    The short and blunt answer is that you should not do this without an attorney. The prosecutor is very unlikely to offer you a better deal without your public defender. Additionally, you don't want to take the case to trial on your own. If you are not a trained attorney you don't understand court room rules and procedures and will very likely lose hurt your case. If you are not satisfied with your public defender your only other option is shopping around for a private attorney. I highly...

    I'm pretty sure this is an internet troll. I was fooled at first. The dead giveaway is the lack of poor grammar. Someone who considered female circumcision acceptable would likely come from a very poor and backward part of the world where education was a very low priority.

    I'm a little confused by your question. Have you been convicted and are looking to appeal or are you looking to fight the charge? This is not a very serious charge. If you haven't been convicted yet you could be eligible for a conditional discharge. You need to call a defense attorney immediately.

    I agree with both these attorneys. I just want to add that you're right, it is the 21st century, which is why we don't allow women to be mutilated and tortured.

    You need to speak with a DUI attorney immediately. Even if you are able to get a reduction to reckless it will be difficult to have your CDL reinstated. A DUI attorney can examine your case and help you take the best course of action. Make sure that you speak with an attorney who has DUI experience. DUI's are complicated and have far reaching implications upon your license. You also have a limited time to contest your license suspension. The sooner you speak with someone the better.

    You will lose this argument in court and be found guilty of speeding. Your reasoning has zero basis in law. You need to either pay the fine or ask the solicitor what deal you can make. You should also note that if your cruise was set at 60, then you were speeding. The jury charges are likely to include the language that if the jury finds that you were going even one mile over the limit you were speeding.

    Even without your cooperation the state can move forwards. Their case may be hindered by the fact that you are a hostile witness, but they will probably not drop charges.

    You do not need "pre approval" from the at fault insurance company. They do not dictate what medical treatments you do or do not get. In these circumstances an attorney can help you find medical providers who are willing to work with you on a lien so that you don't have to pay upfront. Once you finish treatment your attorney will contact the at fault insurance company and inform them of your expenses. You will pay the medical provider out of whatever, if any, settlement you collect....

    Typically if an insurance company pays out on bodily injury claims they will require the other driver to sign a general liability release. It doesn't sound like the accident was very significant so I have trouble believing that there would have been bodily injury damages higher than the minimum amount of coverage required in Georgia ($25,000). It is possible that your insurance company only paid a property damage claim. I would need more facts to better answer this question. I highly suggest...

    While I can understand your frustration, I'm not sure that liability rests with Walmart. Also, I'm not actually sure what happened or what you are asking. I'd like to hear more about the man who gave the ride to Walmart. Also, what exactly did you purchase your daughter for her birthday? Children are difficult to shop for at that age. This is a very good question that you have obviously taken a lot of time to write out and think about. Unfortunately, you will need to include some more facts...
