This is fraud; it is a crime, a case you can sue on, and the lawyer could lose his or her license to practice law.

You will need to consult a medical malpractice attorney for an assessment of your case. Medical malpractice cases are complicated and fact intensive.
I was tricked into paying legal fees that were never owed and given directly to my ex-husband by his attorney. I have text messages proving this was done to me. Do i have any legal ground? What category does this fall under?

While both of you are at fault (your signing them without making sure they were accurate and complete; your attorney neglecting to attach your tax return, and overlooking other mistakes in the schedules), the attorney is probably right by advising you that it's not important. As you have... Read more »

to deed it back over to my name only, dissolve the LLC , and ask the court to remove the LLC from the foreclosure case. Can I do this ?
answered on Mar 10, 2022
You can do the first two but the court is not likely going to remove the LLC from the case because it had an interest in the property at the time of the foreclosure and that interest needs to be foreclosed.

The case was litigated for a year and the Plaintiff withdrew the case without prejudice. Now the plaintiff would like to reopen the case. Is that possible? I am not sure about the timeline for permanent closure or continued litigation in a case of this style.

Assuming that the pertinent statute of limitation period has expired, re-filing the case would be time-barred.

My dog was given a medication at 20mg dosage when it should have been 2.5mg. As a result of the wrong dosage and previous health issues she is now having acute kidney disease and may need to be euthanized. How do I go about pursuing legal action against the animal hospital involved?
answered on Aug 6, 2021
Most dogs don't have a market value of very much. Unlike people, you wouldn't be able to sue for "wrongful death". So you would sue in small claims court for the vet bill for the negligent procedure, as well as the cost of having the dog euthanized. That's about it.
