I am a former member of a band that recorded my vocals over an existing video recording that is used for acquiring gigs for the band. It was implicitly stated that they wanted to use my voice to improve their chances of getting gigs. I was unfairly fired from the band and want to know if I can collect a percentage of any gigs booked (and newly acquired venues) during my tenure with the band.
My husband moved to Florida as a recent retiree and a
My husband moved to Florida as a recent retiree and a disabled veteran. I joined him in Florida a few months later. In the meantime, he was swindled out of $80,000 by a con man promising my husband a partnership in his business. This con man bought new cars for his family and a minimal amount of product for the business. Less that 3 months later, the shop folded and the owner absconded with the 80K. This has devastated my husband and his health, along with our marriage, is going downhill. What recourse do we have?
My Grandson received a settlement birth malpractice
My Grandson received a settlement for a birth malpractice incident. Our attorney recommended an attorney to handle a "special needs trust account". Come to find out, the attorney drew up a trust but didn't put the money with it. He kept it in his operating account and when a bill was due, he would transfer the money to his IOTA account. He recently received a disciplinary revocation in the state of Florida. There are posts on the internet that he made a "career setting up special needs trust for maybe 100's of clients and misappropriating client funds that were supposed to be held in trust". My grandson's trust should have $45,000 - $49,000 in it but there is no bank account with the Trust. I have been advised to get legal counsel to remove him as legal counsel & pursue legal recourse. Also, to contact the FDLE about filing a criminal complaint. We don't have much money to hire an attorney to do this. Before I can file for the Florida Client Security Fund, he needs to be off the "trust papers" as Trustee. My husband & I are named as successor trustees on the "trust papers". What should I do?
I am currently working organization that has been using
I am currently working for an organization that has been using restricted donor funds to get by on our operating expenses, but is still reporting we have the full fund available. The board is aware but didn't know you couldn't reappropriate donor designated funds, they have viewed them as reserves. How do I report or address this? It has been going on for years. There was a large gift received that they "paid back" the restricted fund with but are still reporting the full gift as available undesignated funds.

Living trust question:Considering to have a Living Trust
Living trust question:Considering to have a Living Trust for a disabled child and a healthy child - how can it be done? Do I need a lawyer or a firm to be a "trustee? Which one is better, an individual lawyer, a legal firm, an accountant firm, or any other firm or individual? How do I decide from the above categories? and who to hire? Why? If an individual lawyer or accountant, should I worry about what if one day the lawyer/accountant no longer in practice, retired, or pass away? What about my Living Trust at that time? What if these things happen after my death?

I am going through a divorce in MN. I discovered that someone had accessed my Bank Account and transferred $6000 to another of my accounts and written to checks for $5000 and $1000 respectively. When I contacted my bank which initiated the Transefer they informed me that the request was made from my account by me. They also provided me with the address for the checks which happen to be my wifes attorney's. Is this Legal or even Ethical at all??
