I was in a group counseling program as part of my probation requirement last year, and my counselor asked if he could take out a loan as I had just received my settlement from a car accident, disability and back pay. He only knew this info because of the group counseling sessions. I loaned him a... Read more »
First of all, if this was a licensed counselor you went to it is illegal for him to ask you for a loan. Secondly, if he owes you money and you can prove that by contract you should definitely take him to court.
Since the amount is for less than $5,000 I would suggest either filing a claim...Read more »
If you're asking whether there are law firms who help individuals purchase the rights to media content in order to license, distribute, re-air, etc., the answer is a yes. My firm can do just that as well as many others.
If you're asking whether this is legal, the short answer appears to be yes. Without seeing the bylaws it would be hard to give you a definite answer, but typically the bylaws and the Articles of Incorporation govern the affairs of Non-Profits unless prohibited by law.
I was in a bad car accident 2 years ago and got a ticket, though I wasn't at fault, for driving without a license. I did have my license with me, but I was seriously hurt and told not to move, and it was in the back seat. I told the trooper this, and later found the license in my vehicle at the... Read more »

We turned the house (&keys) over to the landlord on 1/22/2017. On 2/22/2017, the landlord sent an intent to lay claim to our damage deposit (it was dated 2/16/2017). My calculations have the letter sent 31 days after they took back possession. FSS says they have within 30 days to notify us of... Read more »
To answer your question, it depends. On a Month to Month contract, FL law requires you provide the LL with 15 days notice that you're moving out. Assuming you did NOT comply with that requirement, if the LL actually sent the letter, via certified mail, on 2/16 then his notice should be considered...Read more »
Driving. The sheriff spelled my last name incorrectly as in completely wrong when I pointed out to him he said to call and the county clerk would call him to verify and then it would be removed. This occurred in St Johns county Florida. What is my recourse.
You would need to provide a little more information. Were you ticketed for rear-ending someone or for something else? Are you trying to determine if the ticket can be thrown out because of the misspelling of your last name? I'd suggest reaching out to an attorney.
First step: you'll need an EIN. When obtaining an EIN, the legal procedures you would have to follow aren't that much different from if you were setting up an ecommerce site for yourself except that you would identify yourself as an "authorized third party designee". The process of doing that is...Read more »
If all you need is to figure out a way to provide notice to the Defendant, I'd suggest searching on google for "Process Servers in [Enter City], CA".
