The majority of people today do not think about choosing a lawyer right up until they are in desperate need. The lawful dilemma may possibly be personal, like family law, for a breakup or if you are searching for a bankrupcy or trust law firm. It may be a felony situation you want to be defended on. Companies require attorneys as well, whether they are being sued for discrimination, sexual harassment, or maybe unfounded business strategies. Tax lawyers are also very helpful when coping with government complications. Just like doctors, lawyers have expertise. A big, full service law firm has a number of attorneys with distinct areas of competence, so relying on your company legal issue, you can instantly hold on to the best lawyer or attorney to fulfill your ongoing need without having to start your search each time you need legal help.It is most effective to locate a legal representative you can have confidence in. You really want one with a decent record, who issincere, productive, and wins cases. You would like to have confidence that they will represent you thoroughly and invoice you fairly for their services. From time to time a recommendation from a buddy or business affiliate can be helpful, having said that you should continue to keep your options open and review all the firms available, simply because when you want legal help, you need it instantly and you desire the very best you can manage to pay for.

Real Estate Law?
The Bank Is Forclosing On The Home I Live In. The Mortgage Is In My Ex-Fiance'S Name Only (However, He Moved Out And Gave Me A Letter Saying He Is Not Responsible For Anything With The House). Will He Be The Only One With A Forclosure On His Credit Report? What About Liens? Both Of Our Names Is On The Title - So Will I Get A Lien On My Credit Report? I Tried To Take Over The Loan, But He Is Bitter And Will Not Let Me (He Stated That He Wants Me Not To Have The House). I'Ve Tried To Talk To The Bank To Take Over The Mortgage, But They Will Not Talk With Me Because My Name Is Not On The Mortgage. There Is Nothing I Can Do But Let It Forclose. I Will Lose The 100K That I Gave My Ex-Fiance When He First Took Out The Mortgage - But What Can I Do About It? Nothing. Will This Effect My Credit Report?
His loan. His foreclosure. His liens. YOu can be in title and not on the mortgage; but it's pretty unusual. Talk to a real estate atty in your state. AS it stands, if you are in title, you may have some rights as a party in possession to reedem the mortgage. States vary; time to invest a few hundred dollars in a good atty to save 100K
I Need To Find A Lawyer, By A Specific Name, In Alabama. Is There A Database Online That I Can Search?
My thought also was the Alabama Bar Association. Here is something else that might pan out. Try using "ZABASEARCH.COM". This is a free site that compiles data from public utility sites ( water, electricity, driver's licenses, tax bases, etc). Since you have the individual's name, type in what you know and hit the search bar. Anything in the base will come up and you can refine your search.
Best of luck and I hope this is useful to you
I Need Some Legal Advice For My Younger Brother In A Wheelchair.?
To Give Everyone Some Background, My Younger Brother, John, Was Born With A Form Of Muscular Dystrophy Called Spinal Muscular Atrophy Or Sma For Short. This Disease Causes The Muscles In The Body To Slowly Shut Down. From His Lower Jaw Down, His Muscles Over The Years Have Just Given Out On Him, To Lift A Plastic Fork Could Take As Long As 5-10 Minutes With Both Hands If Indeed Who Can Do It. He Sleeps On 3-4 Different Machines At Night To Help Him Breathe. He Also Has A Feeding Tube In His Stomach To Give Nourishment As He Doesn'T Have The Capability Of Not Chocking His Own Saliva, Let Alone Eating. He Has Been In A Wheelchair Since The Age Of 1.
Now 13, He Has The Muscular Capability Of A 2-3 Month Old Infant. However, This Hasn'T Stopped Him From Wanting To Be Like Everyone Else. After Being Home Schooled His Whole Life, He Decided Last Year That He Wanted To Be Able To Go To School With His Friends. So He Started School Several Months Ago, And Is Excelling, When He Is Able To Go.
