They basically sent us a bunch of bogus leads (twenty of which only 2 came through) and have now sent me to collections for non payment of lead fees. Do I have any recourse in this matter? Please advise! Thank you for your time and thoughts!
You likely have a case for breach of contract because the lead service did not perform as contracted. It's likely not a large enough case that it is worth suing over but you could bring a counterclaim for their breach by failing to perform if they ever sued you.See question

You need to get clear of the LLC you have a minority interest in before competing with it. You can get clear by selling your interest or suing for dissolution. It's exceptionally risky to take a corporate opportunity from a business entity you owe fiduciary duties to.See question
A Breach of Contract suit for a kitchen remodel was filed almost a year and a half ago. My lawyer has told me recently that I could sue for his fees.
You likely have a claim under the Home Repair and Remodeling Act or the Consumer Fraud Act. Both statutes are implicated in lawsuits against contractors and both allow for attorney fees. It's never a sure thing to win fees under these statutes so it's not something to count on but does help get cases settled sooner.See question

If what was said isn't true you have a viable case for defamation and damages are presumed because it's relates to your occupation.
However, despite presumed damages the case likely would not yield much unless you can show the comments hurt your employment prospects or caused some grave emotional harm.See question

It's an expensive process. Unfortunately these trust fights can ultimately result in all the trust assets going to lawyers. You can fight it out to the bitter end and win but it will cost you a significant amount of money up front and cost you on the back end because your opponent is likely draining the trust to pay his lawyer.
Consider working with your lawyer on some alternative to an hourly fee that gets your incentives aligned. Goal should be to work fast and lean while keeping the pressure on. As pressure mounts on the defendant settlement is easier.
Make sure you have an attorney who is willing and able to take it to trial. You don't want to be in a situation where your attorney is pushing settlement simply because he is inexperienced in anything else.
More often than not a settlement is the only way to "win" a case like this so you may be on the right track.See question

I'm sorry you had to go through this. There is a actually a fair bit of litigation on the value of LinkedIn connections but normally in the context of a departing employee. I have no idea based on these facts if you have a viable cause of action but it sounds like something that should never happen and you have an ownership interest in those connections. I'd like to learn more.See question

With the small amount at stake the department of labor is likely the way to go.
You can file suit under the Illinois wage payment and collection act in the county your live in or worked in and get attorney fees and interest paid in addition to the amount owed. The law is squarely against deadbeat employers.See question
