You know we all take them, but what happens when there are side effects?

I often chuckle when I see a commercial for prescription drugs and the list of side effects is longer than the list of benefits for the drug! I guess this is an example of how companies are trying to avoid a "failure to warn" violation, but I find some of these commercials comical nonetheless.

So, SF topic! Yeah, beg bugs do periodically reappear in senior and assisted care living centers, and larger apartment buildings. May be its time for a class action? Let's name bedbugs as defendants too! Obviously the fact that it's a common problem does not excuse the landlord. If your landlord is not responsive or you're not sure, why not to call for inspector from City's Department of Building Inspections... and a great lawyer may also help :)

Tax optimization is amazing! Offer to compromise with IRS seems interesting. Sounds unbelievable that unpaid taxes don't have to paid in full, but only a certain percentage of what's owed. I wonder if there are still some other consequences.

I have a feeling that in some jurisdictions, self-help legal centers are sadly no longer handling guardianships and conservatorships. It that's true, it's also true that getting an advice from a qualified lawyer today is more critical than ever before.

Easy to understand legal info for non-lawyers. San Francisco residential tenancy laws are very complicated. These laws tend to protect the tenant and prevent eviction. Although difficult, it is still possible for a landlord to evict a tenant.. Present your case free to local lawyers. Learn more about: Evicting a Residential Tenant in San Francisco.

Evidence is key in every case, not just landlord-tenant issues.

Love the topic again! One can do so much of planing around interest rates. For example, taking out ( if you can...) an equity line (with floating rate)  and substituting it for fixed rate mortgage thorough the same bank. One may switch form higher fixed to lower but floating rates this way. Even if going from floating to floating, there may be advantages for "sub-ing" equity line for mortgage.Let's have more articles like this one bridging legal and finance worlds!!

First time I hear about "Innocent Spouse" tax relief. It's good to know! I bet a lot of people don't.

Even sophisticated business people so often misunderstand that! In business school, we had a trial simulation - a civil case - and the "jury" evaluating the "case" tried to apply "beyond a reasonable doubt" standard... .

LegalMatch is a great attorney referral service for anyone who is in search of an attorney. Their key driving points are that their intake process is simple and efficient. They screen their attorneys and will only deliver suitable matches for you. Moreover, their entire process is confidential. For example, when I was trying to find a personal injury lawyer, I went through various bar association referral services only to be left with too many choices. I was as lost as I began. But with LegalMatch, I was matched with 3 attorneys in my area. Also, I was given reviews from other persons who have used them. This matching process took less than 2 days, and it was free! The only downside to LegalMatch is that it does not match you up with attorneys instantly. I was a bit antsy waiting for my matches.