From Day One, A Very Mean, Impatient, And Careless Bus Driver Has Hurt Him By Driving Carelessly, Harassed Him, Will Not Listen To Anything That He Says. He Is Very Fragile, And Is Not Able To Even Lift His Own Head Up If It Falls To The Side, Let Alone Try To Make Himself Safe With This Woman Driving. She Hits Curbs And Takes The Turns So Fast That His Head Is Constantly Falling From One Side To The Other. This Has Been Going On For Awhile Now, But The School Staff With The Exception Of Several Staff Members Who Work Closely With These Kids With The Special Needs Take The Drivers Side. When It Was Brought To Their Attention That There Were Problems, The Supervisor Called In The Driver, Who Denied Everything And Said My Brother Was Lying. The Staff Members Who Work With The Special Needs Children Have Heard The Same Report From Other Kids Of Being Yelled At, Harassed, And Physically Injured From Other Children, And Have At Times Witnessed It. Yet The School Will Not Assign Another Driver To The Route, And Defend This Woman By Saying She Is One Of Their Best Drivers.
We Have Been Taking Him Every Morning Since Then When We Can In Our Wheel Chair Van, But The Transmission Recently Has Gone Out And His Only Option Is To Ride The Bus.
My Mother Was Called To The School Today Because My Brother Was In Tears After Again Being Mistreated By This Woman. It Was Raining This Morning, So To Protect His Electric Wheelchair, My Mother Covered Him Up So Everything Would Stay Dry, As The Slightest Bit Of Water Will Cause His Chair To Malfunction. Once On The Bus, The Driver Removed The Cover Against My Brother'S Wishes, And Hit The Button To Turn Off His Chair Accidentally. When He Asked Her Turn It Back On, She Remarked &Quot;It Was Probably You That Did It, I Know Nothing About This Wheelchair.&Quot; When My Mother Got The School My Brother Was In Tears, He Was Soaking Wet From The Rain, As Was His Chair, And They Could Not Get Him Off The Bus.
Again, She Has Hurt Other Students, Both Verbally And Physically. Once We Get The New Van We Will Start Taking Him Again, But This Could Be Months. I Understand That All The Buses Have Cameras On Them, But They Have No Audio, And Many Times The Cameras Are Not Even On.
We Have Pleaded With The Transportation Supervisor, And Nothing Has Been Done. My Family Wants To Take Legal Action Against The Driver And The School. What Kind Of Lawyer Would We Seek? Also, What Sort Of Charges Can Be Brought Up On Them? Something Needs To Be Done Before My Brother, Or Someone Else'S Child Gets Seriously Injured.
Thank You In Advance For Your Help.
Have you gone to the superintendent of the school to complain and describe what has happened? Check with your state to see the wire tapping law and if you have one where one party to a conversation can tape or if you have to have permission of everyone taped. If it is enough for one party to agree, put a tape recorder on the student to go to school and arrange for a sibling or someone else to turn off the tape and to put it back on for the way home. That way it is recorded what happened on the bus. However, in some states recording others is illegal. Like in Ohio and Arkansas, one can tape, but in PA or FL they cannot tape any audio without getting permission. ou should be able to look up your state on the internet and run it down on wire tapping law. You need to check with your state.
Another thing you can do is ask that your student be assigned a personal aide. His handicap should require one. The federal handicap law and many state laws require that a student be permitted to attend school and must be provided with whatever is necessary to enable the student to be in the least restrictive environment.
You go to the superintendent (assuming you are in the US) and tell him/her what is happening and that the child has been placed at risk. Tell them that the law requires that the school provide what help he needs to be in the least restrictive environment and he does fine at school but he needs some help with the bus and with classes and needs a personal aide provided by the school. You should get one. If not, contact an attorney who works with special needs situations. It is a specialty. . You could contact the state bar association to ask about any experts in school law and in special needs law.
If your child required a private school with overnight care and even in another state, the state would be required to provide it if that is how he would have to learn. or that is my understanding of it. This is not a legal opinion. You need a licensed attorney in your state but not just any attorney is familiar with what you need so look for one well versed in special needs law. You might try the state teachers association -- like the "state" education association or "state" teachers association and ask them about their attorney and contact them to see about special needs attorneys. They work with school law every day and have a good handle on school law and the attorneys who work with law.
If you pesonally know a special needs teacher and can talk privately, they might be able to give you some advice (off the record). You should get a copy of the law about special needs. Americans with Disabilities Act, I believe is the federal law. The state law may be a section number. You may be able to find it on the internet by looking up special needs law.
Parents need to know their rights as they are the ones who need to stand up for the kids. Many teachers would love to help defend them and help but they can't as their jobs may be on the line so parents need to take this all the way to the school board if the superintendent doesn't do anything. And then they need to go to court to require proper placement and the help the student needs. if the child were hurt, you could sue the driver and the school (where the money is likely to be - though no public scohol has enough money).
