Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to find my son. He had a proceeding in Richmnd City Circuit and as best I can tell, he received suspended sentence on two charges and he paid restitution.

Lawyer's Assistant: What were you charged with exactly? Do you have any upcoming court dates?

My son

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

He was represented by Vaugh Jones but Jones will not reply

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

I am trying to locate my son. I talked to him briefly last Saturday.

Is he clear of Virginia Courts. Any money owed? Any requirements?
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 4 months ago
We cannot find your son. Have you tried an investigator or local counsel.Would you like a lookup directory which you can quickly use to find a local lawyer to handle your case?

I am a different expert. The clerk of the court where the case was held should be able to look at the computer and/or at the court papers and let you know if your son's case has been completely closed.

The only other people who would know, apart from your son himself, would be the prosecutor and the defense lawyer. Unfortunately, the lawyer has no obligation to you and has to keep his communications with his client confidential. He may get back to you as a courtesy if you keep trying, but he's not going to tell you of your son's whereabouts without authorization to do so from your son.

Ok. So I should call the clerks office.
Lawyer: Zoey, JD, Attorney replied 4 months ago

Yes. Call the court and ask to speak to a clerk.

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.
