    Possibly, if there is not sufficient insurance on the car to cover for damages and the injured party is alleging some negligence on your behalf for allowing your ex to drive the car - based on knowing that she is drives drunk, recklessly, etc.

    You want to sue yourself for an accident that was a one vehicle accident? No, you can't do that. Additionally, pain and suffering are related to the amount of medical expenses and injuries that you suffered at the hands of another.

    First, I can't tell if you are seeking a personal injury lawsuit for something that happened four years ago, in which the statute of limitations has passed now. Or, if you are seeking to obtain parenting time with your child. Second, as a former judge and a former magistrate, I would not be suggesting the you seek a "blood thirsty" attorney. You are spending too much time on homeland security and anti-terrorism. You want an attorney who is assertive and knows how to get more flies with honey...

    Some attorneys do demand a certain inflated amount and some attorneys don't. It is a tactical decision

  6. Does a previous DUI offense give a police reasonable suspicion to pull you over or think you're drunk?

    No. The officer needs to observe you actually engaging in criminal conduct at the time of the stop to have reasonable suspicion to pull you over - weaving, speeding, following too closely, etc. They can't just pull up your history and say that because you did it once that you are likely doing it again.

    You likely waived your right to alimony. In CO, a legal separation can automatically be converted into a divorce with the SAME terms and conditions after 6 months. Most attorneys offer "unbundling of services" and a simply one hour meeting to go over the separation agreement could have cured that and possibly saved you thousands of dollars over the upcoming years. Was it worthwhile to due it for free, by yourself? Even those of us who practice family law hire other attorneys to represent us, so...

    Yes, the warrant follows them around and on a 4th DUI most judges will leave the warrant in place FOREVER (I did as a judge). Why would any judge want to REWARD a person for not taking responsibility and accountability and running. If this person runs, they will not be serving 15 months, they will be serving more and they will have no chance of getting a sentence reduction, arguing for work release later or getting any break whatsoever from the judge. NOT a smart idea to run.

    It is extremely rare for the Denver DA's Office to offer a deferred judgment and sentence. So, doing so means that they have some weaknesses in the case. I would have an attorney review your case in order to determine as to whether you should accept it or not.

    No, the estate is responsible for the debts of the deceased. The one exception is if the creditor can show that the debt that was incurred was for the benefit of the spouse as well as the deceased. Understand that the payment on the life insurance will be untouchable and pass outside of the estate. The will might not need to be probated if there is less than $65,000 of assets that go through the estate. Those of us who do estate planning try to have houses, life insurance, bank accounts,...
