I am using an online form software to have customers sign COVID19 declarations (i.e. affirm they exhibit no symptoms). The form supports signatures, names, and other relevant information for a legally binding contract. The form the customers fill out has the contract outlined in it.... Read more »
It would be unwise for you to do anything to manipulate a signature from someone else. Your problem is both a legal one and technical one. You need a better online document.

Sorry your product did not meet your expectations. This is a consumer/contract law question and the supplier failed to provide the product you contracted for. It sounds like you bought this online, so you must have paid with a CC. You should contact your CC company and create a dispute over the...Read more »
Yes, of course, a contract formation attorney can draft you such an agreement. IMO the real question is why do they want your customer information and invoices? And a probable answer is that they want to go around you and deal direct with your clients. Steal your clients from you. And once that...Read more »
Typical Attorney Answer: It depends. It depends on the amount of money involved. It depends on what terms you want re: security, repayment, interest. It depends on how much you trust the other person- the more you trust, the longer the agreement should be. You can find simple promissory notes...Read more »

It depends. I have sued a property owner for damage caused by its contractor. But it's unlikely that respondeat superior will apply. A principal can instead be held liable based on its own negligence in hiring, instructing, equipping, or directing the contractor.

So sorry to hear about this. The value of the rental directly corresponds to the quality of the Rental, and it sounds like the condition has seriously negatively affected the quality. A rental comes with a "Warranty of Habitability" and if the LANDLORD breaches that warranty, your...Read more »
I paid in full cash in March and it was supposed to be picked up my mid March but then everything closed, they now want me to pick it up but prom is over and I was supposed to receive it months ago. How do I get my refund.

Take possession of the dress to use at a later date, or so you can sell it to someone who can later make...Read more »

Someone else has the company name I want but, they haven't been active since 2014 I believe. They don't have it trademarked i looked them up on the government trademark site and other sites they don't come up. Is it possible i can trademark the name and use it for my company?

Under the common law, if you use a mark as a mark, you can acquire trademark rights in that mark. You would need to investigate further about whether the other person has...Read more »
