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.

I Need Lawyer Advice For A Fraud?
I Obtained A Contract From &Quot;The Arena Mma Gym&Quot;. I Was Told That It Would Be A One Month Contract. I Signed The Form With The Understanding It Would Be Filled Out And Filed As A One Month Contract. When I Signed I Recieved A Copy Of The Contract. All The Contract Details Are Blank. I Still Have The Copy. After Being Billed More Than I Was Suppose To After A Couple Of Months I Found This Was Not The Case. The Information Had Been Filled Out For A 2 Year Contract. Upon Further Research And Looking At The Contract That Is Through Abc Financial, I Saw That It Is Not Even The Same Contract In My Profile On Myiclubonline.Com It Has Some Of My Information On It But Its Still Wrong. My Zip Code For My Previous Address Is Incorrect And My Credit Card I Used States That It Exp'S On 07/2017. Which It Actually Expires On 07/2012. On Top Of All This My Signature Is No Where On The Contract They Sent To Abc Financial, Nor My Handwriting Or My Initials. I Understand It Was Part My Fault For Signing The Contract Without All The Details But I Consider This Fraud. Now As Far As Legal Is Concerned, Can I Sue For This Issue. I Have The Original Copy Of The Contract That Has No Details Pertaining To The Cost Or Length Of The Contract. Plus I Have Access To The Online Form Of My Contract That Was Scanned With None Of My Handwriting Or Signatures On It But Some One Elses Where Mine Should Have Been If I Had Filled It Out. Does This Seem Like An Issue That Would Be Worth Taking To Court For Fraud?
To sign a "blank" contract only to be filled out later is just plain stupid.
Why could you not just pay for 1 month vs signing a contract?
Are they deducting the fees from a credit card or your bank? If so, you need to dispute this in writing. But it sounds like this has been going on for several months, so could be hard pressed to state you did not want, but for 1 month only.
If they have taken only ONE extra payment, meaning 2 months, then dispute this and make sure that either your credit card or bank does not take # 3. But if 3 or more, even with the other details of expiration, zip code is meaningless.
You could seek the advice of a lawyer for your legal options. Many will give you 1 free consult, and if this contract is valid, then you will be on the hook for 2 years.
I did google to see if other complaints and found none on their contracts.
Should I Speak With A Contract Lawyer?
I Participated In A Teacher Training Last Year. It Was To Teach A Particular Meditation, So This Was Not An Accredited University. The Only Warning It Gave Was That The Tuition, Which Was More Than $1,000, Was Non-Refundable, And That There Would Be No Guarantee That I Could Become A Teacher.
After I Went Through The Training, They Surprised Us By Splitting People Into Categories, And I Was Chosen To Be A Teacher Candidate, Which Meant That I Would Need To Spend More Money Working With A Mentor Until I Could Become A Teacher. They Changed It Again And Added More That I Would Have To Do After Their Second Teacher Training In Mexico. More Time, More Money, More Obligations, It Kept Changing.
They'Re Doing Another Teacher Training Next Year, And The Next Application/Contract Actually Warns People About What They Would Be Required To Do. My Contract Does Not Have This At All.
Do I Have Any Legal Ground? I Assumed That I Didn'T Because The Application Said The Tuition Was Non-Refundable, But I Did Witness A Lot Of Shady Things, Including Favoritism, Lying, Secrecy, Etc. I Also Never Found Out Why They Put Me In The Candidate Category.
On the basis of what you included in your question, there does not seem to any grounds to sue for a refund. There were classes or some activity which you attended so they appear to have fulfilled there part of the contract. There were no guarantees of becoming a teacher. Although it sounds like a scheme where as long as you keep paying they will keep adding requirements. My advise to quit while you are only out $1000. Since it is not a recognized school, what would certification as a teacher give you? Is there a legal requirement to have a certification to teach meditation? If it is just a piece of paper you want to show your students, look on line you can most likely get a certification for a few dollars. If you really want to practice meditation, there are legitimate groups that offer classes and most likely certification after a while, but first check out them out on line or with your local better business bureau.

If I Want To Go To Law School Which Is The Best Major For A Bachelors Degree?
I Would Like To Deal In Business Litigation And Family Law But Not Sure What To Major In. Most College Websites Say Liberal Arts Or And General Studies Major. Im Trying To Transfer From A Community College To University Of Texas. Any Lawyers Can Answer This Questions?
Well, a minor in business is not going to hurt you, but I'd try to make my undergrad fun--an awesom major for future lawyers is Communication. It only becomes really applicable if your depart (as is rare these days) is less mass communication and more about rhetoric. Sometimes ENGL departs do rhetoric, and in that case an ENGL major is fine (and also loads of fun).
