    It is unclear from your facts just what you will be filing in California. If you are going to file documents in court, you will need an attorney that is licenced in California to handle that issue. Since Yuma is on the California border, I suspect that a number of local attorneys are licensed in both Arizona and California. You may want to contact the local county bar association for assistance in locating such an attorney to assist you. THIS RESPONSE IS GENERAL IN NATURE. IT IS NOT...

    With an Arizona photo radar ticket, one thing to consider is whether you were properly served. Under Arizona's rules, service must be made by personal delivery to you or your home. Service by mail is is not sufficient. Photo radar tickets are typically first served by mail. If you completely ignore a ticket served by mail, it will be dismissed if it is not subsequently served on you in person. Not every municipality or agency serves personally. If you are served in person, then you will have to...

  7. Cosigner responsibility

    Answered about 4 years ago.

    1 lawyer answer

    The answer to your question requires a review of the lease and its terms, of the related facts, and of any applicable statutes and regulations affecting that lease and your situation. Assuming you have a valid lease, the terms of the lease itself would generally govern your situation and that of any co-signer. However, certain leases, such as residential property leases in Arizona, are also subject to specific Arizona laws that may affect the rights of you and/or your co-signer. Also,...

    I am not licensed in Michigan. Neverhteless, attorney's fee rates tend to vary widely depending upon the attorney's experience, your geographic location, and the complexity of the engagement. On contract matters, you will not only find variable rates, but also variable plans. You may find that some attorneys will only charge an hourly rate, while others may be willing to charge a flat fee per contract. Either way, the fee will depend largely upon the complexity of your contracts. A good...

    I am not licensed in California or Wyoming, so I can only comment in general terms. Typically, an LLC can make payments to third parties, such as vendors, independent contractors, or any similar person or party to whom it owes money for goods or services. The manner and amount of the payments will generally depend upon the agreement with that third party. For example, many commercial retail leases require the tenant (including tenants that are LLC's) to pay a percentage of profits as...
