    We don't give out prices on this site. It would be unprofessional and many lawyers charge different amounts for what often appears to be the same type of services. However, you may find there are a lot of differences in how each lawyer handles a case such as yours. It is important to interview more than one lawyer to see who you have the best rapport with and who will give you the most reasonable price quote for such work. I suspect you can also simply phone around and speak with...

    Your situation falls into an odd area. Because the young man was under 19 when the crime was committed, he was likely entitled to be treated as a Youthful Offender in NY and that means all records of his charges were sealed and expunged. Unfortunately, he can still suffer punishment for his crime and while he may be an inmate, the state will not readily release his DIN easily to anyone but family members of his attorney. You may wish to contact both of them to see if they will advise you...

    I suggest you write the scuba business a letter demanding your money back due to a physical impairment, keep a copy and send the orignal by certified mail, return receipt requested. In the letter, give them a set period of time in which they can refund the money or advise them you will go to the authorities for assistance. If they don't respond by the date you gave them, then go to the Attorney General's office and lodge a complaint. Do the same with the Consumer Affairs Bureau, the Better...

    I agree. Terminate the lawyer and demand a full accounting of the time he claims he spent and if you're still not satisfied, file a Grievance and that committee will investigate and that will usually result in a settlement by the attorney if they did not really spend all the time they claim. On the other hand, be advised that the lawyer may have legitimately spent the time and could have served the documents as he claims without that other information and that could then justify his bill...

    You are absolutely correct. You need an employment attorney who will act on your behalf and seek compensation for being the butt of a cruel joke and misuse of surviellance videos against your wishes will likely be viewed against the employer. Make sure to get a copy of that video before it gets destroyed once they discover your intentions. Say nothing to anyone until you hire a lawyer who will pursue the case for you. Good luck.

    Yes, the Judgment has been signed and the case closed. You may now go and request a Certified copy and pay a fee for that privilege. Good luck. You're now divorced.

    Go to the Court Clerk's office on Chambers St. and ask for a copy of your NYSID or criminal record or you can try to check on line with any good service to check on criminal records, but that will cost you money.

    You should not have even been ticketed unless there was a legitimate basis for demanding to see your identification. As far as I know, there must be some basis for making such a demand and there is no requirement to show a photo identification to the police. If there is such a requirement, then we're already living in a Nazi state as far as I'm concerned and something has to be done about it. Consult immediately with an experienced criminal defense lawyer in your area and fight it...

  9. About to undergo a background check will it show up??

    No, it will not show up because you were not arrested or criminally charged. The stores are now imposing their own "civil fine" which is actually nothing of the sort. It is just their way of scaring people and doing their best to stop shoplifting. Hopefully it scared you enough that you'll never do that again, no matter how easy it appears at the time. Also, hopefully you get that corrections job and will make plenty of money and never feel the need to steal again. Good luck.

    I agree with Latigo. Take him to Small Claims Court. I don't like the idea of showing up and confronting him face to face, unless you're a lot bigger than him. That's a joke. Don't do it unless you can keep your cool and you have some belief he'll do the right thing and pay his portion of the rent. Good luck.
