The first task is to make a list of the lawyers that happen to be listed in your area focusing on your position. When you are causeing this to be list you should only include those you have a great vibe about based on their advertisement. You can then narrow this list down by using a little while evaluating their website. There you should be able to find the number of years they have been practicing and some general specifics of their success rates.

This provides you with time to really evaluate how interested they are in representing both you and your case.

The person who requests guardianship files a "motion for temporary custody" with the local family court. Some courts have forms you can fill out or download. Otherwise, one has to draft the motion.
An attorney is not required for family court. However, if the adult who is making this arrangement for you is unable to figure this out, s/he (personally) needs one.

I Got Caught Drink Driving Friday Night..?
I Got Caught Drink Driving Friday Night And The Cops Said I Can Drive For 4 More Weeks But After That I Lose My License For 6 Months..
I Know It Was Stupid Of Me And I Know I Have Learnt My Lesson But I Really Do Need To Get Too And From Work But Only To And From Work.. I Normally Leave At About 6.30 In The Morning And Get Home At Around 4 - 6 In The Afternoon.
Im Just Wondering How Risky That Is If I Were To Drive To Work In The 6 Months?
Do The Police Check Up On You? I Got Caught In Melbourne And I Live An Hour Away In A Town Called Ballarat If That Makes A Difference.
It Will Be A Realll Inconvenience If I Cant Get To Work Because I Have No Other Way.. Not Even Busses As Much As I Hate Public Transport Lol
Please Write Back Leaving In Account That I Only Blew .02 And Did Not Expect To Blow Anything As The Last Drink I Had Was About 6 Hours Before
Here is a little tip for next time, learned it off one of the best lawyer for DUI's.
When you get pulled over and you know that you have been drinking, just simply say...
"I am not on DUI probation. I am twenty-one years old or older, and I will exercise my 5th amendment right to remain silent. I will not take any field sobriety test, including the hand held preliminary breath machine, test on the side of the road or answer any questions except information that is on my driver's license. I will only take a chemical test"
Never take the hand-held breath machine, it is known to read approximately 60% higher. You have the rights to say no to any test!
You have to know that a DUI is known as a criminal offense. It will look ugly on your record and ruins jobs opportunity. Get a good lawyer that can clear you up, the last thing you want is a DUI on your record.
Here is a little fun fact: Police pulls over people more between the time of 10pm and 2am to catch people drinking and driving or any reason cause towards it. It is called the madmother project, they are being paid under the table on top of their salary's.
People make mistakes, best of wishes to you
Can You Give Me Some Practical Information On Lawyers Please?
Like What They Do, And The Qualifications Needed And How Long It Takes To Get This Qualification And The General Job Salary And Dangers And Restrictions Involved In The Job.
Thank You. If You Give Me All This You'Ll Be Chosen As Best Answer And That'S Like 12 Points You Know, Because You Also Get 2 Points Just For Answering This Question.
What it takes to become a lawyer: you have to go to college and get a 4 yr. degree (in anything) and then go to law school. Law school is full time three years or people can do it by going to night school but of course if takes longer. When you are done w/ that, and, assuming you went to an ABA accredited law school (don't go to one that is not!!) you can sit for any state's bar examination. You take a very intensive course to prep for it and the exam is usually 2-3 days long. One part is on the old common law/ multi-state and the other part is on your state's law from the state you are sitting for the exam in. Once you pass, you take a short ethics exam (think a day or two of studying and an exam that is an hour or two) and then you get admitted to practice in your State.
What lawyers do: that depends on what kind of law you do and what kind of connections you have to get a job. I am a trial lawyer and appellate lawyer. I had no family in Florida when I started and knew no lawyers so I really busted my butt to "get ahead". I represent folks who get sued. I am out 20+ years now. I am not starving but I am not rich by any means. Most people out as long as me who do this kind of work for defense firms are earning $80 - $150K - in Florida. You are not going to starve on it but that doesn't get you a Manhattan apt either. In states where the cost of living is high, like NY, the salaries are about double b/c it costs twice as much to live there.
Dangers and Restrictions: You can only practice in the state you take the bar exam in. Taking the bar exams is not a pleasant experience so figure out where you want to live BEFORE you sit for the Bar exam so you hopefully have to only sit for one state's bar.
What I do: I review suit files, look for the pros and cons, collect information from the other party's lawyer and on my own (locate and talk to witnesses, go to scene inspections, collect medical records, talk to experts, take depositions) and analyze what makes the case good for the other side and the holes they have in their case. Based on that the insurance company will decide what they would be willing to pay to settle the case. If the other side will take about that amount, we settle. If not, we try the case. If we lose and the judge appears to have made a legal mistake which should be reversed and which would have a big impact on the case, I do the appeal.
Hope that helps.
Need To Find A Local Lawyer?
I'M In St. Louis, And Need A Lawyer For A Copyright Case. I'Ve Never Been Through The Lawsuit Process Before, And I'Ve Been Looking Online For A Lawyer, But There'S So Much To Choose From And I'M Getting Lost With It. Anyone Know A Good Lawyer In St. Louis, Or Know A Better System To Find One? Thanks
Short of receiving a recommendation from a trusted friend (not some stranger on Yahoo Answers who you can't trust), I would suggest starting by looking at www.avvo.com and www.linkedin.com. Many attorneys have profiles up for one of those two sites. From there, you can call up multiple attorneys. Even if an attorney cannot help you, he/she may be able to recommend someone who can.
I recommend finding who you are comfortable with and has experience in the set of facts your present. I don't know your set of facts, but copyright cases can be complicated and expensive. In some cases (not always), you do get what you pay for.
How Should My Lawyer Be Handling My Personal Injury Case?
I Was In A Car Accident 10 Months Ago And After Two Days Of Talking To His Insurance Company I Immediately Called A Lawyer. My Car Was Totalled, It Was 100% His Fault (I Have Police Reports To Prove) And I Have Missed Countless Days Of Work And Am Still In Pain. I Went To Three Different Types Of Doctors, Had X-Rays, Mri'S And All Sorts Of Tests Done But I Still Have No Use In Two Of My Fingers, Numbness And Shooting Pains. My Last Chiropractor Released Me Basically Saying There Was Not Much More I Could Do And Had To Live With It. I Have Been Told To See A Neurologist But None Will Take Me Without Insurance, Or Just Based On My Lawyer Information.
I Told The Lawyer To Just Go Ahead And Start Proceedings. She Said They Will Come Up With A Demand. I Dont Know How This Is All Supposed To Work But I Want To Make Sure They Are Doing Things Right. I Don'T Want To Get Screwed Just Because I Dont Speak The Legal Jargon. If Anyone Can To Tell Me What To Expect At This Point, Or What I Can Be Doing Or The Lawyer Should Be Doing That Would Be Very Helpful.
The lawyer will send a demand to the other party. They may come back with a counteroffer...this can go on for a little while, but not too long.
Depending on what state you live in, you may be coming close to the statute of limitations. Most states have a 1 year statute on personal injury. This means the claim must be filed within one year of the accident. If your state has a 1 year limit, make sure your lawyer files before that time period. If he doesn't, it is malpractice.
