Legal Answers
Q. I am a professional that had an agreement with an attorney to provide expert medical testimony.
A: If you want to get out of the contract, then you should take the written agreement to a contract attorney who works in a different area than the attorney you are having trouble with, and see what they have to say about the terms. If you feel the conduct was unbecoming of an attorney enough to warrant a formal reprimand, then you should report that attorney to the state bar. Be aware this involves lots of paperwork and time. It may not really be worth it once you've had a chance to cool off a bit. Contacting the court is generally considered inappropriate for anyone involved with a lawsuit. This is not recommended. On a personal note, it's a pretty dumb move to threaten your own expert. There must be some other stressors involved with this behavior. If I were you I would just professionally and privately discuss your concerns with the other attorneys working the case. I'm sure they'll be apologetic and could limit your contact with that one particular lawyer if you decided you were willing to move forward with the reports and testimony.
Q. Want to Quickclaim one-ninth (1/9), undivided interest in real estate property, Perry County, AL.- need correct wording
A: The term is "Quitclaim". And it sounds like you're about to make a mess of your title. I strongly encourage you to seek a paid consultation with an experienced real estate attorney who can help you accomplish your goals.
Q. If you have co owners to a property and one has not been seen in 15 years can you have them forfeit it?
A: There is a slight chance that ousting a co-tenant can be successful but it takes at least ten years, knowledge of her whereabouts, and specific actions on your son's part which would necessitate him consulting with an experienced real estate litigator. It is such a rare occurrence that I've not yet seen anyone succeed. The more common and secure method is offer to buy her half, and if she refuses then to file an immediate petition with the Circuit Court. He would need to have half of the appraised value saved in cash, as well as attorney and court fees. The first method is less expensive, but much riskier. I encourage you to consult with an attorney for more specific information before attempting either method so that you fully understand all risks.
