Your question is a little unclear. I have several questions. Are you suing for an intentional tort? What tort? Is "he" the defendant? When was the harassment in relationship to the timing of the intentional tort? Who was harassed? Were the circumstances in any way similar to the intentional...Read more »
This is something that an attorney who practices in Puerto Rico would know better than a New York attorney. You could repost under Puerto Rico (look for the link for other states), and one of the attorneys in that section could have better chances of seeing your question. Good luck
You could check with the Legal Aid Society. If the collection defense help you need is not within their scope of assistance, ask them if they have recommendations for other resources. Additionally, you could contact a bankruptcy attorney to learn more about your rights in that regard. Many offer...Read more »
I am three months over due in my loans. My mom and I are members of the same credit union. She is not however, a cosigner on any of those loans. They took $500 out of her account to pay it. Upon calling about it, they stated I gave them permission. I most certainly did not, not even close! My mom... Read more »

Common examples include return of an engagement ring, a house, a car, a fur coat, etc. The court will direct the fiance to...Read more »
An employment lawyer would carefully review your employee handbook before advising you. This could be completed remotely. You would call and discuss more details, you and the lawyer would agree to a flat fee for such review and legal advice regarding options, and everything including payment and...Read more »
I am Italian but I have a curiosity about American law: In Italy, when someone is the person damaged by the crime who intends to assert his claim for compensation or restitution before the criminal judge, he becomes a civil party. How does it work in America?
Your question bridges two areas of practice under U.S. law. You ask about restitution. That is a remedy provided for under criminal law, where the criminal must pay the victim for losses they caused (medical expenses, lost wages, property losses, and others). There are also crime victim...Read more »

Greetings. This is a service contract dispute. The dispute will be governed by the contract. You need a lawyer to review the contract and determine your rights and remedies.

I was wrongfully placed in injuction unable to even respond, however I feel as if the judge disagrees with the extreme financial inequality, and perhaps waiting for me to either respond or at least give my side, and truthfulness of the matter.
A trust was created for my benefit earlier this summer. A promissory note was given in trust to the trustees to be invested and utilized for specific purposes. The note transferred to the trustees is still currently in their possession. They have not performed the trust nor accounted as required... Read more »
A trustee has the duty to protect, collect and maximize the value of trust assets for the benefit of the beneficiaries, and intentionally destroying a trust asset would presumptively be a violation of that duty. However, it is possible that the note truly was uncollectible and it would cost the...Read more »
He claims he mailed papers but I have not received them. Tonight he was supposed to serve papers, he claimed they were the second round. He wanted to bring them to me at 8pm on a Thursday night. I work 7am-4pm and I do not get home until 530 with picking my daughter up from daycare. He has not... Read more »
You obviously know about the case. While the court will undo any defaults, etc., from lack of service, you should ask for the papers again, or go to the clerk to get them, and not ignore this. Playing the service issue might work, but also might not.
It is very hard to do a pro se case in Supreme Court, especially a complex commercial case. I am not even sure you commenced the case correctly, but if you did, they can move to dismiss without answering in the time to answer (which is counted differently depending on how service was made), or...Read more »

It sounds like you both potentially can claim ownership. However, based upon what you indicated, you probably have a stronger claim. The two of you can agree who is the true owner through a written agreement. If not, the Courts may have to decide for you if there is a dispute in the future.
