12 Questions Answered

Q. I must appeal my criminal case ASAP. Whats my very first step, pre-attorney?
A: You need to put in a notice of appeal as soon as possible. There is a very limited amount of time to do so. In addition to the notice of appeal, there are multiple other motions/orders you may need to file with the state including court reporter designations, motions for costs, etc. Appeals are very complicated, research intensive and time consuming. I seriously recommend you hire an appeal lawyer near you. Good luck
Q. I asked a question 2 days ago and have not received an answer. Do lawyers actually respond to questions?
A: Yes, we lawyers try to answer questions when we can. Sometimes we cannot if you are looking for legal advice and you have retained counsel. Other times we can’t answer a question if it is not clear. Try asking your question again and good luck!
Q. I got a letter in the mail 30 days ago to be A Habitual offender i hired a lawyer how many days doSe it take for a respo
A: The lawyer you hired will be in the best position to answer this question. Good luck
