My public adjuster and my lawyer failed to protect me under my policy term and now I have damages that exceed 100,000 to my house. I have most recent claim in febuary when my roof was further damaged due to ice on roof and the insurance company t...
To respond to your question I need more information. If you had coverage for this loss and you retained a lawyer and insurance adjuster to work on your behalf, they should have sought the dispute resolution provided for in your policy within the period of time allowed under your policy.
If they failed to do so then you may have professional liability claims against one or both of them, however, you must be able to demonstrate that one or both of them undertook an duty of care to you. This may depend on the existence of a fee agreement or other materials that prove you hired them to assist you.

If your lawyer is not communicating then you need another lawyer. The transaction you believe occurred should not happen without your involvement as well as a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO). It is possible that there is a simple explanation for what happened, but if your lawyer is not responding you should replace him/her.
Hello When i was currently living in Arizona last year, i was attending school the spring semester there but i didn't have much personal money to pay for the classes so I researched loans I can borrow to at least pay a down payment for the classes...
These types of loans may be illegal depending on the amount of the interest rate charged and the state law applicable to the facts (AZ vs MA). It is impossible to address your question without more facts.See question
I signed a contract with a kennel stating our puppy was a purebred, pet quality unregistered Springer spaniel When she began showing aggression towards strangers, we hired a trainer who suggested we run her DNA due to our dog's unusual personalit...
This is a Consumer Protection issue. If I were you I would hire an attorney and pursue a 93A claim. These types of claims allow you to collect up to three times your damages plus legal fees if you are successful at trial.
Last year my fathers lawyer advised my father to transfer title of his house to me and my 3 siblings and retained life estate to himself. He said this is best for the property not to go through probate. In May, 2014, I filed for a chapter 7 bankru...
I think you should consult with a legal malpractice attorney.
If your bankruptcy attorney characterized your current ownership of your dad's home as a future interest he may not have realized that this was a present interests subject to a life estate. Depending on the value of the house and any liens, the house may be a non-exempt asset. This means the trustee can seize and sell it, subject to your dad's life estate.
There is a market for this asset. There are certain people around the country who buy these assets out of the bankruptcy court all the time.
Before you do anything you should speak with an attorney (not your Bk attorney).
My brother has learning disability, cant read was confused over vacation days. They are letting him go for no call no show at work .I would like to know if he can collect if he willingly resigns.
Tell him not to resign. If he is laid off he will be able to collect unemployment. If he is disabled he may have other options. There is an attorney in Braintree named Tom Benner that helped me out with a client in a similar situation.
In prison for 7 to 9 yrs. he couldn't make the back taxes. I went to see him and we agreed to the sum of 10,000.00 . I was told by the legal dept. this could all be done by mail. I sent him 5,000.00 [half] in good faith. I know from my bank the c...
Is your objective to recover the money given to your nephew or protect those lots?
Do you know if your brother's estate was administered? If not, you could petition the court to be named personal representative of the estate. If his son does not object you would likely be allowed and you could administer the estate to protect those lots.See question
I am fine with moving for a variety of reasons but feel that I should receive some type of financial support to help with my future housing expenses in exchange for terminating my rights. Is this a reasonable expectation? Is their a formula for...
This is far from a reasonable expectation. This is a form of financial exploitation and the pressure being put on you is called "undue influence". There is a way to value your interest and nobody should be forcing you to convey this interest. This decision should be yours to make voluntarily after carefully weighing all options.
Do not do anything without first speaking with an attorney.

How did the lawyer manage to get $26,000 in cash payments? Did you have a signed fee agreement? Is this lawyer part of a larger law firm or is it a small practice? Have you discussed what happened at the bank with the bank manager? I would speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Before you call anyone you should be prepared to answer these questions.See question
