    In general typographical mistakes are not sufficient to have a case dismissed. You should consult with a local attorney to get a more specific answer under New Jersey law.

    It would certainly be unadvisable for an attorney facing a grievance to retaliate against the grieving party.

    There is nothing that would prevent the attorney from representing his clients in a new case even if it involves the same parties, unless the new lawsuit involves the same issues as the case that was settled. I would recommend finding an experienced attorney in Washington to more fully answer your question under Washington law.

    I am unsure what the process is in California, but in Michigan its State Bar takes over a deceased attorneys files to make sure that the clients get their files and paperwork back and can hire a new attorney if need be. I would recommend contacting the State Bar in California for a more specific answer.

    In some jurisdictions the file is considered property of the lawyer; however, you are generally entitled to get a copy of your file. I would recommend contacting an experienced attorney in Vancouver to more fully answer your question.

    Yes, a digital time stamp can be used as evidence, but that does not necessarilly mean that it will necessarily be taken at face value. The opposing party could present evidence that contradicts the digital time stamp and show that the digital clock was not set to the right time. The opposing party could also try to show that the digital time stamp had been altered in some manner. Many computer forensic companies can preserve this type of evidence for trial and show that the digital time...

    You need to contact a local attorney immediately. There are deadlines to file an answer to the Complaint. If you do not file an answer within that deadline, you run the risk of being defaulted. (Which means that the Plaintiff automatically wins). The local attorney will also be able to help decide whether you should not have been individually named and can take appropriate action.

    In general, there is nothing that needs to be done in response to an answer to a Complaint. The exception is if the defendant has filed affirmative defenses along with their answer to the complaint, the affirmative defenses may have to be answered. One of the elements of a legal malpractice claim is damages. You have to show that the lawyers actions caused you damage. You also have to show that you would have prevailed as Plaintiff in that case but for the attorney's conduct in order...
