In a general sense, one of the goals of forming a business entity is to limit the liability of the owners to only what they put into the business and what it earns. However, the success of this goal depends on a lot of factors. You don't mention whether or not you actually formed a business entity, such as a corporation, LLC or partnership. Whether or not you did, and what kind of entity you used if you did, make a huge difference in addressing your specific situation. Even if you formed an...

Q: sign 60mth contract for security alarm. Moved out of state. Is it it voided now?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Civil Litigation, Contracts and Consumer Law for Arizona on
Answered on Aug 14, 2017

When it comes to interpreting any contract, it always boils down to the terms of the specific contract that you signed. With some notable exceptions, the courts and the law tend to stay out of contractual relationships, allowing parties to enter into contracts on terms to which both sides agree. As such, the answer to your question will be found right there in the contract that you signed. A lot of contracts like these (gym memberships, etc), where location is a critical element to providing...

Q: Can you be sued for referring another professional? Ex. can a cabinet company be sued for a counter top company referral

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Civil Litigation and Contracts for Arizona on
Answered on Jul 31, 2017

The bad news is that anybody can sue anybody else for anything any time. Our legal system is fairly efficient at then weeding out the baseless cases, or at least more efficient than most, but you simply cannot stop somebody from suing if that is what they are bound and determined to do.

Now, with that said, let's examine whether or not there might be any merit to a case for referring another professional. Basically, in order to establish liability, there would have to be some kind of...

Certainly, the day care center was negligent. From a practical standpoint, most attorneys limit their practices to cases involving some form of physical injuries. The laws, standards of proof, and collectible damages may be limited by the applicable law in place. Most personal injury attorneys will provide a free consultation. Contact a local personal injury attorney. I think that the main challenge in the case concerns damages.

Q: Do I have to let my customers know who my wholesaler is?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law and Consumer Law for Arizona on
Answered on Jun 11, 2017

Your question is a bit vague because it's unclear what kind of business you are conducting, and thus it's impossible to give you any kind of real guidance. For example, there may be regulations (federal or state) that require certain disclosures to consumers. Otherwise no, generally you are not required to disclose that kind of information. In fact, sometimes that information can be considered a confidential business asset. Again, these are generalizations, and there is no way to answer your...

Q: What would be grounds to initiate a judgment against a business that has been operating with the same name as an inc?

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law for Arizona on
Answered on Apr 6, 2017

More information is needed to answer your question. The first question is who owns the first location now and is it owned by a company (Corporation, LLC)? The second question is who owns the second location and was the use of the name consented to by the owners of the first place. You need to contact a local attorney who handles corporate and trademark litigation. I suspect what has happened is that someone took over the second location and continued to use the name without any consent. If...

Q: Will my license get suspended or revoked in arizona. 7/8 points with criminal ticket on the way

1 Answer | Asked in Business Law, Civil Litigation, Criminal Law and Traffic Tickets for Arizona on
Answered on Dec 28, 2016

Possibly, if you accumulated 8+ points within a year then you face a three month suspension or Traffic Survival School. Each speeding violation (including criminal speeding) is 3 points. If you are eligible for Defensive Driving School, ask the judge to see if he or she will allow it. That would dismiss the charge and keep you from accumulating more points. I'd recommend hiring an attorney.
