  • Looking for pro bono or lawyers that help low income clients in criminal case

    being wrongly accused in a criminal case. Young black man never been in any trouble with the law. Have a public defender but still getting no help, getting no where with them. Searched out for private lawyer but can't afford them. Don't know what ...

    Elmer’s Answer

    The Public Defender staff in Bulloch County are fine lawyers. It is sometimes difficult to clearly communicate what your concerns are because of time constraints. I suggest you call and make an appointment with your lawyer and follow it up with a written confirmation. Start you own file and ask for copies of everything or copy them yourself at the clerks office. They work for you by listening, researching, negotiating and following your wishes regarding how the case goes forward. Be polite, follow their advice so far as it meets your requirements and if you do not what do do that do whatever it takes to find a lawyer who will. Do not expect to find one for free.

  • My nephew, niece was murdered in 2009 and he just got a letter from a bank, saying that the money in bank would go to state

    we want to know how we can get it so we can give their kids the money

    Elmer’s Answer

    Sounds like no one has filed any action upon her estate. The Probate Court is where that would begin and an order finalizing her assets ( money, etc.) would determine where it would go. If the amount warrants it, I wold get an estate lawyer.

  • Can I get a GA license while my GA DUI case is still pending? I'm military and have an out-of-state CA driver's license.

    GA seized my CA license and supposedly sent it to the Atlanta DDS. I have lived in GA for about a year for training. I will likely plead guilty to DUI Less Safe. Before I enter the plea, can I still get a GA license prior to the case disposition, ...

    Elmer’s Answer

    Sounds to me as though you have "submitted" to a blood test. More difficult for the state to prove and new case law may help you significantly. Sounds also like you want to continue your military career. I would check out www.teamdui.com for best DUI lawyers in your area. You need really good help now.

  • If one has 2 DUIs in GA 10 yrs ago, has reinstated license & clean record ever since, the law would have him forever damned?!

    said person has just earned his masters degree, is the father of 2 young children, AND happens to be my husband, but will never be able to support his family b/c he will be blacklisted for eternity for doing something stupid over a decade ago? Not...

    Elmer’s Answer

    Whoa!! Anyone smart enough to earn a Masters Degree is smart enough to figure out how to use it to get a decent job. Although, I would encourage him to translate it into some entrepreneurial endeavor of his own. Getting and keeping a super positive attitude is a necessity given the difficulties all of you face right now. Count your resources, be grateful for what you have already, set some achievable daily, weekly and monthly goals in areas outside of your usual "box". Buy and read uplifting books and turn the damned TV OFF! As far as I can tell these terrible laws were passed by your local state and federal congress under pressure from political actions groups like MADD and the NHTSA. Ask too whether your husband bit the bullet and hired the absolute best DUI specialist he could find or did he like many take students ten years ago take the cheapest way out, thinking, heck it won't matter down the road..... Like the Eagles wrote, " Get over it" and move on.

  • My house got broken into by the maintenance man from the trailer park I lived in?

    He took the key from the main office he was on the clock when it happened my video camera was found in the work van. He has now been found guilty can I sue the owner of the park?

    Elmer’s Answer

    Sure you can sue. Recovery is an issue you should discuss with your lawyer and not online. Begin to think about things like, improper supervision, failure to control access to the property of tenants, and there will bone other that a "litigation" lawyer will discuss with you. You should have had an opportunity to ask the court to require restitution from this thief.

    Find a good real estate litigation lawyer. The law is pretty clear on such issues. Start taking photos and keep a notebook. You might consider having some estimates of costs to remediate; french drains, etc.

  • Can i hide out on low level violation probation in georgia?

    Ok so if I'm on probation in georgia for traffic violations for a year can I just hide out until my probation is up? From what i understand since the georgia supreme court ruling saying that private probation companies can't toll probation beyond...

    Elmer’s Answer

    So, Let me make sure I understand all this. You have been convicted of a few minor traffic violations and the court has allowed you time to pay the fines bit by bit and have put you on probation to make sure you do. Now what you want to know is: Can I beat the system and spit in the judges eye for trusting you to do those few things. Looks to me if you could afford to move to NY, with the higher costs of living and travel you would be able to take care of this and in the process, learn a lesson, locate you integrity, not have to worry about looking over your shoulder and clear your mind to think better thoughts about the kind of future you would want to see ahead. But then, hey! I heard something a long time ago in law school: "One cannot true "break" the law. One can only break oneself upon it"
