I was going to pull up my most recent financial plan to cut

I was going to pull up my most recent financial plan to cut and past the exact text but the basic issue I have is that the financial advisor I have been paying for an annual financial plan for many years told me in the last years plan that both my wife and I could afford to retire this year. However after I quit my job, she told me I need to get another job that pays the same for some number of additional years. So now instead of being retired I am unemployed and scheduled to see a psychiatrist for anxiety and depression in a couple days. There was not any significant change in our spending or investments value over the year and a second advisor has since identified errors and unrealistic assumptions on the last two years plans from the original advisor. My question is if I may have any grounds to sue her.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I don't know what you mean. If you mean legal filings agains her then no.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that the advisor is licensed and works for Ameriprise.

I am a dentist and have a story with one particular patient.

I am a dentist and have a long story with one particular patient. He has extensive dental work (something on every single tooth whether filling or crown and root canal treatment) and carries around his dental records from all office he's been at. This should have been a red flag from the start!Anyway, I took him in and did treatment. Before all treatment as I always do, I went over the procedures, risks, alternatives, and answered all questions. After he continued to ask me how to treat a particular problem he had I referred him to a prosthodontist to help in correcting a much more complicated case. This was 2 months ago. From then on, he's not called our office once, but has sent extremely angry e-mails stating his treatment was not done correctly, referencing the radiograph images what I should have done and writing like he is the dentist. He stated how unethical I was in my treatment. He wanted his account credited.He e-mailed and still e-mails 2-3 times a day. Many times writing was garbled in spelling and train of thought. He wanted to his account credited and so he can seek treatment elsewhere. Mind you he wanted his HIPAA voided and me not to speak to anyone about this whatsoever. (Another red flag!!) I offered to retreat but he declined and said he wants to end our relationship and have his bill credited. A month out now, he was threatening papers to be served.We finally credited and zero-ed out his bill. I sent him a dismissal letter (offering emergency services for 30 days of the letter, but he needs to seek treatment elsewhere). A week later, he e-mails 3 different emails all within 30 hours that 1. he's seeking treatment elsewhere, what should he do. 2. Repeat of e-mail #1 basically. 3. Offering me to retreat his tooth (which I will not do due to his initial desire to stop our doctor-patient relationship and due to his mistrust and manipulative speech/thoughts).Do I need to respond to this at all? Personally, I think he needs to move on but something tells me he won't do that and leave me alone. I've given him several referrals which I can't force him to do but if he does not act on them... I'm stuck!I've called malpractice insurance and am waiting on reply but I don't think I will receive any legal advice immediately since a formal claim has not been made.

I recently took my cat in for treatment to a veterinary

Greetings,I recently took my cat in for treatment to a veterinary facility. They recommended that she stay over night. They did not monitor for an extended period of time resulting in her having hypothermia and cardiac arrest. I can prove this with medical records and voice mail. How can I hold them responsible?

My lawyer did not notify me that I had to have the eye

My lawyer did not notify me that I had to have the eye witnesses present at the hearing. He requested affidavits which I provided but then said as we were going into court that they had to be present??? Offered to call our PI he used that was out of town at the time ...but also stated he would ask for a continuance since he couldn't make it in time?!? I had my ex on 4 counts of contempt and 3 where thrown out because my atty said "I thought you knew"??? I paid PI 900. And atty 2500.?!?

Can I sue then nso /c I had their coverage as a nurse during

Can I sue then nso b/c I had their coverage as a nurse during the time I had a formal charge & I could not find an attorney to represent me b/c everyone one of them demanded a $4000-$5000 retainer to handle the case. Then they would turn around & collect whatever the policy pays.I was never told I would have to pay this kind of retainer out of pocket before the policy could actually be used. The whole purpose in buying malpractice insurance is so that it will pay in the event there is a judgement against you.Anyway, no one would take the case. So I plead guilty & signed the court order. Now, I will never be able to do what Texas state board of Nursing has imposed on me. Long story short, I cannot use my nursing license & I live in another state.If I had known this? I would not have even bought the policy. It was worthless. I feel I should be compensated not only for the policy, but what it would have paid the attorney & now what it has done to me financially, not being able to practice as a nurse.I am now in low income housing & just filed bankruptcy. Is this even a case?Dana springer
