Q: Why can't I find an attorney to take my case. City Council is going to demolish my home for no reason.

I have 4 different licensed contractors say it doesn't need to be demolished. I had 2 licensed contractor try to pull a permit and was denied. I just want to remodel this home and live in it. I go to court tomorrow, on city wanting to dismiss it. My hearing is set for April 9th, if it's not dismissed tomorrow.

A: If you had your April 9th hearing already, it could be a moot point, but attorneys might be apprehensive about charging for services where they have difficulty in predicting an outcome. You could keep trying. Another issue is that the health crisis has paralyzed court operations and professional activities nationwide. Good luck
