David Edward Boyle's answer I would encourage you to hire a lawyer who practices law in the jurisdiction that issued the ticket. If you have a fail to appear warrant you can order a copy of your driving history online with georgia dept of driver services.
David Edward Boyle's answer If the warrant was validly issued you can be arrested. Whether you are guilty of the charge is a separate inquiry. For argument's sake the sale of marijuana presumes that the person possessed the marijuana at some point to make the sale.
Ellaretha Coleman's answer You need to consult with an attorney immediately if you have a dependency case pending. Allegations of abuse or neglect are not to be taken lightly, and as you know can result in your children being removed from the home.
Forrest Clinton Barbour's answer Could be. Need to know a little more information. Why were you stopped? Did officer claim to smell marijuana? There are other reasons to search besides search incident to arrest, and even search incident to arrest doesn't automatically allow a police officer into the car. Feel free to give me a call - 770.461.2025.
Regina Irene Edwards' answer In this case, a malpractice case is not your best option. While you should contact an experienced family law attorney in order to try to fix the case, you should try to get some fees back from the attorney with fee arbitration. Assuming the facts are as you state, you should be able to get some fees back from the attorney so you can hire another attorney to try to rectify the situation. However, if you have already had a Motion for Reconsideration fail, your only option is an appeal, and...
William Head's answer Possibly have a case. These types of cases must have overwhelming proof of refusal to act to protect your safety.
Contact this attorney, and ask him about the viability of this kind of case. Few lawyers will file these suits, due to sovereign immunity, which our Legislature passed, to keep state agencies from being sued.
William Head's answer The one fact, of your narrative, that sticks out, is that this was not your vehicle. If there was a legal basis for that pullover (e.g., the owner had an outstanding warrant, the tag was expired, no insurance on the vehicle, etc.) then the officer had the right to stop the vehicle. Once he or she saw that it was not the owner, that may not end their inquiry, is the vehicle was uninsured. That is a crime, to be driving without insurance, even if you were unaware of the lapse, by the real owner....
William Head's answer Your message gave no dates or critical details. I suggest that you contact an attorney whose firm knows all the rules and necessary FACTORS for a claim like yours to be able to survive summary judgment motions (basically, a dismissal of the civil charges, by the judge, for failure to state a viable claim, upon which relief can be granted).
You need an outsider from Thomas County, so call Ashleigh Merchant, at (404) 828-0969. Tell her that Mr. William C. Head sent you to her....
David Alan Wolf's answer Medical malpractice cases are quite complex. I recommend that you get your daughter assessed by an orthopedic specialists. If there are issues related to growth and maturity, you may see if an evaluation by and endocrinologist is in order. For an attorney to take on a medical malpractice cases, the attorney will typically look for situations in which the injuries or conditions are permanent in nature.
Paula J. Mcgill's answer If you complain about the harassment (follow your employee handbook on filing internal complaints) and nothing is done or you are retaliated against, certainly, move forward and file a charge with the EEOC.
Regina Irene Edwards' answer With very few exceptions, you can name your child whatever you like. There are plenty of names which are not identifiable by either gender - Jamie, Harper, Ashley, Jordan, etc. The name doesn't have to conform to a particular gender.
Peter Munsing's answer may be legal but I think you can ask your health insurance if they will offer payment under the other tax ID, then when you have them rejecting a documented offer you can tell them your company offered to pay, they refused to accept, you don't think you owe them in accordance with provider agreeement, and you will contact the health Department at the state level.
Peter Munsing's answer Churches can manage their own affairs. It is up to the church as it's rules dictate to decide--in some cases it's the congregation, in other's it's a bishop.There are no mandatory pension or other schemes for churches. You raise an interesting ADA question.
