How Do Law Firms Work?
What I Mean Is, Like, What Is A Firm?
What Types Of Firms Are There Because There Are Firms For Accounting.
My Friends Dad Work At A Firm With Like 7 Other Guys In A Small Business Complex. While I Hear That There Are Big Law Firms In Cities That Have Hundreds Of People Working There They Went To Like Yale And Get 100K After A Year On The Job, Right Off The Bat. Clearly My Friends Dad Doesnt Make That Much Lol But Why Doesn'T He Make That Much? Whats So Different About The Firm He Works At And The Firm In The City?
Wow, you sound like my in-laws "why doesn't your firm make more money?" It it a tough question.
The big law firms in the major cities either have been around for a long time or are mergers of firms that were aroung for many years. The importance of that is that in the 1950s and in to the 1970s there were fewer lawyers than there are now by a really large amount. The reasons are that law school was pretty much for the rich, no student loans, and law schools were really selective as to who they let in.
So these big firms begain in an era where they would get more clients. More clients mean that the firm can hire more attorneys. More attorneys means more people who talk about the firm and ... more clients.
Also with lots of attorneys working at a firm you can take on more cases because there is experience in different areas of law. You get a firm with 7 people and even if each one is good at a different type of law, that is only 7 types of a potential of hundreds. So the bigger the firm the more different types of cases and more clients.
Now, a single attorney can and is licensed to do almost every type of law -- except those areas that require an additional test. So, theorethically that attorney could do lots more cases, BUT that is not the way it is in reality. Because of malpractice issues attorneys tend to keep to one area of law -- less cases, less clients.
Finally right now there are lots more attorneys than ever before. In Illinois where I practice we have more lawyers than doctors -- really sad. So just because of the glut of lawyers that firm with 7 people will have fewer clients.
Your friend's dad probably made the decision to stay in a smaller firm (and make less money) because he believed that there are other important things in life besides working. Many attorneys want a life outside the law firm and in a big law firm you are expected to work long hours, weekends, holidays. Your friend's dad was probably able to be their for his family because of that decision to work in a small firm. For many attorneys money is not number one, family is.
Hope this helps.
Advice From Law Enforcer Wives Or Girlfriends Only!!!!?
So There Is This Sheriff And I Have A Big Crush On Him, But He Is Always Busy Working :(....In Person He Is A Great, Funny, Respectable Guy....But On The Phone Very Boring I Have 2 Carry The Conversation And That'S Hard Cause I Run Out Of Things To Say :( We'Ve Been Talking For A Yr And I Wanna Tell Him I Like Him But I Don'T Want It To Be Awkward Between Us If He Doesn'T Feel The Same Way & Im Also Scared Because I Heard That Law Enforcers Can Be Very Controlling....Some Advice Please
Wow! People are really harsh about this...
Here is the deal--ANYBODY can be controlling...not just those in law enforcement. In my experience, I have yet to come across a guy who is in law enforcement who is controlling or ones to the point that some on here have mentioned. Most are very kind, protective and attentive and quite easy-going. It may be tough because their schedules are not always ideal so it takes a lot of understanding on their partner's part but I don't think it's really anything that should deter. In addition, many guys are not phone guys and don't like talking on the phone which is why you probably feel like that about talking to him on the phone. I know my husband is like that because he hates talking on the phone unless he has to. Lastly, people should not judge PO's based on a few bad ones--they are not all cheats and liars. If anything, most of them are really loyal and get very defensive when they are called as such because of the behavior of a few. Divorce rates in law enforcement aren't any higher than in any other occupation, so statistics are misleading and do not tell you the whole truth and what they are truly based on and compared to.
If you like him, then go for it. You've been talking to him for a year now and you won't know anything until you actually try. The worst that can happen is that he doesn't like you. However, don't let misconceptions and stereotypes put you off because though there are guys who may fit them, the majority don't.
Irish..: Fathers Rights?
Irish: Fathers Rights For Children?
What Are The Fathers Rights In Ireland For His Child After His Relationship With The Childs Mother Ends, In Irish Law? I Understand The Mother Automatically Gains Rights For The Child But What If The Mother Has Been Neglecting This Child? Eg. Not Feeding Her, Not Bothering To Change Her Nappies, Etc.Does The Father Have More Rights In That Situation? Thanks For Any Help In Advance
Unmarried Fathers' Rights in Ireland
If you're an unmarried father in the Republic of Ireland, you have no automatic legal rights with regard to your child, even if paternity has been established by virtue of your name being entered in the Register of Births. If you have an informal agreement with the mother of your child, this can be made enforceable by applying to have it made a rule of court. You may also acquire joint guardianship of your child by means of a statutory declaration signed together with the child's mother. Importantly, you will need her to agree to sign. She is under no legal obligation to do so. However, if she refuses, you may apply for a court order for joint guardianship and/or other legal rights.
Rules of Court
An application can be made to a local district court to make any written agreement between you and the mother of your child "rules of court," which are as enforceable as a court order. The agreement needs to be fair and reasonable, and in the best interests of the child. Remember, the courts will not be able to enforce any informal arrangements you have made with the mother of your child which have not been brought forward by way of the aforementioned application.
You may acquire joint guardianship if the child's mother agrees, and you both sign a statutory declaration in front of a peace commissioner, commissioner for oaths or a notary public. Joint guardianship encompass all the rights and duties a parent has with regard to his child, including the duty to care and provide for the child, including maintenance, and the right to make decisions about the child's education, religious education and general welfare.
