    If title passed, you should not be held vicariously liable for crimes involving the operation of the vehicle. If you are honest with law enforcement, won't commit a crime of falsification. Of coirse, if you are a suspect in any manner you need not make any statements to law enforcement. You may need to declare the income to avoid Irs consequences, speak to an accountant

    Stewart’s Answer

    Your attorney can certainly try to have payment of those bills deferred until after the resolution of the lawsuit. Moreover, your attorney can try to settle those claims for less than the amount due. Speak with him or her about this

    Stewart’s Answer

    You have constitutional, statutory, contractual, and common law rights to retain an attorney to defend an eviction. This would be a civil law matter but not necessarily a civil right. If there is discrimination, and it is legally protected, you have also have a "civil rights" claim

    Stewart’s Answer

    These types of disputes can be document intensive. You might want to schedule an appointment with a local consumer rights attorney (or even foreclosure attorney to the extend that they are familiar with mortgage papers)

  • My car was stolen and involved in an accident by the thief. Will I be personally liable for any injuries?

    I have a police report that dropped the claim from the insurance company but received a letter from an attorney that they have filed for personal injury. Will the police report clear me of this?

    Stewart’s Answer

    Contact your auto insurance carrier immediately, they will provide you with an attorney. If you did not have coverage, independently hire a defense attorney in civil law, the police report does not speak for itself, in fact it is likely inadmissible. Moreover, you will need more than a stolen vehicle report to exonerate you. You must demonstrate independently that you were not the operator of the vehicle

  • Do I need a civil lawyer?

    My grandmother did her finger prints and it came up deceased. Basically the Hawaii government is covering up her identity because she is very much alive.

    Stewart’s Answer

    You should direct this to a licensed Hawaii attorney. Incorrectly registering a death could impact social security and other benefits so it should definitely be explored

    I have told the truth from the begining just worried about the machine reading incorrectly. I know the machine is accurate 80 - 90 percent. But I always worry about a machine determining my future.

    Stewart’s Answer

    If this is in relation to a criminal trual, you should really retain an attorney before speaking with law enforcement. In many cases, it is not advisable to voluntarily participate in a polygraph test bit speak first with an attorney

    Stewart’s Answer

    You should speak with a new jersey criminal attorney (there are many in philadelphia who are licensed in nj). If you are questioning the p reclusive of evidence in relation to a plea bargain, your appeal rights are limited and you must act extremely quickly to appeal. With respect to any slander or civil rights aspects, the record would need to be reviewed to see if there is any bias or false information that has been disseminated. Meet promptly with a licensed new jersey attorney
