I filed a surcharge appeal from an auto accident and am awaiting a hearing.
In April 2012 I was involved In a small fender bender. An SUV swerved into my lane, without signaling, trying to get around a stopped vehicle turning left. Because of this I struck the rear of his vehicle at a low rate of speed. There was NO damage to the other SUV and minimal damage to my sedan (grille damage estimated at $275) we decided not to pursue. 6 months later I receive notice the other driver is going after my insurance company. I am found at fault and the other driver is paid out $21,000 for a whiplash claim (14 k medical 7 k payout) he did not claim any property damage. I have picture of both vehicles on the day of the accident. And need to gather more evidence to help my appeal. Any suggestions?
What is your basis for an appeal? Your insurance company does not have any motivation to pay more on a claim then they...
How to seal record in Massachusetts after acquittal ?
I was charged with OUI in Massachusetts 2 years ago, however The case finally went to trial and I was found "Not guilty." I will be entering the workforce shortly in the financial services industry, and usually a spotless record is required. I would like to seal my record to minimize the impact of that arraignment however I am unsure on how to proceed. I would also like to know how sealing the record may affect information that private background checking companies may report to my potential future employers.
Good for you, that is a smart thing to do and doing so before sending out job applications is a very good idea. You...

DUI in CO - Moved to Boston. Questions about in-home jail and community service.
I got my 1st DUI in Denver on 12/5/14. I pled guilty on 2/19/15. My lawyer set up a plea deal where the DA would agree to a BAC of .199 (instead of .207) and I would do 10 days of in-home jail in Boston. However, I still have not been sentenced - this will be 5/8/15. Can I organize it and do the 10 days now or do I need to wait until sentencing? I have a lawyer in CO, but he hasn't responded to my voicemails, emails or msgs left with reception. He stopped responding 3 wks ago, right after my DMV hearing. Our contract is through sentencing, so he should still respond. (This is its own issue) Does anyone have any ideas about doing the in home jail? Are you aware of companies that do it in this area? Also, as far as Boston goes, what kinds of places count for community service? Thank you
this sounds strange, my guess is you might be mistaken about what happened in Court. It is possible you got a...

I live in Florida and plan on going back in June or July 2015. Currently I am living in Massachusetts.
I was arrested in Quincy, MA for OUI, first offense. No accident, no injuries. If I resolve my case with a plea, can I do the alcohol substance abuse education program in Florida where I live? Also, I am scheduled to leave the country for Italy next month for a few weeks, can I leave the country before my case gets resolved or do I need the courts permission? If I resolve my case before my scheduled trip, can I leave the country before starting the alcohol substance abuse education program? Or will I need the permission of the probation dept? Thank You.
If you are out on bond or pre-trial release, you should first check with your bondsman and then with your attorney. If...
Can you expunge a " Not Guilty" finding by a judge in a OUI case in regards to your CORI report. It shows on my CORI as Not Guilty however I am in the medical field and think that this will indeed effect my chances of employment. Any legal advice would be greatly appreciated!
Typically if you have no other convictions ever, then you might be able to expunge this not guilty verdict. You really...
