    You definitely will want to consult a good business lawyer (with demonstrated tax expertise) and possibly a real estate attorney. If you find a corporate lawyer with real estate AND tax expertise, that would be optimal, and there are lawyers out there with this mix of expertise. One of the numerous advantages of not putting all of the company's properties into one entity is that, unfortunately, you and your brother may come upon an irreconcilable difference, even though it may be difficult...

  2. Management company edited/falsified emails to cover up their mistake in renting out property - Any Contract Damages or Fraud?

    You may have a claim, but you will need to get the contract and all communications between you and the management company reviewed by a Georgia lawyer. For example, one item of contention appears to be the dispossessory fee, but some management companies cover their time and expense for dispossessors by incorporating a flat/fixed dispossessory fee, where it is not the owner reimbursing the managing agent strictly for the "filing fee" for the dispossessory, but paying additional compensation...

    You definitely need to answer timely (within 30 days of being served with the Summons and Complaint), but I think you may also be asking for the specific "how" to respond (i.e., "what defenses do I have to the lawsuit?"). Unfortunately, I think it will be difficult in this AVVO forum for an attorney to provide you with your specific defenses as your defenses could be numerous and depend on additional facts. For example, depending on the additional facts not in your question, there could be...

    It depends. The Pennsylvania-headquartered company must have certain "minimum contacts" with the State of Georgia for a Georgia court to have jurisdiction. The minimum contacts include (a) transacting business in Georgia (which it may have done with you), (b) committing a tort that injured you in Georgia or (c) committing a tort that injured you in Georgia that originated outside of Georgia (i.e., a product manufactured in PA that injured you in GA), but only if the PA-headquartered company...

  5. Judge issued my tenant a Writ of Procession, he continues to appeal. How can I stop frivolous appeals.

    Unfortunately, you cannot "stop" the appeal, but you can file a motion for the Court of Appeals to impose sanctions against your tenant for filing a frivolous appeal. Again, the Court of Appeals only rules on that motion once it determines that the grounds for your tenant's appeal were, in fact, frivolous. The maximum sanction is $2,500.00. If your tenant knows what he is doing, however, he can drag this out (especially if you are pro se, not getting strategic and tactical legal advice and...

  6. If defendant did not file their answer & counterclaim in the 30 days the court allows, how can I make this work to my benefit.

    It is true that the defendant in your case has 30 days to file its answer and counterclaim or it will be in default, BUT the defendant has an additional 15 days to "open" the default (i.e., make the default go away). The defendant does not have to prove anything. All the defendant has to do to "open the default" is pay all costs to the court (i.e., the filing fee you paid, the fee you paid to have the defendant served). Once the defendant pays the costs, that is the end of the story - there...

    I will keep this simple (without trying to figure out what your ex-wife allegedly forged). If your ex-wife did what you allege and YOU [not a third party] relied on the forged signature and YOU [not merely a third party] were damaged by it, then that is a civil fraud claim that you could bring to sue her for damages that directly resulted from her fraud. The problem is, we do not know what she allegedly forged and we do not know whether or how the forged signature on the document actually...

  8. I purchased a used engine with a warranty and now my car is not able to drive. How should I proceed to regain my transportation?

    Your problem is that you will have to establish that the car problems are, more likely than not, due to the used engine that the mechanic installed. Your 1-year warranty likely is expressly limited to the engine, so any collateral issues with your car are likely excluded by the warranty. This is not really a "Lemon Law" issue, but a straight warranty or negligence matter (i.e., lemon law in Georgia is limited to the purchase of new vehicles) and, unfortunately, you will need to do some leg...

    So long as you did not provide a warranty to the buyer, you have very little to worry about. If the buyer sued you in magistrate/small claims court, the buyer still would have to prove either that you gave the buyer a warranty or you knowingly concealed from the buyer that the console was not in working order when sold. Further (and just for clarity so that you have some additional comfort engaging in non-warranty private sale transactions), Georgia's lemon law only applies to "new "...

    One option is to contact the State Bar of Georgia if you simply want to lodge a complaint. Here is the link for the Consumer Assistance Program: http://www.gabar.org/committeesprogramssections/programs/consumerassistanceprogram/index.cfm.
