I would like an attorney to answer this. Other than the one

I would like an attorney to answer this. Other than the one who did. Because, he said "I think you can do that". But, he could not read the Automobile policy. I have AAA auto insurance with my car. I paid my yearly premium. Allstate said they can give me an automobile policy that I could use with Uber or Lyft. This would give me a chance to get some earnings. Can I get two automobile policies for my car. How would Allstate know if I have a policy with AAA and visa-versa? Somebody on the internet said that you cannot have two automobile policies in California. What is the answer? Can, I have two automobile policies? And if I can. Could you read the Allstate policy for me. To see if I would be protected properly if I used it for Lyft or Uber.

I had a divorce finalized in 2012. My father referred me to

Good Morning, I had a divorce finalized in 2012.My father referred me to Glen Bradford of "The Bradford Law offices" in Edwardsville, Illinois since he was his attorney at the time for his business.Never personally meeting the attorney since I live in North Dakota, spoke once on the phone, the rest was through email which was once and U.S. mail.The bill was to be paid through my fathers attorney fees through his business, why I didn't think I owed anything to the attorney, just my father.Today as of 02/27/2017 I received a Bill of $3,724.00 for the attorneys services.I received no prior bill these past years, why this is such a surprise to me!My question is 5 years later a bill? With no prior bills before today? No phone call or emails from his office?Why I assumed any fees would of already been paid.I tried going to their website www.Thebradfordlawoffices.com. The site is no where to be found.I live in North Dakota for the past 5 years, I cannot go directly to the business to ask questions.I tried calling the number on the invoice(###) ###-#### It rings and rings, no receptionist.I find it strange after all these years a bill, no website to be found as its stamped on the invoice.What should I do? My husband of 4 years told me it's a scam, North Dakota is misspelled on my address on the invoice and envelope. ( North Dekota ).I asked my Father who is 86 years old, but he cannot remember unfortunately. Sometimes forgets who I am.I'm afraid to ignore it in case it is a true bill.It has all my true information of the dates and divorce.I'm afraid to just send out a check for $3,724.00, Being 5 years later.I'm disabled and my husband works very hard for our money, why this money means a lot to us.Thank you for your time,Cheryl McDonaldJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? Because the Lawyer will solve your problem quickly right now and for a fraction of the cost of seeing an in-person Lawyer. Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I live in North DakotaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, has not been reported

I am a Family Practice physician and signed a contract to

I am a Family Practice physician and signed a contract to practice outpatient only family medicine at a clinic that has an Internal Medicine physician. and two nurse practicioners. The attached hospital admits patients, but the emergency department physicians are the admitting physicians. There are limited services that can be accomplished here, and more complicated patients that need admission must be transferred to the nearest larger city. The hospital also supports a wing that functions as a nursing home. The hospital is part of a different system from the clinic in name, but the clinic, hospital and emergency department last year were rebuilt into one large, modern unit. I was just hired and told I could practice however I wanted. I indicated I just wanted to do family practice outpatient, office only. I was told this was fine, and signed on.I was told yesterday that the Internal Medicine doctor who is part of the clinic system and the larger hospital system is leaving. They knew he was leaving before I signed on but did not tell me. He was Chief of Staff for the hospital, Chief of Staff for the nursing home area of the hospital, supervisor for the two nurse practitioners and (as noted) an Internal Medicine physician. His patients are very complicated, and very, very ill. I was told I would have to assume all of his patients. And I am wondering what else they are not telling me, but what they will expect me to do because I will be the only physician left.This is not what I was told would be my practice environment. I was told I could be outpatient only Family Medicine and not supervise anyone, not be responsible for the nursing home, and had no expectancy of caring for the other doctors patients. They knew he was leaving and did not tell me. I just started. I will have to pay tail malpractice insurance if I leave before 5 years.I chose this practice because of the option of less stress, and now it is a mess. I don't know what to do! I move from one state to another for this job. I maxed out my money and have no reserve just to pull out and walk away. I feel like they cheated me. Advise?
