Q: 

What is a district Attorney?

A:  A district attorney (DA) is an appointed or elected official who is responsible for prosecuting people accused of crimes in a particular district. You may also hear terms like “commonwealth attorney,” “crown attorney,” or “state''s attorney” to refer to people in similar positions around the world. The responsibilities of a district attorney are myriad and quite complex, and he or she is usually supported by a large staff which includes other qualified attorneys, researchers, legal assistants, and so forth. In many areas, a district attorney also decides whether or not a case will go to trial. For example, law enforcement may present a

Q: 

I have an order of protection against my estranged husband that protects my children and I and makes me sole parental guardian while terminating his rights completely. I obtained it while he was in jail for violating a temporary order several times.I moved out of state shortly after but took our two children to see their father before we left. His sister contacted me and asked me for my address to give to him. She told me that a district Attorney told her to obtain my address for my husband. I refused and later received and email stating that their was a child abduction charge filed against me. My husbands sister said that since I visited him in jail my order was rendered void. I know that even if I contact him the order still stands and seeking my address through a second party is violating orders. Does anyone know what I can legally do at this point? I just don''t believe that a district Attorney would ask someone to get my address for a restrained person or void an existing order based on the fact that I visited him in jail. I''ve researched the laws in California and either talking to a district Attorney was completely made up or the DA clearly doesn''t know the law. Either way the child abduction charge is real.

A:  I think you sister-in-law is pulling your leg. First, visiting the father in jail was not a good idea, but would not effect the order for protection. Second, criminal defendants are not notified via email. If you really think you have been charged contact the district attorney, preferrably through an attorney....

Q: 

If my career goal is to run for district attorney somewhere, what should i major in?

A:  Ummmmmm. You would need to go to law school and become a lawyer. Major in Criminal Justice then go to law School. You have to take the LSAT for that. Since your position will require you to prosecute alleged criminals, I would say: Criminal law. This is the area of law most people envision when thinking about lawyers because it is what television and movies most often focus on. People who are accused of crimes need lawyers to represent them, just as lawyers are needed by the government to prosecute them. lawyers even serve as judges and magistrates in such cases. Those...

Q: 

Do I Need an Attorney in Order to Sell my House?

A:  “Is it always best to have an attorney when you sell your house. I am selling my house back to the County I live in due to problems with the house. The County originally had the house built years ago. They are buying the house back for the exact amount I owe the bank and forgiving the grant I owe them. As you see I am not making any profit at all so I am trying to keep costs down. There are no realtors involved, I have to pay the usual seller fees. I would appreciate your advice.” Unfortunately, the answer is “it depends.” In some states it is customary for attorneys to be involved in most property transactions, and in others it is rarely done, though it is always an option. As an attorney,...

What is the highest? a lawyer a district attorney or an attorney?

Q: 

Where in my house, is the best place to store a weapon?

A:  i keep one under my pillow and the other one between my legs. Get a holster and wear it to bed with the gun in it. Also wear tennis shoes, kneepads and football helmet in case you have to run, slide or smash your head into a wall. Better wear a fireproof uniform in case of fire and may as well add a parachute in case you have to jump from the window. The funny thing is that all of these events are more likely to happen than needing to fire a gun at night in your bed! call cops .. they will safeguard it for you & you too specailly if you don''t have license.. Inside your room and in the safety vault, if you will leave your house. Otherwise, if you are there, better keep it in a place where you can easily access to it when the need arouse (ie. side bed/under...
