  1. Can a person file chapter 13 bankruptcy after having a chapter 7 discharged

    Answered about 5 years ago.

    Generally you are able to file Chapter 13 bankruptcy at this point, however you will not receive a Chapter 13 discharge before 4 years after the date of filing your original Chapter 7 bankruptcy. As you are probably aware, you also cannot file another Chapter 7 bankruptcy until at least 8 years have lapsed since your last filing date. I am a Los Angeles Bankruptcy lawyer, so you should consult with a Maryland bankruptcy attorney for more legal advice specific to the particular facts of your...

    Your friend made a promise to the court to pay the DUI fees. I don't believe that there is a statute of limitations defense to the court's attempt to collect the fee, however you should contact a civil attorney who deals with debt collection to double check.

  3. California 242-243(e)1 charges filed. What can I do to assure the city attorney he shouldn't drop it to a 242 as a plea bargain?

    As a former DA who handled these types of cases, the first piece of advice I would tell you is to call the Los Angeles County City Attorney and get a victim advocate. The victim advocate will be able to keep you updated on the developments in the case and will know what the status of the case is. Often times you can make an appointment to meet with the victim advocate, investigator and prosecutor assigned to the case. This helps in that you are able to make sure all the facts are discovered....

  4. Need lawyers take care of speeding ticket

    There should be a qualified traffic ticket attorney in your area. Do a quick search on avvo.com or google and you will find many Utah based attorneys who will likely take your case. There are many defenses available to you and since you no doubt have a commercial license, it would be worth it to fight this ticket and avoid getting points on your driving record. I am a Los Angeles Lawyer and handle traffic tickets in California.

    Get an attorney and have them appear for you pursuant to 977, even if it's just to continue your arraignment until you can (if you want to) show up.

  6. What is the usual fine for being issued a ticket for throwing a cigarette out the window while driving in California?

    You can always ask the judge for alternative sentencing, however it really depends on the judge and the facts of your case. In general, when you have unpaid fines you are able to serve them in jail or work them off with community labor at a rate provided for by the court. It won't hurt if you ask the judge for more trash picking time (community labor) but the discretion remains with the judge. Show up early, explain that it was your first offense (hopefully) and give him the details of your...

  7. Is there a way to satisfy front license plate requirement without drilling into bumper?

    I've seen this problem with Corvettes and other sports car owners who don't want to drill into the front end of these fine cars. You inclinations is correct, as they probably didn't design you car to have bolts drilled into the front of the bumper. I have seen owners adhere plates to the front of their car with adhesive foam or a small amount of velcro with an adhesive base. This way you don't physically damage the car and the adhesive would come off rather easily with a small amount of goo...

    I'm sure you can find a good DUI/DWI attorney who can set up a payment program for you. Many law offices accept several forms of payment including most credit cards like visa, mastercard, amex and discovery. They will likely need some form of payment to begin work on your case and then they will probably be able to work with you to pay their fee over time. I would encourage you to devote some time to searching on the internet and contacting several DUI attorneys. I have some good advice on...

    There are many excellent court appointed lawyers who work diligently for their clients. The real question is if you are eligible for the services of court appointed counsel or if you need to hire a private attorney. This is based on your income and ability to pay. The court will look at this to see if you qualify.
