    If you have not already, you should contact a local attorney as soon as possible for a case consultation. You should not settle for $7,500 especially if you have been advised that you will need surgery. Also, do not give a written or recorded statement to Walmart or the insurance company.

    Usually the judge and attorneys will discuss the status of the case, discovery, potential discovery issues, and the possibility of mediation. The judge might also set a final status conference and trial date. Matthew Blair 310-550-1555 www.chakmakislaw.com

    Generally, non-compete clauses and other restrictions inhibiting competition banned in California. However, there are limited exceptions authorized by statue. The exceptions can be found in California’s Business and Profession’s Code Sections 16601-16602.5. With regard to your specific situation, it would first depend on whether or not you are carrying on the business as it was prior to you purchasing it. With the limited facts given, if all of the ownership interest in the company was...

    You have already asked a similar question on this forum before. You need to retain a personal injury attorney. Do not give a statement to the insurance company or the company without an attorney. Matthew Blair 310-550-1555 www.chakmakislaw.com

    The enforcement of a U.S. judgment in Japan can be done. You will need to have all of the court documents translated and then you will need to serve the judgement in Japan in accordance with the Hague Service Convention. Everything must be done correctly for the judgment to be enforced. I strongly suggest you consult an attorney for this matter. Matthew Blair 310-550-1555 www.chakmakislaw.com

    The contract you are asking for and need is not necessarily a "simple" one. I suggest you contact a local business attorney to discuss the details of the proposed agreement. Once all of the various factors are considered a proper contract can be drawn up and you will be able to rest assured that your interests are protected.

    Something like this should really be done by an experienced employment attorney who know how to properly write and implement such policy's. Not only should you have a written sexual harassment policy, but also a written disciplinary policy. Matthew Blair 310-550-1555 www.beverlyhillsbusinesslawyers.com

    More information is required to give you a meaningful analysis. In short, coercion, threats, false statements, or improper persuasion by one party to a contract can void the contract. Does your son have any evidence of coercion? I suggest your son contact a local attorney as soon as possible to see if he has a case. I hope this helps!
