My X bringing contempt charges for incurring debt on credit cards. It was mutual and nothing was... Read more »
This law group was not her or her husband's attorney. They were fishing for work. She did not know they were getting a divorce and had not even been served yet. This law group had her case number and name of the judge. Is this not legal to solicit work like that?
This is legal. Solicitation by mail is allowed per the State Bar rules. They searched the public records for divorce filings and mailed her a notice. This is why I do not include the addresses of my clients in the petition, to prevent this from happening.
I submitted a Petition pro se for my incapacitated son, I am legal guardian/POA/mother. The judge dismissed the Petition because I "am not a lawyer" although I submitted case law/GA Statute to show I was allowed to do so in exceptional cases such as ours. He did not read the Petition,... Read more »

Your private property may be in a city that makes discharging a firearm in the city limits illegal. Plus, in some or residential neighborhoods, covenants prevent such activities due to disruption of the neighbors due to loud noises.
The document which controls what you pay your attorney is known as the "Fee Agreement." You signed that document when you first hired your attorney. I suggest asking your attorney to forward that document to you. It will indicate what percentage you agreed to pay your attorney in the...Read more »
This is typically proven in court on direct and/or cross examination. This is the importance of good legal counsel. If you haven’t already, it is best to contact an attorney who can assist you with the specifics of your case and provide you with tailored representation.

What is the mistake? There are details to your case that we would need to know in order to provide you with guidance. You should consult with an attorney who can review the facts in detail and present you with the options and guidance. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
It’s been three months since my personal Injury lawyer filed my insurance claim and I haven’t heard anything yet. I have left several voice messages. Every time I speak to his secretary she gives me his voice mail, but no one never return

I suggest you set up a time for an in person visit with the attorney or the paralegal. Initially there may be a wait while they wait for records which can take some time, but they should be able to tell you what's going on.
Yes. Why? Because you are the only person who has (or had) the $901.70. Surely you do not expect any bank on this planet to eat money just because you accepted a fraudulent check? No; they are making you eat your own money.
This question doesn't make sense. An "error" in an order would not allow a party to move away and cut off contact with children. There is something else going on, and you should consult with an attorney who can review the court orders and give specific advice.
I was arrested years ago for driving without a license. When i showed up at court, they sent me home without ever seeing a judge. They didnt explain anything to me other than i would be cntacted within 6 months. I never recieved any mail or any further information regarding the case. A year later I... Read more »
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.
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.
This CPS case is malicious i so many ways and beyond crazy. I need some legal assistance and they have presented me with papers to go to court in 2 days to possibly take custody over my kids over lies and malicious intent to prosecute under false pretense as well as having their lawyer present his...

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.
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...Read more »

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...Read more »
My personal injury attorney gave me check for approximately $200 from the $10,000 insurance settlement check He did not tell me before filing the law suit in court, that I would receive less than $500 for my injuries, pain, and suffering.

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...Read more »
