Finding A Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will see that there are numerous lawyers in your town that advertise they are experts in your form of case. This can 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 quest on the right one in very little time. Step one is to create a list of the lawyers that are listed in your town specializing in your situation. While you are making this list you must only include those that you have a good vibe about based on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down through taking a little while evaluating their site. There you should be able to find how many years they have been practicing and several general specifics of their success rates. At this stage your list needs to have shrunken further to those that you simply felt had professional websites and an appropriate quantity of experience. You need to then take time to search for independent reviews of every attorney. Be sure you read the reviews rather than relying on their overall rating. The info from the reviews will provide you with a concept of how they connect with their clients and the length of time they invest into each case that they are focusing on. Finally, you will want to talk with at the very least the final three lawyers who have the credentials you are looking for. This will give you time to actually evaluate how interested they may be in representing both you and your case. It is crucial for you to follow most of these steps to ensure that you hire a company which includes the right level of experience to help you get the very best outcome.

What Constitutes A Felony?
My Dog Had Been Wandering In My Neighbor'S Yard And I Didn'T Know About It. He Yelled At My Dog And Scared It Too Much. **Key I Didnt Know About It! Is This A Felony?
No, that was NOT a felony. There are three basic classifications of crimes: Infractions (i.e. traffic violations), misdemeanors, and the MOST serious - felony.
In general, a felony is an offense for which a sentence to a term of imprisonment in excess of one year is authorized. Felonies are serious crimes, such as murder, rape, or burglary, punishable by a harsher sentence than that given for a misdemeanor.
The sentence for a felonious crime under state law will be served in a state prison, since a year or less can be served in county jail. However, a sentence upon conviction for a felony may sometimes be less than one year at the discretion of the judge and within limits set by statute.
Felonies may be classified by level of seriousness. More serious felonies carry harsher penalties. The classification of felonies varies by jurisdiction and the nature of the crime. Typically, when felonies are classified into categories, a Class A felony is more severely punished than lower level Class B and even lower level Class C felonies. The statute of limitations varies by jurisdiction and type of felony.
How Is International Law Enforced?
Please Be Thourogh
International law is enforced primarily and officially thorough cooperation. It concerns the structure and conduct of states and intergovernmental organizations. To a lesser degree, international law also may affect multinational corporations and individuals, an impact increasingly evolving beyond domestic legal interpretation and enforcement. Public international law has increased in use and importance vastly over the twentieth century, due all to the increase in global trade, armed conflict, environmental deterioration on a worldwide scale, human rights violations, rapid and vast increases in international transportation and a boom in global communications. Public international law is sometimes called the "law of nations". It should not be confused with "private international law", which is concerned with the resolution of conflict of laws. In its most general sense, international law "consists of rules and principles of general application dealing with the conduct of states and of intergovernmental organizations and with their relations inter se, as well as with some of their relations with persons, whether natural or juridical.
The United States government places a high priority on international law enforcement, and plays a leading role in the International Police Organization (Interpol). Each year the United States enacts new laws, and amends old laws in an effort to expand its international law enforcement powers, particularly in the areas of drug trafficking, high tech smuggling, and terrorist activity. This expanding US interest in international law enforcement has resulted in a great number of US agencies, resources, and projects being carried out in foreign countries. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has been at the forefront of this activity, with its agents and representatives performing a plethora of activities in foreign nations.
The DEA maintains the largest overseas law enforcement presence of any US civilian agency. Their agents represent the United States interest in international drug control both within the United States embassies and in diplomatic interactions with host state officials. They maintain communication with local law enforcement officials, provide training for local police, undertake joint drug enforcement operations with local police, conduct unilateral actions such as surveillance and the recruitment of informants, provide intelligence to local officials, and lobby for changes in their host countries laws.

Are There Any Law Firms/Attorneys (As Claimed) That Scams People In Our Country?
