Legal Answers
36 Questions Answered
Q. Massachusetts Boston my wife has a permit and keeps registering and insuraning cars in my name without my consent
A: It sounds like what she's doing is illegal but that's merely speculative based upon your brief statement. I recommend you contact the Division of Motor Vehicles.
Q. Plaintiff has attorney attach writ of attachment for $25k & it’s recorded at registry of deeds is that total owed?
A: The short answer is no. In addition to a real estate attachment, which the plaintiff will soon record, there should have been an accompanying Complaint. You will have to Answer that and defend the case or resolve/settle it. Hopefully, your total exposure is no greater than $25,000 but depending upon the Complaint and how it is ultimately decided, it could be more.
Q. If I'm represented by an attorney at a firm, can all his colleagues assist in the case without filing notice to appear
A: Yes. The attorneys who file an appearance are the lawyers of record with the court on your behalf. That doesn't mean other lawyers in the firm cannot assist, behind the scenes, on a case. I think it's a matter of degree and what they are doing. Conducting legal research or drafting memos seems fine. If the assistance takes the form of dealing with other parties outside of the firm in letters or phone calls, it might be a good idea for them to file an appearance.
