To illustrate this assertion, we give some figures. According to the Judicial Department under the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation in 2007 only 0,8% passed in the court of professional cases have ended acquittal, the appellate court in professional cases modified or revoked only 12,3% to appeal the verdict, the appellate court lifted or modified by 16,3% appealed court decisions in civil cases. Thus, if the results of the work you hired a lawyer to obtain a court decision that is not relevant to your interests, change it would be extremely difficult, or, in general, impossible. How not to make a mistake in choosing a lawyer? Unfortunately, despite the fairly wide range of proposals for legal services, find a specialist right for you, is not easy. Firstly, in this issue of little use advice friends and relatives who have had experience with our judicial system and apply for legal aid. Even if they hired a specialist good job, you may find that you it is not fit. The reason is simple. In the legal profession (including lawyers) is not compulsory specializations, such as doctors. Therefore, every lawyer has the right to provide legal advice on any issues (protecting the interests of in professional cases, with certain exceptions, may only lawyers with a status of counsel). However, given that the Russian legislation currently includes 2,727 current laws and more than 286 thousands of regulations, it becomes clear that the purpose of specialists in all areas of the law simply does not exist.
