Who Is The Best Child Custody/Family Law Attorney In Western Pennsylvania?

They Have The Best Local Attorney On Retainer. (They Did This When They Found Out I Had Contacted Him, But Had Not Hired Him Yet.) Please Let Me Know Who You Recommend And Why. Personal Stories Are Appreciated, As Well As Professional Recommendations Based On Record. Thank You All For Your Assistance!
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. You might also call your local Domestic Relations Division and ask the clerks there for some names of some good attorneys.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (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.)
You can check to see if the attorney is listed in "Martindale-Hubbell" which is one of the older established listing services for attorneys. Their website http://www.martindale.com/home.aspx allows you to search for attorneys by practice area and location. Martindale also has a voluntary rating system, based on peer review, rating lawyers by accumen (A B or C) and also may include an ethics rating (V for high ethics rating). Martindale also has a voluntary client review system. While both to a degree are somewhat self-serving because they are voluntary, there are some objective standards such as minimum number of years of practice required for each rating, and it generally does still require that the lawyer have enough experience working with other lawyers, judges and clients to have gathered enough contacts in the field to have a peer group and client base that holds them in regard.
On the flipside, you can check to see if there is any reason to be wary of an attorney you are considering by checking his or her record with the local and state bar association to see if there have been any complaints filed. Again the mere presence of a complaint or complaints is not necessarily indicative of a bad attorney as some clients simply file a complaint when they are not satisfied with the outcome of their matter even if the attorney bore no fault in the result but it is something you can consider when evaluating an attorney for possible representation of you for your matters.
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - 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 for the FIRST meeting? (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.)

Lawyer Fees, $10,000?
Case Is Sexual Assault. Lawyer Charges Us $10G. Is This Really How They Charge Here? I'M Just New In States U Know.
I doubt that's the total fee - its probably just a retainer. You could end up paying a lot more than that. You will really, really want to make sure you know exactly how you will be charged and how that $10k will cover and what it will be used for.
Is My Job In Violation Of Labor Laws?
I Currently Work Third Shift And Just Recently Our Supervisor Has Taken Away Our 15-Minute Break Periods, Citing That Due To Work Performance Issues That This Decision Had To Be Made. He Said That &Quot; He Was Doing Us A Favor&Quot; In Giving Us The Breaks. We Work 10-Hour Shifts And At Times, Are Mandated To Stay Up To 2 Hours After We Are Scheduled To Leave Work. I Was Always Told That If We Work More Than Four Hours On A Shift That We Are To Receive 2 15-Minute Breaks As Well As Our 30-Minute Lunch Break. Has My Employer Violated Any Labor Laws? I Reside And Work In Indiana And Thank You In Advance For Your Help.
Not labor laws by the State or Federal government.
However he may have violated contract law for the type of work done and where it is done or Union terms.
I also work 3'rd shift and can have 8, 10 , or 12 hour shifts +30 mins for meal. Our contract with the client only says we must take 30 mins away from our station for meals. Hence the 10.5 hr shift is only paid 10. No breaks are written into the contract, however common sense allows us to take responsible small breaks to limit fatigue.
BTY per the Dept of Labor breaks are not required as mentioned above. This is a per company / contract issue.

Laws and Regulations on This Topic
Federal law does not require lunch or coffee breaks. However, when employers do offer short breaks (usually lasting about 5 to 20 minutes), federal law considers the breaks as compensable work hours that would be included in the sum of hours worked during the work week and considered in determining if overtime was worked. Unauthorized extensions of authorized work breaks need not be counted as hours worked when the employer has expressly and unambiguously communicated to the employee that the authorized break may only last for a specific length of time, that any extension of the break is contrary to the employer's rules, and any extension of the break will be punished.
Bona fide meal periods (typically lasting at least 30 minutes), serve a different purpose than coffee or snack breaks and, thus, are not work time and are not compensable.
