You should consult with a criminal defense lawyer before pleading guilty. Most of us provide free consultations. Depending upon whether or not there is a restitution issue involved, a criminal defense lawyer may be able to plead your case down to an infraction as opposed to misdemeanor inattentive driving.
Best of luck in gaining an acceptable outcome.See question
My granddaughter was killed by a 16 year girl they took her family to court the judge only sentence her to like 60 days and told her if she had been 18 she would go to prison that's all they did was my daughters only child
I am sorry for your loss. The court case against the girl was a criminal proceeding. Your daughter has a tort claim against the at-fault driver, the owner of the car that she was driving, and possibly more people, depending on the facts.. There are likely insurance policies covering one or more of those people, from which your daughter should be able to collect. Your daughter should consult with a personal injury lawyer. Most, if not all, of us provide free consultations.See question

It seems that you have two questions:
1. Is there a remedy if you believe that you were illegally denied a public defender? and
2. Can you do something to change the system to help someone else?
The second question is easier - you can do what any other person can do and contact the legislators from the district that you reside in and discuss the problems and the potential solutions that you have to offer.
Regarding Q2, you can contact your local public defender's office, explain what happened and provide them with specific facts and they will likely be able to help you,
Alternatively, you can contact a skilled local criminal defense lawyer who may help you to have a PD appointed, but do not expect it to be free.
Regardless of what you decide, I wish you the best of luck!See question

I agree 100% with Mr. Shepard. A personal injury lawyer's job is to get you the maximum amount recoverable. An insurance adjuster's job is to pay the least amount possible. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by consulting with a skilled personal injury lawyer. Make a wise choice.
Best of luck to you as you proceed with this claim.See question

You have the right to sue for negligence and to seek damages for pain and suffering, but those damages will likely be very small. If the cuts leave a scar, then you would also be able to sue for permanent disfigurement. If the scar is concealed by your hair, however, the damages for any disfigurement are likely to be small as well. Take photos of the cuts and see whether or not a scar is left after healing. If so, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer for a case evaluation.
Best of luck!See question

credit card debt from 10 to 15 yrs. ago. Interest, lawyer fee's etc.
When you file your bankruptcy petition, you swear or affirm to the court that the contents within your petition are true to the best of your knowledge. When you are meeting with a lawyer whom you consult with, you are not under oath, but you had better be completely honest with your lawyer so that he or she can effectively represent you. If you are contemplating the 341 meeting of creditors, the trustee will examine you under oath. Usually creditors do not show up at the 341 meeting, but sometimes they do.
You should also consult with a lawyer about the statute of limitations on the debt. If your only debt is from 10-15 years ago, it is likely unenforceable.
Good luck!See question

The answer to your questions is "yes," you are able to file a motion with the court to ask for early release from probation. Some of the factors, although not all, that the court will consider are:
1. Whether or not you have complied with the terms of your probation, including whether or not you have paid all fines and fees and whether or not you have completed all items in the sentencing order;
2. Your prior criminal history and risk to reoffend;
3. Whether or not your PO recommends that your probation should be terminated early; and
4. Additional factors that would need to be discussed with, and evaluated by, a skilled criminal defense lawyer.
You would be wise to consult with a skilled criminal defense lawyer before filing a motion with the court.
I wish you the best in your battle against cancer and for a successful future.See question
his attorney is even going after metopay his legal fees dad is wanting allchild support andfree lawyer, I don't havejob and can'tafford topay for fees, canIdeclare bankrcupty on his fees?
If the court grants your daughter's dad's motion to award attorney's fees, you will most likely be able to discharge that debt in bankruptcy. Debts for domestic support obligations are not dischargeable in bankruptcy and it is uncommon for a court to specifically state in its order that attorney fee awards are intended to be domestic support, but a skilled bankruptcy lawyer would have to review the court order itself to determine whether or not your specific debt, assuming the court grants the motion, would be dischargeable.See question
