Q: 

My car got totaled and I dont know what to do!!?

A:  What the do is the Kelly Blue Book value of your vehicle (pretty much the value of your vehicle now on the current open market) They do not give you a similar vehicle if you are making payments you would need to pay off the car to your loan company don''t make any moves until your insurance finishes the claim. Trust me the will walk to you through everything. I''m definitely glad to hear you are OK take care of yourself :) Th insurance company will pay you enough money so that you can buy a comparable vehicle.

Q: 

Is there anyone who supports hispanics and what they do for our country?

A:  i support hispanics who bust their assses off and get ripped off by some scum bags who take advantage of their situation. I got no problems with mexicans....I dont even have a problem with them sneaking over the border........BUT....learn English when you get here and dont expect any government handouts!!! Mexicans are just people like everyone else and are looking for a better life. I support all Americans and what they do for our country. My husband is hispanic. We are both first generation Americans. Neither of us support illegals of any race. this country would collapse if mexicans disapeared over night you would be out of food in 24 hours and if they turned on you you would have food poisoning in 24 hours they process all your food If my life depended on mexicans for survival I would...

Q: 

I've worked as a temp for a year. What rights do i have? (can i be laid off)?

A:  The rights you have - same pay as a permanent employee at the same level/same job. 20 days holiday plus 4 bank holidays (rising to 8 in April) They can still get rid of you, they should give 1 -2 weeks notice but legally don''t have to give you any. unfortunately you have very few rights until you have been employed for 2 years.you can be laid off or just finished as being the end of a temporary contract. You should have an employment contract with your agency, so read it. Most temp contracts state that you can be let go with no notice, or if you want to leave then it''s a week''s notice on your side. The nature of temp work means that you only have a job as long as the place that you''re working at still wants/needs you. If they don''t need you, your agency is under no obligation to find...

Q: 

I got a speeding ticket and I don't know what to do?

A:  You won''t win and it will end up costing you more...(court costs) Wait to receive a letter from the county court house. It will tell you the exact date and what to do if you wish to contest the matter. Be patient. It usually takes a few weeks. go cry about it.. Pay for it and drive slower next time. Even if it was 35MPH Speed limit you''d still be speeding. You could of caused a car crash. Just pay the ticket, more than likely they won''t drop it anyway. But you must call the court to verify the date....

Q: 

My Car was Damaged at the Dealership while Receiving Repairs, What Recourse do I Have?

A:  “I just returned from the Saab dealer with a rental car, because while I was waiting for some repairs to be completed on my 2005 Saab-like new, an employee in the shop (shop tech I assume) backed into my car (passenger front side) with another car. The manager came over to inform me of the bad news, he told me they would repair it at their body shop with new parts, paint etc, it should take about 3-4 days and would give me a loaner car, so I left my car there at the dealership. What recourse if any do I have?” What recourse do you want? Ordinarily, your recourse would be to have the shop “make you whole” again, meaning that they would fix your car at no charge to you and, ideally, provide you with a car to use while they are fixing your car. At this point you are...

Q:

Q: 

2nd husband, two babies, just wants to be friends and I don''t know what to do..?

A:  Seems like communication is still an issue...maybe you all should try marriage counseling to work on that(having a neutral party involved can be helpful when communication is an issue). Or, just research some ways to communicate effectively with each other. I think you need to be honest with one another what you all want to do. Having others tell you something he said concerning the status of marriage seems like that''s a problem, too. It shows that either he isn''t being honest to you what he want to do or others are sabotaging your relationship with your husband by lying on him...but only you know which is the case and it needs to be dealt with too. So basically the key is honest communication with one another. Just talk to him honestly and let him know he can do the same with you so you...

Q: 

My previous question:What is the process in California for getting reimbursed for court and attorney fees when your landlord dismisses an Unlawful Detainer action against you before it goes to trial?Thanks!And the answers I received:''You can get your filing fees if you timely file a memorandum of costs. If the rental agreement provides for attorney''s fees, you can include those in your memorandum of costs. ''Thank you, Mr. Cohen! You gave precisely the information I needed - all I had to do was Google ''memorandum of costs'', and I found the forms and further information.The second answer offered.. not quite so helpful;''If you have an attorney, ask him or her.''With all due respect, Mr. McCormick, an answer like this is just as much a waste of your time writing it as it was mine to read it. If I had an attorney, I wouldn''t need to ask. I consulted an attorney, via the internet, who wrote a motion for me. But that was the extent of our relationship. Unfortunately in the greater Sacramento area, finding an attorney that will represent the tenant is a fruitless exercise unless you have no income (legal aid), or are filthy rich (and probably wouldn''t be renting anyway). Even the Bar referral service couldn''t offer me a name. I have already carried this through In Pro Per since mid-March, I have my affirmative defenses and proof lined up and ready to present, and am awaiting a reply to my form interrogatories, which I served on the opposing attorney today. I also filed my memorandum of costs (for the preceding complaint) and filed an amended answer (for the present complaint) which stipulates that I am requesting a jury trial. By coincidence, today I also received notice of the trial date for the current complaint, which is July 8.So, my next question is: Is there an attorney among you ''law Gurus'' that I can hire just for representation in court? Most of the leg work is done, and we WILL win, I just don''t want to have to be the one presenting my case in court! =)And if that doesn''t qualify as a good question, please answer this;Is requesting a jury a good strategic move? And how will this play out now that the trial date had already been set - meaning, will the date have to be rescheduled, or will jury selection be on July 8?Or, should I withdraw the request for jury? What about stipulating to the Commissioner/ Judge Pro Tem? Does it work in my favor to not stipulate, and ask to appear in front of a Judge?Thank you in advance for your time and advice... including you, Mr. McCormick. ; )

A:  My apologies for my flippant answer. It is just that we get SO many questions from people asking us to second-guess their attorneys or avoid paying their attorneys for an answer to their question. The lawGuru free question service is first and foremost to provide a searchable database of information about legal issues of general interest, not to provide a back-up for people''s regular lawyers. So when you said you were asking for attorneys fees, your question appeared to be yet another person trying ''end run'' their own attorney. And since, as you point out, Mr. Cohen had given you the...
