    Since you have an attorney, you really should ask him these questions. Hopefully, you have faith and trust in him. However, in general, if the other side doesn't want to settle at mediation then trial is scheduled. How long it takes to get to trial depends on the Court's docket and backlog. In Miami-Dade, the civil court backlog is quite extensive and even the trial date you eventually get is unlikely to be the actual trial date because you will probably be number 2,3,4,etc. on that week's...

    Both prior answers of the two attorneys provide good information and advice. Further, you can sue and allege on information and belief that it was your ex who impersonated you on Facebook and posted the nude photos which constitutes an invasion of privacy and perhaps another tort or two. You could then subpoena Facebook for the IP address and other information on the account activity. Facebook does typically respond to these subpoenas and yes they do keep the information on their servers even...

    Technically, yes you can represent yourself. Practically, no. You will almost certainly lose. Also, if you file a claim in court you will likely be dismissed if you fail to follow Florida's pre-suit requirements which include having an expert review the records and give an opinion that you have a basis for a medical malpractice case. If you don't do that and follow all the relevant procedures, a motion to dismiss would be filed against you if you filed a Complaint in Court and likely granted...

  4. Does sex between patient and physician constitute malpractice?

    Malpractice implies a breach of a duty and an actual loss. Unless you have some loss, it may not constitute a viable malpractice claim. You have have sufficient loss given what you describe with the emotional trauma. Honestly, I am not sure as I do not typically handle medical malpractice claims. HOWEVER, it is clearly a breach of his fiduciary and/or ethical duties as a licensed physician in the State of Florida. Therefore, I would recommend you at the very least file a complaint against...

    The very simple answer is to find a new lawyer. Assuming you have not actually hired this lawyer or paid him any money, he was only considering your case. If he is not calling you back now then he has let you know in a less than professional manner that he doesn't want your case. If you did hire him and he is not returning your calls already, then this is a red flag that you may have a lawyer which should be changed anyway. You should consult with other cousnel promptly as each state has...

    Most likely, yes. You are charged under the law of knowing what is in your own lease agreement. Also, the manager was wrong about you not being liable if they rent the lease before your lease expires. A landlord may hold you accountable for any costs to lease the premised and any difference in what you were paying and what he was able to lease it for at the end of your lease term. If there was an option to terminate and be relieved of any potential liability for the balance of your lease term...

    I handle many internet defamation cases. It is becoming a cottage industry. I have represented plaintiffs and defendants. The reality is the same defamation rules apply on social media as eslewhere. If all you said was that your employer was disrespectful, selfish and greedy you should not be liable for defamation as though are expressions of opinion -- but you would probably be fired. If you made any other FACTUAL statements then you could find youself on the wrong end of a defamation suit...

    Most Florida circuit courts have public records searches available at the Clerk of Court's website. You could search there for your daughter's name and find out what comes up and the offenses for which she was charged and/or convicted. Also, you can probably check up on any pending inmate in a state correctional institution at the Department of Corrections' website.

    I just answered a question of yours on this topic with virtually no factual information. I now see another question with more facts. I suspect the lawyer said "I quit" if you take the gun because even though you say it was not used in the crime he has an ethical obligation to preserve evidence, even if given to him in confidence. If you wanted to take the gun back, the lawyer may have been concerned about either spoliation of evidence or being part of a conspiracy after the fact. I would have...

    This is quite common. Opposing counsel and the opposing party or parties in most states may attend depositions. As for signing the transcript, each state has different rules, but most are that you have the right to "read" which means review the transcript to make any technical changes (spelling, forgetting the word "not" or something like that in a sentence) and then sign it. You also typically have the right to wavie reading and signing and then the transcript is assumed accurate. It doesn't...
