Q: Can my vendor impose a cancelation fee but then allow themselves to cancel at any time?

Your contract governs your engagement. If they're the ones cancelling, then the cancellation fee, as a general standard, shouldn't apply, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the contract is written that way. I'd suggest having an attorney review the verbiage for you.

Hello, I or any other contracts attorney would be happy to help you out with this, but providing language for a contractual agreement is a service that you'd need to pay for. It's highly unlikely any attorney on here would be willing to offer their services for free to provide you such verbiage.

In Arizona, the implied warranty on a vehicle is 15 days or 500 miles, whichever comes first. This warranty covers issues that make the vehicle inoperable within that period of time. I'm not sure if you purchased an additional warranty, because that is most likely your primary resource to fix... Read more »

Q: Does Arizona require dealers to have full insurance coverage on financed vehicles?

I know they will probably demand it but say they didn’t and the vehicle was totaled the first week and had no collision insurance. Is there a gap time or would the dealer be responsible for some of it

A customer is required to have full coverage insurance on financed vehicles prior to departing the dealership with the vehicle on the day of purchase.

You could try subpoenaing them, but your attorney should already know that, unless it's small claims court or you don't have an attorney. You also have no guarantee that you'd get them, since Verizon is under no obligation to keep a copy of your messages for that long.

They outsource clients to brand new photographers with little to no experience. Not professionals. They are refusing a refund.

Whether or not you're entitled to cancel the contract and get your money back is entirely based on the terms of the agreement itself, whether it specified a standard of experience that was required for the photographer performing the work and whether or not they were permitted to outsource the...

Unfortunately some key components are missing from your question in order for an attorney to provide you with an answer. It's important to know who has the money that you gave to the boyfriend. Did he pay it toward his car, did he put it as a deposit on your car, or does he still have it? If... Read more »

The cost will vary depending on the experience level of the attorney, the complexity of the agreement, and the volume of edits that need to be made. I'd recommend setting up a free consultation with an attorney. In doing so, they can discuss your specific needs and give you a more accurate estimate.
