How Can We Call A Person That Finds Land For Developers & Gets Paid A Finder Fee?
This Person Doesn'T Have A Real Estate License An Does This For A Living.
That person is breaking the law. He must be a principal. He won't be doing this long. He must have a license.
If someone calls the state Real Estate Commission and tells them about this I suspect they will call the Attorney General.
Is There A New Law About Settlements For Medicare Recipients?
I Am On Disability From A Car Accident In 03 Where I Had A Brain Injury And Surgery. Last Yr I Gave Birth To My Son. When He Was 6 Wks Old I Was Sideswipped By A Truck. I Had Whiplash And Was In Alot Of Pain For Months. It Was Hard Caring For My Son, Because The Lifting And Carrying Him Put Strain On My Neck.
I Gat A Lawyer To Help Me With The Accident And A Small Settlement. I Just Called Them, And Was Told That There'S A New Medicare Law That Says If I Get Any Settlement Over 1,000 I Won'T Be Able To Get Medicare Anymore. Is That True? I Called Medicare And The Woman Talked With Her Superviser, And Said They Never Heard Of It. Now I'M Worried. I'D Like A Settlement Over 1000 To Cover Medical Expenses, My Lawyer Fees And Pain And Suffering. But I Don'T Want To Lose My Insurance.
Has Anyone Else Heard Of This Law? Where Can I Find It?
You spoke to the proper authorities and they gave you an answer.
It sounds to me like your lawyer would like to to give them the money in excess of a thousand dollars.
I don't trust your lawyer. Your injury is worth much more than a thousand dollars. If I were you I'd contact the Bar Association and ask them if what your lawyer told you is legal.
This smells to high heaven.
Medicare is for those over sixty five, if you have a young son, you aren't over 65, did you call Medicare, or Medicaid, because Medicaid is the proper office. The rules for Medicaid are income based, they would be different than Medicare, and you may need to make another call.
Which Do You Recommend To Resolve Business Disputes: Litigation, Arbitration Or Mediation?
As A Small Business Owner, I'M Trying To Be Proactive To Reduce Risk. I'Ve Been Thinking About My Contracts With Clients. Since We Live In A Overly Litigious Society, There'S Always The Chance Of Being Sued.
So I'M Thinking Of Adding A Clause To My Standard Contract For New Clients That If Some Sort Of Dispute Occurs, We Resolve It Amicably. I'Ve Spoken To My Lawyer. But I'D Like Additional Points Of View.
What Do You Currently Include With Your Business Contracts?
What Would You Recommend?
Mediation - Mediator Helps Parties Arrive At An Agreement
Arbitration - More Decisive Judgement.
Litigation - Take It To Court.
Thanks In Advance!
Full disclosure: I am a divorce mediator in New Jersey so I'm figuring you'll guess which option I'd go for and you'd be right. Often times the cost to resolve the dispute in court is far greater than the dispute itself and therefore I'd always encourage the parties to engage the services of a neutral third party mediator to help them try and resolve it.
The good news is mediation is a voluntary process and therefore, if it doesn't work out, you both retain your right to escalate it to a more adversarial process such as litigation (even though you REALLY don't want to) so what I'd suggest is a clause that says something like (THIS IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE SO BE SURE TO REVIEW THIS WITH YOUR ATTORNEY):
We agree that any dispute between you and me arising from this relationship, except for the collection of fees, will be submitted to mediation and, if no resolution is reached, to binding arbitration. By agreeing to binding arbitration, you and I are giving up our right to go to court. Both mediation and arbitration shall be by a neutral third party agreed to by you and me. We further agree that any costs of mediation and arbitration shall be shared equally by us.
This way you try to work it out and if you can't, there is an escalation path that doesn't involve litigating as there's simply no reason to do so as a small business owner since the cost to recover your fees, will probably be higher than the amount in dispute itself. In my experience most issues aren't about the money but rather the emotional underpinnings of something totally unrelated so if you can clear the emotional air (and mediation is great for that) chances are you can resolve the dispute amicably.
?'S To Ask A Lawyer About How Long Then Been Practicing And How Many Cases They Done Of My Mind Abd Track Rec
Will They Be Offended. I Have This Lady That Is A Public Defender
Ask away. She shouldn't be offended.
You are basically wasting your time though because the answers are meaningless to you. She can tell you anything & you won't know the difference. Years in practice is not the same as quality. A crappy attorney who has practiced for 20 years is still a crappy attorney--- just an old crappy attorney. And you might as well reconcile yourself to the fact that a public defender is not going to be a particularly good attorney. A sharp lawyer can do a lot better than the PD's office anywhere in the country. PDs are mostly overworked and mediocre at best. On the bright side, at least she is free!! And to balance things out, most prosecutors are also overworked and mediocre so at least the other side can't too much advantage of you.
The best source of information about the attorney would be other & former clients. Try talking to some other criminals she has represented & ask whether they feel she did her best to help them.
Is A Self Written Will Legal?
If I Make Out A Will On My Own And Sign It, Maybe With Two Other Signatures, Do I Have To Register It With The Local County And Is What I Write Down In The Document As To What Items I Want To Go Where, A Legal Document In Itself?
Yes and no.
Half the states in the US recognize a holographic will. A holographic will is a will you have written in your own handwriting. If you are in one of the states that permits a holographic will, then writing out the will in your own hand will make for a valid legal will.
If you are in a state that does not permit holographic wills you will need to have an attorney draw up your will. In addition you must have a certain number of witnesses (as defined in the trusts and estate laws of your state) as well as certification by a notary public.
Legal zoom is not helpful for states who do not permit holographic wills as they will not necessarily have the requisite number of witnesses and certification.
In addition, if you are giving property to someone in your will, it would probably be best to have your attorney file it with the county clerk and recorder as it essentially gives someone a property interest in your land.
If at all possible, seek out legal counsel. If you cannot afford legal counsel, seek out your local law school, they may have resources available to those who cannot afford it.
