You actually raise a couple different issues here. 1. Can Court documents available on PACER lawfully be disclosed on social media? Yes, because they're public records, and the fact that the discloser is a lawyer who is not on your case is irrelevant. 2. Can someone lawfully make fun of you... Read more »
I confronted this woman's friend about her issue with my child. She has been talking about my son for quite some time now, and it needed to be addressed. I walked up the driveway of her best friend, when I saw her there. I walked up to her, and told her "I am disappointed in you". I... Read more »

This is a question of military (federal) law, and of the law of Washington State. So why did you ask it in Justia > Ask a Lawyer > Florida; it has nothing to do with Florida law?

Defend yourself against what? You said the officers left without arresting you, and I assume you mean they also did not give you any notice to appear in court. Also, from your description, it does not sound like the type of police case where they will be in on-going investigation to determine if... Read more »

Nobody is required to furnish internet access, unless the requirement is specifically mentioned in the lease. You have some options, I think: pay to upgrade the condo's cabling; move; or see if you can access the internet via satellite or some other wireless method of connecting to the... Read more »
Can an agreement via text be used in court as a legal binding agreement?
answered on Feb 26, 2020
Usually oral agreements would be considered to be legally binding if the terms can be sufficiently proven. The statute of limitations can be different if an agreement is not in writing. While it's possible that a judge might for some reason think a text message doesn't qualify as a... Read more »

In Florida, you need two-party consent to record a conversation. Meaning that everyone involved in the conversation must consent to the recording.

Obviously the attorney's duties (as trustee, I assume) are not done, at least until the checks are properly written, accepted, and deposited. It looks like the attorney wants to meet with you about this, which also indicates that the matter is not over.
I applied to be an amazon driver, the application asked if I was 21, my birthday was in a couple weeks so I said yes. I was hired on Nov 30th.

In general, most employment is "at will". This means that an employer doesn't need a reason to fire someone. So yes, they can terminate you even under the questionable circumstances you describe.

I don't think you need counsel yet - as you have not given the lender time to digest the information they probably just received yesterday or maybe not even until today.
But - if Carrington proceeds to foreclosure then you must seek counsel immediately. In the meantime you can ask for... Read more »
