Finding A Highly Skilled Lawyer No matter what your legal needs are you will recognize that there are many lawyers in the area that advertise which they are experts in your kind of case. This can make the process of finding one with a lot of experience a bit of a challenge. However, if you follow the following you will be able to define your quest on the right one in very little time. The initial step is to create a list of the lawyers which are listed in the area focusing on your position. While you are causeing this to be list you must only include those that you may have an excellent vibe about based on their advertisement. You may then narrow this list down through taking a bit of time evaluating their website. There you must be able to find the number of years they are practicing and a few general information about their success rates. At this point your list must have shrunken further to individuals that you felt had professional websites as well as an appropriate level of experience. You need to then spend some time to check out independent reviews of each and every attorney. Be sure to browse the reviews instead of just relying on their overall rating. The information from the reviews will provide you with an idea of the way they communicate with their clients and the time they invest into each case they are working on. Finally, you should meet with no less than the past three lawyers that have the credentials you are interested in. This provides you with some time to genuinely evaluate how interested they may be in representing you and your case. It is actually imperative that you follow most of these steps to actually find a person which includes the best level of experience to get you the very best outcome.

Medical Marjaua Grow - Legal Question/Advice?
Cops Recently 'Raided' My Family Home With A Search Warrant At The Behest Of A Neighbor Who Claimed We Were Growing Marijuana On The Premises. They Confiscated 7 Marijuana Plants And A Grow Light But I Thought, As A Medicinal Patient, I Was Allowed A Few Plants For Personal Growth. Cops Searched My House, Raised Eyebrows On Things They Thought Were Suspicious (Unredemmed Zoloft Prescription From When I Was Taking Anti-Depressants; They Found It Filed Away With My Other Medical Paperwork) I Am A Medical Marijuana Patient But Now, With The Plants Going To The District Attorney, I'M Afraid They May Make A Case. Can Anyone Offer Any Helpful Insight Or Legal Advice/Counsel.
What state? Every state has a drastically different law, if they have one at all, which yours apparently does.
If you are allowed plants explicitly, it should say how many mature plants. If it doesn't, you're in a gray area that's a great reason to put higher standards on citizen initiatives.
Also, if the change was statutory, it's unlikely the DA will protect you in any way from the Feds. If it's constitutional, then you have to wait and see. In my state, Colorado, you could have six mature plants if your permit is valid. Your state may not be clear. For the record, Colorado's law isn't very clear either.
EDIT: I usually only post government/statutory sites, but these people like your cause and seem to have an accurate collection.
Looks to me like the police can confiscate while they decide whether or not you were dealing. Also, if I'm getting your county right, seven mature plants puts you over the limit. Depending on how much will be the difference between a simple possession ticket and a for realsies case that could land you in trouble.
Hire that attorney as soon as possible.
First Offense Petty Theft Lawyers Keep Sending Me Letters, How Do I Get This To Stop?
Is There Anyway To Get These Vultures Off My Butt? Do I Need One? I Was Just Planning On Pleading Guilty And Paying The Fine And Community Service.
in some areas clearly lawyers have access to the latest list of offenses, for instance we got loads in the post when my husband got a ticket in NJ and they all got sent to our house in florida.
Just shred them and ignore them, as for needing a lawyer that's up to you of course and I would base it off how much the value of the items where.........
Husband Filed Divorce And Now I'M Homeless? How Is This Legal?
I'M 18 Years Old And I'Ve Been Together With My Husband Since I Was 12, Married Since December 2012. Please I Don'T Want To Hear Any &Quot;You'Re Too Young&Quot; Crap, I'M In A Really Bad Situation And I Don'T Know What Else To Do Or Where To Turn.
Currently I'M At A Friend'S House, But They Brought Me In Behind Their Parent'S Back, So I Can'T Stay Here.
My Husband Filed For Divorce Out Of No Where. I Had No Warning, Nor Any Clue That Anything Was Wrong. He Never Said A Word. His Mother Came By, Packed Up My Stuff, And All But Physically Pushed Me Out Of My Apartment Door. My Husband, Zac, Had My Name Removed From Our Lease And I Received An Eviction Notice Of Just Me With My Divorce Papers When They Were Served To Me.
I'Ve Been Homeless Now Since May 2Nd. I Was Even Raped One Of The Nights I Was Sleeping On A Park Bench. Yes Police Were Involved, But The Case Was Thrown Out Due To Lack Of Evidence.
I Don'T Have Any Family Because I Was In Foster Care Since I Was 8 Years Old. I Was Adopted When I Was 11, But My Adoptive Parents Emancipated Be On My 17Th Birthday.
I Don'T Know What To Do. I Have No Money, No Job, No Car... Nothing. I'Ve Already Pawned Every Valuable Item I Own, And That Money Was Used For Food. My Husband Had The Job, I Was A Stay At Home Wife. I Live In Texas, And My Husband And I Have Not Been Married Long Enough For Me To Be Able To File For Spousal Support.
