I just needed to ask if what happened is something that could be pursued legally. My daughter had a baby about a week ago. For about a week before the baby was born, she was having horrible muscle spasms, that she went to the hospital for. She went 2 nights in a row. The hospital prescribed her a muscle relaxant and a pain med. She took them as directed until the day before the baby was born, so it was only like 2 or 3 days. They said this med combo was safe for her and the baby. She had a healthy baby girl, but they reported her to DCF, saying that her baby was born with opiates, and another drug in her system. They didn't say that they are the ones they prescribed to her. So, now she has dcf showing up at her house, treated her like a junky, and inspecting her baby to "make sure she's okay". My daughter showed then the prescriptions she had been given by the hospital, and they said they were extremely dangerous for a pregnant woman to take. My daughter is an amazing mother and so very contentious. We feel the hospital was wrong to give her dangerous drugs, and for then reporting her for being a drug abuser. This is something that could follow her the rest of her life. In a nutshell, that is our issue. What are your thoughts on this? Thank youJA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We are in Topeka Kansas, and St. Francis is the hospital that reported this to Dept of Children and Family Services.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No that's probably a good start.

I had a client in 2014. He is stating that we had a sexual relationship and sessions were social, instead of therapy. He is stating No treatment plan was ever done. Therapy sessions were sessions and I have notes and a treatment plan which I do on the first and second meeting. At this time I was also the manager of the homeless shelter and in which he lived. He got kick out of the shelter for his behavior, moved downstate where he tried to kill himself . Now I have a letter of intent on being sued for having a sexual relationship. There is no proof that sexual intercourse happened because it didn't. I'm not even sure how a lawyer would pick up the case. They also say I texted and called with "sexual ineundos" I do text clients when they have a question or an when an appointment needs to be changed and I did talk to him on the phone several times because he was suicidal and had explosive moods at times with people. He would call or text when he had emotions he couldn't deal with, usually anger with other people or depression. Other than that I am unaware of any other contact. I did talk to his mother for treatment planning on a regular basis. He had signed a release of information: My question is what to do next. I have a letter of intent to sue for things that aren't true. What's my responsibility. I feel he is angry with me and trying to take advantage and manipulate. He is homeless and his mother, I assume is pursuing this, he is a drug abuser and has attempted sucicide several times in the past. I believe they are saying that this relationship was harmful to his health.

Is this a private conversation? I have a one-time underage

Hi, is this a private conversation?JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I have a one-time underage drinking record on school's Student Judicial Affairs and Department of Public Safety (DPS)'s system. It happened in dorm on campus. My friend called the DPS because they felt I was blackout, and then I was sent to hospital. Later I was required to wrote an reflective paper and retook and alcohol education course, and my case was closed. As I contacted my school's Judicial Affair, they told me my record of "intoxication minor transported to hospital" would be expunged in February 2017 (and they will report no record if anyone ask for disciplinary checks), but my record of "overdose alcohol" on DPS will last forever. Since I am applying for jobs and law school this fall, will this appear on my background check? Should I disclose this to the companies and law schools that I apply? Also, will this affect my future bar examination? This case was 6 years ago.JA: OK got it.
