Thank you for your reply, P.what type of lawyer do i need
You need a criminal
or a family law
attorney. May I recommend the NY Bar referral program - here
. The attorneys are vetted and qualified. You should be able to find an attorney you are confident with and whom you can trust, and who is available ASAP.But I unsure what I should write in the request.
You should let the attorney handle this matter for you. At this point, it is very important to handle the matter properly, since this may have lasting repercussions. Ergo, I would not attempt to write the request and would have one's attorney do so.
Before retaining counsel, it is best to speak with at least 3-4 to find one that you feel best about. It is recommended to ask questions, such as the following, before making a decision:
-Have you had this type of matter before?
-What is your fee? Can you give me this in writing? Will you take a payment plan?
-What is your course of action here?
-How long do you believe that this will take?
-What are the strengths of my case? Weaknesses that have to be addressed?
