Legal Answers
37 Questions Answered

Q. Is a Jazz trio of ind contractors, LLC in Vermont, required to register as a foreign LLC to play a series of gigs in CT?
A: No. That would be absurd.
Q. I received a parking ticket in Bridgeport CT for parking too close to a crosswalk. other states say signage is key.
A: You can contest the ticket and take it to court. You may be able to persuade the state's attorney that you are correct.
Q. If a foreclosure does not show on the credit reports must it be disclosed when applying for a mortgage?
A: You must absolutely fill out your application honestly. If you do not, you may be liable for fraud.
Q. If a foreclosure does not show on the credit reports must/should it be included on a mortgage application?
A: You would be well advised to answer all questions honestly to avoid fraud.
Q. I recently got hurt in a job where I get paid under the table. What can I do?
A: You can file a personal injury claim. In the alternative you may be able to file under workers compensation. I would be interested in speaking with you further about this matter. I see you are in Bridgeport. I am two minutes away in Stratford and my office handles matters like this one regularly. Please feel free to contact us for further assistance.
Q. Can a penalty be imposed for late weekly workers compensation checks in CT?
A: Anything is possible, especially if it habitual enough. However, it is probably unlikely.
Q. : A friend got a ticket and a court date she used her sister's info can she go to court like she's her sister?
A: Do not defraud the court. This is a ridiculous question. I am trying to imagine a situation where an attorney will write in a public forum that it would be ok to defraud the court. Again, do not defraud the court.
Q. Can the parole board make as a condition of my parole that I cant drive throughout my duration of parole
A: Yes.
Q. What do i do if I gave a contractor a deposit and he does not do the work or return calls etc?
A: You need to hire an attorney with experience in civil litigation and contract law to "light a fire under the contractor" with a demand letter and some phone calls. At worst, you will need the attorney to file a claim against the contractor as well. This is something my office handles regularly. Depending on the amount of deposit, you may wish to file in small claims yourself. You can claim up to five thousand dollars. If you would like more assistance or advice, please feel to contact me. 203.870.6700
