    Depends... If they are escorts that do sexual things and you know about it, the answer is YES, it's illegal and it actually carries some significant punishment in terms of co-conspiracy when added to a pimping charge if there is a "leader". If it's just driving strippers that are operating legally, you should be fine. If you are getting paid as an employee you are fine, if and independent contractor, then technically you are in business for yourself and must have a business license (...

  2. Payment of Civil Demand (Shoplifting)

    One other thing to add to Attorney Marshall's answer and great guide I might add (I'm referring my clients to it to save time) - if they call you, don't take the call (they have the phone # from the check). Final thing - if you follow the guide - don't let it keep you up at night. It's their problem now, not yours. Matthew Williamson

  3. I just received a Notice of Levy under the Writ of Execution, what should I do? I do not have money for an attorney.

    If they have actually obtained a judgment and now are collecting on it - I'd expect them to try and take money from your accounts and attach your wages. If you think they may know your account #s, then I would end up keeping them empty of any money you can't afford to lose. (pay bills by money order). Can't do much about going after you wages - but you are allowed to keep a certain amount. Do they have a judgment? What is it for? If you can't afford an attorney - try to give as much...

  4. Roman Polanski arrested for having sex with 13 year old in 1977

    In order: 1. It's not up to the victim to decide if Mr. Polanski should continue to be prosecuted, it's up to the DA's office. 2. He'd have to have not just an American lawyer, but a California lawyer or a lawyer from a different state that has special permission to be in a California court. 3. I doubt it is a ploy 4. Not a question - but if it were your 13 year old daughter that had been sexually assaulted, would you want the DAs to just let it go because the person "hid out in the...

    See a malpractice attorney ASAP before you lose any rights you might have. Especially see if you can find one that has gone against Kaiser in the past. The attorney will have a doctor look over the records and decide if you have a case. Good luck with your situation and I hope you will be better medically in the future. Take Note: Common Sense and this environment (the internet) require me to remind everyone that this answer isn't legal advice, and shouldn't be relied upon. Remember-...

    First of all, the local custom is 5 years probation, not 3. Part of your punishment will depend on your age - also how the accident was handled, and finally was it a home fence vs a fence in the middle of nowhere. There is also your comments to the police and how long of time passed between the accident and the time you came into contact with the police. If you are going to get an attorney, get one that is local so they know what is going to happen. You will be in front of one of two...

    Besides both of your incomes, another major factor is how long you have been married and is there a valid pre-nup in place. Good luck with the situation. Matthew Williamson

    I agree with Attorney Nash's answer - one other option is to go to an office that does both in the area (Immigration and DUI) - BUT don't forget you only have 10 days (generally) for requesting a DMV hearing. If you don't request one, you may end up with a wet in criminal court (or better), but still have a DUI for civil purposes. You should consider contacting Mr. Nash or another local DUI attorney - our office offers both DUI and Immigration. Just remember not to wait too long or...

    First, you don't always need an attorney - depends on how much money is involved and the issues (if it's $2,000 max you're going to owe and no allegations of fraud - under reporting, income, etc. and you haven't committed any crimes, etc), then you are probably fine because the costs of having an attorney present will probably be more that what you owe. Second - to answer your question...don't volunteer anything! Read up on the rules of what they can and can't ask. Do NOT show up early (be...

    I've actually tried this issue before here in Santa Cruz. Be prepared to have to fight it. You win under the facts you site, however, they will bend over backwards to try and convince the judge or jury you were driving while under the influence. Good luck with your situation.
