3 Strategies To Know You've Picked The Correct Lawyer It's pretty intimidating to endure the court system, particularly if you lack confidence within your legal team. Allow me to share three important methods to know that you've hired the correct lawyer: 1. They Are Experts In Your Form Of Case Legislation is frequently tricky which requires specialists to tackle the tough cases. When you really need an attorney, try to find one who relates to the challenge you're facing. Even when a relative or friend recommends you use a firm they understand, when they don't have got a focus that's comparable to your case, keep looking. Whenever your attorney is definitely an expert, especially in the problem you're facing, you already know you've hired the best one. 2. The Lawyer Carries A Winning Record According to the circumstances, it might be difficult to win a case, particularly if the team helping you has virtually no experience. Try to find practices which may have won numerous cases that affect yours. Even though this is no guarantee that you case will be won, it provides you with a significantly better shot. 3. They Listen And Respond In case the attorney you've chosen takes the time to listen to your concerns and reply to your inquiries, you've probably hired the right choice. Regardless of how busy these are or how small your concerns seem off their perspective, it's critical that they react to you inside a caring and timely manner. From the point of view of a typical citizen who isn't acquainted with the judicial system, court cases might be pretty scary you will need updates as well as feel as if you're portion of the solution. Some attorneys are simply just considerably better to both you and your case than the others. Make sure you've hired the best team for the circumstances, to ensure that you can put the matter behind you as fast as possible. Faith within your legal representative is step one to winning any case.

Im Searching For An Employment Attorney In Ala?
My Employer Takes My Vacation Away From Me If I'M Out Of Work Sick Even Though I Have A Doctor'S Excuse.I'M Salary Exempt That Means That I Don'T Get Paid For Any Over Time I Have A Set Salary.
if that is their sick policy then it is legal for them to do
once all your paid time off is used then they can not deduct from your wages due to a full days illness.
they can deduct for a full days absence for personal reasons even if you have PTO to use..
a doctors excuse is proof of your illness, without it they could consider this a personal day.
to understand what deductions can be made see:
if there was a violation or if you question what they are doing you do NOT need an attorney. you file a wage complaint with your states department of labor:
if i were you i would be more interested in seeing if my job was legitimately "exempt" many salary positions are NOT actually exempt.
then look at the fact sheets for exempt positions.
When Winning A Civil Litigation Case, Is It A Gamble Like Other Lawyers Say?
I Believe That If One Has Convincing Evidence, The Person To Win Will Be The One With The Most Convincing Evidence. But My Lawyers Say That It Is A Gamble And That People Whio Are Innocent Lose And People Who Are Guilty Can Also Win. They Say That Judges Are Not That Good In Claims Courts, But What Do You Think? Is It True That It Is A Gamble?
1.) What are 12 random people off the street going to believe? (sometimes the jury is 8 people in civil).
2.) Do you know every single technicality of law? If you trip on one you might loose.
3.) You are bias in favor of yourself. They say "A lawyer that represents himself has a fool for a client."
Yes, it is a gamble. It is always a gamble. Trial law is incredibly hard. It is one thing to say stuff and quite another to say it when you're under pressure and a judge is looking at you and a jury.
It is absolutely a gamble. The law is not black and white in a courtroom. Who knows how a witness will portray him or herself to the jury. Who knows how the judge will come out on a rule of evidence.
Legal Custody Issues?
My Brother Has Had His Son For Over A Year. He Has Lived With Him Even Though My Nephew'S Mother Had Legal Custody, Reason Being, She Got Back Into Her Drug Habit. Well After Living With My Brother All This Time (He Lived In Texas Until Recently) And He Moved Back To Oklahoma And Now The Mom Has Sobered Up (Supposedly) And One Day Went And Got My Nephew From School. My Brother Called Her And Said &Quot;Where Are You So I Can Come Pick My Son Up?&Quot; And She Said &Quot;I Think He Should Live With Me, Especially Durring School Days. Would You Like To Come Get Him For The Weekend?&Quot; My Brother Said &Quot;No, I Want To Come Get My Son And Bring Him Home, Because He Lives With Me...?&Quot; And She Said &Quot;Well The Papers Say I Have Custody&Quot; And Those Papers Were From Years Ago. I Know My Brother Needs To Take Her Back To Court, But Isn'T There A Law That States, If You Have The Child For A Certain Amount Of Time And The Other Parent Dosen'T Even Attempt To Come Get The Child And Dosen'T Even Call To Ask For The Child, That The Other Parent Is Then The Custodial Parent?
