Wisconsin Felony- Grounds for ineffective assistance of

Wisconsin Felony-Grounds for ineffective assistance of counsel? If so should I fire before sentencing or take up on appeal?Attorney failed to file a motion to compel discovery(he says he verbally requested it and typed letter), and while awaiting response for further discovery, judge refused to adjourn after Da rejects he received any type of request. Forcing us to go to trial. neither side prepared and entered plea agreement.Discovery was needed to answer pertinent questions and protect due process interests during appeal. Also answers were needed to properly draft motion to suppress.Before plea, motion to suppress was submitted. Judge refused to hear motion or set a date for hearing. Plea reached afterwards. Currently awaiting sentencing.1) Failed to file motion to compel2) Failed to file motion to suppress in a timely manner(per judge)3) Motion filed was incomplete, typos and had fill in blanks that were blank. rough draft(charged $3500 for drafting of motion too!)4) Failed to notify me of new offer from DA til eve of trial, offer was 60 days old.Im afraid to even have this attorney stand next to me at sentencing, Judge was clearly irritated by the amateur hour it seemed.

Originally a Phoenix Municipal Criminal misdemeanor, I was

Originally a Phoenix Municipal Criminal misdemeanor, I was convicted at trial. Sent case to Superior Court of Arizona. Appeal was affirmed. Now I would like to raise an Ineffective Assistance of Counsel to get post-conviction relief. Is this motion for post-conviction relief still done in Phoenix Municipal ? It just seems very unlikely I would be granted relief on this basis and the same court which convicted me.

I answered an ad on craigslist. After getting a reply, we started texting. It turned sexual. Then he told me he was 17 (legal in Ohio, where Im from and not in Florida, where I was visiting). Once I realized it was illegal in Florida I told him so and that there would be no sex involved. Am I in trouble here?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: After we agreed to meet to just hang at the pool, he supposedly has a car wreck and now his Dad is trying to "resolve" the situation by having me pay for the car damage. I'm smelling a rat here.

Mar********: Here is my last question on the 'work'

Mar********: Here is my last question on the 'work' scenario. Every time I tried to get the parents to reign in their daughter's efforts to make my job harder (coming and going at all times of the day while she was supposed to be my relief at the front desk... for instance), they would say, "that's why we pay her under the table." My question is whether it's illegal to pay your kid for working at your business, but keeping her out of the 'system.' I don't see how they could have put her in any of the payroll tax systems (workman's comp, SocSec, etc.) without enabling her to be taxed, so I'm guessing giving your kid 'an allowance' for working for you isn't illegal. Thanks.
