  • How can I get a ARD and a Dismissed DUI expunged? Can I do this myself? If I have to hire an Attorney how much would that cost?

    I have a record of 3 DUI's one back in 2006 finished a ARD program, one in 2009 that was dismissed because no evidence of any alcohol or drugs in my blood test & my last one was in 2011. I believe that I should be able to have 2 DUI'S Expunged bec...

    Stewart’s Answer

    I am uncertain how any of the three DUI’s will impact your nursing license. As for expungements, both the ARD and the dismissed charges are indeed expungable. Many attorneys charge a flat rate to draft a petition.

  • Can landlords fine tenants for infractions"?

    Last night we decided to BBQ using a small charcoal grill. We lit it at the end of the parking lot away from buildings. Less than 5 minutes after lighting manager came out and said "you have 5 minutes to put that out or you will be fined." We di...

    Stewart’s Answer

    If the landlord reserved the right to impose fines for certain things in the lease agreement, and you agreed to those terms as a condition of the rental, then yes. Otherwise, the landlord may not impose anything financial obligations outside of those in the lease. Moreover, the $1,200 sum seems both arbitrary and high. If this was done in retaliation, as you suspect, it could violate several laws and represent a breach of the lease agreement. Additionally, if the mouse infestation is not remedied, you may have a right to escrow rent until it is cleaned up or allocate rents toward an exterminator. Meet with a landlord tenant attorney to explore your rights and remedies

    Stewart’s Answer

    Paying the demand letter does not ensure that the matter won't proceed to criminal charges. It could also look like an admission of guilt. Hire a lawyer to assist with it. If you have been criminally charged, you will need that lawyer to guide you

    Stewart’s Answer

    It is possible you have a suit but more information would be needed to determine. Some potentially responsible parties would be the airbag manufacturer and installer, the operator of the vehicle, the owner of the vehicle, their insurance carriers, your carriers, the utility company that placed the pole, etc. Of course, the driving conditions and any contributions by you to the accident must be factored in.

  • Can my credit union place a block on my debit card if my car loan is one day late?

    Can my credit union place a block on my debit card if my car loan payment is 1 day late? Per my contract I have 15 days to pay.

    Stewart’s Answer

    It depends on what is stated in your loan documents. Credit unions often use cross-collateralization provisions (i.e. all of your loans with them are connected). Discuss this with the credit union or speak with an attorney.
