How Can I Get Free Lawyer Consultation?
I Got A Charge. & Agreed To Become An Informant, But An Officer Began Sitting My Dealers Road So He Quit Dealing. Now I Can'T Turn Him In & I Don'T Know What To Do. I Can'T Take This Charge.
Ugh. You should have retained a lawyer to begin with. The police are allowed to lie and deceive when investigating crimes, and any promises they make to you are not enforceable. Only the prosecuting attorney can bind the government to a deal.
If you can't take the charge, you need to a lawyer as soon as possible. You might go to your public defender's office -- sometimes the lawyers there are actually very good (the difficulty is getting them to care much about your case). Write down the date, time and content of every communication you had with the officer -- perhaps your lawyer can make a case to the prosecutor that you were substantially complying with the police and deserve a lesser charge. You'll basically be relying on the prosecutor's goodwill, so try to find a lawyer who knows the prosecutor.
Otherwise, you're going to have to fight the charge, and you definitely need a lawyer for that.
Who Is The Best Family Attorney In San Antonio, Tx?
You want to look it up by specialty(family law), and can narrow it by sub-specialty (child custody, divorce, etc) and then look for the peer-review rated names. There are almost 200 in San Antonio.
I used Michael Latimer to handle a divorce, but it was uncontested. Not sure how much family law he does. He had handled a labor law matter for me, which is his specialty.
Don't know anything about that first answer you got, other than by looking at his website, he appears to be a solo practitioner spreading himself in too many directions, and his "results" don't appear to be all that impressive. If your case is complicated, I'd find someone else.
I Really Need Help From Someone Who Practices Family Law In Pennsylvania!?
I Want To Separate From My Husband But I Cant Even Afford A Place To Live Until I File For Child Support And Alimony. But If I Am Correct, I Don'T Think I Can File For Either Of Those Unless I Am Already Legally Living Somewhere Else Is That Right? What Do I Do?
If you are in danger or being abused go to a women's shelter. If not, make a financial plan. Get a job. You're choosing to be a single mom. You're going to have to go out and support yourself and your children. You can't rely solely on child support and alimony. This is only meant to pay part of the children's expenses. He may or may not pay his child support regularly. If you can't make more than minimum wage you may want to think about applying for section 8 housing now as the waiting list is 2 years long or more (depending on where you live).
You will need money saved up for an attorney unless you feel that you and your husband can work out all the details of the split amicably or through a mediator. If he takes you to court to fight for your kids you better have a plan in mind. Legal aid usually only helps women in domestic violence situations. You may be able to get a pro bono attorney through the state bar association, but it is most likely that you will have to represent yourself and know the laws and procedures of the court thoroughly yourself to do so.
While you're saving money to support yourself look for community resources for anything you don't think you can do for yourself. Look up criteria that judges look at when deciding custody. This is a very serious decision. Don't go about it half-way or you could lose everything that is important to you.
Also, be aware that final divorce decisions can take a year or two. (Sometimes it's just a couple of months, sometimes much longer). You won't receive any child support or alimony until that is decided upon. There will be a pre-trial hearing (assuming your husband and you don't agree). There will be a trial. I cannot stress enough that you cannot count on that money. You don't know what the amount is or whether or not it will get paid or WHEN it will be ordered. There is the possibility of losing custody of your kids. (I don't know the whole situation). If he appears to be able to offer the kids more stability the judge may award him physical custody.
The first step is to get enough money together to retain an attorney ($1500-$2000 at least), money for deposit and first month's rent, living expenses for at least a month.

ok ma'am i hope this helps. legally you can go to small claims for this. small claims court does not require you to have an attorney so it would be cheaper. also small claims caps out at $5,000. So if you have damages over $5K then small claims isnt for you. also if you have a written agreement that she was supposed to do what you said she was supposed to do then you have a strong case and will win. hope this helps.
then all you get componsated for is everything but upkeep. unless the judge believes so i would bring that up in court as well. sounds like you have a very strong case.

Any One With Any Real Refereneces Please Help Out.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
What Are My Legal Rights If I Find There Is A Cockroach And Mice Problem After I Signed My Lease And Moved In?
I Rented This House In Tn Well Above The Middle Of The Road Range (Paying $750) And I Found It Has Mice And Cockroaches Since Being Here. I Told The Landlord And He Came Out And Put Mice/Rat Poison Under The House And Sprayed The Inside Of The House Around The Walls And Left A Large Container Of Bug Spray For Me To Continue Spraying A Couple Times Over The Next Couple Weeks And I Guess Maintain The Spraying Monthly Or So.
I Only Rented This Place Because It Seemed Nice And The More I Am In Here, The More I Am Becoming Unhappy! I Paid 750 First Month Rent And Also 750 Deposit. I Don'T Even Want To Eat From My Dishes Out Of The Cupboard Without Washing Them First.
While Only One Or Two Cockroaches Show Up Every Couple Days - They Are There And For Sure There Are More Than A Couple Around Or I Wouldn'T See Any.
I Want My Deposit Back And To Get Out At The End Of The First Month - How Can I Do This? Help-Km
Your legal rights will be spelled out in your residential/tenancy agreement contract. The terms in this contract must be consistent and comply with TN state laws governing landlord and tenants' rights. Landlords have an obligation to make sure the rental unit is safe and habitable regarding health etc. The landlord is obligated to rid the habitat of vermin and such to make sure it remains habitable. This means taking ALL steps necessary to eliminate the problem. The question is whether or not he is taking all necessary steps to do so or if he is doing things the cheapest way possible.
Also at issue is not whether or not the landlord has taken reasonable steps to deal with the problem. At issue is whether or not the place is habitable. Since it is an ongoing problem and within his control he is not fulfilling his contractual obligations in my opinion. In my opinion the problem poses a health hazard and not just an annoyance or inconvenience to you. Explain this to your landlord, give in writing the required notice and move. It is only my opinion but the cockroaches and mice were not part of the deal and had he told you that it will be or "may" be a problem I'm sure you would have looked elsewhere for accommodations.
Bottom line? Read the residential/landlord tenancy act [or similar] for the state of TN. Then you will know with certainty your legal rights.
