Lawyer Jobs Other Than Case Litigation?
Other Than Case Litigation (Arguing Cases In A Courtroom) What Other Professions Are Open To Lawyers? I Know That The Spectrum Is Wide, But If At All Possible To Narrow That Spectrum To A Select Few Or Best, It Would Be Appreciated. Thanks
Once someone graduates from law school they have to pass their State Bar Examination. then they are a lawyer.
At that point, the new lawyer can practice any type of law they want (with one exception - patent prosecution before the Patent Office)
There are many lawyers who never see the inside of a courtroom. Contracts, law advocates, administrative law, in house counsel, corporate law... Litigation is just one area.
Is It Possible To Be A Criminal And Business Lawyer At The Same Time?
I Was Wondering If I Can Study To Become A Business And Criminal Lawyer? I Was Thinking Of Taking The Lawyer Career Path But I Know Nothing About It.
Also, If Anyone Could Direct Me To A Lawyer Who Is Both A Business And Criminal Lawyer It Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
Im a candidate attorney and I work only in the commercial sphere. With the hours that you put in working in the business sector you would never have time to appear in court and do the research necessary to be a criminal lawyer. Not if you ever want to sleep or eat.
I have friends who do criminal work and its pretty much a 24 hour a day job. You never know when a client will call you from a cell. My advice is yo pick one to specialise in. You would be doing your clients a disservice by trying to do both - you could never fully act in the best interests of your client. Criminal work is also a lot more demanding than commercial because you dont work normal business hours.

I Am A First Time Non Violent Offender, Born To Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, And Suffer From Mental And Social Issues (Speed, Public Pressure, Etc). I Am Afraid Of Living Now That I'M A Registered Level 1 Offender For A E Felony Which Was A Bad Mistake On My End And I'M Now In The Spotlight And Everyone Turned On Me In A Instant. I'M Not Into Underage At All And I'M Going To Prove That With State Testing. I Have No Income At All And I Was Rushed Through The Courts As Fast As They Could Do It. My Legal Aid Lawyer F'Ed Me Over Big Time And Told Me To Plea Guilty Stating I'D Be In Prison Instead Of The Deal Of 10Yrs Probation, 20Yrs Sex Offender Registration. I Have No Family I Can Be With, And My Only Friends Turned On Me. I Am Jobless And About To Be Homeless With The Terms Of Probation (Can'T Be Near Anything At All According To The Maps). I Am 30 Years Old, I Was In Special Ed Most Of My Life (Up To 14) And I Suffered Childhood Abuse (Physical) As Well As Witnessing My Own Parents Fighting When They Were Drunk. I Hate Pedophiles As Much As Anyone Else And I Made The Mistake Of 3 Still Photos Which Weren'T Even Sex Acts. The Costs Of Treatment, Testing, And Probation Is Screwing Me Over.

Face the facts. You're not getting your family back. You're not getting your friends back. You're not getting off the list. Your old life is over. Accept that.
You need to work with your treatment providers and whatever social organizations you can find to make the best of the life that you're now facing.
New York State Criminal Law; Assualt In The Second Degree?
Hi, I Have A Few Questions About Criminal Law In New York State.
My Father Was Recently Charged With Assault In The Second.
An Individual Showed Up To His Home And Initated An Altercation With My Father.
My Father Remained In Doors And Allowed His Girlfriend To Tell The Individual To Leave.
To Make This More Understandble The Individual Is The Ex Husband Of My Fathers Girlfriend.
So After Getting Him To Leave And Telling Him He Was Not Welcome Back. Things Seemed To Calm Down.
Now His Girlfriend Left With A Friend. Then The Subject Showed Back Up To The House With A &Quot;Weapon, In The Nature Of A &Quot;Dangerous Instrument&Quot; Which Was A Heavy Walking Stick, Like You Could Buy.
Now My Father Came Out To Tell Him To Leave Ect And They Got Into An Arguement And The Subject Attacked My Father And My Father Swong Back With His &Quot; Walking Cane&Quot; Now They'Re Charging My Father With Assault In The Second Degree. While The Other Individual That Showed Up To His Property Is Getting Off Scott Free. Now The Individual Finally Left, And Then Later &Quot;Went To The Hospital&Quot; He Was Kept Over Night For Two Nights, And Treated For Minor Injuries That Were Not Found Sufficent No Stiches, Breaks Ect.. He Was Kept For Liver And Kidney Problems Associated With His &Quot;Heavy Drinking And Drug Use.
Can They Charge My Father For Fighting Back On His Own Property When The Individual Was Told He Wasn'T Allowed On The Property And Then Returned An Started A Fight. Now Also My Father And His Girlfriend Do Not Use A House Phone They Share A Cell Phone, Which The Girlfriend Had With Her At The Time So He Couldn'T Call For Help From The Police.
