    Regardless of where you decide to incorporate if you are in California, they are going to make you foreign qualify because all your employees are here (you) and you are operating the physical business here. If you file elsewhere, you are going to be doing the filing for that other state and in California and still have to do the FTB fee. Generally people sign up in Nevada only to get dinged by the state of California anyway.

    If you are going to be representing a boxer, I suggest you familiarize with the California State Athletic Commission website. It has the list of all the regulations you need to follow to remain in good standing for training someone and for representation.

    Authority is the law you rely on. Statutes, caselaw, etc. Start at a law library and ask for help or seek out Legal Aid.

    I completely agree with everything Ms. Johns said but just want to add, being compliant with your governance of the LLC is important to maintain your limited liability. That means not using it as you would a personal piggy bank and keeping and treating it as a separate business. That means no checks from your business checking to pay personal expenses. Treat yourself as an employee of your LLC. That is regardless of setting up an extra managing entity. Also, if you have the extra corp...

    Everyone is right in that he likely won't remember you. If you are REALLY uneasy, then just realize there is a statute of limitations on filing misdemeanors of one year. Your theft sounds like a petty theft which is a misdemeanor. Without taking or having any information though, they wouldn't be able to, and likely aren't going to take the time to track you down for $7.50.

    I'm not sure what you read on the internet or where and how credible it is, but with some felonies they cannot be reduced even if you received probation. Depending on the passage of time of when you were convicted and sentenced, and If your offense has been changed to no longer be a wobbler, or if your attorney did not advise you correctly and it actually wasn't a wobbler at the time, you need to get an attorney. If your attorney was ineffective, and the only reason you pled was because of...
