Yes, you can possibly sue the person who caused the fire for negligence or gross negligence. Gross negligence is somewhat harder to prove but could give rise to punitive damages if you sustained bodily injuries from the fire.
There are strategic reasons why you might not choose to sue...View More

Her and boyfriend are joint tenants on her other property both on deed. The other property is in my mom's name only and is paid in full and I live in the house .I have to file paperwork when she dies .What paperwork should I have ready in the State of Nevada?
If your mother dies before her boyfriend, he will end up owning the property they hold in joint tenancy. If you are an only child and your mother dies without a will you will have to probate the house solely in her name but you will get it unless creditors have a claim. Even if she had willed the...View More
He approached me asking me questions about my dog and before I knew he has his private parts hanging out of his pants, he then proceeded to say he wanted to touch himself to me, where he then proceeded to having an erection.

A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for a week. At this point, you could reach out to local attorneys to discuss. A landlord-tenant attorney would probably be in the best position to advise about eviction. In terms of the cars, you already included Criminal Law for...View More

A Nevada attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for four weeks. I'm sorry for your ordeal and the frustration in finding an attorney. It's no guarantee, but one option at this point could be to explore legal aid services or pro bono attorneys. Good luck
Please let me explain. I have lived in this apartment in Henderson, NV for a year now. Approx 10 months ago I was having breathing problems (only inside the apartment) and documented it. 5 months ago I figured out there was a natural gas leak and the gas company shut the gas off at that time. The... View More
A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Your question straddles two separate categories and I could only speak about the personal injury aspects. You mention that your breathing problems are documented. If you mean by medical records, those could be...View More

And now is selling all his stuff. There is no will, im an only child and he was never married so I should be in charge of his property, belongings, etc. yet the cops won't help me cuz of "squatters rights". I live in ID so it makes it difficult. I can't afford an attorney what am I supposed to do?
I have three dogs one is documented as my emotional support animal by my doctor of several years. Am I required to inform potential landlords that I have an ESA before I apply to be a tenant ? The rental property I am interested in has a two pet policy, although I have three dogs one is ESA.... View More
Probably not. There are a few limited exceptions to the Fair Housing Act but, unless one of the exceptions applies, the ESA is not considered a pet and therefore should not affect your ability to have two pets.
If you were my client I would advise you to tell the landlord up front that you...View More
My son's former Signifcant Other and he moved to Las Vegas with their children and leased an apartment together on May 1 to save money. My son has had to come to Oregon because of a family issue. In re-reading his lease agreement there are several areas where the document refers to California... View More
The agreement is likely worth less than the value of the paper upon which it was printed (or written in crayon - it does not sound like a very well thought out document). I would still be extremely careful in the way in which your son separates himself from this less than sophisticated landlord. I...View More
