The court did order all fees (over $30k be refunded to me) but that still... Read more »
If a law firm forged your signature, then a complaint to the State Bar is warranted. It is possible that the law firm is responsible for your damages, i.e., what you lost as a direct result of the fraud. That would include the principal, interest, and potentially emotional distress. It does not...Read more »

If you sue your former attorney for legal malpractice, you would need to retain an...Read more »

They took me to GA court, which resulted in GA removing my child from their care, but GA put her in foster care. I did everything I... Read more »
You did not tell us how many years ago this happened to you, but I am guessing that is must have been more than 10 or 12. If so, the controlling statutes of limitation have expired and there is nothing you can do about it.
Practically speaking--if you still love YOUR child as much as it...Read more »
An out of state attorney who is female and unwilling to represent me. To expand on this misunderstood sentence, she tries to communicate with me in an akward sense, she is being charged. This is due to her not communicating with me only. It is impossibly horrible to expect 'good standing' in front... Read more »
I’ve been advised that the supervisor lied about my work/work ethic to keep me from getting the job and is also doing that or similar things to prevent others from leaving their jobs to go else where and told others he’d sandbag the ones trying to leave.

Tell your "friend" that he should break off all communication with his 15 year old girl friend before someone files a criminal charge against him. Claiming that the child "lied about her age" is not a defense against the crime of statutory rape in Florida. Tell your "friend" to look up the severe...Read more »
I'm unaware of it. The practice should have asked. He can file a complaint with the licensing board but I dont see anything. However he should contact a member of the State of Washington Trial Lawyers Assn/Assn for Justice--they give free consults.

You only have a certain period of time to file a return claiming a refund or else you forfeit the refund. It sounds like you filed a return too late to claim the refund and the state tax department is notifying you of that. There's nothing you can do about the refund. You may have recourse against...Read more »
