What the fuck is my lawyer doing?

My parents died about 7 years ago now, while I was still a teenager. My brother and I were supposed to inherit everything, but our aunt went insane and tried to steal all of our shit. She was working with other people ("family friends") and they stole a lot of physical possessions. Then she tried to alter the will and sell off our parents' land and other things. Then she died too (left us nothing, but that is besides the point). We tried to claim the land and a house, but because of our aunt's meddling these things got tied up in disputes. So my brother and I went through all of her shit, found the necessary paperwork to prove things belonged to us, and then went to a lawyer.

The lawyer was amazing. He is well known in the area and was able to get us basically everything. He has charged us for his work a couple times, but it is always drastically less than what he should be charging. We are towards the end of this process now (I believe?) and last we talked to him (maybe a year ago) he said he was waiting on some tax returns on the land so that we could either get money back, or pay any taxes that are due. So now we have a life changing amount of money sitting in an estate account. We've each already taken a small portion out (which helped us both drastically, our parents were alcoholic hoarders and we lived in poverty until we were adults) and things are okay.

But when does this process end? When is it okay to take all the money and never talk to the lawyer again? He's a great guy, but I just want this to be over. I get the feeling like this dude was just doing us a favor, and doesn't care if we take all this money and leave him alone now. But I don't know. I thought about contacting him again and just asking him bluntly how much money he wants and if this process is done. I don't know what to say though. For all I know he's about to retire and just say fuck it.

>tl;dr: A lawyer has been helping my brother and I get our inheritance. It's been a long process that has taken almost a decade now. We've pretty much got everything and I think it's over. He doesn't contact us much, we don't know how to pay him now, or even if he wants to get paid. What do?

Thanks for any advice. I want to do things right, and I don't want to fuck up and end up destitute or something.

What country/state are you in OP? The law differs depending on jurisdiction, but in my area, contract law has a lot to do with knowingly committing a crime.
I'd say you're pretty fine, since you seem to have made a reasonable effort to make contact with him, so if he hasn't made a reasonable attempt to retrieve payment, it will likely be seen as abandoned. It's not like you've tried something sneaky to fuck him over or anything like that, but do go back over any documents to make sure there's nothing you've missed.

It's been a while since i dealt with contracts but I recall something about not knowing what you were signing if you were underage or not knowledgeable about the law, which requires him to get you to seek advice of an independent party, since he is both your legal advisor and a party in the contract if there was payment, but yeah probably go see another lawyer about it as they'd know your areas laws better.

I work at a private firm based in DC (though we practice throughout MD and VA) and I see cases like yours and OP's all the time.

You won't have a valid license until it's resolved (and likely for some time after that), there will be other repercussions though. If there's unpaid restitution of some sort your odds of extradition are much higher, and there can be loads of financial consequences as you will be pursued for the debt.

With an outstanding warrant, you're going to be a beacon for cops, don't attempt to purchase a vehicle, a firearm, or attempt to obtain any form of certification or license. Any encounter you have with law enforcement will be considerably prolonged. You'll spend the weekend in jail while they weigh the idea of extraditing you for just about any brush with the law you may have.

And perhaps the biggest note is that the vast majority of employers and institutions of higher education will find out on a rudimentary background check and you will be blacklisted from most jobs.

I talk to people in your situation almost every day, and it is truly in your best interest to deal with this NOW

Hi, I was awaiting a trail/sentencing for an OWI 3rd in WI, and I had a suspended license (apparently). I didn't know the license was suspended though, because I thought that they didn't do that until the sentencing and everything was complete.

I got a bailjumping and had been drinking again, was put in jail for 2 days, then got out on a signature bond. I have court again on Monday (for the bailjumping).

I have a lawyer for the OWI 3rd, and I assumed he was going to be "transferred" over to the bailjumping, but apparently not. I don't really know anything about legal issues or anything, and I struggle with depression and anxiety, so I have a hard time reaching out and such, even to my detriment. They only put me as bailjumping, not an OWI 4th (unless they tack that on after too)

When I go on Monday, can I plead not guilty to the bailjumping, or are they just going to put me back in jail? Is this a whole new case or how does it all work?

Sorry if there's not much info, or I didn't explain things well. As said, it's hard for me to do all this, and I'm in a really bad place. I know none of these are excuses or anything.

