Pest extermination is typically governed by the municipal code of the city within which you live. Some codes state that the landlord is responsible if more than one unit in a multi-unit dwelling are affected while others state that any pest infestation after a tenant moves in is the responsibility of the tenants. Of course, these codes vary from municipality to municipality so you'll want to speak to a landlord-tenant attorney in the city within which you live. If the amount in controversy...
The default rule in Ohio is that every employment relationship is "at-will." This means your employer may terminate you at any time, with or without notice, for any reason as long as that reason is not unlawful. An unlawful reason would include termination due to race, color, national origin, religion, gender, age, disability, etc. You, in turn, may leave your employment at any time, with or without prior notice to your employer.
Unless you had an employment contract, your employment was...
Did your doctor mean you should contact a lawyer about your car accident or the sexual harassment? Regarding the sexual harassment, I agree with Kevin. Regarding the car accident, that's a whole different issue you should contact a lawyer about. Best of luck.

Employers are free to post job openings and pull those openings at any time. You'd only have a claim if the hiring decision was based upon your race, color, national origin, religion, gender, or age despite your qualifications for the position. For more info, see the link below from the Ohio Civil Rights Commission.

Under Ohio law, an employer is required to pay wages at least semimonthly. Wages must be paid on or before the 1st and the 15th for wages earned during the preceding half-month period. Therefore, if you were terminated on the 5th, your employer must pay you the wages you have already earned no later than the 15th. There is no exception in the case of a termination.
If you are not paid within 30 days after the normal pay date or are paid any less than your agreed upon wages, you may want...
My colleagues have offered excellent answers. A copyright protects the creative content of a work, not necessarily the title. It is possible that there are trademark issues involved, but this seems rather low risk to me.
Not advisable. An attorney provides a service, not simply a document like the services you are considering. Not only will an attorney draft a document customized to your situation, but he or she can also provide valuable advice and guidance on what types of documents you may need, identify other legal concerns you may want to think about, and is available to answer any follow up questions you may have regarding the documents or services provided.
Too often clients have come to me seeking...
I agree with Scott.
I would also add that truth is only a defense to a libel suit and does not mean you cannot be sued in the first place. This women may file suit against you based upon your words and it would then be up to you to show that your statements were true. This may be difficult to do if you are only basing your statements upon what others have told you rather than what you have seen with your own eyes. Additionally, by the time you get to this point, you have likely already...
In general, right of publicity laws prohibit the use of one's image for a commercial purpose without the written consent of that person. However, there are exceptions. These laws vary from state to state and I'm not licensed in Texas and do not know the law there. Consult with a local intellectual property attorney familiar with these laws as you may have a valid claim. Best of luck.

I agree with Attorney Wood. If the facts as you state them are true, this appears to be a clear case of willful copyright infringement. You should speak with a copyright attorney about registering copyrights in your artwork (if you haven't already) and the possibility of filing suit against this person.
