Where I can find the conditions valid for the removal of the president of a corporation?

The president of the corporation is carrying out activities that in my opinion are not legal. I am a shareholder and vice president but he has closed access to the corporation’s lawyers and told me to remove him will not bother him. I have no money to pay an attorney and is taking advantage of this situation. Where I can get help?

The first place for you to look at for the removal of an officer of a corporation is the corporation's bylaws. The bylaws of a corporation are the mechanism by which it and its officers operate the entity. Potentially there may be a mechanism set forth in the bylaws to remove the president of the corporation that you are writing about.

Another way to establish a basis for the removal of an officer of a corporation is to do research online for examples where corporate officers have been removed by shareholders in the past.

Good luck.
