I need to find a civil attorney in Tucson, Az USA?

I have a Landlord/tenant dispute (I am tenant) and I need to find a lawyer in the Tucson area. I make too much to qualify for legal aid, but the dispute is for little money, so I would like someone who would work pro bono; perhaps to get some trial practice. Anyone know someone to call? I have checked the internet and phone books already. This would have to be from someone’s personal experience, or maybe someone reading this IS that person?

What should I do with my borderline mother?

I have a love/hate/hate relationship with my mother. She abused me as a child, hated me for the fact that I missed my father (who left her), blamed me for her having not gone back to college, and has done so much to try to keep me back in life. She’s succeeded a lot, and I’m growing weary of fighting her. I honestly wish that she were either dead or far enough away from me where she wouldn’t visit. She’s too selfish to get on a plane unless someone pays for it.

The woman stripped me and beat me, slapped me if I looked like I didn’t agree with her words/actions, called me names, refused to sign my FAFSA forms when it was time for me to go to college (she was afraid of her identity getting stolen…but she has tons of credit cards). She took me to a foreign country and got jealous when I learned the language and was able to get around and have fun…when she could not. She had married a man she’d only known for months, and rather than admit to her fault, she lied to my family about me. She ruined my reputation with them. I had a stroke two years ago, and she refused to tell my family I was sick. She told her sisters I was faking. How do you fake your way into the ICU?

The woman is always around willing to help until I really need her, and then she’s struggling. Right now I’m facing eviction, and she’s complaining about how she can’t get her multiple houses rented. My fiancee and I juggle medical needs with bills, struggle to put food in our fridge, and she drives a Chrysler 300.

I just started working again, and asked my mom to help me (stupid STUPID me) with half of daycare for a month. $75 a week, so we’d have a little bit left over from my serving tips (I went on bedrest to have my son just before the economy took a nosedive). She’s struggling in her house with no mortgage, fridge full of food, and paid off Chrysler.

Every time I try to get on my feet, she does whatever she can to make it difficult for me. For now, I’m just gonna have to break even with this job. They want to train me for management, but I’m just paying for daycare now. No extra income. I hope it doesn’t take long.

I am a smart, hardworking individual. Before I got sick I was working two full-time jobs and going to school full-time with a 3.7 GPA. I’m NOT a slacker. I work as hard as I can, but sometimes I can’t do it all. Sometimes my family can’t do it all. If it weren’t for my fiancee’s parents I don’t know where we’d be. And they’re far less wealthy than my mom. I feel like for her “helping” is just something she can use to make herself look good. It doesn’t come from her heart. She keeps saying that she’s always taught me right and been there for me, but that’s far from the truth. Everything I’ve learned on my own she claims she’s taught me. Every success I’ve had she takes credit for. And every time I need her, she makes me feel like a freeloader.

My brother says my mom owes me nothing. I feel she owes me love, and that’s more than just words. I told her that if she didn’t care, she should have gotten that abortion. Should I just write her off? Trying to compromise with this woman has me feeling like a dog searching for scraps from the rich man’s table.

Want to move to florida with Security/Law enforcement experience only.?

I am considering moving to florida from Massachusetts. I am not a police officer, however have 10 years of security and law enforcement experience. My law enforcement experience comes from being a constable which is somewhat the same as a deputy sheriff, we handle civil process such as evictions, property seizures, and arrests of dead beat parents as well as serving papers. I have also worked a few years in the armored car industry, and as an armed security guard, and am almost finished becoming a special police officer which here in Massachusetts is basically a security guard that is allowed police powers and makes arrests only on the properties that we cover.

I was also thinking about getting certified up here as a bartender. I was told by a couple of my friends in Florida that they know a bar tender that makes $500.00 in one day doing that. Another friend told me exactly the same and they do not know each other.

I was thinking maybe casino security, or bar tendering at a hot spot like a casino or cruise ship or popular hotel.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Civil lawsuit question?

My boyfriend and I were released from an apartment lease this summer… basically we found out one of our roommates was doing heroin, ALL the time, in the apartment and what not… We moved out, continued paying rent, found out the other two had stopped paying their rent and we were about to all be evicted. The leasing company agreed to let us out of the lease if the other 2 roommates signed a roommate release (which they did because they knew they were the ones defaulting on rent and he was doing drugs) and if we paid off their entire outstanding rent balances (which we did and they signed a loan payment plan as well– this also gave them another month to stay on the lease and come up with rent money to continue living there). The leasing company was given the signed roommate release forms along with all the money they asked for and signed receipts for the money saying “ending lease apartment # blah blah” with my boyfriend and I’s name. Anyways, those 2 ended up getting evicted and getting summoned to court in Sept. They did not show to court and have a default hearing tomorrow (dec 22) but now, those 2 as well as my boyfriend and I are being summoned to court next week, for eviction and money. My boyfriend and I are going to show up with all of our paperwork but my main question is…. How can those two have already been sent to court twice over this property and now we are added to a whole new case number, regarding the same property? Is this something the leasing company squirmed in and if so, is there someones attention we should bring this to at the court?- the fact that those 2 were already evicted and summoned to court twice over this property? Honestly, the amount they are suing us for, I have no idea where they got that number from, other than maybe those two’s late fees and a month possibly of rent. Thx!

