They Specialize In Your Type Of Case The law is usually tricky and therefore requires specialists to tackle the tough cases.

Texas Deferred Adjudicatoin On Dui Felony?
Now...With Texas, I Was Able To Get Under A Little Legal Loop Hole That Allowed Me A Deferred Adjudication For A Dui Felony. I Have Finished My Probation, And The Case Is Dismissed And I Am Not Found Guilty. However, I Did Plead Guilty To The Cause To Get The Deferred Rather Than Jail Time. I Am Reading Alot Of Misleading Information That Says Yes It Can Be Expunged...And No It Can'T Be, Only An Order Of Disclosure. So I Am Unsure Exactly What I Can Do. I Of Course Want It Expunged. It Was First Ever Offense And Will Be My Last. Never In Trouble With The Law, In College, And Want To Wipe The Slate Clean. Of Course Lawyers Say Once Its Dismissed It Won'T Be On Your Record. Wrong..It Will Be, My Question Is This, Is It Possible To Expunge A Dui Felony In The State Of Texas And I Know There Is A 5 Year Waiting Period To Do So. But Is It Possible And What Steps To Take. Like I Said...So Much Misleading Information I Can'T Find A Straight Forward Answer. Hoping That Maybe Someone Out There Is Either A Lawyer, Paralegal, Or Someone Who Has Done The Same Thing. Any Help Would Be Appreciative.
Texas law states that a felony DUI conviction cannot be expunged. However, the Texas code of criminal procedure Art 55.01 states that an offense that results in a acquittal or a conviction and pardon is eligible to be expunged. Your case was dismissed after deferred adjudication and there was no conviction, so I understand your confusion. Even though for the sake of argument you have an attorney who attempts to find a loophole to get you eligible to apply, here's your problem.
Texas identifies your offense as a felony due to aggravating factors:
(a) 3rd offense
(b) driving while intoxicated with a child under 15 in the vehicle
(c) an accident with serious injuries
So, IMHO, even if you are eligible to apply, I believe you would be denied due to an aggravated felony with injuries or endangering the life of a child. I know this is not the answer you are looking for but it is an honest assessment based on the facts you provided.
Question : Does Anyone Know Of A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Or Law M.D. In Boston...Preferably A Female???
Question : Does Anyone Know Of A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Or Law M.D. In Boston...Preferably A Female???
Question Details: I Had A Baby 9Months Ago And Seriously Can'T Get Over The Horrible Experience. I Have Never Sued Or Brought Legal Action Against Anyone. It Would Take Me Alot More Than This Paragraph To Explain The Whole Situation-But Its Very Complicated With Several Different Issues. Basicly As A Result I Feel Like My Life Is Ruined. I Have A Beautiful Healthy Baby But Can'T Move Past Everything....I Know I'M Being Vague But Any Referrals Or Assistance You Can Give Would Be Great. Also If Anyone Knows If There Are Any Online Groups Or Boards W/Other People Seeking Action Against Their Ob Or Md I Would Love To Speak To Others. Part Of The Problem Is The Serious Emotional Distress That Accompanied This Whole Mess-I'M Actually Ashamed To Say I Thought Most People Claiming This Weren'T Being Honest-But Now See Malpractice In A Whole New Light. I Guess Because Our Society Is So &Quot;Lawsuit&Quot; Happy I Had Trouble Allowing Myself To Truly Believe That I Was Not Treated Correctly. Thanks So Much.
i'm not from the boston area, but i would recommend you contact the massachussetts bar association. they have a referral service. most often, you will only do a consultation over the phone free of charge. they'll tell you if they want you to come in if they feel you have a good case. that being said, almost all medical malpractice suits involve serious misconduct or neglect by the hospital and/or provider. psychological issues may not fly unless you've undergone extensive counseling (or can otherwise demonstrate this distress -- loss of job, etc) due to some serious (and unusual) circumstances caused by the hospital (or doctor). they're an extremely expensive form of litigation and most attorneys aren't going to help you unless you've got a strong case, money to finance it yourself or they're in a large firm that can afford to pay upfront costs. but again, unless you're case is a strong one, you're unlikely to get a big cash payoff, which throws into question the point of pursuing litigation. the attorney you speak to may only recommend that you file a complaint with the medical board in your state. it may not sound like much, but at least you can know your concerns will be documented with the right people. good luck
Do We Have Grounds For A Personal Injury Case & How To Find A Good Lawyer?
My Husband Went To The Emergency Room With A Piece Of Metal In His Eye From Welding And While The Male Nurse Was Prodding In My Husband'S Eye He Stopped To Reposition Himself And Accidently Stuck Himself Inshis Hand And Then Proceeded To Dig In My Husband'S Eye. Shortly After He Hurried Us Out & We Tried To Shrug This Off But The Hospital Has Called Harassing My Husband Saying He Will Be Arrested If He Doesn'T Come Have His Blood Drawn. A Day Later The Nurse Called Apologizing And Offering My Husband A Reward To Come Get Blood Drawn. What Can We Do? Seems Pretty Ridiculous That The Nurse Couldn'T Take A Second To Get A New Needle.
