Sounds like the other driver is trying to set you up for a personal injury claim. If you plead guilty, it will act as an admission that can be used for purposes of establishing your liability (a.k.a. you were at fault). There is something called an 894 plea, but you will need a criminal attorney...View More
The Louisiana Bar Association has a program that you can choose to use if there is a fee dispute. There may he a provision in your contract that provides y'all will use that program if there is a fee dispute.
The federal judge set a court date in Jan. 22, and wants to move the case along. I just want to be done with it and settle for as much as you think we can get. I can either pay you byy the hour or one forth of what we get, your choice.
You will need to provide more details if you hope to find a lawyer to take your case. However, I think your proposal of an attorney taking your case on an hourly basis or 1/4 is unrealistic. Federal cases require a much higher standard of practice usually than state court due to strict deadlines...View More
I was brought to jail for a dui with no breathalyzer so they could take my blood. THC will be found in my blood. The officer also found heroin but never booked me with it and when my charges were read while being booked it didn’t show up. Can that state trooper come to my house and ask for me?... View More
Yes, you can be charged after an arrest. The District Attorney ultimately decides what criminal charges to pursue, but you can be charged after the fact. No, the cop is not an addict, and it would be foolish to raise that issue as part of your defense.
It depends on what you can negotiate with the D.A. or whether the D.A. has a "standard" plea deal. If you go to trial, the D.A. will probably seek the maximum amount of time provided by law. You should hire a local CRIMINAL attorney because they will have knowledge on how to deal with the D.A.

There was no question. It appears you were charged with child abandonment, but that I can't tell. You need to hire a lawyer. If you can't afford a lawyer, a public defender will be appointed to represent you. I am located in Shreveport if you would like to meet.
A person age 17 or older commits the crime of carnal knowledge of a juvenile by engaging in consensual oral, anal, or vaginal sex with a child between the ages of 13 and 17. If the defendant is two to four years older than the child, then the crime is a misdemeanor. Nobody can predict if you will...View More
Yes, but that does not mean automatically the drug test results can be used against you to deny you weekly wage benefits. That depends on the employer's WRITTEN policies and procedures. Hire a work comp attorney instead of trying to get free advice based on incomplete facts.
You need to pay for a review of the contract by an attorney and bring the entire lease. The 60 day notice provision, if accurately represented, is "valid" because parties may contract on any matter not prohibited by law. Your question is unclear on how you think you can recover 60 days...View More
I was never informed of this so said court date. Also isn’t there some kind of statue of limitations for them to bring me to court. It has been well over a year and a half and I haven’t been to any court dates because when I would call to check with the DA’s office to find out what was going... View More
