I need an attorney to research several acts of fraud and wire fraud committed by a previous business partner, and draft an initial complaint. You will probably end up working with a larger firm, but I want to get a cost-effective first draft ready to present for both civil and criminal actions. I am willing to work with a junior person, as we will engage more experience folks along the way. The case involves investments in Brazil, so knowledge of Portuguese would be useful but not required by any means as translations of key documents will need to be obtained.

They are now refusing to record the complaints being registered about such. The Job: Read and understand the noise By-Law as written and evaluate if the By-Law does cover noise being generated by truck traffic on the road. Write a letter to be sent to both the By-Law office, the Town Counsil and Mayor of the township. The letter must be compelling and point out the finding of investigating the By-Law.
