Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered
Q. Can I sue a company located and regulated in the state of New York without being present in the lawsuit
A: You can file a lawsuit against a company that is in a different state than you but you would likely be required to make some appearances, such as at trial. Since COVID, many things are now handled remotely. It would be beneficial to have a local lawyer that can appear on your behalf for certain parts of the case.
Q. I was released on my own Reconizance, but 1 year later I was forced to take a urine test, as part of being Bailed out
A: This is sometimes allowed as a condition of your bond.
Q. Should I file a response in Circuit Court after being served papers to terminate guardianship of my grandson?
A: Yes, you should always respond appropriately after being served Court papers. If not, you could lose by default.
