I am concerned about injuries and them claiming the lot for themselves since they kept it up and used it for all those years. Am I correct in... Read more »
The driver had already tried to pass once and backed out because the road was that bad and then a mile or 2 later tried again. As he passed the wave of slush and ice caused me and the car in front to have to completely stop because we couldn't see and my driver side window got busted. I... Read more »
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. As a general matter in many jurisdictions, you probably would. Check with the Small Claims Court, either through its online resources or contacting an administrative person at the courthouse as to the types of cases...Read more »
We all have a right of privacy, which includes our "right of publicity." However, if your image was taken while you were in a public place, and/or your image was only briefly shown, it will be much harder to assert your claim. Please consult with an IP/privacy attorney to fully assess your rights.
My mother has paid 1500 of a 2000 contract. 500 of that was after we already expressed worries about the date. The wedding planner was contracted for day of services, photography, videography, flowers, photo booth, dj, invites, and some decorations. I never got anything that she was supposedly... Read more »
If the contract is governed under Alabama law, you should look at the contract itself. ALabama is a very conservative state in terms of contract law. The terms of the contract will govern, and courts are very reluctant to decide that this is just unfair to you. You should hire a lawyer in the state...Read more »
He is harrassing me to get out and says that I am a tresspasser but refuses to fire me, pay me, or give me a 30 day written notice to vacate although the Huntsville Police told him to do just that. He refuses to let me put the utilities in my name and he willfully let the utilities to be turned... Read more »
There is no Federal Law which will control here. And the adjoining landowners have probably acquiesced to the fence being the boundary line irrespective of deed legal descriptions. You can sue for a boundary dispute, but you will probably lose irrespective of your survey evidence.
The bill of sale does mean something. If you paid him 1800 and have a bill of sale and he refuses to give you the truck you can have him arrested for theft by deception 1st degree, in addition to suing him civilly. Good luck!

I am sorry for your loss. You can always hire an attorney to file a petition to remove the Administrator and seek to recoup expenses. However, when an Administrator closes an estate he or she must get the consent of the heirs. If the heirs refuse to consent, the probate court will hold a final...Read more »
No, under the facts as you have given them she cannot do that. On the other hand, if it turns out he did NOT have her permission, then she can, but it won't get her anything since he will then have to be spending money on a criminal defense attorney.
This is a very technical question that will depend on in depth analysis of the facts. I would suggest you schedule a meeting with an attorney that routinely practices personal injury law in the Federal courts.
I had a written signed contract for specific items in exchange for yard work w/ time frames for completion. Instead of doing work, they took the items, broke into the property, took additional items destroying/damaging others. Amount taken is upwards of 60k including vehicle, major appliances,...

1.Because I could not obtain legal counsel for this case and was running out of time (24 month statue of limitation), as Pro Se, my petition asked for a Bench Trial (good or not?); 2. Since it has been 30 days, after filing the Complaint and neither party has answered, even though they received the... Read more »
1. Bench trial versus Jury trial - it all depends on your venue (what county you are in) and the type of claim you have. Juries are drawn from the people of the county where you filed your claim - if those residents tend to be more conservative or liberal in general, that is likely what your jury...Read more »
Your question bridges four categories and it would be best for an attorney who is knowledgeable in Estate/Probate matters to address the estate-related aspect of it. As for the personal injury-based aspect of your question, it shouldn't be a problem for an attorney who represented a plaintiff...Read more »

Prior to the finalization of the eviction process, the LL has re-leased the property and as part of the lease, given to the new lessor my merchandise (over $250,000 worth), and moved them into the store property. I am currently... Read more »
The short answer is that it depends on what your lease allows and how much you owe the landlord. If this is going to lose you more money than allowed under the lease, then you should bring this immediately to the attention of the Court. I strongly recommend that you hire an attorney to represent...Read more »
I recently found out that several accounts (signature loans, credit cards) have not been paid by my (now ex) finance. Bankruptcy appears to be my only option. However, I am having to come up with the money to pay an atty.
Is litigation the same as a lawsuit? Can this turn into a... Read more »
Yes, litigation is another term for a lawsuit. If collection actions have been filed against you, then you will have been served with paper legal documents: a Summons and Complaint, either by certified mail or process server/sheriff. This is required for any lawsuit to move forward. Telephone...Read more »
