Re; Conflict of Interest. I chair the Board of a Public Benefit Corporation. (Medical Center) We have physician representation on our Board. ( She is also an employee of the PBC ) When we discuss physician recruitment and compensation we go into executive session. Query : Should the physician be asked to leave or should we wait for her to recuse herself? And if we wait and she doesn't , what should be the action of the Chair ?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
