  1. Does Beaumont ( Medium) have a legal aid program? My spouse attorney gave him the wrong date to report to the facility. Which caused the Marshals office to call and notify him if he did not report that day at a specific time he would have a warrant for his arrest, by the way this was a voice mail. Well, due to his attorney not practiing due diligence on his behalf and notifing him of the incorrect date my spouse was not able to close his checking account etc. Now, the automatic drafts that were set-up are being returned causing return fees. I need a durable power of attorney signed and I know legal aid can perform this function since there role is equal to an attorny. Oh, I forgot to mention the attorney has lied repeadily about visiting to get this form signed and refuses all phone calls from my spouse, myself and my mother-n-law.

  2. My question is why do you punish all inmates when a couple of people do wrong why not punish those that are doing the wrong because family would still like to talk to their loved ones and find out how they’re doing while at the whole facility I think it’s unfair for those that have no involvement in wrongdoing and their families suffer just as well as they do I would like to see that changed that’s just my opinion have a blessed day
