  • Can landlord evict without signed contract?

    contract not signed. also landlord charged me a "cleaning fee" but contract does not state what fee is used for.

    Thomas’s Answer

    Yes. Under NRS 118A, there is an assumed "month to month" lease if there is no specific writing. Also, that code section fills in the terms of your lease if you do not have a lease. You might be surprised what is actually in that code section.

    Short answer: yes.

    Thomas’s Answer

    No. Payday loans are an exception to the bad check laws. You cannot be prosecuted for writing a bad check. Their remedy is civil. Getting out of payday loans requires either negotiation of the debt or bankruptcy.

    Probably a class and a fine if you hire private counsel that knows what they are doing. Generally, these cases can be negotiated to a dismissal.

    Forward any documents to your insurance company and do what they say. Don't talk to anyone else about it. Relax and have peace in mind knowing that your insurance company will handle it.

  • Can an attorney seek out info on a person injured on my property ?

    I unknowingly spoke to a law student at my business, who's father is a lawyer about a possible case against me. He may have videotaped and recorded the whole conversation, he asked me to physically show him how much the concrete drop off was in m...

    Thomas’s Answer

    With all due respect, I think you are being paranoid for the following reasons:

    1. Law students tend to speak out of turn, because they want to help or learn;
    2. It sounds like you didn't admit to anything damning;
    3. It is doubtful he videotaped this conversation without your knowledge;
    4. There are several possible violations of the Rules of Ethics if a lawyer sent someone like this without notifying your representation (here, your insurer).

    If you are going to be sued, you will probably receive a demand letter from a lawyer. Forward that to your insurance carrier. Do yourself a favor and don't think about this until something actually happens. You can drive yourself nuts worrying about liability. This is why you have insurance.

  • Can a fourteen year old and an eighteen year old talk/flirt?

    I have a fourteen year old daughter who has been talking to an 18 year old for over a year, I don't know what to do

    Thomas’s Answer

    You can go ahead and involve the police. If there hasn't been sexual activity, there is a risk that there will be in the near future. The police can probably scare the guy off if you are unable to do so.

  • Is it possible to have a DUI from 23 years ago reduced to a lesser charge?

    I tried to obtain a Nevada drivers license only to find out that my license from Minnesota had been canceled 23 years ago for a DUI. I was in the process of moving to NV and I didn't require a license until now because I lived close to work or wo...

    Thomas’s Answer

    If you have not been found guilty of this DUI, you should get an attorney right away and set the case for trial. It is very unlikely the State will be able to prove the case 23 years later. If you have been found guilty, then you should do the requirements.

  • Remedial measures ?

    There was an injury in my lot a month a few months ago, yet I do not know if the injured person has filed a claim against me. If they did, they may have taken pictures of my lot already. Should I remedy the lot anyways or does it matter at this ...

    It is up to you. They cannot use remedial measures against you in court.
