I pull large oversized loads all over but mainly tx, ok and nm. Was wondering if I could mount a siren at the rear of the load to be triggered in a emergency situation which for an oversized load of my size could be something like someone changing a tire on the side of the shoulder and I need over immediately so as to not hit them with the load. Blinkers and strobes don't work to try to move to another lane in fact they kind of shadow the same effects as so treat a yellow light at an intersection and they speed up to get through it only in my case it's the matter of haveing a major accident at times.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: As I mentioned earlier Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico. IJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: No, im asking if it is legal so I do not end up in court.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I had an accident were I rear ended someone because they rear ended the car in front of them, but the guy in front left the seen after seeing if we were ok. I was stressed and didn't mention it to cops because I was in pain and stressed and didn't think it mattered at the time. The guy in front didn't tell the cops either. Should I amend report? I have neck herniations now from this. Is there any way I can have a personal injury claim in this scenario? I'm actuality, the guy I hit from behind hit the guy in front of him first. Now I have a injury and it looks like it was my fault.

JD, I have switched my focus to the professional rules of

For Paul JD, Paul I have switched my focus to the professional rules of conduct and understanding them. Where I am having trouble is with when an appointed attorney to an indigent defendant seeks to withdraw from representation. The attorney files his Motion to withdraw and at the next hearing the court addresses this motion. As well there is a Motion for new trial to also be addressed. At the hearing the court first addresses the withdraw and grants the withdraw. Then the Court after granting the withdraw excusses the attorney which leaves the courtroom. Then the court proceeds to address the Motion for new trial while unrepresented. I know it is ineffective assistance for the attorney to leave the defendant unrepresented in the middle of a hearing. Under which rule of professional conduct would this be? My problem is it seems by reading other rules on this it states a lawyer may cease representation of a defendant by directions of the court. And the court told the attorney he was free to leave the court room. So it is almost justified him doing so which seems to void the ineffective assistance due to the court instructed him to leave. This confuses me. Can you expand on this?

To A law Educator. This is just for second opinion in case

To A law Educator.This is just for second opinion in case if l have any option to solve the problem.The process l went through since 2011 to accomplish something is voided because of a new policy just has passed now. and l should be grandfather from this new policy.I was Registered Nurse abroad and l came to the USA in 2011. To become a nurse in the USA, l have sent my Application for Licensureby Examination to the Board of Registered nurse Sacramento California in 2011. At that time l asked the RN Board if my Nursing education documents need to be Evaluated by Commission on Graduate of Nursing School or not even if l know it is not required in California. The Board told me it is not required for California but another states. Then,The Board of Registered Nurse has evaluated my RN education document themselves and sent me a letter saying my Registered Nurse education is not enough for Registered Nurse here in California but it should be enough for Licensed Vocational Nurse here in California. The RN board advised me to apply for LVN. The RN Board forwarded my document to Board of Vocational Nursing(LVN) per my request. Then the LVN Board did their own evaluation and sent me a letter saying that l have some deficiency to fulfill. At that time I asked the Board of LVN if l have to have my RN education document to be evaluated by Commission on Graduate of Foreign Nursing School (CGFNS) or not even if l knew it is not a requirement. l got the same answer which is that it is not required for California but another state. Then, to satisfy the deficiency the LVN Board advised me to bring Nurse assistant certificate to get 5 months credit and 11.6 months hospitals including convalescent hospital work experience as a nurse assistant to qualify to take the Board Exam for LVN.l went to Nursing assistant school and got my CNA certificate and l submitted to the board and the board gave me 5 month credit. Then applied in the convalescent Hospital as a nurse assistant and l was hired. l worked for one year per the board request then l submitted my one year work experience to the board but all the sudden l received a letter saying l need to give my Registered Nurse education document to CGFNS to be evaluated because of new policy that has passed few month ago. which means l have to start all over again because of the new police put in place by the board a few months ago. all my effort since 2011 is voided. It is totally unfair for me and my case should be reconsidered and exempt from this new policy.So what is my option here?. The board denied my grievance letter already. it is not my fault. l should be grandfather from this new policy. Can l hire attorney to fight it.07 December 2016 07:41
