If you are asking about attorney fees, it will vary. Generally, a relatively sizeable retainer is required. After a few calls, you will have an idea of the costs. Some attorneys are reasonable and some are not. Some attorneys are flexible and some are not. I am prevented from quoting figures.
It is unlikely you will find an attorney that offers free representation for in matters such as this, but you may be able to find one who is affordable and willing to assist you. Perhaps an attorney can assist you with a certain task for a price you can afford. You will need to keep calling.
Yes, law enforement can.keep your under survellance based on false accusations of criminal activity. There are activities that would require more than accusations. Most people would love a greater police presence in their neighborhood due to catalytic converter theft, speeding and package theft.
I am the owner of a LLC and I signed an agreement with someone and in the contract there is no mention of the business LLC name, it only has my personal name. I want to take someone to court for breach of written and verbal contract. I personally have no assets or money outside of the LLC, so if... View More
If the contract has nothing to do with the business, the business shouldn't be liable. It seems you are expecting a cross-complaint. If the contract was entered into for the benefit of the business, expect the other party to go after you and the LLC. Without knowing more, it's impossible...View More

The Judicial Branch's website and the law library have vast resources. It is unlikely legal aid will assist in this matter. It's also unlikely an attorney will assist you on a contingency basis. Some attorneys will be willing to assist you on a limited basis or perhaps a hybrid basis...View More
I ran out of gas and the neighbors called the cops saying that I was camping the sheriff's department showed up he pulled and he opened my door pulled me out of my car denied me a supervisor at 8:10 times only one of them gave me their badge number the other one didn't want to and he did...

Quite simply, there is no possible way a supervisor can attend to every interaction an law enforcement officer has with the public. Do expect each time an officer writes a parking ticket, issues driving citation, arrests a murderer or anything else a person has a right to immediately speak to a...View More
Unfortunately, you have a problem,but you are not without hope. Upon divorce the property acquired during the marriage is distributed equitably. Upon the break up of unmarried couples the property goes to whomever bought it. Her name on the title and presumably the mortgage definitely are in her...View More
The LLC I will be a part of soon has 5 total partners. I’m a very minority partner and have no real concerns about anything but want to be diligent and have an attorney read through the contract for me.
Your post is refreshing. The majority of minority owners only contact attorneys after things have gone horribly wrong. Most business attorneys will be able to assist you. Contact several to determine who works for you. Some attorneys are affordable and some are not.

Vendors are serving me with lawsuits under my company name. Do I need to show up to court? I have no personal guaranties to them. If they serve me under my name, do I have to show up to court? Does the fact that it was an S corporation save me? I have not filed for bankruptcy. I was told no need... View More
The fact that it was an S corporation doesn't save you.
Ignoring the lawsuits would be a poor decision. How to respond (or not) depends on many factors. When a business is owned by only a few shareholders (or members) these individuals will often be sued individually as well. All to...View More
I doubt it violtates the criminal code to train your clients at a commercial gym (24 hour fitness) without the gym knowing. The gym can prohibit you from conducting business on its premises, especially if you are in direct competition with the services they provide if they employ or contract with...View More
He posed as a fake persona in order to obtain nude pictures from a female friend. He told her that he would cash app her the money and that her face didn't need to be shown to promote anonymity and let her know that he would be posting them online.

Assuming everyone is an adult, it is possible for criminal charges to be filed against your friend, but it seems unlikely. The victim files a police report. The victim does not file criminal charges. The prosecutor would do that if appropriate.

This is a tough question because very few injuries or deaths to pets result in monetary damages that exceed small claims jurisdiction. Even if it did go over $10,000, it's doubtful an attorney would be able to take the case because it would cost prohibitive.
To explain simply, I recently started a family business with my family. We do this full-time, we are a logistics transportation company.

I don't know how a judge would rule in a civil lawsuit. I don't know if you have done anything illegal, but your post does raise some questions. I am not sure what services you promised. How does traffic become an issue in a 1,800 mile trip? How can they simply refuse service? It seems...View More
How should I set things up such that once I'm married, my current company and any future business I start, will be treated as separate property?I'm ok with everything else being treated as community property.
This can be addressed in a prenuptial agreement. With or without a prenuptial agreement, you will need to form and maintain business(es) as separate property. It is certainly nice that you are addressing this now. Obviously, an attorney can assist you.
For your felony convictions with state prison sentences, you are most likely not eligible to have your conviction dismissed or or lowered to a misdemeanor. But you can apply for a certificate of rehabilitation and pardon. Expungements do not exist in California. An attorney may be able to help you.
My past employer gave me a new phone every year and I signed a contract stating I would give it back each year. Every year that I have worked there they let us keep our devices after we got new ones. They let me keep my iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 in the past. I left the company 5 months ago and they... View More
You signed a contract stating you would give it back each year. It is perfectly legal for your past employer to request you give back your company phone even though they didn’t ask for it back in the past. They were being nice before because you were an employee, now you are not.
