Q: 

Where can i find an attorney that deals with business laws but is willing to work pro-bono?

A:  Your county bar association has a pro bono program, but the resources are limited and generally are used for people facing foreclosure, eviction, battered spouses, child support collection, and the like. Obviously this is for people whose income is low enough to qualify them for this service. You were vague about your specific issue, but if you are seeking an attorney for commercial purposes you will probably have to hire one. However, if you contact your bar association''s lawyer referral service, you can get a brief consultation at minimal cost....

Q: 

I was in a car accident back in 2003 while driving my sister''s car. My sister did not have insurance at the time, so I received a ticket for ''no insurance'' and also for ''failure to yield'' (the accident was my fault). I went to court and paid the fines and the tickets.The person that I got into the accident with - her insurance company put in a judgement against me for the damages to her vehicle (which were around $3000). I did not pay this.I was recently pulled over for speeding, and come to find out my license was suspended for not paying this $3000. I was arrested and was able to Ibond out because I have no record what-so-ever for anything. I went to court and the judge advised me to get a lawyer to help me with my case. My question is, how do I know if I am eligible for a public defender, and if I am not, where can I find an attorney that will do a free initial consult and then take payments for services? I would really like to get this taken care of, as I am a single mom and I work 2 jobs to support my daughters. I don''t want to be driving around on a suspended license so I want to set up some sort of payment plan to take care of all of this. I am just confused as to where to get started.

Q: 

Should I be a co-trustee?

A:  I bet a lawyer would tell you that setting up two trusts would be impractical. I would try calling the Italian Embassy in Manhattan, they undoubtedly have a list of lawyers versed in Italian inheritance law who reside in the US. "I really don't want to do this." Not sure what you mean here, but you're free to tell mom you aren't interested (and could decline to serve if named). "I think this means that in order for some administrative action to be taken, both persons must act." Depends on what the trust says but, in general, yes. And it's a bad idea for more than one relative to be appointed "chief" so to speak. "For example, if my mom wanted to borrow money...

Q: 

Employment Contract in Florida

A:  "Is this true?" Yes. "Do I have something that may be enforcable?" Since we have not read your agreement, we have no possible way of knowing. "If so, where do I find an attorney to consult with?" There is a Find A lawyer section to the right of this screen. Note that the contract isn't going to help if-when the place goes belly up. That shouldn't be the main reason you want a contract. "It has no specific termination clause as to what I may be terminated for or even if I can terminate the agreement on my own." Then you're free to sue them for what's owed you for the rest of the term. "I have been told by several attorney's that a written and...

Q: 

Is this Legal?

A:  --Meanwhile has she not committed a crime? Nope. Ultimately, the property will have to be accounted for and the debts distributed between you. "I thought everything was community property in CA." Then you thought wrong. Whether property is characterized as "community property" or not depends on when and how it was acquired. More importantly, that property is community property doesn't mean that both spouses must consent to all uses of such property. "I have an attorney that says everything will come out in the wash?" This is a statement, not a question. If that phenomenally vague and unhelpful statement is all your lawyer is telling you, then you might consider getting a new one. I submit that your

Q: 

LLC formation question

A:  I am surprised that you cannot find an attorney who will advise you on the structure just because the original LLCs are in different jurisdictions. I would suggest you keep looking for a lawyer who can answer your questions. Also, while I agree that Delaware series LLCs are relatively new, our firm has set up several and I am sure that other attorneys have used them as well. If an attorney is unwilling to consider them, I would wonder whether he has enough experience with LLCs to advise you. However, I don't see how you think a series LLC would help at this point since you already have gone through the expense of setting up two LLCs and don't propose to...

Q: 

Erroneous sentence on probation violation

A:  If the time to appeal something has expired on you, I think that you will have a very difficult time finding an attorney to take your case.  And, if you can't get the state to acknowledge that it made an error, you probably are not going to get it to give you "compensation". Hopefully, gemini47 will come by over the weekend and perhaps give you some more definitive advice. First, whether or not the sentence was "erroneous" depends upon when the sentencing occurred.  The rules in Indiana changed effective 7-1-05 such that as in your case, the 4 years + 4 was an advisory sentence and upon violation, you could be sentenced to serve all the remaining time.  Second, NO, you can't apply time served in one case to another...

Q: 

Can or should I sue my boss for taking taxes from my paychecks and not paying the IRS?

A:  You certainly have a claim against the employer.  This issue is whether it is worth your time and money to go after the employer because he may or may not have any money to collect.  The state labor department may be your best bet to call as opposed to hiring a private attorney.  The labor department will investigate the employer and do all the work that you would pay big bucks toa lawyer to do.  The labor department will be able to sue and collect money from the employer.  You may want to talk to a lawyer in your state as to whether the state has a victim fund that can be tapped into in cases like this.  I would hire a general litigator to help you- a firm with...
