  1. Is it possible to obtain copies of sealed court orders in Texas?

    You need to ask your attorney since you are already represented by one. (But the answer is yes, you can receive copies of a sealed court order as long as you are a party to the case.) Your attorney should be able to help you make contact with the clerk of court to have certified duplicate orders issued.

  2. When a lawyer is disciplined by the state, does that mean he is not a good lawyer?

    No necessarily. Everyone makes mistakes sometimes. However, discipline is usually warranted for egregious mistakes, or repetitive mistakes, especially ones the attorney has failed to remedy. It would depend on the circumstances of the discipline, and the punishment issued. But most importantly, whether you are wasting your time and money would depend on if the lawyer learned their lesson. If you have concerns, ask the lawyer some tough questions. If you are satisfied with the answers...

  3. WeTV wants to license my sons viral video and pay him $150. Should he do it?

    No, $150 is far too low. You need to hire a copyright attorney to negotiate view rights and residuals on the video. You also need to look into monetizing the youtube video. There are several books and articles out their on the web that can help you.

    AVVO does not allow tracking of ALL certifications which would qualify as legal experience. Many people have practiced for years under a federal patent agent license, but AVVO's procedure is to ignore such experience. The same thing may occur when someone has experience practicing in another country. Also, some corporations hire non-attorneys to perform legal task for them, often using paralegals and professional consultants to draft patent applications, contracts, briefs, etc. as long as...

    Seek a local criminal defense attorney who can make inquiries to see if you have reason to be concerned, and to defend you and negotiate you coming forward to face the allegations if you are to be arrested. Since you are speaking of arrest, I am assuming this is a criminal matter, and am editing the category accordingly

    As long as the products are not protected under copyright, and do not infringe on the trademark or trade dress of another company, you may import your own branded products for resale. The trick is making sure you are not infringing the rights of others with a written manufacturing clearance opinion. Contact an experienced IP attorney for a full analysis of the specific markets and products you wish to import.

  7. Can a parent report car stolen if the child does not bring car back when asked?

    I disagree with the attorney who stated the car is not stolen. A vehicle used beyond the allowed permission is stolen, and can be reported as such. However, once you go down that route, you will have to follow it to the full conclusion. What may have been a rambunctious child having a tough time with life, now becomes a convicted felon who is unemployable. Your child driving your car makes you responsible for some of their actions. As much as we want the best for our children, they...

    It would depend on the ban. Is it a ban on you personally, or on citizens from your previous country of citizenship? You need to see an immigration attorney with the specifics of your case.

  9. When selling a tax foreclosed lot, shall I use a special warranty deed or general warranty deed?

    You should use a special warranty deed if the buyer will accept it. As to your question about the buyer refraining from buying the lot. It would depend on the buyer and the price. No way for us to guess on that. However, my advice to a buyer/client would be to require a general warranty deed. (But clients don't always listen to us lawyers.)

    Some general practice's have a wide range of experience and use that to offer a unique service to their clients. That being a single place to go for all their legal issues. Many general practice firms, such as my own, have several different attorneys who work cases in different areas. Therefore, even though the law office is a general practice firm, the attorneys may specialize. There are also attorneys who specialize in several practice areas that are loosely related, an example would be...
