Summary

I have represented hundred of parties, both plaintiffs and defendants, in lawsuits in state and federal courts. My favorite cases are class actions under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) targeting senders of annoying and illegal junk faxes, robocalls, and text messages. I have litigated more than 150 class action lawsuits and been appointed as Class Counsel multiple times in federal and state courts. Class actions are great way to level the playing field between consumers and large corporations.

Outside of my law practice, I am an avid marathon runner, having completed more than 50 marathons, including running 100 miles in less than 24 hours, and I also enjoy fishing and global travel.

Q. How long after not hearing anything from an attorney can I assume that a lawsuit wasn’t filed?
A: Check Casenet to see if a case in Missouri has been filed. Don’t assume anything. https://www.courts.mo.gov/casenet/cases/searchCases.do
Q. Would an employer be in violation of MO statute 115.639 for terminating an employee that requires time off to vote?
A: Below is the statute. Based on your recitation of the facts, I questin whether you complied with the requrement that "that request shall be made for such leave of absence prior to the day of election." Three hours off work to vote--interference by employer a class four offense. 115.639. 1. Any person entitled to vote at any election held within this state shall, on the day of such election, be entitled to absent himself from any services or employment in which he is then engaged or employed, for a period of three hours between the time of opening and the time of closing the polls for the purpose of voting, and any such absence for such purpose shall not be reason for the discharge of or the threat to discharge any such person from such services or employment; and such employee, if he votes, shall not, because of so absenting himself, be liable to any penalty or discipline, nor shall any deduction be made on account of such absence from his usual salary or wages; provided, however, that request shall be made for such leave of absence prior to the day of election, and provided further, that this section shall not apply to a voter on the day of election if there are three successive hours while the polls are open in which he is not in the service of his employer. The employer may specify any three hours between the time of opening and the time of closing the polls during which such employee may absent himself. 2. Any employer violating this section shall be deemed guilty of a class four election offense.
Q. Does an unsigned revised lease with modified move-in and move-out dates make the original lease null and void?
A: You are in a bad position. The fact that you felt rushed and chose to sign without seeing the place is an explanation but is legally irrelevant. You chose to sign nonetheless. If you were not to pay rent and get sued then a court would likely find that the signed lease controls. You’ve raised some issue about habitability but I don’t think they rise to a level that would give you an out. Nonetheless, you could hire an attorney to write a letter and try to achieve and acceptable compromise.
