    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

    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

    Stewart’s Answer

    Without knowing the gravity of the Connecticut charges nor the terms of any probation, pennsylvania courts will only factor the charges in (as opposed to stripping him of custody rights) Of course, if your son was the victim or is an danger of being harmed this could be different.
