    While your facts are not completely clear (how many original LLC owners were there?), I agree with the two answers before mine. In addition, learn a lesson from this mess - you obviously set up this LLC yourselves. There is a reason lawyers are involved in setting up these entities, and that is to ensure it is done PROPERLY. If an attorney had been engaged to handle forming the LLC, you would have a written agreement setting out everyone's obligations and rights as to the LLC. PLEASE learn...

  2. The original owner of a service company have a good law suit against a manager for starting new company while working for him?

    Is your friend also the manager that started the new, competing business? You do not state that in your post but the answer by attorney Frank Natoli seems to assume this. If there was no contract between the service company and the manager, the service company may well have claims against the manager for tortious interference with existing business relationships and with unlawful use of the service company's confidential information (client list - assuming it was confidential). If there...

    Mr. Barnes is correct - gather everything you have, especially the e-mails from the client acknowledging the debt, and file in small claims court.

  4. What is the best course of action to pursue $15000 in unpaid invoices from a General Contractor?

    Answered 12 months ago.

    You need to send the general contractor a letter, sent via certified mail, demanding payment of your invoices (include copies of each invoice with the letter) in full within 30 days or you will sue. In the mean time, you should seek the advice of a collections attorney. The total amount you are owed is too much for small claims/JP court, so you will need to sue in county or district court. If you are not incorporated, you can still represent yourself, but I would not advise that course of...

    I agree completely with Michael Doland's answer - don't pay employees in cash, and now is the time to get together a team consisting of a CPA and a lawyer. I strongly advise AGAINST online corporate filing services, though I have to admit I get a lot of work because of them fixing the mess they often create. These services may not give you legal advice, and generally do not ensure everything you need to start your newly formed entity is completed, or completed correctly. A CPA should also...

    If you signed a contingency fee contract (and you state that you did), that should govern how your settlement is divided. If the contingency fee contract provides that your attorney is entitled to a fee calculated on all sums collected or recovered on your behalf, then the attorney is entitled to a fee on any medical costs recovered on your behalf. You say that the attorney stated that she would not charge on the medical (I would find this very odd, as the medical is usually a very large...

    I say go straight to the police and for heaven's sake, do not delete a single text, voicemail, or e-mail from this guy! Every communication attempt by this guy is evidence. I see potential criminal complaints for extortion (also called blackmail), stalking, and telephone harassment, just to name a few. See what law enforcement can do for you by way of a protective order. I would seek the assistance of a civil attorney to try and get a restraining order against this guy only AFTER going to...

    When your ex-mother-in-law paid for the furniture, was there any discussion of paying her back? Was this a loan, or was this a gift from her to you and your husband? How was the furniture divided in the divorce? When did she pay for the furniture? Answer these questions and I and others reading this question can better help you.

  9. Can I fire an attorney in Houston, TX via email?

    Answered about 1 year ago.

    2 lawyer answers

    The short answer is yes, you can fire an attorney using e-mail. However, you most likely are going to need your file (if you don't have a copy of all your records already - my clients get copies of everything as the case progresses) if you have a pending matter, so you should make sure and request copies of your file documents. If you are in a pending lawsuit, you would do best to find a new lawyer first and get that lawyer to take over the case for you from your prior attorney. Good luck to you.

    You should check with the State Bar to see if you can make a claim for restitution through the Client Security Fund. You may not be able to because the Bar did not take action on your parents' particular matter before the lawyer was disbarred, but I am not certain so definitely CALL THEM and ask - the number is (877) 953-5535 - and ask to speak with someone about the Client Security Fund. I'd call myself and post that here but it is after 7 p.m. Because he has already been disbarred, it may...
