Legal Answers
Q. A person owes me money and stated a family member would pay but neither has can I sue both of them?
A: You may sue the person that owes you the money. Unless the family members guaranteed the debt to you (which has to be in writing), they are not obligated to pay you despite the fact that they later told you they would pay. The statute of frauds states that any guarantee to pay has to be in writing.
Q. If I have a fta with a $1000 bond do I have to pay the whole bond?
A: Your best bet is to hire an attorney to file a motion to recall the warrant. If the motion is granted, the warrant will be quashed and your case will be set for trial. The attorney can then represent you at trial.

Your option is to turn yourself in while ready to pay the $1,000.00 bond or to be ready with a bail bondsman who will charge a non-refundable fee to put up the bond.
Q. What type of lawyer helps us fight a business that sold a faulty prod resulting in a fire and pet death?
A: You should look for an attorney that handles fire cases. Under the law, you will have the burden of proof to show that the fire was caused by a defective product or someone's negligence. This is requires expert testimony which can be expensive. Some attorneys will advance the expenses and take the case on a contingency fee.

I am sorry for the loss of your pet. They are part of the family.
