    Ezra’s Answer

    It is what Andra said. If this is important enough to you to pay a lawyer by the hour to sue him, knock yourself out. But do not expect a lawyer to stop him on a contingency....you can't take 1/3 of a promise to stop posting!

    This is terrible but it is only a malpractice case if the doctor caused the harm. Poor bedside manner is not a malpractice case. I am sorry for what you went through but you won't get comfort in a court,

    Ezra’s Answer

    In Michigan, having control of the vehicle is good enough to be charged with drunk driving/ In the drivers seat with keys? They can charge you. Your better argument is that you were not on a public road.

    Ezra’s Answer

    You need a lawyer's help. If the time frame is right, you should be able to file an amended complaint but if it is late, you will need a motion.

  • I am looking for a class action attorney who handles landlord/tenant actions in Flint, MI

    I have over 100 class members who wish to file a class action lawsuit against an LLC operating in the Flint, Mi area. This LLC has fraudulently committed illegal actions and has violated numerous state laws. Please leave only messages of names a...

    Ezra’s Answer

    Aside from the fact that this is not avvo's purpose, you should know that class members rarely get any significant damages in class action lawsuits, while lawyers make a ton.

    That 100 people have been harmed makes each of them less likely to collect money - not more. If you have a claim, go alone and bring it to ONE lawyer.

    Ezra’s Answer

    The expression 'expectation of privacy' is a reference to the privacy owed to you by the government. Would you like to sue this person? That wouldn't do much to keep your information and photos safe...
