Attorney Kevin C. Ferry
About Attorney Kevin C. FerryI am 43 years old and have lived in Avon, Connecticut my entire life. My practice is centered around personal injury and medical malpractice litigation. Competitive sports were the spring board for a career in litigation. I have been a competitive athlete as long as I remember and was the only athlete in the State to earn All State Honors in two sports in 1983: Track and Field and Soccer. I have coached girls soccer for six years, earned a "D" coaching license and earned three State Championships at the youth level, Currently I race for a NASTAR team at Ski Sundown and sponsor local youth teams in New Britian and Berlin and have been a team member/walker and major contributor to the American Breast Cancer Association for the last four years. LAW IS MUCH LIKE SORTS. Success in trial or at the negotiating table takes preparation, desire, commitment and skill. My entire staff of employees exude these attributes.

Q. If my landlord does not fix something. That i have been telling him about. And i get hurt because he didn't fix it.
A: Even if you never told your landlord about the dangerous condition that caused you injury, you may have a legal remedy. In your case, the landlord has actual knowledge of a dangerous condition and that makes your case stronger. If you did not advise of the condition in writing and the landlord disputes being told, you will left to your proof. Also, the test for negligence is whether a person acted reasonably in light of all of the circumstances. So the period of time that elapsed between you telling the landlord of the condition and the injury is important as is the level of danger the condition exposed you to. There are a number of other factors which would also factor in here. The dangerous condition could have been in violation of the BOCA code or the landlord could have had other tenants injured by a similar condition. There are many shades of grey in the law and especially when we are talking about premises defects causing injury.
Q. WHAT DOES SUPENDED TIME REALLY MEAN ON A SENTENCE OF 6 SUS AFTER 3YRS 3 PROB
A: During the three year probation period a violation could result in having to serve the additional three years. The sentence you write about is six years to serve, suspended after three followed by three years of probation. Three years is hanging over head until the probationary period is over.
Q. Do I need a lawyer for larceny in the sixth degree ?
A: Any intelligent lawyer will say yes. The saying goes, only a fool has himself for a client. However, if you have no criminal history and are willing to burn a get out of jail free card, you can apply for a program to keep your record clean. That is something that can be done without counsel, however, every case and every person's situation is so different that it is almost never a good idea to handle a criminal matter by yourself.
Q. Does people that were involved in a crime that had there case nolle have to help pay restitution
A: No, the person who plead guilty or was found guilty will be responsible for the entire amount. A Nolle is not entered with conditions attached, such as restitution.
