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.

Legal Drinking Question?
I Know This May Sound A Little Weird, But I'M Not Much Of A Drinker At All. Im Turning 21 In June, And Im Curious As To Party/Laws/Etc. Cause I Never Really Drink Underage, So I Dont Know The Rules.
If I Party At A Friends House, And There Are Underage People There (Whether I Know Their Age Or Not, I Know Ppl Lie) Would I Get In Trouble? If It Wasnt My House, And I Didnt Supply The Alcohol. I Wanna Go To Parties, But I Know Sometimes Ppl Lie About Their Age To Those Of Us Who Are 21, But I Dont Wanna Get In Trouble Because Of Them.
If It Was My House, I Know That I Obviously Would Get In Trouble.
But What If It Wasnt My House?
Cause I Wanna Party With Some Of My Friends, But Some Of Them Arent 21 Yet. And Come On.... People Drink Underage. Dont Judge This Question On That Please. But You Know What I Mean.....
P.S. I Live In New Hampshire, If That Makes A Difference.
I am not a legal expert, and I only offer what I say below from personal experience, but here goes:
Minimum age drinking laws vary from state to state, so if you leave New Hampshire, things may be different where you end up. As an example, when I was in college in my state of residence, they changed the legal drinking age twice. When I was 18, so was the minimum drinking age. After I turned 19, they raised the minimum to 19. Then, after I turned 21, the state raised the minimum to 21, so basically, I never had to worry about being under-age. While I was 19, I met this cute woman from New Mexico who said that she really liked my state's drinking laws because she considered New Mexico's laws unfair and sexist. Apparently in her state, the legal drinking age for men was 18, but the legal drinking age for women was 21.
Also, counties within a state can modify the state law, but only to make it more severe, not to make it less so, as in the case of "dry counties" where you cannot even purchase alcohol. Not only that, but enforcement can vary somewhat as well. You need to check the complicity implications of the drinking laws in New Hampshire. For instance, can you actually prove that you did not give alcohol to a minor who was in attendance at the party? Did you know that the individual was a minor and try to prevent them from being served alcohol? You need to check into New Hampshire's "perceived guilt" practices. They may only hold the owners of the home (whether they were present or not) responsible, or they may hold the "giver of the party" only responsible, or possibly any adult in attendance, considering that they may have an implied responsibility to uphold the law. You never know until you check.
Consider this example: Kate's parents are out of town for the weekend. Before they left, they set down the rule that there were to be no parties given during their absence. Kate throws a party anyway. She is 22, and has no problem stocking alcohol for the party. 20 people eventually are in attendance at the party, not all of them 21 or over (legal drinking age in this example is 21). You are legal drinking age and are one of the party guests. She knows everyone at the party, and everyone knows each other. One of the "unders" is Zack, who is only 19. As the party goes on, people including you) notice that Zack has had a little too much, and finally, Kate tells Zack that he has probably had enough. Zack decides to leave, and 5 other partygoers decide to accompany him in search of another party. They pile into Zack's car, but on the way to the other party, Zack's car swerves to miss a big rig, goes off the road and hits a tree. The car explodes in a violent ball of flame, killing all 6 occupants instantly. Now, the question is: Who is responsible for these 6 deaths? Is it:
A) Kate's parents who should have made sure that the party did not happen?
B) Kate, because she threw the party?
C) If it wasn't a "selve serve" situation, is it the person who served Zack his last drink?
D) The "legal drinkers", who should have made sure that party guests who were not old enough were not gettin any alcohol?
E) Anyone there (including you) who noticed that he should not have been allowed to drive in his condition but did not stop him?
Answer that question for yourself and then check what New Hampshire's and your county's laws say about it. Whether or not your answer agrees with New Hampshire's, you need to see it New Hampshire's way, or be willing to accept the consequenses.
I hope I have been of some help to you.
Where Can I Get Free Legal Advice?
I Am A 45Yo Man (Unemployed) -- No Children. I Need Free Legal Advice. Should I Schedule Free Consultations? How Can I Find A Legal Aid Society?
Most legal advice is free. I highly recommend Jacoby + Myers. My girl BF was having difficulty getting a divorce. They got it done at a reasonable price. How it works is u present ur problem to them. If its for unemployment benefits due to u. They would gather the information you would need to present ur case. They file the proper documentation + file ur claim. If you win they get a certain percentage + of course whatever u have coming to u. If u lose u r only responsible for court fees. Hope this helped. Good Luck.
Do I Need A Lawyer!!!!!!!!!!?
I Have A Case And Its Civil Regarding The Paternity Of My Child...My Ex Wants To Be Take Off Her Birth Certificate Due To A Online Bought Dna Test That Came Out He Is Not Her Father...So Now We Have A Civil Case...I Am A Single Mom With No Money What So Ever...Can I Defend Myself In This Case With Him...Even Though He Has A Lawyer?
If he isnt the father, you dont need a lawyer. He does.
If he IS the father, you dont need a lawyer either. Legal aid will probably help you. The Court is VERY hesitant to overturn parenthood because of the stigma on the child. The Court will probably order its own paternity test if the test taken turns out to be unreliable. Unless he clearly is not the father, he will not be relieved of responsibility.
But if he isnt the father, do the right thing. That's all I can say.

Full Custody Versus Joint Custody?
My Now Ex-Husband Told Me I Couldn'T Have Full Custody Because We Had A Parenting Plan. It Had To Be Listed On The Legal Papers As Joint Custody Subject To The Parenting Plan. Is This True? I Think He May Have Pulled One Over On Me.
Joint custody is the standard now. I was involved in the passage of those laws in the late 80s and early 90s. Currently I promote Bird Nesting.
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
I Installed Some Stonework For A Customer On Bank Budget And The Contractor/Owner Overspent The Money And To Make A Long Story Short, I Was Never Paid...
So After Endless Negotiations I Want To Remove All My Material...I Want The Police To Be Present When I Am Removing The Installed Items...
Do I Need To Go To Court Or Do I Need To Call The Police Department In Order To Do This?
Thank You For Your Help
Depends on what state you're in, but regardless, you obviously don't have a license or you would know the procedures for doing work, i.e. filing a mechanics' lien before you even buy your materials.
Now that you have completed the work, if there is any cement or concrete or any manner in which it is attached to the structure OR permanently affixed to the ground, you cannot touch it. In fact, even going onto the property now amounts to a trespass.
It's a civil matter now, the police will tell you so unless they are complete idiots.
you are going to have to sue whoever it is who hired you. since you are not a licensed contractor, you cannot file a lien.
see if you can work out some kind of payment plan and for heaven's sake, in the future make sure that your terms are clearly CIFIA - cash in fist in advance.
