    The cheapest option is cheap for a reason, that attorney won't be able to dedicate much time to your case. That said, it doesn't mean that someone charging $4,500.00 will do a much better job than someone in the $2,500.00 range. You should focus on finding an attorney you are comfortable with. There are many attorneys out there charging in the $2,500.00 range who will be able to do a good job for you. Clifton is a pretty tough when it comes to DUI's. Best of luck!

    You should talk to a personal injury attorney in your area, he/she would be able to tell you if it is worth it to pursue the lawsuit. The attorneys usually take these cases on contingency basis and you would not have to pay attorney fees if you lose the case. You are correct, generally these type of cases take 2 or more years to resolve. However it would not be much stress to you as your attorney would be handling all the work. You may have to attend a deposition and an arbitration unless...

    You are correct, it is not too late to file a case. You have 2 years from the date of the accident. If several lawyers turned you down, it is likely that the case either has liability problems or you injuries were not significant enough to qualify for an award. Did you suffer any permanent injuries? Has this changed your life in any way? if it was a minor puncture wound and you were out of the hospital the same day and had no further treatment, it is likely that the case is not worth enough for...

    you have a good chance of getting a CD based on what you stated. It always helps if you have a good attorney convince the prosecutor that you should in fact get a CD. many attorneys offer free in person or phone consultations. Talk to a couple of lawyers to get a feel for what is involved here.

    based on what you are describing, you would be filing a chapter 7 bankruptcy. you should be aware that child support and student loans cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. If you child's mother files a motion to increase support, you should consult a family law attorney to deal with that issue. If you have any further questions about bankruptcy or child support, you can reach my office at 551-427-4428

    you or your attorney should contact the court to restart the community service. It is likely that the place where you had to do community service has reported that you have failed to show up and referred it back to court. It is likely that there may be an arrest warrant out for you for failure to comply with court imposed penalties. you should consult an attorney to have your case resolved

    Yes you can fight this in court. You would need to hire an attorney as soon as possible to request the video and audio recordings as well as the police report if any. You certainly don't want to have a 5 point ticket on your license. An attorney would be able to reduce or eliminate the points

    That is correct, you should seek medical attention right away not only for health reasons but to make sure that your injury is documented. After that you should consult with an attorney regarding filing a lawsuit against Walgreens. Sounds like you have a pretty good case for negligence since a store employee noticed that other people fell there and did nothing about it
