I would not worry about it most of the people that post on the board do not
leave there names such as last names . So thats a privacy clause we want, and , which I'm sure the law will accept
as private.Becuase if we wished to be public we would say I'm Rodney Dangerfield,
heres my claims. I think thats a good point though, should there not be
formal laws written that says to housing court you cannot envade my privacy, when
we wish our idenities and or our legal situation to be private?

: I would not take the advice of pro bono attorney (the courts free one).They
: know they can lie or be wrong and be held accountable by no one including
: the bar, all they have to say is. why are they crying I gave them free advice.
: I am not a lawyer. But why don't you ask one of these landlord/tenant lawyers for
: a second opinion, and pay them, so they will have a legal obligation to give
: you good advice.Talk to one in person that advertises on the board before you go thru the expense
: and time of of and appeal?

: : I need to decide whether or not to appeal the decision. I was pro se. There are errors in law and errors in fact according to the pro se attorney. (I'm reluctant to go into details: the court was buzzing re this message board re Richard/Dangerfield). I will be contacting lawyers, all strangers to me, this week and was hoping some of you could give me a ballpark estimate about the costs and time involved to compare with what thay say.

: : For now: how much to expect just to file the appeal?: court cost, transcript cost: 10 hours, attorney to prepare the papers, (alternate) attorney to coach and review the papers.

: : Just as important: I want to deposit the rent/judgement into the court of appeals and stay the possesion: is this the normal thing?

: : Thank you for your time.

: : ps: any other suggestions welcomed!
