    Yes. As already mentioned, it is a good way of reducing tax liability. I would advise that prior to partnering up meet with an attorney to have corporate by-laws drafted and agreed to by you and your friend. The by-laws will control how the company is run and will also have the ownership percentages and profit share in writing.

    If you want to do anything about the breach of the contract you need to either hire a lawyer - maybe one will do it on a contingent fee basis but that might not work as the lawyer would be paid a percentage fees from the money awarded (if any) and it depends on what the grant money was supposed to be used for as to whether your non-profit could use the money for other means - or read the arbitration clause and file the claim with the agreed upon arbitrator.

    If the alley is connected to a public street, it is a public highway. As Mr. Lawrence and the other attorney stated, you won't be able to fight it on those grounds - use another defense...

    Was there anything written and filed in your or any other employees HR files regarding these incidents? Based on what you have written the best thing you can do is meet with an experienced employment law attorney in New Haven, CT.

    You should contest the infraction within 15 days of issuance. Doing so will allow you time to find an attorney to help you with the ticket. He marked you as going 35? Or that it was a 35 zone? What day of the week was this? A school day? Were the other cars also pulled over and issues tickets? Or just you?

    4 alcohol classes every 2 weeks for how long? The best course of action is to not consume alcohol for the time period of the treatment which you were ordered to do. Usually there is a requirement of no consumption of alcohol or non-prescribed drugs during the period of the suspended sentence and/or treatment ordered by the court. If you follow the orders of the court, there should not be a concern whether or not the agencies use ETG testing (yes I've read it can be unreliable). If you need...

    You should review a copy of the judgment and sentence and conditions of probation to see what is writing. If you had an attorney represent you, contact him or her to go over it and/or speak with probation.

    I agree with Mr. Alexander. Additionally, if your spouse's name is recorded and on file as an owner of the property, his signature may have to be notarized on the sale documents. In order to do so he may have to visit a U.S. Embassy.

    You should definitely have a corporate, business, and/or tax attorney assist with you leaving the business. Is there a first right of refusal to the other partner(s)? The attorney can review the operating agreement or by-laws to make sure you are able to sell and get the most for your amount of ownership. A business valuation will need to be done to determine the value of your share(s).

    I agree with Mr. Alexander. Document the noise. Notify the manager each occurrence. If management does nothing and you have documented the noise and also documented notification to management, you may have grounds to get out of your lease.
