Rene Valladares (Federal Public Defender) and a group of panelists will discuss what the “Rule of Law” means in today’s multicultural society. In a growing number of cases in state and federal courts all across the country, parties are raising “the cultural defense” – invoking the customs and traditions of a diversity of cultural backgrounds to explain their actions. Even when these issues are not raised per se, culture plays a role in many cases – both civil and criminal.

Second Opinion Divorce Pro Bono?

I have a half filed case in the city. I stopped because I had a lawyer who did not secure my money while claiming he can do my case .The x lives in FL. He left me in 95 .He married someone without divorcing me. I was told we were divorced. Ignorant as I am I waited for a decree but when husband #2 came into the picture the notary who married us said it isn't important to prove I am divorced she took me on my word. I thought I was divorced. He since then ,husband # 1 has a child and divided his property between him and his fake second wife. I am told to walk away from this and start new because I wont get alimony
