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.

Legal Answers
Q. Is it legal to see a car with recalls and not let the buyer know?
A: Of course, as a concerned buyer, buying a vehicle, you will want to look into that history before buying. A new car may NOT be sold with an open recall at all. A used one can. DUTY to disclose? That's another question, but, again, when spending that kind of money on a vehicle, it is wise, as you now know, to investigate more thoroughly.
Q. Stolen goods ?
A: Why do you want the police involved? Is this not just a breach of contract claim? IF it happened to me and I was NOT an attorney I'd hire one to write a demand letter for the $$$ not paid to you. IF that amount is less than $10,000.00 you likely end up in small claims court if no payment is made.
Q. Notice add ons on my car contract i did not approve dealership does not want to remove them
A: Most of those terms especially Payment packing, are used in legal circles only. Your knowing that term tells me you have seen one or more sites that handle this? IF so, that is where you should focus your inquiry, with one or more of those firms who specialize in this area of law. Good luck with it...
