Finding An Experienced Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will see that there are loads of lawyers in your area that advertise they are experts in your sort of case. This could make the entire process of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the tips below it will be possible to narrow down your search off to the right one in almost no time. The initial step is to create a listing of the lawyers which can be listed in your town specializing in your situation. While you are making this list you ought to only include those you have a good vibe about depending on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down by using a little while evaluating their website. There you must be able to find how many years they have been practicing plus some general information about their success rates. At this stage your list ought to have shrunken further to the people that you just felt had professional websites plus an appropriate volume of experience. You need to then spend some time to look up independent reviews of each attorney. Be sure you browse the reviews rather than just depending on their overall rating. The data inside the reviews will give you a concept of the direction they connect with the clientele and how much time they invest into each case that they are concentrating on. Finally, you should talk to no less than the last three lawyers which have the credentials you are searching for. This provides you with time to truly evaluate how interested they can be in representing you and the case. It is vital that you follow all of these steps to actually find a person that has the best level of experience to help you the best possible outcome.

How Do You Find The Best Lawyer For Your Case?
Where Do You Look, Ask, Etc.?
That's the best question I've seen in a long time, but the answer isn't pleasant. There is no easy way, and the game is rigged to keep it that way.
There are no "consumer reports" on lawyers or doctors, and their professional associations fight to keep it that way. You must rely on word-of-mouth, ridiculous advertisements, and time spent doing things the hard way. You didn't mention civil or criminal, and there are some differences.
Lawyers are kind of like employees, and if you have the time and means, you should "interview" several of them to see if they pass your requirements. Many states have guidelines concerning this: a lawyer may be required to provide a free consultation (usually 1/2 hour) to meet with you and you tell him what you want and he tells you about himself.
If it's a criminal case, then you want to know specific things: is he qualified to appear in the court hearing your case, has he handled similar cases to yours, and did he win or lose. These are all public records, but they are somewhat hard to find and hard to understand by yourself. Your best bet may be to (get this) hire a lawyer or at least a paralegal to do this research for you. They have access to the databases containing the records, and they understand what they are looking for.
Finally, bear in mind that most lawyers are not completely corrupt. They usually will tell you if they feel it might not be a good fit, or they think someone else might have a better chance of helping you.
What Do I Say?I Have To Meet An Influential Lady Tomorrow To Help Find A Job,Or Internship At A Law Firm?
I Am Broke, And I Don'T Know If I Should Be Looking For A Job, A Part Time Job Or Just For An Internship Since Am A Law Student.What Do I Do?She'S A Former First Lady Of Ghana.
As a law student, your primary duty is to your education. So, you do not want to do any work which will infringe on the major time needed to study. The very, very best job for a law student is with a law firm. That way you can actually see what you are studying in real life.
As for the decision of the type of work. You may not be able to do justice in your education if you work full time. Unless the full time is only during the summer break. If you work for a law firm, you may want to work on a part-time or per hour basis. Offering to work part-time/per hour whenever the firm needed you, on their call, may be helpful to the law firm who needs someone but not on a regular basis.
While internships for law students are great, remember they pay nothing. So you need to decide if you can afford to work for free.
What you should say to the First Lady of Ghana is "I am honored to meet you". Do not expect her to be able to find you a job, she may only be able to get you an initial interview. Be grateful for whatever she offers. If she does get you in, remember the thank you note and that your work will reflect of your mentor. Good luck.

What'S The Difference Between Legal Representation & Legal Aid?
They are the same thing...Legal Aid is just free. You need to qualify to get it ( as in low income etc) but they will represent you for free.
Normally you pay to get Legal Representation. Everyone is entitled to be represented in court, so that is where Legal Aid stepped in, to make sure everyone had the chance.
Legal Question, Got Fired From My Job.. Please Read?
Like Many People Out There. I Worked For A Machine Shop For 3 Years And When The Work Load Got Slow I Got Fired. I Will Try To Make This Very Short. For The Past Year I Have Delt With Some Health Problems. I Had To Take Several Days Off Work Here And There Due To Being Sick. Over The Summer, My Job Worked With Me Alot. I Had Doctors Excuses When I Would Miss Work. There Was Even A Time A Couple Months Back That I Had To Miss Alot. When The Weather Got Very Hot And Humid, I Would Get Dizzy And Throw Up Alot. I Went In My Human Resources Office And Sat Down With Them And Was Going To Quit. They Were Working Us 10 Hour Shifts With Only A 20 Minute Lunch For The Day. There Was Very Little Circulation In The Shop With No Air Conditioning. I Was Going To Quit, But They Let Me Take A Couple Weeks Off. Unpaid, But I Still Had A Job. The Weather Started To Get Better And I Returned To Work After 2 Weeks.
Anyways The Work Load Started To Get Slow. Everyone Was Down To 8 Hour Shifts. People Taking Vacation Left And Right Cause Of No Work To Do. They Pulled Me In The Office And Said I Was On Probabtion For Attendance. I Couldnt Miss A Day In 90 Days Or Else I Would Be Fired. A Couple Weeks After That, The Company Gave Us Free Flu Shots. I Got A Flu Shot And Got Sick For Two Days And Had To Stay Home. I Called In To My Supervisor And I Had A Note From My Doctor Excusing Me For Those Days I Missed. Says Clearly On The Note Due To Illness. When I Returned To Work, They Fired Me Over This!!
My Question Is, Can They Fire Me Over Being Ill And Having A Doctors Excuse? I Filed For Unemployment And They Approved Me No Problem. But I Actually Enjoyed My Job And Would Rather Be Employed There Then Sit At Home On My Butt. Can They Do This By Law? People Keep Telling Me I Can Get Them In Trouble? How Do I Go About That?
I think you should check with your local 'Legal Aid' office, or low-cost legal help.
When they put you on probation, did they give you anything in writing? Did they have an employee handbook that spelled out how they would handle sick days, etc.?
Read your paperwork carefully. It sounds like they were looking for an excuse to get rid of you.
You might also want to check with your local OSHA office, etc. Did they give you other breaks during the day? I don't know your local labor laws. In California, they have to give a 30 minute lunch break for over 6 hours worked, and one 15 minute break for each 4 hours worked - so a 10 hour day would have 30 min. lunch and 2 15 min. breaks.
Hi, I Need A Good Juvenile Case For Law Class, Something Nice And Good. By Good I Mean Nice And Debatable, Something Interesting Please. Thanks In Advance!
How about juvenile sex offenders? While awaiting adjudication, should they be allowed to attend school? If he goes to school, should the school be informed about the nature of the offense? Who at the school should be notified? All the teachers, or just his teachers? Does he need to be escorted to all of his classes, and even to the restroom, just to keep other students safe? Does it matter who the victim is? What treatment should this juvenile be ordered into?
I have a 15 year old sex offender on my case load right now, and I have to consider those things. He was in detention for a month, but because his fact-finding (trial) cannot be held yet, he had to be released from detention. Should he be on electronic monitoring while awaiting his trial? Where should he live? With dad, who has 2 young daughters? With mom, with no other children in the home, even though she cannot get him to mind her? With his grandparents?
Does it matter that the victim is a relative? What if the grandparents are also the grandparents of the victim?
What if the victim's mother doesn't want charges pressed? What do you think should happen?
