Terrible neighbor who harasses us - we don't want to help him if we don't have to. The fence is paid for 100% by us. We don't want to allow a gate on his property to be attached to a fence we paid a lot of money for because he called in a code violation on our previous fence being unsightly.
I originally loaned him the money so he would not have to finance it and pay the extra cost. He knew I would have issues with him paying me back and I told him it was a gift. Now we are broke up and I asked him for at least part and he so no, you gave it to me. Do I have any recourse?

The statute of limitations doesn't change, but you should ask the defense counsel to agree to a change in the trial date. Defense attorneys are usually happy to delay proceedings. If not, the Court is usually pretty understanding. Just make sure you haven't passed the deadline for... Read more »
I've checked attorney matching websites w no success No personal injury involved
answered on Jan 20, 2023
Well, depending on the specifics of the claim, there might only be 2 "property damage" firms in all of Washington. I don't believe either is on any of the attorney matching sites. I'd google "property damage attorney Washington" and look at the first organic result.
I want to find a list that I can review so I can be aware of my rights and what to abide by, but I don't know where to find one.

A Washington attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. It may be difficult to find every law and right compiled in a single location. There are different levels of law (fed, state, local, etc.) and many areas of legal practice. This usually requires going to... Read more »
My daughter is in middle school in Washington state. She went to school today wearing some wedged boots forgetting that today was PE. When she entered the gym both teachers surrounded her and belittled her. They also made her hold her hand out and slapped the back of her hand. Do I have any... Read more »

I know a lawyer won't charge me up front I just want to get an idea of how much he would take when I win my case. Thank you

The standard fee for personal injury cases, including sex abuse cases, is 1/3 of the total recovery plus costs advanced. If the matter goes to litigation, the fee goes up to 40% plus costs advanced.
I commend your bravery in coming forward to get some justice. I wish you the best.

For years, then turned over to the Dept of Revenue in Sept of 2020. There's a judgment filed by Chase bank with 0 balance. How do I get my money released to me.
answered on Mar 14, 2022
You will need to contact an attorney who is familiar with this process, someone who can review the status of your claim and petition for release of these funds from the court registry. Through this process, judgment creditors of record (if any) will be notified, after which the funds can be... Read more »

Usually either party can proffer their own version of a proposed judgment. The Judge does not have to use it, but may sign it, especially if there is no opposition from the other side. Sometimes the Judge announces he will draft and enter his own Judgment. Rule 59 Motions can be made to alter... Read more »
I was served papers at an address that I have not lived at for 4 years and I just by chance was given them by the current tenant. There is no case number on the papers and the debt has already been paid. How do I respond to these papers with no case number?
answered on Oct 25, 2021
This is a great question.
In short: you should reach out to the attorney whose address is noted in the paperwork, and send them proof the debt is paid. If it is, that will be the end of it. If the debt isn't actually paid, you should draft and file an answer to the complaint. There are... Read more »

I have an unpaid judgement against me due to uninsured accident. My license has been suspended for 13 years. Shouldn't the suspension period be 10 years?
answered on Sep 21, 2020
The judgment that suspended you may expire after 10 (or it can be renewed). But even if it expires, the license remains suspended until reinstated. It's possible that you are eligible to reinstate, but of course there can be multiple reasons that a license is suspended; while one expires,... Read more »
I sold car to my neighbor two days prior to him crashing it....but the title was never changed...theres a police report saying he was driving
answered on Aug 23, 2020
A Washington attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It could depend on who the legal owner of the car was at the time of the accident. It could hinge on proof in the form of documents for the sale of the vehicle. Good luck
