When Paris Hilton is “in the house” why doesn’t she “represent” Manhattan?

Question by Peter O: When Paris Hilton is “in the house” why doesn’t she “represent” Manhattan?
New York City, and Manhattan in particular is the cultural capitol of the world. There are museums. great universities (Columbia, NYU, CCNY, Cooper Union just to name a few). Yet Paris, a child of privlidge by the way, doesn’t represent this side of Manhattan at all. She might as well come from a trailer park in West Virginia.

Because she’s far too busy “representing herself”.

Lawyers in VA that would represent a kid?

Question by slagathor97: Lawyers in VA that would represent a kid?
I was wondering if anyone knows where I could find a lawyer in Alexandria,Virginia that would represent a 16 year old against her parents? Or would at least give me the time of day. Please, no sass or rude comments. Anywhere in Virginia where I could ask over the phone about my case for free, preferably in Alexandria. Thank you!

You might find a lawyer who will spend a few minutes explaining to you why you don’t HAVE any sort of case, nor the legal right to press one, but that’s about it. Lawyers will often give a short consultation to a potential client, but since I would assume that a 16 yr old does not have any money to PAY the lawyer, even getting that far is doubtful. A 16 yr old cannot sue parents, because the parents have legal control over his/her.

If this is a serious matter where the minor needs protection, contact Children’s Services, who may be able to appoint a guardian.
