“I much appreciate the clear and concise advice in a very straight forward business communication style! Shawn is a fountain of business knowledge that he can couple with his legal expertise to communicate with the business world as well as the public at large.” G.M. "Shawn is my attorney for 4 businesses including one that is international. He is precise, thorough, and is always looking out for my best interest. His follow through is impeccable and he goes the distance in making sure I understand the legal jargon. If you need someone to get the job done right the first time - contact him immediately. I depend on him fully for all of my legal issues”. D.L. “He is professional, and very knowledgeable and responsive. I have worked with Shawn on more than one occasion and I have found him to resolve my legal issues promptly and with an impressive expertise and at a reasonable price. Shawn is very thorough when it comes to protecting and representing his clients, and when I work with Shawn I am completely confident that I am in the best of hands. Shawn is the guy you want in your corner!” T. “I appreciate your ability to help me quickly clarify legal issues and to guide me toward a negotiated settlement. You have helped me avoid making decisions that escalate a problem while keeping an eye on the bigger picture of solving problems. In the end, it is about conflict resolution, not about being right.” A.H. “I am so happy to have such a great and accomplished attorney on my side who is a bright and creative thinker and always looking out to protect my interests, and who is also pleasant to know and work with, (that's a really unusual combination)!” T.F. “We would have been completely lost without Shawn’s guidance. I had a client that was not paying me for my work and was also trying to hold my money hostage to try to make me sign a completely inappropriate NDA. Shawn handled the situation perfectly and not only was I compensated in full

Q. I am 1 of 5 partners in a new LLC and need help reading through a contract before I sign. What type of lawyer do I need
A: Well, first question ... what state is the LLC Operating ... is the LLC a "member managed LLC" or a "Member Managed LLC" ... third, will you be a majority holder of LLC interests ... or a manager of the LLC ... Always best to schedule a free initial consultation with at least two business development attorneys ... not necessarily litigation law firms... you would be looking for a business transaction attorney who has experience both as a business owner/business consultant and as a business development attorney ... make sense?
Q. Is it legal to require a minimum number of hours worked per year to keep an ownership percentage in a company?
A: As you might imagine, it depends upon both what is written in the LLC Operating Agreement and how it is written. Various provisions such as the one you are sharing ... are enforceable in certain circumstances ... so, what I would suggest is that you share the signed agreement with an attorney and engage a free 30-minute video call consultation with the attorney of your choice. Does this make sense to you?
Q. On any legal document such as a contract or affirmation statement, does the acroynym or abbreviation have to be defined?
A: Well, certainly, the intention of the parties needs to be clear ... and if an "acronym" or abbreviation is not cogent or comprehensible ... then the term may cause confusion in the minds of the parties. As a general rule, the court prefers that the drafting of the document satisfy the "fifth grade rule" in that a fifth grader understands the document and what is being required by the parties ... make sense?
