5 Questions Answered

Q. Need pro bono lawyer to represent us in Lincoln, Maine for return of stolen property to get our camp & lease back
A: That issue is out of my usual areas of practice. It also sounds like something that would require extensive research and litigation. I don’t think I can take on a case like that pro bono.
Q. Are there any instances where the police wouldn't need a warrant to search a house?
A: That's a complicated question, and the answer often depends on application of various constitutional doctrines. Usually a warrant is required, but exceptions abound.
Q. If I suspect animal abuse or neglect on a neighbors property how much trouble could I get in for trespassing for proof?
A: This sounds hypothetically as if it would constitute trespass, a misdemeanor-level offense. However, I'm not certain that under these circumstances you would be charged. Another concern would be a property owner who thinks a trespasser is there to cause harm and accordingly shooting said trespasser.
