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.

Q. Hey all, so I have this problem with my car that I already turned in.
A: Sorry for your issues. This shows just how important writings are. If you had this "pre-inspection" you could/should have seen the items marked as missing and made some noise there. If you took pictures (which are considered a writing) you have proof. If you have your drop off documents you have proof. Without it, you are simply SOL here it seems to what appears to be a scam. You can have "other" evidence, but, it's not likely solid enough? Maybe a friend or family member will testify when you sue them, that the headrests were there and maybe the judge believes it, maybe? Good luck with it!
Q. My 2018 Mattress, I never removed cover noticed it is now leaking glass. Daughter complains of itching, what can I do??
A: If this harmed your child it would be a travesty. It's not clear how many people, yourself included, would have avoided purchasing the product if it was advertised as having fiberglass in it? Still, some number of people may have opted to purchase a different product, especially in health conscious California. You will as noted, have to find a link or a connection between the fiberglass and the physical problem(s). Definitely seek out help and do so quickly as there is a two year statute of limitations (which may be tolled for a bit, but do not count on it) in which to bring such a claim. Good luck with it.
Q. I purchased a New 2019 Ram Promaster in CA in May 2020, with Open Saftey Recall
A: That is right. They are not allowed to sell a new vehicle with an open recall, so, have a lemon law attorney look at your sales documents.
