Financial planner in the Bay Area & knotty tax problem I'm afraid of!

I'm looking for a fee-based financial planner in the Bay Area to help me figure out one simple problem, and one knottier one. I have about $10k in CDs, and I'd like to invest it in a slightly smarter, similarly low-risk way (probably index funds) that I can add to slowly and in (relatively) small increments. I'd probably also like to start a 401k. Unrelatedly, as a child I was gifted $3k in shares of a single bluechip stock that I've never touched, and it's accrued value gradually but steadily over several decades. Recently, talking to a wiser friend, she pointed out that I've never paid taxes on it! I'm not sure how to deal with that, but probably can't avoid it much longer! How money works is confounding to me; I come from a working class background and am good at saving, but not saving wisely. Anyway, I'm primarily looking for financial planner suggestions, but if you've dealt with related stock/tax issues please share your experience and advice! Throwaway: infernalsockpuppeteer@gmail.com if you'd prefer.

Recommendations for Puget Sound civil law firm

A verbal promise for partial ownership in the company I work for needs to become a paper contract, and given the power differential and the several years since this promise has been discussed in detail, I need recommendations for the best possible attorneys to have on my side. This is in the Puget Sound area.

Didn't file 1099B correctly last year, got a letter

About two years ago I got into the stock market. I bought and sold a few stocks, ended up losing a few hundred dollars overall. I discovered a year later that I had to file a 1099B, but I wasn't really clear on the concept and couldn't figure out how to do it online, so I didn't get it done until like half a year after I had filed my regular taxes.

Does shorting the competition count as insider trading?

I work for Acme Widgets, a competitor of WorldWide Doodads. I know that tomorrow we will be releasing an amazing widget that is going to completely outshine WorldWide's product lineup. Obviously, I can't do anything with Acme's stock - that would be insider trading. But what about shorting WorldWide's stock? Is that allowed?
