    You need to provide your alibi information to his attorney.

  • Going to court tomorrow for 2nd dui. First was 1990, deferral, successful completion. reduced sentence or dismissal?

    Evading and resisting BS charges, some brutality from police and DOC.

    Ronnie’s Answer

    The first offense is not considered for sentencing as the court only looks back 7 years in situations like yours. Each case is different so this question is a bit too broad for concrete answer.

  • What is the best way to deal with a missed court date warrant 5 years after the court date?

    5 years ago when I was 19 I was given a court date for an underage drinking ticket. I didn't go and a warrant was issued. I am from Canada and I would like to return to the states soon so i need to know the best and easiest way to deal with this.

    Ronnie’s Answer

    Hire an attorney or pay the bond. But if your attorney files a motion to quash the bench warrant or if he/she can get the prosecutor to agree to getting rid of the warrant that would be better/cheaper.

    Ronnie’s Answer

    Negligent driving resolutions are common resolutions with BACs this low. I wouldn't worry too much. There is still a lot of work to do but I am confident that the right attorney can help achieve your goals.

  • If I am 15, and become pregnant from an 18 year old, but did not engage in sexual intercourse with him, can he be charged?

    Can I refuse DNA testing and refuse to tell who the father is? We honestly did not have sexual intercourse, so was no law broken? How can I protect him? Please give me the benefit of the doubt and help me to know how to protect him.

    Ronnie’s Answer

    Because he is not more than 48 months older than you there is no crime. The DNA testing will be important for parentage proceedings later.

  • Do personal injury attorneys prefer referral to chiropractors or orthopedic surgeons?

    Earlier today (Friday) I was getting off a city bus and the door closed on me. Now I've had a headache for hours, my neck and shoulder hurt,and my wrist/hand also hurts because I already have a condition called DeQuervains Disease (tenosynovitis)....

    Ronnie’s Answer

    I would prefer a specialist to a chiropractor in any case. The insurance company is going to have doctors with much higher degrees than chiropractors are going against you so it is wise to level the playing field. If you expect the best out of your resolution you need the best medical support. However, specialists are more expensive so be sure not to spend all your insurance proceeds on doctors. Each case is different, you need to talk to an attorney.

    I hit another car without auto insurance. I am on SSI and have a pension. Can they obtain a judgement against my pension if they sue me and can I file banko on that judgement?

    Ronnie’s Answer

    If you do not have the funds to pay the lien and if you want to drive again, many times bankruptcy is the only way to get the hold on your license removed.

  • I was an injured worker and closed my claim I have been having a hard time getting it reopened, How can I get this opened?

    I had a serious injury and took years to close my claim, something went terribly wrong and it links back to one of the surgeries I have. I have seen 4 doctors all which have found objective findings I am worse now then when I closed my claim. L&I ...

    Ronnie’s Answer

    Within 7 years of your closing your doctor needs to find that there was a worsening or aggravation of your condition. The Department will respond to the doctor's request. If it reopens, you can proceed without an attorney. If they deny your reopening then you need to preserve your appellate deadlines.
