Who determines when advice given by an attorney becomes
Who determines when advice given by an attorney becomes extortion? ie his advice contradicts state law & seems intended to purposefully drag settlement proceedings out so that both parties wind up paying more fees. This is a mediation between my daughter & her x husband over property settlement & the husband is in possession of several of my family heirlooms that he stole from my daughters storage unit. he refuses to return them to me because his attorney tells him they are bargaining chips but the reality is they are not marital property and the husband readily admits this but he is listening to his attorney. to me his attorney is only trying to charge more fees by making it more complicated to reach an agreement. This is clearly my property & his attorney knows it has no place being included in the marital property. Again my question is who oversees the conduct of individual attorneys & how do I & my daughter file a complaint against him?

I was sued by a creditor and I didn't show up to my mediation or the recent pre-trial. I made a 50% offer which they refused and made a ridiculous counter offer which I refused as well. The balance currently sits right about $1000. How long after the pre-trial date can they levy my bank accounts?

I bought a vehicle in Texas in 2012 from a small dealer, and
I bought a vehicle in Texas in 2012 from a small dealer, and he told me that everything was fine with the car. I told him something seemed wrong with the wheels, but he said it just needed an alignment. I put 2000 down, but he wanted 4000 down. Anyway, after I bought car, I took to get it aligned and they told me that the car had serious issues because a lot of things were broken underneath the car. I sent letter to dealer and he repeatedly ignored me. I paid diligentily until the last payment was due, then told him that I thought he needed to waive the 2000 because of all the money I had to put in the car because he lied when he sold me the vehicle. I haven't heard from him in a year, but i don't have title. Now, I have Private Investigators calling me and telling me that they are going to pick up the car.

I red a contractor to install an hvac system for $9000 and
I hired a contractor to install an hvac system for $9000 and the installation was a disaster, causing major damage to my house (already paid over $3000) and the equipment doesn't even work. I brought another firm to inspect and quote me to fix it and they found so many problems that they refused to repair it and said I should get rid of it and install a new hvac with a reputable firm. I tried to get the contractor to refund me but he refused so I have opened claims with westchester consumer protection and BBB. However, I just found out that in addition to that, the equipment he installed is not the equipment I purchased (brand and model is clearly stated in the contract) and did a search using the serial number of the unit and found out the equipment was of a different brand (but same manufacturer) and a lower level equipment model (i bought a SEER 16 unit and the one installed is SEER 14) and it is also NOT NEW as the manufacturer registration shows it was shipped to distributor in Sept-2015 (I signed the contract on March-2016 and the unit had supposedly just come out to market) - based on the manufacturer records, the warranty started counting since september so the 30 days labor warranty already expired! Beyond a bad installation and terrible contractor, it seems to me like this is fraudulent criminal act. Evidence seems very straight-forward, the unit is here and I used its serial number, and the signed contract shows clearly that I purchased a different thing. What should I do? Please advice!

The contractor with whom I had a dispute with back in 2012, is just now taking me to court to get money he believes I owe. Is there a Statute of Limitations on this? I have not heard nor received any communications from him since Nov 2012 about the matter, nor has my address or phone number changed since then.
Should the dealership that I bought my car from be liableView more consumer protection law questions
Should the dealership that I bought my car from be liable for $2800 worth of pre existing damage that was just discovered to the car they sold me way back in November 2014? The damage was from an accident that wasn't revealed which had a shoddy repair job with some part secured with a zip tie, yes, zip tie (that broke off, dropped down and was dragging).
