Monday, August 4, 2014

If when you need a lawyer you open the phone book and just pick a lawyer to represent you then you are setting yourself up to fail. Having to deal with lawyers and the court system is very stressful. It is so stressful that we just want to get the process over with. We don't think of the future impact of out current actions.

Interview Questions For A Lawyer
I am not saying don't use the phone book. You should use whatever resources are available to find the best lawyer to represent you. I am saying, don't choose one just be he or she was recommended by a friend, or because you saw an advertisement..

The first step in choosing a good lawyer is knowing the specialty of law you need representation for. Once you know if it criminal, DUI, probate, real estate, or a myriad of other specialties, then you can develop a list or lawyers to interview. Once you have made a list of potential lawyers, you will want to make appointments to interview them. The are any number of questions to ask any potential attorney, here are a few questions that will help you determine whether or not they are the right attorney to represent you in your case.

1. How long have they been practicing?
2. Are they a member of the local bar association?
3. How long have they lived locally?
4. Have they ever had a disciplinary proceeding brought against them? If so, what for?
5. How long have they been practicing the specialty of law that you need?
6. What is their win loss ratio?
7. Can you speak to any of the clients they have worked with previously?
8. Are they going through a life crisis like a divorce or bankruptcy?
9. Is my case winnable? And, how would you define a win for this case?
10. How long would you estimate the case will take to complete?
11. Do you put your fee structure in writing?
12. Do you hate loosing?
13. What is your relationship like with local law enforcement, attorneys and judges?
14. Will you be handling my case or will another attorney or law clerk?
15. How often will you communicate with me about the case?

These are just some of the questions you should ask before you hire an attorney. Have a list ready. Remember you are interviewing him not the other way around. Many lawyers would like you to believe that they choose the cases. Many try to make you think they are doing you a favor by representing you. If the lawyer you are interviewing acts that way, politely move on to the next interview. There are many lawyers in the world today. There is no need to stick with one that is arrogant. I hope you have found this useful.

A lawyer is a person who is authorized by the state or country to practice law, give advice to his or her clients and represent their legal matters in the courts. According to classes or ranks of jurists lawyers can be designated as advocate, attorney, barrister, counselor and solicitor.

A Day In The Life Of A Lawyer.

1. Get ready to travel: Lawyers spend most of their time in offices and courtrooms. They travel to meet their clients wherever they are and homes, business places, even emergency rooms in hospitals and state or federal prisons can be a fairly regular visit depending on which area of the law a lawyer is involved. They also travel different places for meetings and to gather proof or evidence for their case that they can submit to the courts, legislative bodies, or to other high authorities of the law.

2. Irregular work hours may be the norm: Lawyers quite often have irregular work schedules and even work for several hours in discussing with clients or preparing the briefs of the case during non office hours.

3. Back to the studying board: A lawyer is also known as an attorney who acts both as an advocate and an advisor in society. The advocates represent one of their clients in criminal or civil trials by arguing and presenting evidence to the court to protect their client. On the other hand the advisors give advice to their clients regarding their business and legal personal matters. All the lawyers, whether an advocate or an advisor, have to research the purpose of laws and judicial decisions to apply them in the critical circumstances faced by their clients. The most important aspect is that a lawyer's job depends very much upon his or her own field of specialization and position. All this requires continual studying.

Types of Lawyers:

There are allot of areas to specialize in as a lawyer. This list is not exhaustive but covers some of the most popular fields you'll be able to specialize into if becoming a lawyer.

Immigration lawyer, wrongful death, traffic, tax, software, social security, securities, personal injury lawyers, patent, nursing home, mesothelioma, medical malpractice, malpractice, litigation, international, insurance, injury, fraud, employment, dwi, dui, divorce, defense, criminal, construction, corporate, compensation, car accident, bankruptcy, auto accident, assault and asbestos lawyers.

There are special JD programs for those students who are interested in working at the same time as pursuing their education in their spare time.

How Does Law Affect Us?

Tuesday, July 1, 2014

Although we all have an understanding of what law is, and generally why it's appropriate that it should be in place to serve and regulate our conduct in society, we seldom think of what law actually means in an everyday context. What is law for the average Joe in the street? How does law impact on our lives from day to day? Indeed, is the law a distant concept with which we find it hard to relate? In this article we will look at some of the fundamental ways law operates in society, in addition to the nature of the law as we know it.

