2 Job Offers: Real Estate Tax Law Or Commercial Litigation?
I Received 2 Job Offers, Both Are Legal Assistant/Paralegal Positions. Both Are Small Boutique Law Firms And Located In The Same Vicinity.
One Specializes In Real Estate Law And Minimizing Taxes (Starting $28,000 And 3 Month Probationary Period) And The Second Specializes In Commercial Litigation (Starting $35,000 And 6 Month Probationary Period).
Which Would You Choose And Why? I'M Leaning Towards The Commercial Litigation Law Firm Because Of The Money And I Feel Commercial Litigation Is More Broad. Thanks For Your Time And Advice!
Give some thought to where you will be in 5 years, and that will tell you a lot.
I think your instincts about the commerical litigation job are probably spot on, given the extra pay and the better future job prospects.
You should also consider office environment before making the final commitment. Now that they have made a firm offer, perhaps it is time to tour the place and talk to people who actually work there, if you haven't done so already.
A jeans environment with little overtime that gives generous paid vacation, might not pay as well in gross dollars, but would allow you to go to night school and/or pursue other things that make you happy or more successful in the long run.
You could also go back to the real estate law firm and try to renegotiate a higher offer, if it is something you might be interested in, but the money is holding you back.
I hope this helps a bit.

How To Become A Litigation Attorney?
I Would Quite Like To Become A Barrister. But That Is Very Hard, And You Need To Know The Right People. Which I Don'T. So I Was Wondering How You Become A Litigating Attorney, Step By Step Please, Thank You! It'S Mainly The Stage After Going To University And Getting Your Law Degree I Struggle With When It Comes To Litgation. Again, Thank You!
Litigators are solicitors, not barristers.
1. Do at least 3 years of undergrad (you can get away with doing 2 if you're top 5%)
2. Get into AT LEAST a tier 2 law school (Tier 3 degrees are worth jack all) and graduate in the top 50%.
3. Get hired by a law firm (esp. a litigation firm, or by a large firm with a litigation department).
4. Get courtroom experience (this is easiest working for a small litigation boutique, or working for the DA)
5. Get called to the Bar (finish your article, pass the BAR Exam).
6. Work as a litigator.

Can Someone With Some Insight Please Tell Me What I Should Do? This Is A Bad Man And I Need Advise!
Ignore anything your ex says. Get a lawyer and go to court. Confirm your child's paternity through a dna paternity test. And then have your sole custody confirmed (make sure you retain primary custody and make sure you get the right to determine the child's domicile). Ask for child support and visitation to be set up through the court system. And until a judge orders it, do not let your child's father see the child as he may decide to keep her and file for custody himself. And you don't have to either!
As for his threats that he doesn't have to pay for his child, he knows better but is just hoping you don't know the law. He will have to pay so get it started now as they may not give it to you retroactively. And let him take you to court if he so chooses...as long as you have your own lawyer (but it is best if you do so first). Judges can see through custody cases when the father decides he wants custody but has had nothing to do with his daughter up-to-date, including paying any support monies.
Get a good lawyer. That is step one...and then do what I have advised above. Good luck.
Addendum: Make sure your order of visitation doesn't require any overnight visits until the child turns 3 so she can properly bond with her mother, especially if she is being breastfed!
