Signed an advertising deal with Wisconsin based company which I am now in the process of terminating by way of paying an early termination fee. My question is since they failed to inform me of my right to terminate and no where on the contract does it state it, do I have grounds for a complaint?... Read more »
Unfortunately, not every written contract is required to have a free "I've got second thoughts and want an early out" clause. In fact, you should be glad the contract even has an "early termination fee" clause, because that is not required everywhere either.
I signed contract in Ga with representative from a Wisconsin company. I am 22 and representative took me to fancy place and offered food/drinks I got caught up and signed a pretty bad deal. I will pay their early termination fee if have to but seems a little unfair. The salesperson told me that if... Read more »
Unless you signed the contract less than a week or ten days ago the "cooling off" clause has probably expired. Claiming to have been taken advantage of because the sales guy plied you with fancy food and expensive booze while he was convincing you to sign the "bad deal" will not work. Believing...Read more »

In Sept, we got a rough estimate from a local tree trimmer to remove 3 branches from a tree overhanging our home. He was too busy for such work at the time. We agreed to wait until he was free, then we would revisit the estimate and specify the specific work we were looking at. 5 months later,... Read more »
Based on your facts, it does not seem that you had a contract. A contract requires a meeting of the minds (i.e. exactly what work would be done, when and the cost). As I understand your situation, you wanted 3 limbs removed, which did not include one containing a woodpecker nest. You asked to...Read more »

The rules are a bit different depending on whether your business is a Sole Proprietorship (Schedule C), a C-corporation, or S-Corporation. If you're like most taxpayers, you're probably using a Schedule C to report this to the IRS. In claiming business use of a vehicle, strict rules must be...Read more »

Talk to a local business lawyer, and you'll probably benefit from talking to a CPA also. Usually, the decision is between an LLC and an S-Corp, and there are multiple ways an LLC can be taxed. The best solution for you depends on your specific circumstances and goals.
If it's two businesses, it would be two LLCs. I have filed Articles of Incorporation, and I also practice real estate law.
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can setup a time to meet.
