Our family has a special need trust for our two brothers.

Our family has a special need trust for our two brothers. One is autistic and the other has mental illness. Now that our mother is has dementia, my siblings and I are trying to move them closer to us. The real-estate agent said that I might want to check with the lawyer for the special needs trust to see if there are any issues with selling their current home. I called the lawyer, who wrote the trusts. I had two phone calls - in total about 45 minutes. During these two phone calls, he answered my question with opposing answers and spent the entire time talking about the tax pros and cons - not the legal question. He did not say that he was going to charge me. I felt that he was servicing his product. A few weeks later, he sent a bill for $1,100. He then called me. I have been staying with my brothers to work on the move and told him that I did not know that he was going to charge me so much, but wanted to keep the peace with the person who wrote these contracts, so offered to pay in 4 installments when I got home. Within 2 weeks, he served me. I was served just after I got home from the airport.I feel that:1 - I was mislead, as I did not know I was getting charged.2. He has been unreasonable with his price and timeline (less than 30 days since the bill).3. On principle, I feel that he is a bully. I want him to not do this to someone else.Should I1. just pay him,2. demand a hearing, or3. demand a jury trial?

I was in an accident Nov 25, 2015. I was driving down a thorough fare just off INt. 5 in Sac. 95831. I was driving under the speed limit. There are slight curves in this road, it is Riverside and follows the River. I could see the top of a white car, but could not tell IT WAS NOT MOVING in the right hand driving lane.. By the time (seconds) I could see it was not moving, I stood on my brakes, but could not avoid crashing into the parked car.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: It was not just not moving, it was parked in the right hand lane and the driver had abandoned it there.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I am in California, there was a police report, which claimed it was a straightaway, which it is not, and that I was driving too fast for conditions. It was a perfect day, the only condition was, a driver parked his car in the right hand lane and abandoned it.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: State Farm took this case to arbitration, believing they would win, but because the police report said it was a straightaway , they lost.

I have a complicated case that has been in court for 6 years

I have a complicated case that has been in court for 6 years I hired a company to get my annuities from the insurance company. The insurance company has fought it in court and all the money is in the the court registry for 5 years. Now the company has hired a lawyer for arbitration against all respondents I'm not the only one there is 3 other parties with the same insurance company that did the same as I did so we have been in this case together. Through the years we had 2 lawyers appointed to us but they pulled out for conflict of interest or they we're going to be sued. I live in a different state than everyone else and have tried to seek consul but on one wanted to touch the case or they wanted more money than was in my annuities. Now the lawyer wants a retainer from us parties I haven't had any contact with anyone other than emails about the case for 5 years. Do I have to do anything? The company is saying we breached our contract I don't believe I did.

Is there a time limit as to how a judge has before answering

Is there a time limit as to how long a judge has before answering a letter. For example, I have just been involved with a legal matter and was already conceived. But the opposing party is unsatisfied with the court Judgement Order and is now, writing a letter asking for permission for a motion to reconsider. On the other hand, my attorney have made our reply letter to the judge to deny the other party's letter, but to this day, still no answer from the court. The Judgement was entered on June 1, 2016. The opposing party's letter to the judge was filed July 07, 2016 and our letter was sent June 17,th 2016.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MinnesotaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No the only thing filed after the entry of the judgement order were the two corresponding letters to the judge.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, during the actual date of trial, the judge gave the parties two choices: A. Do a receivership or B. continue with a Binding arbitration without the right to appeal. We choose to do a binding arbitration without appeal, but apparently, the other party is trying to make light of the issues already presented in court.

My fiancé recently was arrested from my condo for domestic

My fiancé recently was arrested from my condo for domestic battery. This is the 2nd time in 2 years that the police have been called to the property, he was not arrested the first time it was simply from noise due to fighting.He was banned for a year and we abided by that.Now they are saying through an attorney letter that he is banned permanently due to incidents of violence.Is it possible for an association to do this on a permanent basis??
