It sounds like you may need to speak with an attorney who can review your specific case and provide legal advice tailored to your situation. It is unusual for someone to be charged for the same offense in multiple courts, especially if one of the charges has already been disposed of and... Read more »

Im wondering if it is legal for me to watch a house to gain information on a suspect wanted for aggravated assault off duty in a normal car

It is important to note that driving with a suspended license is considered a criminal offense and therefore subject to criminal laws, not civil rights laws. However, in general, law enforcement officers are required to follow proper procedures and protocols when making an arrest, and individuals... Read more »

If a police officer has enough probable cause to get a warrant signed by a Judge then he can move forward. It is not up to the police officer to determine guilt or innocence. That part is up to the Prosecutor and the court. Take it from a former police officer, in this instance, you have no... Read more »
over child custody due to dfacs negligence and due process
answered on Feb 5, 2023
I don't know any attorney who doesn't expect to be paid just like doctors, dentists, painters, landscapers, and everyone else who provides a service expects payment. Attorney's don't support their practices and pay their staff from doing free legal work.
I called today as I still have not received any payment confirmation, court documentation, such as satisfaction of judgement, etc. and was trying to figure out why. The day payment was made I was told by this company my wire transfer was successful and applied to account.
Today though,... Read more »
I explained to public defender but she was charged and given probation and fine. She is mentally disabled so she can’t pay. What can I do? I’m a single mom with a 15 year old daughter as well. I don’t have $3000 laying around.

In and of itself, I don't see there being a problem with a juror being an old classmate of the judge. The primary consideration for a juror to be seated is whether or not he/she is able to be fair and impartial under the present circumstances. If the juror was an old classmate of the... Read more »

A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks.

The D.A. represents the State, not you. Thus, the D.A. is not going to present self defense evidence which would benefit you. You need to hire a criminal defense attorney who can argue and present evidence that you acted in self defense.

Yes. Take the license plate to court and request the dash cam footage and present it to the judge or jury. At that point, the judge or jury will weigh the credibility of the above evidence against the police officer's testimony and determine if the tag was obscured.
I was approached by a deputy while standing in a hotel parking lot and charged with obstruction for failure to ID, arrested and put in jail in Georgia.
answered on Aug 18, 2022
You do not have to provide ID unless you are driving a car or the officer has probable cause to suspect a crime was being committed. Thus, if the officer had probable cause to believe you were committing a crime, then any civil suit would fail. Further, suing police officers for conduct committed... Read more »

Isn't this violating Lawyer ethic laws?

answered on Jun 8, 2022
An attorney probably needs to know more about the facts, before they can agree to represent you. They will want to know if you complied with the police requests or if you were the aggressor. They would likely want to know if you were under the influence of any medications at the time. There are... Read more »
