  • Are court appointed attorneys in the state of Alabama required to contact a client before going to court?

    I have a family member with a court appointed attorney. The attorney has not made contact with client , it has been 6 weeks since attorney was appointed. They met briefly during a preliminary hearing 2 weeks ago, but not until the actual hearing...

    Yes. They are. But you're supposed to contact the lawyer, also. Make sure you contact the lawyer and make an appointment. Show up for that appointment. If the lawyer fails to show, you need to ask for another lawyer or, better yet, hire a qualified criminal defense lawyer with a track record of winning. Imagine yourself winning your case because you deserve a lawyer who will fight to win your case.

  • Is it legal for me to keep my wife's prescription narcotic ?pain medicine on me?

    my stepson will steal her oxycontin pain medicine when she is under the influence of the drug unless I keep it on me.

    Richard’s Answer

    If the medicine is in the correct prescription pill bottle with a valid prescription in her name and she's with you, it's fine. If she's not with you, grey area. If the pills are not in the correct prescription bottle whether she's with you or not, it's a felony.

  • Why is it taking so long for the courts to assign a public defender for my husband.

    Charged with SORNA BOND 30 THOUSAND DOLLAR. HAD PUT IN A REQUEST FOR A PUBLIC DEFENDER 3 WEEKS AGO. HAVEN'T HEARD ANYTHING

    Richard’s Answer

    The system is clogged. Court-appointed counsel may or may not even be aware of the appointment. The judge may not have seen the request. Imagine your husband winning his case by hiring a lawyer who will fight to win because you deserve a lawyer who will fight to win your case. Use a court appointed counsel only as a last resort.
