Is it any kind of misconduct that the same public defender

Is it any kind of misconduct that the same public defender defends the same client in two different felonies? We were told the delays in the trial are because anyone having anything to do with the previous case was deemed to have a conflict of interest. But the same lawyer is outed in the case notes.

I shared an uber account with my spouse. Now I am going

I shared an uber account with my spouse. Now I am going through a divorce so I asked uber to refund the trips that spanned one month that was charged to my spouse's card and then charge it to my card. Uber has charged some of my trips to my card but not all of them. They have avoided my requests to give me a receipt or something showing that my spouses card was refunded. They still have yet to honor that request. Uber has disabled my account and now it is deleted so I cannot pay supposedly what they say I owe. I do not understand how I owe money to Uber when I asked them to charge my card. I am assuming that the money that is owed is what is left on the balance for the total amount of trips but they wont tell me that and since I cannot log into my account how am I suppose to pay. I asked to speak to someone over the phone and they keep telling me they do not offer phone support for this. Can someone please assist? I feel the only way is to get legal representation. I have the emails back and forth and my receipts. I printed out all the trips before my account was disabled and I have my statements showing what they charged me. Can I sue? This has been dragging for over 2 weeks for something as simple as refunding one card and charging the other.

I have a rental management company in new york state that

I have a rental management company in new york state that moved a tennant into my house, failed to do the checks prescribed in the lease and only after the tennant had not paid rent in 4 months did the management company figure out that the tennants had vacated the property and there were squatters in my home. They allowed the squatters to stay for another 60 days utill I threatened to have them removed by law enforcement before they actually forced them out. Additionally there is a significant amount of damage to my home. A lot of this could have been prevented if the management company had done its job in accordance with the lease which required checks on the tennants and home. So Im currently out 5 months rent, damages, and im still losing money since they havent even initiated repairs and cleaning to prepare the home for new tennants. Is there legal recourse against the management company for mismanagement?

I red a lawyer to take over a law suit I had brought to

I hired a lawyer to take over a law suit I had brought to federal court pro se. My lawyer has failed to expose opposing counsel for missing discovery deadlines, and even though they were sanctioned once, the opposing side did something else to misrepresent the defendent they were representing. I have begged my lawyer to expose to judge. He won't...I find out now...that my lawyer was represented in a legal malpractice suit by the opposing counsel .....isn't this a conflict of interest? It certainly has affected the outcome of my case!!!!

I lawyer handled a criminal case 2-4 years ago, and I am

Hi,My name is***** lawyer handled a criminal case for me 2-4 years ago, and I am still on probation. He has been paid a great deal in full, but does not seem invested in representing me to adjust my sentence now. Requesting and helping me reduce my sentence was what he stated he would do, at this point in time. Again, he seems not to be interested in doing this. I requested a copy of our contract, which he says he cannot provide. I have a copy of the payments he received from me, which again were very substantial ($50,000), though he said he "may not have a contract for me." What can I do to ensure I get the representation I paid for, or if not, see my money refunded?Thank you,Nick

I am a pro se Cross Complainant in a civil lawsuit. I am

I am a pro se Cross Complainant in a civil lawsuit. I am going to serve a motion to compel on discovery (she ignored all of my discovery requests), an opposition to the demurrer, and a motion to file an amended cross complaint. (I already amended it once.) The cross defendant just substituted out and now has an attorney. Before I filed my motion to compel, her new attorney filed an opposition to my discovery that in my opinion, makes no sense.1. Since she got legal representation, now do I serve the cross defendant or her attorney?2. Should I file the motion to amend the complaint or wait for the demurrer? When she was pro se, we had a very cursory meet and confer and she refused to give me a chance to amend.3. I would like to ask that her lawsuit be dismissed as a sanction for ignoring my discovery request. Do I do that separately, or in my motion to amend?I know it is three questions; I will give you a tip for a reasonable answer. Thanks.
