Attorney

Round Rock, Texas
10 Yrs Experience
Licensed in IL, TX
Valparaiso University School of Law

My clients know me as more than just an attorney. First and foremost, my background is much broader than that. Prior to attending the Valparaiso University School of Law, I earned a Master of Business Administration and ran a small business as a certified public accountant. Thanks to this experience, I possess unique insight which in turn allows me to better assist my clients with a wide range of business and tax matters today. In total, I have over 20 years of experience in financial management, tax law, and business consulting, and I’m proud to say that I’m utilizing the knowledge I’ve gained to assist the community of Round Rock in a variety of ways. In my current practice, I provide counsel to small to medium-sized businesses, nonprofit organizations, and everyday individuals. Though my primary areas of practice are estate planning, elder law, business consulting, and tax planning, I pride myself on assisting my clients in a comprehensive manner. Whenever I take on a new client, I make an effort to get to know them on a personal level. This, of course, begins with listening. It is important that I fully understand their vision so I can help them successfully translate it into a concrete plan of action that meets their goals and expectations. I appreciate the individual attributes of each client and know firsthand that thoughtful, creative, and customized planning can maximize both financial security and personal happiness. During my time as a certified public accountant, I cultivated an invaluable skill set. After all, while my legal education has given me a deep understanding of tax law, I would not be the tax attorney I am today without my background in accounting. Due to my far-reaching experience, I am competent in unraveling even the most complex tax mysteries and disputes. My CPA training benefits my estate planning practice, too. In the process of drafting comprehensive wills and trusts, I carefully account for every asset and plan for any tax burdens that may arise, often facilitating a much smoother inheritance for the heirs of my clients. Prior to becoming certified as a CPA, I made sure to establish a solid foundation in business both in and out of the classroom, and the acumen I’ve attained has served me well. Not only am I better able to run my own practice than I otherwise would be; I am able to help other small business owners fulfill their dreams, as well.

LLC

Texas

Asked on Jan 11, 2022

Change from S-Corp to an LLC?

I made an llc when I bought a rental property in houston. But I made it a s corp.

T. Phillip B.

Answered Jan 11, 2022

Making the change isn't hard and is a filing with the IRS. However, you are going to need to talk with someone (tax attorney or CPA) about potential tax consequences for any properties already owned by the LLC.

Terms and Conditions

Texas

Asked on Nov 29, 2023

Are terms and conditions legally binding?

I recently started a business and I am in the process of creating a website for it. As part of the website, I am creating a Terms and Conditions page. I want to make sure that the Terms and Conditions are legally binding so that if I ever need to take legal action against a customer, I am protected. I have read some articles about Terms and Conditions, but I would like to get a professional opinion on the matter.

J.R. S.

Answered Jan 5, 2024

Yes, terms and conditions on a business website can generally be enforceable against consumers. The enforceability of terms and conditions on a business website against consumers is not straightforward and depends on various factors, including the type of agreement used, the presentation of these terms, the consumer's acknowledgment of these terms, and the specific provisions within these terms. However, the enforceability primarily hinges on how these terms are presented and whether the consumers were given reasonable notice of these terms. There are three types of electronic form agreements typically used by websites to incorporate terms and conditions: "click-wrap", "browse-wrap", and "sign-in-wrap" agreements. "Click-wrap" agreements necessitate the user's express assent to the terms and conditions by clicking a button that reads "I Agree" or some other method of explicit agreement. In these cases, the consumer is presumed to be aware of the additional terms and conditions and consciously chooses to proceed with the transaction. "Browse-wrap" agreements include terms and conditions either posted on the website, a hyperlink, or are accessible on the screen, but do not require the user's express assent. The validity of these agreements depends on whether a website user has actual or constructive knowledge of a site's terms and conditions prior to using the site. "Sign-in-wrap" agreements involve notifying users of the existence of the website's terms and conditions and advising them that they are agreeing to the terms when registering an account or signing in. Courts usually enforce these agreements when the notice of the terms was "reasonably conspicuous." This can include situations where a hyperlink to the terms and conditions is present on nearly every webpage of the company's website, or when the webpage from which the user indicates their assent contains a conspicuous hyperlink to the agreement. However, there are exceptions to the enforceability of these terms and conditions and much depends on the type of business you are and the specific terms and conditions that you impose on consumers through your website.

Joint Venture Agreement

Texas

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

What's normal term in a joint venture?

I am currently in discussions with another company to form a joint venture to pursue a business opportunity. As part of our negotiations, we are trying to determine the appropriate term for the joint venture, including the duration of the joint venture and the conditions under which it can be extended or terminated. However, I am unclear on what is considered a normal or typical term for a joint venture, and what factors should be considered when determining the length of the venture. Therefore, I would like to seek the advice of a lawyer to guide me through the process of negotiating the term of the joint venture and to ensure that the terms are legally sound and meet my needs.

Answered Mar 21, 2023

A joint venture is a partnership organized for a specific purpose. Let's say that you formed a joint venture to renovate a house and sell it. The joint venture ends once the project is completed. In this case the joint venture would end when you sold the house, PS For more information about business entities, download a free copy of my ebook "Should Your Small Business Become a Corporation or an LLC?

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.
