I need an attorney that is willing to work with me on making affordable payments. Can anyone help?
Lawyers can be expensive but many will work on a payment plan. Of course that should not be your first requisite in finding someone. Look for someone you trust and who will be honest with you about your options up front. I wish you the best of luck. I know many lawyers that will do payment plans. Watch out for the really cheap quotes.See question
Do you have to ask for this program or can the judge just sentence it?
It is a great program that is all about second chances! Usually your lawyer will discuss the option with the prosecutor and advance all the good reasons you should get the program IF it is your first offense. Also your charge needs to qualify. Good luck!See question

. Pay a second lawyer to evaluate your entire case if you want another evaluation. Why pay? A lawyer who is going to take the time to look at everything the right way is not going to do it for free. If you get a free second opinion, it may not be a fully vetted opinion. Good luck!See question

I just received my PTD letter in the mail giving the date I must meet up to sign the contract. I was wondering if they will be drug testing me on the day that I sign the contract to start probation
You shouldn't but I hope for your sake you stop doing drugs. You could blow a great opportunity to get your charge dropped and later expunged off your record.See question

Thank you for your question. The answer is that it depends. The Domestic Violence Divisions in Central Florida have become tougher of late. In Orlando for instance, a new Prosecutor has taken over and has stressed a strong stance on these crimes. You have every right to ask the State to drop the charge, but the State has every right to prosecute your wife as they do not represent the victim but society as a whole. Your wife would benefit from retaining a lawyer. Additionally even if the charge is dropped, the arrest will remain on her record so she should talk to a lawyer about Expungement of her records if possible. Furthermore, even if the State files charges, your wife may qualify for a diversion program. Completion of that program leads to charges being dropped as well. I hope i have been helpful. Good luck!See question
I think her sentence is to high she never got in to trouble they gave 90 month in perison and 90 month probation
I am sorry to hear that. If the sentence was within the guidelines, there won't be much you can do. However you can have a post conviction lawyer take a look at your daughter's case and see if help is available.See question
The position under her was eliminated. They laid her off and moved the person from the eliminated position to hers. This was at a clerk of courts office
This sounds like an employment question.See question
