Money well spent. So glad we chose Joseph. Joseph provided prompt, knowledgeable, empathetic, and effective assistance when we were more tired than we knew. The courthouse process can be very traumatic and my roommate and i had been exhausting ourselves, trying to learn law and procedure, and the more we learned, the more we learned we have yet to learn. Joseph was an asset we are so glad we invested in.

105 Questions Answered
Q. Retain an attorney for an Appeal of a Replevin / Show Cause hearing. The defendant is my son who has tried to murder me!
A: Assuming that the case was litigated in district court, an appeal could be taken to the circuit court within 30 days. However, it is not clear from the question if the time to file an appeal from the original judgment (as opposed to the decision in the contempt/show cause hearing) has passed. Separately, a cause of action might be available for the alleged murder attempt, depending on what the facts and circumstances are. That would of course also potentially be a criminal matter.
Q. Can a job terminate you for an invalid reason, retract the termination & offer you a different position at a lower rate?
A: Certainly retaliation against an employee because of protected complaints that the employee makes in good faith is a violation of federal and Maryland laws. But every case and situation is different. You should discuss all the facts and circumstances with an attorney who practices employment law.
Q. Good afternoon. This is a mix of landlord-tenant and person injury. I'm from the state of Maryland. Here are the basics
A: It depends on what exactly the libel, fraud, and intimidation were, what the surrounding circumstances were, and what damages you incurred.
