    Was he an employee of the restaurant? Did he have the authority or apparent authority to bind the restaurant? If so, you may be able to pursue the restaurant under an agency theory. Further, you may have a claim against the person that misrepresented their ownership interest for fraud, which is generally not dischargeable in bankruptcy. You should talk to an attorney and have them review the terms of your contract with you for a comprehensive analysis.

    If you fail to collect and pay taxes that you are legally required to pay, not only will you be liable for the amount of the taxes, but you will face additional penalties and interest for failing to pay on time. The taxing agency/body may issue tax warrants and/or liens against you. If this happens, they will have the ability to pursue collection of the unpaid amounts due. Tools that they may use to collect against you include, but are not limited to garnishment of wages, garnishment of bank...

    If the tenant has a lease through October you are stuck with them unless they breach the terms of the lease and you evict them or you reach an agreement with them. You may try negotiating an early move out with them. If you offer to pay their moving expenses and some additional compensation they may be willing to move. Good luck.

    This simple answer is; yes, you can register multiple trade names when you complete a Master Business License Application. There is a fee of $5.00 for each trade name registered. Although that answers your questions, you should carefully consider the implications of doing business as a sole proprietor. Among other things, you are personally liable for the debts and liabilities of the business. You should at least consider the possibility of forming one or more business entities. Besides...

    You will need to have your non-compete agreement reviewed by an attorney in order to get an answer to your question. Non-compete are narrowly construed by Courts, which is typically a benefit to the employee. The potential repercussions could be substantial if you are violating the non-compete so it would be prudent to act quickly.

    An employment lawyer and/or a business lawyer may be able to assist you, but more importantly, you should find an attorney that has experience in dealing with noncompete agreements. Just because an attorney focuses in the areas of employment or business does not necessarily mean that they have a lot of experience with noncompetes. Noncompetes must be narrowly drawn and reasonable in order to be enforceable in Washington. There must also be consideration exchanged. It would be wise to consult...

    It is the subcontractor's burden to initiate a foreclosure action on time, as well as the subcontractor's burden to prove that they provided all required notices and were properly licensed with the State. The problem that you face is; if the subcontractor did in fact comply with all of the requirements, they are entitled to recover their attorney's fees, interest and court costs associated with the foreclosure action. You have to weigh your risks and rewards. Is it worth waiting to see...

    I'm not exactly sure what your question is, but you should meet with an attorney to determine what you rights are and to develop a plan of action. Although the idea of you and your neighbors meeting with an attorney together sounds like a cooperative way to go about it, a conflict of interest exists and the attorney would not be able to represent both of you in a disputed matter. If the conflict of interest were waived by both parties for the purposes of obtaining a legal opinion from the...

    Generally, Social Security benefits are exempt from garnishment. However, other assets, including money from a part-time job are subject to seizure by a judgment creditor. You may wish to segregate Social Security money from other funds or assets. The cost of an attorney will vary depending on numerous factors including their experience, the complexity of the matter, instructions that you provide, how vigorous of a challenge the opposing party presents. Attorney's fees and costs are...
