Customer Question
I need to chat...

I need to chat with a ca. litigation attorney or one that knows the vehicle impound laws in 94601 well?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Ca.

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

Only the police report I understand.

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

I don't know why the send button is not responding when I try to paste my additional info?

I have an impound hearing at 11am to recover my car that was impounded by police while lawfully parked on a public street when I was not present. I had been towed there by CHP rescue Tow from the nearby freeway when my car over heated some days prior and when I returned with a mechanic my car was gone. My note in the dash with my name, my circumstance and my phone number was ignored. I was lawfully licensed, registered & insured, with no outstanding tickets (all was verified by police). I blocked no driveway, hydrants etc. and no signs were posted warning of anything. The law states the police must send the registered owner a notice by return receipt before they can lawfully tow. I did not get any such notice. The burden is on the police to prove they had probable cause to tow and that they have the authority to tow or not to tow and must act with discretion when doing so.
I am disabled on a fixed income and can not afford to pay anything THEN seek to recover, so when I am facing that hearing this morning, how do I present myself to compel the hearing officer to do the right thing by me?

I appreciate the time you took with me to call and discuss my writ of mandate on appeal. I will be calling Just Answer again very soon to ask your opinion. I will have no hurry worries next time like I did before my hearing 3-8-18, I can say the hearing denial gave me a lot of insight and information I would have never been lucky to learn if not for that denial. Now if I can find the way to give you 5 stars above I want to do that. Perhaps the submit button will light up when I hit send. Have a great weekend Legal Eagle. Thank You again..

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.

I recently Hired a contractor for the shed and the driveway.
I recently Hired a contractor for the shed and the driveway. He gave me two quotes. I agreed with the price and pay him up half upfront for each task. Three weeks into the project he only managed to completed the shed. For the driveway he only did partial. I gave him a deadline. A week later he admited that he cannot get the permit for the driveway. I have pay him upfront $2000 for the driveway, and he only managed to get a form about 250 square feet. No concrete has poured. So I expected that he owed me some money after paying him for his partial work on the driveway. Can I use the remaining balance for this unfinish driveway to pay for the remaining balance I owed him on the shed? Thank you for helping … read more
