  • How can I get an unemployment garnishment waived or lowered? will bankruptcy clear the debt?

    I have to pay back the state of Washington for unemployment because they stated I didn't apply for right program..

    Warren’s Answer

    Maybe. You didn't say how much they are claiming you need to pay back. But if it is less than a few thousand dollars, you probably ought to go into their office and see what the options are. Even if a bankruptcy can fix it, bankruptcy has a cost as well.

    Maybe. Maybe not. Hard to answer a question based on a two-line synopsis. A consultation would be worth the few dollars it'd cost.

  • What should I do right now? Should I call Midland? Should I call the courthouse? Any suggestions?

    I have been recieving a lot of mail from law firms telling me that a lawsuit has been filed against me by Midland Funding Lic assumingly for credit card debt for $3404.00 in the Harris County Clerk's office on January 25, 2016. I have not recei...

    Warren’s Answer

    If you haven't been served yet, and want to get a copy of the suit, you can call them and pay some amount of money to them to have it faxed to you, maybe. You can also go to the courthouse and get a copy.

    Once you've seen the suit, you can call them and see if you can settle it. Based on what you have written, it's not worth filing bankruptcy over just yet, but a visit with a local bankruptcy attorney would be probably worth it.

    Download a call recording program so the next time you get a call. Then take the recording to an attorney. You can handle the whole thing by phone.

    If you owe the money, best to pay it.

  • How do I go about paying my case off early to get it completed? Will it discharge early if I pay early?

    Ch 13 plan almost complete. I owe $2,368 of $29,420. 100% plan. Due to be complete in June 2016. I'd like to go ahead and pay it off. I asked my lawyer how this works and this is the response I got back...Just doesn't seem right to me: "He can pay...

    Warren’s Answer

    Sadly, here in the real world, if you attempt to pay early, your trustee will question where the money is coming from. There is a lot of work and time required to prove that you aren't actually making more money than you reported. If you just gotten a raise, then the trustee will want to raise your payment for the duration of your plan.

    That's why most bankruptcy attorneys will recommend that you don't mess with something that is working...just make your monthly payments and get your regular discharge.

  • I wanna know can they take my wages from me

    Can a rim fiance place out of state garnish your wages of you live in texas

    Warren’s Answer

    The general is no. However, sometimes, particularly if the employer's headquarters are outside the state, there are exceptions. If you are concerned about a judgment, there may be other ways of tackling it. Contact a local attorney and explain the situation.

    Warren’s Answer

    If you are not pretending that you are sponsored or affiliated with a company, you can often get away with such things in a non-commercial setting. In a commercial setting, it's stickier. At the least, you should consider that you may be sued.

    The details of what you are doing matter, so it warrants a visit to your local trademark attorney.

  • Is there a bankruptcy lawyer who will take a pro bono case?

    My brother has had to declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy for his Physical Therapy business. The lawyer representing him and his three partners (they hold 60%--he holds 40%) never seems to know what is going on and seems to be postponing and dragging t...

    Warren’s Answer

    When you ask about a pro bono bankruptcy, most of us think of the poor or elderly who need a fairly simple filing. Chapter 11 cases are very complex in the best of times. However, I'm in the process of training an associate on C11, so you can call our office and make an appointment. We may not do it for free, but we'd be less than many.

    Warren’s Answer

    It is important to understand what registration means and what it doesn't mean. You have a mark when you use a mark - registration is not even allowed at all before usage.

    You don't "need" a federal registration to have a mark. The registration is an announcement to the world that you have the rights regarding the mark.

    People who have been using the mark prior to your registration cannot be simply brushed aside. Answering these kinds of questions means you need to speak to one of us and in detail.
