Terrence H Thorgaard's answer It depends. If the suit is filed in Florida, the lawyer must be admitted to practice law in Florida. If it's filed in your home state, the lawyer would have to be admitted to practice in your home state.
It's not clear which possible suit you are asking about: the breach of contract or the defamation. Of course one could be a counter-claim to the other.
Peter Munsing's answer I'm sorry to hear that you had to go through this. You have a case but.....the problem is that homeowners won't cover intentional acts, and if there is no insurance unless he's worth a lot of money you will get a piece of paper saying you are entitled to money--but he won't be able to pay it. The only plus is that as intentional acts they aren't dischargeable in bankruptcy.
I know that's not at all "justice" but it's like being mugged by a wino--you have a case but after spending...
F. Paul Maloof's answer Rather than suing for emotional harassment, which may require your physiatrist's testimony to prove your claim, you would be better served to go to the Court and apply for a "protective order" based on harassment.
I do not handle domestic cases, especially with regard to cats. Sorry.
Timur Akpinar's answer You could contact the State Bar of California, which has an attorney referral service. You could check with them if they are able to identify attorneys under these attributes. If you are able to conduct independent searches on your own (you mention the difficulty of doing this) or with the assistance of someone else, you could attempt searching for attorneys who have configured their operations to accommodate communication and other online accessibility issues. This is an area which is seeing...
Howard Lesnik's answer And out of state attorney can file a motion to be admitted to a different jurisdiction if they have a local attorney to support their admission into the case. All motions are posted online, and you should be provided with a hard copy of it by mail.
Courtney Edwards' answer Unless what the new station published was false and they knew it was false or were completely reckless with regard to the truthfulness of the report, no, you cannot sue. That is public information and the press is protected by the First Amendment.
Peter Munsing's answer If they leave it up it can be viewed as a continuing libel. Get an attorney to write a cease and desist letter on your behalf and also to ask the services involved to take the materials down.
Arthur Calderon's answer You always have the ability and the right to defend yourself; however, federal court is much different than state court, in that there are much more procedural rules and things that you must be aware of.
Arthur Calderon's answer You may be able to; however, it will depend on when you were injured, the type of employer, and whether the employer had worker's compensation coverage. I would strongly encourage you to reach out to an attorney ASAP, as there is only a set amount of time to initiate an action. Feel free to reach out to an attorney on here by clicking the contact information next to their name. Most lawyers, including myself, offer a free consultation to see how we can help you out.

Doak Willis' answer If your employer does drug testing and makes it mandatory for all employees I don't see any problem of discrimination. If you were singled out there might be a case but other factors would still come into play. Since its supposed to be by blind pick, I would say that is fair. Have a talk with the employee who made that statement and ask nicely that he/she not joke about drugs in the workplace.

Kevin M Rogers' answer Nope. Your conviction, your testimony etc. are public record. The trial itself is public record. If the newspaper promised you that they would keep your name out of their paper and did not, then you have an action for breach of contract against the newspaper. Did social media publish anything untrue about you? Truth is thE defense against slander and libel. If a private person published untruths about you on social media, THAT is actionable.
Andrew L. Bennett's answer It sounds like someone needs to talk to an attorney about defamation lawsuit. No guarantee it will be successful, but the person won't know until they talk to someone who is familiar with that area of law.
