A joint venture contract was signed and the other person put a name of an LLC that was not filed until the following day, it showed up officially about 5 days later on sunbiz.org. I want to know if I can claim this contract void if the day of signing the agreement, their LLC did no exist.

Im trying to file a lawsuit against a store for defamation of character and slander. I have a very solid case, but if their corporate office would like to offer me a generous compensation to me instead of me taking this to court and filing a lawsuit against them Id consider doing that. My question... Read more »
Decades ago I learned that whenever I had a brand new idea to write, say or do something that appeared to be ground-breaking and never before written, said or done by anyone else I would stop and ask myself this question: "Why has no one ever thought of this before?" The answer is...Read more »
The unfounded changes were made by defendant while plaintiff was in the middle of the contracted job, and made so that defendant could further enrich himself at plaintiff's expense. Thus, plaintiff left the job and sent a bill in lieu of future services that were to be performed by the... Read more »
It definitely helps your case to send a demand letter with an itemized bill. If you are in the contracting business you should have a lawyer on retainer. Breach of contract cases can be tricky and the judge may have to weigh if it is fair for the defendant to pay the full price of the contract...Read more »
My ex boyfriend refused/refuses to return my fathers ashes. I live in Florida and he lives in Texas, and with the covid travel restrictions I cannot travel there to file a claim against him myself, but I’ve read an attorney can do so for me. He’s said the ashes were disposed of but I can’t... Read more »
Whatever type of attorney is needed, he/she must be a member of the Texas Bar in order to represent you in Texas court. Unless your ex took the ashes from Fla. to Texas, he would have to be sued in Texas. Also, if Texas Court's operate the same as Florida's, you don't have to...Read more »
You can download it from the Clerk of Court's website in most counties. Check https://browardclerk.org/. If you do not find it there, download the Florida Rules of Civil Procedure at https://www.floridabar.org/rules/ctproc/ and the form is towards the end of the document.
I am the plaintiff in a fraud case against a bank and other defendants. Defendants have justifiably submitted RFPs. Case began in 2017. My computers, phone and ipad were imaged to retain document integrity. My first law firm procrastinated providing any of my documents, emails, contracts and other... Read more »
If your documents are on a hard drive it is likely there are alot of documents. Your attorney has to review and possibly redact information from your documents which would take considerable time. I do not know if your attorney has filed an objection to any of the documents requested since there...Read more »
I am wondering if a judgment creditor can pierce the vail of homestead exemption from forced sale if I have a home office/business in my house, (not open to the public, just for storing inventory and selling online). It would be about 15% of the square footage of the house.
Most likely would not lose the exemption if it is indeed your primary residence. To be certain, however, my firm would have to conduct research, so you cannot take this answer as legal advice. A couple steps to start with are: (A) contacting your local tax collector's office and ask them if...Read more »
What do you think is an appropriate amount to ask for in a DEMAND LETTER where a large corporation calls the POLICE on someone with a disability for no reason (EARLY AM), when they know I am a delivery driver. They illegally detain me, refuse to let me out of the large business (use intimidation... Read more »
Among other problems your case would have, a judge or jury is extremely unlikely to be able to find an amount for money damages. They will probably find that it's more likely than not that you would have spent the same amount on therapy in any case.
My ordeal began a year ago- I used to have an attorney but now proceeding pro se. My attorney sent a demand letter to my former employer and reply came from an attorney who was employed by a firm at the time. Fast forward a year-I Googled the firm and the attorney is no longer with them. I Googled... Read more »
to their cars. If they sue how can they prove this? At least 3 others nearby shot off fireworks too. They sent a pic but it doesn't show scratches or anything and the cars are a few years old. Should I ask to see estimates?
Yes, and ask for their proof that you, and not someone else, caused the damage. For only $1,200, it is doubtful that an attorney will want to spend that much time on what I'm guessing would be a small claims case, so it might not go beyond the demand letter. Contact your homeowner's...Read more »
I am 21 living in a trailer on my parents property. I have left a gate key at someones house and cannot get to it. I was let in with an extra key. My mother has refused to lend me the key to get out or open it herself when I need to leave the house. She has stated I should jump the fence. When the... Read more »
Yes, that constitutes false imprisonment, which is a crime. Of course, if you have not made legal arrangements to give yourself the right to live there (such as a lease), your parents may order you to vacate, then evict you if you don't leave. Sounds like you need to make peace with your folks.
My lease end date is for July 5th. I sent a notice on June 5th as we were not sure if the Covid cases will continue to increase/ decrease before our move out date. I have moved out of the apartments last week. Is it possible to fight the system as I don't think I can manage 2 rent payments at... Read more »
No lawyer can solve a problem that has not happened. So if you are still planning to move on July 5, you will need to wait to see what the landlord is going to do after you move out An option would be to stay put, and then see what happens. That will make you a 30 day tenant not encumbered by any...Read more »