I should have probably talked to my lawyer and had him be there, but if it's just the first appearance for this, I thought I didn't need him or that he would already be notified of it.

In a way, I would kind of like to just go to jail and get the stuff behind me. I know I was going to jail for the OWI 3rd (for the 2nd I had community service, so I guess I kept fucking up, thinking I was invincible or something). The lawyer already said that. Now I have to do all this pre-trial programming and pay money out the ass, so I kind of just want it all done.

Maybe I was just sabotaging myself subliminally.

Also on Monday, it says "Initial Appearance" for the Bailjumping, so that's also why I thought I just had to show up and plead not guilty...

how risky is buying drugs off the dark net? if caught buying small personal amounts do they charge you with crazy ass shit like trafficking and mail fraud? what happens if you get caught but they just send a seizure notice and a letter to you, does that mean you can never buy off it again from that address? can you just open a po box if that happens and be safe again?

Using the mail system and ordering from other states make it a federal issue, so if caught I’d imagine yes, you’d be looking at federal sentencing. But I’m not a lawyer and honestly don’t know much on the subject.

My friend has some legal issues, and he believes that theres a conspiracy in the local court system to fuck him over and give him max penalty. A few years back he fucked this big shot lawyer, one of the biggest in the state over hard and owes him thousands of dollars. Me and my friends have used this lawyer frequently and have gotten ridiculously good deals when we used him.

So now hes getting completely fucked around for some DUI, his lawyer (not the same one he fucked over) didn't show up to court and theyre threatening to give him max penalty over some bs .01 over the legal limit.

He thinks that theres a big conspiracy to fuck him over and keep him away from his kids because he fucked the first lawyer over really hard. He thinks that all the lawyers and judges are in bed with eachother and the lawyers basically act as a middle man between the judge and you.

How plausible is this?

It is plausible. I so I would not necessarily call it conspiracy per se. But stuff like this is really nothing really new. I would say if because the attorney did not show up and the reason for possible max penalty is simply because of that. If stated in court. He may consider firing the attorney if he is not being represent properly in the future.

Hey my friends, Im hoping you could give me some advice here. Recently got job as a long haul truck driver. It's cool as hell, I love it.

Anyway two week ago my company had me delivering in the Bronx NY. It was a shitshow. I got stuck, called NY police to help me get out. Wasn't able to deliver at original location, bad time all around. But it gets worse.

So I'm crossing back over the George Washington bridge back into the upper level of hell we call New Jersey and I sideswipe a garbage truck (we're both in turning lanes getting to close). Motherfucker takes my right mirror clean off. We both curse at each other and keep driving. I drive all the way to my new delivery location and unload.

So I guess all the garage trucks up there have video cameras on them because about an hour later I start getting calls from this Jersey cop investigating the incident and now I'm charged with hit and run/failing to report a crime.

How should I handle this situation? My court date is about a month away and I'm still hauling ass around the country. I called the court clerk and she said I can plead my case by mail if I want but I have no idea what to do. Can a lawyer help me with one? I think a hit and run is possible jail/probably take my license. I know I fucked up but nobody was hurt and this guy clearly didn't pull over either. You can't pull over anywhere on the GW Bridge.

Any advice would be so appreciated right now. Thanks in advance.

Take pictures of the missing mirror. The company you work for, proof of the work
$$ spent to replace the mirror. The Hit and run generally I would say falls on the one who caused the accident. Possibly, person and company thought it a best idea to make a complaint ASAP. If you do not think you were wrong I would call the investigator/officer and try to meet with somebody. If there were enough time to stop and curse at each other, could have had enough time to exchange information. Did you company file some insurance claim s well.

I am sure the video would show, the ruck taking out your mirror. If you did not make a mistake, the video should show at least that basically the mirror was taken out. And surely you could back that up with minimal proof, even if the other persons video does not show that. You do not want to have a hi 'n' run on your record. Ask the clerk what the charges actually are as well as the police.

If it comes to court meet with the DA, if you can beforehand. He'she may request to the judge that the case be dropped.

