There might be options. It is probably more conducive to refuse to pay double. As there is likely negotiation options available that is a likely route. Otherwise, it's hard to say exactly without looking at the contract.

You need to assure that your "prenup" (antenuptual) to ensure its valid (must be fair (good faith and fair dealings), that voluntary and full disclosure of material facts, and an opportunity for wife to have sought independent advice). It is probably most advisable to contact the attorney that wrote your prenup.
Remember that Washington favors rehabilitative alimony to help spouse find meaningful employment. It is usually based on one party's need and the other party's ability to pay.
Look over your agreement with him regarding payment, the applicable L&I statutes/regulations concerning attorney fees (I say to look over them so you'll know it is not simple, but you may be able to manage). It is absolutely your right to decide your counsel even if it is yourself. It would not be appropriate, in my opinion, for an attorney to take their normal contingency fee out of a case they are not a party to. You can look into the WSBA's informal opinion letters regarding rules of...
So evict her. The general eviction process is pretty simple: You'll want to start with a proper notice to initiate the unlawful detainer, then draft a summons and complaint after the notice expires, have a professional process server serve her with the summons/complaint, then if she contests it set it for a hearing. If she is a subtenant with no right to possess the property outside of what you agreed to, then it should be straightforward.
NOTE: There is some that view the above process in...
I am not directly aware of any ethics opinion specifically addressing this issue because I have not done the research on it. It seems appropriate to give you some answer since this question has sat for a while (by Avvo standards at least).
It is a difficult question in the sense of what does it mean for a client to not have "knowledge" of the representation. For example mentally ill clients, minors, and deceased (technically the estate is represented) are often represented by counsel...
Only the state of Washington files criminal charges. Private companies may not. It sounds more like a violation of Consumer protection act, but I would need to know more of the facts (DO NOT post them here or e-mail them to me). The end result is that you probably shouldn't worry about that. However, depending on the agreement you may be liable to the company for the goods on lease.
I agree with Ms. Johnson. There are many reasons you will want and need to establish guardianship over your grandchild. Primarily you will want to be able to make decisions pertaining to her health, education, future, etc. that you will not have the legal standing to make as a grandparent. Furthermore, and no offense is intended, although you properly want the mother and daughter to be together it would be advisable to have some legal standing to prevent it in the event the mother (your...
Oh this does sound like fun. Contact my office this week and we'll see what we can do. I know that just sounds like a "oh give me money," but I am thinking of a couple of privacy torts I'd need to have more information to investigate -- and more importantly it sounds like fun to me.
There are some forms sites that you can look into those. I like to use formsworkflow.com and findforms.com and even once or twice nolo.com.
I know its not a lot of help, but its something that you can look into.
Can the state of Washington consider civil infractions in granting a license to operate a business in a heavily regulated industry such as alcohol sale? Yes it absolutely unquestionably may do so. The fact that certain other agencies or the federal government at some time or presently decides to not consider minor traffic violations has no effect whatsoever on Washington's ability to consider it.
You will not be automatically disqualified for having traffic infractions because almost...
