Peter Munsing's answer What you want is an attorney on retainer. That means you pay him an up front fee and he will provide advice billed on an hourly basis. You need to figure out what the concerns you have are for which you need an attorney--criminal cases require criminal defense attorneys; land issues require someone who concentrates in that area. A small firm may be better for you. They should be attorneys in the counties where you expect to run into issues.
Linda Simmons Campbell's answer It sounds like you were charged a failure to file penalty. Sometimes the IRS will abate the penalties once you have filed the required returns. I suggest filing a penalty abatement request. If that does not bring the debt down to an amount you can afford then you can try and submit an Offer in Compromise. The IRS has an Offer in Compromises tool on their website that you can use to see if you might be eligible.
Did your employer formally laid-off your job due to lack of work? If so, did you receive a letter of termination notifying you of their decision incl. your work experience, last salary drawn; termination/withdrawal of non-compete condition specific to this employer, etc. If yes, then you will be free to join or work for a similar job. If they did not bother for that, you may qualify for unemployment allowances!!
Eric E Holm's answer There may be an answer for this in the local city ordinances, you could try researching this online at the city's website containing the Billings City Code (google "Billings City Code") or hiring a local attorney to research this for you.
Salim U. Shaikh's answer Please elaborate your question for specific advice. Your question does not sufficiently explain what you want to know. You may have a case if direct family relation has a bar or ineligibility in their rules.
Will Blackton's answer Short phrases and names are generally not protected by copyright law. What you're probably thinking of is trademark infringement - the key question being, will your name confuse consumers, that is, might consumers believe that your company is affiliated with or endorsed by E. B. White, Harper & Brothers, Hanna-Barbera Productions, Universal, or any of the other entities involved with a production of Charlotte's Web who may retain rights in that name.
Peter Munsing's answer Go after both. Get the police report. Be prepared to show you didn't give permission for a relend as to the actual driver, so it's on driver #1, and that #2 was driving carelessly. Either way they both owe you. If they offer to pay get a judgment note, and especially get copy of their drivers licence, SS#, proof of addresses so if you have to chase them you can track them.
Benton R Patterson III's answer Given the industry is the same and the similarity of the names, there is a fair chance it could be rejected. However, a trademark attorney would need to review each registration and know more about each business to give a definitive answer. The type of registration also matters, eg. is it a standard character mark or stylized design. I recommend consulting a trademark attorney.
Salim U. Shaikh's answer Your employer may have adopted/followed rules against Harassment or Hostile Work environment wherein you can find procedures that deal with such situation. All those who are concerned or affected by his abusive tone may write down (if not individual) a joint petition to your head of office suggesting to control hostile work environment as a result of abusive tone and style of general manager. Such a move duly signed by all would be equally good as of recording.
Peter Munsing's answer Contact a member of the Montana Trial Lawyers Assn. Generally, courts don't favor emotional issues. On a personal level suggest you look into a form of therapy called EMDR for your kids. They may be old enough now or in a year or so. Google : Psychology Today EMDR ___________________(name of nearest city ) Montana
That should turn up any therapists that do it in your state.
Peter Munsing's answer You might, but as they have little money or they wouldn't be section 8 you won't get it from them. Suggest you look at if there is a grievance procedure--contact your local legal services/legal aid office.
Peter Munsing's answer Sounds like suboptimal care but given his compromised condition it wold be difficult to show that the errors were outside the boundaries of the normal standard of care. I suggest you contact a member of the Montana Assn for Justice--they give free consults.