Can They Charge Him With Assault?
He Defended Himself And His Home From An Individual Who Was Not Welcomed.
How Is That Grounds For A Fellony Charge For Assault?
Any Help With This Matter Would Be Greatly Apreciated!
I'M Taking &Quot;The Case&Quot; I Prepare, To The Public Defender On His Behalf.
Your father needs a good criminal attorney, not a public defender. Although you have an absolute right to defend yourself, authority figures probably have no idea of the facts of the case. If your post is accurate, it looks as if there are several mitigating factors to get the case, not filed by the prosecutor, or if filed, reduced and even dismissed by a judge/jury. Yes, he can be charged as he inflicted injuries on another, however, he is entitled to his day in court to explain that he was threatened/attacked and simply defended himself. I believe facts that will help his case are: (1) the other fellow came to your father's house, (2) the other fellow initiated the altercation, (3) initially, your father showed restraint in not going outside, (4) the other fellow was told to leave and not come back, (5) the other fellow trespassed and returned with a weapon, (6) your father ask him to leave a second time, (7) your father was attacked and defended himself at his home. I believe that once a prosecutor hears ALL the facts of the case, he/she will elect not to go forward with the case or if so a judge/jury will find that sufficient mitigating factors exist to reduce charges or dismiss the case altogether.
Anybody Got Any Business Legal Advice?
I Quit My Job Took My 401K To Open A Body Shop. Found A Building & Lanlord Said She Checked With The Town & I Could Do It There.I Spent 12G Getting The Shop Ready Leaving Me Only 7G Left & Almost Ready To Open. Today The Town Shut Me Down & Says I Cant Have A Body Shop There. They Also Said They Shut Down 2 Others That Tried To Open There. That Means My Landlord New All The Time The Town Wouldnt Allow It, And Lied. They Took My Money And Saw All The Money I Was Spending On This Place Knowing What Was Going To Happen. Now Im Dead In The Water. I Just Dont Know What To Do Next. Anybody Got Any Good Advice?
a few things first off I know you have spent money already but you may need an attorney. 2nd I presume this must be a small town and it has to do with a zoning issue. Before making too big of waves try to reason with the town council(do this before the attorney). If your land lord rented you this place full well knowing that you could not open your business there then they committed at the very least fraud. They would have to give your money back. Try to find the legal terms for this and present them to the landlord. If they don't budge you may need to sue. let them know that if you have to sue then you will also sue for lost revenue. this would come from if they in fact knew you could not open a business there but they rented to you and said it was cleared with the town. you could recoup possible lost revenue due to the fact that you could have been in business elsewhere or working. check all your facts first and make sure that they did know you could not open shop there. I would try to find out about the other 2 who tried to open there also maybe this person shafted them also? The town may not even be able to legally say you cannot open your business there. so check that also. hope this helps. I am not a lawyer or anything but have been through much in life and was a manager in fast food for 10 years. Good luck hon
Lawyers Only, Or People With Personal Experience...?
I Want To Leave My Husband And Move Back To Louisiana And I Know That I Cannot Legally Take My Daughter With Me Against His Wishes, But I'M Pregnant Right Now.What I Need To Know Is Whether Or Not I'Ll Have More Rights To Keeping My Baby In Louisiana If He'S Born There. Is He Then Considered A Resident?
Since I know absolutely nothing of your personal situation the first thing to remember is that the courts are required to act in the best interest of the child(ren). I know that you are thinking that your husband has control over your daughter, but that has yet to be determined by a court. Your best bet to keeping both your children is to go home for a vacation/break or some space or whatever you need as an excuse to go. As soon as you can establish residency which depending on circumstance could be immediately or whatever the state requirement is. For instance if your spouse is in the military and you traveled to his duty station to be with him, that does not remove your resident status in your home state in most instances. The trick is to be consistent in such things as absentee voting or maintaining a legal record of "Permanent Address" in your home state. Some states maintain that if you were married there, they can establish jurisdiction in divorce proceedings...hopefully a LA. lawyer will respond as well. Anyhow enough of the rabbit trail, what you also need to consider is the best interest of the child(ren). If your spouse is abusive, do not leave your daughter in that environment. On the other hand, if your spouse is a loving and caring father and can better provide for the well being of the child, maybe he would be the best custodial parent, at least until you get re-settled. Next thing to consider if your husband is not abusive to you or your children, is maybe you are facing tough times and issues that you can resolve as a couple, perhaps with some counselling to help facilitate the communication walls that we as humans invariably put up when we are emotionally upset. You must have had strong feelings for this man to have married him and have two pregnancies by him, evaluate if the relationship is worth saving, but if it is that irrepairable, children are better off being from a broken home than in one...best of luck!
