  • A A co-worker grabbed my butt at work I filed a complaint about the incident and by two weeks I was fired what should I do?

    John’s Answer

    I have handled cases just like this over the years. I'd be happy to speak with you. In Missouri, an employer is prohibited from retaliating against an employee for complaining of sexual harassment. Based on the timeline, it looks that this may be the case.

  • Can i be arrested if my dui case from 2002 States completions not on file?

    John’s Answer

    There is a lot of information not included in your question that would be important to assessing the full situation. However, assuming that (1) you were placed on probation for a DWI, (2) you failed to timely complete the conditions thereof, (3) the court suspended your probation therefor during the probation period with the purpose of determining whether to revoke your probation, and (4) you failed to timely and/or properly respond thereto (i.e., to appear in court), then the court may have issued a warrant for your arrest for failing to so respond, which may remain outstanding for as long as it takes to force you to answer to the alleged probation violation. You should seek legal representation immediately for assistance in addressing any such issue.

  • Do I have a chance of getting these tickets dismissed? How can I deal with these traffic violations?

    John’s Answer

    I can understand your frustration. At the same time, if they're able to make their case, they're simply able to make their case. As with any traffic ticket, I highly recommend hiring a local attorney to work with the prosecutor to explain your situation and negotiate the best possible outcome for you, particularly as convictions for moving violations may greatly affect your driving privileges. I know that when I handle such cases, I work to try to get such charges amended to non-moving violations, if possible, and minimize fines. The idea is to keep your driving record clean to the extent possible and keep as much money in your pocket as possible rather than the government's. Best of luck to you, and I'm sorry to hear you have to deal with this.

  • After retaining a lawyer, is it normal for a lawyer to wait for charges to be filed before addressing pending charges?

    John’s Answer

    Ma'am,

    Based solely on the information provided, I can tell you that it is very common for an attorney to await the filing of charges and issuance of warrant in such a case prior to taking action related specifically to the criminal case. Still, there may be opportunity for your attorney to be gathering information and/or contesting a driver's license action prior to such time which could be beneficial to defending any charges ultimately brought. I wish you and your family the best of luck in the difficult and scary time.

  • If my manager is sexually harassed me what do I need to do?

    John’s Answer

    I have handled countless cases like yours, and I think the most important thought would be that a complaint needs to be made to the company ASAP. Typically, I help employees draft letters to submit to their employers to ensure that the company is aware of the situation and the severity thereof. As stated by other counsel, I think it best that you attempt to have an attorney do so to ensure that any such complaint is properly drafted to protect your rights and that it is submitted in a timely manner. I wish you the best of luck and am sorry to hear that you're facing such a situation.

  • What is the typical cost of a DWI in Missouri?

    John’s Answer

    I think, based on your question, that you need to decide if you want to hire the cheapest firm you can find that will treat this like a traffic ticket and plead you out without any fight whatsoever or if you want to hire a firm to fight for you, regardless of the results. Best of luck to you.
