  • I'm going to litigation. Can I fire my attorney. And will it be hard for an attorney to pick up my case

    Stephen’s Answer

    You can generally always fire your attorney. You may owe him for the work he has already performed, though. And how hard it will be for a new attorney to "pick up" your case depends on how long before the next litigation event (hearing, trial, etc.) they will have to prepare and how complicated your case is.

  • Pregnant wife rear-ended, no injuries, car repaired. Do I need to go further?

    Stephen’s Answer

    I would certainly seek the advice of an attorney. Its possible that there may be something that you've overlooked, or perhaps you would be able to easily get a settlement for the pain she was in, even though the duration was short.

  • In 2007, A doctor in Houston, TX punctured my spinal sac while injecting a steriod. May I sue for medical malpractice?

    Stephen’s Answer

    Maybe. Maybe not. I would need to look at the exact type of procedure you were having done before I would be able to fully assess whether or not a punctured spinal sac was within the normal risks of the procedure.

  • What to do if lawyer and her office keep giving the run around once asked for money back?

    Stephen’s Answer

    You stated "Papers still have yet to be typed up to my knowledge" and then later stated "She has rescheduled my court date twice." You wouldn't have court dates if your papers weren't filed. That said, you should contact another lawyer and get that lawyer to get your file and your refund for you.

  • I just recieveda judgment debtor summons with an attached paper of judgment debtor rule. What can they do?

    Stephen’s Answer

    Take your possessions and money from you is the short answer. You should contact a lawyer to attend the JD rule with you and look through all the papers and bank statements they likely asked you to bring to the hearing. Do NOT skip the hearing, as you will likely then have an arrest warrant issued for you.
