More information is needed to evaluate this situation. You need to consult in person with an experienced and seasoned lawyer in your area. A local attorney will be more familiar with the lay of the land and tendencies of local Courts and Judges. An experienced local attorney can evaluate what evidence, statements or identifications are likely to be admitted at an arbitration, mediation, administrative hearing, preliminary hearing or trial. They can also provide an assessment of the compensation, consequences and/or potential outcome of the issue(s) involved.
Many counties have Legal Aid offices staffed with attorneys to assist the general public with a wide range of legal issues. Many civil and family law courts have “self-help” departments with staff available to assist the general public. Legal assistance at these locations is generally free or available on a sliding scale basis, depending on your ability to pay. You should also check with your local Law School and see if they operate a Community Legal Clinic, staffed by Law Students and supervised by licensed attorneys.
This is not legal advice! You need to speak to a attorney who is licensed in your state for legal advice. I strongly recommend you make an appointment with a competent and experienced attorney in your area, who can take time to carefully evaluate and explain all options available. This is merely suggestions for you to think about in discussing your situation with the local attorney.
