The friend of my customer's neighbor's car is my something-or-other

What options does a landlord likely have when a tenant's guest/friend is slashing the neighbors' tires and threatening them and has a criminal record? Assume standard lease in Illinois and that the guest definitely did it but the police won't make an arrest yet. The tenant has done nothing wrong.

Can a urgent care clinic ban you?

I was at urgent care for a ear problem and the doctor only spent less than 2 minutes with me, didnt even look at the other ear, gave me a prescription and left. The nurse came in and wanted me to sign a form saying I was "satisfied with my treatment and had all my questions answered" I told the nurse I had more questions for the doctor before I would sign it. She said the doctor was not going to answer any more questions and I overheard him saying to call the police, I was amazed as I was being very polite. So I left, as I was leaving he said I was banned from the clinic. Can they do that?

I am currently involved with a criminal case. I have a lawyer, but would like a resource for multiple opinions on some questions I have related to the case. Is there a forum frequented by lawyerly types? A paid website where I can poll a panel of lawyers? Any offline resources? Thanks you.

Does anyone know of a good criminal lawyer in the Phoenix/Tempe area? My son ran into what should have been a minor possession charge (paraphernalia, residue), but is instead a potential felony change in the state of Arizona.