COM is a great subject, but the way it's taught today it is also somthing of a phony major and there are lots of easy grades in a department like that--ultimately, the system is so flawed that a good GPA with lots of advanced courses on the transcript means more than it should.
Obviously, a Politics major is good for lawyers, but there's a lot of air in that subject, and in the wrong teacher's hands it's useless (with COM and ENGL, at least the reading is bound to be good).
At the end of the day, major in what you like best. You're bound to do better and get into law school.
I think the looking at your undergrad in practical terms is stupid, but if that's your approach, pick COM, ENGL or POLS--whichever you think you'll get the best grades in.
If you like all three, pick which department has the best teachers.
As A Pre Law Student, Is It Better To Work For An Law Firm (Llp) Or A Large Corporations Legal Department?
I Am A College Senior Trying To Break Into The Legal Industry. I Want To Go To Law School Soon, And I Don'T Want To Start Off As An Entry Level Attorney With No Experience Giving Employers Another Excuse To Under-Pay Me, So I Figured I Would Utilize My Time In College To Rack Up As Much Experience Points As Possible Either Full Time Or Part Time. Therefore When I Am Ready To Join A Firm I Will Be Well Prepared, And Respected Enough To Be Offered A Decent Salary.
Any Advice Or Experience Sharing Would Be Greatly Appreciated.
The best thing to do is look at people who have your ideal job, then work backwards and see what they did.
It is very unlikely that any experience you gain in college is going to matter to a law firm hiring you after law school. Better that you focus on your grades and maybe one really good volunteering experience that you dedicate four years to - like working at legal aid - so that you can get into a good law school. Once you're in law school, it does matter what school you go to but top 10% is 10% even if you didn't go to Harvard. While you're in law school, get on the law review, do mock trial and make sure that you get an internship in the summer at a law firm (you won't go in-house that's not going to happen). Once you graduate - again, if you're grades are good, the place where you interned should hire you and if not you'll still be able to get a good job.
Most lawyers earn around 80K out of law school (not talking criminal or government lawyers who earn less). You stick with a firm for a few years and your salary will be 150K in no time and then (and only then) will a company look at you for in-house work. You won't get an in-house job out of law school. Sorry. Companies usually hire from the firms that they use for their legal work, once they have worked with a lawyer for a few years, they ask them to come in-house.
Hope that helps. Oh and your loans are with you for the rest of your life, get used to it, unless you go to work for Microsoft or some other place that will pay you ridiculous amounts, you're still looking at (at least!) 10 years of payback.
Child Visitation Appeal?
Would You Appeal A Visitation Case If The Judge Granted That You Cannot Have Standard Visitation, They Are Just Giving Every Other Weekend (No Holidays, Summers)? The Reasoning Behind It Was Because Of A Poor Job History And One Felony Arrest (Burglary) At The Age Of 16. The Father Is Now 23, Steady Job, Married, Has Another Child That He Has Standard Visitation With And A Step Child. Do You See Any Reason Here Not To Grant Standard Visitation?
"Child Visitation Appeal? Would you appeal a visitation case if the judge granted that you cannot have standard visitation, they are just giving every other weekend (no holidays, summers)? The reasoning behind it was because of a poor job history and one felony arrest (burglary) at the age of 16. The father is now 23, steady job, married, has another child that he has standard visitation with and a step child. Do you see any reason here not to grant standard visitation?"
There is no quick answer to your question.
There's no such thing as "standard visitation." The courts decide an appropriate visitation schedule based on a number of factors: including the desires of the child (especially older children), the geographic circumstances particular to the case, the relationship between the children and the parent, the parental fitness of a person to conduct certain visitation, etc. A father seeking more visitation would have to successfully argue that the increased visitation he proposes is in the best interests of the children.
And then, it wouldn't be an "appeal." Generally, the only appealable actions are those that are finally and conclusively adjudicated and ordered as such. Child custody and visitation issues can usually be revisited after either a certain period of time since the last order (say, two years) or upon a showing of a substantial change of circumstances or at any time if there is imminent endangerment to the health and well-being of the children.
The father should ask the custodial parent for the visitation schedule he now desires. If the parties agree, then they should go into court and have the judge order the visitation schedule that has been agreed to.
If the parties don't agree-- as they often don't-- then the father needs to make a motion to modify the judgment of dissolution of marriage (or divorce or whatever it's called in that jurisdiction) to change the visitation. It's not an appeal. It's just a request that the court change the existing order due to the passage of time and a change of circumstances.
If the other party opposes the motion, then testimony and evidence will have to be taken to allow the judge to decide what is in the best interests of the children.
