My daughter signed a 1-yr. lease in May 2009. No subsequent
My daughter signed a 1-yr. lease in May 2009. No subsequent lease was ever signed. I understand that this should now be a month-to-month lease. Landlord decided to sell the house so gave her 60 days to vacate, ending May 31, 2016. She moved out May 15, 2016. He's trying to say the lease ended May 31, 2016. We think there was no longer a lease in effect, was now on a month-to-month basis, & she could move out as soon as she found another place without penalties. He never got back to her about keeping her security deposit. He says he had until June 31, 30 days after his notice, (Not A Lease) ended. She says he had until June 15, as that was the date she told him she was giving the property back to him, keys, etc. Didn't he go past the deadline & forfeit all rights to her security deposit?

Hi,My name is***** lawyer handled a criminal case for me 2-4 years ago, and I am still on probation. He has been paid a great deal in full, but does not seem invested in representing me to adjust my sentence now. Requesting and helping me reduce my sentence was what he stated he would do, at this point in time. Again, he seems not to be interested in doing this. I requested a copy of our contract, which he says he cannot provide. I have a copy of the payments he received from me, which again were very substantial ($50,000), though he said he "may not have a contract for me." What can I do to ensure I get the representation I paid for, or if not, see my money refunded?Thank you,Nick
Ray, what is the limitations (if any) subpoena upon an
Ray, what is the limitations (if any) for a subpoena for deposition upon an ex-employee now living in another city (100 miles away) of the same state as the defendant corporation; specifically: notice to the defense; selecting a date (how far out?); and this employee's rights to object, refuse or have counsel, as he is expected to be uncooperative with impeaching his old employer; and the Plaintiff does not want to cut the defense any civil slack that is not required by Fla. R. Civ. P. or statute. (Take no prisoners.) The Plaintiff intends to travel to his new location for the deposition, so there is no forced travel or costs for the ex-employee, other than a couple hours from work on whatever day is chosen.
