Moreover, they could issue non-party subpoenas to obtain testimony and documents from the business, so long as they are seeking relevant...Read more »
My present husband was erroneously added to an Abstract of Judgment against me from my ex husband. Now his sole and separate property which he purchased with inherited funds has a cloud on it's title. The attorney for my ex husband has continuously filed and recorded documents with no legal basis.
There are too many variables and unknowns to give you a conclusive and complete answer, but we can move towards one. An abstract of Judgment is supposed to accurately reflect the terms of the Original Judgment. Accordingly, your first task is to compare the Abstract to the Judgment. If your...Read more »
If for some reason the Complaint must be verified, or you choose to make it verified, the verification MUST be attached, for it to be verified. In most cases, the Complaint is not verified and the point does not come up.

You are premature in looking at a legal malpractice lawsuit. As with almost all civil litigation, you must prove damages in order to prevail.

There are property rights that can be gained through the concept of "Adverse Possession," but these rights take years, not months. I don't see how the management company can force you to move out of a motorhome that you own, but without a lease, it can certainly force you to move the motorhome.
You don't say where your corporation is incorporated, but as far as I know, upon organization, the shareholders can draft their by-laws and share holder's agreement anyway they want. If you agree that this 50% shareholder has the deciding vote, then you are stuck with it. Typically the...Read more »
All states I am aware of, require a registered agent, to receive official process, like lawsuits, but there are few formalities. A registered agent need only be an adult resident of Nevada. If you live in Nevada, you can be your own resident agent, or you can have a friend act. Moreover, you can...Read more »

I am not advising you not to pay your annual minimum tax, or not to dissolve your LLC; only what will happen if you don't. If set up properly, the minimum tax is assessed against the LLC, not you. If it is not paid, the LLC will be suspended. If you do not dissolve the LLC and do not pay...Read more »

There are way too many blanks in your question to provide a meaningful answer. Has a lawsuit been filed? If not, be sure they don't stall beyond the running of the statute of limitations. If a lawsuit is pending, simply do whatever you need to do to go to trial.

Yes indeed. In California, a "forged" deed is "absolutely void;" even as to innocent parties who come after. If you are tricked into signing a deed, it is a different story, and it may not be so easy. But in my view, a lawsuit to "cancel" the forged deed would be a...Read more »

Since taking on the category of Legal Malpractice, I have received hundreds of calls from people relating the horror stories of what their attorney has done to them. My only take away, is that we can only speculate as to why any attorney does anything.
My father passed away and left no will. He and my mother were divorced, and he lived with another woman for 18 years unmarried. There are a few small things I would like to have as keepsakes, and his vehicle was in his name alone. As his blood relative am I entitled to these few things? or is... Read more »
As a practical matter, there is no common law marriage. However, there is the concept of a cohabitation agreement, made famous in the Lee Marvin case. Lee Marvin's partner proved to the Court that Marvin had promised to share his life and all his property with her. If your father's...Read more »
To answer your question, one must know a great deal more about what you mean by "did a fraud on my properties." If the properties have been taken out of your control, for example if someone sold your properties without you even knowing it, you need to immediately file a lawsuit, so you...Read more »
After working for the company for a few years they required us to sign a non-compete. I was paid a small amount extra as consideration. In 2015 I got a promotion and they moved me to California. The company is headquartered in KS and I am employed in California. Does that invalidate the non-compete?
Obviously, the terms of the agreement, and the circumstances surrounding it, will be the biggest factors in evaluating its enforceability. However, non compete agreements, especially in California are difficult to enforce.

There are a lot of missing facts here, but I agree completely with your refusal to "let it go." The issue here is too important. At a minimum, you should go to the Bar Association, and consult with an attorney to help you sort it all out.
Frankly, I would be surprised to find an attorney who is interested in transactional work, who works on an hourly fee basis, who would not jump at the chance to take work on a contract by contract basis.
