  • Are there any civil right attorneys on here that actually works on contingency or am I wasting my time?

    Dicrimination hostile work enviroment

    Robert’s Answer

    This is not a job board, especially for some contingency demand. You will need to research and contact attorneys with expertise in discrimination and tell them about your case. If you have an excellent case you may find one or several attorneys that may take your case on contingency. If your have a weak case (and most are), they will say you can either pay them or try to do it yourself. That will be evidence that you should likely just move on.

    This is a scam. This person will demand her to pay X to avoid getting jailed. Usually you will need to send the money by Western Union or something like that. Have her look this up as this is a common scam.

    Review your HOA governing documents and follow the procedures. There is no general law. Your HOA controls or you can consider a lawsuit. Those are your options.

    To be honest I'm not really sure how I should put this in the correct way but my husband is in currently in jail the reason why he's in jail Is because he has a charge against me From my understanding The charge got dropped down to harassment. H...

    Robert’s Answer

    I am sorry about the problems. Getting divorced in your situation is no different from getting divorced in any other situation. Now, if there are domestic violence issues then you and likely your child should leave and you should consider a protection order. Trying to explain steps in a divorce here is really impossible. There are forms and resources here https://www.courts.state.co.us/Forms/SubCategory.cfm?Category=Divorce,.

    You need to retain a divorce attorney. If you can't afford one contact Colorado Legal Services. Good luck.

  • Could I be sued for slander if I accused my rapist publicly?

    I don't have any proof which is why I never tried to prosecute. Could I be sued for slander for telling the truth about him? I know truth is supposed to be the absolute defense against slander, but I can't prove it's true except for my own victim'...

    Robert’s Answer

    Yes, you can be sued. You are also making a per se defamatory statement. You should talk to an attorney before you say or do anything. I assume you called the police after this happened. If not, always do so regardless of your thoughts of proof. It is not your job to determine what is proof or determine when a case can go forward. That is the job for the police and the DA.

    between the bank and the estate lawyer about the wording on the court order submitted by him and neither of them will do anything to straighten the matter out. It's been dumped in my lap and since I'm not qualified or have any authority and wasn'...

    Robert’s Answer

    No. You can sue your attorney if they breach your contract or commit malpractice. You say this is the "estate" lawyer, but that makes no sense. Who does that lawyer represent? A lawyer has no obligation to help you unless they are your lawyer.

  • Can I lien a trucking firm's trucks in AL that owes us cancellation fees and taxes of $16,510.

    We are an Insurance Agency in CO. We bound coverage for a trucking firm in AL who promised to pay the premium in excess of $72,000. Do to his inability to pay, our agency was obligated to pay the insurer $16,510 for cancellation charges, fees an...

    Robert’s Answer

    Unless your contracts allowed you to lien under the circumstances you described or unless you file suit and win, no you cannot lien the property. A lien is a statutory right (unless you have a specified and allowable contract right) and it is not allowed just to secure debt claims that are not part of the statute.

    You should provide your contracts to a lawsuit attorney (I hope your contracts clearly provide attorney fees immediately on a violation of the terms and if you prevail) so they can review and advise you of your options. They can also advise you revising your contracts if you failed to have them protect your company.
