    Phillip’s Answer

    Seems to me if you have hired an attorney then that attorney would be in the best position to answer your questions since you would have met with him or at least been interviewed by that attorney so the attorney has some knowledge about your side of the case..... can't imagine you hired a lawyer without actually communicating with that lawyer

  • I need need help with writing 10 day appeal letter for dui asap!

    Arrest was made nov 5 2015.

    Phillip’s Answer

    You need to hire an attorney to represent your interest in this matter. Don't expect any attorney to do it for free. There are many qualified attorneys on AVVO who would be willing to discuss with you their qualifications and experience in handling DUI matters so that you can make an informed decision on who to hire.

  • What happens if I get stopped with a suspended license

    My license is suspended

    Phillip’s Answer

    You go to jail and are charged with Driving on a Suspended License.... Best bet is not to drive while your license is suspension and to consult with an attorney as to how to reinstate your driving privileges

  • Do I need a lawyer to represent me for a misdemeanor shoplifting charge in Acworth, GA?

    I have no prior offenses, not even traffic related.

    Phillip’s Answer

    Yes.... Shoplifting is a crime of moral turpitude and a conviction on this type of charge can preclude from all types of employment opportunities in the future - such as a bank, financial institution, delivery companies such as FedEx and so on not to mention it prevent you from being able to be admitted to a college of your choice. I encourage you to speak with an attorney sooner rather than later and certainly before your first court appearance as most qualified criminal defense attorneys can properly advise you in this matter. You are welcome to contact me to discuss your particular situation. With regards,
