Ok will that be in Frankfort or Lexington? Because the lawyer he had extorted him and us really bad. My dad worked in a coal mines for 33 years he has little education. I don't know the status of the appeal I do know that I paid out of pocket myself to file the appeal and I just recently paid another 500.00 for a 500 page report to be filed on his behalf.
Thank you so much, I sure hope they can help I am at the end of my rope.
You can call that number, and they will put you in touch with the closest office.
Thank you so much.
You are welcome, please remember to provide positive feedback
I hope that you are the one that I can talk to, to help get me through this I don't know what on earth is going on. My next question is this? Because that his lawyer dropped him does that mean that the appeals court will not listen to his case?
No, the appeals court can still hear the case. Just because the lawyer is not there does not mean you cannot bring an appeal
thank you and I will talk to you more later about it I am sure I will have more questions one more and I will let you go, if he don't have one will they appoint him one
