    Yes it is possible to be given multiple tickets at the same time for the same offense. Good news is that if tickets are returnable at Nassau County TVB than you have a very good chance of being able to negotiate a favorable disposition depending on your driving record. I appear in this court often. Do not miss work or school as you do not need to appear if yo u hire an attorney. Save time and money call my office for free telephone consultation.

    You would use an executors deed. I assume you have probated your mothers will and that letters testamentary have been issued by the surrogates court. You would also need to a tp 584 and. RP 5217 forms to be completed and signed. It would be best for you to consult with a local attorney as the cost to complete and have the deed and forms filed is minimal. I am in Garden City call me for a free consultation.

    This would probably fall under the neccessities doctrine in NY General Obligations law. New York applies the doctrine of necessities to medical debt incurred by a spouse. However, the rule appears to require that the expenses be incurred on the credit of the surviving spouse and that he or she has the ability to pay. The doctrine of necessaries requires a showing that the necessaries were furnished based on the credit of the spouse and a showing that the amounts alleged to be owed are...

    Mr. DeMaria has given you good advice here. From the little information you have given the crux of the issue will be what representation in the contract of sale the seller has made regarding the size of the property. If you are represented by an attorney ask him/her if a legal description was attached to the contract when it was first sent out to buyers. That will give you a clue as to what was represented regarding lot size. BTW you do not need to be represented by an attorney to buy...

  7. Which attorney is responsible for working to get a judgment against property for sale resolved - the seller's or the buyer's?

    The sellers attorney is responsible for clearing title objections. Your questions seems to indicate that the estate attorney is also acting as the selling attorney. While this is ok if the estate attorney knows what he/she is doing. If not maybe the file should be handed off to an experienced real estate attorney. The fact is that assuming the judgment amounts are not in excess to the equity of the property the judgment can be paid off at the closing table.

    Mr. Lutsky gives good advice. There should have been an agreement at closing that the Sellers attorney would hold back a certain amount of the Sellers money ( we use the term of art "escrow") this money will not be released until the Seller completes all the repair items he promised either in the contract or at the closing. It is important to realize however that if the escrow amount is not substantial some sellers wil l just walk away. That is why it is important to have negotiated an...

    The answer is dependant on when you mailed the request for a supporting deposition back to the court. the People generally have thirty (30) days with which to provide a deposition. So if you sent it on July 17 and still have not receieved the deposition you would have to move the court for a dismissal. This is not so easy. It would be best for you to call the cour t and find out what the rules are for a such a motion (ie: are they madee on notice or can you make an oral...
