    You have possible defenses but most importantly you need to be careful posting such details online. This is a public forum and your situation is fairly unique so your admission you shoved her could be discovered by the police or state. I would reserve the details for your lawyer. Hire one. Tarrant co is tough but for the most part they also want to see justice done. Hire an attorney and let them prepare your case. I handle matters in Tarrant county and would be happy to speak with you.

    Do NOT sign off on anything or make a recorded statement without speaking to an attorney first! You may be entitled to more than they're offering. Additionally, you may require future medical treatment that the insurance company is not willing or offering to pay at this point. Most if not all attorneys offer free consultations to discuss your rights and potential remedies. Feel free to contact me to discuss your options. Good luck.

  3. Do I need a criminal pro bono lawyer or public defdefender.

    You need to surrender yourself to the court and request a court appointed lawyer if you can't afford one and there is a warrant out for you. If you truly are unable to afford an attorney you will be appointed one most likely, whether it is a public defender or a private attorney that is appointed to you by the court and paid by the court. Either way, a felony theft charge is no minor matter, so you need to get moving to get this process started. Good luck

    First, go to the hospital and get both you and your daughter checked out. Next make sure the police make a report of the wreck after investigating and get the other person's insurance bThen, hire an attorney to help you realize the amount of damages you have suffered, both property and personal. Good luck and hire an attorney ASAP to protect yourself.

    File a motion for discovery. Request that the city produce the in car video, or explain why there isn't a video. Request the crash study (specifically identify what you want), request the ticket issuance history for the stop sign adn the specific officers. Be reasonable but request more than you actually want so if they city fights it you can "compromise" and only get what you really want. Some muni courts will not provide portions of discovery pretrial but you should try and get all that...

    it depends on what you're charged with? Are you charged with DWI or PI? Even though you weren't sitting in the vehicle based on the facts you present there is plenty of circumstantial evidence to try to prove you were driving- your car, you were the only person standing near it. But if you didn't blow or give breath then they have very little evidence against you. Again it all depends on what you were charged with. A PI they have to prove intoxication and that you were a danger to...

  7. If you are in an accident and it's 100% the other drivers fault, but your license came back suspended.. in the state of Texas

    Just because your license was suspended doesn't mean you deserved to be hurt. What it will come down to is provable fault and coverage by the other driver's insurer. You need an attorney to fight for you though because the insurance company makes its money by fighting claims like these. I handle personal injury cases throughout the state, so feel free to contact me to discuss your options and how to get you taken care of. Good luck

    What is your question? The courts in Denton are tough, so are the juries. The fact that you're facing a felony DWI is scary, but if there is nothing other than subjective evidence a jury COULD believe that the state has not met its burden of beyond a reasonable doubt. Then again, they might also say that you were guilty the first 2 times so you are probably guilty this time too. It's a tough call that ONLY your attorney can give accurate and real advice. I am not trying to be rude, I just...

    Why he had a warrant will control what happens along with whether he hires an attorney or one is appointed to him. Court-appointed attys and public defenders are good but they're overworked. If you or he can hire an attorney they can work with the probation dept, prosecutor and court to try and get your BF back on probation and towards success. I handle PV in Dallas county and would be happy to speak with you or your BF. Good luck.

    Depending on your actual question you need to either speak with a criminal defense attorney with experience handling expunctions and dealing with administrative boards or an administrative attorney that has experience with expunctions. It sounds as though you have something on your record that you want to expunge but aren't sure if you're eligible and not sure if an expunction (or non-disclosure) is sufficient to protect your record from the board. Feel free to contact my office via email or...
