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

My question is if my brother in law can legally take any

Hi,My question is if my brother in law can legally take any action under the following circumstances which I'll put in bullet points:-Brother in law, Tom, works in Immigration. We don't really get along together.-Sometime last year he approached me for help with creating a website for a chapter for Fraternity of Police website.-everything is documented via email or chat correspondence with Tom from this point on as he is in NY and I am in California.-He said most developers were charging him 2000 dollars or more to make. Since he was family, I told him I'll get a basic frame work of the website to him. No written contracts or agreements or payments. He bought a private domain (non-government), sent me his login and password ***** told me in the email to put things up.-I made a website and uploaded privately first to my own domain (where it's still up) to show him what it looks like. When he was satisfied, I uploaded to his server that he provided the links of.-Recently again, we had an ugly fallout, I took it down.- Now he is threating to sue me. He has no evidence if I took it down or not. Here are the final exchanges before I blocked him:Tom: You took it down didn't you? I don't care what you have time for, if you took it down you have broken the law. You forget that it is for a police club and I am going to inform the president of the club that you shut it down and if there is any legal recourse against you. You don't want me to text you? Change your number then. I will also inform our attorneys for the club. I want it back up in 24 hours.I am also going to inform the host that our website has been hacked by you.Me: Don't bark. Ill sue you for harassment. Do not threaten me about the police. I don't think its very lawful. I am blocking your number.Tom: Go ahead and it's not a threat. What do you know about law? Try to sue me!!!!!-Again, I have everything documented that he voluntarily gave me his password ***** told me to do it, did not pay anything, no contract etc.

My daughter graduate Dec. 2014 and in June 2015 consolidated

My daughter graduate Dec. 2014 and in June 2015 consolidated all her Federal loans (140K) with SOFI now paying $800+ a month. We are getting a lot of phone calls about her possibly moving her loans to something that would allow her to pay less per month and after 120 months get loan forgiveness. She is an RN working for Baylor Hospital. Is this REAL? she wants to do the right thing by paying her debit but if she really would qualify for this forgiveness it would be a great burden off her shoulders. But we don't want some scam deal.

In 2007 I bought a $50,000 second on a property through a company called Spartan Home Loans. They make "B-paper" loans. Recently the property went to foreclosure sale. Asking price $56,000. There is a $55,000 first and the first payment is arrears $12,000.Spartan Home Loans transferred "ownership" of this property to me. I assume creditors could try to collect from me. This "debt" could also reflect poorly on my credit rating.Spartan Home Loans will not answer my calls or e-mails. I reported them to the Better Business Bureau but the BBB said they did not respond so they cannot do anything

I purchased (&had installed) a heat pump at my house in

Hello,I purchased (&had installed) a heat pump at my house in 5/2011. The AC company that installed it handled the regular maintenance on it. In 2012 it started having issues. By 2013, there was a horrible intermittent smell that would come out of the vents. The same AC company did their regular maintenance check and said it was fine. No smell at that time. By 4/2015 the same AC company was called because my system was not working. They replaced part of the systm and it worked a couple of days. Then it went out again. This time the compressor & condenser was replaced. I kept having to miss work because of this. Then it went out again in 10/2015 missed work and they added freon. Then it went out again 12/2015, valves sticking and clogged lines in my wall banging around! On 1/2016 had to call them again because the compressor sounded like it was gojng again. By the time the tech got there Monday the temps cooled down and system was acting ok. It crashes when the temp gets high and it has to run alot. Now the weather here in FL is almost 100 again & system is completely dead again. They say it is trash in the lines again and they need replacing. I talked with another AC company and he spoke with the District Manager of the makers of my heat pump. He pulled all the paperwork on my system and said it should've been replace years ago. I feel the company that installed my AC may just be replacing parts until my warranty runs out! I am going to meet with the owner tomorrow about all of this. I requested a copy of all my records and warranty (I did not receive a copy at instalation they kept it so they could register it). I received a copy of the work receipts. No copy of the warranty yet. What should I do?

My ex-employer is sleeping inside his franchised ice cream

My ex-employer is sleeping inside his franchised ice cream store, taking money out of the paychecks belonging to people working shifts where cash may be missing, not giving pay stubs with paychecks, not serving correct ingredients (therefore not complying with corporate contract), having his fourteen year old son serve ice cream and work for no pay in his store, refusing to send me a replacement final paycheck when all I did was lose the original, then sending me a paycheck with no signature, therefore making me waste my time and gas to drive to the store and get him to sign the check, which I haven't done yet, and demanded that I compensate money missing, which I refused to since I am innocent from any theft but still gave $38 as it was much less than what was initially demanded.I don't want the few workers, especially the poor fourteen year old kid, still working there to suffer my past boss's antics; is there something that can be done to change things? Should I contact a health inspector? How I should handle my final paycheck situation?
