  • Is bail impossible if u don't have family members in the district you have been indicted in on drug trafficking

    How do u go about posting or making bail especially with no property in the federal system

    Eric’s Answer

    That is something your lawyer has to discuss with the AUSA or put together a package that will satisfy the Judge. The suretors do not necessarily have to be in the same District where the case is (unless the Judge requires it), they just need to be locatable if the defendant flees so that the Government can take steps to collect on the bond. In a drug case the law presumes that the defendant is a flight risk so the defendant needs to overcome that with a strong bail package.

    Eric’s Answer

    The "covered by" plea may not be sealed. I have seen similar notations on criminal history reports.

  • Can I make a claim for an injury if I bumped my head on poorly positioned scaffolding?

    While walking on 34th Street in NYC, I bumped my head on scaffolding which was set too low. I had a concussion and headache.

    Eric’s Answer

    A lawyer would want to see photos of the scaffolding to evaluate your possible case in addition to getting a better understanding of your injuries and how they may effect you in the future.

  • Can I still sue for medical male practice after 3 years

    I had a son I was pregnant and loss him do to the hospital

    Eric’s Answer

    Assuming you are an adult, the statute of limitations in NY is 2 1/2 years from the date of the malpractice, extended by any continuous treatment for the same condition. Without knowing more, It sounds like the statute of limitations has expired.

  • At work, management told myself and another coworker to take gloves off the shelf,

    I unload trucks, Management told myself and another coworker to take gloves off the shelf for work,leave the UPC Now 3 weeks later, Security tells us, thats theft. I just wanna know if I can get fired for listening to management

    Eric’s Answer

    Hopefully management will back you on this and get things straightened out. However, unless you have a contract, or union protection, you are an at-will employee and therefore can be fired for any reason or no reason so long as it is not an unconstitutional reason such as based on race, gender, religion, etc.

  • Can I sue if someone makes me sign an agreement that I wont?

    At the end of April 2015 the home I shared with my boyfriend burnt down(He owned morgage &homeowners ins in his name) he emptied his belongings and would not allow me to get the fire extinguishers and a 4 in flame resulted in a loss if over 2200 s...

    Eric’s Answer

    If you accept the money and sign the agreement you are likely bared from suing him for further damages. Normally, a person would be asked to sign a general release. If he uses a standard release that would protect him. If he drafts it himself it would depend on the wording but I suspect that a Judge would enforce it if it was clear that you were accepting the money in exchange for a promise not to sue. Perhaps you should consult with a lawyer who handles property damage cases before you doing anything else.

    I had previously filed a police report and sent a cease and desist letter to a person who was constantly harassing me. (Harassment was via text, emails, mails, numerous phone calls, screaming voicemail, and cyber bullying). Unfortunately police wa...

    Eric’s Answer

    It is a cease and desist letter, not an order. Judges issue orders. Your letter is legally meaningless.
