We own a business that sends merchandise to stores via

Hi, We own a business that sends merchandise to stores via dropshipping. Our supplier promised to send goods to our customers on Jun 19 via expedited shipping from China that would arrive approximately 4 days later. We agreed to pay extra for the expedited shipping.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I am in Florida, the supplier operates out of Maryland, and the goods shipped from China. What ended up happening is that the goods were held up at port for a week and a half, and they arrived to our customers around June 8. Our supplier did use Fedex International Priority. However, the goods did not arrive until later than promised due to other circumstances. So, am I obligated to pay his express shipping charges when he bills me for them?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: nothing at all. I just want to make sure I am in the right ahead of time if I refuse to pay the charges.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: He is going to argue that although the shipment arrived to us late, that he still paid Fedex for the expedited service. I am going to argue that it doesn't matter, because the goods arrived late

We rent a high end apartment which has a no smoking policy.

Hi, we rent a high end apartment which has a no smoking policy. Since the day we moved in about 3.5 months ago we've had tenants below us that smoke cigarettes and weed almost every night and party from 10 pm to 6 am (apparently they sleep during the day and have no jobs). We and other neighbors have filed tons of complaints per the complexes instructions with the complexes security guards. The complex came to an arrangement with the tenants that they would move out mid august and buy out their lease rather than be evicted (we have tons of footage and texts from these tenants who've even come to our door). The problem is that the partying and smoking continues to go on every night even though the leasing office has told they must abide by the rules so we continue to document the offenses with the guards and every time these tenants smoke they are fined. In the interim we're getting zero sleep, having our apartment filled up with smoke every time we open our slider door (so we then have to wash our sheets and all our clothing and hair because everything wreaks of smoke -- and I have asthma so it sets it off too) and the leasing office says there's nothing more they can do except fine them for smoking. Is there anything we're missing here that can be done? What are our rights as renters. We've been living a nightmare since the day we moved in and are paying premium dollar for our apartment? Thanks for any insight you can give us.

I have a time share deed that is in danger of defaulting.

I have a time share deed that is in danger of defaulting. The company said that it's better to upgrade or conversion of the contract will remove the deed from my account and I could default on the new contract. I think that he mentioned something about calling it regulatory or something like that. The new contract means paying more money for the upgrade. Is this a good idea? Should I be doing this?JA: Have you thoroughly reviewed the contract?Customer: They haven't made the contract yet; told me to ask any lawyer about the two types of deed deault.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The real story is that I no longer want the property; and get out of the time share. They came up with another contract with more money to release me of the deed which never happened. Ended up with two contracts. Now they came up with a third to release me of the deed again with additional costs to me. This doesn't sound right. Can't get them to understand that I want out of both contract. I think that they are trying to find a better way of getting me to default.

Thank you for helping me out on the phone regarding Contract

Gerald *** Thank you for helping me out on the phone regarding Contract Law / Loan. I ended up getting more money at the settlement conference. The judge was on my side and called him a scumbag (lol) but I had to concede to never speaking his name again. I had to give them access to my FB page for 24 hours to make sure disparagements were deleted. I'm finally picking up my check today! Thank you again! You are a God-Send!!
