ABOUT THIS CASE
Helping Clients with Whatever We Can
Sometimes clients come to our firm for assistance on one particular legal issue or a single case. However, in the course of providing services, our attorneys often recognize that a client may require help with several different legal matters – sometimes without a client even knowing it. We take the time to truly listen to our clients so that we can provide help in any way we can. Legal issues are often intertwined. We take the time to untangle and solve every strand.
A client came to our firm for advice on the appropriate legal structure for a new business. In getting to learn of the new venture, we provided guidance on how to form and operate a limited liability company, or LLC. But in speaking with the client, we came to learn that a portion of his wages were being garnished because of an old child support case in Texas. We also came to learn that the client was frustrated and concerned because his homeowner’s association was possibly engaging in careless or even fraudulent acts as to the collection and spending of homeowner dues. While we assist in corporate legal matters and business formation, we really don’t assist with matters of family law and possible criminal acts. But we do like to help.
Our legal team went to work on three fronts. In particular, we assisted our client by:
- Filing the appropriate LLC documents with Washington’s Secretary of State
- Drafting an Operating Agreement for the business entity
- Gathering child support documents from the appropriate Texas courthouse
- Requesting and reviewing financial documents from the client’s homeowner’s association
- Attending homeowner’s association meetings to learn more about board members and the community
We were able to effectively assist our client with all three issues. We successfully formed the LLC and the client is now successfully running his own business. After learning more about the child support issues and speaking with attorneys in Texas, we were able to connect our client with a Texas family law firm that helped with wage garnishment. Finally, after reviewing financial documents and speaking with multiple parties, we helped the client better understand the operations of his homeowner’s association and the avenues that homeowners could follow to decrease dues and ask for more transparency.
