    Stephen’s Answer

    Based upon what you have described it seems likely that they are actively cheating you. You should consult with an attorney very quickly. You might be entitled to a temporary restraining order or a temporary injunction which could keep the money around long enough to get your hands on it. Keeping money safe is generally easier than getting it once it is gone.

    Of course, a full review of all the facts by a lawyer would be necessary in order to give you any actual advice.

  • Do I need a personal injury lawyer

    A guy I was sleeping with on abd off told me he had hpv. I had asked repeatedly if he was clean he assured me he was no that I'm calling it off he comes out with this. What should I do

    Stephen’s Answer

    If you actually contracted an STD (in the original question I notice that it says HPV but in comments Herpes is mentioned) along with an admission in a text message, then you likely have an excellent case. However, if he doesn't have any money then there is no money to get.

    Stephen’s Answer

    Tort reform has certainly led to plaintiffs attorneys turning down meritorious cases involving medical malpractice. That said, keep talking to attorneys. There are still some Texas lawyers that take Medical Malpractice cases.

    Stephen’s Answer

    The insurance company's job is to make sure that they give your relative as little money as they can so that they can provide money to their shareholders (which is their duty). Your relative should get an attorney whose duty is to get your relative as much money as possible. Especially if he is injured.

    Stephen’s Answer

    I would recommend making sure that your attorney is experienced and a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association (TTLA). The only way to become a member is to be invited. They don't take everyone.

    Stephen’s Answer

    I agree with what the other lawyers have said, for the most part. My number one concern, however, is that an individual with an attorney feels the need to ask random attorneys on the internet for their advice. If a client has concerns about their current attorney, the underlying issues creating that concern should be addressed.

    It really depends upon whether there is anything of value to split up and whether there is agreement between all the parties about how to split up the assets, if any.

    Absolutely. I don't personally handle disability claims but I know plenty of very good lawyers in San Antonio that do and that do not take any money from their clients until they win.

  • I had an indictment then they came back and re indicted me and changed she case number

    is it possible to be indicted on something then ALL OF A SUDDEN BE RE INDICTED ON SOMETHING ELSE ON SAME CHARGE AND THEN CHANGE the case number

    Stephen’s Answer

    Not unusual at all. Since you are looking at potentially going to prison and facing a felony charge, you should retain an attorney as soon as possible to help you study the specific facts of your case.
