You mention you cannot get anyone to work on this case; have you tried out of county attorneys? I can provide you with legal information as to the issues, but am not able to personally represent you. Is that what you were looking for?
I see; I thought you were looking for substantive information pertaining to the rights of the homeowner. Let me opt out so someone else can assist you on this that may have more information available.
Ray a new expert here.
You should consider a new lawyer here and an change in direction.If your lawyer has not done anything on this case in a year that indicates as you state they are trying to force resolution.You have the right to have the matter set for hearing on the merits.I do not understand why a Texas lawyer would do nothing like this on your behalf.
You have right to terminate the lawyer, hire a new one and a get a trial setting here.You should not be denied your right to a day in court and get some resolution.There is no chance of a settlement unless you get this set for trial and moving forward.You can terminate lawyer by letter and asking for immediate return of your files.
You can locate a new lawyer here through our state bar.
I can do unlimited chat here, not yet set up for phone calls, wills send you offer.
The lawyer and his staff including notary are your best witnesses here.They all new him and his capacity at time of signing and his desire that you have the property.
You may consider a bar complaint against your old lawyer once you change lawyers.
I am totally concerned that your lawyer has not deposed the lawyer or his staff to prepare your case here to support the deed.That would be the next step in getting this ready for trial.These are witnesses that support you and also may induce them to settle here.The status quo is not acceptable where the other party is living in the house and yet you are paying taxes.A change of direction is needed.
The dead man rule here is bound to be an issue whether this deposition is allowed in as evidence if you were not allowed proper cross examination..
If you can positive rate it is always much appreciated.
The Dead Man Rule here in Texas may allow your lawyer to object to the deposition if your lawyer was not able to cross examine them, here is reference to that.
Trish you are so welcome.I sent you an offer for additional services.If you accept will answer any questions and all questions you have here.It is not a problem.Thanks again.
