Customer Question
I was sued individually...

I was sued individually as a minority member of an LLC for the acts of the LLC. Can you tell me what motion an attorney would normally file to remove me from the litigation? This action was in Florida.

Lawyer's Assistant: Can you tell me what state the LLC is registered in?

Georgia

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been officially filed? If so, what?

I had a lawyer (case was initiated 8 years ago), but I just found out I was never release from the case and my attorney says he doesn’t remember what happened.

Normally it would be a motion to dismiss on filing of the case. If did not happen earlier, can pursue a motion for summary judgment.

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.
