$100,000 arbitration award. Why is my lawyer taking 75% of it for fees and costs?: I recently received an arbitration award of $100,000 for my car accident but my lawyers are saying they are entitled to $75,000 for fees (45%) and costs ($30k). The medical liens were $15,000 leaving me with $10,000.

This does not seem right or fair at all! Can my law firm do this to me?

I'm starting out as an s corp with just me as the officer. Do I need to assign shares/stocks? Do I need to assign directors?: I have a consulting business and want to formalize it for both legal and tax advantages. I'm thinking that s corp would be the best legal structure. Since I'm really a sole proprietor, certain sections of the articles of incorporation doesn't seem relevant to me. Do I still need to fill in all those sections? The main ones is assigning shares/stocks and directors. If I need to assign shares/stocks, do I come up with an arbitrary number and can that be changed in the future? Do I need a board of directors?

A full consultation would be necessary to properly advise you.
