    Rafael’s Answer

    Contact your divorce attorney and file a police report regarding the harassment so an order of protection can be obtained. Also let your employer know the situation so they can take steps to keep him off of the employer's property. I am sorry for your situation.

  • What kind of lawyer do i need

    Accident and vital information was left out from the police report. Can't get a response back from BPD when several messages was left for a return call.

    Rafael’s Answer

    The police report inaccuracies can only be an issue if there are material problems or statements. Unless the officer witnessed the events the only portions relating to pedigree information is relevant , i.e. name address etc. If you were injured and how the accident becomes an issue then you may want to prepare and file your own report of the accident with the DMV.

    Rafael’s Answer

    I am so sorry for your family's difficult situation. There are a number of details which need to be determined to figure out if your son has a viable claim or not. There is a significant difference between a third party claim and a workers' compensation claim. I would advise you contact a personal injury attorney to discuss what happened and your options.

    You need to consult with a personal injury attorney. At this point I would recommend you cease any further communications with CVS and talk to an attorney. Most attorneys will give you a free consultation and go over your situation and advise how to proceed.

    Rafael’s Answer

    There are a number of protections under State and Federal law to prevent employers from withholding or not paid earned wages. I advise you consult with an attorney as soon as possible. Your circumstances suggest there is a viable claim to be made under the FLSA to recover those unpaid wages, damages and attorney's fees. Most attorneys will provide a free consultation to evaluate your situation.

    Rafael’s Answer

    Every case is different and I generally advise clients it can take from 2 to 5 years for a resolution. You should request a meeting with your attorney and discuss these issues with him or her. If you are not happy with the service you are receiving then you are free to find new counsel. There is no additional charge to you for switching attorneys, and sometime a free consultation with another attorney can be helpful to decide if you want to stay or leave. Good luck.

    Rafael’s Answer

    Yes. Your employer has an insurance company and the lawyer it hired to review your case. You need an attorney to help guide you through what can sometimes be a complicated process. There is usually no charge in this area to meet with a lawyer to find out if you are comfortable with that person handling the claim for you. Good luck and I am sorry for your unfortunate situation.
