    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...

    Typically the medical bills are sent at one time along with a demand package to the insurance company. However, medical bills are only one part of this demand package. You also have a potential claim for lost wages, out of pocket expenses, and pain and suffering. You need to understand that the insurance company's primary concern is saving money. They will try to undervalue your case if you do not properly prepare and document your demand package. I highly suggest you consult with an...

    Slip and fall litigation can be very difficult. A lot of times the case will hinge on evidence that the building owners have in their possession. The fact that they are already willing to settle could be an indication that there are facts in your favor they are aware of. I highly recommend speaking with an attorney so you can ensure evidence they have is preserved. It never hurts to at least speak with an attorney, even if you end up not hiring one and accepting their offer.

    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.

    You need to speak with an attorney so they can evaluate all the facts. You have a potential personal injury suit against the other driver and a traffic case because of the suspended license. It's imperative you speak with an attorney before you go court. Without all the facts it's impossible to evaluate.

    You need to contact your insurance company immediately. If they settled your case within your policy limits they probably had the other side sign a general liability release. However, there is a possibility that the other driver demanded more than your policy limits and only agreed to a limited liability release. If that is the case there is a chance you could still be liable for any damages over your policy limits. It is difficult to actually assess the situation without more information. I...

    I am going to assume that you didn't hire an attorney in the beginning when the lawsuit was first initiated. I highly suggest you hire one now. You have to met very specific and exact circumstances to claim that the default judgment should be set aside and the case re-opened. I have spoken with many individuals in your situation and can assure you that you are taking a great risk in not consulting with an attorney.

    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.

    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.
