Both sets of laws apply to you. The question is whose sheriff or police can get jurisdiction over you to serve a warrant or a summons. That depends on complex treaty law on service of process and extradition. One of the reasons US computer users are so awash in illegal spam and computer fraud is because countries haven't worked out the jurisdictional issues as they should apply to an Internet connected world. Soon, the Indian prosecutors will be more able to subpoena the computer records that track your email to your IP address and send an FBI agent to collect you and your equipment for legal action in the US under US law or in India, where the damage is done. You need a lawyer or compliance officer on retainer to check for changing law and practice.See question
want to work for the u.s. company but need to live in home country.
The new virtual world makes such employment easy and fairly common. You aren't in the US unless you are in the US. The currency used to pay you is not relevant. You should, however, contact a competent accountant in your country to ensure you are paying correct taxes to the correct countries. In many circumstances, your income will be taxable income in both countries, but you will almost always be eligible for a tax deduction so you are only paying tax once.See question
I'm looking to purchase the condo I am currently renting without a Buyers Agent so was looking for legal representation to help draft or review a sales contract and additional closing contracts.
If the Seller has a Listing Agent, that Broker generally is paid the commissions for both sides if you proceed without a Selling Agent, so you choosing not to have an Agent saves nothing for the Seller. That Listing Agent will happily provide the forms needed to complete the transaction, but will not be representing your interests or protecting you. If neither side has an Agent, substantial commissions can be saved by using a real estate lawyer, who can provide you with the disclosure forms, sales agreements, and closing services where marketing services for finding a buyer aren't required.See question

First, this has nothing to do with probate, so I've recategorized it to Litigation.
Extortion is demanding money in return for not reporting a crime. That's a somewhat simplified definition, but threatening a lawsuit for money owed isn't extortion.
There is a significant amount of money involved, and you are on the cusp of important strategic decisions regarding that commission. You should get a legal evaluation of the strength of your claim so you can decide whether to issue a demand letter or stay out of the way while the lease closes so that your commission claim matures.See question

They need a warrant, but the warrant could be for the person allegedly harboring or abusing the illegal immigrants. Your better advice will come from immigration lawyers more familiar with current ICE procedures in your region.See question

You probably can't collect if your customer went bankrupt and the debt was discharged in bankruptcy. To accomplish that, you would have needed to file a claim in the bankruptcy alleging some defense to discharge, like fraud in making the contract (not inability to pay after placing the order). If your debt is owed by someone or something that wasn't discharged, like the indorsor on a check who signed in a personal capacity or a guarantor or a sloppy business owner relying on his own credit, you may have a claim. It will need to be about enough money to make it worth investigating. You need a creditor rights attorney in Arizona.See question

You can accomplish what you wish by contract, by deed, or by a rare device I haven't seen in years called a contractual will. You can also accomplish it by trust. In any event, your husband needs to consent, because a simple deed from a spouse to a husband and wife changes title permanently, and if you change the title during marriage to entireties property, which can be done quite easily in many ways and will be presumed to be your intent, the surviving spouse takes all of the property immediately on demise outside of probate. Your child gets nothing. Have the deed or other documents prepared by a competent lawyer, not a mere title agent, and don't ask for a simple deed. You need real legal services, including negotiation, not a form.See question

What are some benefits to mediation or alternative dispute resolution has over litigation in court?
You need to add two other variables to map out the pros and cons: mandatory vs. voluntary, and binding vs. non-binding. Mr. Isquith's answers sound right to me for voluntary, binding ADR, although I'm not sure binding arbitration or mediation is cheaper if you add in the cost of non-voluntary enforcement. Non-binding ADR is almost always slower and sometimes less expensive. Even in binding arbitration, you often wind up litigating some or all of the case twice, and that is more expensive and slower than a trial. Binding, mandatory mediation works best with an uninvolved, family member in a probate or family law case, as often imposed in a will or trust, but often results in the mediator being shunned by all or half of the family.
