Need Advice On Finding A Laywer/Law Firm Specializing In Estate Litigation In Multiple States...?
My Grandmother Passed Away Without A Will A Couple Months Ago And I Need To Find A Lawyer To Settle Her Estate. My Father Was Her Only Child And Both Him And Her Husband Are Deceased. I Was Informed That I Am Her Next Of Kin (Correctly? Incorrectly?) In Accordance With Pa Law. She Had A Brother Who I Am Not On Speaking Terms With.. I'M Not 100% Sure If He Is On The Deed But Tend To Think He Is Not.
Problem Is, I Live In Richmond, Va And The House Is In Philly, Pa. I Have Received A Tentative Offer Of $100,000 For It In As-Is Condition But Can'T Sell Without Being Made Administator Of Her Estate. I Have A Younger Brother But But I'M Fairly Certain I Could Get Him To Sign A Renunciation.
Financially, I'M Not Loaded But Not Entirely Broke. I Also Have Several $K Insurance Money Tied Up In Red Tape Right Now. Ideally I Could Find A Lawyer With Reasonable Initial Fees Who Would Be Willing To Work For A Percent Of The Profit Made From The House Sale. What Is The Best Way To Find One?
you could contact a probate attorney in your state and have him do the legwork for you, retaining counsel in pa., back draw it would lead to a shared fee agreement and nobody is really hot on that.

Should I Be A Marketing Major?
I Am Currently A Community College Student Who Will Be Transferring To Louisiana State University Next Semester. I Plan On Being A Double Major In Marketing And Art History, With A Minor In Entrepreneurship. If I Plan On Attending University Of Chicago Law School With A Focus On Commercial Litigation, Would Marketing Be A Good Choice? Or Should I Switch To Something Else?
(Besides Political Science)
Any And All Help Will Be Very Much Appreciated. Thank You.
Marketing may be an asset for Commercial Litigation, but in all honesty I don't know if it is necessarily the best background for an individual heading into Law. Majoring in Accounting, Finance and Human Resources will all provide you with a stronger background for corporate governance principles and corporate doctrines and legislation.
If you really enjoy marketing and feel as though it is something you have a personal interest in, then marketing is still a strong choice, but I'd suggest also completing coursework that will directly pertain to commercial litigation. A law school won't put a particular weighting into your major, but you will be better prepared if you've developed a strong foundation
Legal Self Defense?
So I Just Got Back From The Park And Me And My 4 Friends Who Are All Under 17 Played These 3 Mid 30 Year Old Looking Men In Basketball And One Of The Guys Started Arguing With Me And I Argued Back Cause I Thought We Were Just Kidding Around. But Then He Got In My Face And Said He'Ll &Quot;Knock My Lil *** Out&Quot; Im 16 And This Guy Is Mid 30 Years Old He'S Huge Got A Lumberjack Beard, Probably Weighs Almost 300 Pounds Like 6&Quot;5. I Told Him To Chill Cause Obviously I Didn'T Wanna Fight Him And Then We Finsihed The Game. Then I Went Home. And He Was Legit About To Fight Me. If I Had A Knife On Me Would I Be Able To Pull It Out And If He Charged At Me Or Swung At Me Would I Have Been Able To Stab Him Without Going To Jail Or Prison? Self Defense If You Ask Me Plus I'M A Minor And He'S Adult But He Didn'T Have A Weapon So What Would Have Happened Plz Help.
Our legal system is a real problem. Your better off staying out of trouble and away from the legal system. The whole "innocent until proven guilty" thing is a myth.
Your only allowed to fight back if your life is in danger. Let's say the guy attacks you and you really are afraid for your life and just fighting back. You pull a knife and stab the guy.
The police are going to question you. Your going to spend time in a holding cell. You'll probably need to post bail and hire a lawyer. You need to spend time in court, which is almost as bad as jail.
And if the cop dislikes you, then they'll find some bs reason to arrest you.
Most states have laws about what kind of weapons you can carry.
I Need A Good Dui Attorney In Birmingham, Alabama.?
I Was Recently Pulled Over For An Expired Tag In Birmingham And Told That I Had An Outstanding Warrant In Tuscaloosa For A Dui From 2005. I Was Taken To Tuscaloosa Police Department And Had A Court Date Set. At My Court Date I Had To Plead Not Guilty To Get A Continuance And Now At My Next Court Date I Need A Lawyer To Get The Case Dismissed. I Wasn't Even In The Car When The Cops Came To The Wreck, I Was Never Read My Rights, Never Arrested, Never Asked To Take A Breathalyzer Test. I Was Taken To The Hospital By Ambulance And Released The Next Day. I Am Now On Disability And Have 5 Children. If I Go To Jail, My Check And The Checks They Receive On My Behalf Each Month Will Be Taken Away. I Need A Good Lawyer That Can Work Out Payment Plans. My Court Date Is Next Tuesday, October 28, 2008. Please Help Me If You Know Anyone!!!!
Honestly, call your local Bar Association or a local attorney referral service and ask them for the attorneys that specialize in these matters. That's what these referral services are for. You can also look in the yellow pages, there are many attorneys that deal in DUI cases exclusively. Call a few and ask how long they have been practicing, their success rate, etc. If they are not forthright with this information then move on to the next one until you feel satisfied. Hope you get this straightened out for the sake of your kids. Good luck.

I Really Want To Know What Lawyers Do?
Ermm... Well Im In Yr 8 And Im Not Sure What I Want To Be When Im Older. I Was Just Wondering What Exactly Do Lawyers Do And Is It Hard Work. Also I Dont Want To Be Defending Murderers, Im Not Sure How It Works. Also If U Have Any Experience, Being A Lawyer, Just Say How U Found It Or Find It And What You Think Is Good And Bad About It. Plz Also Tell Me If U Need To Get Really Good Grades
There are many different kinds of lawyers, and most are not criminal lawyer who work in court rooms defending criminals like you see on TV.
Essentially, the law is very complex and not everyone has the time or critical thinking abilities to read, understand, apply and examine it. A lawyer's job is to do just that so that their clients don't have to. Individuals, companies and governments hire lawyers to tell them about the law.
This is about the simplest definition I could give that basically encompasses all types of lawyers. I would suggest you thinking about what you want to study specifically (criminal law, family law, business law, intellectual property law, etc.) and then get a book about careers in that field.
To get into a decent law school you do need to get good grades. If you're only in secondary school, though, you don't have to worry much yet. You can only enter law school after you already have a bachelor's degree in some other subject, unless you're a child prodigy or something!
After a bachelor's degree and law degree, you then have to get accepted into the BAR (not the place where you buy beer! The bureau that certifies practising lawyers and judges) and get licensed to practise in your state/province/county.
To get into law school, you do need good grades from your previous university studies, but you also need very good critical thinking skills. You will eventually have to take an LSAT exam. You can even check online now for practise/example exams to see what kind of skills you'll need.
Is A Lawyer Who Practices Law Solo Considered A Law Firm?
I Noticed That Many Lawyers Who Practice Solo Use The Term &Quot;Law Firm&Quot; On Their Website. Is A Single Lawyer Considered A Law Firm? On Wikipedia It Says It Is But On A Dictionary Website It Says That It'S A Firm Of &Quot;Lawyers&Quot; Which Is Obviously Plural. Which Is It?
If a lawyer has formed a legal entity (e.g., corporation, professional corporation, limited liability company, etc.), even if it only has one licensed/practicing attorney, then the entity may still be considered a "law firm."