The Town I Live In Doesn'T Have Any Shelters Or Anything Like That Available. All The Shelters Within A 50 Mile Radius That Accept Women Only Will Help Me If My Husband Had Beat Me.
Even Through All This Mess, All I Want Is My Husband. His Mother Is Blackmailing Him To File This Divorce. I Love Him More Than My Own Life. I Just Want To Go Home.
What Am I Supposed To Do?
Can your friend drive you to a social services office one day next week? I suspect you qualify for temporary assistance such as food stamps and etc. They can also help you find a job. And have you been to a local food bank or local churches? There is a lot of help available, you just have to figure out where to look.
Since you are 18 years old you can sign a lease. Once you have a job it will be much easier for you to find a place to live. Perhaps you can stay with your friend until that happens? Or with other friends? Churches might have ideas of where you can sleep, too.
P.S. Find out about legal aid near you to find yourself a free attorney who can help you with your divorce.
Do you have bus service? Is the social services office within walking distance? If not, CALL THEM. A social worker will be able to help you figure out how to get help.
Also, I don't know about near you but there is a United Way Service called 211 where I live. You dial 211 and get connected to any available local services. Just pick up your friend's phone at hit 2 1 1 and see what happens.
You might also consider contacting a teen hotline for advice. Teen hotlines might be able to connect you to services.
NAMI is another option. NAMI might be able to provide you with some help because of your diagnosis of bipolar.
Some states have live away programs where you can get job training, housing, food, income and sometimes even education. For instance, in California there is the California Conservation Corps. You might want to find out what is available in your state.
Some states also have junior or community colleges where you can live in the residence halls. You would be able to receive financial aid (money) for food, books, etc. because of your lack of income, though your divorce may (or may not) need to be settled first. I have included a link for College of the Redwoods in California to give you an idea. Look for colleges in YOUR state if you do not live in California. (Most colleges charge more money to out-of-state students.) It might take you a few months to get started so this is not necessarily a solution for tomorrow but it would give you a lot of future stability.
Finally, if you obtain an attorney your husband might be willing to negotiate a quick settlement (giving you money) to avoid court. Most lawyers offer a free 30 minute consultation and many lawyers are willing to take a free case now and again...or can refer you to someone who will.
Take care, honey! Believe in yourself and believe in the world! You've had many bad experiences but there is still good in the world and you are strong. Be a good house guest while you are staying with your friend (no drugs, boys, alcohol, screaming or physical fights, etc.) and hopefully you can stay there for the short time it takes you to figure out something else. I've included links below, hopefully one of them will be just what you need!

Isn'T That Wrong I Dno What Kinda Guys Treat Girls Like That But I'M Shocked Please Help
What you've just described is a criminal offense. In which case a 'Public Defender' will be appointed to you if you are not financially capable of hiring an attorney for yourself. they will take everything into consideration to decide if you qualify for one. For instance:
Do you work?
How much money do you make a week?
Do you have any dependents (kids)?
Do you own any property or assets?
If for whatever reason, you do not qualify for a public defender, and you don't have money to hire an attorney for yourself then you can always represent yourself. You will most likely be making a plea anyway. I assume you are not going to try and take this to trial.
'Legal Aid' as you are referring to it- it used more in Civil cases. Not Criminal cases.
Hope this helps. Good Luck!
Can Someone Hire A Criminal Defense Attorney Just For The Preliminary Hearing? That'S All That Can Be Afforded?
We Know There Are No Sufficient Evidence That The Defendant Can Be Charge With So We Just Want An Attorney To Refute The &Quot;Evidence&Quot; And Cross Examine The Witness. That'S All, And We Just Hope The Case Is Dismissed. We Just Have Enough Money To Pay An Attorney For The Prelim Hearing But Not The Rest Of The Trial So We Just Hope He/She Is Good Enough To Get The Case A Dismissal. So Is There Such A Thing?! Or Do We Have To Pay For The Attorney To Represent Us The Entire Time? Oh, And Suppose It Doesn'T Turn Out The Way We Want. Can We Then Request A Public Defender After? We Don'T Want A Pd Because They Will Not Be Appointed Til The Day Of The Hearing And That Is Useless, Plus I Heard They Kind Of Suck. Is That True?! Please Help..Thanks So Much.
Your average public defender is better than your "average" criminal defense attorney. Some private attorneys are absolutely outstanding - and those are the ones with the high retainers. Some private attorneys are terrible and do more harm to their clients than good. The biggest problem with public defenders is they have HUGE caseloads.
There IS sufficient evidence for the defendant to be charged. (The defendant HAS been charged.) My husband likes to joke that you can get a ham sandwich charged with a crime . . . it doesn't take much evidence at all. There might not be sufficient evidence to justify a conviction . . . but this is a completely different issue.
By preliminary hearing, do you mean the arraignment? Is this the first court appearance for the defendant? If this is an arraignment, the defendant will only be required to enter a plea. There will be NO refuting of evidence. There will also not be any witnesses present.
If this is actually a hearing to challenge the validity of the evidence, then yes, you can hire an attorney to represent him for this specific purpose.
