    Many probate courts have websites where all the forms can be downloaded. However, they do not tell you which forms are needed nor how to fill them out. There is a lot of knowledge and experience needed to do probate work. This is why attorneys charge fees. In fact, the Supreme Court of Ohio certifies experts in estate practice after passing a very rigorous exam. The clerks of court will not advise you because it is against the law for them to practice law without a license. So, yes,...

    The short answer is yes. However, the question you have asked is so much more complicated. Before this issue ever gets to a jury a judge has lots of authority to shape the decision. If there is any possibility that your query refers to a situation which gets litigated, an experienced lawyer should be contacted.

    I would be stunned if the prosecutor dismissed the charges. This is serious stuff and the judge will not be kind if you do not get yourself some good representation right away. (I know of a person under the same circumstances who received 20 days in jail, $2000 fine and a 3-year license suspension. She subsequently lost her job and custody of her kids.) Can't afford an attorney? Borrow the money or ask for a public defender if you are indigent.

  5. First ever offense for an OVI, refusal, but ended up being honest about a urine test and turned into drug punishment??

    You have an attorney. It would be unethical for another attorney to advise you. Your attorney is the best one to ask. If this person is unable to give you a complete explanation, you need another lawyer to see if there are some appealable issues (probably not). "Well-known" attorney does not necessarily mean "experienced" in complex Ohio OVI law but give this person a chance. I am sorry I could not be more encouraging.

    If you are an at-will employee (95% of all Ohio workers), your employer need not have ANY reason to fire you. There are, however, some narrow exceptions concerning discrimination due to race, gender, age, national origin, religion, military service (but not yet sexual orientation in Ohio.) So, even if they are wrong about you stealing, they can still legally fire you. (There is another very narrow exception called "violation of public policy" ,but in Ohio this doctrine has essentially been...

    I could give you all sorts of scenarios and I understand that you are worried about the outcome. But the only person who can evaluate this case is the attorney you hired. USUALLY, a "second in six" gets you at least six days incarceration or three days and a three day driver intervention program. But to give advice without all the facts would be unethical. Further, you should not be posting anything on this website about this case. Anything you write here is not privileged and can be used...

    I sincerely doubt that any (and I mean ANY) attorney will take your case according to your conditions. Further, your directives could very well be a violation of the Attorney's Code of Professional Conduct which could put a license at stake. I suggest you adjust your expections substantially.

    This sounds like a very complicated case. It has aspects of criminality, incapacity, civil liability, collectibility, contracts, insurance policies, statute of limitations et al. So, as much as you do not want to, you must get an attorney with a broad background who can pull all of this information together to guide you.

    Depending on all the facts, the situation you describe could be a claim for disability discrimination in violation of Title VII of the United States Code as well as Ohio Revised Code 4112.02. The disability law became more employee-friendly in January 2010 and there is some legal precedent that addiction is a disability. You need to speak to a worker's employment attorney ASAP to see whether this situation can be fixed right now. The longer you wait, the longer it will take to get any...
