Customer Question
I have three questions...

I have three questions regarding different matters of real estate /building related/ City questions. 1. Is it possible to get a citation issued over a compliance issue on a construction site expunged? 2. Relates to zoning on a building whether county is taxing me at one zoning but the City is taxing me at another.

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

3. Relates to filing a formal complaint against a City Employee

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

Yes, Atlanta, GA

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

I mean the details of the case/question but I don't know if I explain that now or later

just to add a few more details, I thought we actually would chat about this. 1) Basically I was pressured into a No Contest Plea on a Citation which I believe I am fully innocent. It was on a job site where I have no responsibility or legal connection to the property or work. The legal fees to fight this in court and the City threatening to add charges led me to settle. I'd like to have the citation expunged from my name but don't know if that's possible.

2. There is a property I own which is Zoned residential by the City of Atlanta. The Fulton County Tax Assessors office is taxing it as commercial however even though it is not a commercial property - and the City of Atlanta does not permit it be used commercially.

I need to understand zoning laws enough to argue this case.

3. I would like to file a legal complaint against the City of Atlanta employees involved in the afore mentioned citation and I'm just not sure if that's possible or what the best steps to take would be.

How long is this supposed to take for an answer? And what sort of supporting documents should I upload? I have many photos, detailed files, tax and zoning maps etc.

I thought I already did all that. This has nothing to do with my question. I know the disclaimer. If I don't have an actual legal response by today I will cancel my membership and request a full refund.
Customer reply replied 16 days ago
No I don't want to be upsold on more services when I haven't seen as much as one single sentence that has absolutely anything to do with my question and already paid monthly dues and other charges. Upsell me once you've actually proven to me this site isn't a scam.
