Finding An Experienced Lawyer Whatever your legal needs are you will notice that there are loads of lawyers in your neighborhood that advertise they focus on your form of case. This could make the whole process of finding one with quite a lot of experience somewhat of a challenge. However, if you follow the following it will be possible to define your quest off to the right one in very little time. The first step is to produce a listing of the lawyers which are listed in your neighborhood that specialize in your needs. While you are causeing this to be list you must only include those that you have an effective vibe about depending on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down by taking a bit of time evaluating their webpage. There you should be able to find just how many years they have been practicing plus some general specifics of their success rates. At this time your list should have shrunken further to the people which you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate volume of experience. You need to then take time to search for independent reviews of every attorney. Make sure you see the reviews rather than just depending on their overall rating. The info inside the reviews gives you a concept of the way they communicate with their customers and the time they invest into each case they are working on. Finally, you will want to meet up with no less than the past three lawyers which may have the credentials you are searching for. This will give you some time to truly evaluate how interested they can be in representing both you and your case. It really is vital that you follow every one of these steps to actually find someone which includes the proper degree of experience to get you the ideal outcome.

Who'S The Best Medical Malpractice Lawyer In Chicago?
Medical Malpractice, Any Recommendations For The Best Lawyer? My Neighbors Mother Went In For A Standard Hip Replacement, Yada Yada Sh'S Been Having Issues For Over A Year Now And She May Not Walk Again. She Went In With Perfect Health (Aside From The Hip)
Can't answer about the best attorney, but just because she had a bad result doesn't mean there was malpractice. Lots of possible reasons for failure, including not following doctor's advise or going to physical therapy as directed.
How Can You Tell If A Website Is A Scam?
Im Looking To Buy Some Snapbacks From This Website ,. Theyre Really Cheap , But Im Not Sure If Its A Scam ? This Is The Website..
Another WHOIS domain owner lookup service is:
The creation date may be the most important factor, a multi-year registration, indicated by an expiration date well in the future often indicates a more legit site, although it's not a sure thing either way.
Some owners can employ a registration proxy to conceal their information to hide their bedroom business or scammer's lair address.
Another sign of deception is incomplete Chinese addresses or suspicious looking U.S. address, perhaps with a European phone number.
Chinese sites in general are too risky for me to deal with, you can count on the goods being lower quality knock-offs, and there are too many borders between their courts and my lawyer.
You can actually lookup the address given in the domain whois, as well as he site contact page with Google Map search and zoom in to the satellite picture and navigate the street view image, I have spotted more than one UPS Store address where the company keeps a P.O. Box.
Any site only giving an email form or a disposable hotmail, gmail address on their Contact Us page should be viewed with suspicion. If you ever had legal issues with them, the owners can make themselves unreachable.
Look for trust seals at the bottom, macafee and BBB logos should take you to the certification page when clicked.
check out the various main page links for FAQ, about us, Terms and Conditions, some have blank spaces or the name of another site left in the borrowed site template, any sloppy site design is another indication of a slapped together fly by night site, when the owner location is obscured look for poor non native grammar.
Finally, when checking out any reputable site will use encrypted https addresses on the pages where your personal info and credit card number are entered, while more for protecting you from 3rd party spies, like a neighbor kid tapped into your wifi, the absense of https indicates an irresponsible site, some stores use separate payment processors who have their own secure checkout, this is not a gurantee of satisfaction.
How Should I Approach This ..I Know I Need A Lawyer?
My Car Was Parked And A Drunk Lady Crashed Into It, And Totaled It. I Am Seeking Advice On How I Should Approach This?
1) Claim Was Made With My Car Insurance Company, And They Said Its A Non Fault Collision ( Thank Goodness I Had Collision Insurance)
2) Police Report Was Made..She Was Arrested On The Spot For Being Drunk, And Totaling My Car Out.
3) My Car Was Declared Totaled.
4) My Car Has Been Towed Off I Don'T Even Know Where To.
