I have previously received two tickets in my life. One for littering from a moving car, one for open container of alcohol on the street (not in a car just walking). I also was given a ticket for public drunkenness but was told i would receive fu...
The short answer is "Yes" with the facts as presented. If you cannot afford a lawyer, you may qualify for a public defender. But you might try talking to an attorney on Avvo. Most of us offer a free consultation.See question
Proof of claim was for $38,000 but additional $11,600 was due to fraud , misrepresentation, dishonesty of debtor .Local Police will not file theft report . No Avvo lawyer has really answered question .l need opinion of criminal lawyer.
With all due respect, you have not provided any facts to support your "proof of claim..... additional.... due to fraud..." to allow any determination of criminal activity. Unless you can provide the facts to support fraud or theft charges, no one can help you. However, if the local police won't file criminal charges, you have the option to go to the District Attorney's Office and try to file a private criminal complaint.See question
I, a minor, may have concealed and shoplifted nicotine lozenges from A large store such as target. I was with my dad who didn't know obviously. He bought something and we walked out. No one followed me through or outside the store. However I just ...
My colleagues are right on the money with their advice. Talk to your Dad. Then you and you Dad call a lawyer who is familiar with the local court and the police. ( I will assume that the "Target" is in Montgomery County.) DO NOT just plead guilty if you get served with a citation.See question
More than six month past by since I received notarized expungements court order. All agencies complied with a court order with exception of PA State Police. What should I do and how to make PSP complete the process? Who should be able to help me? ...
You can call your attorney. Or, if you did not have an attorney, you can try to contact the PSP records bureau. They are generally swamped with expungement requests, so it takes time.See question
I'm wondering if the judge has room for any leniency in the 60-90 day jail sentence. I am not familiar with mandatory. My boyfriend has a DUI suspension. One night I refused to drive home on a last leg of a long trip. I was sick and cranky an...
The judge has no discretion as to the penalty (jail time). The best way you can help him is to retain an experienced criminal/traffic attorney who is familiar with the court be it Bucks or Montgomery County.See question

Unless there is something else you haven't mentioned, you have nothing to lose by pleading NOT GUILTY. They have already assessed the maximum fine. You may want to consider retaining a lawyer to represent you.See question
I was pulled over on RT422 today for speeding. The trooper said I was going 80 on 55mph zone. He said he was following me for a while. No speed gun, no radar was used.... He issued a ticket 128.00, should I fight it?
Short answer is yes. Make a copy of the citation. On the original plead NOT GUILTY. Send the citation and a check for the fines plus $8 hearing fee. Call a lawyer who is experienced in these types of traffic cases.See question
I went through ARD.
It depends on who is hiring and the questions they ask you. If you successfully completed ARD in Bucks County, the charges will be automatically dismissed and your official record expunged. You will not have a conviction. The problem is that there are "third party" web sites that purport to research criminal records. They are usually inaccurate.See question
How can I find out how many cases my prospective lawyer has won vs. how many cases he has lost throughout his legal career ? Also, I would like to know what types of cases (EX: DUI's, Petty Theft, Drug Possession, etc.) that lawyer has had the ...
Mr. Walsh is correct. There is no "box score" for lawyers. Do you ask for a "cure" record from your doctor? If your prospective lawyer can give you such information, they are very inexperienced or less than honest. Either way, find another lawyer. Look for experience and ratings from peers and former clients and most important, what you think after meeting the lawyer.See question
