Houston, Texas

Licensed in NY DC, WA
Wayne State University

July 29, 2023 My name is Diamond Simpson Roberts, ESQ, MSPH and I am convinced that I can be a value added asset to most any company. As the first in my family to graduate a four-year university, I graduated from Wayne State University Law School in 2000 but could not afford a bar prep course upon completion. After over 20 years, I sat for the July 2022 UBE, successfully passed and am currently licensed in three states! This is an example of my self-motivation, internal drive and passion. I offer over 28 years of diverse experience in healthcare, strategy, sales/marketing, legal/policy and business savvy. I have many years building, leveraging, and sustaining long term relations to drive revenue as an entrepreneur and for corporations. My analytical strengths provide me with an innate ability to think through tough situations/topics while viewing both vantage points (which is excellent for law and life). I have been appointed to serve on numerous committees due to my heightened ability to identify client issues and priorities and provide solutions based upon relevant products, services and needs. I have led teams with and without authority; specifically, I have managed teams for an Adult Foster Care Facility called Etonne Cares, during my post-graduate fellowship with the largest Catholic Healthcare System in the U.S. and during my two-year executive order appointment with the Federal Government (Presidential Management Fellowship). Most importantly, I am a collaborative team player who knows how to improvise, overcome and adapt! I offer numerous years of being a pharmaceutical trainer and being an adjunct using the online platform. I welcome the opportunity to continue in the interview so that I may further highlight the skills I can (and will) contribute to my success in the role.

Contracts Legal Questions and Answers

Contracts

Noncompetition Agreement

New York

Asked on May 23, 2022

Looking for legal advice on a non-compete agreement in NY State

I am an existing employee of a medium sized privately owed manufacturing company and have worked here for over 15 years. I recently was asked to sign a non-compete and non-disclosure agreement. I have had a series of promotions over the last 7 years but this agreement was presented several months after my latest promotion without any additional consideration for signing this agreement now.

Donya G.

Answered May 24, 2022

Signing a non compete or a non disclosure is not in and of itself illegal. In NY and in most states a non compete are individually accessed based on the language and scope (how long and what the non compete entails) and is generally examined by courts under a watchful eye as long as its not too restrictive or burdensome and would not prevent the free movement of goods and services. In order to advise you on your agreement, I would need to review it to advise you. If you need additional assistance, you may contact me directly on Contracts Counsel to engage my services. All the best. Donya Gordon

Business Purchase Agreement

New York

Asked on Oct 17, 2023

Can I update a business purchase agreement post-signing?

I recently purchased a business and signed a purchase agreement. However, I have since discovered that the agreement does not include certain terms that I believe are important to the transaction. I would like to know if it is possible to update the agreement post-signing to include these additional terms.

Damien B.

Answered Oct 21, 2023

Hello. You mention updating a purchase agreement. It sounds like your goal is to modify the agreement. And generally, the agreement itself would set forth how modifications can occur. Usually, modifications must be in writing upon the consent of the parties to the agreement. Therefore, if one party wants to modify the agreement because that party wants to include additional terms, the parties to the original agreement can enter into a written modification or addendum to the agreement.

Note Payable

New York

Asked on Oct 5, 2021

I need to sue on an unpaid promissory note

The note was written back in March 2019 I hired an attorney and he has done nothing for me! I made tons of requests to try to settle out of court with this man and he just keeps blowing me off

Matthew S.

Answered Oct 12, 2021

You need someone who will attempt to settle the matter for you and if that fails be prepared to sue on the note and take the necessary action to collect. This assumes the debtor has assets to collect against. It can take a while. I have had some folks pay relatively promptly, others several years. Communication between attorney and client is very important in this process. If you have no idea what is going on in your case you can get very anxious. I make sure you get consulted on each development and you get copies of each filing.

Commercial Lease

New York

Asked on Apr 25, 2023

What's the entire agreement clause in a commercial lease?

I am a small business owner who recently signed a commercial lease for my business premises. I am concerned about the “entire agreement” clause in the lease, as I am not sure what it covers and what the implications are for me and my business. I am looking for clarification on the clause and any potential risks associated with it.

Matthew S.

Answered Apr 27, 2023

This is a contractual provision which aims to prevent the party relying on it from being liable for any statements or representations (including pre-contractual representations) except as expressly set out in the agreement. It generally precludes the introduction of parol evidence or evidences of other agreements that are not in writing.

I never knew how difficult it was to obtain representation or a lawyer, and ContractsCounsel was EXACTLY the type of service I was hoping for when I was in a pinch. Working with their service was efficient, effective and made me feel in control. Thank you so much and should I ever need attorney services down the road, I'll certainly be a repeat customer.
