Customer Question
I want to appeal...

I want to appeal a non-compete judgement. Who are specialists in this field?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

WA

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

We have a judgement but no orders yet.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Summary: I built the company up over 12 years. I became a 40% shareholder, and was then pushed out. I resigned, and was then injuncted not to work. 12 months later, judge decided the non compete was ok for 12 months. She also decided that my dividends over 3 years was a loan. I have a lot of grounds to appeal but cant afford it.

based on your situation I consider the restrain is to broad, but this will be subject to the contract, and on what grounds the appeal could be raised.
