    I got already 3 surgeries on my lower back For erniated on L4-L5. I was diagnosed with chronic sciatic nerve damage of my right leg. My leg is weak and painful. What do you think

    James’s Answer

    To determine whether you should take the lump sum, one must know how much longer your work-life expectancy is. Contact any competent worker's compensation attorney for assistance with that determination.

    You do not have 30 days. If you are no longer a tenant at the property, your vehicle can be deemed to be illegally parked and towed immediately. Additionally the attorney above discussed issues of abandonment. You should move you vehicle immediately.

    There are more attorneys than you can hope for who simply responded to your question. Call one to discuss your situation. It appears that you have already identified one of the key factors in pursuing a party, collect-ability. Good luck in your pursuit.

  • Are there any lawyers in the Phoenix, AZ area that will help with a debt suit that is for only $900.00?

    This is a credit card debit.

    James’s Answer

    You may be best served by filing a small claims suit. In that environment, you generally need not worry about attorneys getting involved, the paper work is minimal and the setting is much like that of People's Court, which should not be too intimidating for you to handle. In the alternative, you can schedule a consult with an attorney, they will discuss your matter and the fees that go along with attempting to pursue the funds you are allegedly owed.

    Indentured servitude and slavery have been outlawed in this country for about 160 years. If you performed authorized work you have a right to payment. Discuss the practical nature of what is expected of you with your supervisors if they have a problem with your schedule.

  • I'm making a settlement offer to oc, do I have to serve it on them, or can i just email the offer?

    I'm trying to settle a personal injury accident, and we are in litigation.

    James’s Answer

    Settlement offers need not be formal, however any communication you make to settled should explicitly cite rule 408 as to prevent those efforts from potentially being used against you later.
