  • Do I have a case?

    I used an over the counter foot lotion on 4/9/16. And on 4/12 went to the doctors. l suffered a sever allergic reaction on my lower legs in my vascular system. I have extremely painful and deep wounds. I was in the hospital over 2 weeks. Currentl...

    Michael’s Answer

    You may have something. Secure the lotion bottle, continue getting medical treatment, and seek a consult from a lawyer that practices either medical malpractice, drug liability, or products liability. In fact, if I were you I would Google the name of the lotion and then put in something like "allergic reaction lawyer." Good luck!

  • May CT suspend my license in 2016 for a DUI arrest in 6-2014 that resulted in a "wet reckless" conviction in CA in 3-2015?

    Do you know the complexity of the query you pose? You are asking a question which requires research of multiple states laws and DMV regulations and to research the parody between the statutes and states. No way a lawyer here is going to spit out an answer because it's impossible to answer without doing a lot of research. Go hire a lawyer to give you a formal legal opinion.

  • I received a summons, can a company who is running a background check find this and not hire me because of it?

    I was in a park holding an alcohol beverage and the officer stated she just wanted to make an example out of me. I took the summons so that she would not ticket my organization hosting the cookout at the park as she had threatened. I am just worri...

    Michael’s Answer

    A record is not created upon getting a ticket or being arrested. The record is created when you are CONVICTED of what the police accused you of doing. Once you are convicted even if the conviction is sealed with technology today it is easy to find out someone's criminal conviction record. And an employer can refuse to hire someone for that or any reason. So the best thing for you to do is to retain counsel and fight to have it dismissed.

  • Do I need a lawyer for a fishing violation summons?

    I dropped some friends off to go fishing today, when I picked them up, they had brought an undersized fish with them into my vehicle without my knowledge. The fish and game warden stopped me and asked if I had any fish and I told them no. They pro...

    Michael’s Answer

    Next time, rather than lie to the police say "I don't answer questions," and if they ask for consent to search say "I don't consent to searches." Whether or not you are criminally liable for the undersized fish depends upon (1) whether liability attaches to only those who caught it or merely being in possession of it, and (2) if it is mere possession then being the driver & owner of the car only creates a rebuttable presumption of possession. Other surrounding issues turn on whether the search of the vehicle was legal. Inasmuch as this can be a crime and literally thousands of dollars in fines I highly suggest that you retain counsel.

  • Any flat rate lawyers?

    Hello, I received 2 tickets back in 2010 that I was completely unaware of until recently while I was paying a ticket in a different town. One ticket was for driving while suspended for a second DUI and the second was driving without insurance. I p...

    Michael’s Answer

    First off, because you were charged with driving while suspended you are charged with a crime and the uninsured charge can get your license revoked. You have a fairly straight forward defense - an identification issue. Although a powerful defense, it is difficult to execute upon. I mean, you don't just waltz into court and get the cop to testify to the fact that "...it was not me who he issued the tickets to..." For him to give that testimony he would be admitting he was negligent in his duties, as he failed to notice the photo on the license and you were not one in the same. There are many things you have to do to assert an identification case. For example, have you (1) reported your license stolen or lost; (2) reported the false identification of you to the police and obtained a police report; (3) given the police leads as to whom could have done this. Also, have you found out who the vehicle in question was registered to?

    You are clearly over simplifying the predicament you are in. You need legal help. Heavy duty legal help that comes with a price tag of way more than $300.00 per appearance. This is not the kind of case that is wrapped up in a single court appearance. No lawyer is going to take your case for $300, or $300 an appearance. It's time to break open the piggy bank and call some lawyers that specialize in this kind of work and then when you find someone you trust pay the fee without attempts to negotiate or complain about the price. Just hire the right lawyer by handing over your cash, like you would if you were buying a gallon of milk. Because you need the RIGHT LAWYER for this case, not the CHEAP LAWYER. Good luck!

  • Can I sue a dentist for irreversible damage?

    I went in to have a chipped front tooth fixed. The result is that it is now shorter and the excess thickness has caused the tooth to push forward from closing mouth on top of lower teeth. I normally use aspen dental in my hometown location but due...

    Michael’s Answer

    Your statement fails to express what, if anything, you believe the dentist did wrong. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that you do not have a case, it's just that you do not allege that the dentist did anything wrong or which caused the problem. Google around for a lawyer that specializes in dental malpractice. I am sure you can find one here on AVVO as well. Good luck!
