Legal Help Please???
My Boy And I Got Into It A While Back But I Was Sooo Drunk I Have No Clue What I Wrote On The Police Report, So In Tx Can The Case Be Dropped And/Or Dismissed So He Will Not Have To Go To Jail. His Court Date Is The 28Th And I Really Want Everything Dropped Against Him. How Do I Go About Making Sure That He Does Not Go To Jail.
Any good attorney will tell the finder of fact (usually a judge) that you were drunk at the time you made the statement. And if you have a doubt in your own mind as to whatever the facts are-- Then that SHOULD be "Reasonable Doubt".
However, we would need more facts to better help.
Does Anyone Know Of The Artist Robert Lawson?
He Was Born In New Orleans In 1920, According To A Bio One The Back Of An Abstract Painting.
Robert Lawson was born in 1892. Others in his immediate generation are McClelland Barclay, Pruett Carter, Dean Cornwell, Percy Crosby, Dorothy Lathrop, Andrew Loomis, Arthur Petty, Gardner Rea, Norman Rockwell and Raeburn van Buren. He grew up in Montclair New Jersey and was, by all accounts, a normal child with no signs of an artistic temperament. His interest in art was sparked in high school and he went to the New York School of Fine and Applied Arts after graduation.
His earliest work is reported to be in 1914 when he had his first studio in Greenwich Village and "did magazine illustration, stage settings, and some commercial work." I've never seen anything from this very early era. After a stint in WWI in a camouflage unit, he finally shows up on my radar with some illustrations in The Century Magazine of September 1919. The work appears to be derivative more of Sidney Sime than anyone else. See sample at right.
He quickly settled on pen & ink as his medium of choice and by 1921 he was producing complex images for Century like the one below - and that's reproduced at twice actual size, too. In 1922 he produced illustrations for his first book, Little Prince Too Fat.
Magazines like The Century phased out the use of illustrations and became more "literary" magazines about this time. My library of these titles simply stops after 1921. Illustrations became the sole purview of larger-format titles like The Saturday Evening Post, The Ladies Home Journal and Colliers. And I don't seem to have any records of Lawson working between 1922 and 1930. He is supposed to had done "commercial work and magazine illustrations" during that time. I'd love to hear from anyone with additional data.
It's in 1930 when I pick up his trail again. He began to illustrate books and that certainly got my attention. These early efforts included The Wee Men From Ballywooden, From the Horn of the Moon and The Roving Lobster (1931 - see right) - all by Arthur Mason. The style is reminiscent of John R. Neill and Dorothy Lathrop. Though he would occasionally stray from the medium, most of his career was devoted to mastering pen & ink. The line would occasionally thicken, as in Monro Leaf's The Story of Ferdinand (1936) or become softened with wash, as in Rabbit Hill (1944 - rocking rabbit at top of page) or thin down to a line so consistent and fine that it's a marvel to behold, as in McWhinney's Jaunt (1951 - fishing cyclist below).
I have to make a personal aside here. McWhinney's Jaunt was one of, if not the first illustrated book that I ever became aware of. I was five years old when it was published and my dad bought me a copy to occupy myself as he drove us from Pontiac, Michigan to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I had quite forgotten the fanciful images of McWhinney, who had invented a gas that he put in his bicycle tires so he could actually fly. I say forgotten because I had never come across a copy in my book-collecting/selling career and I wasn't sophisticated enough to connect that childhood memory with an actual artist.
Then about ten years ago, my older brother presented me with a wrapped box that he said belonged to me. Puzzled, I opened the box to rediscover McWhinney's Jaunt. The book had somehow traveled with him through his life instead of with me through mine. I was ecstatic. Of course it was a first edition! But just as surely, some little kid had written his name on the endpaper (which was torn and creased). The front hinge was starting, the cloth was dampstained with the spine ends frayed and the tips bumped and worn through. Pages were torn and creased and smudged and, well you get the idea. And for once it wasn't some nameless 'someone' - it was me! Here's the evidence. I can only plead ignorance. And I did learn to do better.
The path from The Roving Lobster to McWhinney's Jaunt and beyond was prodigious. E. Lee Baumgarten has over 50 entries for Lawson in his Price Guide and Bibliographic Checklist. Lawson began writing many of his own stories in 1939 and started with the famous Ben and Me - a story of a mouse and his Ben Franklin. His Rabbit Hill won the Newbery Medal in 1944 (as did the book Adam of the Road [at right] which he illustrated for Elizabeth Janet Gray). His biography of his ancestors, They Were Strong and Good, won the Caldecott Medal for 1940. His acceptance speech is a classic call for adults to respect children and not to predigest their reading material. I don't think too many people were listening.
Other famous books that he illustrated were Sword in the Stone by T.H. White (1939), Poo Poo and the Dragons by C.S. Forester (1942), and his own Capt. Kid's Cat and Mr. Revere and I. Many of his books are still in print. On February 25, 2000, Mr. Revere & I, Ben & Me, Rabbit Hill, Adam of the Road, They Were Strong & Good, and others were all available in modern editions from Amazon.com. As you might expect, I have a soft spot in my heart for Lawson books
What To Do If Not Represented Right By Court Appointed Lawyer?
I Recently Lost A Battle Of Termination Of Parental Rights When It Was Obviously Unjust(Several Professionals Were Against The Termination While Foster Parents Were The Only Ones Really Pushing It), My Court Appointed Lawyer Suppressed My Voice And Our Side Of Things And Never Took The Stand. What If Anything Can I Do? Already Appealed Up To State Supreme Court And Lost, Lawyer Barely Even Tried, Only Submitted A 10 Page Argument, State Had A 50 Page One(Mostly Stating Same Stuff Over And Over, Leaving Out The Professionals Opinions And Documentation). Lawyer Did A Crappy Job And Didn'T Even Do What I Asked By Putting Me On The Stand To Defend Myself. Please Help.
