You need to talk to a competent attorney about asset protection and exemption rights in whatever State you are going to live in. The exact Deed Grantee will be critical, and you need that lawyer to tell you what to do. Sometimes trusts are useful, but probably not here. The lawyer's...Read more »
I tied to qualify for public defender however, my pay would not allow it. I had my first appearance on the 29th. All the judge did was ask if I had an attorney, and since I did not he rescheduled my date to March. Why did it get rescheduled? Is he implying that I should get a lawyer?

My son is 18 and rolled his car after he fell asleep at the wheel. No impairment. His friend, a minor, was in the passenger seat and received very minor injuries. He was transported to the hospital (protocol for a minor) and released within hours.
My son initially pled not-guilty, and now... Read more »

My car was hit in Brighton CO by a truck from a trucking company in Milfor NE. Their Insurance will not pay for damages even though the driver was found guilty in a Brighton court. So do I file in Adams county or in Seward County?
It sounds like you were sued and served with papers? You really need to get your insurance involved. If you received suit papers and you don't have insurance you need to make sure you don't get a default by filing an Answer and entering your appearance "pro se." Check with the...Read more »

In terms of your urgency, the more information you are able to readily provide about the disposition of the case when you call prospective attorneys,...Read more »

She will doubtless say you puilled...Read more »
First question is was it for 4 or did the officer say "I clocked you at 15 over, I'll make it 4 so you don't get points?' If that was the case don't rock the boat--the judge will see someone who got a break being ungrateful--and penalize them.
