    Anthony’s Answer

    Are they licensed contractors? You can go to the City Consumer affairs office and file a complaint or if unlicensed go to the DA. Call 311 for more info. You could also hire a lawyer to sue for breach of contract. Good luck.

  • Should I get CPS involved

    I noticed on my daughters social media account that she posted it smelled like weed in her house. Her mother is not very cooperative in talking with me when it comes to concerns over my daughter and always tells me to not worry. Would it be appr...

    Anthony’s Answer

    CPS Referrals are usually anonymous and are not actually allegations but requests for investigation.
    Given the issues here a CPS referral while not required is certainly not a bad idea, especially if there are any other factors supporting the issue.

    Anthony’s Answer

    Chase is counting on someone not taking this b/c the amount is so low. That said you can bring it yourself in city or district court or if you can show Fraud, a lawyer may be interested in treble damages. Talk to State AG and contact State Banking Dept.

    People are getting tickets for obstructing sidewalks. They have no other options been doing this for 50 years

    Anthony’s Answer

    A number of these homes have inadequate driveways however the Village points out the need to put your vehicle in your garage. Sidewalk blocking is a safety concern. I do not find a right to park in your driveway to rise to a constitutional level to oppose the ordinence

  • What do I do if cps tries taking my children?

    My son's counselor has reported my husband with false alligations. How do I go about proving he's and my innocence

    Anthony’s Answer

    The burden of proof is on the agency, however it feels like you have the burden because people in the system feel like you are at the court of a reason. First thing you must do is ignore the community and courthouse scuttlebutt. Then make sure you have a really good family lawyer who knows his or her way around abuse and neglect cases. They may ask you and your husband to participate in counseling programs. Go only with your lawyers permission. Also do not talk about the case with anyone other than your spouse or your lawyers. No one else needs to know anything. Keep visits with your child happy and friendly and of course do not discuss the case with him either. Keep the faith. You do what your lawyer tells you, it should work out just fine. Good luck.

  • Can someone be charge with a gun that the police officer took during a search without warrant?

    My brother is charge with a gun that the police officer took from his house a year ago during a search without a warrant. Now a year later they raid his house again without a search warrant again and found no drugs or anything illegal but my broth...

    Anthony’s Answer

    Yes they can. They may have a hard time getting the charge to stick however after a suppression hearing. Your brother should make sure he has a good lawyer who is up on his criminal procedure. Conferencing with a civil rights lawyer wouldn't hurt for the second part of the case (suing the cops for violating his rights.) Check out the AVVO attorney's in your home area. I will bet you find a good group of Criminal Defense lawyers on here. Look for lawyers who belong to the NCACDL or the NACDL or are active in (not just members of but leaders of )the State Bar. Ask if they have ever handled a suppression hearing to suppress the proceeds of a bad search. Look to see what the other lawyers say about their work. See if they have ever lectured in CLE classes on the topic or written articles published on the issue. Then look for someone with at least 5 years experience and better if they have more. Why? Because gun cases are harder than most and you want someone who's experience level is up to the work.

  • Do I need an attorney for proving my innocence in a PRE-paid credit card charges?

    Anthony’s Answer

    You should hire a criminal lawyer. There are a bunch of good ones right in Dallas. You need to protect yourself from both legal charges and the credit card charges. Fraud is a very serious crime and it would make finding another job nearly impossible. Run do not walk to a good criminal lawyer with experience in handling White Collar crime. Good luck.

    Anthony’s Answer

    I mildly disagree. You have a eight to ab adversarial hearing on the document. Even if you consented you can appeal that you were not advised of the effects of the consent. Consent must be knowing and intelligent.
