With an appearance in April, you have a little time to deal with this. Let's talk on Monday. For now, DO NOT HIRE A LAWYER YET. Let me look into it in terms of what is out there. And you do the same. DO NOT CONTACT ANY LAWYER UNTIL WE TALK. And NO, you do not need to be in Barstow with the lawyer each time he deals with this. In fact, you may never have to appear one of the benefits of having a lawyer. Celebrities do this all the time, have lawyers do all the appearances, even in some drunk driving cases].scottrwilliams said:Thank you Thank you Thank you I feel much better already the most important piece of advise was to get an attorney from Barstow. I've been searching for them in Orange County wasnt really thinking I guess, that and I've never done this before. So should I be there (in barstow) any time my lawyer is? I'll make time if necessary, or prudent.
My counter-arguement would be that you don't have to lane split at 50 mph. There is lane splitting and there is hauling a$$ in a construction zone.sblea said:If this goes to court, I would rightly use the argument that you *HAVE TO* lane split.... Educate them on Vtwin motorcycles, HD and ducatis... Educate them that Vtwin motorcycles will get hot and overheat. Educate them that you cannot stay idle on the bike for very long without potentionally causing engine damage.... Tell them you had to move outside of the cones to continue movement until you found when the traffic opened up... Educate them that infact you are safer if bikes are not stuck in the middle of traffic. If you have taken the MSF course, educate them that motorcycles are *INSTRUCTED* to be going slighly faster than traffic, and under the circumstances this was the best alternative...
Where this Duc-MS member benefits is that I am willing to help him find the right lawyer. He is lucky, because you are right, it is a hassle to find a good attorney.Synergy said:Roto- This is just for general knowledge, you stated
"What he wants is the attorney who can "make a direct call" to the D.A., who will take his call so the two can work out a deal on the phone. He needs an attorney who can adjust his approach according to how negotiations develop.
When I was a D.A., I would take the calls of the attorneys whom I respected. And on those whom I had never heard of, I would take their calls and listen to what they had to say, as long as they remained courteous, respectful and did not treat me like some sort of idiot state worker/bureaucrat."
How can a competent lawyer be found that knows the DA, court, judges, etc and has a good reputation. I mean one could ask any lawyer that question and the lawyer could lie through his/her teeth just to get the case. Telling the client "oh yeah im good golfing buddies with the judge, etc...", when in fact the he doesnt even know the judge. Just curious how to go about finding a competent lawyer that can truly help your case.
