I am an up and coming musician. A company reached out giving me the opportunity to work on a song for them. Would signing the “Name and Likeness agreement” give them the rights to all of my music and branding or just for this one song?

In a conventional breach of contract situation, the most...Read more »
I am planning on selling my house in the near future. I have a poor relationship with my neighbors but they would like to get their hands on my property. I want to ensure they cannot buy my property in any way.

I have my child every weekend and 1 week a month, my ex wife decided out of the blue that she now wants it one week on one week off so she gets weekends too. I work out of state during the week and take one week off every month. If this change goes through I will have to leave my job of 15 years.... Read more »
