We need help with how we should word the motion filed to withdraw vs dismiss or what to call it? What is the best way to go about doing this to be 100% sure we are not responsible for the defendant's attorney fees and can the defense come back and try to sue us after we either withdraw or...

As the previous attorney said - you should sit down with an attorney who can do a complete evaluation and explain your options. It's basically impossible to give you a complete analysis without knowing more information. Ask an attorney in your area if you can buy an hour of their time for a...Read more »
Most lawyers will tell you not to file bankruptcy unless you have over $10,000 in debt (assuming you qualify for a chapter 7)... but it is a very personal decision and everyone has reasons why maybe they shouldn't file. You should sit down with an experienced BK attorney and have them look at...Read more »
You need to serve the initial papers on the registered agent and then what usually happens is they appoint an attorney to handle the matter. From there forward you would serve all your documents on the attorney representing the Corporation or LLC.

The prior response has good information. You should hire an attorney to let you know your options or contact a Bankruptcy attorney and discuss those options as well. And never again drive without auto insurance.
Your lawyer has a "lien" on your case protecting the value of the work they have done. The insurance company would love you to do that because then won't have to pay anything until you and the attorney work it out. In all my years of settling cases with insurance companies I have...Read more »
Years ago I was injured in the custody of the LA county sheriffs department. The injury left me with a brain and spine injury and diagnosed with an uncontrollable movement disorder. Apparently I had 2 years to file the claim, however I was in the sheriffs custody for 3 years. Can I still file a... Read more »
You need to sit down with an attorney who can analyze your situation. Were you in prison? Did you ever file a Government Tort Claim. These are other questions need to be answered in order for someone to see if you have any options still available.
There are many reasons why you would need to serve a Statement of Damages. It's not easy to answer your question in this forum without more information but I suggest that if one is required then you might as well serve it without the complaint.
Your question is a little hard to answer with the information provided. You should sit down in person (or by phone) with an attorney for a consultation where they can dive in deeper and get more facts. That should give you a good idea of what your options are. I would do this right away in case you...Read more »
It is very hard to analyze your case with the little bit of information provided. You should sit down with a personal injury attorney who can get all the information and explain what options are available.

...and took the titles to everything. She hasnt been in his life for decades but knew his elderly mother who my friend was caring for upon his death. Do I have any recourse? I know he wanted me to have these items as we were good friends for a long time and were close until his demise. He knew his... Read more »
If he never put anything in writing and didn't have a trust or will it would be very hard for you to prove in court that he wanted you to get those items. Did he tell anyone else besides you that he wanted you to get those items? If none of the above then I suggest you let her know of his...Read more »
I was not burned but suffered smoke inhalation. I had the truck for one hour. An auction employee drove the truck to the front of the lot for me to take delivery. I was told it was driveable. The Fire Dept had to come put out the fire.
As the previous person answers in detail you need to look at the terms of the auction. You most likely would have to prove they knew that the vehicle had a specific defect and sold it anyway without warning.
Because when you are done with all your treatment we have to send off to ALL your medical providers to get your full medical record. We also need to know who paid for your medical services... such as Medicare, Medi-Cal or private insurance because they need to be paid back. As the previous post...Read more »
Make sure to document everything you can and call a personal injury lawyer who might be able to help you. We don't charge upfront or ongoing fees and only make any money if we can settle your case. Make sure to get all the medical care you need because that is the only way to prove you were injured.
This is if both the defendant and attached business are named in the settlement. There would be a stipulation for entry of judgment attached to the settlement. The concern is the defendant defaulting and possibly filing bankruptcy prior to making payments.