Your brother isn't too bright. The second his child came to live with him, he should have gone to court, reversed custody and had child support awarded to him. Because he didn't, the child's mother has taken the child back and will probably demand that he pay back child support.
Your brother needs to get a lawyer NOW and go back to court...he should ask for a transfer of custody to him based on the fact that he had the child unofficially for the last year and that it is in the child's best interest to continue that residence with his father AND on the grounds that the child's mother has a problem with drugs, such that she abandoned her child for a good year.
Your brother may or may not get custody back...if he doesn't, that will because he didn't do the right thing (file for custody) at the right time. But even if he doesn't get custody, he should demand random alcohol and drug testing for the mother...and if he does get custody back, then he should have that random drug testing instituted as part of the visitation. Oh, and even if he does get custody back, he will legally owe the child's mother that "child support", which will be a painful and expensive lesson for him.
One last thing...there is no law that states that if the custodial parent abandons the child for a year loses all rights to the child UNLESS the non-custodial parent goes to court to gain custody themselves. Tell your brother he needs a good lawyer now. Good luck and God bless!
What Could I Do At A Law Office?
I'M Seventeen Years Old. I Was Just Wondering If Anyone Knows Something I Could Do At A Law Office At That Age. Either A Job Or Volunteer Work, Doesn'T Matter, But What Would I Need To Be Able To Do It And What Would I Have To Do For The Job/Volunteer Work?
When I managed a major law firm we hired many high school students who worked as apprentices. These students were supplied through the local high schools 'Education to Careers" program, they were paid at a minimum wage, and several even stayed on and later went on to become paralegals, or went onto also attain law degrees (some even got part of their education paid for by the firm). Work that was available was: filing, running errands to the courthouse, sorting mail and delivering it, picking up after conferences, putting postage on outgoing mail, preparing mass mailings, putting up stationary supplies, running deposits to the bank, making copies for staff members, keeping library materials up to date, watering office plants, transporting files around the office to various team members, just to name a few things. You will find that there is always lots to do in a firm to keep busy and it can be very interesting work, however you must be ready to keep whatever information you hear or see completely confidential, and be of good character where you would not cause embarrassment by your actions outside of the firm, as most firms are concerned with their reputations.

I Was Also On The Waiting List For A Two Bedroom Elsewhere (At Another Apartment Complex) In May 2009 The 2 Bedroom Became Available And I Accepted The Offer. All Of My Information That I Submitted To These 2 Apartments Were True (Place Of Employment And Income) The One Bedroom Apartment Was Too Small To House Myself And My 3 Children So I Wanted To Break The Lease But I Was Told That Even If I Do I Would Still Have To Pay The Rent Until They Found A New Occupant (This Is A Subsidized Unit So I Was Getting Assistance From Hud) Now My 2 Bedroom Apartment Is Teling Me That Hud Will Not Assist Me With The Rent Because They Are Still Helping Me With The 1 Bedroom In Which I Don'T Need. I Just Don'T Want To Break The Lease And Continue To Pay In That Case I Should Keep The 1 Bedroom Instead Of Paying For A Space I No Longer Lease. Will Hud Still Assist Me With This 2 Bedroom If I Terminate My Lease For The 1 Br Unit. This Is Not Fraud I Provided Them With The Correct Information
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle apartment leases/real estate contracts. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
-Do they give FREE, initial consultations? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
-Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
Will The U.S.Patent Office Or Patent Lawyers Are Located Inside City Hall Buildings?''?
Which Is The Court Building?'And If So Do They Offer Free Consultation Regarding On Problem About Invention Cases Such As Disclosure,Or Do Anyone Had Knowledge And Referred The Right Agency That Can Handle This Kind Of Commitment Or Agreement?''
most federal courts have a patent office, but the best help is to find and call a patent lawyer and ask if they have a pamphlet on patent laws and good advice on patent agreements, also any law library will help with that information.
