  1. It may be a situation where your father has to spend-down his assets to be eligible for medicaid. You can read more about medicaid and costs for long-term care here on FindLaw. That said, your father may want to consult with an elder law attorney before handing over any assets to get a full understanding of what's taking place and what options he may have. You can find a Florida elder law attorney by using FindLaw's Lawyer Directory. Many of the lawyers listed even offer free consultations. Best of luck, and let us know what you find out.
  2. You might try contacting a Michigan bad faith insurance attorney listed in the FindLaw Directory to see if he or she can offer any assistance. Many of the lawyers listed in the Directory even offer free consultations, so there's no harm in making a few calls.
  3. I'm not entirely clear based on your description - are you saying that a title was re-issued in your sister's name, with only your name on that title as the lien-holder? Did you have any kind of note or financing agreement that stated you could repossess the collateral in event of default?
  4. As harrylime mentioned, if your brother died without a will, his assets should have passed according to statute - usually to parents, siblings, children. You can read more about intestacy: dying without a will here on FindLaw. I would also agree that one cannot make himself or herself someone's PoA - that's granted by the principal (your brother). You might ought to speak with a local probate attorney who can review the facts and advise you of your options for action (if any). You can find a Massachusetts probate attorney by using FindLaw's Lawyer Directory. Many of the attorneys listed even offer free consultations. Best of luck, and let us know what you find out.
  5. PleasHelp said...Sorry if all of that sounded to confusing. The bottom line is Pa will not allow me to add a motorcycle permit to my license until I pay the $100 NC restoration fee and take the DWI classes that NC never told me about from 17 years ago. It's so unfair and making me sick to my stomach. I really can't see how NC can do this to me. I would be willing to pay the fine I suppose but having to take DWI classes 17 years later seems so absurd. There just has to be something I can do somebody I can contact to help me. I don't quite see it as unfair. If you were required by law to pay a fee and attend classes, then that's what you need to do. It's frankly surprising that you were able to ever re-instate your PA license with that hold in place from North Carolina. The only other suggestion I can offer is to speak with a DUI Defense attorney in North Carolina. He or she might be able to offer you some suggested alternatives. You can even find a North Carolina DUI Defense attorney by using FindLaw's Lawyer Directory. Many of the attorneys listed even offer free consultations. Best of luck, and let us know what you find out.
  6. You might want to try reviewing New York's Rules of Civil Procedure. Practice guides, available at your local law library, are also good sources of information.
  7. As the previous poster mentioned, non-compete agreements can be held enforceable, but there's no way anyone here can speak to the enforceability of your agreement. You would need to review it with a local attorney who can review all the facts of the situation properly. You might also find it helpful to read, generally, about non-compete agreements here on FindLaw. You can speak with a Springfield, Missouri business law attorney who can review the document for you and advise you appropriately by using FindLaw's Lawyer Directory. Many of the attorneys listed even offer free consultations. Best of luck.
  8. In light of the gravity of the situation as well as the time limits involved, I think (your son?) really ought to speak with a different criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to protect whatever rights he may have in this situation. You can find a Tennessee criminal defense attorney by using FindLaw's Lawyer Directory. Many of the attorneys listed even offer free consultations, so there's no harm in making a few calls. Best of luck.
  9. Have you gotten in touch with anyone at the insurance company and provided proof of payment? You may need to speak with a supervisor/management if the people taking your calls aren't helpful. If you have records/proof of payment then you ought to get in touch the insurance company and have them re-instate your policy. If the company isn't helpful then consider contacting Louisiana's Department of Insurance to file a complaint.
  10. madmommer said... i need someone who is licensed in MD to help me. What is it, exactly, that you're wanting to do? File a civil suit against this person?
  11. What is your legal question? If someone stole your property, that would be considered theft. Or are you asking something else?
  12. Do you have a legal question you'd like answered? No one here can read minds.
  13. Do you have a legal question you'd like answered?
  14. achtgman said... In Indiana the constriction has been amended What exactly has been amended? achtgman said... Job description does not include traffic. Who gives them this power? Gives them what power? Generally, to form a police force, that authority is granted by the state.
  15. You might want to consider reading through the materials available here at FindLaw on medical malpractice claims to get an idea of what they are and when they're actionable. From there you can assess your own situation and decide if further action is necessary. Additionally, if you believe there is an actionable claim, you ought to get in touch with a local medical malpractice attorney. Many of the lawyers listed in the FindLaw Directory even offer free consultations, so there's no reason not to make a few calls. Best of luck, and let us know what you find out.
  16. March83 said... how can they do that with no new charges and no failed drugtest just HEARSAY? If your sister was still on probation at the time then it was probably acceptable. March83 said... So tell me how has she been tried and convicted and sentenced before the charge that was to violate her probation inthe first place hasnt even been to court and her tried and convicted? That didn't make a whole lot of sense, but from your description, it sounds like an additional condition was added to her probation, she violated the probation, and was punished as a result of the violation of the probation.
