawyers have branches all over the country. Luck to you.
Sexual Harassment On Job After 2 Days Of Working There!!! I Need A Way To Find A Good Lawyer!!?
(This Job Is A Clothing Store, That Is Owned By The Main Manager'S Family)
I Was Hired March 9Th (2009) And I Started Work March 10Th (Tuesday).
The First Day, My Boss Had Been Asking Me What Size Pants I Wore, And Repeatedly Making Comments.
Here'S An Example
(I'M Wearing Some Jeans, And A Kinda Long Black T-Shirt)
&Quot;What Size Do You Wear?
&Quot;Size... 5... &Quot;
&Quot;You Don'T Look Like A Size 5.&Quot;
&Quot;I Know, It'S Because Of My Hips.&Quot;
He Then Pulled Up My Shirt In The Back And Made The Comment.
&Quot;Yeah, You Have A Big Butt&Quot;
He Then Told Me To Go Into The Stock Room In The Back To Separate Some School Clothes By Size.
So I Followed Him Back There To Do The Job.
I Was Standing Up Taking Bundles Of School Pants And Putting Them Into Another Box By The Sizes.
He Came Back, And Said, I'M Straining My Back. He Told Me To Get On The Floor On My Knees. And He Took The Pants, And Just Piled Them On The Floor. He Told Me, It Would Be Easier To Separate...
He Then Asked Me If He Can See My But. And I Told Him &Quot;No&Quot; And He Said,
&Quot;Aww, Cmon.&Quot; And He Pulled The Back Of My Pants And Looked At My Butt. And When He Did It, His Hand Actually Touched My Skin.
I Turned From Him, And He Leaned Toward Me And Grabbed My Butt And Said &Quot;Well Can I Grab It?&Quot;
I Told Him No Again,
What Should I Really Do?
If You Want To Talk To Me One On One, You Can Message My Yahoo Messenger, I Know That There Can Only Be One Response To A Question. =/
Ok, first off this isn't your fault. It's your boss, so of course you're going to answer his questions. If were going to be rude to him, you risked getting fired. Anyway, is there an HR that you can go to? A boss above him? You SHOULD NOT/CANNOT talk to him about this. You've already made it clear to him that you do not like or appreciate his comments to you. So, go home and write it down/type it out. The day, time of day the incident happened (if you remember) and what exactly happened and what was said. What he's doing is illegal and if he's doing it to you, he's probably doing it to other employees. I would look into reporting him to HR. Do whatever you need to to go above him and report it. They'll ask you a series of questions - take your notes you made and then ask him about it. They'll tell him there has been a sexual harassment suit filed against him, but they won't say wo filed it. Good luck and hopefully you can get this a.s.s. hole fired.
