The City of Rockford has a mid-level job opening in its law department.  The City requires five years' experience, but the job posting says that "any satisfactory equivalent combination of experience" may be substituted for the required experience.  Sounds like they're asking people to argue why they're qualified.

One of the most important features of criminal attorney is an ability to understand that person can be innocent even in case he or she made something commonly considered to be wrong. Different people have different motivations and the same behavior with different motivations must be interpreted differently. These issues are not so easy for understanding, that is why I like to read your articles. You make complicated things more clear. Would you like to write something to ? There is a possibility to publish articles, blog posts and news. There is also an Attorney Directory and good lawyers can publish their contacts for free. This is a section of Arizona criminal attorneys on Attorney Directory and every lawyer can choose state and practice area while submitting contacts.
