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. Is there any legal action I can do since I haven’t received my money in almost a month???
A: Breaking this way down to basics: You have an agreement to give them a car and for them to pay you. They now have the car and the money, which is not OK. You can be patient and hope this works out, but, that is not real likely. You can get legal help. I'd for sure complain to the DMV about this and I'd consider hiring consumer protection counsel, as this could cost these folks more than just owing you money. Good luck with it.
Q. wife won settlement lawyers received settlement 3 months ago and have not given my wife her part
A: So no one "wins" a settlement. That's why it is a settlement, to avoid winning/losing. Your wife would have had to have signed off on the settlement to get one. How do you know the lawyers have the money? AND why are they saying they are not realeasing the the money yet? Are you sure your wife is being honest with you? In the end if she is not happy, she may want to seek new counsel to handle this.
Q. Hi We live in Saratoga, CA and are having problems with our neighbors across the street.
A: IF THIS: "We went to the city, but the code does not have any light-trespassing/pollution laws" is true, it may be tough to sue them? Perhaps you can find a way to limit that intrusion? Higher hedges? Some shades?
