He served his sentence and got put in mental facility because he’s a serial offender and was still a risk to society. I was never told he was released and he’s been seen around my home town and now I’m afraid and traumatized all over again because he came back to the place where this all... Read more »
The short answer is 'no' - your personal injury settlement is not exempt from garnishment or money judgment. There may be a way to shield that money from creditors but it would require a more personalized answer. Please feel free to contact our firm at www.RosenbergFirm.com
They are there to protect you so there isn't much you can do. However, if you have proof that they tapped your phone without a court order that can be reported to the police as that is a crime. In addition you can get a lawyer to sue on your behalf to stop all phone intercepts.
Our dog died a sudden, senseless, and tragic death at the hands of a negligent veterinarian. We are aware that the veterinarian violated standards of case for several reasons. We have a necropsy report, toxicology report, and an expert witness veterinarian opinion letter. This not about money - it... Read more »
I’m cautious whenever people say its “not about money” because the reality is that an attorney’s time is their stock in trade, and time is money. There is small claims court for folks with initiative but without money, and if you get the Judgment it vindicates you!! But if you want a...Read more »

I couldn't fully type the question above but I want to know if the hairdresser is liable if the actual color causes hair damage or personal injury (not coronavirus). Can we have them sign a waiver that would exempt us from being held liable?

It does not seem like something that would expressly be spelled out in any statute or code. But you should still research and check municipal codes and ordinances (including those written by FDNY) to be certain. If after diligently checking, you find no such provisions, you could consider including...Read more »
All the local agencies and state agencies knew of impending weather, but there were no salt trucks out. On this one section of highway there 8 vehicles that had slid of or had some kind of accident. How do I put a claim in against NYS for the highway not being properly maintained.
That's a State road, so you would have to file a "notice of intention to file a claim" or else a "claim" against the State of New York within 90 days of the accident. If you are late filing, it is a problem, but the problem can probably be overcome if too much time does...Read more »
