Hi there, there could be.. but no one here will be able to fully advise you. One would want to see the agreement/s you signed with the attorney. There are specific steps the attorney should have gone through before representing both of you. You can call your local bar association for a referral for an attorney who specializes on ethical violations, or you can contact the NM (assuming that is where the attorney is licensed) ethical board. Good luck.
I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I agree with my colleague-hopefully there is a written agreement. If so, take it to a lawyer and he or she will advise you on the best way to proceed pursuant to the agreement. There may be an alternative dispute resolution (e.g., arbitration) provision or notice provision. Best of luck.
If you feel like you're being harassed or discriminated against because you are Native American, contact a local employment lawyer as suggested by another attorney. If you're not being paid what you believe you are worth, you are always free to seek other employment. Good luck.
You best course of action is to sit down with a business attorney to discuss what exactly you would be doing, and which and how various laws would be implicated. A thorough and detailed answer cannot be given online without further information. Good luck.
Since you have this publishing agreement and you're ready to begin with your book, I think it would be well worth you paying for a few hours to get a more thorough review of the proposed agreement and any advice from an attorney regarding said agreement. Unfortunately, this type of a site is not meant for such specific advice and it would be unwise (and in certain circumstances, unethical) to offer specific advice. That said, there are some terrific lawyers who contribute to this site--use the "...
Sorry to hear about your situation. I agree with Atty. Kerrigan. You are not obligated to change the date; what you entitled to is determined by the written agreement, if any. You can demand your money back. If they will not do so after you ask, ask an attorney to draft a simple demand letter-you can find one using Avvo's "Find a Lawyer" feature. Best of luck to you.
Legally, no... there is no requirement as the other attorneys have stated. However, because you have found your way here I'm going to guess at stating that you know there are many downfalls to not having an attorney, accountant/tax advisor, and perhaps other professionals on board. At least consult with a business attorney before going live. Avvo has a great "Find a Lawyer" feature or you can contact your local bar association for a referral. Good luck and congratulations on your new business.
I agree with Atty. Cohen. Please use the Find a Lawyer feature on this site and/or contact your local bar association. As previously stated, many attorneys will work with payment plans, however, I think most will require some money up front to cover costs and the ability to stay in business. Best of luck to you.
You are going to need to consult with an attorney and possibly hire one to review the trust document. Only after a proper review will attorney be able to provide you with an opinion regarding your sister's actions. Use the Find a Lawyer feature on this site or contact your local bar association. Best of luck.
