24 Questions Answered

Q. What kind of a lawyer do I need for a vandal case?
A: Options: 1) If you have insurance coverage you can make a claim with your own insurance company and pay the deductible. 2) If you have proof such as an admission, video or witnesses or saw the event yourself you could make a police report and hope they do something. If she is criminally convicted she would have to pay restitution for the damage. Or, if you chose to forgive her, you could accept a civil compromise and just let her pay for the damage. 3) If she has insurance such as a homeowners insurance policy, she may have coverage for negligence. Insurance will not cover intentional torts. So, if it is possible she was negligent, her insurance would likely cover if you allege negligence.
Q. How do I revise a restraining order to gain custody of my dog who is registered in the county and chip in my name.
A: Assuming the person who put the restraining order on you has your dog, you should promptly challenge the restraining order within the statutory period noted on your paperwork. You can challenge all or a portion of a restraining order.
Q. Can my neighbor take my cat to the pound because he feels my cat is being a nuisance?
A: There is a difference between can and should. "Can" means that your neighbor has the physical ability. "May" means he has permission from you, the owner, or otherwise has legal authority. If the cat is on your property and the neighbor trespasses on your property to take your cat without your permission, there are trespass and theft claims. However if the cat trespasses onto your neighbor's property, then your neighbor can return the cat or take it to the pound. Then you can go to the pound to pick up your cat. Make sure your cat is micro-chipped and you have proper documentation, so you may pick up your cat. Since it is your neighbor, you might do your best to work things out in an amicable manner before getting authorities involved. These neighbors are the people you may need to have a good working relationship with when looters or burglars storm through your neighborhood or in other times of crisis, such as an earthquake. Find out why your neighbor thinks your cat is a problem and see if you can politely address your neighbor's concerns and come up with a workable solution. I think states and cities need to provide free on-line resources on city and state websites for mass training of conflict resolutions, as our courts are too clogged and many matters can be handled amicably before they spin out of control if all parties have conflict-resolution skills.
