Husband is out of town for work and has a c traffic court date and missed it can I go for him in afternoon court on the same day as original date
In general no. But, in Traffic Court, or in the clerk's office, they may allow you to appear for a limited purpose to make payments or, possibly, reschedule the hearing. Please understand that a missed Court date may result in suspension of his license or a warrant for his arrest.See question
I did not hear back from anyone last week. I am referring to a live chat I had with an operator named Gabby, who did an extensive intake. I realize it was a short week because of the holiday, but I spent a lot of time with her. Because I am in so ...
Some of these "call now" buttons go to shared operators and not to actual lawyers. I gave had offers for such services that I turned down because I cannot control the operators who may be giving legal advice in addition to gathering information.See question
I have a default judgment against a horrible woman. This woman is crazy & quite paranoid with literally a dozen security cameras on her house (per the deputy sheriff). She filed a motion to vacate my default judgment based upon an allegation tha...
You're correct that it is likely that the Court will grant the Motion to Vacate the Default. One of the normal requirements in District Court is that the party seeking to vacate the Default h has some chance of winning a case on the merits. If this is a simple case with no issue of material fact that would, likely, be subject to Summary Judgment, a District Court Judge would not be likely to Vacate a Default.
In my understanding of Small Claims Court, you would only be entitled to costs at the end of the case. You could ask the Judge to require some sort of Bond as a condition to vacating the Default, but I don't know if she would.See question
in 2004, and 2006 when my daughters born in California I put my sister info in their birth certificate. I live in Las Vegas now and I don't know what to do
If they were born in California, you'll likely need to file paperwork with the State or Court there to correct the birth certificates.See question
I'm filing a complaint against a contractor who had an old judgment against me that I have already paid off a long time ago through garnishment. The new lawsuit I'm filing against him is for negligence and is unrelated to the old collection lawsui...
Best to keep the two cases and issues separate. You can ask the contractor to stipulate that the Judgment in the other case has been satisfied and/or file a Motion seeking that the Court Order that the Judgment was satisfied.See question
I was recently in a car accident where another driver blew a red light and hit my truck. I have had multiple MRI's done and have numerous disc bulges in my back as well as tears. I also had to have surgery on my shoulder. My medical bills are well...
A few questions to discuss with your attorney:
1. Is there any other coverage available from the other driver? For instance, there might be more coverage available if the driver was using someone else' car or was driving in the course and scope of his job.
2. Does the other driver/owner/employer have sufficient assets to cover damages in excess of the available coverage? It's rare, but I have had it happen a few times and was able to get more money than the available policy limits.
3. Do you, or the car you were driving, have any applicable coverage, such as Under Insured Motorist or Medical Payments Coverage that might compensate you?
4. Is there any health insurance that can cover the bills? While you may end up having to pay health insurance back, it's, typically, a lot less than paying the doctors.
5. What kind of discounts will the lawyer and medical providers offer in order to get the case settled with some money going to you?See question
I had a car accident, and I immediately contacted a lawyer. I have never been in an accident and the man that hit me immediately started pointing fingers and saying I was at fault. A few days later, his insurance company completely accepted liabil...
Has there been an offer from the insurer? If so, the attorney may be basing his fee on the contingency portion of your Fee Agreement. If not, you should get an accounting of his costs and fees. While the attorney may have only spoken to you three times, there is other work that has been done including writing letters to medical a providers and insurers.
The Fee Agreement should set forth an hourly rate. Even at $400.00 per hour, the Attorney would have to have put in 12.5 hours of work. Most Attorneys I know bill in .1 (six minute) increments. I have seen one that I can recall who billed in .25 (15 minute) increments so doing a standard letter that takes a few minutes to review would be billed at $100.00 rather than $40.00 per hour.
Hope this helps.

I have 2 cases from 2 different accidents I was in. One case is for 100,000 and the other is 1,000,000 and they are both about to settle. The loan I had before was only 2,000. My lawyer said there's no reason I should be denied but yet I have been...
Yes snd yes. But, as another said, look for another, less expensive, source if you can. Also, the denial can be for many reasons. Perhaps your Attorney has not supplied sufficient information. Perhaps the lenders see weaknesses in the case.See question

It's not unusual for insurance companies to dangle a carrot in front of an injured victim before anyone can know the extent of the damages. You should seek the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer to determine your best course of action - especially in a case such as yours where the insurer will claim you could not have been hurt.
Hope this helps.
