What is it called When a person accused of a felony will be appointed an attorney and will enter a plea?
In this state you would go before the judge for an arraignment. You would consult with the judge concerning an attorney before you would be allowed to enter a plea. You would be not allowed to enter a guilty plea until you had either consulted with an attorney or waived your right to consult with an attorney. You would be informed that the state would appoint you an attorney if you can not afford one. (They do not inform you he will be just out of law school and not have any idea what he is doing.)

Reasons to Hire an Attorney for a Criminal Law Case?
For many people, getting arrested for a crime can be a very stressful and emotionally devastating process. To help prevent excessive punishment for the crime, or to prove that you are innocent, it would be a great idea to hire an attorney in any criminal law case. While a defense attorney is expensive, there are various reasons why you should spend the money and hire the attorney. The first reason why you should hire an attorney to defend you in a criminal law case would be to have the attorney help you understand and protect your rights after you are arrested. in the event you are arrested, the first thing you should do would be to call an attorney. The attorney will then meet with you and discuss the situation prior to any law enforcement agent will talk to you. This will prevent you from accidentally admitting to the crime. The attorney will also explain to you the arrest process, and what charges and potential punishment you are facing. The second reason why you should hire an attorney to defend you in a criminal law case would be to have the attorney help you negotiate a plea, or avoid going to court all together. If the defense attorney can prove that there is not enough compelling evidence to possibly convict you, then you could get out of the situation all together. If there is some compelling evidence, and you agree that you will have a difficult time winning the case, then the attorney could help you out by negotiating a plea bargain. This could mean getting probation, a fine as opposed to a prison sentence, or a reduced prison time. Due to the cost and resources that go along with bringing a case to court, both parties would typically prefer a plea bargain. The third reason why you should hire an attorney to defend you in a criminal law case would be to have the attorney defend you in court. The attorney will prepare a case in your favor, review evidence being presented by the prosecutor, and create a compelling argument as to why you are innocent. The attorney will also present his case, and deliberate with the prosecution and judge during the trial process.

How do you disbar a judge?
You'll need evidence of illegal activity by the judge and an attorney willing to take on your case. Write to your State supreme court. I do not think they would side with you though. They will not go against one of their own. I live in Ohio, so I would write to this "bunch" and they would send her, or him the letter that you wrote. The judge, or magistrate then would write back to tell why they did what they did.

Your friend hired a lawyer for a divorce She has since fired him How does she go about finding what paperwork was ever filed on her case?
If you cannot get your former attorney to release your case file to you, the easiest way is to hire another attorney. The new attorney can file a motion with the court to obtain an order forcing your previous attorney to release your file to your new attorney. I know because I went through the same process.

How do you disqualify attorney in divorce case attorney represtenting wife but represented me in the past?
You do not have the legal option to request the court to have the attorney disqualified from representing your wife in divorce proceedings. There is no law that prevents a person from retaining legal counsel of their choice. The fact that he once represented you previously is not relevant. ---------- Not true. If her attorney represented you in the past, it is unethical, at least in most staes I am aware of, for that attorney to represent someone against your interests. Once your attorney, he cannot go against you later. Imagine what he would know about you that you told him in confidence that he would have in his mind while he is representing your opponent now, like if you committed a crime and this information would benefit your new opponent. Move to have him disqualified. He should have not taken this case anyways.

Asked in Divorce and Marriage Law
Ex-husband hasn't kept in contact with our teenage daughter and now he wants visitation. She doesn't want to go back to his home. He says that he can force her to go. Can he do this?
This is probably answered by the custody portion of the divorce decree, and will be governed by the laws of the state where your daughter lives. I would suggest that this is important enough that you should contact your state bar association and find an attorney to answer this for you. Usually a referral to an attorney by the state bar association will give you a free or very low cost meeting with a licensed attorney.
