Are you a small business owner? or thinking about starting a business? Or do you have an existing business that now has a business, contract or employment issue?
With business disputes, we first try to keep a dispute from become a lawsuit. If we can find a way that protects our client and serves their best interest, then we always try that first. If, however, you are already in a lawsuit, then we immediately go to protect our client, keeping in mind what is best for you.
With starting a company, we look at what our client ultimately wants to accomplish. We then match their goals with the type of legal entity that best suits those goals. Often a corporation or LLC is needed. But this is just the start of a company. Whether you're a corporation or an LLC, the real goal is to grow your business. That is where we really thrive in our support of you and your business.

- Q. Hi, which licenses are needed for a business that holds customers money in accounts that they can access across country?
- A: Hi, every state is going to have a different law and most will require a slightly different type of license. The most common type of license is a "money transmitter" license. Most, but not all, of these licenses are regulated by each state's Department of Banking Department/Division. Others will be regulated by that state's Attorney General's office. The actual names of the departments/divisions will vary in each state. The cost of each license will also vary, but it may cost you somewhere between $35,000 to $80,000 to achieve a nationwide properly licensed company. If that cost is within your range, contact me.
- Q. What permits/licenses are required in unincorporated San Bernardino County CA to sell and sample prepackaged jerky?
- A: Hi, the permits/licenses you will need depend on where you are going to "cook" your product as well as where you are going to sell your food. Since you are planning on making your jerky in unincorporated San Bernardino, CA, you should start with the County of San Bernardino. Their website pages that deal with food preparation is: The best place to start out is http://wp.sbcounty.gov/dph/programs/ehs/applications/. If you are serving the food, you should also check out: http://wp.sbcounty.gov/dph/programs/ehs/food-handlers-managers/. If you are going to sell the products under a name different than your own, you will need to either incorporate with the California Secretary of State or get a fictitious business name from the county of San Benardino here: https://www.sbcounty.gov/ARC/Main/RecorderClerk/FbnInfo.aspx. You may also need to register with the Franchise Tax Board and get a seller's permit. Then, you may need to register with the city/county where your stores/farmer's markets/street sales are located. This will vary by location. There may be more registrations needed as well depending on each city and what else you are doing. If you would like to go forward this, feel free to contact me.
