Biography

I provide legal services outside the courtroom for things like contracts, filings, legal documents, negotiations, and legal advice. For example, I can assist with business contracts, divorce filings, trademark applications, and trust documents, among other things.

While I often resolve legal disputes outside the courtroom, I do not provide legal services for adversarial litigation.

Legal Answers
Q. Is it worth it to pay a lawyer for a traffic ticket?
A: It depends. Usually folks hire a lawyer if either (a) it's a major ticket like a DUI or (b) it's a minor ticket that will effect their insurance or license, because of prior strikes. If it's your first ticket, it's a minor ticket, it falls under your insurer's forgiveness policy, and you don't anticipate getting more tickets, it might be easier to just pay it.
Q. can a 16 year old(girl) and 18 year old(guy) have sex and date?
A: Yes, they are allowed to date and have sex, so long as it is consensual, they do not have a teacher/student relationship, North Carolina law applies, etc. In North Carolina 16 is the age of consent. Even minors younger than 16 are allowed to have consensual sex within a certain age-range (I think it's 5 or 6 years age range).
Q. what would an attorney advise if you are considering a divorce and wanting to move out?
A: Generally, it is ideal (though not necessarily common) to sign a separation agreement before moving out. Abandonment, among other things, can be used as an accusation of marital misconduct. Legitimate claims of abandonment are rare, but the fear of abandonment claims is more common. To join in the speculation, his lawyer could have advised him to discuss a separation agreement first. Or, his lawyer could have advised him regarding abandonment, and he could have a concern (even if unwarranted) that leaving would give you that.
