What Is The Best Field Of Law?
I Am Thinking Of Law School And Was Wondering If Anyone Had Opinions On Which Was The Best Field Of Law...
For Fun Daily Work?
For Time With Family?
For Most Overall Fullfillment?
My husband is an attorney and he has friends in all areas of law. Most are unhappy with their career choice. The ones who are happy are almost all in criminal law (ie. District Attorney or Public Defender.) Public employees tend to have a decent salary, great benefits, and unless you are in trial, reasonable hours. The L.A. Public Defender starts at about $60k and after 15 years, you'll make about $110k. Not the "gobs of money" you think about, but a decent living.
The public sector criminal attorneys are the people who went to law school knowing what they wanted to do and did it. This is the best reason to go to law school.
Too many people go to law school not out of a burning passion for law but because it was a professional program and they thought they'd make good money.
Unless you are in the public sector and fighting for a cause, law is a business like any other. At the "big firms" Senior Partners can make seven figures -- but that's after 20 years of 80 hour work weeks.
The most lucrative field is Patent Law but you've got to have quite a bit of undergraduate science and pass a special Patent Law exam on top of the bar exam to practice in Patent Courts.
Intellectual Property pays more on average than other forms of civil law.
Having your own practice can help you balance work/life issues and can also be quite lucrative. But some people who do this barely squeak out a living. Again, it boils down to your business skills.
If you really want to be a lawyer -- go! Don't let anyone hold you back. But, if you're just searching for a profession, think twice about law. Almost every private sector lawyer I know (including my husband) wishes they had picked another path.

Do I Need An Attorney To Help Me Appeal My Property Taxes Against The State?
I Am Appealing My Property Taxes Against The State Of Michigan. My Realtor Advised Me To Seek An Attorney So Because I Have No Chance Of Winning. I Don'T Have The Money To Pay An Attorney. So I'M Wondering If I Stand A Chance? I'M Trying To Get My Home Appraised So I Can Prove My Home Is Not Worth The Taxable Value. But I'M Also Wondering What Other Type Of Proof Would Help To Substantiate My Claim And Win. Please Help?
I don't think you're understanding what you're saying. Your property taxes have nothing to do with your state - they have to do with your CITY. Also, what exactly are you appealing? Are you appealing that you shouldn't have to pay any property taxes? Or are you seeking to change the assessed value at which you're taxed for? If you're seeking to challenge the assessed value, that happens ALL THE TIME. There's a reason your city's notice of assessment for property taxes gives you information on how to file appeals - because they see it happen all the time. Some properties are grossly overvalued (for the sole purpose of taking property tax) while some are undervalued. For those overvalued, they appeal because it's the smart thing to do and they will most likely win. For undervalued properties, they appeal to get it raised because it looks bad that your home is grossly undervalued when there's no reason it should be.
You don't have any proof to win this. It's an appeals board that sees your claim and decides how to proceed. I suggest your realtor to help you pull comparables in your area and their 2011 property tax assessments and see how you line up compared to theirs. If you're in line with them, you most likely won't win. If yours is completely out of whack, you might win. Get those tax assessment values and go from there.

Does Guardian Have Custody Rights?
If A Parent Gives Temporary Guardianship To A Family Member That Is Related By Marriage, Then When That Parent Wants The Child Back And The Guardian Threatens To Take Custody If The Parent Takes The Child, Does The Guardian Have Rights To File For Custody Of The Child Against The Parent?
Regardless of whether it went through the courts or not, the parent signed away guardianship, not custody, so if the guardian is keeping the child against the parents wishes, then they are guilty of kidnapping. What the parent needs to do is send a certified letter to the temporary guardian telling them that they are revoking the temporary guardianship effective immediately and want the child returned to them in 48 hours. If the child is not returned to them, then they can file a kidnapping charge. The guardian certainly can file for custody, but it would be unusual for them to get it. And as far as the other responders are concerned, guardianship is not necessarily custody. It depends on how the temporary guardianship is worded. They are actually two separate entities.
What Is The Avg Fee Of A Estate Lawyer?
I Have One Handling My Case For About Two Years. I Inherited About $300,000, But Now Its Down To $250,000. This Lawyer Is Looking For My Deceased Moms Death Cert. I Was Left This Estate From My Aunt. I Thought It Was 5% Of The Estate. This Sullivan County. Your Thoughts Please
Most estate attorneys either work for a specified percentage of the total estate value (as seems to be the case here), or they work on an hourly fee. When this attorney started handling this case, he should have provided you with a written retainer agreement that clearly specified how he would be paid. If you do not have a copy of this, ask for a copy to be sent to you.
If you are having a dispute over the fee being charged and you can't work it out with your lawyer, then go to the state bar (you should be able to find their website online). I don't know where Sullivan County is, so I don't know what state you are in. However, each state bar in the country has a "fee dispute resolution process" where the bar will act as a neutral third party. They basically hear your side of the story first and find out why you think you are being mis-charged. Then they will go to the attorney, get a copy of all relevant documents, and ask for his side of the story. If they determine that you are, in fact, being overcharged, they can bring discipline charges against the attorney and force him to give the money back.
Believe me, attorneys take it VERY seriously when there is a fee dispute and the state bar gets involved. In fact, most attorneys are more than happy to sit down and discuss the issue with you and try to work it out. After all, if you aren't happy with them, that only increases the chance that they can kiss goodbye any repeat or referral business, not to mention that no attorney wants to get sued by a former client.
So get a copy of your retainer agreement and give your attorney a call to discuss the charges.
