    I agree with Mr. Kopelson. Meet with a lawyer before you take any action.

    There are time limitations involved in bring malpractice lawsuits, as there are with all types of lawsuits. But, there can be exceptions as well. I would encourage you to schedule an appointment with a medical malpractice attorney immediately. You have no time to waste, if you are ever going to take action. Only a very experience malpractice attorney can tell you if it is too late or not. Good luck.

    Bob’s Answer

    Pain clinics have come under increasing scrutiny in Georgia over the last few years. Unfortunately for the rest of the clinics, some were little more than "pill mills" that over prescribe people for a profit. As such, the legitimate doctors and clinics must be very careful about the numbers of prescriptions that they right. If possible, I would encourage you to try to find one doctor to oversee all of your treatments.

  • I have a FTA Bench warrant in KS. If I am detained in GA will I likely be arrested? If so, will I likely be extradited? In VA?

    FTA Bench warrant

    Bob’s Answer

    I agree with the prior answers, but just wanted to point out that the warrant will not just go away. You might want to talk with a lawyer in Kansas to see if something can be done to get the warrant lifted.

  • Will new changes regarding wiretapping by DEA to get federal approval affect any current cases where wiretapping was used?

    I noticed a few days ago, the newspaper reported there are new changes to how DEA get approval for wiretapping where they use to be able to get approval from the state court, they now must seek approval from senior federal prosecutors and then pre...

    Bob’s Answer

    I agree with the prior two answers. Let me add that Federal rules are in many ways different from State rules. So, hopefully your husband has an attorney who is experienced in Federal criminal cases. In example, the change in the wiretapping approval process will probably be considered procedural and thus, not retroactive. However, an attorney who is very experienced in the nuances of Federal defense might be able to dig deeper and find what problems the change was designed to address. In that way he or she might come up with new grounds to challenge the wiretaps in your husband's case. So, as the others have said, have your husband voice these questions to his lawyer.

  • How do I go about helping a friend who has been charged with 5 accounts of Aggravated Assault?

    Pleads not Guilty. The victims wish to have the charges dropped and has contacted the defense attorney multiple times but she ignores their calls. What can I do?

    Bob’s Answer

    Tell your friend to speak with his/her attorney about this issue. As was previously explained by others, the State decides whether to go forward with the charges, not the victim. Your friend should inquire of the attorney whether it is true that the victim has called repeatedly and the attorney has never called back. If that is true, then that might be an area of concern. But, the key is for your friend (the client) to discuss these issues with his/her attorney, and get clarification of the attorney's thoughts on the case, strategy, etc.

    I have spoken to several lawyers about my friends case. He accepted a plea for 30 years on armed robbery and aggravated assault. I have read some stories where people are getting there sentence reduced. He has been in jail for past 30 days yet and...

    Bob’s Answer

    I suggest that you just keep calling attorneys. If you have spoken to a lot of attorneys and they are all giving you what you consider to be a too high price, then it is probably a sign that it involves a lot more work than you imagine. There are a lot very hungry attorneys who often agree to accept very low fees because they need the income. Usually you can find a low priced attorney in just a few calls. Not finding one after a half-dozen or so calls would tell you that what you are asking will be difficult.

    Bob’s Answer

    I think you should hire a defense attorney in the county in which the warrant was issued. There may in fact be statute of limitations issues. But, there are many exceptions to the statute of limitations. Having unresolved warrants can cause other problems, such as possible trouble receiving benefits, getting certain jobs, etc. I suggest you get a local lawyer in Florida to look into it for you.

    Bob’s Answer

    You will probably not like this answer, but you will most likely have to do what both states tell you to do in order to get a license. I suggest that you do whatever Florida wants you to do first. They might accept your Georgia DUI school. I would take the certificate of completion to the Florida DDS (or whatever they call it). Once you get reinstated in Florida, they should issue you a clearance letter that will let Georgia know you are good in Florida. Then go to the Georgia DDS and find out what you have to do for Georgia to give you a license.

  • What can i do to avoid jail time

    i have a probation violation warrant because the probation officer was going to transfer me,he told me to go to one county and he then sent paperwork to a different county and he never informed me of this. What to do ? i shouldnt have to go to jai...

    Bob’s Answer

    I think you should consult directly with a defense attorney who handles probation violation cases in the county in which you were sentenced. And, I suggest you do that soon, as in before you get arrested. Once you are in jail it will be much harder for you to consult with an attorney. Also, it will be harder for you to get access to any records that you might have at your home, if any.
