Text messages are a bit different. I suggest you have an attorney. The calls and texts raise... Read more »

At your initial appearance before a judge, the judge is required to appoint a lawyer for you if a conviction for the offense you are charged with would probably result in confinement and if you are shown to be indigent (i.e. unable to hire your own counsel). See Missouri Supreme Court Rule... Read more »

Look outside your local area to lawyers licensed to practice in Missouri federal courts who practice in the area of civil rights.
Increasing how much you are willing to pay for a lawyer’s services makes it more likely you will be able to find a lawyer who is willing to work for you.

Missouri is an employment-at-will state. With limited exceptions, an employer may terminate an employee at will and doesn’t need to be fair.

I quit in April 2021, he said he was going to come get the building. It is now November 2021 and he sold it to someone. Can I send him an invoice for rent since her kept his building on my property?
answered on Dec 1, 2021
You can certainly send an invoice, but unless you had an agreement for the payment of rent you are not going to be able to sue for breach of lease or contract. Research Missouri's abandoned property statute.
If i have a civil judgement, but the loan is strictly in my wifes name, but being married my name is on the deed, will that judgement money be taking out of the sale of the house?
answered on Nov 16, 2021
To see if the judgment has been filed as a lien against your house, you can ask a title company to run a property profile or a preliminary title search on your home. That will reveal if the lien has been filed. If so, and the house is in both your name and your wife's, it is likely the lien... Read more »

There was two case numbers, one number apart from each other. The case the verdicts were issued on is the case that was dismissed
answered on Oct 6, 2021
It means that you are missing something. Juries do not decide dismissed claims. It wouldn’t make sense for a jury to issue a verdict on a dismissed claim.

1. What is your goal?
2. How much will it cost to sue?
3. What are your chances of prevailing?
4. What damages would you be awarded if you win,
5. Does the IL statute have a provision entitling you to... Read more »

It depends on what you want him to do. You can ask him to leave. If he refuses, you can sue to eject him.

See about reaching out to the court to see if it was a clerical issue. If not, I would speak with an attorney about your case.

You've not provided any facts so there's no way to determine whether you are entitled to a return of your security deposit. If you are looking to terminate your lease before the agreed-up term expires, then it is unrealistic to believe that your landlord will simple agree to a mutual... Read more »
