Q: On the interstate. Observed a crash take place ahead. Saw wrecked vehicle in ditch. Required to stop and render aid?

Answered on Aug 21, 2018
Peter Munsing's answer
In nearly every state the law only applies to drivers "involved in the accident." A passer by such as yourself need not stop. You can phone the police if you clearly saw it happen (as opposed to looking over once you hear the bang).

Q: I was involved in a wreck in which my car was totaled. Can I go after the other party for expenses on a new car?

Answered on May 4, 2018
Peter Munsing's answer
You can go after them for the value of your vehicle if it was for sale the minute before the wreck. You would get the sales tax. Plates you keep. There may be a transfer charge in your state so ask for that. You have a claim for your injuries. I suggest you contact a member of the Wyoming Assn for Justice--they give free consults.

Q: How to file an asylum we are having C1/D Visa

1 Answer | Asked in Immigration Law for Wyoming on
Answered on Apr 28, 2018
Carl Shusterman's answer
If you successfully make it past a border or entry point and into the U.S., you'll have more time to apply for asylum. In fact, you can take up to a year after entering the U.S. to start the process. (If that deadline has passed, talk to an attorney—exceptions are possible, and USCIS may show leniency when it comes to the deadline.)

Your first step in applying for asylum will be to fill out USCIS Form I-589 and mail it to USCIS together with other documents you'll be asked to provide....

Q: Would an vape juice company need to trademark each individual bottle or only the company logo and mascot?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Copyright, Intellectual Property and Trademark for Wyoming on
Answered on Jan 2, 2018
Benton R Patterson III's answer
It depends on how much protection you want for your brand. If you want to prevent other people from using each individual color for the specific juice, then you would need to trademark each bottle design. Although, doing so could be expensive to obtain and maintain. If you only want to prevent others from using a name or mascot, then it is sufficient to register only those aspects of your branding.

Answered on May 1, 2017

You can't shoot them (I'm assuming you are not in your car). If you did you need to ask that this be taken down by the website, avoid any questions on social media, and contact an attorney at once.

Q: I live in Utah but my kids live in Wyoming. Do I need a lawyer from Wyoming?

1 Answer | Asked in Family Law and Child Custody for Wyoming on
Answered on Apr 6, 2017
Joseph Torri's answer
More facts are required to provide a through analysis here. However, you should discuss the legal issues with a family lawyer in Wyoming and Utah. It is unclear whether a case has already been filed. If a case has not been filed, Wyoming will probably have jurisdiction, but consult with a local family lawyer to see if jurisdiction can be established in your area. There are just too many facts that need to be analyzed, and you would definitely benefit with a consultation from a lawyer in either...

Q: How do I file a complaint of conspiracy to get a county board member to quit on a board?

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law, Gov & Administrative Law, Government Contracts and Libel & Slander for Wyoming on
Answered on Apr 3, 2017
Robert Donald Gifford II's answer
You need to contact a law enforcement officer, or maybe even your state AG's Office to register a complaint. The squeaky wheel gets the attention, so if you are serious about it - then complain in writing (with documented evidence) to every agency you can (DA, AG, local law enforcement, etc.).

Q: Can the military ignore doctors notes?

1 Answer | Asked in Military Law for Wyoming on
Answered on Apr 3, 2017
Robert Donald Gifford II's answer
The ugly answer is "yes." Just like single-parent servicemembers have to have a childcare plan to take care of kids in the event of mobilization/deployment, the same concept applies here. The best advice is to work this through your chain of command and build support from the bottom up. Come up with a work plan - a way to possibly reschedule or do equivalent drill weekend work (RST). You could file a complaint with the IG or exercise your Commander's "open door policy," but your safer and...

Q: Do I need to get a lawyer for a MIP in Wy

1 Answer | Asked in Juvenile Law for Wyoming on
Answered on Jan 29, 2017
Tristan Kenyon Schultz's answer
The choice of a lawyer is a personal decision. A lawyer can navigate the court system and may be able to provide you with a reduced sentence. A lawyer may also know about various programs that can replace actual jail time and/or be listed on your record. That said, you can proceed without a lawyer. The DA is not likely to offer a radically different plea deal (if a plea deal is offered).

Every case and person is different so there is no best choice for all people. If you are on the...

Peter Munsing's answer
Take all reasonable steps to protect your identity and accounts. If they were defrauded it may or may not be carelessness on their account. You'll have to speak with a member of the Wyo. trial lawyers Assn who handles employment law, juggle the possibility you can get something vs staying on the job.

For starters be aware that if a bank or credit card pays on a forged signature if you notify them as soon as you get the statement it may be covered. bigger problem is someone opening up...

He can be charged with anything the prosecutor wants to charge. Prosecutors have virtually unlimited discretion. Based on what you have said, he definitely should get an attorney to represent him.

Q: What to plea

1 Answer | Asked in Criminal Law for Wyoming on
Answered on Sep 22, 2016
Paul Stanko's answer
If he doesn't know how to plead, he should probably plead not guilty. It is generally not wise to plead guilty at the arraignment. If he is not happy with his public defender, he should seek private counsel.
