    Driving without Registration

    Good thought, but this would not apply. The car would get registered in PA, not MA. Also, when the car was registered in PA, it would be a new registration, not a tag transfer. Thanks though.

    Driving without Registration

    Not necessarily. That was just one option. Driving with no tag is another option. And of course the car would be insured. But it would not be inspected. Could not get it inspected until it was back in PA.

    Driving without Registration

    Yep, double and triple checked with various dealers in MA. All had the same answer. I have 3 options -- the two I presented above, plus paying to have it shipped. So this brings me back to my original #1 question. What are the penalties (realistic, not max) if I get caught doing option 1. I...

    Driving without Registration

    The states involved in my question are MA, CT, NY & PA. I live in PA. I am looking to buy a used car from a used car dealer in MA. The issue is that MA does not offer transit tags or any other type of tag that allows me to legally drive the car back to PA, which is where I would register it...

    Hoping maybe by the Fall. Fingers crossed.

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    They came back and said they would do the ticket deal with me for 10 years (as long as they keep buying season tix), but not for life. I accepted. The chances of me being around for another 10 years and being in good enough shape to go a game are not that good. So 10 years works for me...

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    UPDATE: After thinking about it for a few days, reading the comments in here and talking with some people I trust, I went with Option B. I made a counter offer. A creative one, IMO. Throughout the 3+ years this suit has been progressing, there was 1 lawyer and 1 paralegal who I interacted with...

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    The numbers are clear. The original difference was ~$25k and now it is about half that. My numbers align perfectly with theirs. None of that is in question. It is a really simple calculation. Total Settlement Amount = X Witness Fees = Y Amount to be split between Attorney and me = (X-Y)...

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    When I say walk away, I mean risk losing their 1/3 by virtue of turning it over to me and me failing to collect the settlement. Neither of us would get anything if they turned over to me and I failed to collect.

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    So I met with them (over the phone). Highlights: 1. Meeting was with two people I never corresponded with before. One introduced himself as a partner of the firm. The second did not explicitly state her role with the firm, but left me with the impression that she was an accountant, business...

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    Thanks. I am going to hear them out tomorrow and take things from there. I did not sense an aggressive tone in the email, but we will see. Don't need a c-call for them to just say OK, we will accept 33 1/3%. .

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    No, but it does contain the following: "Client understands that the Claim is subject to investigation. After further investigation, Attorneys may determine to no longer represent Client with respect to this Claim and return this Case to Client at any stage of the Case."

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    1. Yes, I did and I do have copies of everything (contract and emails). 2. Not sure, great question. Will look now. 3. Agree on both points (if needed on the attorney part). As for materiality of the situation. Settlement (after expenses): $379,853 40% of Settlement = $151,941 33 1/3% =...

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    Received contact via email today asking if I am available for a conference call on Friday to discuss this matter. Not sure if they will try to negotiate or intimidate. I will hear them out but am in no hurry to do anything.

    Settlement Conflict with Lawyer

    The NY lawyer was publicly soliciting clients who developed specific medical conditions after using a particular product. They are a NY based firm, but have lawyers licensed to practice in many states, including MO (where the company being sued has their HQ). Suits are all individually filed...
