I am a truck driver and was in a fender bender today. I was sent to take a drug test and the immediate result was "inconclusive" so they have to send it to a lab. I'm not sure if I'm going to pass as I smoked marijuana a couple weeks ago, I have a...
Depending on how much marijuana you usually smoke, of course it's possible that you would have a positive result even after s couple of weeks of not smoking. Since THC is stored in the body fat, it stays in the body for quite some time.
I'm not sure why you need to tell your boss anything. I think you just need to wait for them to retest your sample. Good luck.See question

Let your lawyer make the strategic decisions. If he isn't calling those witnesses, there's probably a reason. No one here can second guess that. Good luck.See question
My husband has 2 strikes from a prior case he got at 16.Now he has a new charge of 2nd degree robbery that the y picked him up for in 12/2016 and said he committed it on 10/2015.Need good advice please anything helpes.Thank you.
Fortunately, your husband is probably eligible for the public defender. If he is incarcerated, the public defender will be appointed free of charge.
Pro bono doesn't mean "free" or "cheap." It means for the public good or in the public interest. Is there some reason that you believe that an attorney might be interested in taking on your husband's case for free, considering that it is a 25 to life case and will require an extensive amount of time, effort and money invested on the part of his counsel? If so, I suggest you contact one of the local law schools to see if they can help you are with finding pro bono counsel for him. Good luck.See question

Are you defense counsel? I understand your desire to assist, but why are you handling this? Why isn't the PD representing her? Think about your license. You have worked too hard. Associate in counsel or see if the PD can take it over. Good luck.See question
My public defender denied me right to speedy trial,don't know what I have against me it's 8-10 and I feel da and my lawyer is violation of something but she tells me I can't talk and every time I go to court they try to put me in jail I don't know...
Your question is hard to understand. You are not supposed to talk when you go to court, your lawyer is. The lawyer is doing the right thing. How can you not know your lawyer's name? Did you ask? If you are 8 of 10, you can ask to hire counsel, but the court may not allow it or may tell your new attorney that they must be ready by the original trial date.
From what you wrote, I predict you may have trouble finding a lawyer (not advised of move of trial, feel attorney is in violation of "something," lawyer denied your speedy trial rights).
Consider sticking with your appointed counsel. Talk to your attorney. Good luck.See question
I was arrested several years ago and am still going to court over the charges (under prop. 36). In my opinion, it should have been thrown out before it started for several reasons. My public defender, who made me all kinds of promises, never fol...
You were not abandoned by your public defender. She was reassigned. That's what happens in big law firms, sometimes attorneys get moved. You still had a public defender that was available to you downtown. Since the office was there to represent you, you were not abandoned.
If you forgot when your appearance was, that's not your attorney's fault, that's your fault. Also you can't Marsden a lawyer that you haven't spoke to yet.
You need to appear in court and get your warrant recalled. You can then request a Marsden, but you will need to make an adequate showing to the court. Good luckSee question

Pro bono means for the public good or in the public interest, not free. He will qualify for the Public Defender because he is in custody.
Private counsel will be expensive as his case is fairly serious. You don't want a "reduced rate" lawyer (whatever that means) because it's probably not a good idea. Good luck to him.See question

Attorneys are retained by the case, not for the appearance, since there is no way to know how many appearances a case will take. It sounds like a probation violation hearing. If he is unhappy with his appointed counsel, you should contact some attorneys to ask for a consultation.See question
