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.

Prescription Meds/Medical Malpractice?
Legal Question -
Say There Is A Teenager Who Was Put On Medications For Depression, Anger Issues, And Bipolar Disorder At A Young Age (10Ish) And Was Forced By Their Parents And Psychitrists To Take Theses Medications Without Choice. The Child Took Them Without Asking Questions For Almost A Decade. In This Decade, The Child'S Behavior And Health (Both Pysical And Mental) Steadily Deteriorated, His Anger And Depression Problems Get Worse And Worse, And The Only Thing That Is Done Is He Is Put On More And Stronger Meds. He Gains A Ton Of Weight, Sleeps For 18 Hours Per Day, And Can'T Control His Anger And Feels Horrible For Years. He Loses All His Friends And Family'S Support, He Becomes Miserable And Terribly Depressed, And Spends Time In Several Mental Health Facilities, Even A Weekend In Juvenile Hall For Swearing At His Dad. It Is Discovered When He Is 17 That He Never Had Bipolar Or Any Mental Issues, And Is Taken Off These Meds, And What Do You Know - He'S Perfectly Fine And Sane.
A few things wrong with this:
1. No parent worth their weight in salt would allow their 10 year old child to be medicated to that point. If they did, they should have the child removed from their care!
2. Most medications for depression don't cause that sluggish reaction. There are no medications to treat bipolar disorder - just the symptoms. Only in VERY EXTREME cases of bipolar disorder do they prescribe psychotropic medications, which do cause sluggishness and such.
3. Have you ever met or known someone with bipolar disorder? A person with an inkling of medical knowledge will notice the difference. A doctor would be able to see that a person needing medications for depression isn't necessarily bipolar, and if they are bipolar, they wouldn't have anything other than antidepressants to prescribe.
4. To be through a system to the extent you describe, someone would pick up on what happened, and do something. If they don't then there are a ton of very inept individuals around that individual.
I am hoping this is totally a hypothetical question, and not based on a true-life experience. There would be a HUGE medical malpractice suit. If that were my child, I would have gotten a second opinion before someone putting my 10 year old on antidepressants. There are so many things that can be masked as depression (individuals with ADD/ADHD can become depressed due to their condition, for example) that it is hard - especially at that age - to define it as only depression. Shame on the parent(s) that allowed that to happen!!!
addition: I just read your addition, and I AM SORRY!!! HOW HORRIBLE!!!!
You need to start by visiting your local department of health and human services. Explain the situation to them, and that you feel this was inappropriate. Tell them about your inability to afford a lawyer, and ask if there is anything that can be done to assist you. If they can't help you directly, they will point you in the right direction.
Also call your local BAR Association. They will be able to direct you to lawyers that will work for pro bono or base the pay on the ability of the client to pay. Maybe contact Catholic Charities as well. They offer all different kinds of services, and they work directly on your ability to pay. Go onto their website (catholiccharities.org) and check it out. There should be a local number to contact them in the state you reside in.
Good luck and God bless. I am sorry for what you had to go through. . .

Looking For Information On Custody. Lawyers Help?
Two Months Ago My Daughters Father Filed A Temp. Restraining Order In Order To Take My Daughter. We Have Been Going To Court To Resolve That Part. His Accusations Were That I Was Doing Drugs. Him And His Mother Are Listed As The Restrainers Until The Court Tells Us Otherwise. I Have Had Supervised Visitations And Court Has Been Pushed Back. Today Child Protective Services Took Our Daughter From Him And Gave Him To His Mother Because He Came Out Dirty On A Drug Test. If Drug Tested I Would Be Clean. I Am Just Wondering If I Have Any Rights To Have My Daughter Instead Of His Parents.
That's what the upcoming hearing is for. Make sure you're able to pass a drug test. Depending on what state you're in, it could be a hair follicle test, which goes back a LOOONNGGG time. If you pass the test, there is no other evidence of drug use, and there is no other reason for the restraining order, you should be able to have your daughter.
Sounds like a messy situation. Sorry and good luck.
Christians Or Others - If You Committed A Felony, Would Want Your Defense Attorney To Be Christian Or Atheist?
I would definitely want a Christian attorney; since Christians are all sinners there is not such a scrutiny when it comes to honesty and ethics. Immoral acts and crimes are more readily understood in a Christian philosophical environment.
