    Too many factors are present in your case and too many facts are missing. You need to hire a good DUI defense attorney to handle your case. Considering that there was a multi-car accident with injuries, not only your DUI but other legal action might be pending. Best wishes to you.

    Immigration is based upon federal law and an Illinois license is not required to practice immigration law as long as the attorney is licensed to practice in some state and if applicable, before the federal court where the case is heard.

    It is not up to you to decide how your parents' inheritance should be distributed. If your mother never made provisions for a disproportionate distribution, then there is little that can be done by her survivors/heirs. While you may feel this is unfair, your parents made the provisions for their estates. If you wish to contest the will, you need to retain a good probate attorney.

    First of all, neither you nor your husband should make any further admissions in public or in private except to an attorney. If your husband still has medical issues, they should be addressed as soon as possible, but he may also need an attorney to handle his personal injury case. There may be an issue of contributory negligence, but this will be something to discuss only in person with an attorney. If you do not know any attorneys who handle this sort of matter, you can click on the Find a...

    Yes, you should speak with a lawyer first. Do not meet with anyone until you do and refrain from any further discussion here or in any other public forum or from any conversation except with your lawyer.

    Contact the new dentist. If he purchased the old dentist's practice, he purchased all of it, including repair work. Only if that does not work should you contact a lawyer. Right now, this is more of a dental services question. Best wishes and Merry Christmas.

    Depending upon the terms and provisions of your Judgment for Dissolution, you most likely have recourse. Speak to your former lawyer or hire a new one.

    You cannot refuse to attend the deposition. Contact the attorney and make arrangements for a day and time that you can attend. You face serious sanctions if you do not attend your deposition.

    Alienation of affection is a separate civil action. There is no way to tell you how much such a suit wold cost but it is an action which is rarely successful in Illinois and for that reason most attorneys discourage such a filing. You would be better off putting your energies and money into participating in your divorce case. Fault has no bearing on outcome so you really need to hire a good divorce attorney to help you. You are fortunate that there are many excellent family law...
