Customer Question

I am currently located in Kentucky.

A few months ago, I did business with an online travel agent (through the mail, internet, and phone) in Albany, NY. Needless to say, that did not go well. I am looking to retain counsel and file suit. The travel agency's main office is in NJ (and that is where they are incorporated). The office I dealt with was in Albany.

Question: where do I sue them (NY, NJ, NY) because I'd have to retain a lawyer in that state, right?