The fine, hit and run, failure to report are criminal offenses, which at least the first could result in jail time. So be proactive.

guys what happens if i have a dui case here and i want to move to another state and im in a really big hurry? i dont care if i come back where i live so i don't care about a warrant or anything

if i go to sentencing and get charged and they make go to classes/meetings can i just skip out on them and if i have a residence in my new city can i have an attorney tell a judge that and have my classes transferred over?

if i just say fuck court and leave now and they put a warrant out for arrest and shit is there any way to get my license back without having to come back? like can a lawyer handle the case for me then the judge can charge me from there and i just get any probation, punishment, fines, classes and shit like that transferred over to my new state/county? I live in the middle of nowhere and i CANNOT live without a license there's no taxi or bus for fucking miles and there's no jobs or people for like 30 miles and i have no one to help out except parents who work full time.

my charges are:

  1. dwai first offense, or dui i don't know
  2. driving while on drugs or some shit
  3. imprudent speed

also why the fuck do i have 2 duis in one? also when i went to my arraignment i told my judge id show up on a certain date to pay my fine am i required to? am i required to ever pay the fine if i just live far away anyway?

Accidently backed into my good friend/roomates car in the driveway at our house. It left a small dent on his rear quarter panel. Although its small it looks like an expensive fix because you can't just pull it out. He's not mad but definitely wants it fixed and paid for by me.

Whats the best way to go about this? He says I should call my insurance company and let them know what happened but I'm worried they are going to tell me I have to file a police report. Will I get a citation for causing an accident if I go this route? I'm debating if it would be better to take it to a shop and pay out the ass to get it fixed or call my insurance and pay the deductible.

guys how do i go about hiring a lawyer? what if the lawyer for a specific crime doesnt exist in my town do i just get one in a town an hour away?

how do i know which ones are good and which ones shit and how much i should be paying and shit. do you haggle down lawyers like you do cars at dealerships? is it possible to go with a cheap one?

what happens if i get a free court appointed lawyer because "i cant afford it" and then later down the line start shitting myself and deciding to dip into my savings for a lawyer?

do i just call around and for rates? ive tried before and i never got a call back from a lawyer i just got a secretary who asked for information and wrote down my number and then nothing ever happened after

would it be possible to get a good quality lawyer for like 500-1500? can you predict the cost of a lawyer or does it depend on how many court dates you get? can you get a lawyer and pay it off in like 6 months or something or does it all have to be done upfront? also i live in a small town and none of the lawyers have reviews or rating or anything

Well depends on as many qyestions. court appointed attonrenys can be just on the same side as,, practicing on their future Prosecuting law endeveaurers. Just as paid criminal defence attorneys could be as bad.

Basically it depends. Check attorneys law practices. Civil rights, criminal defence attorneys can be a good choice, depending on a lot of things. Basic criminal defence attorneys. Google names of attorneys near you, in a small town, soem amy be friends with prosecuting attorneys, but that does not mean they will side with the prosecution any more so. They would ask you basics and likely say they would accept the case and give you a figure. Don't really knnow, always defended myself as an adult. Made edeals with prosecutors, agreeing
to plead guilty in a manner that was basically fair for the most part.

sorry for all the questions but is there a way to tell how good the lawyer is besides just a free consultation like does the bar hold statistics or something like that where you can base lawyers based on how well they have done in cases

how do i find out if a lawyer is really skilled in the crime im being arrested for like a lawyer that has the most experience dealing with that crime. is it better to hire old lawyers like ones that have been in practice for longer doing it or what?

Is there any legal difference between direct downloads (like from mega or similar sites) and torrenting when it comes to piracy? I read once that Direct downloading was less likely to be prosecuted because you're just downloading something someone else uploaded, whereas when you torrent you're technically uploading while you download so it's worse, or easier to prosecute or something.

Either way DDLs have to be less likely to be monitored than torrents right? there's no way they could possibly monitor all that exchange of data. Or could they?

Today I just got a missed called from my local police station. I called the number back and the receptionist basically told me to fuck off and wait til I get another call.

This has ruined my whole day, I've been a nervous wreck, I can't stop thinking about what the phone call might have been about. Maybe it was just a wrong number, or maybe I'm being charged with god only knows. I haven't even done anything that might but me in trouble with the law.

I'm scarred shitless and I can't stop worrying about what they want. I can't sleep. I can't even play video games, all I can do is worry.

Why haven't they even bothered to call back? I can't stand the uncertainty.

How worried should I be? Do I need to contact a lawyer?
