  • I am a habitual violator in the state of ga.Can I legally own a vehicle that is registered to me?

    Driving while license suspended or revoked,failure to maintain insurance

    William’s Answer

    Dear Sir or Madam, under Georgia's habitual violators laws, you may legally own a motor vehicle, but you may not legally operate a motor vehicle until and if your full driver's license is reinstated -or- you receive a probationer license from the Georgia Department of Driver Services. You should immediate contact the Georgia Department of Driver Services at http://www.dds.ga.gov/ or consult an experienced criminal defense and traffic law attorney in your local jurisdiction if you have any questions about your privilege to drive. Again, you may not legally operate a motor vehicle in the State of Georgia as a habitual violator until and if you reinstate your full driver's license or receive a probationary license from the Georgia Department of Driver Services. Good luck, Tom Kemp, KEMP LAW FIRM, L.L.C.

  • How can I have 2 shoplifting charges expunged from my record from 5 or 6 years ago?

    I was arrested for shoplifting 2 times and placed on probation

    William’s Answer

    Dear Sir or Madam, if you were convicted of a crime in Georgia, then you are probably not eligible for "expungement" of your criminal history. Please know that Georgia no longer has "expungement," but instead uses a process called "record restriction" whereupon the general public or an employer cannot view certain records on your criminal history. However, it would be extremely rare to have your "record restricted" from public access if you pled guilty, pled nolo, or were convicted after a trial for any criminal offense, even a misdemeanor offense. Please consult an experienced criminal defense attorney in your local jurisdiction if you believe you may have an opportunity for "record restriction" of your criminal history. Good luck, Tom Kemp, KEMP LAW FIRM, L.L.C.

    William’s Answer

    Dear Madam or Sir, you should immediately contact the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission ("EEOC") at http://www.eeoc.gov/contact/ if you believe that you were wrongly discriminated against by an employer or potential employer. You may also want to consult an experienced employment lawyer in your local area to represent you in any potential matter.

  • Do you know any Probono attorneys?

    Modify criminal charges.

    William’s Answer

    Dear Sir or Madam, you should immediately contact your local jurisdiction's "public defender" or "indigent defense" committee to secure an appointed (public) lawyer to represent you on your criminal charges, You should do this immediately so that your lawyer may best represent, defend, and advocate for you. You can look online for a link to your local public defender's office -or- call your local Clerk of Court and ask for your local public defender's name and telephone number. Best wishes, Tom Kemp, Attorney, KEMP LAW FIRM, L.L.C.

  • Which state should I obtain a lawyer in?

    My divorce was in Florida. My ex husband is in Florida. I am in Georgia. I need to obtain a lawyers to represent me n any communication with my ex as he is becoming too much to deal with. Should I obtain a lawyer here in Georgia or in Florida?

    William’s Answer

    Dear Madam, if your ex-husband is engaging in a repeated pattern of harassing & intimidating behavior, then you may have a civil claim against him for "stalking." You can petition a judge in your local Superior Court of Georgia to request a Temporary Protective Order ("TPO") against him. Your ex-husband will need to be "served" (provided with notice of any hearing) at his address in Florida and appear in court, in Georgia, to defend himself against your civil stalking complaint. If the judge finds that your ex-husband has engaged in stalking behavior against you, he or she can impose a 12-month protective order with certain conditions against your ex-husband. However, if you don't believe that your ex-husband's behavior rises to the severity of stalking, you may want to consult an experienced attorney, such as myself and others, to write to him about your concerns and insist, on your behalf, that he immediately cease & desist all bad behavior against you., Tom Kemp, Attorney, KEMP LAW FIRM, L.L.C.

    I recently was informed by IRS that my refund was mailed out and cashed without me knowing to an address where two other individuals were living what can I do other than wait and wait on IRS to investigate and give me my money back

    William’s Answer

    Dear Sir or Madam, if you believe that you were the victim of a crime, you should immediately contact your local police to report that you were the victim of identity theft and monetary theft. You should also speak with the IRS, again, and ask an agent what you need to do to report this crime to the appropriate Federal investigators.
