Q. My mother is going to be in long term care. We live in a manufactured home together. It is in her name. There is approx.
A: You may want to talk with an estate planning / elder law attorney. There are ways of achieving what you're seeking, but buying it for what is owed is not one of them.
Q. Purchased a used vehicle 11/23/22, problems arose after further research about the vehicle history. Can I get a refund?
A: Unlikely. Is this a private seller? This is a classic caveat emptor situation: until the point where money and title changed hands, you had the ability to investigate, and either negotiate for a lower price or walk away. Unless the seller warranted, guaranteed, or promised you something, I think you might be stuck.
Q. Do attorneys in a city tend to avoid taking preexisting cases where an attorney has been let ago even if it has been win
A: I agree with Mr. Morris' observations. If there is a mediated settlement, what would there be for another attorney to do? If you entered into an agreement, you can't just change your mind and decide to fight on, even if it is a "winning" case. Your new attorney would be stuck with that same agreement.
