Customer Question
Need advice. Lawyer's Assistant:...

Need advice.

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

My daughter owns a day care center but because of state compliance points she had to give up the business for 3 years. She hired a consultant that owns 40% of the stocks and as her mom I own [email protected] and another partner owns 20%. The person that is serving as director has been caught with fraudulent activities where she had her grandchildren listed as part of the center, she swiped the card so that she could get paid for them attending but they never attended as she stated. She is also spending company monies for her personal gain. Columbus Ohio

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

The person has spoken to the state compliance person for licensing but not to the account. She has admitted and stated that she would pay the state back.

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

She has been asked by me and the other partner to send us all of the files with finances and she states she can get until this week. She also has placed supposedly a lawyer on as owner of the business for licensing of the center without the other partners knowledge

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.
