    How to request subpoena to get call audio recordings of my cell phone ? I have filed a small claim in pierce district court and my cell phone audio recordings (not just call log ) are necessary to prove my claim that defendant threatened me on ph...

    "pretty sure it was him" is probably not sufficient grounds for a subpoena to be issued but the place to ask that question and any others you have as a pro se would be the court clerk, better yet a full review of the Rules of Civil Procedure parent. Is likely a how-to for small claims court Online.

  • Can I sue the police dept. for my damages?

    The police were chasing a stolen car, it wrecked in front of my rental house, the suspect ran and the police fired over 15 bullets into my house causing $17,000 worth of damage. My renter is breaking her lease and moving because she is scared. My ...

    Rixon’s Answer

    First things first as a landlord you need to protect your interest, the tenant who is scared is not entitled to break the lease and you will need to sue her for the balance due on your lease less your mitigation. Chatting with a local attorney about negotiating on your behalf with the insurance company wouldn't be a bad idea either.

  • What can I legally do to get my security deposit back?

    I rented a property with my daughter. The rent was 995 and I paid 2000 for the security deposit. I was ultimately evicted in Jan. 2015. I accepted full responsibility of everything owed in the amount of 4200. (unpaid rent and damages that were pre...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Odd, why did you pay so much for a SD? Why was the SD not considered in the court action? Did you have a lawyer for the court action? What makes you think the SD was not included in the amount owed? Best if you take your documents to a Norfolk area LL-tenant attorney and review the situation (many offer free initial consultations).

  • Can I pursue a civil rights case or other case?

    A complaint was made to a local government regarding the falsification of a document by a government employee. If the document related to something that caused me harm and was not investigated by the government do I have grounds for denial of due ...

    Rixon’s Answer

    No. Could be a criminal act though.

    FYI, government is not required to "investigate" in every instance or action--due process is about the right to be heard.

    Before you sue, best to speak to a local attorney about the details. Too many issues in your brief post that need to be understood to know if you have anything at all.

    A lawsuit should be your LAST option, not the go-to response. Unless you have tens of thousands of dollars to burn in which case you will need to see a lawyer anyway.

    I suddenly want to reconcile with my husband and I told my attorney about it, but she said I should not do that, since it is too risky. What should I do? Our divorce trail will be in two weeks, and I was told that all family lawyers should support...

    Rixon’s Answer

    If you have an attorney, that attorney is the single legal professional with him you should discuss the tactics, strategies, and objectives. There are certainly good reasons to reconcile. And there are good reasons to not make that mistake
