It is silly in your scenario, but many like you go through it. Many set up a corp for the reasons you have, but the rules in place aren't a consideration. Honestly, my opinion is that many people in your type of situation don't actually have the 'meetings'. I would guess a percentage don't even write up any notes or do anything. Another percentage don't have a meeting and do write up notes. And another percentage have a meeting and write up notes.
Has anyone else, as a small business like this, had corporate meeting minutes play a role? I guess it could in depositions and court hearings. Thus your lawyers recommendation I suppose.
You are not the only one who feels that way. I'm sure of that.
