    You hit the nail on the head as far as the exception to statute of limitations rules. The existing lawsuit is likely settled, so you would have to file a new one. You need a product defect attorney.

    HOAs have quite a bit of power under Nevada law. If you get a speeding ticket from an HOA and you do not live in the HOA, I always just say ignore the ticket. Here, the HOA can accrue fines and they eventually have the right to foreclosure on an HOA lien under Nevada law. There is certainly some remedy laid out in your CCNRs. I would call the office staff and ask nicely. They are generally very helpful.

    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.

    NAC 484C.120 requires a breathalyzer be calibrated every 90 days. If you are doing research, also look at the margin of error of the breathalyzer. There are different opinions as to the margin of error of the breathalyzer, but you are arguably within the margin. You should consult a DUI attorney.

    A corporation or LLC cannot represent itself in court. Therefore, even a motion for summary judgment would have to be filed by a lawyer. This is not a wrongful lawsuit. In fact, the law provides for what is called "shareholder derivative" suits for violation of the terms of an operating agreement. You need an attorney to go over the alleged violation of the agreement and to evaluate your ex-partner's chance of success. Your lawyer should evaluate the costs of litigation and how that...

    There is a big difference between wanting to press charges and being unavailable to testify. Your nephew can be subpoenaed and ordered by the court to testify against you now that criminal charges have been filed. Because you and the victim are blood relatives, it is very surprising that you were not charged with battery constituting domestic violence. Simple battery and domestic battery are defended very differently because of the attitude taken towards domestic charges. Call my office for...

    If you signed a guilty plea agreement, the standard to withdraw that plea is very high. You must have had some fundamental misunderstanding of the plea bargain or its consequences. You cannot simply change your mind. I have successfully done this. Your scenario is common. Contact my office and we can review your case for peace of mind. Many people have buyer's remorse after signing a guilty plea agreement. Whether or not your plea is a good deal when all factors are considered, your...

    Lawyers are prohibited by the State Bar of Nevada from ever promising a result. If this lawyer is doing something illegal like bribing a judge or whatever, the Defendant could suffer as a result. Find an experienced lawyer who tells you the truth. The truth is that no lawyer can ever guarantee a result.

    This is the ultimate question. There is nothing you can do unless you are permanently and almost completely disabled. If you find a way, let me know, because I have outrageous student loans as well.

    Yes, they can do that. Employers are free to require certain costs be at the expense of the employee. For instance, many fast food employees are required to buy uniforms. If you itemize on your taxes, you can write off the costs of the internet.
