    You're probably not going to jail. I just represented a client with a 25 year old felony, which we resolved with a simple misdemeanor and a few hundred dollar fine. Your problems are so fixable. Call my office for a free consult. We can point you in the right direction!

    I'm sorry to hear about your accident. How are you doing now? Let me point out that you should absolutely consult with a Personal Injury attorney about this. These can be complicated claims, and the insurance company has teams of lawyers to throw roadblocks up in front of you, so that they don't have to pay you. To answer your question, you (again, I suggest you use a lawyer) would make the claim against the driver's personal insurance and the cab company's insurance carrier. Really, there'...

    My colleague is correct: you can make a claim against the guy's insurance company despite your license status. There are a couple of things to consider, however. You can still get charged with Driving While License Suspended (DWLS), or cited for No Valid Operators License (NOVOL) and No Proof of Insurance. DWLS is a gross misdemeanor, which may or may not require jail time and result in further suspension. You should call a lawyer to discuss your licensing issues. NOVOL is a traffic...

    You should definitely speak with a lawyer as soon as you can. Most of us will speak with you for free and can tell you about the software systems used by insurance companies to determine what you're owed following an accident. The settlement value of a claim is basically based on key words and codes related to the accident, your injuries, treatment type and length, medications, and attorney reputation, which the adjuster will enter into a computer like Colossus, or one of its analogs. These...

  5. Can I remove a felony from 20 years ago if I have had no law/legal issues since then? (Washington State) What is the process?

    You can do it by yourself, but a lot of people start the process and then call us to finish things up if there are difficulties. Here's the general process: Go to WSP's website and click on the Washington Access To Criminal History (WATCH) tab and order your criminal history. If your conviction was in King County, go to King County Superior Court's Forms page and go to the restoration forms. They are pretty self explanatory. Fill them out and file them with the court and serve a copy on the...

    Don't speak to police, or anyone other than an attorney. You have already admitted to the following crime: RCW 9A.52.120 Computer trespass in the second degree. (1) A person is guilty of computer trespass in the second degree if the person, without authorization, intentionally gains access to a computer system or electronic database of another under circumstances not constituting the offense in the first degree. (2) Computer trespass in the second degree is a gross misdemeanor....

    Sorry to hear about your husband's legal woes. Here's how things are going to go down: Arraignment: The court must arraign your husband within 72 hours of his arrest. This is his chance to enter a plea of not guilty. The court will order conditions of release which will include a no contact order with you. I don't know whether Lacey, or Thurston County District Court has a specific bail policy for DV cases. Some courts set minimum bail amounts ($500-$750) for Assault 4 DV and similar cases....

    The above gentleman are correct. One witness can be enough to convince a prosecutor to charge you. Whether the prosecutor can prove that charge is another thing. Is the witness credible? Did the witness know what he was seeing? There might also be proof issues. Can the prosecutor that the spent casings had anything to do with you? Talk to a lawyer ASAP. Most attorneys will speak with you for free. Incidentally, juveniles automatically qualify for a public defender, so you won't have to...
