Legal Answers
29 Questions Answered

Q. if you didnt get the right to face your accuser in trial is that a violation of any kind in federal court
A: Without knowing more it’s hard to address your question. Generally there is a right to confrontation.
Q. i was recently convicted of assaualt resulting in serious bodily injury in which there was,no statement by the vicvictim
A: There isn’t a question posted here. What is your question?
Q. My bf has a public defender and is locked up facing some very serious charges. The pd is not doing what we need.
A: It is going to be impossible to even ball park a fee because I don’t know the charge, the criminal history, or the stage of the case.
Q. My 16 year old was charged with 3rd degree assault. No priors she is a good kid. What do I need to do??
A: This is a serious felony offense. The best thing you can do for your daughter is help her retain an attorney. An attorney will be able to ensure her rights are protected and may even be able to keep this from resulting in a conviction.
Q. if i was woke up to my girlfriend yelling and throwing stuff
A: The smart move would be to get a lawyer retained. Crimes of domestic violence require an arrest, but a lawyer may be able to help make that process easier. In addition, crimes of domestic violence carry many collateral consequences you will want to try to avoid.
Q. My daughter recieved a speeding ticket, 39in a 30 on Sept 27, 2019, finally recieved a notice to pay today.
A: She will have to resolve the ticket one way or another. Simply ignoring it for several months doesn’t make it go away. A lawyer may be able to assist her in resolving the ticket without it ending up on her record.
Q. Daughters coworker assaulted her at work. What can we do?
A: If she wants to pursue charges reporting it to police is the way to go. If you are thinking about a civil suit... what are the damages?
Q. receive no insurance ticket in Minnesota, on probation for dui currently should I fight it?
A: A common condition of probation for a DWI is that you not have any driver’s license or insurance violations. This ticket could result in a probation violation. I recommend having an attorney assist you to minimize the consequences of this ticket.
Q. Hello, i have a Master hearing today, so i was wondering because i don't have a lawyer yet. Must i have lawyer today?
A: You never have to have a lawyer, just like you don't need to have a doctor to do surgery. You will probably get better results if you have a professional, but you can try to do it yourself. I would recommend getting an attorney ASAP. If you are in deportation proceedings you are at risk of being detained and deported. You should not be trying to handle this on your own.
