Answer: This past year has been very busy, handling a lot of different lawsuits and business matters for our law firm's clients. That is always good from a business perspective.
But that is not a good excuse for not having written anything useful on this blog for the past 13 months. I actually enjoy writing and I know that I can and will make time to write each week about issues affecting our clients and others that contact us asking for assistance.
So, in the next few months, I promise that I will write in Jeff's Corner about a lot of different topics that affect businesses and individuals in Texas, such as:
- Statutes of Limitations - when is a claim no longer able to be legally enforced?
- Are oral contracts valid? When do agreements need to be in writing?
- Arbitration and Mediation - what are they, how are they different from each other and from using the Courts, and what do they mean in terms of resolving disputes?
- Business Formation – sole proprietorships, partnerships, corporations, LLCs, and more.
- Starting a Business in Texas: Licensing, Permits, and More
- Buying or Selling a Business in Texas - Some Legal Tips and Pitfalls
- Unenforceable Contracts - when is an agreement not worth the paper it's written on?
- How to Properly Defend a Breach of Contract Lawsuit
- Attorney’s Fees – Can You Recover Them from Opposing Party or, God Forbid, Be Required to Pay an Opposing Party’s Attorney’s Fees in Addition to Your Own?
- Temporary Restraining Orders (TROs) and Injunctions
- Personal Injury Causes of Action and Damages
Of course, in a blog post, there is no way to cover every possible issue that may arise or that applies to an individual situation. That's what good attorneys are there for and I hope that you will use what I do write as a springboard to allow you to think about and discuss any applicable issues with your chosen attorneys. Nothing I write here can ever be taken as legal advice to you because you first have to have established an attorney-client relationship in order to receive any usable legal advice.
Mostly, my sincere hope is that I will be able to explain some of these complex legal issues that regularly arise in our day-to-day businesses and lives in an easy-to-understand way. Then you will be at least aware of the issues that may apply to your particular situation and you'll know the types of things to discuss with an attorney.
