He made his own decision that there was a co-owner.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes, but my attorney is good friends with the Judge. This was heard in a real small town and the "good old boy" factor is huge.JA: What advice did they give you?Customer: He did not want to handle this, but he would be on the sidelines if I needed him. Today is the 28th.day. I need to do something now.

A party claimed his attorney couldn't show hearing so

A party claimed his attorney couldn't show for a hearing so he had a different attorney at the hearing who had not filed a substitution of attorney. The court ordered the new attorney the to file a sub of attorney. A week later that same attorney shows up to represent the client at trial with no sub. In chambers the issue arises. The new attorney claims the former attorney isn't around to sign. The judge let's the trial move forward. Is there a motion to be filed to deem everything that happened in those proceedings invalid since the sitting attorney was not the attorney of record and never filed a sub of attorney?

I have been using a debt relief service to negotiate

HelloI have been using a debt relief service to negotiate my credit cards since my income went down 40k in 2 years and a law firm for Discover sued me and subpoenaed me for a court date. I had legal help to file an answer when I was first sued. So my court date was 3/15/16 and I took day off work and showed up prepared to discuss a settlement amount and the judge said she awarded a judgment against me the day before. I'm wondering why I was subpoenaed to appear 3/16 and the atty apparently went the day beforeIs that legal?Thank you

Can a lawyer keep working and billing you you 't want AFTER

can a lawyer keep working and billing you for services you don't want AFTER he has been dismissed and won't let you hire a new one? How can he represent my interests if there is no communication with me and I do not even know what he "did" until I get a statement? He says he is the attorney of record. So? Step down and let my new lawyer do it. Am I not free to determine my own representative?

A credit card debt was not paid because I lost my job. The

a credit card debt was not paid because I lost my job. The debt was sold to a third party and I tried to negotiate with them but they wanted more money than I could afford at one time. They did not serve me with documents properly but yet managed to put a lien on my house. I checked with the county recorder and they said it did not appear to have a lien. They have now sent me a Notice of levy for execution (money judgment). It is being handled by a law firm. the amount is just over 4500. If I could pay I would but I still don't have a job. Is it wise to call them and try to negotiate with them over the phone? What happens to the judgment? this notice says " that the total amount due under the writ less partial satisfactions plus daily interest from the date of the writ until the date of levy".

I am not sure my question is a defamation, libel or slander

I am not sure my question is a defamation, libel or slander issue.Also is my question too long?I wrote a novel, with my past leadership modeled, exposing her ugly behavior.My novel is telling the truth. But she still could sue me for libel.She is a Chinese citizen, I am an American citizen. The novel is about the things occurred in China before I came to the US.I know the laws are different between China and America, please follow US legal interpretation on it.My questions are:1. I distributed my novel just by way of private letters to friends in China, could she still sue me? As I know, in general, only the novel is published on the media then she could sue me?2. If the lawsuit occurs, I do not care how I could win the case, but about if I lose, what will happen?A public apology? Financial compensation? Sentenced to imprisonment? Recover fiction? I do not care about the previous three, only concerned about recovering the novel. The novel may spread through my friend's friend, ... it's impossible to fully recover the novel, even can not stop further spreading.3. Why I do not care about winning the case? Why I do not care about punishments to me? Because China is not entirely rule of law. She can buy a judge, she can threaten witnesses. My intention is to continue to spread my novel as long as possible, my purpose will be achieved. She wins the case does not make sense for her, she will actually "lose" the case, because her ugly things will be exposed.So, my next question is where to play the lawsuit? The United States or China? If prosecuted in China, whether to go through the US court? What does US court do?4. In the litigation, is it possible the plaintiff may not appear, instead by a lawyer? Does she needs a reason to be absent? Can I refuse to attend the court if she does not appear?5. If my novel printing and publishing in paper form, if she sues me, what legal responsibility may have for publishers, distribution and sales organizations? Do I have to compensate their economic losses?
