Sex Crimes Defense Attorney?
What Is The Average Salary For A Sex Crimes Defense Attorney? One Day I Hope To Be A Partner For A Large Firm.. I'M Currently Attending University For A Ba In Psychology W/ A Minor In Political Science. I Actually Want To Be A Neuropsychologist.. Specializing In Sex, Sexual Deviance And Sex Therapy.. But I Would Also Like To Be Able To Defend Those Accused Of Criminal Sexual Acts. I Guess I Want Two Professions! Any Advice For Me?
A criminal defense attorney who is good and brings in clients, if working for a large well known firm makes over $300,000 a year. Getting to that point can mean many years of work.
Charged sex offenders do not tend to hire private attorneys. Without bringing in paying clients your firm is not going to allow pro bono work, especially for sex cases which makes for poor PR.
To really work sex offender defense you have to become a public defender. They make about the same as prosecutors. In my county about the same a police detective.

Or Accept A Criminal Record And Risk Of Deportation With Your Kids And A Bleak Future? You Really Do Not Think You Are Guilty Of A Crime But The Other Person Was Badly Injured And Your Injuries Were Minor In Comparison. Please Do Not Judge Or Be Nasty-Just Advise Me What You Would Do If This Happened To You -Ty.
Sorry, but there is not really enough information here to make that call.
Lawyers advise their clients to take one action or another based on what the evidence may prove or not prove. If the lawyer believes that the state's case is strong, based on the number of witnesses, the credibility of the witnesses, the forensic evidence and other evidence, the lawyer may advise the client to plead guilty in order to receive a lighter sentence.
That sounds like what has happened here.
But the decision belongs to the client and if the client disagrees with the lawyer and believes that he/she can convince the jury of his/her innocence or self-defense claim, then the client may decide to go to trial. If the client does this, he/she should hire the best lawyer available that agrees with the decision to defend the case.
The only "evidence" you talk about in your question, is the fact that the other guy was hurt worse than the defendant. This will not look good to the judge or jury, as you are only allowed to use the force necessary to defend yourself, not more.
If the other evidence is also stacked up against the defendant, he/she should probably take the lawyer's advice.
My Civil Appeal Is A Complicated Case What Do I Do If I Can'T Afford An Attorney?
My Financial Means Are Limited, And There Were Two Cases Ruled In The Same Manner. (Same District Two Different Court Houses) My Parents Manipulated The Legal System For Their Own Personal Gain. By Then Filing In Two Different Court Houses To Serve Their One Purpose, I Wouldn'T Know Where To Begin.
"My Civil Appeal is a complicated case what do I do if I can't afford an attorney? My financial means are limited, and there were two cases ruled in the same manner. (same district two different court houses) My parents manipulated the legal system for their own personal gain. By then filing in two different court houses to serve their one purpose, I wouldn't know where to begin."
There is no quick answer to your question. And it would help to know what kind of cases were heard, what the issues were, etc.
You generally have a certain period of time to appeal a final ruling-- 30 days comes to mind, but it varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. And, usually, your trial record will have to show that you made timely objections to the issues of law that you disagreed about and that you exhausted your remedies at the trial level (filing for a reconsideration, for example) in order for you to appeal on those issues. The only other reason to appeal is that the judge's ruling was against the manifest weight of the evidence, but Courts of Appeals do not often overturn a trial court judge for that since the presumption is that he did his job correctly.
You'll have to file your leave to appeal within the allotted time. And then you'll have to present the Court of Appeals for that jurisdiction with your appeal-- including a complete record of your case(s). That means the legal arguments with legal citations to back them up and a complete case file and transcripts from the Court Recorder. If you are poor, you may be able to file "in forma pauperis" ("in the form of a pauper") where the courts will assume the costs of your court record and waive certain formal requirements in filing your papers (doesn't need to be typed, doesn't need to be on particular paper with particular fonts, etc.). Persons filing in forma pauperis are also usually given a great deal of latitude in framing their arguments in their filings.
Appeals practice is a specialty in itself, and many trial lawyers send their appeal's cases to those specialists. So, you are in for a steep learning curve with little chance of success against a trained attorney.

Do I Need A Lawyer For A Petty Theft Charge?
