Stepped up to the plate!
I am very pleased with Mr. Cincotta I actually went to visit a different attorney and was then introduced to David Cincotta because the attorney I chose was to busy to take on my issue. David stepped right up to the plate without hesitation, asked all the pertinent questions , then within a weeks "total" time had my issue RESOLVED. He was kind, professional and got right to the point of business. David Cincotta comes highly recommended. Thank you again!

Biography

CUSTOMER SERVICE - David understands the difficultly in making the necessary decisions required in developing an estate plan. Each estate plan varies from individual-to-individual or couple-to-couple. He will help ease any stress you may have by discussing all of the estate planning options that are available to you and the pros and cons of each. David will make it very simple and affordable, and he will tailor your estate plan to your specific requests, needs, and circumstances. You will be surprised at how easy the process is and how little you must do. After you make a few decisions with legal advice from David, he does the rest. Once you have your estate plan prepared by David, you will enjoy peace of mind that your family will be cared for and your intentions will be respected.

CRITICAL ASPECTS OF AN ESTATE PLAN -

* Whom you want to care for your minor children;
* How you want your assets divided at death;
* Whom you want to oversee the administration of your estate; and
* How you want health care decisions to be made on your behalf if you are incapable of making said decisions yourself and whom you want to make those decisions.

Estate planning has many advantages, including minimizing tax burdens, controlling the disposition of valuable assets and family businesses, and discouraging family disputes and litigation.

FREE IN-DEPTH CONSULTATIONS - David will gladly answer every question that you have during a free consultation - in person or over the phone. He will explain all of your options, give you his honest opinion, and quote you a fee. He believes that an informed client is the best client.

Legal Answers
72 Questions Answered
Q. How long can I hold my son in Oklahoma after he signed extradition papers for Kansas
A: If he signed a waiver of extradition, Kansas should have ten (10) days to come get him. They can request an extension, but generally those are only permitted in extreme circumstances. If he has not signed a waiver or waived in front of a judge, then it may be longer.
Q. What does it mean when it says matter striken pending service to be reset by either party?
A: stricken generally means that any hearing that was scheduled to occur has been cancelled for now. It appears that he was required to serve you with notice of the hearing and failed to do so; therefore, the court would not conduct the hearing. The hearing could be reset, but he will have to take steps to first get a new hearing date and then he will have to ensure you are served with a document providing notice of the hearing. The paternity/custody case is independent from any criminal charges he has pending, and the paternity/custody case is not going to necessarily be dropped because he has pending charges. Also, any subpoena you receive to testify in the criminal case will likely be done by the DA's office, and the DA's office has no interest in serving you with anything from his paternity/custody suit. With that said, you could be served anytime on the paternity/custody suit. I recommend you contact a family law attorney to review the paternity/custody suit he has filed, and follow that attorney's advice on how best to handle it.
Q. I just found out the charge I was given that was a felony got repealed am I able to get it off my record
A: The answer to the question you ask varies depending on what is meant by the "charge I was given" and "repealed." If you were previously convicted and sentenced (or previously plead guilty to an offense and your sentencing was deferred) for a felony, you may qualify to get that record expunged. Also, if that crime was a felony and is either no longer a crime or the punishment for the crime was reduced to a misdemeanor, that could be one of several reasons entitling you to relief. If the charge however is not one you previously had but is one that is currently pending (meaning you were not found guilty, did not plead guilty, and it has not been dismissed) and the crime is no longer a crime or the punishment has been reduced to a misdemeanor, you should contact a criminal defense attorney to first get that case resolved. If you have any questions from this response, feel free to contact me directly, and we can look at the specifics of your case.
