  • How can I get a green card ?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    It sounds like you may want to consult with an attorney to determine what options you have at this point. Depending on what basis you originally came here on such as employer sponsor, visiting, student etc. and when you were supposed to leave by if you arrived on a visa you would want to discuss and determine if options are available. Options may be limited if you have been in the United States without authorization however.

  • Can my friend get a green card through family?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    If your friend is not your family and does not qualify for a green card "acting" as your family member opens both up to the possibility of a fraud determination which could result in denial and deportation as well as inadmissibility in the future. Better to speak to with an attorney to determine if there are any other legal options your friend has.

  • In MD, are there extenuating cercumstances that allow a malpractice case after the three year deadline?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    Under Md. Code Ann. Cts. & Jud. Proc. § 5-109(a) the Statute of limitations for medical malpractice are within five years of the time that the injury was committed, or within three years of the date the injury was discovered, whichever comes first. Therefore depending on when you became aware of the malpractice and whether you could have responsible discovered it earlier may allow for an extension of the statute of limitations. There may be other exceptions as well depending on mental incapacity or age.

  • I have a tenant that doesn't have a lease. We have a verbal agreement to rent month to month. How do I get them out?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    Even without a lease, there are still steps you need to take in order to ensure they are appropriately evicted. Typically even without a lease if they can show rent payments made etc they are considered a tenant and you must follow appropriate either notice of termination of lease and then either breach of lease or tenant holding over processes in court. You cannot simply self help to have them removed .

  • Can a landlord in Anne Arundel county Maryland on a month to month raise the rent from 550 to one thousand verbally?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    You may have claims for retaliation under number of reasons( tenant complains about an alleged violation of lease or law, or a dangerous housing condition;
    tenant or the tenant's agent has sued or participated in a lawsuit against the landlord; or
    the tenant has participated in any tenants' organization.) if you can prove the rent was arbitrarily raised because of a complaint or issue you may have a case where court could award treble damages up to 3 times rent. It would be advisable to have a lease in writing. While a month to month tenancy a landlord does need to provide a 30 day notice if they decide not to renew the lease. While a landlord can raise the rent with appropriate notice there is the question in your case of reasonableness and arguing the reasons why it was almost doubled

  • What should I do?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    If an issue is deemed to be moot it means that it is no longer at issue and therefore no need to make a ruling upon it. If the reason for denial of your Motion for Summary Judgment was because the case or point you were alleging was moot it means the issue or case had already been resolved and no longer was at issue. If the case was dismissed there would not be a judgement so nothing to collect on. If you do have a judgment from the court against someone you can get a copy of the judgment and start the post judgment collection process you which involves additional hearings to determine assets etc.

  • Should i pay for my therapy?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    You may have coverage under your insurance plan for PIP personal injury protection which typically covers up to $2500 towards medical bills, lost time from work etc. I would contact your insurance to find out. If you go forward with a lawsuit against the other driver you can still claim full damages in addition to the PIP payout. Make sure you get records of the work done on the vehicle, a copy of the police report, copy of the other drivers insurance. You may also want to seek another attorney to help navigate the process.

  • My ex-roomate is refusing to repay me after I covered the first months rent. What should I do?

    Jennifer’s Answer

    If you do not have a written agreement regarding repayment it may come down to your testimony against hers in court( if it goes that far). Did the other roommate pay you back for their portion? You may also be able subpoena witnesses if they are unwilling to come to court to testify if there are others that were privy to the agreement made.
