I Am A Senior Citizen That Own A Property With A Fence That Was There When I Purchased It 21 Years Ago I Have A Tenant Living There With 4 Kids. A Construction Co. Bought The Vacant Lot Next Me And Want To Build A Home. My Dilemma Is That The Fence That Is There Is 12 Inches Over On Their Property. Next Door. They Said They Will Put A New Fence Up If I Allow Them To Put A Temporary 6 Ft Fence 5 Ft. Inside My Property Line To Put Up Scaffolding And Keep It That Way For The Duration Of The Build. He Has Now Threatened An Injunction That Would Allow Him To Do As He Pleases And That The Expences For A Fence Would Come Out Of My Pocket.
The most important thing is that you do your homework or have someone like a friend or relative help you in this matter.
I work in the Film & Entertainment Industry and you see a lot of people who will threaten you with Law Suits. Many of them prey on people being unfamiliar with the Legal System and use it as a form of Intimidation.
In the Entertaiment Industry, you'll see a lot of people throw around threats of Law Suits and taking people to court. For people who have never gone to court, it can be a daunting experience because they're so used to abiding by the law and being good samaritans.
"Legal Bullying" is where someone "threatens to hit you with a Law Suit" to make you flinch or knuckle under. Whether they have the Legal Positioning to do so is another story. However, when you play your cards right, you can delay his project as well by filing on the last day for appeals and such, which can just be as much as a headache to him.
You may want to check if there is any Legal Precedent where the fence having been placed there for a certain amount of time that may allow you to be within your legal rights or where it's possible that the you may not be in as much trouble as he'd like you to think you are if the fence was placed there by a previous owner.
Sometimes people just threaten people with Law Suits even though they have no leverage at all. Sometimes it even turns out that the person threatening you screwed up and isn't on as solid ground as he or she thinks they are.
It is possible that he could have leverage on you if it turns out that your fence really is on that property, but the most important point is not allow yourself to be bullied around.
Although people would like to believe that the Law System is based off of Justice, legal Issues are a lot like poker to see "who has the better hand." It may very well turn out that he has a better hand, but even people with really good poker hands tend to get overconfident and screw up.
Sadly enough, the other aspect of poker that applies to Law is that the people with deep enough pockets can bully other people around because they have the financial backing where they can outlast their weaker rivals.
That's how a lot of people who happen to be on moral or legal ground end up folding or settling because they don't have the finances to support a long or drawn out court battle.
The nice part is that no fence has been set up yet. If it was a product or service where there was failure of payment, then he may have a real case against you.
Pay close attention if he tries to destroy or dismantle the fence without your permission. You might have some leverage regardless of whether it's on his property or not.
Regardless of whatever he is on solid legal ground or not, don't allow yourself to be intimidated or let him steamroll you over. Always pay attention to latest that you have file. I think it's about 10 days before your actual court date that you may submit that you can't make a court date, which will buy you time.
The Legal System isn't really that painful. It's a lot of annoying paperwork, but the Judical System is set up to be as fair as possible. You want the Legal System to work in your favor.
Sadly enough, crooks and criminals who run through the System a lot know the Legal System well, which allows them to exploit every loophole possible. That's something that people who are inexperienced with the law don't take advantage of.
People should really treat the Legal System like a Game of Tennis rather than try to figure out who's on moral ground or Principles. It sounds like logically twisted, but sometimes you need to know how to deal with people who try to manipulate the Law to their own advantage.
As a Senior Citizen, young people will try to intimidate older people who are inexperienced. Age doesn't really factor in as much as people think.
Another reason why people will threaten Senior Citizens is because they don't feel intimidated by older people that aren't physically strong enough to threaten them. That Psychological aspect makes unscrupulous people go after others.
Try seeing if you can appeal for Legal Help from your area. Try visiting Craiglist:
On the right side there's a listing of all 50 States. Click on your state. Find the closest Metropolitan city to where you live and post an Ad in the Legal Section asking for advice or help explaining your case.
