In the context of real estate transactions, the concept of a "cooling-off" period, where a party can cancel a contract without penalty, varies significantly depending on the jurisdiction and specific laws that govern residential property sales. Generally, cooling-off periods are more...View More
To suggest a state mushroom for Alabama, you'll need to engage with the state legislative process. Start by identifying a state legislator, either a senator or representative, who would be interested in sponsoring a bill to designate a state mushroom.

The car is payed off in my dads name but I pay for everything else (insurance, gas, maintenance, etc). My parents are collectively kicking me out and said that I am to leave the keys for my vehicle here but I have no other transportation. Please help ASAP.
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. It depends what the document you mention is. If it is correspondence and you suspect the signature is forged or that the document is otherwise not legitimate, you could pick up the phone and ask the attorney if...View More
I have always been fascinated with being a criminal defense attorney. So much so that I got my Bachelor's in Criminal Justice from UAB here in AL. I ended up with an office job in freight logistics making 72k a year and the job is decent. I don't mind doing it, but it's just not... View More
This is really a question that involves lots of thought. Congratulations on your Criminal Justice degree. That's a big accomplishment. Only you can make this decision, based on your schedule, finances, and personal commitments. Going to law school part-time at night can be consuming, and it...View More
I live in the neighborhood in eastern Birmingham, AL which has a posted speed limit of 25 mph. However, a considerable number of people go anywhere from 40 to 50 mph, even at night. I walk my dog at night. Initially, I wore a reflective vest and put a lighted LED collar with reflective harness... View More
About a year ago, I contacted my elementary school, requesting my school transcript. When I received it, I noticed there was no certified birth certificate number. I thought this was odd, because I don't know how I was registered to attend school without one, since this number legitimizes the... View More
I’m being harassed by a man I met online. We were in a long distance digital relationship that I ended, but now he won’t go away. He’s sending threats/messages/images to me/my family. How can I make him stop?
I would suggest calling the non-emergency number for you local police department. Describe the situation and detail the threatening messages. You might be able to get a protection from abuse order based on the facts of your situation.
Likely depends on the language of the lease agreement, property insurance agreements, and renters insurance agreements. I would suggest taking those documents to an attorney for review to get specific advise.
Any time you are starting a business or entering into a significant transaction it is wise to work with an attorney. The articles you mention are relevant to L.L.C.s that perform professional services and "series" L.L.C.s. These provisions may apply depending on whether you have formed an...View More
I am a junior in high school and want to be lawyer. I need a bachelors to get into law school and want that to be in paralegal studies as that seems like an easier field to start off in without job experience. I have found certificates and 2-year programs but maybe I have overlooked somewhere.... View More
Don't knock yourself out selecting a major on the basis of whether it will be best-suited for law school. Paralegal studies is good. Criminal justice is good too, as are dozens of majors you can choose from. They both give you options if your plans change. Experienced paralegals do much of the...View More
An Alabama attorney who works with hospital/healthcare administration issues, patient bill of rights, etc. would know best. But as a general matter in any jurisdiction, a doctor, nurse, or other treating ER staff who asks an accompanying visitor to leave for sound reasons is not likely to have...View More
