In 2007 I was hit by a drunk driver who fortunately for me was extremely wealthy ($40,000,000). I hired a law firm who assured
me they could file and win a case to not only cover all of my medical bills but also ensure I was financially secure. They gave me two offers, one where they would get 40% and the other where whey would pay all of my medical bills and expenses until the case was over and they would take 60%. I took the ladder. As it then turned out, the very rich man had every penny he owned with Bernie Madoff and he was wiped out. When the law firm I hired realized they were going to lose on the situation, they not only stopped paying my medical bills but also now are suing me for recovery of all back payments they made. They claim I tricked them into the second agreement. I am a 78yo widow and cannot repay them. they constantly call threatening me. What can I do to get these attorneys off me?

What will happen to my bf that got arrested yest. for being drunk and pushing me and breaking my things-don't want him in jail?
My bf is usually a wonderful guy. He came home drunk last night. Trouble started from the minute he walked through the door. He accused me of locking him out, and threw a bag of taco bell that hit me in the head. He broke our door knob when I tried to lock myself in our bedroom, ripped my shirt, and shattered my cell phone screen when I attempted to call the police. He punched 2 holes in our bedroom wall and pushed me on the ground, punched out a light on our ceiling fan. For the first time in the 15 years I have known him I was afraid- the only reason I called the cops. I thought they would calm him down, since he has no other domestic violence calls against him ever. Instead they took him to jail, took pics of our home and put no contact order on him. He is not usually like this.
If you didn't want your boyfriend arrested, you should have left instead of calling police. Any criminal defense lawyer...

According to the Affidavit of Probable Cause the arresting officer observed me operating a vehicle, resulting in OWI. However...
At the top of the Affidavit of Probable Cause it says who the arresting officer is, gives a description of my vehicle, describes my race, etc. Then says that the accused was observed at Dunes State Park operating a vehicle. Yet none of the Preliminary Observations boxes are checked and no reason for stop was explained. Under Accident Information it list 1 vehicle was involved. Minor damage was reported to my own vehicle. Truck was stuck in the sand, w/ the back end off the pavement. In the police report it says that the officer was approached by male subject (me). Being that the officer was approached should indicate that I was outside the vehicle, keys in pocket. Truck was stuck in the sand, off the edge of parking lot. Does saying I am the driver admit guilt? Does officer have true PC?
Part of proving OWI is proving the operation of the vehicle by the accused. If you admitted to driving the vehicle...
How likely is it to get Post Conviction Relief for an OWI that happened in 2008? In NW Indiana. I have evidence that may help.
I received an OWI in 2008. I called for assistance to get my truck that was stuck in sand towed. I approached the officers whom were looking at my truck. They immediately asked questions relating to drinking & driving. I admitted that I had some drinks. Told them I had "too much" and "a lot", which doesn't tell them how many drinks I had. 2 drinks could be "too much" and 4 drinks could be "a lot" for me. They did not know when I drank or when I drove. Could've been 3-4 hours before they arrived or never. They never witnessed me driving. I have a receipt that shows repairs done to my truck, proving the truck was inoperable. I also have a weather print out showing how the weather was that night. Will this help in getting PC? Plus I feel the lawyer i had didn't put much time into the case.
You will not be able to get PCR. All of those facts were know to you before you entered into a plea agreement or were...
Whats going to happened to me if i violate probation maybe for a second time, while on probation for a owi?
so i was put on probation for 1 yr unsupervised for my first owi. after my plea a had a few things to complete one being community service, i didn't do all the hours in time i was violated and didn't go to jail but the judge told me to have everything done by the next time i come to court. i have finished everything and have everything in order. i have court in two days but three days ago i did something stupid and may now be getting a new charge, the cops continue to show up and i think they may now have the evidence they need to charge me. when i go to court i may have a warrant and have to go to jail, how long would i have to sit in jail? what will be the end outcome in all this anyway? i have a attorney but i really think i may have messed up this time, please some advice would help!
You need to talk to your attorney. Your attorney knows all of the conditions and players in your case and give you a...
I am wondering whom I should contact in order to get a list of the laws relating to OWIs in Indiana. I live in Porter County where the laws in this county seem very different to the laws in other counties. It would be helpful to get the laws that the law enforcers (cops, lawyers, judges) follow / apply to people who operate a vehicle while intoxicated. I am curious about the laws because I believe they could be not following standard procedures in order to get arrests. I would need to see the laws for the last five years (from 2008 - 2013). This should be public information. Thanks in advance for your help.
The laws regarding OWI are State Laws. You can find all of them on the internet. This should be a good start. http://...
