I will make this a short as possible. Two years ago my daughter was pulled over for speeding. The police officer was behind her but did not activate his lights until she turned onto a second road. He issued two speeding tickets since it was two different roads. When she went to court, they said she could lose her license. She agreed to a non moving violation... which was a misdemeanor. They said it was no big deal just pay the fine. Fast forward two years, she went for an apartment, and the landlord asked her if she had an altercation with police because it says non traffic related misdemeanor. Is it true in Pennsylvania it will leave her record after 3 years or should we try to have this expunged? I'm afraid this could even put her in danger if she is ever pulled over by police.JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PennsylvaniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: This is already on her record. It happened in Feb of 2015JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's it thanks

if a person owes me, lets say, $25,000 (plus interests). If that person finally paid me only $20,000 check with a statement "Take it or leave it" -like remark if I sign that check. I sign and cash that check anyway (think that better get something than nothing). Can that person legally do that and I will be out of $5,000 (plus interests)? Or, can I sue that peron for the difference? Thank you.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I got it in writing and in email. but I didn't have enough "legality" on print to file a lean on that person.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so.

I attended an achieved my JD from an ABA law school, worked

I attended an achieved my JD from an ABA law school, worked for the Fed. Gvt. 22 yrs, retired to be Mediator & Binding Arbitrator; IT'S VERY difficult to get cooperation from judges, and attorneys! I tried to connect with an ATTY. or firm when I would need 100% pure ATTY. signature or for review prior to an action, again am ignored! It's also recommended I ask a court to confirm my awards in order to "collect" debts, or attempt to confiscate property for non payment for services- which has become A problem! I need an ATTY or FIRM to review Any serious action, or to attempt to collect on debts, or prior to attempts to confiscate property due to non-payment for services; I believe with Binding Arbitration I have the authority to Subpoena, have right to send a sheriff or Marshal to collect property in lieu of cash or payment for services performed; Where can I get free Baliff & Clerk appearance to work for my newly founded Bench Justice NFP; I work hard for legitimate Arbitration services, hate to come to drastic means for collection process, but am I right- as Mediator. / Binding Arbitrator I have Subpoena authority, can seize property, and feel I need to be persistent to find an ATTY or FIRM who would be willing to work with me, support any case as needed representation in court i.e Guardianship/Conservatorship, Probate issues, etc- I get it that ATTY 's dislike Mediation/Arbitration, but there is room for all & people in need- Suggestions?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? The Lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: If you question is back to me- I commute between Iowa ( tough rude State) & Missouri (easier to find potential clients) -I deal only with Dispute Resolution, Civil Law, many times "other issues " come into play- Felony etc, I refer or do best can to offer what I can, but Missouri seems better for certain situations, both states have their problems- Judges in Iowa have been so predictable for "attitude" & Missouri ATTY rather not respond or hire for an hour or two as "consultants" I held off collecting on debts till after holidays - trying.to be understanding-;but have to begin collection process - yet have to stay "ethical" & legal ; can't get clients to acknowledge they have nice everything just don't know how to budget & get in trouble; only "cas" filing" is with newly founded Bench Justice- for award- but collecting may be stymied!JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: If say this site is understanding to Mediato/Arbitrator & would be willing to offer opinion before I proceed I'm looking for legal support in my area of expertise in Iowa & Missouri- no.matter what say or do I get "attitude" from ATTY & Judges- do you or can you refer me to a knowledgeable, ATTY for assistance. & collection?

I am a management consultant in Houston, Texas. I am designing a contract template for my practice. I want to include an "alternative dispute resolution" paragraph where I indicate that if there is a dispute, the parties of the contract will use a mediator or arbitrator to resolve the issue.I also want to include a paragraph in the contract that limits my liability to the total fees that the client will pay me for my consulting services.Is an "alternative dispute resolution" paragraph in conflict with a "limited liability" paragraph?Thanks,Charles

I got an answer to a question I posed this past Saturday to

I got an answer to a question I posed this past Saturday to one of your real estate attorneys regarding a dispute I am having with my HOA Board regarding the removal of planting pots from our front yard. There are no guidlines or provisions whatsoever in the CCRs addressing such an issue. Instead the Board claims that there are"standards" not included in the CCRs because" not everything can be included in the CCRs! The Board sent us a letter to remove pots from our front yard by January 20th or face a hefty monthly penalty. Now I need to write a letter to the Board informingJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: I need to write the Board requesting mediation or arbitration as delineated in the CCRs as we disagree with the Board's action. Can you write me such a letter to send to the Board? My state is CAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: nothing has been filed in courtJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just need a fellow up with the previous attorney if possible
