I got a call from an old air force buddy saying a warrant

I got a call from an old air force buddy saying a warrant has been issued for my arrest for non payment of a loan they gave me 18 years ago. I dont remember them loaning me money at all. We shared an apartment, and he paid his share of the rent via check, so Im thinking he is using an old rent check as "proof" of a loan? Bottom line, IF there was such a loan 18 years ago, would an arrest warrant be issued?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when was the warrant issued?Customer: He said it was Fairfax Virginia. I havent lived there since 1986. He didnt say when the warrant was issuedJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: not that I can think of

My Medical Mal case was lost in the seattle superior court.

My Medical Mal case was lost in the seattle superior court. I feel that my mother, who was the injured person..delay of stroke 5 hours, in a stroke certified hospital was wronged. At the end, the ER Doctor, admitted that because my mother had group health insurance, he could not treat her stroke and it is the policy between Overlake Hospital and Group Health that the group health patients must be seen by Group Health Doctors. So, my mother had to wait 40 minutes before the group health neurologist showed up. It was delay, and she missed her window to be treated with IV tpa which is the only FDA approved treatment for a stroke (3-4 hour window).JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: Washington State. Can we appeal our case?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Could my mom's case be civil right because she was descriminated with her insurance?

Gerald, I have a student Loan from 2002 that seems it was

Good Afternoon Gerald,I have a student Loan from 2002 that seems it was consolidated to FFEL which shows on nsld site. This loan was default since 2006 i believed it was a Sallie Mae and has impacted my credit until last year which it was taken off. I have successfully rebuild my credit and last week I got a letter from Wyndham Professionals collection agency saying they would garnish or come after me. I figured since it was off my credit that it was charged off and gone is there a statue of limitations to collect and effect my credit again? I haven't contacted or spoken with any one. after research i was thinking to send them a time barreled letter

My daughter received a non-traffic citation/summons in the

my daughter received a non-traffic citation/summons in the mail one month after being pulled over on I-80 in PA. She was speeding but the trooper did not charge her for that. Instead he issued a citation for code title 1'8 section 5503 sub sec A-4. He asked for her phone number and attempted to call her twice. My daughter pleaded not-guilty and is due to appear in PA municipal court on 9/2. Two nights ago the trooper woke my daughter at 11:30pm when he called her mobile phone. He told her that unless she pleaded guilty he would up the charges. Is he legally allowed to do any of this?JA: Because laws vary from state to state, can you tell me where the company is registered?Customer: what company? Do you mean the attorney? He's in Mill Hall, Clinton County, PA.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes, we retained William T. Fleming of Fleming Law Offices, State College, PAJA: What advice did they give you?Customer: He initially said for my daughter to plead not-guilty, which we did. After my daughter received the threatening phone call we spoke with him and he is OK with the state trooper's actions. He stated that the trooper is allowed to do this.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Well, we did tell him that after being caught speeding on I-80 and was subsequently pulled over the trooper smelled marijuana odor in the car. He asked her if she had any illicit drugs. He said that if she surrendered what she was in possession of he wouldn't have to check her vehicle, so, she freely gave up what was in her purse--a small amount about the size of a quarter coin. She was not DUI of DWI and was not charged with that.
