 Agent denies Law fled from officers - The Boston Globe
The agent for Patriots cornerback Ty Law yesterday denied allegations that Law led police on a foot chase through the South Beach section of Miami Beach early Saturday morning, which led to his arrest on misdemeanor charges of failure to obey an officer and resisting an officer without violence.
Law obeyed, but, the report alleges, he pulled off, forcing a second officer to follow his vehicle.
Police say Law then ran off and after the officers caught him, told them not to touch him "because he is a professional athlete." Law was taken into custody and released several hours later from Dade County Jail on $1,500 cash bond.

When you go with an agent you sign a contract with them and what you have stated should be listed so you should check the contract you signed with them.
Look at the agreement you signed with the first agent but you will almost certainly find that it says something like they have 12 weeks to introduce a client that eventually buys your house.
So SOLD means, the day when that client puts an offer to the agent that you decide to accept and later leads to contract exchange.

 Allen E. Kaye: New York Attorney, US Immigration Law, Citizenship, Naturalization, Visa
If the warrant is for your premises, you cannot stop law enforcement agents from conducting the search, however, you should still assert that you do not consent to the search, as this will limit the search to what is specified in the warrant.
If a law enforcement agent asks for any of your documents or for your computer, access to your computer, or for anything else, check to see that the item that they have requested is listed in the warrant.
A common tactic used by law enforcement agents is to assert that it is "unpatriotic" not to answer questions or that individuals with nothing to hide would cooperate.

 Careers: Law: Patent Agent Opportunities
I can help you with ideas about what law schools or paralegal programs might be right for you, about what colleges courses to take as a pre-law student, and about non-traditional ways to break into the legal support roles.
I think that client work without a JD as a patent agent on an "indie" basis is more dicey, but I'll bet somebody out there is doing it.
But I really think you need on the job training, at least 3 years in a law firm as a patent agent, and ideally another 3 in law school (you'll just do better as a lawyer financially, and you have great IP schools in N CA), to really thrive.
