Summary

Norred Law handles litigation, bankruptcy, and intellectual property matters.

Litigation matters include from simple small claim matters to federal patent litigation. Norred Law has represented its clients in federal courts from California to New York, and in every federal district in Texas.

For our bankruptcy clients, we handle Chapter 7 and Chapter 11 matters for individuals and businesses, and Chapter 13 for individuals when appropriate. We also represent creditors who find themselves involved in bankruptcy.

In intellectual Property issues, Norred Law handles patents, trademarks, and copyrights. As a registered professional engineer with an MSEE and more than 15 years of experience in engineering projects, Warren Norred is uniquely qualified to understand engineering concepts and grasp new concepts. Norred's engineering experiences have also taught him how to handle varied and hard legal questions that others would avoid.

Norred's legal victories in the last year include success in many areas, including: a) filing of successful Chapter 11 bankruptcies, which many bankruptcy attorneys avoid; b) obtaining an injunction against a city for unconstitutionally infringing political speech; c) filing for patent rights for one client in more than 54 countries, all at one time.

Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. Does copyright filed in the UK apply in the US? And if the products are cosmetic and similar does that apply?
A: A work registered in the UK may be enforced here under the Berne Convention, but I'd ask them to give you proof of copyright.
Q. Fair use to generate transcripts of others' YouTube videos for purposes of research?
A: This appears to be a classic Fair Use and if you aren't using it for commercial purposes, the factors of Fair Use should lean toward allowing your use. My initial two cents is that you are fine. I'd probably want to give credit to Youtube and the content creators in your research.
Q. I financed a car in 2014 but stopped making payments on it in 2016 when it stopped working. Can they sue for whats owed?
A: Sure. You owed money for a thing and then stopped paying for it. Typically, they can sue within four years. Make sure that you get credit for the repaired value of the car, minus the cost to repair, as part of your debt. You might also make a deal with the new company to pay a portion of the debt.
Q. Im Chapter 13 and my wife isn’t. She’s coming into money. Can we buy land cash and build a home in both our names?
A: If your wife is the only one coming into money, then I'd keep it segregated in her account and do with it what you wish. It's very unlikely that you'll have a problem, especially if your C13 plan is confirmed.
