I'm sorry for this terrible experience, given your disabled condition. A California attorney could advise best but your question remains open for four weeks. If you have medical documentation of the sickness/injury you suffered here, such as ER visit or doctor examination, gather them and see if...Read more »

A typical unlawful detainer case is between landlord and tenant...Read more »

I used a credit card that is no longer active to make a purchase. Some time later I needed to return the item and contacted Amazon to see if I could have my refund routed to another car. They proposed to send the money (1.300.00) to a gift card.
I asked for them to guarantee it would not be... Read more »
Small Claims is a good option for a $1,300 claim. Or you could contact the credit card company to find out what it can do about the money that was refunded to your card that is "not active". Unclear what that means, by the way. Is it a card you don't use, or a card that you formally closed the...Read more »

An unsigned deed does not convey legal title to property and does not qualify as a Will. A probate will be required to convey title from grandmother to her heirs at law, typically her children and quite possibly her son. Since her son does not have title to the property, he cannot evict a tenant...Read more »
I did pay him cash so I feel like it would be hard to sue him. I originally paid him 1,5000 about 6 months ago. I want to take my truck and money back but he seems reluctant to even talk about the situation.
Sure; in America anyone can sue anyone else at any time—even without a lawyer in small claims court. Winning the lawsuit is another matter. If you decide to sue you should be prepared to pay the filing fee and then pay another hundred bucks or so for service of process. Caveat: If a court of law...Read more »

I am an independent contractor for a MO based company but I live in Los Angeles, Ca. They have not paid my wages /invoices and have written several bad checks to cover the amount owed. I would like to sue them for my back pay and am questioning which state to file the case in and if out of... Read more »
If California law applied to your situation, it is unlikely you are actually an independent contractor unless you worked for multiple companies at the same time and were free from control of the employer in carrying out your duties. That would also give you access to many of the very good...Read more »
I loaned him an amount in expectation of getting a monthly payment after his business got off the ground. The month came to when we agreed he had to start paying it back with interest and he never did. Can I sue him for the principal investment plus the interest we agreed upon? Also I have the...

Unfortunately, without a signed agreement it is more difficult to convince a person to pay back money he or she owes you. The emails help somewhat, as that confirms that an agreement was reached, even if it was not signed. Also, the mere fact that he acknowledges the debt is helpful. I would...Read more »
If you signed a written contract with Bannerbit Online Advertising get it out and read it very closely. If the contract says they can do what they did to you, then you are done. If you do not have a written contract then you are also done.

contact a personal injury lawyer with a summary of all the facts.
normally a parent would not be responsible for an adult child but maybe if mom had a conservatorship? she might be........then there is the issue of why you were in the home knowing of these violent tendencies?
Your question is somewhat confusing, but I will try to sort it out. I am assuming that you are looking for a lawyer to oppose a conservatorship (or a conservatorship proceeding). If the person in question still has his/her faculties, and does not appear to need a conservatorship, then it would...Read more »
