    I believe that you need counsel. You need to discuss this with your attorney and if you do not have one, you need to retain one.

    Michael’s Answer

    Your attorney was likely in the best position to make the determination whether to accept this or not. I am uncertain what occurred that made you decide to look into getting a new attorney. As a side note, the injuries that you have suffered can sometimes be difficult to prove. This good be part of the reason the offer is not higher.

    Michael’s Answer

    This is a family law question. I advise going to the "Find a Lawyer" option and look for a family law attorney in your area. Speak with one and determine how to proceed.

    I do not see anything that you did wrong. At this point, there is no way for them to determine whether you even knew it was them nocking as opposed to him. I would not even think twice about this situation, unless you currently fear for your safety due to him.

  • Can you drive legally in England with a restricted Florida Drivers license? He is planning a Christmas trip to England.

    my nephew just was restricted to work only driving....planning on driving a UK citizens car in UK.

    Michael’s Answer

    This would need to be addressed by a solicitor in the UK. I see the biggest issue being the inability to get a rental car to be insured. However, it is unlikely anyone on this site will be able to know how this would be viewed in the UK.

    Michael’s Answer

    I would advise speaking with an attorney immediately. It is unclear when this plea took place and that may cause an issue. If you had an attorney, he or she should have alerted you of the collateral consequence of a license suspension. If you opted not to have counsel, you can now see why resolving a matter without an attorney is so risky.

  • I have 3 DUI convictions in Westmoreland County in 10 years. Can I get a concealed carry license for a gun?

    1 ard, 2 guilty pleas,no incarceration

    Michael’s Answer

    The apparent alcohol problem will likely cause an issue. Regardless of whether you see it as a problem, it will likely be viewed as one when you apply. This can be grounds for denying the license.

    Michael’s Answer

    Intoxication is typically not a defense, though involuntary intoxication may be in some circumstances. The difficult issue is trying to prove that it was in your system and that is was there involuntarily.

    1st offense, 18 yrs old, female, 1 other defendant, 2 more pending, currently in jail, charged but not arraigned?, what can we expect?

    Michael’s Answer

    You will not an attorney. Clearly, these are serious charges. There is a great deal of information that is needed. I believe any attorney would have a great deal more of questions than answers at this stage, since it is so early on in the process.

    Michael’s Answer

    Proceeding on your own is very dangerous and risky undertaking. You should contact an attorney experienced in these matters.
