    I was driving home and hit by a driver who was making a left turn. the accident was her fault. I was in the car with my fiance and my 5 week old daughter. The air bags did not deploy in the accident. After I was hit I got out of the car to get in ...

    Jamal’s Answer

    Most personal injury law firms, including us, work on contingency fee basis, meaning that there will be no charge for legal services unless there is a successful recovery obtained from the at-fault parties insurance company. So you don't pay anything out of pocket. Your legal fees and case costs are taken out of the settlement when the case gets resolved.
    It would be in your best interest to retain a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.

  • In the state of Washington is an expert affidavit required before filing a lawsuit against a doctor?

    the lawsuit would be about a privacy violation and failure to inform of diagnosis and giving treatment that caused more harm, for their financial gain, so maybe also fraud

    Jamal’s Answer

    No. Once upon a time it used to be a requirement. But it is no longer the case. You can file a medical malpractice suit without having an expert affidavit. But keep in mind that you WILL need an expert to testify at some point during the litigation.
    Medical malpractice cases are very complex and you might be better off hiring an attorney to help you.

  • The doctor made mistake during the procedure what I should do.?

    I live in lynnwood wa

    Jamal’s Answer

    You should definitely contact a medical malpractice lawyer. These cases are highly complex and you will need another doctor to testify that (a) your doctor was at fault (the care provided fell below the "standard of care" applicable to similar doctors) and (2) that the doctor's treatment of you caused your injuries.

  • I just got a school zone ticket in the mail, going 28 in a 20, brake lights visible in the pictures. how can i reduce the cost?

    the camera got me as i was slowing down to the 20 mpg, and my brake lights are clearly visible in the pictures. I also take that route to work in the morning and never have a problem going the speed limit, just wasn't paying attention i guess. The...

    Jamal’s Answer

    Judges and prosecutors are not so lenient on school zone speeding violations. You definitely need to hire a traffic attorney who can negotiate with the prosecutor to get the infraction reduced to non-moving violation or get it dismissed. I do not recommend mitigation (reducing the fine) because your infraction will go on your driving record and most likely you will end up paying higher insurance rate.

    I agree Mr. Earl in that you can always ask the judge. Whether it will be granted will depend on the judge. And you may be able to convert all or some of your fines into community service hours.

  • Immigration problem. I am a Chinese citizen studying in United States with F1 student visa.

    I am a Chinese citizen studying in United States with F1 student visa. I was arrested by Seatte police on November 27th and I am facing the charge of domestic violence. However, I have long ago booked ticket flying back to China on December 13th f...

    Jamal’s Answer

    I agree with Mr. Shusterman that you should not have any problem at the port of entry. And although the decision to issue a student visa is highly discretionary, U.S. embassies are encouraged to re-issue visas to returning students. So you shouldn't have any problem renewing your student visa.

  • Got into an accident was cited for DUI but was realeased from hospital with no info. What do I do now?

    The officer read me my maranda rights when I was in ambulance. They drew blood at the hospital but now I have no info on my case or anything. They didn't punch my license or take it. What do I do now?

    Jamal’s Answer

    You should definitely hire a criminal defense/DUI attorney as soon as possible. You will most likely be prosecuted for DUI and you need an attorney to start working on your case right away.

    Jamal’s Answer

    He should not have any problem since he has not been convicted of any crime. However, the decision of whether or not to issue a student visa is highly discretionary. So if the consular officer finds out about the domestic violence charge, this may affect his/her decision.

  • My green card expired 4 months ago. I'm eligible for naturalization. Can I apply for naturalization?

    Do I have to apply for new green card first? Is the four months past expiration of green card a probrem?

    Jamal’s Answer

    Generally you must be a permanent resident for 5 years before becoming eligible for naturalization. There are some exceptions however. The expiration of your green card does not mean that your permanent residency status has expired. So you should be able to apply for naturalization without having to renew your green card.
    Good luck.

  • Cited for Negligent Driving in the Second Degree for 99 in a 65 MPH Zone, no SMD tag/serial in the ticket

    1. Date of alleged infraction: 11/23/2012 2. Violation code: 46.61.525 Negligent driving in the second degree I have attached the following: 1. Full ticket report including officer's sworn statement that I obtained from public records (not ...

    Jamal’s Answer

    Maybe. I say maybe for two reasons. (1) For negligent driving, the speed of your vehicle is not the only determining factor. It's not a speeding ticket. It's the totality of circumstances that matter. (2) Although SMD tag is not included, the officer's speed estimation based on his training and experience will be taken into account.
    One good argument does not always cut it in traffic ticket cases. You are better off hiring a traffic ticket lawyer to fight this.
    Good luck.
