    Your employer has a right to be concerned about other employees, but that right has to be balanced with your right to privacy. I agree with Ms. Morcroft.

  • Lazy Lawyer... What happens if I don't fully pay?

    Elmer’s Answer

    Your attorney signed a contract with you. If you do not pay, he has the right to sue you to collect. If he did not do his job, you have a defense to payment. This becomes a civil issue at that point.

  • Who do i call to find out who has custody of my children?

    i had sole custody a few years ago but got into trouble and let the girls stay with their dad. I pay child support now. The girls are 13,14 and 15

    Elmer’s Answer

    If dad is the established father, he should have parental responsibility (custody). However, if the courts were never notified, or if paternity has never been established, you should still hold that role. You should consult an attorney to investigate the matter, check the court file, and discuss your options.

    Elmer’s Answer

    The state attorney has sole discretion on prosecuting cases. They try to listen to the victims, but they know that victims often become scared. If the victims are not present, and the police never found a weapon, it will be difficult to prove the case. The best advice is to get an attorney to assist in the attempt to dismiss the charges.

    Elmer’s Answer

    The short answer is yes. However, this kind of deal often goes bad. Your best bet is to hire an attorney to manage this situation. There are different types of immunity from prosecution that can be offered and many conditions usually attach. You may provide a bunch of information only to learn that the deal is off.. Consult a local attorney.

    Elmer’s Answer

    We need additional information to properly answer the question. Did his attorney fail to raise this issue. He may have the ability to attack it that way. The case would need to be reviewed by a lawyer to investigate his options.
