I had guilty plea's where I withdrew my guilty plea under 1203.4 years later and it was granted by the Court...and as I understand it I then plead not guilty...do I have to disclose this to anyone other than for a government agency...I have a real...
an expungment under 1203.4 allows you to say in almost all cases except governmental entitiy application, that your record is clean.
if you had a felony you would have to 17b the felony to a misdemeanor and then 1203 the misd.See question
Me and my husband used a moving company to transfer our housing and the truck caught on fire, nothing was salvaged due to smoke damage, the insurance company for the moving company has not been on this case at all, they had us take pics and send i...
with most fire cases you can use a public adjuster like Greenspan and Co.
if the ins co or defendant are giving you a hard time you will probably have no choice to pressure the defense into doing what is right.
I been trying to read on the Internet what elements need to be proved in a slip in fall case and I'm just not understanding. For example a foreseeable reasonable risk or causation. Like what if someone mopped the floor and I tripped or slipped v...
You have to prove the owner knew or should have known of the dangerous condition.
Many cases are from S&F in markets who have sweep sheets showing when that aisle was cleaned.
The case law started with the old gritty banana peel case in the old west. The court determined that if the banana was fresh and green it was probably just dropped and you can not hold the owner responsible for every minute of the day....it is not strict liability. However if the banana was black and gritty it is reasonable to assume it had been there awhile. Thus the owner should have been aware.
Of course the defense lawyer will ask "were you looking where you were going? "
He will argue if you were looking you would/should have seen it. IF you say no then he will argue why should you collect when you were negligent yourself.
I have a criminal case pending trial in CA. I'm planning to move for work related to Washington, DC. Will they allow me to move? can I move my criminal case with me instead of coming back everytime? Please advise
the simple answer is NO..............the court with jurisdiction is that court covering the location of the crime.See question

you can ask the homeowner.
i usually suggest to my clients they call and say their doctor has asked for this information so that they can bill for you injuries......and not threaten litigation.
I got injured on the premises of a large nationally known banks property. The bank has admitted fault and I have many witnesses. I have two law firms interested in my case. How do I choose the right lawyer for my case?
Inquire as to their experience with slip and fall cases and how many they have had in the last year and then how many of their cases went to trial. Lastly inquire as to their success rate with slip and falls.
It will not be as high as other types of accidents.
Special damages (medical costs) were a total charged of $958 and a total out of pocket of $401 for emergency room visit and x-rays for minor pain, anxiety, stress from accident. Lingering back pain for several days but no lost income or futher me...
In my opinion there is no such thing as customary on your case. Years ago they would use a multiple of 3-4 times you medical but not today. I do not know of a lawyer that would accept your case and the time for legal advice is before you treat and talk to the insurance company.
In my opinion your answer will be to file in small claims if you can not get a decent offer (in your opinion) from the insurance company.......which i suspect will be the case.
"i had 2 duis 11 years ago, did 6 months, had another 4 years ago, did work furlough and had IID installed, after it was removed I had another last week totaling just my car. am I looking at jail time? this is in Ca." my arraignment is next Thursd...
Though sentencing is court sensitive i pretty sure any judge in California would give you jail time.
Jail would be mandatory with your priors but the question is whether you can get an ankle bracelet and home arrest as a trade off for jail. In Indio they give jail on a first offense with a low reading.

most counties have legal aid but before you go there ask for a public defender. They would be lawyers that practice in that court and know the DA's and Judges...............and how to work them.See question

a lawyer would need more info to answer that question...........
The first thing that comes to mind is a possible illegal search and seizure issue.
Do yourself a favor and hire a lawyer or ask for a public defender.
An important consideration might be how much drugs are involved. I suspect it might be more than a very small amount.
