I was the cause of a car accident just a finder bender. Gave him my insurance info. That was the 7th of this month. On the 24th I received a letter from a law firm asking for me to send a copy of my insurance policy and declaration of policy limits. And to inform my insurance company of this.... Read more »
As far as I can tell, the lawyer has not done anything improper, however you do not have to comply with his request. Instead, I would inform your insurance company of your accident and forward a copy of the attorney's letter to your insurance and let your insurance company handle this from here.
Yes, you can, however you need to read and review the listing agreement to see if there are any ramifications you might have if you terminate the listing agreement ahead of time. Also you need to read and review the listing agreement to see what, if anything, it says if you change you mind again...Read more »
The sheriffs office of the parish I live in in Louisiana searched my man cave which is in the back yard of my grandmothers property. I was arrested earlier that day.

This sounds defensible and something you should certainly seek a consult or 2 with criminal defense attorneys in your area. Usually unless exigent circumstances exist, law enforcement usually does not take this action without a warrant. If there is a warrant, then you need to determine whether...Read more »

Generally speaking this is a traffic offense so depending on which jurisdiction (locality) where the ticket was issued, you are looking at the amount of the fine and court costs of that locality plus in some instances, driving school.
We were together during the accident, after the car was totaled she left. I do not believe she was found at fault. The loan was paid by my insurance company. But she hired and accident attorney and is going after the other party.
You should discuss with your attorney the reasons he wants you to accept and the pros and cons of not accepting at this time. If, after speaking with your attorney, you are dissatisfied with his representation, then give look for another attorney.
The case dates back to 1993, but had many continuances. I was able to find the basic details, but I am looking for something more in depth. I am also looking for a date when the convicted was released from prison.
Depending on how much depth you are seeking, the best way to do this might be to go to the court house and ask to review the paper file. As for prison release date of someone, again it might depend on how long ago, but you can either start online with Louisiana Department of Public Safety and...Read more »
I filed through the state with no attorney. Child support office is claiming they can't find out where he work. He's a truck driver with cdl and they still haven't suspended his license with 20k in arrears. If his license is threatened to be suspended he'll pay.
Following up on the post of attorney Badeaux, I would recommend that you contact a few family law attorneys in your area----some will provide a complimentary consultation---some do not, so ask ahead of time if there will be a charge----and meet with the attorneys, specifically discuss your case and...Read more »
Anyone can always sue but the real question is whether or not you have a good chance to recover. You do not indicate whether or not you have filed a claim against the homeowner insurance, but if not, I recommend you do that first (and immediately) and see what position the homeowner insurance...Read more »

The federal judge set a court date in Jan. 22, and wants to move the case along. I just want to be done with it and settle for as much as you think we can get. I can either pay you byy the hour or one forth of what we get, your choice.
Use the Justia Find a lawyer tab above and search for personal injury lawyers (or whichever subject matter your lawsuit is) in your area and contact a few of them until you find one with whom you are comfortable. I know most lawyers will probably provide a free initial telephone or in person...Read more »
As a guarantor on my daughter’s apartment in NYC, I am responsible for paying rent for a roommate who did not pay their last 4 months of rent (~$5016). Do I have any avenues to recoup this money from the non-paying roommate?
Received a ticket for parking too close to a fire hydrant at 4:48 am which I paid. Then just received a notice for another ticket, which apparently was issued at 8:16 am the same day. I did not receive this ticket and was not even aware of it until today. Do I have to also pay this one?
On 1 hand, at this point in time, why does it matter? Anyway, I assume you have a written lease and if the lease has provisions which allow the landlord to not renew the lease, then as long as he followed those provisions for non-renewal, then he's compliant.
In answer to your question, yes. I don't think his excuse is valid however law enforcement is not require to have each driver involved in a MVA given a breathlyzer test. Now, if you think the law enforcement really breached his duties, then you can assert a complaint with his supervisor or...Read more »
Chemotherapy makes me really sick and really tired. I'm in a lot of pain due to ovarian, colon, peritoneum, breast cancer and a colostomy that is prolapsing so I park my car right outside my house to avoid walking. There is a no parking sign from 7am to 6pm and sometimes i won't wake up... Read more »
If you bring proof of your condition to Court and have a sympathetic prosecutor, then he has the discetion to dismiss your ticket and may do so this time, however, you are committing parking infractions and if you continue to do so, he may become less sympathetic. Sorry.