  17. Because you already entered your plea and were sentenced your options are likely limited. You can review FindLaw's materials on Appeals and Post-Conviction Remedies to get an idea of the procedures that exist and under what circumstances they can be pursued. I would strongly suggest, however, consulting with a local legal professional licensed to practice law in your state. He or she should have the knowledge and experience to tell you what you can do. chuck901 said... do I go through the same public defenders office If they're still willing to assist you, try that route. chuck901 said... or can I do it on my own? You can certainly try, but I would try to at least get a Florida professional's thoughts on the matter. chuck901 said... I can not afford a private laywer. You might be able to at least talk it over with a Florida criminal defense attorney listed in the FindLaw Directory by taking advantage of the free consultations that many offer. Best of luck.
  18. helpMNlaw said...he is no longer able to fire his public defender and hire this other attorney to represent him in this case. Is that exactly what was said? An individual typically can fire an attorney and hire another at any time. That said, if he's already entered his plea then there may not be much that can be done at this stage. helpMNlaw said...Or if there is some way around what they are saying? Truthfully, the private attorney is in the best position to know the answer to this question. He should be able to investigate and find out at what stage the prosecution is at and what the client can do.
  19. teranish said...Is it legal to A) tow my vehicle? You didn't mention the state, but yes, in most states law enforcement officers have the authority to have vehicles abandoned on the side of the road towed. teranish said... search my vehicle? It's customary (and generally legal) for an officer to do an inventory search of a vehicle when it's being impounded.
  20. Just_Curious_00 said...if it was legal for me to wear them in public or even at a public high school? please help soon thanks It might not be legal. Basically, it will depend on whether the belt buckle is considered a weapon. I don't see anything in Louisiana's revised statutes that says that it is, but I don't see anything that says that it isn't either. The danger here is if you were to wear such a belt buckle, and it was considered to be a weapon, you could be charged with the illegal carrying of weapons under Louisiana's RS 14:95 statute. Quite a risk to take simply for looks.
  21. Arkansas statute 5-13-301 seems to be the applicable statute: "5-13-301. Terroristic threatening. (a) (1) A person commits the offense of terroristic threatening in the first degree if: (A) With the purpose of terrorizing another person, the person threatens to cause death or serious physical injury or substantial property damage to another person; or ( With the purpose of terrorizing another person, the person threatens to cause physical injury or property damage to a teacher or other school employee acting in the line of duty. (2) Terroristic threatening in the first degree is a Class D felony. ( (1) A person commits the offense of terroristic threatening in the second degree if, with the purpose of terrorizing another person, the person threatens to cause physical injury or property damage to another person. (2) Terroristic threatening in the second degree is a Class A misdemeanor. © (1) (A) Upon pretrial release of the defendant, a judicial officer shall: (i) Enter a no contact order in writing consistent with Rules 9.3 and 9.4 of the Arkansas Rules of Criminal Procedure; and (ii) Give notice to the defendant of penalties contained in Rule 9.5 of the Arkansas Rules of Criminal Procedure. ( The no contact order under subdivision ©(1)(A) of this section remains in effect during the pendency of any appeal of a conviction under this section. © The judicial officer or prosecuting attorney shall provide a copy of the no contact order under subdivision ©(1)(A) of this section to the victim and arresting agency without unnecessary delay. (2) If the judicial officer has reason to believe that mental disease or defect of the defendant will or has become an issue in the cause, the judicial officer shall enter such orders as are consistent with § 5-2-305." Depending on exactly what you're charged with, if convicted, you would be guilty of either a misdemeanor or a felony. Generally, for a misdemeanor offense, one can be imprisoned for a period of up to one year as well as be subject to fines. For a felony offense, in general, one can be imprisoned for a period in excess of one year and possibly be subject to fines. milklvr said...I was cohersed under duress into admitting to the crime what can I expect the outcome to be.I am very concerned as a matter of fact I am scared I would suggest that you speak with a local criminal defense attorney sooner rather than later. He or she can address any statements you made to law enforcement and help prepare your defense. You can find an Arkansas criminal defense attorney by using FindLaw's Lawyer Directory. Many of the lawyers listed even offer free consultations, so there's no harm in making a few calls. Best of luck.
  22. I'd suggest contacting the administrators of the programs in question and direct these inquiries their way. They'd be in the best position to tell you of the eligibility for benefits.
  23. What is your legal question? Also, could you be more clear about your issue? Are you stating that you paid your auto insurance premium and then it was cancelled for non-payment?
  24. jess25love said... Who is at fault? Clearly, the thief. I'm unfamiliar with the laws in Mississippi but if he's permitted to crush cars without proof of ownership then I don't know what liability he would have. jess25love said... Where do I start? Start what? Have you reported the car as stolen/destroyed to your insurance company?
  25. I would agree with others in that this smells like a scam. I wouldn't advise sending any money to anyone until you've had time to review everything. You might even want to contact a few attorneys for their advice on the matter. You can do so by using FindLaw's Lawyer Directory.
