A really good divorce attorney in Clevland, OH

Asking for a friend. Her husband just told her he wants a separation/divorce, but refuses to move out of the house because he wants to co-parent. Lots of details about why they are heading for divorce, but she needs an attorney that will fight for her and kids. She has talked to two attorneys and they seem soft. Her husband is very smart, manipulative, and willing to play dirty. She needs a strong advocate. Help!

Severe car accident & injuries, unquestionable fault - get an attorney?

I am helping a family friend who was in a severe car accident. She is not a native English speaker and has zero experience with lawyers. I have worked with them plenty in a business setting, but never around personal injury. There is no question of fault and she has injuries that will impact her for life. Should we try to negotiate with the insurance company ourselves and save the 30% fee an attorney would take? [more inside]

Overseas Law Jobs

I am an attorney working for a midsize firm in the US. I am fairly happy with my job, but have always wanted to work abroad (particularly in the UK). I have no clue how desireable (if at all) US licensed attorneys are abroad or how to go about finding job openings. I found several legal recruiters based in Europe online, but the sites are a bit sketchy. I know that there are various legal exchange programs, but they are generally in non-profit fields or send you to third world countries (which is admirable, but not what I am looking for). Any thoughts, resources or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Do we need a lawyer when we close on our mortgage refinance?

Because we are in New York state, when we close on our refi, we are going to have to sign all of our paperwork in person. As I understand it, New York law requires this. We had our own lawyer present when we closed on the purchase of this house. Should we have one when we close on the refinance? If so, Why? If it matters, we are in Nassau county, and we are refinancing with the original bank who has owned our mortgage since we purchased the home.

Help my friend find a lawyer to represent him for banking in Mexico

My friend has an HSBC Mexico account, that had about 40,000 dollars in it.. he didn't use the account for a year, he called today to get a new checkbook, and found out the account had zero balance in may of 2013, and the account was closed. HSBC Mexico said they can't give more information unless he goes in person to a branch in Mexico. He is willing to hire a lawyer, or Power of attorney, or someone to investigate this in Mexico who legally represent him. He is currently far from mexico and can't make it there any time soon. His mom is in Mexico, can she get power of attorney?

Any advice on how to do this? How can he go about finding a lawyer in Mexico who can help him? Or what actions can he take? He suspects fraudulent activity as he did login to his internet banking last year and saw all his money there.
