I am charged with PC 166(a)(4), violation of a custody/visitation order.However, it was an ex parte order that was never renewed or extended by the court. As a matter of fact, there was never a hearing date set.How do I get the charge dismissed considering this order was not valid at the time of the alleged offense ?

Is this perjury.... "Victim" and I use that term loosely,

Is this perjury...."Victim" and I use that term loosely, was asked how much he had to drink. His response was 3 beers in 3 hours. Turns out his BAC was .213, which for a 180b man is equivalent to 11 drinks in an hour, and he also had cocaine and weed in his system. It's material to the case because he eventually became aggressive towards me, eventually threw a punch, which i returned one and knocked him out. Under the influence of all that alcohol and drugs, his balance and overall control of himself has to be compromised. The judge thought that I would have had to throw an incredible punch to do all the damage, but i barely hit him, he fell and hit his head. My lawyer never went through the notes, or his medical records during the 4 month break we had during a bifurcated trial. I'm obviously appealing for ineffective counsel, but I fell this is a blatant case of perjury as well.

A person was given 2 year probation on Dec 2014 in one case

A person was given 2 year probation on Dec 2014 in one case which carried a 5 year sentence. They were also placed on 3 year probation from a case were sentencing was held on May 2015. That carried 18 months sentence. The person now has a new charge. The preliminary hearing has not been held yet. I have 2 Questions.1. If the preliminary hearing is set for after Dec 2014 will the person still be violated on the 1st probation that ends in Dec 2014. And only be violated on the 2nd probation which was 3 years?2. If the Actual trial date (not the preliminary) is held after Dec 2014 and he is found guilt will his first probation of 2 years still be violated since the original alleged crime happened prior to the end or probation date?

I am currently filing arbitration to obtain a retainer

I am currently filing for an arbitration to obtain a retainer refund. I am not the client but the person who paid for the representation. The attorney in question did not earn his retainer fee. He is unprofessional and unethical. He time he appeared he was either late or didn't show up at all. When he did appear in court he delayed putting off the court date for 1 year. He was paid up front through the preliminary hearing which he waived and the trial which he advised me 1 day prior to that he was out of the country. Can I get my money back even though the retainer states no refunds? Do I need a attorney to go through this mediation & arbitration? Is this something that protects the attorneys or is it a fair & honest arena?

I have a little situation, a couple weeks ago my girlfriend

Hello,I have a little situation, a couple weeks ago my girlfriend and myself got Into an argument at my house and unfortunately it ended up getting physical. I got hit in the nose by some part of her body and it broke my nose. The neighbors called the cops and I felt the police peer pressured me to press charges. I went Into the police station the next day and told them I do not want any charges against her and I would like them dropped. We are still together, and we both want a future together and this just happened to be a one time incident that happened while we both had some drinks. How can I get these charges dropped for her? I told the officer I do not what anything bad to happen to her and I would like them dropped but he said it's out of my hands. Is there a way I can go to the magistrate or call the DA to say this was a one time incident and I would like all the charges dropped? I live in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.Thank you