If the nurse stuck himself with that needle and then put it in your husband's eye then you have a law suit in the making. You need a lawyer. You also need to get specifics as to exactly what blood test the hospital is talking about and you need to have it done but not at that hospital or any clinic or Dr. affiliated with it. This could be serious so get an expert.
Help With Legal Advice?????
About Three Weeks Ago My So Called Friend And Neighbor Ran Over And Killedmy Beloved Dog Of 13 Years. He Says It Was An Accident, But Hasnt Offered Anything To Help With The Vet Bills Or Burial Costs. Needless To Say I Want To Rip The Jerks Throat Out, But He Isnt Worth Going To Prison Over. My Question Is Do I Have Any Legal Recourse To Take Him To Court To Sue For Damages Or Do I Have To Get Even The Old Fashioned Way? I Hope Karma Deals With Him In A Most Despicable Way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
your dog is considered your property... its a rather cold way of constituting what your pet is to you, but that is the law. So, if someone destroyed your property, you have a right for your propery to either be returned to you (in this case impossible for your beloved pet is dead) or be given restitution for its loss. I know that much. So, yes... I do beleive you may take legal action against that heartless b-stard who is your neighbor - but first, you have to be able to prove that it was his fault (reckless driving, drunken driving, etc.) then I beleive you may sue him for
(1) the actual cost of the dog
(2) the veterenary bills
(3) the funeral
(4) your immeasurable pain and anguish
Never had to do this myself but I did hear on the news just the other day that this criminal who shot and killed a cop and the cop's canine partner was going to be booked for murder (of the police man) and damage to government property (for the killed police dog). So... why not call a lawyer? I certainly would! Its bad enough to have lost your dog - but to be saddled with all the bills too? That's just too much.
Why Is It Legal For Lawyers To Lie?
I'M Not Saying That They Are Allowed To Make Things Up, But They Can Do Something Just As Disgusting. For Example, If Someone Murders Someone, They Get A Lawyer, And Then Admit That They Murdered A Person. The Lawyer Is Not Required To Admit This Information To Anyone, But Actually To Deny It In Court. If The Same Criminal Indulged The Same Information To A Friend Who Was Then Questioned, They Would Be Held In Contempt Of Court If They Didn'T Tell The Truth. I Understand That Everyone Has The Right To An Attorney, But How Is That Okay?
It isn't legal for a lawyer to lie.
In fact, unlike most people, a lawyer can be disbarred and lose his entire livelihood if caught lying. A lawyer cannot legally say anything at trial that he knows to be untrue, nor present any evidence that he knows to be perjured.
Remember, pleading 'not guilty' is NOT the same thing as saying "I didn't do it." It is the lawyers job to make the government PROVE that you did what they claim you did.
Second Offense Dui In Michigan?
My Father Was Found Slumped Over In His Truck On Tuesday Night In A Parking Lot And Refused To Take A Breathalyzer Test. Instead, The Police Took Him To The County Jail And Did A Blood Test Instead. He Has A Court Date On The 27Th Of This Month. Considering This Still Counts As A Dui (I Believe), What Would The Sentence Be? My Mom Told Me He Had A Dui Once Before A Long Time Ago. Any Help Would Be Great, Thanks.
Michigan DUI Law
Of the 1,155 traffic fatalities on Michigan highways in 2004, 329 involved a driver with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or greater, which is over the legal limit. 201 of those deaths involved a driver who had a concentration of more than twice the legal limit.
Michigan makes it illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration of greater than .08. Additionally, it is illegal to operate a motor vehicle while you are “visibly impaired” by alcohol or other drugs.
First Conviction: The first conviction is a misdemeanor. The court has discretion to apply any or all of the following penalties: up to 360 hours of community service, up to 93 days in jail, and a fine of $100 - $500.
Second Conviction in 7 Years: The second conviction is also a misdemeanor. This time the court will apply a fine of $200 - $1,000 and either (1) a jail term of 5 days – 1 year (48 hours of which must be served consecutively) or (2) 30 – 90 days of community service or (3) some combination of the two.
Third Conviction in 10 Years: This conviction is a felony. The court will fine you $500 - $5,000. Additionally the court will either sentence you to (1) 1 – 5 years in prison or (2) 30 days – 1 year in jail, plus 60 – 180 days of community service. Finally, on the third conviction, Michigan may take possession of your car and sell it at auction.
** in some states, if you are above the legal limit, with the key in the ignition, it is still considered a DUI regardless if the vehicle is actually turned on**
Seriously try to talk your dad into counseling. Not only is he putting his life in danger, but all those around him. Good luck!
