    This is the kind of thing you can really screw up unless you know what you are doing. For instance, I am a lawyer that does not practice in trademark law. If I were to attempt to register a trademark, I would consult a lawyer that knows all these terms of art. You need to think of the best and worst case scenario when making business decisions. Best case scenario, the subject of your trademark is worth millions and lots of people are trying to steal it. In that case, you need to super...

    I had a case with this exact scenario, only slightly different injuries. In physical activity, there is some level of risk that you assume while doing it. To show the casino was liable, you have to prove that they were somehow negligent. Here, you would need to prove that the lane was too slick to be safely used for bowling. In my case, I ran into a wall where I could not find any expert to testify about how much wax is generally used on a bowling alley floor. Believe it or not, this type...

    You can certainly get the same result an attorney would, if you know what you're doing. This is true in any situation where an attorney represents you. There are some dangerous misconceptions about domestic violence out there. Most people think it is as simple as having their spouse show up and say they don't want to press charges. That is not the case. Many people think their victim can just not show up and the case will be dismissed. That is not the case. There is a good reason why I...

    Possibly. Mishandling of the dead is a "negligence per se" case because the harm to the family is considered quite severe. This is why mortuary services are so methodical. You could very easily have a case against the hospital.

  5. What is the penalty for collecting unemployment while working in NV?

    You could be charged with a felony, but often they offer to settle for repayment of the benefits. But, a zealous prosecutor could easily convict you of a crime here, so step lightly. Ultimately, do not incriminate yourself. Contacting the unemployment board to do the right thing would be a mistake because you could end up losing your ability to receive unemployment benefits in the future.

  6. Here in Las Vegas, NV can a landlord charge you a pet deposit again on a lease renewal?

    Yes, if they had to expend the pet deposit for some reason. Keep in mind that a "deposit" is your money held in trust by the landlord. It can be for damages, cleaning, pets, or whatever. Sometimes, the deposit is nonrefundable. Personally, I think a nonrefundable deposit is a scam, but that's just me, not the law. If the pet deposit was nonrefundable, then they can charge you again.

  7. I photographed someone's wedding for 600 but never received payment. Is there any point in taking them to small claims court?

    An oral contract is enforceable in small claims court, and the text messages are called "parol evidence." This is useful to define the terms of an oral contract or any contract that is not in the form of a finalized writing. Small claims court is quite user-friendly in Las Vegas, and all the forms are available online or from the self-help center at the Regional Justice Center. I think your case is good, as long as the defendant has any money. If they are indigent, judgments are generally...

  8. District Attorney's office of Child Support Enforcement has violated a court order regarding Child Support. What can be done?

    Ms. Roberts is correct. There are procedures to audit and/or appeal these decisions by the District Attorney. Start in the self help center of the family courts. Also contact your case worker. You may want to hire a lawyer to put together a motion. It is quite complex to do without counsel.

    In personal injury cases, plaintiffs routinely provide a statement to the insurance company. I would not be worried, as long as your attorney is going to be present or on the line while you do it. Make sure you meet with your attorney for a prep session beforehand. Sometimes the statement can be a great tool to reach a favorable settlement.

    I'm assuming you are talking about having sex with a minor. The age of consent is 16 in Nevada. Therefore, you can have sex with a 16-18 year old, no matter how old you are, and it is not statutory rape. If the minor is 14-16 and you are under 21, statutory rape is a gross misdemeanor, and if you are over 21, it becomes a C Felony. If the minor is over 16, keep in mind you can still be charged with contributory delinquency and/or luring a minor if you are encouraging them to participate...
