    I agree that the criminal defense is the first thing that should be addressed. The charge is likely based on failing to stop and give information...unless the other party was seriously injured in which case it is failure to stop and render aid, which is a felony. Dangerous territory to go it alone. And this law applies without regard to who was at fault. Civil issues can be addressed afterwards.

    It would be easy for me to say that is depends, but I will go a little further than that. In Texas there is no first free bite when it comes to abnormally dangerous animals. It is my opinion that a pit bull is such an animal. And with a face wound, damages have the potential to be significant. I have written on this topic extensively for other lawyers and can tell you that the law is still very much in your favor. Naturally, others are correct when they say that some particular facts of...

  3. Signed lease less than 48 hours ago, is there a grace period under TX landlord tenant law to back out

    Answered almost 5 years ago.

    Unfortunately, no...unless the lease contract allows for such. In Texas, only certain transactions are subject to what is known as a "buyers' remorse" provision to get out. These transactions generally involve unsolicited (by you) door-to-door transactions, such as people selling alarm monitoring contracts. Otherwise, Texas is what is known as a "caveat emptor" state, which means "Buyer Beware."

    One of the difficult aspects of any personal injury case is dealing with liens at law, or liens in contract, either or both of which may be in play in your case. Both deal with an entity's right to enforce payment out of the proceeds of a settlement. It is not uncommon for certain liens, such as Medicare and Military Treatment liens to take several months to resolve. In the best situation your lawyer will be working on these liens early, but even then, delays are not uncommon. Defense...

  5. Can my custody get taken away if i am a stripper?

    Answered almost 5 years ago.

    1. Alexander Wyatt Wright
    1 lawyer answer

    Your dilemma poses no cut and dry answer. The short answer is that in Texas (like most states) the decision regarding who should be the conservator of a child is based on a "best interest of the child" standard. All by itself, being a stripper means nothing. However, when combined with other facts, such as whether this job will require odd hours or whether it will expose the child to unsavory people or elements, then it could very well have an effect on his/her custody. Since stripping does...

    You will need to consult a lawyer familiar with family law in Texas. The short answer is that there is not a written formula. In fact, spousal maintenance in Texas is very hard to obtain. I haven't researched it in quite some time, but I recall that it is reserved for cases in which the departing spouse simply has no means to provide for his or herself. Merely because a spouse has not worked (and is stay at home parent) is not relevant to the analysis. The question is whether you are capable of...

  7. How do i stop a previous employer for lieing on my employment verifications

    Well, a lawyer may well be needed. You can find one but you may have to pay one by the job or by the hour to help you. I would start by sending the former employer a "cease and desist" letter wherein you point out that continuing to defame you will result in you suing them for defamation. Generally there are 2 types of defamation: slander and libel. Slander is a defamatory statement given to a third party verbally, while libel is done in writing. Warning: in Texas you only have ONE YEAR...

    Not having the statutorily required liability insurance is a crime. If the police did not cite the other party, you can consider reporting the incident to your Justice of the Peace, who may take the criminal charge. However, that doesn't help you recover damages. A lawsuit in the JP court is quick, easy, affordable, and can be done without on attorney. Ask the JP for the "Small Claims Court" filing procedure. If you obtain a judgment in you favor, there is a series of forms that DPS...
