During a late night run to Quality Dairy I was stopped by a State Trooper for "Improperly displayed registration", i.e.: tinted license plate cover. The normal documentation was asked for, which I provided along with my CPL and I informed the trooper that I had two firearms in the vehicle. As the trooper was back at his vehicle running my information, two Ingham County Sheriff Deputy vehicles pulled up blocking my vehicle in from the front. The trooper came back to my window with both sheriff deputies and informed me that my CPL was expired, because of a PPO, and that the PPO prohibited me from firearms. Which I acknowledged having the PPO but that it in fact did not prohibit me from buying, selling, purchasing, owning, or transporting firearms; that it was clearly signed by the judge not prohibiting me at a all. Regardless of what the certified PPO signed by a judge stated, the trooper arrested me and took me to jail. I was charged with 2x Carrying Concealed Firearms both with a term (5)years. While being retired law enforcement myself, I was confident that I had not broken the law, that I in fact had followed the law, and additionally that the agencies involved had made several mistakes along the way. Regardless of the situation, or your prior history if you are facing felony charges and are going before a judge, you need an attorney who is informed, educated, well versed in the courtroom, and professional, but also personable. When I first met Mr. Ron Berry he quickly filled all those requirements, he listened intently, asked the right questions, gave feedback, and asked me to assist when he needed me. Mr Berry assured me that I was in fact within my rights, that I was not guilty, and that he believed in me. We appeared in court and Mr. Berry went to work, within approx., (15)minutes the case was dismissed. While this felt like a victory it was short lived. Within a month a warrant was issued for my arrest for the same two charges. I turned my self in, bonded out, went back to court with Mr. Berry to resolve this once and for all. While the prosecuting attorney offered a plea bargain of lesser charges, that would have been a good deal for someone that was guilty, I chose to plead not guilty and go back before a judge. After returning to the courtroom, Mr Berry again went to work, presenting the truthfull factual events, the certified legal documentation, and my belief that he was the man to get this set right. Which is exactly what he did, my case was dismissed with prejudice and I was free of these charges once and for all. Mr. Ron Berry is truly a good man, that is doing exactly what he is meant to do; I am grateful to have met him, thankful for the services he provided; and additionally my family was blessed to have such a good person stand by our side and fight for us. Thank you Mr. Ron Berry, my family is truly grateful

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer fights on your behalf if you’ve been injured physically, psychologically, economically or in reputation. This injury may be the result of neglect or malicious intent of another person, or it could be at the hands of a business, government or other entity. Personal injury lawyers specialize in tort law, which is the law of civil wrongs like car accidents, company wrongdoing, unlawful imprisonment and more.

To become qualified to be a personal injury lawyer in the United States, a person must earn a bachelor’s degree, followed by a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree from a law school. Most states then require the person to pass the bar exam to become licensed to practice law. Unlike many attorneys who require a retainer, personal injury lawyers often work on contingency fees. This means that in lieu of payment upfront, they receive an agreed-upon percentage of the settlement in case of a win.

What should you look for in a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer will advocate for your legal rights if you’ve been hurt in an accident at work or in daily life, have suffered from medical malpractice, or are struggling to have your insurance carrier cover your needs. It may be helpful to talk with two or three lawyers before selecting one. When looking for a personal injury lawyer, research their reviews and make sure former clients have had good experiences with them. Next, make sure the personal injury lawyer has experience and proven success winning cases similar to yours. Confirm that the lawyer is licensed to provide services in your state. When you find a qualified personal injury lawyer with whom you want to work, freely discuss payment and fees before any work begins. Most lawyers offer a free consultation to learn what your case is about and explain their rates. Personal injury attorneys typically receive a percentage of your settlement (called a contingency fee), so they are paid after the trial or case is complete. Keep in mind that some attorneys have fees that you must pay even if you don’t win your trial. It’s important to understand these details before work begins so you don’t have any unhappy surprises later. Lastly, it’s wise to choose a personal injury lawyer that you have confidence in and with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.
