Increase in Management / Legal Service Fee

Hello:
In 2008, we signed a contract with a management company for management and legal services in which the Compensation clause states as follows: “The Agent shall be paid for services rendered by it under this agreement on the 1st day of the calendar month in the amount of $400.00. Every 3 years the Agent will assess whether any increase in the management / legal fee will be necessary. If an increase is necessary, the fee will not increase more than $30.00 per month.”

They did not increase the fee in 2011 after three years of the original contract. However, in 2014, they want to increase the fee in the amount of $60.00 effective January 1, 2015. When we pointed out to them the terms of the contract, they wanted to cancel the contract immediately although both parties are required to give 30 days prior notice and so we had to accept the illegal increase of $60.00. We think that this is a breach of the contract, violation of the contract law and unethical. The management company is owned and operated by a legal professional. What is your opinion in this strange issue?

My wife was detained for shop lifting  at Walmart in TX. She was inside the store parking the little electric basket cars they provide. She hadn’t gotten off the cart when they detained and called police. She was arrested and taken to jail. Is that legal? I thought you had to go out the doors before detaining you and being charged.

If a subpoena to witness is causing me severe anxiety and they are only subpoenaing me to verify some video tape and a receipt I Happen to gather for them, is it necessary to go to court? Or is there some way out of it? I work for a retail company and I just got video tape and a receipt for them, of which the incident didn’t even take place at the store. It’s a murder trial and the video is just items purchased by someone not even accused.. Help me! Anxiety and stress as I don’t like to go to court.
