I brought my 2 girls ages 16, and 17 to a restaurant. My 17 yr old has severe, could be fatal allergies. She ordered a cowboy burger without cheese. We informed the waitress that she was severly allergic to cheese so please make sure they dont ...
Fortunately for you and your daughter, you have no case thanks to your quick thinking. I strongly urge you to contact the management of the restaurant and I would also contact the county board of health.
You only have a suit if you have both a cause and damages, you may have cause but thanks to you're being a great mom, you don't have damages.
I think you did well.
I hope your daughter learned a valuable lesson. I have food allergies too and if they screw up the order I order something completely different or I leave. In this case I would rate the restaurant on Zaget's board and other boards and let people know.

A young man was very intoxicated at a music venue inside of a casino in Nevada. The kid was toying with all of my friends and eventually toying with me. I tried to create a distance between me and the kid and he sucker punched me in the face, kn...
I think counsel above makes a few good points you should consider. OTOH I wouldn't necessarily see a Nevada Lawyer. I would look for a lawyer who is admitted in NV but practices in California. I would want a lawyer who has federal experience as well.
It may be hard to get a Nevada lawyer to take such a case against a casino, and further it may be tough to find a jury or a judge who will hold against a casino in state court. By virtue of your living in California, you have diversity of jurisdiction and if your injuries are above a certain monetary amount you will have the right to bring your case in California AND in a federal court where the judges are not elected but have lifetime appointment.

Well that is certainly a possibility. Worse yet you could be charged as an Adult and face jail.
You will get a lawyer appointed to your case and you must be completely honest with them. They will ask you questions such as
So what is going on that makes you take off with the family truck?
How you are doing in school.
Describe your relationship with both of your parents
Describe your relationship with your siblings
Do you have a boyfriend
Are you or have you used drugs? Alcohol? When did you start? When did you last have any??
Who was with you on these little joyrides?
Again scrupulous honesty is important. Do not be afraid to tell your lawyer anything in fact do not leave anything out. Your lawyer works FOR YOU, and you have absolute privilege (privacy) in your conversations with him/her (it must be you and him or her and any member of his/her staff. If someone else is present it blows the immunity). He will keep your secrets secret but he must know everything.
If you work with the lawyer you may avoid jail, or a girls home and you may even find your situation improves greatly as well.
I wish you well.See question
A friend and I were recently involved in a scuffle with another group of people. My friend was charged with assault and resisting arrest. Upon learning the police were notified, my friend activated the recorder on his cellphone and kept it in hi...
Do they have the right? No. Can you prove they did? Unlikely.
The better way to do these things is to call your house phone's recorder or to call a friend or to put a lock on your phone so it cannot be accessed without the code.
Your friend should seek an attorney anyway however it seems unlikely he will have a case as to the taping.See question
I work as an escort in Muncie, Indiana. Recently a friend of mine was arrested for prostitution. Her phone was taken from her during the arrest. The police posed as her and used it to contact all of her clients via text. When they arrived they wer...
Yes they can use her phone. What she (and all of you) ought to do is to have an attorney on call if you should get arrested. He should be called as soon as you are arrested and you need to demand that he be called. If you have a blackberry put a code on it. If you do not give the police the code, and they make X amount of attempts to get into it and fail, it will erase every number on the phone (you can put it back on through blackberry's backup service it keeps your address book in the cloud) I believe the IPhone works the same way using Apple's cloud service.
Her attorney should try to work a deal out for her for all her "work" in helping police nab the johns however they would likely claim that she "Consented" for them to use her phone.
This advice is actually good for anyone in any walk of life who has to keep secrets and keeps them on his mobile device.
You and all of your friends should also check out Sex Workers Outreach Project which can hook you up to sex worker friendly law firms and other services. I have linked to their current web site below.

Clearly you have been trying to accomplish this on your own and not with the help of a lawyer. I would go to the local or state bar association and I would hire the president or someone on the board with a reputation for being a top trial lawyer and politically active. I would ask them to become involved in protecting you. I think you will find that although this will cost you some money, the issue will clear up right away.
A lawyer can humanize a client, he can also deflect questions and better push other lawyers and judges to do their jobs better because he is watching. Obviously a well-heeled attorney with some clout does the job even better. He has put himself in a position to be
" the (wo)man to see" and his interest in the case immediately focuses other actors on the issues. He is a hard person to ignore.
Find that guy or gal in your neck of the woods and ask for his or her help and I think you will watch this go away. The issue isn't that there isn't law to protect you, it is that you cannot spur the actors you need to take action to use the law, to do their jobs. Your lawyer if he is a good one, can accomplish that for you.

Technically you could have bail imposed by the court for failing to come to court when you were supposed to come, however most judges will be glad you came and happy you are furthering your education and overjoyed if you paid in full right there and then. It doesn't matter anyway, if you fail to vacate the warrant, you will be arrested on the street probably at a very inconvenient time and then there will be all kinds of trouble. Better to handle it now.
Get there as soon as possible, and start the new year off with a clean slate.

I think that lawyers who do a good job in answering these kind of questions could argue it is pro bono work but I would doubt it would fulfill a requirement for a bar association or school's certificate. I think most of us like to do the stuff we do here because we like the site, we like helping others and it helps us to be able to "show our wares" to our fellow lawyers. I know I have picked a few lawyers for referrals because their answers were consistently good and well written.
I think most bar associations want a more formal program however out reach to the public through AVVO is a good way to inform non lawyers about the law and educate them about their potential to use the law to protect themselves or to obtain restitution when they are harmed.
Tell me, do YOU think it is pro bono "work"?See question
