I am fully insured, bonded, and licensed but I want to make sure that will protect my personal assets if something does happen one day. I have been researching how... View More
An LLC can certainly provide an additional level of protection for your personal assets, when properly set up and properly run. But, as you pointed out, you would likely need to open a new bank account and set up your license, insurance, bond, etc to reflect the LLC. Some of those things you might...View More

I would like to start a business somewhat related to healthcare. I don't have any type of medical license, and I want to make sure that I won't be accused of practicing medicine without a license. I'm looking for an attorney with whom to share my plan in detail, and who could help me... View More
A Washington attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. Your points are valid. A health care attorney could be a starting point. A business formation attorney might also be able to offer guidance as to options available in forming a business. Good luck
You could repost your question and add "Trademarks" as a category. That's probably why it remained open for two weeks. Some questions go unanswered, but you could have better chances of a response with the added heading. Good luck
It depends on the type of goods or service the contractor is providing. For example, if it is a construction contractor, you should seek an attorney who practices in the area of construction litigation.
Basic idea: while browsing online, people come across others that appeal to them in some way (insightful post, match in interests, etc). Normally, a long process of scanning through their content is then needed, to see if they match enough to be worth further effort.
On the face of it, there is nothing in your proposal that would infringe copyright rights or constitute an invasion of privacy. None of the refinements offered in items 1 to 3 really affect the answer substantially. You will want to look carefully at Reddit's terms of service (including...View More
Determining whether a product infringes a patent is not a do-it-yourself project. It is governed by federal law and not the law of any particular state. Many times the analysis is complicated. If you have any investment at stake, it should be cost-justified to consult a patent attorney.

A Washington attorney could best advise here, if there were any state consumer laws that might be applicable. But your post remains open for three weeks. There wasn't a question here, but if you are wondering if this gives rise to a legal claim, there doesn't seem to be a significant one....View More
It would depend on what the basis of the lawsuit was, but an attorney in each of the categories you list could probably advise you on the downside of working off the books. Maybe one of the most pressing issues is workers' comp coverage for an on-the-job injury. Good luck
I became aware of the fact that I cannot register this car in my state due to emission laws. I have repeatedly asked the dealer if it would pass in my state and received vague answers. I want to unwind the deal. Again, the dealer still has the car:(
