Would I be able to attempt to remove a UD case to federal court based on the facts: 1. I am not a US citizen or resident 2. Claim of retaliation
No. retaliation is not a "federal question".
Diversity also requires a minimum amount of $75,000
I’m looking to soon open an onshore IRA LLC whose primary investment will be an offshore IRA LLC. Both IRA LLCs will hold passive investments. I currently live and am a non-citizen resident of Peru. When I leave Peru in a few years I’ll probably ...
Did a quick Google search. See nothing resembling "official" (e..g IRS sites) on the subject but instead lots of commercial companies trying to make money from some new "theory" which really doesn't work.
An IRA defers income until distribution which becomes mandatory and there are certain disqualified assets.
An LLC is used to obtain limited liability and I can see zero benefit over insurance for protecting IRA assets.
Then, two levels of IRA LLCs - someone is making double money for something you didn't need in the first place.
If $800 a year is your problem, how much do you think two layers of LLCs is going to cost in terms of lawyers and CPAs/tax filings.
Be very suspicious about exotic legal structures not mentioned by the IRS, and "never let the tax tail wag the business dog."
I need some assistance in drafting my brief. I wondered if working with an attorney in this capacity as a service, off record, is "legal" who can help me with my document? I see some of this offered on the internet.
Yes you can hire a lawyer to help you "off the record". A lawyer may appear in court, or on pleadings etc. "on the record" in which case one uses a "substitution of attorney form" or not "on the record" and you appear in pro per.See question

If you have a billing dispute with your lawyer, you can force fee arbitration. If you lose, you can appeal. If the lawyer loses, lawyer cannot appeal. See: http://www.calbar.ca.gov/Attorneys/MemberServices/FeeArbitration.aspxSee question
It's been 10 years and my lawyer is saying he doesn't have any records form back then and is asking me to provide records of my retainer. is this legal? Shouldn't he have records? Do I have any recourse here
Lawyers don't need records from 10 years ago. Why you waited ten years is not clear. Do you have your records of ten years ago? I don't think the lawyer's bank or your bank will have records of ten years ago.See question
Had a lawyer who had another lawyer not knowledgeable in certain field do all the research , looked up wrong things that don't even pertain to type of case , and what seems like excessive time spent to complete a task and bill for it . I didn't kn...
Everyone has to learn sometimes, but you have a valid enough point to discuss the billing issues with the lead lawyer. I am sure there is a "win-win" potential in such a discussion.See question
Way I understood it is even setting up payment arrangement for lesser amount also restarts the statue of limitations on a defaulted loan agreement. Is this correct ? Have not yet made any payments.
Yes, making a payment would re-commence the statute of limitations on an "open book account" legal theory.See question

The conversion options do not appear to apply to a corporation converting to professional corporation. Your concept of merger is feasible, or the other contracting party could just agree to sign with the professional entity to be formed.
Often it is not the legal questions one asks but the questions one doesn't know need asking that are the most important for a startup entity. You should think in terms of a long term relationship with a lawyer and a CPA.See question

Where is your signed Operating Agreement? You all thought you would save money going in (no lawyer, no CPA) but it will cost you much more now.
Without an Operating Agreement you are left with the California Statute on LLCs. It is not easy to "kick someone out". Liability for a loan depends on your loan documents and I suspect one or more of the Members had to guaranty the loan. Just because you "kick someone out" of the LLC doesn't mean the bank will release them from a loan if they signed. It is possible that only the LLC is liable but it would be the first time I have heard of an unsecurred, unguaranteed loan to a start up.See question
