I was part of a software start-up back in 2004. After 10 years building the company my former business partner is trying to cheat me out of the stock I earned working for no pay for the first 3 years. My lawyer is working on this without any up front money and we have been entangled in this now for 18 months. We are going to trial in august and out of pocket expenses have started to mount. In order to take this all the way I need this money. I am not the kind of person to ask for things but this is too important for pride. If you have ever been cheated by someone you know how I feel. Thank you for your help!
