You do need to hire an attorney. Some attorneys would agree to take care of the civil infractions along with the Criminal citation. In any event, you can not wait until the court date on the criminal citation to take care of the civil citations. By then the time to respond or pay the civil citation will have passed and your license could get suspended. Feel free to call my office for more information.
Our attorney had advised us to disregard all filings until we receive a "summary judgement". At that time, we should attend court and let them know we are living there. That will guarantee us 60 days to find a new place to live. Can you confirm?
If a default is entered against you, you lose your right to fight virtually everything in the case except what is called "unliquidated damages"... You should discuss with your attorney whether you should file an answer or participate in some way before the default is entered, that way you can defend the case, should you later decide to do this.See question
I recently took to much Molly one night had a friend take me to a volunteer fire fighters house to get medical attention. The ambulance was called and police showed up as well. Before anyone got there my friend went and got the rest of the Molly a...
Based on those facts alone there is no showing that you had possession of the molly. If you had some in your pocket or otherwise on you, then you might be charged. If yiu are charged, you may have defenses-to establish them you should retain a criminal defense attorney.See question
I am due to end probation in just over two months which leaves me with no time to get the $ 7900 paid off . I have been to every probation visit and had no type of issues for the last four years while on probation . My charge was felony Grand T...
It depends on the reason that you have not paid the cost/fees/restitution- It appears that if it is a 3f GT, then you will be out of time and can not get your probation extended.
To find you in violation of probation for failure to pay cost/ fees/ and restitution, the State will have to proof that your not paying was "willful." If you have been making every effort possible, then you may be able to have the outstanding costs assessed as a lien. You need to try to pay as much as possible in the next 2 months. It appears to me that if you are in this position, you can not afford private counsel. If this is the case, you need to work diligently with your public defender to go over the likelihood of you being found to have willfully violated your probation.
Good luck to you.See question
What is the worst that could have, I have 1 prior of 3rd Degree Grand Theft in the state of Florida, 18 months probation served plead no contest with adjudication withheld, what will happen now? What is the best case scenario and what is the worst?
Agree- worst is prison, best is reinstatement or revoke and terminate. It depends on what the violation is- a new charge, travel out of county, break other rules of probation? Your question really can not be answered without looking at the vop report and plea form.You need to get a criminal defense attorney on it as soon as possible.See question
Approximately how long do we have until we have to move out of our home if we are in foreclosure, and if we have an attorney. (And this is after the Lis Pendens) We do not want to keep our house, but just need time to save up to move. Thanks in...
I agree with my colleague. The answer depends on so many things- the lender- the servicer- the plaintiff's firm.. As well as the attachments to the complaint and the owner of your Note. Hiring an attorney that is familiar with Foreclosure Defense will allow you to keep your thumb on the pulse of the litigation and have an idea of what is going on, as well as give you more opportunity to attack the deficiencies that may be present in the plaintiff's case. I practice in New Port Richey. Call my office for more information if you would like.See question
I was drinking with my neighbor and a friend at my home, in my garage when my neighbor cut his hand open. We couldn't stop the bleeding so I drove him to the hospital which is where I stayed parked once I arrived. I do have a dui from NJ that ha...
First, do not post any more about the arrest on this public forum. You bring up some decent points to attempt to negotiate a reduction in your charge. I prosecuted DUI in West Pasco County and now defend them. You need to hire an attorney to go through the arrest report and discovery, then negotiate. This is a case where hiring private counsel can help you. Feel free to call my office for more information if you'd like.
Best of luck,
What are the possible penalties being charged. This would be a 3rd DUI but my first one was over 18 years ago when I had no counsel and plead no contest. My 2nd DUI I had counsel back 7 years ago where I was ajudicated guilty. Could this mean t...
I agree with Mr. Katz, except that you already indicated that it is being charged as a misdemeanor. So, now you need to look at the charging document, (information) to determine how exactly they are charging it, you also have an elevated blow, so it appears that you need to begin mitigating with an attorney as soon as possible.
Get a lawyer to negotiate the plea or try to get you into a diversion program, if you qualify.See question

Unfortunately, as of right now, the banks are allowed to proceed to foreclosure while negotiation a loan modification. I know the answer you do not want to hear is: Hire an attorney.
Truth is, now that you have had a foreclosure suit filed against you, an attorney can help you successfully enter into a loan modification. The attorney can look at the law suit and determine whether it is legally sufficient, and to attack and use its inadequacies as negotiating tools when it comes to obtaining a loan modification.
If you do not respond to the complaint, the plaintiff will have a default entered against you and will most likely have a smooth sailing to a foreclosure sale. You can respond on your own, but you could potentially be waiving defenses available to you.
Many times consumers save money by hiring attorneys to fight for them, you should at least speak to one. Most offer free consultations.
Best of luck.
