  • Can you help me get a script on a pretrial motion for defense on a murder case. its for mock-trial at my school.

    Rae concha was framed by Alex because Jason was getting adderall pills and over dose from the pills and alcohol. Now Rae is getting blamed for it.

    Ron’s Answer

    I coach a mock trial team in CA and I can tell you this question is not only inappropriate for this site but inappropriate for mock trial. Mock Trial Rules of ethics require the students do their own work, not that they go online to a legal site and ask a lawyer to draft a "script" for them. I am assuming you have a lawyer coach, work with him or her so you understand the issues, and draft your own argument, and learn how to present the issue. Getting something someone writes for you is going to sound awful, and your lack of understanding of the issues will be clear to any of the scorers watching your performance.

  • My boyfriend is being charged with therroist threats and stocking.

    He has two strikes on him, the da won't drop the charges. I'm the victim and regret what happened, should we hire an attroney they won't drop the charges.

    Ron’s Answer

    Your boyfriend is facing a potential life offense, I would suggest you hire the best attorney you can afford. Do some research, try and find one that our boyfriend will be comfortable with that works in the county where he is charged, and has a good reputation. This is incredibly serious situation, and your boyfriend is going to need legal help sooner rather than later.

  • How do I prepare for this case and should I be scared?

    Ron’s Answer

    You are entitled to a DMV hearing on your license and at that hearing witneses can appear telephonically. Request the hearing and get your doctor to either testify over the phone or prepare a written declaration that you ask the hearing officer to receive. You have to establish that your health will not impair your driving. I think you will have to concede the ticket or show up to court and hope the police officer will not show.

    Obviously all cases are fact specific, this is not legal advice that you can rely on. You are better served hiring a lawyer who can get into the specifics of your case. No attorney client relationship exists based on this answer.

  • I want to move out of state.

    my husband has left me, i have the child. i plan on moving out of state, does he have any right to tell me i can not leave. there is no custody in order...

    Ron’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    Your question implies that your husband just walked out and did not file a dissolution of marriage action, and also implies that you have not either. If that is the case, then there is no legal prohibition to you leaving the state. You should know that if your husband files a dissolution action against you that a court could compell you to return to the state and deal with the dissolution and child custody issues in the child's home state. It woudl be a good idea to nofity your husband that since he has left you, that it has become necessary to relocate to the other state in the best interest of your child. Let him know when you inform him that your relocation is permanent. When you get where you are going talk to a family law lawyer in that state about filing for dissolution and child custody in that state, and find out the earliest time you could do so, and then do so when appropriate time has passed.

  • How do i get my gun back after it was used as evidence in a trial?

    gun was stolen from my house in Ca. used in an incident in Texas. texas police told me i would get it back after trial. 10 yrs ago still waiting

    Ron’s Answer

    You will never get this gun back if it's been ten years unless someone in law enforcement decides to help you get it back, assuming it still exists. I can not imagine you the statue of limitations for a law suit still exists after ten years, so you will have no legal recourse. Unfortunately after ten years unless a prosecutor or cop who worked on the case decides to help you get your gun back you will never see it again.

  • Review Hearing Domestic Violence - What to expect

    My now exgf was convicted of felony domestic violence against me and is on 3 yrs felony probation. I worked a plea where she goes to rehab for 3 months to clean up off meth/alcohol. The violence continued a month after release which made me kick h...

    Ron’s Answer

    First I don't understand your statement you worked a plea. If you are the victim of the violence you should not have "worked" anything.
    Second, the penalty depends on your county, usually when probation no jail is tried and fails the most likely alternative is jail in order to persuade compliance. If she has not been to jail my guess is somewhere between 10 and 30 days would be likely. However, before that happens the prosecutor has to violate her probation.
    On another note if she is truly your ex and you want nothing to do with her you should not be involved in her case.. Why do you care? Let her deal with her own issues and do not involve yourself.

    good luck Ron Bamieh

  • I'm going to court for the 4th time trying to get a restraining order on my soon to be x husband.

    He is fighting the restraining and has a attorney.. This will be the 3 rd time in court.. I have no council because I have no money and can't afford it. I have pics of bruises and text messages from him as proof.. This man has hurt me emotionally ...

    Ron’s Answer

    If you filed for divorce you can make an application for attorney fees, and if depending on your respective finances a court could award you fees that your husband has to pay that you could use for your family law case. If your county has a self help center for family law they could assist you.
    If you are forced to litigate the domestic violence restraining order yourself here are some tips on how to do so.
    1. first keep it simple. You only need to produce evidence to show that it's more likely than not that he used force or violence against you. If you have a witness who saw him do so subpoena that witness to come to court to testify to that fact - what he or she saw. If you have a witness who heard him be abusive verbally to you (any threat of violence) subpoena that witness. Witness can only testify to what he or she saw, that would also include you. You are also allowed to testify to what your husband said that either you or the witness heard.
    2. do not be overly defensive. If the attorney for your husband makes allegations that are false, just say that's not true. do not try and explain all the reasons that it's not true. Never helps to be defensive.
    3. When you testify do not testify to all the bad things your husband did to you, take one to three of most clear acts of violence or abuse that are corroborated by the pictures and texts and stop there. You don't need every bad act he did during the marriage.
    4. One of the reasons it's good to have a lawyer do this for you is because most people get emotional when they work on their own case. Try and keep (as hard as it will be) your emotions out of it.

    Good luck Ron Bamieh

  • Can I use my cell phone to record the things my ex says to me when we are exchanging the kids? He is abusive & I am afraid.

    My ex cusses at me and calls me names in front of our kids during the exchange of the kids and then turns around and says I'm crazy and he didn't say anything mean . I know the recordings are not admissible in court but I feel like I need to reco...

    Ron’s Answer

    You are not allowed to record without a person's knowledge in California. If you have a court order that you can than you can, however if you just tell your ex that you are now recording to document his abusive behavior you can do that legally. However you can not do so secretly without his knowledge.

    Ron’s Answer

    You don't say if your ex is your former boyfriend or husband. If ex husband the dog is community property and your husband cannot give it away. If the dog was purchased or obtained during a dating relationship, you have just as good claim to that dog as your ex. I would let your ex's friend know in writing the dog is yours and he is stay off your property. If he wants to sue you for the dog, you'll be fine.
