San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera has reached a $400,000 settlement Wednesday with Lacayo & Associates, an immigration consulting business the city sued last year, claiming it was providing immigration-related legal services it was neither authorized nor qualified to perform. Calling the San Francisco business a “predatory” operation charging thousands of dollars for “incompetent or nonexistent” legal work, the city sued the firm’s owners, Leonard Lacayo, and his mother, Ada, August 2016 for allegedly defrauding clients by leading them to believe that Leonard was a licensed attorney and advertising legal services to the city’s immigrant community for decades.

- Co-working space offers treadmill desks, kitchen and more
By Christopher Snowbeck - Thursday Sep 21, 2017
MINNEAPOLIS — When Anne Hendrickson was driving around the Twin Cities as a freelance consultant, she found herself wishing for a space where she could easily combine work with physical activity. The ambition inspired Work It LLC, a business Hendrickson opened last month in St. Paul. It’s a co-working space that rents desks to freelancers, with the twist that clients can walk on treadmills or pedal a stationary bike while they work. There’s also a small on-site gym, showers and a kitchen complete with free olive oil for cooking. Hendrickson hopes the action-oriented amenities will help the business stand out in the increasingly crowded co-working market.
