Summary

I have represented hundred of parties, both plaintiffs and defendants, in lawsuits in state and federal courts. My favorite cases are class actions under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) targeting senders of annoying and illegal junk faxes, robocalls, and text messages. I have litigated more than 150 class action lawsuits and been appointed as Class Counsel multiple times in federal and state courts. Class actions are great way to level the playing field between consumers and large corporations.

Outside of my law practice, I am an avid marathon runner, having completed more than 50 marathons, including running 100 miles in less than 24 hours, and I also enjoy fishing and global travel.

311 Questions Answered

Q. Can you sue a company who keeps soliciting adds to you by mail even after they have been asked repetitively to stop?
A: You can sue for unsolicited calls, text messages, and junk faxes under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) because it provides a "private right of action." Emails are covered by the CAN SPAM Act and individual cannot sued under that act. I'm not aware of any statute that allows you to recover damages from an annoying snail-mailer.
Q. Can you be found guilty of a CRIME in a civil case?? And if so,Why would I NOT be allowed to sue for perjury??
A: I’m not following your post. Perjury is a crime and you seem to understand that a prosecutor prosecutes criminal cases. Some acts can be pursued both civilly and criminally. Think OJ Simpson.
Q. Unpaid wages
A: Whether you are an independent contractor or an employee, it sounds like you are owed money. Your options are to try to get paid on your own, file suit on your own, or hire an attorney to try to get you paid or to file suit.
Q. Is there a site I could talk to a lawyer to see if i have a strong case against my landlord?? I
A: www.justia.com/lawyers, www.mobar.org, www.martindale.com
Q. I want to sue for abuse of process
A: Contact an attorney in your area, put down a substantial sum, and go for it.
Q. I have had liens placed on mine and my husband's home.
A: It sounds like you already received good legal advice. It the judgment has not attached as a lien, then there’s no lien to remove.
Q. How do I ask the courts to remove a default judgement from 2006 in which the SOL has expired and it's not been revived?
A: First, if your attorney won’t return your calls hire a different one, assuming you can pay. Second, I’m not sure what you mean by “remove” the default judgment. If you seek to have it removed from appearing on Casenet, that is not likely to happen. If it was a default judgment but service of process was improper then you could pay an attorney to file a motion for relief from void judgment.
Q. What is a legal eviction? And how many days do you have to leave the property?
A: A "legal" eviction requires a court case and judgment against you before the landlord can have the sheriff execute on the judgment and return possession to the landlord. It sounds like you were given a notice to vacate from the landlord and that the landlord will likely file suit if you don't leave. If you can afford an attorney, consider hiring one. You also mentioned working long days. You didn't indicate if you were paid for the overtime. If you were, an attorney might be able to help with that situation. Most attorney's handle unpaid wage claims on a contingency (percentage -of-recovery) basis. I wish you the best.
Q. How long after everything is finalized do you have to comply with court orders?
A: If you have an attorney, this is a question that you should direct to your attorney. In general, however, once an order is issued you must comply immediately unless the order provides a different date.
