In November 2019, I was 15 (I’m 18 now) and was behind the passengers side of a Lyft driver. Is was around 3am and we got hit by a drunk driver on the highway. I watched my Lyft driver die and that was the last thing I remember. I woke in the hospital with a scraped knee, a broken rib and a... Read more »
Yes you should be able to recover some money for your injuries, but you need to find a lawyer immediately because the normal statute of limitations (time you have to sue) is 2 years. Since you were a minor this time could be extended but not for long. You need to call one of us personal injury...Read more »
Its a 2 point ticket in NJ check your insurer if they are going to charge you for these points. Unfortunately, clerical errors in NJ generally don't void a ticket. Your best chance to get no points on a ticket like this is to hire a good lawyer and fight the ticket.
I live in NJ. I am a crime victim. One defendant pled guilty to other charges and the charges related to my case were dismissed. Second defendant pled guilty and is currently on probation and paying restitution to me. Third defendant is a fugitive (so, open case). I appeared in court and made... Read more »
Being a crime victim is not a reason to be excused for jury duty, but a criminal lawyer may not want you on the case because of it. However, that being said generally you won't be on the only one on the jury that is a victim of the crime. In the last few years more and more people seem to be...Read more »
One was handwritten around 2007, maybe earlier. The other one was written in 2014. The first list contains a necklace that was given to me, by my mother in 2014. My mother passed Dec, 2021. The other sister says it’s still part of the list and wants it back. I strongly disagree.
Sounds like you have the item and it was on the later list so it sounds like you have the right to keep it. But a lawyer would need to review all the documents and the estate documents issued by the probate court to tell you anything with certainty.
My sister passed away and I am the one who managed her trust (approximately $250K). It is to be split between me and two brothers. My question is, do I simply distribute the trust, a third each and have each of us 3 declare the inheritance and pay taxes at our year end taxes, or does the trust pay... Read more »
Unfortunately, it appears, the law would consider you at fault for the accident as from your description it appears you were making a left turn into on coming traffic and therefore you must yield to oncoming traffic. But an attorney would need to see the accident report before making this decision.
My husband and I had arguments and he was trying to hug me from the back to calm me down. The police saw it and noticed there was a red mark on my arm. I was too emotional and didn't know what I said would cause legal consequences. So I said he did it. He was charged with domestic violence. In... Read more »
First your husband needs a lawyer, he is facing criminal charges that will leaving him with a criminal record of conviction and he can even go to jail if convicted. The lawyers that told you he doesn't need a lawyer aren't representing him so of course they will tell you just speak to...Read more »
The penalty range does not change no matter how many times you get convicted of this offense. That being said if the judge orders you to do something and you don't do it you could be charged with contempt of court.
I was waiting for someone to pull out. Thought they needed a few mor feet to back up. There was no one behind me so I did. The officer in training maybe 19 yo, screamed at me to stop so crazy I though I hit someone. I told her I was just parking she said you can't back up in a one way. Then... Read more »
Wrong date and time would probably be considered a clerical error. Second, yes you can get a ticket for backing up 3 ft. The question is should you fight the ticket and the answer depends on what exactly the violation number of your ticket was since you did not List It.
Just because you're in a hospital does not mean that you're immune from getting a drug charge. That being said based on the facts of your case you may have a defense. I would suggest that you set up one of the free in office consultation that most of us criminal lawyers offer.
Your problem is that if you don't do this case correctly they will just re-issue the ticket to the correct party you. I suggest that you get a good lawyer to make sure you have the best chance of winning this case. The State will try to argue this is a clerical error where as your attorney...Read more »

There was harm done to a child and involvement of DCPP, the assault done to the child has not been established in court due to postponement.

Jail time certainly looks like it is almost certain for the above offender as this person has multiple charges that could lead to that. That being said everything depends on the facts of the case and how good of a lawyer the defendant hires and lastly never under estimate luck.

Attorney Boyer is right. A Postnuptial agreement however is only enforceable provided it is fair at the time they are made and fair at the time that they are sought to be enforced. The deed really wont help you. Make sure both of you have your own lawyer.
The answer is it depends on the facts of the case but if a parent was required to be present at all times, then a guidance counselor would not be able to speak to any child. If your child has been charged or you think he/she may be charged with something, setup a consultation with a lawyer. It...Read more »
