  • Have Illinois revoked lic on DUI. No other charges. What states if any will allow me to obtain lic if I live there. Western st.

    Felony conviction 1981. Sentence served

    Judy’s Answer

    It is unlikely any state will grant you a drivers license if you are revoked in Illinois. Please speak to an attorney about getting your Illinois license reinstated. The go-to attorney in Springfield for drivers license issues is Ted Harvatin. He may respond to your inquiry. Contact and hire him!

  • Can a customer sue a hotel for continuous, ongoing harassment?

    We are purposely being harassed by some of the Holiday Inn personnel staff here in Roselle, IL due to us paying a "residential rate" which is a discounted rate. We've been here for 3 years now but since this hotel have changed ownership we are now...

    Judy’s Answer

    You can sue anyone for anything but the better question is whether you can win, and if so, whether you can collect. Your strong belief might be accurate but unless you have definite proof, you will probably go nowhere in court. You will spend a great deal of money and time without the guarantee of a positive outcome. As for the annoyance, most motels and motels these days are privately owned so you can complain to the corporate owners or to corporate headquarters for the chain. You may There is no guarantee you will get a response or even that you will get a positive response. You could ask for a different room but may be denied If the employees are trying to get you to move since the rate you are paying might not transfer to a new space. Read the documents you received when you first took the room. There may be additional information available there. You could also discuss your situation in private with an attorney.

  • How much time will i possibly serve?

    I am not a us citizen 25 years ago in chicago i was on probation and was convicted with position of cocain and weapon charges.. I was out on bail i fled the country went over seas to the middleeast... Im trying to come back and turn my self in ?...

    Judy’s Answer

    There is no way of knowing how much time you will serve or what additional immigration you face. Before your even attempt t return, you should speak in depth to either both a criminal defense attorney or an immigration attorney or one who handles both matters. Do not attempt to do this yourself and do not rely on any legal research or answers you might obtain online.

    Judy’s Answer

    File a motion to withdraw the petition for dissolution and to dismiss the case. If there is a counter-petition, that must also be withdrawn. Without objection, your case will be routinely dismissed. Congratulations. We divorce lawyers are always happy to learn of a reconciliation.

    I walked into the grocery store and tripped and fell because there was a faulty frame around the rug that was clearly covered with black tape and the tape was worn,causing a large lip that tripped me. I suffered a sprained neck,back,wrist,and also...

    Judy’s Answer

    While you may have a case, the store could disagree as to the cause of your fall and injuries. Furthermore, your injuries may not be serious although they could be ongoing and therefore more serious than you indicate here. First continue to take care of your medical issues. Then speak to a personal injury/ slip and fall lawyer. Take pictures of the rug at the store, even if they have made repairs or corrections. Bring all of your records with you.

  • My 17 year old friend let me use his visa card online. is that's enough for me legally to use his card? I won't go to jail?

    He is 17 I am 18.

    Judy’s Answer

    If your friend is 18 and not 17 as you state in the title of your inquiry, but he gave you permission to use the card, you will be OK, provided your friend does not rescind his permission. f your friend does not agree, or even if he does, you should reimburse your friend for the expense. You will not go to jail. Just don't do it again. You friend can make purchases for you.

    This is not an immigration question. I will change the practice area accordingly.

  • What is the employer's responsibility when someone has jury duty? Do they use PTO? Do we have to pay?

    This is the first time we have something like this.

    Judy’s Answer

    The answer to your question depends upon the nature of the employment. As an employer, your kindest approach would be to pay the employee or deduct the small amount the employee receives as compensation for jury duty. If the employee is salaried, pay the employee his/her regular wage. If the employee is hourly, you could do the same. If the employee is part time, you might choose not to pay the employee. If the employee is a union member, check the provisions of the collective bargaining agreement. The employee is dong his/her civic duty and you as the employer should not penalize him/her for doing so, although you have a right to deduct or count those days off. If your company has a lawyer, ask your lawyer for recommendations.

  • Can I sue someone for not sending me a package I ordered?

    I ordered a package of $29.95 and didn't receive it, I emailed the company and asked about it, they said they no longer had the item and would give me $10 more dollars in store credit, equalling $39.95 They are now ignoring me and I still don't ...

    Judy’s Answer

    You will spend a whole lot more than $29.95 to sue a company that has o way of providing the item that you ordered. Accept their generous offer of a refund plus $10. If you paid by PayPal or credit card, file a dispute immediately so that you get your refund promptly.
