Hello! I am a CA licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. Because I want to provide you with the most accurate answer possible, do you mind if I take a moment to review your question?

Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

Thanks so much for your patience. Generally, in California, if you are going to be suing a municipality for injury to your body, you have two years to do so according to the Code of Civil Procedure (Civ. Proc. §335.1.)

Ask Your Own Legal Question

So, if this happened any time after March 7, 2016, then you will be fine, but just keep that in mind if you need to bring a lawsuit in an LA county superior court. Did you have any other questions for me regarding this?

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.

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.
