    Nicholas’s Answer

    EDD often denies benefits. You usually have two shots at challenging their determination. Read the decision, it will tell you about your appeal rights, some deadlines are very short.

  • Is it possible to find a retired trial lawyer to coach me through the litigation process

    I am in need of a retired trial lawyer to coach me through the litigation process. I simply cannot defend myself- in the court room against the person who has sued me on a contract that does not bear my signature. It been over 5 years or so.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    If you cannot afford hiring a lawyer, then you may want to retain a lawyer and simply pay for advice. However, all the coaching in the world is rarely equal to having the attorney in the room. Often in court, you will have to make decisions without time to consult an attorney that is not there, which means you could make small but important decisions in a way that could harm your case. You may also want to try legal aid or your local bar association.

    You should consult the Court and its website on collections. You may also want to consult a collection attorney in Washington to see if they assist with collection. If the amount is too small for an attorney, then I suggest you visit a local law library and check out the topic collections after judgment (any books may help). Usually, you try to levy on bank accounts, seize personal property, and other items.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    As the other contributors have noted, generally corporation protect their employees and officers from being sued personally unless those officers/employees have done something to make them personally liable (apart from simply holding the title of an officer). Service can be done on the registered agent where they are located. You may also want to review the small claims self help center.

    If I have two attorneys from one firm representing my company in a civil case can the plaintiff attorney depose one of them? Who pays for the attorney depo time and prep time?

    Nicholas’s Answer

    Normally, your attorney could assert attorney-client privilege and refuse to testify. I am unfamiliar with the facts of your case, you should ask your attorneys about it.

    Nicholas’s Answer

    This is too complicated to even attempt to answer in a posting. You need to retain counsel familiar with oil company issues in Texas. There should be plenty of these. If you don't have money, try your local county bar association.
