My property management company was contracted to take

Hello, my property management company was contracted to take pictures when listing the property for rent. They were also supposed to conduct inspections of the property every six months; they did not do either and the amount I was able to rent for suffered. Does this breach of contract entitle me to damages for lost rental income? I was only keeping them around until they finished processing a tenant eviction through to judgement, but it has been two years and they cannot explain why that has taken so long either. Do you think that I have a case against All County Community Property Management? I was going to report them for ethics violations with Property Management Boards as well, thinking that might help. Thank you for your time.

My ex live in girlfriend, is a blackjack dealer at a local

My ex live in girlfriend, is a blackjack dealer at a local casino. I live in Las Vegas. During our extremely short term relationship, during a fight, she called and initiated a chargeback on a purchase we had mutually agreed on. This lead to a domino effect, because the transaction was for about $1800 and was to China, to purchase toys, as I had taught her about a business reselling item during christmas time. When she initiated this chargeback, it lead to my account being frozen for months and to this day I have restricted access, not to mention the contact that was extremely profitable refuses to do business with me anymore.The ex-gf signed a notarized Affidavit to cancel the chargeback and under the portion of "I am now accepting this share back with paypal because of the following circumstance" she wrote "This transaction was completed by self".Now, I'm upset, because my college degree is in ethics, and I feel very strongly about right and wrong, and she literally called a financial institution, created a false report, then had a change of heart, and ended up signing the affidavit admitting to canceling the chargeback because the transactions "was completed by self".She is licensed with the Nevada gaming commission as a blackjack dealer, I am wondering, what if anything I can, or should do given these circumstances, I feel it is wrong that she can make a false report, that I am still feeling the repercussions of to this day due to her whimsical nature.

I am suing my landlord eviction and the return

I am suing my landlord for constructive eviction and the return of my security deposit. That landlord was using two businesses to conduct his personal home rentals. Both businesses are LLCs. The judge has already heard the motions to dismiss due to partnerships and agreed that as he is a member of both and the organizer of the main one, that I had the right to sue him and both businesses. Tomorrow is the real hearing. The lawyer says he is trying to protect the partners in the other business - the business he made me go to to pay my rent and where he conducted all business transactions with me. My issue is my hearing is tomorrow and I just learned that this lawyer is the organizer of another LLC where the main partner from that business he's trying to protect is a member. I feel this is a conflict of interest. What do I tell the Judge tomorrow? I've printed out all the LLC documents from the WV Secretary of State's website proving this.

I have a few different questions, Ill start off with. When

I have a few different questions, Ill start off with.When I was 12-17 I worked with my mom face painting company. She kicked me out 6 months before i turned 18 due to not liking my guy choice. She took away my car, clothes, everything. So, I opened up my own face painting business. She lives in KY, but her business is registered in Ohio. She told me I could open up a business in Dayton, Columbus, or Louisville, but nor around her because it's against the law due to a verbal contract, (Which never happened by the way).So, first question1. is it against the law for me opening up a competing business against her since I worked with her under the age of 18?She has continued to contact me about me helping her, but tells me to forget it she can't take that I am her daughter and competing against her threatens to talk to a lawyer, then ask for my help a month later and then threatens me again.Second part, she tells me my website is a copy of hers, but totally different than hers, colors, pictures, everything.... While working with her we did events, so I did put those on my websites like you would a resume.... She contacted me telling me to remove them that it is illegal for me to put those on, so I did.... Even though I talked to someone and they told me 1) since I was underage I was not bound by contract and 2) it's like posting your resume.3) Am I allowed to post past events I did with her? (I most likely won't just because I am trying to avoid conflict with her. I was just wondering.4)Third, Being Search Engine Friendly I use words like Cincinnati Face Painters, Cincinnati Face Painting, I included those in my site. Now, her business name is***** by Jen, so on my pictures I posted I titled them as Enchanted Face Princess Parties. Her name is ***** ***** a LLC and DBA as Enchanted Faces by Jen. Once again when she told me to remove it because it is illegal for using her business name on her website, I did..... Once again to avoid conflict. But, Her name si registered as Enchanted Faces by Jen, Not Enchanted Face Princess Parties.4. Is it illegal to use search titles as this?Overall, She hates the fact that her business is suffering since she kicked me out since she doesnt have someone to do the work load she was having me do for the price. So, Have I done anything illegal? I have told her that I am going to put a restraining order on her if she continues to contact me and threaten me.
