Legal Answers
Q. I Live in Washington state . My ex girlfriend filed for a restraining order and accused me of Stuff I didn’t do .
A: Sorry to hear. It would be a good idea to be represented by a lawyer. Cease all contact with her. In this type of scenario, things can quickly spiral out of control while you remain unrepresented. Best of luck.
Q. An inmate in the county jail Yakima Washington wants me to be his POA to negotiate a plea bargain for him
A: I agree with Mr. Earl. I will add that there is a good possibility that a non-attorney would unknowingly do something or say something that would make matters worse for the defendant. These are very delicate situations. Best of luck.
Q. why would a possession of stolen proprty charge be turned into a felony
A: Sorry to hear. The State may have determined that the value of the dog exceeded $750, which would result in a felony charge. The value of the dog is one of many potential issues that a criminal defense attorney can fight. It would be a good idea to call a criminal defense attorney today. Most of us offer free consultations. Best of luck
