  • Can someone give away my shares of a family owned business without my knowledge

    I live in central florida and my shares were to distributed to other family members

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    This largely depends on the type of business structure, whether disclosure was required by an operating agreement, or if no operating agreement was present, whether disclosure was required to avoid a potential breach of the other party's statutory fiduciary duties (if applicable). My recommendation is for you to contact a qualified business law attorney to review the specific facts of your case in order to fully advise you.

  • How long does state of Florida have to charge after accident for dui. accident was dec i went to hospital no charge yet

    went to hospital possible blood drawn can they still arrest at this time.I recvd a ticket for open container

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    This depends on the level of the offense that can be charged. For example, a DUI that results in serious bodily injury can be charged as a felony, with a significantly longer statute of limitations period than a misdemeanor DUI. Moreover receiving a civil traffic infraction does not preclude a subsequent criminal charge. My best recommendation is to contact a lawyer to review the known facts of the case and advise you on the various scenarios and charges that can be brought.

  • If a home has a mortgage, how can it be quit-claimed to a member of the family?

    I purchased a home and have a 30 year mortgage. I would like to quit-claim this property to my son with the current mortgage. Is this allowable or does the home need to be refinanced?

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    This will largely depend on the terms of your mortgage agreement. I would advise that you schedule a consultation with an attorney to review your mortgage documents to determine if this is the proper course of action. After that, drafting the quitclaim deed and recording it is a simple process.

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    Under Florida Statute Section 90.610, prior felony convictions can be used for impeachment purposes unless the convictions are so remote in time that they have no bearing on credibility. Generally this threshold is ten years, but I would recommend that you speak with a qualified attorney in your area to discuss the full facts of your case.

  • What is the penalty for trespassing on fenced property for the first time in Citrus county florida?

    I was hog hunting with dogs and friends on someone else's property and was stopped by an FWC officer. I am being summoned to court on a first degree misdemeanor for trespassing. Besides a fence, there was no other warning before the owner pressed ...

    Jeffrey’s Answer

    I recommend that you contact an attorney without delay. The fact there was a fence is an important issue that needs to be fully reviewed. If you have no record, then you may very well be eligible for a pre-trial diversion/intervention program, and assuming the program is offered. Again, I recommend that you speak with an attorney to review all options available.
