Business Attorneys In New Jersey

Why Getting and Outside General Counsel is Cost Effective

Star Ups and Small Business are more than 50% of employers in America.  They have to maintain their inventory, their employees and the payments on track in order to succeed. Having their own in-house counsel  is just too costly.

The problem for a lot of this small companies and start-ups is when they try to do the legal work themselves. We see people with no legal background trying to file lawsuits, writing agreements and really getting themselves in a lot of trouble by not getting legal help.

For example writing non-compete agreement, is not as easy as you won't copy with me sign here. Choosing your corporate entity, bylaws, articles of formation. An attorney can help you because it would save you from a lawsuit in the future. In the construction world we see small contractors performing work without contracts and getting into a Consumer Fraud Act Violation.

Planning for Children in Case of Deportation

The current immigration climate is tense. Undocumented people fear not only for deportation but also for the care and wellbeing of their children.  It is important that people that are undocumented make plans in the event that this situation takes place. Among the first things to be planned is the provision of care and supervision of minor children while the parents are in the process of the deportation.

It is important to keep all detail information of the child. If the child is an American Citizen, having their passports updated should be a priority. In addition, it is often suggested to create a power of attorney limited to the event of deportation. In this power of attorney, the parents should assign a guardian to take care of the child and allow permission to travel with the guardian.
