    I am surprised you got jail time just for falling behind on payments, which is not a valid reason to do what they did to you. You really need to hire a good lawyer.

  • Can I add my name to my husband's car insurance ? I am driving the care everyday , and my name not on the card

    Hi, I got married a few months ago ,and we have been trying with my husband's car insurance ( state farm ) to add my name on the card , they wont let me, they say I am covered , my name on their computer ..so its ok if i drive the car but the card...

    Carmine’s Answer

    It doesn't matter if your name is not on the card. The insurance covers the car, not the individual. You are covered unless you are specifically named as an excluded driver. However, there shouldn't be a problem to add your name to the card. If they are giving you a hard time, switch to another company. USAA, Farmers, Texas Farm Bureau, Safeco, Liberty Mutual, Nationwide, Travelers, The Hartford, and Farmers are decent company alternatives. Make sure to get PIP and UM/UIM because these coverages are extremely important.

  • Do criminal lawyers handle expungements? Or is there a lawyer specially for expungement cases?

    I'm 22 years old, part time student, and a full time employee at a Family Dollar Store. When I was 17 years old I got into a little trouble with a group of friends who decided to steal out a department store. Although I didn't take anything I was ...

    Carmine’s Answer

    You didn't have to wait 2 years. You could have gotten the expungement when you were 17. Expungements must be done perfectly and sent to all the right places to not show up any more. Any attorney, criminal or civil, can do an expungement. My firm does both criminal and civil, as do a lot of other law firms. Find a firm you are comfortable with. If you got 90 days deferred adjudication probation, you qualify for an expungement now.

  • I had a felony case dismissed in 1999 in Texas. Will this show up as a felony on my record?

    My lawyer got the case dismissed on the grounds that the State did not try to locate me. I had the same address for over 10 years and filed my taxes with that same address and I also worked for the same company for 10 years while I was on a warrant.

    Carmine’s Answer

    It will show up until you get an expungement. After that, it will be gone like it never happened. www.giardinolawfirm.com