I Was Arrested For Attempting To Steal A $ 1.75 Can Of Beer From Cvs (Really Stupid I Know , Was Really Wasted At The Time And Not Thinking). I Was Arrested And Taken To The Local Precinct And Given A Paper With A Court Date. They Released Within The Hour. I`Ve Never Been Arrested Or Fined For Anything In My Life, Never In Trouble With The Law . Should I Get A Lawyer For The Court Date Or Can I Just Represent My Self ? Is This A Charge That I Can Be Sent To Jail For ?
You don't really a lawyer, but if you think you need one, get one. I doubt that you will be sent to jail, just a fine, and possibly probation.
Juvenile Laws In New Jersey?
I Understand In 1 Year I'Ll Be An Adult So I Can Make My Own Decisions, But I Also Know Turning 18 Is A Bigger Responsibility. Now My Questions Are Simple For The Most Part. I'Ll Be Driving Soon And I Don'T Want To Ever Run Into Trouble With The Law,Especially Since I'Ve Had Problems With Dyfs And I Don'T Want Any Interaction With Nj Laws. So My Question Is If Your 17 Are Able To Be Tried As An Adult For Minor Offenses Such As Disorderly Conduct, Disturbing The Peace, Misdemeanors Or Are You Only Charged As An Adult For Rape,Murder, Felonies, Etc. I Have A Court Date With Division Of Youth And Family Services And I'M Not Planning On Answering The Judges Questions Due To The Fact That I Don'T Want My Life On The Front Page Of News. I Want My Life To Remain My Life So The Next Question Is Can The Judge Find Me In Contempt Of Court Even If I'M 17. If So What Will Happen To Me?
Generally, when a youthful offender gets charged and tried as an adult, it is because of a serious crime. BUT, and it is a big but, a long history of juvenile offenses and also lead to adult court. If, for instance, you have a history of setting fires and acts of vandalism, the next fire you set could get you charged as an adult, with Arson, a felony crime.
If you have a court date with the juvenile services, you do have a right to be represented by a lawyer. If you are concerned that the information they want could harm you somehow, I certainly would want a lawyer, who specializes in Juvenile law, there to represent my interests.
If you do have a juvenile record, it will be sealed when you reach 18. Unless you have some serious offense on record, it should not hinder your college plans, and, for the most part, should not hinder entering most professions. If you plan on some career that requires a Top Secret clearance, the investigating authority can access juvenile records in that case. If your offenses are juvenile, i.e., Minor In Possession, shoplifting, traffic offenses, breaking curfew, etc., you need not worry too much. You are not applying for sainthood, just a job. . ., no one expects you to be perfect.
Expungements are not that easy to get. There is a complicated, time consuming, process for expungement. It is not designed to be easy. Typically, you can not ask for expungement until three to five years after the offense. Whoever, in your State, investigates expungement requests will look to see if you have committed any other offenses, they will study the nature and circumstances of the offense you want expunged, and - - - they do not have to grant it. If the judge, who found you in contempt of his court, argues that the charge should not be expunged, it may very well not be.
Hope this helps, good luck.
Question For An Experienced Lawyer Or Someone Involved In The Law?
My Friend Was Recently Arrested For The 2Nd Time For Stealing. The Truth Is, That Both Times She Really Was Innocent. I'Ll Explain Each Situation As Short As Possible And Will Add Details As Ppl Answer.
She Was Charged With A Stolen Credit Card. Her Boyfriend Took Her Out To Dinner And Said His Mom Was Paying. She Had No Idea That The Credit Card Was Stolen. Her Fingerprints Were Found On The Card And Had To Pay Half The Things That Were Stolen. She Was Given No Jail Time, Probation, Or Other Fines. Her Second Offence Recently Happened In A Mall. These Girls That She Has Never Met In Her Life Went Into A Dressing Room With Clothes. They Stuffed Their Bags And Stuff With These Clothes. The Girls Asked My Friend To Hold Their Stuff As They Walked Out While They Did Something (I'M Unaware Of What They Were Doing). The Alarms Went Off And All Of Them Were Arrested. She Said She Pled Guilty At The Mall Regardless Of Her Not Having Representation.
My Question Is This. What Options Does She Have When She Faces Court. Is There Any Possibility Of Avoiding Jail Time. Can She Change Her Plea From Guilty To Innocent If Her Lawyer Can Provide A Legitimate Case. If She Cannot Avoid Jailtime What Is The Minimum She Is Facing. She Is 18 So She Will Be Charged As An Adult. Please Help Me.
You don't plead guilty in a mall. You only plead in court. And she can plead not guilty even if her lawyer can't provide a legitimate case.
