QUESTION & ANSWERS

A: Unlikely and in my opinion a huge waste of money on that appeal. paying an attorney a small fee to review the case is OK, but beware, appealing a case that old is likely not even legal from a court procedure standpoint since you are supposed to take appeals within a very short time after a plea.I do not think hiring an attorney is a good bet in this case on the facts you have given here.

A: I would do all things possible to obtain a good attorney. If you cannot afford a "big name" attorney, find a younger attorney who will work within your budget.

When you finally do meet up with the police, remember…

A: You can do that. your credit is of no importance. However, make sure you don't have any judgments or they MAY be able to collect against the mobile home

A: This depends upon several important facts and your buyers agreement. You should consult with a consumer law attorney immediately to protect your rights

A: You should consult with a Georgia Attorney familiar with Real Estate Law. It is never safe to assume anything when it comes to protecting yourself from lawsuits.

A: There is no minimum. Generally it is one half, but if circumstances allow you can ask the Judge for early termination sooner, likewise, the Judge can make you wait longer. The decision is entirely in the hands of the Judge. A good presentation at a hearing on your request is what will make the difference, assuming you have completed every single requirement of your probation except for time.

A: Depending upon the number of counts, and your criminal conviction history, if any, the maximum could be life. The statute calls for a three year minimum mandatory prison term but this is not enforced in all cases nor is it necessarily the minimum. Many of these cases cannot be proven and thus a resolution could call for a non-mandatory minimum sentence or other resolution. I agree with my collegues who have answered that you need an attorney to explore and even create options for you.

A: Obtain a lawyer to write a demand letter pursuant to the contract, then file suit if the demand isn't met. the lawyer will need to review the contract to determine the specifics.

A: Arkansas is the venue. Get an attorney in that area. The driver is almost always responsible for defects in the paperwork for a commercial vehicle. If the registrations are expired then the driver should not take the vehicle on the road and the driver is generally assumed and required to know these things.However, an attorney may be able to get the ticket reduced or dropped altogether. Is the registration now current? if it is this will help greatly in getting the ticket disposed of…

A: Since you are already divorced it appears that the venue would still lie in NY. I do not think a Florida Court would take jurisdiction

A: An HOA attorney would need to review the specific language of the docs. However, it is likely this would be allowed since the price is not high and internet was not invented in 1977 the BOD will have to make a decision based upon other areas in the docs. I would bet there is some ability for the BOD to make a decision like that "in the best intersts" of the Association.

A: You should review the lemon law. If the vehicle is defective then under the lemon law it is possible to make the manufacturer buy the car back from you. Aside from that there is little else.

However, there is a Florida Law that might allow you to make them pay you back and pay for your attorney fee.

A: You need to consult with an attorney right away. Your insurance should have paid you for value of the car after deducting the outstanding loan balance.the whole thing sounds crooked the way you have described it, and a live consult with an attorney that could review your documentation would clear up a great deal.

A: They can be the same thing depending upon the conduct of the fraudulent party. the key is whether you rely on the fraudulent representation – or omission – and make a decision you would not have made if you knew the truth. the misrepresentation or omission has to be something you relied on in making your decision. Also, it has to be a fraudulent as to a material issue – not a small issue.

Q: Car towed illegally
Answered 8 days ago.
A: I doubt this is worth suing over. the cost and time of suing is far greater than any recovery and you are never going to get a tow truck company to agree or to acknowledge their predatory practices.I would put this behind you if it was me…

A: Make sure you get photos of the damage and make sure you record the dates/times that it happened. this will be the proof you need to show that direct tv is responsible.

A: Definitely get an attorney to look over the declarations. But why don't you try asking the COA/board/manager first to see if they even have a real objection to this since it is your assigned parking spot. sometimes hiring an attorney escalates a situation.

A: It sounds like you have a claim..if you can prove damages. You should most definitely consult with an attorney regarding this, it could be a good case for you. I do not think they can just kick you out like that but your lease will control.

A: The landlord could ask you for the furniture back . If this happens you must give it back immediately. SInce you already took it, you may have a criminal law problem but that can be corrected if the items are returned … but it is never a good idea ton take things you did not pay for unless you ahve proof of a gift or abandonment.

Civilly you can sue the person you "bought" this car from for taking your money and misrepresenting the debt they already had on the car.Taking money from someone when you are not entitled to it is stealing.

A: Unfortunately the entire case will be an uphill battle. Since Law Enforcement has controlled all of the information, you will likely have to resort to Federal Court. it isn't what you know – it's what you can prove in court that matters.

A: Document your noise levels with a sound level meter and an audio video recording device. if they are within acceptable levels, consult with a local attorney regarding the police conduct and again, document everything.Also, use common sense – remember you may need to impress a judge, jury or both one day – and don't play music at a level that disturbs your neighbors after say 10pm or before 8 am.

A: Both of the other attorneys have great advice in their answers. Mine is very simple – disclosure is best. why would you want to get involved in an employment, living or other arrangement, get comfortable, build your life around it or partly around it, only to have your arrangement suddenly ended by lack of disclosure. Private citizens are not bound by expunction and sealing – if a private citizen finds out you had a felony case they can use that in making their decision as to how they want to…

A: Likely you are not liable but if you signed anything then it should be reviewed by a competent attorney to be sure. Some businesses have a nasty habit of vindictively filing a collection notice when you back out of a deal. the language of the reservation could have some effect on you. My colleagues have a point and likely no liability for a lease but I would want to know what the reservation says.

A: Once the executrix is given a letter of administration, by court order she becomes "legally" vested with all of the powers the deceased had before death. therefore, it appears that while the law may not specifically direct HOA's to honor a testatrix's vote, the testatrix is legally the same as the deceased and is legally given the authority to do so and to bring an action against the HOA if it does not allow the vote. the HOA cannot just shut the testatrix out since she takes the place of the…

A: It would depend upon whether you obtained a full restoration of rights. Most people who obtain rights restoration in Florida only obtain partial rights, which is simply an application & reveiw process. If you received a withhold of adjudication then you are not a convicted felon under Florida Law (for that case) , and if you receive a full restoration of rights after being adjudicated the you have been "unconvicted" and should be eligible to serve. A good test is to see if your firearms right…

A: It depends upon how the car is titled, and how the financing was done. if your husband took the car, and it is in his name or both names then he likely can do this legally. If the car title is in your name only, he cannot, and he would hav to give it back.

A: Unless you did a written contract, you are going to have a hard time obtaining a refund. If you took your case to small claims court, it would be your word against their word, and it would cost you money to file.
