  • When given a traffic citation can i pay the fine on line or do i have to appear for the court date?

    failure to maintain lane

    Philip’s Answer

    Did the citation come as the result of a wreck with another driver? If so, speak with a respected attorney in your area before you do anything. If not, it might still be a good idea to speak with an attorney experienced in helping people with traffic citations to obtain advice about the possible effect paying a fine could have on your auto insurance, etc. Such attorney might be able to help you, or you might well conclude that you then prefer to handle it on your own and face the consequences, if any, of paying the fine without putting up a defense to the citation. Finally, there is a website in Georgia that will allow you to pay fines online. Find out from the Court at issue if they allow payment in that fashion, require an appearance or what exactly. Good luck to you.

  • Do I need an attorney for my underage son after he was involved in an auto accident?

    My underage son was involved in an auto accident but has never had an operator's license. We live in KY, and I'm positive that the actual "wreck" was not my son's fault. The other driver's insurance company has contacted me but I don't know what t...

    Philip’s Answer

    If your son was driving underage and without a license, regardless of who caused the wreck, you're looking at likely problems. Speak with a respected local attorney immediately and take whatever steps are appropriate in your state to protect not only your OWN rights but those of your son as well. In Georgia, for example, parents of young drivers can be found liable for the negligence of their children in certain factual situations. Good luck to you.

    Philip’s Answer

    Why don't you try going to see another doctor immediately for another opinion on what might be going on with you physically? Do not wait. As for an attorney, contact one here in Macon if you do not have one in Warner Robins with whom you are comfortable. Try calling Tracey Dellacona. Her number would be available in the phone book or through information. She and/or other medical malpractice attorneys can evaluate your situation and guide you through the legal process, if you have a claim. Good luck to you but make sure you find out what is happening to you physically!

    Philip’s Answer

    I see that no one has responded yet to your question. I don't practice in this area of the law, so let me suggest you contact an attorney in the Lawrenceville area to find out. You should be able to find a good general practice attorney in your local yellow pages under attorneys or perhaps online. I'm sorry I can't help you.

  • Discrepancy between the actual warranty and the stated warranty in the contract

    The seller verbally and in the contract stated that “Manufacturer Guarantees 25% Savings on Heating and Cooling Bills”. However, after contacting the manufacturer I found out that the “Manufacturer Guarantees 25% Savings on Heating and Cooling Bi...

    Since no one else has answered...

    This is outside my area of practice, but you ask an excellent question. Let me suggest that you do a bit of online research for a lawyer in your area, including Jonesboro and Atlanta, with experience in contract law, warranties, that kind of thing and simply call and ask. You certainly don't want to stop upholding your end of this deal unless you know you can legally.

    Good luck to you.

    Philip’s Answer

    I do not practice in this area and do not know the answer. I suspect you need to file a separate petition for the name change, but you need to contact an attorney who works in this area of the law and find out for sure from him or her.

    Good luck to you.
