A little over 10 years ago, I did something stupid (non-violent/non-drug related) that was a very minor misdemeanor in a Southeastern State. It was so minor that I was only given a Notice to Appear instead of getting a mugshot taken. My lawyer at ...
It is clear to me your only answer is "yes." As part of your response, I am certain you must also provide details.
You are dealing with multiple jurisdictions that have multiple rules. Failure to answer any question truthfully is a separate reason to deny your license.
If the facts are as you report, you should have little difficulty in obtaining your license. If you have not already, I recommend you obtain a Live Scan so you do not miss anything. Good luck.See question
I believe my former attorney shared written information that should have not been shared with a third party and submitted without my permission for their gain (details withheld). This attorney has the attitude of nothing was disclosed "during repr...
The attorney -client privilege persists even after representation has ended, as well as the duty to maintain confidentiality. You can file a complaint with the State Bar. However, the devil is in the details. Not every communication between and attorney and client is privileged, nor are all matters confidential. And, there are exceptions to any rule.See question
My husband and I filed a complaint with the SBC and were told on the phone his response. ARE WE suppose to get a copy of his response, is this a right we have?
It depends on how the State Bar Court has handled the complaint. If there are actual judicial proceedings, you have a right to see copies of all public submissions. You may have to request and pay for them. BTW, many public documents are available from the attorney's profile page, State Bar website
If, however, you simply filed a complaint with the State Bar, if the proceedings are not made public, you are only entitled to receive a letter from the State Bar regarding the handling of the matter.See question
What is the code section that provides a prevailing party attorney fees for a Request for Order, Motion to Quash a Writ of Execution?
There is no specific statute. There are some statutes that may be applicable depending on the underlying claim but, since you have posted no facts, it's not possible to opine.
If there is an underlying contract that provides for attorney fees, it may form the basis for attorney fees in aid of execution and, likewise, attorney fees incurred in defeating execution.
Since attorney fees are not available to parties representing themselves, this is a question properly addressed to your attorney.See question
I filed a motion to compel a while ago on some garbage objections. After some showboating, the responding party suddenly served me with amended responses which are similarly garbage. What do I do now? Do I take the motion off calendar, repeat t...
The service of amended responses makes the motion to compel moot, except perhaps for monetary sanctions. I assume you are pro per. If so, you have the filing fee which can be awarded as sanctions. I would take the motion off-calendar, meet and confer, and re-file if necessary.See question
I have a contractual arbitration agreement and want to file a vacate or correct with the court based on civil code 1285 of the agreement.Also when I serve the notice of the hearing -other than the dates and addresses and the tiles and locations do...
I agree your question is ambiguous. I recommend you consult legal counsel immediately to determine how you should proceed.
Unless you have an arbitration award (not merely an agreement to arbitrate), you do not file a motion to correct or vacate. Either you arbitrate pursuant to the provision, or you file suit. If you file suit, adverse parties may waive their right to arbitrate by answering.
If you have an award, your first step would be to ask the arbitrator to correct the award if you believe the arbitrator has made an error. The grounds for a court to correct or vacate are *very* limited. I suspect you do not have legal grounds.See question
Found deed was in wrong name and document was never presented to me during loan process. It was not my signature, it was a forged attempt of my signature. I assumed I would need a real estate attorney, but I've contacted a few and they said the...
You do not state how you have been damaged. Why do you assume this is bank fraud? You need to post a few specific facts. If you are willing and able to pay hourly fees, most litigation or real estate attorneys would be able to help you. If you are looking for contingency representation only, you will find few takers. Good luck.See question
Teacher in a civil dismissal case. Union paid for my attorney and I signed a retainer stating that if the union stops paying or caps the amount paid I would be notified immediately by the firm and a $5000 deposit would be required immediately or I...
Respectfully, for any advice you can rely upon an attorney would have to review the retainer agreement and facts with you. Since the dispute is only over $7,500 it would be difficult for an attorney to render any economic benefit to you with respect to the fee dispute. Your best alternative is to retain new counsel to continue with your underlying case. Your new counsel would then be in the best position to advise you regarding this fee dispute. Good luck.See question
Plaintiff filed a motion for attorney's fees within the 60 days. However, after the 60 days, Plaintiff wants to amend the motion for attorney's fees. Is this okay?
What and why is the reason for amendment? Parties can generally agree to an amendment and the court may allow any amendment in its discretion. However, the devil is in the details. See Code of Civil Procedure section 473(a).See question
My girlfriend hired a personal injury lawyer under a contingent fee agreement after she sustained a knee injury that required surgery.Her lawyer went through the process of sending a demand letter, filing a claim Etc. After the deposition he told ...
I agree with Mr. Starrett. As long as the attorney is attorney of record, the attorney is entitled to maintain the file. The client can receive a copy of it or review it at the attorney's office. Copy charges will be determined by the fee agreement. If the client wants the original file, a substitution of attorney is in order: either to another attorney or the client in pro per.See question
