  • Can you find out if a person has a warrant for me --- in Texas --- Duane A. Dunfee 8/26/66

    please advise - to robbynrenee@hotmail.com

    John’s Answer

    I would suggest calling a bondsman in the county or city that you think you may have a warrant. They will be able to check and see if there is one and the amount of the bond. Alternatively, you can contact a local attorney in that area to do the same but generally, calling a bondsman is the quickest route.

  • Do we need a lawyer for a 20 year (21 in 2 months) who got a dui. Blew .09?

    dui took place in greeley, co

    John’s Answer

    I am bias but any time you deal with case where your liberty (jail) is at stake, you need to consult with an attorney. There are several well qualified DUI attorneys from Colorado with national reputations. (One of those provided you an answer here-Rhidian Orr) Just because an attorney may handle criminal work doesn't mean he is versed in the latest in DUI defense. DUI is a very technical area and there are many ways to attack cases that may seem pretty straight forward.

    John’s Answer

    An attorney should be able to go in and correct the order determining child support. It will need to be filed in the county in which the child support order came from though.

  • Can I file a lawsuit to invalidate an employment contract?

    I am currently employed under a large employer. I signed a work contract for the duration of eight months in return for payment of school. I have worked for them for one month, and now I am sitting at home, not making any money. Can I take action?

    John’s Answer

    The written contract will determine whether you can get out of the contract. It will be necessary to see if there are any cancellation clauses as well as looking to see that both sides are fulfilling their part of the contract. It sounds like they have provided some consideration in that they paid for your school but if they made other promises in the contract that they have not fulfilled, it may provide for a breach of contract allowing you to get out of the contract. There is no way to provide specific answers to your question without seeing the contract as it is controlling. Good luck

  • If a person has 3 DUIs will they go to prison and for how long? if they servered 13 yrs military and have PTSD canthey gethelp

    3rd DUI

    John’s Answer

    Alot of answers from attys not licensed in SD and I hate to add to that but want to address part of your question that I think is very important and hasn't really been addressed.
    Please find a lawyer who is familiar with PTSD. There are numerous studies that show an increase in alcohol related offenses being committed by our servicemen due to self treating the PTSD with alcohol or other substances. In a case like yours, your attorney should want to see your DD-214 as well as map out a time line of the DUIs to show a pattern.
    Although alcohol treatment can help, until the demons of the PTSD are addressed and managed, the drinking will more than likely continue. Many areas are starting Veteran's Courts that are similar to DUI Court programs but are able to handle the muances and obstacles that our veterans are having. One of the other posters referred to a VA hospital. Definitely make an appointment to see them and get the ball rolling towards getting better. If you ares diagnosed and there is a treatment plan in place, it is something your attorney may be able to use in your case. (Also, may qualify you for some disability but not sure of this aspect)
    Good luck and thank you for your service.

  • Refund

    If I paid a lawyer and he has not started my case in two weeks or longer can I get my money back and hire another lawyer.

    John’s Answer

    You will need to look at you fee contract with the attorney. Also, it will depend on the amount of work he has done and the type of case involved. I agree with the previous poster that you need to contact the attorney. Two weeks is not a lot of time depending on the type of case. Also, there may be work going on behind the scene that you may not be aware of (requesting medical records, accident records, police reports, demand letters, etc). Some of these documents may be necessary before any further steps can be taken.

  • How can I give my parental rights up and discontinue paying child support? Who do I need to contact?

    I had to pay back child support to my newborn child at a month and a half of age, which is ridiculous because she wasn't even over a year old. I was never able to get back onto my feet nor get to have visitations due to them changing their phone ...

    John’s Answer

    Short of the child being adopted by someone else, it is virtually impossible to avoid child support. For public policy reasons, Oklahoma courts do not let a person escape child support by simply giving up parental rights. Regardless of whether you exercise your rights to see your child, you are still responsible for supporting that child. If the child receives any type of state assistance, the state will come after you for support also. You can go to court to enforce vistation to see your child.

  • Pulled over and without a license, what can be done?

    Pulled over for a broken tail light but arrested for not having a license. I am illegal and have court coming up what can I do?

    John’s Answer

    Are you currently seeking citizenship or attempting to become legal? If so, you need to speak with your immigration attorney to see what effect this may have on your process. Looking at the criminal aspect. if you were ticketed for not having a license as opposed to driving under suspension, it may be possible to avoid going to court by paying for the ticket at the clerks counter. This will result in a conviction for the charge though. If the charge is for driving under suspension, then the charge is more serious and I would consult an attorney. Most attorneys in OKC, including myself, give free consultations.

  • I got a DUI in 2003 they took my license.I never started my Dui classes,I moved out of state , how can I get them back

    I'm working but need a license to get back and forth to work

    John’s Answer

    If your DL revo is out of Oklahoma, then you are more than likely eligible to reinstate. You will have to complete the reinstatement requirements which generally are an alcohol assessment and the completion of the requirements. The minimum requirements are a ten hour DUI school and a Victim Impact Panel. The main number for DPS is 405-425-2424. You are not eligible for a mod or work permit if you are eligible to reinstate. They may also ask you if you have had anything to drink in the last year or when your last drink was. If they ask this question and you say anytime in the last year, they will not reinstate your license. Your first step is to contact DPS.

  • What if I found out the judge on my case of revoke, was the da on my prelim case can he be both?and try me,was the da now judge?

    He was my da on my 2008 case, and now back in court and he is my judge?? don't sound right to me? can I recluse? what is this called ?

    John’s Answer

    It would be a motion to recuse and there is a required procedure to be followed. It can just be done in open court. If there is an appearance of impropriety, than most judges will recuse. However, your attorney will want to look at the alternative as far as what other judges could you get.
