A judge in bankruptcy court told me I could not file bankruptcy without legal representation.
To your exact question, no it is not a constitutional right. There is a constitutional right to counsel in criminal cases since the Gideon v. Wainwright. That does not extend to civil matters and the states and, by order, you can be required to retain legal counsel.See question
My particular employer is cutting labor and forcing employees to go home early. There is a common idea (whether true or not) that once the schedule is posted it's somewhat binding in the fact that if an employee shows up for work, they cannot be f...
The schedule is not a contract. Since the employers control the terms of employment they can ask the employees to not work as they desire. The only exceptions are, as I noted, contract or if the employer is doing this based on illegal discrimination.See question
In July 2015 a high ranking legal malpractice attorney in Denver demanded that my divorce be re-opened and subjected to analysis for legal malpractice. He is unable to represent due to conflict of interest but told me to seek alternative counsel....
This is not a job board. Start contacting attorneys that specialize in legal malpractice. They will want to review the entire file and may or may not propose contingency.See question
A friend of mine told me insurance companies aren't allowed to look at other states driving records just Colorado's. I have a dui and couple accidents on my record and I've heard that won't show up for insurance if I move there from Wisconsin. ...
I think you are confusing things. All but a handful of states are part of the Interstate Driver’s License Compact which allows the states to exchange information regarding traffic violations and license suspensions. This has nothing to do with what the insurance companies can find and will share. The insurance companies participate in an exchange that gives them all of the information related to your records. Besides, if you apply and lie you are committing a crime.See question
As a mother don't I have right to my daughter's cases, I have not been able to get any information about her cases,. Shouldn't I have some rights to be informed of my daughter's situation with the law?
Sorry, but no you have no right to be informed. She is an adult and will be tried as an adult. There is no obligation to inform you of the matter.
I hope she has retained an attorney. Her attorney can keep you apprised of the situation if your daughter agrees to release that information to you.See question

This is not a class action case. You are talking about a myriad of claimed issues. A class action generally relates to one type of issue (such as a policy of gender discrimination) that impacts a particular class not just a variety of claims.
You should speak with an employment litigator. Depending on the facts and the employer, they could consider to do this on contingency. It all depends on the facts. Start contacting attorneys today and see.See question

That means if this contract was litigated, and a court found a part of the contract to be unenforceable, it can order the parties to follow the enforceable part but remove the unenforceable portion.See question
My boyfriend and I have been together for 8 years and we have 3 kids together and I want to move states so I can be closer to my family but my boyfriend says I cant leave with our kids.
No, you don't. That can only be ordered by a court. If you want to leave, you should contact a family law attorney so they can assist you with a parenting plan that could hopefully work. If you just up and leave he can file an action against you in Colorado. Get legal advice now or pay much more later.See question
I was recently 'let go' by a group. The reasons were vague and the termination was abrupt. One factor that led to this was that I mentioned to other employees that my boss had been going to lunch and drinking and coming back in the afternoons and ...
I am sorry, but your boss being an ass is not a basis for wrongful termination. You can be fired for any reason, no reason, or no good reason. For your termination to be wrongful the termination must breach a contract or be because of illegal discrimination (race, age, gender, disability, so on). Good luck with your job search.See question
