I don't think they will ever see him againWink

This decision would probably be best for his family and his previous neighbors.

    Pedro Quezada and his lawyer's smartest 'final draft plan.'  Pedro can deduct his own contributions to this newly proposed children's charity, yet not paying any neighbor's rent for month, from his 2013+ Federal Income Taxes.

          With the internet and the rush to be first, accuracy in articles and overall reporting fell by the wayside a long time ago.  I had a recent newspaper article on a book and after the writer got the initial press release from the publisher, he wrote the article (never contacted me or the publisher with questions), added a bunch of inaccurate info like the state I lived in, where I was born and where I went to school (ALL of this info was not even close to being accurate).  Of course, I had it corrected. 

          So the rule is, always check with the source or an official rep. for the source.

              Yes, if he was retained by Pedro, he is his authorized rep. (unless he hired a PR firm to issue statements for him as well).

                Ok, but just because his Lawyer says "that rumor is not true" does not mean Pedro never said he would pay someones rent. It just means a Lawyer is being paid to say things.

                  Well that is why Pedro retained counsel....if he is a competent attorey, he will provide him valuable advice on the pros and cons of every potential action. If Pedro jumped the gun with promises and still wants to pay rent for the block, hopefully counsel will help him with a logical organized way to do it. That is why one retains counsel.

                    Right, except paying the rent would have been cheaper. lol.

                        Perhaps not, in the long run. Avoiding open ended promises may save Pedro time, misery, and legal fees defending himself down the road.  And, like anything in life, good advice is not free.

                          I recommend paying for some "good advice" before attempting such a thing.
