Questions For All Lawyers!!!!?
I Keep Hearing That Unless You Are A Yale Or Harvard Graduate, That Lawyers Don'T Make A Lot Of Money. That They Make Decent Figures But That It Is Not Like What Many Would Imagine.
Is This True? Also How Is The Job Security Of Lawyers?
I am an employment lawyer. I have my own firm. I am not rich. To the poster who said all lawyers are rich, please tell me how I can be rich when I only made $8,500 last year. The line that all lawyers are rich is wrong and totally out of date.
Since the 1970's law schools become more interested in selling classing than training a few talented lawyers to take up the few jobs available. If you go to one of those meet & greets put on by law schools the school's salesman (yes that is what that person is no matter what their title is) will promise you that you will get a job and make lots of money. Once you sign up for the school you will never see the salesman again -- you have been conned.
So now we have more lawyers being turned out from law school, twice a year, than there are jobs. And when the law schools report how many of their graduates get jobs they count anyone who works in a law firm or legal dept including secretaries, clerks, paralegals, receptionists. Two years ago the American Bar Assoc did a survey about salaries and found the average starting salary is around $40,000, and the the new attorney carries around $100,000 educational debt.
There is no guarantee that graduating from Yale or Harvard will help, but the facts are that more of those graduates get jobs. The only for sure way to know you will get a job is to have mommy or daddy in the legal profession and pull some strings for you.
Job security is the same as everyone else. Places like findlaw.com, the national law journal, and the American Bar Assoc newsletters are filled with massive layoffs from the big firms. Many of these huge firms have already announced they will not be hiring anyone right out law school until 2011. The only job security in this profession is owning your own law firm --- and then you will have the problem of putting all your time 24/7 into the firm and getting low pay.

Can A Court Appointed Lawyer Refuse To Drop Representation Of A Client?
Not sure what you mean? Who is asking them to drop the case? If the client is, then yea, the client can request via the court for a new court appointed attorney. (Or they can cough up some dough and retain a private lawyer). The court can refuse to drop that attorney from your case, but not the lawyer.
If the defendant wants a new court appointed lawyer, they need to have a sound basis for the request of a new lawyer, otherwise the court might not grant your request. Keep in mind that you can't handpick your court appointed lawyer. That's why they call them "court appointed" - because they are appointed by the court to represent you. You can make the request if there is one that you know of, but it is totally up to the court and availability of that lawyer.
If you think the current lawyer can't handle the complexities of your case, then make the request. But if it is just because you had an emotional spat, then you should try to set your feelings aside and make amends. Otherwise you will just be basically waiving your right to a speedy trial because the new lawyer will have to start all over from the beginning to learn your case. Understand that the public defender is on your side. Even though they are paid by the government, they are paid to represent YOU because it is your constitutional right to zealous representation. They will do the best job they can to defend your case - anything less would be considered ineffective assistance of counsel. So make your decision wisely. Good luck.
I Was Told Today That A Third Party Can Buy Debt From A Credit Card Company Like A Law Office Is This True?
I agree with gin_in_mi
Generally most law offices do not purchase bad debts.
The collection agencies will continue to own the debts but may turn them over to a law office for collections. It may just be a strong arm tactic on the collection agency's part or it could be a prelude to a law suit.
When a law office is in the practice of debt collection for the collection agency, the law office itself is considered to have a collection agency status. And because of that, the law office is governed by the laws of the FDCPA just as any other collection agency is.
If the law office violates the FDCPA, they can be held liable for the violations just as any collection agency. Plus, they would also have to answer to the Bar Association if a complaint was filed against them for the violations.
Question About Probate Court?
Mom Passed;Can You Just Go To Court For One Item? Like A Car Or Will They Try To Make You Take All Their Items?
The purpose of probate is to wind up the estate. That means to pay off its debts and to distribute whatever assets remain. Unwanted items are generally auctioned off. If you do not want the responsibility of winding up the estate, then do not agree to be its representative or executrix.
Is It Okay To Get A Criminal Attorney?
I Just Got A New Lawyer. He'S A Criminal Lawyer, But Our Case Is A Family Law Case. Is This Okay? What Are The Pros And Cons? Thank You.
You will be better off with a Domestic attorney, one who handles family court issues, unless the issue at hand involves criminal matters. Criminal lawyers only work with criminal matters, unless he/she is "flexible" and does other work other than just criminal (i.e. domestic, ssi, civil, etc.). You should ask your attorney next time you visit if he/she handles family law? If not, your best bet is to get a Domestic attorney.
