Justice system( court houses) and All day towing. Is there any way that you guys can help me find a pro bono attorney that is willing to fight for me. I went to Legal Aid in Hayward courthouse and they told me they cannot help me because I have a big case
Contact the County Bar Association in your county and ask for their lawyer referral service to request they refer you to a lawyer who can assist you with your case. You may not find someone to help you pro bono, but if you have a good case you won't have too much trouble finding a good lawyer to...Read more »
You really should discuss this with an attorney who practices in California. As a general matter, a power of attorney could enable a person to appoint another to act on their behalf in some settings, but a lawsuit is something that can personally involve a party, in terms of giving testimony,...Read more »
The landlord is required to have a certain number of handicapped spaces depending upon the size of the parking lot. They are not required to allow a tenant to put their name or apartment number on the handicapped parking sign. In fact, if they do that it might cause them to be in violation of the...Read more »

The plaintiff did not provide a contract, its just word of mouth details. My father was a realtor and he negotiated a lease... Read more »
I don't know the details of your case, but when a plaintiff wins a small claims judgment you have 30 days from the date the judgment is entered into the court record to appeal the judge's decision. If the 30 days have not run, you should immediately file an appeal of the decision with the Court.

His surviving spouse would be entitled to all of the community property that they owned, or any joint tenancy held property. Since he had two children, you both would share 2/3 of his separate property and his surviving spouse would be entitled to 1/3 of his separate property. But if he was...Read more »
My husband found some bullets on his way to the post office but was pulled over on his bike for not stopping at a stop sign minutes after he found them. Because he is an ex-con, he was arrested and charged with possession of ammunition. The Public Pretender he has is not trying to help him at all.
For reference, it's Long Beach Municipal Code 10.18.040. Cops can't even write a ticket or arrest someone for it, because there's no code. So instead they just tell you to leave the city! I'd like to find out what the actual penalty is.

I’m not going to take the time for the historical research, but IIRC, California was surrendered to the US by Act of War from Spain at the end of the Spanish-American War. Nothing prior to the conquest counts at International Law unless the victor affirmatively adopts it. Often, the victor adopts...Read more »
I have submitted a petition to add a specific ordinance to the city code. While I am gathering signatures, can the city council pass an ordinance that is different from the one I am circulating? Are they restricted from doing anything except pass the proposed ordinance in the petition.
To get a definitive opinion, you will probably have to pay an attorney to research this for you. If you want to take a shot at it yourself, check the Marin County Code and any Fairfax ordinances. However, as with most neighbor disputes, you should try to come to some agreement. Try speaking with...Read more »
My tenant agreed to allow a person to park a small bus under the carport of the single family home she rents from me. The agreement was for $20.00 a month and things went smoothly for the last 6 months until my tenant noticed the van was being plugged into her elec. and her water was being used.... Read more »
You should retain the services of a lawyer experienced in landlord-tenant rights. Since the tenant made the deal with the owner of the bus to store the vehicle on property she rents, it is her responsibility to deal with her subtenant. However, if the tenant grants you authority to deal with the...Read more »
I recently received a civil citation for possession of alcohol on the beach in Huntington Beach CA. The fine associated with the ticket is $125. I was considering contesting due to financial hardship as I'm a recent graduate and still have $75k plus in student loan debt that I am actively paying... Read more »
If you can offer proof that the date of the ticket is the wrong day, i.e. some evidence of where you were at the same time on the day the ticket was dated, then you might have a good shot at getting a not guilty for the ticket. You'll have to contest it by appearing and pleading not guilty. Gather...Read more »

Recently, at 11pm, I had to find a parking spot in a packed neighborhood in LA. I found a parking spot in the area I outlined on the picture: http://i.imgur.com/RIDc0yE.jpg However, there was a sign saying that parking from 10pm to 6am was prohibited http://i.imgur.com/RjUz0Un.jpg Since there were...

No attorney that I am aware of handles parking tickets from a defense perspective. While I have done it for a city--rare experience--most parking tickets are not worth the effort to fight considering the cost of legal services compared to paying the ticket or the reward of winning.
Do I need a California Driver's License? I intend to go back to my permanent address in Canada. I did some research and found this website, but I wanted to confirm: http://www.getty.edu/osip/pdfs/driving_terms.pdf
Depends how temporary. In most states you can get by with an international drivers license but its 10 days after you become a california resident. You can always ask the Canadian consulate out there or the embassy in DC
