New Article Forthcoming...Weigh in now!
August 10, 2011 11:34 AM - N. Ter Vivos
Good day blog readers and participants. My name is N. Ter Vivos (the attorneys in the house will understand the play on words!) and I will be writing a column/article on legal issues called "Briefly Speaking." I have already selected several topics about which I will write, but I also want to hear from you. What types of legal issues would you like to see covered? Remember, although I am an attorney, I can provide information about legal issues and topics but cannot and will not give specific legal advice. Please let me know what interests you, what you've always wanted to know about, etc. I make no promises, but will do my level best to cover topics within the realm of my knowledge and experience. I thank you in advance for your contributions, ideas and readership.

I want to know why the justice system is so unjust.

I third the idea for info on wills, etc. That would be most helpful.

Also eviction procedures. :(

MM, whomever gets to say first "Well, take me to court then" has the upper hand. so if you lock her out and she complaints and you hit her with "Well, take me to court then" then you in the lead. Of course, her peeps know the laws, loop holes, & judges way better so it might be best to just "put up" with her

Since I'll be retiring soon and traveling a lot more in the future, can we review the sodomy laws globally?

I definitely need help with LL and tenants rights. My deck tent tenant keeps sneaking into my kitchen and stealing brownies and cookies. I think he's giving them to someone else as a bribe. What recourse do I have?
; )

Anonymous: Why are people treating this like a joke?

Could be a valuable addition to the site especially given the fact that you wanted to expand the site to bring in more people...
