I'm getting sued tree removal There was a verbal agreement

I'm getting sued for a tree removal There was a verbal agreement that the tree company would pay the insurance deductible when I told them I could not afford to pay them the 6200.00 they quoted to do the tree removal work. We included verbiage on the written quote "Ins. to pay" I signed and they signed. The Ins company wanted a amore detailed receipt, so they added some general items they said would be doing and I signed it and turned in to Ins company. No Ins to pay was on that receipt. The Ins company paid me the total value less the deductible, and I in return paid the tree company the 3000. that the Ins check was for. They took check never said a word and cashed it. about a week later I got a notice from the court saying they were suing for 3000.00., that the 3000.00 paid was a deposit. Whats my options or chances?

I am a resident of DC. I have had an intake appointment

I am a resident of Washington DC. I have had an intake appointment for legal assistance. They are currently on vacation for the next three weeks. I asked them what should I do if the company should call me in the mean time. The intake evaluater said that it was extremely unlikely that they would callback. Well, now they are calling constantly, I don't know if I should ignore their calls or take them (and what should I say if I should take the call?)Please adviseI bought an Easy Rest Bed; my problem is with the salesman. I originally wanted to put down $1300 and have a 2-year contract. He said it was easier for us if we only put down $150 with a 48-month contract (Then we wouldn't have to struggle). I signed the contract not understanding what an article 78 loan was, until I made my 1st payment of $2500. My balance remained just short of $6000 dollars. I have a very credit score I would have been able to get much more reasonable payment optionsI called customer service and learned that 48 months of interest was placed on my balance upfront, Therefore; extremely high interest is paid first before the principle. I know that I signed the contract; however the salesman was dishonest and this can't be legal. At the very least the contract should be amended to my original requestI called the company back and explained the situation. I told them that I was willing to make another payment of $1300 to be paid directly toward the principle and switch to a 2-year contract. The supervisor said, “the salesperson is an independent contractor and you signed a contract.” I said he still works for you and he was deceptive. If he does not work for you why then why were no other financial options made available to me other than to pay the full balance upon delivery? The supervisor said they don't make changes but that they would get back to me next week just the same.The contract says that disputes are settled in arbitration governed by the laws of the state where purchased. I believe this is a predatory loan. I should have been offered a better contract or at the very least the contract should

Can you tell me the requirements of a level 2 sex offender

Can you tell me the requirements of a level 2 sex offender in New York State. I have a lake house that I share with a cousin who is married to a level 2 sex offender and is registered. I want to know what he can and cannot do. There are plenty of kids around that are in and out of the camp. I feel that they may keep some of his regulations away from us so he can come. Also, there is plenty of alcohol in the house and people drinking. Not him, but others.

Who do you contact about a parole officer who is mistreating

Who do you contact about a parole officer who is mistreating a felon for DWI. Her normal parole officer is on maternity leave and this new parole officer is making her jump through hoops just because she can and also the money for all the different things. The felon is a single mother, who stop drinking years ago. This parole officer is riding this mother so hard that she is so depressed and I am afraid she might just go over the edge. Please help. I wouldn't ask but I can't afford a lawyer.

My 21 year old daughter, Mendez, was arrested this morning

My 21 year old daughter, Morgan Mendez, was arrested this morning for parole violation.Morgan attended a 35-day drug rehabilitation program, at Blue Ridge Rehab, from February 2016 until March 2016. At the end of the program, her Therapist recommended that Morgan continue treatment at a 90-day rehabilitation clinic, in Lubbock Texas: Tree Haven at Dovetree (20K for 3 month rehab and sober living community). Upon immediate graduation from Blue Ridge, Morgan left for Texas. When she arrived on April 6th, the councilors at Dovetree attempted to contact Morgan's GA Probation Officer to coordinate a state-to-state transfer of probation. They were unsuccessful. After many calls, they reached Officer Brown and explained where Morgan was and why. Officer Brown simply said, Morgan should not be out of state. They continued weekly to contact Officer Brown, but was unsuccessful.During the duration of Morgan's stay at Dovetree, she did amazingly well! She flourished in therapy, passed twice-weekly drug tests, attended daily NA Meetings, and obtained a job (in which she was able to save 3K). Morgan did so well, she has decided to reside in Texas, and attend Texas Tech in the Fall.On Tuesday, June 21st , Morgan called Officer Brown to inform her that she intends to stay in Texas, and wanted to know how to transfer probation. Officer Brown informed Morgan that if she did not report to the Cherokee County Probation office before 8am on June 23rd, with proof of rehab, that she would put a warrant out for Morgan's arrest, for violation of parole. Morgan purchased a $500, one-way, plane ticket, and worked with Dovetree to gather all documentation she could proving why she was in TX. She was even able to obtain 3 letters of reference, on letterhead, from Therapists, the Dovetree lawyer, etc.This morning, we reported to the probation office, where Officer Brown arrested Morgan immediately; as she had already filed the warrant on May 26th.How does this happen? How can someone be arrested for doing the right thing? I understand Morgan should not have been in Texas; however, we were literally at a crossroad and did what it took to save our daughter.Any guidance you can provide, we would appreciated.
