If the lease says nothing about pets, point out that fact to your landlord. Your lease is a contract between yourself and your landlord that sets forth the terms of your tenancy.See question
If I can not seal it or have it expunged is there an amount of time I have to wait or is there a way to keep it out of public view?
You are going to have problems sealing your criminal record. First, in Ohio, domestic violence under O.R.C. 2919.25 cannot be sealed. Second, unless an exception applies, only those who are first-time offenders are eligible to get their record sealed (applies to misdemeanors and felonies).
I'd advise you to contact a Marysville criminal defense attorney for a consultation. After reviewing your record and looking for an exceptions in Ohio law, they could conclusively advise you whether or not it would be possible to seal your record.See question
I was forced to resign due to lack of accountability to my team members. never received any write ups. My general managers basically put all the blame on me on the mistakes that they made and the HR made.
Whether you have a valid claim for wrongful termination depends on your status as an employee.
Ohio is known as an at-will employment state. Unless the terms of your employment are governed by a contract between yourself and your employer (or other exceptions, such as union rules or an employee discipline handbook), you are most likely an employee at will. Employees at will can be fired for cause (you screwed up), no cause (you didn't screw up) or even bad cause (they fired you because you're a Michigan fan and they're OSU fans). Therefore, if you were an employee at will, you do not have a claim.See question
my son was a passenger and the driver did not own the vehical his dad was owner and carried insurance on it, The driver was way over legal alcohol limits and they were served in a bar all being minors. We recieved a settlement from the bar and the...
The settlement agreement you signed likely contained language that released the insurance company and the insured from any claims you could make against them. Additionally, all legal claims have a 'shelf life' called a statute of limitations. I do not practice in Florida, so I do not know the statute of limitations, but even if you didn't sign a settlement agreement, the statute could bar you from recovery.
Perhaps a local injury attorney would be willing to advise you after reviewing your settlement documentation. Terribly sorry for your loss.See question
I payed my 549 plus 76 for late fees on 7/ 20 and recieved a notice to vacate on 7/23 with my money order returned to me. Isnt there a law that requires the rent to be 30-90 days late before a tenant is evicted i was 18 days late and they say thei...
The other attorney is correct, check your lease agreement, those terms control. There is no law in Ohio that says rent has to be 30/60/90 days late before eviction proceedings can begin. Your lease agreement likely contains language that states the landlord can institute eviction proceedings when your rent is 5 days late.See question
i was walking out the door of family dollar and didnt notice the sidewalk was broken i twisted my ankle and fell.
Probably not, for at least two reasons.
First, your damages are an integral part of any personal injury lawsuit. Monetize your damages - what is a twisted ankle worth? A hundred bucks? A few hundred, at most? No smart lawyer will put time and effort into your claim when all he or she stands to gain is 1/3 of a hundred bucks.
Second, a broken sidewalk is likely an 'open and obvious' hazard. While businesses have a duty to keep their property in a reasonably safe condition, some hazards, perhaps like a broken sidewalk, are deemed to be so 'open and obvious' that a person encountering the hazard is expected to use caution and avoid the hazard.
If you damages turn out to be more extensive - for example, if you tore ligaments and tendons in your ankle, or broke your wrist in the fall, it would be advisable to consult with a local personal injury attorney to explore your options. But based on your injuries as described, its not worth your time or the time of an attorney.See question

Monetize your damages. What is a bruise worth? A couple bucks, max? Maybe a hundred? Now think about how much it would cost to simply file a lawsuit - $300-$450 dollars, depending on your county in Ohio and whether you include a jury demand. Its easy to see that it doesn't make financial sense.See question

Ohio is an at-will employment state, which generally means that you can be fired for good cause, bad cause, or no cause at all. There are certain exceptions to this general rule, however, including the terms of an employment contract you may or may not have signed, an employer-employee handbook specifying certain guidelines your employer will follow, and finally, whether or not your termination was because you were a member of a protected class as detailed in the Fair Labor Standards Act.
Should you believe any of the above apply to you, it would be wise to consult with a labor and employment attorney. He or she could advise you whether or not you have a valid claim for wrongful termination.See question
My car was totaled by a drunk driver two days ago with no valid license and possibly no insurance. We have uninsured motorist, but the car was older with only liability so we would be out a car. He was not the owner and they're both from texas. He...
The key is to hire a personal injury attorney to negotiate with your insurance company regarding the uninsured motorist claim. An attorney will help maximize your recovery, as your insurance company is going to do what is in their best interest - not yours. The attorney can also take the step of filing a lawsuit against your carrier should you believe their offer of settlement, if any, does not properly compensate you for your physical and mental suffering.See question
