Q. I've hired a lawyer for divorce & child custody to find out my wife used him against me in child custody beforewe marrie
A: This is a potential conflict of interests which should have been disclosed prior to representation and waved in writing by both you and your wife. This must occur before representation can begin. He should return the money and refrain from representing either party. www.milazolaw.com
Q. My niece has been arrested in Fayette County Tennessee for child abuse. Does she need a lawyer?
A: Yes. She absolutely needs an attorney. Child abuse is a horrible crime for which sympathy is rarely granted. Whether your niece is guilty of the offense for which he is charged, or if she is wrongfully accused; she needs to be represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney. A good Criminal Defense Attorney can help her explain her position and plan her defense strategy. She should not speak with DCS, law enforcement or anyone else about this other than through her attorney. Please see my website at www.milazolaw.com
