Unless you sue the deadbeat client and receive a Judgment, collecting all the money they owe you is nearly impossible--especially without competent counsel to help you. Look for a good lawyer using the Find a Lawyer tab at the top of every page.

Pennsylvania is one of twelve states that upholds two-party consent for communications recording. To secretly record a conversation with consent from only one party in Pennsylvania is therefore illegal.

Sorry.

Q: What are the guidelines for the amount on a bond for criminal trespassing?

Someone was arrested for criminal trespassing in two different counties, one bond was $2500 in one county & the other bond was $5000 in the other county, I'm trying to find out the price range for this charge

Anthony M. Avery answered on Jun 20, 2019

Maybe General Sessions Judges and Magistrates talk among themselves, but you are not going to find an official guideline to Bond amounts. Both of those are higher bonds than most, so apparently the Defendant is viewed as a major burglar. His lawyer might move to lower the amounts in each County,... Read more »

Sounds like you may have to sue them, which of course could cost way more than the $5500 you are out.

Maybe small claims is your best bet, it's quick, easy and for matters under 10K wherein attorneys are not

allowed at all, well, other than to represent an LLC or a CORP.

Q: The college admissions scandal. How is it a crime to bribe a coach at a private college to gain admission?

My understanding is that one of the elements is that it must involve a public official or someone who has a "legal duty". "Public official" is not at issue here.

Q: What if somebody stole my trust fund and they was my beneficiary

Marc David Pelta answered on Mar 30, 2019

Make a police report and you may have to hire an attorney to represent you. In some instances, one way is to call your local bar association and ask to be referred to an attorney referral service. You may need to hire an attorney experienced in civil law, specifically probate.
