    In a personal ionjury matter, the contingency fee system was established so that everyone had access to quality representation. You do not have to have money to retain even the best of attorneys on a contingency fee. It levels the playing field for all economic levels in society.

    If the majority of your debt is non-consumer, you do not have to qualify under the Means Test. Simply put, yes, you can file Chapter 7. Of course there are other consideration, but your attorney can expain those to you in detail. You should consult an attorney.

    If you are able, you should try to negotiate the debt. Bankruptcy should be the last resort, but if you have to, you certainly can. If you have other debt that can be discharged in a bankruptcy, it would certainly make more sense to file. Obviously, the more you owem the more worth filing it is. If you do nothing, the creditor will obtain a court judgement and then pursue collections. If you have any other questions or need additional help, please feel free to give me a call at 643-3900....

    The transfer of an asset before the filing of a bankruptcy must be disclosed in your bankruptcy filing. It may be considered a wrongful transfer and the bankruptcy trustee can undo the transfer based on that reasoning. You should consult with a qualified bankruptcy attorney in your area to determine if the asset is subject to seizure or if it can be protected using the appropriate exemptions.

    Unfortunately, the reality is that not every negative statement made about someone is considered to be defamation. The statement has to be untrue, has to be about you and has to cause actual damages that you can quantify. Remember, in this country, we have freedom of speech rights, so there is definately a balancing test between your right to not be defamed and the actors write to speek their mind. The greates determining factrs are how damaging the statement was and how extensive your...

    If you file a law suit for the claim, they are required to disclose the insurance information in discovery. If the claim has a significant value, you should consult with a personal injury attorney who will handle the matter on a contingency fee basis (No money up front).

    Hi Jesse. You may have a valid personal injury claim. However, be aware that if your claim is against a governmental entity (government owned/operated bus), you have only 6 months to file a claim on the proper form providing the proper information. Time is very short on these Government Tor Claims. Consult with a personal injury attorney in San Jose right away. There is almost never a fee for the initial consultation.

    Absolutely ask for a public defender. Do not talk to law enforcement or the district attorney until you have legal counsel.

    You should open an account with www.pacer.gov and check for them by name and social security number if you know it. You need to make sure you search in the right district and division... if in California, there is a southern district, central district and northern district. Good luck.
