Two supervisors had a meeting with a disgruntled employee. The purpose was to amend his job duties. We told him to take the documents home and think about it for a week and then let us know. One of the supervisors recorded the meeting

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Two days later, we heard a rumor that the employee had tolf people that we fired him in order to get sympathy

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Oregon

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Since we had not fired him, and had a recording, we decided to terminate him for lying to others in order to turn them against the leadership. We were told by his family that it was not legal to record him

Based on what I have been able to find Oregon is a one party consent state for telephone/electronic communications. Were the communications remote - or in person?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