The law allows this. You can push for legal reform, but that won't likely help your own case.
People don't realize that it is their job to stand up in court and do the talking and if they allow their court appointed lawyer to make all the decisions, they don't have a say because they didn't assert themselves.
I agree with you that this should not be the case, as all too often the appointed lawyer is able coerce the person he supposedly is helping with the illusion of authority and the judge and the court back this illusion up.
The fact is, you could have asserted in court that the lawyer does not represent you and that you will represent yourself and the court appointed lawyer is only there for your counsel.
None of that matters now. The question now should be: how can you regain your parental rights? I don't know the answer to this question, but there may yet be a legal way. While the appeals to higher courts did not work out, you could still appeal to the original judge to reconsider on the grounds of miscarriage of justice. Don't even worry about the issue of the court appointed lawyer misrepresenting you. Focus on the fact that the judge did not hear all the information that there was to present. Offer up some new information to consider. Get rich, then play some golf with the judge in which you lose a bet. A judge can rescind a decision. You just have to find out how to motivate him.

Question About Juvenile Law Regarding Felonies, In Virginia?
I Am Not Sure Exactly How Old I Was When It Happened, But I'M Pretty Sure I Was Tried And Convicted Of A Felony In Juvenile Court.
I Was Not Tried As An Adult And I Was Not Sentenced To Any Detention Term. I Was Sentenced To Probation. I'M Not Sure How Long I Was Actually Sentenced To Probation, But I Spent Over A Year On It.
I Think The Year Was 1997 To 1999. Which Would Make Me 13 - 15Yrs Old At The Time.
What Confuses Me, Is The Law. I Read The Law Says That, In Virginia, Juveniles Convicted Of Felonies Over The Age Of 14, Will Have Those Records Remain Public. However, I Found The Official Public Database Of All Criminal Court Hearings And My Case Is Not Listed On There. I Do See Other Cases On There From The Same Time Period. (Obviously, I Checked The Dbs For The Courts I Was Tried In)
The Last Time I Was In Court, Was For Another Felony Charge In 1999, Which Would Make Me 15. I Do Not Believe I Was Convicted Of A Felony, Since I Was Not Sentenced To Anything. I Was Convicted Of Something, But I Think They May Have Reduced The Charge To A Misdemeanor, Since I Was Not Sentenced.
This Is The Last Time I Have Ever Been In Court, To This Day.
Since Then, I Have Also Obtained A Secret Security Clearance. Which, I Don'T Think Means A Whole Lot, Because A Secret Is Not Hard To Get. (Top Secret Is Hard To Get)
Besides Any Information You Can Give Me Above, My Question Really Is:
How Can I Find Out For Sure These Records Are Public Or Not, Without Accidentally Getting Them Dug Out Of A File Cabinet Somewhere And Put Into A Computer Database?
Also, I Have Not Lived In Va Since 1999. And This Is Not To Get Into The Military. I Obtained My Security Clearance Through The Military, Fulfilled My Contract Term (Plus Some Years) And Have Already Been Honorably Discharged.
You weren't able to find it on the public website because juvenile cases are heard in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, which is not available for viewing on the public website. The site only includes General District and Circuit Courts. You can still be convicted of a felony as a juvenile and only be sentenced to probation, it happens all the time. The only way to find out for sure if you were convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor is to contact the clerk of the court where it was tried, or contact the probation office where you did your probation. The probation office likely won't have your file anymore since so many years have passed. If it was a misdemeanor, it would have automatically been expunged by now pursuant to 16.1-306.
I Am Suing Former Real Estate Broker; Taking A Toll On My Health, What Do I Do?
I Just Turned 23. When I Was 20, I Thought I Knew What I Was Doing. Instead, I Decided To Purchase Real Estate With A Broker I Thought I Could Trust. Unknown To Me At The Time, The Brokers Were Con-Artists Who Forged Documents, Appraisals, Employment Information, And Even Irs Tax Forms Under My Name.
I Have Taken Matters Into My Own Hands And I Have Sued Them In Circuit Court. I Took This Step After Realizing Attorneys Are Way Too Expensive, Especially For A Case Like This. However, After A 40-Page Complaint, Two 20-Page Memorandum'S Of Law, And Several Other Pleadings; Along With A Full-Time Job, And Full-Time Status As A College Student, I Simply Can'T Handle The Stress.
My &Quot;Stress&Quot; Therapist Thinks I Should Drop The Suit. I Am Miserable Beyond Words, But I Feel Like I Can'T Give Up. I Have Submitted A Complaint To The Local Police Department, But These People Are Still In Business. I Feel Like I Owe A Duty To The Community To Stop These Crooks.
To Make Matters Worse, Their Insurance Carrier Is Paying For Their All-Star Lawyers. I Have A $300,000 Claim On The Table. I Don'T Know If That'S Worth My Health And My Happiness.
I Am In Need Of Some Wise Advice.
Check with your local legal aid office, they may be able to provide you an attorney at a reduced fee or even for free if you qualify. I don't know the specifics of your case, but it may be one that a lawyer would pick up on a contingency fee. You should look into that - then you're only out of pocket if you win. And call the state bar association in your state; see if they maintain a pro bono list that you can get yourself onto.
