Your question is about setting aside a 2017 judgment in small claims court, because you just found out about it. "It" could mean the judgment or the SC case and the situation is different depending on which "it" you are speaking about. Assuming that the judgment was entered by...Read more »
The California Supreme Court does not hear all cases which are brought to it. The Court decides which cases it will hear, usually based on some criteria which involves state wide policy on issues of compelling importance.

In fact, the DA was allowing her husband to testify through his wife. They knew where the information originated, but allowed her to testify... Read more »
First, I am not a CA lawyer. But as I recall, the Supreme Court of CA is the state's highest appellate court. If that's correct, the only option available is to appeal to the US Supreme Court--by writ of certiorari in the first instance.
I've been pulled over multiple times since 2012 being told I'm on probation, I'm on search and seizure and then go to jail for new cases . Now finding out orbeing told by the public defender who called over to the courts who confirmed I've been off probation (this is at central... Read more »
You have not asked a question. This Q&A board is not a place where you can ask an attorney to work for you, and it would be inappropriate for anyone to respond to your post with an offer to work for you.
Sounds to me like your answer will have to come from the EDD. I know it is very...Read more »

My husband signed a paper saying that I was to get part of the settlement that his attorneys made him sign. And he already got paid his settlement I have tried to get ahold of the attorneys they will... Read more »
I would send the law firm a letter by certified mail (so you can prove they received it) saying both your lawyer and you have called the firm on multiple occasions, yet never received a response. Then say something like: this is your final notice that I want the settlement money owed to me and, if...Read more »
I was sued by my ex over a dog that we adopted while together but has lived with me 90% of the time since we separated. For the eight years since we separated, I would let him take the dog from time to time but never more than a week and usually just a few days. He’s lived in the same place since... Read more »

a lawyer would have to read the police report and not speculate.
you need to set up an appointment with a criminal lawyer in your area who would have to move to set aside the plea. That is not always easy. The judge goes through admonitions asking if that is...Read more »
She thinks I’m a bad influence because she made assumptions about me. I haven’t hung out with her daughter in over a year or even gone to their house in two. She thinks that her dad will let me hang out with her but her dad and step mom hate me to.
You said the fiduciary was court appointed. Did you get notice of the ex parte hearing? More facts would be needed to determine if you have any recourse. Seek counsel for a private consultation so that you can provide all the facts of your situation for a thorough evaluation.
Our Attorney did nothing but threaten and lie. He even kept fees for expert witnesses we didn't get. There is no previous case in history like this one. I've searched for 4 years. Not 1. Does there need to be a previous ? I'm trying hard to come up with Attorney fees but 1st... Read more »
Post conviction. Pre sentence. I fired the Attorney immediately after my son was convicted. Videos not shown. Exculpatory witnesses not interviewed. Evidence lost. The ADA ignored favorable evidence and only picked bad. A fake expert witness. A lying victim. All too much. Felony murder. The victim... Read more »
I feel your pain. The first thing is to know your time limitations. Motion for New Trial- 20 days; Notice of Appeal-60 days.

A California attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two days, and by Monday, you're looking at about a week to find a lawyer for an April 20th court date if you decide you want to go with one. You don't indicate what type of hearing it is, and many courts are...Read more »
May be untimely, depends on how the notice of judgment was served. Add 5 days for service by mail. Path of least resistance, bring it up at the appeal hearing by filing a motion to dismiss late appeal, the Judge should hear that first, and rule on it then go to the main case. Be prepared to...Read more »