HELP!!!! Landlord stole everything from apartment and police will not help!?

My landlord recently went into my apartment, changed the locks, and took everything I own.

After I hired an attorney, my landlord admitted that he did not in fact ever go to court to evict me and had no legal reason. After lawyer filed a case against him in court, landlord became scared and agreed to meet me to return my belongings.

However, he has failed to do so. And under the law, it meets every single definition for theft of property.

I have tried to file a report for theft of property 3 times.

Every time I get a police officer to listen, he calls the landlord, who flat out LIES to the officer and tells him that he has a warrant of eviction (i.e. legal permission to remove my things). But the officer never presses him to produce official proof (index number) and takes him at his word and tells me they will not let me file a report for stolen property because the landlord legally evicted me. They then tell me it me MY job to to prove to them I was not evicted!

John R- I am already suing in civil court. I would like them punished in criminal court was well, which is why I am attempting to file charges.

Also, the landlord is not putting any agreement in writing. The offer to return my things is a stall tactic….every time we are due to meet, they never show up. I believe they have already disposed my property.

Also, please do not tell me to have my attorney do anything. I am paying $500 dollars an hour to him! I can’t afford to ask him to do addtional work for me right now….that’s why I asked what to do on here.


I filed a Creach of Contract Case 100% I thought, and still lost the case?

The forms to file a Breach of Contract case are: 1. Complaint-Contract; 2. Cause of Action-Breach of Contract; 3. Cause of Action-Intentional Tort; 4. Cause of Action-Common Courts, and 5. Cause of Action-Fraud. The court dismissed the case reading: Plaintiff’s Motion for Breach of Contract, Written, and Request for Effective Written Agreement in Support of Demurrer of Plaintiff is deemed opposition to defendant’s demurrer. Defendant (their name) demurrer to the complaint is sustained without leave to amend as to that defendant. The Court, on its own motion, without leave to amend, strikes the complaint. The Court finds that the complaint is not drawn in conformity with the laws of this state, and there is no possibility plaintiff can amend the complaint to state a viable cause of action. Because of this Courts wrongful decision, it will cause me 7 years of this wrongful eviction. The Breach of Contract case to me was totally and absolutely ignored and avoided; and was switched over to a case of Demurrer case. How can the Court finds that the complaint is not drawn in conformity with the laws of this state, When all this took place in Los Angeles, CA where I and the defendant live and the Court is here too? My question is how must I reopen this case just on the ground of Breach of Contract alone, leaving absolutely no room or question for a demurrer or anything else. Last of all, how can you lose a case, having 100% of the evidence and exhibits, Etc. Perhaps get Jury Trial?
The case was within the stutute of limitation. The case was dismissed; but the eviction I am suffering for being on my record for the next 7 years. Funny that was not dismissed. The defendant lied and the court brought absolutely everything they said; nothing I filed or said was not worth nothing at all, this I do know of. Frankly speaking, it was meant for me to lost this case, and out to the street or wherever is where you’re going.

Landlord found out about my little dog please advise.?

i have been living in a 3 unit apt for ten years with my husband and two little boys. this is a NO pet apt. and 3 months ago i rescued a little chihuhua and we decided to keep her. she is very quit and calm. and everything was fine until my downstairs neighbors told on me (which they say are very sorry for doing that ) and he showed up at my door and told us the dog has to go. i had been on celexa for a year until i found the dog and slowly came off the pills and my dr. was very happy and told me that the dog probably had something to do with it. i now am going crazy since this morning and dont know what to do. my landlord is an attorney in san diego, who comes by once a month to collect the money from the laundry room.. he does not live on the premises. my neighbors told me go ahead and keep the dog and if he asked we’ll say that she’s gone, but i dont want to lie and be evicted incase he finds out. is there a law or anything that i can do to keep my dog. please advise. tx

Being evicted i need to know my legal rights and what i can do.?

A little background info about the problem.Me and my 2 other roomates were living at our apartment for a little less than a year. My other roomate who had his name on the lease took it off so for us to stay there we had to add our names to the lease. The management company im dealing with is very disorganized and they are claiming they did not receive one of the forms needed for the application. We paid this months rent and they are saying that we have to move out by the 18th. When i called the management company they were not helpful at all even when i told them we gave them everything. What can i do to fight this eviction what are my legal rights? any help would greatly be appreciated.
I currently live in California. The only person on the lease was my other roommate who moved out but they told us that we could add our names and we gave them all the proper forms and now they are claiming we have to move out.
