I have a concern that bothers me due to the very definition

I have a concern that bothers me due to the very definition of client-attorney relationship. I have asked for a free consultation to a potential case and fill out a brief explanation of the case online. The attorney called me and asked me to send the medical records to her to see if, I have a case or not, tough she also stated that does not mean that we have a client-attorney relationship established. As I considered a normal reaction of thought, that throws a red flag to me because if, this attorney decides no to take my case for whatever reason, she would have knowledge of all my information regarding a potential case. I think it could be detrimental for my cause if, the information she was given access to, without a client-attorney bonding relationship, could end up in the wrong hands meaning the possibility of that attorney to know the party I'm trying to bring a lawsuit. Any insight will be deeply appreciated.

We signed a contract on Saturday for Solar panels, for a total of $35,000 we contacted the salesman on Monday and told him of our intention to cancel. He was very obnoxious and said we could not cancel. We live in Houston and I thought were covered by the 3 days right to rescind.

I have a question regarding the NACI and employment

Hello: I have a question regarding the NACI and employment verification. For one of my employment, over 5 years ago (just barely) I put the date I was taken off payroll by the company and not the date I technically actually stopped working. Should I contact the investigator to change what I put and how culpable will that make me look? Or does the NACI only contact places you listed on the SF-85 going back the 5 years as indicated on that form?

In Florida, board meetings have to be posted and condos.

In Florida, board meetings have to be posted for HOAs and condos. Seem to me that includes meetings with the board attorney. I am pretty sure our board attorney is having the board sneak away to meet with him. He told me years ago when I was on the board we simply sneak away. Now I don't believe that. He can't just tell the board to sneak away and not give notice, at least telling owners they are meeting with the attorney, can they?

I signed an employment agreement with my company when I

I signed an employment agreement with my company when I first came on board. Since then my title has changed from PEO Sales Professional to VP of Sales and Benefits. The company that I originally signed my employment agreement with is no longer the same company that I am currently paid through. They moved this back in January. They are now asking me to sign a new agreement and I do not want to because of bad practices that I am witnessing. Is my old agreement still valid with the old company name?

I want to report an egregious criminal to his employer but

I want to report an egregious criminal to his employer but I want to protect myself against any defamation charges so my good samaritan act doesn't blow up in my face. I could send an anonymous email, but doesn't everything online get traced these days? And doesn't an anonymous letter lose legitimacy? How do I go about reporting this dangerous individual without turning my own life into a living hell?
