Q. The United states supreme court ruled panhandling is covered by the first amendment can i sue if arrested for doing so .
A: That depends on the facts and circumstances of your case. Since you didn't provide any, it's rather difficult to say.
Q. Hi, I have a medical practice and was recently served with order to garnish wages by sheriff.
A: You must comply with the court order. You can afford the services of a local attorney to advise you more appropriately on the details of the matter, but as a practical matter, if the person whose wages are to be garnished is not an employee, then you should not have any wages to garnish. Best practice would be to retain the services of an attorney to advise you.
Q. Can an employer require me to use PTO while receiving the California Paid Family Leave benefit from SDI?
A: You must read 29 CFR 825.207 (a) and (b), which seems to indicate that the employer may require you to apply for the California paid leave if you want to be paid during your FMLA leave, which is otherwise unpaid. As I read it, you are entitled to FMLA leave, which is normally unpaid, but as a condition of obtaining the paid benefit the employer offers, you may be required to seek the applicable state benefits in order to get paid. However, this to me does not indicate that you must take your personal time off (PTO) which you accrued as part of your employment. If the family leave is due to a disability (which you have not indicated) such as pregnancy and leave to give birth to your child, I don't believe in California you can be compelled to use your accrued personal time off (PTO) in order to get your FMLA leave. It is a very complicated scheme and California law is more liberal than the Federal benefit. There are lawyers who are very experienced with these issues in the Bay area, and you should seek them out for help with your situation.
Q. Filed a claim for MRSA 2011 that was approved, then 2014, 3 surgeries to save my arm from MRSA , denied my open claim
A: You need a worker's compensation attorney immediately. You should have no problem finding one near your work.
Q. I need to make a third party claim to money that sheriff Dept levied upon. Due to parent name on my HS acct.
A: Insufficient details are given to allow me to provide any meaningful advice. I need a detailed account of what transpired from beginning to end. You can find my questionnaire at Cut and paste the link into your browser, then Select the General form, fill it out and supplement that with all your documentary evidence if you would like an opinion whether I could help you. I do my best to analyze materials submitted so I can give you the best advice I can.
Q. What rights does a human research subject have when it comes to community engagement?
A: I can't even understand your question.
Q. Civil Appeal pending. 4/2 served Notice to Vacate. Given 5 days. Unable to meet that deadline. OPTIONS???
A: I have so many questions that need answering before I could even attempt giving an opinion. Does the civil appeal have anything to do with being served a 5 day Notice to Vacate (or Quit)? What is the basis of the Notice to Vacate? Unpaid rent? Something else? Options available depend on all the circumstances. Without knowing all the circumstances, any opinion would be quite limited.
Q. Hi, Article 1 of the California Constitution says: Californians have "inalienable rights". Who protects these rights?
A: It is up to each citizen to protect his/her own rights. In order to do that, we all need to know what our rights are. Rather than relying on "some attorney" out of context with your thinking or beliefs, read the California Constitution itself. It is freely available in any library or in the comfort of your own home if you have a computer and can access the internet. You can cut and paste this link in your browser: Click on the link and it will take you to the Table of Contents and you can review each provision to your heart's content. Use a dictionary to look up any words with which you may be unfamiliar. There are many free dictionaries online. It is up to each of us to know our rights, because we are each the guardians of our own liberties and freedoms. All the rights outlined in the U.S. and state constitutions are guaranteed. It is up to us to protect and enforce our own rights, and that's what lawyers do each and every day.
Q. what type of lawyer takes civil lawsuits to sue an attorney for misrepresentation and much more...
A: You must be thinking of a legal malpractice attorney. Just do a Google search and you will be able to select from a wide variety of different firms and attorneys who can help you. Most offer free consultations.