For some people, they feel as though the law is there merely to protect their interests, and that they have no need for daily interaction. However, they assume that if the day comes where their behaviour is called into question, the law will operate, the course of justice will be run, and the will of the people will be fulfilled. This is perhaps a naïve interpretation of the function of law, and indeed the way it operates in our lives throughout the day. For instance, at the top level we have the constitution, establishing parameters within which the government can and cannot act to protect the citizens of our nation. That has an overwhelming effect on the way in which our government and indeed our country is run, which has a knock on effect on everything we do throughout the day and how we do it. Even at a local level, the law interacts with the services we are provided, the jobs we work and pretty much everything to do with the lives we lead. A distant concept? I don't think so.

The law does not just operate in criminal spheres, nor is it confined to merely constitutional matters and the distribution of power. Law is a significantly more sophisticated tool in the orchestration of the day-to-day organisation of society, through regulating not only personal conduct but also the way we act in business situations. Take for example the everyday task of boarding a train. The law regulates many aspects of this feat: (1) the criminal law and the constitution permits us to board public transport. (2) The constitution permits us to make contract with another. (3) The laws of contract permit us to form a contract for transport with the train company, and ensure that that contract is fulfilled. (4) The laws of contract and tort allow us to board without fear of injury, or with remedy should the worst happen. Finally the law of ownership and currency allows us to hand over money in consideration for this service, which is of value to the other contracting party. In fact, the law regulates just about everything we do, and is vital in doing so to ensure the smooth running of community and every aspect of our lives.

The law is not some abstract notion that can and will protect us when we need to rely on it. The law is an integral part of democratic life, and something which regulates our conduct, and in essence allows us to act according to our own desires within reason. Some may think the law is too restrictive in certain areas, but it works. The law serves its function as regulating our behaviour very well, and if it doesn't? We can change it.

The fact is, law has been an important part of society since it began, with implied legal and social orders and boundaries that could not be crossed. Today, it is a sophisticated network of guidelines and regulations which is adapted to shape the way we live our lives from one day to the next. There is no doubt that the law is important to the citizen, and plays a profound impact on the lives of the people on a daily basis.

Legal Systems

Long times ago, since humans gradually settled a little group to help each other survive in this world. In each group of human, there was a leader who controlled and managed the group. When the problem had occurred he or she must judged and make a decision to solve the problems. The times past, a little group had became a larger group, groups had become a society. In the other word, society is a big community which containing many groups of people. As you can see, people started to have complicated connection while they had connected across the group. A leader's decision was not enough to judge the people. So, they had to find out another strategy to fix this problem which seem likes more and more out of control.

 Therefore, caused leader's decision cannot used as a standard in the society. They created a simple rules to control people's behavior by we did not have to wait for the wrong act to be done. This could be helpful to prevent people who was going to have a wrong doing. This simple rules might be different in other local area. It was depends on tradition or convention in each area for the comfort of the judge to adapt this rule in each case. They had also drafted the punishment in each case. Punishment was an essential element of the rules because people frightened the punishments, so they must realize to control their behavior to avoid the punishment. This is the beginning of the law.

Every decisions of the judge had record and reused for another case. The decision had become standard of the judge to justify the case. And this was the beginning of "Common Law" system.
When the time past, the simple rules still have a lot of gaps people learnt to use this gap to avoid sanction. So, the result was an obstacle in society when this simple rule cannot control people.

After that, administrators who govern the society started to draft the law which containing punishments, sanction and rules that covered all of the case.
So, the simple rules had been written in the code. When the judge had to justify each case, they can use this code instead of the simple rules which was unwritten law. This was the beginning of "Civil Law" system. The judge can makes the decision by refer to the articles in the code.

Legal Tips For Renters

Wednesday, June 4, 2014

There are some important things to remember when renting a property. Many landlords put illegal provisions into their contracts. It is illegal to include provisions that waive the tenets rights under the landlord tenet act, to include provisions that force tenets to pay the landlord's attorney fees, to seize their property, or to enter the rental property without proper notice. Specifically, the landlord must provide two days notice to a tenet before entering the rental property and cannot abuse the privilege to harass a tenet.

Tenets have a right to defend themselves in court that cannot be waived by a contract. Tenets cannot be locked out of apartments even if they are behind on rent, likewise they cannot shut off utilities for the same reason. Landlords cannot retaliate for legal actions against them. Landlords have a responsibility to provide numerous benefits to tenets, and if they fail to provide these things tenets can sue. These things include locks on doors, garbage cans, and keep the property free of pests such as termites and rats. The must keep the property weather-tight and maintain equipment and facilities so that they are of similar repair as when the tenet moved in. If you feel any of your rights have been violated, consult your leasing contract and an attorney. You may also wish to contact other tenets who believe their rights have been violated.
