The majority of individuals do not think about selecting a legal professional until finally they are in desperate need.

A large, full service law firm has a lot of attorneys with distinct areas of abilities, so hinging on your current legal issue, you can instantly retain the top attorney to match your ongoing need without having to begin your search each time you need legal support.It is most effective to obtain a legal professional you can believe in. You want one with a decent track record, who issincere, efficient, and wins cases. You want to have assurance that they will defend you accurately and charge you reasonably for their products and services. Sometimes a word of mouth from a close friend or business affiliate can be handy, however you should continue to keep your options open and evaluate all the firms accessible, for the reason that when you want legal support, you need it immediately and you need the very best you can afford.

Can You Be A Prosecuting And Defense Attorney?
Not In The Same Case, Of Course! Lol (Although That Would Be Interesting)
I'Ve Been Watching A Lot Of Pheonix Wright (Not Playing, Because I'M Poor) Games Lately, And I'Ve Just Been Wondering If You Could Have Both Jobs. Ie. Sometimes You Defend And Other Times You Prosecute.
Sorry If This Is A Weird Question, This Is What I Think About.
It would be impossible to be both a prosecutor and defense attorney in the same jurisdiction at the same time. Ethical obligations would not allow it. As a prosecutor you would be privy to information that a defense attorney would not normally be privy to, and vice versa.
Generally, being a prosecutor is a full time job that would not allow you to be a defense attorney as well. However, there are part-time prosecutor positions that afford attorney's the opportunity to do private work on the side. Most often, those part time prosecutors practice civil law as well (ex. wills, estates, elder law, etc.).
It is conceivable that one could be a part time prosecutor in one jurisdiction and do some criminal defense work in another jurisdiction. I guess one could work part time as a US attorney, prosecuting federal crimes and still do some private criminal defense at the local level, for example.
Ok, I Was Arrested On October 3Rd For Domectic Violence And Possesion Of Analogues, The Analogue Was Xanax, Which Was Given To Me By My Mother For A Panic Attack, But The Police Took Me In For That, Which Is Understandable Due To It Not Being My Prescription, Because Mine Ran Out And Wasn't Filled Yet, But The Domesti Violence Was For Me Pushing My Father A Month Before, The Officers Asked If I Ever Done Anything And My Father Just Said He Pushed Me, And Said It Was A Month Prior, But They Still Arrested Me For It, Is It Legal To Do So? Or What? I'm Now On Probation For A Year, Pleaded No Contest For The Possession, Which Was Dropped To Attempted Possesion And Plead Guilty To The Domestic, Hich Will Now Remain On My Record, Any Help To Resolve This And Possibly Have It Removed Would Be Greatful.
Well, it is a little too late to figure out what you can do now as you've already plead and you're on probation. They can arrest for a push or a shove a month prior, but it's not typical unless your dad wanted to press charges. (At least that's what I've experienced here in CA-- there needs to be visible proof something happened like bruises or scratches.) You should talk to a lawyer about the possibility of getting your record sealed or expunged; if you don't currently have one, you can try the Legal Aid Society. Word to the wise-- law enforcement prosecutes elder abuse just as fiercely as child abuse in some areas, and it doesn't have to be physical violence (financial abuse counts as well) so you may want to either improve your relationship with your dad or stay away for a bit.
Major For International Law?
Hi I Am Currently A High School Junior And Have Been Looking Into Colleges And I Plan To Become An International Lawyer, However There Isn'T An International Law Major. So What Would My Major Be? Pre-Law? I Have Asked My Counselors And They Don'T Even Know What My Major Would Be (They Can Be Unhelpful At Times). Thanks!
What kind of international law do you want to do?
For public international law, you'll want an international relations/affairs/studies degree. Economics might be good, too, but you'll need a serious background in both to succeed in those law school classes, regardless of the degree you ultimately choose.
For private international law, you'll probably want international business. Take FULL advantage of all arbitration/negotiation classes offered.
You should also consider a language major or minor and at least one semester abroad. The more languages & the more time abroad the better. Keep in mind that law is a graduate degree - you can't study it in the US as an undergraduate. Even if you find undergraduate "law" classes in your major, they won't help for law school. You can get accepted to law school with any major, but for international law you need the background to have any hope of a job in this economy. Skip pre-law - it's a useless major both in terms of law school preparation and real life.

I Live In Alexandercity, Al. I Am Looking For An Attorney Who Will Work With Me On Payments.?
My Husband Just Came Home And We Are In The Middle Of Getting A Divorce And Child Custody Issues. I Need An Attorney As Soon As Possible, But The Only Ones I Seem To Get Are Wanting A Big Down Payment. All I Have Is What Little I Get In Paychecks. I Haven't Done This Before So I Am Not Sure What Else To Do Or Where Else To Go To Find An Attorney. I Have Called Some Pro Bono Law Firms And They Only Like To Do Uncontested Divorces. So If Anyone Has Any Suggestions That Would Be Great.
I'm a lawyer but in a different state. Here is what I suggest. Get a mediator from a local mediation center to help you and your husband divide up the property, deal with child custody, visitation, etc. Get the child support enforcement agency to set up the child support.
Work out an arrangement with your husband on the kids. For example, let him have the kids every other weekend and alternate years on holidays, if he wants.
Those are both either free or very cheap and actually better than getting a lawyer to do it. Mediation is the way to go- cheaper, and the compliance rate is much better than a court order.
Then, get an uncontested divorce with an attorney- just for the divorce- not for property or child custody issues. Sounds like you might be able to get a pro bono attorney for this. If not, it should be a relatively cheap flat rate.
Most states require you to live apart for a certain period of time before you get divorced. Have you done that? How long?
Do not fight over the kids. Work it out using a mediator who is trained to help people in this type of situation. People who are divorcing are not in the right frame of mind to be able to work together without the assistance of a trained mediator. Don't just figure it out with him- ask him to meet with a neutral mediator.
No attorney is going to take a child custody case without a big retainer. It's better for the kids for you guys to work it out anyway. Unless he really abuses the kids, in which case you need to call Child Protective Services. They will keep the kids safe.
Should I Be Worried About Sexual Assault Charges?
My Best Friend Was Over At My House And We Were Watching A Movie. We Are Both 17 And She Has A Boyfriend. During The Movie I Quickly Leaned Over And Kissed Her And Then She Got Upset And Left. Now The Boyfriend Is Texting Me Threatening Me With Sexual Assault Charges. Should I Be Worried?
That's total crap...you didn't sexually assault anyone. And one kiss does not constitute "sexual assault" unless you stuck your tongue so far down her throat that it made contact with her stomach! But at the same time, you were completely out of line to kiss your now former best-friend when you knew she had a boyfriend! That was wrong of you and now you have lost her as a best-friend!
Keep those text messages and show them to your parents. They may need to go with you to the police station to keep your now ex-best-friend's boyfriend from beating the crap out of you (ie. they need to get a restraining order to keep him from you). You did a stupid thing but it was not criminal. Show the messages to your parents and ask for their help. Good luck and God bless.
