Need Help With Some Legal Advice?
I Have A Question. I Had An Apartment Since Sept 07 And Just Left Because I Found Out Im Pregnant And There Is No Heat In The Apartment. I Had To Use A Space Heater For A 2 Bedroom Apt, Well 2 Space Heaters. Let Me Tell You How Fun It Was Last Winter. Being Pregnant, I Knew I Could Not Deal Freezing.
I Found An Apt Nov. 1St, So I Left.
Here Is Where My Landlord Is Suing Me
$500 Unpaid Last Months Rent (Yes, Rent Is Cheap But Nowhere On The Lease Did It Say I Didnt Have Access To Heat)
$600 In Damage To 3 Rooms, A Lil Paint Spilled On The Floor While Painting The Water Damaged Walls. I Retiled The Floors And Made The Place Look So Much Better.
$1000 For A Gas Bill Which I Dont Understand How A Stove (The Only Gas Object In The House) Could Be 1000, Granted It Was For The Whole Time I Was There, Im Not Gonna Lie, But 1000? Think About That .Its Like 100/Month For A Stove I Used Very Few Times??? It's An In Law Apt And He Is The Owner That Never Stays There, Lives Mostly In Pa. I Feel Like Its Not Possible I Was Paying 1000 All Winter For Use Of A Stove Once A Week. Plus, I Didnt Know In Mass It's Illegal To Not Have An Apt Without Heating. So What Should I Do Here? Im Pregnant, Broke, Trying To Save Up For My Baby And Now He Is Suing Me For Like $2000.
Try legal aid, they may be able to help. Unfortunately, you should have complained about the lack of heat right away and there is very little compensation you could get out of it at this late date, since you put up with it for over a year.
The gas bill is interesting - is there anything besides the stove that uses gas? I would find out... maybe call the gas company and they can tell you if that amount makes sense.
As for damages, did you in any way document the apartment's condition on move-out versus move-in? Photos, inspection report? That is the only way to absolve yourself of damages they are claiming. You retiling the floors is irrelevant. It was an improvement you chose to make independently, and does not offset any damage they are claiming.
Is There Any Legal Assistance That Can Help Me In Providing An Attorney For A Criminal Defense In My Case?
I Have A Felony Charge Pending. I Would Like To Know If There Is Any
Assistance That I Can Look Into To Help Me In A Court Of Law In My Case. I Have A Limited Amount Of Money. I Really Need Some Input In This Situation. Thank You, Kathleen
For people with limited funds, the usual place to seek help is the Public Defender's Office. But they will have you fill out an application form that asks for you to disclose your income, assets, etc, to be used in determining if you are eligible for their services. If not, you will have few (good) options, and will have to seek a private attorney. Don't count on pro bono attorneys for criminal defense work.
Is A Lawyer Considered A Respectable Profession?
I Am A Senior In College. I Have A Solid Gpa. I Simply Don'T Know What To Do With Myself. I'Ve Forced Myself To Take A Year Off After I Graduate To Make Sure Whatever Decision I Make Is A Good One. I'Ve Thought About Going To Med School, But Honestly I Just Don'T Have The Time. It Would Take Another Year To Get The Pre-Reqs, Plus The Four Years Of School, And Three Years Of Residency...Blah... I'M Interested In Law. I'M Just Stuck In This Common Person'S View That Lawyers Are Looked Down Upon. You May Think That Prestige Is Not Something That Should Be Seriously Factored Into A Career Decision, But All Placement Tests Place Alot Of Weight On Whether Prestige Is Something You Want, And It Is. Money Isn'T All That Important. If I Have To Rack Up Alot Of Debt To Get The Degree, Then I Want Adequate Money To Pay It Off, That'S All. In The End, Is Law A Respectable Profession, Or Are They The Counterparts Of Doctors (The Evil Branch Of Intelligent Professionals)?
Just look at all of the silly responses you already have to your question. Everyone hates on lawyers--UNTIL they need one, of course!
The few cruddy and scummy lawyers and Hollywood movies taint the image of all lawyers. There are many areas of law you can go in to and fight for the rights of individuals and causes you believe in. You don't HAVE to sell your soul to a corporate company if you don't want to.
Of course law is a respectable profession--not everyone is cut out to do it, and you can do great things if you're a really good lawyer. Where would this country be without the lawyers who took civil rights cases to the Supreme Court? The lawyers who are fighting for the rights of people locked up indefinitely in US prisons? Since there are so many areas of law you can get in to, YOU can decide if you will make your career "respectable" or not.
Reference Check At A Law Firm?
I Am Applying For A Job At A Law Firm (200) Lawyers. I Think I Did Well Except My References Might Not Be So Good. I Left Without Notice On Both Of My Last Jobs. The Job I Am Applying For Is A Courier Position. She Said She Was Going To Check These References. Do You Think This Is Bad For Me?
Unfortunately, yes. If you left without notice, chances are your former employers will not have good things to say about you, even if they would have otherwise. The law firm may be afraid to hire you, thinking you may quit again without notice.
Is it possible in the future to give names of co-workers you were on good terms with at these past jobs, you may have a better chance at getting a decent reference that way than from your former direct supervisors.
I do sympathize with you, whenever I leave my current job, I will leave without notice, as I know my boss will make my life a living hell if he knows I am leaving. It's always better to at least have something else lined up for sure before you burn any bridges. good luck to you!
Should I Take This Personal Injury Settlement?
I Had A Car Accident In February (A Lady Hit My Car From The Back On The Freeway ). I Went To Chiropractic For About 10 Weeks (3 Times A Week For 5 Weeks, And 2 Times A Week For The Rest). It Costed $8000 To Fix My Car. And Yesterday I Got A Call From My Lawyer That They Got Settlement Statement From The Insurance Company, Saying That Final Settlement Is $7000. And The Money Is Divided Into Three: Doctor Gets 2500, I Get 2500, And 2000 For The Lawyer. I Was Thinking If I Should Sign This Final Release Form Or Not, Because The Money Was Less Than What I Expected. Is It Possible That My Lawyer Could Get More Money From The Insurance Company? If So, Can You Give Me Some Ideas About It? And How Approximately It Will Take? Thx.
This is what happens when you get a lawyer. A lawyer NEVER, EVER loses money and 98% of ALL settlements are made without ever going to court and for usually for the same amount a reputable co would have offered you. I doubt your lawyer will recieve any more funds from the ins co as they usually will only settle in full. Your guy sent you to a chiro (his guy, I'm sure) for inflated treatments (NO ONE has to go to a chiropractor for that length of time for an injury -- get a clue) in order to fluff-up your claim. You don't have to sign the release but be warned -- the lawyer will get his fee. For him, this one is in the books and he does not give a rats-a$$ about you. If you don't pay him this will be one of the 2% that he WILL take to court. Good luck.
