Q: 

small claims/breach of contract ?

A:  "I requested that my name be added to her AKC papers." You cannot make a claim for something that wasn't in the contract/agreement. If the contract says you co-own the dog and you have custody for the first two years and then he gets the dog, that's it. You don't get your name on the AKC papers unless your contract/agreement says so. Just showing the AKC number doesn't say that. "He refused, so I refused to turn over the dog." So, right there, you've breached the contract and you're going to lose on your refusal to turn the dog over to him. "Over the past 3 years I have heard rumors that this man does this kind of thing to others" The fact that he does "this...

Q: 

My attorney will not Finalize my Bankruptcy Until all Legal Fees are Paid, Is this Legal?

A:  “I recently hired an attorney to file for chapter 7 bankruptcy. I was told up front that the bankruptcy would not be final until all fees were paid. However, I was under the impression that in the meantime something would be done to prevent further legal action from being taken against me. Specifically, I am being sued under an uninsured motorist law that says unless I pay a $10,000 deposit I will loose my drivers license. My attorney says that he won’t do anything until all fees are paid in full. I have paid him $700.00 of a $1300 total. Is this reasonable normal practice? I also told him that I wanted and assumed that my credit report(s) would be used...

Q: 

breaking my lease

A:  "Will it make a difference who I contact first: my property mgr or an attorney?" Depends. What results are you looking for with either option? "Either way, I want out with as little penalty as possible. Most importantly, I don't want my guarantors (good ol' mom & dad) to be penalized." Unfortunately, the first thing you need to do is separate the word "little" from the word "penalty". I can't predict what your LL will do under any given set of circumstances but, as a former landlord, I can tell you what I'd probably do. You might think it mean but you have to look at the landlord's point of view. He's in business, too. And if he loses money on the business he's looking at the possibility...

Q: 

Lost Securities--Q

A:  Originally Posted by Notalawyer1 My question is the following: Is it unreasonable to expect a (large) publicly traded company to retain records of who their stockholders are, how many shares they own, and when they were purchased/sold? No, it is unreasonable to expect the brokerage to retain your records three decades after an alleged purchase. By way of comparison, the IRS only requires you retain your income filings for seven years. Originally Posted by Notalawyer1 A second question is: Is there a service which can investigate this for me? (I?d be happy to pay the fee.) How should I proceed? You could contact the SEC and ask them if you have any chance at recovering these transactions. Thank you for your...

Q: 

What is the binding contract date for a purchase agreement with a counter? What about verbal or email offers?

A:  While the venerable Howard and peteeisner may be correct... your agent also had a duty, to notify you of all "goings-on", and the fact that s/he didn''t inform you of "verbal offers" (which are indeed unenforceable) took, from you, the ability to decide if you wanted to investigate whether those verbal offers could be turned into written ones. S/he damaged your ability to make an informed decision, by hiding information from you (whether binding or not), that might have impacted your decision... and, oh, surprise, tipped your decision in the direction that made him/her the most money. Sorry... s/he did NOT have your best interests at heart... sounds as though s/he put him/herself before you, and that''s a serious breech of the code of ethics. Please, do us all a favour,...

Q: 

What is "Unrelated Prior Damage" on an Insurance Estimate for damage on my car?

A:  u may not get paid for dammage unrelated to the accident..u may have to file against the tow co They are saying that you had other damage to your car, and they are deducting what they feel the other damage costs are, from your current claim. If you do have unrelated damage, it''s only fair that the insurance company not have to pay for that, unless a claim has been made. Also, the adjuster works for the insurance company, not you. He wants to come back with the lowest bid, for the sake of the company. If you feel you are not being treated reasonably, you can contact the Insurance Commission, and they can explain how the process works. The bottom line is, the insurance company only pays for the current damage. Your car will be valued at blue book,plus or minus...

Q: 

What is the validity of entrapment laws? (Breaking Bad)?

A:  the officer was under cover? I think that what the officer did was actually, legal (I saw the episode, Badger''s a ******* idiot, right?). On IMDB a person linked a post to a snopes.com post where a similar situation took place, only the people said that it was legal for the officer to do so. When working under cover you don''t have to reveal your the police ( contrary to popular belief, all it gets you is dead) so in that context there would be no entrapment, Stupid people believe, still to this day, that an officer has to reveal himself. Well, if you were a cop and going in to a "war zone" as a spy, and they asked you "are you a spy?" what would you want the laws to permit: A. Tell them "yep, you got me, go ahead and kill me now",...

Q: 

The State Bar closed my bankruptcy attorney''s office. Where are my files? Where is my money? What can I do?

A:  Before I get to your answer, let me give you a little background information. When a client signs a fee agreement with an attorney, it is customary though not required in all cases for the client to pay the attorney some money in advance. The attorney is required by law to put that money in a special bank account, which is called a ''trust account.'' As the attorney works on a client''s case, he or she is allowed to withdraw an amount out of the trust account that corresponds to the amount of time spent times the attorney''s hourly rate. One of the easiest ways for an attorney to be disbarred is to not take...

Q: 

Judge nixes the deal/now what?

A:  I will not accept jail for this. Then it looks like you are going to trial. Either with this attorney or a new one. There is no way either the DA or your attorney can force the judge to accept the agreement. If i hire new council can this case be looked at and maybe a different deal put together. Anything is possible. What about going to the grand jury for an indictmwent do they have a time limit for this? 1 year for a misdemeanor 2 + depending upon the charge for a felony. What are some options to avoid a trial. plead guilty. If i dont have any more funds this case goes back to the original judge a legal aid judge. What makes you think it does not stay with the same judge? What is a legal aid judge? if that's what the...
