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. I ordered an RTV from a dealer 02/2021.
A: They did it. The question is, "can they make it stand?" As you've framed it, no. But the true context of it all will be in the contract itself. Show it to an attorney for a review to find out for sure what your rights are.
Q. I have a roof leak caused by the installation of solar panels.
A: Sorry for your issues. There are many options. To me, since you do not want massive damage you get it fixed asap AND make sure those who ARE fixing make a record that it was in fact the SOLAR people's fault. THEN later, imho, you go after the solar folks. Good luck with it...
Q. I bought a car from a dealership in 5 years paid off the loan without missing/late payments, and never received a title
A: Assuming all facts to be true and correct and these are the only facts, yes, you would have a case v. Dealer and v. Holder of the contract, here, you've described them as a 'financial institution.' The lawsuit may be substantial but if you are a non atty, you are more likely than not to miss any number of things, including scaring them at all. Further, since many of the consumer protection laws that could or should be used include the 'bad guys' having to pay your attorneys, there is no 'good' reason for not seeking out counsel imho. Good luck with it.