You cannot make such a declaration without first having made a formal agreement with the child's mother regarding custody and access to the child. Once the declaration has been signed, following correct procedure, only a court may take these rights away from you.
In the event that the child's mother will not agree to sign the statutory regulation for joint guardianship or undertake to make any written agreement with you that can be applied to be made rules of court, you may still apply to a local district court for joint guardianship and other rights.
When deciding these matters, the court is compelled by law to make a ruling that will be in the best interests of the child. Therefore, access to the child is usually granted to an unmarried father rather than joint or full custody. Only under compelling circumstances will a court remove a child from the custody of her mother.
Marriage and Adoption
If the mother of your child marries another man, this will not affect your legal position with regard to your child. But if her spouse adopts the child, you will not be able to acquire any legal rights with respect to your child. If you are the joint guardian of your child, no adoption can take place without your consent. If you are not the joint guardian, then it is a legal requirement that you are consulted on the adoption, if possible. But your consent is not a requirement for the adoption to take place. If you marry the mother of your child, you will automatically become your child's joint guardian.
What Do Family Lawyers Do?
Im Interested In Pusuing A Job In Law. And I Was Just Wondering What Do Family Lawyers Really Do? Other Than Deal With Divorce.
Family lawyers can also serve as mediators in resolving differences without returning back to court - for example, if mom signs up the child for soccer practice - the dad should not initiate contempt proceedings just because he wasn't asked.
Family lawyers are appointed as attorneys for children and are obliged to advocate for the best interests of the child.
Family lawyers also work for House of Ruth and other organizations which deal with protecting women against domestic violence and ensuring that women receive due process.
Finally, family lawyers do represent juveniles at juvenile court hearings and anything involving child in need of assistance (CINA) or child in need of service (CINS) proceedings.
Can Adoption Lawyers Help A Foreign Born Child Sue Their Adopted Parents?
Trying To Figure Out The Best Way To Go About Suing My Adopted Parents For Child Neglect Child Abandonment And Child Abuse. My Story, I Was Born In Germany But I'Ve Been In The States Since I Was 3 To 4 Months Old, I Was Adopted At The Age Of 12 It Was Mandatory For Them To Apply And Get My Social Security Number For Me. However, My Adopted Parents Kicked Me Out Before I Was 18. They Never Gave Me Any Paper Work, Nor Did They Even Apply And I Lost $600 On The N-600 Form Because I Didnt Have Any Or The Right Paper Work. I Couldnt Graduate High School, I Can'T Work, I Cant Even Get An I.D.. Could Some One Please Guide Me In The Right Direction.
I bet if you got in trouble you would get identified real quick. In doing that, you will generate paperwork that is a valid document to be able to obtain your drivers license or state ID provided you have a valid address. I'm not telling you to go out and get in trouble, but I know someone in Texas (not adopted) that had basically the same problem for basically the same reason (not having the right ID to get an ID) and it worked for him. If you are still under legal age or not, know your rights by speaking to an attorney knowledgeable in Adoption and Minor aged Law. You didn't say how old you are now. I'm adopted also and although it doesn't seem to matter after you are of legal age weather you have those papers or not, having those papers is the only past the state has allowed us. If you know the attorney or Home that facilitated your adoption, you can petition the court, maybe the county clerk for a copy of your adoption decree but being from another country...IDK..an attorney could guide you or friend me and I can give you a list of adoption sites for research.....
How Much Do I Stand To Gain In The Personal Injury Settlement?
I Got Into A Car Accident Recently And My Lawyer'S Tone Made Me A Little Nervous. I Had A Head Injury (Probably A Mild Concussion) That Involved Memory Loss From The Day Of The Accident As Well As Whip Lash. I Was Ambulanced To A Local Hospital, And I Had Two Follow Up Visits One Of Which Was With My Primary Care Physician. I Had X-Rays Ct Scans Etc. My Medical Bills Probably Total Around 5000. My Car Was Totaled At A Value Of 11000, And I Had To Use Vacation Time At Work Which I Plan On Recovering For About 1200. My Personal Care Doctor Performed X-Rays On My Back And Told Me She Would Call In About 10 Days If The Pain Subsided And I Felt Back To Normal That I Should Be All Set With My Treatment. When That Happened I Was What I Felt To Be Healthy Again And I Informed Her Of This, So There Was No Physical Therapy Or Chiro Visits. It Seems My Lawyer Didn'T Like This When He Found Out. I Personally Am Not Trying To Game The System. My Injuries Were Real And I Did Experience Pain, But I Am Not Going To Lie And Say I Am Not Feeling Better When I Do. I Am Under The Impression That I Still Stand To Gain Something In Pain And Suffering. My Medical Bills Were Around 5000 And Its Not Like I Had No Injuries, I Was Under The Impression That Before Lawyer Fees I Could Be Looking At Around 1-3 Times My Medical Bills. I Don'T Understand Why My Lawyer Seems Frustrated, Maybe He Was Hoping For An Even Larger Pay Day? The Other Drive Was Ruled Completely At Fault By The Insurance Companies Fyi.
To gain personal injury settlement, there must be lots of evidences. It will depend on how will the doctor testify for your condition. And any way your lawyer wants you to gain larger compensation. It will not just cover your medical bills but also the time you wasted for having the injury including lost wages, pain and suffering.