5) I Still Owe 16K On My Car But Blue Book Value On My Car Is No Where Near The 16K I Owe. ( 2007 Toyota Yaris 4Door Sedan In Great Condition If That Helps..Only Had 11K Miles On It..I Bought It New In '07) I Am Aware The Car Retails For Less Than 16K But You Know That Negative Equity Can Kill Ya When Trading In Another Car You Still Owe On.
My Real Question Lies Here... Most Likely I Will Get Blue Book Value For The Car And Still Owe A Crap Load Of Money For My Totaled Car That I Cant Drive...What Kind Of Lawyer Should I Get? What Should I Expect?
A lawyer is not going to do you any good. He can't change the value of your car. It's worth what it's worth. If the car was parked and unoccupied - there is no bodily injury claim - so no lawyer is going to take the case anyway. There is no money in it for them.
Besides -- a lawyer is going to be paid 1/3 of any settlement you get. So - even if you found one to take your case - he's going to get 1/3 of the value of your car - that just means less money to pay the note down with.
Now - about the total loss car -- the insurance company owes you the Actual Cash Value of the car. That's what you could have reasonably sold the car for just prior to the accident (given its year, make, model, options, mileage, condition).
The insurance company does not owe you the amount of your note.
Insurance companies have a few ways of valuing vehicles. If they use a book its the NADA (www.nadaguides.com) -- NOT kelley blue book. So don't waste your time checking kelley.
Insurance companies can also use market survey programs (such as CCC or Total Logic). These are usually going to give the most accurate value of the car as they are based on actual car sales in your specific area.
Did you purchase Gap coverage when you bought your car? Hopefully you did. If so, the Gap coverage should be able to step in and help with the short fall.
If you did not -- and you have been a good customer - your finance company may be willing to take the short fall from this loan and roll it into the note for the next car. The down side is if something happens to the replacement car - you are in the exact same boat you are in now-- owing more than the car is worth.
Cancelling Contract With Lawyer?
My Husband This Past Weekend Told Me He Wants A Divorce. Well In The State Of Missouri You Can Only File For Seperation While You Are Pregnant( Which I Am With Our Second Child) Well A Couple Lawyers Over The Phone Told Me I Should File First So I Get To Keep The Kids At First At Least. Well After Hearing That, I Hired A Lawyer, Put Down Her 2,000 Dollor Retainer. She Hasnt Filed For The Seperation Yet. I Have Decided Not To File First Since I Have Found Out That The 'Filing First, Gets You The Kids' Is Not True At All...So I Want To Stop The Process. The Only Paper Work I Signed For Her Was Something Stating I Gave Her 2,000 For A Retainer. So Can I Go In Today, Ask How Many Hours She Has Worked On The Case And Get The Rest Of The Money Back?
You absolutely can. The answer is a big YES. If the lawyer is a morally straight person, she will do just as you ask. At the most, she may ask you for a reason for her dismissal but she is not entitled to know why if you do not wish to discuss it.
Question For Lawyers Who Practice Civil Law?
What Do You Enjoy Most About Your Profession, And What Do You Like Least About Your Profession?
Least? Lack of job security - there are no available jobs in this field.
Be aware of what you are proposing on getting yourself into. Please do more research first. Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession. Consider career paths that have available jobs.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
There are no jobs in this vocational field. My family, coworkers, friends, acqaintances, etc. are being 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.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
Be prepared to take on a LOT of debt.<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
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, 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!!
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 have too many law schools. We are 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.
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 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 or Information Technology! 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 availability! and scholarships!

Is My Personal Injury Award Public Record?
How Can I Find Out If My Personal Injury Settlement Is Public Record, Where Anyone Can Find Out About It, Or If It Is Confidential And Permanently Sealed? I Certainly Hope It Is Sealed Because These Days It Seems Like Everybody Knows Everything About Every Person, And These Things Should Not Be Public Knowledge.
There are EXACTLY 3 possibilities.
1. You settled out of court and the settlement contains a confidentiality agreement.
2. The judge ordered the record sealed. You would know if they did.
3. The award is public record.
