City of Polo patrolman punched in the eye off duty. I chose not to defend myself, or pursue charges and I'm now suspended with pay. What's my options here.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not with the States Attorney far as I knowJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Only thing is I was caught kissing another man's wife but off duty which is why I was punched. I'm also married having problems at home for about 1 year. There's no conduct policy as far as off duty is concerned. I think its also wrong the Alderman that brought this to the attention of the city board is the best friend of the suspect that punched me. So huge conflict of interest here.
I have a case here in California. A conflict arose between
I have a case here in California. A conflict arose between the defendant and the insurance company. The defendant would not sign a waiver, and a Cumis counsel was brought in. However, the insurance defense attorney, who is actually an employee of the insurance company, continues to conduct discovery on behalf of the defendant, who she can no longer represent because of the conflict. Is this permissible.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?Customer: California.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Cumis counsel was brought in. Since that time, however, the insurance lawyer has continued conducting discovery on behalf of the defendants, despite the conflict.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Don't think so.
May the wife of a lawyer who is a notary sign a POA in the
May the wife of a lawyer who is a notary sign a POA in the state of Maine? Is there potential conflict of interest there?JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And just to clarify, what paperwork has been filed?Customer: Durable Power of Attorney, State of Maine, with the Principle with diagnosed with Alzheimers.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: There are presently 7 lawyers involved. The POA was just released to opposing lawyers approximately 5 months after it was signed. I am a Registered Nurse who will not hire a lawyer, yet have taken my Mother out of a situation where she was being financially exploited, as well as physically abused. Very complicated.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Essentially is there a conflict of interest for the wife of this lawyer who prepared the POA, who obviously was aware of my Mother's declined cognitive level, to notarize this POA? It was asked for for month's and then just produced at a hearing which was about Probate issues. Again without going into all the sordid details, I have gone this route so I do not have to spend hours researching codes of conduct for both lawyers and notaries in the state of Maine. I am not looking for legal advice, just information that I am sure is available to me.

We are planning to start a staffing agency for veterans. In a nutshell, we will hire them and place them in a job queue. When hired, they will be put on company health insurance. Some of them will suffer from addiction. Our plan is to send the veterans to treatment before placing them, their completion of the program being a requisite for job placement after.We have marketing contracts with treatment facilities which pay us a flat monthly fee to refer clients to them for treatment. Any money paid to us for marketing goes directly into a bank account and will solely be used for veterans' continuing care. The company will be a L3C.

I was in family court today and the opposing lawyer lied to
I was in family court today and the opposing lawyer lied to the judge. The scenario is such, my lawyer could not make it today, I went in with opposing party to get an adjournment date. The opposing lawyer took this opportunity to say to the judge that I have not submitted any paper work to my lawyer, which is an out right lie. The judge actually got angry with me. I feel this is perjury, or similar, that the opposing lawyer can say a lie and have the judge have a bias against me. I want this rectified so the judge does not have a bias against me. What can I do?
I showed up for my small claims hearing in upstate NY court.
I showed up for my small claims hearing in upstate NY court. The other party was not present. The judge presided over traffic court and then small claims. My case was called. The other party was still not present. The judge informed me that he would have to recuse himself from my case because he is the owner of the initial repair shop that serviced my used car. I bought a car from a dealer a couple counties over that after a state investigation it was determined the seller knowingly sold me a defective vehicle.My question is does the judge's recusing himself, and subsequently passing my case on to potentially two more judges, trump the fact that the other party failed to even appear at the hearing? I wonder why I wasn't awarded my case by default?
I have a complicated case that has been in court for 6 years
I have a complicated case that has been in court for 6 years I hired a company to get my annuities from the insurance company. The insurance company has fought it in court and all the money is in the the court registry for 5 years. Now the company has hired a lawyer for arbitration against all respondents I'm not the only one there is 3 other parties with the same insurance company that did the same as I did so we have been in this case together. Through the years we had 2 lawyers appointed to us but they pulled out for conflict of interest or they we're going to be sued. I live in a different state than everyone else and have tried to seek consul but on one wanted to touch the case or they wanted more money than was in my annuities. Now the lawyer wants a retainer from us parties I haven't had any contact with anyone other than emails about the case for 5 years. Do I have to do anything? The company is saying we breached our contract I don't believe I did.
