My landlord has no interest in helping solve this problemJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Virginia. But this isnt an employment issueJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: About suing the landlord for negligence and the tenant below us for slander, yes.

I red a contractor who owns s own one person business. We

I hired a contractor who owns his own one person business. We signed a contract with my sister as a witness. It doesn't state a start date or finish date but those were expressed verbally. In two weeks he has done one hours worth of work and is very unprofessional. I decided I wanted to find someone else to do the job but he is now refusing to give me the deposit back (4500). I told him I would pay for the time he did work. No supplies were bought or anything. Can he legally keep the money?

Short form: How do we evict friends from our home in

Hi..Short form: How do we evict friends from our home in Nebraska who will not move out and find their own new place? We just want to sell our house. We are living in Indiana currently.Starting in April 2015 we have had friends house-sitting for us (in Omaha NE) while we started slowly transitioning to a new home near out of state family. In May 2015 our friends said they were soon getting kicked out of their apartment complex due to mold in their building. We verbally agreed to allow them to live in our large home until they found a new place and just pay us whatever they were paying for their apartment. Our mortgage is around 1380/month and their rent was 555/month (both without utilities figured in). Since October 2015 we have been telling these friends verbally and in emails that we want to sell our house and they need to be moved out.Frustrating for several reasons!!Greg

I am a resident of DC. I have had an intake appointment

I am a resident of Washington DC. I have had an intake appointment for legal assistance. They are currently on vacation for the next three weeks. I asked them what should I do if the company should call me in the mean time. The intake evaluater said that it was extremely unlikely that they would callback. Well, now they are calling constantly, I don't know if I should ignore their calls or take them (and what should I say if I should take the call?)Please adviseI bought an Easy Rest Bed; my problem is with the salesman. I originally wanted to put down $1300 and have a 2-year contract. He said it was easier for us if we only put down $150 with a 48-month contract (Then we wouldn't have to struggle). I signed the contract not understanding what an article 78 loan was, until I made my 1st payment of $2500. My balance remained just short of $6000 dollars. I have a very credit score I would have been able to get much more reasonable payment optionsI called customer service and learned that 48 months of interest was placed on my balance upfront, Therefore; extremely high interest is paid first before the principle. I know that I signed the contract; however the salesman was dishonest and this can't be legal. At the very least the contract should be amended to my original requestI called the company back and explained the situation. I told them that I was willing to make another payment of $1300 to be paid directly toward the principle and switch to a 2-year contract. The supervisor said, “the salesperson is an independent contractor and you signed a contract.” I said he still works for you and he was deceptive. If he does not work for you why then why were no other financial options made available to me other than to pay the full balance upon delivery? The supervisor said they don't make changes but that they would get back to me next week just the same.The contract says that disputes are settled in arbitration governed by the laws of the state where purchased. I believe this is a predatory loan. I should have been offered a better contract or at the very least the contract should
