"This is my first time to seek for a lawyer's help since I came to the US in 2007. Our case is a domestic violence dismissal. Like many other 1st generation immigrant couples that lived together for many years, life is full of trifles, work pressure, depression, anxiety, any of them can anytime trigger a hot argument , or even a serious fight between you and your loved. Sometimes, these wars between couples can be get over by one side calming down, like leaving room staying one night at hotel, but sometimes no side wants to give up and the war is continually leveling up. Then, the stronger side ( usually the husband) will show his male power and the weaker sider (usually the wife) will get very shocked and hurt (no injure, in heart especially) and immediately want to seek for help, unfortunately no one could help her since there is no relatives and very few friends ( they may not want the friends know their fight story because after all their family look so harmony from outside). nnWhat can a wife do? Yes, call 911. Maybe the wife just simply wanted the police come to persuade her husband to calm down or act a role like a marriage counselor who can teach the man how to treat woman nice. 5 policeman with 5 police car came by, with electric baton in hand. You and your husband are separately inquired for10 minutes'. She may thought this will be a good lesson to her husband and hope the police can leave now, utill she suddenly realized that the kind police put on handcuffs on her husband and going to arrest him send to jail.nnAt this moment, she may regret and want to stay his husband, but everything is out of victim's control, the husband was taken away anyway. So what to do next? I mean, what does a wife do next? Since the husband have nothing to do in the jail, he have to enjoy his cold, wet, small cell with a wonderful free lunch (two slice of dry bread). The other morning I took one day from work, searched website for tips how to deal with situation, bailed my husband out with $10,000, and his arraignment will be 2 months later.nnAt this moment, I realized that the police/procurator are serious, they may sentence my husband to jail for years and there will be a non-erasable crime record on my husband's background check for employment. What is totally not I want. I need to fight back against police and let them drop the case! Since our 'enemy' now is procurator, which is too strong for us, we are eager to find a good attorney who can represent us to speak in the court(accurately, represent my husband, not me), we searched internet and called several law firms for a case evaluation. I have to say, after 2 or 3 ridiculous high quote by the legal assistant/lawyer, we are so lucky to came across VIB law firm and Miss Anniesa Jimenez picked up our call. She is very calm and professional, and set up free case evaluation appointment with attorney Rippolio, did not even ask if we have xxx money, like the other firms do. We decided to hire Mr.Rippolio as we walked into VIB offices, he is very experienced and very patient to listen to our concerns, confident but not aggressive at all. At the end, he told us this case are strong to win and he would like to represent us, and gave us a quote. The quote is very reasonable comparing to the other law firms ( we did not even have chance to see a lawyer, just quote on the phone, 3 ~ 4 times more than VIB's.), since we just paid 10000 bail, we do not have much cash at hand, I asked if he can give us a discount ( did not expect he agrees), to our surprise, he is very gentle and generous and gave us $750 off!nnAfter contract signed off, Mr.Rippolio help us win this case in 7 days! nUntil now, our nightmare is over. Highly recommend Mr.Rippolio and VIB!"

Let's Talk About: Initial Attorney Consultations
it recently dawned on me that most people have never hired an attorney before and do not know what to expect when going through that process. The attorney consultation is a preliminary conversation with you and an attorney so you can understand your legal rights, determine whether you have a case, and if the attorney will accept your case. Typically, attorneys, like myself, do not charge for the initial client consultation.
Let's Talk About: Pre-Nuptial Agreements
a pre-nuptial agreement is a legally binding contract between two people in contemplation of marriage that outlines how assets and liabilities are to be divided between them in the event the marriage ends in divorce. Since it is a contract, basic contract requirements must be present, including that the agreement must be in writing and both parties must sign the agreement. Under South Carolina law, a prenuptial agreement can be enforceable as long as certain other factors are met. They are included, but not limited to, the following: Was there any fraud, duress, misrepresentation, nondisclosure, or mistake in of material facts by one person or both people upon signing the pre-nuptial agreement? Is the agreement fairly balanced between both parties? Are the material facts present at the time of signing the same material facts at the time of the nuptials? The agreement can offer other terms of the marriage, including, but not limited to the following: What laws will be apply to the divorce and the prenuptial agreement during the divorce, if a divorce were to occur; How assets will be distributed in the event that one person dies during the marriage; and Sections that protect one person from assuming any pre-marital debts of the other person as a result of their marriage. Sections that describe the structure of any spousal support that may be paid, if any. As situations can arise in every marriage, having a pre-nuptial agreement allows both people to establish mutually-beneficial terms of a potential divorce before the wedding. They allow a couple to contemplate future issues and plan the best course of action for them, and allows decisions to be made while emotions are reserved and not made in the "heat of the moment." If you are contemplating getting married and would like to discuss a pre-nuptial agreement, or contemplating getting a divorce and have pre-nuptial agreement in place, please contact my office today for a free initial consultation to understand your rights under the agreement.
