Do I have any case obstruction ticket I received after nine

Do I have any case for a obstruction ticket I received after nine Troy police officers charged into my condo due to my soon to be ex wife called 911? The police officer that barged in as I was sitting on my couch was the same officer who came down in my basement two days prior when my wife called 911 and told them I was treating to do body harm to myself. As officer #104 entered my condo I stood up from the couch and turned towards all nine officers and #104 said get on your face....he already had his taser out. I had know idea why they were even there...so I thought we could talk. #104 spun me around and shoved his tazer into my back...I fell onto my couch and he kept tazing me. I guessing 10 seconds. I had to push the tazer off of my back because it didn't hurt me so he was just going to keep it on me until I started feeling it...#104 then hand cuffed me and stood me up and said we were just here to talk...but now your going to jail...

I'm a small business owner defending myself against

I'm a small business owner defending myself against pregnancy discrimination from ex-employee that was fired on same day she declined to train 5 new employees where she was scheduled, decided to show up at a different location to work and caused major chaos on stated training day. I also have witnesses to testify to plaintiffs bizarre behavior for being fired. My problem is that I'm starting to feel very stuck in legal fees and feel that my attorney is milking me; rather than ending case. I understand there is a legal process, as gone through depositions now, discoveries, motions; etc...as I continue to pay ten of thousands on legal fees now for latest motion to compel, next motion to summary judgement...the opposing counsel has done literally nothing. They have not produced anything, won't return my lawyers calls/emails (other than VERY limited), their witnesses both have not appeared for depositions (and now we're doing subpoenas)...and now the opposing lawyer is dropping out of case and turning over to a junior associate at his same firm. I'm going crazy here; as I realized when opposing attorney just stepped back and my lawyer still playing nice with other side...my lawyer doesn't have my best interest. What would happen if I fired my attorney and told opposing counsel; I'll just show up at court to jury trial? I'm falsely being sued...and I can't afford to just keep paying out legal fees to defend the process of law. Only person winning is my lawyer; by collecting payments from me

I had a traffic accident where I was t by a yellow cab that

I had a traffic accident where I was hit by a yellow cab that was not insured. I contracted with a lawyer, Nicole Pacella, with whom I went to deposition and several months. One day I called her office to update her and was told she had RETIRED. They aid they had assigned Anthony Chiarello to my case. I got his email address and proceeded to introduce myself to him. He answered my email wondering why I wanted to argue with him. I thought I was communicating.The next email I received from him was to "remind" me of the mediation we were scheduled for "tomorrow". I had no information re it.He drove me to the mediation at the office of Mr. Shapiro in Sunrise. During the drive he told me he did not know why we were doing this but I should keep my mouth shut and he would probably learn something from the meeting because he usually did. I pointed out that you cannot go to court in this County unless you first go to mediation.He told me that maybe I should find another attorney. Then he immediately backed out of that. I called the lead attorney to ask for help and received notice that they were taking me to court to withdraw from my case!Now I am having trouble finding an attorney. This is an uninsured motorist case for which I have two policies. It happened 10-21-11 and I have been under the care of several doctors during the entire time with the same complaints. Pacella had planned a jury trial. I probably have $15,000. in outstanding doctor bills. The first neurologist told me not to go to work ( I would heal faster). He wrote it on a Rx. As a result I have lost my business of 39 years.

My disabled girlfriend was arrested at Walmart. She suffers

My disabled girlfriend was arrested at Walmart for shoplifting. She suffers many things including PTSD. She had an issue at self scan and could not figure out the issue. Twice, the attendant came and cleared the unit with the store ID. On her way out, she was stopped for two packages of sauce mix, retail total $2.98, not paid for and arrested. She had no idea there was an issue as she thought what was the problem was resolved but the attendant. She has a public defender. Walmart wants 10 days in jail period. The public defender wants a bench trial. This judge put a lady in jail because her two tiny dogs weren't on a leash....just saying. She had no intent to steal anything as her food stamps had plenty of funds. A bench trial in front of this judge is suicide in my opinion. She needs a good legal opinion other than the PD or mine. I recommend that all the store training records, work instructions, surveillance video, depositions etc be requested with a jury trial. Mine is an educated but not legally educated opinion only. I am disabled also with MS and can't afford to get an attorney for her. Help please.

1. On Sept. 23 2015 I suffered a massive Bipolar Manic

1. On Sept. 23 2015 I suffered a massive Bipolar Manic Episode.I was totally out of control for 3 months until mid December when I was arrested for Domestic Violence. I spent 30 days in Jail (over Christmas), 3 Years Probation and 1 Year Domestic Violence classes for something I do not remember.I also lost my Job, Home and Family. My family still cares about me and we get together at least once a week. They do not blame me for having a MEDICAL DISORDER. My poor wife and children were severely traumatized by all the terrible things I did that I do not remember. My Episode was more like a Split Personality Disorder.I tried to hire a lawyer to claim that I had a Mental Problem and wasn't liable for my actions.But I was told that I had already pleaded Guilty and there was nothing he could do.I am normally a very nice person but during the Episode I am told that I was a raving lunatic. I don't remember any of the terrible things I did.2. That was bad enough. In early May, I went to court for my Probation Review and was ARRESTED AGAIN. The first 2 days in Jail I did not know what I was arrested for. Then I learned that I had 5 COUNTS OF BATTERY from Oct. 5th 2015. That was at least 2 months BEFORE I was arrested for DV a week before Christmas.The court had made a mistake and charged me with a PROBATION VIOLATION.I spent 9 days in Jail, Paid $2,000 in Bail and $7.500 for a Lawyer else I would still be in Jail!Again: I DO NOT EVEN REMEMBER BEING IN THE HOSPITAL AT ALL!Please advise me if I have any rights for compensation for either of these violations.______________________________3. Also: Back in 2006 I had my first Bipolar Manic Episode.The police entered my apartment and found my closet full of marijuana plants that were for MY OWN USE. I did not have the Medical Card at the time but I was eligible because I was having severe stress because I knew all about 9/11, the so-Called "Federal Reserve owned by the Rothschilds (Illuminati - Satanists).I had received a Medical Card before the trial.Instead of having 6 large plants, I had 50 very tiny clones that were mature and would not grow much bigger than about 12". I was very stressed and needed the medication as soon as possible. The total yield would have been less than 2 ounces max.I was FALSELY accused of "expanding my operation." Which was a TOTAL LIE!Since I knew about Ed Rosenthal's trial I dare not say anything in my defense.I had to "bend over" and take what they dished out!When I asked my lawyer about my God-Given rights, my lawyer dared not answer. He could only laugh. I know why! But I dare not say that I knew I had NO RIGHTS.When I asked for a Jury Trial, I was told that I would surly get 3 years in Jail (as the DA wanted to punish me for growing my own personal use Medical Marijuana.____________________I have been abused by the system 3 times in 10 years and suffered from condemnation by the courts for several years. (being on probation)I lost over $20,000 in fines and Lawyer fees.($12,000 in 2006 and $9,500 in 2016)Please advise...Thanks,Stanley **********************************

Suing without a lawyer... What do I have to look forward to?

Suing without a lawyer... What do I have to look forward to? After one year of being with an attorney I'm now on my own. I ran out of money. We just filed the petition last week and I'm getting ready to serve it but my lawyer can't help me any more. In fact, I'm left to reading books about what I need to do. I'm suing a group of men for breach of fiduciary duty and defamation (among others), and the defendants lawyer is about to contact me for the first time since my lawyer has been off the case. I need to know how the process works... Anything you can tell me would be greatly appreciated. It's going to be pretty strange questioning the defendants on the stand, how do people in my situation do that?
