What Is The Punishment For A Felony Dui In California?
This Is My Second Dui Since 11/98. This One Is Charged As A Dui With Injury.
Shamrock is close, but not quite right. Every DUI with injury (Veh C sec 23153) can be punished as a felony, which, in this case, means 16 months to 3 years in prison. (See Veh C sec 23554 for punishment without a prior DUI.) The difference is the minimum punishment, even if probation is granted. Without a prior, the minimum sentence is five days in jail. (Veh C sec 23556.) With a prior DUI, the minimum probationary sentence is either 120 days, or 30 days and an 18-month DUI program. (Veh C sec 23562.)
There is also a difference in the fine. Without a prior, you could expect a fine in the area of $2,000. With a prior, probably in the area of $4,000. Also, without a prior, your license is suspended for one year; with a prior your license is revoked for 3 years.
Of course, the impact on your insurance, when and if you can drive again, will be considerable.
Real Estate Laws Problems?
Hi~ About 10 Years Ago I Bought A House With My Borther In Ca, And At That Time The House Is Under Me And My Brother'S Name, But About A Year Ago My Bro Told Me To Sign A Contract So He Can Refinanc The House, Cus He'S Always Beening Nice To Me So I Didn'T Actually Read The Things, But About A Month Ago One Of My Friend Who Is A Real Estate Agent Told Me That My Name Is No Longer Under The House, He Is Now Saying I Never Gave Any Money To Him To Buy The House, And Around This Month He Is Selling The House, Is There Any Ways I Could Get My Money Back?
Even if you can prove you gave your brother money, IF your name has been removed from the new deed on refinance and unless the 'agreement' you signed gives your an ownership interest in the home, you have nothing.
CONTRARY TO THE OTHER POST:
Neither the other poster nor I have read this 'agreement' you signed therefore, without such knowledge there can be no claim of fraud on any level that is not irresponsible.
If you feel the need, then take this 'agreement' to a local real estate attorney for review.
Be forewarned however, if you interfer with the sale and/or closing of the new home without legal grounds, your brother will have a good cause of action against YOU for interference with a business relationship.
So tread very carefully and before acting on such advice, have all documents and facts reviewed by a local Real Estate attorney.
From your explanation of the events, it seems you signed a quit claim deed which effectively removes your name from the home (you gifted your portion to your brother) and if you are deemed a competent adult of legal capacity, then there is no fraud.
The court cannot and will not void a contract simple because you did not read it.
My Lawyer Is Leaving His Law Firm. Is My Retainer Now Void?
I Signed A Contingency Retainer With My Attorney In A Personal Injury Claim. My Attorney Is Now Leaving His Firm And The Case Is Not Settled Yet. Do I Owe Him Any Money? Is The Contract Now Void? Can I Just Handle This Myself Now? He Is Offering To Turn It Over To His Partner To Handle.
It depends. The contract you signed maybe with the law firm vs the attorney. Many lawyers when they work in a firm have to pay a percentage of what they make to the firm. But in some cases when they leave, they take their business with them, or are prevented to take the cases if you signed in effect with the firm.
Since the case is not settled, you can either fire the lawyer or the firm that you signed on the contract. But;;;;;;be advised that in many contingency agreements, there maybe a clause that states that if you fire them or hire another lawyer, could be a "lien" on any settlement or they could bill you for costs that they incurred till you fired them.
The choice is up to you.
What Are The Advantages And Disadvantages Of Hiring A Lawyer Vs. Doing It Yourself When Forming An Llc?
Also, Is It Possible To Fill Out All The Paperwork Myself, But Have A Lawyer Draft An Operating Agreement?
Advantages: definitely having all of your bases covered...
Disadvantages: paying a lot for something that's pretty simple to do yourself...
Suggestion?? If you're to the point of forming an LLC, you should have a lawyer on as 'consult'...you do a lot of the legwork yourself, but you save a ton of money, and you still have all of your bases covered. I've learned this from experience with my photography business.
Finding a lawyer is the hardest part...I'd suggest making a LOT of appointments with any business or business litigation lawyer in your area and simply going in for a free consult. They're all about equally adept to handle all of your needs, so you're really just looking for someone that you feel really comfortable with.
Best of luck to you!!
**Update** $200 is about right. It sounds intimidating, but it isn't really. It all depends on how much of the leg-work you're comfortable doing. I do just about all of the actual 'work' and have him review everything for me...I do this with client letters, promo materials, and studio contracts. Also, I handle everything with him via email & that's much cheaper...it's easier on him, too, b/c he can look at it at his convenience. A quick example: I drafted my studio contract; sent it to him; he sent it back within 24 hours with several changes; he charged $50 and has saved me *thousands* with the simple additions he made. Again, all business attorneys are kinda' equal, so just make sure you feel *really* comfortable with them...I really hope this helps, and congratulations on the business venture!!
Signing A Legal Document?
I Have A Form (Form 18 To Be Precise) That Needs Either A Legal Practitioner, Jp Or Commissioner Of Declarations To Be My Witness. My Problem Is, I Live Overseas And The Solicitors That Need The Form Are In Another Country. Is It Still Legal If I Had My Local Jp To Sign It And Have It Faxed? I Also Have My Mother Acting On My Behalf Overseas, Would She Eligible To Sign For It Even Though They Need It In My Name? Not Sure Which Would Be Appropriate.
First, your mother cannot sign a document in your name unless you give her the power of attorney to do so. That may be the simplest solution. Second, some businesses and organizations accept faxed signed Declarations with a clear seal. Call and ask if this will do. Third, even if you have your document witnessed by a JP or a Commissioner of Declarations, you probably will still need to have it re-certified by an apostille under 1961 Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents. See your phone book.
Is This Legal - Employment Law?
My Company Has A Position With A $70K Package (Includes Insurance/401K, Etc). When I Hire Someone, I'M Supposed To Tell Them That If They Have A Family, Their Insurance Costs More Than If They Don'T Have A Family, So The Portion That Is Their Salary Will Be Less If They Are Insuring A Family. Something Doesn'T Sit Well With Me On This. Is This Legal?
Of course that is legal. the cost of insurance for MORE than one person is more than the cost for ONLY one person. Do you really think that there is one price for insurance no matter how many people are on the policy??
Ok NOW I see what you mean. You are wondering if it is legal to offer a single guy more salary and less insurance benefit and offer the family man more insurance benefit and less salary, but BOTH come out to $70k in the end. The answer is that yes that is legal. You are still offering both candidates the same value of compensation package and they cost the employer the same amount. MUCH better worded the second time and a very valid question!!
