    All attorneys, court appointed or not, are subject to ethical guidelines that if not followed, ae subject to review. You should file a complaint with the Board of Bar Overseers if you feel that your attorney has failed you or done something unethical, including the language from Attorney Sinclair's answer. If this had an effect on the outcome of your case, which I assume it did, you should seek alternate representation and maybe have your case reviewed. You could also file a complaint for legal...

    Generally speaking, the PIP coverage is around $10,000 or so. If you sustained serious injuries due to the negligence of the driver of the car that you were in or that of the other driver, you should consult a personal injury attorney experienced with such cases as soon as possible. You should also make sure you are seen by a doctor or an expert arranged by an attorney. Because you are seeking damages above and beyond the coverage of most auto insurance policies, you likely will need to pursue...

    You probably will not like this answer but the best thing for your parents to do is sit down with an experienced elder law/ estate planning attorney to discuss what options they have and what will work best for them. Medicaid or MassHealth generally has the right to be paid back for services rendered and may place liens on certain assets but there are ways to protect their assets as well. Have them consult an attorney to discuss in detail their options. Best of luck.

    I agree with the answers of my colleagues. You should privately consult an attorney, whether criminal defense or civil if you fear a wrongful death suit. I'm sorry for your loss and best of luck.

    No. You do not have to get a lawyer but you might want to to protect your interest in the estate. And no, you cannot go to jail for failing to respond to the paperwork but if you don't, you likely will have a default judgment entered against you meaning that whatever the person bringing the suit wins any claims against you. It would be wise to either respond to the complaint yourself or hire a probate attorney to assist you. Best of luck and I'm sorry for your loss.

    You should consult a family law attorney as soon as possible and I would not recommend signing anything that your girlfriend has sent you without having an attorney review the document first. If you are the biological father, you can file a petition with the Family and Probate Court seeking some sort of custody arrangement to see your daughter. If you haven't already done so, you would need to acknowledge that you were the father that also would subject you to child support payments, among...

    If your inlaws are unreceptive to your assistance and you suspect elder abuse you can file a complaint by calling the Elder Abuse Hotline, 800.922.2275 and an investigation should follow if what is going on constitutes elder abuse. It may be difficult if your inlaws are willing to support your step child but you can still call the hotline. If your inlaws are incapable of managing their own affairs, you may want to consult a elder law or family law attorney for further information or assistance...

    I'm sorry to hear about your mother and I hope she was not seriously injured. The TSA injury report may be an internal document used for its own investigation. If your mother decides to take action against the TSA or whomever was responsible, you should have her consult a personal injury attorney who will likely be able to obtain a copy of that report during discovery. Best of luck.

    I am sorry for your loss. You can hire a new attorney to handle your sister's estate. If the attorney is the executrix, you may have to appoint a new one after having her removed. If she is simply handling the estate, you can terminate her representation and she must give you your file if you are the personal representative or executrix or soon to be appointed as such. Best of luck.

    You should be able to either appeal the order or file a motion to reconsider or a motion for relief from order. Some of your options are very time sensitive and you would be well advised to obtain a family law attorney as soon as possible to assist you with this as it sounds like you did not get a fair shot at the hearing. If you cannot afford an attorney you may be able to sign up for the lawyer of the day at the probate and family court. Best of luck.