Good luck to you. There is no way that this driver should be driving so fast as to take curbs, though it can happen. But should not be messing with the kid's wheelchair. There really should be an aide looking out for the child and it would assist the driver too. it is difficult for a driver to deal with driving a bus and taking care of a special needs child. it isn't fair to expect that and an aide should be there to assist. Think about a driver having to drive and pay attention to traffic and having 20 or more kids behind them and being responsible for what the kids do as well as driving and getting everyone on or off the bus, including handicapped students. Not fair for driver or the student. The charter schools and private schools take money away from public schools and make it more difficult to have the staff needed. Parents have to make sure the needs are met by the schools.
Good luck again.
I Need A Good Lawyer And Dont Know How Or Where To Look. Please Help!!?
I Have A Hostile Work Enviornment Case Here That I Know Will Win In Any Court (From What I Have Heard The Type Of Company I Work For Would Just Place A Settlement Anyway), I Just Need A Good Lawyer In Or Near Rocklin Ca That Knows What They Are Doing And Will Help Represent Me. Any One With Any Real Refereneces Please Help Out.
THE best way to find a lawyer is by word of mouth. Ask your: family, friends, coworkers, anyone you might know in the same situation, etc.
Call your local (usually county) bar association. Ask for names of attorneys that handle your type of matter. (If money is a BIG problem, you could also ask for the phone number of your local LegalAid office. - the attorneys at LegalAid are "real" attorneys, but sometimes in the field of Law, how much you are willing to pay does affect the quality you get.)
When you call the law office(s), insist on speaking with the Lawyer. Just tell the Secretary the main idea of your matter - do not tell all the little details of your matter to the Secretary - save the details for the Attorney. When you get the Lawyer on the phone line, ask him/her:
- Do they give >>>FREE, initial consultations for the FIRST meeting? (most do, but not all - you have to ask, don't assume)
- How much do they charge?
- Could you make payments on your account?
- Can they help you? OR Refer you to someone who can help you?
(This is based on my knowledge, information, belief, and life experiences. This was intended as personal opinion, and not intended to be used as legal advice. Seeking advice over the Internet is not a good idea - the field of Law is too complex for that. Please be careful and do your research.)
What Are My Legal Rights If I Find There Is A Cockroach And Mice Problem After I Signed My Lease And Moved In?
I Rented This House In Tn Well Above The Middle Of The Road Range (Paying $750) And I Found It Has Mice And Cockroaches Since Being Here. I Told The Landlord And He Came Out And Put Mice/Rat Poison Under The House And Sprayed The Inside Of The House Around The Walls And Left A Large Container Of Bug Spray For Me To Continue Spraying A Couple Times Over The Next Couple Weeks And I Guess Maintain The Spraying Monthly Or So.
I Only Rented This Place Because It Seemed Nice And The More I Am In Here, The More I Am Becoming Unhappy! I Paid 750 First Month Rent And Also 750 Deposit. I Don'T Even Want To Eat From My Dishes Out Of The Cupboard Without Washing Them First.
While Only One Or Two Cockroaches Show Up Every Couple Days - They Are There And For Sure There Are More Than A Couple Around Or I Wouldn'T See Any.
I Want My Deposit Back And To Get Out At The End Of The First Month - How Can I Do This? Help-Km
Your legal rights will be spelled out in your residential/tenancy agreement contract. The terms in this contract must be consistent and comply with TN state laws governing landlord and tenants' rights. Landlords have an obligation to make sure the rental unit is safe and habitable regarding health etc. The landlord is obligated to rid the habitat of vermin and such to make sure it remains habitable. This means taking ALL steps necessary to eliminate the problem. The question is whether or not he is taking all necessary steps to do so or if he is doing things the cheapest way possible.
Also at issue is not whether or not the landlord has taken reasonable steps to deal with the problem. At issue is whether or not the place is habitable. Since it is an ongoing problem and within his control he is not fulfilling his contractual obligations in my opinion. In my opinion the problem poses a health hazard and not just an annoyance or inconvenience to you. Explain this to your landlord, give in writing the required notice and move. It is only my opinion but the cockroaches and mice were not part of the deal and had he told you that it will be or "may" be a problem I'm sure you would have looked elsewhere for accommodations.
Bottom line? Read the residential/landlord tenancy act [or similar] for the state of TN. Then you will know with certainty your legal rights.
