  • I am looking for an attorney that does it all... including elder law. what are these lawyers called?

    all purpose attorney...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Does it all? No one.

    Just like there is no one vehicle that 'does it all'. You need a pick up for certain jobs, a bull dozer for some, a sedan for others.

    Elder law? Try Elder law attorneys.

    Not successfully on any facts you posted here. Would cost you thousands and net you nothing, even if you could prevail.

    I started with Efc valve in 2005. The company sold to industrial distribution group a couple years ago. I went from helper to manager in less than 3 years. After idg took over I was bumped down to field supervisor. I have always maintained a clean...

    Rixon’s Answer

    I am sorry for what has happened. FYI, In any at will employment state (which all but one state are), an employee may be fired for any reason, or no reason absent a written employment contract, union protections, or discrimination against a protected class of person. That said, any employee may be fired for any reason, anytime. Any employee may quit for any reason, any time. Here, there is ample reason to terminate--driving a company vehicle with a suspended license. The company would be remiss if they did not take action of some kind.

    Changing practice area to employment.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Never heard of an "employee" on the phone having the power to "resolve the matter" where child support is involved. Something certainly doesn't sound right. Best option at this stage is for you to retain a lawyer (you wouldn't be in this situation if you had done that earlier) no way to know for sure what your situation is, from what is posted here.

    Recommend you consult with a California family law attorney ASAP.

  • Can someone be sued for giving someone who was placed on a feeding tube something to drink? The persons family is threatening.

    I gave a good friend a sip of a smoothie because I felt so bad for him, not realizing that because he's on a feeding tube he's not supposed to swallow anything. Now he's in the ER, probably unrelated to my actions, but the family knew I gave him ...

    Rixon’s Answer

    Of course.

    You should be worried.

    Whether or not you are sued, you may lose your job, and you may be facing criminal charges too.

    Not a good idea to admit to any act in writing--as you did here. Anything you post on the Internet may be used against you and you have admitted doing what you may be accused of.

    Stay offline, contact a MA criminal defense attorney if you are charged with a crime. Contact a MA civil litigation attorney if you are sued.

    Make no statements to anyone until you have retained a lawyer.

  • I have a criminal tenant that I want to evict, How long is he legally allowed to stay? Virginia

    I have a tenant who brought people over which resulted in an a robbery. We have giving her three weeks to depart but she does not seem to be making any progress on departing and although showed signs of cleaning up seems to maintain contact with b...

    Rixon’s Answer

    You have no power to evict, only a court does. How did you arrive at "three weeks" as notice? How did you present the notice? Written lease? Oral agreement? Annual lease? Monthly? Weekly? Apartment? Room in a home? Room in a hotel? How do you know the tenant is "criminal"? You will need to terminate your arrangement in accordance with VA laws. Much will depend on the type of lease, and other details not in your post. Sounds like you took on responsibilities of a LL but were unaware of the requirements and duties that entails. Recommend you reach out to a landlord tenant attorney in your area ASAP.

    Rixon’s Answer

    Your son needs a criminal defense attorney immediately. He should not speak to police, under any circumstances. FYI, Police are not required to get parents consent to speak to suspects. They are required to stop if the suspect demands a lawyer...not a parent.

    Contact the VA State Bar association http://www.vsb.org/vlrs/ to begin searching for an attorney.
