Your question is too vague regarding the word "harassing". I suggest you post a new inquiry with a very short summary of the wrongdoing you are complaining of (up to about 4 or 5 sentences). In any event, if the "harassing" that you complain of falls under a category of wrongdoing that a Court...Read more »
Your options include (A) calling the police, as destruction of your personal property without your consent is a crime (unless you abandoned your items), (B) demanding that she compensate you for the value of the destroyed items (or replace them), and if she refuses, filing a lawsuit against her...Read more »
First, whether the contract was breached depends a lot on what you mean by "shabby". Breaching a contract means either not performing all or part of the job or not meeting specifications. Assuming you do have a breach, before anything, you should address the issue with the contractor to see if...Read more »

Regarding the issue of pressing a criminal charge (such as destruction of personal property), that is a question for the local law enforcement authorities.

I've been with this agent for 15 years and called 3 different times through during the years for a price check on different companies. I was told by my agent that the company That I was with would be the cheapest. This was not the truth. I decided to go with another agent who pulled a quote... Read more »
If you didn't actually lose money by paying a higher premium, you are not damaged in any way (other than aggravation) and therefore have no ground to sue. If you did lose money, theoretically, you could sue for professional malpractice (negligence), but for only a $1K difference, it would be far...Read more »
I presume you mean gouging, not gauging, and your question is vague about what occurred. In any event, certain categories of complaints regarding insurance providers can be made to the Florida Dept. of Financial Services - see https://www.myfloridacfo.com/Division/Consumers/needourhelp.htm.
Yes, he can file, but the real question is, what are his chances of prevailing? That depends on various factors, including whether there was a tow-away zone sign, what type of road it was on the side of, whether the side of the road is legal right-of-way, and other facts. For example, If it was...Read more »

After vacating my apartment complex, my previous landlord is threatening to send claims to collections. We did not put down a security deposit. We dispute the claim they are making. They refuse to send me the bill for damages, just stating " it cost xxxx to fix." They have only contacted me through... Read more »
By "collections", I think you mean using a collection agency or collection law firm to demand payment from you. Sure, that's merely using a third party to act on behalf of the landlord instead of the landlord itself/himself/herself making the demands. If that occurs, send back a written dispute...Read more »
Read the entire Florida Rules of Civil Procedure, which you can find on-line. There is a rule allowing for petitioning the Court to allow for presuit depositions. That rule is rarely used, and in my 34 years of litigation practice, I have never used it. First, it costs just as much to file that...Read more »
You did not indicate what type of incident is giving rise to your need to make a claim. If you mean for police misconduct, such as false arrest and/or excessive force, you need an attorney who handles civil rights cases and/or police misconduct cases. That's usually what people are looking for...Read more »
I assume you mean, "How can a defend myself in a subrogation lawsuit that's been filed against me?" The answer is that you first consult, in person, an attorney who handles accident defense. You probably will have to pay a reasonable consultation fee. The attorney will go over with you the...Read more »
In general, no, but you cannot get a reliable professional opinion on this with your on-line inquiry. You need to consult an attorney in person or by phone, so that an attorney can interview you in detail and review all estate planning documents (if any).
You inquiry is too vague to get a meaningful response; you need to be more specific about the following: Do you mean the defendant's lawyer filed a motion to dismiss the case? And is the case in small claims court, or a higher court? Is the motion to dismiss set for hearing? Are there any...Read more »

You didn't ask a question, but I suppose you are asking, "Can I take legal action against the dealer?" In your situation, you can't get a quick answer on-line. You must sit down with an attorney who will review all your documents related to the transaction and discuss the details of the...Read more »
I live in a mobile home park and I was under the impression that I was purchasing it. Basically like a mortgage payment and then a lot rent. In any case the park sold to another owner and my title is in that business name, and my lease is the original owners business name. The new owners stated... Read more »
It's legally impossible to be "under the impression that I was purchasing it" if you didn't have a legal document drawn up for that purpose. I'm guessing that the new owner of the mobile home park intends to kick you and the other residents out at some point in order to turn the property over to...Read more »
You must timely file a response to the petition, regardless of the incorrect name. If there's no way the named person can be the child's father, you would indicate that in your response.

You didn't indicate if there is a PA outstanding arrest warrant, which makes a difference as to how to tackle the problem. Were you a no-show for a required appearance in PA? If so, there likely is a warrant. Whether there's a warrant or not, it should not cause you to give up your legal rights...Read more »
