I am sorry to hear about your situation. Unless you had a signed contract with them nothing prevent you from doing direct work. You may have a claim against west rom for what is called "tortious interference with an existing contract." This claim is based when a 3rd party tries to interfere with another contract between two parties. You have some significant damages not only for the loss of this client but the impact on your relationship with Armed Memphis investments and the potential income from them. I would suggest you talk to a business litigation attorney here in Dallas to pursue the claim. I also practice in Texas so if you would like to talk via phone, we can do that for an additional charge.
