  • How to stop online harassment that has compromised not only my reputation but the reputation of company that holds US trademark

    Since a recent break-up, the other party has engaged in online slander about me and the company I started. Posting on Facebook and my companies website slander and derogatory comments. The domain had a root directory unknown to myself and the hos...

    It sounds like you may have a case for defamation. The order for protection route rarely works unless there is an iminent harm (as defined by a Court). My firm is here in Tempe (on Mill) and is one of the leading firms in online defamation. The Court route would be the best, since you've tried to reason with him/her.

  • What service do I need for handling an Arizona LLC and ensuring privacy?

    I have an Arizona LLC and need to set things up to use some sort of service for the mailing/business/forwarding address and to ensure privacy. I've contacted some Registered Agent services, but they don't seem to provide a mailing/business address...

    Aaron’s Answer

    If you have the money to spend you can always get an office with regus. I believe they scan and email your mail. Mailboxes etc. may do something and UPS boxes as well. As far as registered agent services go its probably better keep a different mailing address and a registered agent address since they do two different things. For my clients we usually do both, and scan/forward for a fee.

    A lot of it depends on why you want it (obviously for privacy reasons) but be aware that if they're scanning/forwarding then they can see what you're getting. Its a trade off.

  • Can I use a business account for personal expenses?

    I recently learned that my bank was going to begin charging me $15 a month for a maintenence fee on my personal checking account. I also learned that if I had a business checking account that the fee would be waived. Both accounts require a $1 min...

    no, that is not legal. it's not worth the 15 dollars a month to risk it even if it was. Most banks won't let you open up an account unless you have verified documents, not just a dba. however, it does depend on the state, but I would not recommend doing that.

  • Was anything illegal done while chatting on myspace?

    Lets say you are talking to a female on myspace who says she is 18. You set up a meeting. Before you meet you get a call from her angry parents saying she is 15. You had no idea. Was anything illegal done and will the police take any action?

    Aaron’s Answer

    There a lot of factors that depend on this. Specifically what the conversation involved, and why the meeting was going to take place. Police and the FBI do this quite often. Although you may have possible defenses, the fact remains that she was 18 (or at least her parents say so). The police can and very may well do something if it is reported. I would probably consult with a local attorney regarding this if you think that it will not be resolved soon.

  • What do i do if my nude pic was placed on a porn site, with my name?

    i was a minor and i sent a picture to a guy that iam not sure who the guy may be. Now iam being harrassed in the street and this picture was taken in 2006., but was uploaded on may 18 2010.

    Aaron’s Answer

    If the picture was taken when you were under age I would contact the police. There will be ways that they can track how that picture was posted, and the website it was posted on. They should be able to get a subpoena from the internet service provider to track down the computer that links it, as well as take it down if it was of you as a minor.
