    Many police reports are made and many charges are filed based on allegations made by a single person that an assault took place. The police, prosecutor and, ultimately jury (if the case proceeds to trial) will need to look at the complaining witness' motive to lie, history of making false acccusations or telling lies, what may be happening in the family law case (did the accusation come up right before a hearing about who gets custody?), evidence or lack of evidence regarding injuries, and...

    You should find an attorney who has experience defending drug cases in both state and federal court. If the other two people charged were charged in state court, it is likely you will also be charged in state court unless your possession in this instance is part of a larger drug distribution ring.

    It is always a tricky situation when someone is arrested for a domestic violence offense and the alleged victim does not want a no contact order or wants the charges dismissed. He needs a lawyer experienced in domestic violence cases. I have also found in handling many of these types of cases that the case can benefit from having the alleged victim represented as well. The lawyer for the alleged victim can help make it clear to the court and prosecutor that the protected person does not want...

    Yes. You should retain an attorney to contact the Court that issued the warrant and set it on for a hearing to quash the warrant. The Court may quash the warrant and release you on personal recognizance or may require you to post some amount of bail since you previously failed to appear. That will depend on your history of failing to appear for court, the reason you failed to appear and the nature of the charge, as well as whether or not the Court believes you pose a flight risk. You did...

    I agree that you should speak with several attorneys about how they would handle your case and meet with at least a couple before you decide who to hire. You should ask questions about their experience with drug cases and experience representing people with immigration concerns as well as their trial experience. In addition, you mention that the drugs were not yours. This may mean that investigation needs to be done to convince the prosecutor that this is the case. You should also explore...

    Your mother needs an experienced criminal defense attorney who has handled domestic violence cases. The prosecutor will not dismiss the case just because you want it dismissed, and the no contact order is imposed while these cases are pending as a matter of course, so your wish not to have it imposed will likely not be honored, especially at the beginning of the case. Nobody who reads your question can evaluate the quality of the evidence here and the likelihood that the case will eventually...

    The state sentencing system for felonies takes into account a person's criminal history and the seriousness of the new offense or offenses. Nobody can predict what the outcome of your case will be. While the right retained counsel should have more time to spend on your case than a public defender, hiring private counsel does not guarantee a "win" or any specific outcome. Experienced and competent counsel will evaluate the evidence against you and analyze whether there is a legal or factual...

    The value of the items is connected to how the crime is charged. I would suggest consulting with an experienced attorney about this issue because your attorney may be able to negotiate a resolution of the case after showing that the value of the property is now a lot less than what the prosecutor believes it is.

    You should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney on this matter. On shoplifting cases, I normally prefer that my clients not pay in response to the store's civil enforcement efforts, because I may be able to use the promise of payment later as a bargaining chip to resolve the criminal case.
