All rates depend on the type and complexity of your particular case. The standard hourly rate for Mr. Adamo is $275.00. Some services are offered on a flat-fee basis, such as DUI/DWI. Advanced deposits are required in most cases and are determined after initial consultation. Hourly rates vary depending on complexity and skill necessary. Retainers and flat-fees are non-refundable and earned upon receipt once work has begun on your case. Free consultations are available for all Social Security disability cases or any matters taken on contingency. Generally for all other cases, I offer a 30-minute free consultation, either by telephone of in person, to hear the details of your case and provide you with an estimate on the cost of representation. However, we do not give free legal advice or answer legal questions - the free consultations are only to assess your case for the purpose of giving you an estimate of the cost of representation.

- Q. can a landlord deduct late charges 1-4yrs after rent dates to deduct from deposit after move out
- A: Generally, landlords are able to deduct late charges from security deposit funds after a tenant moves, and they don't need to give any notice that the late fee is owed it because the lease indicates that it is owed. ARS s. 33-1321(D) ("security may be applied to the payment of all rent, and subject to a landlord's duty to mitigate, all charges as specified in the signed lease agreement, or as provided in this chapter, including the amount of damages which the landlord has suffered by reason of the tenant's noncompliance with section 33-1341. ") The the list of itemized deductions is the tenant's notice. See ARS s. 33-1321(D). On the other hand, acceptance of a partial payment without acknowledging a right to collect the late fee as rent may constitute waiver of the late fee as additional rent. See ARS s. 33-1371. Of course, the answer to your question is highly dependent on a review of your lease. A consultation with a lawyer may cost more than the late fees. Nevertheless, you have the right to file an action for breach of the lease against your landlord in Justice Court, if you feel the landlord has improperly withheld money from your deposit. You can represent yourself. Again, your question is very hard to answer with any certainty without reviewing the lease.
- Q. my dog was taken 3 years ago we found him but people wont give him back what can i do legally
- A: Before we begin, how do you know that the "lady" did not bring the dog to the pound and, after a period of time has past, simply adopted the dog? Sadly, animals that are in the pound too long without being adopted are subject to euthanized. Often, the person bringing the dog to the pound will ask to be notified, if no one claims the dog. Three years is a long time. I suggest you find out first whether or not she legally adopted the dog. The pound should have records.
- Q. How do I contact the ninth circuit court to file a for an extension for me S S appeal
- A: Start with the Court's web site: http://www.ca9.uscourts.gov/. They have guides and forms there to assist you with requesting an extension.
- Q. Is a verbal agreement between two people enforceable. Amount being $9400.00 ?
- A: Generally, verbal agreements are enforceable, unless they involve one of several types of contracts listed here: Arizona Revised Statutes, section 44-101, then the agreement must be in writting. http://www.azleg.gov/FormatDocument.asp?inDoc=/ars/44/00101.htm&Title=44&DocType=ARS. You may wish to consider an action in fraud, if applicable.
- Q. My ex fiance signed an agreement but it wasnt notarized. Two days later he said he changed his mind.
- A: Generally, notarization is not required to enter a binding agreement. Some agreements (oral agreements) which are binding do not even have a signature.
- Q. I am selling my house and the capital gain is $175,000. There is a judgement against me worth of $50,000.
- A: Yes. It is true. See ARS 33-1101. However, the "homestead exemption in identifiable cash proceeds continues for eighteen months after the date of the sale of the property or until the person establishes a new homestead with the proceeds, whichever period is shorter." ARS 33-1101(C). So, you must either spend it or use it to purchase a new home.
