Setting Up Your Corporation

A corporation is separate and distinct from the owner. The owner can open a bank account, own property and do business, all under the corporation’s name. The most important advantage is that owners, stockholders or shareholders, are not personally liable for the debts and liabilities of the corporation.

Before the idea of corporations was born, investors risked everything if the business failed. Today, investors can be shielded from this financial liability by forming a corporation. Corporations are the standard type of business formed. It can help reduce your taxes and protect your personal assets. I make the process of forming a corporation easy and affordable. I will create the legal documents and file the Articles of Incorporation with the California Secretary of State.

Dealing with an old case…

A defendant has a right to a speedy trial. This right can be violated when the government does not prosecute the defendant in a speedy manner. When this happens, a ‘Serna Motion’ can be filed. The goal is to show the defense is harmed because the government delayed. The delay is harmful because evidence that would show innocence is no longer available. Witness memory begins to fade. If the government delays for more than a year, prejudice is presumed.

What exactly is the delay? Sometimes charges are not filed in a timely manner even though the evidence is in the possession of the government.  Another delay is caused when the police do not perform the arrest warrant in a timely manner.

If the defendant wins the motion, the case is dismissed.
