Hello. My name is***** am an attorney. I will review your question. I may need to clarify facts first. I will answer & we can discuss issues.
Hi John: Sorry for this situation. A creditor can sue both the LLC and the person who offered a guarantee. So, I creditor would sue both but if the LLC has the money, the LLC would have to pay. Not sure if this contract stated New York as the jurisdiction. If so, you may have to go to New York. Sometimes a defendant can make a motion to dismiss based on lack of jurisdiction, but that does not get rid of the creditor's claim since it would be able to bring the action in the proper jurisdiction. I know this is not quite what you wanted to hear, but it is important that you know. We can continue to discuss if you want to do so.
