It sounds as if you may have claims for reduced rent value, possibly mold damages as well. If desired, with written notice to the landlord, you may have rights to move to alternative housing at the landlord's expense above your rent. Consider reviewing everything with a landlord-tenant attorney.

You can always fire your attorney. However, you may still have to pay them, which can make it difficult to find a new attorney.

At this point, one option is to reach out to law firms to see if it's possible to set up a free initial consult to briefly discuss. In addition to your own attorney searches, you... Read more »

If that is their policy limits, it is probably reasonable. However, before you accept policy limits you need permission from your own insurance company to accept. Otherwise, you will not have access to your underinsured motorist policy. If you have an Oregon policy, you likely have underinsured... Read more »
