    I agree with my colleagues but wanted to add that you should contact your credit card companies right away to report the cards stolen and have the cards suspended. it is important that you do this right away. Also, you may want to change your banking password, e-mail password, facebook password, etc. so that the thief can not access any of your personal information. Good luck.

    I agree with my colleagues. You need a lawyer from South Carolina, and unless you're asking for more than $75,000 this matter should be filed in state court. I do not know what the statute of limitations is in South Carolina but it could rapidly be approaching (if it has not already lapsed), so use the find lawyer tab on Avvo or Google South Carolina Personal Injury Attorney. Good luck.

    Your current matter is criminal and so your injuries have no bearing on the March 20th court date. You would have to commence a separate civil action and based on the facts described you may have a federal civil rights claim under Section 1983 of the Civil Rights Act. Contact an attorney from New Jersey right away - most offer a free consultation, and if they feel you have a valid case may be willing to take it on a contingency basis where their fees come out of any settlement or judgment you...

  4. When a NY attorney's status is "registered" versus "active", is he still able / allowed to practice law / represent clients?

    New York does not have an "active" category. The categories are "currently registered", "due to reregister within 30 days of birthday", "delinquent", "deceased", "suspended", "disbarred". The first two categories "currently registered", and "due to reregister" can practice law. I'm not sure about delinquent attorneys. Obviously the last three categories cannot represent clients. You can find out when fees were last paid by looking at the attorney lookup (https://iapps.courts.state.ny.us/...

    The best site that is free is Justicia (http://law.justia.com/) and you can find a lot of information there. I also suggest you search on google.com - you can find a lot of Court cases and legal information on Google. You can also search Google Scholar (http://scholar.google.com/) and put a checkmark in the "legal documents" box. Other than Google, a good source of information is Lexis Nexis, which is a website that is available to registered users only and costs a small fortune. Fortunately...

    It is almost impossible to reduce a charge after the fact. But, are you sure you got an E Felony as opposed to Interim Probation? Because Felony Probation is five years. Misdemeanor Probation is three years. Could it be that you plead to both a felony and a misdemeanor and then once you completed one year of felony probation your charges were reduced to a misdemeanor? You should call your lawyer to find out.

  7. If someone were charged with a DWI and Menacing 2nd degree, and the menacing was due to a false statement, which charge is bette

    It depends on whether it is Felony DWI or misdemeanor DWI. If it's the latter, and if the D.A. agreed to plead everything out with menacing 2nd (which seems unusual), then I might suggest pleading guilty to menacing as otherwise your insurance rates will go up, you'll have to pay a big fine, driver license suspension, etc. But, before doing anything you really should discuss this with a lawyer. Most offer free consultations.

    I occasionally take cases pro bono but only if it seems that a grave injustice has been committed. I'm sure many other lawyers feel the same way. Feel free to contact me for a free consultation, and I can see if I can take your case pro bono - no guarantees, and again, you'd have to convince me that a grave injustice has been committed.

    One of my colleagues at the office is very experienced in these and he can certainly help you - he goes to the Immigration Court (26 Fed. Plaza) three or four days a week. I would be happy to put you in touch with him.

    Yes, I deal with this situation on a regular basis. You need to register your foreign entity in New York. It is an easy and straightforward process which involves filing an Application for Authority pursuant to s. 802 of the LLC Law. Section 802 states in part: "a) Before doing business in this state, a foreign limited liability company shall apply for authority to do business in this state by submitting to the department of state..." As to the second part of your question, I'm not sure...
