I doubt any attorney advertises that they do that sort of thing, so you will just want to call/email some attorneys and ask. Search for ones that do personal injury cases so they know the pitfalls to watch out for.
My mother in law filed a PIP claim against my auto insurance, for an accident I had no involvement in from 11/16. It's is a last ditch effort by her lawyer to get money.

There was an investigation and subsequently the center’s license renewal was denied. My daughter is no longer working there (she wasn’t fired but left... Read more »
Were draws against commission. Nowhere in the signed job offer did it stipulate that I have to repay the draws after terminating my employment. Do I have to repay the draws? I had taxes deducted from the draws.
Possibly not. There are very specific rules on repayment of draws, and there may be unlawful deductions due to this that could potentially wipe out the debt, might even put some money in your pocket if done right.
We were both living with her friends from work and we got in a fight one day going to work/school and during her day at work she broke up with me and I was immediately rendered homeless.

There is no law that requires it. However, there also is no law that requires you to show up to work on time. The point being, your employer can require it and refusal could be seen as insubordination.
Depends, are they a licensed contractor? If they are, then you should be good. If you hired someone else, well, you were not supposed to and you may be on the hook. File a claim with your homeowner's policy and see if they can sort it out.
I own a business and my friend wanted some extra cash. He was working at the job site and twisted his ankle. He ended up having to have surgery. Am I liable for his injuries. He worked a total of maybe 2 months at best/112 hours total. Pay was strictly under the table and no written contract.
I have seen all these adds on FB stating if a person has stripped that they are owed min wage plus the money they paid to the house, bartender, waitresses, dj, hostess, and security. is this true? if so, what kind of lawyer should i hire?
You need an employment law attorney, preferably one who has handled these types of claims against strip clubs. However, keep in mind the statute of limitations has limits as to how far back you can get wages back, so act quickly.

Injury happened in dec 2015 and all of the appropriate paperwork that providence gave me was filled out and returned to my employer the very next day as they had set up a appointment with a hand specialist. That bill apparently got paid and I... Read more »
This is why you should have hired an attorney back when you received the notice of the small claims case. You may be able to have the judgment set aside, but seek out a consumer protection attorney (not me) ASAP. Not next week, NOW. Use Google and search to find one. Time is of the essence, and was...Read more »
