Griffin Klema's answer Generally speaking, you hold the privilege (and thus the right) to keep information confidential, or to reveal it under the attorney-client privilege. Disclosing information that your attorney provided to you may not be in your best interest however, and I recommend you have another attorney review the information you want to disclose. As for pursuing your former lawyer for malpractice, those are difficult claims to prove, and you would need to start a new lawsuit against your lawyer separate...
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Let me get this straight: if you have legal malpractice insurance, I assume you are an attorney. And as an attorney you can't read the insurance policy as well as some anonymous person online, who doesn't even the policy to read?
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Be sure that the lawyer has agreed to file suit in your behalf. Do you have a written retainer agreement providing that the attorney will do so? If not, find another attorney who agrees, in writing, to file the case before the specified date.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Generally, an attorney can always quit, unless perhaps it's on the eve of trial, or some other circumstances apply so that you would be prejudiced by his sudden departure.
Jonathan A. Klurfeld's answer Generally, a notice of hearing is supposed to state what is being heard, just the title of the motion; unless the court set it and it is a case management/status conference with no specific item being heard.
You need to reach out to the county for each hearing you need assistance at per the below.
for Citrus County:
AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT. If you are a person with a disability who needs any accommodation in
Settlement disbursement timing always depends on the circumstances. If there are liens (e.g. Medicare, Medicaid, private health insurance, etc.) or health provider balances (e.g. doctor(s), hospital, etc.) you want the attorney to pay, then all of these always add time because the liens and bills have to be negotiated and paid before money is paid to the client.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer You could contest the suspension of your license, but before anything else is done I expect that the case number on the order will be corrected. If you are charged with driving with a suspended license, the charges will stick, in my opinion. You received a copy of the order and knew about it. So yes, the order is valid.
Jonathan A. Klurfeld's answer Highly highly unlikely. Mr G could have made his contract to buy contingent upon selling his home; or purchased after the selling closing. There was no literal gun to Mr G's head. Closings fall through all of the time and are not actionable beyond the deposit contemplate by the contract. Further, Mr G likely has no quantifiable damages yet as he still owns the home he wants to sell and hypothetically the value could go up $10k next month, or a bidding war of buyers who want the house, and...
Jonathan A. Klurfeld's answer Sue the tenants. The agent is irrelevant and is not the police and cannot be there 24/7 to make sure the tenants take care of your property. A property can be destroyed in mere hours, and it would be unreasonable fro landlord/tenant law to even check in weekly on the property condition inside; far more time that it would take to destroy it.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer You have file a lawsuit with the same civil claims department? Yes, you should consider asking for a change of venue, or that a judge from another county be assigned to your case.
