Your question might be beyond the scope of this Q & A forum - that could be why it remained open for three weeks. I'm sorry for your difficult position with the loss of the license. This is a very narrow area of law; there are attorneys out there who handle commercial fishing license...View More
If defendant is denied his request for a mistrial and is subsequently convicted, only to have the conviction reversed by the Appellate Court, which finds defendant was denied his constitutional right to a trial before an impartial jury, can the defendant then claim damages, and file suit against...

Possibly. You need to get in your tort claim notice within 180 days of the appellate ruling that the conviction was reversed to preserve your claim. The case would need a full review with details to determine if there is a case. If the 180 days passes, your state law claims will be barred due...View More
I have a congenital heart condition which has required 2 surgeries already, a malformed hand from a birth defect, a knee which the doctor says will need surgery to fix and rebuild (I walk with a cane), and several diagnosed mental health conditions. As far as I can tell, the disability board only... View More
The majority of people are denied at the first two stages of the process so don’t let that discourage you. When you file the appeal make sure you give detailed information about all of your medical conditions and list all of your treatment providers. While a note from your doctor saying you are...View More
An Oregon attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter nationwide, it is possible, but less likely if the matter involved something requiring personal service (as opposed to service by mail, leaving with a person of suitable age, etc., or other...View More
Without giving away too much information: I was positioned a parking lot positioned east headed south back towards my hometown. I was making a left turn as the collision happened. We got tboned by a car in the passing lane and the blame was unfairly put on me. I received a citation for careless... View More
I am so sorry to hear that you were involved in an automobile accident. You mentioned, "we", so I hope everyone is alright. It is even worse when you get blamed and cited for an accident. First, I can understand the frustration. You must set aside your feeling of being "wronged"...View More

I am not clear what you mean by having an "eviction notice" to be out on the 12th. Have you already gone to court and lost, with this Notice being from the court? Or is this the date on the termination of tenancy notice from your landlord? Most courts will not accept filings by fax...View More
Only an Oregon attorney should advise here, but your question remains open for four weeks. Until you are able to obtain meaningful, state-specific guidance from a local attorney, as a GENERAL matter in ANY jurisdiction, the opposing attorney and clerk/judge (depending on court procedure) should...View More
I've been told that an eviction judgement can be stayed during the appeals process. How do I go about requesting the stay? I'm mainly asking because I've also been told that the eviction is not stayed during the appeals process.
I will need to file the appeal first thing... View More
You file the notice of appeal, and the required appeal documents and serve the landlord and the trial court with copies. Your first move should be to review it all with a local landlord-tenant attorney who does appellate work.
I was a minor when he passed and he was not legally married to my mother, but did sign my birth certificate declaring him as my father. My mom told me that he did have life insurance and that I was on it as his beneficiary. I have no idea why I wasn't contacted in regards to this policy, or... View More
It's possible that you have some rights in regards to your father's estate but I don't have enough facts to know for sure. If he died without a Will then you are one of his intestate heirs. However, this is only helpful if he owned assets that needed to go through probate (assets...View More
You need to start calling around for attorney's ASAP, as attorney's here cannot contact you (please don't contact me, I can't help you). Use the find a lawyer link above and find someone who does landlord/tenant or perhaps trusts and estates.
I'm unaware of it. The practice should have asked. He can file a complaint with the licensing board but I dont see anything. However he should contact a member of the State of Washington Trial Lawyers Assn/Assn for Justice--they give free consults.
Her father has not allowed me to tal to her for the last 2 days. He took away her phone I bought because she sent me text begging me to come and get her and take her home with me. Also sent me messages saying she is nroken hearted without me. She has only lived with me. Never only with her father.... View More
Without knowing why the judgment was modified in the first place, an attorney isn't really going to be able to answer your question. What I would focus on is helping your daughter transition to living with her father if that is what the court ordered for now, and file to get a parenting plan...View More
