My wife and I live in Texas and we are being sued for the

My wife and I live in Texas and we are being sued for the rent of a failed business in Virginia. We made a rookie mistake and signed a very bad deal. One of the many problems is the lease had a personal guarantee and even though we tried to end the lease without it coming to this, I am pretty sure we will be hit with a judgement for $500,000. We don't have anything close to that sort of money but we do have two other businesses. One is a Virginia Corporation that is operational and the other is Texas LLC that is not yet open.As I understand Texas law, if a judgement is won in Virginia, it will need to be transferred to Texas for collection and then Texas law and exemptions will be in effect. We don't own much so I believe all our possessions including wages will be exempt and the Texas LLC is also safe. My concern is for the Virginia Corporation. At this time that is my only source of income.My wife and I are the only shareholders in the Virginia Corporation. The stated value of all shares is $500 The 2016 gross will be around $200,000, we get a salary of $20,000 and there will be a net of $30,000Since the suit is only against my wife and myself and not the corporation, I believe the corporation can operate as normal including selling some or all of its assets. Is this correct?If so, our plan is to sell the assets of the Virginia Corporation. I have a potential buyer and think I can get 80 to 100 thousand. We would pay all the current debts of the corporation then use the rest to pay a salary to my wife and myself (wages are exempt under Texas law). We would then invest that cash in the Texas LLC. The result is someone else owns and is running the Virginia business, we still have a Virginia Corporation but it is out of business and out of money and a Texas LLC that is funded and ready to open for business.Please let me know if this makes sense, if I am missing something or if there is a better path.Thank you for your time and consideration,

Fifteen months after engaging my attorney, I finally got him

Fifteen months after engaging my attorney, I finally got him to send me the bill. I asked for it three months ago. The bill seems outrageous - $33K for a FCRA credit reporting errors dispute. I'm guessing that the settlements are totaling around $40K based on convos I had with him over the summer.Ok so I am reviewing some of the charges and I noticed that he has received a settlement agreement from one defendant in September, and had settlement discussions with another just recently as November. Although he has emailed me asking me to call him, I have asked him to send me updates via email on the case. He has not done that. I'm guessing since I won't call him then he is holding his ground and will not update me in the manner that I requested. I asked this before on this site, but I only want to be updated via email. Am I putting myself in a bad position? I mean who wants to talk to someone who is squeezing you out of everything? Everyone is losing except the attorney. He is the one who is winning....
