Did this happen to you? Went out sick, my bosses boss replaced me within a week, replacement broke into my office and removed all my stuff. HR said they would find me a comparable position in the company when I return. After 4 weeks I’m ready to return with a doctor’s note ready for full duty and they don’t have a job for me! They’re not telling me anything else. YANML but do I need one? I’m a single parent of a teenager in NYC. Thanks. Throwaway: NervisPervis@gmail.com
Bad legal decisions, a shady lawyer and bears, oh my! [more inside]
I'm looking for a lawyer who gives consultations over the phone, as I'm not in Canada at the moment. I have some very specific questions concerning self-employed immigration and a few other things (self-employed being the top priority though), so I'd like to find someone who is willing to answer questions as opposed to plugging my data into their questionnaire for a "chance assessment." I don't care where in Canada the lawyer is located, as long as they are versed in federal immigration procedures. Do you guys happen to know anyone like that?

[San Antonio Probate/Real Estate Attorney filter] Can anyone from the Hive recommend a good probate/real estate attorney in San Antonio or surrounding areas. Requirements are that this lawyer be a real go-getter and not afraid to stand up against other attorneys on our behalf. I don't want a good ol' boy that's going to become chummy with the other attorneys representing the others in this case as has happened recently with our present attorney. I want someone that's smart, ethical, and a bit of a scrapper.