There will be Lawyers that are from your area whom you may be able to talk to directly that will have more intimate knowledge and give you qualified Legal Advice that can properly advise you on how to handle this matter.
If you get Legal Counsel, they may be able to find some Legal Loophole or something that works in your favor. Some may request for a Retainer Fee. If that's the case, sometimes coughing up $80.00 is worth the investment if it will save you on stress and worrying if you're in trouble or not as the other person threatening you with a Law Suit claims.
You can also try checking on his Zoning Permits. There are a whole bunch of things you can do to hinder or delay what he's doing raising his own Opportunity Costs. Right now, you don't have to budge or do anything until he gets a court order of some sort.
The burden of proof is on him. However, even then, you are still allowed to postpone or make appeals that can make really annoy the Hell out of him for not choosing a peaceful resolution and trying to intimidate you.
Even if it turns out that you're on his property, think of it like sitting in someone's Reserved Seat and not knowing it was Reserved. Even if he says it's his seat, you don't have to have vacate your seat. You wait until he brings over an actual Authority or Owner of the Establishment to tell you to move off of that seat.
Don't forget that your fence has been there for 21 years. It wasn't done out of malice or spite. It was just there and you had no idea. They can't punish you harshly for not knowing. The Court System isn't going to be mean or nasty. They'll just give their Ruling. Even after they give their ruling, you can then appeal and try to overturn the decision.
The Legal System was set up to try and be fair and as lenient as possible to ensure that Justice is served. You've paid your taxes. You've been paying your mortage on your house for 21 years. You've paid your dues. It's your home. It's time you have the Law start working for you.
Don't let some young whipper snapper dick you around with the Law. You were working your *** off when he was in diapers. You shouldn't be intimidated, you should be ticked off allowing him to think he can walk all over you like that throwing some Legal Jargon at you.
Qualifications For Law School?
I'M A Freshman Attending A Big 10 School, And I Have Decided That I Want To Go To Law School After I Graduate From College. I Tended To Underachieve In High School (I Had The Highest Act In My Class But My Class Rank Was 103 Out Of 500), But I Plan On Taking College More Seriously. I Know That I'M Smart Enough To Succeed In A Top Law Program, But I'M Not Sure What Things I Need To Be Doing In Order To Be Accepted Into One. What Things Should I Be Doing In College In Order To Make Myself An Attractive Candidate For A Top Law Program?
1) High school GPA/resume
Will this matter when you apply to law school? Well, let me ask you something: did you save some baby mink whales while training for the 2012 Olympics? No? Then don’t worry about high school. The only part of your law school application that will be reflective of your high school experience is the undergrad that you decide to attend and to which you gain admission.
2) What should I major in?
If your goal is to set yourself up to get into the best law school you can, then you want to pick a major in which you’ll receive the highest GPA. Much more than the classes you take, the degree you receive, and the major you pick, your GPA will determine law school admissions decisions. Avoid basketweaving or Simpsons-ology and any other major will be, more or less, equal in the eyes of law schools.
I would recommend finding something in which you have a great interest, as then going to classes will be interesting and you’ll have an easier time focusing. Picking a major you love will afford you the chance to get a great GPA without having to ‘try’, as it will feel more like you’re doing something you want than trying to learn difficult and obscure material.
As a quick aside, most pre-law or legal studies programs are viewed as something as a joke by those associated with law schools. They’re generally law school lite, only without the great taste of Diet Dr. Pepper (because you kids don’t know what Miller Lite tastes like, right?). Most law professors view the knowledge gained in them (and the writing skills developed) as a detriment to a proper legal education, as you have to unlearn some of the stuff you think you know.
3) Are there any specific classes I should take in college to prepare me for law school?
You should be taking classes that focus on writing, analysis, and logic. While you’ll have to relearn how to write and analyze when you get to law school (legal research and writing is different than anything you’ll do up until then), having a baseline off of which to work (a knowledge of grammar, for instance) will give you a leg up. And logic will be the same, whether it’s in an undergrad course, the LSAT, or a class on Contract Law (which can be very logic-intensive).
