Can A Person With Misdemeanors And A Felony Dui Still Be Able To Become A Lawyer?
Hey Can A Person With Misdemeanor And Felony Dui Still Be Able To Become A Lawyer? I Was Thinking Of Getting Into Business Law But I Have A Bad Background. They'Re All Duis Though. Would I Be Able To Get Into Law School And Pass The Moral Character Test? If I Do, Would People Hire Me If I Had Background Like That? I'M Waiting For The 7 Years To Be Up As Well So I Can Get A Governor'S Pardon And Am Trying To Get My Misdemeanor Duis Expunged As Well.
How About People With Disorders Like Bipolar Or Schizophrenia? Can People With Such Disorders Practice Law???
The California Bar is beginning to take a stronger stance on DUIs and attorneys. While it hasn't really begun affecting current attorneys, it is beginning to stand in the way of applicants passing the moral character review. I don't believe there is any hard-and-fast rule (published) on the matter. But they'll look at how many DUIs you have, how recent they were, how well you complied with various court orders, what other trouble you've been in, etc.
Just by way of example, I know one person who "failed" the moral character review because he got a DUI about 3 years prior. But another "passed" because his DUI was over 7 years.
BTW, California doesn't have a true expungment. What you're applying for is a PC1203.4 dismissal. The charges will still show up, but show as dismissed (as opposed to a true expungment, which effectively destroys or seals the record). And while the 1203.4 allows you to legally say you've never been convicted when asked by a private party/entity, you still MUST disclose it to governmental agencies (including the Bar), and it won't prevent them from seeing what you were originally sentenced to.
Sc Real Estate Laws- What Is The Law Regarding The Carrying Away Of Items By Real Estate Agents?
An Agent Entered Our Home Prior To Closing And Removed Our Dishes, Silverware, Groceries And Other Items We Had Planned To Removed A Few Hours Prior To Closing. He Has Since Denied Doing Such And Says All Of Our Items Were Most Likely Thrown Away...
Does Anyone Know The Exact Wording Of The Law About The Carrying Away Of Goods By An Agent Prior To Closing?
This is not about real estate law. If you had not closed on the sale of your home and turned over possession to the new buyer, taking your stuff is "theft" and is a criminal act. Whether or not that was done by the real estate agent and can be proven is a different story.
Again, if you had not closed, the house is still yours so why would anyone have access and why would that person "throw away" your stuff. If the agent made that statement, it would seem to me that he or she is suggesting that someone had access to your house and only a licensed real estate agent or people that they had authorized would have access to the lock box. In fact, the new electronic lock boxes have a chip that records any agent's entry to the home.
If the missing stuff is valuable, and was not going to be thrown out anyway, then I would speak to the agent's broker and if you do not get satisfaction, I would consider filing a complaint with the Board of Realtors and/or the South Carolina Real Estate Commission. But before you take any action, be certain of the facts.
If those items were left in the house after closing, or after you tendered possession to the purchaser, that is another story. Then it is reasonable that someone assumed that they were abandoned and the buyer or the buyer's agents,cleaning crew or anyone else may well have thrown them out.
What Does A District Attorney Do?
Can Anyone Explain What A District Attorney Actually Does? What Are Their Everyday Duties? Is It Possible For A Regular Citizen To Schedule A Meeting With Them And Actually Get To Contact Them?? Thanks!
What a District Attorney does is lead the court prosecution of people who are charged with breaking laws.
If you are looking to contact the one in your area, look for your city's or subdivision's website. They will probably show you some method of contacting the DA -- by phone, email or visiting the office. It would probably be good to call ahead and see if you can schedule some time with the DA.
Breaking A Lawyers Contract?
My Family Got A Lawyer But Didnt Sign A Contract But Was Paying Him Just Incase We Wanted To Go Through With Him, But In The End We Decided He Wasnt Doing A Great Job He Was 3 Months Behind And Just Isnt Satisfied With His Work...We Are In The Process Of Looking For Another Lawyer. When I Asked The Lawyer To Return The Money He Said He Would Until We Have A Contract With Anothe Lawyer. Can He Do That Even Though We Dont Got A Contract Together? We Live In Texas If That Helps.
A lawerys retaining fee/fees may or maynot need be returned to you ,it all depends on what the agreement law of verble and writen contrats says. In a writen contract the lawery must conplete certain things in a timely manner of forfit the contract because of brechment or breching of said contract. The same would also be ture with a verble contract it would depend on what the state of Texas says about both writen and verble contracts.
Who To Contact About Adoption?
My Fiance And I Are Going To Be Married Soon And We Would Love For Him To Be Able To Adopt My Daughter As Soon As Possible. I Know I Need To Contact A Lawyer, But I'M Not Sure Which &Quot;Kind&Quot; - Is It Family Law? Thanks For Your Help!
Your yellow pages is full of lawyers. Call an adoption lawyer and get a price up front. It shouldn't be more than a few thousand, if that. I would get a few quotes before making a decision. An excellent place to get a referral is a local adoption agency or your county's children's services department. Adoptions like you describe are very simple compared to other adoptions. Your fiance may have to attend state mandated home study classes or jump through some other hoops. A lawyer can walk you through that.
You will need to contact your child's birth father and have him sign off. If you think this will be a problem, be prepared to go to court and spend more on the lawyer. Adoption laws vary by state so I can't tell you a whole bunch more. How old is your child? At a certain age the child will have a say in the adoption. Like I said, those are things that your lawyer can review with you. Good luck!

What Do I Have To Do At This Point. Please Help Me
What Should I Tell My Friends.
I Know That I'Ve Done A Big Mistake Inviting Them To My House. What Are The Chances?
Stop talking to the cops.
The police don't have your best interest in mind. There job is to find out what illegal things you've done so they can put you in jail. They will, and are allowed to lie to you.
Which is what this cop was doing. Because if she had said you sexually assaulted you, you would have been arrested right then and there. I don't know where the police officer got sexual assault. Did you say something about it first? Or maybe the cop just saw two girls and two guys and his mind went to that. So the cop said it to get your reaction. Someone who was capable of rape would have had a very different reaction. So that's all, the officer was just trying to trip you up.
Make sure you tell your parents everything. Be honest, you don't want your parents to be surprised later.
I don't think you need a lawyer yet. But your parents might ask their friends who's a good lawyer. And if anything more is said about rape or sexual assault, or if the police want to question you again, then call a lawyer.
