Legal Answers
Q. I was charged with an F5drug possession, before indictment came back I did a year rehab, completed it, got a job, car
A: You Could. The Judge may not like you representing yourself pro se. I think it is risky considering all your WONDERFUL accomplishments. What happens if you make a mistake because you don't know the law, and that causes you to suffer a setback? Plus, I want you to consider the following, which is a saying amongst attorneys: "A person who is his own lawyer has a fool for a client". Best wishes on your choice. Pat DiChiro
Q. Custody battle turned nasty. Can I get help for this situation?
A: It seems threatening. But that it to be determined by police or prosecutor. Due to the serious nature of this communication, I would report it to the police. Even if they decide not to pursue it, you will have something on file. Plus, I would print/document/copy the threats. You may be able to use them down the road to get a Civil Protection Order. Best wishes, Patrick DiChiro
Q. Must all plaintiffs , who file a case in commom pleas courts in ohio , have standing ..??
A: If this is a criminal case, and the crime occurred within the State of Ohio, then venue is appropriate. The fact that there is no injured party does not make a lack of standing. For example, traffic tickets, speeding and the like, there is no injured party. But, there is a violation of the law. Best wishes. I hoped the foregoing helped. Pat DiChiro
