I have been recorded without my consent within my home video phone . Privacy has been violated in all possible ways. Victim /offender information
I'm not sure I understand your question. Do you consent to communicate with the home video phone, or is a second party hacking in to view you without your consent? If you are actually communicating with the video phone, there is nothing illegal in Ohio that prohibits one party to the conversation to record. They need not ask permission nor tell you.See question
They cut my pay down and my supervisor laugh during it then same Supervisor tells me I'm going to be doing extra work and have to finish another employee work if not he'll write me up but not do anything to the employee who didn't do his job. I go...
As an at-will employee, the supervisor is allowed to treat you this way (with some narrow exceptions). Your choice is to deal with it or quit. Having said that, your military service may be one of those "narrow exceptions". The only way to know is to get a consultation with an employment attorney.See question
There is a juvenile that was sentenced 4 years with no early release with a gun spec. and have already served one year of it.... There was no lawyer, just a public defender. If we hire an actual criminal defense lawyer will it be possible to get...
This isn't TV. Lawyers are not magicians (even though I had a client two weeks ago tell me to "pull a rabbit out of a hat"). Further, criminal defense lawyers LOSE at trial, a lot. It could be true that the PD does not have the time to work the case that a private lawyer can take, but the time to make that decision was BEFORE conviction.See question
Filed for FMLA in late April and was terminated on June 30. Is that legal or discriminatory??
It's against federal law. It's called an FMLA interference and if you win a lawsuit, you get double your monetary damages. Keep good track of the places where you apply for a new job and contact an employment lawyer in your area.See question
If per se, a person contracts out another person to do housework, such as repair and replace a roof, and the person pays in full the amount prior to rendering the services, and they decide to abandon the job in the middle of laying the roofing til...
I agree with counsel. Additionally, I must take issue with your statement "These types of cases are not complicated, and are resolved faster than other lawsuits because the burden of proof is the existence of a contract for services, and what exactly they did under the terms." Never is a case as easy as it may seem. I'm sure the contractor has a different story AND the burden is on you to prove the breach. He need not prove anything. So, there are evidentiary issues which must be analyzed. What are/will be your total monetary damages? Small claims courts now have jurisdiction up to $6000. Maybe you can do this yourself. And finally, getting the judgment is not the hardest part. COLLECTING on the judgment is the pain.See question
Hi, I have a question regarding a bill from a medical office. Prior to going to the office, I called to inquire about fees to see a doctor if I had no insurance. They stated prior to booking any appointment that there would be no charge for the ap...
I am not your lawyer nor are you my client, but this is what I would do in your shoes because this has worked for me. In writing, offer to pay $50 in full and final settlement (address to the person who has the authority to make the decision). If they agree, pay it with a check and get a statement which shows the balance as 0.00. If they say no, tell them that if they take you to collection you will pay nothing, ever. And then be sure to "remind" them that there is now a federal consumer protection rule which prohibits the dinging of a credit rating because of an unpaid medical bill. (It hasn't been rescinded yet as far as I know.) Further, a collection agency needs to jump through lots hoops to verify the charge so be diligent when notices show up so you can dispute it if you want to play with them a bit.
Do this and please message me if it works.See question
my company held a Christmas party with liquor and beer & provided a hotel room 1/2 a mile away and no shuttle transportation was provided, so I drove to the hotel & got a DUI while going to the hotel. Can I take legal action against my employer?
This would be a very hard sell and not enough damages for a lawyer to take the case on contingency. You still made the choice to drink and drive. Further, do you really want to sue your employer? It's not protected activity, so you would most likely be fired.See question
I Had a warrant for not turning my self in the ori I just went to court plead not guilty got set for a continuance in two weeks I don't have any bond or a pv holder
The Constitution provides that you must be given a "reasonable" bond. There must have been an oversight in court unless there are warrants out for you in other jurisdictions. (Are there?) You need a lawyer to get you back in court to request a bond.See question
Court. So no moving violation, sheriff pulled behind me in a gas station without lights on and asked if I was the owner of car. Anyway is that legal?
Counsel is correct. There are lots of issues here which can be analyzed and challenged by an experienced OVI attorney. (There are some really good ones in Cinti.) Be advised, that the "collateral damage" resulting from an OVI conviction can be worse the the penalty of the conviction itself. eg. loss of job, inability to obtain a new job, loss of a professional license. Further, an OVI conviction can never be expunged, so it behooves you to spend the money and hire an attorney now.See question
My husband went back to work and I handle his unemployment, we got behind on bills when on unemployment, so when he went back to work we collected unemployment still for 6 weeks
You know this is absolutely wrong, right? You have opened yourself up to both civil and criminal penalties.
Time to come clean. You can negotiate a payment plan to give back what you took during those 6 weeks. It can be as low as $50-100 per month. I would not tell them why it happened or how it happened--just that you want to fix it ASAP. Better yet, hire a lawyer to do it for you. That way, your communications are confidential and privileged and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services can not compel answers to incriminating questions. Also, a lawyer can smooth the way.