Said To Be Pizarro Law Firm Has Been Harassing My Family For An Incident That Happened In Another Country. They Said To Be A Legal Representative Of A Bank Abroad However Since Aug 3 After Sending A Messenger To Check If I Still Live In The Same Address, The Harassment Began Until Today Thru Phone Calls (1 Month Now)(Of 2 Different Attorneys) And The Messenger Has Been Sent 3 Times Just To Ask Of My Whereabouts (Not Currently In Ph). The Said Two Attorneys Were Very Rude On Phone And Used Threats Such As Being Listed To Nbi And Immigration Within 2 Days If Nobody Gives What They Want, My Mother Has Been 2X Threaten To Be Brought To Barangay For Questioning And That Our House Would Be Taken Soon...Blah Blah!! (I Have No House In My Name), None Of This Has Happen So Far. The Lady That Spoke To My Mother Thru Phone Did Not Even Introduce Herself. No Proper Id'S Or Business Cards Has Given And Most Of All, No Documents Or Any Summon Papers That Has Been Presented Or Proof That They Indeed Represent A Bank Or The One Who Has File A Complaint Against Me. I Have Asked My Brother To Deal With Them Having Knowledge With Legal Matters And After One Call On The Phone, The Lady Said They Refuse To Talk To Him Anymore Because He Speaks English And Added That He Is Gay.. What Kind Of Law Firm Are This Then? (Can'T Even Deal With English Speaking? How Much More With The Legal Documents That Are Written In English?)
By The Way, On The 2Nd Visit Of The Messenger, No One Was Home So He Talked To Our Neighbor And Even Have The Nerve To Tell Them That I Have A Debt And They Are Handling It... Wow! ..That Neighbor Thinks They Are Scammers. The First Call That Happened With The Male Atty Was Irked When My Sister Asked Their Law Firm Address, He Immediately Retorted That &Quot;Why, Does She Doubt Their Law Firm?&Quot;. My Sister Has The Right To Ask Their Business Address To Be Able To Make Business Transaction With Them, Right?
I Would Have Dealt With Them By Now But The Way They Treat And Process The &Quot;Said&Quot; Case Brought Suspicion From The Beginning. They Are So Unprofessional From Which Is Very Odd For A Law Firm Or Atty Coz I Have Always Respected And Believed That A Qualified Atty And/Or Law Firm Knows How To Implement The Due Process.
Please Help Me Analyze This.... I'D Like To Think They Are Scammers Yet I Want To Be Really Sure. Maybe They Are Just A Low-Kind Of Law Firm (Which Makes Me Wonder Why They Even Graduated In The First Place With This Kind Of Behaviour)
Your Thoughts Are Greatly Appreciated. Thank You
Pls Pardon My Long Note.
It is a jungle out there, and in every jungle there are snakes.
For you to be sure, have them checked by local sherif.
Report this harrasment to the police station.
If you have big debts, then this will be settled by court. Not them..
Check that PIZARRO law firm if -- registered.
If registered, then you can make complaints against them for harrassing you and your family.
As long as there are no legal papers for them to get your properties, they can't get anything.
They are scaring you.. that's typical scammers' strategy, but to be sure.. ask the help from legal authorities..
Legal Advice (Family Law/Child Custody)?
Some Background: I Currently Live In Monongalia County, West Virginia. I Moved Here From Preston County To Be Closer To Opportunities Such As Higher Education. I Got Accepted To College To Become A Medical Assistant, And Basically, I Just Want To Make A Better Life For Myself And My 5 Year Old Daughter. Preston County Is An Opportunitiless Wasteland Full Of Generational Poverty And Drug Addiction. My Daughter'S Biological Father Is Not Mentally Capable Of Caring For Her (Even For A Short Period) On His Own, So His Parents Always Took My Daughter To Their House For Weekends (Sometimes A Full Week At A Time During Summer) So They Could All Spend Time With Her. Eventually, His Parents Started Doing Things Like Taking My Daughter To Doctors Without My Consent Or Knowledge, Cutting Off All Of Her Hair, And Just Not Wanting To Bring Her Back To Me When I Wanted Her Back. They Also Repeatedly Called Child Protective Services On Me. None Of Their Accusations Were Ever Founded. For The Longest Time, However, I Just Dealt With All Of It. I'M Too Nice, And They Walked All Over Me. Then, The Very Last Time She Stayed With Them, She Came Home And Told Me That Their Adopted Son, 7, Tries To Touch Her Where She Pees And Tries To Make Her Touch Him Where He Pees. That, I Absolutely Could Not Let Fly, So I Made Up Every Excuse I Could Think Of Not To Let Them Take Her Because I Didn'T Want To Seem Like The Bad Guy. I Knew They Wouldn'T Believe What She'D Said About Their Adopted Son (He'S The Golden Child In Their Eyes), And Therefore, Would Do Nothing To Keep My Daughter Safe. Then, The Opportunity Arose For My Fiance And I To Move To Where We Live Now. We Are Buying Our Own Home, I Am In College, And My Daughter Is In One Of The Best Schools In The State.
