I am searching for any Ca codes or Regs on Diminished Value, any help is appreciated. Thank you, Jackie
You need to provide more information as to the context of your question. Specifically, what are you attempting to discern? Do you need a definition?
Legal definitions of terms of art do not always come from the code or regulations. They may also appear in case law, as is the case in the most common usage of "diminished value" in automobile damage or tort damage cases.
Otherwise, if you are just looking to find a place where the phrase, "diminished value" appears in statute, it appears in Public Resources Code, section 4790, subsection (i). It does not appear as a phrase in the California Code of Regulations.See question

You need an administrative law attorney who has experience representing professional licensees. At this point, it is likely you need to file either a (1) petition for reconsideration, (2) petition to set aside, or (3) petition for a writ of administrative mandate and request for stay in Superior Court. More than likely, option 3 is what will be required to "fight" the decision. More information about a writ of administrative mandate is included in a link below.See question
I have a 1 battery, 2 dui, and 2 hit and runs - all misdemeanors and all over 7 years ago and no probation and restitutions have been paid.
Seek expungement of your cases under Penal Code section 1203.4. As per Assembly Bill 2396, licensing agencies, such BRE, "cannot deny a license solely basis of a conviction that has been dismissed pursuant to Section 1203.4…of the Penal Code." This is now found in Business & Professions Code, section 480(c).See question
An attorney filed a lawsuit against his client for $15k unpaid legal fees in limited jurisdiction but failed to serve notice under B&P code 6200-6206. Is a general demurrer on complaint likely to prevail?
B&P Code 6201(a) clearly states that the "Failure to give this notice shall be a ground for the
dismissal of the action or other proceeding." So, a motion to dismiss appears the most appropriate.
However, keep in mind that there are some exceptions to the above rule. The notice is not required when:
1. The attorney is seeking to initiate contractual mediation/arbitration.
2. The client is seeking affirmative relief against the attorney for damages or otherwise based upon alleged malpractice or professional misconduct.
3. Disputes where the fee or cost to be paid by the client or on his or her behalf has been determined pursuant to statute or court order.
However, assuming that those exceptions are irrelevant, then you should be able to move forward with dismissal.
Keep in mind that this may just result in the attorney voluntarily dismissing the action, serving the notice, and then filing suit thereafter. So, if you want to seek arbitration of the dispute, you may be better off meeting-and-conferring with the other side about stipulating to a stay of the lawsuit until the arbitration is completed.See question
I asked to meet with my lawyer via email two weeks ago. I then sent a certified letter requesting a meeting since I receive no response. Another week has gone by and still no response.
I think further information is needed to truly answer this question. For example - what type of law, what status of the representation, do you have a signed fee agreement, whether the attorney is charging you by the hour.
Generally, I would recommend calling the attorney and following up in writing requesting a response by a certain date. Then if the date comes and goes, terminate the representation, in writing, by letting the attorney know that you are terminating them for being non-responsive.
In the mean time, try to identify a new attorney who can take over your matter if your attorney fails to respond. Ideally, this person is identified by your deadline so that you can swiftly shift your representation to new counsel.See question

If the offer of employment was accepted and the contract signed, then you should have an enforceable agreement.
However, terms can be placed in the written agreement that alter the normal offer-to-acceptance-to-actionable dynamic. For example, many contracts include a provision that makes the agreement/contract only effective after the offering party signs the written agreement. So, you would have to review the contract in greater depth to know for sure.
Then there is the whole "legally liable" quandary. Are you done negotiating? Is the relationship irreparable? Then asserting your rights might be something you are interested in doing. But that would mean threatening to file a lawsuit. You wouldn't want to threaten a lawsuit with someone with whom you wish to start a new employment relationship.
Furthermore, there is the whole issue about damages. How have you been damaged? Depending upon the terms of the agreement, their may not have been much certainty in compensation. Or, termination of the agreement may have been at will. Furthermore, you might get a job tomorrow that pays at - or even above - the same as was offered. Thus, you would have no real damages upon which to pursue.
So, the general answer to your general question is likely "yes". However, all of the details matter as to whether that "yes" switches to a "no" or "so what" pretty quickly.See question

We have 4 kids and we are not divorced. The case is under my husband, but I have not received any legal documents stating for mediation, let alone for divorce. Is this possible to do?
Your question as written is a bit vague. For example, who is the email correspondence from? Is is from your attorney? Is it from the opposing attorney? Is it from the court? However, there could be a couple of possibilities at play here:
1. The Court might be contemplating ordering its own mediation. The Judge has inherent power to do so. And so, they may be asking for dates that work for you and your husband as part of that order.
2. Your attorney could be contemplating seeking mediation. Thus, your attorney would want to know when you are available.
3. Opposing counsel could be contemplating seeking mediation. Thus, your attorney may simply be answering the question of opposing counsel, who is in the process of petitioning the court to order mediation.

The question on the application is attempting to determine what type of non-profit corporation you are seeking to become. Thus, it is not an either or question. Rather, you can have a public benefit purpose or a public benefit and a charitable purpose. The difference is that for the charitable purpose, you would be receiving and managing tax deductible donations to your business to help it attain its public benefit purpose.See question

Your question is vague, as written. I am not completely sure what you are seeking. However, I assume by MRL you mean Mobilehome Residency Law. If not, then my answer will probably not be very helpful.
There is no law that specifies that you must provide proof of registration of your mobile home to the park. However, the law does state, repeatedly, that you must comply with "reasonable written rules and regulations of the park," which were given to you at the time of starting your occupancy within the park. So, I would presume that the requirement you provide a copy of your registration is within those rules.See question
