You really want one with a decent track record, who isstraightforward, productive, and wins cases. You would like to have assurance that they will defend you correctly and bill you reasonably for their services.

What Are The Differents Types Of Lawyers?
What Are The Different Types Of Lawyers And The Top Five Law Schools In The Us?
There are many types of lawyers. There are Criminal, Civil, Maritime, Insurance Defense, Immigration, Elder Law, and many, many more different types of specialty law degrees in which you can become Board Certified. You can't say that any school produces the best lawyers...it depends on how hard the law student studies and "swallows" the information contained the textbooks. There are many excellent schools in the U.S. in which to obtain a law degree. Try looking up top law schools on Google or Ask.com and you will see law schools such as Columbia, Yale, Harvard, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Notre Dame, University of Chicago, Berkeley at Cal, University of Texas at Austin, Baylor, Duke, Georgetown, Michigan, etc. They all have good law schools, some better than others, and to get a J.D., you had better have plenty of money because law school isn't cheap and it isn't an easy degree. If you don't pass your State Bar exam on the first try, then that's a very good sign that you aren't going to be a really good lawyer, although, in most states, you are given three tries to pass the State Bar Exam.
Idaho/Federal Working Laws?
My Family Is Having Problems At Work With A Manager Telling Them That Idaho Is A Right To Work State And That They Should Not Need A Break Upon Request Because Of That Reason. And They Don'T Even Offer Breaks To My Family. Even Though They Work For About 8 Hours A Day. My Mom Says That It Is A Federal Law Saying That They Have To Give A 10 Minutes For Every 4 Hours That The Person Works. Is My Mom Correct?
There are not any laws requiring breaks under federal or state statutes.
Idaho Labor Law: Breaks
Idaho law does not require employers to give employees any type of break. Policies regarding breaks are up to the employer. Employees may have to negotiate breaks with employers based on a physical condition. It is also up to the employer whether meal breaks are paid. Employers are, however, required to notify employees if there is a change in company policy.
Federal Law: Breaks
There are several federal laws regarding breaks that cover all states. According to the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), no employer is required to provide meal breaks. If the employer does provide meal breaks, they are required to pay for that time only if the employee is not fully relieved from duty during the break or if the meal break is less than half an hour long. If you need a meal break for religious purposes, such as a daily prayer, it is possible to request reasonable accommodation. The employer must fulfill this request unless they can prove that it would cause excessive harm to the business. The Americans with Disabilities Act states that those with disabilities can also request reasonable accommodation.

Is There Contempt Of Court Attorneys Out There. Also Can You Appeal A Contempt Of Court Decision.?
A Family Member Got 2 Contempt Of Court Charges, I Thought They Were Only 30 Days? He Got 60 Days For Each Count. He Got Sentenced 120 Days, Which Is 4Moths In Jail. How Can You Appeal This Unfair Decision? He Got Contempt 1 And 2.
Appealing a contempt of court? That's pretty darn hard, because the only way you get that is to ignore what a judge has told you to do.
He can hire an attorney, but the very best way to get out from under a contempt charge is to apologize to the judge and convince him that it was all a mistake.
Which School Is Better To Go To Become A Civil Lawyer? Florida States University Or University Of Central Flor?
I Recently Went To The Ucf Website & It Seems Like They Have The Perfect Majors For What Im Trying To Become, A Civil Lawyer. But Fsu I Can'T Find The Exact Major When I Go To Their Website. I Would Really Like To Hear From Someone Who Has Attend Either School. Especially A Lawyer Who Has Graduated From Either School. (& The Best Major That I Should Major In From Either School.) Thanks.
Before choosing law school I would advise talking to recent graduates from law school. Browse forums for law graduates like the one below. The current economic recession has been very harsh for law school graduates. Every job opening appears to have a ridiculously large number of applicants (including openings for civil law). The business models for law firms have been under criticism and only gotten worse in the recession. Lawyers who want to go into civil service are overwhelmed with extreme competition for jobs. There just aren't enough openings.
I know this because I looked into law school recently. I am an engineer who studied health care at FSU. I thought patent attorneys might be in high demand, but the recession has overwhelmed that field. So I switched directions to clinical trials outside of FSU. I do have a graduate degree from FSU. I gave up on law school. It seems too hard. By contrast, engineers who specialize in clinical trials are in high demand, especially if they studied healthcare like I did at FSU.
If you really want to go to law school, then you need to (1) maximize the chances of employment and (2) add a backup plan in case (1) doesn't work. Law schools are divided into tier 1, tier 2, tier 3, etc. A tier 1 graduate generally has a much better chance of employment than a tier 2 graduate. There are exceptions, but the pattern is obvious. Within tier 1, the top 14 law schools such as Cal-Berkeley, Chicago, Harvard, Yale, etc. get the best options. But even some of their graduates have struggled recently. Within Florida, UF is the highest ranked law school, so your chances would be best there. FSU comes in at a close 2nd, and their graduates tend to work in the "I-4 corridor." So UF and FSU would be highly advised, especially if you want to avoid debt.
Next, add a backup plan. If you graduate from law school and can't get a job immediately, then what is the alternative? A dual JD program like JD-MPH, JD-PharmD, JD-MD, JD-engineering, JD-Accounting, etc. would be something to look at. If I were a young undergraduate with a lot of energy, I would get a dual JD and master's in a high-demand field. The master's could be in medical billing, medical informatics, physician's assistant, nursing, etc. The dual degrees can help maximize chances of law employment and allow a backup plan if legal jobs cannot be found. Or, it can give you a "place to work until a legal job opens up." A dual degree plan is like the spread option in football used by some college coaches. Multiple options give you more chances to succeed. It's like mixed martial arts in the UFC. A person who only knows karate is vulnerable in UFC. But if a person knows both karate and judo (2 black belts) then success is much more likely. The horrible recession requires professional workers to be multi-dimensional to survive without fear of layoffs or unemployment. The working world is cruel, but you can fight back.
Many forums advise not attending a law school outside the "T14." But with a dual option you could survive if the backup plan is realistic. For example, if a law graduate can't get a job as an attorney but earned a dual master's of nursing, medical informatics, or physician's assistant or medical accounting, then the backup will work. At some point in the future when the job market improves, the legal jobs can return. Backup plans allow you to survive in a recession and thrive when the market returns because you can be a multi-dimensional lawyer with dual degrees and dual work experience. Law firms would prefer that in my opinion when the legal job market returns.
My favorite movie about law firms is the "Devil's Advocate." Keanu Reeves plays a UF law school graduate who somehow manages to earn a job at a top law firm in New York that normally just hires from the top 14 law schools. It's mostly a fictional horror film about "God" versus "The Devil." But some of the scenes with the wealthy, hypercompetitive lawyers seem realistic. Al Pacino plays the head of the law firm.
If You Give An Attorney A Retainer (I.E. $500.00) Shouldn'T Their Services Be Deducted From That Amount?
Once The $500 Is Used Up Then You Would Be Responsible For Sending In Additional Funds. Am I Wrong On This?
While I can't say for sure how all states interpret the Model Rules of Professional Conduct (the basis for most state's ethical rules), the general requirement is that attorney's fees must be reasonable for the service provided. As such, a retainer is typically viewed as an advance deposit for fees and expenses which should be billed against the retainer (as an attorney has not earned the retainer until he/she has performed legal services). Obviously, if the bills exceed the retainer (and it is difficult to see how a $500.00 retainer would be adequate to cover any matter involving litigation), the client can be required to pay those additional fees.

There are so many variables. I have worked with immigration issues for employment purposes. I don't know what your situation is, but you should probably contact an immigration attorney. Good luck!
