Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer Regardless of what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are loads of lawyers in your area that advertise which they are experts in your sort of case. This will make the whole process of finding one with significant amounts of experience a bit of a challenge. However, when you follow the tips below it will be easy to limit your research on the right one out of very little time. The initial step is to produce a selection of the lawyers that are listed in your town that specialize in your circumstances. When you are causeing this to be list you must only include those you have an effective vibe about based on their advertisement. After that you can narrow this list down by taking a bit of time evaluating their internet site. There you must be able to find the number of years they have been practicing plus some general information about their success rates. At this stage your list should have shrunken further to individuals that you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate quantity of experience. You need to then take the time to search for independent reviews for each attorney. Make sure to read the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The data inside the reviews gives you a concept of the way they interact with the clientele and how much time they invest into each case they are taking care of. Finally, you will want to meet with no less than the last three lawyers that have the credentials you are looking for. This provides you with time to actually evaluate how interested these are in representing your case. It is imperative that you follow most of these steps to actually find a person which has the proper amount of experience to get you the best possible outcome.

How Much Will A Personal Injury Lawyer Cost Me?
I Was A Passenger In A Single Vehicle Auto Accident That Has Already Been Deemed The Driver'S Fault. I Suffered Massive Injuries That Hospitalized Me For A Month And Forced Me To Undergo 4 Surgeries To Save My Leg. My Case Is Valued Around $1.45 Million And I'Ve Read Online That Personal Injury Attorneys Charge 33-40% Contingency Fees On Their Cases. I Understand Giving An Attorney $10,000 On A $30,000 Suit, But Am I Really Going To Have To Fork Over A Half Million Just For Legal Representation? Or Is There Another Way To Do/Pay For This That I'M Just Unaware Of?
in life you get what you negotiate.
No win-no fee law suits are weighted in favour of the lawyer but then typically they have a lot of work to do and as you say $10k on a $30k damages payment might seem fair enough. However, for a more serious injury where the payout is going to be greater it might be worth you hiring the lawyer to simply fight the case for you with you paying the bills as they arise. Probably you will end up with a large legal bill, but it won't be anywhere close to a third of $1.45m. Or you could negotiate with the other party yourself - there is no law that I know of that says you must seek legal assistance.
If you are laid up and not doing much then look at similar accidents and at least try speaking to the other party's lawyers. But, bear in mind that any payment you take will be full and final. If you have further problems with the leg down the line then tough - that is why you need a lawyer to make it watertight and to accept the best possible deal.

Legal Help, Is My Lawyer Bleading Me Dry, Or Just Not Good Enough.?
My Sister Is Suing Me. She Does Not Understand, That The Housing Market Crashed. We Lost 20,000+. Except I Paid All The Bills And She Repaid, But I Am Out 15,000, And She Is Out 5,000. Another Problem Is I Could Not Survive My Half Of The Mortgage, If We Did Not Refi From 6% Down To 4,125% And Put Another 10,000 Down. She Refused To Sign Off On The New Mortgage, Whic By The Way I Lost A 3.75% Because I Could Not Change Her Mind. If We Did Not Refi I Would Have Blown My Credit Score, And Lost The House. Something Had To Change, Which She Buys Me Out Or I Buy Her Out. At The Time Going By National Average Experts I Thought We Had 6,000 In Equity, My Sister Could Not Believe A House Worth 130,000 In 2007, Could Lose More The 10,000 In A Year. So She Felt There Was 20,000 So We Signe A Contract, We Would Get An Appraisel, And Subtract What We Owe And Split It 50/50. But At The Time Of The Buyout We Owed $8,000 More Then The Appraisel Of The House. Which Means She Owes Me $4,000. But Instead Of Paying Me She Sued Me By Lying. In Her Law Suit Against Me, And Suing For 30,000. She Stated She Never Knew Of The 1St Refi We Did, And Did Not Recieve Any Money From That Refi. She Stated She Paid Her Share And My Share, Of The Monthly Bills, And Repairs. Well, I Have The Documentation I Paid All The Bills From My Checking A/C, And Credit Card. 95%. I Have The Mortgage Showing Her She Recieved $25,000, + From The Refi. And 16 Pages Of Her Initials And Or Signature To Approve The 1St Refi, And The Check For 15,000. I Heard She Committed Perjury, And I Could File Criminal Charges. I Did Not Want To Do This. But I Was Out 4,000 + Before She Sued Me, And Now So Far With Legal Fee I Have Lost Another 6,000. And It Is Not Over. I Told My Lawyer To Play Hard Ball. I Was Willing To Let The Uneven Loss Of 15,000 For Me And 5,000 For Her. But That Was Before I Had To Get A Lawyer, And If It Ended Right Then And There. But It Has Lasted Now For Over 2Yrs. And 6,000 More. I Told My Lawyer To File Criminal Charges, If My Sister Did Not At Least Pay Me For The Lawyers Fees She Costed Me By Suing Me When She Owes Me. I Sent 6 Or More Emails Say Get My Legal Fees Back Or File Charges On My Sister. 1 Issue Is He Takes A Few Days To Email Me Back, And All He Says , Is He Will Be Checking With Her Lawyer. No Matter How You Look At It My Sister Owes Me, But She Is Costing Me More Money For Nothing. And I Was Laid Off, 3Yrs Ago, And Used Up 100,000 In My Savings, And Make Half Of What I Uses To Make. Why Is My Lawyer Not Getting Anywhere, And Ending My Case. It Seems Cut And Dry. She Owes Me, And She Lied In Court Papers. What Can I Do?
