Customer Question
My son was on...

My son was on a two year probation. He has religiously followed the meetings and random tests. Within a two week period he was stopped twice for swerving in Texas. The second stop they wanted to search his vehicle. He had his probation revoked and is in jail even though they did not arrest him, and charged him with DWI.

Lawyer's Assistant: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?

Texas. Happened about a month and a half ago for the pull overs

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No. Can't afford one

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My son is 43

Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. What is your question about this situation? Was anything found in the search of his vehicle? Was he charged with a new crime? What was the basis for his violation?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
