    Pursuant to R.C. 955.28, Ohio's "Dog Bite" law, the "owner, keeper or harborer" of a dog is strictly liable for any/all injury caused by the animal. In this case, the actual owner/renter is likely uncollectible and/or has no insurance. Thus, your only hope and source of recovery would be the landlord/owner. But establishing legal liability on the landlord/property owner as the "keeper" or "harborer" of the dog that bit you might not be that easy to do. Likewise, if the property owner is "...

    I agree with the other attorneys that responded to this question: "no up front money" and "no contingent fees" is not possible, unless you are looking for a "free" personal injury lawyer. Good luck with that. Depending upon your injuries, I would be happy to assist you at a reduced Contingency Fee of 25% or at an hourly rate (if you prefer that instead) of say, $250/per hour for my time helping you. What I would want to know immediately is (1) whether or not YOU had an automobile and/or...

    You need to hire an experienced injury lawyer. Someone local that will handle your case personally that you can call and talk to anytime or go see hi/her at the office. The problem with your case will be proving proximate cause: that your residual physical problems almost a year after the accident are the result of injuries you sustained in the crash. Only your doctors can render that opinion. And the insurance company will hire Medical Experts to dispute that argument. Likewise, you would also...

    Attorney Huddleston's anwer is dead-on. Essentially, yes, you can be "sued" for lack of a better word by your brother as the Executor of the Estate. Likewise, you would have the right to defend yourself and argue that although you did take money, you did so via POA legally and do NOT have to give the money back to the Estate. Only the Probate Court Judge can determine who wins or who loses that argument. Most of the time, the parties (and/or their lawyers) reach a compromise on the issue and a...

    You must file a "Complaint to Establish Paternity and for Allocation of Parental Rights and Responsibilities" In the juvenile court where the child resides. Find a local attorney here on AVVO to help you. It is a complicated and time consuming process.

    Option 1: seek free legal aide. Call the court and see if they have any free "Mediation" with court staff. Medina County Domestic Relatikns Ciurt has a free court Mediator. But you may have to live or file in Medina to utilize this service. Contact the local Bar Association for a referral to the Agency or the name of any local lawyers that work "pro-bono" (i.e. "Free"). Unfortunately, Divorces are difficult, time consuming and costly. Thus, most lawyers wont do it "for free." Option 2:...

    Yes, you should hire a lawyer immediately, and report the matter to your auto insurance company too. If she admits the traffic violation, that admission/conviction can be used agaist her by the other driver to pursue a "personal injury claim." She could also lose her license by the Juvenile Court for the accident. If she was hurt herself, she could pursue her own "injury claim" against the Drunk Driver. You say the other person "Tweeted" about drinking the day of the accident: you should get a...

    You need to hire a local, experienced Probate and Estate lawyer immediately. Paperwork needs to be filed with the court ASAP to protect your legal rights. You will likely have to pay the lawyer up front to start, then seek reimbursement of that expense from your grandmother's Estate once it is opened and if you can get appointed by the court as the person in charge of running things. Attorney's fees for these legal services in Medina County Ohio will likely require a $2500-$3500 Retainer Fee...

    The property is yours once you have the Deed and it has been recorded in your name with the County. But you may be required to honor any written lease agreement she had with the prior owner, if she actually had one in writing. Check with a local Landlord Tenant lawyer or Ohio Revised Code Landlord Tenant Act.

    You can be charged with a criminal offense from this incident even though the police did not come out and arrest you that night. The police may likely contact you to "investigate" the Complaint. You do not, and should not, answer any of their questions. You may politely "decline" to talk to them and walk away. If they insist, tell them you want to talk to a lawyer before answering any questions. If you voluntarily talk to the police about the incident, understand that they are only trying to...
