Non-Compete Agreement - The Prenuptial Agreement of Employment Law

Sanders Law Firm, PLLC – Randy W. Ivie, Attorney 336-724-4707

It’s a classic story line. Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Boy wants to marry girl but fears the loss of half his wealth if the relationship falls apart. This is followed by the boy’s awkward attempt at broaching the subject of having girl sign a prenuptial agreement.

Today is a cause for celebration. We just successfully completed three years in litigation in a file. The defendant on a couple of occasions appealed orders to the N.C. Court of Appeals. We got his appeals (yes, plural) dismissed. Last month we had our final motion to complete the case. The time has run for the opposing side to appeal. This case was an oddysey.

Bonded & Insured claims by Maids, Tree Guys and others

Have you ever received a business card that says "bonded and insured?" What does it mean? Is it important that a business providing you services be bonded and insured? Being bonded means that the business has securely set money aside with a bonding company that is available to you as the consumer should the business injure you or your property in some way.

Winston-Salem, NC -- A Winston-Salem Bicylist, Katherine Shubert, was killed in a biking accident in Summerfield. An SUV hit her as she was cycling at 7:10 p.m.

Notice by Publication Tip--in Forsyth County use the Clemmons Courier

I see it regularly. Some poor soul publishes a Creditors Notice for an estate or Notice of Service by Publication in the big paper in Winston-Salem.
