I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, where I practiced law from 1977. I was a municipal attorney for the first part of my legal career, and then switched to private practice. I conducted a general private law practice, with emphasis in civil litigation and bankruptcy. I also taught several college-level courses relating to various aspects of the law. In 2004, my family and I moved to Florida and have been here ever since. From 2011 to 2015 I worked for another lawyer in Walton County, assisting him in his office, especially with scheduling of attendance at real estate foreclosure hearings in behalf of secured creditors. I was admitted to the Florida bar in 2016.

A: No, they don't have to tell you.
Q. My father recently passed away Leaving my sister the sole beneficiary She is out spending money uncontrollably
A: If it's her money, she can do with it as she pleases.
Q. A loan was taken out against home my mother left me. Her name was forged by my stepfather. Can I do anything about it?
A: I assume the borrower got a judgment against your mother and the judgment was recorded before you inherited the property. Contact a probate attorney and have the attorney look at all the circumstances.
Q. How can I receive transcripts from a court trail from 2002?
A: Was the verdict appealed? If so, check the appellate record. If not, contact the court reporter, if you can find out who that was.
Q. Back Support and Texas estate inheartance
A: It would depend upon whether the funds are immediately payable to the obligor (person who owes the child support) by the estate. Post your question in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Texas › for more details.
Q. We are renters of a house in foreclosure. The courts just issued the final judgement with a sale date of August 8.
A: You have until the foreclosure sale, assuming you keep paying your rent to your landlord (who will remain your landlord until the sale).
Q. Can I sue my employer for treating me different from everyone else?
A: No, your employer is not required to treat you like everyone else, unless he is treating you differently on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, sex, or other such classification.
Q. Do our tenants get their security deposit back with the FL Early Termination & Liquidated Damages fee?
A: It's difficult to say because you only included a couple of clauses from the contract. One would have to read the full contract to see if your management company is reading it correctly.
Q. 24 hr eviction. I was allowed back on property and living in shed after sheriff left. File for eviction again?
A: The landlord told you that you could stay in the shed until Monday? The landlord would probably file, in the same case, for a supplemental writ of assistance, directing the sheriff to eject you from the property.
