This lawyer will not contact you or keep you informed.
This lawyer won't do his job. He will set you up for failure. He left me in jail 3 months longer than neccessary. He costed me my job. He hasn't once told me a court date. You will go to prison with this lawyer. I want to see my daughter and he won't file the motion with the courts.

Legal Answers

Q. Is it possible to investigate the cause of a fall at a nursing home to determine whether the staff was negligent?
A: Yes, that is certainly possible. I would need more information before I suggest what lengths to go to for an investigation. I will assume that you have some reason to believe that there are circumstances that may amount to either abuse or failure to take proper care. If you are the guardian of the individual, you should first ask the nursing home administration for their version of the facts regarding the fall. If you have a good relationship with an individual on staff there, I would first ask for their information of the event. If you have further questions, you may contact me directly at Thank you, RIchard Hughes
Q. I noticed that my dad (in a nursing home) developed a bed sore. Is this a sure sign of neglect?
A: No. This is not a "sure sign" of neglect but it is a sign to watch for other things that suggest neglect. That is: first, listen to your Father (if he is able to communicate); next, watch for bruises, weight loss and generally signs of abuse; finally, increasing bed sores, infection(s) may suggest neglect. A bed sore should usually not occur with a patient but a single instance is not a "sure sign."
Q. he wants a divorce it's under the active ACA 9-1 2-3 0-1 V I can I di dispute
A: Yes. You can always dispute alleged grounds for divorce. The party that asserts grounds for and seeks a divorce or other relief bears the burden of proof. However, you must timely answer, in writing, denying that grounds or a particular ground exists or you may waive your right to contest the divorce.
