Does he want to stir up a counterclaim? If he has collision, run it through that and let them be the bad guys. Note--if it's 4 lanes, and he was doing speed limit, should have picked up moving something or other out there, slowed down, may have had chance to avoid. I'd advise to let it go. So far...Read more »
Well, unless you were subjected to interrogation without benefit of counsel, or otherwise prejudiced, your only recourse MAY be a civil tort claim. Consult a criminal defense attorney on the criminal case, though.
This incident caused me to be home on short term disability. Immediately the landlord sent someone to do the porch, however he tore down the porch then died from a heroin overdose in July. To this date the insulation is exposed. I have not been able to pay my monthly rent due to only getting 60% of... Read more »
I got into a altercation with someone and picked up a misdemeanor assault charge and have to turn myself in. I have to get fingerprinting done for my new job (child care facility) and really can't figure out which step to take first. What will happen if I go to my fingerprinting first? And if I...

If you have to turn yourself in, that tells me you have an outstanding warrant. Better to turn yourself in with money in your pocket to post bond than wait to be picked up at an inconvenient time. Your work will find out no matter what.
My son is in the band at a local high school. During the summer they have band camp. He will make them march, in the heat, for hours with no breaks. If one of them makes a remark about the heat, he tells them, "It's not that bad." If they do take a break he berates them. I find this dangerous and... Read more »
It is most likely 10 years if she was ordered deported by an Immigration Judge while living in the USA. But I would consider talking with an immigration attorney because there may be a way to get her back sooner. Don't assume she has to wait 5 or 10 years because many times there are ways around...Read more »
And then try to persuade you that you don't have a case. The time is almost up to file so we contacted them again to see if they would at least do a letter for us to extend it. They say they can't because it would be a conflict of interest.
Find out why it's a conflict. If they had been representing the other party they should have told you so. If it's that they represent a potential witness, that is a little different--a conflict but they only have to tell you when they figure it out. However you need to find another attorney so...Read more »
The offenders insurance should give you a "prior authorization" though depending on your state they may not have to (depends on what state it happened in). If your car got totaled chances are you have an injury so I suggest you contact a member of the Delaware Trial Lawyers Assn--they give free...Read more »

I would not characterize your case or potential case as a slam dunk case even if you have surgery. Trip and fall cases and slip and fall cases can be quite challenging. These are among the most heavily contested types of cases that are handled by personal injury attorneys. It is good to hear...Read more »
Unless you get a release from her when you pay, yes she can. You are better off turning this over to your homeowner's or renter's insurance company to handle so they can pay the bills and make sure you are released from further responsibility after they pay her.
There was no injury by either party. the 911 dispatcher said there was no reason to send an officer for a report since the accident happened on private property. The other party admitted fault to my son immediately following the accident. they exchanged information and went on their way. Now the... Read more »
I am in the process of employment based green card application (EB2). I am engaged and was wondering which step of the process is the "deadline" by which I have to be married to get the GC for my husband (to be) too? (PERM? I140 or I485?)
My husband was a student with F1 visa and I came to USA as his dependent on F2 visa... His OPT ended in April 2015 and he applied for H1 visa... Got an RFE in July 2015 and then his H1 got approved in Oct 2015..!!!
Now our lawyer forgot to file my h4 during... Read more »
If you are in the business of buying homes and selling them, then you should be willing to have a full discussion with an attorney in Ohio about what you are asking. There should not be a time limit on this, in my opinion.
I know a minor who is 17, who less than 6 months ago, was caught with Vicodin in school. It was left at a misdemeanor and would be expunged when he was 18, he was allowed back in school. Recently, this person got in an accident which was a hit and run to a parked vehicle, he evaded police, and... Read more »
