The birth mother signed a Post Adoption contact agreement thinking that we would be able to keep in contact with the adoptive parents. The attorney never said that both parties needed to sign. I’ve recently learned that they never signed an agreement. This would have been a dealbreaker in our... Read more »
A Georgia attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. This sounds like something that has to be sorted out between your incoming and outgoing attorneys, and possibly the carrier, depending on how it's handled. Good luck
I'm sorry to hear about your car. If you were injured while working, then you have a workers' compensation claim. If the injury was serious, you should speak with a lawyer to bring your claim immediately. If you were not working, but you were seriously injured, then you will need a...Read more »
The lawyer said things to the adoptive parents the day of our daughter’s birth that neither one of us said, nor told her to say. We weren’t aware of the worst possible outcomes in adoption either. If we had a clue that it would be like this we would’ve never done it. How is this legal? How... Read more »
Was this your lawyer or the lawyer for the other person? What was written out in the papers that were signed? You may want to consult with an attorney who can review the facts of the case in detail and present you with any options you may have.
I have a case that has many faces: active divorce Since 2016, proposed settlement presented July 8, 2016, final judgment on July 14, 2016, after mediation and consent order signed by judge Feb 9, 2016. My X bringing contempt charges for incurring debt on credit cards. It was mutual and nothing was... Read more »
This law group was not her or her husband's attorney. They were fishing for work. She did not know they were getting a divorce and had not even been served yet. This law group had her case number and name of the judge. Is this not legal to solicit work like that?
This is legal. Solicitation by mail is allowed per the State Bar rules. They searched the public records for divorce filings and mailed her a notice. This is why I do not include the addresses of my clients in the petition, to prevent this from happening.
I submitted a Petition pro se for my incapacitated son, I am legal guardian/POA/mother. The judge dismissed the Petition because I "am not a lawyer" although I submitted case law/GA Statute to show I was allowed to do so in exceptional cases such as ours. He did not read the Petition,... Read more »

Your private property may be in a city that makes discharging a firearm in the city limits illegal. Plus, in some or residential neighborhoods, covenants prevent such activities due to disruption of the neighbors due to loud noises.
The document which controls what you pay your attorney is known as the "Fee Agreement." You signed that document when you first hired your attorney. I suggest asking your attorney to forward that document to you. It will indicate what percentage you agreed to pay your attorney in the...Read more »
This is typically proven in court on direct and/or cross examination. This is the importance of good legal counsel. If you haven’t already, it is best to contact an attorney who can assist you with the specifics of your case and provide you with tailored representation.

What is the mistake? There are details to your case that we would need to know in order to provide you with guidance. You should consult with an attorney who can review the facts in detail and present you with the options and guidance. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
It’s been three months since my personal Injury lawyer filed my insurance claim and I haven’t heard anything yet. I have left several voice messages. Every time I speak to his secretary she gives me his voice mail, but no one never return
my call. Is this normal? What should I do?... Read more »
I suggest you set up a time for an in person visit with the attorney or the paralegal. Initially there may be a wait while they wait for records which can take some time, but they should be able to tell you what's going on.
Yes. Why? Because you are the only person who has (or had) the $901.70. Surely you do not expect any bank on this planet to eat money just because you accepted a fraudulent check? No; they are making you eat your own money.
This question doesn't make sense. An "error" in an order would not allow a party to move away and cut off contact with children. There is something else going on, and you should consult with an attorney who can review the court orders and give specific advice.
I was arrested years ago for driving without a license. When i showed up at court, they sent me home without ever seeing a judge. They didnt explain anything to me other than i would be cntacted within 6 months. I never recieved any mail or any further information regarding the case. A year later I... Read more »
I would encourage you to hire a lawyer who practices law in the jurisdiction that issued the ticket. If you have a fail to appear warrant you can order a copy of your driving history online with georgia dept of driver services.
If the warrant was validly issued you can be arrested. Whether you are guilty of the charge is a separate inquiry. For argument's sake the sale of marijuana presumes that the person possessed the marijuana at some point to make the sale.
