1. Yes it means that either one of you can cancel this agreement at anytime for any reason or no reason at all. The 3 year term is there to lock in the terms/provisions of this agreement for that time period, which is usually a benefit.
2. Unless other provisions indicate otherwise, the agreement will expire at the end of the 3rd year.
3. As explained by the previous attorney "with cause" means that a party can only cancel this agreement for a violation or breach of the agreement (in...
More facts are needed before one can properly answer your question but I'd start with looking at the agreement for the first store to see if there is any language/provision that allows or prohibits this.
Your attorney's job is to fight for you and to represent your interest in Court- so If he/she is not even responding to your inquiries, I think it may be a good idea for you to consult with a new family law attorney and do so as quickly as possible. It would be wise for you to take all your documents with you when you go see the new attorney(s) and discuss your case. If your husband is in fact doing the things you've alleged here, you don't have much time to waste. Best of luck to you...
No, under a long-standing common law rule of procedure, a corporation, unlike a natural person, cannot represent itself before courts of record in propria persona, nor can it represent itself through a corporate officer, director or other employee who is not an attorney. It must be represented by licensed counsel in proceedings before courts of record.
Furthermore, Section 6125 of the Business & Professions Code (“B&P”) provides:
No person shall practice law in California unless he or she...
In addition to all the great suggestions/statements made by my colleagues, if you are a party to the case, you most definitely should not attend this deposition without an attorney! One cannot emphasize how important this is! If you are only a witness (in which case as stated by the other attorneys you should have been properly noticed and subpoenaed) you should still consider having an attorney go with you. Good luck!
It seems to me like he did accomplish what you wanted him to accomplish which was having the case dismissed- whether it took one hearing or not, the case has been dismissed. Read your retainer carefully. What I'm guessing you will find is that he has agreed to appear "up to" two hearings for you, it most probably will not say that he must appear for two hearings before he earns his fee!
It may be worth the expense to have an attorney draw up the final documents for you and file them in order to avoid any errors that can cost more to fix later-- not to mention the time you'll have to spend undoing them. Since everything has already been done and agreed upon, the attorney's fees shouldn't be too high. You may also want to consider asking your soon to be ex-spouse to help pay half the fees so it's not a burden on one person. Best of luck!
Whether this is your first DUI offense or not will make a huge difference as to what options will be available to you. If you do not have any prior DUI related offenses, and have a good attorney, there is a good chance you can get probation, fine and classes. Good luck!
Typically you redo all of the forms with the corrected info and resubmit with the notice that they sent. However like the other attorney indicated you may want to have an attorney review your papers at the very least to make sure you are on try right track. Cost of an hour or two of consult is definitely worth the hassle of doing it wrong or worst getting denied.
