  • We are selling a home in New Jersey and want to know if a deposit on a home is refundable or not.

    it seems that this deposit can hold up the sale and now after 3 months they want to back out and we have lost opportunity to sell on other occasions is there any recourse

    Gregory’s Answer

    Besides the terms of the contract, it depends why they are cancelling the contract.
    You should be discussing what to do with the attorney that is representing you in the sale of your home.

  • Do I have a good chance at beating these tickets?

    Last November I received 2 tickets in the mail. 1 was for using a cell phone and the other was failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. I have appeared in court 4 times already and the officer has not shown up once. I have tried to obtain ...

    Gregory’s Answer

    The fact that the "officer" who issued the tickets is only a parking enforcement officer adds an interesting issue to the case but is not a basis in and of itself to dismiss the tickets. You need to hire an attorney to represent you in this matter. Had you done so in the beginning, these tickets would have already been dismissed.

    It is not clear from your post whether you were found guilty in Superior court or Municipal court.
    If it was municipal court you need to hire an attorney ASAP as you only have 20 days from the date of conviction to file an appeal.

  • I am curious about the background check for a work visa to new zealand and weather it will show a dui from nj?

    Will this disqualify me from obtaining the visa and am i permitted to say I have no criminal record?

    Gregory’s Answer

    In New Jersey a DUI is not a criminal conviction. So if the question is have you ever been convicted of crime? you can truthfully Answer No.
    However, I do not know if New Zealand will look to see if you have a DUI conviction. I know that Canada does and it presents a problem for travel into Canada.
    You need to speak with an Immigration attorney.

    Gregory’s Answer

    Based on what you posted, I would say you need to see a workers compensation attorney. When you meet with an attorney he/she should be able to make a determination if there is a possibility of bringing an additional lawsuit against a third party.

    An attorney is going to be able to maximize the award you get for your permanent disability.
    Why don't you schedule an appointment with an attorney and ask them the questions you have.
    The consultation will be free.

    I have attended a live real estate auctions in Jersey and bid a house with my deposit. However,, i want to broke the contract for the house is not worth the bidding price after i doing some research. Is there any chance i can get my deposit back o...

    Gregory’s Answer

    You should schedule a consultation with an attorney to review the rules of the Auction as well as whatever contracts you signed. The mere fact that you now have buyers remorse is not a sufficient basis to void the contract. However, an attorney may be able to find you wiggle room to try and get out.
