    Any specialty will suffice. Accounting and Finance are helpful. However, your emphasis should be on matching your aptitudes with subjects. The better the match the more likely you will have higher satisfaction and grades. High grades are critical to your career in the beginning. I strongly recommend organizations like Johnson O'Connor Research Foundation (www.jocrf.org) for aptitude testing. It will prove to be valuable to you.

    Every situation is different. No other lawyer can give you good advice without knowing all the facts. You should have a meeting with your attorney and ask him (or her) to explain in detail why he or she is suggesting that you settle. A good lawyer will have no problem explaining the reasons for the advice. I certainly hope that you researched the lawyer before you hired he or she.

    You have valid questions, but any lawyer trying to answer would not have enough information to help you. Why are you waiting until the day before the hearing? Your lawyers have an obligation to adequately and completely answer all your questions to your satisfaction. I am assuming that your are a party to the claim or lawsuit as the parent or next friend of your son. You may want to call your lawyers and tell them that you want to meet more than one day before the hearing. You are entitled...

    Perhaps the fastest way to get an answer to your question is to look in the business pages of your local phone book. Look at the ads under attorneys and call one or two who advertises personal injury or car wrecks AND free consultation. You do not have to hire or pay the attorney who advertises "free consultation."

    When you pay the ticket you received be sure to plead "nolo." you can do this at the office of the JP. This will mean that the ticket could not be used against you in a civil lawsuit should there be one. Enterprise will also go after the person who actually rented the car because that person violated the rental agreement. Unless the investigating officer saw the wreck the accident report in most instances cannot be used against you in a lawsuit. Enterprise will likely run a credit check...

    I am assuming in answering your question that the other driver is at fault and you are dealing wiht his insurance company. Litigation can be expensive. Ask the insurance adjuster on what facts he is basing the statement that the damage existed before the wreck. You need to give the adjuster evidence to document his file that the damage didn't exist before the wreck. Get hand written statements form people who saw the truck before the wreck and can state the damage wasn't there. Good examples...

    Lawsuits are public records if he actually filed a lawsuit as opposed to receiving a settlement without filing a lawsuit. In most stated lawsuit from auto accidents have to be filed in one of three counties: 1) where the accident happened; 2) where the defendant lives; 3) sometimes, but rarely, where the injured person lives. Start by calling the district clerk in the county where your former spouse lives and asking about any lawsuit filed by him. The clerk's office can tell you the name and...

    The attorney is doing "due diligence." He might be negligent in asking his clients to settle without obtaining evidence of insurance coverage. Sometimes there is more than one insurance policy that would cover a wreck. For example, you might be driving a friend's car. the friend may have insurance and you may have insurance on your car - both policies may cover the wreck. the questions for the most part are standard inquiries. However, I would suggest that you do not sign anything requiring you...
