Will the county attorney accept my case if I want to sue the same person at civil court as well? a partner of my husband's LLC company had an agreement with us six years ago. As her husband borrowed loan from his bank and then turn around loaned the company 200K. they put lien on our house, took away our 65% voting right and she takes 36K salary as the administrator to manage the finance of the company. Six years later, while we thought we finally close to pay off the loan, she sent us a 150K bill saying that's the profit plus interest that we owe her as in the pledge agreement we signed we were supposed to pay her husband 15% share of profit quarterly but it was never paid. WE were kept in the dark all these years as she is the only one who has access to the company bank account and all the financials and refused to share any financial info with rest partners. She never showed up at work once and never work on any deals. she cut out all health insurance and company liability insurance and laid off our previous office manager because it's too expensive. She never once mentioned profits of the company. We now know that she was trying to maximize her husband's 15% profit. We also noticed that she paid herself more than that we have agreed to every year and she paid her husband irregularity over 60K over the years without our knowledge based on the tax return we have. We individually bear huge tax burdens throughout the years. We may have to pay big money to get everything recalculated as the number they showed our income on K1 is far more than we actually get every year. They are now holding company 60K in the bank account refused to payout any commissions. My questions are: With the tax number we have, the fact that she had cut all the necessary company benefits and the bill she sent to us on how ridiculous the profit is (they compounded some ridiculous interest to it) . Do we have enough evidence to prosecute her as a salaried employee for deliberately mis proposition company funds to enrich her husband and herself. or do we have to have everything audited? Will country attorney accept a case like this? Do we have enough evidence to sue her for keeping us in the dark and embezzlement? Shall we sue her or waiting for the settlement? The expectation is so far apart. Right now, they are threatening to close down our company if we don't pay them that amount while we think they are actually owning us money and they refused to show us the remaining balance of the actual loan amount. Their lawyer is trying to bring them to our perspective but the accountant refused to give him the formula of profit calculation. Shall we sue the accounting firm they are working with for the expense of recalculations of the past six years tax as they refused to give us the formula on how profit and income are calculated and refused to give us the check registry? Will country prosecutor accept our case if we want to sue them at civil court as well? What's the best way to approach this case to maximize the outcome at lowest expense from our side?
