Ex is getting the house, need legal help in Denver, Colorado

My ex and I are trying to figure out how to transfer the house to her without me losing all of my equity. Unfortunately, she can't afford to just buy me out, and can't qualify for a new mortgage on the remaining loan balance if she's got a loan to me as well. I'm looking for recommendations on finding a lawyer to help vet a legal agreement, and any specific legal methods for making this happen. This is in Denver, Colorado. [more inside]

Overseas Law Jobs

I am an attorney working for a midsize firm in the US. I am fairly happy with my job, but have always wanted to work abroad (particularly in the UK). I have no clue how desireable (if at all) US licensed attorneys are abroad or how to go about finding job openings. I found several legal recruiters based in Europe online, but the sites are a bit sketchy. I know that there are various legal exchange programs, but they are generally in non-profit fields or send you to third world countries (which is admirable, but not what I am looking for). Any thoughts, resources or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Do we need a lawyer when we close on our mortgage refinance?

Because we are in New York state, when we close on our refi, we are going to have to sign all of our paperwork in person. As I understand it, New York law requires this. We had our own lawyer present when we closed on the purchase of this house. Should we have one when we close on the refinance? If so, Why? If it matters, we are in Nassau county, and we are refinancing with the original bank who has owned our mortgage since we purchased the home.

Real estate lawyers: worth it for "normal" homebuying? (Ontario, Canada)

My wife and I are actively looking to buy a house in Kingston, Ontario and have been working with a real estate agent that we're quite happy with. What would the advantage of having a real estate lawyer in the mix be?

Lawyer for Mortgage Assumption?

I'm doing a mortgage assumption for a co-op in NYC. It was co-owned and the other owner was bought out, with their name now being taken off the mortgage and the co-op stock certificate. I'm paying for a lawyer for the bank. Do I need a lawyer for myself, too? It seems straightforward to me but I wanted to be sure there's nothing I need a lawyer to do for me that the bank lawyer won't take care of.

You are not my scammy developer

I volunteer for a non-profit organization. We've had a work agreement with a small company (Basically one or two guys) to do Drupal development work for a year. Short story: the point person in our organization is suddenly no longer with us (deceased), the developer has terminated the contract, almost none of the specifications are complete. "Agile development! Hand waving! You don't understand." We're out a LOT of money and he is holding any not yet tested code hostage for another 15K in billing. All invoices past (approved by previous guy) and present (which I don't want to approve) consist of a single line: "X number of developer hours at Y rate = gimme Z money". They are autogenerated since the number of hours is always the max allowable under the work agreement and still addressed to the deceased. We are going to the lawyers soon, but... [more inside]

Help my friend not get screwed over by lawyer in recovering bank account

Please help my friend not get screwed over by his own lawyer in recovering dormant bank acct funds.
Here was my last ask metafilter question. For my friend who had his Mexican HSBC bank account closed, and Someone me-mailed me and recommend he find a lawyer on the US Embassy site which he did. It seems HSBC closed the account because it was dormant (something similar to this situation maybe?). The lawyer said he thinks this was illegal, and that the lawyer has contacted top executives at the bank and that the lawyer can recover the funds if my friend can give 30% of said recovered funds to the lawyer as a fee (this fee seems exorbitant). Half to be paid now, and half to be paid upon obtaining the funds in the dormant account. This seems like a huge fee, for which the funds that are probably legally available to my friend by some other simpler means. My friend can't go to mexico for at least several months, and when he calls HSBC in Mexico they say they can't give him any more specific information about his account unless he comes to a branch in person, in Mexico. Any advice on how can pursue this without getting hosed for 30% of his own money?

Help my friend find a lawyer to represent him for banking in Mexico

My friend has an HSBC Mexico account, that had about 40,000 dollars in it.. he didn't use the account for a year, he called today to get a new checkbook, and found out the account had zero balance in may of 2013, and the account was closed. HSBC Mexico said they can't give more information unless he goes in person to a branch in Mexico. He is willing to hire a lawyer, or Power of attorney, or someone to investigate this in Mexico who legally represent him. He is currently far from mexico and can't make it there any time soon. His mom is in Mexico, can she get power of attorney?

Any advice on how to do this? How can he go about finding a lawyer in Mexico who can help him? Or what actions can he take? He suspects fraudulent activity as he did login to his internet banking last year and saw all his money there.
