  • I have two small children and got a three day or quit notice. My roomate didnt pay her half of the rent and doesnt have any mny?

    I dont have any more to cover it.what can I do?

    Michael’s Answer

    You will need to contact a Canadian attorney. The laws in Canada may or may not be the same as here in the US. Even in the US these are tough cases. That does not mean that people don't sometimes prevail on these facts but it is rare.

    Your boyfriend was clearly negligent. You need to hire an attorney and file a claim against him and his insurance company as soon as possible. A qualified PI attorney can identify the limits of his insurance policy quickly and insure that you receive the appropriate medical treatment.

    its past your probation 3 years last march i didn't have to finish community service or anything he said i slipped threw the cracks am i entitled to get my 520$ back

    Michael’s Answer

    I am a little confused by your question but it sounds like you had an obligation pursuant to a Judgment rendered against you and despite your failure to comply the case has been erroneously dismissed. Count your blessings. Don't try to get your $520.00 back. Never look a gift horse in the mouth.

  • I need a real kick-ass lawyer to sue the school district for an assault on my son by an adult school district employee. Help!

    Does anyone know an aggressive attorney who is skilled at suing educational institutions for personal injury?

    Michael’s Answer

    There are many attorneys who have substantial experience litigating cases against government entities such as school districts. You should go to their web sites to see if they have such experience or you should call them directly. Most quality PI attorneys will offer a free consultation to prospective clients. Good luck.
