I need an ACLU lawyer, in the western district of Texas. I have an excellent case against our local sheriff's department and I'm coming up quick on the 2 year for filing...both my corporate att and divorce att have told me to get this filed, quick...
State/Country relating to Question: Texas
Ive called about a dozen att in my area. None of them want to go to federal court, (or can) and they know a federal case had better be a good one...and it is. I just deposed the former deputy involved in my case, yesterday and he just flat out admitted to some very "sexy" stuff.
Thank you for the post, you have reached Just Answer, not the ACLU. Do you have a legal question I can answer for you?
Ya, I'll ask this.. what's tthe chances of me finding an ACLU lawyer who will sue a sherrif's department for, oh, what's the legal term.. Locking someone up in jail under false pretenses, so a deputy could try to "score" with my wife.. and calling the JP, and setting my bond at $50k...so, I couldn't get out of jail...and setting a mandated 4 days before my release.. Not sure what you'd call that.(Not being a smart ass either, just trying to figure out how to present this to an attonery so he'll listen to my case..)
Hello, the nature of the claim would be false imprisonment. Assuming you have evidence of the frivolousness of the charges giving rise to the imprisonment you have a good chance of securing ACLU counsel.
If I may? What's the best way to secure an ACLU lawyer? I tried their website, about a year ago.. I'm sure they get a thousand emails a day, so mine didn't stick out.. and suggestions? The BAR? would they "track" lawyers assocaited with the ACLU?
You would need to call the ACLU rather than send an email. Also, you should consider sending a letter via certified mail requesting assistance attaching copies of any supporting documentation you have.
Negotiate, Draft, and Review many complex commercial agreements each year.
