There are no trespassing signs, the sheriff claims they called and came to the house before towing my vehicle on my property but that is untrue, my wife was home all day.
I am assuming that the sheriff did not charge them with trespassing? If so, you can contact the sheriff and ask that the trespasser be charged with a criminal offense. If the person(s) is charged, you should then be eligible to receive restitution pursuant to any conviction or settlement reached.
You can also sue the trespasser civilly. You should consult with a local lawyer to discuss the specific facts of the case and the damages that you have suffered as a result.
Also, your question regards more of a civil tort claim than a criminal defense matter, so I will ensure that the applicable areas of law are flagged in your question.

On Saturday Night there was a party and my uncle got drunk and was just sitting down waiting for his brother so he could drive since he was sober. While he was waiting with his uncle 2 guys came and punched my uncle in the face without reason, nei...
I agree with the previous answers. In addition, and in the event that a prosecutor presses charges, your uncle may be able to recover some of his damages via restitution that the attackers may be ordered to pay. Your uncle should make a list of damages that he can think of. He should consult with a personal injury lawyer in the event that a civil suit is warranted.See question
I was convicted in 2008 and am planning on looking for better employment. Last I knew background checks go back for 7 years. But I'm unsure that if I do apply at places that require background checks if it would even be worth my time.
Some background checks go back for limited amounts of time, while others go longer. The Idaho repository will show state crimes that you've been convicted of longer than seven years, so regardless of what you are asked, a potential employer may be able to see convictions and other court cases that you have been involved in for much longer.
You didn't mention what you were convicted of, but the best advice I can give you is to be honest about your record. Whatever the conviction was, if you haven't been in trouble since, the conviction may not be as bad as you are concerned about. Some employers just want to see if you will be honest about your past.

I filed 1 intent to lien, the couple came in and asked to sign a promise to pay promissory note. they didn't pay it,either. I filed the intent to sale notice and 2 days later I get the Bankrupt notice. Can I file a challenge to discharge against t...
You stated that the couple came in and asked to sign a promissory note; but you did not state whether or not they actually signed it. The answer is an important fact for you.
Assuming that the couple signed it, how long before filing the bankruptcy did they do so? If the time gap was very small, they may have intended to never pay you. That fact will matter if you file a motion to lift the bankruptcy stay.
Also, did the couple file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13?
CAUTION - there are several pitfalls that you will want to avoid if you proceed with a motion, proof of claim or adversary proceeding. You should consult with a skilled bankruptcy lawyer who represents creditors as opposed to going it alone or you could lose even more money in trying to pursue a remedy in the bankruptcy court.See question

The cop was trying to set you up. Unfortunately, even if he broke a law, he will not be charged. His behavior is unconscionable for a public servant, but that will not help you.
Hire a skilled criminal defense lawyer ASAP! That should be your priority because it is what you need.

I agree with my colleagues' answers regarding the search. In regards to your comment about a lawyer wanting to charge you $1500 to represent you, you should jump on that offer if you believe that the lawyer will represent you well. You pay a lawyer for his or her time, skills, and expertise. Your lawyer had nothing to do with the facts of your situation, so why should your lawyer work for so little when he or she didn't create the mess that your in?

You need a lawyer, plain and simple. You are facing a felony and now you are at risk of losing three jobs.

I was arrested and released on bail on a felony charge on Feb 17. On Apr. 2, I was arrested and booked and released on misdemeanor charges... Now I'm going to court, and no one has contacted me but the repository says motion for pretrial release a...
When you were released on bond after being charged with the felony, one of your conditions for release was to not commit anymore crimes. Although you have not been convicted of the recent misdemeanor that you were charged with, prosecutors view any new charges since you were released as though you violated the terms of your pretrial release order.
Bond is supposed to be for ensuring that you appear at the hearings for your court case, but too often it is used as punishment. The motion to amend your pretrial release and to increase bail means that the prosecutor is asking that you post additional bond before being released again.
The wisest thing that you can do right now is to hire a skilled criminal defense lawyer. The prosecutor is working against you; and you need a skilled advocate to work for you. If you can't afford a lawyer, ask the court to appoint the public defender.See question

Try contacting the local police department in the place where the car is being held. The person holding the car will likely not want to push the issue further if police are involved.
Alternatively, if the police refuse to get involved, contact a lawyer local to the area where the car is located to seek help.See question

Your son definitely needs a lawyer. A skilled criminal defense lawyer will review all available evidence, including but not limited to the reason for the stop and the facts that lead to the charge. There may be suppression issues that a lawyer can identify. In the event that the stop and charge were legal, a lawyer should be able to negotiate a favorable plea agreement to minimize the impact on your son's life as he moves forward.
