I am licensed in State and Federal Court, and by the U.S. Supreme Court. I will see a person with a problem in any one of these areas, usually, on the same day as I am contacted. My fees are charged based on the seriousness of the problem, what needs to be done, and taking into account the person's ability to pay. My consultations are free, with no obligation, and will take as much time as necessary to determine the best path forward to a successful resolution.

Q. I owned property and had tickets in my real name. I was set up for another crime and they arrested me under my stage nam
A: I think you need to explore your situation with a lawyer that practices civil rights law. The criminal aspect of what happened is apparently concluded & I'm assuming you had a lawyer representing you to whom you posed these questions. Your overall question is somewhat confusing because you say they changed your name in prison, you were lost for 6 months, it would seem b/c of this, but then you say you were paroled before you ever got to prison. Are you on parole now, with all other charges dropped, or what is exactly your present situation? The situation you describe makes me think lawyer's & judge's committed misconduct, if you were actually innocent, and a writ of habeas corpus if you are on parole, but I don't have enough facts about the situation to further comment. There's a lot you're not mentioning, and you shouldn't on a public forum. But these other things would have to be known & explored to give a more informed answer. Best of Luck! ... Read More
Q. What is the punishment for a stolen firearm in texas first offense
A: Firearm theft in Texas is different than other theft classifications that are graduated by value of the item taken or if livestock, e.g., & states at the penalty level of a State Jail Felony. That range of punishment is 180 days to 2 years & up to a $10,000.00 fine. Community Supervision is available, either regular or deferred adjudication, depending on a person's criminal history. Consulting with a criminal defense attorney would provide the best assistance. Best of Luck!
Q. How can I get a transcript of court proceedings in 1991 in Bell County Tx.? Also a copy of conviction in it's entirety i
A: To obtain a transcript, contact the court reporter if the court in which the case was heard. That would be the starting point for the transcript. 31 years is a long time to retain a transcript, depending on the type of case & what happened in the case (appeals, etc.). A copy of the conviction, sounds like a request for the judgment & sentence or maybe the entire file of the Bell County District Clerk. A phone call to that office, if you have identifying information of the defendant, would be the starting point for what would be in the court's file. You can also make a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain whatever they have, if you have the identifying information. There might be a charge for the copying of either, certainly for the transcript, if avaliable. Best of luck! ... Read More
