    I agree with Mr. Brinkmeier. I can read a book about how to take out my appendix. I would not even think of trying to do it myself. The practice of law is the same. Consult with an attorney. it will not cost you a dime and will insure you receive the proper measure of damages.. Good Luck, Robert E. Heyman, Esq.

    You do not say whether you hVe retained an attorney. If not,you should. Your health insurance provider may assert a lien against funds rreceived from the tortfeasor. This amount is usually less than the actual medical bills and may also be negotiated downward at times. Please contact a local atty to discuss in greater detail. Fee free to call me at my office.

    The first.thing.that needs to be accomplished is.setting.up your.father's estate. I assume that you would serve as the PR for the estate. Secondly, while there may have been some evidence that your Dad may have run a stop sign, Florida is a comparative fault state. As such, there may also have been some fault on the part of the bus driver. Please accept my condolences on the loss of your Dad. I handle wrongful death claims throughout the Tampa Bay area. In most cases, the PR rarely needs to...

    Talk to your attorney. Speedy trial is routinely waived by attorneys who simply need more time to prepare a defense. You should understand that speedy trial is waived merely by your attorney asking to have a pretrial hearing continued to a later date.. If you truly want to receive a speedy trial, your attorney can file a written demand for speedy trial. By doing so, you are telling the judge that you are ready for trial within 5 days. Your trial will need to be scheduled within 45 days of...

    your boyfriend needs to listen to his lawyer, but under such circumstances, I have in the past requested an evidentiary hearing before the assigned judge in order to convince the court to find my client to qualify as a youthful offender regardless of the state's unwillingness to agree. The Youthful offender act provisions are the only way he can avoid the 10 yr minimum mandatory sentence Good Luck, Robert E. Heyman, Esq.

    My God, what possessed this person to continue to drive AFTER they were placed on probation for a habitual DWLSR charge????? Depending on the sentencing guidelines score, there may not be a mandatory DOC sentence, but your friend should get used to the fact that he or she is going to spend significant time in jail, since probation apparently didnt work. I can only advise you to obtain a local criminal attorney who might offer some alternative to straight jail time....work release; weekends,...

    Search incident to arrest has been expanded over the years to include the search of a vehicle if the arrest occurs while the person arrested is driving the vehicle or in close proximity. Your situation does not fit that requirement, unless there is some evidence that you had concealed stolen items inside the vehicle.You were right to refuse the search of your vehicle. good Luck, Robert E.

    I agree that you need to seek legal counsel ASAP. Two things, even though the underlying offense which formed the basis of the VOP was not prosecuted, the Court can still proceed with the VOP. Secondly, from your question, it appears you also violated a condition of your release on the new charge. That can also provide grounds for violating your probation, depending upon the reasons. Your attorney needs to contact both your PO and the State Attorney assigned to your case. Best case scenario...

    Please contact me to discuss your son's options at my office in St Petersburg. The first issue is whether the stop of your son's car was justified and whether the office had sufficient evidence to require him to submit to a breath test. In Pinellas County, a .13 BAC case is usually not negotiated downward from a DUI by the State Attorney, but I cannot advise you without knowing more about the case. As a first offender, you son can obtain a hardship license, but there are specific requirements...
