My boss fired me through email with accusations of

My boss fired me through email with accusations of manipulation and negatively influencing his daughter, she has a disability. I was her caregiver for 1 year. His words," I was made aware and a witness to the fact that you have been manipulating and negatively influencing ____." He addressed my name, Hi _____. He carbon copied 4 other people, 2 co workers, his other daughter and another care giving business owner that I have no affiliations with. He sent it from his full time employers email, one of the largest banks. Now the 2 other coworkers wont speak to me, no returned calls or text messages. From reading the defamation, libel, laws. I feel I have a good case. His accusations are not true. When I asked him what happened he did not respond. Can anyone give me some law advice?

I'm looking lawyer to help with a case against foreign

Hello, I'm looking for a lawyer to help with a case against foreign airline.We are looking to file a lawsuit against Royal Air Maroc airline.My wife's mother was traveling from Sierra-Leone to Jamaica and transiting through Morocco and Brussels (BE) for our wedding. Although she had a boarding pass from Morocco to Belgium she was denied to board by airline staff without a valid reason.My wife spoke with one of the airline's staff and they told her that her mother will be in the Brussels airport for more than 24 hours and she needs a transit visa.According the Belgium and Schengen visa policies this is not true as well as she was not going to stay more than 15 hours.The airline staff (Transit manager) took her passport from her and refused to return it. This prevented us from buying another ticket for her to attend the wedding.We would like to be reimbursed for flight, hotel and moral damage.The questions are:1. How likely we will win this case?2. If any lawyer agrees to help us on a contingent fee?Thanks!

My car was rear ended by a commercial vehicle at an

My car was rear ended by a commercial vehicle at an intersection while I was waiting for the traffic to clear to make a left turn. The individual left the scene of the accident after hitting me. I was able to get the name of the company the was inscribed on the vehicle and an identity description of the individual driving. Once the police arrived they took my version of the accident, called for EMS service, waited until they serviced us and asked that I pick up my report in 3 days before he parted. Once we were ok I went to the store location to report the accident. (I also informed my insurance prior to leaving the scene.) When I got there I spoke with the store manager on duty who informed me that the officer had not long before me had completed an investigation and the individual and vehicle had been identified. A week later I now have a copy of the police report. I notified my insurance once again to follow up with procedure because my insurance only covers liability and comprehensive damages not collision. Long story short the insurance information noted on the police report for the second driver cannot be located by the code provided. In other words the info is invalid. I've been in touch with the company a couple times to retrieve info but thus far nothing. My question is what would you recommend as my next step before I attempt to go any further. Meanwhile, my vehicle is in no condition to drive.

Almost 2 years ago I was in a car accident. There were no

Almost 2 years ago I was in a car accident. There were no tickets or summonses issued. Myself and the other driver denied medical attention. A car merged quickly into my lane and I overcompensated hitting the other cars driver side rear fender. There was very little damage and the accident must have been no more than 5-10 mph. Now she is during me and the company I was working for fir personal injuries, lost wages, emotion psychological stress. They claim I am unfit to drive and pose a risk to society. The truck I was driving was owned and insured by my employer. The suit defendants are myself and my former employer. New York is a no fault state. Do I need a lawyer or does my employer go through his insurance.

A new couple, our neighbor of 4 yrs, has started using our

A new young couple, our neighbor of 4 yrs, has started using our property on the other side of our fence which belongs to us since last year. When they purchased a dog (an Alaskan husky) he has dug numerous huge holes under our fence which they have placed a 12 x 12 patio blocks on top of.We allowed them to attach their fence to ours 3 yrs ago if they maintained the hill on their side of fence which is our property. Now they think that's their property. All they were supposed to do was mow an weed whack to remove weeds, etc. but which means we can't access the other side of our fence now. (U an aware of the 7-year law that if a party/person uses your property for 7 years it becomes theirs..I'm a retired legal secretary having worked for law firms for 25 years. Now, with all those lawyers out there, I can't get any help from anyone!!!Can you help us.

I was in a car accident. A minor one - roughly $1500 in

I was in a car accident. A minor one - roughly $1500 in damage. I was driving on a side street when a driver pulled out of his driveway and hit the front driver's fender and wheel. I am a 27 year single mom and I had my two young children in the car. The driver, a older bigger male, jumped out of his car and proceeded to yell at me. He asked why i didn't see him ( I should have asked him the same question but was too afraid). I said I did not know I was looking at my speedometer. That is what went into the police report. To the point; I only have liability insurance and his insurance company is refusing to pay out. My thought is that he hit me as I was driving down the street? I do not believe this is a fair settlement, and my insurance company is not willing to help since I do not have collision. Any advice?
