Panorama City, CA asked in Banking, Civil Litigation and Contracts for California

Q: Shareholder for my corporation withholding clients information. Can he do that?

I own a company that was turned into a corporation. The shareholder owns 80%. This shareholder also owns his own company in the same industry so it betters his chances at booking jobs. He is withholding information on clients and not giving any information to them or my self on where abouts. Some are more than 8 months. The shareholder has contracts and items on containers and storages that are in his name. He is denying involvement with my company although he is the only one on the bank account and I have a picture of the bank card with his name and my company name. I have absolutely nothing to help these clients and I worry he will seek some sort of revenge and do something to their items or worse charge them more. There is more to it and I have everything to give someone. The police say it's a civil matter and won't help. I can't afford a lawyer. We have a news crew investigating. Please help please.
