Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
I think you have an uphill battle to convince the police to bring charges. You can certainly try...but it is important to understand law enforcement has discretion. That means that they are not required to investigate or prosecute any particular complaint of misconduct. So you can report this to law enforcement…but if they refuse to investigate/prosecute? There is no way to force them to do so.And what you are describing...I highly doubt that the police bring charges... Frankly what you are describing is not likely a crime...but you can make the request.As for complaining regarding the child's representative?That is something you can do...if their attorney is not properly representing the child that would be a basis to file a complaint.Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
You can NOT be sanctioned for reporting a crime...it is the role of the police to determine if there was a crime and if there is evidence that supports protection (again, I think that is a stretch based on what you are describing). And, frankly, if you report and the police do not take the case there is no reason for the judge or anyone else to learn of it.As for the child's attorney? If there is evidence that they are not doing their job, that would be a basis to report.If you can "bite your tongue and win her over"? Well...that is not a bad idea if you can pull it off. But if there is evidence she is not representing the child that would be a basis to complain to the barBut the complaint...in and of itself is not legally significant...the issue will be is there evidence to support the lawyer is not doing their job properly.
But honestly what you are describing does not sound like there is clear evidence that the attorney is not doing their job...it sounds like they have an opinion on you...but that is not a violation of their role or duties. It would be a violation if they are taking steps that harms the child
The attorney is charged with representing the child. If they are taking steps to harm the child? That is an issue. But, frankly, that can be tough to prove.You may be better off waiting for your new lawyer to file a motion with the judge to have the childs attorney removed...they (your attorney) will be able to craft the motion to the judge an (hopefully) provide evidence to support the request
You can always look outside your city for counsel...so long as they are licensed in the state they can appear in the case
Well...you have to make a cost benefit decision. But there are options available...
That is a separate issue. To sue the doctor you have to prove how they harmed you (like, for example, harmed your child through malpractice). If you have evidence of that you can file the suitBut you can not sue simply for giving a vaccine...you have to prove how they harmed the child.
If you want to sue for negligence you have to prove how you were harmed...so you have to prove your daughter or you were harmed...if you have such evidence you can file suit.
I say that unless you have evidence the video is used for illegal reasons the fact they are taping is not legally significant.You may find it odd...but it is not a crime to videotape inside your own home.
