    Workers' compensation insurance is not very expensive. The consequences of being without one can be.

    Since you've already done the work, he owes you regardless of a contract. This is called "quantum meruit." Sue for both breach of an oral contract, supported by emails, and also for the reasonable value of your services. Good luck!

    File it again, armed with the knowledge provided to you by the previous two attorneys. Otherwise, your corporation could get suspended. You can file online.

    In addition to a nondisclosure agreement as suggested by the previous attorney, you should also make it clear that you are the owner of the idea ( which should be properly defined) and that the website developer cannot use that idea in his own work. I do not suggest that you try to handle this contract yourself as courts look for specific language when enforcing this type of agreements. Consult an experienced contract attorney in your area.

    Under the California Constitution, article 15, parties can contract for interest on a loan primarily for personal, family or household purposes at a rate not exceeding 10% per year. The interest is on the unpaid balance. Penalties for charging an interest that violates the usury law are severe. You should use this point to force him to settle and agree to a payment plan that you can sustain.

    As the other attorney said, you may have a cause of action for defamation - slander if the statements were verbal. The statements, however, have to be false, in order to be slanderous. Under Cal Code of Civil Procedure section 46 (3) slander includes false oral statements communicated to others that tend to directly injure one in respect to one’s office, profession, trade or business, either by imputing to him general disqualification in those respects which the office or other occupation...

    I agree with the previous attorney's response. You should form a corporation only when you are ready, simply because it can be expensive to maintain a corporation. Once you file the articles and they are accepted, your corporation is registered but formation is complete only when you have completed all formalities including adequate capitalization, electing a board of directors, appointing officers and issuing shares. You must also either qualify the shares of the corporation or find an...

    I agree with all my colleagues above. I would like to add though that if you are required to be licensed by the State of California , you may not be able to form an LLC. Certain licensed professionals are prohibited from providing services through a limited liability company, even though that rule is changing slowly. However, like my colleagues stated, you should consult an attorney and a CPA and make them part of your team. Forming the wrong entity or forming it poorly can cost you a lot...

    It, of course, depends upon the specific language of the contract, and when asked to give legal advice I never do so without reviewing the contract first. However, since this answer does not constitute legal advice, in very general terms, if the parties had agreed to a flat fee arrangement, the hours do not count. Under most circumstances, flat rate denotes value billing. You invoice for what you estimate is the worth of your services taken as a whole, and not the value of your time. She is...

    Is the title of the house in both names? What document allocates the respective ownership interests? An interest in real property has to be in writing, or some writing has to exist to prove the interest. Most other agreements may be oral, with some exceptions, but there is a shorter statute of limitations to enforce an oral contract. As my other colleagues suggested, contact an attorney to determine which contract is enforceable and what part may not be, and what evidence you need to defend...
