Education Law Questions? Ask an Education Lawyer
Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am an attorney with Just Answer. I'll be here to help today! Do you mind if I take a moment to review your question?
By the way, the system will automatically ask for a phone call. By no means are you required to accept it.
The answer to your question is yes, you can not only go through arbitration, but you could also sue in civil court. You may need to check the terms of the agreement to determine for sure whether you agreed to arbitration, but you should be able (and I would recommend) settling the dispute informally.
Based on what you provided, I like your causes of action. Oftentimes, schools that do not provide the proper materials; guidance; or instruction will often be liable for fraud because they had no intention on having you pass the exam. If you pass the exam, then you have no need to continue to pay for the course or any new study materials. As such, you should pursue this argument. One way that can help you professionalize what you wrote is by putting this on pleading paper. I have attached a copy of pleading paper to give you an idea of what you can do.
Follow up questions are free so did you have any additional questions? If not, were you satisfied with my service today?
Oh I totally wish I could, but I'm not licensed to practice in your state so I wouldn't be able to do it. What I would recommend those is putting big headings in your pleadings so that way it is easier for a judge or a mediator to understand your organization. For example, you could put "First Cause of Action: Beach of Contract for Providing Insufficient Materials." Then write your argument. The next one could be "Second Cause of Action: Fraud in the Inducement for Failing to Providing Promised Guidance and Network." Or however you want to do it.
Usually, the remedy for these kinds of things would be limited to what you paid in tuition, plus your books, and a little more to compensate you for the headache. So, let's say you paid a total $750, you should probably request at least $2,000. You may end up settling at $1,000 to $1,250.
You could also file a complaint with the department of consumer affairs in your state. Oftentimes, they may help "shake the trees" a bit and help give you even more guidance on how to handle this situation.
Hi, I noticed that we never had a chance to reconnect on this. I’m totally ready to help. Did you have any follow up questions for me or any other facts to add? If not, would you be so kind as to rate your opinion of my service?
Potentially, but they would have to be licensed in your state to actually do this. You may need to ask another question stating, "MD Lawyer only" and then ask your question. This way, the attorney that answers will be able to help you and won't get in trouble for unlawfully practicing law outside their jurisdiction.
i totally understand. I think that you did a good job on this so far. Honestly, you may even need help from a lawyer based on what you did. It is much better than the ones I have seen.
That's going to be a breach of contract action. The breach of contract action is because they made a promise to support you, but they did not. Because they did not, it contributed to you failing the test multiple times.
I'm sorry to hear about that. Have you considered the state bar association or legal aid to find an attorney?
Oh my goodness that is terrible. It's a long shot, but you may want to (click here) to find another attorney. This link is for personal injury attorneys, but they may, just may be able to help you out.
I believe that you have a reasonable case. However, how successful the case is depends on a lot of factors outside of my control and understanding. You may want to consider working with the company themselves if you haven't already to resolve this matter informally because taking this through the courts is always risky.
Hi, I am sorry but I am traveling right now. Let me take a look at your latest post later today so I can help you out:-)
