Legal Answers
Q. In Arizona, who handles grievances toward court appointed counsel? Does it matter if the lawyer has their own firm?
A: The Arizona Bar handles complaints about lawyers. As for having their own firm, it really doesn't make a difference. If you think of suing your lawyer, you really should speak to a legal malpractice attorney before you file anything.
Q. Where can I find a sign that clearly prohibits the possession of weapons on our church premises with the ARS numbers
A: I looked, but I cannot find such a law. For example, ARS 13-3102 prohibits people from bringing firearms to polling places, schools, and nuclear power plants, but says nothing about churches. See ARS 13-3102(A)(11)-(13).
Q. I let a friend store his stuff in my garage it was broken into an some of his an my stuff was taken police report was fi
A: In writing, tell him he has 30 days to remove the items from your garage and that if he does not remove them by that date, you will dispose of his remaining belongings, and then wait another 30 days before you remove them.
