Ask a Lawyer - General Practice Law questions answered by leading lawyers
Evidence - cross examine or Claim as my own.
I am building a Defense as a Pro Se litigant in a civil trial. In the complaint, the Plaintiff introduced a document which unbeknownst to them (but not me) has damaging evidence to their case. I believe when I point out specific details in this document, it would be enough to both exonerate me and result in judgment for my counterclaim. With that said, am I obligated to cite the same document as my own evidence when I produce my Answer and Counter, or can I be vague and claim to have a document containing details that contradict the Plaintiff's claims, and then bring it to light at the appearance hearing.
Details about evidence.
As a Defendant in NJ Civil Court, When introducing evidence in an ANSWER to a COMPLAINT, how detailed do you have to be. For example, if I had a document with a handwritten letter from a third party listing details of the case in question, but I actually intended to use the letter to prove something was authored by the same individual in a handwriting analysis, Could I simply present the letter to the Plaintiff's attorney and let them take it at face value to catch them off guard, or would I need to state my true intention for presenting it.
early retirement
I'm 35 years old. I worked for the state for over 12 years. I got sick and had to resign due to a medical  Condition and applied for retirement. I was denied initially and I appealed  their decision. I was granted a hearing for December 17. Unless  my neurologist testifies, the judge won't hear my case. Because she works for  Atlanticare she has to be subpoenaed. Every attorney I've found deals in social security matters. I'm stressed and don't know what to do.
who is responsible for cleaning the snow
Please let me know who is responsible for cleaning the snow ? Either owner or tenant( as per Law)?
Who can practise federal law?
I'm trying to get information for a friend who needs legal advice in the USA. I'm not American so the federal/state system is totally new to me - please assume I know nothing! If a lawyer is a member of good standing in the state of Florida law bar, are they also certified to practise federal law in the state of Florida? How can you tell if a lawyer is certified to practise federal law in Florida? Would they be called a member of good standing in the federal bar? Also is there any way to find out if a lawyer has ever been accused of malpractice?
