Where Can I Find Free Legal Consultation From A Real Lawyer?
I Need To Talk To A Lawyer About A Legal Situation, On A Phone Or Through Email. It Is An Issue Of Confusion In The Courts And I Need To Discuss The Matter With A Real Lawyer.
Many attorneys offer free consultations, but usually the attorneys prefer that the meeting take place in person. Since you do not give your location, you should contact your state or local bar association (or entity that licenses attorneys). Many have free lawyer referral services, which will provide you with a free referral to an attorney. Whether that attorney will charge for the consultation is usually up to the attorney.
Attention Attorneys: Law Firms And Medical Marijuana?
I Am Curious About Hiring Policy In Law Firms Regarding The Medical Use Of Marijuana.
1. Is There Drug Testing Prior To Hiring And/Or During Employment?
2. Does The Policy Differ Between Different Firms?
3. If I Was (Hypothetically Speaking, Of Course) Using Marijuana For Medicinal Purposes, Can A Law Firm Find Evidence Of This On Some Registry Or Database?
Per The Subject Line, This Question Is Aimed At Attorneys. If You Are Not An Attorney, Can You Give Me A Credential For Your Knowledge?
Thanks In Advance.
1) Drug testing prior to and during employment is up to the individual employer.
2) Again, see above answer. Some employers may test at the time of the job offer while, some may randomly test during employment while others may not test at all. Again, it depends on the employer as each employer will differ.
3) No, unless you provide them with a release to gain access to medical history etc. If you are a medical user, you should have your card (depending on the state) to provide evidence that you have been authorized to obtain cannabis for medical purposes.
Last year a bill was pushed through to allow users of medical cannabis to be protected from employment termination in California. The governor vetoed the bill, but recommended that more research should be done to provide further information regarding medical cannabis. Shortly after, the governor began to speak about ending prohibition.
In other words, regardless of being a legal medicinal holder you are not protected. The individual employer reserves the right to be the deciding factor. One could assume that most employers would steer clear of this issue do to potential liabilities.
If you want to work for a law firm, I would suggest working for a firm that practices in marijuana laws. You can find lists of law firms who specialize in cannabis laws and defense in hightimes.
You might want to also check out norml.org for further info as I doubt that you will find an answer from an attorney regarding this issue on a public message board.
Where Can I Research To Find An Amount For A Personal Injury?
I Fell In A Hole In Another City And Broke My Ankle In 3 Different Places. I Have Had Two Surgeries And Is Going Through Alot Of Pain And Suffering. My Lawyer Asked Me What Would Be A Fair Amount? What Is My Disfigured Ankle Worth?
My son is in the process of filing a personal injury suit. Our lawyer brought over a bunch of papers with other peoples settlements. All the cases were pretty close to my sons. Example: time off work, number of surgeries, time it took to recover. Although every case is different, the judge looks at other cases similar, and thats how he comes to a decision.
It's like selling your house. The realtor sees what other houses in your area have sold for, and thats what they base there price on.
If I were you I'd make the lawyer do his job. It's not up to you to know how much to ask. If he's a personal injury lawyer he should have a very good idea on what you should settle for
Please Help Me With Some Legal Advice.?
I Need Some Legal Advice From Someone Who Knows What There Talking About Just So I Can Sleep Tonight. I Am Seeing A Military Lawyer Tommorow.
What Happened Was My Wife Was In The Bedroom Watching Tv, While I Was Outside Talking With Her Dad On The Phone And He Was Telling Me That We Need Some Marriage Counseling. So When I Got Off The Phone I Went In The Room With Her And Mentioned The Counseling To Her And She Told Me To Get Out Of Her Room. I Told Her That I Didnt Have To Because I Lived Here Too. After She Started Yelling She Told Me To Get Out And I Said Make Me. So Then She Got The Pistol And Put It In My Face So I Disarmed Her And Choked Her. Then She Called The Police And Told Them That I Choked Her First And Then She Got A Gun In Self Defense.
I Went To Jail That Night And When I Spoke With The Judge Yesterday She Told Me That Im Being Charged With Assault And Battery And Im Facing Up To 12 Months In Jail If Convicted.
What Can I Do About This. Im So Scared. She Put The Gun In My Face First. So Its Basically My Word Vs. Her Word. I Live In Alexandria Virginia By The Way.
In general, self-defense is defined that you feel you are in grave danger, if you do not do something to protect you or someone who is in danger. In this case, your wife putting a gun to your face is... well, you did what you had to do to protect yourself. But another thing with self defense is: you can only use enough force to protect you/someone else until you see the opportunity to flee. Meaning you can't stay there and beat the **** out of them for trying to hurt you as much as you like to.
With these kind of charges against you, you will need to find a criminal attorney to defend you. I'm not sure why you're seeing a military lawyer... is it for something else? I don't think they handle jurisdiction that are closer to home.
Note that I said the self-defense rule is in general. Laws differ from state to state, some states like Texas (I think? Can't remember if that's still going on) allow the person to kill the other person if they feel threatened. Check with the local criminal attorney who handles Criminal Defense.

nope, the arrears doesnt go away. they should not close the case if there are arrears due.
SS and Child Support (link is below)
seems to me, that you need to sit down and write a letter.
in it, give your contact info, case number, his info, the arrears amount and that they closed your case. tell them you want leins on his property or something done about this. ask them what they can do about this matter.
then FAX it to the following:
1) your states Attorney General
2) your states Governor
3) your caseworkers supervisor
4) your Regional FEDERAL Child Support Office
all of the links for it are below: keep in mind, phone calls are ignored, denied or forgotten. mail ends up in someones 'to do' pile, but FAXs are effective. its proof you sent it and proof they recieved it. therefor, they HAVE to address this problem. if you dont know the fax number, call and ask them for it. most websites have it right on there (some hide it), but i will try and find them for you....
FAX (916) 323-5341
