You need an attorney. Based on your own description - they don't need to lie. Even if everything they said in their Motion for Emergency Custody is lies and everything you have said here is true - even with an attorney, your odds of winning are likely not good but without an attorney, they are...Read more »
It's difficult to say based on these brief facts. You could contact a North Carolina attorney, and if they felt there was a possibility of demonstrating causality between the failure to diagnose and the symptoms you describe, they could request the file and review the records with a medical...Read more »

Raise money for her to hire an attorney. Do a fundraiser, post on GoFundMe, try Facebook donations, but trying to find a pro bono attorney is pretty much a non-starter. But you might be able to convince an attorney to take it on a flat fee of 2500 to 5000. Practicing law is an extremely...Read more »

Grandfather and girlfriend bought property together and they both lived in house as man and wife. The deed does not say tenants in common nor joint tenants in common. What will happen when one of them passes. Grandfather did a will giving the house to his children but the girlfriend did not sign... Read more »
Unmarried co-owners are presumed to own as tenants in common in equal shares, unless the deed states otherwise. Accordingly, when your grandfather dies, and assuming the will is valid and is as you stated, his children will own 50% of the house along with the girlfriend as to the other 50%.
My husband is a illegal immigrant and he was convicted of Cocaine and after hiring a criminal lawyer his final outcome was that he plead guilty to Drug Paraphernalia but now its affecting his immigration but the criminal lawyer that we hired he did not explain to my husband that if he plead guilty...

I'm going to assume the paraphernalia charge was related to cocaine. ANY GUILTY PLEA related to ANY controlled substance, OTHER THAN a small amount of marijuana, will most likely mean your husband will be DEPORTED.
To answer your question: You need to speak to another criminal defense...Read more »

Mother was sexually involved with 2 men, not married to either, but lives with Man A. A prenatal DNA test was done and the results state Man B is the father. Mother states that she is moving forward as if the baby belongs to Man A. Can she refuse to allow a second DNA test with Man B upon the birth... Read more »
Yes, she can refuse and then man B can get the Court to force her to comply. Of course, unless man B plans to try and obtain custody of the child, all man B is really doing is setting himself up for 18 potential years of paying child support.
I was in Akumal, Mexico 2 weeks ago and signed up for a timeshare. I got a great deal and it's not that I can't afford it but after thinking about everything for 2 weeks I'd rather do something else with my money. They mentioned something about not being able to cancel it but there has to be... Read more »
Timeshares in Mexico give you a 50-day rescission period, so you're likely too late to use that route. You may still be able to get out of the contract, but you no longer have the easiest route to a refund/cancellation. When I've helped clients in similar situations, some have mentioned facts that...Read more »

On the ticket he put down 72 in a 55 which is false. When I pulled over it was in front of a speed limit sign stating 65. What... Read more »
