  • I have been offered a severance package, will a lawyer look at this for me for free?

    I am from Colorado and recently was offered a severance package. It was suggested that I take it to an attorney to look over before signing. Would like some advise on where or who would look at this with me and is this free?

    Robert’s Answer

    No, a lawyer would not look at this for free. This is not a matter that supports pro bono (free) legal services. You are advised to either pay for a lawyer or you can figure it out yourself and hope for the best.

    I am sorry for your loss. Yes, you need to retain a probate attorney. The process involves appointment of the personal representative. That person then has authority over the assets and to proceed to transfer those assets per the will, trust or, if no will or trust, under the intestate statute. Until that is done there is nothing that can be accomplished related to the tenants and all the other assets. Start contacting attorneys today to get started.

    A possible strategy would be in structuring a complex joint venture. Each respective member would be a separate entity and the JV agreement would provide for rights on arrangements, disputes, removing a member, indemnification and myriad other provisions to protect the business and the JV members.

    The prospective members must hire an experienced business attorney to establish the venture and draft the agreements. This should not be attempted without legal counsel.

    If this was a county court case, you are too late. You had 14 days from entry of judgment to file an appeal. Sorry.

    Robert’s Answer

    If the firm entered an appearance in your case they must continue with services until the court grants their withdrawal. Until that withdrawal is granted, they must continue to provide services and that includes responding to you on the legal matter. If they refuse to respond you should consider filing a complaint with the regulation counsel.

  • Seeking a contract with Class Action Lawyers, to provide them a tip, what kind of lawyer should I have as counsel?

    a) Would I need a contract lawyer with class action experience? b) I am doing a contract with Class Action Lawyer, nationwide big firm preferred.

    Robert’s Answer

    a. No.
    b. What?
    c. Market research is not compensation that is provided in class action lawsuits
    d. Correct

    It is very simple. Class actions are not some way for some person who is not impacted to make money. You will not get money for your tip. Either you are part of the class or you are not. In short, your idea of making anything off of this will fail unless you are a class member. Then, in the end, you will get very little.

  • My mother in law has been charged by her care provider for time she hasnt had.This amounts to at least 10,000 pounds over3 years

    She pays 900 pounds a month. The care plan is drawn up between her and social services.The difference between the care plan and actual time spent by the carers is 50 mins per day

    Robert’s Answer

    Hello, First off, you did not ask a question. Second, you refer to pounds. If this relates to a care plan based in the UK (or under UK law) then you need to contact a UK attorney. We provide answers to questions regarding Colorado matters.

  • Colorado. Landlord hires mamgement co. And they raise the rent to 1,000.00 From 660.00/ mon. Legal for 50% increase?

    There has been no updates to the home.

    Robert’s Answer

    Unless you have a lease for a set amount, the landlord can change the rent with notice. They could raise it 200% or any amount they want and that is legal. Sorry and good luck on your search for a new place, if you don't plan to pay this amount.
