QUESTIONS

  • I retired in January of last year (2016). My former employer is using my photo in his yellow pages and internet advertising WITHOUT my permission. what type of attorney do I contact? I wish to sue for monetary damages if possible and to stop him from using my photo and name in these ads. I gave him over 20 years of full time service, and the first time I actually took my full vacation time (3 weeks), he called me (during week 2)and told me he only wants to use me part time after my vacation was up.
  • My son is a college student, he has never been in trouble (age 19 soon to be 20). He was arrested for a misdemeanor for minor in consumption, and giving false information to officer (lied about his name shortly after came clean). Do we need to retain an attorney to get this cases expunged or set aside?
  • Can the county foreclose on my condo due to non-payment of RE taxes?
  • I recently went to a lab to have my annual labs drawn. I have been to this lab multiple times in the past few years. This last time, I was taken aside and presented with a bill for $ 980. dollars. from 2011 like 7 years ago. I have lived in my home for 24 years and I was never sent a bill for any labs costs. I did have health insurance at the time which should have covered it. What is the statute of limitations on medical bills?
  • Can't locate any low income or pro bono attorneys can someone please help ne locate phone numbers? Criminal felony charges pending sitting in jail now
  • My landlord sent a 5 day notice for Mays rent due on the 14th but I have a 3 day grace period. He put on the notice that I still owe $215 from April's rent which is not correct because I paid it. He admitted over the phone that the $215 was a mistake. Should I now make him send a corrected 5 day notice. I'm scared if I only pay May's rent he can still screw me over since the 5 day notice says I owe another $215.
  • My daughter is 16 years old & is mentally handicapped. I want to get guardianship. What do I need to do first?
  • Is there a free car service for seniors to get Doctors appointment and back home.
  • My stepson just passed away at the age of 33. He had sole legal and physical custody of his children, ages 4 and 5. He was never married and the mother of the children has only supervised visits at his discretion. She is currently involved with DCS and has been for almost 3 years. We have filed for permanent custody. Because my husband had sole custody would he have had automatic custody of the kids? They have lived with us for 3 years with their father. We also had guardianship of the kids for a year before father retained sole custody