Shortly After Moving Here, I Start Getting Texts And Phone Calls From My Daughter'S Paternal Grandparents Demanding That I Let Them Come Pick Her Up. My Fear Was That Since There Was No Legal Custody Agreement, They Would Just Decide Not To Bring Her Back, And Then I'D Have To Wait Until We Went To Court To See My Daughter Again. I Told Them No, Then, I Went And Filed For Custody. Still, Being The Nice Girl, My Intention Was Just To Get A Custody Plan Ironed Out. I Wasn'T Going To Try To Keep Anyone From My Daughter, I Just Didn'T Want Her Left Alone With The Adopted Son, I Didn'T Want Them Taking Her To The Doctor Or Cutting Her Hair, And I Wanted To Make Sure They Brought Her Back When I Wanted Her Back. Well. . .After I Filed And The Papers Were Served, I Recieved A &Quot;Motion To Transfer Venue To The Court Of Preston County&Quot;, And A &Quot;Motion To Intervene&Quot;. My Ex'S Parents Stated That He Was Mentally Incapable Of Caring For Our Daughter, But That They Want Full Custody Of My Daughter Based On The Grounds That I'M An Unfit Mother. And They Apparently Have Witnesses Willing To Trash Me In Court. They Also Want The Case Moved To Preston County On The Grounds That My Daughter Grew Up There And Has No Connection To The County We Live In Now. They Also Lied And Said That They Had Custody Of My Daughter From The Time Of Her Birth Until I Ran Off To Another County With Her Less Than 60 Days Ago. Then, They Contradicted Themselves In The Same Statment By Saying They Repeatedly Called Cps On Me. Anyway. . .
I Have A Few Questions. 1) Can They Get Away With This? 2)Is There Any Chance That A Judge Would Give Them Custody Of My Daughter? 3) It'S A Custody Case, Not A Criminal Trial. . .So Do They Even Call Character Witnesses? 4) I Have Yet To Retain An Attorney And My Hearing Is September 19Th, So I Desperately Need To Know How To Write A Motion For Continuance Based On The Grounds That I'M Still Seeking Legal Counsel.
Any Help Is Much Appreciated!
1. the uniform child custody act says that all custody matters are to take place where the child lived for the last 6 months, so if you have been in your county less time than that then yes they can get the jurisdiction changed.
2. It is possible that under grandparent rights they could receive secondary custody, by taking the father's rights since he is unable to do so. But unless you were REALLY screwing up it is unlikely they would get primary custody.
3. They can call any witness they want...whether they actually have anything the Judge wants to hear is another matter.
4. Contact the court house on paperwork for a continuance.
In the mean time I would get ahold of all school records (sign in sheets) as well as doctor office visits to show who actually took the child in to these places.
You have to prove that you have been the custodial parent. And also you need to call CPS NOW and tell them what your daughter told you. THEY should have been called immediately!!!! They will interview the child and determine if this happened or IF you planted the thought in her brain, which sad to say, happens often in cases like this.
P.S. If they do get visitation and secondary custody they should be paying you child support too....just an FYI!
What Is The Meaning Of A &Quot;Legal&Quot; Separation?
Legal separation (sometimes "separate maintenance," "divorce a mensa et thoro," or "divorce from bed-and-board") is a possible step towards divorce under the laws of many countries. A couple is legally separated only if the couple has successfully petitioned a court to recognize their separation; simply living apart does not constitute separation for these purposes.
Legal separation does not automatically lead to divorce. The couple may reconcile, in which case they need do nothing in order to remain married. If they do not reconcile, and wish to divorce after the statutory time period, they must file for divorce explicitly.
Some states within the United States require separation before divorce. The required period of separation before filing for divorce varies.
