Second opinion] My mom was served with a Partition of Real Property. She was coerced into signing a Quit Claim Deed and was promised he would pay her half the value of the Condo,which he never did. He moved out after he left her completely broke. He borrowed thousands of dollars from her and has never paid her back a dime. My question is -- *can he force her to sell? *can she sue him for half the value of the condo? *can she sue him for the thousands of dollars he borrowed for campers, motorcycles, boats, etc.? *Is he responsible for half the HOA fees and taxes?

This question is for JoyceLaw. I signed a contract with a lawyer to provide expert services. The lawyer asked me to limit billing to $7,500, oral contract. I assume so he could bill his client more. My understanding/expectation was that a) he would limit his billing to $7,500 when I hired him and/or that he would credit me for unbilled work, i.e. quid pro quo on equivalent hours. Furthermore, his activity on his bills does not equate with the conversations. And he changed his mind on an issue resulting in it appears lots more hours charged. I paid $8825 to-date. He has billed me $3775 more. I have problems with $2425 of those bills. What are my options. I would like to speak with JoyceLaw.