4) What about this whole LSAT thing?
Your GPA is important, but your LSAT score (aka the Law SAT) is the largest factor in your application package. When the time rolls around, make sure you prepare for it. The test doesn’t ask you questions based on knowledge – it asks you questions to test your ability to think and reason. Those are skills that you can develop by properly prepping for the exam. While you’re years away from that (I repeat, you’re years away from it!), practice books, old tests, and LSAT classes are the best way to get ready for the exam that will, more or less, decide your law school fate.
Seriously, though, go do something foolish whenever you start to think about the LSAT. You shouldn’t worry about it until your Junior year.
5) And extracurriculars?
Find some extracurriculars in which you have an intense interest. Sports, drama, art, Future Farmers of America – wherever your passion lies, go for it. Pick the ones in which you have a serious interest and stick with them, building up a great resume that highlights something interesting about yourself. Fill leadership positions. That will show your potential as a leader, which is something that law schools love in their applicants.
6) Anything else?
Enjoy college. A lot. Seriously, have a good time.
But not too good of a time.
Skip those parties that you know will get busted by the cops, don’t give an officer lip if he asks you for some ID when you’re drunk, and make sure that you keep your grades up. If your average beer consumption per day is higher than your GPA, it’s time to refocus (but, on the other hand, impressive!).
And good luck!
The American Bar Association?
When Taking The Bar Exam, Is It The Same For All Type Of Lawyers? (Family, Corporate, Personal Injury Etc.) Or Does Each Type Of Lawyer Get Their Own Bar Exam?
All type of lawyers get the same, although the bar exam changes from state to state.
A Lawyer In The House... Help, Acquired Brain Injury Guy...Is He Responsible?
My Friend Has Suffered A Recent Separation, During His Relationship He Was Violent And Used Moderate Force. Unfortunately With Bad Consequences And His Wife Ended Up With A Broken Tooth (Because She Was Drunk And Felt) While Arguing Being Rough. He Is Isn'T Bright And Got A Lawyer But Has Not Worked For Him, He Will Accept A Restraining Order In Case To Come And Also Has Suffered Depression For Loosing His Family And Child. Now, What We Never Knew Is That He Had Brain Injury And Twice Was Hospitalized Due To Head Fracture, A Week In Induced Coma Plus Other Injuries. He Was Also Shot! As A Child And Previous Wife Cheated On Him Cos He Isn'T Very Sharp, To Say It Nicely.
He Has Now To Defend Without A Lawer In The Next Trial As He Is Out Of Pocket And He Has Been Advised To Play Guilty And Cop It.
I Don'T Think This Is Fair, Is There Any Law To Protect This Guy?????
Of course he's responsible. An old injury doesn't make you free from consequences. We all have our sad stories.
And breaking a tooth is a felony in my state. Not "moderate force".
Is It Possible That Asbestos Got In My Food?
So Here'S What Happened, And I Have Ocd So I Might Be Over Reacting.
I Went To Subway The Other Day And Got My Sub Toasted As Usual. I Was Almost Finished With It When I Noticed That On The Bottom Of The Bread There Were Little White-Ish &Quot;Fiber Things&Quot;. There Were A Bunch Of Them , And They Were Kind Of Like Very Thin Toothbrush Bristles Or Fine Hair. I Started Freaking Out At Once And Started Googleing Asbestos Because I Thought It May Be It. I'M Worried That Some Asbestos Could Have Got On The Bread From The Oven, But Do The Ovens Still Use Asbestos? I'M Really Confused Of What Those Bristles Are But I Just Hope That They Aren'T Asbestos. What Could They Have Been, And Should I Worry? Is It Even Possible That It Was Asbestos Considering All The Food Safety Laws We Have Now?
If it is, yes, you can appeal a lawsuit for it. I heard there are law firms that specialized in such concern. Seek out the asbestos lawyer from Bergman Draper Ladenburg Law firm, they can help you with your concern if and only if you find out that it was indeed an asbestos.
I hope it is not. Good luck.