Every time your lawyer answers your email, you are running up the bill. Until sister's lawyer actually files a lawsuit and you have a court date, you only need to get all your information together. You can tell you story to the judge in a courtroom.
Chill out and stop calling the lawyer for a while. Since she is suing you, the ball is in her court and when she takes the next step, then you get a lawyer.
Of course you should talk to a lawyer first, they have many legal advice hotlines that you can call too - if all you want is an opinion and not someone to represent you.
This is exactly why I don't give my personal information to store computers.. it's there for any employee to see!
Make sure you have the e-mail where he confesses saved!
Sorry that I don't have very much information, but call the hotlines they'll really help you out.
If I'M A Lawyer, Can I Specialize In Juvenile Justice?
Can I Be A Lawyer For Only Juvenile Prosecutors And Defendants?
If you can afford it...................
If you can find a way to pay your living expenses, then you can specialize..................
If you can find a way to pay your enormous law school debts, then you can specialize..........
If not, then you have to take whatever work comes your way.
Choosing a career is one of life's most important and difficult decisions.
We simply already have way too many Legal Professionals. AND the legal profession is dramatically changing; it is in absolute CRISIS! Job searching in this vocational field has changed >>DRAMATICALLY<< in the last five years. And, every year, more and more people graduate from law school, but there are fewer and fewer jobs. Even the largest and most reputable law firms are experiencing unprecedented cutbacks. I don't expect the situation to improve in the coming years.....
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are STILL in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available JOBS.<<< Even in a Recovery, there are some jobs that just won't return - the field of Law won't make a comeback. Too many things have changed in the vocational field of Law.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast! This no longer is a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many, many reasons. We now have computers. So, many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet and legal books. Also, there are a lot of companies out there making very efficient legal software for the field of Law. Today's graduating lawyers tend to be very computer savvy, so they just do the work themselves to save themselves the cost of overhead. Also, the "Public" buys this legal software and law books in order to get legal work done without the cost of an Attorney. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we just have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Sites like legalzoom.com have taken away work that many small-time attorneys/lawyers would do/used to do.
The field of Law has a mystique that actually exceeds reality. The field of Law is an overrated career - mostly by television.<< There are many myths regarding the field of Law: *myth: working as a Lawyer is mentally challenging (Actually, most work as an attorney involves mountains of routine paperwork: research, cite checking, drafting documents, and document review. Attorneys need to write down and track EVERY activity they do, all day long [in 6 to 15 minutes increments, depending on the billing system] - a painstaking but necessary task), *myth: being an attorney is thrilling, high-powered, and glamorous (remember: television is FICTION - the fictional lawyers on TV are ACTORS - the majority of work that an attorney does, does not happen in a courtroom), *myth: law students think that because they are good at arguing they will become great attorneys (actually being a great attorney is more in one's ability to mediate between differing sides and bringing them to agreement/compromise), *myth: as a lawyer I can correct injustices (actually legal decisions are more about reaching compromises than about right vs. wrong), *myth: guaranteed financial success (actually when salaries are compared, you also need to account for cost-of living expenses [most large law firms are in large cities - the bigger the city, the more cost-of-living expenses will be], payment of debts accrued while attending law school, and time needed to build a client base. Many large law firms require lawyers to work 60-80 hours per week.).
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+. Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt, if becoming an attorney is your "true", ultimate goal!!<<<<
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. have been laid off left and right in this vocational field.
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (>>I found this out the hard way.) Also, the law school's program needs to be accredited by the American Bar Association - if it isn't, you are just wasting your time/money.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking (at an alarming rate), many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce in TODAY's job market!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just SATURATED with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will LIE to you. The root of the problem is we already have too many law schools. We are STILL in a Recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............Remember>>> law schools are BUSINESSES - their TOP concern is making money for themselves.
>>>>>THE MOST IMPORTANT THING (and I can't stress this enough>>>): You ESPECIALLY have to beware of the bogus, inflated law school salary/job stats given out by law schools AND by the U.S. Bureau of Labor!!**<<<<<
If you don't believe me, then just do a SEARCH here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about future job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.S. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the fields of: >>>Healthcare, Information Technology, Law ENFORCEMENT, environmentalism, emergency planning, accounting, education, entertainment, utilities, home-car-commercial-industrial repairs, vice industries, clergy, and/or debt collection. I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that these areas are where the jobs are, and future job opportunities/availability....and scholarships.
