    for me, that would be an sole practice attorney

     

     

    My first impression would have been that you would be hard pressed to find an attorney in solo practice but I was surprised to learn that a 2016 survey by the American Bar Association revealed that 49% of attorneys are in solo practice:

    You have a good chance of finding one by making those phone calls.

     

    You should google something like "a day in the life of an attorney in solo practice" so you have enough preliminary information so that you can ask pertinent questions quickly, perhaps on the phone. A half hour is worth $200 and up to an attorney.

    They did not call me the day that it didn't post or go through my account and tell me that it was not able to he was drawn they did not call me it has been three weeks since that payment was made and nobody has contacted me saying that it hadn't clear the bank or else I would have taken care of it ASAP

     

    So take care of it now. Bring the payment to the dealer and get your car back. Why haven't you done that?


  3. I didn't read your post. Too long, hard to read font.

     

    Bottom line: Your son knows what he did, admitted it, and is going to jail for it.

     

    What's your goal here?

     

    If you want his sentence reduced he can file an appeal based on ineffective counsel. That's going to require a HIRED lawyer, not a public defender. Be prepared to spend $10,000 and up.

     

    If you just want to get the lawyer in trouble file a complaint with the state's lawyer regulatory agency. I doubt that it will go anywhere and your son's sentence won't change.

     

     


  4. You should have led with that important bit of information.

     

    The fact remains, she needs to call the police about the car and the situation and do it ASAP. Given her situation, nothing bad will happen to her.

     

    One alternative occurs to me. If she can get into the car and find insurance papers she can just call the insurance company and have them pick up the car.

    Put the car in his girlfriend's garage and didn't tell her. This was mid 2018. She finds out and demands he move the car. He refused and then killed himself in January.

     

    How does she not know for six months that the car was in her garage? That makes no sense at all.

    So now this girl has a stolen car in her garage that's been there for over a year.

     

    Another 8 months and she's just addressing this now?

    They didn't say anything about it

     

    It was up to you to ask as part of your due diligence before proceeding with the application.

     

    I'm pretty sure that your taxes will increase but I don't see how your neighbors' taxes will increase since there are no changes to their properties.

     

    I think your neighbors are just angry NIMBYs.

     

    (This is as good a place as any to post as we all read all the forums anyway.)


  7. Another HOA sob story. We see them about once a week on these legal websites.

    Can an HOA President do this?

     

    No, of course not. She can't rescind something that's already been approved and built.

     

    However, considering how hostile the HOA president is, I'm gonna guess that your friend will have to sic a lawyer on her to get the current request resolved.

    is a paradoxical situation from which an individual cannot escape because of contradictory rules or limitations. Catch-22s often result from rules, regulations, or procedures that an individual is subject to, but has no control over, because to fight the rule is to accept it. Another example is a situation in which someone is in need of something that can only be had by not being in need of it (e.g, a bank will never issue someone a loan if they need the money). One connotation of the term is that the creators of the "catch-22" situation have created arbitrary rules in order to justify and conceal their own abuse of power. Joseph Heller coined the term in his 1961 novel Catch-22, which describes absurd bureaucratic constraints on soldiers in World War II. The term is introduced by the character Doc Daneeka, an army psychiatrist who invokes "Catch-22" to explain why any pilot requesting mental evaluation for insanity—hoping to be found not sane enough to fly and thereby escape dangerous missions—demonstrates his own sanity in creating the request and thus cannot be declared insane. This phrase also means a dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions.

     

    Above is almost a direct quote from Wikipedia, though rearranged a bit:

    someone has stollen my car, and has figure out a loop hole in the law. This loop hole allows them to keep my car stalk, and torture me. if i go crazy then i dont deserve the car, and on the other hand if i dont go crazy i dont need the car.

     

    That doesn't make any sense. How did that person get your car and why can't you get it back. Give us facts, not hyperbole.

    I think there was an "and" missing, as in:

  9. The US Fair Debt Collection Practices Act applies to debt collectors but not to the original creditor.

     

    See Section 805 regarding communication by the debt collector.

    As far as I can tell, Kentucky does not have a statute that applies to the original creditor so the original creditor can dun you with impunity.

    The cases follow the same pattern.  File the case, they file a Motion to Dismiss, have a hearing on the motion to dismiss, win.  You file discovery, they refuse to answer a single question, you file a Motion to Compel.  You may want to take a few depositions. Then file a Motion for Summary judgement, move on to the next.  You can take it to trial if you want more hours per case. 

     

    Since it's that easy, put your $400 per case where your mouth is and do it yourself.

     

    I repeat somebody else's question (which you ignored):

     

    How many have you won?
