We never got around to changing the business structure. It is a sole proprietorship in her name. We have vending and a business bank account. Is there an easy way to just change or do we file for new business license and essentially start over completely, applying for vending accounts, etc.? Trying... View More
I know no one likes this answer because it's exactly what you are trying to avoid...but you need to speak with a business attorney directly. While we can give general advice about what you need to do, there's almost always something unique to your situation that can adversely impact your...View More
It's doubtful you can sue the realtor successfully (and even if you could, probably not worth it to do so). But you should consider filing a Realtor Association complaint as it can affect their realtor accreditation and possibly even their state real estate license.
He has a “to do list” with 10-12 things he wants done, and if one is not he would take 10% each of our tips for the day (cash and extra gratuity tips). He also takes them and holds on to them till Friday and then gives them to us.
Depends on whether he's at least paying you minimum wage ($7.25). If not, then he can get in some big trouble for that scheme, and you may want to consult an employment law attorney. Employment law attorneys don't typically charge consultation fees, and in some cases, may take some cases...View More
Hire a local attorney to defend the case. If you don't do anything, you will have a default judgment entered against you, and at some point, the plaintiff may pursue assets of yours in Virginia (if any), and if the amount is significant enough, possibly against you in Florida.
Have a civil case in VA where a person is trying to sue me for what others are stating on a Facebook Page. I'm one of the administrators of the page, however, I don't really monitor the page much. I understand the basics of libel, however if someone people are stating things that might be... View More
Generally...no. If you did absolutely nothing else to "re-publish" the statement, then there's almost no possible way that the plaintiff can allege you engaged in any wrongdoing. It would only be wrong if you know that information posted is wrong, and defamatory (impugns on the...View More
They, thru their agent, were very hard to negotiate w/ from the outset--always moving the bar right before we were to get under contract. Finally, we agreed on terms.

This is certainly a situation where you will need to consult with a real estate litigation attorney about what happened. The communications, their timings, and the purchase agreement all need to be closely reviewed to assess what your rights are, and whether you can obtain a "specific...View More
It comes down to the very specific information and portrayals depicted in the tv program, but 99.9% of the time: no. As long as the information presented is truthful, or at least based on a reasonable belief that it's truthful (ex: sources that appear reliable), any depiction is fair....View More
I want to provide a basic wilderness survival class to minors and adults, age 12+, that involves one day lecture (8 hours) and one day (overnight) practical experience (total of three days) in the wilderness (though, not the backcountry as medical services are readily near).

A person allegedly said I said some words to him after work he didn't say we got in a fight or I threaten him they fired me because he say she say my word and his word that's it and I think they were wrong
An employer can fire you for any reason at all in Virginia unless you have a contract or the reason behind firing you was based on unlawful discrimination (race; religion; gender; age; etc.). If an employer heard about you through another employee, regardless whether it was true or not, the...View More
I had a legal services contract totaling $20k. $10k Base legal services. Additional 10k if the charge went to jury trial. It ended up going to jury trial and i paid the extra cost. The day before we go to trial the case was Nol Prossed. What do i owe my lawyer?
It comes down to the very specific language of the retainer agreement. It may be interpreted that once preparation for jury trial commenced in anticipation of a jury trial, the attorney would earn the extra $10,000; but it may also be interpreted that only once the jury trial COMMENCED would the...View More
Generally, it's five years on written contracts as of the last date that performance was due (typically final payment). If no one re-affirms the contract after the final payment was due, the Statute of Limitations will trigger at five years and no longer be enforceable.

My former business partner bought me out of the business, however I am still a guarantor on a large SBA loan. I am trying to determine the financial health of the company in order to assess my vulnerability, but my former partner refuses to provide P&L reports or to acknowledge that I have a... View More
The easiest way is to refer to any purchase agreement for the business and see whether there are any terms that can be used for establishing your continuing right to monitor the business's financial health as it relates to the SBA loans. But if the purchase was done via a handshake agreement...View More
My husband and I want to open a video-gaming cafe that will have a gaming portion and a small pizzeria portion as well as a snack bar. When looking around for commercial space, a leasing agent commented that someone had tried a similar business model but ran into legal complications. I am currently... View More
I don't see anything particularly concerning about this business model. It's just an updated arcade that serves food. As long as you obtain all proper business permits including health permits, and establish appropriate privacy and internet security safeguards, there shouldn't be...View More

You may have claims against her for misappropriation of your likeness for commercial purposes. If you want her to stop her conduct immediately and have the pictures removed, you may want to consult an attorney to send her a letter informing her of her privacy infringements and warning that further...View More

At face value, it sounds like you might have some valid claims. But the only way to find out with some real certainty and fully assess your legal options is to consult a business/commercial litigation attorney. Attorneys need to review all the pertinent documents, correspondences, marketing...View More
The articles of organization and the operating agreement cannot limit the use of the power of attorney for members. If there is no prohibition on a non-member being given the POA to act on behalf of a member's part, it is most likely permissible.
The idea being that if the principal is not in BOD meeting attendance, then the primary is his proxy. If principal AND primary are not in attendance, then secondary is principal's proxy. Proxies are not addressed in Articles or By-Laws.
Also if valid proxies and all other directors are... View More
In theory, sure a director could have alternate proxies based upon availability, but it should very clearly be established in any appointment forms regarding the circumstances when a proxy has the authority to operate on behalf of the principal. I have to stress that it should be VERY clear....View More
