Should I give up the easement through my neighbors yard?

YANML: I have an easement through my neighbor’s property. I use it regularly and the neighbor and I get along just fine. The other day the neighbor approached me about extinguishing the easement. While he didn’t offer me any money or anything, he was clearly lobbing the ball to me to come up with what I would want to release the easement to him. I’m located in Alameda County, California. More than you need to know after the break. [more inside]

How to protect an inheritance/gift from taxation?

My dad passed away this year and my mom has very generously decided to gift the house to my sister and I rather than. The house is in Canada, I live in the U.S. (Permanent residence). My sister and brother in law bought my half of the house when the mortgage was due (approximately April 1st) so I now suddenly have a 6 digit lump sum of cash in a Canadian account. I have not signed anything yet. I want to protect this from taxation, I also don't want to jeopardize my permanent residence status or potential citizenship. I know I need a lawyer, but what kind and how do I find a good one? I am in Wisconsin, particularly Eau Claire since that's probably important.

Is the Happy Lawyer a mythical species?

Everywhere I look, I see blog posts, AskMeFi comments, etc., about how you shouldn't go to law school, about the crushing debt that it imposes, stories about how people hate their lives as lawyers, about the masses of layoffs in the industry, or about how the work isn't what, or as interesting as, they expected. Now, my question is -- are there any notable positive blogs / perspectives out there, written by a lawyer? Comments from MeFi lawyers are definitely welcome. [more inside]
