I was sued for breach of contract (and my co-defendant). We countersued - and the initial case was lost due to 'inexcusable negligence'. Against my better judgement- we retained the same attorney who lost the appeal-due to "inexcusable negligenc...
Inexcusable negligence suggests malpractice, but this alone does not mean you have a case. More information would be needed to properly assess your situation. Did you have a genuine defense to the breach of contract and what was the nature of your counterclaim? Have you been forced to pay the plaintiff in that case and if so, how much do you owe or have you paid?See question
Random developer (PR) said he could make me some $$ by probating my mom's estate (it only consists of the house I lived in). Except PR only sold the house for $100k (despite assessed value of $350k), which barely covered my back taxes. PR said it ...
This is fraud and you need an attorney. Many people lose otherwise valid claims for fraud because they fail to show each element of the action, which is required to prevail. Before you do anything get an opinion from a forensic document examiner that the signature is fake. It should be easy and it is not nearly as expensive as you think. There are several in Massachusetts who I have had great experiences with. Once you are armed with the information you need you should speak with a litigation attorney.
This claim is time sensitive and you could hold up the sale if it has not closed yet by exploiting a title defect that would prevent the buyer from getting financing. You can and should take legal action to rectify the fraud that took place.See question
Can a landowner (a town in Ma.) configure his land (an impervious street arched in the middle) to drain towards an abutter (me and neighbors) and proceed to rent part of that land (parking meters) to notorious hazardous waste producers (oil and ro...
My understanding is that a neighbor cannot alter the characteristics of the land in a manner to cause an unnatural flow of water onto abutters. If he does he is liable for the damage caused. Therefore, I agree with the prior response that we need more information to let you know if you have a claim or not.
Can you please leave your name and phone number.
This is a fairly simple matter, assuming an LLC is the appropriate entity for your business. If it is, you can expect that it would cost somewhere in the $1500 range, including a filing fee and other costs.

There is a lawyer in Quincy named Kathleen Reagan and she specializes in Equine Law, among other things.
If you were otherwise eligible you could file a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy petition and pay the balance owed to the creditor over a 36-60 month time frame. The creditor could not exercise any rights to collect or redeem collateral without permission from the Bankruptcy judge.
Good luck.See question
We have a tenant at will; however, we decided to sell the property. We gave him a 30-days-to-vacate notice, and he didn't cooperate with the notice. The tenant says that he has until the closing date to move (he found out when the closing would...
No. Technically you do not have to hire a lawyer unless your property is owned by a corporation, however, it is not a good idea to represent yourself.See question
I got hit by a car two years ago i got a lawyer but they never called me or contacted me since
In Massachusetts, if your case is settled the insurance company will notify you when a check is sent to your lawyer. In the meantime, your lawyer would have a duty to communicate with you and respond to your requests for information.See question
I filed the complaint with the Department of licensureand the veterinarian was found at fault for the death of my animal
I agree with some of the prior responses, but may have additional recommendations based on facts. Why was your pet at the vet to begin with? How was the vet found at fault? Was it a willful or reckless deviation from an acceptable standard of care? What documents did you sign on admission?
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.
