Request Law Educator Esq Sir, Pardon me is I do not remember

Request Law Educator EsqSir, Pardon me is I do not remember everything well. I am waiting for treatment. I know what you tell me exists. Finding it is another issue in the haze I have to presently work in and the time constraints. Hopefully this will pass. I am assuming the judge will allow amendment of the complaint tomorrow. This may not be possible because of the differentiation it would make in the complaint toward the nursing home in specific. The contract was fraudulent. My brother did not have the authority and the administrator knew it as well as everyone else. The nursing home did not provide reasonable and necessary care or "comfort care" as specified by Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center Hospice. As a result they were negligent and in the end Mom suffered traumatic health depreciation due to not practicing simple care procedures that I would do at home. She never had any of these problems at home because of proper medication and because I controlled her environment. I firmly hold that the nursing home is due my Mom full payment of all they have charged. Before it was all about me. Now with it becoming part of the original complaint I wonder if this could be included. It may be too much for this case and an over complication. If I win I can still file another complaint for these issues. Technically I was conservator of her medical care at that time and using "means testing" I am trained to do empirical proof is compiled that she was not cared for as she would be had she been at home. What do you think? Is this complicating this complaint too much? If I win the proceeds would be enough to take care of her anyway.

Monday it will have been two weeks since filing the

Monday it will have been two weeks since filing the complaint. There has been no word saying it is improper. I am amending the complaint tomorrow upon verification by the Secretary of State. I think I am safe as is with the info as is and it appears therewill be no opposition of court unless it is in the first hearing. Of course nothing should surprise in this court. One objection is they dismissed it and it is the wrong court. The statute has run. That would negate everything if true but nothing that I rememberin the language of the clerk and masters records records a dismissal of the charges. I have not seen the final draft signed by the judge, only the draft by Attorney Stanifer which you have. It only dismisses the retaining order. That means statute runs regardlessif the Stanifer's draft was chosen as final. I will know tomorrow. If they give me a hard time. I have just reason to file another suit on a different compliant.

Hello,I run a yoga studio and have general liability and professional liability insurance. My landlord keeps rejecting the insurance stating:Property Insurance certificate is missing. Your current policy does not provide property coverage. A minimum $5,000 coverage including tenants betterments and improvements, sprinkler leakage, glass coverage, equipment breakdown is required.However, all insurance agents tell me that this is landlord's (owner's) responsibility and they do not offer it to leasers that do not own the property. He is threatening to charge me $25/day that I don't have it.What options do I have.

My son was in an accident over a year ago in August 2014 and

My son was in an accident over a year ago in August 2014 and got representation from an attorney in a large Law Firm within the two (2) required weeks after the accident. He was not at fault in the accident but has medical issues resulting from the accident. His car was repaired and he has continually received medical care since, even after his PIP ran out. He has had to self pay for his medical care since May 8th, 2015. Since the beginning he had problems receiving communications from his attorney. He would call and leave messages but not be called back. About 6 months after he signed on with this attorney he was notified that his Paralegal was let go and a new one was on the case. He still has not received answering messages from his calls to them regarding his case. Now, after a year and one month has gone by, my son has received a letter from the attorney saying that he must immediately seek another attorney to represent him as his case is time sensitive, and then gave him the name of an attorney to call.My question is - Can this attorney - who obviously hasn't cared and or done anything about my sons case- can he be held accountable for his inaction and for putting my sons case in peril?

We have professional liability insurance business.

We have professional liability insurance for our business. Recently we had a client who was unhappy and decided to lie to detectives that we stole their money for a $30,000 project. The client also got $7,900 in chargebacks (Even after receiving 95% of what she paid for). Now as the owner of the business I'm facing two felony charges. Does professional liability insurance cover the legal costs associated with this?

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina doing

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in North Carolina doing Christian based therapy. I am on insurance panels and take self-pay clients as well. I do not take Medicaid or Medicare or Tricare.I am expanding my business to do seminars for the Christian community. These seminars will be on divorce recovery, overcoming eating disorders, practical aspects and recovery from trauma, etc. They will be day-long seminars with a cost of $95-150.My questions:1. I think I need to do an LLC. Could I do this myself through Legal Zoom. I wanted to save my legal fees for my forms review and do as much as I can myself. Is this OK?2. My professional liability insurance covers my work as a therapist, pastoral counselor and "speaking engagements". Should I get another type of insurance for my seminars? General liability? Not sure what kind of insurance to get.3. Am I allowed to advertise my seminars in my clinic office? Can my clients come? Or do I need to keep it completely separate.4. Is there anything that prevents me from tailoring my seminars toward a Christian audience? What protection do I need to be able to offer "Christian based seminars"? I will be doing for-profit business promoting seminars.Thank you!

Incorporations (Perhaps a legal question or??)As a Mental

Incorporations (Perhaps a legal question or??)As a Mental Health practitionerI have an S-Corp and I wonder what is the best way to CLOSE a business. I have only 5 clients left (and they will soon be done). At which point I will be doing work for only one (non-insurance) organization that asks me to evaluate about 5 individuals a year and pay me / individual on whom I do a Psychological Evaluation.Do I have to maintain a business to continue with these? (or just my Psychologist license?)If I have ZERO clients --individuals or organizations-- do I have to maintain the businessjust because I have stored files and pay storage and phone for a reasonable time there-after?What else should I be thinking about in closing a business of this type? I am an Inc. in Minnesota and a Foreign Inc. in state of WA.
