I was arrested and released on OR with a notice to appear in court on a date. I retained an attorney for this matter. The day before court date on notice, I was told by the attorney that nothing has been filed yet and there won't be a court the ne...
IMHO, your attorney should have appeared in court and gotten a proof of appearance for you. Yes, you may never need it, but I believe the best practice is to make that original appearance date for the client. Speak with your lawyer about it.See question

I have represented several clients who were "catfished" on that site by LAPD. Expect that you will be arrested. Retain counsel immediately and stop exchanging information on the internet with strangers.See question

Maybe, but don't assume they will. You should try to get a copy of it today so that you have your own copy. Good luck.See question
I was out on bail trying to fight 2 petty theft cases when i arrived late to court. The judge had me detained through lunch where the inmates belong. Then my public defender gives me a choice. "Plea no contest now or go to jail and await trial". I...
Yes, he can. You were late. You promised to appear on time. You broke your promise (maybe it happened before?). Your attorney made you aware of your options (you had options). You chose to plead guilty. It seems as if you had what you felt were compelling reasons at the time.See question
Probation officer said I must go through the court to be approved. I've been doing everything I'm supposed to and staying out of trouble. My fiancé is in the Air force and I need to see him in Tokyo, Japan in July. Please help. I don't have money ...
You must go through the court. Put yourself in calendar and see if you can get the PD to help you. Good luck.See question
It's been 10 years and my lawyer is saying he doesn't have any records form back then and is asking me to provide records of my retainer. is this legal? Shouldn't he have records? Do I have any recourse here
It's probably too late for you to get your retainer back. Why do you believe that you should get your retainer back now?See question
He was wasted from pills they had found on him and the people that lived there beat him up severely and he did not fight back. He showed no aggression at all. The was a tape in the garage which was suppose to be Turned over to the police but never...
If the garage was attached to the house, then it should be first degree burglary. Yes, the DA has the authority to drop a strike. Two years is the low term on a first degree burglary. You should not necessarily expect that they would offer probation, so this is a standard offer for what you described. It makes sense to me. Talk to his attorney about this.See question
They killed my brother in law in prison is there any way I could press charges for not having enough supervison.
You can't "press charges on" anyone or any entity. That's the DA's decision to make. This sounds like a potential civil case. Contact an attorney that practices civil and civil rights law. Good luck.See question
I am a female 50 year old competitive cyclist/skater. I was hit by a car on my bike. I was very upset and ended up punching the driver (female) in the face right afterwards. I was not arrested but given a notice to appear in court for assault a...
Well, only if you want to fight this charge. Battery is punishable with up to six months in jail. If you want to be convicted and are willing to accept whatever punishment they impose, then you don't need counsel.See question
a gun, and shot the taxi driver in the head. the taxi driver died. can this be brought down to manslaughter since he was very mad because of the fight?
That doesn't seem likely. He was trying to carjack a taxi cab when he got into a fight with the driver. He left, came back with a gun and killed the driver. Hopefully he has a good attorney for this murder case. He is looking at a potential charge of first degree murder and a life allegation.See question
