If money is in a bank account who gets money after the account holder pass away.

As indicated by others, if it was a “joint” account, the balance will be available to the other co-account holder. If not, there may be a “pay on death” or POD – in which case the funds will be payable to that designated person. If neither of those things are true, you may need to open an estate with the probate court. Depending on the value of your Son’s property / assets, you may be able to open what’s called a “small estate” – which is relatively inexpensive and simple. Best of luck with…

In Michigan do lawyers charge a fee for handling a first party claim against insurance for a client?

Depends on the firm. There is not ethics or other rule on this. Some firms may handle this work without fee if they are also pursuing a larger personal injury claim on your behalf. Some may still charge a fee for this work. If there’s no PI component to the matter, you’ll almost certainly have to pay an attorney for pursuing a related claim. The fact that you labelled this as a professional responsibility matter suggests that you think there may be an ethics issue here and none is obvious…

Repayment of Tuition Reimbursement from Former employer

I would look at the agreement documents with particular attention to the terminating events. I would guess that if you were terminated for “cause” (e.g., poor performance or improper conduct), you’d certainly have to pay the money back. I would be surprised, though, if you had to pay the money back after you were terminated due to a reduction in force, elimination of position or some other neutral basis. Take a look at the documents with a contract attorney in your area. It’s worth the time….

The attorney for bank has withdrawn from foreclosure case. How long does the new Attorney have to file their appearance

Bank will have to have another attorney at some point. If they fail to, the court may – but is not required to – dismiss the matter. This is unusual as typically there would be a substitution as opposed to an outright withdrawal. And a bank is the type of entity that cannot represent itself. Might be a good time for you to file some sort of motion if you have an issue to bring to the Court to force the issue and see if someone shows up. If they don’t, you can address that issue and also…

If a lawyer wants to take your case on contingency, does this mean they think you have a strong case?

Whenever you engage an attorney, you should be doing so pursuant to an engagement letter or engagement agreement which will specifically delineate how fees will be earned and paid and how costs will be treated. If you have engaged an attorney and do not know the answers to these questions still, you need to sit back down with your attorney and clarify. Generally, costs are advanced by the attorney and paid only upon recovery and come off the top. Likewise, ethics rules limit the fee on…

Can my Condo association tell me how many people can live in my condo?

Associations have a great deal of power over their co-owners – subject to some obvious constitutional limitations. That said, if the Bylaws / Master Deed were amended to include these limitations after you purchased, you may have an argument. Likewise, if the original adoption of the limitation was somehow defective, you might have an argument. And, sometimes, there may be some provisions permitting you to to appeal or something like that. But, if your question is whether such provisions…
