This is a complicated fact pattern, and you really should meet with a workers' compensation attorney in your area. From the limitted information available, you certainly appear to have a workers' compensation claim. You should know that taking the pension may reduce the amount you...View More
My father and mother can no longer taker care of it and want to transfer the deed to my siblings and self, can this be done if they are still living? We are looking to sell this property after transfer of deed. Will we encounter any other legal issues with this?
They can certainly transfer the property to family members. If they can’t care for themselves, a Power of Attorney would probably be advised so that you and siblings could act directly on their behalf.

Subdivision plan from 1956 shows a named paper road between my property and my neighbor to my right. It runs back into another property behind us. All deeds from 1956 to current, name the road on them as a boundary line with measurements of distance, utility right of way, etc. The property... View More
If your unfriendly neighbors have no other access to their property, then they'll almost certainly get to keep using that "paper road" as a means to reach their property. A court will not render a property virtually worthless and unusable by "landlocking" it, and would...View More
New tenant in the building is telling people who work in my office they are not allowed to stand in front of their office on the first floor. We have an awning on the building that protects from rain. I am not impeding the flow of traffic or talking to anyone. I work in the same building on a... View More
Depends on how the lease defines that space. If it's part of the public entrance, anyone can stand there. Your employer may want to suggest to the landlord some alternative or approach the business owner on the first floor.
You are charged with a felony of the third degree. Which means you could get up to 7 years in jail. There are defenses, and importantly the Commonwealth has to prove the case against you. Attorneys will be familiar with the charge against you, and all the players and potential outcomes....View More

There is an ordinance in the city of oil city which forbids any trick to be performed on a bicycle. This in essence would prevent any city resident from competing fairly in bicycle competitions. It would prohibit equal opportunity to practice and hone skills necessary to be competitive within the... View More
If it prohibited tricks on private property, likely yes.Contact the Pa. Civil Liberties Union. On public property--I don't see it being invalid unless it is used to cover non-pedestrian areas such as open spaces used by jugglers, dancers, others.

The answer to this question depends upon the county where you will be distributing the flyers. Even though you are not selling anything, the township may deem that handing out the flyers is a form of soliciting contributions, and there are townships that require permits for such an activity.
The code reads " It shall be unlawful for any person, firm, or corporation to keep, maintain, or own more than two dogs on any property or premises in the city of Monessen" does that mean each person in the home may own up to and including two dogs?
I'd read that as being two dogs per property. Now if you had a large rental property with numerous tenants that wouldn't make sense so I have to believe there may be some ancillary ruling on how it's interpreted. Why not talk to the local dog warden?
I am a home owner in a town that has a Shade Tree Commission. The commission prevents me from maintaining, removing, or planting trees in the strip of grass between the sidewalk and street in front of my property. Over the past 10 years I have invested in a retaining wall to beautify my property.... View More
The problem is to get around this you'd have to file some expensive and time consuming legal proceedings that would cost more than the sidewalk bill. If you want to repair the sidewalk you need to get the boro to clear it--and take care of any roots.

You have outlined most of the issues that a lawyer would need to review to answer your question. One other thing that may be important is whether the farmer did anything to artificially divert the water.

I had a few municipal liens on my home. I paid the court ordered judgement amounts via check. The checks were accepted but I received a letter saying I actually owe more than the lien through the courts and they will not close out the liens until I pay more. Is this legal? Are they required by law... View More
It sounds like they are telling you that you owe interest on the judgments, possibly penalties and/or court costs. That would be pretty typical.
