I am from Louisiana. My wife and I were shopping in Walmart

I am from Louisiana. My wife and I were shopping in Walmart and we paid for our items at the self checkout. The cashier manning the self check out even helped us with some of our items because it was slow. We used the Walmart Pay app which is a digital payment and you get a digital reciept a few minutes later. As we were leaving the greeter asked to see our reciept. I told her it was on the app and continued.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: She then told my wife that she had to see the reciept. My wife told her that it was digital and that we couldn't provide one. The greeter then turned to some plane clothed loss prevention person and told them that we were "walking out with merchandise" this man approached me aggressivly and to be honest scared me because he never identified himself. i thought this large man was about to attack me. he told me that i had to go back in the store. I told him I wasn't. He said he was going to call the cops I told him he could I then proceeded to my car. While I'm loading my groceries he read my license into the phone as if he was on the phone with the police. Not sure if he actually called.JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: My wife stayed at the door because it was raining. By this time quite a few people were staring. My wife told the greeter that she didn't appreciate what she was insinuating. The lady said "I don't appreciate what you're insinuating either"JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My wife then said "What?" and the lady said "You know what you're doing..." she pointed at my wife and said "you know". This was in front of people.

A lawyer once told me not to get into something until you

A lawyer once told me not to get into something until you know what it's going to cost. Good advice. Why so secretive? Let me know, I am ready to make a payment if it sounds reasonable.JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I am asking what your charges will be.JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.Customer: I'm in California. I will be executor of my couosin's will, when he dies (he is 90 years old). He has little money; about $40,000 in an IRA, and about $40,000 of credit card debts. In other words, the credits and debits are more or less a wash. He also has a house with a large mortgage, which he is leaving to me via TOD (acceptable in CA). He will sell the house, and expects to have something left over for him after paying off the mortgage and sales expense. He has been told that the money from the IRA cannot be used to pay off the credit card debit, and that the creditors will come after the profits from the house. I find this ridiculous but need to find a knowledgeable lawyer who will disabuse him of this misinformation. Are you the person?JA: No. I'm the Lawyer's Assistant.Customer: I recognize that, I was just speaking metaphorically to the ephemeral lawyer. What's next?

I contacted this site about 45 minutes ago. The response was that I would be in contact with a lawyer. I dot know if I was to pay the $5.00 charge at that time, or wait for a secure site to give my credit card infoI have not received anything since then. Am I still connected to your site?I live in the State of Florida, where my husband died 4 months ago. In his Will, written when we lived in CA, he named his son as executor and left everything to him. Laws in FL differ from CA, and I believe I am entitled to 1/3.of the estate. At this time, I'm just interested in 2 items: one, a bank statement with no co-signer, an no beneficiary, and two, a Life insurance policy with either of the above either.The son has been notified.of the need for those two items to go throughProbate Court. He has taken no action, saying he's going to " check it out". He wants to see if he can circumvent the Probate, an just keep the money to himself. Can I sue him if he doesn't act within a "reasonable" time ?( 6 months) I contacted the Life Ins company yesterday, and was told he had already applied to have the Polict transfered to his name. It was temporily denied until he gets a "seal" from The bank. Apparently, he can then get it placed in his name. I explained to the agent my problem, and asked that he put a hold on that request until it goes through FL Probate. What are my options in this matter?
