For the past six years the VA overpaid me for compensation and pension benefits. All that time I thought the benefit was a lifetime benefit.

Your Justia inquiry came in as a "Bankruptcy" question, so I assume you think that is the way to go. It might be. First, you may be judgment proof and filing might be unnecessary. Second, the VA might have a process in place to deal with this. If it's Bankruptcy, I'm...View More
It might seem odd to say but you might just be "judgment proof". In other words, you might not have any non-exempt assets or income for an unsecured creditor to pursue. If that's the case and if you can stomach it, you can essentially ignore the calls and letters. However,...View More

An attorney-client relationship, just like other kinds of relationships requires trust, among other things. It's clear that you do not trust your attorney. However, I don't see any benefit to your own lawyer to intentionally lie to you about anything quite frankly, let alone sabotaging...View More
If a client has an outstanding balance and overpays on an invoice, can we apply the overpayment to a different outstanding invoice or do we need to get permission first or do we just have to send them a check for the overpaid amount? Do I also need to contact them first if I sent back the overpaid... View More
As with many answers to legal questions, the answer is "it depends". It depends on what kind of contract you and your customer have. For example, a gym membership or statutorily defined consumer contract or retail installment contract may be regulated in such a way as to prohibit the...View More

No, you don't both need to listed as co-managers. Whether you are a co-manager or manger has little to no bearing on whether you are considered an employee. Employee status analysis is best done under IRS rules. You also don't need to be paid but being paid would bear on employee...View More
The short answer is no. In addition to a real estate attachment, which the plaintiff will soon record, there should have been an accompanying Complaint. You will have to Answer that and defend the case or resolve/settle it. Hopefully, your total exposure is no greater than $25,000 but depending...View More
Yes. The attorneys who file an appearance are the lawyers of record with the court on your behalf. That doesn't mean other lawyers in the firm cannot assist, behind the scenes, on a case. I think it's a matter of degree and what they are doing. Conducting legal research or drafting...View More
Do contract cancellation forms apply to online nonrefundable services? If the buyer had attempted to resolve the issue with the service provider to no avail within one day of purchasing it, do they still have the right to dispute the charges and are viable for refund?

You are only harming yourself by not being honest with your lawyer about this. Talk with your lawyer about it. This happens quite often. Perhaps there are expenses you aren't disclosing or are under-reporting. Maybe there are exemptions you haven't fully claimed. Maybe your Plan...View More
Yes, you should be able to do that once your Ch. 13 Plan is confirmed. The First Circuit has adopted the “complete snapshot rule” whereby the petition date sets the date for establishing exemptions. So, for instance, if a Chapter 13 debtor were to schedule his home at $300,000.00 with a...View More

Typically, service is made by leaving a summons & complaint at someone's "abode" or residence. Some types of actions require serving a defendant "in-hand", such as Contempt Motions usually. Small claims probably just requires abode service. The Plaintiff should have...View More

What happens depends upon which chapter bankruptcy you file--most likely 7 or 13 and when you file. Certain liens and judgments can be voided under the Bankruptcy Code, e.g., 11 USC 522 (f). Section 522(f) allows a debtor “to avoid or ‘wipe out’ a valid

If my business partner takes steals the commercial plate dump truck with no drivers license without me knowing and crashes into someone or causes injury can I get sued personally? Because he has no license and the only one on the insurance
Under the facts you stated above, it's unlikely you would be sued personally as a member of an LLC. If it's a partnership, you might be. I recommend hiring competent counsel to get into further details and review this more thoroughly.
