    According to the federal government - no. The feds consider it illegal regardless of the card. For California, it's going to depend on the terms of your probation. Often, one of the terms of probation for DUIs is "don't consume drugs or alcohol in any level unless prescribed by a doctor." Unfortunately for medical marijuana card holders, marijuana is not "prescribed," but rather "recommended." Thus, if that is one of the terms of your probation, it would be illegal to smoke. You would have...

    There's a lot that goes into that answer, but for grand theft and embezzlement, the max time is three years. Depending on the third thing, there are different max times for different types of fraud and identity theft. But time can be added on or taken away for number reasons, including at what stage of the proceeding he is found or pleads guilty, what he is found or pleads guilty to, any enhancements, any prior convictions, and any mitigating circumstances. To figure out the max time, you'll...

    You need an employment/labor attorney. When searching through employment attorneys, just make sure they have experience with SDCERA and CalPers (if they have it, they'll most likely list it on their website or attorney profile).

    You might need to be more specific with what you mean by personal photos. Often times people have embarrassing information about us. Simply because they have released that information, however, does not necessarily mean they are guilty of a crime. Instead, they could be liable under a civil law suit for a violation to your rights to privacy - in this case the tort of public disclosure of private facts. If there is more information and you are certain that he committed a crime, call the...

    You're going to get the ever famous lawyer answer - it depends. For one, it seems they're mad about the use of the character. This would seem more a trademark infringement claim than a copyright infringement claim, in which case we need to know if they registered a trademark, who used the characters first, and, if they did use it first and trademarked it, how similar it is. Also, costumes are protected under copyright, but again, we'd need to know what their copyright is, who used it first,...

    If you did write a new accompaniment to the lyrics (as opposed to harmonizing an already created melody or mimicking something that the singer had already produced), you should consider trying to copyright the music that you wrote.

    Yeah, don't hire students for legal advice. That's practicing law without a license - something which is illegal in every state in the country. I know my firm in California offers flat fee pricing for small matters, which would keep the costs down. You could look around New York to see if any firms offer similar pricing structures.
