    I want to make this right , but I have no way to make payment arrangements or pay a lawyer fee to get warrants lifted . got the warrants in 2008 . I was diagnosed with ADHD , depression and anxiety in 98 . I have been taking prescribed medication...

    Marjorie’s Answer

    Unfortunately, many courts will not offer you a payment plan on warrants. I agree with the other lawyer that you can call them and ask for information, and not to go in person, or to the DPS because you can be detained. If you cannot pay at all, your only option may be to sit them out in the different jails. Are your cases all in one court or county? I handle traffic warrants and offer payment plans, as do most attorneys. Also, be wary of sitting out fines for No driver's license and no insurance cases, as these can add surcharges in excess of $1000 to your license renewal fee. If you take this one step at a time, you can fix the problem Call some attorneys and find out what your cost may be.

    I agree with the other attorney that you may have a problem If your daughter did in fact hit this other person and was not physically assaulted first. If she felt in fear of bodily injury from the teen she hit then she may have a defense, but she cant use unreasonable force. You need to have an attorney subpoena the video ASAP.

  • Can u get a PR bond for a domestic violence 2 within 12 months charge???

    If u r on probation and got a violation for leaving the halfway house but no new charges or no failed UA????

    Marjorie’s Answer

    This question sounds like the same person who inquired about the probation revocation. It is very very unlikely that you can get a PR bond from the court. A PR bond is a bond on you own "personal recognizance" , in other words that you will return under your own word, or promise and is usually given to first time offenders. You have failed to show for probation, so the court cannot rely on that promise.

  • If u r in jail on probation violation for leaving halfway house in Lubbock tx no new charges is can u get a bond

    If u leave halfway house and your po knows cuz u call her and she puts out an ARP and u got no new charges and haven't failed a UA but u was scared to go in cuz u didn't want to go back to jail can u be reinstated??? Can a Lawyer get u a bond...

    Marjorie’s Answer

    This is a difficult situation. Absconding (leaving your probation) is one of the worst things you can do. That said, the situation also does not get better the longer you wait, Chances of reinstatement decrease the longer you wait, in my opinion. You will have to speak to a lawyer. You should speak to more than one lawyer familiar with the court before you hire one. If you can't afford one, the court will appoint one. Your husband is also entitled to a bond once he is in jail, but you are better off saving your money for a lawyer. My experience in this situation is that the person ends up serving a month or two to work this out. He could be sentenced from 2 years to 10 years if the judge will not reinstate. Judge will want to know why he left the halfway house. If it was drugs. they may offer help. Good luck

  • I already payed my ticket do i also need to pay this lawyer michel ira asen too?

    I am 18 i was caught shoplifting at jc. Penny first time ever, cops showed up an gave me a ticket i went to court payed it and now i am getting these letter in the mail and phone calls from michel ira asen that i need to pay what do i do

    Marjorie’s Answer

    This is hard to answer without knowing what this letter specifically is demanding. I am assuming that it is a civil demand letter. The Texas Theft Liability Act provides that you can be sued for the costs incurred from the theft. The cost of recovery, such as the security systems, etc. Theoretically, you may be liable, but they will probably not seek the money by suing you in civil court. The attorney's fees are more than what you owe.

  • Waiv 1 pg s meaning

    Charge is poss cs pg2 4g-400g

    Marjorie’s Answer

    This is an indication of the type of drug possessed and and the amount. These change the level of offense. The penalty groups are listed in the Texas Health and Safety Code. This looks like a Second Degree felony(4 and 400 grams for Pen. Group 2): 2nd Degree Felony, and the group 2 is generally Ecstasy, PCP (Phencyclidine), Mescaline, Marinol. You need to consult with an attorney and have them look at the case to to give you a specific answer.

    Marjorie’s Answer

    You should feel free to talk to a criminal defense lawyer. If you don't feel comfortable talking with them , look for one who makes you feel at ease. This is not a serious crime, but you do not want this to turn into a final conviction. It can affect you for the rest of your life.

    Marjorie’s Answer

    Texas law does provide that they can collect for the expense of having to pursue theft charges, and for the expense of security to prevent theft. I agree that if you ignore the letter, most companies do not pursue that matter as it is too costly for them.
