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) 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.

We were out of town in mexico. The person watching my dog asked if she could bring her over her house. I said yes, but to keep her separated from another dog who lived there. My dog pushed the door open while the other dog was in their back yard and bit the dog. Now the owner is asking me to pay the vet Bill or else she threatened to go to the authorities. I paid her half, but she wants more. What is my legal obligation here?

I received a civil action summons with a notice of lis

I received a civil action summons with a notice of lis pendens and a notice of intent to record a claim of lien.I am not supposed to be on title to this property... it was part of my MSA with my ex wife who I haven't talked to in 9 years.I dont care about a lis pendens... not remotely, I care about a judgment for the unpaid HOA fees. Is any of what they are filing against me going to leave me with a judgment if I dont fight this? Or can they additionally file a judgment against me once the lis pendens is file/complaint/lien is recorded.Also.Since I was supposed to be quit claimed off the deed and never was... is this something a judge can look at if I were to appear before them? This is a clerical issue, nothing I did to myself... I gave her this condo so she'd leave me alone.Any non-legally binding thoughts you may have would be nice.
