Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ASocial Media

I attended law school in my mid 30s after earning my degree in speech communications, traveling a bit, waiting on tables, running a small food business and teaching tennis for eight years. Translated, I had a bit of a life and a well developed personality and world outlook at law school, unlike so many "kids" who go straight out of college and learn only to fight. My job is to see your issues from the legal and non legal sides. I need to see how the other side thinks as well to end up with successful results.

I do not come from an ivory tower. I've been poor, very poor, for years, and whatever I have I have earned it on my own. Remembering that path and that climb is essential to everything I do, every day and why I fight for all that you deserve and usually try to get you a bit more than the law allows. That is why you will find excellent reviews out there on my practice. We strive to please in your time of need.

Q. Dealing with a debt settlement company. Switched companies mid payments. Now full debt is back in creditors hands.
A: Sorry for your issues. You either HAVE an agreement or you do not have one. This sounds like statutory unfair debt collection. I like Attorney Mike Cardoza for these types of cases. Please tell Mike I said "hello."
Q. What can I do if I find out my New/Used car was in several car accidents not listed on the CarFax?
A: Sorry for your issues. Start by opening up a "DMV Investigations" inquiry into what happened. They will put pressure on the selling dealer to get to the bottom of this. Then contact an auto fraud attorney, who should review at no charge or for a low fee and if s/he takes the case should only get paid IF/WHEN they win!
Q. User data
A: So, for me, IF I were thinking about this I'd do two things: 1- I'd "google it" as that info is "out there" almost assuredly; 2- I'd HIRE an attorney to handle, as it should be no more than an hour or two of work and if the attorney messed up, you have a lawsuit against him/her to cover the mistake(s) What I would not do is trust any (maybe even mine?) "free" advice on a legal forum. Good luck with it!
