My truck was stolen and reported and the guy caught and arrested after crashing my truck.
As I read ARS-28-3512C I'm not responsible for the tow, storage charges, etc. The driver is responsible. Additionally, they can't refuse to release my truck for non payment by the responsible... View More

Here are a few suggestions on how to get law...View More
If you, as the defendant, are unable to reach your attorney, you should document all attempts you've made to contact them. It's important to act promptly by notifying the court of your efforts and the lack of response from your attorney. You may do this by filing a motion with the court...View More
I'm 3 days from my IPTC and despite the judges order that my attorney and I meet no later than 3 weeks after my last court date to discuss the case, I still cannot get my attorney to talk to me.what should I do?
Keep on trying to contact your attorney, try by phone and email. To put your mind at ease, your IPTC is an informal non-appearance hearing so no real stress that your attorney not contacting you, for now, for this hearing your attorney not contacting you isn't going to effect the outcome of...View More
In Arizona, the laws governing payment to contractors for services and materials, especially for paving and concrete contractors working on HOA streets, primarily fall under the Arizona Revised Statutes (ARS) Title 33, which pertains to property law and homeowners associations.

It is not illegal. We have free speech in this country. That said, while prison guards have certain leeway in how they interact with inmates, they are still bound by professional standards and codes of conduct. Labeling an inmate as a "snitch" can pose serious safety risks for the inmate,...View More
In Arizona, felons are generally prohibited from possessing firearms, including flare guns, if their felony conviction has not been set aside or their civil rights restored.

This has been bothering me more lately than usual as I am now homeless and have to feed myself and my dog with no money. I just cannot see how it is a legitimate per view of government to, in essence, require an individual to have the monetary capacity to feed themselves which is a basic human... View More
The requirement for a license to hunt or fish is based on the principle of conservation and management of wildlife resources. Hunting and fishing licenses help fund wildlife management and conservation efforts, such as habitat restoration, research, and education. Without these funds, it would be...View More
It's a holiday weekend and myself and the pharmacy have both been very unsuccessful with obtaining a new prescription from my physician for the last few days. My current insulin prescription has zero refills remaining and today I asked the pharmacy for an emergency insulin refill and they... View More
In Arizona, Kevin's Law allows pharmacists to provide emergency refills of non-controlled medications for up to a 90-day supply, under certain conditions, when a doctor's authorization is not immediately available. This law aims to prevent lapses in critical medication, like insulin, due...View More
I was pulled over for speeding and the officer was asking me about my recent arrest and I was unaware of this arrest. He informed me I had been arrested a week prior and charged with fraudulent schemes and taking identity of another. I was not present for this arrest and had no knowledge of this... View More
One possibility is that the Court may have issued a summons and after you failed to appear at your court date, an arrest warrant issued. It could be that you never were aware of the summons and it was sent to a bad address. You should consult a criminal defense lawyer to go in greater detail and...View More
Edit- I do not know if I was actually under investigation or not, obviously the matter was dismissed because I never heard anything from cps. The kids don’t live with me, and I don’t use substances. CPS told my sister that my ex made the report and disclosed the names of my kids.
Yes, if the caseworker lied and told your step sister you are under investigation for substance abuse and you are not in fact under investigation for substance abuse you may have a valid claim for libel against the caseworker individually
I initially was arrested and released on a charge went through the whole court hearings go to sign my plea and the fill in Procecuter says to continue there's something more. So we continue and my lawyer says oh mix up with codefendants case # so scratch that and will continue for next hearing... View More
Unfortunately this is standard procedure (at least in Mohave County where I practice, must be the same in Maricopa). The prosecutors can avoid having to prove their case before the judge and can just feed a bunch of nonsense to a grand jury and get an indictment. It's lazy and it SHOULD be...View More
This seems so crazy to me but I'm actually asking these questions on behalf of my 60 year old significant other who was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1960. His mother married an officer in the US military who was stationed somewhere over on that side of the world back then. They married.... View More

If your husband and a co-defendant are both being represented by the public defenders office, THAT is a problem. The PD cannot merely assign two separate attorneys to co-defendants. The court must appoint conflict counsel to one of the defendants from outside the PD's office.
A few years ago I left a comment in the comment section of a YouTube video. This video wasn't mine, but essentially dismissed the legitimacy of depression and similar mental illnesses. I said some pretty unenlightened things about depressed people in my comment (e.g. that they're... View More
A) The statute of limitations (law setting a deadline by which charges must be filed or a claim made) has likely run on this event. B) Opinion is almost always protected speech unless it is inflammatory, contains untruths, or is damaging to a person's professional reputation. C) It is...View More
They eliminated suspended license as justification for impounding a vehicle but a REVOKED license will still get the vehicle impounded.
