All retainers over $3000.00 (Three Thousand Dollars) must be in writing. The Rules do not require two signatures and failure to provide the retainer does not automatically preclude the attorney obtaining or recovering a fee. For more information see below. For questions, call your local County Bar Association, or the NYS Bar Association in Albany, NY.
Someone under the age of 18 cannot be bound by a contract. Cancel the contract and ignore the protests. Make it clear you are cancelling it by sending that information by regular mail and return receipt requested (that's right 2 letters saying the same thing.) Hold onto the receipt in a safe place for when they start claiming you have to pay them beyond the day you cancelled. The only one on the hook is there employee.
This was a really dumb plan. Especially the sales associate using his...
Though that is the usage commonly. Legally no. They only have an affinity at common law.
Assume "A" and "B" are Brother and Sister and both are married. The "A"'s wife, is a sister in law to the "B", and "A" is a brother in law to "B"'s husband, but "A"s wife and "B"s husband are not related and only have a legal affinity between each other. Barring a law to the contrary, there is thus no legal relationship.
You have a lawyer you do not talk to. Your case to your knowledge is not filed and the statutue of Limitations may be running, and you want to know if you can speed up the process and if you should file a complaint.

One of us probably can help, but you have yet to ask a question.
You have a number of problems. First: NO Someone does not have to be guilty. You plead guilty. If you said not guilty and your Ct appt'd attorney disobeyed your wishes you should have spoken up. Now you need to get a compy of the transcript. Seems you big problem was you were afraid of going to jail which leads me to believe that either you thought there was a chance of that or that you allowed your lawyer to scare you.
I strongly disagree with the statements above. You should seek out the District Attorney of your county and go to their complaint bureau. If the police will not act., maybe the DA's office will have better understanding of the issue. Most crimes of a sexual nature do not have to have cooberation anymore. Besides your 911 call and your proof of injury is cooberation.
You may want to hire an attorney to press your case with the DA and to bring an action with the Human Rights Commission. In fact...
You may have a good law suit or you may not, yes a lawyer may want an independant autopsy depending on what the original one said caused the death. Further, while the damages are pretty bad, without any information to the contrary, it is hard to sustain a case against the jail if the guards didn't cause his injuries. An investigation will be needed.
It is unlikely that someone would take this on a contingency basis and you will probably need a pretty good sized retainer as...
Given that they have been apart for over 2 years, assuming that he has grounds for the divorce he should be able to get the divorce. If the divorce is filed then usually the fact that one party has a new lover does not cause a problem. OTOH if you want to be safe, wait.
More information would probably be helpful but if I am reading your question correctly, you were driving and stopped at a light when you were hit by a cop on a chase who was without lights or siren. I assume you were injured and want to sue the police officer.
You should get to a lawyer right away. You need to file a notice of claim against the city within 90 days of the accident or you cannot sue.
The issue of the crosswalk notwithstanding, if you are injured, your car being in a...
