I'm having a hard time registering a Trade Name in Oklahoma.

I'm having a hard time registering a Trade Name in Oklahoma. The trade name we want to use is "Muskogee Tree" but apparently the state of Oklahoma considers it a conflict with the name "Trees Inc" because the state is ignoring the geographical location at the beginning of our DBA name. My question is - if I registered "Muskogee Tree Trimming and Removals" as the official DBA name, put that on our trucks and shirts, but also used "Muskogee Tree" for short on some items, or in conversation with customers - or perhaps had the customers make checks out to "Muskogee Tree" (so long as my bank would accept them) would I be breaking any laws or on shaky legal ground with the state?

I went to the bank with my documents to get a copy of what

I went to the bank with my documents to get a copy of what my business partner had submitted to remove me from the account,and the bank refused,and removed my online profile of the account now I'm blind to see the business proceeds that the company is making. I hired an attorney as advised 3 weeks ago but they have done nothing to help my case. Can I file something to close the business,but more importantly file something to keep him from spending the business proceeds or using the company tax ID to open another business account. How do I report him and his aunt who works at dcra? I feel like this matter is taking too long because the business is not worth $100k I guess. Please help.

While working with a previous business, I spent months

Hello.While working with a previous business, I spent months designing & creating a very creative business display showcase for an industry show. To be noted-I owned every single item that was on display. This showcase is a portion of my resume and, obviously, both the other business and myself have images of the showcase display many places online as promotion. I am unsure when this occurred, but it has recently been brought to my attention that the other business has removed myself and my business name from the 'credits' on all of the images associated with this event. In addition, there are numerous additional ways in which they are using photos, in which, the photographer, the dress designer, the florist, etc. are ALL given their deserved credit, but I am not as the stylist and/or decor designer. Do I have any rights in this situation?

Had a national transmission shop diagnose problem with my

Had a national transmission shop diagnose problem with my truck as an internal issue with the transmission. they replaced it along with a number of other things, speed sensor, computer, ujoints and this cost me close to $4000, was completed in early october 2015. i got the truck back and within a week I noticed it was still doing the same thing, shifting very hard sporadically. I took it back they had my truck again and for a few months I went back and forth with them trying to determine what was wrong. they eventually put in another new transmission. this has still not resolved the issue. Now, they have informed me that I need to take the truck to the dealer (ford) because there is something else causing the problem it is not the transmission. I need to know what I need to do here, I feel they have tried to help but their initial diagnosis was wrong and now I am out 4000 and its going to cost me again to take the truck to Ford to have it diagnosed. what are my options and rights?

Is it legal to use the words 'We are the ONLY

Hi,Is it legal to use the words 'We are the ONLY ones...' in our marketing:"We are the ONLY ones who do xyz." (even though there are many other companies that do the same thing as you do)?What other statements are we allowed to legally make without substantiation? "We are the best..." "We are the leading manufacturer of x..." "We are the #1 makers of..." ?Thanks

I saw your answer too late, and am sending a note to Just

I saw your answer too late, and am sending a note to Just answer so I can rate it 5 stars.Followup: so what happens if plaintiff sent it to wrong address (they had the correct address in their complaint and on all notices) and we received it too late to take action (they sold off the storage during that time).If clerk was supposed to, what happens if they goofed? Below is the question, which you already answered.In California, does a creditor have a legal obligation to timely inform the debtor that the creditor has obtained a judgment? The complaint was served on the debtor, but not defended, as the money was owed. The notice of judgment was sent to an incorrect address (creditor knew correct address as it was even in their complaint).We are the debtor.This relates to a sale of storage (self-storage firm) items wherein if the debtor found out in time about the judgment (and the amount), he could have called to settle. The goods were sold at auction 45 days later without proper advertising of the event.

I operate a local news site in NJ that is dependent upon

Hi,I operate a local news site in NJ that is dependent upon subscriber support. We came up with the idea of cross-promoting with local businesses to give away unique items to our paid subscribers. For the past month we've been advertising a giveaway (a one-of-a-kind skateboard made by a local company) that will be awarded after a drawing next week. I am reading over some of the stuff that's written about contests online, and I don't want to run afoul of the law to host this project. We've already had lots of other businesses inquire about how they could be partners in these areas, too, so we think it's a good opportunity to reward our subscribers with unique opportunities. Is there any way we can do this without getting into trouble or being told we're running an illegal lottery?
