  • I live in a condo and my upstairs neighbors shower is leaking on me.

    This problem has been ongoing for the last two years. We have brought out multiple plumbers to assess the problem but my neighbor wont take the time to hire someone to fix the problem. She keeps giving the run around like she wants a second opi...

    • Selected as best answer

    Depending on the level of damage, you may want to contact a lawyer. It is very likely your upstairs neighbor is responsible for any water damage to your unit and 2 years is way beyond the range of reasonableness to get the matter fixed. Remember that water intrusion can also cause other secondary issues such as mold. Your best bet is to contact a lawyer for a consultation.

  • My husband was attacked by two gas station attendant they were arrested.my husband was injured. The attendants plead guilty.

    Why is the attorney asking my husband to find witnesses,before he proceed with the lawsuit.He has the police report

    Alexander’s Answer

    I can't say why your lawyer wants him to find witnesses. It is impossible to tell without knowing more about your case. I can tell you that witnesses are often imperative in cases like this.

  • My father is being sued can I be served his court papers

    I work as a secretary at my fathers company, and somebody wants to serve my father court papers, we already got a certified letter but was address to my father since he wasn't here I refused to sign it and send it back to the sender, now I am worr...

    Alexander’s Answer

    It would depend on whether your father is being sued personally or if his company is being sued. Generally, if an individual is being sued, the summons must be served on them personally (handed directly to the defendant) or left at their "place of abode" with someone over the age of 13. If your father's business is being sued, the rules are different. Either way, if you've been made a defendant in a case, you should immediately contact a lawyer to discuss your options.

  • If a tenant fails to pay rent and then moves out, how do I enforce payment of rent due? What type of attorney?

    I have a property in Flossmoor, IL(south suburbs of Chicago). The tenant has not paid the last 2 months rent plus the current month's rent and has become unresponsive. The tenant is on a month to month lease. I sent a certified notarized 5-Day Not...

    Alexander’s Answer

    First, you should be happy that the tenant moved out on their own. Evicting a tenant in Cook County can be a difficult and expensive task. Second, depending on the rent, and how long it takes to find an new tenant, it may not be worth it to hire an attorney. If you do hire a lawyer, I would consider hiring someone who specializes in collections and landlord/tenant issues. This type of lawyer will be able to get a judgment on your behalf and take actions to collect on the judgment. Best of luck.

    I was injured at work where a air hose coupling malfunctioned and disconnected and hit me directly in the right eye. there's a scar on the eye where impact was, and the eye doctor says I have open angle glaucoma and will have to remain on eye drop...

    Alexander’s Answer

    In addition to worker's compensation, you may have a personal injury suit regarding the malfunctioning air hose coupling. I recommend you talk to an attorney who does both personal injury and comp or talk to two lawyers, one for the comp case an another for personal injury.

  • Is there a way to stop someone from harassing / slandering me via Twitter?

    An ex friend moved away and she owed me money. I asked for it via Twitter. She deleted me, but then she and her current boyfriend started harassing me and my current boyfriend. We have blocked and reported them, and the original girl deleted her a...

    Alexander’s Answer

    A cease and desist letter may or may not do anything. Either way, it is largely an empty threat, unless you're willing to spend $5,000.00 to $15,000.00 on a lawyer. I would block them and ignore them. It's that simple.

  • My job has lead poisioning, but paints over it. What can i do

    worked for the company for 7 years, developed high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, congestive heart failure and arthritis. My company is a old house, which is used as business. It has lead based paint that is covered over every year...

    Alexander’s Answer

    From the description of your symptoms, and your working conditions, it is very unlikely that you have suffered from lead poisoning. If you believe you have a high level of lead in your blood, you should seek treatment immediately, as there are therapies available to remove the lead from your blood. In short, if you think you have a health problem, start by going to the hospital, not a lawyer.

    Alexander’s Answer

    I think it is extraordinarily unlikely such a lawsuit would be successful, but you should call some local lawyers.
