Q. Can I retain an attorney while I'm on the run from a charge? Or will they make me turn myself in.
January 10, 2020
A: Yes, you can retain an attorney even if you are a fugitive. Your attorney can then give you advice
on how to best resolve your situation. That most likely will include surrendering at some point.
However your attorney cannot compel you to do anything you don't wish to do nor can he or she actively
participate in any action that would encourage you to remain a fugitive. Hire an experienced criminal defense
attorney and he or she should have the knowledge and experience necessary to best counsel you
in this situation.
Q. what happens if i couldn't get a lawyer in time for court
July 8, 2019
A: Don't panic. If the Court determines you are indigent and cannot afford to hire
counsel an attorney will be appointed. If you are not indigent or you
prefer to hire private counsel most likely the judge will give you a
reasonable amount of time to hire one. Be prepared to tell the judge
what your current financial situation is and if you wish to hire counsel
tell the Judge you have an attorney in mind and how much time you will need to retain
him or her.
Q. I am 16 and was caught stealing gifts cards at walmart, so they fired me and said they would file a police report
June 19, 2019
A: Due to your age you should be charged as a juvenile although they have the ability to
charge you as an adult. If you are charged as a juvenile I don't see any realistic way
your parents will not be involved. Where in Tennessee did this happen?
