    I would suggest that you file a grievance with the precinct (probably W.LA) desk sargent. That will initiate an investigation which should result in the cops backing off...unless, of course, the investigation contradicts your claim.

    It seems like you're trying to find someone who agrees with you, and that is not what an attorney is trained to do. You hired a lawyer to protect your interests but don't want to accept his opinions. Unless you have found him to be unreliable or unresponsive, you should rely on his opinions. Otherwise, get a new lawyer, but don't expect to hire anyone reputable simply becuase he agrees with you.

    We would need more information to answer this question accurately, such as whether you currently have a partnership agreement and what it says. Assuming that no agreement exists, generally you need a majority of partners to make major decisions. In your case, a combination of any two partners would constitute a majority.
