Erum Siddiqui Kistemaker is one of the 4% 
KistemakerBusinessLawGroupDaytonaBeachAccording to a survey conducted earlier this year by the American Bar Association - Commission on Women in the Profession, Women now make up a total of 33.3% of all employees in legal private practice with almost 20% of them working as Partners, another 15% of them as Equity Partners, 45% are employed as associates and only just over 4% are Managing Partners. Erum Siddiqui Kistemaker is one of the 4%.

There are two professionals every business will need early on:
an accountant and a lawyer
KistemakerBusinessLawGroupDaytonaBeachThe reasons for hiring an accountant are pretty obvious--you need someone to help you set up your "chart of accounts," review your numbers periodically, and prepare all of your necessary federal, state and local tax returns.

The reason for hiring a business attorney may not, however, be so apparent. A good business attorney will provide vital assistance in almost every aspect of your business, from basic zoning compliance and copyright and trademark advice to formal business incorporation and lawsuits and liability.
First, some general rules about dealing with lawyers:

If you are being sued, it's too late.

For the most part small businesses put off hiring a lawyer until the sheriff is standing at the door serving them with a summons. Bad mistake. The time to get good business lawyer is before you are sued. Once you have been served with a summons and complaint, it's too late, the problem has already occurred, and it's just a question of how much you will have to pay (in court costs, attorneys' fees, settlements and other expenses) to get the problem resolved.

Remember, as a small business it's easy to get into court, but very difficult to get out once you've been "trapped." Most lawyers agree that while nobody likes to pay attorneys' fees for anything, but the fee a lawyer will charge to keep you out of trouble is only a small fraction of the fee a lawyer will charge to get you out of trouble once it's happened.

Unclaimed Property?

Currently, the Florida Chief Financial Officer holds unclaimed property accounts valued at more than $1 billion, mostly from dormant accounts in financial institutions, insurance and utility companies, securities and trust holdings. In addition to money and securities, unclaimed property includes tangible property such as watches, jewelry, coins, currency, stamps, historical items and other miscellaneous articles from abandoned safe deposit boxes. Unclaimed money is deposited into the state school fund, where it is used for public education. There is, however, no statute of limitations, and citizens have the right to claim their property any time at no cost.

Check out this
website to see if YOU might have unclaimed property.
