This question is for law educator, Esq. As you may recall, I was DPOAHC for my mom, who passed in June, 2016. The local lawyer is DPOA for finance of items in mom name : house contents; bank accounts; storage facility items ; safe deposit , and now probate . 1) I am remainder beneficiary of trust ; property sold to relative of founder of law firm ( no relation to current lawyer) 2) empty house now for sale. Four attorneys said to get probate/estate lawyer independent of this re: fiduciary breach and self interest ; ALL in agreement I am entitled to trust copy and accounting of what is going on. I did contact one but haven't heard back yet 2) updates: new trust advisor , who does communicate , says they are going to close safe deposit; look at and appraise storage contents ; the worrisome issue:,I signed probate waiver ( more forthcoming) and the probate judge sent letter outlining % of what lawyer (s) would get including a percentage of trust assets . 1) How can I speed up reply of attorney I e-mailed to take a look at this? Would a letter from out-of -state attorney help ( laws are different-can't advise) 2) Am I entitled to get a complete financial accounting from all parties of everything including trust assets and bank accounts as well as what has been spent ? 3) they want me to come back and go thru storage of things I want; if items are to be sold , can I bid on them ? Thanks

The school district that I work scheduled a meeting to

The school district that I work for has scheduled a meeting to discuss my accommodation plan with the following people in attendance: the HR director, an HR area specialist, the special education director, a special education supervisor and the principal at my school. One of those people will be my evaluator. I am wondering if that many people need to be privy to confidential information. It doesn't seem like that many people are on a need to know basis. Please advise. Any help appreciated.Also: The last SPED director was very inappropriate verging on intimidating during the initial meeting so I am a bit gun-shy. Also, when I submitted my doctor's update to the plan, the man assistant HR director that I turned it in to mentioned previously having had to do a "fit for duty" assessment and subsequently needing to "let her go. Not that that is what is going to happen in your case...."

I do business throughout the United States via the net, but

I do business throughout the United States via the net, but my client notarized contracts specify: "Governing Law, Venue, Severability. This Contract shall be governed by the laws of the State of California and both parties hereby expressly waive trial by jury in any action and stipulate and agree to enter into mediation proceedings in California."I have Muscular Dystrophy and have worked from home for 19 years using a virtual office to receive mail and packages. Someone in the virtual office received services from a New York client who apparently moved to Florida and sued my company. My company was apparently served June 15, 2016 via this virtual office staff and they failed to notify me. As a result, I missed a pre-trial conference in Martin County, Florida on July 5, 2015 and a Default Final Judgment was entered against my company for $2,363.50 on July 6, 2016. I received a copy of the judgment via mail yesterday.What can I do?

We are renters in a home. We had a washer installed by Rent

We are renters in a home. We had a washer installed by Rent A Center, that had a defective hose. The first floor was flooded and had to be completely torn up. We were not able to occupy the home, we work from home and home school. What are our best options to recover losses, especially those that aren't quantifiable (wages for self employment, having belongings delivery delayed, etc.)?

I live on the third floor of a new apartment complex on Arrowcreek

I live on the third floor of a new apartment complex on Arrowcreek Parkway. The person(s) living directly below me on the second floor, play their music so loud that my floor actually vibrates with the bass sounds. It booms at various hours, including 7AM, the afternoon, and evening hours. I've reported it to the office 5 times and it continues. I work from home and have blood pressure issues. This noise is very disruptive. What can I do?JA: Real Estate issues can be tricky and expensive. The Real Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this.

I am a landlord, signed a lease with a woman on the 21st,she

I am a landlord, signed a lease with a woman on the 21st,she started moving things in - on her application she listed references I called they were good- I asked her for her current landlords number she texted me the number I call to get the reference - it's good - BUT- I found out on the 22nd that I had never talked to her current landlord, she lied to me - I called her on it she broke down crying and said she had lied about it and told me that she wasnt working as an RN like I was led to believe she was working from home for her son. She told me to discuss it with my husband and let her know if she needed to get her things and move out. (I should say that I went to alot of extra expense letting her move in a week early trying to get it ready. Anyway, I gave her deposit and pet deposit back and kept one months rent. I live in WV, my lease covers her breach of contract.JA: The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: not yetJA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Just that I have since spoken to her current landlord and he says that she has not paid a full months rent in 3 months and has a lease with him til July or August - and I guess a copy of my leaseJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
