  • My son was giving another kids adhd medicine at scool and i didnt take him to the doctor do i have a case

    my son was giving another kids adhd medicine at school i didnt take him to the doctor do i have a case

    John’s Answer

    If I understand your question is that your son was given medicine at school that was not his. Unless your son suffered damages, there really isn't any point of a lawsuit as there are no damages. Although it was wrong, it appears no one was harmed. If your son suffered damages, then you possibly have a lawsuit and should consult with an attorney that handles personal injury cases.

  • My husband was on probation but did not complete the term is there anything i can do to get him out of trouble

    its been 3 years since then and i know he has a bench warrent out for his arrest if there was anything that i can do to help him please let me know because we have 3 kids and hes afraid to leave the house

    John’s Answer

    Your husband needs to consult with an attorney to find out what can be done to resolve the case. Most attorneys provide a free consultation and will be able to advise you what needs to be done and how much trouble he is in. It could be as simple as getting the requirements completed to revoking his probation for jail time. You won't know though until you meet with an attorney and get a gameplan.

    You and your husband are living in fear that may be able to be resolved quite easily. I would chose a local attorney from the county where the probation is though.

    Good luck

  • What is the correct way to get a judge to make a decision on a case that was tried 8 years ago?

    I have been calling my Laywer for 8 years now but he does not seem to want to confrount the judge. What are my options?

    John’s Answer

    Not really enough information to give you a credible answer without speculating. Here are some tips that hopefully will help you though. Depending on county, you can find out the status of the case by going to www.oscn.net and click on court dockets across the top. Then look and see if your county is listed in the drop down box on left. If it is, click on the tab that says Search Dockets and enter info from there.

    If it is not listed, then click on the tab that says non-ocis counties and fill in information from there. Then you can pull up the docket form and see what the status is of the case and whether is really is that the judge hasn;t made a decision.

    If you are unhappy with your counsel and feel that he is not doing want you want, seek other counsel. New counsel can step in usually at almost any point in a case. If your attorney wan't return your calls, send a certified letter requesting an update and status of your case and what needs to be done to resolve it.

    John’s Answer

    Send them a certified letter telling them that your son does not live with you and to stop contacting you. if they continue to contact you after that, document it and go see your local attorney about suing them for violating Oklahoma's Consumer Protection Act.

  • I was fired over the weekend for expressing my opinion about the company and my market manager via text message

    over a non corporate group chat application, I was under the influence at the time and off the clock and I was fired without a chance to speak to HR to defend myself

    John’s Answer

    The previous poster is correct about at will employment. Oklahoma is an at will employment state. The only thing to add is to look at your employment handbook to see if there were any set procedures that they were suppose to follow as far as terminating you. That may be your only recourse in addition to the other possibilities expressed by the previous attorney.

  • Can a part-time employee be required to work more hours than agreed upon from point of hire?

    Employed by a small medical firm and has been required to work more hours than desired. If not working the required hours ( > 30 hrs) then threatened with dismissal. Can the employer require this? The origional statmement of hire was to work ...

    John’s Answer

    Oklahoma is an at will employment state so unless you have a contract or written agreement that would be your schedule, than will be tough for you. An employer can change hours and shifts to suit their business as long as it is not some type of scheme to get rid of employees for discriminatory reasons.

    If they terminate you, you may be able to collect unemployment if you can show that the termination was not due to job performance but them changing the hours of employment to ones you could not work.

  • Do lawyers raise the price when dealing with 2nd DUI?

    I just recently encountered my 2nd DUI for not blowing the breathalizer. My first DUI was not a conviction and reduced. However, after telling this to every lawyer that I've talk to, they've estimated the price up in the $2K range. My first DUI...

    John’s Answer

    Each case is different but with priors, it is harder to get a reduction or dismissal. Also, each set of facts and different jurisdictions can change the price as there may be more issues that need to be explored or more motions to file. Although the Tulsa market is a little different than OKC, $2k is very low for most DUI cases if being handled by an experienced DUI attorney.

    Most DUI qualified (ie...have attended DUI seminars, are field sobriety trained, are certified on the Intoxilyzer, and are members of the National College for DUI Defense) generally run $3k-$8k. This will include trying to prevent your license from being suspended.

    Be advised, Oklahoma just passed the Erin Swezy Act which is effective Nov 1, 2011. It may have bearing on you as it appears to apply when people are getting their license reinstated so would apply to you if your license is suspended. If you did not have your license suspended on your last DUI, then this would be your first suspension. If first suspension and you refused the test or tested over .15 BAC, then you will be required to have an ignition interlock device on your car for an additional 18 months after the 180 day suspension.

    If this is your second suspension, then regardless of breath score or refusal, you will be required to have the interlock for an additional 4 years after the 1 year suspension. The only way around this is to avoid the license suspension.

    Any attorney that is actively defending DUI cases should be telling you this. if not, they are probably not the best attorney for your DUI case. The other AVVO Pro listed on this site is from Tulsa. Bruce Edge is one of the best DUI attorneys in the country and does free consultations so call and speak with his office.

  • What are some consequences for getting a DUI on a military base in California as a civilain?

    I have a lawyer. They let me go home after and never took my license away. I'm just banned from base.

    John’s Answer

    If you were arrested on the military post, then you were on federal property. Being on federal property, the case falls to federal court instead of the local state or municipal court. Thus, it is up to the military police to present the charges to the US attorney. They may or may not do this. Keep in touch with your lawyer as he should be checking for filing. Also, even though it is federal, the state may still be able to take action against your drivers license so it is important to address that issue also.

    Good luck.

  • I have a Florida CDL license, I was charged with DUI in Illinois while vacationing, what is the reciprocity between these states

    There has been no conviction.

    John’s Answer

    You need to hire an attorney that specializes in DUI defense. Look at www.ncdd.com for referrals. CDLs are very tricky and it is not as easy as getting it dismissed or reduced. Under the Code of Fed. regulations which the states were required to adopt or lose their highway money. A deferral, or dismissal that involves payment of any court costs will be considered a DUI conviction for CDL purposes which would cause the 1 year disqualification of your CDL. Also, a reduction at the end of probation to reckless driving would be considered "masking" and would also count as a conviction for CDL purpose.

    This is a very technical area and you want to make sure that you get a person trained in DUI defense to handle this. Most of the attorneys on ncdd.com will be qualified. Don Ramsell is a regent for the college and is definately able to assist.

  • I was med-flighted to Boston due to crash, not charged with a DUI, but insurance denied me coverage based on blood results, 0.09

    I had a car crash due to black ice, med-flighted to Boston, blood test performed, without my knowledge, three times. I was in the hospital for 4.5 days and my car insurance is now denying all the claims and sending letters to all my doctors stati...

    John’s Answer

    You need to inquire what typre of blood test was done. Usually hospitals are more concerned with speed than accuracy and the testing methods they use do not have the same forensic reliability as a crime lab or forensic lab. For example, I had a manslsughter case several years ago where the hospital's blood test result was .17 BAC. The forensic lab tested the blood with a gas chromotographer (GC) which is more reliable and the blood result was .06 BAC. That is quite a difference.

    Your insurance company has a duty to act in good faith towards you. If they do not, they may be liable to you under a bad faith insurance law suit. In Oklahoma, that provides for triple damages. I would consider speaking to an attorney in MA that handles injury type lawsuits. The only MA attorneys I know are OUI attorneys but they may be able to refer you to someone they trust. Look for Attorneys Steve Jones, Jay Milligan, or Jack Diamond (Quincy) on the internet and call them for a referral.
