  • Received a ticket for 26 miles over speeding limit in GA. If I do the Defensive Driving class, could the courts drop the charge?

    Emily’s Answer

    Completing the class would be very beneficial to you. You should also contact an attorney to discuss your case. Where I practice, courts typically require this class, especially for "super speeder" tickets. You may be able to get the speed reduced and the class would be helpful in doing so.

  • Is it legal for neighbors to dispose of grass clippings, branches, and dirt into a wooded area next to our property?

    Emily’s Answer

    I agree with the other attorneys, however, I would start off by trying to talk with your neighbors. Are you on friendly terms with your neighbors? Why don't you call a neighborhood meeting regarding this matter or just telephone them. If I was in your shoes, I would contact your neighbors. They may not know that you have a problem with what they are doing. If the problem continues, you can take further action. You may want to contact the owner of the property next to you just to let them know what's going on.

  • How do I go about having divorce papers served to my spouse in South Carolina?

    Emily’s Answer

    I would recommend hiring an attorney or at the very least, having a consultation. First, you need to determine the state that you need to file for divorce. After that, you will be able to determine how to get your spouse served. Note: In Georgia, there is a mandatory 30 day waiting period prior to your divorce being finalized.
