    Call a local personal injury lawyer. Insurance adjusters are hired to save their company money. More likely than not they will not pay you for the engagement ring.

    Public defenders are lawyers and can certainly represent you. The issue with them is the fact that they have many more cases than a private lawyer. If you want service and a lawyer to spend time with you and have the adequate time tonprepare your case you should hire a private lawyer. The question for you is how much you value your future.

    We have handled many cases like yours that ended up with probation instead of prison. Furthermore in many cases if there is no evidence and the victim wants to drop the case, the charges get dropped. On the other hand the charges are serious and you should seek experienced local counsel ASAP.

    I do not want to sound negative but unfortunately your boyfriend has really screwed up. He had a great opportunity to get the charge dropped, expunged and to have a second chance. He is now facing the possibility of going to prison especially if the dwelling was occupied and the government can prove it. I hope he has family that can assit you and him and retain private counsel to examine all the cases, look to see if there are any defenses or mitigating factors to present to the judge. I am...

  5. Is the same judge thats puts a person on probation, the same judge that terminates it?

    In most cases, but it depends on the county. Usually you will file the motion to terminate probation in the division you were in when you plead to the charge. If the judge has moved, the motion will be heard by the judge currently sitting in that division.

    We are lucky in this country that we have public defenders who for the most part work hard for very little money. You are not likely to find a lawyer who will do a first degree murder case PRO Bono. These cases take up a huge part of a lawyers life and impacts their other cases, their family etc. Public Defenders are the equivalent of PRO BONO. I am sorry to tell you that but in some countries, your son would not even get a lawyer. Take care!

    You should be able to transfer your probation. Call your probation officer and ask how. If she says no, you can hire a lawyer who can file a motion. You can not buy out probation but you can buy out cost of supervision and in some jurisdictions buy out your community service hours. I wish you the bet of luck. Just make sure you do not violate probation because you could face jail time. It sounds like you are on track and are motivated to finish so you will likely be able to get off early if you...

  8. Need help with a juvenile case?

    I would only add to Mr. Haber's comments that an experienced Gainesville area lawyer may be able to mitigate (lessen) as much of the potential sentence as possible. He or she may have access to treatment providers that are more qualified than those on the government's list. Your child is looking at probation more than likely and it is more than likely that the State will keep your son's case in the juvenile system which is a blessing for you and your family.

    Sounds like you have some legitimate issues. Retain a local lawyer who can negotiate on your behalf and failing that can take your case to trial! Good luck with your DUI case!

    You should seek permission (and get confirmation in writing) from your probation officer and/or the Court. If they PO will not give you permission, you can file a motion with the Court to modify your county probation so that you can leave the state.
