    Man, listen really carefully to what I am going to tell you. I do not think that any other attorney will disagree with what I am going to tell you. SAY NOTHING FURTHER. Not to anyone but a good defense lawyer. I don't care if it's me; I don't care if it's someone else, just get an attorney immediately. Stay off message boards. Stay off social networking sites. Do not talk to your friends about it. Don't reply further here other than to perhaps use AVVO's link to set up phone conferences...

    I apologize for my colleagues caustic remarks: 1. The existence of a valid contractual agreement. 2. Breach of one or more terms of said agreement. 3. Damages which have resulted as a consequence of said breach. 4. This is really just for extra credit: the "new" McRib Sandwich exclusion applies whenever said delectable "meat" product sandwich has been made available to the public at such time that one (or more) party(ies) subject to the agreement could have been subjected to undue...

    Unfortunately, the legislature has determined this to be one of the specifically enumerated offenses for which one is not automatically entitled to proceed in the ordinary course of applying for first sealing, and later, expungement, which many individuals, including quite a few attorneys apparently, do not understand is a two step process. In other words, one can not apply for both sealing and expungement simultaneously. There is a substantial interval between the two processes which one...

    As an attorney, I am required to say "yes, absolutely". As an attorney who has been through this process personally, I will tell you that there are probably some things that you would likely overlook if you attempted to represent yourself which might change the financial picture. It sounds like you are clearly not a "deadbeat" Dad, which is a term that people, in and out of the field of law, love to throw around without any knowledge of the factual situation a given father may be facing,...

    Again, I advise you, that you need to do nothing, zero, nada....orally or in writing....on your own, through your attorney, or as your own attorney if you are acting pro se to ultimately have a jury of your peers hear the testimony and review the evidence in the case, and decide whether you are guilty, or not guilty. Unless the Sixth Amendment to the United States' Constitution was repealed and no one sent me the memo, you are walking around with its protections and many other constitutionally...

    Having had two four month old babies which became my sixteen and eight year old daughters sometime overnight either this week or last, I think you know the answer to the question without even getting a response. I will tell you this: Number 1 - I have no idea why this is listed under family law when you are making reference to a felong court room; Number 2 - a felong court room is no place for a baby; Number 3 - each Judge has his or her own courtroom policies, but even those who would...

    It would actually be the attorney's responsibility to file what is known as a Notice of Appearance with the Court, if an attorney has, in fact, been retained by your spouse, and he or she would also have a duty to provide you with a copy as well, since you are representing yourself at this time. Trial court judges tend to frown on unfair surprise, or what are referred to as "Gotcha" tactics, and most attorneys are aware of this; therefore, it seems odd that your wife sent a letter to the Court...

    The short answer is ... tricky. In a manner of speaking yes in that you may have what is called a "derivate claim". Generally, in circumstances such as these, the derivative claim which the spouse of the injured party may bring is for damages known as "Loss of Consortium". However, you, alone, may not file suit. Your claim, if one is demonstrated to exist, must be brought as a "derivative claim" ancillary to the suit for the damages caused to the party who was directly injured as a...

    Your avenue of recourse is through the Family Division of the Circuit Court in which your Petition for Dissolution was filed and litigated. From what I gather, and it does not matter whether same occurred as a consequence of pre-trial resolution through mediation; arbitration; informal settlement discussions; or any other mechanism of alternative dispute resolution; or whether the same result was obtained as a consequence of the verdict following the trial of your case, if same took place; you...

    Let me put it this way: some, actually many, would say that there is no way to an answer that question in any meaningful way, because the market dictates in a free economy and if a given attorney's analysis and work product, or even in many instances the mere fact that he or she is involved with the litigation of the case or will be involved if the matter is not resolved very early in the proceedings, results in a dramatically altered settlement range, upward obviously, then he or she is worth...
